I'll try to make this short and sweet, but it'll probably be impossible. I'll start from the beginning... when I first got over my former crush (we'll call him Tropes), and started liking Chuu. The switch was gradual, actually. I had already known Chuu for some time, and he was one of the people that teased me incessantly about liking Tropes. Tropes was in my Japanese class in Sophomore year, but we didn't actually have much in common as I originally thought. I just fawned over him like the pus-muffin I am. But Chuu was in my Japanese Club. We had a lot in common. A LOT.
So naturally, I started talking to Chuu a lot more, but my current Tropes obsession stopped me from having any feelings for him. Sophomore year was the first year I became really in tune to boys. I was confused. Chuu became a good friend, and Tropes was the source of my innermost anguish.
Until, that is, Chuu started dating Goth.
Goth was also in the Japanese Club, and Chuu's Japanese Class. No one really understood the pairing. It's rumored that Goth is so good at manipulating people, that when she started liking Chuu, she convinced him to like her, and they started going out. Goth liked Para-Para, was tall, with short blond hair, reasonably pretty but not gorgeous, and an awesome artist. She was also a complete jerk. All I ever tried to do was give her a cupcake, and she told me I was stupid and my eyes are too big! How rude. Chuu and Goth's relationship ended in July. She broke up with him because he wasn't "manly enough." Chuu was devastated, so we all tried to comfort him. He got over it quickly. They never kissed or anything.
And THAT'S when it sparked. After Valentine's day, my feelings for Tropes went into the proverbial ditch of anguish, and suddenly I didn't care about him. I had liked Chuu a bit before he started dating Goth, but now, my brain was prodding me to look at the possibilities. So when the new school year started, I did. And that's when all of the confusion begins. Chuu is nice. TOO nice. And he only lives around the corner from me. So as we got to know each other, visits became more frequent, and we go on walks every weekday after school with the other kids in my neighborhood (my best friend Bookworm and my ex-best friend, Lard). TIME SKIP TO A FEW MONTHS AGO!
Chuu is also good at sending mixed signals. One night on Mabinogi (an MMO we play together), I mentioned that I was depressed, my throat hurt, and I wish I had hot chocolate, then I got offline. Ten minutes later, he shows up at my door with a giant mug of hot chocolate, sitting on an adorable little plate outlined with three perfect Tagalongs, because he knows I love chocolate and peanut butter. I am speechless. He leaves with the most amazing grin on his face. Not long after, he wins the dodgeball tournament, and because he doesn't like candy very much (he's a health nut), he gets a Reese's as his prize... and you guessed it... he tapes this candy bar to a piece of paper, puts it on my doorstep, and writes on the paper in orange marker "I won the dodgeball tournament! I don't like candy very much, so I got this! Enjoy!"
This is just some of the stuff. You'll hear about more later. The point is, he does things like this... A LOT. I heard that he did things like this for Goth too. You think then that it would be obvious, right? But no... there's a problem. You're forgetting he's a complete sweetie, and six girls have liked him this year. And you're also forgetting something you don't know yet.
There is a girl I know from Japanese Club, in his Japanese Class, and also a senior. She looks exactly like me, but more feminine, with a large chest and frilly clothes. Everyone calls her my twin, so here, we will call her... Twin. Twin is a flirt, although she is quiet. Chuu likes getting quiet people to talk, and he also feels like he needs to protect short people. Twin falls into these categories. So, Chuu follows her around, teases her, and acts generally friendly. You can see where this is going. Twin likes Chuu too, and flirts with him RELENTLESSLY. Even though she knows I like him, she continues. Twin... has recently become my main competition.
BUT.... I'm the one who asked Chuu to prom. How did I do it, beasties, bloggers, and bloggees? Like a true geek. While we were on Mabinogi, I rented a blimp, and Chuu and I soared above Longa Desert skimming the ground for things to kill. That's when I leaped on the opportunity to bring up the coming promenade!
"So, I heard from Ichi (cut me some slack here, I know a lot of people, but Ichi is basically this guy we're both friends with who refuses to come out of the closet!) that you're not going with anyone to prom!"
Suddenly, the capslock was gone, and the conversation became serious. Oh goodness. "Yeah, so?" So? SO? He sounds so SUSPICIOUS!
"So! That's boring! BORING BORING BORING! Why are you going alone?!"
He explained to me that the only reason anyone needs a date to prom is to dance, and he didn't plan on dancing. I continued my rant about how boring that was for about 10 more words, and then blurted "Instead of going alone, you should go with me!"
Long pause. Blimp continues flying. There's no escape. We're on a blimp. What do we do? We don't crash, that's what.
"Are you srs?"
WELL NO DUH! "Yeah, totally srs!"
"4 srsly srs?" What's that supposed to mean? Don't you believe me?
"I accept this proposal!"
And that's it for now, bloggers and bloggees! You're not quite up to speed, but that's the basic deal! We'll continue this in the next post so I don't flood you with information and lots of reading! Y U NO LIKE READING MOAR?
