I didn't know where I was going. I just ran to the park. I got out of breath and decided to stop for a minute. I thought it was safe as my Dad would be too drunk to even get of the sofa and let alone out here. I looked down at my feet. I bumped into someone. I fell back and my glasses fell off.
"Are you okay?" The voice said. I couldn't see anything but I think he caught the message and gave me my glasses. He was very good looking.
"Yes I am thank you. Did you get hurt?" I asked as he helped me up. I dusted myself off.
"No I didn't get hurt but how about I take you to get some coffee? You look a little shaken up." He said as he smiled. I nodded and returned the gesture. We started to walk.
"What is your name?" He asked.
"My name is Rebecca but you can call me Becca if you want. What is yours?" I said.
"Well hello Becca, my name is Calum. I would give you a nickname for me but there isn't much to do with it. My name is quite boring really isn't it?" We laughed.
"I like the name Calum. It's so simple." I said.
"Well thanks." He said sarcastically and he acted as if he was offended by my comment.
"No I mean-" I started.
"Becca, it's okay. It was a joke! It takes a lot for me to get offended, I live with three boys!" He said and I blushed. He must of noticed. "I like it when you blush. You look even more beautiful." He said and then he covered his mouth after realising what he said. "Sorry!" He whispered.
"That's the first time someone has ever called me beautiful." I said.
"Really? Has your boyfriend never told you how pretty you are?" He asked. I shook my head.
"I don't have a boyfriend." I said, well I was telling the truth.
"Wow!" Was all he could say.
"What?" I said.
"How come you don't have a boyfriend?" He said.
"No boy wants me." I said quietly as I looked to the floor. My eyes filled with tears.
"Well they must be blind to not see the beauty you contain." He said quite genuinely.
"That was so poetic Cal." I said.
"Cal? I like it." He said. He opened the door for me as we walked into the coffee shop. I thanked him. We lined up at the queue.
"What would you like Mr?" The waitress winked. She literally had her boobs sticking out of her shirt. I don't know why but a wave on jealousy fell over me.
"Two vanilla lattes please." Calum said. He didn't seem interested in her which made me smile. She gave us our coffees and we sat at a table. We chatted about ourselves a little more and then he looked at his watch. "Damn! It's six o'clock! I have to get going." He said.
"Oh." Was all I could say. I really liked him.
"What's wrong?" He asked.
"It's just... I have nowhere to go." I whispered so only he could hear.
"Come home with me and you can explain it all to me." He said as he smiled. I smiled back. I grabbed my bag and we left through the door.
