Miranda had no idea what she was going to say to him. Well other than the stuff they normally talked about: work, sports, and the like. But when it came to sharing her feelings, especially romantic feelings, Miranda knew diddly squat. All she could do was try her best. Miranda pulled up in front of David's house and knocked on the door.
"Hey Miranda," he said with a smile.
"Hi," she responded walking in after David stepped aside, "Let me guess Primanti Bros."
"No Chinese is that ok?" he asked hesitantly.
"Of course," she said. God he knew she was sucker for Chinese food. It made her like him even more.
"Good," he said sitting down across from her, "I figured we could watch a movie tonight too."
"What movie?" she asked.
"Whatever you want in my collection," David said pointing to the pile of DVDs on the coffee table.
"Ok, sounds good," she said.
They both continued to eat their meal and it was silent for a while when David spoke up out of the blue, "Ok, I know this might be awkward for you, but I've had feelings for you for a while now," he rambled.
Miranda just sat there dazed for a few minutes before she took a deep breath and said, "I've had feelings for you since forever. I never admitted it but I've had a crush on you since the day you walked into Three Rivers for your residency. I just didn't know how to tell you because you know me and feelings don't get along."
David smiled and laughed, "Really? You and feelings don't get along?" Miranda was pretty much the most sarcastic, rebellious, overbearing, and temper mental person he had ever met. Yet somehow he loved that about her.
"Shocker isn't it," said Miranda sarcastically as she sauntered over to the movies, "You would own all the Star Wars movies," she said shaking her head.
"Well is that what you want to watch?" he asked.
"Yeah let's bring out our inner nerd tonight," she joked.
"Ok," he said popping the disc in and settling down on the couch. For the first time, just naturally, Miranda leaned against David's chest as he wrapped his arm around her. She wondered how you could have a crush on someone for nearly two years and never say anything. Sure she dated in high school, but they were never anything serious. She wondered where they would be now if she or he had said something earlier. Although the movie was on David must have been thinking the same thing she could tell. She also decided not to overthink it when David leaned in towards her and let everything run its course when their lips met.
