I went from speachless to a whole other meaning of the word. I honestly couldn't speak, for fear that I would say something wrong and ruin everything. It wasn't just that I was excited now. I knew that's what I deserved though. I shouldn't like Landon.
"H-hey." I managed to croak, knowing right away he would worry.
"Nicole, are you alright?" I knew it. How would I ever answer this question? I was frustrated with myself, but relieved too. His voice still had the same affect. My heat raced. I was so happy. Maybe I still did feel as strong about him as I always did. At this point, Landon didn't matter. He was way out of my thoughts.
"Now." I said, and I was serious. I realized how much I loved him. Disaster avoided.
"That's good, you sounded like you had been crying a second ago." Oh, how I loved when he worried about me.
"I'm just peachy!" I said avoiding the fact that he had guessed right on. "In, fact, I sort of want a peach now. Whoa!" I said all of the sudden realizing how cold it was outside. There was snow everywhere. How come I hadn't noticed that before? Here it was, late November and I was out in a thin red sweater. I really needed to start thinking.
"Haha, are you sure you're alright? You sound like you're on something." Yeah, him. He made me happy and a little more hyper now that he was talking to me. I laughed, getting up and picking up the guitar. I started to walk back home.
"Nah. I'm just happy. I've missed you lots recently. More than usual. Although I don't know how that's possible... OH! Guess what?!" I said loudly, suddenly remembering who had called me before Nick.
"Oh! What?" I heard a voice in teh background mock me. I got excited. I guess I was on speaker phone..?
"Is that Joe?!" They all laughed. I knew the whole family was surrounding the phone.
"Yeah, leave it to Joe to sound like a girl." Kevin said in between laughter. I smiled so big I thought I was going to explode. I felt like everything was normal again. I was with my family over the phone.
"So what were going to say before you were so rudly interupted..." Denise said. I smiled again. Her voice was so sweet. Like a mother. And I had a sour feeling at the pit of my stomach. Like I could imagine my mother being like. I had to forget that for now though.
"Yeah, so I got a call from a guy that you apparently know..?"I left it open. I wanted to drag it on. I loved being on the phone with them all.
"Who is it, Nicole?" I heard Frankie pipe in.
"Yeah, come on! Tell us..." Joe exclaimed.
"Shows you how much patience Joe has. Just as much as an 8 year old." Kevin said in teh background again. It sounded like he was in one of his bug-Joe moods. I laughed.
"Well, do you guys know a man named..." I paused for effect. "Jonathan Morris?" I heard Denise give a little squeal in excitment. Joe and Kevin started to cheer for me. I guess Frankie wasn't to good with names. Nick started to talk first.
"Did he really call you? What'd he say?" They were all excited for me. I was excited for me.
"He said he saw a video of me singing at your party and really liked it. He asked me to come in sometime soon to record a demo and if he liked my sound then he would maybe see about getting me a record deal." I said matter-of factly. Joe was still cheering and I heard a loud thump and an OW. Everyone started to laugh. I laughed too. That was Joe for you.
Everyone congratulated me.
"That's amazing, babe." Nick said with sincerity. He was so amazing...
"Thank you so much. You ALL helped this happen. This has always been a dream of mine." We talked for a bit while I walked home and then everyone had to go. Nick took me off of speakerphone and talked to me for a minute longer.
"So my life's pretty boring recently..."
"I mean, I met up with a friend from last year and he's pretty cool you guys...." I felt comfertable with mentioning Landon now.
"...would get along great. We were actually baking cookies before I kinda walked out..."
"Nicole!" He said even louder through laughter at me. Then he stopped for a second. "Wait, cookies?"
"Mhm. The good kind." I knew that would intrigue him. He loved the recipe Sophie always used.
"Oh, I love those..." He trailed off. This was my que to keep talking. I thought.
"Yeah, so I went to the spot where...."
"I'll be home soon." This took me by surprise. Maybe that's what he was trying to tell me... But he wasn't supposed to be home for another two weeks. At least.
Nick's gonna be home soon...
