I love doing nice things for people, but I hate it when I can’t even get a simple thank you or the slightest hint of gratitude. I’m getting tired of bending over backwards for people who just stick around for their personal benefit.
You looked down at your phone for the 100th time and swear that more time has passed then what your clock is telling you.
Taehyung had asked you out for your first date yesterday and refused to tell you where he had chosen to go.
He said that he would pick you up at 3:00 pm on the dot and your clock is insisting its only 2:30.
'Only a half hour left, not that long of a wait.' You thought to yourself.
You let out a loud sigh and sit back on the couch in your living room. You were really nervous about where he had planned to go for your date. He is so unpredictable and spontaneous it’s practically impossible to guess where he would pick. You had tried to get some kind of hint out of him but he was tight lipped and refused to give any kind of real answer.
You had spent most of the morning getting ready and trying on different outfits to see which ones you liked best. You finally just went with plain jeans, a white t-shirt and some comfortable shoes. He did at least tell you to dress comfortably. You went with a natural look because he always told you that he loved how you looked with out make up.
While thinking back over what you did this morning you didn’t realize how much time had passed and you heard a knock on your door.
You quickly snapped out of your thoughts, straightened yourself up and went to the door. You looked out the peep hole to see that it was Taehyung just like you hoped and you quickly opened the door, with a big smile plastered to your face.
"Hey" Taehyung said, with his smile also wide on his face.
"Hey." You said, in a bit of a daze at how good he looked.
You both must have been thinking the same thing when you picked out your outfit that morning. He was also wearing jeans, and a white tee.
"Nice outfit." He complimented, pointing out the similarities.
"Same to you." You replied.
"Well are you ready to go?" Taehyung asked, raising an eyebrow.
"Yep, all set." You said making sure your phone and keys were in your pocket and that the door was locked behind you.
He walked you to the car and opened the door for you and jogged back over to the driver side.
Once in route you decided that you would try one more time to get him to spill where he had planned to take you, only to fail again. He still refused to tell you where he was taking you.
After a while of riding and talking about everything and anything you realized where he was taking you.
You could see the rides from the road and it hit you that he was taking you to an amusement park. Your stomach dropped.
Heights freaked you out to no end.
But you really didn’t want to ruin the plan that he had. You just hoped and prayed that he wouldn’t want to get on anything too high.
He pulled into the parking lot and got out of the car and quickly opened the door for you and started walking with you, hand in hand, to the ticket booth. You both received your bracelets and continued into the park.
Once inside you guys got on all the little kiddy rides and ate all the good food they offered. But the whole time you saw Taehyung eyeing the biggest ride in the park and you knew it would be a matter of time before he asked you to get on the ride with him.
"Hey ___, do you think we could ride that?" Taehyung asked, pointing at the ride you were dreading.
"Uh, ya know Tae, I’m not too sure if I can handle that. I’ll wait for you though if you want to ride it." You said, trying to slither out of getting on.
He just insisted that you ride and eventually convinced you that “everything would be fine” Next thing you know your sitting in the seat praying for your life.
All the worst case scenarios were playing in your head, and frankly Taehyung wasn’t helping.
He just kept joking that the lap bar was a bit loose and that the bolts looked a bit more rusted then they should be.
You must have been doing a good job at hiding your worry because you were just about ready to scream for the worker to come get you out of the seat, and Taehyung just kept joking.
"Alright Taehyung that’s enough! Can’t you tell I’m scared out of my mind?" You yelled, looking over at him with tears in your eyes.
He looked at you with wide eyes and started to apologize profusely.
"Oh my gosh, I’m so sorry. I honestly didn’t know that you were afraid of roller coasters." He said, worry and remorse emanate in his eyes.
"I know, I’m sorry for yelling but please stop saying things like that." You said, with a heavy sigh.
Right as your sentence left your mouth the roller coaster was moving and you started to shake.
Taehyung moved as close as he could to you and held your hand in his.
"It’s going to be alright, nothing is going to break. I’m here with you. Nothing will go wrong." He said into your ear.
His words did help soothe your worries but not completely.
As soon as the roller coaster got to the top of the first hill you started screaming. You quickly realized that it wasn’t as scary as you though it would be. You actually started to laugh and scream at the same time.
After the ride was over you got off and hugged him tightly.
"Are you alright?" He asked, pulling back a bit so that he could look at your face.
"Yeah, I’m fine. Slightly shaken up. But overall I’m fine." You said with a smile on your face.
He started to pepper your face with kisses, making you giggle.
"I’m glad to hear that." He said.
He took your hand into his and started to walk towards the exit. The sun setting was truly beautiful to look at as you reflected on the events of Taehyung’s and your first date.
"I really enjoyed today. Thank you so much for this." You said, looking up at him.
"I enjoyed spending time with you. Again I’m sorry about earlier." He said, with a sad smile.
"It’s fine. You helped me over come my fear really." You replied.
"So maybe we can come back and ride all the other scary rides sometime." He replied with an eager tone.
"Uhm, maybe sometime, not any time soon though." You said with a laugh.
You both laughed and continued to walk to the car hand in hand.
One of the added bonuses of this past weekend’s workshop was walking around Downtown Los Angeles at night. The lights from the movie palace marquees illuminate the sidewalks in a beautiful glow. The city which has been awash with people hours before is now calmer, quieter. You get a hint of what that city might have been 50 or 60 years ago.
I’m one of those people that have to be told when someone likes me, or I just won’t know. Like I will honestly have no idea at all. And it’s the same way when someone loves me, if they don’t tell me, I will never know. I don’t get hints lol
Feiticeiro Academy of Sorcery: Located in a hidden corner of the Brazilian jungle, Feiticeiro is the primary education hub for all of South America. It has the largest campus per square meter of all 11 educational facilities, and has the distinction of being the only school to teach national variants on the magic practiced by the rest of the world.
South American witches and wizards cultivated their own, separate branch of magic, untainted by Eurasian methods until the 1400’s. The study of necromancy and its relation to divination developed deep within the Amazon, and such study is mainly limited to the school today.
Students enjoy absolute freedom within the confines of the campus, as there are no Muggles in the immediate area. Feiticeiro is the only school other than Hogwarts to participate in the Sorting System, and are world renowned for their incredible Quidditch and Dueling teams.
