Chapter 7: Everything Will Change
This whole dating Julie thing totally rocks. My favorite thing? The post practice lingering in the locker room makeout session. Guy had assured me that it was very hot, and I'm inclined to agree. Julie against the lockers still all sticky sweaty from practice, probably the sexiest thing I've ever seen, felt, kissed and kissed and kissed.
"Adam," She whispers.
"Mm hm," I murmur into her neck.
"I have to shower." She says.
"Mm hm," I nod and kiss her again.
"I'm serious," She says.
"I have twenty more minutes," I say, she cocks her head and looks at me, "You promised me at least thirty minutes a day, and it's been ten minutes."
"What was lunchtime?" She looks at me, I kiss her.
"The was different," I say. She giggles.
"I have to go to the mall." She says, "Because I bought my fall ball dress based on what Ben would want me to wear and now I want to wear something for you."
"You'll look beautiful in anything," I shrug. She smiles. "But I like it when you wear green."
"Green it is," She smiles and kisses me. "Mm. I should go."
"Bye," I smile as she walks away. She's completely perfect. We're not even technically going to that dance together. She didn't want to blow off Tyler, which I totally get, and he's being really cool about everything, he even said that she and I can hang out most of the night, since he's not really into dancing. To be truthful neither am I, but Julie's really excited.
And finally its here. I lost my breath when Julie walked out of the dorm.
"What?" She says in this really adorably modest self deprecating way that just makes me want to kiss her.
"You're beautiful," I say. She blushes and I kiss her softly. I'm going to tell her I love her tonight. I haven't yet.
"Let's go," She smiles and pulls me along. We walk into the main hall and see everyone. We're pretty evenly greeted by all, well, there's one over the top greeting, I didn't really expect less.
"Oh my God!" Tammy squeals and hugs Julie, who looks highly uncomfortable, "You have no idea how sick we all were of hearing him talk about how in love with you he was!"
"So I've heard," She laughs.
"Thanks Tammy," I say, "I'm gonna go get some food." Julie laughs. I walk to the buffet.
"Hi," Bailey sees me. I smile.
"Hi," I say.
"I'm sorry," We both say at the same time and then laugh.
"I said really awful things to you," She shakes her head.
"Trust me," I say softly, "I deserved it."
"Yeah," She smiles, "You kind of did." I laugh. "Still, you were good to me."
"I like the dress," I shrug. She laughs.
"That was the intent," She nods. "Be happy Adam." She kisses me on the cheek, "You deserve it."
"You too," I smile. I walk back over to the group, Julie takes my hands and kisses me.
"You OK?" She asks.
"Yeah," I nod, "I'm fine." She smiles.
Later on, Julie and I are dancing, I think having her in my arms is probably my favorite thing in the whole world. She looks up at me and smiles.
"Can I just say," This is my moment, and I am taking it, "That I never in my whole life thought that this day would come."
"Whatever do you mean Adam?" She's teasing me. She drives me nuts. But I love every second of it.
"I mean, this," I smile, "Me slow dancing, with Julie Gaffney."
"We've slow danced before," She says. How could I forget? Last year's fall ball, when I came to her rescue when Scooter bailed on her.
"Yeah," I say, "But now I can do this," I lean down and kiss her. "I love you Julie." She doesn't say anything, just pushes her self closer to me. I'm not sure what that means, a moment passes.
"I love you too," She says and rests her head on my shoulder. Perfect, absolutely perfect.
It ends up being one those really great nights that no one's going to forget soon. After the dance we all end up in my basement for a little while. Once everyone heads out and it's just me and Julie she smiles and kisses me.
"Adam," She whispers softly into a second kiss. I nod. "When you said you loved me,"
"I meant it," I smile. She smiles. "I've always loved you." We kiss for another couple of minutes.
"I don't want to go back to the dorm," She whispers and smiles that I know something you don't smile of hers.
"OK," I nod, because for once I know what's behind that smile, "You can stay here."
"All by myself?" She mock mopes.
"Oh no," I smile, "That I won't hear of." We kiss again. "I love you." After tonight, everything is going to change. And I can't wait for it.
