Ello, there. The last chapter of the story, and I feel entirely off about this whole story. I had some kind of angle but it kinda panned out. But enjoy it anyways =D
From A Distance Ch 3
It was finally Friday afternoon, after school and the start of the weekend. I could not be more happier now, the party we were invited to was just hours away, and on the look of James' face, he was excited too. You'd never see any other excited teenager bouncing off the walls like he does. Heck he's hitting the streets as we speak. But no matter, how far or how fast he's going, he always waits up for me, even when I'm feeling the negative charge. And when I catch up, he's always got the goofy grin plastered on his face, and mine just mimics his. All the more reason why I like him so.
The sun had past it's halfway point, sinking into the horizon. It cast an eerie yet beautiful orange glow that dawned over my face and the point of dusk was awakening. Seeing the sun set usually calmed me down. I really needed to cool off for a bit, after everything that's been going on this week. The party's starting soon, and James said he'd be over to come pick me up. I better shower. Don't tell him, but I wanted to try and get closer to him tonight. I had to do my best. First, let's start with looks and uh, smell too.
After I got out, with a towel wrapped around me, I started to pick at my wardrobe. I wanted to look good, but I wanted to be smart and casual too. I decided on a white v-neck that James had suggested that I buy, a black jacket to match the night, and some dark washed jeans. I figured wearing some dark clothes would bring out the blonde in my hair and the blue of my eyes. And if James noticed, he could be mine soon enough. Also. I picked on some red briefs and boxers. I don't know why but red is such a turn on for me. And if I'm taking this where it should be going, it needs to stick out of my jeans, making it look hot.
I was all ready to leave, but when I opened the door, James was already there waiting for me. He looked so dashing, looking casual and oh so nice. I almost wanted to jump him. Don't worry I didn't. He was wearing a red tee with an intricate design that hugged his body so tightly, light washed jeans that also hugged at him at the right places, his hair was neatly combed but messy, making his face stand out. It was starting to get breezy and cold, but when you're as energetic as James, the cold has an immunity on you.
"Hey," I called, and he turned around and smiled widely.
"Hey, did you do something with your hair?" James reached out to tussle my hair a bit.
"Um, no not really. You like it?" I attempted to look adorable, which resulted in him chuckling so innocently.
"It's new and it really brings out your eyes." Yes, I got him where I want him now. Commence operation in 3,2 and 1.
The party place was packed, snacks laid scattered across a large table with a few drinks, the dance floor was packed and the hangout place was outside in the almost freezing environment. But it was nice. I was really chatting up a few girls, hanging out with a few guys and getting down on the dance floor. I was having a wonderful time, I almost forgot about James until I bumped into him.
"Hey, James. Wanna dance?" I tried to yell over the blasting music. He didn't say anything, but took my hands and we started to dance so close together. After spending so much time away from him, I could finally get myself closer to James, and actually want it to be. I felt so happy being around him. Even if it might be the blinding strobe light or the hazy fog coaxing the floor, feeling as if this was a dream, the whole feeling was absolutely incredible. Feeling James at every curve, in every motion, in his whole entity.
The song changed over a few times, and James and I switched positions a few times. This time, James had his back to me and his hands tangled in my hair. My arms were around him, holding him close to me, one around his waist and the other across his shoulder. My nose was buried in his hair, his oh so sweet scented hair, so soft and smooth. I wanted to just use it as a pillow and bury my face in it. But I didn't have to. He pulled my head in to get us closer together. We were like that for a while, until a slower song started to play. I was induced in some kind of trance, I started to feel sleepy. I almost lost control of myself. In fact. I think I did.
"J-James, I need to tell you something." I leaned down, close to his ear and whispered gently with that touch of suggestion.
"W-What is it, Kendall?" He turned around and he linked his arms around my neck, while I did it around his waist.
"I- I like you. But I can't stand you sometimes. I want to be around you and no where near you at the same time." I felt almost drunk on the party, I didn't know what I was saying. And judging by James' confused face, he could tell I wasn't completely myself at the moment. He looked so cute. I leaned down and approached his face so slowly, my eyelids closed and I could feel his breath get caught up in his throat, and leave with one big exhale. But then, I could feel a tap on my shoulder. Over looking, I saw the host of the party, Pete. He wanted to cut in, and James was back to his old self, full of energy.
"Kendall, I'll talk to you later. Why don't you take a rest before seeing me again. I'll be back." James pushed me away and lowered me to a seat before walking off to Pete. They were chatting and drinking, almost a little too close. Although I felt tired, and deluded, I could tell how this was almost sabotage. I was so close to get to James, but he had to cut in. I felt kinda jealous too. I mean James was close to Pete on the hockey team, as he was to me. And by how cute James is, I can tell he has a thing for him too. No point trying to get to him now, he doesn't believe me. I gotta try again, once I can collect my thoughts and act normal once again.
A half hour later, a few snacks and drinks too, I saw James on the balcony with Pete, laughing together and hanging out. They were the only two alone, and Pete was whispering in his ear, making James almost giggle flirtatiously. I had to do this. His driving me away was now getting to me, and now I had to get closer to him now.
"Hey Pete, James." I said almost too gleefully. "Pete, we're almost out of drinks and the people are going to get restless soon."
"Okay, James, I'll be back." I could see him wink at him before taking off. I shut the door behind him, leaving some kind of quiet time between us.
"James, I finally got what I wanted to say now that my heads a bit clear now." I looked at him in the eyes and I could see his big brown eyes, staring deep into mine.
"I never noticed how blue your eyes are, Kendall." That got me. Plan initiated. I cornered him and laid my arms on either side of him. He was trapped now. Now or never.
"James, We've been friends for too long now, and I really appreciate having you around. But being around you being so energetic and all, I didn't really want to be with you at most times."
"W-What are you saying Kendall?"
"Let me finish," I placed his finger on his lips to shush him. "There are also times which I really want to get close to you like now. And this past week, it's been such a revelation. James, what I want to say, and I keep on saying it on and on, is that I like you, James. I really like you." I took my finger off his lips and trailed it from the corner of his mouth to his ear, and then let it hold the back of his head. I pulled him in and I kissed him..
The kiss was powerful, I felt an unknown surge of energy flow through me, and my mind almost shocked crazy with some kind of electricity. My stomach seemed to settle, and my head started to feel light. And then I knew it. This was it. This kiss was the solidity to my polarity, being ever so attracted to him, and always will be now. I just knew it and I know he did too. Finally we pulled away and we opened out eyes to stare at each other.
"K-Kendall, y-you like me?" He looked so innocent and cute, it was too much for me. I pulled him in for a hug, so closely we shared heat in the cold winds.
"Always have, James. Probably, always will." I smiled genuinely and kissed his cheek. His face was burning red, and he was nervous. So cute.
"K-Kendall, I always liked you too." Then James wrapped his arm around me and I could immediately feel the effects of his close proximity get to me. It was almost too much, but it was too good a feeling.
Who knew that the only way to get close to James, was that I saw him from a distance.
