Last night, I went on my first ever stargazing date! It was so lovely, ah. He came over first and we ended up helping one of our mutual friends with guy problems, and eventually we decided to sneak out of my house together. So around 2:40 AM, we hopped out of my window, onto the roof, and jumped off the fence. We decided to go to the field that we first hung out at when we sneaked out for each other for the first time. I didn’t know the area very well.. Well, at least in the dark and he kept on taking me through these dark ass scary trails. It freaked me the fuck out, oh my god. It was legitimately pitch black between tree’s and shit. Eventually, we got to the field and the skies were clear. We were planning on laying on the grass, but it was wet so we moved to a bench. From the bench, I took off my sweater and laid it on the concrete floor and sat down. Then, he suggested we go onto the playground set and watch the stars from there. We laid out our jackets/sweaters on the little playground bridge and laid down besides each other. We counted 10 shooting stars when we were laying there together! Well, we saw more, but we both saw 10 together. While we were waiting for more shooting stars, he was teaching me how to tell the constellations. It was so nice just laying there besides each other looking up at the stars.
It was nearing four o’clock AM and we decided to walk back to my place. Of course, he takes me through more scary trails. My hissy fits and tantrums didn’t work, haha. On our way back, we saw the word “locate” spray painted onto the ground and he read it as “lactate.” HAHA, we were laughing so hard, oh my god. Also, we started saying weird ass words like “yam” and “kwon” repeatedly in different tones and jesus I was on the ground dying, LOL. We unfortunately got back to my place after my mom woke up so we had to be EXTREMELY quiet climbing back onto my roof. While we were waiting for my mom to leave, we were watching YouTube videos and laughing our asses off. Once, my mom left, we were messing around, poking each other, tickling, biting each other, etc. Finally when we calmed down, he looked at me and said, “Salena..I…” and I’m just like, “…yes…?”
”.. I think I..”
“… What is it D?”
“I think I love you.”
Hugest aw came out of my mouth ever! Haha.
“I’ve never said that to any girl in my whole entire life.”
I told him I loved him too, and of course not because he said it first, it’s because I meant it as well. This morning was the first time we ever said that to each other ever. :3 Afterwards, we were super giddy and smiley and ah, he was so adorable. He was smiling so hugely! We decided to watch Help! since I told him how funny it was and then my dad came home. Once he came home, we both just knocked out. We woke up around 12:20 PM today and just laid in bed messing around with each other once again until about 1:15 PM when he left.
“Tonight we are adventurers my darling!”
I had one of the best nights of my life last night, not even over exaggerating. I had loads of fun! Since his phone isn’t currently working, we were messaging each other back and forth on Facebook keeping each other updated on where we’d meet, what time we’d meet, and when we were going to leave home. We chose a spot that was basically like the halfway point between our houses and it took us about 10 minutes to walk there. When I saw him, I sprinted towards him and we hugged. I haven’t seen him in like a week, LOL. I know, I’m so weak but I was so used to seeing his face everyday at school.
