Chapter4: Dancing in the moonlight
When Aeris asleep early the next morning, she had the strangest dream. It wasnt the one with her split in half, but that she and Leo were togethere kissing each othere. When she woke up she Either those dreams mean something, or Im just losing my mind she then got out bed and smelled something cooking. She opened the door and looked around and crept toward the kitchen, and saw Leo making breakfast. He then turned around and saw her.
-Morning Aeris He smiled softly, Aeris only nodded in response, and blinked. Leo then turned back and kept cooking Had a good rest?
-Said Aeris walking in to the kitchen. Leo then turned around and looked at her wide eyed with a soft blush appearing on his face
-What? She then looked down and saw that she was almost naked, except for her bra and underwear. She quickly covered herself blushing madly, and looked at Leo WHAT THE HELL ARE YA STARING AT?! But for some reason, she didnt mind at all, she even enjoyed Leo looking at her like that. Leo looked down still blushing
How about youll go and get dressed
. And Ill finish setting the table Before he could finish, Aeris had already rushed to her room, and closed the door. She then let out a deep sigh. She then picked up a pink T-shirt with some jeans and put them on, and walked back to the kitchen where everything was ready and Leo was already eating. Aeris sat down and began eating as well. Suddenly Leo spoke up
-Hey, Aeris, do you have any plans tonight? Aeris almost choked on her food as she looked at Leo with wide eyes
. I dont think so
. Wh-why do you ask? She gulped nerviously
I thought maybe you wanted to go somewhere
. If thats cool with you? Aeris blinked again and felt her heart beating like crazy, as if it was ready to jump out of her chest throat Is
. Is he asking me out? Does that mean he has something for me? Or maybe were gonna go out as friends? Those questions raced through her head at extreme speeds, moments seemed like eternities. She looked at Leo again, almost getting lost in his eyes
. Its ok
. She smiled warmly, and blushed even more. After they finished their breakfast, Aeris went to her room and looked at the mirror, and took a deep breath Ok
. Calm down girl
. everything is gonna be ok
. You're just gonna go out with him
It isnt date or anything
. So no need to be nervious
She looked at her reflection and almost screamed. From the mirror stared herself, but her eyes were cold and evil.
-What are ya staring at? You look like youve seen a ghost? Said the Aeris in the mirror in cold emmotionless voice.
. Who are you? Aeris looked at her mirror image with frightened eyes
-Im you idiot! Said the mirror Aeris in a harsh voice - now listen! You are making a great mistake! Thats Leo! A total prick! The biggest idiot of the world! You should spit at him!
- Aeris said almost in a whisper. The mirror image only laughed coldly and smirked
-I thought so
. You are pathetic
- Suddenly Aeris grabbed the neares she found and threw in the mirror
-I SAID SHUT THE FUCK UP!!!! The mirror broke into manya tiny pieces as Aeris dropped to her knees takeing deep breaths. Just then Leo opened the door and saw her
-Aeris! He rushed to her and looked at her Are you ok? Aeris didnt say anything, she only burried her head in his chest, Leo huged her and then began brushing her back
Calm down He looked at her Are you hurt?
. No Im fine
. She said weakly. Leo noded in response, and looked at the broken mirror
-How did that happen?
My comb slipped
- Leo noded again, and then he stood up, Aeris wanted to grab his hand and hug him again, she didnt know why, but for some reason, it gave her peace when he hugged her. Leo took a broom and swept the glass away
-You got lucky that the glass didnt hit you Aeris didnt say anything, she just kept sitting on the floor looking toward nothing Why
. Why is he making me feel so odd
. Nobody has ever made me feel like this
.She then felt someones hand on her shoulder, she turned around and saw Leo
-Aeris are you, ok? She only noded Hey listen, if you dont wanna go and just stay home its ok with me
-What? Aeris looked confused at him We already decided we're going out so let's go Leo shrugged
-Ok, its your call
- He then headed towards the door But be more careful next time After that he winked to her and left. Aeris stood for minutes staring at the door; she then dropped on her bed and whispered
- After that she closed her eyes.
Later that night:
Aeris was getting ready in her room. Leo didnt tell her where they were going, but he said that she should wear something elegant, Aeris kept looking trough her closet. Until she found a red dress, it was pretty nice and was slightly revealing. She smiled and took it, after putting it on and observed her selfe in the mirror, she heared a knock at the door
-Its opened Aeris then turned around, and saw Leo, they way he looked, made Aeris' eyes almost fly out of her sockets and her chin drop down on the floor. Leo wore a black suit, with a tie, he looked absolutely gorgeous. Aeris gulped as more thought began to rush through her mind Man
Hes so good looking
. I just want to
. STOP!!! CONTROL YOURESELF!!!! Aeris quickly snapped outof her trance, and looked at Leo again
-Hey, looking pretty good Leo blushed softly
Thanks, you're looking beautiful yourself Aeris felt her cheek getting red Beautiful
he thinks Im beautiful
-So, shall we go? Leo then gave her his hand, Aeris took it slowly, and they both went outside. While walking more and more thoughts raced trough Aeris' mind Does he like me? Do I like him? Am I going crazy? Is this all a dream? She was so lost in her mind that she didnt notice them coming to a french restaurant, when she snapped out, she looked at the restaurant and whistled
-Wow! Leo! You surprise me, ya know how much this place cost? How can you afford it? Leo looked at her
-A good magician never reveals his tricks He winked to her, Aeris blushed even more and tried to hold her laugh. They both entered the restaurant, and took a seat. After they ate, Aeris looked outside and sighed, the moon was shining brightly and the orckestore was playing a romantic tune. Suddenly Leo gave her his hand. Aeris blinked, and looked at his hand
-Shall we dance? Asked Leo with a smile, Aeris toock his hand and stood up
-Sure They both went to the dance floor, and began dancing. Both Leo and Aeris moved graciously. Aeris was in heaven, when the dance ended, she looked at Leo, and noticed that she was inches away from his lips. She wanted to come closer to close the gap, but something stopped her, as someone or something was holding her. Leo looked confused at her and blinked
. Can we go home, please? Leo was still confused, but noded. When they came back home, Aeris went towards her room, but before opening the door, she looked at Leo
had fun tonight Leo noded and kissed her cheek softly.
-No prob Aeris, sweet dreams He then walked towards his room and closed the door, Aeris stood frozen in her place, she then placed her hand on her cheek and rubbed it slowly. Her heart was beating like mad right now, her lungs felt empty and her mind was blank. She slowly reached for the knob, and entered her room, she then laid in her bed, and looked up He
. He.Kissed me
does that mean
. Before she could finish her mind wandered off and she fell asleep, dreaming of her and Leo kissing eachother
