SATURDAY OCTOBER 2; The actors all have the weekend off, so we're going to have fun! The Fishing Hole is having a music festival. So you can go to that or just stay in bed. It's another cold day in Eagle Bay, so dress warmly.
I slipped my foot into my heel and stood up, making my way out of my bedroom and down the stairs, into the kitchen.
David turned around and smiled. He walked over and wrapped his arms around my waist, pulling my body against his, "You look perfect."
I bit my lip, smiling, "You're not too bad yourself Mr.Woodsen. But we need to go, we don't want to be late."
"I know. Alright, you have everything?"
I checked my bag one last time before nodding, "Yeah, let's go."
I walked into the french restaurant hand in hand with David, my eyes searching for my brother and parents.
"Daisy!" My head turned at the sound of my voice and saw my dad waving at me. We walked over to the table and said our hellos before both taking a seat.
"I hate to rush this but i have a brunch tomorrow morning so we need to make this quick, dear," My mom said before i had even had a chance to place my clutch down. David's hand found mine underneath the table and he gave me a small squeeze.
I smiled, rolling my eyes on the inside, "Of course mother."
"So, what's the news. Did David knock you up like Poppy?" Hayden took a huge bite out of his roll.
I glared at him, "F.ck you."
"Language," My father murmured, not even looking up from his blackberry.
"I'm 26 years old, dad."
"You'll always be my little girl, Daisy."
I snorted, "I was never your little girl."
"Yeah because you were too busy being the wh.re of the upper east side," Hayden retorted.
"Hayden!" My mother gasped.
"God, why are you in such a bad mood, Hayd?"
"Hayden's had a bad day, sweetie." My mother said softly.
"Why?" My eyes flashed back and forth from Hayden to my mom.
"Kayla's back in town, again," My dad replied. He still hadn't put down his phone.
I quirked an eyebrow, "Kayla as in the girl you had a huge crush on in like eigth grade. Why do you still care about her?"
"Daisy, they went out for a year during college."
"Oh," I said, feeling stupid. "Well you're too good for her anyway."
"Didn't you have some announcement or something?" Hayden asked, glancing down at his watch.
David cleared his throat and we all looked at him. Even my dad glanced up from whatever he was typing. My mom blushed, clearly embarrased that David had just witnessed our conversation. It was like we had all forgotten he was there.
"Well, as you can tell, me and David are back together," I started.
"They don't even know we're back together?!" David hissed.
I ignored him, "And, well, he proposed. And i said yes!"
My mom chocked on her drink.
My dad muttured a congrats before taking a sip of his scotch and returning to his phone.
Hayden rolled his eyes.
David looked at me out of the corner of his eye.
I glanced at my mom.
She closed her eyes, shaking her head, "I need some air."
"Mom!" I stood up, following her out of the restaurant.
"When did he propose?"
"I don't know, a few days ago?"
"And you actually said yes."
"I did," I sighed. I didn't know what she wanted me to say. I didn't know why she was so mad. I thought she liked David.
"I don't even know his family."
"Is that the problem? Because i can easily fix that. You want to meet his mom, great, we can set up a dinner next week."
"Tha'ts not all."
"Then what mom? Why are you so mad that i'm finally happy?! After all those years. After what happened over the summer. I thought that we had finally figured everything out." I looked at her but she was starting at the ground, silent. "Do you not like him or something?"
"No, sweetie, i love David. It's just...he's no-"
"No what? He's no Nathan?" She stayed silent and i knew i had gotten it right, "I know he's no Nathan, mom. But i love him and i want to spend the rest of my life with him, wether you like it or not. Now you can either accept that and say that you're happy for me or you can leave right now and i won't bother sending you a wedding invitation."
"You love him?"
I nodded, "I really, really, love him."
Slowly, a smile began to form, "Then i'm happy for you."
I grinned, embracing her in a hug, "Thanks mom."
"Alright, now let me see that ring."
