1.8 Part Eight

THE FIRST DATE

The next morning David called Kate and asked her if she would go on a date. Kate agreed. They settled to meet in the late afternoon in the park because they were both still tired from yesterday. David arrived first.

0235

As Kate wasn’t there yet, he decided to sit on a bench and wait for her. When she still wasn’t there ten minutes later, he went back to his car to pick his copy of The Warlock of Palladia.

0236

He sat back on the bench, opened the book on page 54 and started reading.

0237

The moment he finished reading the second page, Kate arrived.

0238

0239

0240

David got into the story so much that he didn’t even notice. Kate sat next to him, but he kept on reading. The moment she said hi, he got back into the reality.

0241

Oh, hi… I’m sorry, I haven’t noticed you were here, he said.

It’s okay. Well, it’s not actually. Please forgive me I kept you waiting for so long… I had troubles getting here,” apologized herself Kate.

What troubles?

Well, let’s say that I kinda hate the local taxi service.”

Why?

Because there is probably only one taxi driver and I have had some bad experience with him,” she explained to David.

I understand… I completely hate Bridgeport taxi drivers too,” he smiled.

So, I see you love fantasy books,” said Kate.

Yes, I do. Do you?

The Warlock of Palladia… hmm,” she read the title of the book he was keeping in his hands. “I’ve never read that.”

Well, I’ve just started, but the storyline becomes more intriguing by every page.”

Sounds fun, maybe when you finish it, I’ll borrow it from you,” she smiled.

Sure!” said happily David. “Do you wanna take a walk?

Yeah, why not!

0242

They walked and talked for almost two hours… then they stopped at the pond. It was almost sunset.

0243

I really like you, Kate. I want you to know it,” said David to her and took her hands.

I like spending my time with you. If I could stop the time, I would do it,” she smiled.

Really?” he wondered.

Why not?

Well, I don’t know, you don’t know me well… yet… So maybe you could regret it one day…

You think I will?” she asked him.

No, no… I hope not…

So why are you even talking about some nonsense like this?

Sorry, I didn’t want to ruin the moment…,” apologized David. “Lets talk about something else then,” he smiled at her.

Do you like horses?” asked Kate and sat on the stone bench near the pond.

0244

They spent another hour talking about horses, about Bella, about the race she won and also about her best friend.

I think that if your friend George was a little younger, I would be talking to a married woman now…,” he joked.

Oh, come on! Let’s not speak about things that could have happened, IF,” said Kate. “George is my best friend and I’m really happy that I have met him… Without him, I couldn’t have even participate in the race…”

I was just joking.

Exactly,” said Kate sharply.

Come on, don’t get offended, please…

I’m sorry,” apologized Kate.

It’s ok, come here,” told her David with a sweet voice and put his arm around her shoulders. “Isn’t this better?

0245

0246

They continued talking for some more time.

0247

When David told to Kate, that it’s getting late and he has to get up early tomorrow she couldn’t really pay attention to what he was saying. She was blinded by his beautiful smile. His perfect white teeth and his full lips were moving slowly in front of her eyes… so an absent-minded yes came out of her mouth.“Very well, then...,” said David and stood up.

0248

They were standing in front of each other and gazing in their eyes. All the people went away already an hour ago so it was only them two now.

0249

I really enjoyed this afternoon,” told him Kate and caressed his shoulder. As she was caressing his arm, she could feel his strong muscles.

0250

Me too,” said David. “I would like to stay here with you until the morning, but I really need to get up early, plus I really feel tired.”

0251

Let’s stay here until the morning then… We can watch the stars and eventually fall asleep… the nights are still warm in August…,” said Kate.

Oh, you’re really too sweet Kate,” he smiled. “I’m not sure if I can just look at you,” continued David and got closer to Kate who was completely intoxicated with love.

0252

He pulled her towards himself and kissed her.

0253

Kate was shocked, because she didn’t expect it, but the next moment she was kissing him back.

0254

0255

0256

I think I love you, David,” said Kate. “Please, promise me, you’ll move to Monte Vista.”

I would love to, Kate,” he told her softly.

But?”

But I cannot do it now, I have my job there,” he explained her.

So after you leave I will never see you again?” she worried.

I don’t know.

Kate had to try hard to control her tears.

0257

Please, don’t be sad, Kate,” said David and took her hands. “Can I be your taxi driver tonight?” he tried to change the argument.

…yes, you can!” said happily Kate.

Let me take you home then my lady,” he smiled.

0258

0259

When they reached the pizzeria, it was almost 11 PM.

0260

I am really happy we’ve met, Kate.”

You cannot imagine how happy I am. I would be kissing you all night and all day, Kate thought to herself. “Yeah, me too,” she said.

I have to admit, that you are a really good kisser!” he smiled.

0261

Thanks,” she smiled. “Would you like to come inside?” asked him Kate.

0262

Terribly, David thought to himself, but I don’t want to harm such an innocent person as you are. Yes, but I can’t, I told you I have to get up early tomorrow.”

0263

Why? Aren’t you on a vacation? You can sleep how much you want!” she smiled.

Well, I would love to stay here longer, but… I have to return to Bridgeport… with the first plane,

What?!?! WHY?

My agent called me earlier today. I have an important photoshoot tomorrow.

No… I mean, yes, that’s awesome… I guess… but… but… what about us?

Well… I would like to stay in touch,” assured her David.

Yeah, but… I think I really fell in love with you… and… and… you’re leaving.”

Don’t worry, I will not forget about you. I promise!” said David and kissed her.

0264

Come on, let’s take a picture together, so I have you always with me!

Ok,” agreed Kate.

0265

0266

Look at yourself, you are beautiful!” flattered her David hoping it would cheer her up.

0267

Kate smiled and said “So I guess this is good bye…

Yeah… It is.. but not farewell, right?” he smiled at her. “I think, we’ll meet again, Kate.”

I really hope so, she thought to herself. “I think we will,” said Kate to David who approached to kiss her good bye.

Have some fun while I’m gone! Don’t be desperate and all… Promise?

What does he mean ‘some fun’?!?! Is he going to seduce other girls while I’ll be waiting for him here? Kate thought to herself, but then she answered I promise! to make him think she can have fun also on her own, but in effect she knew she’d be waiting forever or eventually travel to Bridgeport and search for him.

David entered his rented car and drove away.

0268

Kate went straight to her bedroom, because the food was the last thing she had on mind at the moment.

0269

As she was going up the stairs she felt really bad, but when she lied down on the bed her bad mood was suddenly washed away by her thoughts about the future.

0270

0271

0272

This night she would dream about herself living in a house with a big garden and with a beautiful view on the sea. David would be in her dream too. She dreamed about him driving their kids to school, organizing vacations in exotic destinations and riding their horses on a beach during the sunset… but only the time would show if Kate’s dream was going to become true.

  1. Kate fell so hard and so fast for David. He seems sweet, but I hope she didn’t scare him away. I think she’s so desperate for a relationship after being “alone” most of her life. Poor dear. Her suggestion to stay out all night and watch the stars and fall asleep in the park was so romantic. Another great chapter!
