"Aud?" I called into my apartment. After our first year at college together we decided to spend the summer in Colby. She was packing the moment I even mentioned the idea. After waiting about thirty seconds of not getting a response I decided to take matters into my own hands and find her for myself.
After searching the kitchen the living room and the bathroom I came upon the closed bedroom door. I knocked lightly and got no answer. I opened the door lightly and poked my head in. She was sleeping on my bed.
I couldn't help but to smile. She was so cute when she slept. She looked so peaceful and young, so unlike how she attempted to act at all other moments. I walked slowly over to the bed so I didn't make any noise that would wake her up and stroked her cheek gently. Her face lifted up to my hand and I pulled away fearful that she would wake up.
Just then I realized how hungry I was since I hadn't eaten anything since 6 in the morning and Auden had less than I did. So I decided I would try my best to make a memorable meal for our first night back.
With a quick kiss on the forehead I left Auden sleeping to do my best to find some food. It wasn't until I reached the completely bare cupboards that I realized I haven't set foot in this house in months so there wouldn't be any food to eat in the first place.
After a short trip to the grocery store I was back in the kitchen watching a pot of spaghetti cook thinking about the first time I had seen Auden. Or I should say nearly ran over. I was so busy in my thoughts that I didn't even hear her come out of the bedroom.
"Morning," she said sleepily wrapping her arms around me from behind and resting her head on my back. I put my hands on top of hers.
"Morning? It's nearly 7:30," I said laughing a little. She shrugged and wrapped her arms around me even tighter. I turned around and took her in my arms kissing the top of her head. I rocked back and forth and she buried her face into my chest. We stood like this for God knows how long but it wasn't long because the next thing I hear was Auden.
"You know that pasta of yours should be done by now," she said peeking over my shoulder. I snickered.
"You hungry?" I asked taking the finished spaghetti out of the pot and into a bowl.
"Starving," she replied. She took out two plates and got a fork and knife out for each of us and set them onto the table. A few minutes later both of us were busy eating slurping the slightly over-cooked food.
I couldn't help but noticing how beautiful she was. I sat there studying her; taking in the how long her eyelashes were and how she ate her food so neatly. How her hair flowed down perfectly even though she just spent the last few hours sleeping. She looked up at me?
"What are you looking at?" She started getting conscientious and looked down to see if she had something on her shirt.
"You, silly," I couldn't help but grinning like an idiot.
"Me?" she started blushing. She was so cute when she blushed.
"Yes. You," I replied simply, still grinning.
"Why?" she stared at me like this was the most ridiculous concept she had ever heard of. How could she be so ignorant to how beautiful she was?
"Because…," I spoke quieter. She would think it was stupid if I actually told her why.
"Eli?" she asked. I could tell she was growing more concerned by the second.
"You're just," I paused a moment and took a deep breath, "You're really beautiful." I let it all out with one breath. I held my breath and looked down. She'll think I've gone crazy now. I held my breath and looked at her. She was blushing and looking down, too. I smirked at my stupidity. Didn't girls love to hear that type of stuff?
Looking at both of our empty plates I proceeded to stand up and walk over to her. She looked up at me blushing even more.
"Why are you blushing so much?" I pulled her out of her seat and poked her nose.
"I'm not that pretty," she said shaking her head. I stood there dumb-founded.
"Of course you are. You're one of the most beautiful people I have ever been fortunate enough to meet," She smiled and didn't press further on the subject. On that note I looked at her for no more than a second and picked her up bridal style.
"E-li!" she started squirming around in a poor attempt to get down.
"Au-den!" I said mimicking her tone. She stopped squirming and pouted.
"Eli, put me down," she protested.
"Don't think I can do that, love," I said smirking. She rolled her eyes and snuggled into my chest. "That's more like it," I said and started carrying her toward the bedroom a few feet away.
I sat down on the bed and positioned her to sit in my lap. She leaned down and kissed me gently. It was slow and sweet but eventually it got faster and more passionate. She started pushing against me so I laid down on the bed and wrapped my arms around her waist and moving up and down her back. She pulled back and kissed my nose.
"Guess what" she said excitedly. This was the last thing I had ever expected her to say at a point in time like this.
"What?" I asked slowly, unsure what to expect at this point.
"I love you," she said plainly smiling down at me. I grinned and ran my fingers through her hair.
"I love you, too," I said slowly, trying to remember every possible detail of this moment. After a few minutes I was positioned on top of her kissing her as much as I could. Her fingers were entwined in my hair and my hand was going up and down her leg while the other was locked firmly around her waist. This was going to be the best summer ever.
I need reviews if I'm gunna write a chapter two. Any comments or constructive criticism are welcome.
