I'm super excited to see Emily today. She'll be over in about 20 minutes so I've just been fixing up my place and making sure everything was perfect. I'm a little nervous but I think she'll like the surprise.
The doorbell rang making me jump a little. I quickly got to the door and opened it. Emily looked up at me with a smile. She looked really pretty. Her hair was down and it was wavy. And she was wearing a dress which was different but she still looked great.
"Hey." I grinned at her and pulled her into my house.
"So what's that surprise you were talking about yesterday?" She asks curiously.
"Don't worry, I'll tell you later. Anyways, I got some movies we could watch. Do you wanna pick?"
She says okay and I lead her to the living room. I show her the DVDs and she picks Spider-Man.
I give her a look. "You like Spider-Man?"
She nods while popping the disc into the player. "He's my favourite super hero."
We cuddle in the blanks as the movie plays. Emily has her head resting on my chest.
After the movie is over I tell Emily I'd be right back. I got to my room and grabbed my acoustic guitar. I walked back into the living room to see Emily playing on her phone. When she finally noticed me she put her phone away and looked at me intently.
"I wanted to play you something," I take a seat on the couch and place the guitar on my lap.
"And I wanted to apologize for the last song I sang to you. It wasn't actually about you but it matched the situation and I was mad so I used it to my advantage."
"I know. You had every right."
She mumbles. I sigh before strumming a little. "You'll like this one."
We’re taking the long way home
Taking the long way home
Take me back to the middle of nowhere
Back to the place only you and I share
Remember all the memories?
The fireflies and make-believe
Kicking back in the old school yard
Singing songs on our guitars
This is our reality
Crazy stupid, you and me
We know this is the way it’s supposed to be
So we’re taking the long way home
'Cause I don’t wanna be wasting my time alone
I wanna get lost and drive forever with you,
Talkin' bout nothing, yeah, whatever, baby
So we’re taking the long way home tonight
I stopped playing and looked down at Emily. She was smiling a little. "That was beautiful Luke. Thank you."
I placed my guitar on the couch and sat down beside her.
"You're beautiful. I love you Emily. I can't see us in any other way. I love how you smile at me. I love that you play with your fingers when you're nervous. I love that you don't care what others think of you because you know that you're good enough."
"I care about what you think about me." She says with a grin.
"You do?" I ask shocked.
She shrugs. "Well of course I do. I've always have."
"You don't have to think like that. I think you're perfect just the way you are."
She laughs. "Thank you Luke. I'm having a great time with you."
