(Next part of the story. Scarlett's view)
It was saturday evening, and I was waiting outside the cinema for Crystal. We were going to meet up to watch a film- and knowing Crystal, it would either be a chick flick or a comedy.
I checked my phone for the time when I saw her turn the corner, with Zakk. My eyes narrowed as they walked up to me.
"Hey!" Crystal hugged me. "Wonder what we're gonna see?" She looked at the various film posters plastered around the building. I was still stood glaring at Zakk, his eyes averting mine, as Crystal shrieked out.
"Omigod! There's a new comedy out...!" She began rambling on about the actors for a while, when Zakk finally interrupted her.
"Why don't we head inside and get the tickets?" He asked her calmly. She grinned ad nodded her head vigorously, her long brown hair bobbing around her shoulders.
We bought our tickets for the film and headed inside the theatre. There were only four seats left for that showing, one at the very front and three at the ends of the back two rows- one in the farthest row and two in front of them. I told them I'd take the single in the back, but Crystal wanted to sit with me. So I ended up sitting directly in front of Zakk, thankfully the aisle seat.
The movie was quite boring, even though Crystal didn't stop laughing through the whole thing. I never really focused on it, just the fact that Zakk was right behind me.
A little while through the film, he leaned in, asking for something from Crystal. I didn't hear what. As he did, he was talking to Crystal, but I could feel his warm breath on my neck, a slow, steady rhythm. I took in his scent; a musky, spicy aroma that hung around him. It filled my lungs and made me feel dizzy. I needed to get some fresh air, get away from Zakk. I mumbled something to Crystal about needing to go to the bathroom, and slid out of my seat.
I walked to the door of the cinema, breathing in the fresh, cool, breeze. I felt tired and light-headed. I was still stood there about ten minutes after, when I felt Zakk's presence behind me. His hand came down to my shoulder.
"You OK?" He murmered into my ear. My heart stated beating fast. I stepped forward, letting his hand fall from my shoulder, and massaged my temples.
"Yeah," I replied. "I've just got a headache." I turned towards him. As I tried walking, I realised my knees were shaking. Zakk held my shoulders, steadying me. I placed my hands over his and pushed them off my shoulders, so he slid them down my arms, sending a chill through me as he did, and wrapped them around my waist. I didn't bother trying get him off me. We both know he was a lot stronger than me, and I felt ready to collapse at any moment. At least, I hoped that was why I didn't pull away.
I looked up at him, and his eyes held a glint of happiness, making the usual dark green eyes shimmer and sparkle. I smiled sincerely at him, and wrapped my arms around him, hugging him tight. He sighed heavily and muttered something in my ear.
"Sorry?" I pulled away, not understanding what he'd said.
He whispered louder now. His breath on my neck made me shiver. "I love you." He had a joyful undertone in his voice. I smiled and leaned my head against his shoulder, feeling something I had never experienced before. He leaned his head down and softly kissed my cheek. I looked up at him, completely filled with wonder, joy and that other, new feeling. I just couldn't find the words to reply to what he had said, so instead, I crushed my lips to his, forgetting about Crystal, the movie, and everyone else around us. He was the only person I could see.
