… “I suggest, that we spend the whole day in bed, and do absolutely nothing.”
“Absolutely nothing?” I offered in return.
“Yes, absolutely nothing” Kissing me fully on the lips and rolling me over.
And so we did….
No, i will not reveal what happened next, i’m sorry but my story isn’t always going to be absolutely everything is it now? It’s not like you missed out on much, like she said, absolutely nothing happened…
Where should i begin? Oh yes.
"You know," she whispered, her hair lying in a pool splayed everywhere, a sense of placement amongst the mess. "I would never have expected this to happen"
I turn to look at her, a smile pulling across the edges of my mouth, “Are you suggesting something?” I jokingly suggest.
"Of course darling," she winked, as she moved her hand up and down my arm, leaving a trail of shivers. "Now, can i suggest something else?"
I smile, stroking her long hair, letting it fall through my fingertips entranced by their movements as they wrapped themselves against the curves of my fingers. “I’m liking these suggestions, what would it entail?”
"A surprise, but you’ll have to trust me.." She said, "Get dressed, we’re going out.."
She moved under the covers, giving me a kiss as she walked into the next room, watching her leave, her hair falling onto her shoulders, i called out “This wasn’t the surprise i was hoping for, you do realise its late?”
Popping her head around the door, her shoulders and the nape of her neck visible, “Its only 7pm dear, its just darker than usual”
Sighing, i fell back onto bed, wishing to just remain where we had, shutting my eyes, in an attempt to gather what remains of energy i had in order to prepare myself for the nights activities, whatever they may be,
I detested not knowing what was coming, i was curious.
I thought i heard something, but kept my eyes shut anyway.
A kiss on my lips out of nowhere, my eyes bolting open, shocked, my vision surrounded in a circle of her hair, her eyes glimmering in the light reflected off the bedside table.
"No, i know what you’re thinking, that’s not it, now get up and get moving, or we’ll miss out!"
Leaving in the car 10 minutes later, i looked out to the shops as they passed by, the street lights above flickering across my face as we raced by, i wondered, just wondered, where i was going, and where this would take me.

She took a long drag of a cigarette, leaning against the balcony railing, as one might do in cliché style in popular movies. The hot evening stars glimmering in her amazingly blue eyes.
Her hair floating in the air as a small breeze passed us by. Smoke trails wafting, circling into the sky above, disappearing into nothing.
I stood upwind of her as to avoid the smoke, i couldn’t stand the smell of it, and she knew it. She butted the cigarette against the railing, throwing it into the small bin behind her, smiling as it went in.
But it was a short lived, and grim smile. "You know i can’t keep doing this James, i can’t keep doing this, living this lie."
A lie she indeed lived, a face shrouded in mystery to society, like fog against the pale white full moon on a cold autumn evening.
"I have to leave you James, i have dreams aspirations, i want to travel the world, i’m not ready for a full time boyfriend like yourself, yes, what we had it was fun, enjoyable. But not for me".
She walked inside from the balcony, turning to the bar i had in my living room covered in photographs, shot glasses, tokens from my adventures.
She waved across the souvenirs whilst pouring a whisky for her and myself, "You’ve had what i want, i need to do this."
Tears started filling the bottom of her eyes, this was it. The end, we had been together unofficially for four months, with no strings attached…
But the strings which weren’t meant to form, had..
They were about to be severed.
"I have to do it this way, otherwise i’m just going to hurt you, i have to go."
Pecking me on the cheek and pulling me close, i was shocked, this was how she would leave me, i held her back, my face buried in her auburn hair, her lovely smelling hair.
And with that she walked out of my lounge door and my life forever, remaining only in my memories…
I moved to the balcony watching her leave my apartment,and so she joined the path to destiny, fate pathing the way for her, to her dreams.
