“ See I told you it’s the Brady Charm” Rex said jokingly to Mimi.
Breaking us apart from our clutches.
Mimi kissed Rex. \
“ I think they’re trying to beat our record for the most kisses in one day.” Mimi teased.
“I think that they might be trying to beat us to the alter.” Rex said. Looking Rex he and Shawn shared a lot of similarities. The same olive skin the same perfect features. Rex’s was a little more lighter. His skin was not nearly as dark as Shawn’s and his hair was a just a shade or two lighter and his eyes were more green than brown but, they shared a resemblance. They could have easily passed as brothers.
That’s impossible, Belle’s moving to New York. She’s going to be our children’s doctor so; I can’t have her getting married just yet. Or, you’ll never get the house full of kids you want Mimi winked at me.
I suddenly felt like I was neglecting my studies that I should be at the library learning all that I could before school starts in the fall and instead I’m acting like.. Mimi.. a girl in love.
“ So, what did you pack us? I’m starving,” Shawn said.
“Some sandwiches and some fruit. I didn’t realize that we were going to come here.”
“ Are you hungry?” Shawn asked sincerely smiling at me showing me his pearly whites.
“ Yeah, a little” I nodded.
I smiled back at him. In fact I don’t remember ever smiling so much. My lips were numb my jaw hurt from smiling my stomach was full of butterflies my throat was in knots and my heart skipped constantly. I was undoubtedly in love.
“Good then lets go in and leave them to alone. “ Shawn said taking my hand in his
We walked up to the back porch and sat down at the wicker table and chairs. I sat across from him.
“What would you like?” I asked. Searching through the brown wicker basket.
“Give me the apple” I handed him the red delicious apple I was holding.
I sat across from him eating a strawberry. Shawn just stared at me. My self-conscience told me to stop eating. He held the apple in his hand and looked down at it for a second
“ You know what this apple reminds me of,” He said staring at the apple then put his brown eyes on mine.
“No” I said dumbfounded.
“It reminds me of you. You want to know why?” He asked waiting for my response.
“Yes, I’m curious how an apple can remind you of me”. I lifted my eyebrow. Keeping his gaze.
“Well there’s a lot to an apple. On the outside, they’re obviously beautiful. They’re smooth, curvy, mysterious, …he paused and Tempting.”
He kept his gaze on mine and took a bite of the apple a moment later opened his mouth once more.
“ On the inside they’re delectably sweet. It’s no wonder they call it the forbidden fruit.
Because if I had a choice right here and now you would be mine.” He said making sure that I understood what he was saying.
“ You’re the forbidden fruit sure I know that there’s a variety of fruit out there but, none of them are as appealing or as pure And I know that if I take you, I will ruin it all and that scares me. It drives me crazy because I want you so badly. You’re tempting me
, Teasing me with your beauty, with your mysteriousness and your innocence.
I wasn’t sure exactly how to reply to that. I wasn’t sure what he was saying I knew the words but, wasn’t sure what he was meaning. Or maybe I didn’t want to understand him.
I wanted to believe that he loved me because he loved me not just because he couldn’t have me.
