    Read Me Starting Over (Capri & Asher)

    Post by AsherJayden on Mon Feb 21, 2011 3:22 pm

    First topic message reminder :

    CREDS TO WHOEVER MADE IT::

    Girl: Capri

    Setting:
    Your history: You've lived in (insert town name here) all your life and grew up with everyone in it, along with your pretty large family. You've always been quiet, but you used to have a goofy side to you. You work at the local bike shop as the manager. You used to ride yourself, compete and everything, had sponsors, you were quite the big deal as well as your best friend (insert friends name here). Until one day after a party on your way home you got in a car accident killing (Insert same friends name here). Since then you've been walking around with a cloud over your head and you became an insomniac.
    My history: I just graduated from school and decided I couldn't take my mother anymore so I ventured out to see my dad, his new wife and newborn daughter. I wasn't looking forward to it, in fact I only came on impulse. But all my life I've been forced to study, study, study. There was no time for parties, friends and all that fun stuff. My parents divorce hit me the wrong way messing up my sleep pattern with their late night fighting, so I am too an insomniac.
    Story: So I'm new to town and landed a job at my step-moms boutique on the boardwalk right next to the bike shop. It's late at night long after the boardwalk has cleared and I'm out for a stroll when we meet. Will the stories unfold? Will you show me around town? Who knows what this summer has in store for the both of us as two loners venture out on a quest to give a second chance at a deserved childhood.

    I raised an eyebrow, even though Capri wouldn't be able to see it. I didn't understand why she was laughing or why it was important that I worked next door.

    "Uhm yeah.."
    I continued. "Business is really shot here. I was wondering if I could make my way over for a little bit? Just for my half hour break?" I said as I grabbed my sunglasses, wallet and cellphone off the counter.

    He hadn't laughed back. I realized that how weird I would have sounded to him. Oh, well.

    Turning away from the girls, I became genuine, "That'd be great. there isn't any business over here either. And I don't really get a break, seeing as I'm one of the only workers."

    "I'll be right over." I smirked into the phone. I hung up and walked to the front door, putting up a sign and then walking out. I locked it and shoved the key in my wallet, walking to the next door over into the bike shop.

    "Hey." I smiled as I walked in. Three giddy girls turned around, faces flushed and smiles wide. "Uhmm," I paused. "Hello?" I said questionably.

    I covered my mouth to hide my smile, "Heyy." I said back. "Business is way too slow today."

    The girls' seemed anxious to talk to him, but it was obvious that I was interfering. Better luck next time. They smirked, though it was all just a facade, and walked out of the store with various winks and giggles at Asher.

    I waited until they left to laugh, a wide grin on my dark lips while doing so.

    "What?" I smiled as I walked closer to her. Her grin large and wide on her face. "What are you smiling about?" I leaned on the counter and looked towards the door when a couple came in, looking for a double seated bike.

    Still smiling, I symbolically waved it away, "Those girls," I said, "They come around here every week and just gossip non-stop. It's funny to mess with them."

    I chuckled softly and turned back to see the same three girls walking back and forth in front of the store window, trying to catch a peek inside. I smiled and turned back to Capri.

    "So, I was thinking..." I paused, and took a deep breath. "Maybe we can go out for lunch or dinner tonight?" I looked into her eyes. Scared of being rejected and regretting having even brought it up. "I understand if you don't want to." I said looking down.

    Something twisted in my stomach. I was caught off guard. Having not dated or even talked to anyone with a trace a testosterone was taking its toll on me. Maybe I was ready? I honestly couldn't tell. But I couldn't say no. I would hate to be in his spot right now.

    With a blink of my amber eyes and a small smile, I tried to wipe away my worries. "Sure," I said, my smiling facade not breaking, "Sounds like fun. If I can clear it with my parents."

    I nodded and smiled. "Sure thing." I smiled. I took a business card from the counter and a pen. I wrote down my number and I slid it to Capri. "Give me a call." I smiled.

    I turned away and started to walk towards the door of the bike shop. I opened the door and three girls were standing right outside. I turned, with the door open, and said loud enough for them to hear; "I'll pick you up at 8." I walked out and smiled towards them. "Ladies." I bowed my head with a smile and walked back to Glamour.

    "I look forward to it!" I exclaimed with a wide grin as the door jingled shut. The girls' blinked slowly, their expressions of amazement.

    Once leaving my shift, I hurried home. It was already 7pm and I only had an hour to get myself ready. As soon as I got home I hurried to my bathroom, undressing as I made my way there. By the time I got to my bathroom, I was already halfway undressed. I hurried into the shower and sped through it as well, but making sure I cleaned up nice.

