“Sorry, again, about earlier,” I said when I walked into the living room.

The incident earlier was something to apologize for. We had covered the whole kitchen in white powder from the flour fight earlier. I might not of said this aloud, but it was the most fun I had had in a long time. It must have been the thought of Jake that made it worth while.

My hair was dripping with water from warm shower I had just taken, and I was wearing my dry clothes from the day before, although they were still salty. Jake sat on the couch, staring out the window out into the sea. Watching the silent blue waves roll into each other. His hair was wet too, although it was gathered into a ponytail at the back of his head. What never seized to fail me was how he could make jeans, and holey jeans at that, look like they had come straight off a cat walk!

“Why are you apologizing? It was fun! Anyway, we’ve got it cleaned up now… And, I think you keep forgetting that there were two people there, not just you,” he said, and turned his head to look into my eyes.

“You should be locked away for fifteen years! I can’t believe how bad you were!” I joked.

“Take me away now, before I do anything drastic!” He teased back.

I laughed.

I couldn’t believe how much Jake was sucking me into his own little world. But, then again, I cant say that I was complaining. Jake was like a whole different species, his looks, his personality, even the undying love I had for him was a different species to me. If someone took everything away from me I could say I would be happy as long as I had Jake. He’s all I need right now, everything I need to drag me out of this depression which I have been in for as long as I can remember. All I can do now is thank reality that he came along, but even if we stay friends forever I would still be happy. When I’m with him its like everything which I found depressing before has suddenly disappeared.

“Well, thank you for everything, I appreciate it so much, but I think I may be overdoing my stay. I’ll be going,” I said with a smile.

“You’re welcome, but I seriously don’t mind. You staying here was kind of fun. You know, your pretty damn cool,” he said but didn’t look at me while speaking.

“Kind of fun? I’ll try and take that as a compliment.”

“You should,” he then swivelled his head round to look into my eyes, although his face produced no smile, only affection…well, I hope it was affection anyway.

“Then I will,” I whispered, but only because I was taken away by his eyes, his big loving eyes. “Well,” I drew breath and dragged my self out of memorisation, “I better be going. Thanks again for letting me stay.” I then walked towards the door.

“Do you want me to walk you home?” He asked like the gentleman he was.

“No, you don’t have to trouble yourself, it’s cold outside, and I don’t live that far away either.” I quickly grabbed my coat off the side and then climbed out of the door, closing it behind me.

As I got further down the winding road I stopped myself. Why the hell hadn’t I agreed for him to walk me home again?! The truth is I live at least four and a half miles away, and its cold, and I want to be with him! I can be such an idiot sometimes! Dammit!
