Finally here’s the second chapter. This started out as a short piece, but mutated into a full flown story.
Chapter Two: Not So Secret Romance.
Theodore left the room, and Simon assumed he was off to make breakfast as he usually did. The room became silent again as he lay on his bed with his paws at the back of his head. All he could think about was Jeanette and the way she kissed him. Never in his life had he felt this way, and it scared him a little but in a good way.
Meanwhile Jeanette is in her room sitting on her bed. She reached under her pillow and pulled out a book. It was a deep purple satin cover with blue and violet with satin cloth flowers embroidered on it. It had a lock on the side, and she opened it with the little key that she fished out of her jewelry box. It was the diary that Dave had bought for her for Christmas. In fact he had bought all the girls their own diaries, which the boys more than once threatened to read.
She opened the book and started to write.
Something wonderful has happened. Last night was the best night of my life. Since we all returned home Simon had been avoided me, and I wondered why. I thought maybe I did something. I don’t know why but last night I couldn’t sleep. I just stayed up staring at the ceiling thinking about him. Well, I just couldn’t take it anymore and got out of bed. I wanted to knock on his door and talk to him about it, but I just lost my nerve. Instead I went outside to the porch and just sat out there and looked at the stars.
I’ve been doing a lot of that lately since we came home, but it seems no matter what I do I just can’t get him out of my head. Then last night it happened. As I was sitting out there trying not to think about Simon there he was. He looked so handsome in the moonlight carrying that little saucer with tea and snacks. He even made my tea just the way I like, but that wasn’t the best part.
We actually kissed right under the stars. It was so magical, and then we danced. It was so heavenly being in his arms, and but then I kind of fell asleep. I was a little embarrassed at first, but he was just so sweet. I really do think I’m falling in love with him.
