A Few Steps Behind

Published by Joshua Rodriguez
In the summer before her first year of high school, Lizzie McGuire took a trip that would change her life forever. But Lizzie didn't like change. A small difference in her everyday routine wasn't that big of a deal, but a change too big could send Lizzie into cardiac arrest. How big? Try "becoming-a-major-Italian-pop-star-and-kissing-your-best-friend" big. Now, becoming the next best thing in Italy since sliced bread was an easy enough thing for Lizzie to forget about, but her little rendezvous with Gordo on the balcony wasn't about to leave her mind any time soon. If asked, Lizzie would deny all recollection of such a thing happening, but deep down she knew that it was the most mind-blowing, out of this world kiss she had ever had the pleasure of experiencing.

Gordo knew just as well as Lizzie that she did not like change, so he made a point never to mention the kiss to her. Ever. This was fine with Gordo, of course, on account of him being the shiest boy on the planet. So Gordo and Lizzie spent the next year and half sneaking looks at each other, but then darting their eyes away.

Gordo had been waiting for that kiss Lizzie gave him in Rome his entire life, and it didn't take much to convince him to take action. Over the years, friends of Lizzie and Gordo had watched their whole relationship play out, and they had become fed up with the ridiculousness of the whole ordeal. So they poked, prodded, and stuck their noses where they didn't belong, just like any true friend would. Months later, they did the impossible and witnessed a miracle. Gordo walked up to Lizzie, with about as much confidence as a mouse up against a cat, and asked her out. Much to his surprise, Lizzie accepted before he could even finish, and they have been together ever since.

Now, both 18 and in their senior year in high school, Lizzie and Gordo are about to embark on the biggest adventure of their lives.

"Finally, the last college application is filled out! Now I can sit back, relax, and enjoymy senior year," Lizzie breathed a sigh of relief as she put the last set of papers intoan envelope."Watch out! Coming through!"In the next split second, Lizzie watched Matt, in what seemed like slow motion, flythrough the room on his roller blades. Before she could do anything to stop him, heknocked over Lizzie's smoothie, sending a pink wave of liquid fruit to land ALL overher newly finished college applications."Matt, you weasel! Get back here! I'm gonna kill you!" Lizzie screamed, filled withrage. She started to chase after Matt, but he was on roller blades, and easilyescaped Lizzie's grasp, leaving her with a sticky mess of college applications."MOM!" she yelled at the top of her lungs, hoping for some sort of aid to salvage hercollege career."What is the problem, Lizzie?" Jo said as she poked her head into the kitchen. "Oh,honey, what happened here?""Matt! That's what happened. You guys should have sent him off to the kennel like Ioriginally suggested.""Alright, we can fix this. All we have to do is get new envelopes, Lizzie. Theapplications are safe," Jo assured her."Mom, if I have to lick one more envelope there will be no moisture left on mytongue!""Aww, you must be stressed out. Here, while I clean this up for you, why don't youand Gordo see a movie? My treat. Go celebrate the end of filling out collegeapplications," Lizzie's mother went to her purse and pulled out $40."Thanks, Mom."
