There he was.
Casually leaning against a wall with a cigarette hanging from his lips. A puff of smoke drifted away as his eyes slowly made contact with yours. You blush a tiny bit and turn back to your friends. Your best friend, Rose, gave you the look. It was the same look she always gave you before you did something stupid. And boy were you about to do something stupid...
You've known this guy for a few years now. Ever since freshman year you've had your eyes on him. He was a bad ass, a rebel, and not to mention a total hottie. Sadly though, he's never noticed you. You two were polar opposites. You were quiet and reserved unless you were with your close friends. You barely ever made the first move when introducing yourself to people.
A hand slips around your waist and you gasp a little. When you turn to see who it was, you saw him. "Hey babe, the names Cronus." You blush again and mumble. "I-I'm _____..." Cronus turns you towards him. "No need to be shy baby. I don't bite, unless that's something you're in to," he says with a wink. Rose rolls her eyes. "Um excuse me but I do believe you just interrupted us." She crosses her arms. "Well sorry lil lady. But I just couldn't help myself. Mind if I steal your friend for a while? I promise to bring her back before 12," Cronus says jokingly. You look at Rose with pleading eyes. This was your chance! You could finally talk to the boy of your dreams! Rose looks at you like your insane and then sighs. "Have her back at this spot by 10:00. My mom is picking us up at that time and if she's not here or you do something to her, I will personally hunt you down and skin you." Cronus just laughs. "I got it," he turns to you, "Well it looks like your mine for the day _____."
You and Cronus walk away with his arm still around your waist. "So what would you like to do, cutie?" You smile "Well first off I'd like to get to know you." "Ok..." Cronus says a bit taken back and lets his arm drop from your waist. "Usually girls just want to get the deed done and move on." You look at him. "Well I'm not most girls. To be honest I've wanted to talk to you for a while now... I've always thought you were just to cool for me to talk to..." Cronus looks at you and then laughs. "Well damn. I don't know why but that's actually kind of cute." You look at him shocked and then turn away blushing. "So I'm guessing you're the kinda girl who likes to take things slow," Cronus continues. "Is that bad?" You ask looking back at him. "No, it's just that's not usually my type," He scratches the back of his neck. "Oh..." you say looking away again. "But... I don't know why but I might actually be ok with that for you." Your head snaps back to Cronus. "Really?!" Cronus blushes just the tiniest bit. "Yeah really. Now come on. Let go to the arcade." He starts to walk away and you smile and quickly go to catch up to him.
You've had a blast with Cronus all day. He's actually one of the sweetest guys you've ever met. He won you a stuffed animal from the claw machine, (More like he wouldn't leave until he got it.) He bought your lunch even though you said you would buy your own, and he took you to the movies. Surprisingly the only thing he did was put his arm around you. Finally it was 8 pm and the boardwalk has lite up giving it a magical feeling. You and Cronus walk barefoot along the beach. Most people are over at the carnival rides so there's not many watching. You loosely hug your new stuffed bunny as you laugh at one of Cronus's jokes.
"You know you're nothing like I expected," You tell Cronus just as you walk under the pier. "Oh really now?" he stops and turns to you chuckling. "Yes really! You make everyone believe you're such a bad ass when you're actually a huge sweetheart!" Cronus smiles a little and then sits down in the sand. After a second his smile fades and he starts tracing shapes into the sand. "Well that's because I'm not. I don't want people to think I'm weak..." He looks around and then back to you as you sit down in front of him. He lets out a sigh, "Sometimes I wonder if anyone would care if I died... Sometimes I want to just to see..." You look at him shocked. "Cronus..." You crawl over to him and latch onto him causing him to fall back with you landing on top of him. You don't let go though. You squeeze tightly and whisper for only him to hear. "I would care. Please. Don't die Cronus." Cronus is in shock for a minute but then hug you back. "I won't _____." You hold on for a little longer and then start to sit up but Cronus suddenly pulls you back down slamming his lips on yours. You kiss back and it feels as if the world has shifted. You pull back blushing. "I promise to continue living, as long as you promise you'll be mine." You smiled and nod. "I promise."
Cronus sits up but doesn't let you leave his lap. "Speaking of promises... I should get you back now shouldn't I? It's almost 10." You and Cronus stand up and head back to where you're meeting Rose. As you wait he continues to give you small kisses and holds you close. Rose finally walks up and you give Cronus one last kiss before walking away with her. "So how was it?" Rose asks. "You know... I have to say that sometimes, stupid decisions are the best." Rose and you giggle and continue to walk away.
