There was a knock on the door and I already knew who it would be . Paul . Of course it would be him . I sighed and walked over , answering the door in my skinny jeans , my knit beanie hat , and my " Animal Rescue Volenteer shirt " on . I ran a hand through my long straight hair . Paul smiled, seeing me .
" Hey . I was thinking maybe we could have some breakfast and then we could go to the movies or something ? " he asked me .
I shrugged .
" Sure . " I said witha shrug , grabbing my sunglasses and my bag , walking out , shutting the door behind me .
Danica had dissapeared this morning and I suspected she was with Embry . Maybe . Maybe not . You never know . Paul wrapped his arm around my waist as we got in his car . I pulled out my ipod and put my earbud in one of my ears, leaving the other one empty so we could talk if he wanted to.
" So , I've been meaning to ask you. I know we've only been on one date .... " he said, trailing off .
Please don't say it . Please don't say it .....
" But are we offical ? I mean , do you want to be a couple ? " Paul asked .
Damn . He said it.
I cleared my throat , not really knowing what to say . Pushing people away was what I did . It was how I protected myself .Paul looked over at me curiously and I felt like burrying my head in my hands . What was I doing ? He was a nice guy , right ? He was interested in me , right ? What was I doing !?!
" Sure .... " I said , on the spur of the moment .
Oh . Opps .
Brain : This is perfectly alright . Paul seems like a nice young man . You would make a great couple . I'm very proud of you Kathleen .
Heart : NO ! This is wrong ! She isn't supposed to be with him . Turn your ass around and walk away girl ! You don't want Paul ! You want someone else ! Don't fight it !
Brain : Shut up, heart ! Don't you know that she's been wounded enough ?!
Heart : No , YOU shut up, Brain ! Listen to your heart ! Heart knows best !
Liver : ............
I started breathing hard , but hid it easily by faking coughs .
" Are you alright ? " Paul asked .
I felt like saying " No I am clearly NOT alright ! Are you freakin blind ?! " but I said " Yeah , I'm fine , thanks for asking . "
We got to the diner and Paul got the door for me . His politeness was wearing me down . He was slowly winning me over ...
Heart : NO !
Brain : YES !
Liver : SHUT UP !
We ordered and ate , talking about simple things . After we ate , we walked back out to his car and I felt eyes on me . I saw someone out of the corner of my eye . Jacob . My breathing picked up more as I shook my head, keeping my shades on , sliding into Paul's car as we drove off towards Port Angles where the closest movie theater was .

I was walking through Forks when I saw someone get into Paul's car . I already knew who it would be . Kathy . Of course it would have to be Kathy . I clenched my teeth together to keep from screaming as I watched them drive off . Words cannot describe what I was feeling in that moment and I still remember it as one of my most painful memories I've ever known .

Paul and I walked into the romantic comedy he picked out and I laughed at the funny times and even at the romantic parts because , even though I was a very deep hopeless romantic , it just didn't feel right watching it all play out on the screen . Romance was meant for two people . Not a movie theatre with staged actors who never really cared about eachother . Halfway through the movie , Paul reached over and grabbed my hand gently . I put my head on his shoulder , my dark hair fanning out over his shoulder as we countinued to watch the move . It was actually nice..... but I wasn't letting my gaurd down to easily. I have no tolerance for dissapointment . None . You get ONE shot . And if you miss , then it's your fault and as far as I'm concerned , you don't get another one . I've found through painful experience that the more chances you give someone , the more it hurts and the longer it stings . I was tired of it hurting and stinging me to the core . It was time for me to heal , not be ripped back open again . Maybe I was crazy . Probably , but that's how I thought . That's how I still think .
" Do you want some popcorn ? " Paul asked me .
I shook my head .
" No thank you . I think i'm going to go grab a bottle of water . I'll be back . " I muttered , getting up from my seat .
" Hurry back ." Paul smiled .
I nodded and walked out of the theatre and right smack into someone . It was like hitting a wall .
" OH ! I'm so sorry . Are you okay ? KATHY ! Hey Kathy ! " Seth's Clearwater's excited voice rang out .
I nearly fell over from the exceitement . At least I would've if I wasn't already on the floor . He extended a hand , helping me up and pulled me into a hug .
" Um, hey , Seth . " I said , rubbing the back of my head.
" Are you okay ? Sorry about that . " he said with a smile .
" Nah , it's fine . It was my fault . " I replied, with a small smile of my own .
There was just something about that kid that made you want to smile .
" Are you seeing a movie ? " he asked .
I laughed and motioned to the " MOVIE theatre sign " to which he blushed .
" Yeah, I'm seeing that sappy romantic comedy . " I explained .
" With Bella ? Or Danny ? " he asked , recalling my friend that'd he'd met in the emergency room when I'd gotten hurt .
" Nope . Paul . " I said .
Seth's smile faded , but he managed to cover it up well.
" That's nice." he said , and I could tell that he was lying .
I nodded .
" So are you two .... a couple now ? " he asked suddenly .
I cleared my throat .
" Apparently . " I said , shrugging .
" That's ... nice . I have to go . " Seth said and moved his way quickly through the theatre .
" Everyone is so damn wierd . " I muttered , paying for my water and walking back to the theatre .
Halfway through the movie, I got a text and looked down at it in my pocket , shielding the light so that people wouldn't see it in the theatre .
Can we talk ?
