“So….” Derek said trying to find a new topic to talk about.
I chuckled, “We’ve been talking for about 2 hours. About time we had nothing to talk about.”
“Whoah. I think your friends blabber mouth is contagious.” He said in mock shock and fear.
“Stick with me and you’ll learn to be immune.” I told him teasingly.
“I’d still stick with you either ways.” He smiled and I gladly returned it.
“I think I should be getting back already.” I yawned as I checked my phone to see that it was already past midnight.
“You want me to give you a ride back home?” He offered.
“I’d love to….but-.” I looked at him sheepishly as I dug my feet deeper into the sand.
“But…?” He asked,
“But I brought my car with me and I don’t think it’ll be all that happy with me if I just abandon it here.” I shrugged with a ‘what-can-you-do’ look.
“Do you think you can ask that friend of yours if she could take your car and drive it home with her instead?” He asked hopefully.
“You mean Madison?” I raised an eyebrow at him.
“Uh…yeah. I think that’s her.” He told me looking embarrassed that he forgot her name.
“I don’t think she’ll be too happy to find out that you’ve already forgotten her name.” I laughed.
“Please don’t tell her.” He pleaded with wide eyes which held a hint of fear. Oh he should be afraid alright, Mady is never pleased to find out that a hot guy she totally digs forgets something as simple as her name.
“I won’t.” I smiled at him reassuringly.
He breathed in relief as I tried to hold in another laugh.
“C’mon, I’ll just give my keys to Mady and we can go.” I stood up and started to look for Mady through the crowd.
“Hey Mady!” I waved to get her attention as I spotted her at the nearby bar stand.
“Hey, what’s up?” She asked as she walked towards me.
“Do you think you could take my car home for me?” I asked with my best puppy eyes.
“Sure.” She said anxiously. Works every time. I grinned to myself.
“Thanks Mads!” I told her sincerely as I turned to leave.
“Nah-ah-ah!” She sang as she grabbed my arms preventing me from leaving. I groaned. So close.
“Aw c’mon Mads. I’ve got to go.” I told her impatiently.
“Not until you tell me who the lucky guy is taking you home.” She grinned at me mischievously.
“No.” I told her simply.
“Then I won’t drive your baby home.” She declared as she threw my keys back at me.
“Oh yes you will.” I defended as I threw them back to her.
“What’s taking so long Kaye Kaye?” Derek cut her off as he stood next to me.
Mady gave me a knowing smile “So, you’re taking her home huh..?” She directed to Derek.
“Yeah….” He asked as he looked at me unsurely.
Mady’s’ grin became even wider. If that was even possible.
“Okay. So I guess I’ll be driving your car home Kayce?” She asked as she continued grinning. I swear, if she doesn’t take that grin off her face, it’s bound to fall off.
“Uhm, yeah. That’s what I asked you…” I said, not really sure where this was going.
“Great! So, I’ll see you on tomorrow Kayce! I’ll leave your car on your drive and pick you up on Monday for the first day of school.” She said before she ran off. If I didn’t know any better, Id assume she was trying to give us some more ‘alone time’. I sighed. I don’t think I’ll ever understand that girl.
“Ready?” Derek asked.
“Yep” I said while popping the ‘p’ as he led me to his car.
He held the door open for me as I got in and we drove off a few seconds later.
Something I noticed, you’re journey’s always seem to take longer on the way there than on the way back. For example, I remember reading that it took the girls half an hour to get to the party, but it only takes them a couple of minutes to get back. Just thought I’d bring your attention to that J
The car ride home was silent but comfortable. There’s just something about him that makes me feel so relaxed and cool whenever we’re together. I’m so glad things are back to normal or else I wouldn’t have known what I was missing.
We reached my drive way after a few minutes and he insisted on escorting me to the front door, which I couldn’t say no to.
“I really had fun tonight. Thanks for everything Derek.” I smiled at him thankfully as we reached the first steps of the porch.
He didn’t reply; he just stood there as if he was debating about something in his head as he stared at me.
“Derek?” I asked in concern for his lack of response. He seemed to snap out of it after a few seconds as he started walking closer to me, removing all the space between us. Every step he took seemed torturously long and I couldn’t even bring myself to figure out why I liked the feeling of him being so close to me. His stare grew more and more intense as the few inches of space between us were removed.
He took my face in his palms as he leaned forward and placed his lips on mine. I stood there, frozen in shock as his lips lightly brushed mine. I didn’t respond at first, not knowing what to do or even how this was happening, but all the questions died down in my head as the taste of his lips on mine made me weak at the knees. I started to respond and I felt him smile through the kiss.
He let go too soon and pressed his forehead against mine as we both breathed heavily
“I had a lot of fun tonight too.”
Then he drove off, leaving me there dumbfounded with nothing but the taste of him on my lips and a lot of questions running through my head to keep me awake the whole night.
