Holding Hands and Working it Out

"PRUDENCE!!!!!!!!! WE'RE GOING TO BE LATE" Abbey yelled from downstairs up to my room.

I was in my room and putting my hair in braids and a headband over my forehead,
Yup, I am going to Hayley Madison's Halloween Party dressed as a Hippie. I don't want a sequel to the Rachel Fiasco, thankyouverymuch.

"Kay." I muttered, my heart still broken from what happened with Nathan and Rachel.
Abbey knocked on my door, "Pru? You okay in there?"
I looked in the mirror,
was I okay?
"Yeah, I just need to do my hair and I'll be right down." I lied.
Abbey saw right through me and abruptly opened the door
"PRUDENCE DAKOTA FARROW, TELL ME WHAT IS WRONG THIS INSTANT!" She demanded.

I blinked, then sighed and explained my dilemma.
"I just don't want to see Nathan and Rachel all over each other at a party on gosh-darned Halloween. You know?"
Abbey nodded "Well, sort of. You know his friend, Justin? Well, he has been trying to get me to go out with him, and I am worried about what he will do at the party." She stared down at her Taylor Swift-ish cowboy boots, flattened out her pale blue dress and sighed.
I thought about it,

should
we bail and look like cowards?

"No." I said aloud.
"No?" Abbey looked at me, confused.
"No, we are going to the party, and showing Rachel and Nathan and Justin that we won't back down." I nodded.
".......Is this the part where Demi Lovato comes out and dances on tables, like she did in Camp Rock 2?" Abbey was obviously getting more and more confused.
"NO." I huffed, then finished my hair and pulled Abbey down the stairs and towards what might have been the biggest party we will ever attend.

Abbey, Julie, Molly and I were the only girls in my family who wanted to attend and Molly and Julie decided to go as a Candy Corn Witch (Julie) and a Mermaid (Molly.)
When we walked inside, all eyes were immediately on us.
"Wow, pretty slow night, to be staring at us, eh?" Julie asked me, which caused me to erupt in giggles. The party was filled with life again as soon as my giggles died down. Julie went over to her friends, Laura, Nichole and Opal. Molly rushed over to HER friends, Maddie, and Julie and Rebecca from the blogs Julie Sparkles and Remarkable Rebecca. Which left Abbey and I to fend for ourselves. Abbey spotted a karaoke stand and poked my side, I turned my head to see Hayley, the party's hostess, sing Katy Perry's "Teenage Dream."
I turned to Abbey and asked "Should I sing?"
Abbey replied instantly "YES YES YES!"
"But what should I sing?" I asked, searching my mind for a song to sing.
"I dunno, but I think the Karaoke Machine is on shuffle, so you'll get one randomly." Abbey predicted.
"Oh okay." I said, then turned to get in line for karaoke, and guess who was in front of me but none other then RACHEL, who was still wearing her Dorothy outfit, good thing I changed costumes for the party.

"Hey, thing. I see you went with something more suitable for you." She said, then rolled her eyes.
"What do you mean, VanGAGski?" I asked.
"I mean, Hippies were freaks, and you ARE a freak. Well I guess you are what you wear." She said, then turned around.
"Rachel, be nice." An angelic voice called out behind me.
I turned to be face to face, well actually face to chin (He's taller then me) with Nathan, who was dressed up as Elvis.

Lovely.

