((Brendan Harte continued from Time To Open Up))

Brendan was out for a jog in Sumac Park. He felt that it was the best place for him to do that. The weather wasn't that hot and it was quite a warm day. It was just a same that he had to do this on his own as his father was terribly busy with work again. He knew that he shouldn't like it bother him. But it did. He wanted to tell him about how well he was going in Art class. And also with his short stories that he knew that he had to confess to someone else other than Bernadette.

He let as a small breath as he continuing to jog over the path. Then he was starting to disappear into his thoughts for some ideas of his currently unfinished story. He was stuck in the middle of it and he couldn't decide what to do with the main villain. Maybe he just had writer's block or something. He wasn't too sure.

Deane swooped down to the ground as light as a feather. The terrified girl was too startled to scream as he bared his bloody fangs. She was too afraid to move from where she was standing in the garden as he glided close to her. He let out a hiss as he grabbed her forcefully around her waist. He pushed a strand of her long, glossy blonde hair away from her neck. Then the vampire could see one of her veins throbbing. He licked his lips hungrily as he couldn't wait to taste her pure blood. He slowly his lips closer to her neck. He was ready to bite down....

Brendan smiled to himself. That didn't sound that bad. It was a little cheesy but he could try to change it later. He just needed a little more practice. Then he decided that he was going to finally show his story to his grandparents and his father. He couldn't keep hiding it forever.

He nodded to himself happily as he moved forward more. This was turning out to be a great day for him. He was so lost in his thoughts that he wouldn't even realized if he crashed into someone in front of him.

Brendan didn't even notice the girl in front of him at first. He only had a second to realize that she was there. But it was too late to stop as he bumped right into her. He was knocked over by the impact and he fell forwards onto the ground. He landed pretty awkwardly onto his stomach. His chin bounced against the ground and he was dazed from the blow. What just happened? Where did that girl come from?

"Oooww...."

He blinked for a few moments. He was still a little stunned by what happened. He turned his head slightly and he was so startled that he had knocked the girl to the ground as well. Oh.... He should have not let himself get distracted by his thoughts. He could have seriously hurt her. He needed to check on her. And well.... Wait, he knew this girl. Alba...?

"Hey! Are you alright, Alba? I'm so sorry from what happened there! I-I'm so sorry. I should have been paying attention! I was so lost in my thoughts that I didn't even realize that you were on the path! Are you hurt at all?"

He had got onto his knees which were stringing badly and he crawled over to Alba's side. He honestly didn't care if he got injured in the process. Alba was the only person on his mind at that moment. He leaned in closely to her face. He hoped that she didn't hit her head or anything. He didn't want to be responsible for a head injury.

"U-Um, is your head okay? I'm really sorry, Alba! I'm such a klutz...."

Brendan hadn't suspected that she would shout at him so it had caught him off guard for a few seconds. He never did like it when people would yell. It normally made him feel like he did something wrong. But he suddenly felt relieved when Alba was just telling him that she was alright.

"That's such a relief that you are okay. I don't think I would be able to uh... forgive myself if I had accidentally hurt you." He was showing her a sincere smile as he was still very close to her face. "Do you need a hand to get up?"

He had to be polite. He knew that she said that she had not been paying attention either. But he didn't want to just leave without helping her up first. Maybe he could start a conversation with her. Maybe he could buy something for her as a genuine apology.

Brendan was okay with Alba rejecting his offer to help her up. Kind of. He was a bit happy that she thanked him. He realized that he may have panicked a bit too much. He felt a little embarrassed by his behavior. But he had been really concerned about crashing into her.

He cleared his throat awkwardly and he slowly got up himself. He winced slightly as his legs were hurting. He gazed down at his knees and he saw that they were grazed and bleeding a little. He decided to ignore it. This hasn't been the first time when he had hurt himself due to his clumsiness. He glanced back at Alba and he gave her a wobbly smile. He had to calm down and try to not overreact to anything else.

Wait, Alba was getting a drink. This could be his chance to make it up to her for what just happened between them. He had some money on him anyway.

"Oh? You were getting a drink?" He said curiously. "W-What were you going to buy? And.... Um.... Would you like me to get it for you? If you don't.... Then that's.... okay, I guess...."

His voice was becoming quieter and quieter. He really did need to get his confidence up. He really didn't want to disappoint Alba for some reason. He figured that he just wanted to bond with her more and get to know her.

"S-So what are you doing here? Were you practicing?" He was eyeing her bag on Alba's shoulder.

Brendan gave her a small nod as he listened to her. So she was playing some golf. That was pretty great. Brendan hadn't played it himself but he had a slight interest in it. He liked the idea of taking his time to concentrate on hitting a golf ball with a golf club and getting it into a hole. He thought it would be nice and peaceful. Away from all of the drama that he had to deal with sometimes. Maybe he could ask Alba if he could practice with her in the future. But right now, he was focused on trying to make things right first.

