I wake up to the setting autumn sun and the sound of the waves crashing against the rocky shore just outside my window.
I look around me and notice that Kiara is in my arms sound asleep… She has too much faith in me, I mean I am a guy after all.
And the way her leg is over me is kind of… Stop it right there, Travis. I need to get a hold of myself, I mean we haven’t even been here a day yet. I give her a quick kiss on the forehead, lay her down gently and get up.
I go to the restroom and take a moment to flush my face with water. I’m not one to normally turn red easily but Kiara just finds a way to make my face burn up. And she is so innocent I don’t even think she notices what she is doing half the time.
I take another glance at myself in the mirror and chuckle to myself. “Well, it looks like things around here are going to be much more interesting.” I then proceed to brush my teeth and freshen up.
I take another glance at Kiara before heading downstairs, the reflection of the setting sun behind her creates a glow on her legs and back… I could feel the color rushing back to my cheeks… Note to self, buy Kiara longer pajamas.
I think I’ll start to prepare some dinner. My mind flashed back to how Kiara had a surprised look on her face earlier when she found out I could cook. Though I failed miserably on our first date – I blame the outdoor grill – I redeemed myself during lunch today. Can’t wait to see what kind of expression she’ll make this time. I smiled to myself.
My thoughts were interrupted by the phone ringing by the sink.
I walked over and checked the caller I.D… it was Odette, a friend. Wasn’t she supposed to be away?
Wonder what this could be about… I clicked talk and cautiously said, “Hello?…”
“Hey Travis! Haha, you sound so scared. What’s up?”
“Not much, and I’m not scared, I was just curious about what you could be calling about… Weren’t you supposed to be back at your parents’ place for the break?”
“Yeah… unfortunately that didn’t work out since they decided they wanted to go skiing in Aspen and I hate the cold so I thought I would just stay here with Devon and his family.”
“Oh, I see. So what’s up?”
“Well me, Ryan, Devon, Bethany and the gang were thinking of having a little party at my house at 8:00? You in?”
My mind flashed back to Kiara sound asleep upstairs… I don’t know how she would react to me taking her to meet my friends so soon, but I’m sure she wouldn’t mind if I said yes…
“I’m in… hey do you mind if I bring someone special along?”
“Ooooo, ‘someone special’ do you have a secret girlfriend you’ve been hiding from us?”
“Maybe… something like that.”
“Being mysterious, eh? Well, can’t wait to meet the surprise mystery lady, bring whoever you like! See you soon, bye!”
“Bye.” and with a click I placed the phone back in its holder. Well this is an interesting turn of events.
“Rise and shine, sunshine.” I said after returning to the room. Maybe it would’ve been better to ask Kiara whether or not she was up for going to this party… she looks like she is out cold.
Her birthday is coming up, I wonder what I should get her. Even though we talked extensively on the trip here, it still seems like there is much about her I have yet to discover… maybe at the party I’ll ask some of my female friends for advice.
Her eyes began to flutter open. When she saw me looking down at her she squeezed them shut. “How long have you been standing there?” she said. “Not long.” I said with a smile. “I don’t talk in my sleep or something do I?…” she asked while a little flush of color came to her cheeks. “Not as far as I can tell.” I replied with a smirk.
“Thank goodness…” she mumbled while hopping up. She turned to the window and stared at the setting sun with awe. “It’s so beautiful here.” she said softly. “You’re so beautiful.” I said aloud unintentionally… I meant to keep that thought in my head. She smiled while her cheeks began to turn red and turned to me. “Up for going to a party and meeting my friends?” I asked. “Sure!” she exclaimed happily. And I was worried that she wouldn’t have any energy.
After getting changed, I told her I’d meet her in the garage when she was done… after a while I could hear the sound of clicking heels coming down the stairs into the garage. I saw the door creak open and she stepped through shyly… My God, she looked amazing.
I turned to keep myself from staring at her any longer. “So which car would you like to take?” I said striking a simple conversation to distract myself from her attire. “The gold one!” she replied happily. We got into the car, and began to drive out. It appears it’s going to be a long night…
