A few minutes later we're sitting at a booth together in McDonalds, finishing our fries when Truly Madly Deeply comes on the radio in the restaurant. I realize that we're the only ones in the whole place besides the workers and Alex stands up. I look up at him and he holds his hand out to me. " We didn't get to dance at the actual dance." he says with a smirk and I take his hand. He spins me to the middle of the restaurant and puts one arm around my waist and the other takes my hand. I put my free arm on his shoulder and he sways us gently back and forth. He starts singing the chorus to me and I put both of my arms around his neck and lay my head on his chest. Suddenly the music gets louder like someone turned it up and when we are turned enough so that we can see the main counter, I see two girls in uniforms staring at us as if we're the most precious thing in the world. They slowly fade away, and then it's just me and Alex. Alex hums the song quietly in my ear and reaches his hand up to push a curl away from my face. I look up at him and he leans down and kisses me, pulling me tight against him. That familiar, yet always bright spark runs through me, leaving a tingling sensation in all of my bones. Our lips move in sync with each other and before I know it the song is over and we're still dancing. We reluctantly pull away, realizing it's 10:30 and head outside to his truck again. He takes me back to my house and parks his truck in the driveway. We still have five minutes until eleven o clock. I move into the middle seat, putting my arms around Alex's neck and he kisses me. His arms go around my waist and i put my hands in his hair and tug gently. He groans and bites my bottom lip gently, breathing hard. And then we kiss like the world depends on it. I pull away, remembering I have to get inside, and it's 10:59. I look at Alex, both of us breathing heavily, and grin. " I have to get inside," I tell him, opening the door. " No," he says, pulling me back and burying his face in my hair. He plants a kiss on my neck and then trails kisses up my jaw to my lips. " I have to," I say, shuddering as his lips touch my neck again. " Fine." he says and I slip out of the seat. " Bye, Alex," I say. " Bye Liyah," he replies and I jog inside, opening the door just as the clock hits eleven. I wave at Alex as he drives off and I shut the door behind me. " How was the dance?" my mom asks with a grin, standing up from the couch. " Um.. Good. It was fun." I tell her and she nods and comes over to me. She puts her arms around me and leans close to my ear. " Fix your lipstick before your father sees," she says with a wink. I blush and fix it at the corners and above my lip. " Goodnight," she calls over her shoulder as she makes her way to her room. My dad comes over too and kisses my forehead. " Goodnight, sweetheart," he says. " Goodnight dad." I answer. " I love you." he says. " I love you too," I reply, backing into my room. Alex's POV I go inside my house and my 15 year old sister is sitting on the couch. " Hey, how was the dance?" she asks and I smile, remembering Aeliyah. " Good," I reply. " Whoa, what was that smile? And what's on your... Is that lip gloss?" she asks, coming closer, and I wipe my mouth, leaving little sparkles across my hand. Aeliyah. " Whos the girl?" she asks, sitting on the back of the couch. " None of your business," I reply. " Seriously? Come on. I know you just had a crazy makeout session. Her lipgloss is on your mouth. Just tell me. A name, at least." she says. " Aeliyah." I reply. " Ooh, that's a pretty name. What's she look like?" she asks. " Goodnight, Savannah," I answer, walking up the stairs. I hear her groan and mumble something about me being so secretive all the time and I just smile and make my way up to my room. I text Aeliyah goodnight and after she texts back the same, I go to bed, happy to finally be with the girl of my dreams.
