I can’t believe I’m going on my first date with Dahvie. I’m surprised I worked up my courage to tell him that I liked him more than a friend. Right now I am picking out the perfect outfit. We are supposed to leave in an hour. I decided to go with a black tank top with a skater boy jacket over top, with black skinny jeans. I walked into my bathroom and rummaged through my medicine cabinet for some make up. I put on black eye liner with grey eye shadow. I spiked my hair up a bit, and then I washed my hands. I grabbed my tooth brush and tooth paste. I brushed my teeth, flossed and used mouth wash. I took one last look in the mirror and decided I looked perfect. Just one last addition: a necklace that is an upside down cross, that Dahvie got me for my birthday.
I walked down the stairs to wait for Dahvie. A couple minutes went by and he starts coming down the stairs. In my eyes, it was like, all slow motion. I took in his appearance as he was descending down the stairs. He was wearing a black fancy shirt, and black capri shorts. He was wearing red eye shadow with black eye liner. His hair was straightened and a little spiked in the back. I smiled at him and he smiled back with a light blush on his cheeks. We were looking into each other’s eyes, which made my heart race. I took a deep breath.
“Ready to go?” I asked him sweetly. He smiled and nodded. We walked to the front door and I opened it for him. After he walked out I locked the door and unlocked my car. I opened the passenger door for him then I got in on my side. I haven’t told him where we are going. The first few minutes were awkward silence. I kept biting my lip trying to think of something. But Dahvie beat me to the punch.
“Where are you taking me?” He asked batting his eye lashes at me. I smiled at his cuteness.
“I’m not telling.” I said and stuck my tongue out at him playfully. He sat there fake pouting with his lower lip sticking out. I just giggled at him. We were talking the entire way there. When we were almost there I put a blindfold on him. I got out of the car and walked over to his side. I opened the door and I walked for him. I went and purchased tickets for us. We walked to the entrance gate and when we passed it I stopped and took his blindfold off. He gasped loudly.
“The zoo?! I love this place!” I laughed at his childness. He hugged me so tightly I felt like my eyes would pop out. I grabbed his hand and we walked over to the monkeys. He was watching the monkeys closely. He was staring in one’s eyes. It was funny because he was making animal noises at it getting it riled up. I pulled on his hand away from the monkeys. He aggravated it so much. We walked over to the girraffes and watched them for a minute. We walked around and looked at elephants, hippos, rhinos, deer, zebras, donkeys, bugs, gorrillas, tigers, leopards, and fish. We are now at the sharks.
We were amazed by how big they were. They were about as long as him. We got strange looks from people but we didn’t care. He rested his head on my shoulder and hugged me.
“Thanks for bringing me here.” He said into my shoulder.
“We still have two more places to go today.” I whispered in his ear. He nodded against me and we walked to the entrance. We walked to the car and saw that it was about two in the afternoon. Good timing. I thought to myself. We drove off to the next place.
“I’m having a lot of fun with you today.” He said vigorously.
“I’m having a lot of fun too.” I said with a smile. We got to the next place and we stepped out of the car. I looked at Dahvie and his eyes lit up once again.
“The carnival! I forgot it was still open.” He said jumping up and down excitedly. He grabbed my hand and he raced in there, with me trailing behind. He stopped at the knock-down booth. He was getting ready to get money out and I put my hands on his. I grabbed out my wallet and gave the man the money. We got three balls to start off with. Dahvie picked one up and the look on his face were so cute. He was concentrating on where to hit. He threw the ball and it missed. All three balls were a miss, so I gave the man some more money. I grabbed one ball and threw it at the bottles. I knocked all three of them down in one shot. I won a medium size bear that he picked out.
I grabbed his hand that wasn’t holding the bear and we walked to ring toss. Same thing happened, but with a smaller bear. He had both bears in one arm holding them. I put my arm around his waist and we started walking. We went through a few different booths and now we are at the balloon darts booth. We both won that one and got a System of a Down poster and a Marilyn Manson poster. We decided we were kind of hungry so we went and got lemonade from a food cart. We went over to another one and got an elephant ear to share. We went and sat on the benches where people were eating their food.
After we finished that we walked around some more and we found the blow up toys. We went into the bounce house even though the ticket guy was giving us insane looks. We bounced for about 4 minutes and went onto rock climbing. We raced to get to the top and I won. We went to a booth and they were giving out pop sickles. I got a blue and Dahvie got a purple. After we finished them my teeth were blue and his were purplish.
We laughed at each other’s appearances then threw the wrappers away. We went to one of the booths that sold items like shock pens. We searched the racks for some cool stuff and found a shock lighter. I looked over at Dahvie and he was looking at a mood necklace. He looked at me and gave me a puppy dog face. I chuckled and put it with my lighter. I paid for our items and they gave us a bag. We put the medium sized bear and the posters in with our stuff. I had Dahvie turn around to put the necklace around his neck. I grabbed onto his hand and walked with him.
We spotted the water squirt racing booth. I pulled out some money and we waited for the timer to go off to start. When it did we immediately started shooting. I didn’t have my finger all the way down because I wanted to let Dahvie win. I have mine three fourths of the way up and Dahvie’s was almost filled to the top. He kept squirting, and he won within seconds. I looked at him and smiled. I high fived him. He looked at the prizes he could pick from and picked a huge Hello Kitty stuffy. I laughed and shook my head.
