Chapter 2

Check Yes Or No

It started way back in third grade.
I used to sit beside Emmylou Hayes

"NO!" Joey Richter yelled at his best friend. It was third grade and Emma Hayes asked if she could borrow his markers. "Why don't you ask someone else?!"
"Well, I just don't know anyone else, Joey!"
"Sorry, Emma. I just don't want to lose any of them!"
Emma cocked her head to the side. "But, Joey, aren't you my friend?"
"Of course I am! We're best friends, Emma!"

Still like two kids with stars in our eyes.
Ain't much changed, I still chase Emmylou

Joey was nervous. Sure, Emma's been his friend since third grade, but they were seventeen now and he had a bit of a crush on her. He chased her around, making sure she didn't date other boys.
But he was too nervous to ask her out himself. He had been for two years.
And prom was coming up. He needed a date.
Emma was having the same problem, though neither of them knew it. She had been crushing on him since fourteen years old.
She wanted to be his so badly, the only thing in the way was their friendship. They'd been friends since third grade and she wasn't willing to risk it all on a silly crush. Maybe if she knew who he liked...
That's it! She'd write him an anonymous note! She could ask him to prom, blindly!
She smiled to herself and got to writing.

A pink dress, a matching bow, and her pony tail

Joey had gotten a note. Will you go to prom with me? Meet me at the doors at 7 sharp on prom night.
On a limb, he decided to do it. Emma certainly wasn't going to go with him. She told him she had a date.
It was 6:50 and Joey was really nervous. What if it was that girl from biology that was really weird and no one really liked? What if it was some girl that he would later need a restraining order on?
Why am I here? I should just leave... he thought to himself as he looked around. He wasn't sure who it was going to be, why should he stay?
And there was Emma. She was wearing a really pretty pink dress that matched her tan skin and dark hair perfectly. Her hair was up in a fancy ponytail and she looked...gorgeous.
Where was her lucky date?
But, no, Emma walked over to him.
"Hi, Joey," she smiled.
"Hey, Emma!"
"Uh, I have...something...for you." She handed him a note.
Do you love me? Check yes or no.
There were two boxes with yes and no written below them.
Joey smiled. "Yes."
And they finally knew.

Do you love me, do you wanna be my friend?
And if you do, well then don't be afraid
To take me by the hand If you want to.
I think this is how love goes, check yes or no
