Sorry for taking forever posting this chapter. Life has been hectic, but good! Here's part 12!
The days flew by in a blur of schoolwork and after-school activities. Wes was splitting his time between football and working, to save money for prom. I was swamped with the decorating committee and trying to keep up my grades and applying to college.
Soon it was time for spring formal. I had asked Wes to formal, since he had asked me to prom. It was scheduled to start at 7 p.m. so as soon as I got home, I started to get ready. I took a shower and shaved and grabbed my outfit and headed over to Mona's so I could help her get ready. As I headed over to Mona's, I sent Wes a text that I would be over at Mona's and to pick me up there.
I rang the bell and Mrs. Stevens answered the door. She greeted me warmly and told me to go up and help her panicing daughter. I smiled and headed up. I knocked on Mona's door and heard her tell me to come in. I opened the door, and I looked over at Mona, who was wearing a green strapless dress that started with a light green top layer and a forest green skirt underneath, coupled with chocolate brown heels. She was also wearing emerald studs and a chocolate diamond necklace. She wore her hair in an elegant bun to showcase her neck and jewels.
I wore khaki slacks with brown loafers and a dark green button-down with a light green tie. "Wow Andy, you're looking very handsome!" Mona said, seeing me in her mirror. "Same to you!" I replied.
Soon after I showed up, we heard the doorbell. We heard Mona's mom greey our dates. We made our way downstairs and walked intp the living room to join our dates. Wes was wearing khaki's and a yellow button-down with a green tie and light brown loafers. Tony was wearing a light green button-down with a dark green tie with brown khaki's and dark loafers.
Mona's mom made us do several pictures before we headed to the Formal. We finally headed to the school and the formal was in full swing. I walked with Wes holding each other's hand. We walked through a gold streamer curtain and I heard Wes let out a small gasp of surprise and I looked up at him and saw a smile creep across his face. Wes stopped and took my face in his hands and bent down and kissed me.
"Babe, I love what you did and I love you even more because I am in awe of how lucky I am to be here with you." Wes said with so much love. I smiled and said, "I'm the lucky one!" I grabbed his hand and led him towards the dance floor to join Mona & Tony.
Soon music change in everybody began to slow dance. Wes asked while holding out his hand towards me, "May I have this dance?" I look at him and replied, "I don't know if I should, because my boyfriend might get jealous."
Wes grabbed my hand and pulled me close to him while wrapping an arm around my waist and I laid a hand on his shoulder. "I'll show you jealous!" he replied and I smiled while staring deep in his eyes. "I love you so much, you know?" I said as I laid my head on his shoulder. I felt him kiss the top of my head and he murmured, "Yeah, I do."l
Soon after the music ended, Wes and I grabbed a couple chairs to sit and relax. Wes went to grab us drinks. Mona sank into a chair next to me and asked, "Are you having a good time?" I replied that I was. Wes and Tony walked up and handed us our refreshments and we sat and chatted with our friends and classmates.
After several hours of dancing ans hanging out with friends, it was time to go. I rode with Wes, while Mona left with Tony. We agreed to go out to eat at a burger place before heading home.
After dinner, Wes dropped me off at my house. Wes got out and opened my door and walked me to my front door. I turned to face Wes and he was looking down at me with a slight grin. "What are you smiling at?" I asked him. "Nothing, just trying to figure out how I got so lucky." Wes said while wrapping his arms around my waist. Wes bent down and kissed me. I put one hand on his chest while wrapping the other around his neck. After a few minutes, I broke the kiss and looked Wes in his eyes and said, "I love you so much, Wes." "I kinda like you too." We said with a grin. I punched him lightly in the shoulder. He kissed me one last time before he walked back to his car. I stood on the porch watching him walk to his car and hugged myself and grin. Wes drove away honking his horn three times signaling that he loved me. I waved and headed into the house. I locked up and headed upstairs, and I heard my mom ask me if I had a good time. I poked my head in and gave a warm smile in response. "Get some sleep, hon. You have school in the morning." I gave my mom a kiss and headed to my room. I hung up my suit and got dressed for bed. I felt lucky to be alive and to have found someone who I can share things with.
