A/N: This is the last chapter! See y'all at the bottom! This story was a lot of fun to write too!
Today was the last day of school and Degrassi was having a huge graduation ceremony. Everyone was sitting in the gym clad in their blue caps and gowns. Eli and I were sitting by eachother, he was holding my hand. Alli, Adam, Drew, and Fiona were all part of our graduating class. Finally it was time for diplomas. When everybody got their diploma we all threw our caps in the air and Eli kissed me.
"I love you Blue Eyes!" Eli yelled over the crowd of cheers.
"You too baby!" I yelled back.
"Let's go find CeCe and Bullfrog." He suggested. I nodded and Eli grabbed my hand and pulled me through the crowd of cheerful, newly graduated students.
"Congrats!" Bullfrog yelled when we found them.
"Thanks!" Eli said, then gave CeCe a weird look and she nodded.
"Well, come on Bullfrog. We have to go." CeCe said elbowing him.
"No we don't." Bullfrog said skeptically. "Aw, shit nevermind." He said then winked at Eli. Was something going on here? After CeCe and Bullfrog left, Eli and I were driving in Morty.
"I have to stop home real quick so I can get my phone." Eli said. I nodded and watched him make his way into the house. I decided to get my phone too. I reached to open the glove compartment. I wasn't prepared for what I saw next as a wave of anxiety washed over me. I stared at the box of condoms. Was he planning to sleep with me tonight? I grabbed my phone and shut the glove box quickly. "Ready?" Eli asked climbing back into the car and flashing me a smirk.
"Where are we going?"
"Dinner." He answered casually. Finally we arrived at The Dot which was where we were eating.
"I have to use the bathroom. I'll be back." I said and hurried to the bathroom. I stared at myself in the mirror. I looked like a mess. Who cares if Eli wanted to sleep with me? It was what I wanted right? It was both our first times, he was probably just as nervous as I was. I figured Eli was starting to worry so I left the bathroom and made my way to the table he was sitting at.
"Everything okay?" Eli asked.
"Yeah. Why do you ask?" I replied sitting down.
"Guess I'm just being paranoid."
"Perhaps." I joked and Eli laughed.
"Ready to order?"
"Yeah. I'll have what you're having." I said not really feeling very hungry.
"Are you sure nothing's wrong?" Eli asked concerned. I sighed, I couldn't keep up with the charade anymore.
"Yes. Something's wrong." I admitted shyly.
"What is it?" Eli prompted.
"I found something earlier... In the car." I said and began to play with my hands, not making eye contact.
"Oh... Those." Eli said quietly.
"Yeah." I replied, "Were you planning to use them?" I asked blushing.
"Maybe... I don't know. I just wanted them in case something did happen between us." Eli admitted.
"Because of the way I've been acting... I'm sorry Eli." I said.
"It's not your fault Clare. I didn't intentionally buy them. I was at the store picking up a few things for CeCe and I thought it might be a good idea to get them." Eli explained, shrugging it off like no big deal.
"Stupid hormones." I mumbled.
"Sure Clare, blame it on hormones. You know it's 'cause I'm sexy." Eli joked and I let out a dry laugh.
"Oh yeah Eli. You hit that one spot on." I replied smiling.
"Knew it!" Eli chimed and poked me in my sides. I giggled, he knew that was my tickle spot.
"Stop it!" I said inbetween giggles. People were starting to stare at us.
"Say I'm sexy!" Eli demanded, continuously poking me.
"Okay you win! You're sexy!"
"Ha. Told you." He said smugly, finally pulling his tickling hands away.
"Well let's eat!" I said blushing madly, and changed the subject. After dinner and a movie Eli and I finally made our way back home. Eli unlocked the door and we walked in.
"CeCe and Bullfrog aren't here. They wanted to give us some privacy. That's why they were acting so strange earlier." Eli chuckled.
"That's nice of them." I said absentmindly, nerves eating away at me. I knew tonight was the night. We were going to give ourselves to eachother. He led me upstairs to the bedroom.
"Are you sure you want this?" Eli asked, those emerald eyes burning into mine.
"I've never been more sure of anything Eli." I replied, my skin flushing a new tint of pink.
"If you want me to stop just say so." Eli said.
"Okay." Eli took my fragile hands in his and began to place a sweet butterfly kisses up and down my fingers. My breath got hitched in my throat and I held my breath. "You're holding your breath, it's making me nervous." Eli murmured.
"I am nervous." I breathed.
"Clare, you do what your body feels. Don't hold back." Eli smirked.
"Then you don't hold back either." I challenged. He began to kiss up and down my arms, leaving trails of fire everywhere his lips touched my skin. We slowly began to strip eachother, until we were both completely naked and exposed to each more secrets now.
"Are you sure you want this?" Eli asked all too caring.
"Yes Eli. I've been sure for a really long time." I answered and that's when our lips met for a kiss and he entered me slowly. The pain only lasted for a few minutes, and Eli treated me with the most gentle touches. I gave him my everything as we performed the dance that so many other lovers have done before. Every thrust was a new sensation, and he kept going until we both reached our climaxes. I cried out his name, and he cried out mine.
"I love you Clare."
"I love you too."
