Harley walked out of the house and down the front steps while trying not to trip over her own two feet. She had put in her contacts, which she never had done since she got them, and slipped into a sleek black dress. Exhaling loudly while looking up at the sky she was a bundle of nerves tonight.
Harley: You got this girl. I mean it’s just Mason! Yea just think of it as just two friends going out for a nice evening alone...oh creator we’re going to be alone together! Wait we’ve been alone together before...but not like this! Ah plum I just need to get this over with and go to the park.
When she finally arrived at the park she immediately found Mason. It was hard not to miss him because of how handsome he is…
Harley: Ah! Now is not the time to think like that Harley! Or...is it?
Mason turned around and spotted her. His hand automatically shot up into the air to wave her over.
Mason: Hey there beautiful. I don’t think I’ve ever seen you wear anything like that.
Harley: Uh yea..you said dress nice and I didn’t exactly know what kind of nice you meant so I couldn’t decide between casual nice or formal ni-
Mason laughed and enveloped her into a tight hug.
Mason: Nervous much? I think you look beautiful either way and I also think you look gorgeous without your glasses on.
Harley sighed and leaned into the tight embrace. He smelled so good she almost got lost in it. Then she remembered they were in a public area and quickly backed away.
Harley: Yea so um...wait why aren’t you dressed up?
Mason: Because tonight isn’t about me it’s about you and I wanted to treat you like a princess.
Harley was taken aback a little. She’d never had a boyfriend and she didn’t know if this is what is was like. Were they together or was he just playing her?
Harley: Listen, Mason, I need to know something..
Mason: Okay shoot.
Harley: What is this?
Mason: This is a park?
Harley: No I mean what is THIS. What are we?
Mason closed his eyes and chuckled,
Mason: You don’t even know how cute you look right now with that serious face…
Harley: Seriously Mason!
Mason rubbed the back of his neck nervously and motioned towards the table,
Mason: I made some burgers for our dinner. I know it’s not much but how about we just sit down and enjoy that?
Mason knew that Harley was a foodie so he knew that food was her one weakness. It was very apparent to him when she ended up taking a picture of his lackluster hamburger and posting it on Simstagram, but he couldn’t help but smile. To him, she was the most adorable and gorgeous girl in the world.
After dinner was done Mason took Harley’s hand and pulled her up. He leaned in slowly and started to whisper like he was telling a secret.
Mason: So do you wanna know what I think about us?
Mason: Well I think we are something. I think that we can make something of ourselves together. Even if my future is unsure and your future is basically laid out for you. I know that somehow or some way we can make it work. I’ve been wanting to tell you this for a long time but Harley Belle I love you. Now I know this is going to sound cheesy but will you be my girlfriend?
For some odd reason Harley’s eyes were watering and tears started to pour out, tears of joy of course. She sniffled as Mason used his thumb to wipe away the tears and she finally mustered up the courage to answer,
Harley: Of course I will. I know I can be moody and have a short fuse but I don’t really like people and I’m a loner but you’re the first person that I’ve ever met, outside of my family, that I can stand to be around. I love you too Mason. I might not know much about you and you know everything about me but now I have time to figure that stuff out.
Mason smiled coyly and shrugged his shoulders,
Mason: So does this mean we kiss now?
Harley: Mason! Way to ruin the moment, jerk!
Even though Harley said that she was smiling while she did. Everything was finally falling into place with her life even if this Antonio Monty character was still threatening her family.
After hanging out at the park a little while longer it was time for Harley to leave. It was close to 2 a.m and she was tired and had school the next day.
As they said their goodbyes Mason grabbed her hand and pulled her close,
Mason: You know I wasn’t joking about that kiss right?
Harley: Sure I’ll give you a kiss…
As they both leaned in Harley quickly turned her face and planted a big kiss on his cheek,
Harley: See there’s your kiss!
Mason: Ahhhh I see what you did there missy.
Harley: I know! I’m so clever right?
Harley winked at Mason before she headed off into the night. He watched her leave and smiled to himself. He finally got the girl.
Harley was so tired by the time she got home that she didn’t even change out of her clothes before she passed out on the bed. Little did they know, but Antonio Monty was in town and he was coming.
