It’s been two days since I’d become Noah’s girlfriend. I have to say he was a great guy. He treated me like an angel. I felt like the queen of England with him. I was now waiting for him to pick me up. We were going to dinner. It took me about an hour to get ready; I found a simple casual peach dress with white flats. My hair was curled and my skin was soft. I heard the door bell and Jeremy brought him in. He was wearing Guess jeans with a black V-neck. (He was also wearing grey converse)
“You look great.” He hugged me. He smelled like Axe. I smiled and walked out holding his hand. We got in his black BMW and he drove me to a nice restaurant. We sat at a table for two and talked about our dreams and our past. He wanted to know what my parents were like.
“They were like the parents you see in TV. They were happily married and had a wonderful daughter. My mom she was a woman with grace. Her natural beauty made people turn. My father he was the sweetest ever. I remember that every morning he’d call my mother beautiful. (Even though she had crazy curly hair)My mother loved him and my father loved her. They both loved me.” I smiled. The memories didn’t seem bad with Noah.
“They do sound wonderful.” He said. I nodded and asked about his parents.
“Well before the whole marring Megan; my mother she was a bit commanding. She was always at work and my father he was too. I guess that’s why they fell in love. They were too much alike.” He smiled.” My mother was an amazing nurse and my father is the business man he is now. After time my father needed a PA. She had a boy my age. Nathan. My mother started getting these ideas that the Nathan was my fathers’ kid. She threw herself on drugs and liquor and much more. Then she became a huge criminal. My father felt depressed seeing her that way and he threw himself at Megan. “He looked so far way into his past.” Soon he married and threw my mother into a rehab center. She escaped and I haven’t seen since.” He said. I sighed. “Yeah, but I can’t help to love them both.” He added.
“Yeah, they’re your parents.” I smiled. We finished dinner and went over to his house. Nathan was in the living room chewing on lays. He offered and I grabbed some. Noah hated lays. He went into the kitchen and left me and Nathan alone.
“How was dinner?” He asked.
“It was great.” I said. He nodded and sipped his iced tea.
“Noah and his charm” He said. I smiled and he said something else. “I really wish I wasn’t dating Lisa and that you-“
“What are you guys talking about?” Noah walked back in with two water bottles. I shocked at what Nathan was about to say.
“Nathan here was asking how our night went.” I smiled. He sat on my other side and Nathan was looking at me. I was going to pretend I didn’t understand what he was about to say. Noah put his arm around me and I put my head on his shoulder. We were watching COPS. Nathan left us early and Noah drove me home around ten.
I fell asleep thinking of my parents. I pictured myself in my old bedroom. It was small and cute. The walls were a light yellow. The wooden floor was shiny and the huge window gave me a view to the small backyard with a pink kiddy pool and a decent patio set. My twin bed with Dora covers. I felt a small tear fall down my face and hit my pillow.
My dream took place in a meadow. My parents were sitting there dressed in white. I smiled and noticed I was a small girl again. I remembered that day. We had a picnic in the meadow and my father was telling my mother he wanted another baby. My mother was happy. She did want another kid. My mother stood up and grabbed my hand.
“Lilly sweetie it’s been awhile. You look nice.” She walked with me. My father grabbed my other hand and picked me up.
“How’s my little princess?” He asked. I smiled and wrapped my tiny arms around him. He had started crying. My mother did too. “I miss you honey.” He sobbed. I felt sad. I began to cry and kissed his cheek.
“I miss you to.” I said. He frowned and touched my face.
“We’ll be waiting here for you.” He said. I nodded and felt them fading. I woke up crying. I sat up on my bed and looked out my window the sun was coming out. I hugged myself and felt safe for a moment. I wiped my face and heard a knock on the door. My aunt walked in.
“I had a feeling you were crying.” She stood next to me. She rubbed my back.
