“Ready to go?” Cam asked with a smile.
We’d finished getting ready and I was leaving Beth with them. I gave Diane directions, but she insisted that everything would be fine and I should just relax and have fun today. I wasn’t sure how I was supposed to do that since the little girl I would give my life for was going to be away from me all day with people that might not know how to take care of her. I knew I was overreacting since they’d been around us so much and have proved that they can easily take care of her. I also know that with Alex around she’ll be perfectly safe, but there’s that little piece of my mind that makes me worry about her all the time.
I gave Cam a half smile and nodded.
He took my hand and we went to their car. This was the first time I was going to see him drive and I was interested to see how good of a driver he was.
We got in the car and took off to who knows where.
“So Cam, mind filling me on the day’s happenings?”
“Nope.” He said with a smile.
“Butthead.” I grumbled and crossed my arms. What I wouldn’t give to look into that kid’s head for a minute.
He just chuckled at me though.
It was interesting to see him like that. He looked so happy and relaxed. I really liked it, especially compared to the frightened look that Laina usually inflicted.
I sighed, every time I thought about that it striked a pang of sadness. She was too cruel and I just enabled it. Which made me think, ‘why does he want to date me?’ It just didn’t make sense. I mean I knew he could easily talk to me, and he had told me so much, but I never thought to ask why that was. I always just accepted it.
I had a feeling that Cam could see my perplexed expression.
“Uh…Anna are you okay?”
I popped out of my thought bubble abruptly, “Oh! Yes, I’m sorry, I’m fine.” I gave him a nice smile.
He laughed, “Alright then, I just thought you looked a little bothered.”
“Nope! Perfectly perfectly perfectly fine.” I said a little too happily.
“Uh huh…” He said with a knowing smirk.
I just turned and looked out the window with red cheeks. I didn’t want to tell him my thoughts right then. That would have been embarrassing.
Finally we parked and I looked outside. “An aquarium?” I asked incredulously.
“Yes.” He said with a bright smile. “Come on.”
I got out and he walked over to me and grabbed my hand as we walked up to the front.
