This is chapter one of my fanfiction, Toxic Valentine, I know the chapter is a little weird and poorly written... but I wasn't quite sure how their meeting should be, hope 당신 guys like it though! =D
This is NOT a story for those who are against mature matters such as mentions of sex, abuse, swearing, etc.
Stephanie's POV (Point of View)
I dive into the water; my red hair flips upwards, and eventually returns 의해 my side, drenched in water.
“Nice dive Steph!” Bridgette calls to me.
I smile and looked up at her and Geoff, the two were cuddling on a towel on the ground, it was a coincidence I even saw Bridgette here, I was coming only to practice my swimming, in order to teach swimming lessons, 당신 have to be a good swimmer.
“Did Duncan text 당신 back?” Bridgette asks.
“Yeah, he’s planning on coming,” Geoff replies.
“Dunno, maybe. Dude’s got his own plans...”
I chuckle and get out of the pool; I plan on doing another few dives.
I reach the 상단, 맨 위로 of the diving board when I see him walk in... he looks directly at me, not saying a word to his friends.
I glance back at him and stare at him for a while. I shake my head when I realize I’ve been staring too long. I jump off the board and into the cold pit of water.
I raise my head out, my hair covers my eyes; I can see Duncan whispering something to Geoff that I can’t quite make out. I swim toward them and get out of the water.
“Hello gorgeous,” Duncan stares at me, I feel like I’m a trophy... his eyes scan me, from my face, to my feet.
“Uh... dude...” Geoff begins.
I laugh at Duncan, “Your flirtatious persona will get 당신 nowhere with me.”
He raises an eyebrow, “You’re familiar with my work?”
“Please,” I pause and look at him, “Have 당신 forgotten that your flirting was recorded? You’re a celebrity; it’s not that hard to know who 당신 are.”
He looks impressed; he nods his head at me.
I notice Bridgette and Geoff looking at us, I don’t care... but does Duncan?
“Besides,” I pause again. “Your pranks; are genius!”
Duncan looks stunned, “You’re also a 팬 of my pranks? I like it...” He pauses, edging slightly closer. “Duncan,” He holds out a hand.
“Stephanie. Steph for short,” I shake his hand and look at him.
Duncan looks away for a brief moment, “So, you’re a swimmer?”
“I teach swimming lessons. It’s a crap job, but the pay is decent.”
I notice how Geoff and Bridgette are staring at us, I send Bridgette a look. “Uh... Geoff... I’m going to grab a snack from the vending machine, 당신 coming?” She asks her boyfriend.
Geoff nods and walks away with Bridgette.
Duncan rolls his eyes, “They’re probably gonna make-out,”
I chuckle, “Probably. Ugh, I hate clingy couples.”
Duncan nods, “Same,”
I smile at him. “Wanna swim?” I question.
Duncan looks at me, “I didn’t come here to swim, I came here to find a hot babe... and I think I found her.”
I roll my eyes, “I thought I said the flirty crap won’t work on me,”
“It’s worked with every other girl I’ve been with,” Duncan responds without hesitation. “I was just waiting for Romeo and Juliet to leave,”
“You’re hot when you’re angry.”
“Wow...” I pause. “Seriously, I do not like flirty guys.”
“Really? Cause up until Bridge and Geoff left, 당신 seemed kinda into me.”
I pause and turn around to look at him, “Until 당신 turned into the womanizing jackass that I remembered 당신 are...”
“Jackass?” He raises an eyebrow. “That’s offensive.”
I begin to walk away from him.
“I’m not going to stop 당신 know, 당신 watched Total Drama, 당신 saw my flirting with Courtney... you’ll want me eventually.”
“Aren’t 당신 in a relationship?” I ask demandingly, flirty guys annoy the hell out of me... especially Duncan. I’ve never met him, but due to the way he acted during Total Drama, he wasn’t someone I wanted to be 프렌즈 with.
Duncan looks away, “Uh... no... we broke up a few weeks ago...”
“Oh...” I pause. I look down at the ground and scratch my head. “I’m sorry for snapping then...”
Duncan looks at me, “Well, maybe 당신 can make it up to me.”
“Ugh... I already don’t like the sound of this,”
Duncan edges closer, “Allow me to take 당신 out, if 당신 can go out with me and still manage to tell me 당신 didn’t have a good time, I’ll drop it.”
“And what happens if I enjoy my time with you?” I ask. “This won’t happen, 의해 the way, guys like 당신 piss me off too easily.”
“Playing hard to get already?” Duncan smirks at me.
“Just answer the damn question,” I hiss I tend to get angry pretty easily, especially when it comes to guys. Guys are just too damn annoying... well... most guys.
“If 당신 enjoy your time, I get to keep pestering you.” Duncan answers, a smug grin on his face.
I really should tell him, I know I should... but something, something in my gut is telling me not to... I really should say no, I know that would be what a smart person would do... but I’m not smart.
“Fine,” I agree.
Duncan does a double-take, “Wait... what?”
“I’ll go out with you.” I reluctantly say.
Duncan smirks, “I’ll pick 당신 up tonight, at... 6?”
I look at him, my eyes digging deep into his; I take a step closer to him. “Can’t wait,” I say sarcastically while turning and walking away.
