Chapter One

"Jess where were you?" My older brother Douglass whispered. "Jess are you alright what happened? Did he hurt you? Jess why are you smiling? Answer me!"

I couldn't I mean I just couldn't say a word; I was still in complete shock. What had just happened? I kept repeating those words over and over in my head. I have just had the scariest, most liberating, happiest night in my life and I was speechless. I couldn't believe it!

"Jessica please answer me, you're starting to really scare me now. Come on Jess." Douglass was really worried now. We were in my room, I was sitting on the edge of my bed and Douglass was sitting on my desk chair. It was 3 in the morning on a Sunday and my brother had caught me trying to sneak back into the house. He had motioned me to follow him into my room so we could talk without being over heard.

"Douglass, I'm fine. I more then fine. Don't worry I'm okay. Don't ask me where I was cause you won't like it and I really don't want to lie to you."

"Fine but Jess...." I interrupted him before he could finish.

"No Doug don't tell mom and dad. But if you do then I guess I'll be forced to them about you and Trish the other day."

"Okay, you win. But I swear if I catch you trying to sneak into this house anymore I'm telling them." He walked towards the door, "Good night," and he left.

It was only after I heard his door close that I flung myself back onto my bed and laughed, as quietly as I could, really hard. When I finally calmed myself down I though about what had happened tonight. It had all started when I was lying in my bed trying to do homework when I heard a rumble of a motorcycle engine in the distance.

My heart sped up as it always does when I hear a motorcycle engine. It came closer and closer and my heart was latterly doing jumping jacks in my chest. Then I didn't hear it anymore. I looked out my window, nothing. Oh, God Jess! Just forget about it, it's not him. Just as I settled back in my bed, I heard a little click against my window. I got up and looked outside of it, and there he was, the guy I was in love with.

He looked up at me with those hidden blue eyes and tried to whisper something up to me. I couldn't hear so I gave the "one second" signal and I rushed about my room trying to find something to wear. All I had on was a T-Shirt, hey give me a break I wasn't expecting company. So I found my favorite black jeans and a fitted green t-shit, pulled on my black converses, gave a quick glance in the mirror, good thing I hadn't taken my make up off yet, and quietly but quickly ran down the stairs.

I unlocked and opened the front door to find Rob standing on my porch. He looked so hot, okay I know I always say that but really can it be said enough? He took my hand and we walked down the street where in Indian was parked. Only once we got there did he say something to me. Well actually, he did say something to me but that was after he pulled me up against him and kissed me.

Yes Rob Wilkins kissed me, and let me tell you it wasn't a "friendly" kiss either. He pulled away a little while later and whispered in my ear, "I need to talk to you."

"Okay talk." I know not the most romantic or seductive thing to say but I was still in shock over the whole kissing thing.

"Not here, someone could be watching. Can you come to my house, we can talk in the barn." Yes, I swear that's what he actually said.

"Yeah," okay it's not what you think. I didn't just say that because I wanted to know. Look this is Rob we're talking about, the same Rob that doesn't even want to go on a date with me cause of the whole two years difference. So, we hopped on his Indian and took off.

Chapter Two When we got to Rob's house I saw that the house was dark, that was probably because Mrs. Wilkins had an early shift at my dad's restaurant tomorrow. So we walked towards the barn. Rob lit a few lights and then crossed his arms and leaned against one of the beams supporting the barn. The way he was looking at me, all intense and serious, kinda scared me in a way. I mean it's not everyday that the guy I loved or for that matter any guy comes knocking on my window in the middle of the night and tells me he needs to talk to me.

So I just stood there being very occurred. After about I don't know maybe five seconds of that I started to get mad. I mean I had better things to do then stand around a barn, which I must say wasn't the warmest, in the middle of the night and wait for a guy to start talking. I was tired and a little cold and the way Rob was looking at me really started to scare me so I said, "Rob what the hell do you want?"

He just smiled at me in that sexy way and said, "Do you remember the last time we were in my barn?"

He knew I would blush at that, that wasn't fair. "Yes I do Rob." I was really, really freaking out now. He took a step closer to me, and then another until we were just a few inches apart. I could feel his warm breath on my cheek; it was only then that I looked up at him and into his blue eyes. They were smiling! He was just doing this because he knew it made me nervous. So I said it again, "Rob what do you want? I mean it's a Saturday night and I'm tired and I did all this walking tonight with Ruth...."



"Shut up," and then he kissed me right on the lips. I know it's corny and all but if Rob hadn't but his arm around my waist I think I would have fallen because my knees had gone weak. Rob's kiss was so passionate, yet patient, it was hot, yet tender. It was the perfect kiss, well until he pulled away.
"Jess I need to tell you something." Rob said gazing down at me.

"Hum?" That was all I could handle to say.

"I love you."

I swear to you I almost died. My face must have told it all cause Rob lead me over to a wooden bench and sat me down. He crouched down in front of me and held my hands.

"Are you okay?"
"Yeah I'm fine but I don't think I understood what you just said, do you think you could say it again?"

"I love you, Mastriani, more than anything." When he said that I jumped onto him causing him to fall backwards onto the ground. I lay on top of him kissing and whispering sweet "I love yous" into his ears, until he said "Jess wait I haven't told you everything yet and I only think its fair."

"Great way to ruin the moment Rob." I said as I got off of him. I got up and sat on the bench waiting for whatever else he had to say. I admit I was scared. I mean what else would matter. He loved me, I loved him. There was nothing hiding between us now.

Man was I wrong.
