CRUSH CRISIS!!!!

Submitted for Contest #63 in response to: Write about two characters going apple picking.... view prompt

Funny Teens & Young Adult

DISCLAIMER: True story!! Yes, this actually happened this week and the diary entries are true too. Im the character "Stacy Miller" in this Any Advice? Its a love triangle...



"He likes you!" You scream at your friend while plucking an apple.Β 

"Stacy Miller, Austin doesn't like me! " Screams your friend, Sarah at your face throwing one in her basket.


He LIKES you!!" you scream louder.

"I don't care if he does. YOU have a crush on him!!" Said Sarah.Β 

"Oh-oh well…. Um… O- you begin with a sentence and then you scoff.

"Even GOOGLE MAPS couldn't know or find that a boy like Austin likes ME!" You say it to your bff's face.


"Aww that's so cute!!! You don't even have a reply!!"

"Um-well um…. Austin looks at you all the time! That's gotta count for somethingΒ doesn't it?" You say.

"Does he? Nice!" Sarah gives you a sheepish grin.Β 

You grin back.Β 


"Sarah, I got points. My crush maybe likes you. See….

  1. During football he gives up when you try to take the ball from him.
  2. He looks at you.
  3. He told those other boys to shut up when they shouted insults at you.
  4. He likes you."

"He likes you Sarah." You reply glumly.


"What? Dude! He gives up the ball when you try to steal too! Well maybe he looks at me because I'm a goalkeeper and rarely a front player. He told those boys to shut up because he was the only one who heard their insults. Kay?" Says your friend with a worried look on her face.


"I know you are just saying this to comfort me and all but- well-. Ugh. Who DOES this dude like?" You scream flinging your hands in the air.

"Owwww ouch!! Stupid tree!!" You say as your hand collides with a sharp tree branch.


"Hahaha lol!!!!!!" Your close friend bursts into heart-filling laughter.Β 


"Dude!" You say as sheΒ starts wheezing with laughter.

"My hand is tireddddddd!!!" Sarah wailed.

"Mine toooooo!!!!" You reply.


"Lol we better get home before both of our moms call the police." You say.

"Lol Yeah."



As you and Sarah walk into the sunset leaving the Apple Orchard laughing and chuckling about annoying school teachers and that jerk who picks on both of you.




Next day…



13 October 2020-Β 

Hiya! My mom got you for me. I'm Stacy Miller, a teen girl who has an impeccably annoying brother, cruddy parents and a cute bestie. My life is depressing and BORING! I'm in 6th grade last term. The only thing that made my lifeΒ more interesting for the last 2 days was….. Austin. Austin is my crush. Me and my bestie play football in the complex. He plays too. He is an awesome front player, and MAN has he got moves! He cracks really funny jokes too! Lol. He is white, a little dark and has ruffled cute hair. He's in 6th Grade too! But… well… He stares at my best friend, Sarah. Sarah told me that she doesn't like him and doesn't care if he likes her. That's a little harsh, but who am I to say? And he passes the ball to her all the time. So…. Yeah. My life motto is : life's shit. Get over it. Lol.






14th October 2020-

S-Sarah likes Austin. She told me yesterday. I feel weird, angry and… well, sad. It's weird. Ya know? Like you like your crush but your crush likes your bestie, and your bestie secretly likes him back. I-i dunno. It's weird. I'll give up my crush. I'll let Sarah have him. I'm like the irritating point on a beautifully constructed ray. Wow, Geometry class must be getting to me, lol. I'll get him out of my mind… somehow.





15th October 2020-

Ugh. I was in the opposite team of Austin this time, but I snatched the ball from him, and our legs collided! He was like :Β 

"Hey, you got hurt?"

I didn't hear it the first time, so yeah. He asked again.

"Hey, you got hurt?"

"Nah"

Then he ran off after the ball. Nice right? No… he talked to Sarah a lot today. He and Sarah also collided feet. His conversation with Sarah went like :

"Hey, you got hurt?

"Um no."

"Oh ok. Sorry."

"It's okay!"


She seemed pretty cheery after that. :(Β 





16th October 2020-

I told Sarah that she can have him. She said, no. I'll move out.Β 


Conversation…


"Sarah, Austin likes you…. You should be with him. I’ll give up. Okay? Huh? He likes you and you like him back. I'm interfering." You say with guilt in your voice.


"No. I'll move out and Austin is the same age. You are in 6th. So is he. And I'm in 5th.Β Okay?"

"No, no I can't ask you to do that. It's not fair. I'm meddling. You are with him." You reply.

"No Stacy, wait. How about we both hate him. Huh? How's that?

"Okay!" You said this without thinking… You don't know what to do. You feel a sense of impossible hanging in this sentence.

"Bye!"

"Bye!"


