may 5th: high school trip to italy
parker the third floor
"Come on Parker let's go!" Nikolai said as I walked behind them
"Yeah, yeah! I'm going as fast as I can." I replied in a sarcastic tone
"Want me to carry you? Because I will." Matt said looking back at me
"Your such an a**." I replied opening my purse to find my cigarettes
"You asked for it." He said turning around and running up behind me to pick me up
"Okay we'll see how long you can carry me." I said
"Want me to light that for you?" Aphrodite said as we all started walking at the same pace she took my cigarette lighting it for me
"I'm going to put you on my shoulders so you can see the view of the city." Matt said letting me out of his arms
"Nice idea!" I said laughing
Aphrodite took a puff off my cigarette and then handed it to me. I kept it in my mouth as I put my arms around Matt's neck as he put his arms open I put my legs over them and he preceded to give me a piggy back ride.
And if you're wondering, no me and Matt haven't hooked up yet but we've been flirting with each other non-stop since the flight here.
I leaned my head on his shoulder and smoked my cigarette, we had been walking around Rome for a while now. The remains of old buildings filled the city as we were making our way in the direction of the Trevi Fountain.
It was #1 on our itinerary to throw a coin into the fountain, we all got our coins ready and threw them in at the same time. After making our wishes we walked around some more until we found a cafe to eat lunch at.
I got a type of Grecian salad they had, soda, and of course dessert, we're in Italy so I had to! We decided to eat outside since it was such a nice day, well not a beautiful sun shining day but a nice one compared to the rain and storms we had in the past few days.
After eating lunch we walked around an artifacts museum, Matt trailed along with me looking at the pieces I was looking at.
"I don't feel very good I think I'm going to go back to the hotel." Aphrodite said with her arms crossed
"Okay, do you want me to go back with you?" I asked
"No, it's cool I'll take you back." Nikolai said volunteering himself leaving me and Matt alone
I turned around to see Matt behind me with a grin on his face.
"So, what should we do?" He asked looking at me
I played with my necklace as I bit my lip wondering what we would do alone.. for the next four hours without it being, you know, awkward.
We decided to walk up the Roman hills and see the view, talking on our way up, when we got there we sat down on one of the stone slabs to ensure we don't get grass stains on our clothes, we could see the sun behind the gray clouds among the many buildings.
"Can I just come out and say it already?" Matt said looking at me "I really like you, Parker and we've been flirting this whole time."
"I like you too." I said turning my body towards him
"But what about your boyfriend?" Matt asked
"Well this doesn't have to be serious and honestly I don't think me and him are going to last. It's just.. he's too nice, you know?" I responded sliding my finger around the marble we were sitting on
"Nothing serious, I like that." He replied looking out to the city
I leaned in to kiss him, he kissed me back. Before I knew it we were both there making out. I could hear an Italian love song playing in my head.
But I knew this wouldn't last, and I knew this would ruin what I already had. But what did I have? Aiden was getting to be too busy and I was going to college soon. My life, what would make of it? But I'm in Italy so why worry about that now.
He put my hand on the back of my neck and pulled me closer as we passionately kissed, each time our lips touched it only made me want more. I could feel his other hand touching my leg..
'It's nothing serious' I reminded myself as I put my arms around his neck
