Wednesday and Thursday go by fast and soon enough it was Friday. MY heart's been beating faster as time comes closer, my hands been trembling, and every time I saw him throughout the school day Butterflies erupted from my stomach and I couldn't help but smile. Now I'm at home and have at least a half an hour to get ready. I go through my closet to find something anything to wear. I finally found an outfit to wear. A black skirt that reached my knees, with some of my boots, a red shirt that had little sequences at the bottom ( which I really didn't like ), and I wore a black hat on top of my head with my hair down and curled. I kept my makeup the same, just adding a bit of lip gloss.
At 5:30 my doorbell ringed. I raced downstairs to opened it , but I was too late Caden already reached the door. I looked through Caden and saw Ash holding a small bouquet of flowers. I also then heard Caden ask " Who are these flowers for?" He then simple said "Lacey." I could only imagine the look on his face. I never really informed him about this whole date thing. Caden then said " Is that so." He moved out of Ash's way , who then came in and gave me my flowers .
After Caden gave Ash the " Brother" talk we were free to go . I got into Ash's car and said " Sorry about my brother, didn't think he would go that far." He chuckled and said " I'm just glad my brothers didn't have to give you a talk, I could only imagine what things they would tell you." I Giggled and said " So where are we going?" I ask . He rolled his eyes and said " You will see once we get there." I groaned . I kept flipping through the radio trying to find a song to keep me occupied. Eventually The sun set on the horizon right as we got to the place.
Ash lead me through some bushes and trees as we followed a trail in the dark. We reached an open areas soon were you can see the stars above our heads and fine firefly's flying around. I was in a trance. Ash broke me out of it when he said " There is more." He pointed at this tree and on the tree was a tree house. Ash went first up the latter then helped me up. When I got up it was completely dark, until Ash flipped a switched and mini lights filled the room. Ash then pulled out a blanket and laid it on the floor and brought out a picnic basket. giggled and said " Never really picked you as pulling off something like this." HE chuckled and said " There is a lot you don't know about me."I sat down next to him on the blanket and lifted an eyebrow while said " So tell me."
" Well, before my mother passed she taught me how to treat a lady, and it did help that my older sister took care of me too." I then said " You have older sisters?" He then said " Yea, only one ,but she moved out years ago once my parents die. She will send cards every once in a while." I shook my head understanding while taking in a bit of some of the gunny worms he brought." My brothers were the ones who taught me on how to charm a lady, which in my sense my sister and mothers way seems much easier." I giggled at that as he continued " I usual am quite tough I never really cry at those sad movies or in general , I learned to I guess be stronger than that." I nodded my head and then asked " why did you choose this place to go to?" A smile came across my face and he said " My brothers and use to come here and just hang I guess, but we stopped years ago so I guess this can be our place." I smiled at that though "Our place?"
He told me about himself in more depth than before. He gave me a piece of him. I decided to give him a piece of me also." You told me about yourself, I think you deserve to know some more about me also." He just simply nodded his head letting me continue. " Adam that guy who kept talking to me. We dated last year. He at that time was my only joy, but he is the main reason why I stopped talking. He was that last straw. One night he took me to a party an hour away in December and we kind of got separated. I found him by his car ,but was hidden because I heard them talking about me. They said they wanted to ditch and Adam said no because he brought me here. The other guys said that he could do better and stuff and eventually convinced him to leave.So I stood there and watch him leave me behind all alone, no one to drive me home, and with a broke heart. I walked home that night and For some reason I though there could be an excuse maybe he was drunk or maybe it wasn't him at all, but the next week at school he was avoiding me and would only talk to me when we were alone. He broke the finial straw . I been stabbed in the back by my friends and my heart was crushed by my mom dying. I couldn't take it so I just stopped talking. I changed the way I looked so You could see how I felt on the inside as the outside."
The whole time while all Ash did was listen and when I was done he just gave me a hug and whispered in my ear " I would never leave you." We than cuddled into the blanket together and looked up at the stars and stayed silent . Enough was said between the both of us already, and I believe this was just a perfect date. The time came for him to drive me home. When I got there I gave him a kiss goodnight and went inside. I found Caden asleep on the couch , probably staying up till I got home. I put on a blanket on his and went up to my room. I found my PJ's and got into bed. I then whispered into the night air " goodnight!"
