An ApologyMature

Maximus Wayde

A smile immediately made its way to my face when I recognized Briony's car. She pulled up into the car park, her small piece of a car whirring to a stop as she turned off the engine and stepped out.

Seeing her relieved me in a way; at first, as the minutes had continued to tick by with no sign of her, I'd thought that maybe she'd be a no-show. But Briony never liked to disappoint.

She walked towards me slowly, her face a composed mask of calmness. I could easily tell that her true emotions were hiding behind the facade she'd put on; Briony had always been a horrible actor. Nevertheless, I tried to bite back the sarcastic remark that were so close to being released from my mouth, and instead settled with a small smile.

"So, what is it that you want to tell me?"

She raised an eyebrow as we both walked side by side towards the entrance of the fast food restaurant. "You don't beat around the bush much do you?"

I grinned at her and noticed a light blush enter her cheeks. She suppressed a smile, biting down on her lower lip. "I'm just trying to get down to business. I wouldn't want to be wasting my time if this isn't an official date."

She snorted, her tone taking on a mocking one as she scoffed, "You're only in it for the fun aren't you?"

I pursed my lips, faking an angry glare. "Are you trying to anger me more?"

Sighing, she sat down onto one of the empty chairs as we both seated around a small, rounded table. Running her hands through her hair, she slouched slightly and opened her mouth to say something, then closed it again. I crossed my arms in front of my chest, waiting for it.

Finally, her eyes met mine and she gave me an apologetic smile. "I'm sorry for shouting at you earlier. I shouldn't have, especially when you hadn't (technically) done anything wrong."

"Mhmm, and?"

Sighing again, she muttered a quiet, "I was being an idiot. And I hope you forgive me."

Hearing those words from her, I couldn't help but soften up towards her and my plans of playing a little game of 'I'm still angry' with her diminished from my mind. Smiling, I reached over the table and patted her hand.

"That's fine darling. Now, let's order some food."

She rolled her eyes at me, the blush still lingering in her face, but she didn't say anything more. I turned around and snapped my fingers at the waitress. Turning around she flashed me a grin, a blonde, perky little chick.

Already, I could hear Briony groaning at the inevitable flirting that was about to occur.