"I see. I'll get that drink for you. It's no problem. I'm happy to get it for you, Alba. So how long have you been doing golf?" He was trying to get a good conversation going. So he decided to go with the topic of golf.

His eyes wandered over to the vending machine. Now that he thought about it, he was a bit thirsty. And he had forgotten to bring his water bottle with him. Was Alba really okay with getting him something? He was actually afraid to ask. But if she was offering then it would be rude of him not to accept. Right?

"Okay. Sure. Then we will be even, right?" He grinned as he started to get out his money and he started to put the coins into the vending machine. "I'm not that fussy about what to have. So I'll have the same as you. I think this is nice that we are doing something for each other. It's really.... s-sweet of you to do this for me."

Brendan listened to Alba saying that she had been doing golf for years. Just like him with doing swimming ever since he was a kid. Well, at least they were both doing something that they seemed to both enjoy. He was thankful that he loved swimming since he was a small child. He was losing his track of thought now. He could see that Alba was holding out his drink to him, waiting for him to take it. He did a switch as they give each other their drinks and he was actually feeling surprisely calm around Alba. He didn't know why though. She seemed to be a nice person, just a little loud. But he was sure that he could grow to her bright personality.

"Oh, sure. I don't mind. I could use a break from my jog for a while." He agreed with her as they headed over to the bench together and he sat down, feeling a bit happy to be resting. "....I should make sure to take care of my legs when I get home...." He laughed awkwardly and he was holding his bottle close in his lap. His knees were stringing a little. It was his fault for not seeing Alba right in front of him. He sighed a bit sadly. "....I wish I could stop being clumsy, you know.... I have the worst luck...."

Brendan blinked. And then he blinked again. What Alba had just said to him was genius! Not for real life, of course. He wouldn't want to doom America over being a big klutz at heart. He thought that it was a genius idea for a story. Then he would write about body horror. It would freak people out and they would think that it is gross and disgusting. But they would still read it! He was now inspired to use Alba's idea in the future. He would also give credit to her for it.

Brendan cleared his throat and he let out a small chuckle. "That sounds like it would be pretty cool for the virus one.... For a story or the plot of a horror sci-fi movie. You ever thought of being a writer, Alba?" He asked curiously as he opened his bottle and he took a sip. He pulled a small face. He wasn't really a fan of this drink but it had to do for now. "I'm been writing some short stories. Maybe I could show them to you some time. What do you think?"

....Wait. He just told her his secret. Wow. Maybe Alba was making him feel confident enough to open up to her.

Brendan gave a small nod and he looked a bit thoughtful. "This must sound crazy to come from me. But what if we work on a story together? Like maybe you can come up with the idea and I could write it as a story." He suggested as he thought that it would be an interesting thing to do with her.

Then he would have to invite Alba over to his home if she was up for it. He was slightly red in the face. He had never had a girl over at his home. He would always go over to his friends' houses. He wasn't going to push it as they were only starting to get to know each other.

"Y-Yes. I do want to be an author one day. I just need to get my stories out there and hope for the best." He took another sip of his drink and he shifted a little to get more comfortable. "This feels very relaxing. Talking to you."

He laughed gently and he shook his head slightly, staring up at the sky. "I think I'm glad that I bumped into you, Alba...." He glanced back at her with a kind smile. "I'm sorry. That doesn't make me sound silly. Does it...?"

Brendan was relieved when she seemed to be up for sharing ideas with him. That was neat. He would definitely invite her over to meet his family. And then he could show her what he had written so far. To see if she would like his stories or not.

"S-Sure! I'll invite you over and then we will come up with some wonderful ideas. I can show you some of my written works." He nodded and he then rested his chin onto his right hand. "Yeah, it's not that busy here today. I'm happy that we were able to have a conversation with each other."

He was silent now. What else could he talk about with her? Oh, that Sadie Hawkins dance was coming up soon and he was still hopeful that someone would have asked him. But no. He didn't really want to go alone. He didn't have the confidence to do that. He gazed at Alba again. Maybe he should talk to her about it.

"Um.... Uh.... What do you think about the dance that is coming up soon, Alba?" He asked curiously.

Brendan was a bit relieved to know that she was interested in the dance as well. Although parties weren't really his sort of thing to do. But then if he went to the dance then he could have a lot of fun with other people there. Especially if he went with someone. He was a terrible dancer though. So he would be dreading about that happening.

