Landon smiled when I walked up to him.
"Took you long enough" he said smiling taking me into his arms.
"Shutup." I replied giving him a quick kiss and wrapping my arms around his neck. I think this is why I liked Landon so much, I could be comfortable around him. Trust me, I'm not one for the whole PDA thing, but with Landon.. it's natural.
"So, what about that conversation with Nate about us?" He said.
"It didn't start off so good... Landon he told me he loved me." I choked out. I've been thinking about it, and I still have no idea what kind of "love" Nate was talking about.
"Love?" he pulled me in tighter as he thought about it. "He doesn't mean love love though, right? I mean you guys have been friends since forever, he could just mean as a sister..." he looked away, lost in his own thoughts.
"Well yeah, but he started yelling at me too. You don't yell at sisters you love." I told him. He laughed a bit under his breath and looked back at me.
"Yeah you do, it's all you do with siblings. But you wouldn't know that would you? Ms. Only Child.." I smiled up at him and hit the back of his neck. "He's probably just afraid he'll lose us." he finished
"That's exactly what he said" I told him, he smiled triumphantly. "BUT!" his face went into an overly dramatic sad expression "He didn't seem like he meant it.."
"Ace, I'm sure he meant it." he brushed a piece of my brown hair behind my ear "Stop worrying so much." he gently leaned down and kissed my forehead lightly.
"You know I hate when you do that." I whined. He smiled and started kissing my forehead rapidly. "Landon!" I yelled pushing him away, but he kept me locked and continued planting kisses on my head. I laughed and pushed him playfully until he finally stopped, he rested his forehead against mine.
"I really like you, Ace. You know that right? I'd do anything for you" he whispered, drawing invisible circles on my cheek.
"I know, Landon." I said smiling, wishing that I could just live there, in his arms forever.
Getting to sleep in on Saturday mornings is the best feeling.. for most people. For Nate? He's up at the crack of dawn (actually like 8 A.M.) knocking on my bedroom door.
"Nate, go away." I said into my pillow. My door swung open and he carried in two Starbucks coffees and two muffins.
"I'm hurt!" he gasped, throwing a muffin at my head. "Get up," he said with a mouthful of muffin "I got stuff to do, and I'm not waiting for your lazy ass to carry itself outta bed at one in the afternoon."
"I don't have a lazy ass." I grumbled pulling the covers over my head.
"Whatever, you have a perky ass. Just get outta bed." He grabbed the covers and tossed them across the room.
"NATE." I yelled. "How about you stop being a freak of nature and actually sleep in the morning?" I was seriously regretting giving him a spare house key.
"Just get dressed." He said, not moving. I coughed.
"What?" he replied, spraying muffin all over my carpet. I pointed to the door and he nodded "Oh yeah, yeah right. You need some 'Lady Time'." He winked at me and left muffin and coffee in hand.
I had no idea where we were going, probably somewhere far away. Ever since he got that old junk car of his, he'd bring me on road trips to the middle of nowhere. He brought me to a corn farm once.
I chose jeans, my favorite quarter sleeve, and a pair of Ugg's. Put on a little bit of makeup and made my way downstairs. Nate and my dad were talking at the kitchen table when I came downstairs.
"Morning, sweetie." My dad said smiling at me warmly.
"Morning, Dad." I replied, taking my muffin off the kitchen table. Nate stood up and got his coat.
"Where you two goin today?" My dad asked, taking a sip of coffee. I shrugged and looked at Nate.
"It's a surprise." He said looking at my dad then to me. "It's not a corn farm this time, promise." My dad chuckled from behind his magazine, and I smiled at them both.
"Thank god." I said. "Ready to go?"
"Ace," my dad said not looking up from his magazine "be home reasonably this time? And Nate?" he looked up at him "Son, could you bring her somewhere with cellphone service for once?" Nate grinned and nodded. "Good. You kids have fun." I got my coat off of the rack and tugged a hat over my brown curls. And with a wave to my dad, we were off on our usual Saturday adventure.
