I twirled around and looked in the mirror as I waited for Sebastian
to come pick me up. I was having dinner at his house and I was
going to meet his parents. I was really nervous and I didn’t
want to let it show, but it was really hard. Sebastian kept saying
all day to just be myself and they’ll love me, but I just
kept thinking about how they wanted him to be with Mackenzie, not
me. The doorbell rang and I knew it was him so I grabbed everything
I needed and then ran down stairs. My mom had already answered the
door and she was talking to Sebastian.
“Bye mom.” I said, trying to signal her to stop talking
“Bye sweetie, have a great time.” she said, and I ran
out the door before she could say anything embarrassing. We got in
the car and started driving to his house. I knew he was rich but
when we pulled up to his house I wasn’t sure if it was a
hotel or his house. He had a gate outside of his property and he
had to put in a code. He also had a really long driveway that had
trees with pink flowers all around the road. I looked around,
amazed at what I was seeing. We pulled up in front of his house and
I just stared out the window. Sebastian came to my door and opened
it for me.
“It was my great grandfather’s house and then my
grandpa added on. They’re doing some renovating in the back
but it should be done by the summer.” He said, noticing that
I was amazed.
“It’s beautiful.” I said.
“Thanks. I’m kind of bored of it though. I mean you may
think it’s big but I’ve known the ins and outs of this
house since I was five.”
“It must have been fun when you were younger though; always
bringing new friends over so you can impress them.”
“No, I never really bring people over here. I used to try and
keep it a secret till Mackenzie opened her big mouth. She lives
right next door.”
“That’s sweet.” I said.
“We better get inside. My parents are eager to meet
you.” My stomach started to knot but I just tried my best to
ignore it. Sebastian held my hand as we walked up the stairs and
inside. As soon as we closed the door his parents ran into the
room. “Mom, Dad, this is my girlfriend
Bailey.” Sebastian said. Girlfriend? That
“Hello Bailey, it’s very nice to meet you.” His
dad said shaking my hand.
“It’s nice to meet you too.” I said. His mom kind
of stood to the side and didn’t say much and I was starting
to get the feeling that it was because of Mackenzie. His mom was
probably the one pushing him to date her. I really didn’t
care though. As long as he didn’t listen to her, I’m
fine. We walked into the kitchen and sat down for dinner.
Everything was good during dinner. Sebastian’s parents asked
me about my life and I told them everything they could know. They
also told me about a couple of things I didn’t know like that
Sebastian had a younger brother and a younger sister. They were at
their grandparent’s house right now but they would probably
be home by the time we are finished eating. I was actually kind of
excited because I loved kids, but confused as to why he never told
me. That’s not one of those things you just forget. I
didn’t want to overthink it because this was all so perfect.
I loved him and he loved me, and I didn’t want things to get
messed up. As we finished up I tried to help his mom as much as I
could but she just pushed me away. It’s weird but she kind of
reminds me of girls like Mackenzie and Dylan. She’s not as
straight forward as they would be but she’s still a lot like
them. She’s one of those girls you just don’t want to
mess with. Sebastian came over and grabbed my arm. He pulled me
over and we sat down on the couch.
“She gets like that sometimes.” He whispered in my ear.
I smiled and then the door opened. Sebastian’s little sister
and brother ran into the room and jumped on Sebastian. Before they
got away he sat them down and introduced them to me. “Mason
this is my girlfriend Bailey, Bailey this is Mason.” He
“It’s nice to meet you Mason.” I said in a soft
baby Voice. He smiled and then got up and ran away.
“And Isabella this is Bailey, Bailey this is
“Hi Isabella.” I said. She just kind of looked at me
for a minute and then she smiled and hugged me. “They are so
adorable.” I said as Isabella ran to Mason and they started
“Thank you. I better get you home though.” Sebastian
said as he stood up from the couch. He walked over and grabbed his
keys as I went and said thank you and goodbye to his parents. We
got into his car and drove down his long driveway. Sebastian held
my hand and we sat in silence. Not in the awkward kind of silence
but the satisfied kind of silence. We were both satisfied with what
happened and what was happening. I couldn’t as for things to
go any better, and I don’t think Sebastian would either.
