Brrr. My phone vibrated in my back pocket, and I reached to check who it was. I bent my lips into a slight smile.
heyyyyy handsome ;) Want to cum over?
I sighed and tapped my message:
Sure baby. See u there :D
I pulled on my leather jacket and red Vans and headed out the door. It wasn't like anyone would miss me anyway, because no one was home. In 10 mins I pulled my car into Talia's driveway and walked quietly into her living room, where she and the rest of my friends (2 males and 1 female, not including Talia)were hanging out.
Her back was facing me, so I motioned to my boys not to say hi or tell her I was here. When I got the OK, I snuck up behind Talia, wrapped my arms around her waist and lifted her into the air. She started squealing like a little kid and then giggled. After I put her down, I hugged her and said, "Hey baby!"
We linked hands and she pressed her lips to my cheek. I grabbed a can of Pepsi from the table and sat next to her in the couch, put my arm around her, and let everyone else's voices zone out as I stared at my baby girl's perfect features.
Nude pink lips, crystal blue eyes, tan skin, and dark brown hair. She was of mixed race, 1/2 Indian, 1/4 Jamiacan, and 1/4 German. I shook myself out of my thoughts and joined in on the fun. After a game of truth or dare, we decided to watch The Host, and I lost track of the time. Before I knew it, the movie was over, and it was late, but I didn't care. I stayed long after everyone else left.
Talia and I sat together and cuddled on the couch with a blanket loosely covering only our legs. I felt her warm, soft cheek brush against mine as I gripped her hand tightly. "I'm cold!" She complained, and pulling the blanket over her shoulders.
"Oh no, beautiful! Not on my watch!" I said, quickly pushing the blanket off of her and replacing it with my arms.
She gave me a mock irritated glance, hugged me back and mumbled, "Oh, fine!"
This was a pretty accurate example of my nearly-everyday perfect life. Great friends, sweet girlfriend, and fun hangouts. But my life also had high expectations and annoying pests that I had to deal with.
