Dear Diary

This was a YA prompt I had to do…Not my best work

Dear Diary,
I kissed Logan tonight at the bowling alley. Seriously. I didn’t realize he was even there until he asked if he could just me, Corine, and Skye in our game when we started. He was there with his parents and was bored when he saw us. Of course we couldn’t say no. Skye and Corine just gave me a sly side eye when he sat down. They know I have had a crush on him since 5th grade. Suddenly there he was in his blue sweatshirt smiling at me. Before I knew it, my mom texted me saying she was on her way to pick me up. I left Skye and Corine to finish their game to wait for my mom outside and Logan followed me out. I am not really sure how it happened. I just remember laughing at something then him being really close, then kissing. I can still smell him on my shirt.

Dear Diary,
I saw Logan at school today. He actually made a point to meet me after every class to walk me to the next one. He almost kissed me again, but Mrs. Miller came around the corner first and told us to get to class. Why couldn’t she have been a minute later? Then, he texted me in Science class and asked me to officially be his girlfriend!!! OMG!!!

Dear Diary,
I love Logan Cumberland. We are going to get married at 1st Presbyterian Church and live in a little house with a picket fence and a dog. Our children will be named Lacey and Jordan.

Dear Diary,
Skye said that Erin heard that Jake told Stacey he saw Logan kiss Paige MacAddams. Seriously. Paige MacAddams. Like she is really his type. I asked him about it and he said that was crazy, then put his arm around me. I knew it couldn’t be true.

Dear Diary,
I invited Logan over for dinner Friday night and he said he couldn’t make it. It sucks. I barely see him in school because of football practice. Skye said not to worry about it, but I can’t help it. I keep having this vision of him kissing Paige. I believe him when he said he didn’t do it, but then again. I don’t know. Corine says I am just being jealous.

Dear Diary,
I failed my math test today. I studied for it, too. This is going to bring my GPA way down which means I may have to give up Debate Club. My mom said it isn’t a big deal, that I still have another year and a half of school left before I have to worry about college. I don’t think she understands. This could mean the difference between getting into Penn State or community college. I wonder if Mr. Hutchins will let me have extra credit. I will have to ask him tomorrow.

Dear Diary,
Sorry, it’s been a while since I have written in you! I have been working extra hard to bring my math grade back up, AND I had to prepare for a debate in debate club, AND me, Skye and Corine have been shopping for homecoming dresses. Logan said he would be wearing a blue tie (he looks awesome in blue) and Jake and Alan are wearing red and green ties. We have been looking crazily all over town for blue, red, and green dresses to match. I found one on Zulily.com but mom said she was not about to spend that kind of money on a dress this close to homecoming with no way to return it if it doesn’t fit. I think Skye is going to order hers from Amazon since her dad has Amazon Prime. Maybe all three of us can get the same dress but in different colors…

Dear Diary,
I can’t believe this is happening to me.So, yesterday I was getting ready for homecoming. Skye and Corine were here getting ready, too. My hair is all done, my makeup on point. We were going to meet the guys at school. We get to school and I text him that I am there. He comes out the door before I can even make it in and says we have to talk. He pulls me aside and I don’t even remember exactly what he said except that he was breaking up with me. He broke up with me to be with Paige MacAddams. PAIGE FREAKING MACADDAMS! The next thing I know Skye is pulling me into the girls bathroom, I couldn’t breath, Corine was there, Lesley was there, they were all telling me to calm down. How could I calm down?! HE BROKE UP WITH ME AT HOMECOMING! Not before! Not after! IN FRONT OF THE ENTIRE FREAKING SCHOOL!
Skye said I freaked out and started throwing things. She says when I saw Paige I lost it and tried to rip her hair out. I really don’t remember. I remember Mrs. Hidalgo pulling me into her office and hugging me. She called my mom and I went home. I can’t seem to stop crying now. I hope they both die in a horrible crash. Skye says time heals all wounds. I don’t think it will this time.

Dear Diary,
Wow. I can’t believe it has been a year since I last wrote in here. After re-reading my last entry, I feel like I need to add a positive note. Logan and Paige broke up. They deserved each other. He actually had the nerve to ask me back out. HA! Whatever. I am now dating Zach Rodriguez. He is a new kid at school and so sweet. He likes baseball. I have also gotten word that I won a debate scholarship to Penn State. It won’t pay my way, but it will pay for half. I still have time to work on more scholarships and my teachers feel confident I can get more. I think I am going to go for their law program.
