“Hello?” I answered.
“Maria! I need your help with something!” Kyle replied practically sounding frustrated.
“What do you need help with?” I questioned.
“So, I just saw this person at the coffee shop near our school andddd..” he paused for a slight second. “It was love at first sight! It had to be!” he exclaimed through the phone.
“Let me guess, you want me to talk to the person for you?” I questioned with a small smile, knowing damn well Kyle wants me to.
“Yes, please!” he replied with a happy tone.
“Alright, when do you want me to?” I asked followed by a soft chuckle.
“Is tomorrow okay?” he asked.
“Yeah, it’s fine. I’ll let Hunter know.” I replied.
“Wait.. Hunter’s going with us?” he questioned not liking the sound of it.
“No, I was just gonna tell him I’m gonna help you with something. In case he decided to make last minute plans with me.” I replied.
“Ohhhhh. Okay. Thanks again, I’ll see you tomorrow!” he replied happily.
“No problem, see ya tomorrow Ky!” I replied with the same tone before hanging up.
Basically, I was on the phone with Hunter and told him everything about what happened with Kyle and he was perfectly okay with it. We stayed on the phone till we both fell asleep, though I already know I was the first to sleep.

The day began and ended it how it usually began, which most of you probably know by now. If not, class, work, talk with friends, then go home. Just your casual day, then when school ended I met with Kyle.
“You said coffee shop near the school, right?” I questioned walking over to him at the front of the school.
“Yeah, are you okay with walking?” he asked.
“Yeah, I need to be more active anyway.” I replied chuckling as he started walking, and I followed walking beside him.
When we got in there, Kyle looked around the cafe looking for a certain someone and when he found that someone, he perked up.
“Right there!” he whispered loudly. “The one next to the cashier making drinks.” he added.
“The guy with dark hair?” I questioned as he looked at me with a smile and nodded.
“I need your help talking to him, and by that.. I mean find out if he’s gay or not.” he replied.
“Ooh, okay. I gotchu.” I replied about to walk away until Ky stopped me.
“Don’t make it obvious though, and can you get me a drink too?” he asked taking money from his pocket and handing it to me.
“No worries, I won’t.” I chuckled before taking the money from him and walking to the line waiting to order.
While waiting, the cashier and coffee maker switched spots so the guy Ky liked was the person who took my order.
“What can I get for you?” the guy asked.
“I’ll get a Cappuccino, and for my friend he’ll have--” I was cut off by the cashier guy.
“That guy over there is a friend of yours?” he questioned gesturing towards Ky with an eyebrow before looking back at me.
“Yeah, he’s my friend.” I replied.
“I know what he usually gets,” he replied looking down at the cashier. “That’ll be 12.98, and why is your friend so shy? I’d love to talk to him sometime.” he added.
“Here ya go.” I replied handing the money. “And really, you would?” I questioned.
Over here I’m contemplating whether or not to ask if he’s gay too or be subtle and ask if he has a girlfriend.. choices, choices. Sigh.
“Here’s your change.” he replied handing me my change. “And yeah, is he gay?” he asked.
“Thank you, and yes.. why?” I asked.
“I dunno, he’s shy.. and it’s really cute.” he replied with his lips pursed.
“Why don’t you talk to him then?” I questioned with a raised eyebrow.
“Tell ya what, my break is in 15 minutes. If he can wait, I’d be happy talking to him for a bit.” the guy replied with a smile.
“I’ll be sure to let him know.” I replied with a nod before going off to the side getting the drinks one by one to the table.
After a sip of coffee, I spilled the beans and told Kyle everything the cashier told me. And honestly, he was so happy about it all.
“He said I’m cute?!” he whispered happily as I laughed softly and nodded.
“His break is in,” I paused taking out my phone to look at the time. “12 minutes, are you gonna wait for him?” I asked.
“Yes, but.. will you stay nearby when we talk?” Ky questioned.
“Of course, just give me a thumbs up when you’re fine with talking with him alone.” I replied with a smile.
After the last 5 minutes of the guy about to be on his break, I moved to a different table and waited for them to start talking. When they did talk, Kyle tried to act natural. Buuut, we all know how excited & happy he was on the inside! My phone vibrated as I looked down at it only to see a text from Ky.
