As the party starts to fade, she realizes it might be time for her to go home. “Joshua, I have to go. It was….”. Joshua interrupts Michelle. “Do you have to go? I mean just stay a little longer?” Michelle wanted to stay so bad but she knew sooner or later her father would be wondering where she was. “I’m sorry, Joshua, but I really have to go. I wish I could stay with you and keep talking about old times.” Joshua smiles, as he remembers all the silly things they did when they were younger, before he got his first boner.
Michelle and Joshua get deeper and deeper into the conversation, asking questions and getting to know each other again. Michelle finally tells Joshua she has to go and his face turns into the face that made her what to stay, but she couldn’t. She sees Aaliyah walking towards the door talking to Roberto. Michelle walks passed them and then she hears Joshua’s lovely voice. “Wait! I want to ask you something!” She stops and turns around, looks at him with the eyes he loved to look into. “Man, your eyes are so pretty. I look at your eyes and I just feel up with happiness.” Michelle blushes. “ I want to keep talking, so here is my number and maybe we can sit together during lunch.” Michelle thought Joshua moving a little fast for them “getting to know each other better”, but she wanted to spend as much time as she could with him.
Aaliyah is driving since Michelle drove them to the party. Aaliyah’s phone rings and she answers. Michelle looks out the window, dreaming about Joshua. She wish she could go back and keep talking to him. He made her feel so different and ALIVE. Aaliyah drives up to her house and she waves goodbye to Michelle and gives her a kiss on cheek. Michelle and Aaliyah always did that, so it was abnormal and not weird when they did it. Michelle makes her way to the driver’s side and makes her way home. She constantly thinks of everything that she did with Joshua. The way he laughed, smiled, grinned, and all the above. She drives into her driveway, no surprise, she sees that her father is not home. She walks into the house feeling as if something had changed in the house but she wasn’t sure what it was. She decides its best to take a shower and go to bed.
After a nice, hot shower she goes to bed. Her skin was soft and face was smooth, her body was smelling intoxicating. She closed her eyes ready to spend the next nine hours dreaming about Joshua.
