Rosa had started working out at the gym, her new boyfriend had recommended that she work out so she could get promoted. And she was also seeing him tonight and wanted to look a least a little bit in shape.
Rosa hadn’t had to choose, the boy had asked her by himself and she was overflowing with joy. She had always been the one making the first step.
She had barely seen the time pass by when she realized it was time for her date. She was excited, it was their first date since he’d asked if he could be her boyfriend.
After grabbing a plate she looked around trying to locate him.
Then finally she found him and sat down.
She stilll remebered how Ethan had asked her out in Central park. She relished the memory.
They talked for awhile then things began to be awkward. Or more Ethan did. “Look…I know this is like our first date and all…but…its just I kinda need a place to…I mean could I like move in with you?”
“Um…yeah, this is a bit straightforward…look how about-” Rosa started when suddenly Ethan tensed up and she heard a familiar voice behind her.
Pushing the feeling aside, she ran up and gave Alfie a hug. She could feel the tension between the two. She didn’t what had happened between them, and didn’t feel any need to either. She was actually very happy that Alfie had appeared, things had been getting way too awkward with her boyfriend.
“I gotta go, we’ll talk again later,” Ethan said. Rosa wasn’t curious about their past, but she did find the fact that the two couldn’t be in the same place together interesting.
“Thanks, it kinda started to get really awkward after he asked if we could move in together.” Rosa said.
“Really? How surprising!” Alfie said rather sarcastically.
“What does that mean?”
“I’m just not surprised by his behavior.” He replied.
” ‘kay, well I have to go see ya,” Rosa said giving hima hug.
With a little money flowing in, Rosa bought herself a new bed.
her old bed…
Her new bed…it wasn’t the best bed, but at least it wasn’t all springy. She maybe should’ve saved up for a stove, but right now comfort came first.
One early morning while Rosa was jogging (still trying to get in shape) She saw something unexpected.
Ethan sleeping on a park bench!
* cough, cough* Ethan woke up, he looked weary and tired.
“yeah…uh…why are you sleeping on a park bench?”
“I though I’d ttold you, my parents kicked me out.” Of course the first though that went through Rosa’s head was you still live with your parents? But then that thought was replaced by guilt.
“OH! I’m sorry, I hadn’t realised! Of course you can come live with me!” Rosa suddenly blurted.
“What you’d do that?” he asked with a puppy look.
“Of course, I couldn’t leave you to sleep outside!” Rosa replied.
With Ethan moving in renovations were made. Ethan actually made them and called it a “surprise” for Rosa. Rosa couldn’t help but notice A bed, not two beds. They’d only been going out for two weeks, she wasn’t aware they were that far in the relationship. But then again she had told him he could move in and he’d just been kicked out of his house (because his parents had discovered he was a criminal he said), she had to go easy. But she still got the feeling she was making a mistake.
This is all going just a bit too fast for Rosa…:D