Β (Same entry)

Life is shit for me. I told my mom about it. I expected her to jump and say "Squeee your first crush!!" Yeah. I know. I'm crazy. Who keeps their mom updates on their personal life? Oh wait, I don't even have one. Why? Because I have a snobby sister looking over my shoulder right now to see what I'm writing. Yes, I'm writing about you! Ivy!! (My sister). And to top it off its a Friday AND I have school tommorow. Why? Because we had a 1 hour power cut during schoolΒ on Tuesday.Β So, they are going to take the WHOLE school AGAIN. One SATURDAY! ARGHHHHH To top it off…


Austin fell on me slightly today while playing football. Sarah saw him. I was pretty happy! But then after the match Sarah told me that his expression was "gross" when he accidentally fell on me. Is she lying or is it true.. wanna know how I feel now. There is a song which describes my life PERFECTLY. Its "The Queen Of Mean".Β 



WHO THE HELL DOES THIS DUDE LIKE?!?!!!Β Β 

ARGHHHHH!!!

awww this was absolutely cute. Love triangle, hmmmm interesting 😏😏 ehehe I must say you shouldn't use too much exclamation marks. You're showing excitement, so you write some to show the excitement instead of putting too many exclamation marks. But, this was really cute. And yes, the question is valid, WHO DOES AUSTIN LIKE??! IF HE DOESN'T LIKE YOU,THROW SOME SARCASTIC COMMENTS HIS WAY AND MOCK HIM ALL THE TIMEEEEE that's what I'd do lmaoo...

Aw thanks!! Lolllll yeah!! I'm so tempted to just go and be like : Dude, who the HECK do you freakin like??!!

Do you mind if I be absolutely honest? (if you do mind, i'll just remove the comment) There are grammar mistakes and as much as I wanted to enjoy the story, they ruined it for me. I really think that this is a funny and cool story idea, and could be made even better with just a bit of editing. No offense meant, but I think you should check out Reedsy's tutorial/blog post about the 2nd POV. You're getting better at it but I think you should sharpen your skills a bit and become even better than before! None of this was meant to offend you. ...

No, no thanks for the advice!! I'll fix those mistakes, and yeah will check that course out!! Thanks Priyamveda!!

Thanks! Lol the whole story is true.... happened to me. Its still happening, I'm Stacy in the story...

Reply

D'you need any love advice? I'm obviously not the best person to ask but here anyway- Love interests are very confusing. They are frustrating but endearing, so whenever I feel like I caught feelings, I just write down reasons why I might like them. It's important to figure out WHY you like them, because then you can narrow down whether it's too much of an obsession or not. Having a crush is healthy, as long as you don't take it to extremes. (i am cringe)

Yeah I guess... wow I should do that!!

I love this! The love triangle sort of reminds me of the keeper of the lost cities love triangle (or is that a square? Or pentagon? It might even be a hexagon by now...) although this has way more drama than that. It was funny to read!

Reply

XDDDD yas, btw, this story is true.... just so u know.... Omg, yesss I think its a square, tho I lreally wanna sucker-punch Lady Gisela! P.s fun fact about me: I have sucker- punched someone before. In real life ;)

Super relatable! I have a diary (shamefully) and I write songs that relate to my experiences at the time, so I felt that reference in the third(?) paragraph. I did the same thing with stepping down but that's because my best friend's friend liked my crush. It was really hard for me, but now I like him again and I don't want to. My best friend and I sort of drifted apart when corona happened, and now we don't really talk at all. Anyway, enough of that, great job Sia! :D Off to read #2!

Yess I have a diary too! Yess I kinda like him again? I'll tell ya In a while, thanks!

Ahhhh this sounds so complicated! I can't say I can relate exactly but I'll tell you this: read the Patchouli Boy (one of my stories) because that one is semi based on similar experiences and maybe it could help you out? I don't know, it's not the exact same thing but it's more or less like what happened to me. :( If I was you or your friend, I'd go to McDonald's, flirt like mad with the drive through boys, get extra French fries, go to this Austin kid'd soccer game and dump the whole box on his head. See how you like him when he's blinking...

Remember, girls, sugar in the tank of a car ruins everything AND is not covered by insurance or traceable like slashing tires is. :) Also if you have to slash tires, remember to do the first three with one knife because most insurances only cover three and then do the other one with a different knife so it looks like the car's owner did it on their own to get moneeeeeey. *rhonny does not endorse these behaviors, just saying*

Oh wow... queen of mean. Is that actually descendants? (I really hope so) I actually loved the colloquialisms you used; I know you are young, but you actually write like one. Whenever anyone tells you that it's not a good idea to write like a teen, ignore them; if you're writing young adult stuff, that's the thing that set's you apart from adults writing young adult experiences. FINALLy I've found another person who wrote their own story! I've only seen one other person, and I love how different they all are. I know it probably sucks right n...
