14. Getting Started

    The next morning I got up early, not knowing what time Liam wanted to leave for the park. He called at ten to ask if I was ready. Once he pulled in, he motioned for me to get in but I motioned back for him to get out. He did, walking over to me. He was wearing a blue collar shirt with jeans and boots.

"Why don't we just walk? It's not too far."

"Oh okay." We started walking but it soon turned into a sprint. He told me he could run so I thought it would be fun to put him on the spot.

"3..2..1..GO!" He looked confused at first but only took him a second to start running with me. He caught up fast so I continued, running as fast as I could but he passed me quickly and kept running ahead.

"You're too fast, I give up." I slowed to a walk, trying to catch my breath. He also stopped and started jogging back to me.

"You're pretty fast. I didn't strike you as the running type." It was true. I didn't look like a runner but I enjoyed playing sofball and I was thinking about running track my Junior year.

"You're way faster. Do you run often?" My voice was beginning to go back to normal.

"Actually I get up and usally do morning runs a lot."

"Good to know. I was a little late asking I think." He laughed and surprised me by picking me up, giving me a piggy back ride but he only held on to one of my legs, letting the other hang down. I thought it was funny but kind of cute at the same time. He put me down when we arrived at the park. It wasn't very crowded but there were probably ten or so people walking around.

"Let's go under the gazebo, that would be a good spot. Don't you think?" I looked at it, seeing two people standing around it.

"Yeah we can sing there." It wasn't very hot so that meant less people leaving to find air conditioning. We walked under the gazebo, looking at everyone walking around. They all stared back, wondering what we planned to do.

"Want to duet?" I looked up to him and felt relieved he asked.

"What do we sing?"

"What about Grenade and we just take turns between verses?" I agreed and we began singing. We didn't plan on more people showing up but they kept coming in halfway through the song. By the time we finished there were maybe six or seven more people that walked over to the gazebo. We got really excited when everyone began clapping and asking for more.

"Any requests?", Liam asked very openly.

"Oh Holy Night!", an older woman shouted excitedly. She had shorter redish hair. After we sung that we began getting more and more requests. We sang more Bruno Mars and a few other random songs-we liked the diversity of everyone's requests.

"I don't know about you, but I'd like to hear Aubree solo", Liam announced. The crowd of what was now over twenty began cheering.

"I will if Liam sings solo right after." Liam gave me a nod and a smirk before asking for requests for me to sing.

"If I Were A Boy!", a shorter girl shouted. She looked about thirteen and she had longer brown hair. I sang it, not holding anything back. Letting the song belt out. I was always told by Jared that I was a powerhouse like Adele but I never really sang anything to prove it. I finished letting out a deep breath and listening to everyone cheer and whistle.

"Now it's Liam's turn. I personally think he should sing Chasing Cars-he loves that song. What do y'all think?" They all agreed and got very quiet before he started.

"We'll do it all, everything, on our own. We don't need, anything, or anyone. If I lay here, If I just lay here..would you lie with me and just forget the world.." I, as well as the crowd, began swaying as he continued through the whole song. When he finished I joined in with all the clapping. We had been singing for a while now so we got hungry.

"Thank you all for listening to us, we're going to go now. Have a nice day." Liam was really happy with the crowd's reaction and so was I. We had a good day so far. We went to Wendy's to eat and after that returned to the park. We were surprised to see some of the familar faces from before, still hanging around the gazebo. Maybe they wanted us to sing again? I was worn out already though and I could tell Liam was too so we just left and went to see his mom.

"Aubree it's good to see you again!" She always sounded like we hadn't seen each other in ages but that's one of the things I loved about her personality.

"It's good to see you again too!" I jogged over and hugged her like you do to a relative you've missed.

"We just went to the park and sang for a small crowd", Liam said as he handed me a bottle of water.

"Oh I bet they just loved you two."

"We kept singing for about an hour to whatever they requested", I said a bit excited. We sat down in the dining room and talked for a while. It never got boring though, Karen kept telling me little stories about Liam when he was growing up-it was adorable to see him blush and try to get her to stop. He walked me home since he wasn't staying far and once we got to the front door, he gave me a long kiss to end the day.
