Good morning everyone! Did everyone have a good week? I am so glad that today is Friday because I am totally ready for the weekend.
Today we start a new series here on the blog. This one was different for me, it isn’t something that I would normally write. But it was fun to see what I could come up with as I was trying something different. I don’t want to give away too many details because I want you to see what the story is all about! This story is an Adventure and I hope you enjoy!
Zac sat in the library, his head in his hands. He had been sitting there all day trying to get a project done but it felt like he had been there for years. His laptop sat on the desk surrounded by fast food bags and Starbucks cups. Friends had come and gone while he sat there.
“Hey hot stuff.”
Zac turned to see his girlfriend Talia standing behind him. He smiled before giving her a kiss. “Hey baby. How are you?”
She sat down in the chair next to his. “Not bad. I was wondering if you were going to come stay at my dorm tonight. Or if you were going to be here for all hours.”
Zac stretched and looked at the time. “Geez! It’s almost midnight! I didn’t realize I was here for so long.” He rubbed his face. “Uh…no. I think I’m gonna stay at my place. Sorry. I really need to sleep and work on this tomorrow. This project is taking way too long to finish.”
Talia wrapped her arms around Zac and rested her head on his shoulder. She sighed. “Too bad. We could’ve had some fun.”
“I know babe. But this project is worth half of my grade for this class and I really need to get a head start on it.”
She kissed his cheek. “I know. You’re always so studious. I love that about you.” She stood up and picked up some of Zac’s trash to throw away on her way out of the library. “We need to get a hotel room when this semester is over. It would be much more fun.”
Zac started packing up his things. “Yeah maybe. Maybe after finals. But for now I will walk you to your dorm room before heading to mine.”
They quickly packed up and started toward the door. They walked hand and hand through the darkness toward the dorms. The school wasn’t that big so the dorms weren’t too far away from the library. The air had a chill in it from the early October night. Not many students were still awake at this hour so campus was very quiet, eerily quiet. The few light posts that led the way to the dorms were bright, giving the sidewalk small little spotlights showing them the way.
Once they arrived at the dorms, Zac walked Talia to her room. They kissed outside the door before going their separate ways. Zac walked in silence to his dorm, a room he shared with 3 other boys. He had his own separate room which was nice, but it was nice to see his friends also.
He walked in the door to find one other guy awake. Damian was sitting at the table eating a bowl of cereal. Damian waved. “Hey bro. You up late studying again?”
Zac nodded. “Yeah. I’m going to bed. G’night.”
“Hey before you go to bed, this letter was under the door. It’s addressed to you but I have no idea what it is.” Damian handed Zac an envelope with a nicely written ‘Zac’ on the front.
Zac frowned. “Huh…I wonder if Talia left this for me. But I just saw her and she didn’t say anything.” He walked toward his room. “Thanks man. Have a good night.”
He threw his backpack on the bed and sat next to it. He carefully opened the letter and read it.
To my love
You are the light that shines in the morning. You are the brightest part of my day. You mean more to me than you will ever know. I love you more than I love anything else. I love you.
Zac snickered. He pulled out his phone and text Talia. Thanks for the cheesy love letter!
He didn’t have to wait long when his phone buzzed. I didn’t send you anything…what are you talking about?
Zac froze. If Talia didn’t leave the love letter, then who is it from?
Melanie sat in her dorm room and sighed. Zac was perfect. He was the perfect guy. No one could say anything different. She was going to marry him one day. Maybe not soon, but someday.
She had a small photo album of photos of Zac. The time he came out of the library wearing her favorite red shirt. The time he was paying attention in class and she was waiting outside for him. The time he was with some of his friends in his sexy lab coat. The time he was sitting on a bench talking on the phone to his mom, letting him know how awesome school was.
She had a cup that he drank from, a pair of sunglasses he had left behind, and a small cut of hair she collected from his head. It was all so special and he always left things for her to find.
Was she in love? Definitely. After all, they were meant to be together. She left him a letter under his door showing her affection for him. He would surely leave one for her too.
Melanie laid on her bed, staring up at the ceiling. She had been lying there for a while but the thought of Zac was keeping her awake. Maybe if she wrote Zac another letter and left it for him, maybe that would help her sleep.
“Yeah…that should work.”
She rolled on her side and turned on her lamp. She slowly rolled off the bed and walked over to her desk. As she sat in the chair, Melanie pulled out some of her favorite stationary and her favorite pen to write.
Maybe she would be able to relax after expressing her love to him.
You are the best thing that has ever happened to me. I will do anything for you. Anything to make you happy. You deserve to be happier than ever. You deserve to be the happiest person ever. No one will ever make you as happy as I can.
I want to kiss you. I want to hold your hand. I want to walk next to you as we take a long walk through the town. I want to eat and drink with you. I want to feel your warmth as we embrace. You are my everything and I want you to know that.
I love you more than I love myself. I will never let anything stand between you and me. We are destined to be together forever.
