Anythingzombie's Week 7 Entry: Date Night


Anythingzombie's Choice: Both

Date Night

Riley’s foot tapped against the hard floor of his basement. He chewed on his nails as his eyes persistently flickered to the clock on the wall beside him. He knew that time wouldn’t go any faster if he did this, but he couldn’t help it, he was anxious. He’d asked Bella Swan to come over. His best friend Max asked him if it were a date, and Riley replied with a wondrous gaze. Was it a date?

A sound of a door opening caught his attention. He whipped his head to his right, his eyes dancing up the steps until he caught sight of Bella walking down them.

“Thanks, Mrs. Biers!” Bella called out behind her.

Riley pushed himself off the couch and onto his feet. He brushed his moist palms against his pants and he swallowed. Bella reached the final step and looked up at Riley.

“Hi,” she greeted with a smile.

“H-Hey,” he stuttered, a small blush reaching his face. Bella blushed in return, only because she knew she was the cause for his nerves.

“I told my dad I’d be home by nine,” she said, determined to change the subject.

Riley’s eyebrows scrunched up. “But it’s only three.”

The brunette smiled. “Then you better have some fun activities planned.”

He smiled in return, offering her a seat on his beat up, old couch. She sat down while he walked toward the entertainment system, fishing out a favorite movie of his. He carried it to Bella, sitting beside her.

“What’s that?” she asked. He handed her the DVD.

“Badass Cops, my favorite movie of all time. Have you seen it?”

“I haven’t, though my dad does own it, go figure.” She laughed as did he.

“I figured cops would hate it, since it’s basically one big farce. But it shows your dad is open minded and doesn’t take offense easily, so that’s good to know,” Riley replied.

Bella smirked but said nothing.

“Reno 911 and Superbad meet in this raunchy, witty and bizarre take on two cops in Los Angeles. Lautner and Pattinson prove their ability to go from drama and angst to action and comedy,” she read out loud.

“It’s the greatest thing in the world,” Riley said.

Bella put the movie on his lap. “Put it on.”

Riley got up and set up the movie, all the while Bella was trying to get comfortable on the old couch. The springs squeaked with each movement she made and she couldn’t help but to blush. Riley looked over his shoulder at her and smirked.

“I’m going to go get some popcorn and soda,” he said. She nodded her head and watched him disappear. Bella sat there in the dark, the only light coming from the TV which showed old trailers for movies she’s already seen. She sighed and decided to get more comfortable. She slipped off her shoes and took off the jacket her mother had bought her. As she was scooting herself up on the couch, Riley came downstairs.

He apologized for taking so long, and Bella dismissed it.

“Popcorn takes awhile,” she summed up.

He nodded his head and sat beside her. Bella immediately went for the popcorn, not being able to resist its buttery smell. Riley smiled as she shoved a handful into her mouth. She caught his eye and blushed, but to make her feel better he stuck a bigger handful into his mouth, nearly choking.

As the two stared at the hilarious cops on screen, things seemed to get anything but funny in reality. Bella and Riley had moved closer to each other. Their shoulders touched and Riley was having an inner-battle with himself. Was he supposed to wrap an arm around her or hold her hand? He wished Bella would take the lead, that is if she wanted him to cuddle with her at all. But as if she read his mind, Bella pressed herself closer to him, making it so he had no choice but to wrap his arm around her.

She sighed in content, then laughed at the movie. Riley smiled of happiness.
When the credits appeared, both grew sad at the fact that they’d have to separate. But a thought crossed Riley’s mind.

“Ya know,” he stared, “I’ve got Badass Cops 2 and 3 upstairs.”

Bella looked up at him with her large, brown eyes. “What are you waiting for?”

Riley had planned on pushing her away so he could run upstairs, but instead he did something else.

“I’m waiting for you to kiss me.”

Bella smiled widely and sat up, pressing her lips eagerly against his.
