even then we should've stayed, we ran away;; five

The whole ride back to Winnipeg was silent. It consisted of me staring out the window with my arms crossed. If he thought I was gunna jump into his arms after one kiss, he was crazy.

"Ally, look. I'm sorry for jumping to conclusions like I did."


"Oh, I see how it is."

"Figured it out all on your own? GOOD JOB!"

"You like me back, admit it."

"Yeah, and you'll get a fucking lake named after you. NOT EVEN CLOSE."

The car came to screeching halt and my heart began to pound like drum inside my chest. He turned off the car and he glared at me. I didn't know how to get out of this one.

"I'm trying to be civil with you here, and you're acting fucken childish."

"Oh? I am huh?" I snorted, "Ohh, Ally, be my girlfriend cause I spontaneously kissed you in the middle of the street. GET REAL TOE-EZ"

"So this is how it's gunna be? I'm gunna have to keep chasing you until you cave?"

"Sucks when you're on the other end of it, eh?" I bitterly snapped as his facial expression dropped.

"The fuck do you mean by that?"

"Last summer, you had all the girls chasing after you and you loved it. You broke a ton of promises and more hearts."

"How do you know that?" He retorted.

"Oh, I don't know. Maybe because I went to highschool with some of the girls? They never shut up about them. What makes you think that this time is different?"

Silence hung in the air and all I could hear was his heavy breathing. I looked over at him, the way his shirt fit snugly to his body caused my chest to tighten up. I did like him, but I wasn't going to fall over him cause of who he was.

"Cause, I really do like you. When I'm with other girls, I feel like I have to put on this persona, but with you I don't." He said as I slowly glanced over at him again, "You like sports just as much as I do, you're not afraid to speak your mind. You seem like the kind of girl that would be content with me taking you to a football game next week instead of some stupid movie neither of us care about."

"What? Was that a sneaky way of asking me out?"

"Ally, I'm trying to be civil and you're just shitting on it."

I chuckled slightly, "Okay, I'm sorry. So you really do like me?"

"Dead serious." He replied.

"What about UND?"

"It's not that far. I'll come home for Christmas, I promise."

"And I can drive down on weekends too."

"Ally, are you agreeing with me?" He smirked.

My face began to blush, "So what if I am?"

We both began to laugh uncontrollably. Our eyes never unlocked from each other.  The heat of the sun was beating onto the car and my head began to spin from the humidity. Jon leaned over the center consol and pressed his lips to mine for a mere second before my phone started to ring.

"Perfect timing." I muttered before I picked up my phone, it was Gina.


"Calm down, Jon almost got lost again."


"Whatever, just get the hell over here soon."

She hung up the phone and I laughed as Jon sent me a nasty glare. Maybe, just maybe, he was right. Maybe he isn't like all the rest.

it's that young-girl, wide-eyed, first-love, one-time innocence;; four

After Jonny and I had our lunch, we headed back onto the road and took the right exit this time. Suddenly the lake was in our sights. The sun was beating down rapidly on everyone. We got out of the car and saw all of our friends sitting on the hoods of cars and drinking beers. Jon wrapped his arm around my waist as we found Steph.

"Oh my god, are you two together now?" She gasped.

"We're still talking about things." I replied.

"But not for long. I like her. A lot." Jon smiles as he kisses my cheek, causing Steph to squeal.

"Well Come on, Gabby and Christina are here."

"Where's Gina?"

"She couldn't make it. She's having a party at her house tonight though."

I nodded as Jon and I decided to go swimming instead. I took off my shorts and shirt and tip toed into the lake. It was freezing. I screamed as Jon scooped me up into his arms and headed out deeper into the lake. I kicked and screamed, but he didn't care.

"Jon, if you throw me into the lake, I'll kill you."

"What? You want to be thrown into the lake?"


"So am I."

It was like an arctic rush when my skin was soaked in the water. I came up for air and tackled Jon. We were both laughing so much to the point that I couldn't breathe. I wrapped my arms around his neck and kissed him roughly. He returned the kiss as he grabbed a lock of my hair.

"Ally, will you be my girlfriend?"

"I don't know, Jon."


"Cause, you're leaving in September, and you'll be gone for 10 months again."

"But, I really like you. I think we could make it work."

"I don't want you to think. I want you to know." I sighed as he gently touched my cheek.

"Fine, Ally, I know we'll make it." There was an uncertainty to his voice, I could feel it.

"I still don't know."

"Why are you being so stubborn?"

"Why are you being so impatient? Give a girl a chance would you."

"Are we ever going to able to talk without a fight?" He snapped.

"I don't know, are we?"

He cursed to the sky before he sternly looked over at me, "I swear, after Gina's party, I will make you my girlfriend."

"We'll see about that."
