We arrived at a small town only 15 minutes away, it had a carnival, movies, and roller skating and ice skating rink. The ultimate never-go-here place for me. We got out the car and walked to the roller skating rink. My stomach turned as we walked inside. Louis bought our admission even though I refused to skate. Consider the fact it's school hours there were a lot of people here. I grabbed the size 8 shoes the man behind the counter just gave me and me and Louis walked to a bench. While I was trying to figure out how to tie the laces Louis had finished tying his shoes and was standing up. He saw me struggling and crouched down and helped me.
I felt even more sick as I thought 'Is this suppose to be a date or something?' When Louis was done tying my shoes he stood up and helped me up. When we got out on the floor I almost immediately fell, but Louis was right behind me and helped me. He was already laughing at how slow I was moving. After about 10 minutes I finally made it across the rink once. Louis passed me at least five times. once I got to the exit of the rink I stepped out and sat down. Soon Louis joined me, he didn't say anything just sat. Then I finally mustered up the courage to ask. "Hey Louis." "Hmm?"
"Um. What is this exactly? Are we hanging out or is this l-like a date?" I asked and he laughed a little, then stood up again grabbing my hand. We went back out in the rink, he started to teach me to skate. Which was making me nervous because he avoided my question. I started to get the hang of it and we started to skate together. I tried to unconnect our hands but he wouldn't let me. Then I saw some girls staring at me, or was it Louis. Either way they were staring at us, one made eye contact with me and mouth 'BITCH'. I toke a deep breathe and told Louis I wasn't feeling good. I went to sit down while he skating some more. I watched as I saw the same girls start to skate and flirt with him. I got up and turned my shoes in I just sat on the sidelines waiting to leave. Louis got off the floor looking pissed off, I stood up and asked him if he was ok. And he smiled at me, I gave him a small smile. as he turned in his shoes too. While we were walking out I spotted the girls again and looked away. Then I felt Louis's arm wrap around me, I got nervous again because I was so confused by him. I looked at his face but he was looking backward and then turned to look at the door.
Next we went to the carnival, it was already almost 1:00 pm. we walked around the carnival riding most of the rides and playing games. When we went to the water gun game I beat Louis 4 times in a row but he finally won one. We had been doing so much that I started to get tired. I rubbed my eyes while we were walking, then Louis pointed over to the Ferris Wheel. Something peaceful, and calming. We waited in line and the sun started setting. We finally got to the front and Louis whispered something in the operators ear .
Then we stepped on and it started, it was nice and slow. I put my head down on the pole and looked out at the little lake in the small town. It was like a small dream, I smiled thinking to myself about how nice today was, even though I was against it at first. I shut my eyes and dozed off. I had opened my eyes only once when the car stopped and we were at the top, I turned to face Louis and he had moved next to me. I smiled at him and fell asleep again.
When I woke up I was somewhere unfamiliar, I looked around everything still blurry. Slowly I came to see Louis's living room. I wiped my eyes and sat up, then it all came back to me. "So your up now?" I turned and saw Louis smiling at me with glasses on. I started to laugh hard. He was confused at first then realize he had his glasses on. I stopped laughing and grabbed my shoes at the end of the couch. "Tell me when your ready and I'll walk you home." He said I froze instantly. "Ah no that's ok, I can walk by myself." I said and he looked at me worriedly." No way I'm walking you. It's too dark outside for you to walk by yourself." He said I just gulped down.
When I was ready me and Louis walked out the door and down the street. We walked toward my house and when I saw the alley I thought of something to get rid of Louis. "Alright. Well I'm right there, so I'll see you tomorrow?" I said but Louis just started at me. "You really think I'm gonna leave you out here alone. I'm walking you to the door and leaving you in the hands of your parents." He said refusing to leave. I just sighed and toke a deep breathe. I went down the alley and Louis made a weird face. Then we walked out the alley and to my house. I opened the door and called upstairs to my mom. I turned toward Louis and he was just staring at me.
"Well this is me. Thanks for today. It was nice." I said feeling uncomfortable. He smiled at me and pulled me into a hug. "It was nice for me too." He said and pulled away, he was turning to walk away when: "Cassidy? Is that you?" I turned to see my mom, trying to get down the stairs. I rushed to help her, and complained about her trying to come downstairs again. "Hello. Ma'am, I was just walking her home." He smiled at my mom, and my mom looked so happy. "Thank you so much for taking care of her." My mom said holding Louis's hand. He smiled and waved goodbye to me.
