Chapter 1: Best. Day. Of. My. Life.
"Alissa! Oh my gosh! I'm going to miss you so much! Promise to call?" My friend Hallie came running up behind me.
"Of course." I said, giving her a hug. Its finally the last day of school, and I'm going to the shining city of Bradenton, Florida for the whole summer with my best friend Anna. We had been saving up forever to go on this trip and then come back to school our junior year with kick ass tans and be new and improved! We're leaving tomorrow morning, and the only thing bugging me was the fact that I was leaving my boyfriend, Casey, for the whole entire summer. We have been dating nearly two years, and I am completley in love with him. I must say, I'm going to hate that part, but we plan on constantly talking apart from the two weeks he is going to a camp where no phones are allowed. He and I are always together though, so this could be a good thing, it will prove to me if he really does love me.
Hallie ran off to find Anna and say good-bye to her. I opened my locker, pulling out my purse leaving the locker spotless.
"Hey baby." I turned to find Casey standing behind me. I smiled back at him.
"Hey." He put his arms around my waist and kissed me. I kissed him back, still getting those butterflies I had the first time he kissed me. They will probably never fade away. When he pulled away, I blushed, and avoided looking into his eyes directly. He laughed and turned my face to him.
"When will you ever get over that hun?" He said, flipping his brown hair out of his green eyes. I laughed.
"It looks like never..."
"Well, your leaving tomorrow morning, and I'm not going to see you for an entire summer. So, tonight at five I'm picking you up and taking you out ok?" I smiled.
"Yeah. Great. See you then."
I ran around my room, looking for something to wear when I went out with Casey. I decided on a pair of skinny leg jeans, some black heel type things, and a blue tank top with a black vest over it. I'm not very good with the whole, whats in whats out thing, but this looked cute. I went into the bathroom and brushed out my waist length blonde hair then perfected my make up, that I'm good at. I heard the door bell ring, grabbed my purse and ran down stairs.
"Coming!" I yelled. I opened the front door to find Casey standing there. He had on a pair of dark jeans and a red t-shirt that seemed two sizes too big, still, he looked incredibly hot.
Casey and I ended up going out to my favorite restaurant to eat, Chili's. Yes, I love Chili's and hate going to those exceedingly fancy restaurants for a date. I have made that very clear. Another thing I'd hate is getting engaged on a holiday, or somewhere fancy. Blehk. Drives me crazy.
After dinner, Casey and I walked down to the park. The sun was just setting and there were other couples around, and some artists. This was the nicest part of the town. We sat down on a bench, and Casey put his arms around me.
"Alissa, how much do you love me?" He asked, playing with my hair. I smiled.
"More than words could ever describe." Its not the most romantic answer, but it was the truth, and thats what he likes.
"Would you be happy being with me forever?" Wow, where's this conversation headed?
"Yeah, I would be." He laughed a little, and I could sense the smile spread across his face. He pulled his arms off me and got down in front of me on one knee. Oh boy.
"Alissa, I love you with all my heart, and your the only person I will ever love. I want to be with you and nobody else forever. Will you marry me?" He asked pulling out a small diamond ring. Wow, exactly perfect. We weren't somewhere fancy, and the ring wasn't so gigantic that it was tacky. Casey is amazing, and the perfect guy for me. I love him with all my heart...
I smiled, and could sense everyone around us watching.
"Yes!" I squeaked, my face burning up. Casey slipped the ring onto my finger, then picked me up and hugged me. I giggled a little as I heard everyone around us start clapping.
"I love you." Casey whispered into my ear.
"I love you too."
