Chapter 5.6


“Aack, Lex!” my other best friend, Serenity Grzenda, squealed. “How are you not freaking out that Cory might break something?”

My friends and I were hanging out with Cory’s friends. They were like these professional skateboarders. Or at least that’s what it looked like to us. They all were a cross between Simmy Hawk and that flying tomato guy from the olympics.

“Yeah,” Gabby chimed in. “I’m biting my nails watching this. I can’t believe they all haven’t broken at least seventeen bones.”


Cory jumped up on top of a rail in front of us. He teetered so much, he looked like he was going to face plant at any moment.


I couldn’t help it. My maternal instincts took over and I yelled, “Do you have a death wish, Cory? I would like to have a boyfriend for more than like two weeks.”

In a non-chalant way, Cory glanced at me as he sailed over the pipe and said, “Don’t worry, Lexie. I’m good.”


At that moment, his friends totally missed the ramp and did a nose dive into the concrete.


We all groaned in unison, but then Cory’s friend, Wyatt, waved his hand at us and acted like he “meant” to use the cement as his own personal kleenex.



Just then, Cory came over and asked, “Want to skate with me, Lexie? You brought your board. Right?”


I arched an eyebrow. “So, are you done trying to dance with death? Looks like Wyatt got a nosebleed. Blood looks good on him, but I don’t think it’s your color.”

He laughed. “Aww…you’re cute when you worry about me.”


Lifting the side of my mouth, I said, “Who says I’m worried? I just don’t want to have to take your ass to the hospital.” When his face fell, I grinned to let him know I was kidding. He often mistook what I thought was witty sarcasm for reality.


Throwing me a sheepish grin, he pulled out his phone. “I totally don’t do anything really dangerous. See, look at these maniacs. I could only wish I was this good.”


My eyes popped. I realized there was a whole world out there full of crazier idiots than my boyfriend. Who knew?

But then he started giving me that look. You know, the one that pureed me into a puddle of Lexie goo. I could stare into his baby browns all night.


Eyebrows raised, he said, “Come on, Lexie. Let’s go.”


He grabbed my hand and we skated, leaving my friends. All my anxieties about him getting perpetual strawberries all over his face, arms…well…body, flew away with the Brindleton Bay breeze. A warm hand can do that, you know.


I noticed Wyatt screaming at the moon like a frustrated werewolf. Poor guy. His nose had grown three sizes since his last wipeout.


Something I noticed as we zipped around the park: that cheesy pose from The Titanic was way less goofy when doing it with your boyfriend (on a shared skateboard). And without the impending (SPOILER ALERT, FOLKS) death as a melodramatic backdrop.


I couldn’t get this out of my mind–Me, Lexie Day, had a boyfriend! I wanted to shout it on top of all the lighthouses. Well, maybe just rub it in that bitch-for-brains diva, Emery Straud’s, face. Girl would not stop giving me crap. She’d been making fun of me since I was eight years old. But now, I didn’t care about her bullying. I had Cory who thought I was cool. Well…maybe at least semi-cool. Okay, fine. Awkward but lovable.

We took a break and rested in the middle of the park. I couldn’t stop grinning. My life was a goofy, bubblegum, teen romance novel and I loved it!



“Are you sure you don’t want to sit on the bench? I can make my friends leave,” Cory said. He was so sweet!!!

Patting his knee, I shook my head. “I love it right here. We can watch the moon rise. The benches are too close to the ramps to see it.”


Wrapping his arm around me, he said, “I didn’t know you were a romantic. I like it.”

Leaning into him, I threatened, “Tell anyone and I’ll force you to go to my art club tomorrow.” Cory hated art. He loved music, but made fun of my incessant anime doodling.


He kissed my ear then whispered, “I’ll go with you to art club tomorrow even though your secret is safe.”

Aww…did I somehow acquire a rabbit’s foot, four leaf clover, and horseshoe all at once or something? How did I get this lucky?

The moon was covered by clouds, but it didn’t matter. We cuddled in that romantic setting anyway.























I’m in full move lunacy! That means I won’t have another update until next Monday.

  1. “My life was a goofy, bubblegum, teen romance novel and I loved it!” FAMOUS LAST WORDS.

    This was far too cute and sweet. I sense impending doom 😛

  2. LOL, I think you’ve scarred everyone for life with all the murders and chaos last-gen–everyone’s expecting Cory to die horribly, even though I see the perfection as Lexie being a teenager who exaggerates and is super in love for the first time. (Though don’t all relationships seem perfect when we’re in the throes of early love?)

    Love Lexie’s combination of geekiness and sassiness. Of course she does anime doodles in art class.

    Generally, first/high school relationships don’t work out in the long run, but that’s perfectly fine. Like Lexie, I’ll enjoy the cuteness while it lasts.

  3. Awww. Lexie…totally in love. I have lots of ideas about what might happen, but right now this is too cute to think about how this might get all messed up. You said it, what could possibly go wrong. 🙄 But eating it up so far! ❤️

    Who would ever dream Lexie is the daughter of THE August Day, the sexiest FBI agent to ever live, that both men and women drooled over? Talk about complete opposites! 😂

    1. So true…think about how August was as a teen even. 😱 But I think Daddy August wouldn’t have it any other way. 🤣 He loves his inexperienced, romantic, geeky girl.

      Yeah…things could happen to rip these two apart, but let’s enjoy these sweet moments. Ha! I am! 😍

  4. Eee, I loved the bubblegum teen romance! I’m just going to live in this Lexie buble moment and not think about what could (and probably will) go wrong. NOPE.
    Sunshine and fucking rainbows up in here ok.
    I love the whole thing! Glasses clinking, skateboard Titanic-ing, cuddles in the moonlight, anime art class going, and nice kisses!
    Teenage me is collapsing with joy on to her bed, clutching a plushie and listening to a Backstreet Boys love song ❤️

    1. Backstreet Boys love song. Bahahaaaa! It is a teen dream, huh? ❤
