Chapter 27: Summer Dance
Amy and her parents left a few days after they were rescued. They said that they hoped to see us soon but it wouldn't be because they were kidnapped. Everyone agreed and said that even under the circumstances, it was nice to see them again. Before they left, they explained how some guy dressed in black came to their house and knocked them out and when they woke up they were in the building where Cody was. Mom, Matt, Mr. Walkins, and Ty all said that was pretty much the same with them. And now, everything is pretty much back to normal. Ty, Matt, and I are caught up on the work we missed when we didn't go to back to school after break ended. We've been back in school for quite a few weeks now and it's like we were never gone.
School gets out in about three weeks. Then, Ty and I will be seniors and Matt will graduate and leave for college. Soon, we will be going back to school and Matt will be leaving for college with Sadie. He still hasn't told Mom that he is planning to go out of state. I'm still kinda mad at him for that but I know that there is no way to convince him to stay now. Once he sets his mind to something, it is almost impossible to change.
Next week is the end of the year dance and I still haven't picked out my dress! I'm so worried that I'm not going to find a good one and that Ty won't be able to find a tux. I mean, I wouldn't care if he showed up in sweats but I know he wants to find a tux so he looks nice. At least, that's what he told me.
Right now, I am sitting on my bed. I'm slowly flipping through different clothing magazines to find a dress that I like. Then, maybe I can find it at the mall or one like it. My phone starts ringing and I answer it quickly.
"Hey there, babe. What are you doing?" he says in his sexy voice. I smile at the sound filling my ears.
"Hey, Ty. I'm trying to find a dress for the dance," I answer, flipping another page.
"You still haven't found one? I thought for sure you and one of your friends would have gone to the mall by now and spent the whole day shopping and looking. I mean, is that what normal girls do?" he teases.
"Ty, are you calling me not normal?"
"Um, no. Okay, yes. But I happen to love not normal. It makes you unique," he says sweetly.
"Okay, Tyler. You can stop kissing up now," I tease.
"I wish I was kissing you right now," he says seductively. I blush and he laughs quietly. "You're blushing aren't you?" Of course, this only casuses me to blush harder. He knows me to well. "Hmm, I knew it."
"Shut up," I mutter. He laughs into the phone.
"Fine. So, when are you getting a dress then?" he asks.
"I'm going to the mall tomorrow."
"Cool. Where is Matt getting his tux?"
"Um, some store in the mall. Sadie is going with us tomorrow to make sure she approves of it," I answer. "Have you gotten yours yet?"
"Nope. I was going to see if you could ask Matt for me," he responds. I tell him told on and I run and ask Matt. He gives me then name of the little store and I repeat it back to Ty. "Thanks. So, you excited for the dance?"
"I guess. I'm not even sure that I'm going." He is quiet for a minute and I smile, happy that he is falling for my plan.
"Um, what do you mean?" he asks curiously.
"Well, Matt is going with Sadie and I don't want to go without out a date. I guess maybe I could ask that kid Sam from my math class. Do you think he would want to go with me?" I say suriously.
"Wait! Stop for a minute! What do you mean you don't have a date? And why are you asking Sam?" he says in a worried tone.
"I mean that no one has asked me. And I said I might ask Sam, and I would because he is nice and kinda cute." There is no response. "Ty? You still there?"
"What do you mean he is kinda cute?" he asks quickly.
"Well, you know. He has nice hair and pretty eyes." I can hear Ty's breath speed up and I have to try hard to keep myself from laughing. This is going too easily.
"Um, but I thought we were going together. You know, because we are dating. But if you'd rather go with Sam because you like him then I guess you could and we could take a break or something. I could ask some-"
"Ty! Stop rambling! I don't want to take a break," I explain.
"But, then why aren't you going to the dance with me?" he asks quietly. I hit myself head in annoyance. Wow! Boys can be so dumb! Does he not get that I'm trying to get him to ask me and that I'm teasing him?
"Because you never asked me," I respond.
"Oh. Well, I got to go. I'll see you Monday." And then, he was gone. What? He's not going to ask me? Maybe he doesn't want to go with me. I slam my phone shut and stare at the wall. That was not what I had pictured when I came up with this plan to tease him. I sigh and try to concentrate on dress shopping.
Finally, I am able to focus on the beautiful and sexy gowns on the page. Then, the doorbell rings. I jump up and run down the hall. I unlock the dead bolt and open the door. Suddenly, someone's lips are pressed against mine and is kissing me with passion. I recongnize Ty immediatly by the way he smells and the feel of his lips on mine and his hands sliding around my waist, pulling my body against him. I push back from him though.
"Ty! Do you want my mom or George or Matt to come down the hall and see us?" I ask. He rolls his eyes but takes his hands off my waist. I notice that he has his arm behind his back. I tilt my head and look at him curiously. He pulls a bundle of flowers from behind his back. Yellow roses. They symbolozie happiness and friendship. They are also my favorite flower ever.
"Kaitlin Smith, will you please be my date to the Summer Dance?" he asks sweetly, handing the roses to me. I smile and smell the roses. They are fresh and smell perfect. I close the door behind me and take a step towards him.
