"I mean, you could probably still find some of those things on the internet for free, Jeremy said, referring to music and
maybe the strippers? He wouldnt be surprised if there were some strippers cheap enough to do it for free out there. Of course if they were doing it for free then theyd probably be terrible strippers but still, that didnt disprove the notion. Detail. But go on. Jeremy was a little interested in this
pretty forced segue that BB was going on. It was pretty obviously leading to something interesting. Maybe once she got to the point hed mock how corny she was sounding right now. Itd probably make her laugh. Way she was talking it seemed like she knew how corny she was being too.
And then she basically asked him out to the dance.
kinda sounded corny saying that
She had asked him out to the dance.
wasnt exactly what he was expecting her to say. And it wasnt the thing he wasnt expecting but was secretly hoping for, either. BB asking him out just kinda came out of the blue and he wasnt really sure how to respond to it.
The Sadie Hawkins dance was certainly something that he knew about, considering the whispers that he had heard around school. He wasnt really that interested in going, though. The event kinda required the girls to ask out the boys and
going out with someone who was interested in him wasnt really a mistake that he wanted to make again. Going stag seemed pointless, and his parents were going out to some party or whatever, so he decided that he was going to have the night to himself a bit. Play games. Watch the newest episode of Worlds Apart when it came on. Maybe get over his loss and finish Bravely Default.
Yknow, normal things. What he always did when an event like the dance came up. What he always did when he had to stand up and take charge because he just wasnt that type of guy. He wasnt the strong, outgoing leader that his parents wanted him to be; he was the introverted, moody, and selfish kid who rushed into something too quickly a long time ago who was still paying the price for it today.
So for the second time now: When BB asked him out to the dance, he had no clue how to respond.
was planning on staying home and doing things then.
Jeremys hands tightened slightly, and he tapped his fingers against his waist, looking away from BB. Again, still not sure whether to say yes or no. He liked BB (well, not in that way, but still), and he didnt want to disappoint her, but there was just something in the back of his mind telling him to say no. That itd go as terribly as it did last time. But still, he didnt want to be rude to her, and he knew her enough, more than he knew about Cadeyn during middle school.
Besides, it wasnt like this was actually a date or anything, he didnt have to take it so seriously.
But yeah, Im single, he spoke out, turning back to face BB. I was planning on staying home on the night, but I can totally come with you, if you want.