We went onto the next booth: Ring toss. We walked up and paid the man. He gave us three rings to use.
“It’s all in the wrist.” I put my right hand atop of his and my left hand on his left shoulder. I was guiding him the entire time. I removed my left hand from his shoulder and let his hand go. He did what I just showed him and he got close to it. I told him its fine try again. He did it again and the ring bounced off the top of the bottle. He tried one more time with his last one and he got it around the bottle. He jumped up excitedly clapping is hands. He looked at the prizes and found a jar with jewelry in it. He found a Hello Kitty bracelet with a matching necklace.
I kissed his head and walked away with him. Next up: Duck Pond. I grabbed out some money and handed it over. Dahvie went up to the little pond and grabbed out a duck. He looked at the bottom and it had a number one on it. He didn’t get a high level duck but he still gets something. He looked and got a bag of pixie sticks. He put it in the bag with everything else and grabbed my hand. We went onto the booth next to it: Bean Bag Toss.
We paid the woman and she gave us four bags each. I took my turn then Dahvie took his. We both got 3 points. We kept going till one of us had gotten to 21 points. Dahvie won that round. I lost by one point. We went onto the second round. He had won that one again. One more time and he wins. I tossed my bag and got it in the slot worth five points. Dahvie’s turn. He got three points. We kept alternating turns and he won the third and final round. He got to pick a prize for winning all three rounds. He went to the shelf and picked out a little bear. Weird he could’ve gotten a big prize.
“Having fun?” I asked looking down at him smiling. He had a vast smile on his face and nodded.
“Yeah, I am. This is the best date I’ve ever had before. You treat me so much better than any girl has.” He said smiling. I rubbed his back and kissed his head.
“You deserve the best.” I responded. I smiled knowing he’s happy right now. We walked off to the next: Sailboat Races. We walked over to the booth, and paid. We got straws and when the guy said start we automatically started blowing through them. I won the race. I had gotten a plastic ring as my prize. We walked over to the last one: Test Your Strength. I paid the guy and saw a huge teddy bear that I was gonna win him. I grabbed the hammer and hit the target. I got it up to 8 on the scale. I got the rainbow teddy bear and gave it to Dahvie. We decided we should go put our stuff in the car.
We walked back to the entrance and re-entered. We finished with most of the booths and decided to go on a couple rides. We walked over to the Tilt A Whirl. We got in the seats and the ride started. We started laughing and getting giddy. The ride lasted for a couple minutes. When we got off we were really giddy. Dahvie almost fell over and I was laughing at him. He regained control and walked over to me. He grabbed my hand and walked over to the ride: Yo-Yo.
We paid and got in the seats. We buckled up and the workers walked to all of us to make sure we were fastened in correctly. After they checked the ride started up we went up a bunch of feet and it started spinning. The cool wind on my face felt really good. We spun in the air for about five minutes. We were all screaming and having a good time. Once the ride slowed and stopped us at the ground we got unbuckled and I walked over to Dahvie’s swing. He was giggling that it was fun.
“One more thing and then we can leave for the next thing.” I said to him. He nodded. We walked over to the Ferris Wheel. We waited for the ride to stop for our turn. Once an empty cart was at the bottom we got in it. When we were at the top I put my arm around him. We were looking up at the sky. I was rubbing up and down his arm. He set his head on my shoulder and let out a happy sigh. After about a minute he looked up at me.
I looked down into his eyes and there was a glimmer in his eyes. I noticed that we both were leaning inwards. After what felt like forever we kissed and it felt like fireworks. Know it sounds like a stereotype but its what it really felt like. It wasn’t one of our fake stage kisses it was a real kiss filled with love. We pulled away after a minute and we looked downwards and blushed. We got to the bottom and got off the ride. I took his hand and we headed towards the car.
He’s gonna love the next activity. I looked at the clock and saw it said it was five. It seems like the perfect time to go do that. I’m just glad that the awkwardness has gone away. We got in and drove to a restaurant but told Dahvie to stay in the car. I went in and grabbed the food I ordered earlier when Dahvie was in the bathroom. I paid for it and brought it out to the car. I put it in the backseat and got in the driver’s seat.
I drove for about twenty minutes then stopped and put the blindfold back on Dahvie. We were five minutes away and I wanted to make sure everything was perfect. When we got to the destination I got out and told Dahvie to stay in the car while I set everything up. It was about seven thirty now. I grabbed the food and a picnic blanket out of the backseat. I went and found a good spot then laid the blanket down and set up the food. After I finished it I went back to the car and had Dahvie get out. I kept the blindfold on him. We got to the blanket and I told him to sit down. He complied and once he did so I took the blindfold off. He gasped and started crying tears of joy.
“I love it Jayy. Thank you so much for the best date ever.” He cried out. He hugged me tightly again. All I did was smile and hug back. After he was done we sat and ate. We finished our food and laid down watching the stars twinkle. We cuddled together replaying the day’s events. Dahvie sat up a little and leaned down to kiss me. We stayed like that enjoying each other’s presence. He pulled away and laid back down.
“I love you Jayy.” He said sheepishly.
“I love you too. Always have.” I replied. He kissed me again and we started cuddling again. I was staring up at the sky thanking for this day. I just wish we could stay like this forever.
