"C'mon Hayles." Josh whined before swining his wii remote and sending the golf ball further on the green.
"I already said no." I aruged lightly, rolling my eyes when Josh's ball rolled right into the hole. "I hate you."
"Right now the feeling is mutual." Josh smirked, biting down on his bottom lip to hold back at laugh when my swing was terrible.
"Shut up." I mumbled, brusing back my bangs to glare at Josh. "You are not helping your case by laughing at me."
Josh stopped laughing before shaking his head and taking a long sip of the beer that rested on his coffee table. Placing the bottle down, he rubbed the sides of his face with his hands before letting out a deep sigh. I watched as he spoke quietly under his breath, no doubt in my mind that it wasn't meant for me to hear before removing his hands and smiling softly at me.
"Are you okay?" I asked slowly, concerned what I had just witnessed.
"I'm fine." Josh nodded, lining up his hips before swinging the wii remote and getting another hole in one.
"In case you didn't know this Josh, you're really easy to read." I said softly before getting ready for my own turn.
"Only to you though." Josh added, running his fingers through his hair after he took another sip of his beer.
"And why is that?" I asked, a small laugh echoing at the end of my sentence.
"I honestly don't know and sometimes it scares me at how much you know." Josh said, walking towards me and placing his hands on top of mine.
"What are you doing Josh?" I whispered, his fingers curling around my wrists as I tried to control my breathing.
"The reason why your swing is off is the way you pull back to swing." Josh explained, moving his hands with mine as they pulled back before moving my arms into a proper swing. My eyes were glued to the screen as I watched the ball soar into the air before falling directly into the hole. Moving my eyes away from the screen I turned my head to look at Josh who had a small smile on his face.
"And that's how you get a hole in one."
Sitting down at the mepty bar stool, my eyes wandered around the crowd room filled with a collection of business men and college students. I clearing my throat before turning my attention back to Dakota who was filling another glass with beer.
"Hey D!" I screamed over the crowd, taking a deep breath when she turned her head towards my voice.
"What are you doing here T?" Dakota asked, grabbing the money off the bar and shoving it in her pockets.
"I can't say hello to my friend?" I coughed nervously, feeling a small blush form on my cheeks.
"Not on a Friday night." Dakota sighed, brushing her hair away from her face.
"Miss? Another beer."
"I'm really busy Taylor." Dakota groaned before attending the customer on the other side of the bar.
"Are you busy tomorrow?" I called after Dakota as she grabbed a glass from underneath the counter.
"What?" Dakota screamed, filling the glass with whatever was on tap.
"Do you want to go out tomorrorw, like a date, without the group?" I rambled on, stuttering over a few words.
"Um yea sure." Dakota waved away before attending to another customer.
"Friday then?" I asked, shaking my head as a smile made its way onto my lips.
"Friday." Dakota laughed before escaping to the back of the bar.
"So why do you need a date so bad Josh?" Hayley sighed, resting her head on my shoulder as we sat huddled together on the couch in my living room.
"No reason." I shrugged, combing my fingers through Hayley's hair as I kept my eyes focused on the movie infront of us.
"Stop lying to me." Hayley whispered, glancing down at our interlaced fingers before smiling softly at me.
"It's just my room mate, John, was an ass." I chuckled, shaking my head as I remembered my college days.
"Then why are you going then?" Hayley laughed, reaching up to run her fingers along my jaw.
"Because I can't let him win you know?" I shrugged, kissing Hayley's finger when it hovered over my lips.
"Ahh man pride." Hayley nodded, her gap teeth showing through her smile.
"Exactly so that's why I need a date in order to attend this wedding. I want to show him that he didn't win."
"I see." Hayley nodded as she continued to drag her fingers along my jaw. I turned my attention away from the movie that was playing and glanced down at Hayley whose eyes were trained on her fingers grasing my skin. Her eyes looked distant, as if she was thinking about what she should say or do next. Her teeth were biting down on her bottom lip as she continued to trace my jaw in this trance.
"I'll go with you."
"What?" I laughed, not beliving what I just heard.
"I'll be your date to the wedding Josh." Hayley smiled, shaking her head at me with a light laugh. A smile grew on my lips before I leaned down and placed a kiss on Hayley's.
"I don't hate you anymore Hayles." I whispered softly, my lips just a hair away from hers.
"The feeling is mutual."
