I stood on her porch waiting for her to come out. It was only our second date, yet I felt like I already knew everything about her.
I brought the only dark blue azalea I could find. I was twirling it back in forth in between my finger and thumb.
"Hey." The door swung open and there she was. Tall, dirty blonde hair, bright blue eyes, just positively lovely.
"Uh, hi." I tried to turn my eyes away, focus on something else, but they led right back to her. "I brought this." I had almost forgot about the flower in my hand.
"Thank you." She took it out of my hand. Twirling it like I had before setting on a rack right inside the door. "My favorite flower, and favorite color. You really have been paying attention." She shut the door behind us and then kissed my cheek.
"So how have you been?" I asked as we walked to my car.
"You should know, calling every five minutes." She was joking I know. She giggled, which made me smile.
"I don't call every five minutes." I opened the car door for her.
"Yes you do." She was looking at me with wide eyes. I thought for a moment, just looking into her eyes, then shook my head and shut the car door. I got in the car and we headed off to eat.
"So, you didn't answer my question, how've you been?" I took a sip of my drink. My mouth seemed extra dry tonight.
"I've been good Liam. How about you?" She said, as she watched people throughout the restaurant.
"Great love. I'm thinking of auditioning for x-factor." I didn't want to tell her, because I didn't want her to be there if I did decide to audition. She didn't even know I could sing.
"You can sing? How good are you?" Her eyes went from everyone, straight to me. They looked shocked too.
"Yeah. I probably should've said that before." I smiled, and so did she.
"Can I hear you sing?" She raised her eyebrows.
"Not here." I said and gestured to all the people sitting around us.
"So? If you went on x-factor you'd be on in front of millions of people." She made a good point, but I still did not want to sing in front of these people.
"I know..... I just....." I didn't know how to put it.
"Ok, just wait till we get back to my place then." She took my hand.
"Can I get you two anything else?" The waitress was standing at our table, ready to grab her pen and pad.
"No." We said at the same time. Then we looked at each other.
"No thank you though. I'm just about full." I said looking at my almost empty plate.
"And how about you?" The waitress looked at Kayla.
"Oh no, I'm so stuffed. Thank you." Kayla looked at her plate, which was empty.
"Ok. I'll just move these out of your way. Then get the bill here as soon as I can." The waitress picked up our plates and walked away.
"She likes you. She got jealous, that's why she came over here." Kayla looked at me, then behind me, where the waitress had gone.
"What do you mean?" I looked back, and the waitress was looking at me. She winked. "Uh. Now I see what you mean." I turned back around. "Don't worry about it love." I winked at Kayla.
"I'm not worried for me, I'm worried for you." She was making no sense.
"Why?" I looked back to see the waitress walking our way. "Hurry, do something." I looked at Kayla, and she was looking me straight in the eye. I have to admit, I was scared. That first kiss was something....
I popped straight up in bed, cold sweats, head ache, heart racing. Why did I have that dream? I turned on my light, and was reaching for my phone to call someone. It started ringing though.
"Kayla, what is it?" I sounded more worried than I should have.
"I just had a dream....." She trailed off.
"Me too." I confessed.
