I sat there, staring at him, not sure what his next words were. Finally he spoke up and found what he was going to say. "I don't expect you to feel the same, Chloe, but I can't get you off of my mind. You're always in my thoughts and it makes me want to be with you more."
At that moment, I realized I was getting the feelings of butterflies in my stomach, again.
"I want us to be more than friends. I want us to be something. I want us to try and make that something last for as long as we can make it be. But, to make a long story short and as cheesy as all of that sounded"; He took a deep breath before speaking again, "Will you be my girlfriend?"
I sat there staring at him. He had the look of hope and lust in his eyes. The same look he gave me when I first met him in algebra. The same look that I fell for instantly. The same look that'll I'll fall for over and over again.
I nodded my head. "Yes, Joey."
"This is so beautiful." I said, as I leaned back into Joey's arms. He brought me to the hill overlooking the city after we ate. I watched as car lights reflected off the buildings and then soon disappearing. People's voices traveled with the wind, making the city seem more lively than ever.
"Not as beautiful as you." He whispered in my ear. I laughed and snuggled up to him. We sat there for a while watching the movement of everything, but as time passed and as it was getting late, we both knew we needed to head home.
He walked me to my door after we arrived at my house. I looked up at him and smiled. "Thank you for everything, Joey." He soon leaned down and kissed me softly on the lips. "Goodnight, Chloe." I watched him get back into his car and drive away. I walked into my house, careful not to make noise. I took a shower and closed my eyes as I recollected everything that happened today. My heart fluttered in my chest just thinking about it. I never thought in a billion years someone like Joey could be mine. After my shower, I laid down in my bed feeling cozy and relaxed.
Joey came into my mind, again. God, he was everything I could ever ask for. I haven't felt this happy in a long time. And I was grateful for that.
