“Welp, welcome home” I stated, as we walked into our house. It kinda felt weird saying that after all these years but at the same time I liked it. She looked around hesitantly, I guess she was trying to remember things or whatever. Miracle walked over to me and rubbed her…
“You are still coming to VA with us right?” I asked as we were sitting on my couch watching a random movie.
”As a matter of fact is not a question. You don’t have a choice. I’m not leaving you alone here” I said before she could even answer…
“Get the fuck out the bed!” I yelled, shaking Harlem.
“Leave me alone..” I heard her say.
“You can’t lat in bed for the rest of your life Harlem!”
“I have no life!” She yelled back.
“Getcha ass out the bed. “We need to go do something fun while you still can..” I joked.
Haven’t gotten a lot of feedback.. If I don’t get a lot tomorrow it won’t be out till late Tuesday maybe.. Sorry. Authors only ask for some feedback to know that their story is good or not.
“C’mon, Ray, say what you have to say already! You know I am so curious, why do you keep torturing me?” I begged, jumping on my best friend’s lap.
“Because I want to say it on the right time;”
“And the right time is at dinner, where will be lots of people around us? I must say, not a really smart idea.”
Ray held my chin and made me look at him in the eyes.
“Trust me, you wanna wait.”
I shrugged and whispered “Okay”. Ray made me lay down on his shoulder and caressed my hair.
It turns out that I was in love with him. Well, I’ve realized that a couple of months ago. And now he invited me to dinner, saying that he had something to tell me? What the fuck am I supposed to think? Damn, I wish I wasn’t so curious.
As the afternoon went by, we watched a few movies, cuddling on the sofa. My heart was beating fast through the whole time, and I was praying that Ray wouldn’t notice it. He did nothing to chance our position, so I guess he didn’t.
Ray left by 5 o’clock, saying he’d pick me up at 7:30. I ran upstairs to start getting ready.
Exactly 7:30. I heard the door opening. God, don’t faint. Zae, don’t you dare fainting.
“I’m here!” Ray shouted, and my heart skipped a beat.
“Coming!” I shouted back, going downstairs. When I was at the last step, I saw him. Wearing a black suit, holding a bouquet of white roses, with a lonely red rose in the middle.
“These are for you.” he handed me the flowers, smiling.
“You adorable bastard, always paying attention to what I say…” the roses smelled so good. And so did Ray, I realized when hugging him.
“You said that you believed that boys should give a bunch of white roses and just one red rose, because that symbolizes the girl he’s in love with is the highlight in the crowd.”
“Good student, you are.” I said, putting the flowers in a vase. “Shall we go?”
“Sure.” We began to walk towards the way out, when I felt his hand on mine, and our fingers intertwining. This would be a great night.
Ray took me to a fancy dinner, which provided us a good time. After we ate, he guided me to a park.
“I’ve never been here.” I said, smiling. There was a beautiful garden surrounding the park, trees, swings and a few kids toys. In front of us, a gorgeous, shining with the moonlight, lake.
“Do you like it?” he whispered near my ear, while putting his hands around my waist.
“It’s so beautiful.” I said turning around and facing him. “But… Why did you bring me here?”
He looked right into my eyes.
“Because I have something to tell you, remember?”
“And that something would be…?”
Ray’s hand went up to my cheeks, where he caressed me.
“I love you, Zae. I can’t hold this to myself no longer, and I’ll totally understand if you decide to avoid me -“
I kissed him, making all that non-sense talking stop. The kiss was so much better than I ever imagined, it was soft, full of feeling. We only stopped cause we needed to breathe.
“I won’t ever, EVER, avoid you. I love you too much to be capable of doing that.”
“I love you, too. I’ve always did.” then he leant in and kissed me again, and I knew from then on we would never be apart.
I need some new ones… I hate waiting on new chapters..
