A Summer To
Chapter 10 part 4
*the last one was supposed to be
looked to each other and then back to me then shrugged. I
rolled my eyes. They were so bad at lying. “Alright
thanks. ” I said anyway.
It was starting to get dark out and I realized because of the
party I never went to the lake. The party was starting to die
down anyway so I made my escape without anyone seeing me. I
walked through the woods and through the opening I could see a
faint dim light. Usually at this time of night it was basically
completely dark near the lake. I slowly made my way towards the
I finally made it to the opening and couldn’t believe
what was in front of me.
There he was, standing at the edge of the lake. Next to him was
a blanket with a single candle lit right in the middle. At the
very edge of the blanket was a picnic basket, which I assumed
was filled with food. I just stood there not able to say
anything. He walked towards me and held out his hand. I took it
without even thinking and followed behind him towards the
blanket. I sat down across from him taking everything in.
The moon above me was shining brightly. The lake in front of me
shimmering and glowing from the moonlight. Anthony across from
me, the candle light carefully showing his features. His hazel
eyes sparkled and his smile shined as he looked at me.
“Do you like it?”
“Yes. This is amazing. ” I finally whispered.
“I did it all for you. ” “Thank you Anthony.
So much. For everything. The whole day has been amazing because
of you. You didn’t have to do all this you
“But I did. Sarah ever since you got here my life has
changed. When I saw you on that first day of camp my heart
skipped a beat and I knew I had to get to know you.
You’re perfect. You don’t take crap from anyone, no
matter who it is. You’re
beautiful, funny, smart, talented, athletic, the list goes on
forever. I’m so glad I was your counselor this summer. I
don’t know what I would do if I wasn’t. I like you
Sarah a lot,” he paused and looked to me with a hopeful
smile, “And if you don’t like me back, then I just
made a complete fool out of my self. ” He laughed a
little at the end and looked down towards the blanket which
made me smile. It was a little funny how nervous he was. All
other times we’ve talked it never seemed like he was very
nervous, it was always me who was a nervous wreck.
“Anthony, this is incredible. I don’t know how to
thank you enough. Truth is, ever since you found me on the
first night, here at the lake I couldn’t get you out of
my mind. I just thought that because of our age difference it
could never happen so I kept pushing it to the back of my mind.
No matter how many times Rosie and Katie told me you liked
me,” I said laughing, remembering all the time they
accused him of it, and there were a lot, “But I do like
you Anthony, a lot more than I ever thought I would. ” I
said smiling. His head shot up and I could see him smiling.
He sighed a breath of relief and took hold of my hands.
“That being said, Sarah will you be my
“Well,” I looked to the sky acting like I was
debating my answer. I looked back to him and could tell he was
nervous about my answer. I smiled. “I wouldn’t have
it any other way. ”
Next thing I knew I was being picked up and spun around in the
air. The way his arms were around me made me feel safe, like
nothing could ever hurt me while I was with him. The feeling I
haven’t had since Kyle, and it never felt this great. I
couldn’t stop smiling and I knew right when Katie and
Rosie saw me they would know something was up. But of course
I’ll tell them everything.
He finally put me down and I saw that he was smiling to.
“So is that basket over there just for show or is there
food in there? Because I’m starving .” I
“Yes there is food in there and I made it all myself.
“Do I really want to eat it then?”
“Hey! I’m a good cook!”
I laughed at his reaction. “I’m kidding! Of course
it’ll be good. ” I pulled him down onto the blanket
and started eating the delicious food he made for me.
After we ate dinner he pulled out a chocolate cupcake. He stuck
a candle in it and lit it with a lighter. “Make a wish
.” He whispered to me giving me the cupcake. “I
don’t need to. I already have everything I could ever
wish for. ” And with that I blew out the candle.
They're finally together!!! Yayyy! I absolutely loved writing
