‘You know this is not right‘ Mia lashes in, when i take one quick glance on his instagram page before i settle in for lunch. ‘Not the same thing again Mia’ i hush her away, scrolling down the page for any new updates, sticking a bun in my mouth.
‘Well don’t tell me later, i didn’t tell you so. First the man is clearly using you. Second, you got to honest about your age. You are way younger for him’
‘Shhh‘ i throw a warning look at Mia ‘Don’t mention him on public’.
‘Like as if everyone knows about him’ she replies rolling her eyes. ‘They should actually, this is crime. Him manipulating you..’
‘Whatever ok Mia‘ i roll back my eyes at her. ‘He doesn’t even know’
‘Tell him then’.
‘No way. He will never forgive me. He hates lies. And i have tons of those..Only you think it’s disgusting, every girl has a fantasy of dating hot Math/Science or a Gym Teacher..’ i protest in my defense.
‘You look beautiful Carem’ Will compliments me, pulling over a seat for me, that evening in our dinner date. ‘And you look as good as always‘ i smile back, my comment, every word of it filled with nothing but entire honesty, right away from my heart. ‘When will you realize that will?’
‘Thank you for being such a gentleman. You truly know how to keep a lady’.
‘Only for those i aim to keep‘ Will replies, winking his eyes. Oh’ he is so gorgeous!!
I have never been into a fancy restaurant like this before. In fact i have never been in a date. Will is my first and i am glad he is. I would have nothing else to wish for even if Genie was to appear right away and commanded me to ask for wishes. However, at the moment, i could use someone to help me with my level of confidence. I am starting to doubt my knife and fork skills. My palms feel sweaty and these few strands of hair that never bothered in my life before, like ever, are starting to give me an itchy sensation.
I wish i could tell Mia how i am feeling right now. And explain to her…how important Will is for me. But she judges books by cover. She will only see Will as a wolf, and nothing else. It’s a shame. I am alone, going through my most struggling phase, when i really could use her help.
I go through my head, what i read about ‘first dates’ in the internet this morning. And what i remember makes me more nervous. ‘Will Will kiss me tonight? Or will he want more? Are we going to do it? Will it hurt?’
I panic. And probably because he notices it, he gives a warm touch over my fingers and asks ‘Are you alright?’
‘Yes. Of course‘ I reply, brought back to my senses with his radiant smile. I went and shopped for the sexiest inners i could find for tonight, i might be realizing it just now but for this moment, i have always been ready.
