"If we are going to finish this project in time for English then we need to start it now, Joey." I said while looking at him sitting on my bed.
It's been nearly 3 months since I've met him and we've grown closer and my feelings have grown stronger than ever before.
We weren't a "thing" yet and I guess I liked how slow we were taking all of this. I mean, I wouldn't mind it if we were a thing but I guess waiting actually gave me this anxious feeling of not knowing what the future could actually hold.
"Yeah, yeah, yeah. Come on, Chlo. We can always do something else instead. Pweeeassee." Joey said, while sticking out his bottom lip. This "puppy dog face" always gets me, but not this time.
"Joey, no. We need to get this done if you want a good grade for the semester. And I for one, do not want to hear your parents complaining because your grade went down due to your lack of wanting to be involved." I spun around in my chair and began writing down ideas on what to do.
I was soon spun around swiftly and I was faced with Joey's emerald eyes, staring into my blue ones. His face, inches from mine, made me hold my breath. My heart skipped a beat. I've never been this close to him, especially face to face.
I took in the structure of his jawline, revealing the perfect outline of his shaped face. I stared down at his lips and then back up into his eyes. He smirked, revealing his perfect dimples.
"Chloe, relax. We have plenty of time until it's due." His voice was so low, almost as a whisper. "It's Friday anyway, and there is a party at Brendan's house. You should go and take a breather for once." He stood up and crossed his arms.
I finally breathed out and I looked up at him. I gathered my words and I stood up. "Fine, but we are working on this project, whether you like it or not." I said, while I playfully poked at his chest.
He leaned down and smirked again. "Whatever you say, buttercup."
