10. My Birthday

     By the time I got finished telling Josh about the last eight years, it was past midnight. "Oh my God Josh, do you know what day it is?" I asked surprisingly with sarcasm.

     Josh looked up at me and smirked. He stood up, walked over to me, cupped my face in his hands, and kissed me. "Happy Birthday Sae." Once I realized what Josh did, my mind started racing with questions. How did he feel for me? Was this just a friendly kiss? What's between us now? Are we dating now? Is he the one? Are we supposed to be together? Why did he wait 'till now to show up and kiss me? Was he hiding something?

     I walked over to my light switch and turned it off. There was still some light shining through the curtains. I didn't like it so bright in my room at night, but I didn't like it when it was pitch black. This is why I kept a maroon colored tint to my room. My walls were maroon, and so was my curtains, bed sheets and blankets, and most of my wardrobe. I loved the color maroon. I started to love it when I first moved into this place.

     I moved over to my bed and crawled under the covers. I found it surprisingly comfortable when Josh came over and crawled in after me. He moved closer to me and cuddled with me. He lifted his head and kissed my forehead. "I love you Sarah." It felt like my heart skipped a beat. Most of my questions were now answered, and I was extremely happy. I lifted my head right when I heard him whisper, "I just hope you feel the same." I leaned in before he finished his next thought and kissed him on the lips once more.

     "Of course I love you Josh," I said. I actually never thought about it before. Probably because I forgot about him until he showed up on my foster house's doorsteps. I felt different around Josh than I did when I was around Kale. My heart never skipped a beat the same way with Kale as it just did with Josh. I don't know if what I think is true, but I'd say Kale was more like a brother to me. "I love you more than you think," I whispered back. I loved the way I felt normal with Josh. I loved the way I got tingles when he kissed me for the first time. I loved the way my heart skipped a beat when he said that he loved me, but around my family it felt like I had to be someone they wanted me to; not who I wanted to be.


     In the morning I woke up to an empty space next to me. "Josh?" I spoke. I felt almost afraid that Josh left me, but that feeling dissipated when I heard his soft, kind voice.

     "I'm here baby. I always will. You have nothing to be afraid of," he promised. "What do you want to do for your birthday?" If it wasn't for his reminder I may have gone most of the day without remember, but as I sat up the thoughts of last night... this morning, whatever you want to call it, came flooding back to me.

     That kiss was all needed from him as a reminder that he wasn't going to leave me; however, it still felt like a dream. The kiss, the 'I love you,' us cuddling. "I just want to stay in bed with you. Just talk. Talk about us. Our status." I kind of felt silly saying 'Our status.' It felt like we just got in a fight and didn't know where our relationship was at.

     Before he could answer a holler came from downstairs and echoed upstairs. "Time for breakfast, birthday girl."

     Oh boy. Today I'm sixteen and I just learned interesting news. My life couldn't get any worse, and not only that I'm taking my permit test today. Yay. I mentally cheered. "Hey Josh do you want to come with me today to go take my permit?" I asked as I got dressed. No I didn't change in front of Josh. God that would be awkward. No I went to the bathroom, and yes I do have an adjoining bathroom.

So everyone should know what a normal day is for me, well... it wasn't a normal day at all. At about 10:30 I went to take my permit test. Passed with flying colors. Weird. Then after that Josh took me to lunch. Remember when I was telling you about The Beach? Well he took me there. We talked about our relationship goals. Where we were standing at. Where we were going with our relationship. "Look I don't want to rush you into anything, but if it's what you want then..." Josh started. I wanted to date him I honestly did. I just... I just didn't need him falling for me with the whole Queen Akasha mess going on.

     "I love you Josh. I do, but I don't want you to get hurt if something happens to me. Let's start out simple. Going on dates, holding hands, saying 'I love you,' you know stuff like that. If you want to have a title to us then let dating be it, but I don't want to move too fast. I don't need either of us getting hurt then hurt the other." I was going to let this happen. I was going to let us have a name to our relationship, so now we are officially dating. Hmm. I wonder what Brian and Kale would say? 

     After we finished eating, Josh stood up and pulled out my chair for me. Josh was really sweet. I loved him so much. I offered a 'thank you' and leaned in to him. I don't think he was expecting me to kiss him just as much as I wasn't expecting to do it, but his lips were just so... ineffable. It was amazing. The softness. The way he kissed me was just amazing. His lips weren't full, but they weren't thin either; if you know what I mean.

     He deepened the kiss only to get interrupted by a guy behind me. And I bet you can guess who that guy was. I turned around to find a very pissed Kale and surprised Brian. Whoops. I'm so busted.