Rachel rolled her eyes. "Whate-" She paused and realized it was Nathan "Oh HI honey!" She pushed me aside, and went to hug Nathan. Nathan hugged her, so he wasn't able to see her WINK, at Kevin Jacobson, but he WAS able to see Kevin blow a kiss at Rachel and Rachel act like she caught it.
"What's THAT about?" He asked.
"Honey, what do you mean?" She said, acting innocent.
"YOU'RE CHEATING ON ME, AREN'T YOU?" He said, getting mad.
"N-n-yeah." she said, looking down.
"Well, you can have him. We're through." Nathan said, then walked away and went to Hayley's HUGE backyard.
I followed him to make sure he didn't get in trouble.
"Nathan I'm really sorry." I said when I caught up to him when he was swinging on one of the swings on the swing set.
"I should have known." He sighed, looking down.
I sat down on the other swing next to him,
"Hey, it's okay for you not to have known. She was sneaking around behind your back." I replied.
"But I should have been more observant" He said glumly.
"Nathan, it's her fault, not yours. You did the right thing by breaking up with her." I re-assured.
He looked up at me,
"You think so?"
"Definitely." I said, smiling.
He let out a small smile and said,
"Thanks, Pru."
My name had never sounded more beautiful,
"Your welcome Nathan."
He moved one of the stray hairs out from my face.
My cheeks burned.
"You have the prettiest eyes." He said, looking deeply into my chocolate eyes.
"Thank you" I blushed.
Then we both leaned in and right as we were about to kiss.....

SPLASH.

I fell into a puddle that was underneath the swing.
Great, Prudence, Great.
"Are you okay?" He asked.
I was deep red, "Yes."
HOW COULD I HAVE BEEN SO KLUTZY?!
He smiled a little "Hey, I found a nickname for you, it's Peach, because you always turn Peach when I talk to you."
I smiled "Well, you SHOULD call me Klutz."
He shook his head "Honestly, I'm not any more graceful then you are."
He helped me up and we laughed all the way inside.

When we got inside and I got dried off, we walked into the main room with the karaoke machine to find none other then
Justin singing "We Can Work It Out" By The Beatles to the crowd, but staring at Abbey.
It was hysterical considering that I knew their history.
Abbey looked like she was trying to cover up how bright red she was turning.
"She likes him too" I said, and Nathan nodded "and he has had his eye on her for a while now"
After the song, Justin walked off stage and asked Abbey.
"Could we please work it out?"
Abbey thought about it, then nodded.

About 20 minutes later;
Justin, Abbey, Molly, Julie, Rebecca, the Other Julie, Nathan and I were all walking home singing random songs at the top of our lungs. Our Julie had just finished singing Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody" when Nathan asked "Prudence, can you wait up with me for a second?" He nodded for the rest of the group to keep walking.
"Prudence, ever since the first day I talked to you, I knew there was something special about you." He beamed, then contiued, "I mean, your beautiful, funny, smart and caring. So, I was wondering if you would like to be my girlfriend?" He asked

I was trying not to faint,
"Yes!" I yelled then hugged him and he picked me up and twirled me like they do in the movies. Then he started singing;
"Oh yeah,
I'll tell you something.
I think you'll understand
When I say that something.
I want to hold your hand!
I want to hold your hand,
I want to hold your hand."

I was blushing out of control, but being the HUGE Beatlemaniac I am, I HAD to sing along.
"Oh Please,
Say To Me,
You'll let me be your man"

We both laughed at that, I should have said "woman"
then I started singing again;
"And Please!
Say To Me,
You'll let me hold your hand!
You'll let me hold your hand,
I Want to hold your hand!!"

I was smiling like a fool, especially when he joined me to sing the next part;
"And when I touch you
I feel happy Inside.
It's such a feeling that my love
I can't hide,
I can't hide,
I can't HIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIDE!"

I took a breather while he sang;
"Yeah you got that something'
I think you'll understand,
When I say that something'
I want to hold your hand!
I want to hold your hand,
I wanna hold Pru's hand!"

I laughed at how he changed up the lyrics.
Then I sang again;

"And when I touch you I feel happy inside"
I played with his hair, then continued to belt out the words to one of my favorite songs;
"It's such a feeling that my love,
I can't hide"
He sang;
"I can't hide"
We both sang;
"I can't hide!"

"Yeah you!
Got that something!
I think you'll understand
When I feel that something.
I wanna hold your hand!
I wanna hold your hand!
I wanna hold your HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAND!"

By then, his hand was in mine and we were giggling insanely.

Happy Halloween everyone :)
