Streaks of morning sun leaked at my windows, the settling sounds of birds chirping at my window eased me. I wanted myself to be content, but I couldn’t help but waver on the endless thoughts in my head. Were we together now? Was it good for him too? Was I his first as well?
No. Definitely not. Absently biting my lip, I let out a soft breath. My fingers tapped over my phone as I laid over my blanket. He dropped me off about an hour ago due to having to catch a class and I still didn’t have a text. I didn’t want to wait around like a teenage girl, but it was almost unbearable not to.
Hey cutie, there’s a bonfire tonight and I want to take you and introduce you to some of my friends. Come?
He texted me! I happy clapped like an idiot before trying to think of the perfect thing to say. My stomach twisted with excitement and nervousness at the same time. Not only was he still interested, but the thought of him bringing me around his friends made me smile. Gliding my hands over the keys, I quickly tapped a response.
Yeah, sounds fun. Just text me the details. I have a class in a bit, but it’s only an hour. And I think you’re cute too.
I covered my face daring to press send before I backed out. The last sentence was lame, but at least it was something right? The grumbling in my stomach created volume in the room and I decided to wander to get some breakfast. Half of me was excited to see him, but the other half of me was nervous and uncomfortable with the idea of being around his close friends. Hell, I was awkward and shy but I’d do just about anything for another day with Derrick.
