9. A Decision

Eric flipped the boat back over. He climbed back on and then helped me up. We rowed back towards the woods.

"You know I had fun today," Eric told me while we were drying off.

My notepad was soaked so I mouthed "Me too." An awkward silence fell over us.

"Well I better get going," Eric announced breaking the silence.

I mouthed "Thank you for everything" and shut the door. I stood there for a moment thinking about what happened today. Was I really falling for him?

That night I dreamed that I was at prom, dancing with Eric and I was happy. We locked eyes. I stared into his big blue eyes, leaned in and kissed him. I woke up suddenly and sat up in my bed, thinking about my dream. I threw the covers off, got dressed, grabbed a pen and notebook, and rushed out the door to Eric`s house. I rang the doorbell. Eric opened the door, holding back max.

"Ariel?" he asked surprised.

I smiled and nodded.

"What are you doing here?" he asked stepping outside.

"Yes," I answered.

"Your, voice its back! And what do u mean yes?"

I lean in and kissed him.

"Yes I`ll take you back."

His eyes got wide and he broke into a smile. Then he kissed me back.
