A Moment to Cherish
I sat down on the cool grass, glad to be getting some peace for a change. My agenda was packed with things like taking care of my house, swimming meets, and all kinds of high school chaos.
I stared out into a beautiful landscape. A thin screen of gray fluff covered the mountains and made them seem to stretch on for endless miles. The small waves in the vast lake traveled along the surface crashing into places where land began and then setting off in a new direction.
I turned, when I heard the noise of crunching grass, just in time to see Nathan sit down next to me and smile.
"It's amazing isn't it?" I asked him as I looked out into the glistening water.
"Yeah, it definitely is..." He murmured smiling.
I turned to look into his ocean blue eyes my lips curved up into a delighted grin. I turned my eyes back to the mountain range sighing.
"You know, Nathan. What you've done for me in these past months has really changed me. You have no idea how much all of this has meant to me. You've reunited me with my biological family that I haven't seen in fourteen years. You saved my life about three times. And you treat me like I am the only thing that matters in your life." I said shaking my head in thankful disbelief.
It was a moment before he said anything.
"Well you are the only thing that matters to me." He told me softly locking our stare. His blue eyes were mesmerizing and his blond hair blew in the soft breeze.
Our conversation was interrupted by an earsplitting crack of thunder and I looked up from my perch on the grassy hill. Dark clouds filled the sky and swallowed the sun whole. Rain began to pick up all along the lake. I watched it spread then stood next to Nathan who was already standing up.
"We’d better go, Sam, this storm looks like it's gonna be bad." He commented slipping into his jacket over my shoulders.
We ran to his car and we got inside. As soon as Nathan shut his door rain poured over the windows harder than ever.
"Perfect timing!" Nathan exclaimed and I laughed.
He started the car and I looked out of the window trying to make out the once perfectly clear, breath-taking landscape but it faded away through the thick sheets of downpour.
So much for a break... I thought to myself as Nathan pulled out of the parking space and we headed back to resume our busy lives.
