I asked Amara out on a date and now I’m not so sure where to go from here. I’ve only known her for two days, so I don’t know much about the things she likes. Go figure. I’m also not an expert on this subject because I’ve never really asked anyone on a date before. And I've just learned a painful lesson that asking my sister is pretty much useless. She ended up teasing me endlessly like I’m some teenage schoolboy experiencing puppy love for the very first time.
I asked Wyatt and Hunter's opinion and they gave me all these ideas, good ones in fact, but I’m way too nervous to pick one knowing that I could either blow it or make her happy. Basically, I’m screwed and I don’t know what else to do. I’m just going to go with the flow and treat her to dinner at my favorite diner first then I’ll just improvise. Yeah, that’s a good start... I think.
By 6 PM, I’ve already sent her a message letting her know that I was already waiting in front of her dorm. I sat on the edge of the hood of my car while I waited for her to come down. A lot of students were staring at me, mostly girls who were curious to know what business I have here. I can sense their curiosity and normally, I’d send them a few flirty winks or give them a mega-watt smile, but since I met Amara, I kind of just don’t want to pay attention to anyone else.
“Hey, sorry I took so long,” she said stopping about two feet away from me. She looked so unsure of herself and it was so damn adorable. “Don’t worry about it. Ready to go?” I asked opening the passenger door for her. The drive to the diner was full of tension, but I made sure to act as cool as I can to avoid making her feel more uncomfortable. I took the opportunity to ask questions so that I’d also get a clue on whether or not my next plan will work out. Surprisingly, she’s also into nature which is great. I’m assuming it has something to do with her being an artist.
She was shy for the first part of our date, but when you get her to tell you about her interests, it’s as if she becomes a whole different person. She becomes animated and engages in conversations more. I couldn’t keep my eyes off her and I absolutely love listening to her stories. She’s crazy beautiful and awesome as hell. “Are you ready to go to our next stop?” I asked grinning like a Cheshire cat. She bit her bottom lip as she thought about what we’re going to do next and all I can think of is wanting to kiss her. “Where are we going?” I wanted it to be a surprise, so I just winked at her and said, “You’ll see.” I offered my hand out to her and she took it without hesitation. I felt a shock of electricity as soon as our fingers touched and it took every ounce of my will power to stop myself from pulling her into my arms.
We drove a few miles out away from the city. Her eyes widened when she realized that we’re passing through the countryside. “We’ll be there soon. Trust me you’ll like it.” I assured her. “Is this the part where you’re going to murder me, cut me into pieces, put me in a body bag, and bury me deep into the woods?” she asked all seriousness etched on her face. I took a double-take at her with my brows pinching together wondering if she really thinks that way about me. She must have noticed my confusion because she half snorted and half giggled. And fuck, that was again adorable. “I’m kidding!” She teased. I shook my head at her amusement evident on my smile. “You got me.”
I took a left turn into the woods and drove as far as the car can reach and parked in front of the trail that leads further into the woods. I grabbed my backpack from the back seat and told her to follow me. I took her hand in mine and intertwined our fingers. We walked for a bit and as soon as we reached the clearing, her eyes almost fell out of their sockets. She scanned the scenery before her awe evident in her expression. “This is my favorite place in the whole world. I come out here often to think and it's also beautiful in the morning,” I told her. “It’s breathtaking,” she gasped. The moon was shining brightly and the stars were twinkling above us illuminating the trees that surround the lake.
I took a blanket out from my backpack along with two canisters and pulled her down to sit next to me. “Do you drink hot chocolate?” I asked. She nodded enthusiastically obviously pleased with my choice of drink. We sat there quietly, just enjoying the enchanting scene, and then I felt her shiver next to me. I thought about several ways to keep her warm and let me tell you, the last one is not PG 13. I took my jacket off and put it on her then I wrapped my arm around her waist. This should keep her warm enough. She peered at me through her lashes and that was my undoing. The wolf inside me went ballistic and the next thing I knew, I was leaning in to kiss her.
She moaned into my mouth and it was sexy as fuck that it sent my cock throbbing. I wanted to consume her so I deepened the kiss pushing my tongue in her mouth. I licked and teased her sensually, coaxing her to follow my lead. God, she tastes like cherry and cream. She flicked her tongue once which made me smile then, ever so slowly, her tongue started exploring mine. I wanted to rip her clothes off and take her right there, but I have to take things slow with her. I pulled away slightly leaning my forehead on hers. “Are you okay?” I asked. She nodded breathing heavily. I can smell a bit of arousal on her and its causing mayhem in me. “That was my first kiss,” she whispered.
I almost howled in excitement upon hearing her confession. I don’t think I’ll be able to stand knowing that other guys have kissed and held her the way I am kissing and holding her now. I cupped her face and looked into her eyes “I’m glad your first kiss was with me,” I admitted. She then beamed at me and I could have sworn that my heart flew out of my chest and then landed in her hands. My mate is the most captivating creature in the entire universe and she's simply perfect.
