Invisible but InvincibleChapter 28c(Tiffany’s P.O.V)
“Where are we going?” I asked once we ended our kiss.
He fake sighed, “I told you, it’s a surprise.”
“But I wanna know,” I tried using the puppy dog eyes, but then realized that he was driving and couldn’t see me.
“Baby, I promise you’ll love it,” he assured me.
“You better be right.” “Or else,” I added.
“Or else what?” he smirked.
“Just don’t let me down,” I stuck my tongue out at him but then remembered stupidly that he still couldn’t see what I was doing.
We drove in silence for a few minutes until I turned on the radio, and Smile, by Avril Lavigne, came on. Feeling comfortable around my boyfriend I sang, and really meant what I was singing, “And since that day, you stole my heart and you’re the one to blame. And that’s why I smile, it’s been a while since every day and everything has felt this right. And now you turn it all around and suddenly you’re all I need, the reason why I-I-I, I smi-i-i-ile.” As I was singing that, I was looking right at Austin and I know he was watching with his peripheral vision because he smiled himself.
“You know I meant that, right boo?” I asked.
He replied, “Of course, otherwise you wouldn’t have sung it so wholeheartedly.”
Awwwwh! He noticed! “You noticed?” I asked, surprised.
“I notice everything about you Tiffany,” he replied easily.
“Really? That’s so sweet!” I exclaimed, almost too happily, but I could never be too happy around Austin.
“You deserve all of it and then some, well actually all and then even more,” he answered.
I was actually struck speechless but I was afraid if I didn’t say anything that Austin would be a tad disappointed, he would never say anything about it, of course, but I knew that he would be thinking it. I had to say the right thing though, so I decided that I would tell him I was speechless.
“Babe,” I breathed, “You’ve actually struck me speechless.”
I made her speechless? Every time I look at her I have to catch my breath.
I smirked in spite of myself, but stopped once I realized that I was in case she saw. “I’m sorry,” I casually said.
“It’s okay; silences aren’t awkward with you,” Tiff responded.
“I know they aren’t. That’s one thing I love about us, to be honest,” I whispered, more to myself than her.
“I love that too,” answered Tiff even if I was talking to myself.
By this time we were almost to my uncle’s restaurant and the song had switched to Robots & Aliens, by Forever the Sickest Kids, and I sang along as did Tiff.
As the end of the song came, we were just pulling into the parking lot of my uncle’s restaurant. I turned the car off and unbuckled my seatbelt and sprinted to the passenger side so I could open the door for her, like the gentleman I am.
She blushed, “Thanks Austin.”
“You’re very welcome Tiffany,” I smiled.
I lead her to the side where the fire escape was. I started climbing the first flight of stairs. “Well, are you coming?” I smirked as I looked behind myself to see if Tiff was coming when she, of course, wasn’t.
“Are you sure we can?” she retorted.
