It had taken ages to decide on what to wear, even with Nina helping me to choose, but in the end I'd decided on a short, strapless, deep emerald coloured dress. I'd loosely curled my hair too, so it just fell past the start of the dress.
I was a bit self concious as I sat in the car, wondering what he thought. He'd sounded so sweet on the phone, just like he had when we'd first met. "Hey." I said quietly.
"You look beautiful." He whispered as he leaned closely. Our lips brushed and we kissed. It was the first time in ages where it was us kissing and not him kissing me. I don't think I can remember the last time when our kisses were real like this one. It sent shivers down my spine.
The drive to the restaurant didn't take long, but there was silence the whole way. It wasn't awkward, instead it was nice silence.
As we pulled up outside the restaurant, Lucas said something that surprised me. "How about we skip the meal? I can cook us something better at the hotel I'm staying in." He seemed hesitant when asking, as though afraid of rejection. I found it cute.
"I didn't think much of the food here anyway." I answered quietly.
Lucas smiled at me and drove on to the hotel room where he was staying. He was very gentlemanly when we parked up. Insisting on helping me out of the car in the dusk, we then walked to the room.
Once we were inside, things didn't go quite as planned.
