(their parents extended the trip)

"What's wrong?" I ask sitting down beside Anissa.

"I miss Enzo," she says looking up at me.

"Enzo? Do you want to go meet him?” She nods happily.

“Okay go put your boots on, I’ll call him.”

I dial his number and put it to my ear, waiting for the ringing to stop.

“Hello?” Lorenzo speaks through the phone.

“Hey, uhm is it alright if me and Anissa come over? She’s been upset lately since she hasn’t seen you.”

“Oh yeah of course, just walk in, I’m here alone anyways.”

“Okay see you,” I say then hang up.

“Let’s go come on!” Anissa says jumping up and down.

LORENZO’S FRIENDS HOUSE

I hop out of the car and take Anissa out, holding her hand as we walk to the door, I go to ring the doorbell but remember what Enzo said, to just walk in.

I twist the doorknob and walk in, taking our shoes off we walk into the hallway.

“Enzo?” Anissa says and walks to look for him.

“Hey!” He says coming out of the bathroom..? I’m guessing.

“Enzooo!!” Anissa says happily.

“Hi baby,” he says and kisses her forehead while picking her up.

Oh..

“Hey Lilli,” he smiles and walks away.

Lilli? He usually just calls me Lillian..

I walk in behind the two and we all sit in the living room, it’s pretty roomy in here.

“So what’s been going on?” Lorenzo asks.

I stay quiet, thinking he was asking Anissa and look around.

“You know it’s rude to ignore someone’s question Lilli,” he says.

I snap my head to him, widening my eyes.

“Oh, I thought you were talking to Anissa, sorry.”

“It’s okay,” he chuckles.

“It’s been good honestly, Anissa’s school is starting soon, so I don’t really have to do much work anymore.”

“Hey!” Anissa says crossing her arms, acting like my words hurt her. I chuckle.

“Not that you are much work Anissa, she practically does everything for me,” I shrug.

Lorenzo chuckles, “Anissa, wanna see what I got you the other day?”

“What!?” She ask jumping up and down on his lap.

“Gimme a sec..” he says and gives me Anissa, walking into the kitchen, he comes back with a SpongeBob popsicle.

“Yayyy!!” She says and runs to him to get it.

“Okay go play in the backyard I need to talk to Lilli.”

“Okay,” she says and walks out to the backyard.

I stand up in front of Enzo, he looks at me and I look at him.

“So.. how’ve you bee-”

I get interrupted by hands on my cheeks and lips touching mine, my eyes widen and I pull back to see Enzo looking at me.

“What the fuck?” I say keeping eye contact.

That’s when he snaps out of it, his eyes widen as well and he steps back.

“Shit, I’m so sorry Lillian, I shouldn’t have done that.”

“Why did you?” I chuckle.

“Oh uh, nothing. Uhm, well I like you, over the past few weeks, even if you babysit my sister.”

I sit down and look at my shoes, “Well..”

“Well?” He sits down beside me.

“We can’t date.”

“Why not?”

“Well because like you said I babysit your sister, I don’t think our moms would allow this.”

“What if they don’t know?”

“What like keep it a secret?”

“Yeah exactly.”
