Round 2 - Spring 2025Last update/ Next update
Amanda Carlson is 28
she had met when she was out on a walk suggested to her by Tessa. But Tessa had forbade Amanda from seeing him. Something about he and her sister being involved. But if they were really involved, would he have asked her out for coffee? She didn't know and was slowy not caring anymore. Her and Terrance had had many phone conversations and she was hoping that he would finally ask her out for that coffee. Tess was so wrapped up in Derick and that damn club that she didn't even hang with Amanda anymore. So she would have to figure this out on her own......
Well maybe she was imagining that he seemed preoccupied. Because now she was the center of his attention. And she wasn't sure that she really liked that. It was a bit nerve racking. What if he tried to kiss her? Oh she had been kissed before. Twice. And she was pretty sure she wasn't very good at it.
He was hung up on some flaky girl named Ariel and they wanted to help get his mind off of her. But of course it didn't work. And he felt that Amanda was too nice to just lead her on. It was sadly the story of her life. She bet this Ariel woman was gorgeous. Was probably tons of fun. Story of her life........
"Um, yea, well we had been talking on the phone for so long you know, seemed silly not to just come by and see how you were doing," he said.
"Oh, we're not going to go out for coffee?"
"Yea, about that..........Look, Amanda, you're a great woman, don't get me wrong. And this is probably my fault. That invitation for coffee was just kinda of something you say. Just conversation I suppose. The thing is, I'm kinda in love with someone and I really want to make a go of that. I love having you as my friend which is why I came over to tell you this in person.......I didn't want you to think I want to stop talking to you. I just want to make the lines clear. Don't want any misunderstandings," he said.
"Well I guess I should have known this right? I mean you've never tried to come over here in all the months that we've been having those phone conversations. Never asked me out. It's fine Terrance, I understand. I hope it works out."
"Thanks Mandy, you're the greatest! Now that we've straightened things out, we could still go get that coffee."
"No thanks, I have an early morning," she said.
*My heart bleeds for Amanda! Every guy she was interested in was otherwise spoken for. Oh, it's such a shame. I really hope to find someone for her. She's just too cute not to procreate! May have to send her on a little vacation and let her bring home one of the vacation townies!
