"Can we go to the park?" asks Brooke a little while later.
"You sure your not sick anymore?" I ask her. She shakes her head and I nod. She runs to the hallway to put on her boots and coat. I put on my Nikes and a coat. I grab my phone, keys and wallet and we walk out of the door. As soon as I close the front door Brooke starts jumping up and down.
After 10 minutes we get to the park and Brooke runs to the playground. I sit down on a bench. Suddenly I remind that I haven't send a text back to Josh.
Brooke is okay, we are in the park now x G
I put my phone away and look at Brooke playing with the swings. Someone is sitting down next to me. I look up and see Josh sitting there. He is smiling at me, which causes the butterflies to go wild again.
"Hey" he says.
"Hey" I watch him quietly.
"Uhm, do you want me to leave?" he says, a bit unsure.
"NO! No, of course not. It's just, I didn't expect you here..." I say, ashamed. He laughs a bit.
Josh and I start talking a bit and I get to know a lot of things. His parents just gor divorced, so he moved here with his mum, little sister and little brother. He is 19, but doesn't want to live alone yet (awh). He loves singing, but sucks at it, at least that was he says.
Before I know it, it's already 6;30 pm.
"I have to go home, my mum is almost done with diner." I say, while standing up. I get Brooke and the three of us start walking towards our street. Brooke is walking in the middle, saying all kind of crazy things, which makes me and Josh crack up. We stop in front of Josh his house.
"Do you two want to come in?" he asks. I shake my head.
"Our mum can come home any minute, but thanks." I smile.
"Uhm, do want to come over tonight, to watch a film or anything?" he asks me and I can see a bit of red cheeks.
"Uhm, yeah sure, what time?"
"Around 8?" he asks. I nod and we say our goodbyes. Brooke and I walk back into the house. When we hang up our coats, the front door opens again and my mum walks in. She walks into the kitchen and puts the Chinese on the table. We sit down and eat in silent.
"Mummy, George has a new boyfriend." says Brooke suddenly.
"No I don't!" I say, but I can feel my cheeks heating up. "Josh and I are just friends..."
"That guy who came here yesterday for sugar?" My mum asks. I nod. "He looks nice to me."
"We are going to watch a film tonight, is that okay?" my mum nods. I eat my diner and after that I go upstairs to shower and put on some new clothes.
If you haven't noticed yet, sometimes I really act like a teenage girl, I know. I've been told a lot of times by JJ.
When it's 8 pm I close the door behind me and walk to the opposite of the road. I knock on the door and a smiling Josh appears.
"Hey" he says and he lets me in. Say the same and he leads me to the living room. I see his mum and little brother sitting there. She gets up and walks to me.
"Hii! I'm Kathryn." she says.
"Helloww, I'm George" i say, a little bit shy. She smiles sweetly at me and Josh's brother walks to me.
"I'm Callum." he says bored.
"George" i say as nice as possible.
"Come, let's get some stuff from the kitchen and than we can go watch the film."Josh says and he pulls me to the kitchen. He grabs a big bowl and puts lots of popcorn and crisps in it. He also gets 2 glasses coca-cola and we carry everything to his room. He opens the door and we put everything on his nightstand. He walks to the tv and grabs a box full of films.
"Which one? You can choose" he says. I walk to it and I pick up a thriller. 'The woman in black' It looks kind of scary from the outside. Josh grabs it from my hand and puts it in the DVD-player. He walks back to his bed and sits down against the headbord. He pats next to him and I slowly sit down. The film starts and Josh grabs the popcorn and puts in in between us.
I don't know how, but I ended up in Josh his arms at the end of the film. The screen goes black and we stay unmoved. After a few minutes he sits up and I do the same. I look up in his eyes. Those wonderful blue eyes, they're the kind of the eyes you're drowning in right away. The room is all quiet, the only thing you can hear is the both of us breathing.
Suddenly I can see him slowly leaning in and I do the same. I close my eyes and I can feel his hot breath on my lips. Just as our lips brush over each other, my phone starts ringing. We both pull back, looking like tomatos. I quickly pull my phone out of my pocket and see that it's my mum calling.
"Mum, is something wrong?" I ask.
"Brooke had a nightmare and won't stop crying. Can you please, please sing her to sleep? She's crying for almost 45 minutes." My mum says desprate. I look at Josh who is watching me.
"I'll be right home..." I say, with a tone of guilt. I hang up and I look back at Josh. "I'm so sorry, I really have to go..."
"It's okay, I understand." he says, even though I can see he's still sad that I'm leaving. I get up and walk to the door of his room. Josh does the same. He opens the door and we walk downstairs. I open the frontdoor and look around. I smile at him and he smiles back at me. I turn around and walk to my own house. I open the frontdoor and I can already hear Brooke cry.
