In Too Deep
I woke up to bright lights shining through the window, it was
late in the day but I had had such a nice dream I didn't want
to wake up. I actually kissed Kiara, and throughout the whole
night's sleep it replayed in my head. She kissed me back too.
But I wonder if she thought it was Micah.
"Get out! I'm done with you! You've played these
games for to long." I heard Kiara's mom's voice ring
through the air, they were in a fight again. She sounded like she
really wanted him out of there. Her parents had been fighting for
a while now. I quickly threw on a shirt and some jeans and ran
out the door to see if I could find Kiara to make sure she was
"Kiara! Wait up!" She was walking back towards the lake
and I caught up to her.
"Hey, you ok? I heard your parents."
"Ya, I just need to get away from there." We walked in
silence for a bit longer. She really looked beautiful today, her
hair thrown up in a pony tail, sweats, and an old t-shirt from a
concert we went to a few years back. She looked way better than
Grace ever did, she tried to hard with a ton of makeup that
stayed on your shirt when she rested her head on it, not
like Kiara's true beauty.
"Stephen what are you staring at?" Her voice broke me
out of the spell.
"You look really beautiful." She shifted uncomfortably,
but smiled a little bit. We walked over to some rocks and sat
"So, when did you leave the dance last night?"
"Umm...." Now's my chance to let her know it was
"Come on, why is it such a big deal to tell me?"
"Right after I kissed you."
"So it was you." It wasn't a question, and she was
staring me dead in the eyes, I couldn't look away.
"Ya, it was. I really like you." My heart was pounding
so loud in my chest I almost didn't hear her next words.
"I think I like you too."
