A Date With Amaimon
This issue again?
I look into my closet, once again faced with the challenge of picking something to wear. While searching my closet, my phone vibrates on my desk, signaling that I have a text message. I quickly grab it and look at the number. I don't recognize it, but it's local. I open the message and read it.
I'll be picking you up around 5 so be ready by then ~Amaimon
I nod and look at my clock. It's four now so I have an hour. I look back to my phone and type out a response.
OK, sounds cool. What should I wear? I type out, sending the message once I'm done.
Something casual he replies.
Where are we going?
It's a surprise.
I roll my eyes at his response. While typing out another reply, something dawns on me. I erase the message and type out something else.
How did you get my number? I ask.
I have my ways...
You just smirked, didn't you?
You are so predictable.
Whatever. I'll see you in an hour. Hope you have your lips ready for a "hello" kiss ;) he says, ending the conversation.
I sigh and put my phone back on the desk, walking back to my closet. I choose a t-shirt that has Matt Smith on it and says "Bow ties are cool" and some jean capris that go right below my knees. I then grab a hair tie and put my hair into a ponytail, my bangs falling over my face. Once my hair is up, I walk to my bathroom and put on some light makeup. I put on mascara, black eyeliner, and some lip gloss. I look at my reflection in the mirror and smile in satisfaction. I look decent at least. He did say to dress casual, so I did.
Walking out of my bathroom I look back at my clock. It's 4:45 now so he should be here in a few minutes. What can I do for fifteen minutes? I wonder. I look around my room for something to do, stopping on the door to my balcony. I walk over to the door and open it, letting in the cool ocean breeze. I lean against the railing of the balcony, looking out onto the water. I sigh with delight and close my eyes, letting the breeze play with my loose bangs. I inhale and the smell of salt water floods my nose, making me sneeze. I open my eyes again and look back to the water, studying it with great fascination. I wonder what's out there...
I'm pulled out of my thoughts by a loud beeping sound coming from the front of the house. It's probably Amaimon, I think to myself. My phone vibrates on the desk again and I make my way over to answer it.
Okay, I reply before putting my phone in my pocket and making my way out of the house. Outside I see Amaimon sitting in the driver's seat of a yellow Jeep Wrangler that has the top off. Standing next to the car, making quiet conversation with Amaimon, is Gabe. Uh oh...
"Hey Cici," says Amaimon as I walk up to the jeep. I look at him and give him a small smile, blushing when he smirks.
"So, you're going out with this guy Cici?" asks Gabe questioningly.
"We're not going out, we're just..." I say, breaking off.
"Going out?" he asks.
"...yes," I answer, blushing.
He laughs at my reaction and Amaimon smirks in amusement.
"Yes, me and Cici are going out," says Amaimon with a wink in my direction. I blush harder and he laughs. Gabe looks at the two of us and shakes his head with a smile.
"You better be good to her," he says, looking at Amaimon. He then turns to me and says, "And you better be good to him, I like him."
"Well why don't you just date him yourself then?" I ask teasingly.
"Well, he is cute," he says, "but I'm afraid he's a bit too young for me."
I laugh at his statement and look to Amaimon, who looks confused. I shake my head with a smile and get into the jeep.
"Let's just go," I say to him.
"Alright," he says. "Later Gabe. It was nice meeting you."
"And you as well, Amaimon," Gabe says with a smile. "Bye Cici."
"Bye Gabe," I say to my brother. He watches as we pull out of the driveway, Amaimon giving a beep as we drive down the road. We sit in silence for a few minutes as he drives.
"So what was that about?" asks Amaimon curiously.
"Oh, well Gabe is gay," I reply.
"Ah, I see."
"Yep. So where are we going?" I ask.
"Somewhere I won't be bored," he answers, a mischievous hint to his voice.
"That's reassuring," I sigh, watching the landscape as we drive.
"Don't worry," he says, "you're gonna have fun."
"We're here," I hear Amaimon say.
"Can I take off the blindfold now?" I ask. He had handed it to me near the end of our drive, ordering me to put it on so as not to spoil the surprise.
"Not yet," he says, his voice getting closer to me.
"What are you-?"
I stop when he presses his lips to mine softly, pulling away after a couple of seconds. There was no tongue, no roughness, and no lust. Just a small, sweet kiss. I feel my face redden as he laughs.
"You can take it off now," he says.
Gladly, I take the blindfold off and look at him. I observe his features, noticing something that takes me by surprise.
Not smirking, but smiling.
I smile back at him, my blush deepening slightly.
"Let's go," he says, still a smile on his face. I nod and get out of the car, suddenly becoming aware of my surroundings.
"An amusement park?" I question him.
"I told you we were going somewhere I won't be bored."
