Only When I Walk Away (Under Major Editing)

Don't you only love me when I walk away?


6. Chapter 6

I'm sitting on my couch waiting for my doorbell to ring. Hurry up already! I think to myself. My legs are shaking quickly as I impatiently wait. I glance at the clock and it's 4:50. It's still early. I turn on the T.V. hoping it would calm me down when suddenly the doorbell rings. I jump up excitedly as I accidentally stub my toe on the coffee table.  


"Shit!" I curse under my breath while hopping in pain.  


I walk to the front door looking through the peephole. There he is. I can't believe how lucky I am. I put on my Converse, lacing them up. I take one last look at the mirror hanging on the wall before slowly open the door to reveal Josh with a big smile on his face.  


"Hi." He greets.  




I close the door behind me, locking it. I turn around to face Josh. He takes my hand in his as we begin to walk to his car. He opens the passenger door for me, as I get in he closes it behind me. I watch him jog around the car getting in. We both fasten our seat belts as we take off.  


"Are you ready for this trail?" Josh asks breaking the silence.  


"Definitely. I think it's pretty cool you chose a trail," I say. "It's different."  


Josh nods his head in agreement as we pull into a parking spot.  


"Here we are."  


He quickly gets out of the car, jogging to the other side to open the passenger door. I hop out landing hard on the ground. Josh takes a hold of my hand, intertwining our fingers. He pulls me to the back of his car. Opening the trunk, there's a backpack, water bottles, and snacks.  He lets go of my hands and stars filling up the backpack.  


"Can I wear it?" I ask.  


"Sure, but you don't have to. I wouldn't want you to get tired of carrying it." He replies hesitantly giving it to me.  


I quickly grab it putting it on, then posing. Josh chuckles before grabbing my hand again. We begin walking and making our way to the trail. As we make our way to the beginning of the trail, there's a warning sign telling us to watch out for snakes and other dangerous animals.  


"I'll protect you." Josh whispers in my ear , as he lightly bumps my hip with his.  


Oh gosh.  



Halfway through the trail it started to get dark. The stars shinning down on us, it was beautiful. I started to get tired so Josh took the initiative to carry me on his back.

"Am I heavy?" I whispered in his ear, laying my head on his shoulder.

"Not even."

I giggle, when suddenly he begins to sprint down the trail. My grip around his neck tightens. The wind blowing in my face feels good. I begin to laugh hysterically as he runs up hills, jumps over rocks and cracks. After awhile he starts slowing down.

"Okay, the trail is almost over. Do you wanna walk the rest?"

I nod my head against his shoulder. He carefully drops me, then grabs my hand. We continue walking and not too far away we see the end of the trail. Josh quickly picks me up bridal style as he sprints to the end of the trail, before dropping me to the ground.

"What happened to me walking the rest of the way?" I ask as we begin walking.

"Oh. I kind of wanted to show off." He replies flexing his muscles. I laugh before he grabs my hand in his.

As soon as the trail is over, we're greeted by the city. The bright shinning lights from restaurants and clubs lighting up the dark night. We continue walking down the street when Josh suddenly pulls me close to him, draping his arm around my shoulder.

"Are you hungry?" He asks looking down at me, I nod my head. His arm falls down to my waist as he leads me into a pizza shop.

We walk to the front as we begin to order. The cashier gives us our total. I quickly grab my wallet from my back pocket.

"I've got it." Josh whispers in my ear as he gives the cashier the money.The woman gives us our pizza and drinks as we make our way to a table in the corner. I begin to eat my pizza and so does Josh."What was your favorite part about tonight?" 

"Hmm, it would have to be you carrying me." I say while chuckling. "What about you?"

"Probably seeing you pick us that little snake as if it were nothing. You were fearless."

I nod my head while laughing before we finish our pizza then make our way back to his car.


It was now eight o'clock and Josh was now pulling into my drive way. He got out of the car, opening the passenger door for me. I get out as he closes the door behind me. He grabs my hand in his, intertwining our fingers as we walk to my front door. Josh begins to look down at me in the eyes. His hazel eyes are killing me.

"I had a great time, Lotus."

"Me too." I give him a soft smile.

"I hope we can do this again." His voice was low and soft. Gosh he's killing me.


Josh places a hand on my cheek softly caressing it. Suddenly he begins to lean in, slowly closing his eyes. Yes! I close my eyes as well as I feel his soft lips brush mine. He presses his lips to mine, still caressing my cheeks. After a couple of seconds he pulls away, smiling at me. I smile back before he pecks my cheeks one last time.

"Goodnight, Lotus."



I slowly turn, opening the door to my house. I walk inside and see my mom on the couch watching T.V. I plop down on the dinning room table.

"Hey Hun. How'd it go?" My mom asks as she turn the volume of the T.V. down.

"It was great." I say smiling, probably like a weirdo. She chuckles.

"Glad to hear that. What did you guys do?"

"We went on a trail, then had pizza."

"That sounds like fun!" She says with a big grin.

"It was. I enjoyed myself."

"Good." She turns back to the T.V. "Hey! How's Liam doing? I haven't spoken to him and his parents in a couple of weeks!"

"Oh, Liam he's fine."

" Y'know what we should do?" She asks. I nod my head waiting for her to finish. "We should invite them over tomorrow and have a big dinner. I can cook and it would be great to catch up. I feel bad, it's been awhile."

"Hmm...that sound fun." I say nodding my head in agreement.

"Great, I'll call them right now."

"Yeah, you do that mom. Well, I'm pretty beat. I'm going to sleep." I say getting up, making my way to the stairs.

"Alright, Hun. Goodnight."
