Chapter 1: Dreaming Reality:

I wrapped my arms around him, and he around my waist. His scent (a mix of sweat and cologne) made its way around me. I smiled as I buried my face in his shirt. How much I missed him, how dearly I loved him, how I longed to stay in this moment forever. I felt myself being pulled away. Torn. I felt myself wake up. And the dream ended. I cursed my alarm clock under my breath. Stupid thing. And suddenly I remembered. I would see him today. For 2 long weeks, I had not seen his smile, touched his face and body, I had not held his hand. Oh, how I longed for his caress, his kiss…

I dressed at top speed and made my way towards the kitchen. My mother sat at the table. "I'm leaving." I said and left with no other words.

Some where behind me, a horn blared. Yelling for me to heave on, I had been lost in my thoughts, completely mindless. I pulled away…drudging towards school.

I pulled into the parking lot, and turned the car, telling myself to be calm. With a glance in the mirror, I calmly walked towards the school, where heaven awaited me…

It only took a moment to spot him. He looked up as I walked in, and smiled. His smile felt like a beacon in my stormy, chaotic life…

We spoke no words when we came to one another. I wrapped my arms around him, and he around my waist.

I felt my dreams fading into reality. At last.

Except, this was so much better, for it was completely and totally real.

"Kathryn," Steve said. And I melted from the inside. "Are we still on for tonight?"

"Why, of course, love." He smiled and embraced me tighter…

So, how was Chapter one? On a side note, it is SUPPOSE to be very melodramatic, and sappy, it might get little sappier, but it does get more angst-y…PLEASE REVIEW!
