Oh Hey next chapters if it matters.....
Hey journal! Berlint here! Okay, so you know that super hot guy, Gage? Well I think we are hitting it off! I just might have a chance with him! Crazy right!? Oh, but there is one thing. He may like some other girl named Arhina. I met her a few days ago when I was riding horses with Gage. I thought I told her to stay away, but guess what happened today? Gage and I were gonna go on the zip line and we saw Arhina and some other guy
Why did that girl have to ruin Gage and my time together!?! And what was that thing with them just staring into another's eyes?! I thought I told her to stay away! She probably doesn't even like him! Does he like her?!! Not possible!
Wow I'm just screaming at my journal, I thought. I was in the Cabin now, thinking about what had just happened. Maybe I should just go up to her and tell her to back off. But would that stop her? Um obviously not. So what can I do? I could pair her up with someone else......or I could "be her friend" and tell her to go for Blondie. So much better. Okay, now Gage. There's no telling if he likes her or not....but just to be safe, we gotta make sure Arhina seems interested in something else. Just in case. "Hey Berlint, are you in here?" Marion called from outside of the Cabin. "Yeah, c'mon in." Maybe Marion could help with some details of the plan. Marion peeked around the corner. "Hey." Is she scared or something? "Hey Marion. What's up?" Marion came and sat down beside me. "Nothing much. You writing?" I quickly closed my journal. "Yep." Marion stared at me. "So what's going on with you and that gave dude?" Marion, oh Marion. "His name is Gage, and nothing really." Marion smiled. "Oh really?" "Um yeah. Why do you ask?" I put my journal back into my suitcase. "I don't know, just wondering." She poked me. "What's that supposed to mean?" I asked, looking at my arm. "Oh never mind!" She got up and walked out of the Cabin. I smiled and got my notebook out to work out some details of the plan. I'll ask Marion to help later.
I sat by the wide lake with my toes dipped into the water. The tingling sensation of the freezing cold water felt so good to my confused brain. Did you see the way he stared at me?! I replayed the image of his eyes over and over again. If only I'd had a little longer, I could maybe be able to tell what he was thinking! I threw a stick into the water. My face was still burning. Does that mean he likes me? I have no idea! In so bad at telling this! Maybe it was nothing....maybe he just was staring at me because we are like friends........he probably doesn't like me. Yeah, he likes the other girl. My eyes began to tear up. Stop it! I suddenly felt a warm hand on my shoulder. I jumped. "Ha you jumped like Six feet high!" Kyle. Shoot, I'm crying! I turned my head. Hopefully he can't see. "Hey Kyle." He sat down beside me. It looked like he was trying to look at my face. "Wait are you crying?!" Shoot. "No! I'm not, my eyes um....they're um....." thin brain think! "I'm sorry if I scared you.....i don't mean to do anything." Kyle looked at the ground. "No, no Kyle. You didn't do anything. It's just um.....my eyes are just um....watering..." finally! "Are you sure? You can tell me anything. My lips are sealed." He turned and stared at me with....what I've never seen that face before. He looked kinda cute when he did it though..... Arhina seriously? What I'm just stating facts! I just started at him. "What?" He asked. "Ha right. You can't keep secrets Kyle. You almost told Gage that I liked him." I pushed him playfully. "Woah!" He fell backwards into the lake. Oops. "Nice." He said once his face came up from the water. I was laughing pretty now. "Sorry! Didn't mean to push you that hard!" I held out a hand to help him. "Thanks." He smiled and grabbed it. Then I felt myself falling in as well. "Kyle!" I yelled and then hit the water. He was laughing so hard. "Wow, that's the oldest trick in the book." I glared at him. "Not funny." I started to swim back to shore. "Hey, you did it to me first!" He swam ahead of me and splashed water in my face. "Kyle seriously!?" I grabbed his foot so he would stop and maybe, just maybe drown. He started coughing and kicked me. "What now your trying to kill me?" I smiled and swam to shore. I saw Gage watching us from a distance. How long had he been there? I walked over to him, forgetting how wet I was. "Uh hey Gage." "Hi Arhina." He seemed to be avoiding eye contact. "What's up?" "Nothing really......" What's with him? Kyle ran up to us. "Yo Gage! Arhina pushed me into the lake!" Dude! Your making it sound weird! "By accident!!" I glared at him. Gage just stared at us both. "That's....Nice I guess?" Kyle laughed and leaned against the drinking fountain. A leader came up to us "hey guys, were gonna go really far out up that mountain to camp. All the leaders are asking you to get a backpack and nothing bigger to take up the mountain. We will only be there for one day. We are also gonna split up into groups of 7 or 8. You guys should get your stuff now." He patted Gage on the back and ran towards a golf cart. "Okay so that's cool." I said. "Yeah, I hope I get put in a group with a lot of girls." He smiled and looked at me. I rolled my eyes. "I'm gonna go pack, see ya Gage." I turned around and headed back to my cabin. "Hey what about me? No "see ya Kyle, my buddy old pal old friend of mine?!" He called after me. I shook my head and kept walking, smiling the whole way.
