Alright guys so time for a little bit of more explanation of my relationship with Mia. That last one was just of how we finally talked to each other and now in this one good old best friend Saki hears the story of what she missed out on after practice.
2 years ago
(DS’s PC chatting with Saki online)
S4K1: lol she walked with you home? So how did that feel having miss popular walking with you?
Dee-Es: eh it was kinda awkward. She tried acting like she didn’t know we lived right next door to each other. For Miss Popular she’s a shy person.
S4K1: Shy huh? Well I don’t blame her to be like that around guys. All her boyfriends were all A$$3$ to her. So I’m guessing that’s why she was shy.
5 Minutes later:
Dee-Es has gone idle
I was just about to go back to the computer before Saki would notice I was gone, but I guess she got impatient and just came over.
"Let me guess you were working on your little romance anime again and forgot you were online huh?" Saki spoke out as she let herself in through the front door.
Yeah guys Saki has been my best friend forever that my mom gave her a key to the house, but don’t think that way she has a girlfriend even though nobody knows about it except for me and now you guys.
I couldn’t really lie to my own best friend and she was right I was working on one of my failure anime stories about some guy named D-Jae and his adventures through gaming and trying to find a girlfriend. There I go again going off topic. “Yeah I was sorry, but i was just heading to the convenient store for some ice-cream you should come with. I’ll tell you the rest of the story.”
Saki knew she couldn’t resist ice-cream and love stories about her own best friend. So she went along.
We were heading out the door until something really awkward happened. We saw Mia taking out the trash and was just staring at us like she just saw a ghost.
I had to break the silence because awkward moments are awkward. “Hey Mia we’re heading out to get some ice-cream wanna come with?”
"AWWWW ISN’T THAT CUTE LITTLE DS OVER HERE IS ASKING A GIRL TO GET SOME ICE-CREAM!" Saki couldn’t help, but burst out laughing. "Seriously though Mia come with us after all we’re all on the same team. It would be good BONDING time."
Yup that’s Saki for you making everything awkward….I guess she get’s that from her mom. I’m used to it though. I wouldn’t really care if Mia came with us or not. “You can come along if you like, but I don’t want you to get bored because all we talk about is video games and anime.”
"If you don’t mind…I could go for some ice-cream." Mia said with a shy awkward voice.
I was pretty surprised she agreed to go, but hey the more the merrier so its alright. “Oh so Mia this is my best friend Saki she’s on the team also.”
"Wassup Mia! I heard you and DS walked home together so you wassup with that?" Saki questioned Mia like a cop in an interrogation room.
Mia started to panic. She wasn’t used to being asked questions like that. “Oh sorry I didn’t know you guys were like that…”
Did she just say what I think she just said???? Man that was too funny. “NO NO NO NO WAY ME AND SAKI HAHAHA WE’RE LIKE SIBLINGS….and besides I’m sure she would go for you more than going for me..” Of course I whispered the last part.
"Yeah no way me and DS could go out hahaha I’m already taken anyways, but anyways do you have a liking to good ol’ DS over here? I mean I don’t blame you he’s probably the nicest guy around for a nerd." Saki began bragging about her own best friend to get him some brownie points.
I had to get Saki to stop talking about me like that to Mia or else she would get the wrong idea. “Hey look we’re here what kind of ice-cream did you want?” Hopefully thinking of flavors would keep them distracted. I personally went for my all time favorite Mint Chocolate Chip.
"Oh I’ll get a Mint Chocolate Chip flavored ice-cream that one is my favorite" Mia answered with a big smile.
Saki couldn’t help but giggle after hearing that. “French Vanilla for me and wow Mia you and DS have the same favorite flavor.”
This was getting worst and worst I had to keep distracting them with something else because it seems like Saki has gone to her nonstop mode for matchmaking. “Here I’ll pay for it. Let’s head back before Mia’s parents get worried.”
We finally start walking back, but then Saki decided to have some private chat time with Mia on the way back and I never found out what they were talking about. “Well we’re back. That was pretty fast.”
Saki gave Mia a hug and me a jab to the arm and said her good byes as she had to head back home. “Well see you guys at school I’m way tired so I’m heading home. Hey DS get back online so we can chat again.”
Mia waved good bye to Saki and I just nodded my head. “Well I guess I should head inside as well. Enjoy the ice-cream.” It was really the only thing I could say at that time.
"Hey DS…can I get your screen name? We could chat online sometime." Mia said while looking down at her ice-cream.
Well that was unexpected of her to say, but I didn’t really over think it. “Yeah sure its D E E - E S, I’m always online so if you wanna talk just message me.” As we finished the trade of screen names Mia finally went into her house.
There we go that whole incident started a somewhat fun start of a friendship with Mia. Of course I never found out what those two were talking about that day. Either way I’m sure it wasn’t bad.
Thanks to the whole switching screen names I found out that Mia was actually as much of a nerd as I was. Watching anime and video games were her thing as well, but she couldn’t really tell her group of friends because she was embarrassed. So I made her agree to hide our friendship from the rest of the school so no rumors would start.
Maybe keeping that a secret was the reason all this confusion started…ugh I guess I’ll end it here. Thinking of her and the past is making me miss her even more.
