4. Chapter Four "Memory Lane"

Today is the day of the concert. I got tickets for a country festival, mostly because Taylor Swift if going to be there and I would love to see her. I'm just making some finishing touches to my look for the show, like a really cute straw cowboy hat to go with the theme, a lace vest over a cream color tank, and blue jeans. "Sara, there's a boy here for you." My mother says from the living room. My mom and my dad are staying here to watch Nan while I'm at the concert with Dylan and his sisters. "One second, mom!" I yell as I walk out of my room and into the living-room to see Dylan. I wave after he does. My parents and my grandmother have never met Dylan before. He shakes Nan's hand as he says, "It's such a honor to meet you. Seriously." She smiles, obviously knowing why he's so excited to meet her since I told her everything. "Where's Abbie and Sara?" I ask. "There still getting ready. Those girls put on so much makeup that it takes them days. are you ready?" "Ready to go, sir." I say with a thumbs up, him showing his quirky side grin that makes me feel all warm inside. "We still gotta wait for the girls though--- that's why I'm just gonna stay here, hangout with you." Dylan ads. "I know." I reply, still happy to have his company, happy until I see my father gazing at me. I can't even look at him since that incident that was only a few days ago, when he admitted that he wanted to kiss me. Every time I think about that, I feel queasy and try to repress it to heal that almost scarring memory. "So, Dylan, let's take a seat so you could meet my mom and my Nan." I say, trying to change the subject in my head. "You mean your mom and dad?" He asks. "No, I meant my mom and my grandma--- I call her Nan." I say, not wanting Marlin to be involved in any of my conversations, while trying to not look suspicious. It's not like I would be the blame, it would just be weird if my mom asked what's my problem and then telling her that her husband/my dad who probably isn't my, tried to kiss me. Me and Dylan sat at the dining table where my mom and Marlin were already sitting at. "So, are you excited, Sara?" Dylan asks. "You know, this is your birthday present. I'm still excited though. It looks like a really good show." I say. "It's all just celebrities who are selfish and conceded. Trust me, I would know about them." Nan says. "How would you know?" I ask. "Okay honey, let me tell you and your little boyfriend a story." She says, making me blush as easily as I can. "When I was a young girl, I met this man, not any man, but Ray Charles. I was just walking my block and a saw the man singing on the sidewalk, trying to get some money. I gave him five dollars. And the music he was playing was so swinging that I couldn't help but to move my hips, when I did, he got up and started dancing with me as he sang.He was just visiting Kansas. Like that," She snaps her fingers. "We were in love... At least I was. We had to keep our relationship a secret though, at my time people just wouldn't like me being with him, especially the people I was close with. And when he got famous, we never even saw each other. The next thing I knew, he left me for someone who he would fit in with. I remember going to my friends house, crying on his shoulder--- you wanna know who that friend was?" I nod. "It was your grandfather. I just sobbed about Ray to him," She says with her hand at her chest. "Until he finally got up and said 'I can't take it anymore. All that guy ever gave you was heartache. Are you gonna marry me, or what?' it turned out that he was there for me all along, and if I never learned to just go with things no matter what people say, your grandfather probably would never have the guts to propose to me. But he didn't even have a ring, he wasn't even planning to propose. He just knew the moment was right when it came. I don't need to plan everything, because then it's hard to let your heart speak. When the moment comes, you'll just feel it screaming in your heart. And when that moment comes, you can't let it pass you by, you gotta recognize it and just say what you really need to say." Dylan looks at me with his soft grey eyes, and says, "I will know it."
