When I came up from the water, everyone was cheering. I smiled and went up to my cot, grabbed a beer, and started drinking. Wesley came up to me and widened his eyes.
"Um...Lilian, aren't you too young to drink?" He questioned and sat down next to me.
"I'm 18. Besides, I can't get any DUIs, I don't even have a car. I have to walk everywhere." I laughed a bit and offered him a sip but he shook his head.
"I don't drink. So...do you want to go to the movies with me? There's a theater only 5 minute walk from my place." I smiled a bit at his nervousness. Or his lack of confidence but I said yes.
I went to my bag and grabbed a white button up blouse, black shorts, and sandals. I walked to a porter potty and quickly changed before putting my dirty clutches in a trash bag.
I sat on my cot and waited until Wesley came running up to me. "Sorry. The elevators were broken and I live in the top floor." He handed me a flower, breathing loudly probably from running there, up the stairs and down, and back. I smiled and walked next to him as we headed to the movies.
About half way, I had put my hands in my pockets when I real sided something. "Oh my gosh! Wesley, I forgot my money!" He just laughed and pulled my hand out of my pocket to hold it. "H-how am I supposed to pay for my ticket?" I ask, looking a little worried.
"Calm down, Lili. I wasn't going to allow you to pay anyways." He laughed a little and I looked at him curiously. "I'm saying that I would pay for you." He said as he cot my confusion.
"Oh. Haha. No no you don't have to do that. You can just wait here and I'll run back and get some money." I started to run back but he grabbed my wrist and pulled me into him. I laugh. "Wesley, it's fine. I'll be quick."
He just sighed and shook his head. "You don't get it." And he picked me up bridal style while I was laughing and struggling to escape.
When we got to the theater. I let out a huff as he set me down. "Come on sweetly let's go get tie ticket." He talked in a baby voice as if I was 5.
"How old do you think I am?" I sassed and put my hands on my hips. He made a rawr motion with his mouth and hands then he grabbed my hand and we walked together to the cashier.
We got our tickets to some horror movie. I told him I didn't mind them but I was actually terrified I horror movies. We got a large popcorn to share and two medium drinks.
We headed into the theater and took our seats. The place wasn't packed so we sat in the very back.
When the movie started. The popcorn was already half finished so I are slower. Wesley would laugh a little when I used him as my shield from the screen.
Wesley's hand rested on my leg. My breath hitched as my face turned pink. His hand rubbed up and down and I glanced at him, seeing a small smirk tugging at the ends in of his lips.
When the movie was over, the popcorn was gone. We walked and laughed all the way back to the beach when it started thundering. A lightning bolt struck about 20 feet away from where I slept and I yelped. Wesley had already offered me to crash at his place wen it was only raining but I said I loved rain. Now, I wish I said yes.
I was crying and huddled under my blanket as lining would be striking at the ground.
"Lilian! Come on I'm not letting you stay out here!" I heard from the distance but not before a lightning bolt struck only a few feet away from me. The shocks went all through my body until everything went black.
