…I guess I should start from the beginning.
Norma kept asking me about the girl staying in room four. What was her name again? Oh, Annika. I just remember her wearing that inappropriately revealing dress and Norman staring at her. It was so annoying. Okay… back to the point.
At first, I thought it was nothing but then Norma seemed really concerned, like pacing-back-and-forth nervous. I felt bad for her. I told Norma the only information I knew – that Norman drove with Annika into town, to show her where Olive and Anchor is located. But this didn’t really seem to make Norma feel better. In fact, it made her more agitated.
I can’t believe I’m going to admit this (hopefully no one of authority is going to read this) but we let ourselves into Annika’s room to look around for clues! I know. That’s a big violation of privacy. I’ll admit that it was my idea, but I felt it was the only way to help. I would never look through someone’s stuff! But I mean, we were worried. So it’s okay, right?
It was so weird finding all the, um, stuff, Annika had in her room. Let’s just say Annika has an interesting sex life. Norma asked me not to tell Norman about looking through Annika’s stuff. It wasn’t until later that I realized I shouldn’t have told Norma about Norman going with Annika.
So, I told Norman what I had said to Norma. He wasn’t mad or anything, which was good. At least things with Norman aren’t that unclear. I mean, honestly, things with Norman are good. I’m happy.
We had a really nice date at this seafood restaurant in the village. The food wasn’t nearly as good as the conversation. We talked about life, how things are changing for us, and S-E-X (I know). I feel like I’m getting to see this new side of Norman. I know that’s obvious because things are different when you’re “just friends.” But Norman seems so innocent, but somehow so grown up.
Norman also said something so sweet about us. It’s too private to share here, but I’ll always remember it. It made me realize how much I really like him. I think sometimes you just have to be a little patient with Norman. Eventually he figures things out and does the right thing, like asking me out. Finally! Anyway, I can’t wait to see him tomorrow. Things are going to be awesome this year! I just know it!
