On a cool fall night, Jess and Jessica sat down on their couch, wrapped up in blankets, and watched their favorite movie together- or rather, Jessica's favorite movie, the Karate Kid.
Jess had made some delicious popcorn to go along with their movie, and Jessica was extremely grateful, since it was one of her favorite snacks.
"Oh yum, popcorn..." Jessica stared, transfixed with the beauty of the kernel.
Jess looked over at Jessica, slightly weirded out that Jessica was just staring at her food, and not actually eating it.
"Are you going to eat it, Jessica?" she asked.
That was when the precariously balanced bowl of popcorn fell to the floor.
"Oh goodness!" Jess exclaimed. "Jessica, help me pick up the popcorn."
Jessica said nothing.
Jess stood up and began to collect up the popcorn, while Jessica ate her kernel.
"You know, you really should be helping me," Jess told Jessica.
"But you do such a good job, I would hate to get in the way," Jessica responded with a grin.
"Hi you guys!" Samantha said as she walked into the living room.
"Oh, hi Samantha! You look really pretty in that tutu!" Jess complimented.
Jessica had picked up another kernel of popcorn, and was once again infatuated with it.
"Oh, thanks! I'm just leaving for my dress rehearsal for the showcase tomorrow night. Would you two like to come and watch the show tomorrow? We have so many talented dancers that are going to be performing, and it would be so much fun if you can come," Samantha said.
"Of course we'll come! I mean, you come to all of my concerts, and all of Jessica's karate matches, so why shouldn't we come to your dance recital? I can't wait to see you perform!" Jess exclaimed.
Jessica stared some more at her popcorn.
"Oh good! I can't wait for you to see my dance! I choreographed it myself. Well, I should be going now. See you later!" Samantha started to leave the room.
Then she stopped and turned.
"Um, you do know that there is popcorn all over the floor, right?" Samantha asked.
"Ugh!!" Jess grunted. Jessica stared.
I hope that you enjoyed the first installment of this short series. Come back soon for the next part!
