When we arrived at our destination, I thought my heart was going to pop right out of my chest. I had only ever had one boyfriend in high school, and we were like best friends for months before we ever even had out first kiss. So it was safe to say I was not very skilled in the relationship department, and from the looks of this guy, there was no possible way that he wasn’t. I did my best to hide my utter shyness…ya I don’t think it worked to well.
So in proper Olivine style, I watched from afar. Everything he did was smooth, he may have been the coolest guy I had ever met. Everything about him oozed sexiness. I found out later, he was actually a lifeguard. No surprise there with that hot bod.
I sat on a seat close to the shuffleboards for most of the night, running different scenarios in my head, of how I wanted to approach Mr. yummy. Each one ended with me in the same place though, there on the seat still lacking the guts to get up and talk to him. Why now! I had been doing pretty good at keeping my shyness at bay until we stepped inside. Gah! I started to get extremely frustrated with myself.
As usual my mind had drifted into a far off place and it took a surprise voice to snap me out of it.
Totally did not even hear him when he sat down.
“Hey.” I smiled back.
“You look all alone over here.”
“Heh ya. Just watching you guys shuffle away over there.”
Before I knew it, he had rested his head on my shoulder, and I wasn’t sure quite what to do. He was so sweet, but I couldn’t get my eyes off of Melon, so I patted his head with my hand and then I excused myself to the bathroom.
“I need to uh…be right back.” I explained as I escaped to the ladies room.
Once I was inside, I heard the door open and in came Penny. The look on her face was super serious to say the least.
“So what do you think of Melon?”
“He’s so cute!” I gushed.
“Ya? Well good, cus he is totally into you!”
“OMB ya! You need to go talk to him, he really wants to get to know you.”
Suddenly those butterflies were back with a vengeance. Amazingly though I fought through them and headed back out to the main room.
The moment I had exited the bathroom, Melon was on his way over to me. He flashed me that winning smile and I was his. We spent the rest of the evening talking and laughing and just really enjoying each others company. I even got to sit next to him in the car, I decided to borrow Tiber’s little move and I dropped my head onto Melon’s shoulder. Berry did he smell good.
We all migrated back to Melon and Tiber’s place for the rest of the evening, and set up on the couch playing video games…
and eventually popping in a movie. Melon and I sat together snuggling on the couch and I was in heaven.
It took till almost 3 am for me to realize, that we were going to be staying the night at our present location and not back at Haze’s. I was totally fine with that until Melon offered for me to come sleep in his room.
Everything froze. Sleeping in a guys room…just me and him? Oh man this was some pretty heavy stuff. I weighed my options and after obviously not enough deliberation, I foolishly agreed.
Penny and I went down to the car to get our things, and then I went to the bathroom to change. I slipped on my pj’s and brushed my teeth. I stared at myself in the mirror, still in disbelief. Was I really going to do this? I spit out the paste and rinsed. Yup. I guess I was. I slid my toothbrush back into my bag and headed towards Melon’s room. When I opened the door, I saw him sitting on his bed.
He motioned for me to come sit by him, so I dropped my bag by the door and slid in next to him. He put his arm around me and I swear my heart was going jump right out of chest. Tingles shot down my spine and scooted closer.
Next thing I know we are locked in a kiss that seriously made my knees buckle. I pressed my lips hard against his, I couldn’t get enough, each kiss was getting more and more intense.
But when he tried to slide the strap of my cami off, I froze up. I pulled away and readjusted my shirt.
“Yes, I just don’t think I am ready for that.”
“Oh, no problem.”
That was all I needed to say. He pulled me into his arms and we laid on the bed above the covers. We talked for almost another hour, until my eyes just wouldn’t stay open a moment longer, and I drifted off to sleep.
He was a true gentlemen and I had officially spent my first night with a boy.
The next morning, Melon and Haze walked us out to the car. From the look on Penny and Hazes faces, it was pretty obvious that seeing each other again had sparked up some old feelings. They said their goodbyes.
Melon and I said ours, I got one last kiss, before I was waving goodbye through the passenger side window.
That was when the guilt set in double time, and once again I felt ill. If my parents ever find out about this, I would have been in so much trouble, and would probably never get to go back to BP ever again. So I vowed to myself then and there this would be our little secret. What happens in Briocheport stays in Briocheport.
