An hour and a half flew on by and pretty soon we found ourselves outside once more. “So what did you think of the movie?” he asked. “It was nice.” I replied. “Anything else you want to do?” he asked.
I thought about it, and though there are probably a million other things I’d love to do with him right now… I probably should get home. No need to give my parents another reason to be mad at me.
“That’s fine.” he said when I explained that I needed to go. “Allow me to escort you home.” he added reaching for my hand once more.
This time I easily slipped mine into his. Is it bad for me to already get so comfortable with him?
With our hands still intertwined he said, “I have no idea where we are going… Maybe it’s better if you lead the way.” I replied with a laugh, “Sure thing.” And we walked slowly, side by side, towards my house.
Of course I had no intention of leading him directly to my house; with its battered appearance and constant screaming. So instead, I led him to the river a few minutes’ walk away from it. And so we stood there in silence for a while staring at the crystal glow of the water before, with a sigh, I released my hand from his grip.
He turned to me, “What’s wrong?” “Oh nothing.” I replied. “I just really need to get going.”
“But we haven’t reached your house yet…” he seemed sad that I was cutting our time short. I liked that. “It’s alright; it’s only a short walk from here up the hill. Besides you’ve already done more than enough for me today. Thank you.”
“Alright, you sure you don’t want me to…” he began. “I’m fine, honest!” I said hastily. If he tried to ask me one more time, I’d for sure cave in, and the last thing I would want to do is show him my family… “Ok then, if you’re absolutely sure.” he said with a smile. “I had a good time as well.” he added. He then started to lean towards me. Was he going to kiss me?!! Already ?!!
Instead, he wrapped his arms around me and gave me a long and sweet hug. Thank goodness… if he kissed me I would’ve begun to hyperventilate right on the spot… and that is something I’m sure most guys would find unattractive… I could feel the muscles on his toned arms as he held me. I could’ve melted right there.
After a bit he began to pull way, not completely though; his face was just a few inches away from mine and I could feel his warm breath blow on my lips. My face began to blush instantly. I found my hand raising itself to his face as if it had a mind of its own. I brushed his hair from his eyes so I could get a better look at him. He is without a doubt the most handsome guy I have ever seen….
“Thanks again.” I said. “For everything.” “Nah, it’s no big deal.” he replied with a smirk. “Next time, if you show up when you are supposed to…” he added teasingly, “We can do a lot more.”
“Which brings the question: When exactly is next time?” he asked. A part of me was hoping that he was just as eager to see me again, as I was to see him. “I’m free tomorrow…” I said with a smile. Was that too desperate sounding? Should I have said the day after or next week instead?…
“Tomorrow it is then.” he said while stepping a bit closer. “Can’t wait” he added. Could he be any more attractive right now?
“Same here.” I said while beginning to swiftly walk off. Thank goodness it was dark right now; if he could see my face in the light he wouldn’t be able to distinguish it from a tomato… “Aren’t you forgetting something?” he called out.
“What is it?” I called back. “A time and place.” he replied. “You don’t expect to leave me waiting around again, do you?” he added with a grin. “I have no plans all day so it’s your choice.” I replied. “Hmmm… since I want to spend more time with you… How about right here at noon?” “Sounds perfect, see you then.” I said as I waved to him while walking away.
Did that really just happen? Not only did Kiara O’Neil manage to go on a date (with someone who is extremely handsome -might I add- ) but she was going to meet him again? Maybe my luck in life was about to change…
Thankfully, when I entered the house my parents were asleep. I hadn’t realized how late it had gotten… It was almost 3 a.m! I tippy-toed as quietly as possible to my room; praying silently that they wouldn’t wake up.
I heard the sound of creaks from the springs in their bed and froze in place. Thankfully one of them was just turning over. I then swiftly proceeded to my room and shut the door.
I changed into the same old boring pajama of mine and stared at my drawer. I really need to change my wardrobe… I’m tired of the same old rags. I carefully folded the outfit given to me by Travis and placed it on the top of my clothes next to the dress from Juliana, and smiled. This was probably one of the best weekends of my life.
I clasped my hands together, and squealed silently in delight in front of the mirror as I stared at my red face. Is this what liking someone feels like?
I then walked over to my bed and tucked myself in. I closed my eyes slowly with a smile still plastered on my face. This was probably the first time that I will have gotten a good night’s sleep in years…
