No, you haven’t ruined this.
Could I see you tonight? I know it hasn’t even been 24 hours, so, I’m certifiably pathetic, but I miss you.
Really? You’d rather stay in with me, than be able to hold my hand down the street? Or actually go out and don’t hide the fact that it’s a date? Why now? We’ve known each other for years now. We’ve even been to Paris three times. If you wanted to woo me, why did you wait?
I’d love to go out, and let it be known it’s a date. I’d love to hold your hand down the street. But more than that, I just want you. I’d rather be able to hold your hand and kiss you behind the scenes, rather than nothing at all. I was scared, Naya. I didn’t know if it would ruin us, especially if you didn’t reciprocate. And having you as a friend, and not jeopardizing that meant more. I suppose I should’ve taken a chance, but I didn’t know how. All those times in Paris, I wished afterwards that I had just done it. Kissed you, told you I had feelings for you. Something. Anything. But I couldn’t, Nay. Not if it opened up the possibility of losing you.
Yeah, I like you too. At least you could be seen out in public with him. Naya Marie Rivera. I don’t care about that. I’d rather stay at home with you than go out in public with him. Maybe you aren’t understanding how long I’ve been wanting to woo you. Trust me, it’s been a long time. And I’m not about to let you slip away now because of the logistics of it all.
If you plan on going out with Jacob, can you let me know instead of leading me on?
I’m sorry, what? I have absolutely no intentions of going out with Jacob, Nay. I went on a date with you last night. I like you. He’s a sweetie, but I’m not interested in him that way.
What time do you want me over?
As soon as you can, beautiful.
Do I get to know these plans?
Goodness no. Not until you get here.