    I brushed my teeth and combed my hair. I dressed in causal but nice wear. 7:47; my clock read. I grabbed my keys and a jacket as I headed out the door. My wallet in my mouth, my phone in my jeans pocket, I tried to put on my jacket as I unlocked my car. I drove to Capri's house and parked in her drive way. I went to the door and rang the bell.

    Taking a deep breath, I hesitantly examined myself in the full-sized mirror in my bedroom.

    My usual long, dark hairstyle was now swept up into a pin-straight, sleek ponytail, the end of it touching the middle of my back. I'd been a while since I'd pulled the hair off of my face. My high, arched brows seemed to make themselves known more than usual as I looked at them with seemingly sharp amber eyes. My clothing, since I didn't exactly know how to dress myself for this evening, was that of a comfy pale lavender dress that went down t about mid-thigh accompanied with a long grey cardigan and some white flats. Tying a thin white leather belt around my dress and cardigan, I gave myself a reassuring nod.

    I didn't leave a note for my parents or anything. Why would they care?

    Was I really doing this? Going out with an actual peron? Yes. Making a friend? Maybe. Going on a date? No.

    No. Definitely not. I wasn't ready for that. What, I'd only known him for barely 24 hours now? Surely he wouldn't be moving that quickly...

    Thankfully, just as I my stomach churned nervously, I shook myself, standing up straighter. And then the doorbell rang. Before another wave of nausea could hit and I convinced myself to play sick, I grabbed my cell phone off of my desk, placed it in my cardigan pocket, and ran down stairs to open the door, turning the lights off as I went. I took one last deep breath, then opened the door.

    I had my back turned to the door when I heard it open. With my hands in my pocket, almost knocking myself over, I turned swiftly. I smiled upon seeing Capri. "Hey," I smiled, "you look great."

    I stepped aside, letting Capri in front of me. I walked to the car, opening her door for her. I wasn't being flirty, just polite... Right? I cleared my throat and shut the door once she sat. I got into the car and drove off.

    "I hope you don't mind,"
    I started, "the restaurant isn't super fancy. Just something casual. After all, it's not as if I'm trying to pick you up." I joked.

    "Thanks," I said, "Not to shabby yourself." After situating myself in the car, I answered him, "It's cool. I'm good with that," Tapping my food to the beat of the radio, I unconsciously ran a hand through my black ponytail.

    OOC- We need some drama. :3

    ooc: baby mama drama... hahaha. maybe your mom shows up.. or something.. i dont know.. lets see where this 'non-date' leads us

    bic:

    As we eventually neared close to the restaurant, I started to get anxious. What if she wanted it to be a date, and I said it wasn't? What if she doesn't even want to be here? What if... what if she doesn't even like me as a person and is only here because she feels pity for me?

    As thoughts ran through my mind. I started to close again. My wall being rebuilt. All my secrets and background being shoved into their tight locked cages behind the wall. I got out of the car after parking it and walked to her side, opening hers.

    Stepping out beside then, I glanced at Asher from the sideways and shut his car door. I returned my focus to the building in front of us, realizing that he was quite nervous. I was good at reading people like that.

    I opened the door and walked in after her. The hostess asked for my name, and upon receiving it, she grabbed two menus and escorted us to a booth. I thanked her and sat down, opposite of Capri.

    "I hope you like it here."
    I said with a small smile, as I opened my menu.

    "Oh, I used to come here all the time after school with my friends." I said, just as a pang of pain went through my stomach. I smiled to cover it up. The place reminded me horribly of Lena, but I didn't show it. Or I'd start hyperventilating or something. I looked at the menu, trying to be nonchalant.

    "Oh cool." I smiled picking up the menu and looking through. For some reason, whenever I was nervous, I didn't have the best of appetites. But I couldn't not eat. I brought her for exactly that reason.

    The waitress made her way towards the table and smiled as she took out a pad and a pen. "Can I help you with something?"

    I looked at Capri, then up at the waitress and smiled. "Can I get a sprite for now? I still haven't decided what to eat." She nodded and wrote it down, then turned her attention to Capri.

    "Iced tea for me, Gina," I said to the waitress with a small side smile. I knew her from high school. She nodded her brown head and turned to walk away.

    Slowly, my head turned to Asher. I analyzed his face with amber eyes. Something was wrong with him. I've always been able to read people easily; I'm very intuitive. "Are you alright?" I asked, already knowing the answer.

    I nodded and plastered a smile across my face. "Yeah. Are you?" I didn't keep eye contact with her. I felt as though I would throw up if I did. My eyes darted back in forth in nervousness.
