217. Owen Grady 40

~At first you thought he came for the baby dinosaurs; then you began to wonder if he came to watch the kids have fun; however, you couldn’t help the feeling that he was coming to see you.
You saw him approach and lean against the fence, watching the children play with the animals. You were blessed to have been placed in the petting zoo because, frankly, you’re afraid of larger dinosaurs. However, you couldn’t imagine anything cuter than the baby ones. You get to watch them grow and be by their sides every day. You’re thinking about how lucky you are to get to feed them and form bonds with them when Owen appears at your side and breaks you from your thoughts, “Hey there Y/n, you look distracted.” He flashes a smile at you and you laugh.
“Yeah, just thinking about how much I love them.” You lean against the fence looking at all your little ones running around with the children. “They’re so cute.” You smile widely at this and Owen looks down at you.
“Well, I think you’ve got them beat on the cuteness” He winks down at you and you can’t hide the slight blush that crosses your cheeks. He’s rarely ever talked to you, let alone flirt; he really just stares. You begin to think your instincts were right about him coming to see you.
“Well, I have to go, just wanted to stop by and say hi.” Your heart twinges when he says he’s leaving and you’re not really sure why. You tell him goodbye and watch as he walks away.
Owen Grady, you think to yourself. Yeah, I guess he’s pretty handsome. And nice. And funny… You shake your head dejectedly and cover your face with your hands. Damn, I hope he’s coming for me. I’m in deep.
The next day, you don’t see Owen and it honestly makes your day a little less exciting. You’d be lying if you said you don’t spend half the day looking for him in the crowd, and when the last child leaves for the day, you begin to user the little ones towards the paddocks but you hear someone call your name.
“Hey, Y/n. You need a hand?” Your face breaks into a huge grin at the sound of his voice and you close your eyes for a second, regaining your composure before looking at him. You don’t want to seem too over excited to see him.
“Hush,” you say looking back at him. “it’s not easy getting all these kids to go to the same place! Especially this little stubborn one!” you tease him, looking at the dinosaur across the pen.
He laughs and you’re shocked when he says, “Okay.” He jumps the fence, unnecessarily as the gate was only a few feet down from where he stood and walks towards you and turns around to call one of the triceratops towards him. He makes sounds like he’s calling a dog, but she doesn’t move. She stares at him for a few seconds and then drops to the floor to lie down. When he looks up at you, you raise your eyebrows challengingly and smile.
“Not so easy is it?” you smirk.
“Oh, give me a break. I’m not done yet.” He stands up again and goes over the small dinosaur and tries to nudge it to stand up. You can’t hold back your laugh when it turns its head and nips at his ankles. He looks down in slight shock and points his finger at her, chastising her for biting. It’s honestly the cutest thing you’ve ever seen him do.
“Guess it’s not that easy then, huh?” you tease once more and he looks at you and smirks. You’re not sure why until he bends down and scoops up the small dinosaur in his arms, carrying her right past you towards her pen. He laughs as he walks by and sees the look you’re giving him.
“That’s cheating!” You shout, running after him. “It doesn’t count.” You cross your arms like a child, secretly jealous that you aren’t strong enough to pick them up. It would make your job a hell of a lot easier.
“It’s not cheating.” He says, smiling at you, “I just happen to have different resources than you.” You laugh when he wiggles his eyebrows at you and hit him softly on the chest.
“Owen, I can’t figure you out.” You say, getting semi-serious with your tone. “You come here almost every day. Is it for the dinosaurs?” you ask, more fishing for want you want to hear than the answer to that question.
He puts his hands in his pockets as he laughs, “No. not exactly.” You don’t ask about the kids, just get straight to the point.
“Owen, do you come here to see me? Because if you do, you should at least tell me that. I mean, if you like me, just say so.” You try to keep your voice light so that you can pretend you’re joking if he says no. But you’re not disappointed when he smiles down at you and leans in towards you.
“I like you.” He whispers, bluntly. You know your eyes get wide by the way he pulls back to laugh. You try to control your emotions, glad to hear that your instincts were right. He does like you.
You get yourself under control and tilt your head and ask, “Well what took you so long? I’ve been waiting weeks to hear that.” It’s his turn to look confused as he looks down at you.
“I um-” He stops, looking nervous, and you wish you could take a picture of this to use as blackmail. Owen Grady nervous around a girl; it’s quite a rare sight. “You didn’t really seem interested in me.” You laugh at this and shake your head.
“You big doofus.” You say, “Like anyone can withstand your charm.” You wink at him and turn to walk away, but he follows after you.
“So,” he starts as you begin to wash your hands at the sink by the pen. “Would you like to go out with me?” He has the cocky look you’re so used to back on his face and you know you can’t resist him.
“Yeah, I guess.” You smirk up at him, trying to sound disinterested, but he sees right through it.
“Well then, how about you come back to my place and we can have a beer, order some food. It will be fun.” As he’s talking, he’s getting impossibly closer to you, slowly placing his hands on your hips and looking down at you predatorily. You know he’s trying to be seductive, but you can’t help laughing.
He looks a little insulted as he steps back but you grab him by the shirt and pull him back towards you.
“I’m sorry,” you get out, laughter fading now, “Yes, I definitely want to do that.” He smiles and you figure you’re forgiven for laughing. You couldn’t help yourself; you’re just giddy with excitement. He gets a mischievous look on his f ace and you get worried for a second. He leans in and says, “I think we have one more child to relocate.” He says and before you can comprehend, he scoops you up in his arms and you begin to yell at him.
“Owen, what are you doing? Put me down!” You feel your face getting red and you’re trying your best not to pout, as it will only confirm his calling you a child. You give up fighting it and he sets you down by his motorcycle.
“Care for a ride?” he asks, smiling.
You can’t believe you’re actually going out with Owen. It’s a good thing you had the balls to ask, because if it was up to him, he might have never told you his feelings. You climb on behind him and wrap your arms around him as you think how much fun this new adventure is going to be.
