The sun beat down on my face, the playful screams of childeren were all around. The wind brushed through my hair and my bright blue sun dress. I felt awkward dressing so nice for somebody that I had just met, but my mom has in her head that Leo and I are going out, so she forced me to wear this repulsive thing! I'm not even sure why I'm here, he could be a stalker just saying he knows Seth or anything. I began to stand up to leave, when I noticed Leo walking towards me. I let out a deep sigh and put on a fake smile as he stopped in front of me.

"Good afternoon Raspberry." Leo said with a wide grin

"Hey." I replied not as enthusiastic as he was

"Please take a seat" Leo said as he began to sit down on the park bench.

I slowly sat next to him trying my best to keep a good and comfortable distance between us. I really don't want to be here, why did I invite him? There's no way I can really know whether or not he really knows Seth, for all I know he could just be bluffing.

"You're trying to figure out whether or not I really know Seth aren't you?" ask Leo with an awkward smile.

"H-how did you know that?" I cautiously asked

"You always were the careful type, building a wall from everybody else in the world. Only a few people are able to get close to you, and those few people you trust with your life. It's a good quality to have Raspberry, it's something that I've always admired about you." My heart was racing from his words. Why does he talk like he's known me forever? How does he know me? Why am I blushing? Leo began to laugh

"Oh I'm sorry, I've just made you so much more confused haven't I?" Leo managaed to say in between laughs. I still wasn't sure how to respond to all of this, It's been ten minutes and he hasn't made sense at all! How can I get any information at this rate?

Leo's face became serious

"Ok, let's get to business. What do you wish to know from me?" Leo asked. Ok this is my chance to get some answers, but where to start?

"How do I know you really know Seth? Tell me something that only a friend of Seth would know'" I hesitantly asked

"His nanny's name was Meredith Foster, she became his guardian after the death of his father." Leo answered.

"Wait what? His father died?" I yelled

"Yes, it was really tragic. He died when Seth was fourteen from liver damage." I sat there with in complete surprise. Seth's father had a very bad drinking problem which is probably caused his liver damage. Leo knows things that I don't even know about Seth!

"Ok, I believe you now." I said feeling kinda depressed

"Hey, how about we stop talking about Seth and we go do something fun" Leo said with a cheesy smile.

Leo, who is Leo? How does he know me so well? How can he tell when I'm over thinking things, or when I'm feeling sad? It's like he can read me like a book? Am I that predictable?


"Look Rasoberry! It's a museum of Science!!" Leo squealed almost turning red from excitement.

"Guessing you like science?" I teased. Leo looked at me almost as if I had insulted him

"I don't just "like" science, "like" is a term for a hobby or something. No science isn't a hobby for me, I LOVE science!! It's my life!" Leo responded seeming very serious now

"Well do you want to go?" I asked

"Of course I do!" Leo said skipping towards the doors of the building.

I'm not sure what Leo liked so much about Science, it was reallly boring. It's like a different language to me. I do have to admit it helped me learn a little bit about Leo.

"Look Leo, it says 'scientist for years have been trying to find a way to build a machine that will allow you to travel through time'" I said kinda amazed at the thought. Leo began to snicker.

"What's so funny?" I asked

"Oh it's nothing, I just find it cute how they think that time travel is some difficult thing, when it's actually very simple" Leo replied laughing. I wasn't sure how to respond, science seemed extremely difficult, but Leo made it sound as easy as tying your shoe or something.

"Oh well, how about we grab a movie and go to my place? I think we've done enough of what I want to do today." Leo said walking toward the exit


"Well this is my house, make yourself comfortable" Leo said sitting a bag of movies down on the table next to the door. I followed in after him feeling really awkward, I've never been in a guys house before, well besides Seth's.

"You can take a seat if you'd like" Leo said sitting down on his couch. I sat down next to him, not feeling as awkward as I did this morning.

"So what movie do you want to watch first?" Leo asked

"How about Back to the Future? I love that movie" I replied

"Back to the Future it is!" Leo said grabbing the disk

Whenever they would mention the Flux Capacitor Leo would just giggle to himself. He seems to know a lot about time travel, and he does love science. I stil don't know a lot about this guy, but yet I'm in his house watching a movie with him. It's as if we were going out or something.

"Hey Leo?" I asked


"You seem to know a lot about time travel, are you like a scientist or something?"

"You could say that, I wasn't interested in time travel till I got older, but science has always been my love. The reason I know so much about time travel is because that's what I study. I find it funny when people think that time travel is some futuristic technology, when actually the materials you need are natural resorces that anybody could get. They make it seem too hard, when it's really not." Leo said chuckling to himself

"So have you ever tried making a time machine?" Leo's face suddenly became serious

"What? Is that a secret or something?" I asked

"No, it's almost midnight, your mom is going to be mad at you for being out so late" Leo said standing up

"Oh my God she's going to freak out!" I yelled as I ran for the door


"If I go through the window, maybe she won't notice" I said to Leo

"Ok, I'll take resonsibility if she gets mad" Leo replied

"Well I had a good time, maybe tomorrow you can come over to my house" I offered

"That would be nice" Leo replied. I began to climb into my window when Leo grabbed my hand

"May I kiss your hand?" Leo asked blushing. I slowly nodded

He gently pressed his soft lips on my hand. My cheeks began to turn bright red

"Goodnight Miss Raspberry" Leo said with a charming accent

"Goodnight" I managed to say.

I quietly got into my room, and looked around. I guess mom didn't even realize I was gone. I threw myself on my bed. So many thoughts were going through my head, I'm not sure what to think anymore. Who is Leo? Why does he talk like he's known me forever? How does he know me? Am I in love with him?
