*6 months later*
Caden and I walked hand in hand down the hallway. I had my bag slung over my shoulder, two of my books in Caden’s free hand. The necklace he had gotten me hung around my neck, the little emerald shining brightly.
We stopped by Kasey’s locker, waiting for her to arrive.
“So what are we doing Saturday?” Caden asked
I shrugged “How much money do you have?”
“Oh, I’m paying now?” He asked, amused.
I smiled innocently at him, “Of course you are”
He groaned. “Alright let’s do something free.”
“So you’re just coming over again?”
“Yup.” He grinned.
I laughed as Kasey approached her locker, a smile on her lips. “Hey Kase, what’s up?”
She shrugged, “Nothing.”
“How’d that date go with Matt?” Caden asked. He had hooked Kasey up with one of his friends Matt. We saw him quite frequently since he delivered pizza to my house almost every Friday now.
Her smile widened, “It went amazing.”
“Really?” I asked. “Please elaborate.”
“We went to the movies…” She trailed off slowly, grabbing a few books. I made a face. Kasey was definitely cruel. I had been dying to know how their date had turned out. “And we were sitting there and he put his arm around me…”
“Awe!” I gushed affectionately.
She laughed, “He drove me home and walked me to my door.”
Caden laughed, “Damn, didn’t know Matt could be such a gentleman.”
“Shut up.” I hissed, “I wanna hear the story!”
Caden rolled his eyes, opening his mouth to say something else. I clamped my hand over his mouth, ignoring when he started licking it.
I’d been through this too many times to care anymore.
Kasey laughed at our interaction before continuing “Anyways, so we’re standing on my porch and all the lights are off at home. So Matt goes in to kiss me but I stopped him and told him I didn’t kiss on the first date. So he says ‘Guess that’s a good excuse to ask you on another’”
I squealed at the cuteness, pulling my hand away from Caden’s mouth.
“I know!” Kasey squealed with me.
