9. Dylan's POV: The Date pt 1- Getting to Know You

Awesome. I’m glad she had to go to her family dinner because I wasn’t gonna be able to get the car tonight. A walk on the beach is cool, I guess. It’s definitely not the first date I was thinking of but hey, I guess things happen for a reason. It gave me more time to sleep though. I didn’t want to hang out with Connor or Jake today because I know they just wanna get high and if I told them I was going on a date with Ariel, Connor would give me hell and start calling me whipped. But even if me and Ariel did become a “Thing” I wouldn’t mind being whipped by her. She didn’t seem like the kind of girl that asked for a lot from her boyfriend. I better stop thinking about this before I get my hopes too high and it doesn’t work out.

I grabbed my black cargo shorts from my suitcase and a fresh white t-shirt that had “California Born and Raised” written on it and my black and white high-top Nike’s and laid it out on top of my suitcase. I laid back on my bed and crashed for a couple hours.


When I woke up it the sun was setting and I looked at my phone to see that it was 7:38.

“Shit!” I gasped and jumped out of the bed and jumped in the shower. When I got out, I hurried and threw on my clothes and just put on a black and white snapback on my wet hair because I didn’t have time to fix it. I know what you’re thinking, I sound like a girl and I don’t give a fuck. I liked to look nice and I liked to do my hair, even when I had a snap back on. I quickly ran downstairs to find that my grandma was home and was asleep on the couch. I took her keys and I sprinted out the door.


By the time I got to Miami Beach the sun had gone down and it was 8:08. I parked as close as I could get to the dock. Even when the sun was down the Beach was still packed. I sprinted to the dock only to find that I had beaten Ariel getting there.

“Thank God.” I mumbled to myself.

Just as I was catching my breath I heard her voice behind me.

“Haha. You’re late” she smiled.

I couldn’t help but laugh because I honestly thought that I had gotten there before her.

“Yeah I know I’m sorry. How was the family dinner?” I asked trying to change the subject.

“Good, I guess. I can honestly say that I’ve never eaten so fast in my life, and look not one single stain on my shirt.” she stated with a proud smile.

I liked her humor. I was always attracted to girls who could make me laugh.

“Haha! You look very beautiful by the way.” I said laughing

“Aw. Thank you. You look pretty handsome yourself.”

“Thanks. You wanna sit down on the edge?” I asked.

“Yeah. That’s cool. So… what did you do today?” she asked

“Honestly, nothing. This is the highlight of my day. What about you?”

“Haha! Well I went to the beach with the girls, then I went to my family dinner and now I’m here with you.” She said smiling.

“That’s cool. So… tell me about yourself.” I stated

“Haha! Well, what do you wanna know?”

“Um, how old are you and when is your birthday?” I asked

“I’m 17. And my birthday is October 16th. What about you?”

“I’m also 17. And my birthday is August 27.” I said.

“So you’re a Virgo”

“Ha! Yeah” I laughed nervously.

“Haha. I’m really into zodiac signs and astronomy and stuff like that” she smiled while looking down.

“Oh, okay. That’s cool. So what do you like to do in your spare time?”

“Well I’m on a sand volleyball team, I wanna learn how to surf, and I hang out with Octavia, Deetra and Rayleigh. What about you?”

“Nice.  I surf, so maybe I can teach you, um… hang out with Connor and Jake and that’s pretty much it. My life is pretty boring. I’m hoping you can make it less boring.” I said with a nervous smile.

She smiled and got up and reached down for my hand to pull me up and said,

“Walk with me.”
