Chapter 17: Nicole- There’s No Way I’m Saying No
It was the best kiss I had ever had. Well, it was the only kiss I had ever had but still it was pretty good.
It was short and sweet. No tongue or anything. Just a simple kiss. As soon as his lips left mine I wanted more.
I wrapped my arms around his neck and pulled him in for another one. His lips were so soft and warm. I never wanted to stop kissing him.
He smiled. “You have no clue how long I’ve wanted to do that,” he told me.
I paused taking in everything that had just happened. “So, was I the girl you were in love with?” I asked.
He laughed. “Isn’t that pretty obvious?”
I bit my lip. He was so cute. And he was still laying over me which usually would make me feel uncomfortable but with Mike it just felt…right.
He was looking at me as if he was looking straight into my soul.
I playfully pushed him off of me and laughed. “What are you looking at?”
“You,” he said.
“You’re making me feel all self-conscious and stuff.”
I sat up.“Oh my gosh, Emia is gonna freak.”
“Well she already knows that I like you,” Mike said quietly.
“You told her and you didn’t tell me??”
“Well she kinda figured it out. And she wanted to help and you know you can’t say no to Mia,” he explained.
That’s why he’s was at Mia’s house the other day. It all makes sence now.
“So how long has it been?” I asked him.
“How long has what been?” he said confused.
“How long have you liked me?”
He hesitated. “The night your dad left,” he admitted.
That took me by surprise.
“What? Are you sure because that night I was crying nd I woke you up and took your bed,” I said confused.
“Yeah I’m sure. I just saw you in a new light. It was the first time I had seen you cry. You looked amazing.”
“You are so weird.”
He laughed. “What about you? How long have you liked me?”
“When you started going out with Traci.”
Mike smiled. “Ohh. Someone was a little jealous.”
I blushed. I remember how much my heart would sink every time I saw them together.
“Do you remember when you gave her that necklace?”
“I literally hated her guts at that point. Thinking about it now, it was really stupid. ButI just couldn’t stand the thought of you with her.”
“I could tell," he said casually.
“I could see it in your face. Every time I talked about her you looked so upset. But I didn’t pay any attention to it then.”
Crap! He could tell. I need to work on hiding my emotions.
We were quiet again. But it wasn’t an awkward silence. It was nice and peaceful.
“Will you,” he stopped and took a deep breath, “Will you be my girlfriend?”
I smiled. “Of course I will.” There was no way that I was saying no.
A/N: I know most of you are like "FINALLY!' Trust me I was too. Hope you liked it!
