"Yeah, I guess it is." she chuckled softly. A pink had dusted her cheeks. Leah had missed the days when they were younger. He had been like an older brother to her, always taking care of her, making sure she never got into any trouble with boys. In a way, she had supposed she had feelings for him. After they separated, however, she suppressed them as much as she could. She didn't want to raise her hopes when she [i knew] it wasn't possible.
She looked up at him with those same innocent, doe eyes as he spoke, wondering what he was going to say. She was curious as to why he seemed nervous, he usually wasn't. Leah decided to ignore it for now, a small sigh escaping her lips. If she was being honest, she sort of envied vampires, in a way. Now it was only because [i they] weren't at the bottom of the quote-unquote "food chain", but she still had some fascination left for the species.
As he spoke and took her hand in his, she smiled softly, looking down before looking back up at him. "I do mean it. I know you're only doing it to protect me, Jayden. Like you've always done." she whispered to him, their faces now just inches apart. She had no idea what she was feeling right now, but something in her stomach was doing cartwheels. She couldn't help but stare into his eyes, then down at his lips, and back up at him slowly as a small smile formed on her features, time seeming to freeze as the two of them connected.
Her suppressed feelings..suddenly didn't seem so suppressed. She felt her heart skip a beat, she didn't know why. His hands were warm in hers, seeming to fit perfectly. She wasn't aware, but their bodies seemed to slowly drift closer and closer to each other, the atmosphere suddenly seeming a bit heavier.
