24. Scooby Doo

When we go out of the restaurant, we walk across the street to a sightseeing bus. I take off my sunglasses because it's nine thirty and dark. Liam lets me sit on the top of the double decker bus and gives me the window seat. We plug in the headphones they gave us into the recording system in front of us. A forced British accent starts speaking, "This is the Thames River. If was originally pronounced with the th, but blah, blah, blah."
I start to zone out. I remember this exact speech and it sounds more like a history lesson if you ask me. I look at Liam and he's looking at me. I smile, I have no idea what else to do. We are only on this bus so when it stops at Buckingham Palace, we can get off and walk to the hotel. The things about Brits is most of them know how to give someone their space and privacy. American girls will just march right up to you and cling on. 
"Next stop is Buckingham Palace," a voice says. I think I just started to breath again. I like history in school but never ever over break, or anytime outside school. Liam and I stand up as we go to the lower level of the bus. Once the bus halts, we walk out hand in hand. I pull my beanie over my face completely and I show it to Li. 
"Beautiful, you are hiding your face, why hide one of the things that make you look so fit?" I blush at what he says to me. Fit is British slang for pretty. Sorry, I sound really dumb. When we get back to the hotel, I plop myself down on the couch. I feel as if I'm going to explode. I feel like I have a major migraine and my limbs feel like door hinges. Li goes into the other room and comes out with ice cream and another box. He sits next to me, takes the lid off the top of the Cookie Dough ice cream, and hands me a spoon. Even though it's winter, I'm glad I get the icy goodness, "Open it."
I do as I'm told and I open the large box. It isn't as large as the first one at Lou's party, but I'm still afraid of what's inside it. I open the cardboard box and what's in it? Dog food. An adorable shih tzu came trotting in. It was dark brown and white with small floppy ears. 
"This is your dog, Scooby Doo," Li says scratching him behind his fluffy ears. 
"Mine? All mine? A-and Scooby Doo…what a great name!" I say still in shock. 
"Yes yours, all yours. And yes, Scooby Doo. That was one of my favorite cartoons growing up and I thought a dog would make a good edition to the Payne-Brown family. You keep the dog while I'm on tour so you can think of me," he says with a wink. I pick up Scooby Doo and I place him in my lap. His eyes are big and brown, kind of like Liam's. His tail wags back and worth, what an energetic dog. 
"Thank you so much," I say somehow without a stutter this time. 

I wake up in bed like a princess again. I rub my eyes trying to figure out wether or not this is a dream. Scooby Doo is at the foot of my bed sound asleep. I hear soft snores coming from the Living Room area, so that can only mean one thing, Liam's asleep on the couch. I roll over onto my other side and on the night table, there's my clothes picked out with a Post-It:

I picked out your clothes Princess Kady because we're going on a date that needs a specific kind of clothes to be worn. I'll be up by eight. 
-Liam and Scooby Doo

I smile involuntarily, knowing I have the most perfect boyfriend ever. Li leaves out a green Manhattan College t-shirt, an athletic jacket, black leggings, and sneakers. Someone's been going through my luggage. I sigh as I put on the clothes. I straighten my hair and I put it into a high ponytail. I look like I belong at a marathon or someone who works out every second of the day. I put a pure white Claire's bow I got from Liam for Christmas in my hair to spice it up a bit. I put on my K necklace and ring. When I get back to the living area, Liam is there in his clothes, watching Wipeout. 
"Morning," I say preparing us both tea. I watch the TV as the water heats up in the microwave. When the water is heated, I pour it into two mugs with tea bags in them. I run my manicured finger over the design in the mug. The mugs read Keep Calm and Carry On and the letters stick out. I go over to the couch and I hand Li one of the mugs. He's laughing at someone who just fell into a big pit of mud. I don't get it, he thinks Wipeout is fine where they purposely hurt people for better ratings, but hates American football where people only get hurt by mistake. He takes a plain coaster and puts it underneath his tea. 
"Where …are we going t-today?" I ask. Darn it, I thought my stutter just disappeared like yesterday. 
"It's a surprise," he says. When we finish breakfast downstairs, we go outside and Li signals for a cab. A cab stops in front of us almost as soon as we walk out of the hotel. When we get in, Liam whispers where we're going to the driver. He makes me plug my ears when he does so, "That'll be 25 pounds sir, that is a long drive."
Liam hands him a twenty and a five pound bills. 
"At least we are not walking," Liam says to me. I nod my head, my legs may fall off any second. After about half an hour, we pull up to a Go Kart track. Oh I'm going to crush Liam at this, I'm a pro. 

We walk out of the track laughing our heads off. I crushed Liam, not surprisingly. Because he lost, he had to pay for the food and give me $15 because he lost, three times. 
"Oh, you just got lucky there Brown," he says to me. 
"There's no s-such thing…as luck," I say. 
"Well, I know for a fact luck is real. Do you want to know how I know luck is real? Because I'm so lucky to have ever met you, let alone be my girlfriend."
