All names have been changed to protect identities. Except “the bitches” which is actually their formal title.
When I was in grade 9 I went out with a girl named Alice. I have to say at the start that Alice was one of the nicest girls I have ever dated and she did nothing wrong!
Alice and I had been going out for a while and wanted as much alone time as possible together. One night we went to the local multiplex for one of those “All you can see” movie nights. When we arrived, there was already a large line but, like two smitten teens, we did not mind cuddling up and waiting.
The trouble started when some girls Alice knew got in the line behind us. Most of them were happy to see her and vice versa but two of them were horrid bitches. They kept referring to an event that happened before Alice and I started dating. Alice tried to ignore them but they just kept going on about it. I thought that maybe, since these bitches showed up with some of Alice’s friends, this was obviously some weird game for them. Apparently not, because the next few comments were about “how much she loves to give head” and all the guys she had “sucked off”.
I admit that, for a split second, I was a little jealous, but after then after it passed, I realized that these two bitches were horrible and were full of BS. I just said, “WHATEVER” and put a big smooch on Alice. They both shut up after that. When we were inside the theatre and met Alice’s REAL friends, we decided which movie to see first. Then, whom do I see but my wacko ex girlfriend Tia and her holier-than-thou art school friend. After making the most awkward intros of my life, Alice and I begin to talk with her friends again. Tia didn’t get the hint and just stood there staring, while her friend whispered to her every 5 seconds. They were obviously not getting a clue so our group migrated toward the arcade. I could still see Tia looking at us while her friend continued to whisper into her ear.
Did I mention that the theatre locked their doors to prevent kids from sneaking out to have sex? So we were locked in all night with these freaks. Fortunately, the rest of the night passed without incident aside from some random girl with cold sores taking a sip of my coke (I let her finish it). However, it wasn’t the alone time Alice and I had hoped for, with her friends tagging along. All the awkwardness made it a somewhat surreal evening.
Admittedly, it’s a bit tame for MVWD but I’ve never had a date where both parties felt equally awkward.