I just nod and he leads the way to the front gate where people were buying tickets. I pale in sudden revelation.
"I don't have any money!" I yell.
Amaimon looks over his shoulder at me. "Yeah, I know," he says simply.
"But, how am I going to buy my ticket?"
"I'm going to buy your ticket."
"No argument. I'm buying your ticket."
We walk to the ticket booth and he buys our tickets before we enter the park. I look around us in excitement, looking at all the rollercoasters, games, and rides.
"You look like a kid in a candy store," I hear Amaimon say beside me.
I turn to him and beam, showing my teeth. "That's what I feel like."
He grins at me and takes my hand, leading me through the large crowd of people. I blush as I look at our entwined hands. He's so warm, I think to myself, and his hand is so soft. When I look up, I find that we are heading to the biggest rollercoaster in the park. It's got a huge hill with multiple loops after it. I gulp in fear, looking to Amaimon. He looks really excited, his eyes sparkling and a grin stretching from ear to ear. In a few moments we are standing in line waiting to get on the coaster, Apocalypse is the name printed on the sign at the entrance. Amaimon looks to me in excitement, then noticing my scared expression.
"Are you okay," he asks, grin disappearing.
"Oh...yeah. Just a bit scared," I say, my voice shaking.
"Do you want to ride something else?"
I close my eyes. "No, I'll beokay."
I feel him get closer to me and I open my eyes.
"What are you d-?"
He embraces me softly, stroking my hair soothingly. "It'll be okay," he whispers in my ear. "I'll be next to you the whole time. I won't allow you to get hurt."
I go stiff at first, but then my body begins to relax against his. I breathe in through my nose and inhale his scent. He smells like pine trees and lollipops, an odd but pleasant mixture. He lets go of and looks into my eyes. "Are you okay?"
I smile at him and nod. "Yeah, I'm okay now."
"Who's next?" says the man who runs the ride.
"We are," says Amaimon, taking my hand in his and stepping forward.
We climb on to the ride and sit in the front seat, buckling our restraints and pulling the safety bar down.
"Everyone ready?" asks the man.
Amaimon turns to me, worry in his eyes. "Ready?"
I nod with a smile. "Oh yeah."
He smiles and we both look forward at the track in front us, waiting for the ride to begin. When the car begins to move, my smile widens in excitement. I feel safe with him, like I don't need to be scared, I think to myself. I look at Amaimon as the car begins to climb the giant hill. He's smiling too, and his eyes are sparkling with...hunger? Yeah, that's it. A hunger for excitement.
When we reach the top of the hill, the car stops for a few seconds. Amaimon and I look at each other and laugh as the car plunges down the hill, throwing our arms into the air.
The rest of the night is just as fun as that first ride. We play games, ride more coasters, and grab a bite to eat later into the night. The whole time neither of us can stop smiling, our smiles only growing wider as the night progresses.
"Five minutes to closing!" announces the speakers placed throughout the park.
With that said, Amaimon and I walk to the exit of the park, him dragging me through the crowds as we laugh. Once outside the gate he slows down as we walk the jeep, keeping instep next to me.
"Did you have fun?" he asks me, looking up at the sky.
I follow his gaze and look to the star-filled sky. "Is that a trick question?"
He laughs at my answer and I begin to laugh along with him when I hear it. His laugh is just so contagious that I can't help it.
We reach the car and climb inside, still laughing. After a few minutes we calm down and look at each other, smiling. He looks away and puts the car I gear, pulling out of the parking spot and driving to the exit.
We ride in silence, both of us smiling. I look at the sky again, seeing all the stars that shone brightly.
The sky is so beautiful tonight. Not a cloud in the sky, I think as my eyelids grow heavy and I fall asleep.
"Cici," I hear someone say. "Cici, wake up."
I open my eyes and see Amaimon in the driver's seat next to me.
"Oh, hello," I say with a sleepy smile.
"We're home," he says, smiling back.
I look up and see my house in front of the car we're sitting in.
"Oh," I say and unbuckle my seatbelt. I open the car door and get out. Amaimon gets out also and walks to me. He walks me to the door and I turn to say goodbye.
"Well, goodnight. I had a great time," I say.
"I did too," he says and gives me a peck on the lips before turning on his heel and walking back to his car. "Goodnight!" he calls as he walks away.
I smile and open my front door, careful not to make too much noise. I sleepily make my way to my room and collapse onto my bed.
Just as I'm about to fall asleep, my phone vibrates in my pocket. I pull it out and find a text from the number that she recognizes as Amaimon's. I open it and read it with a smile.
We should do this again one day ~Amaimon
Definitely, I reply before passing out on my bed, a small smile still gracing my lips.
