saturday 29th of september, 2012;
This was the only time I could think peacefully and relax without the interruptions of those I live with because they had already learnt their lesson. Aria witnessed a somewhat angry side of me when she began to knock hard on the bathroom door whilst yelling 'hurry up' because she had to fix her hair for a date with Liam. I used every moment of showering or doing my hair as time to think, recap on what had happened either that day or week. I turned off the shower head, wrapped the large towel around my torso and stepped out of the shower with a smile on my face.
It had finally sunk in that Scott and I were now a couple. It had taken a couple days or perhaps the entire week because it seemed too far-fetched as if it was a pathetic little high school prank. It seemed too hard to believe that he had feelings for me; I didn't have much to offer. I was tall, a tad on the lanky side and I was a girl who wasn't blessed with outrageous curves.
I shook my head; I was much too negative like Scott had said one or twice and one day I'd be nicer to myself, I wouldn't put so much pressure on myself. I dried my hair with the towel before wrapping it around me yet again, securing it before poking my head out the door and glancing both ways of the hallway.
I quickly gathered the clothes that I had previously worn and ran toward my bedroom which wasn't very far but it'd be embarrassing being caught. I let out a sigh as I had reached the door, closing it behind me in a huff before turning on my heel.
I jumped almost six foot in the air once seeing Scott sitting on the bed, my heart pounded to the extent that I could hear it in my ears. "What are you doing here?" I questioned, dumping my clothes and holding the towel tightly to my body.
I didn't want to take any chances of it falling.
"I thought I'd visit you" Scott smiled, his eyes dropping for a moment before looking back up. "I didn't choose the right timing though" he added, adding a small laugh.
I shook my head and smiled, "do you mind just letting me get dressed and then we can hang out?"
"Of course" Scott said with a nod as he stood and walked out the bedroom, standing outside the door before closing it.
"I won't be long" I called out, searching for a pair of underwear and a bra before letting my towel drop. I quickly got dressed, slipping on my jeans and shrugging on my Brown sweatshirt.
"What are you doing out here, dude?" I heard Liam's voice from the opposite side of the door. Was he always here? I sighed before listening to their conversation, fixing the zipper of my jeans.
"Ally's changing, I'm giving her privacy" Scott replied; such a good boyfriend, he was.
"You realise you probably won't get laid for months" Liam said, "Ally doesn't seem like the type who'll want to jump straight into it."
"Liam, that doesn't even matter."
"You'll be feeling the pain after a month, I can bet you on that one" Liam said.
I opened the door after that comment; I know Liam was just being a 'wise' friend with 'wisdom' but he was getting on my last nerves. I was almost certain that relationships didn't just consist of kissing and feeling each other up.
"Mind if I burrow my boyfriend, Liam?" I asked and without waiting for a reply, I took Scott's hand and pulled him into my bedroom, closing the door behind us.
"You look great."
"You need to stop lying" I laughed, looking down at my sloppy outfit choice and shaking my head. "I knew I should have put more effort into my outfit" I added, smiling.
"I think you look great, no matter what."
I blushed and shook my head, laughing yet again. "You really need to stop it, Scott" I spoke, standing in front of him.
Scott kissed my cheek, "what would you like to do today?" he asked, smiling brightly.
"I don't really want to go out considering I'm feeling fairly lazy" I paused, "so, would you like to watch a movie?"
"Yeah, of course" Scott nodded, holding my hands and pulling me gently toward the bed. He laid down, resting against my collection of pillows and bringing me close to him.
"Someone needs to put the dvd on" I stated with a laugh. "Right" Scott replied with a chuckle, moving his arm from around me and letting me stand.
"What did you want to-"
"Do you watch sci-"
"Scott, you're not helping me here" I paused, he was laying on my bed whilst grinning back at me. "Fine but don't complain if you don't like it" I said, pressing the dvd into the player, picking up the remote and laying back down with Scott.
"What'd you choose?"
"The Island" I smiled; it was one of my favourite movies. "Who does it have in it?" Scott questioned, pulling me close as I comfortably rested my head on his chest.
"Ewan McGregor and-"
"I liked him in the Star Wars movies" Scott admitted with a casual laugh. "And Scar Jo" I added and there was surprisingly no answer from Scott like I had expected.
We both fell silent as the movie began to play. I could quote almost every single line and had to restrain myself from doing so. I didn't want to be seen as a dork to my own boyfriend, he'd have something to tell the others about. I always feared being spoken about.
"I'm so jealous of Scarlett" I admitted with a sigh.
"She's the most perfect woman to walk this planet" I paused, "perfect hair, perfect lips, perfect body."
"You're pretty perfect too, y'know" Scott replied.
I blushed but shook my head, "you're so ridiculous."
"No, really, you are" Scott said quickly, tapping my chin lightly in order to lead my gaze toward him. I looked up at him with a small smile, my blush still evident. "You have to believe me when I say these things" he added.
"But they're hard to believe."
We both didn't speak after I had confessed, we simply looked at each other and for once in my life, I didn't feel as awkward as ever. He kissed me softly on the lips, gently pulling me on top of him.
I pulled away gently, "I'm not squishing you?"
"No, of course not" Scott shook his head with a smile.
And this time my lips found his.
