I showed Gavin my house and then ended up in our kitchen. Lifting myself onto a counter.
"So what to you want to do?" I asked.
"Hmmm...." He said tapping his chin with his fingers. "Do you got any good movies?"
I nodded. "Movie theatre or my room?"
"Where has the best place for scary movies?" He asked smiling.
"Movie theatre, its surround sound." I said.
"And love movies?" He said with a glint in his eyes.
Blushing, i said "Probably my room, my television is quiet.
"And comedies?" he continued.
"My room. Surround sound laughing is creepy." I said smiling a bit.
"Then your room it is." He said.
"Mmkay. Since you know where everything is, go and get however many movies you want. Ill make some snacks." I said turning towards the pantry.
I saw him nod and walk off. I checked my heart and my pulse to make sure i was still alive and made some popcorn and some junk food. I poured some drinks. Gavin was back and had 5 of my favourite movies. The notebook, P.S I love you, Saw 4, Teeth, and Emplyee of the month.
"I love these movies!" I blurted out. Then realized i had and covered my mouth quickly.
He just laughed. "Me too." He swept his hand towards the stairs. "Shall we?"
I nodded and gradded everything. He came behind me and put his arm around me. I smiled behind my hair.
"This is my room." I said.
He looked around and nodded. "Its very clean."
"Mysophobic mother." was all i could say.
He handed me the first movie, Employee of the month. I sat on my bed and clicked on the television. He just stood there, staring at me.
I patted the place beside me. "You can sit down, i wont bite. Promise." I said flashing my teeth to him.
He blushed and sat. "Your a different girl outside of school, Cassie." He said through the previews.
"Im better when im at my home. I dont have to worry about what i do, or if it will become a rumour. & i certainly dont have to worry about glaring eyes." I said looking at my fingers.
"It's okay. I wouldnt let anything bad happen to you." He whispered.
I looked up at him, at his lips, then at his eyes again. They were so beautiful. He did the same to me then blushed and looked at the television.
On impulse, I kissed his cheek. "Thank you."
He just nodded and smiled. I pressed play and laid on my belly. He mimicked me. He took some popcorn and popped it into his mouth. I hated popcorn, so i grabbed a nutty bar id stolen up.
The afternoon went pretty much like that. We watched all the movies. Paused to restock on our junk food, and resumed. The scary movies we laughed at. But when the love movies came on, he saw my crying for the first time. I never had a love like this. I wanted a love like this. As if reading my mind. He pulled me into a hug and held me. And we watched the last two movies like that.
When all the movies were over we went downstairs and i cleaned up.
"I guess i should probably get going. Its late." He said standing next to me.
"I suppose." Was all i could say.
"We could hang out tomorrow?" It sounded more like a question than anything.
I smiled. "Defftly." I walked him to the door.
"Call me." He said.
"Oh no." I said grabbing the sharpie i spotted in his front pocket. I wrote my number on it. "You call me." I said.
He smiled and nodded before pulling me into a tight hug. I felt his lips on the top of my head.
"Your a great girl Cassie." He whispered. I smiled into his shirt. Taking in his ginger cinnamon smell.
"Your a great guy." I said.
We broke and stared at each other. I stood on my tippy toes and kissed his cheek again. "Night." I said.
"Night." He said walking off to his car.
I closed the door and smiled. This guy was going to steal my heart like a bandit.
