CHAPTER EIGHTEEN - Cheesy Date
“Bowling?” I asked when we entered the bowling alley, the sounds of pins being knocked down and cheers, and groans from the winning and losing teams filled the air. A small smile tugged at the edges of my lips as I turned towards Coal, who was looking at me expectantly.
“I didn’t think that on our first date you would be so willing to get your ass kicked so badly.” I told him with a smug smirk.
He rolled his eyes at me. “As if.” He scoffed. “I brought you here because I think it’s important at the beginning of a relationship to show the girl where she belongs.” He said jokingly.
I raised an eyebrow. “That’s actually really big of you Coal.” I told him smiling. “Not many men want to admit that a woman’s place in a relationship is as the male’s superior.”
He laughed loudly. “You’re all confused Lia; your place is as the subordinate.”
I grinned back at him. “Puh-lease.” I rolled my eyes. “You’re my bitch, and everyone knows it.”
He raised an eyebrow at my challenge. “Loser admits that the other is superior?” He asked, making it a bet.
My grin widened and I nodded my head. “Game on.” I accepted, grabbing his arm and pulling him towards the shoe booth.
Both of us told the man behind the counter our shoe sizes, and handed our shoes in, in return for the colourful pairs of sneakers. I pulled a face at the rental shoes. It was easily my least favourite part about bowling.
I ignored the fact that several pairs of sweaty feet had been inside the same pair of shoes I was now putting on, and instead focused on being sure to beat Coal. He wasn’t going to know what hit him. Not to brag but I rock at bowling.
Smiling to myself, I practically skipped all the way to the lanes that Coal had booked for us.
He followed behind me at a much less excited pace. Probably because he thought he had this game in the bag. Yeah right. I kicked butt at this game. I couldn’t stop my grin at the challenge Coal had presented me with. There was nothing I loved more than a challenge, and from the smug look on Coal’s face I was willing to bet he knew that.
That was probably the whole reason he had brought me here in the first place.
That thought brought a smile to my face. Coal cared enough to pay attention to me, even the things I didn’t tell him about myself. I could feel myself fall for him all the more because of it.
I wasn’t exactly a person who found it easy to open up to people. It meant a lot to me that Coal was at least meeting me half way on this, if not further. I watched him as he started typing our names into the machine, making them appear on screen above us.
I felt the beginnings of a new smile appear on the edges of my lips when I saw the name ‘Lia’ at the top. It started flashing letting me know it was my go. Smiling confidently I picked my bowling ball. I immediately went for the yellow one.
“Ready to get completely thrashed pretty boy?” I taunted him, wiggling my eyebrows teasingly. He smirked at me.
“Give it your best shot.” He said in a relaxed tone. Completely confidant. Pfft. I would show him he had reasons to worry. Turning back to the lane I threw the ball expertly down the centre of the lane, watching it as it crashed into the pins, making all of the fall.
I grinned, throwing Coal a smug look as I went to go sit back down.
He had a small smile on his face as he watched me, and he slowly stood up, getting ready to pick his own ball. He chose a dark green one, and imitated my throwing, getting an instant strike.
I sat up straighter when I saw this. He definitely had skill. This was going to be fun.
“Hey Lia…” Coal was calling out to me in a singsong voice. I ignored him, knowing he was only trying to distract me. We were now on our third game now having already tied the other two. I wasn’t sure how he was doing it but every throw I made Coal mimicked perfectly.
