Ada: Not You Again

Ada Knowles

That night was perfect. There'd never been anything like it. With Evan's arms around me, I just felt like I was in heaven. No, heaven wasn't even close to how I felt. No words really. We talked the night away but finally I couldn't resist from the tempting clutches of sleep as I relaxed against Evan's body and drifted off to dreamland.


I woke up the next morning, and lifted my hand to rub at my eyes. What time was it? Just as I was about to get up from the bed, I noticed what position I was in. Evan's arm was around my waist, holding me to him. My back was against his chest and I could feel his chest rise and fall as he breathed in and out. Getting up would mean waking him up and I didn't want to disrupt his sleep.

So I lay back down on the bed and closed my eyes, going off to sleep again.


"Ada, wake up."

I got up immediately, at the sound of Evan's voice in my ear. He grinned at me, handsome as ever and said, "It's about time we both got up. It's now noon."

"What?"' I gasped, then twisted my body to check out the clock behind me. Five minutes to twelve.

"Oh god! I was hoping we could spend the day together! Okay, go get dressed and take a shower! After that we're going out!" And that's exactly what we did.


I guess you could call our activities a date but hey, what else do people do on the weekends? Right now I was back home from a day of going to the amusement park, eating icecream and a whole lot of other fun. It was not eight p.m and mom, Evan and I had just finished eating dinner.

"So, had fun today?" Evan asked me, pulling me down next to him on my bed.

"How could I have not?" I winked at him.

Right then, the phone rang on my bedside table and I knew mum would pick it up from downstairs. But then after a second or so, she yelled at me. "Ada, it's for you!"

"Excuse me for a moment," I muttered to Evan and then reached for the phone on my bedsite table and clicked the green button.

"Ada here," I said, grinning at Evan who was making silly faces at me.

"Hi Ada, it's dad." The one voice which I was hoping not to hear most all these days echoed to me. Not you again...

The End