“Thank you for your help! 😁” he texted.
“No need, anything for a friend!” I replied.
I looked over at him to see him texting back while the guy looked back and waved.
“I’ll tell you about everything later, he’s gonna give me a ride home later!” he texted me before looking back at me and waving as I did the same before walking out of the cafe.
One of the things Hunter and I talked about last night, is that if I were leaving the cafe, I’d have to call him and let me him know. Because he planned to take me out, on another date.
“Hello?” Hunter answered the phone.
“I’m done here at the cafe, are you available to pick me up right for that date?” I asked with a smile, even though it couldn’t be seen.
“Yeah, I’m always available for you. I’ll be there in 5 minutes, Princess.” he replied.
“Okay, I’ll be here waiting.” I responded before hanging up, I just stood outside the cafe where the window wasn’t.
5 minutes later..
Hunter had arrived, and I got in the car with him. Right now, my all time favorite song by Ed Sheeran was playing, Perfect.
I wanted to sing it, but I’ve never sung a song like this in front of Hunter before.. at least until he started singing it.
“I found a love for me. Darling, just dive right in and follow my lead well, I found a girl, beautiful and sweet. Oh, I never knew you were the someone waiting for me.” he sang.
Just watching and listening to him sing made me smile so much, even if some of the notes he sung were off-key. I loved every second of it. It was close to the end of the song.
“I have faith in what I see, now I know I have met an angel in person. And she looks perfect, I don’t deserve this. You look perfect tonight.” he finished singing before glancing over at me a bit then quickly back at the road.
“You know Hunt, you have some vocals.” I mentioned nonchalantly followed by a laugh.
“On a scale from 1 to 10, how good was my performance to you?” he asked with a small grin displayed on his face.
“Eh.. I’d say a 6.5.” I replied jokingly.
“Well then, ouch..” he responded followed by a small chuckle.
“Where are we going for this ‘date’ anyway?” I asked looking out the window.
“Remember when I took you out to see those fireworks at night?” he questioned.
I jumped up a bit as I turned to face him with excitement displayed on my face.
“You’re gonna take me inside?!” I asked excitedly while squealing a bit.
“Yeah, there’s a fair going on. And today was the last day for it.” he replied with a smile.
“Can we ride the Ferris Wheel first?” I asked, clearly still excited about going.
“No, no. We have to save the best ride for last,” Hunter replied followed by a chuckle.
“You’re right, I guess when we make it there we’ll have to see.” I replied with a smile while kicking my feet a bit.
The two of us remained quiet, most of the ride. Except for when we decided to jam out to some songs playing on the radio. 30 minutes later, we made it to the fair. First one to get out the car? Me of course, I was the most excited to go here between us two!
“Come onnn, let’s go!” I said walking to his side grabbing his hand and heading to the entrance.
“Alright, alright, I’m going.” he replied followed by a chuckle following me.
When we got there, I was in the front of the line with Hunter. So I paid for our tickets!
“You didn’t have to pay for mines,” Hunter mentioned looking down at me.
“You always pay for my stuff. So now, it’s my turn.” I replied looking up at him with a big bright smile.
“Thank you.” he replied with a small smile.
He may be the gentleman, but just because he is one doesn’t mean he has to pay for everything. We were given a small ticket and suppose to give it to the people at the gate.
When we entered, I looked around frantically with excitement in my eyes. Before going on any rides, we bought a wristband that allowed us to go on any ride without tickets.
“Where would you like to go first?” he asked.
“Can we go on the carousel over there?” I replied with a smile.
“I’ll watch you on the ride.” he replied.
“What? No, I want you to go with me.” I replied while pouting.
“It’s fine, I’ll watch you.” he replied.
“Come on, pleaseeee?” I replied. “Please, for me?” I begged once more giving him the cute little puppy dog eyes.
I can tell he was trying not to give in, but the moment he did he responded with a, “Okay, I give in. Let’s go,” and ended with a chuckle as I walked with him to the carousel.
Me being the little kid I am, when we got on the carousel I got on a unicorn while Hunter got on a dolphin beside me. I couldn’t help but take a snap of him.
