18. All the minigames
I walk into my room around an hour later. I find Karoline lying on my bed, sleeping with a book on her face. She must have been reading before she drifted off. She is only wearing a towel and underwear. Don’t get me wrong- I’m not a creep, her towel has just moved so I can see the rim of her panties. I walk over to her and lift the book off of her face. She wakes up because of the light, which is suddenly running to her eyes, when the book isn’t there to cover them. I look down at her, peck her lips and say; “Was your sleep any good?” She smiles at me slides the towel down so it’s covering her pants entirely. “It was good,” she smiles. She gets up from the bed and walks to a pile of clothes. She picks them up and puts them on the table with my computer on it. I just watch her from the bed. She lets the towel fall and she is standing before me only in her pants. Her back is turned and she picks up a black lace bra and puts it on. Then she puts on the clothes she was wearing earlier.
I walk over to her and put my hands around her waist and put my chin on her right shoulder. “Do you remember our dinner plans tonight?” she asks me with a tiny giggle. “Of course I do biggums. I would never forget anything I ever planned with you.” I answer. As I stand there I remember what Ty said to me earlier - that I should tell her how I feel. She is only 15 and I’m 19 though. Does she even know that I’m this old? How do I tell her, about her getting the wrong image? What do I say, if she thinks that I think she is too young? I don’t though - age is just a number. “Should I wear something fancy?” she asks and makes me break out of my deep thoughts. She is now facing me and I look into her blue eyes. She stands a bit out, with her very blue eyes and her very ginger hair. I don’t think I’ve ever seen anyone this ginger before and I smile by the thought. “Depends on how fancy, you think fancy is,” I answer her. She walks over to her bag an pulls out a striped black and white dress. The dress isn’t just black and white striped; over the colors it has a layer of lace. It’s neck goes all the way up and doesn’t show any cleavage. The sleeves are like a tops and it has I thin black ribbon at the waist. It’s pretty long and looks like it’s going to stop a bit over her knees. “It is beautiful biggums!” I exclaim. “Thanks honey,” she answers. “I don’t know whether to wear it tonight or to save it for tomorrow,” she looks at me with a puzzled look. “I think you should wear this one tomorrow and then just some jeans tonight,” I tell her. She nods in agreement.
“So what do you want to do today?” I ask her. “I don’t really know… Maybe you could teach me some more about video making?” she asks. “Sure,” I answer with a smile and walk over to my desk.
I drag a chair over besides Mitch and get my computer. I turn it on and Mitch does the same with his. He shows me a bit of things, but we just end up playing some mini-games. It feels like he beats me a million times at Time Bomb, but I absolutely destroy him in Draw My Thing. We also play a bit of Survival Games and I feel like I’m getting better. A few hours pass while we are playing and before we know of it we’ve missed lunch and it’s probably time to get ready to go on our date.
