I went away with him the other day.
As soon as I knew it, we were laughing up a storm while working on different class assignments in his room. We sat in opposite directions, shoulder to shoulder, still facing to each other. The laughter faded away as he stopped to look and smile at me. To break the tension, and to hide the fact that I was blushing a great deal, I asked, “Homework?”, quickly referring back to it.
He cuts me off just as my pencil touched the paper. He says, “Do you remember the time we were at the movies,” he chuckles, “and the main character comes back to see her? You smiled this ridiculously big smile when I look over, and that’s when I knew I wanted something more out of.. us.”
I look at him. A small smile starts to curl at the corner of my lips. “You know I’ve always had this huge crush on you. One I’ve never thought of acting on. You’re this.. amazing guy and girls fall all over you. What are the odds you’d ever end up with someone like me?”
I turn away to hide the redness that my face has succumbed to, at the same time turning out of the dream in my bed. The smile faded away from my lips once I realized I was in deep slumber. I tried going back to sleep, but alas, I could not. We were only a dream.
For in dreams, we enter a world that is entirely our own.
