Count Me In
I cringed. "Sh*t." I mumbled. I straightened up and put on my best smile. I turned around to face Julia, who had called my name. "Heyyy!" I did my best to sound happy to see them. Julia squeeled and ran to gave me a hug. The confusion must have been obvious on my face, for she looked at me and laughed. "I'm just so happy to see you! It's been like, ages, girly. What are you doing here?" I could totally tell she was faking her enthusiam, so I played along. "Oh, I know! It does seem like ages. You look great! I'm just here to get a good work out in, ya know. What about you?" Her eyes scanned my body, from my sweaty work out clothes to the hair stuck to my face from sweating. She almost cringed, but managed to keep a smile on her face. "Oh, we were just practicing tumbling for cheerleading next year. We're totally going to make it!" At this point both Claire and Caitlin had joined, and Julia gave them both high fives. I laughed a bit, trying to sound interested. "Are you going to try out?" I stopped laughing and looked at her. "Oh no, you know how I am.. I can barely touch my toes." She gave me a sympathetic look, like I was being serious. What a stuck up. "We could totally help you with that! In fact, we were going to go to the mall next weekend, and we would love to have you join." "We would?" Caitlin asked, puzzled. Julia turned around, and if looks could kill, Caitlin would have died right there. "Of course we would, girls. This is Amanda we're talking about." She turned back to me and gave me the cheesiest, most fake smile I had ever seen. I was almost in shock, so I didn't answer for a moment. "Oh I don't know, I might have chores, and I don't have any money." She shook her head and waved me off "Don't worry about it. You know what? I'll pay for everything you get." My eyes widened, "What?" She laughed. "Don't be silly, I want you to hang out with us! What are friends for, right?" She winked, and swooshed past me, with Caitlin and Claire close by her sides. "I'll call you." I stood there for a moment, watching them leave. What had just happened? Julia, wanted to hang out with me? AND she was going to pay for me to go shopping with her? This was insane. I walked out the door, and started walking home, my thoughts occupying me. I barely even noticed that I passed my house, and had to backtrack. I unlocked the door and ran in, to where Luke was sitting on the couch watching T.V. "Where have you been, 'manda?" "Nowhere." I mumbled, and headed up to my room. I had to tell Sara, she wouldn't believe this. I sat on my bed and took out my phone, and pressed call. "Hello?" she answered. I laughed, saying, "Sara, you are NOT going to believe this."
