Elli was upset all day yesterday. She never told me why though. I think it may have been that she has to leave for college at the end of the summer. I don't know how I'm going to go through that either. Elli will be living on the other side of the country for four years. Four damn years. Four years of hell. I'll miss her like crazy. I have to make this whole summer count. Starting today.
I sigh as I walk into the kitchen to feed rue. "Do you want to see Elli today?" I ask as I make myself some cereal. Rue jumps and wags her tail in excitement. I laugh. "Later we will."
After eating my cereal and texting Elli, I take a quick shower and get dressed. Elli said that I could come over whenever and that she's feeling better today. I've decided to take her out to lunch so we can have an 'us' day. I just want Elli to feel better.
I smile once I see Elli. Her hair is straightened and she just looks plain beautiful. "Do you wanna go out to lunch? Just a you and me day?" I ask as I take her hand.
Elli looks up at me and smiles brighter than I've ever seen her smile. "I'd love to." She says. I smile and kiss her softly before she closes the door behind her and walks with me to my car.
I hold Elli's hand the whole entire way to the restaurant. We sit in silence but it's one of those relaxing, good silence. It's not awkward at all. I watch out of the corner of my eye as Elli fixes her beanie. She looks in the mirror and fixes her hair. "You're beautiful, there's no need to fix anything." I simply say as I pull Into the parking lot of Elli's favorite restaurant.
Elli smiles. "See this is why I love you." She says. I look at her with a questioning look. "I love you because you make me feel so special and like I'm worth something. You make me feel beautiful when you tell me I am and I really like that." She explains. I smile and kiss Elli slowly. Her hair falls out of her beanie and she doesn't even attempt to fix it. All she does is continue to kiss me and intertwine our fingers together. "I'm not that hungry." She giggles against my lips.
I laugh. "Neither am I, wanna go to the park?" I ask. Elli smiles and nods. I start the car again and drive towards the park.
"You know, I remember when we were little kids here." Elli says as we make our way and sit on the swings. "I used to always come here with my dad."
I laugh and start to swing a little on the swing. "I remember, one day, I was doing the monkey bars. I failed horribly and I fell and got sand in my eye." I laugh.
Elli laughs. "Remember when we used to play on the slides together?" She asks. "And we used to race."
I laugh, remembering the story. "See, we were destined to be together." I laugh.
"Not true, we hated each other in fifth grade remember?" Elli laughs as she kicks the rocks from beneath her as she begins to swing. "I ratted you out for pranking that one kid."
"I was so mad over that. I got a detention and I was suspended for two days because of you." I tease.
"Shut up." She laughs.
"It all worked out for the best, didn't it?" I ask as I take her hand. Elli smiles and nods. "I love you." I say as I kiss her cheek.
Elli blushes and squeezes my hand. "I love you too."
"Do you wanna go to my place?" I ask. "Rue misses you." I tease. Elli nods and laughs. And then we walk away from the park.
And just like that, we ended up spending the rest of the night with each other. Just us. We didn't even do anything. All we did was eat pizza and watch movies and talk and eventually fall asleep on the couch. That's all we did.
And today was one of the best days of my life.
I hope you all liked this horrible short chapter. Cx Do you guys have any ideas that could happen over the summer in this movella? Because I need ideas. I'm open to any. Love you allxx
