Chapter 4 Tessa's POV
The kiss ended as quickly as it started. I pulled away as soon as
I felt his lips touch mine. Oh how I wanted to kiss him; I've been
dreaming about this day since I was five. But it didn't seem right to
kiss a guy who I've only just actually meant, and who I wasn't on the
best terms with right now.
It took him a few seconds to open his eyes. When he realized what
he did, he blushed.
"Oh. Um... I'm uh... I'm sorry. That was really uncalled for,"
he stumbled. I looked down, my face heating up. After a few minutes,
I mumbled, "I better... I uh... Better go."
He quickly nodded and I climbed onto my horse. Taking one look at
the waterfall-careful not to look at Matt- we trotted away.
"Oh. My. Gawd. Tessa Lynn Miller you have GOT to give me the
deets!" Megan screamed into the phone. I sighed.
"Megan I don't wanna talk about this," I whined, laying my head on
the desk in my room. It was nothing special. My room, I mean. It
has just plain whit walls with a bed, a desk, a dresser, a vanity for
make-up, a closet, and a butterfly chair. The kiss, though. THAT was
unexplainable. And I told her that.
"Tess, you're such a horrible liar! Were there fireworks? Was it
all romantic or was it sort of rushed or forced?"
"Megan, there were no fireworks. And I didn't pay attention to
the quality of it, I was surprised that "it" happened at all."
"Well since you obviously aren't going to give me any information,
meet me at Romolos in 30."
"We're buying chocolate?" I asked, confused. But she already hung
up. I put my iPhone in my pocket, grabbed my jacket, and thundered
down the stairs.
"Hey dad, where's mom?" I asked my dad. He was... Making
cookies? I looked nervously at him as he replied.
"Don't look so surprised," he chuckled, "I needed an excuse to
where your moms 'sexy chef' apron. She's at the Strausss' house."
I bit my lip, giggled a little, and then threw on my boots.
Waving goodbye, I got into my dad's pickup and drove to Romolos.
Pulling into the parking lot, I grabbed my purse and walked
inside. The smell of peppermint, cookies, and coffee drifted through
the air. In the corner of the café area was a Christmas tree that had
musical lights and presents underneath it. I smiled to myself.
Christmas is my favorite time of the year.
"Tess! Over here!" someone yelled. I turned to look. Sitting on
one of the couches with a stack of magazines and a hot chocolate was
Megan. I had to laugh at the little at the Santa hat perched on her
I walked over to her and sat down. Without giving me a chance to
day hi, she started in.
"So, tell me ALL about this Matt encounter!"
"Um... Well... I decided to go ride my horse..."
She gave me a blank stare, then held up her hand, "Woah woah woah,
what were you doing riding your horse in the middle of winter?"
I just shrugged. "I don't know... I was going to visit the
"THE WATERFALL?!? WHAT THE HELL WERE YOU DOING THERE?!?"
People were starting to stare. "Megan," I whispered, trying to
settle her down, "I didn't go swimming or anything, I just sat on the
bank! Besides, it's not like there's snow or anything."
She looked relieved, and I wondered why she was so worried. She
must've read my mind because she said, "Matt probably thought you were
crazy for going out there in the middle of winter."
I rolled my eyes. "There's no snow! And plus, what would he be
doing out there anyways?"
Megan shook her head. "I don't know," she replied, "anything else
I debated about telling her that we kissed. Who knew how she
"No," I said, "nothing else."
She nodded, then took a sip of her hot chocolate. "Here, I
ordered you one too," she said, handing me mine.
"Thanks." We drank in silence. Then, my phone went off.
-NEW TEXT FROM BRYON BRASWELL-
Bryon: Hey, Megan told me 'bout your encounter with Matt...
I sighed. "Megan, you told Bryon too?"
She blinked innocently. "He's our best friend, I thought he
I raised my eyebrows and replied to Bryon.
-Messages to: Bryon-
Me: Yeah, not much to tell
Bryon: Aw, too bad
Me: ... Uh yeah...
Was I overreacting or did it seem like everyone was in my space?
I felt like telling them all that it was none of their business, that
they didn't need to know every detail. Right now, I just wanted to
escape the rush. So I did.
