It's been a few months and I've been hanging out with just Luke more often. He was taking me to the park where we reunited. He told me to meet him there at 1. I made my way to the park and saw a picnic basket and blanket. Luke was sitting down waiting for me. I walked over and sat down with him. "You hungry?" I nodded in response. He pulled out strawberries, my favorite, juice boxes and sandwiches cut into fours just how I like them. We ate in silence which was unusual not for me but for Luke he always talks.
I looked up at him and he seemed nervous. I tapped him on his shoulder and he looked up. I gave him an 'are you okay?' look. He sighed,"There's something I've wanted to tell you for awhile, like since we were 15." I signaled for him to go on. "I remember the way you'd cover your mouth when you laughed because you had braces. When you blushed when someone said something nice about you. I remember how you hate watching zombie movies because you would get nightmares. I thought why would I pay attention to these little things. But I couldn't get them out of my head. I thought they were adorable. I hated when other guys looked at you. I would just want to punch them. And then I came to the realization that I was in love with you. Everything you did amazed me. I hated myself after I stopped talking to you. And when I saw you on the swing I felt like I got a second chance, which I couldn't ruin. Isabelle Carter I love you and I will until my heart stops beating."
" Luke Brooks I love you with everything I have."
"You talked!" He said hugging me.
"Well you gave me a reason to." He kissed me softly and took my hand in his. We stayed there for the rest of the day. I never stopped speaking after that. He was my reason.
