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.
"WHERE THE HELL ARE YOU TWO? WE ALL LEFT THE LAKE AT THE SAME TIME, SO THERE'S NO WAY YOU SHOULD BE LATE!"
"Calm down, Jon almost got lost again."
"GINA, SHE'S LYING!"
"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.
