♣Waking Up In Vegas♣
I sat on the sofa, my legs propped up on the coffee table. The table was playing quietly in the background - something like American Idol, but I was reading a magazine of Tessa's. It was celebrity gossip. Within the last few weeks, I had forgot completely about the outside world; that other people had lives of their own - I was just focused on my own. I've been back here for nearly twenty-four hours now, and Gale hadn't returned from Ohio. Was he there to find me? Was he lost? Or was he there for Cal? I pushed the thoughts away and put the magazine down; it was extremely boring.
I stood up and walked through the hallway, leaving the TV on. I jogged down the stairs, and opened the door to the bar; the noise had hit me from the top of the stairs. I shut the door and walked around over to the back of the counter. Nate always seemed to be behind the bar, and was once again there - making some sort of drink. His feet were bare once again, but I never question him about it. I leaned on the counter, looking around. I only recognised the waitresses that I lived with, but no one else. Nate smiled at me.
"Don't look so sad, Theo," he said, shaking up a metal cup.
"I'm not sad," I told him. He grinned at me.
"How about I give you something to do?" He asked me, and I nodded. He passed me a blue plastic bowl. "Fill the peanut bowl please," he said, smiling. I passed the bowl from hand to hand, and sighed relcutantly. I walked further down the counter, and got the peanuts out from the fridge. After pouring them into the bowl, and putting them away, I took the peanut bowl and gave it to Nate.
"You bore me Nate," I told him, holding back a smile. He grinned and passed the man his drink.
"Aww, you love me really," he told me. He wrapped his arms around me, in a hug. Grinning, I hugged him back.
"Hey, so, you're gonna get your arms off of my girl, right?" Someone asked from behind me. I looked around and there, before me, stood green-eyed, black-haired Gale. I grinned and jumped over the counter to hugged him. I felt his strong arms wrap around me, and his breath on my shoulder. We slowly pulled away.
"Your girl?" I asked him. He smiled and nodded.
"Well, if you want to be that is," I nodded. "So, you do?"
"Yeah, I do," I smiled. He leaned in his head, and kissed me slowly.
Later on, we sat on the sofa, facing each other, cross-legged.
"So, you went to see Cal?" I asked hesitantly. He nodded, taking my hands in his.
"Yeah, he's pretty cool. I see why you like him so much," he told me.
"What did you talk about?" I asked.
"You, mainly. And he answered the question I went to ask," he said.
"If you loved me," he replied. I raised my eyebrows. "He said you did, which made me pretty happy." I smiled and nodded.
"That's true," I replied.
"But, I learn't something," he told me. "I heard that, if two people love eachother - there's only one thing they can do." I stared at him, and tilted my head slightly. "I know we've done this before," he said. To be honest, I was getting a bit confused.
"What?" I asked. He just smiled, slipped off the sofa, and landed on the floor on one knee. I bit the inside of my lip as he reached into his pocket and pulled out a small box. He opened it up, to show a silver ring, with a diamond on the top.
"And that one thing we can do, is be married," he said.
