I was sitting on the stairs near my hotel room talking to my friend Katie. We, and a ton of other people from our church, are here in Georgia for a church convention. It's really fun!
"How are things going with you and Shawn?" Katie asked me.
I sighed and said, "Matt said that Shawn called me a bitch."
"That just doesn't sound like Shawn." Katie stated.
"I know, but I've been avoiding him for the past two days because I don't know what to say to him. Everyone knows he likes me. It's so embarassing. Everyone's talking about us." I responded.
"I think it's sweet. I mean, who knows, he may grow on you." Katie said.
"But he's like my brother." I stated.
Katie stood up before saying, "Feel lucky, you have a nice and sweet guy who likes you. But I'm gonna go hunt down Haley. I'll see ya later!"
"Ok, see ya." I said.
And so I'm left alone. Shawn is really nice and he's not half bad looking. He's always looked after me. He's really sweet too.
"Um, Selena?" I heard a voice say and looked up to see Shawn.
"Sh-Shawn, um, hi?" I greeted nervously.
"Selena, can I talk to you?" Shawn asked.
"S-sure. Sit down." I offered.
"It's too open here. Can we go somewhere else?" Shawn asked.
"Um, yeah. How about the place with the benches surrounded by the big trees?" I suggested.
"Yeah, sounds good." Shawn replied with a smile.
I stood up and we walked there side by side. His arm brushing against mine half the time. Once we got there we sat on either side of a bench and faced each other.
"Selena, I Never called you a bitch or said anything bad about you." Shawn stated.
"But Matt said-" I started but was cut off.
"Matt's a liar. I heard him telling Roy that he hates me. I think he likes you." Shawn said.
"Wow, I can't believe him." I stated in shock.
"Selena, I really like you." Shawn confessed, even though I already knew.
At that moment I realized something, "I like you too."
That was the most I'd ever seen Shawn smile.
He slid over next to me, towering over me because of our height difference. I looked around and noticed it was pitch black.
"Have you...ever kissed anyone?" Shawn asked in a whisper making me blush.
"No. You?" I replied.
"No. Why haven't you?" Shawn asked.
"Just haven't found the right guy yet. Why haven't you?" I asked, throwing his own question back at him.
"Heven't found the right girl." Shawn answered.
We sat in silence for a few moments before Shawn spoke again, "If I kissed you, would you kiss me back?"
My eyes grew wide and my legs started shaking.
"Someone may see us! It's too risky!" I exclaimed in a whisper.
"But when two people like each other, don't they kiss?" Shawn asked me.
I pursed my lips and looked down without saying anything.
"I'm not gonna force you to do it. But if you want to I'm all for it." Shawn said as he stroked my hair.
I looked him in the eye and said, "When two people like each other, they kiss."
I put my hand on the bench on the other side of Shawn and he put his hand on my left thigh which was covered by denim shorts. Our other hands were holding each other. Then we both leaned in and our lips touched. I don't know how long the kiss lasted, but when we both pulled away we were breathing deeply.
"I like you." Shawn said.
"I like you too." I stated with a smile.
I was reall happy with how this turned out. :) R&R!
