I pressed myself against him in an effort to tell him that I knew what he wanted and it was okay. On cue, he deepened the kiss. I moved my hands from his shoulders to around his neck. His fingertips trailed up and down my spine, making me shiver. I loved it. Seth pulled away though and I looked up at him questioningly.
"I'm sorry, I-" he started.
"Why are you sorry?" I interrupted.
"I thought... I thought you didn't want to." He sounded confused. I smiled and pulled myself closer to him.
"Then you're a very silly boy," I whispered.
He smiled in relief and moved to kiss me again, but this time I pulled back slightly.
"I should probably go home," I murmured.
"Do you have to?" he moaned.
"Yes, I do. As much as I'd like to, I can't stay here forever."
I got off his lap and he just pulled me back down. I frowned at him and he let me up. Seth stood and grabbed his car keys. I got my bags and went downstairs with Seth.
"Oh, are you going, Lara?" asked Lianna.
"Yeah, my parents are probably wondering where I am," I said.
"See you soon then." She kissed my cheek and headed upstairs.
Seth opened the door for me and closed it behind us. He unlocked his car and we got in. He pulled out of the driveway and started towards my house.
"What are we going to do about that rumour?" I asked.
"I've been thinking about that. What if... we comply with the rumour, give the people what they want?"
"Seth, are you asking me out?"
"I think I am," he grinned.
"Yes, of course, but I don't want people to know about it right now. I need to break it to my mum before she finds out second-hand and kills me."
"I'm fine with that, as long as I get to kiss you in the meantime."
I leant across and kissed his cheek. He smiled and a couple of minutes later, pulled up a little way down the road from my house.
"If you want to keep it secret, I'm guessing you don't really want your parents to know I dropped you off," he said.
I undid my seatbelt and leant towards him. He kissed my lips and gently brushed his thumb along my jaw. I pulled away.
"Do you want to come round tonight? Mum, Dad and Robert are going out somewhere so we'll have the house to ourselves."
"What time?" he asked, smiling.
"I'll ring you after they've left."
I kissed him quickly and got out of the car with my bags over my shoulders. I shut the door and waved to Seth as he left. I walked down my road and walked up to my front door. I was about to get my key out when the door opened in front of me.
"You are almost two hours late," said Mum. "Where have you been?"
"I stayed after school to do some work and then I walked slowly," I lied.
"You stink of demons."
"Oh, I'm sorry that I go to same school as them," I said very sarcastically.
"You wouldn't have to if you just killed them."
"I don't want to kill them."
