I'm really trying not to let the lack of reviews discourage me. I'm writing because I like to write, and I guess that's all I can do right? Thanks for all those who did review, though. You make me very happy.
There may be errors, as I am not perfect.
It's date night. :)
My day was long, maybe that's because I was anxious. Maybe it was just because the hospital was having a slow day. Whatever it was, I had nothing but time to think.
I was taking Bella out tonight.
Kayden's mom, Bella. Olivia's day-care director, Bella. Pretty in the not obvious way, Bella. Made my palms sweat, Bella.
I was freaking out.
Which was kind of irrational, I guess. I mean, this is just Bella.
Just Bella my ass.
So when seven o'clock rolled I knocked on her door and I rubbed my seriously sweaty palms on my jeans. Like a fifteen year old boy would had never been on a date.
She answered the door, looking all hot in a blue dress that look perfect set against her skin. It was sexy in the not-obvious way; it didn't look like it was painted on her skin and it hit right under her knee. On Bella, it was gorgeous. Only anyone else it would have been plain looking.
"Wow. You're...beautiful." I said.
"Don't sound so shocked there Eddie," she said smiling and walking out the door.
"No...I...No. I wasn't t-t-t-trying to sound shocked it's just that...I didn't expect..." I stuttered out like the complete asshole I was. Bella stopped me and put her index finger over my lips.
"Sssh," she said smiling.
"I'm sorry," I said, her finger still over my lips. She just smiled and removed her finger and grabbed my hand and dragged me to the car. By the time I'd taken my third step I'd composed myself and picked up my pace to get there and get her door for her. She smiled at me and she sat down in her seat. I shut her door and ran/excitedly walked to the other side. I hopped in and pulled out, ready to get out of her drive way.
"Where are we going?" She asked
"Uh. I'm not saying." She just smiled at me.
"I don't really like surprises," she said. My heart then proceeded to jump to my throat.
"Well, um, we don't have to go there...I guess we could go somewhere else? Um, I haven't been out to eat much so you're gonna-"
"No, Edward! Just, stop talking for a second." She said. I shut my mouth and looked at her."It's fine. Let's go to wherever it was you had planned, okay? I'm sure I'll like it."
"Okay." I said.
I am such a fucking pussy. Why was I acting like this? Why couldn't I stop being an asshole?
"How was your day?" Bella asked.
"It was okay. It seemed like it dragged 'cause I was anxious for tonight."
"You...were anxious to go out with me?" She asked her cheeks turning a bright pink.
"Did I say that out loud?" I asked, my cheeks probably turning a deeper shade of red than hers were.
"Yeah, you did," she turned to face me then, smiling a huge contagious smile. I had to smile back.
"Yeah, I was anxious." She laughed at that.
"You're cute." She said, blushing again.
"Um, thanks I think. I don't think I've ever been called cute before." I said. Smiling. She was the cute one.
"What? Is beautiful more your thing?" She asked.
"No, never been called that either. I've been told I have a 'panty dropping' smile though," I said turning to smile at her full on. "Is it working?" I asked through my huge smile.
She looked at me serious for a second, and then burst out kind of laugh that makes tears form in your eyes and your stomach hurt.
She was beautiful.
"You're crazy, Edward Cullen. Seriously Apeshit."
"Wait just a second. Did Bella just cuss?" I asked, totally shocked.
"Yes sir, I just did." She said, smiling."Fuck, shit, damn."
"Whoa, easy there, sailor," I said. Smiling at her trying to think about my grandma in a bikini to get the raging hard on to go away. That shit was hot.
Conversation was comfortable after that. We talked about anything and everything. It made the thirty minute drive to the tiny park I found one day when I was just riding around easier. We got out once I had parked in a parking space. I grabbed the fancy basket out of the backseat and told Bella to follow me.
"So, a picnic?" Bella asked as we finally made it over to our a spot and set down the small blanket. I sat down then, noticing the grass was wet. Bella sat down and noticed the same thing.
"Oh great," I muttered, thinking about how fucking fabulous this was. I looked over at Bella, waiting for her to be pissed. Her face was red. I shook my head, ready to hang up my coat and call it a night. Then- she started laughing. One of the beautiful laughs famous people fake on television shows. A full on, belly laugh.
"Uh, what's um, Bella?" I said very confused.
"Our butts are going to be soaked," she said, still laughing. I looked at her face. She wasn't mad. Not even a little bit.
"You know, you're kind of weird."
Foot, meet mouth.
That sobered her right up. She stopped laughing almost instantly.
"No, I didn't mean it in a bad way! I promise. You're a good weird."
"A good weird?" she asked.
"Yes. Olivia's mother would have marched right back into my car and demanded I take her home if this would have happened to her. I...like your kind of weird. Although I do feel bad for ruining such a beautiful dress." I said, smiling to make sure she knew I meant what I was saying.
"Oh, well she sounds, um, lovely..." she said, then laughed, "Laugh would be so boring and way too dramtic if I had fits about little things like this. It's just water, it'll be perfectly fine." She smiled back at me.
We ate. We talked. We ate more. I learned more about her in that night then I'd probably ever known about Tayna. Bella was open. She told me she trusted me and I did her. She was the easiest person I'd ever talked to. Our conversation could have gone on for hours and hours. We finally packed up when it was very dark and headed towards my car. We hoped in and drove home.
When we pulled into her driveway my palms were sweaty. I wanted to kiss her. I needed to kiss her. Would she want me to kiss her? Does she even like me?
"So, I had a really good time tonight, Edward," she said.
"Me too. You think you'd want to do it again?" I asked. Stepping closer to her. It was now or fucking never. I felt like a sniper, waiting to find the right moment to shoot.
Holy hell. Did I just compare kissing Bella to shooting someone?
Hell yes I did.
"I'd love that, Edward."
That sealed it for me. She wanted this just as bad as I did. I leaned into her real close, going in for the 'kill'. Her lips got closer and closer and after what felt like an eternity her soft lips were pressed against mine.
What was your first date like? Horrible? Wonderful? Tell me about it, if you'd like. I love reading all your stories. :)
