7. Chapter Seven

Chapter 7

Tyler had gotten me home right on time, which I guess one extra points for him by Alex, showing them he could take care more than just her daughter.

    We’d planned that he was going to pick me up around noon tomorrow so he could take me a place that he loved.

    He didn’t tell me the name of the place though. So, I was now sitting in my living room, my backpack packed with a few things, waiting for him. I heard a car turn off on the street. I jumped up, and went to the window.

    “He’s here!” I called, and started to open the door.

    “Call when you’re on your way back!” Elliot called at the top of the stairs. “Don’t stay out too late!”

    “Okay.” I called back and shut the door behind me. Tyler was just getting out of the car. He got out, and walked to the passengers said.

    “Someone’s eager,” He joked, and opened the door for me. I put the bag in the back and sat in the seat. He closed the door and quickly hoped into the driver’s side.

    “Where are we headed?” I asked.

    “Still not telling, but you’ll love it.” I could hear the promise in his voice.

    We sat in silence as he drove down the road, and I saw a sign City Hall, and he turned there.

    “We’re going to City Hall? I—”

    “We’re not going to City Hall. We’re just parking here.” He grinned like it was a private joke.

    “Are we aloud?” I ask, getting kind of worried that he’ll get in trouble.

    He shook his head. “The mayor and I go way back.” I gave him a questioning look, so he added, “The mayor is best friends with my parents, and he knows that I love the trail, so he said I could park here when I want.” He shrugged like it was nothing.

    He got out, and opened the truck and took out a small cooler, and a duffle bag. He smiled as I got my backpack out of the backseat. He closed the driver’s door and locked it and started for the trail that was just a few metres away.

    “Where does this lead?” I ask as we hit the trail.

    “Just a place I like to escape to sometimes.” He said, and grabbed my hand with his free one, and pulled me faster down the trail.

    “Come on.” He grinned.



He stopped at a tree. I’m not kidding, he just stopped at this one tree.

    “What? Something out of place?” I joke.

    “Nope. We’re almost there, just follow me.” He stepped around the tree and moved some bushes apart and started to walk down homemade pathway.

    “This is so exciting. I feel so adventurous.” I whispered.

    Tyler laughed, then he stopped in front of a few more bushes. He didn’t let go of my hand, and smiled at me. “You ready?” He asks.

    I nod and he pushes it away the bushed, showing a little shack. I give him a confused look, and he just laughed.

    “Come in there, and I’ll give you the story.”



We settled in the nice little room. There was a small table, and a couple of chairs. Tyler took out a blanket and laid them on the chairs and moved the small table between us. He took out two waters from the cooler and set them on the table.

    He took a sip and put it on the table as I said, “Tell me about this place.”

    He smiled. “Since I’ve been a kid, I’ve always loved going on trials and just being with nature, so one day I discovered a little path and being a curious kid, I followed it, and ended here. So, over the years I’ve been coming back, fixing it up, and now it’s just my getaway.”

    “Have you brought someone here before?” I ask and take a sip of my water.

    He shook his head. “No, my Mom doesn’t understand why I’m on a trail for hours.”

    I laugh and put the water on the table.

    We sit in silence, only birds chirping around us. Then Tyler clears his throat. “Where’s the one place that you love to go to just to get away?” He asks.

    “I’d say the little pond near my house. It’s so quiet and calm there, that it just relaxes me completely”

    Suddenly Tyler reached across the table and took my hand. “You have such nice eyes.” He says.

    I blushed. “And, you’re so cute when you blush.” He said, which made me blush deeper.

    “Oh, I brought something.” Tyler said and let go of my hand. I missed it immediately He got up, and went over to his duffle bag and pulled out a game.

    He slapped the travel bag on the table. I raised an eyebrow as I read Scrabble. “Seriously?” I ask.

    He nods. “Some people call me the Word Man.”

    I laugh and reach for the game to set it up. “We’ll see about that.”



“Damn it!” I said and slapped a hand on the table. “That’s even a word.”

    He peered the board. “Liripipe is a word.”

    “What does it mean then?” I crossed my arms over my chest and raised an eyebrow at him.

    He laughed thinking this was all amusing, “The long tail of a hood medieval costumes.”

    I glared at him. “Okay, fine, you get that one.”

    He grinned, pale green eyes gleaming. I totalled the score and then crumpled it. “That’s not fair. Letting the girl is the gentlemanly thing to do.”

    Tyler shook his head, smiling. “Only if it doesn’t jeopardize my rep as the Word Man.”  

    I throw an L at him. “That’s still not fair.”

    He picked the L off his chest and put it near my face. “What did this L ever do to you?” He asked.

    “It made me lose.” I grinned.

    He stuck out his hand. “Truce?” He asked.

    I giggled and stuck out my hand and we shook. “Truce.”

    Then he smiled evilly. “Now for my part of the deal.”

    Then in an instant his lips were on mine and I melted. The table was in our way, so I moved it out of the way and moved closer him. Then he moved me to his lap, without breaking the kiss.

    His lips were like before, warm, but this time they tasted like mint and sun. He still smelt of that delicious mint. Tyler moved a hand from my cheek to put it under my shirt, and rubbed my side.

    My arms went to neck, and I ran a hand through his hair. I deepened the kiss. His hand other hand went to my waist. I wanted to be closer to him. Then I heard something outside and I jumped.

    Tyler pulled me back to him. “It was nothing.” He soothed.

    I breathed to calm my racing heart.

    Then I heard a ring from a cell phone and I saw mine was lighting up. I kissed his cheek and went to answer it.

    It was Abby.

    I clicked the connect button. “Hey!” I said.

    “Hey, where are you? Aiden, Paisley and I are trying to find you. We were wondering what you guys wanted to do for a late lunch.” Abby said.

    “What time is it?” I ask.

    “Around three.”

    We’ve been here for three hours?

    “Um, one second.” I looked at Tyler and covered the mouth piece.

    “They want to see if we want to have a late lunch.” I told him.

    He thought for a second then sighed. He nodded. I put the phone back to my ear. “Sure. Give up thirty. We’ll meet at the boardwalk.”

    “Okay, See you soon.” She said and I hung up.

    I looked at Tyler and he was already standing up to get ready to leave. I walked to him and put a hand on his shoulder.

    “It’s going to take fifteen minutes to back, I think, and I told her to give us thirty.”

    He smiled and pull me to him, “I like the way you think.”


We finally unhooked us from each other long enough to get ready and get back to town. I laced my fingers with his as we drove back to town. I smiled at him, and kissed his cheek.

    “We’ll get time alone soon enough.”
