"Check please," I said softly to the waiter, who looked at me in confusion.
"Uh... I guess you're gonna need a box," he said before taking the plate of lobsters off and letting me pay. Zayn was chuckling as we slid out of the booth. He interlocked our fingers as I raced, red-faced and embarrassed, out of the resturaunt.
"Why are you going so fast, beautiful?" Zayn said, still laughing as I spun around to face him. I had tears bulging in my eyes and that seemed to release them - they were now falling down my face. I sniffled and wiped at my face with my hands.
"Beacause," I cried, "I'm trying to get this stupid resturaunt and my stupid mistake behind me! I am an awful girlfriend Zayn, awful!"
"What, Ivy!" He said, now trying to pull me close to him. "Why would you say such a thing?"
"Because I am!" I said, protesting and sobbing into his shoulder. "I can't flirt, I can't even take my boyfriend on a date he doesn't hate, heck, I probably can't even kiss!"
He then was pulling my face to his, kissing me then. I felt the fireworks like I always did, a bit of my tears mixing onto our lips. I pulled away and sniffed, looking into his big brown eyes. Zayn kissed my cheeks, swooping up any tears that were still lurking on my face.
"You need to realize that number one, I do not hate this date. Actually, I'm having a great time... Because I'm with YOU." Zayn said, smiling sweetly at me. "Second, you are an amazing kisser." He smirked then. "My friends are actually jealous of me." I blushed, and he chuckled at my red face. "And third, you are NOT an awful girlfriend. Your flirting's cute, I love how you get all tongue-tied when you see me. You're beautiful, you're special, you're kind, sweet, funny..."
I smiled at him, and before I could say anything, he pressed a finger to my lips.
"And that," he said softly, "is only a couple of reasons why... why, well, why I love you."
My breath caught in my throat. He had never said that before. I looked into his eyes, tears coming back - but this time for a good reason. "I... I love you too, Zayn."
