A Quiet Date
A Quiet Date
Ellie couldn’t believe that she was on her first date with her two-year boyfriend, Joseph. For the first time since she’d met him, things were quiet and nothing went wrong. She could feel it in her bones that today would stay that way. Of course, for all she knew, it could be another series of roller-coaster rides from tomorrow, lasting several weeks as usual. But right now, she wanted to savour this peaceful moment. And the fact that Joseph looked so incredibly handsome in his Mystical Adventurers guild’s dark blue robe.
Just then, the waiter arrived with their orders. Being five o’clock in the evening, they had resorted to a couple of veg sandwiches, one for each. Joseph began to devour into his; when he saw that she was gazing at him with a fascinated look in her eyes, he rose his eyebrows in question.
“Nothing,” she shook her head and dug into her sandwich as well. “Umm, this is so good!” she exclaimed as she chewed, her cheeks growing red in excitement.
He grinned. “Told you I know the best cafés in town.” He winked at her.
“You sure did!” She took another large bite of her sandwich. “So! How does it feel to be one of the Mystical Adventurers?” She stuck out a fist at him pretending to be holding a microphone.
Joseph laughed. “It feels great!” he replied. “And I feel a lot like I’ve finally achieved something!” He paused and smiled warmly at her. “Ellie, thank you so much for pushing me into this.”
The young girl shrugged, as if nonchalant. “Somebody had to!”
“Then, I’m glad it’s you.” He paused. “So. You up for everybody to know our secret now?”
