I stepped out of the shower with water dripping onto the tiled floor. My phone vibrated. I looked and it was a text from David.
David: I had so much fun today :) <3
Alina: So did I! <3
David: what's up?
Alina: just got out of the shower :)
David: oh? I wish I could've joined :P
I had to set my phone down for a minute. I could feel my face getting flustered. I dried my hair a little bit and put on my pajamas.
Alina: too late now :P
David: I bet your body is really sexy...
Alina: well thank you :P
David: can I see..?
I put my phone down again, so I could recollect myself.
Alina: see what?
David: a picture of you... in a bikini
I scrolled through my phone to the summer and found a picture of me in a bikini when I went to the Dominican Republic over the summer. I hit send and then lightly tossed my phone on my bed. I wasn't ready to see his reply yet. I decided to moisturize and brush my hair.
David: wow, you're absolutely beautiful
Alina: thank you :)
David: seriously.. I'd tap that ;)
David: seriously though... what's the farthest you've gone with a guy
Alina: third base.
David: oh yeah? ;) what does that mean
Alina: I'm tired and don't want to talk about this right now, goodnight
I put my phone away for the night. The thought of talking about my past experiences gave me major anxiety.
David looked at me and asked "Are you Alright?"
"Yeah," I replied, "why wouldn't I be?"
"I don't know.. you went to bed pretty early last night."
"Sorry, I wasn't feeling so good," I said.
"It's okay, I'm sorry if I made you uncomfortable."
We listened to "You Don't Own Me" until we arrived. Before I could open the door, David grabbed my hand.
"Hey, if you ever need anything during school, please let me know and I will come see you. I know our schedules are opposite and we don't get to see each other much at school but I just want you to know that I'm here."
I smiled, "thank you, that really means a lot."
I felt more safe now that he said that.
For once, instead of doing assignments or listening to a lecture, we watched a movie in health class. Drake texted me for some reason, even though he was sitting right next to me.
Drake: we're watching Netflix but too bad we aren't alone
Drake: Netflix and chill lol
Alina: what about it
Drake: wanna Netflix and chill sometime?
Alina: what do you mean by chill exactly?
