I walked down the sidewalk,I walked into a bunch of trees,eventually I got to the park that Matthew showed me. I walked over to the small wooden bench and I sat on it. I sighed,thinking about what Katie told me,it's not my fault,I couldn't see see him like this! I got frustrated and let out a scream. I got up and threw a pebble at the pond,making fish swim like crazy in fear. I groaned and sat on the ground,taking deep breaths.
"Candice?" I heard,I turned my head to see Matthew standing there.
I smiled and sat next to Candice.
"Need to think?" I asked her,she chuckled and nodded. I needed to think too. I just bought a ring to engage to Candice with,I needed to think about when's the perfect time to do it. I had the box in my back pocket,I pushed it deeper into my pocket,making sure that Candice didn't see it. I moved around a little,the ring in my pocket hurt my butt a little. Candice gave me a weird look and looked down. I smiled at the thought of Candice in a beautiful,white dress,walking down the isle with flowers in one hand. I looked at her,this would be the perfect moment,but I would be rushing things...wait,I'm already rushing things! I already bought the ring and everything. School ends next week,I could propose a few weeks after. I sighed and put my head in my hands. I looked up,sunset,Candice smiled at it,soaking in the beauty of the color that lingered in the sky. I frowned and noticed that Candice noticed.
"Are you okay?" She asked. I shake my head.
"You can tell me..." I sigh and give up.
"I want to propose to you Candice!" I yell.
"I want to,but I keep think that you'll say no or that I'll be rushing things!" I stood up,running my fingers through my hair,Candice stood up too.
"No,Matthew! I wouldn't say no! Though you should at least wait until we graduate..." I sigh and nod.
"C'mon,let me take you home..." Candice sighs and follows me to my car.
I got out of Matthew car and waved him goodbye. He gave me a smile before he drove off,I sighed. Did I just reject him? I shake it off and go inside of the house,going upstairs into my room. I closed my door behind me,jumping onto my bed,I didn't want to deal with anymore drama,I thought about it,falling asleep.
