Cheers. Peace out. Katie

We were both young when I first saw you.
I close my eyes and the flashback starts:
I'm standing there on a balcony in summer air.

See the lights, see the party, the ball gowns.
See you make your way through the crowd
and say hello;

Little did I know
That you were Romeo; you were throwing pebbles,
And my daddy said, "Stay away from Juliet."
And I was crying on the staircase,
begging you, 'Please, don't go.'"

And I said,
"Romeo, take me somewhere we can be alone.
I'll be waiting; all there's left to do is run.
You'll be the prince and I'll be the princess
It's a love story - baby just say 'Yes.'"

So I sneak out to the garden to see you.
We keep quiet 'cause we're dead if they knew.
So close your eyes; escape this town for a little while.
'Cause you were Romeo, I was a scarlet letter,
And my daddy said "Stay away from Juliet,"
But you were everything to me; I was begging you, 'Please, don't go,'"

And I said,
"Romeo, take me somewhere we can be alone.
I'll be waiting; all there's left to do is run.
You'll be the prince and I'll be the princess
It's a love story - baby just say 'Yes.'

Romeo save me - they're tryin' to tell me how to feel;
This love is difficult, but it's real.
Don't be afraid; we'll make it out of this mess.
It's a love story - baby just say "Yes.'"

Oh.

I got tired of waiting,
Wondering if you were ever comin' around.
My faith in you was fading
When I met you on the outskirts of town,

And I said,
"Romeo save me - I've been feeling so alone.
I keep waiting for you but you never come.
Is this in thy head? I don't know what to think-"

He knelt to the ground and pulled out a ring and said,
"Marry me, Juliet - you'll never have to be alone.
I love you and that's all I really know.
I talked to your dad - go pick out a white dress;
It's a love story - baby just say 'Yes.'"

Oh, oh.

We were both young when I first saw you...

Sneaking out had proved to be much easier than she had thought.

Mark had crashed out early, claiming that he had college preparation tomorrow. Allie had been on the phone to her boyfriend and her mom was in her study like she always was when she was home, only now Meredith wasnt sure whether she was actually working or thinking about how the first meeting went with her family and Carolines - her mothers lover.

Meredith had been lucky when she had climbed from her roof into the tree, and then down the old tree house steps. She had then jogged the few blocks to the school football field.

She had arrived to se a small light in the middle of the field. She could only pray that it was Alex because the light didnt really reveal much. He had said that he was already here, and now she could only hope that it was him.

Walking cautiously towards the figure, it wasnt until she was close enough that she could see. The light flickered onto his face and she let out a small sigh of relief that it was indeed Alex.

She ran to him, glad to see his after having a whole summer away.

He had beamed up at her when she had tackled hi, pushing him back on the blanket.

"You should go away more often." he joked. "I've never see you so excited to see me."

Meredith giggled as she leaned in and kissed him with all that she had.

Alex was surprised by the display, but enjoyed the kiss and the wondrous affects Meredith was having on his body.

He rolled them over, catching her body beneath hi as he looked down upon her with a mixture of emotions. "I love you Mer" he told her, completely overwhelmed by everything he was feeling. "and god i missed you this summer. It's been hell." he said as he kissed her again.

Merediths hands then moved over ALex's head before running down his back. She grabbed the base of his shirt before pulling it up, her hands running happily over his muscular chest.

Alex was grateful that the lack of light was hiding his bruises.

Meredith then pulled the shirt completely over his head before she began to remove hers.

"Mer?" Alex sounded nervously. Their relationship never having felt so intense or having been at this level before.

"I love you Alex." she said softly. "I'm ready for this."

"You sure?" Alex asked as his hands traced the lines of her milky coloured body.

Meredith nodded as she moved her hands up to grab his head as she pulled him back down to kiss her.

Alex smiled as his lips moved over hers. He had dreamed about this moment for a long time now and couldnt help but be glad that it was Meredith that he was doing it with. "I love you too." he told her as his hands trailed down to the button of her shorts, fumbling his way towards consummation.
