This is one of my best stories, because, unlike most, I don’t cringe when I read it. Lol just kidding.
“Waaaoooooh!” Jayme says loudly, her face twisted into a frustrated
knot. Her feet are wedged into a too-small pair of ice skates, and she is
struggling to stay up. She glances towards her friends, Oliver and
Melissa, to see how they’re doing. They are gliding side by side
gracefully across the ice. They make it look so easy.
“Hey Jayme, you okay?” Melissa shouts from the other side of the
“Let’s see, my skates are too small, I can’t skate, and you guys deserted
me… No I’m doing just peachy!”. Melissa makes a slightly offended face,
and bursts out laughing.
“I’ll take that as a ‘no’ then?”. Jayme nods
grumpily and crosses her arms over her chest, then begins sliding
forward on the ice. Melissa and Oliver glide over to her, and each puts
one of her arms over their shoulders.
Jayme pulls a a face and says, “I’d rather go to school on a Saturday
than do that again.”
“Stop being so obstinate. Sheesh, girls.” Oliver cuts in.
Melissa punchs him in the arm “Shut up, stupid.”. Oliver looks hurt by
his girlfriend’s insult, but he quckly recovers and decides that he
probably should “shut up”. Aftere a while Jayme feels Oliver reaching
behind her back to tug Melissa’s hair playfully.
“Hey loverboy, concentrate will ya’, or I’ll pull your hair.”.
He looks at her innocently and pulls his hand back, pretending nothing
happened, then begins whistling.
“Good boy, we’re on land now, so if you’d like you can walk next to
your girlfriend. Unless of course you’re enjoying
my company?” She bats her eyes flirtatiously.
“Oh, uuhhm, what to do what to-” He quickly goes behind her and
begins to walk with Melissa,
flashing back a smirky grin. Melissa laughs at him and says
“You’re so cute, this is why I kept you.”.
Jayme pretends to puke and Oliver sticks out his tongue at her.
“Melissa, I find your taste in guys appalling.”.
“What about my taste in guys?” Oliver says jokingly.
“I find you appalling.” she replies. He whines like a puppy “But I’m adorable.”.
“Yes you are.” says Melissa in a sweet voice.
I hope I don‘t regret this.
