Chloe tried every method in the book to hold the laughter, but the roaring boy brought it out in her. God, the boy’s own reaction to the joke was adorable to the brunette.
"You can be funny sometimes, Bobby.”
Bobby felt extremely proud of himself for making her laugh. “Hey, you’re lucky. You’re like the only person who gets to hear my jokes,” he informed her, “cherish it.” He wasn’t sure whether that made Chloe lucky or unfortunate, but Bobby never made jokes like that in public or when he was around his normal group of friends. His popularity would surely suffer if he did.
”No, no! Things come up always. Family is always more important,” Cecelia was basically lying through her teeth, but she didn’t want to make Maya feel like it was her fault. It wasn’t. She just didn’t always agree with what came out of her own mouth.
“I'll see if I can change the reservations to next week, okay?”
Maya smiled at her friend’s understanding, she didn’t even second-guess her sincerity. “Thank you, Cee,” she said, leaning forward for a sisterly hug.
But Maya immediately felt guilty once she heard Cecelia’s efforts for their supposed to be night out. “Reservations? Oh gosh, what did you have planned?”
no but seriously if you laugh at bobby’s jokes there’s a 99.99% chance he’ll think you’re his soulmate
”It’s official. You’re the king of cheesy.” Chloe let out a laugh, deep within she admired those jokes.
The brunette hesitated to encourage the joke to carry forward, but gave in anyway. “Who’s there?”
And that was when Bobby turned hysterical. He laughed uncontrollably and clutched his bare upper torso. He was a big fan of his own jokes.
He grinned at Chloe and said, “come on, Chlo, you gotta admit that was funny.”
"Oh, really? Ah, no, I get it…We can always pick another night. When’s good for you?” Sometimes, Cee wished her family had enough problems that issued her home on time, but at the same time, she really was glad she didn’t.
“Friday night,” she answered, saddened by the impending long wait. “Oh, I was so excited for this!” She basically planned her whole week around it. “I’m so sorry, Cee…”
Chloe used the video camera for old times sake. She always enjoyed filming her little adventures and take tons of photos that everyone got annoyed with eventually. Not it affected her passion for it all.
"Smile pretty for the camera!" the brunette simply rolled her browns, knowing this joke would be corny. "Why?"
“—-to get to your house!"
He raised his eyebrows up and down with a goofy grin on his face to get even the slightest trace of a laugh from her. Man was he corny.
Bobby laughed at himself and added, “alright, I have another one. Knock knock!”
“Of course, it’s our first date – I’ve been waiting too long for this to bail out.”
Maya smiled at his kind words. “You’re exaggerating,” she remarked, “although this could also be our last date if things don’t go so well.”
"I hope we are. Did something come up?”
“No, it’s just… I need to be home before midnight. Family stuff.” Maya was so embarrassed; this was to be her first girl’s night out in years and she got stuck with a curfew. Tough luck.
Bobby and his friend were at the poolside of this resort they were staying in. Summer vacation was finally here and his day couldn’t get any better.
“Are you— are you filming this? Why?" he asked, laughing. "Okay, nevermind. I have a joke… Why did the chicken cross the road?”
“Hey! Are we still up for tonight?”
