I finished the last of my work and sat back into my chair. Oh, the joys of work. This isn't actually pretty bad really. At least it is not sweating my ass off at some fast food restaurant with greasy food. Or at a clothes shop helping people out. I'm not going to get into that though. I piled the finished papers on my desk so someone may collect them. I took another stack of papers and headed off to Coy's desk. I placed the papers on his keyboard and left the company.
My brother said he was going to be late so I had the house to myself for the rest of the night. What should I have to eat? Maybe I could just order some pizza. I was about to walk out of the building when I seen that it was pouring. Great. I can't leave in this weather! I looked back at my phone. I can't call my bro because he'll get angry at me for calling him when he's busy. I'll just have to walk into the rain.
I headed out the doors when I heard a familiar voice. "Wait!" Someone grabbed my arm. I turned around to see it was Coy. "I'll drive you home. I don't want you to catch a cold!"
I blushed. My hearts was beating from the sudden contact of his skin on mine. "Ah, yes. No. Uhhh, yeah. Okay." I pulled at my sweater, looking down at the floor. God, this is embarrasing.
"Okay, good. Let me get my coat and my keys." I heard his footsteps run off as I stood in the lobby. Mind as well sit down I guess. I sat down on one of the couches and looked down at my feet. Was I falling in love with him? Is that even possible? I mean, I use to like him for just his looks. This. This is totally different. This feeling is going to be one that will never disappear no matter how much I hope for it to be gone.
Familiar footsteps came running back. I looked up to see Coy. He smiled at me. "Come on, let's go! I still got work to do." He pulled me up as we headed out the door.
"You're busy and you still have work?" I put my purse over my head as we ran to his car. His large, strong hand almost guided me to wherever. I passed the thought and focused on getting into the car.
"I do, but I want you to get home safe and not wet." We got into the car and buckled up. I was out of breath from the running. I need to start exercising more. He pulled out of his company's parking lot and we went off onto the road.
Most of the ride home was in silence. The only thing playing was the quiet music. Rap, pop. Whatever was on, it was playing. I stared out the window as it poured harder. I could barely see out the window because of it. I could see some shops and old shops that I knew that were now closed down. I couldn't believe that it was pouring this much. It rarely rains around here.
We pulled into my driveway. It was around 6-7 p.m. already. "We're here." I looked over to see Coy smiling. "Oh! Before you go, I wanted to ask you something." His face had gone pink, almost red.
"Hmm, sure. What is it?"
"Would you like to go on a date with me again?" I looked over at him. I held onto his hand as he looked up at me.
"Sure. Sounds fun." I smiled back at him. Embarrasing! Why the heck would you touch his hand and tell him that? He smiled at me.
Before I was about to leave I was pulled into a kiss that didn't last long. It was like a simple peck, but meant everything to me. I felt my face heat up. I watched him freak out a bit. "Sorry! Sorry!"
I laughed at his reaction. "It's okay! It's okay!" I smiled. "Goodnight." I pecked him on the cheek and left the car. I held my purse above my head. I got to the doorway just to see Coy pulling out, back on the road towards the company. I went into the house, putting down my purse. I took off my clothes and put on some sweat pants and a t-shirt.
I went over to the couch and sat down. "Why did I peck him on the cheek?" I grabbed a pillow and smashed my face into it. I groaned. Dear God! What am I doing? It's not like I haven't kissed a guy before, but seriously! Why the living heck would I do something like that? So not like me in the least! Stubborn ass.
I tried to calm down by calling the pizza place. Ordering bacon pizza, yum! I waiting for it by watching television. This wasn't like the normal. My family would normally make homemade food and that would be passed down the line, but since I moved out, ordering stuff was very common for me. Almost all the time I would order something or go out to eat.
Maybe I should find an apartment since my bro is gonna marry Liz. He did say that I could have this house to myself though. What would I do with it though? It's kind of run down. Not much space. Of course it would have to do, but still. I sat there started at the ceiling with the TV playing in the background when a knock came to the door.
"Hello? Someone order a pizza?" I got up, inturrupting my thoughts.
"Ah! Yeah, sorry! One minute!" I ran to the door to get my pizza. I opened it up to see Liz's little brother! Alex? Yes, it was Alex. "Alex is that you?" He lifted his face up to meet mine.
"Holy crap! Nilda? Oh my God! It has been forever!" Alex was that boy that had a really feminine face. I mean, you look like a 16-year-old girl face! Alex hates it, but I'm sure he'll grow to like it.
"Yes! How you doing?" I let him inside so he doesn't get wet while giving him the money for the pizza.
"Oh, I'm doing grand." He looked down at his phone. "Ah, crap! I gotta go! Here." He gave me a slip of paper with a phone number on it. "Call me so we can go drinking sometime! I don't care when!" He left my house. I waved good-bye from the window as he left. I went into the kitchen and pulled up two bacon pizzas. I finished them in a short amount of time then got a text message.
I looked at my phone to see it was Coy. I'll come pick you up! Wear something that is casual, not too fancy. Maybe something that shows some skin. ;)
I ignored his winky face and replied him back with a simple okay. I'm guessing the date is going to be tomorrow. Maybe after work. I wonder how it will go along. I blushed as I thought of how cute he was, especially with that reaction from earlier. I held onto my pillow and decided to go to bed before I get way too into the entire idea of going on a date with him.
I mean, of course we went on some dates. Those dates were only friend or business dates, not actual dates. I am starting to like and accept him.
I shut off the TV and the lights. I went to the kitchen and put away the pizza. I went to my bedroom and passed out on my bed. Wonder how my day will go tomorrow.