"I.....was wondering if you were going with anyone...." His voice was getting a bit quieter. He wasn't the type of guy who could confidently ask a girl or a guy out. "I.... I mean.... I would like to go with you...!" He blurted out loudly, feeling a bit embarrassed. "I'm sorry for yelling.... I mean, if you're not going with anyone then I...." He trailed off.

He was still fiddling with his bottle in his lap. He was sure that he was screwing this up. Besides, he had only just met Alba. Why would she want to go with him? He realized that he was being too hard on himself but he couldn't help it.

Brendan was shocked by what Alba had just did. He hadn't suspected that this would happen. He had no idea how to respond to her. He could feel himself turning more red. He was blushing and he felt a bit happy. He was glad that Alba was asking him. He wanted to grab her and hug her happily. But that might be too embarrassing for him to do. He needed to answer her.

"....Y-Yes...!"

....Did he really just say yes? He did. He was resisting the urge to pull Alba up and hug her close to him. He didn't want to get too overexcited about this. He smiled at Alba brightly. He kind of thought that this was very cute and romantic.

Brendan was staring as Alba sat down beside him. Wow. He still couldn't believe that he was going with her. It all felt so sudden. But it felt right. He liked Alba and he wanted to give it a shot with her. Oh, she wanted his phone number so that they could talk more. Or text each other. Yeah, he would like to give his phone number to her.

"Sure. Here you go." He got out his phone and he told her his phone number. He always had his phone with him in case of emergencies. "D-Dinner with you.... Wow. I can't believe this is really happening.... I am looking forward to going with you to the dance, Alba."

Brendan nodded his head in agreement. He was hopeful that it would be fun as well. Although, he was also hoping that he would not see anyone that he might have upset. It would make things very awkward. But he couldn't think about that right now. He was trying to think of how things would go at the Sadie Hawkins Dance. Although, he might be thinking too far ahead. He had never been to a dance before so he was desperate not to end up embarrassing himself there in front of Alba. ....Was this going to be like a date? He hadn't even thought about that.

Brendan was starting to get more flushed and he covered his face with his shaky hands for a few moments. Well, unless they were going as just friends. He wasn't sure if he should ask her if they were dating. As in boyfriend and girlfriend. Should he just ask her straight out? No. He'll ask her later. Then he gazed back at Alba as she was talking about non-prom and homecoming dances. He didn't really pay that much attention to those dances.

"Uh.... What sort of music do you think that they would play at the dance?" He asked, trying to keep his voice calm and not too nervous sounding. "I don't really listen to music that much. So I'm not really a professional on music genres. Ha...."

Brendan nodded. He felt a bit embarrassed as he couldn't really comment on new music. He didn't really find an interest in music that much. However now he needed to know about these things. Especially if he and Alba were going on a.... date? He was still stuck in that stage of whether or not, they were dating for real. It would be nice to have a girlfriend or a boyfriend and then he wouldn't feel lonely. He had to ask Alba. He really wanted to know if he was good enough. Well, she did ask him out. But he needed to know before he would possibly do something really stupid at the dance. Like with Jae and his painting. Oh god. Jae's painting. Brendan knew that he would never be able to live that down. He still wanted to make things up to Jae and hopefully make Jae like him. Uh..... His thoughts were thinking about the wrong person right now. He should remember that he was talking to Alba. Not Jae. Alba....

"Um.... So.... Are we going as friends to the dance?" He gulped nervously. "....Or are we going as boyfriend and.... girlfriend?"

Brendan had noticed that Alba's face was looking red before she turned away from him a little and he wanted to say something. He felt like he shouldn't have asked about the boyfriend and girlfriend part. He should have just stop at the friend part. What was he thinking? He should have thought it over before opening his mouth and saying something as embarrassing as that. Alba possibly thought that he was a weird guy for asking. He felt a bit ashamed of himself and he nervously took a sip of his drink. It felt strange how Alba was talking less now. He must have caught her off-guard. He didn't mean to do that.

Brendan felt a bit relieved when she said that they were going as friends. Yes, it made sense to him and she was right about them not going on a date. "Y-Yeah, you're right. It would be better if we go as friends. I didn't mean to ask the last question. I'm sorry if I embarrassed you." He let out a nervous chuckle and he scratched his cheek slightly. "....Although, I would like to go out with you after the dance. Yes.... I.... Uh...."

He didn't know what to say anymore. He really did like Alba and he really wanted to make things work with her. He wanted to get to know her a lot more. He wasn't this confident with a girl. Especially on asking to go on a date with her. Maybe it was that whole 'opposites attract' thing that was happening. He wasn't too sure.

"Um, I have to go soon. I really need to clean up my knees. Would.... would you like me to call you later to talk about the dance more?" His lower lip was quivering a little. He was hoping that he wouldn't regret liking Alba.
