8. Chapter 8

Liam's POV  

 

I woke up pretty early this morning. Yesterday evening was great. I got to visit Lotus and her family, and it was great. I decided to text her to ask if she wanted to hang out. Even though she's head over heels for someone else, I'm hoping I can slowly change her mind.   

 

- Are you doing anything today? I was hoping we could do something today :)  

 

I throw my phone on my bed, and get up. I pace around the room, back and forth, anxiously waiting for her to reply. My phone lights up and I excitedly rush to it, only for my smile to turn into a frown.   

 

-I'm sorry, I have a date today :/   

 

I lock my phone, angrily throwing it back on the bed.  So is this how it's going to be from now on? Are we going to be able to hang out, or is she always going to be busy with...him? I angrily plop down in my bed, burying my face in my pillows.   

 

Lotus' POV  

 

After texting Liam back, I decided to start getting ready. Josh was going to be here at two, so I had a couple of hours to get ready. I rush to my closet pulling out my outfit, floral shorts and a white tank top. I pull out a pair of sandals and throw everything on my bed. I get in the shower, and after an hour I get out. I get changed and decide to leave my hair down. I put on my sandals and head to my bathroom. I decide to wear makeup, but only keep it to a minimal. I apply lip gloss and mascara, before I leave the bathroom. I check my phone and it's 1:30. I had thirty minutes left. I decided to call Liam and ask if he wanted to do something after, I felt pretty back for blowing him off.   

 

"Hello?" He croaked through the phone.   

 

"Hey, I was wondering if maybe you wanted to do something later. Josh said we would be back by around six of seven."  

 

"I'm not feeling too good." Liam said slowly through the phone.   

 

"Alright well, I'll see you later. I hope you feel better."  

 

After my sentence there was a click on the phone. I looked at my phone confused. Liam had hung up on me, he didn't even say bye. I shrugged my shoulders before walking downstairs; I decided to watch T.V. in the meantime, while I waited for Josh. My parents came downstairs, my dad sat at the dinning room table, while my mom began making lunch.   

 

"Another date, Hun?" My dad asks while looking down the newspaper.   

 

"Yeah. At two."   

 

My dad nods his head while flipping through the pages in the newspaper. My parents begin eating their lunch before standing up and heading to the door.   

 

"We're going out with Liam's parents! Will you be alright?"  My mom asks, her hand on the door knob. Eager to leave me?  

 

"Yeah, I'll be gone anyways."   

 

"Alright love, be careful." My dad says as they both leave.   

 

A couple of minutes later my doorbell rings. I eagerly stand up and rush upstairs grabbing my purse. I look in the mirror before running downstairs. I make my way to the door and open it, to reveal a grinning Josh.   

 

"Hey." Josh greets pulling me into a tight hug. "You look great."   

 

"Thanks."  

 

Josh grabs my hand leading me to his car. He opens the door for me and I get in. He closes it behind me and jogs around the car to his side and gets in. We buckle up and he pulls out of my driveway and begins driving down the street.   

 

"So, what are we doing today?'' I ask looking at him. Josh glances at me then back at the road.  

 

"We're going to Belmont Park."  My jaw drops as my eyes widen. I look at him shocked.   

 

"Are you serious?" I ask smiling.  

 

Josh nods his head. Belmont Park is an amusement park. It wasn't big, actually it was quite small. Only having a couple of rides and a big roller coaster, lots of shops and it was right next to the beach. I guess you could say it was a boardwalk.   

 

"I love Belmont Park! I haven't been in awhile." I say excitedly.   

 

"Good. We're going to have fun today." Josh grabs my hand in his squeezing it lightly.

Josh pulls into a parking spot before getting out. He jogs to my side opening the door, and closing it behind  me. He grabs my hand in his, intertwining our fingers. We walk in and wait in line to buy our wristbands to ride the rides.  

 

"Two wristbands please." Josh says.   

 

Once again I quickly pull out my wallet, only to have Josh snatch it out of my hand. He grabbed my purse and dropped it back in there.   

 

"You don't have to pay, Lotus." Josh chuckles.  

 

My cheeks tinge in embarrassment. Josh gives the cashier the money, and she gives us our wristbands.   

 

"Let me see your right hand." Josh commands. I give him my hand and he puts the wristband on. I reciprocate his actions putting on the wristband. I intertwine our fingers as we start walking. "What do you want to do first?"  

 

I shrug my shoulders looking around. I find a shop that catches my attention. I point to the shop all the way at the end of the boardwalk. We begin walking in. It was sort of a surfer shop. It was pretty cool.  

 

"Do you want to ride the roller coaster?" I ask bumping my hip with his.   

 

"You aren't scared?" Josh asks surprised.   

 

"No, roller coasters are my life!"   

 

Josh chuckles as he pulls me to the line. Luckily it wasn't long. We sit at the very last cart, since it's the fastest.   

 

"To be honest, I'm kind of scared." Josh says grabbing my hand.  

 

"Aw, why?"  

 

"It's a wooden roller coaster! What if it breaks?!"   

 

I laugh pinching his cheek.  

 

"It won't." I begin. "I promise." I say raising a hand.   

 

I pull down the seat belt. The ride slowly starts, and Josh's grip on my hand tightens. The ride enters a tunnel and it's pitch black. Then, light appears as we exit the tunnel. We slowly start going up the first hill.   

 

"I don't want to ride this anymore." Josh says worriedly.   

 

"It's a little too late for that."  

 

"I'm going to die." Josh says.  

 

"No you're not I...PROMISE!" I yell out the last part as we start going down the hill.  

 

The ride is extremely fast, and it's jerking us back and forth. Josh his holding my hand so tight, I feel like it's going to fall off.  

 

"Mommy!" He yells at the top of his lungs.  

 

"She can't help you now!"

 

 We go down another hill and Josh is yelling extremely loud. Suddenly the ride starts slowing down, and it's finally come to an end. We step out of the cart and Josh is shaking. We walk down the stairs as we exit the ride.   

 

"Are you alright?" I ask while laying a hand on his back.  

 

"Yeah, I'm fine."  

 

I can't help but laugh, he gives me a sad look. I quickly pull him into a hug, laying my head on his chest. I feel his arms wrap around me, pulling me closer.  

 

"Can we get something to eat? I'm feeling queasy." Josh says through the hug.   

 

"Of course."

Josh and I have ridden almost every ride. We were now on the beach part of the boardwalk. I was tempted to go in and swim and let the waves crash into me, but unfortunately I didn't have my bathing suit. Poo. Josh and I were in deep enough to get our feet wet. We were watching surfers take on the waves. My hand was intertwined with Josh as we kicked water back and forth at each other.   

 

"This is probably my favorite part of today." He says looking down at me. His hazel eyes are mesmerizing.   

 

"Me too."  

 

Josh pulls me closer to him, he sets his hands on my waist pulling me into his, so that there's no space. He slowly leans in, shutting his eyes. I wrap my arms around the back of his neck, pulling him closer to me. His lips press against mine. Fitting together perfectly. After a couple of moments he pulls away and smiles at me.

 

"Let's go. It's starting to get a bit chilly."  

 

He holds onto me by the waist as we make our way back to his car.

We pull into my driveway and Josh gets out of the car opening my door. I hop out and he closes the door behind me. He holds onto me by the waist. We get in front of my door as we turn to face each other.  

 

"Lotus, I had fun today. And I just want you to know that I really like you." He stares into my eyes deeply.   

 

"Wow. I really like you too." He leans in and gives me a peck on the lips. I smile as he starts to walk away. I wave him goodbye as he blows me a kiss.
