Ars Amatoria Romance Theme Challenge
Time Frame: During "Weather or Not"
(Specifically after Mack smiles and says "we're unbeatable")
There it is, I thought. That smile. My breath caught as I hurriedly turned back to the book in my hands.
I could hear Ronny, Will and Sax talking about our upcoming trip to St. Lucia, their voices just a blur as I pretended to study my book. I could feel Mack's eyes on me, but I ignored it. Outwardly, that is. In my mind I was freaking out.
He's looking at me. Calm down, Rose. Of course he's going to look at me. We're on the same team; it would be very awkward if he didn't look at me.
I turned the page, not having read a single word. I tried to force my cheeks not to blush as I felt them start to turn red.
He's not just looking he's staring. Isn't he? Don't look, as if it isn't awkward enough as it is. My cheeks must match his ranger suit by now.
I cautiously flicked my eyes up over the top of my book only to find that the others had left. I started with surprise. "Where did they go?"
"They went into town to get some burgers." He told me in a soft voice. I turned to look at him.
"Why didn't you go too?" I asked looking into his blue-green eyes.
"I'd much rather stay with you."
And he smiled. That smile that made my heart melt. The smile that stopped everything making it seem as if we were the only two people in the world…
Until our Trackers beeped, bringing us back into the real world: the world where evil tried to conquer. The world it was our job to protect.
Protecting the world was a huge weight on all of our shoulders, a weight that was only lifted when he smiled.
A/N: There you go, my first attempt at a drabble. Was it horrible? Please let me know whether to continue or not.
