Miles grinned at her laughing, he pretended to scratch at his head then shake it off on her. "I still don't like them..." he murmured as he stared straight at one, who flicked his tongue out at him and Miles flipped him off, laughing hard when the lizard did it again.
Ellie just giggled, shaking her head. "Okay, maybe that one's not so bright, but they can be smart!"
Miles laughed with her, sticking his tongue out at the lizard. He turned towards her, "I can assure you, they are all like this..." he chuckled.
Ellie rolled her eyes. "Whatever you say kitty boy." She teased, poking his arm. "Wanna go see the pandas?"
Miles snorted, "would I? Heck yeah! I would go see anything to get outta here!" he dragged her out and started for the pandas. "ugh, I think I lost some brain s from stating in that lizard exhibit too long..." he put a hand to his forehead dramatically.
** brain cells!
Ellie laughed, rolling her eyes again. "Such a drama queen, are we?" She realized she was still holding his hand. So maybe she still had a chance of him asking her out...
Miles sighed deeply, "queen?!" he shook his head, "oh heck no!" he mustered a glare at her but just ended up laughing.
Ellie smiled at him. "You're really cute, you know that?" She hoped he'd get the hint. Her eyes were practically screaming for him to ask her out.
Miles felt his heart go wild, "uh, thank you?" he smiled at get sheepishly. He wanted to ask get out so badly it hurt.... His father... He gazed back at her... He didn't have to know. "would you like too... Um..." he scratched behind his head. "go out... To the movies?" he asked her, then he could go into the city finally. "or coffe or whatever?" hoping she would say yes.
Ellie smiled brightly and kissed his cheek. "I'd love to!" She said, her whole face lighting up. "A movie sounds great."
Miles stood there stunned, he tried not to rock back on his feet. "o-ok..." his eyes finally focused and he gazed at her. "I don't know what movie we should see though..." he gave her an apologetic smile.
Ellie giggled. "That's alright. I'll pick something out. Maybe we can have dinner afterward? Or we could just skip the movie. Whatever you want."
Miles gazed at her, "sure, whatever you want, I don't care..." he grinned at her. "I can't wait, so tomorrow?" he was getting excited. "after my shift that is..."
"Yeah, just tell me what time." Ellie was excited. She was really looking forward to this date. She really liked this guy.
Miles thought, "is five ok?" he asked her with a smile. He was really excited, he had to hold himself down.
Ellie nodded. "That's perfect. I'm off work all day tomorrow, so no worries. I can give you my phone number just in case. Sound good?"
Miles heart sped up, "ok...." he smiled, pulling out his phone from his back pocket. "ok, what I'd it?" he asked her with a smile.
Ellie gave him her number, all seven digits, with a soft smile. "If I don't answer, just leave a message."
"ok..." Miles managed a nervous smile. Was this seriously happening? Did she seriously day yes?! She did! His smile widened, "great!" he grinned at her.