“Hunterrr!” I called out to him as looked at the phone and immediately covered the camera which made me laugh.
I posted it on my snap story and captioned it, “made him ride the carousel with me 😂💕☺️”
“Did you post it?” Hunter questioned.
“Mhmm, on snapchat.” I replied with a smile.
“The things I’d do for you,” he sighed softly before looking at me with a small smile appearing on his feature.
Most of the rides at the fair were to make people dizzy, not including the ferris wheel and bumper cars. Bumper cars was fun, although at first I was kinda lost and how to start it but I eventually got it. And most of us were crowded considering everyone trying to bump one another the whole time.
“Babe, can we go eat?” I asked walking with him side by side.
“Eh, what did you call me?” he questioned looking down at me with a small grin.
Realizing what I had just called him, I looked away as I felt my cheeks burn a bit from the nickname I had given him just now.
“What do you wanna eat, Princess?” he asked before wrapping an arm around me and pulling me close as we walked.
“I-- uh..” I hesitated still thinking about how I let that nickname slip out of my mouth.
“Babe.. I like that nickname.” he laughed as I glanced up at him only to see him smiling. “There’s no need to be shy just because you gave me a nickname.” he added.
“Well, it’s just.. this is all so new for me.” I replied with my lips pursed.
“Really? You never gave--” I quickly cut Hunter off with a, “No.” because I already knew what he was gonna ask me.
“I see,” he responded with a nod. “Well then, I’m honored to be the first to be given such a nickname by you.” he added with a smile.
Hunter and I walked around the area, looking for food we were possibly craving, then I saw this small funnel cake place that had caught my attention. Which was odd, because I’ve never had a funnel cake before.
“Found something you might like to eat?” Hunter questioned.
“Mhmm.” I hummed with a nod. “Have you ever had funnel cake before, and is it good?” I questioned looking over at him.
“You’ve never had funnel cake before?” he asked, clearly surprised. “It is good, would you like to try?” he asked again.
“Yes please!” I replied with a smile. “Can we share? I’m not that hungry, and I don’t know if I’ll be able to finish it.” I added.
“Of course, anything for my Princess.” he replied returning the smile I had given him.
We waited in the long-ish line, then for our funnel cake. Then ate it, and waited for our food to digest before going on more rides. Before we knew it, it was getting dark. Though it was only 9pm.
“Wanna go on the Ferris Wheel then head back home?” Hunter asked, his warm hand intertwined with mines as we walked.
“Mhm! Let’s go!” I responded cheerfully as we headed to the Ferris Wheel, thankfully the line wasn’t so long.
When we got into a gondola or however you guys decide to call it we sat on the opposite side of each other. As we got up higher, I looked down at all the lights from the fair.
“The fair lights look so pretty from up here.” I commented while taking my phone out to take a picture of the lights.
“The lights can’t beat the beauty sitting in front of me.” he replied. “Speaking of sitting, come sit next to me.” he added patting the empty space beside him.
“Don’t we have to keep it balanced?” I asked.
“Trust me, nothing’s gonna happen.” he replied followed by a chuckle, and just like that I stood up and sat beside him as he wrapped an arm around my shoulders.
“You’re cold, aren’t you?” he questioned.
“N-No, I’m not. It’s just my skin.” I replied.
“Either way, I don’t want you to get sick from the cold.” he replied unwrapping his arm around me as he took off his jacket.
“I’m fine, you don’t--” I paused as he put the jacket on my shoulders.
“Just wear it, please.” he replied.
“But what about you? Aren’t you cold?” I asked.
“Nah, I’ve been wearing a jacket all day. Plus, I don’t care if I get sick from the cold; I only care if you do.” he responded.
“Well-- I would care if you did.” I replied as he looked down at me.
“Really? Then why don’t you keep me warm?” he questioned with a smile.
When he had mentioned that, I wrapped both my arms around him and laid my head on his chest as he wrapped his arms around me as well. From there, we were both silent during the ride.
I glanced up at him, he wasn’t looking at me. So I fully looked up to him, then he looked down at me. Our gazes locked onto one another. Right there, I could tell he thought it was the perfect to make a move, because he had moved his head closer to me while gently yet slowly cupping my cheek. Our lips were only inches apart now...