"I thought you would never ask Tyler Walkins." I slid my arms around his neck and touch my lips to his. He smiles against my lips before kissing me back. Sadly, he pulls away right then.
"I wish you liked red roses more than yellow. Yellow just means friends but red means love. And I happen to love you," he whispers in my ear. He slides his hands around my waist and pulls me closer. I rest my head on his chest.
"But yellow also means happiness. And I'm never happier than when I'm with you. Also, you are my best friend and my amazing, sweet boyfriend," I reply.
"Hmm, I'm starting to like yellow roses a little more." I laugh and smile up at him. "Take a walk with me." I nod and he intertines my fingers with his and we walk down the street quietly. He leads me to the end of our street and then pulls me behind the bushes by the stop sign. We sit on the ground and he slides his hands around my waist. "There now your family can't see us."
I smile, knowing what is coming. He moves his face closer to mine and kisses me gently. I kiss him back and run my fingers across his chest. His kisses become harder and hungrier but still gentle. I crawl forward so I am sitting on his lap and he holds me tighter. His sweet breath surrounds me and only we exist. Our tongues dance and I moan quietly. He shivers with pleasure, holding me tighter with each kiss. I move my hands up his back and tangle them in his brown hair. We are breathing heavily but don't niether of us make a move to pull away. "I love you," he whispers into my mouth before putting his lips to mine again. I pull back just a centimeter.
"I love you, too." He smiles and keeps his lips on mine. I start shaking at how happy and perfect this is. His lips move to my neck and he places gentle, passionate kisses on my bare skin. I shiver as his breath sends chills down my spine. He stays there for a minute and moans quietly. Then, he kisses my chin, my cheek, and finally finding his way back to my mouth. His hand comes up and rests on my cheek. We are physically connected as well as emotionally. I slowly open my eyes and find him staring back. His blue eyes are dancing more than ever before. They are filled with passion and desire. I close my eyes again and our lips start moving in sync again. It seems like it has been forever, but not nearly long enough to satisfy me.
Ty pulls away but keeps his forehead resting on mine. He reaches up and untangles my hands from his hair. I blush, causing him to smile so perfectly and make my heart melt. It takes all my strength to keep my lips away from his. He holds my hands on his chest for a minute. Then, he drops them and stands up. He offers me his hand, and I take it. We walk back to my house in silence.
The rest of the week flies by. I found a dress that I think Ty will like and he told me that he found a tux. Tonight, Matt and I are going to ride to the dance together and meet Sadie and Ty there. Finally, we get to the school. I give Matt a hug good-bye and tell him that I'm going to find Ty. I hurry inside and scan the crowd for him. I spot him standing by the food table at the same time he sees me. He says good-bye to the girl he is talking to and throws a cup of punch in the trash as he passes by it. He walks quickly. I'm to stunned to move.
Ty looks amaizing in his black tux and tie. You can tell that he is in shape and he looks perfect. He reaches me and gives me a quick kiss. He steps back and looks me over. He smiles at my tight, strapless sky blue dress. He takes my hand and spins me around to see the back. When I am facing him again, he is still smiling. "Wow. You look amazing, babe. I can't believe how lucky I am to have you as my girlfriend."
I blush and avoid his eyes. "You look great too," I whisper. He laughs and lifts my head gently.
"No need to be embarrassed about looking beautiful. If anything, you should be ashamed of teasing all these other guys by showing up like this. It's going to torture them and make their dates feel bad," he teases.
"Whatever," I shrug.
"So, would you like to dance?" he asks sweetly. I smile and nod. He puts an arm around my waist and leads me to the dance floor. He puts his arms around me and I wrap my arms around his neck. He slowly starts swaying and I rest my head on his chest. We twirl around with our class for more than four hours. Ty never leaves my side and always is holding my hand or has an arm around my waist. It feels perfect with him standing next to me.
It is so amazing, that I don't want the night to end. Matt finds us after he walks Sadie to her car and Ty tells him that he'll bring me home in a little while. Matt nods and tells Ty good night. Ty leads me outside and opens the passenger door of his truck for me. I climb in and he closes it behind me and walks around to the drivers side. He climbs in and starts the engine. It is silent as he drives to wherever he is going. But it isn't an awkard silence. It is more of a comfortable silence because we are just enjoying being in each other's presence. I lean against him and he takes one hand off the wheel occasionally to rub my leg.
He stops in front of the park. I should of known that we would end up here. We climb out of the car and he leads me to our bench. The light is dim and casts a soft glow around us. I sigh heavily.
"What's wrong, love?" he asks.
"Nothing's wrong. I was just thinking about everything that has happened in this same spot. We've spent so much time here this past year. We were always here talking and the last time we were here was when I had to meet up with Cody White so you could be set free. Although I was terrified, I was so happy to finally see you again and know that you were safe," I explain.
"Yeah, a lot has happened since I met you but I wouldn't change any of it. But I could have done without that whole shoebox thing. I still consider that last night a bad memory," he replies.
"Tonight will be our first good night we've spent here in a long time."
"Yep." He pulls me closer to him and we lean towards each other and our lips touch. It is the perfect way to end a perfect night with the perfect guy.
