It had been a couple weeks since Jensen and Celine took the anti aging potion and so far there wasn’t any repercussions from it. Of course while the rest of the people their age were turning into elders, they were staying younger. It was a bittersweet moment for them both. They both knew they would outlive everyone they knew but at least they would be able to be with their children longer.
Harley on the other hand was wrestling with unwanted feelings towards Mason. Ever since that kiss she had been avoiding all contact with him except through emails and texts. She could NOT see him in person again.
Well that plan pretty much backfired on her when he decided to show up and throw rocks at her window to get her attention. So romantic.
After hurriedly putting clothes on and practically dragging a smirking Mason to a park bench away from home she let it all loose.
Harley: WHAT ARE YOU DOING HERE?!
Mason: Well hello to you too Harley.
Harley: Cut the plum Mason. You could have easily texted me with whatever you needed to tell me, or email me for creator's sake!
Mason smirked and crossed his arms over his broad chest,
Mason: Well what if I just wanted to see you? Ever since we kissed you-
Harley: That was totally not a kiss!
Mason: Uh sorry to tell you this sweetheart but if our mouths touch together it’s a kiss.
Angrily, Harley looked out into the distance behind him trying very hard not to lose her cool and punch him.
Mason: You know I think it’s absolutely adorable when you’re upset because your forehead scrunches up.
Harley couldn’t help but smile a little bit,
Harley: I swear Mason, I am about to punch you.
Mason: Ah see! There’s that cute little smile! I tell you what, I’m going to head home since I’ve done my duty of bugging the crap out of you today and you stay by your computer because I’m going to send you something through email.
Harley: Is it something related to the case? Did you find something out?!
Mason: Uhhh...well...you’ll just have to find out when you get it, okay? I’m out Harley!
As soon as Mason left, Harley ran upstairs threw back on her pajamas and sat down at her computer to wait out the email. Maybe not even 20 minutes later did she get an email from Mason with the subject saying,
Harley’s heart skipped a beat as she quickly double clicked the icon on the screen so she could open up the message and read the body of it,
“Yes I know I was literally just there and I could have told you this in person but I felt like this would be more romantic and also you could save this. Harley Belle I think you are the most beautiful girl in the world and I want to show you that you are a couple days from now. This Thursday night meet me at the park so I can romance the plum out of you, and show you how much you mean to me.
p.s. Wear something nice.”
Harley was tingling all over with excitement! She knew she shouldn’t have anything to do with him and every bone in her body told her she shouldn’t but hey, it was only a date right? It didn’t mean anything!
Later that night Harley and Delsin were doing their homework together in the kitchen and Harley had a bone to pick with him. She didn’t want to bring it up when their Mom or Dad was around because she didn’t want to start anything but it was about time she said something.
Harley: Hey Delsin? I wanted to talk to you about something that I’ve noticed…
Harley: Well...don’t you think you and Amber are...well...messing around to much?
Delsin: What? What the plum Harley?! Why would you even ask that question?!
Harley: Well it’s kind of hard not to notice when you’re doing it right in the room beside me!
Harley: OR in the hot tub right outside Mom and Dad’s window!
Delsin: Well that was-
Harley: OR the new observatory we just installed!
Delsin: Well it’s not just about that!
Harley: Well then what is it about?!
Delsin huffed and slammed his book down and scooped up the rest of his homework,
Delsin: Just forget it. You wouldn’t understand anyways.
What Harley, or anybody didn’t know was that Delsin had made Amber a very serious promise. A promise that practically would last a lifetime.
Delsin: I know it’s not much but I’ll get you a better one once we are married!
Amber: You really mean it Delsin? You really want to marry me?!
Delsin: Of course! You’re the most beautiful girl I know! I don’t want anyone else to have you but me!
Amber: Omygosh! I have to run home and tell my Mom, like, right now!
Delsin: But I-
Amber: I’ll text you later!
Delsin was left standing outside of the observatory they had just messed around in and although he was happy he had a nagging feeling that something just went extremely wrong.
