5. 5th Word- Clip
I knocked on the door to a modern Victorian house, it was bright white and absolutely beautiful, a wonderful sight from a designer's perspective if I was one, and the most interesting architecture from an architect's perspective, but I wasn't one of those either, I was the boyfriend of the stunning girl inside, the one who had saved me from a cursed mansion in which I had been trapped inside a painting for several years. I wasn't the only one she had saved, but I was the only one I knew that we knew was still alive, and now gifted with eternal life, to be young forever, at around the age of twenty-five. I knocked again, and heard Truffle begin to bark inside. Truffle was one of my girlfriend's, Claire, successful experiments, and wow was he intriguing. A genetic hybrid of a wolf and a tiger, except he was the size of a domestic cat. Truffle had helped Claire through the mansion, he was probably the only thing that kept Claire alive, I couldn't exactly do much because back then, I had been basically a ghost, just with little quirks, like the ability to speak to Claire through her mind. But Truffle had guided Claire out of the fire and through many of the mansions traps. The door was pulled open, interrupting my reminiscing, Claire stood in front of me, Truffle shaking excitedly at her feet, purring in his own way. I smiled brightly, Claire was beautiful, her long blue hair clipped on top of her head, a white rose clip standing out on the side of her head, she wasn't quite my height, but we were pretty evenly matched. She was wearing simple tight jeans and a long black singlet that glittered in the light of the setting sun. I gasped, she was so striking with her blue hair, bleached in a lab accident then dyed a bright blue. I held out the bouquet of tulips I held in my hand, they were a mix of bright colours, she giggled, taking them from my hand. She invited me into the house, I followed her inside to the kitchen, it was mostly modern, a new stove, fridge, mixer and microwave, though Claire was only learning how to cook she had slowly gotten the hang of it all with a lot of assistance from me, but she still forgot bits and pieces, like how to use a knife. We stepped over the wooden flooring to the white wooden cupboards and Claire reached up to pull out a vase and fill it with water, then placed her tulips inside. She turned to me and asked "Shall we go Seth?" I nodded, smiling brightly at her, she was bouncing with excitement, and possibly nervousness, just like me. I took a step closer to her, placing my hands on her waist. "We have a little bit of time," I said, my lips a breath away from hers. I closed the gap and pushed my lips against hers, they were so soft and moist, I kissed her deeply, nipping her bottom lip, she gasped and giggled, a small little sigh that barely escaped as I kissed her more intensely. She moaned as my hands explored her body, wandering over the exposed skin at her hips, caressing her, stroking her stomach through her singlet. Her hands clasped around my neck, tugging gently at the hair on the base of my neck. I pulled back, we were both breathing heavily. I smiled and stroked her chin, "Time to go see the film clip sweetie," Her lower lip jutted out in a pout, I put my finger on it and stroked it, then pulled back, dragging her to the door. She picked up her purse, locked the door and followed me to the door. I opened the driver's door to her mini, and she slid in. I still hadn't gotten the hang on the driving thing, cars and road rules had changed too much, I walked around to the passenger door and climbed inside, it was a small car but very comfortable, I settled back into the seat as Claire reversed out of the driveway. It was a short drive to the cinema. "So what 'Film clip' are we going to see?" Claire asked me, teasing at my words for movie. "It's a surprise," I teased back, she pouted again as we drove into the car park of the cinema. We stopped and slid out of the car. I grabbed Claire's hand and pulled it up to my lips, "I promise that you will love the clip," I said and kissed her hand, placing my lips on her soft skin. I escorted her up the stairs to the cinema and to the front desk where I bought two tickets to see the clip, Guardians of the Galaxy, Claire stared at me, smiling with incredible excitement, I also bought buttered popcorn, two chocolate coated ice-creams and two cans of coke, then we made our way to cinema three. This was going to be an excellent movie date, I thought.
