* Friday night *
"HEY JOSH! COME HERE A SECOND WILL YA!" Justin yelled from his bedroom.
Josh walked in. His eyes wide as he looked at Justin. He was wearing his khakis pants along with a blue and white striped shirt. Soon, Justin's friends came into the room.
"Hey Josh, ready to go?" Robert asked. They all stopped laughing and looked at Justin.
"Dang J, we ain't going to a damn prom." Eric laughed, as the others joined.
Justin rolled his eyes, as he sprayed some of his Curve cologne. He looked over at his friends and sighed. "Do I look all right?" He asked.
They gave him a weird look. "You look fine to me." Josh said, as the others nodded.
"Are you sure.... I mean, I don't wanna look all raggy and shit.... I need to make a good impression on her."
The guys looked at Justin. A surprised look plastered on their young faces. "Dude, what is wrong with you?" Trace asked. Justin looked at him and sat on the bed, covering his face with his hands. "Yo J, you feeling ok?"
Justin sighed, his hands over his face. "I don't know." He muttered.
"I've never seen you like this." Josh said, still looking at him. "Usually you wouldn't care how you look when you meet a girl, why should it be any different with this one."
Justin cupped his hands over his mouth. "I don't know guys... She's just different, from every other girl I've met."
They looked at him confused. "Ever since you saw her walk into History class, you've been acting weird. It's very unlike you."
Justin stood up. "I don't know guys... I feel attracted to her in a way that I would have never felt with anyone else." He looked over at them. "Well, I gotta go, I don't wanna be late." He grabbed his car keys and walked out of his room, leaving his friends confused.
Justin pulled up on Yana's driveway and turned off the engine. He closed the door and walked quietly to the front door. He sighed heavily as he rang the doorbell. "Get a hold of yourself Timberlake, it's just a girl. She's no different from the other ones." He thought to himself. He turned as the door opened slowly. Justin felt his knees go weak when his eyes set on her. Her brown highlighted hair was up in a bun, curls coming out on the sides. Her brown eyes were shining like the stars. Her lips were rosy and full. Her outfit was amazing. A short green shirt, a long green shirt with a green flower on the corner, and black high heels. "No, she's different all right." He thought to himself. "Wow! Yo... You look amazing." He said, his eyes never leaving her.
She smiled sweetly. "Thank you. So do you." She said. She had to admit he looked very gorgeous in his khakis pants and his striped shirt. She closed the door and looped her arm with his, as they walked to his gray BMW Roadster. Justin walked to the passenger side and opened the door. She smiled as she got in. Justin stood there, as a thought came to him. " What am I doing? I never open a door for a girl." He shook the thought from his head and closed the door walking to the driver's side. He got in, turned on the engine, and sped out of the driveway.
After 30 minutes, Justin pulled up at a fancy Italian and French restaurant. He stepped out of the car and walked over to the passenger's side. He opened the door, extending his hand. Yana smiled, as she placed her hand in his. "Thank you." She said. Justin smiled, as he closed the door. He let go of her hand and placed it gently on her back. They walked inside the restaurant and were quickly seated. Yana looked around the restaurant. "It's so beautiful." She said, looking at all the surroundings.
Justin smiled. His eyes looking intensively at her. "Just like you." He said, shyly.
Yana looked over at Justin. "Thank you." She replied sweetly.
"Here you go." The waitress said, placing their plates in front of them. "Enjoy." She said and walked away.
"So, Yana.. Why don't you tell me a little bit about yourself?" Justin said, as he started eating his pasta.
"Well, let's see... My full name is Yana Nicole Lynn... I'm 17, going on 18 next month... My friends at my other high school say that I'm happy go lucky girl, I love to have fun, I love spending time with my family and friends, I'm outgoing, and I love meeting new people."
Justin laughed. "Wow!" He said, as they both laughed. The night went by smoothly, as they talked, getting to know each other better as the hours passed.
"Well, I had a great time." Yana said, as she opened her front door.
"Me too." Justin said. He leaned forward and kissed her cheek softly. "Nite."
Yana smiled. "Nite." She said and closed the door. Justin sighed as he walked back to his car. He opened the door and got in. He looked at her house, he smiled as he started the car and headed towards his house.
