Alisha's pov....
I was making a grilled cheese sandwich when I heard a bang coming from my backyard. I've watched enough horror movies to know you never check out weird unexplained noises... So naturally I looked out the window. And there was Zach face first on the ground with his pant leg caught on the fence. I opened the door and ran to him. I helped him up but not before taking some pictures. "I was going to hop your fence and surprise you." He could have just knocked on my front door?! "I don't even keep my back door open." Zach looked at me then started to laugh. He was laughing at me? I should be laughing at him, he's the one with mud all over his face!

Zach's pov...
Alisha helped me up. I really wanted to surprise her. I looked up at her and her face was all scrunched up and she looked hilarious! I couldn't help but laugh. I walked right past her and headed into her kitchen. "Your sandwich is burning." All of a sudden I was pushed out of the way as Alisha dashed to the oven. She looked disappointed and dumped what I'm assuming to be a grilled cheese sandwich into the trash. She let out a huge sigh. "You know, you're one interesting person." I took it as a complement and shrugged. "Let's get you cleaned up." Alisha left the kitchen and then emerged again with a wash cloth. She rinsed it under warm water and started to wipe the mud off my face. "Ouch!" I flinched. She looked really panicked at me then turned her focus back to my face. "Yeah sorry, a bruise is starting to form. It kind of looked like you got in a fight." "Yeah I got in a fight trying to protect my girlfriend from some punk." She laughed as she wiped away the last bit of mud. "You tell yourself that." I smiled and she kissed me right beside my lips. Rude, that's not even a proper kiss. As if Alisha could read my thought "relax, you'll get a proper kiss later. God all you want from me are my lips!" She bursted out laughing, I knew it was a joke. She's a very silly person.

Alisha's pov...
I put the the wash cloth in the dirty laundry. I came back into the kitchen and he was gone. I swear to god if he scares me again. "Zach?" All of a sudden he came up behind me and wrapped his arms around my waist. "Yes?" My cheeks flushed with colour. "Never mind." Zach then turned me around and pulled out his phone. "Let me find a song, we're going to dance." He was looking for a long time but I guess he found the right song.

"Dreams like angles, they keep bad at bay. Love is the light scaring darkness away. I'm so in love with you. Make love your goal. The power of love, a force from above, cleaning my soul. Flame all burn desire, love with tongues of fire, purge the soul. Make love your goal."

We slow danced to the song but his phone died so his music stopped. "Aw what boo!" Zach seemed angry, I didn't mind. We still got to dance after all. It was romantic, even though his shirt was dirty and wet and the room smelt like burnt toast. He tried his best, that's all what matters. Zach grabbed my hand and kissed it. "Oh what a gentleman." He smirked but kept kissing me up my arm until he reached my neck. I felt him smile and then he started to nibble on my skin. I knew what he was doing, I didn't want a hickey but I didn't want to stop him either. Zach stopped and then looked at my neck, he seemed proud. "You're a dick." "Woah hey now, you could have stopped me." He tugged playfully at my hair. I raised my eyebrow. "I don't know what game your playing at but you're being silly." "Hey I'm not playing any game. I just want to spend quality time with my girl." I practically melted when he called me his girl. I shook my head and turned to walk away. Zach then grabbed me and picked me up bridal style. "Hey what are you doing?" "I'm having fun." He then started to spin. I was laughing and he was laughing. It was great till he smacked my head on the nearby wall. "Ow! Ow oh Jesus that hurt!" Me immediately put me down and hugged me. "Oh my god I'm so sorry!" My head was now throbbing. "Here um I'll go get you an ice pack!" "Don't bother I have none." He parted from the hug. "Ok hold on then." Zach ran to the kitchen and came back with a bag of ice cubes. He handed it to me and I gently placed it on my head. It stung so bad. "I'm really sorry Alisha. I didn't realize the wall was that close!" I smiled at Zach, you can't really blame him. "Nah it's cool. I smack my head all the time." I slide down the wall so that I could sit on the ground. Zach crouched beside me but then laid down on the ground and put his head in my lap. I ran my fingers through his hair with my free hand. I couldn't help but smile, the ice was already numbing the pain and Zach looked really peaceful. I sat there for a long time just running my fingers through his hair. Eventually I looked at the clock and it read 5:57pm Zach was sleeping but I needed to wake him up. "Hey Zach, wake up." I nudged him with my hand. He slowly opened his eyes and groaned. "What time is it?" "Uh almost 6 'o clock." He closed his eyes again. Was he going back to sleep? Then he slowly sat up. I didn't realize till now but both of my legs were asleep, I couldn't get back up. Zach lifted me up then sat my down on the couch then he walked to the front door. "I'm gonna go home and go to bed." "Go to bed?! You've been sleeping all day!" I don't think I'll be able to sleep tonight, this day has been so eventful, I had my first kiss and I was asked out. "Yeah I know but I usually only get an hours worth of sleep. My body is starting to catch up with my sleep schedule." "Oh ok, sweet dreams then." Zach left and I hobbled my way to the door to lock it. God my legs are so useless when they're asleep! I eventually got up the stairs and into my room. Flopping down on the bed I thought about today. I figured I would just think until I fell asleep.

A/N
Hey so I really enjoy writing this story. This is my first fanfiction I've written so that's why it tends to be scrambled with ideas. I apologize for any spelling mistakes. I know there's a couple in the previous chapters and when I reread what I've written it's hard to catch errors sometimes. 1000+ words. I'll upload another chapter tomorrow. Btw the song is called The Power Of Love by Gabrielle Aplin.