Once we met up, we decided to go find a place to light up some fireworks. He was like, “do you want to go that way? Or do you want to take the creepy trail way?” And I was like, “I don’t care. Whichever you want.” And of course, he chooses the dark creepy trail way, LOL. Fucker kept trying to scare me and shit too! We walked and talked in the dark, following the trail behind some houses until we came upon a cul-de-sac and decided to light our first one. He lit the first one (because I made him, LOL. I was scared okay? Gosh. Haha!), then I lit the second one. We didn’t know what they’d do, so we just lit them and ran. After a couple more, we decided to continue on walking to wherever our feet took us. We then came across another cul-de-sac that was connected to a park and a play field. It was so nice! The stars were clearly visible and the moon was too! He decided to light some more on the grass (it was wet.. I know. I was freaking the fuck out too, LOL. I thought we were going to make the whole neighborhood burn down), while I was watching. He grabbed me and made me light some and I kept on throwing them too early because I was freaking out, haha. After awhile, we played on the playground in the dark and he was like, “let’s go down the slide!” So we did. I went down first then he did. It was hilarious to watch because he’s extremely tall and it looked like he would’ve gotten stuck, LOL. We walked back to the bench where we placed all our fireworks, lighters, jackets (it was so hot from running around and laughing), etc. and decided to light a few more up and then clean up. He threw two of the firecrackers that were made to have a weird whistling noise, and when he threw them, they didn’t. So I told him, “hey! Third ones a charm! And also, this is our third attempt in hanging out and look what happened, it worked!” He made me light the third one and when I threw it, it whistled! Haha. He grabbed all the trash, threw it away, and when he came back, we were side hugging I believe, AND I SAW MY FIRST EVER SHOOTING STAR! In all my 16 years of living, I’ve never seen a shooting star until last night. I was freaking out and shit and he was like, “you know what they say about shooting stars?” And I’m like, “what?” He goes, “they say, you have to kiss the person you see a shooting star with.” So we kissed and as I pulled away, he was like, “.. More than once.” So we kissed again. Then when I pulled away, he was like, “I was just joking about all that. They don’t really say that.” I smiled like a fool and hugged him some more. After I saw the shooting star, he stood behind me and wrapped his arms around me and asked, “do you know how to tell the constellations?” He grabbed my hand and pointed to The Little Dipper and Orion’s Belt which apparently is his favorite constellation. Gah! My dream to go star gazing and whatnot has been finally crossed off my bucket list. Then we were off again!
We walked hand-in-hand talking about our childhood on how we’d always role play with Pokemon and World of Warcraft and whatnot. As we were walking through a neighborhood, we saw a bunny! We kept walking and telling each other stories about our encounters with drugs, people, etc. We decided to head back to my place to watch 21 Jump Street since he’s never seen it before and when we were on our way back, we walked by this apartment complex and decided to light a few more whistlers. We threw them and then ran off. When we were getting closer to my house, we saw this little thing on the ground which we both thought was a slug. He bent over to pick it up when he realized it was actually shit he touched, HADLAJSLDJKASHAHAHAHA. I WAS LAUGHING SO HARD OH MY GOD. It was so cute though, when we were walking and I was walking on the outside part of the sidewalk, he was like, “no. Come on this side. I don’t want you to get hit by a car.” Bajlkdajskdaawwwww, haha. I swear, those were the words that came out of my mouth. Complete. Utter. Gibberish, LOL.
We got to my place and he boosted me up onto the roof and he followed behind. We watched 21 Jump Street and when the movie finished, we had about 20 minutes left before my mom left to work. He attempted to take a quick little nap, but he ended up staying awake with me. When my mom left, we raided the kitchen and ate so many fruits. Then, we came back upstairs and I gave him his gift I bought him when I went to Leavenworth. We listened to music, harmonized terribly with our horrible voices together, and he played some songs on the guitar. We were singing along to songs like Let’s Stay Together by Al Green, I Want To Hold Your Hand by The Beatles, You Are The Sunshine Of My LIfe by Stevie Wonder, Wouldn’t It Be Nice by The Beach Boys, and Island On The Sun by Weezer. When we were listening to Let’s Stay Together, he was laying on his tummy across my bed and he pulled me in closer in the beginning of the song when it went, “I… I’m so in love with you.” And when we were listening to I Want To Hold Your Hand, he was like, “totally cheesy moment here,” and grabs my hand while singing along. Hahaha!
He left around 5:50 this morning and I have a video on my phone of him throwing one of those whistlers, but you can’t see him since it was in the dark, but yeah! I’ll upload that in a bit. c: Throughout the night, I seriously thought I was dreaming. I didn’t believe that I was out there spending time with him and everything just felt like a movie. Everything just worked out perfectly, and gah. It was a magnificent night and I’ve never had that much fun wandering around in the streets before. Definitely one of the best nights of my life so far. Everything just felt so surreal, but in the best kind of way possible.
