James and I were both massive fans of Shakespeare so when we found out there was a trip to Macbeth, possibly one of his greatest plays, we had to go.  Carmen and Shane were sitting next to us on the bus and I introduced James to them.

'So how are you two doing?'  I asked.

'We're good.'  Carmen answered for both of them and turned to smile at Shane.  They were so cute!  'What about you two?  Are you an item?'  We both replied with opposite answers at the same time.  I looked at James.

'Do you think we're an item?'

'I'd like for us to be.'  James smiled his heavenly smile at me and my stomach melted.  'If it's not too forward.'  I laughed.  'What?'

'You spent last night in my room.'

'On the floor.'  James was becoming defensive.  'What has that got to do with anything?'

'I think everyone else has already decided we are a couple after that.'  I continued giggling.  Why did he make me giggle?  That wasn't like me at all.

'I don't want you to be my girlfriend if it's only because that's what everyone else thinks.  I want you to be my girlfriend because you like me.'  The joking tone had gone out of James' voice and he was looking deadly serious.

'I wouldn't want it any other way.'  I kissed him.

'So is that a yes?'  James smiled.

'A most definate yes.'  James put his arm around me and pulled me against his chest and kissed the top of my head.

'Good because now I can say this.  I think I love you Skye.'

The End
