We were standing outside her place. I was there to drop her home.
“But I don’t want to go home,” she said and started stamping her feet like a five-year-old.
“But you have to,” I stated the obvious.
“I’m a teen, I can have nights out,” she said.
“You are a teen, not an adult. Go home,” I said.
“Why do you get to order me?”
“One, I’m the man in this relationship, and two, I’m older than you,” I said.
“3 months!” she shouted.
“And two thirds,” I added.
“Whatsoever,” she said and crossed her hands.
“Go home,” I said, pushing her toward the door.
“I. Don’t. Want. To. Go. Home,” she said.
“Okay, come with me.”
“To mine,” I said with a naughty look.
“Yay me! And your look won’t change my mind,” she said and punched my nose.
“Just tell your mom, okay?” I said.
“Why do we need to tell her?” she said and I looked at her, isn’t-it-obvious?
“Okay I’ll call.”
She told her mom that we were going to my place, and that there were 4 others with us. She wasn’t coming alone. She stammered through the call, but after 5 minutes of pleading and telling her mom that it was her birthday and a little more pleading, she finally agreed.
“Do you still want to go?”
“Yes,” she said and hugged me.
We walked together, holding and swinging our hands. It felt childish but good. We looked at the stars, and I slipped my arm around her waist. I pulled her close and tightened up.
“It hasn’t even been a day.”
“I’m sorry,” I said and pulled my hand away.
“No, I was saying it hasn’t been a day and… I feel so good about it.”
“Sure?” I asked, holding her again.
“A little tighter… Yes, that’s it,” she said. She held on to me tight and slipped the guitar pick into my pocket. She thought I wouldn’t notice. She kissed my neck and rested her head on my shoulder.
Some walks, you wish they never end,
Some seconds, you wish they never pass
