It was date night.
I was panicking.
"What should I wear.What should I wear?What should I freaking wear?!",I asked myself as I riped through me dresser and my closet."And wear the hell is Temperance?!"
"Look here missy,"said a voice behind me,"I'm here now so there is NO need for that kind of language.and I brought you something so you better love me!"
I laughed and turned around."Sorry."
"Its ok,but that's not what I want to hear right now."she replied and cupped her ear like she was trying to hear something.
"Thank yoooouu"I said sweetly hugging her."Thank you soo much!"
She didn't look completely satisfied but she accepted it.Then she reached into her bag and pulled out some deep blue fabric."Now go put this on."I nodded and unfolded the fabric to reveal a beautiful,simple dress
"OMGOSH!It's perfect.Thank you sooooo much."I squeezed her tightand planted a kiss of her cheek. "I could kiss you!"
"Uhh you just did and your welcome.",she said and we both laughed.
I took a deep breath in,let it all out in a whoosh,and checked myself in the mirror.Why are you so nervous about this?I asked myself.Ususally i'm cool,calm,and colected.My wolf decided to answer that question for me.
Because she not just some random girl....she our mate.Do you know how much it will suck if this got messed up tonight?
The understatement of the year.So suck it up and make a good impression!!!
And so I did.I looked at myself in the mirror for a second more.Then I went down stairs,grabed my keys and started my way there.
I came out of my bathroom and Temperance immediately started gushing."Awww you just look so pretty....",she went on like that for a couple of minutes.
"Ok,"she cleared her throat to regain composure,"you thank people too much..So when is he coming to pick you up?"
"Err i'm meeting him at the park..."
She gave me a wired look,"Why?"
"Well..."I began.She just looked at me expectantly."I-I guess...I just don't think i'm..ready for him to meet my folks." Which was only partialy a lie.If my parents met him they'd know what he was almost on the spot.
At first she just raised her eyebrow at me,but after a moment let it go."So when are you meeting him?"
"7:30ish",she just nodded.So I went to my closet and pulled out my black ballet flats.After I put them on,I went over to my old full length mirror.I liked what I saw in it.The dress was a halter dress.The color was a deep blue,but not so deep that it couldn't be worn any ol' day.It was nice enough that it could be considered dressy,but simple enough that it was also pretty casual.
I turned around and said,"Wish me luck."
"Good luck.",Temperance said as she hugged me.
Where is she???I was pacing.I tried sitting down on the bench again.I also knew I was over-reacting.She would be here soon.It wasn't like she was late,but rather I had been early.My leg started jumping up and down,so I stood up to make it stop,and started pacing again.
Man I was a wreck.Breath,just breath.So there was more sitting.Then more involuntary fidgeting.Then more standing and pacing.I'd never been this nervous before.Then finally,finally.I hear a car pull up behind me.I hold my breath and turn around.
