I absolutely couldn't believe that I had went to Paris with my boyfriend who gave me a promise ring! I am ready to be back home though. When I went back home we unpacked everything and then we was going to go into town and eat at the diner. I would much rather go into the city and eat at a restaurant.
Later that evening we went and ate at the diner like mom and dad said we would. I got a cheeseburger and I asked mom if Luke could come and pick me up because the twins weren't done eating. So he came and picked me up and we went back to his house.
In the truck he said, "Hey babe when we get back to the house do you want to take a trail ride? I have been missing it."
"Sure, I want to go on a short one though not long."
"Ok." Then he took my hand in his.
When we got to his house we saddled up and started to take off. Luke said, "Hey listen I got a paper about this rodeo thing in Texas. I won't go if you don't want me too. You get to just practice with rodeo, barrel racing, and just have fun. Just say the word and I won't go."
"Well when is this?"
"A week away I have to call them and tell them yes or no."
"How long will you be gone?"
"The rest of the summer till school starts. Like I said I won't go if you don't want me too."
"Listen I want to be here for you but that is a long time without seeing you and we probably won't get to talk that much. So as hard as it is for me to say this." Luke's head hung down and I said, "You can go."
Luke's eyes met mine and smiled then kissed me and said, "I promise from here on out till I leave we will be together. I promise that I will call you every day. Thank you so much babe you have no idea how much this means to me."
I made my stupid fake smile and said,"Well I am happy, that you are happy.Great! Think, you just got back from somewhere and now your leaving again."
"I know it's crazy! Thank you so much!"
"Your welcome. I'm kind of glad that we are back home."
That evening I told mom what Luke was doing and that we was going to talk everyday. I am definitely glad that we are home. I really couldn't believe that I told Luke that it was fine that he was going to be gone. I was really not happy and already sad, but I knew that he couldn't find out or he probably wouldn't go. So I just went to bed that night and wondered what I would do this summer without him.
