Tuesday night, after a miserable 8 straight days of working, Brandon and I were laying in bed, discussing the movie we had just watched, Changeling. SUPER good btw, omg. Jolie was amazing, and the story was amazing...it was just awesome!
So anyways, we're talking and I kind of just blurted out, "I can't believe you're still here!"
"What do you mean 'here'?" He asked.
"I dunno it's just...most guys would have run off by now." I said uncomfortably.
"Well I'm not like most guys." He stated.
"I know." I smiled, "But still...as soon as I start to get comfortable with someone, that's usually when they split."
"Well you don't have to worry about that. I'm gonna be here for a while."
"Yea, they all say that." I sighed.
"You gotta give me some credit! I wouldn't drive 25 minutes everyday, or miss work if I wasn't really into you."
"You can't blame me for missing work!" I interjected, "I told you to get up this morning, but you didn't want to!"
"Yea, that's the point. I didn't want to leave. I wanted to stay here. With you."
He stared at me so intensely that I started to blush.
"So...you never answered that question I asked you before." He said with a glint in his eye.
"What question?" I stalled.
"You know, about what you want out of this...?"
I sighed and pulled the covers up over my head.
"Well...I don't know! I mean, what do you expect from me? Do you not want me to see other people, do you-"
"Of course I don't!" He interrupted, momentarily scattering my thoughts.
"You don't?" I asked, genuinely surprised.
"Soo...you're not...seeing other people?" I said in a small voice.
"No, I'm not." He said, matter-of-factly.
"So, if I was, how would you feel about that?"
"If I heard you were seeing other people, I'd say, 'Ok now I know', and move on. I wouldn't talk to you anymore."
"Hmm." A light came on in my head, "So, let me get this straight: if you're not seeing other people, and I'm not seeing other people, wouldn't you call this situation a relationship?"
"Yea, I guess you would."
"Well then there's just one thing missing!"
"What's missing?" He asked.
"You don't know??" I teased.
"No..." He looked thoughtful.
"Do I need to spell it out for you?"
"Yea I guess!" He smiled.
"Y-O-U H-A-V-E T-O A-S-K..." I began to spell.
"I have to ask you to be my girlfriend?" He grinned, flashing his brilliantly white teeth.
"Yes, you do." I said with a smile.
"Ok," He blushed crimson, "Do you wanna be my girlfriend?" He asked.
"Sure." I said with a huge smile.
Then he pulled me in for a big kiss and he held me tight till we fell asleep.
