Chapter 2 – One Month In
It's been a month since I went out with Artemis and this month has been amazing. We hangout almost every day at the cave. We haven't had a mission all month, but I don't care, gives me a chance to finally get to know Artemis. I got to learn what her favorite color is, what nationality she is. Things that I wouldn't have cared to know months ago, but I know want to know everything about her. I think about her so much, it makes it hard for me to complete my homework, which I'm struggling with now.
"Wallace West, what are you looking at? Your homework isn't going to finish itself." Says my mom. Staring at me as she prepares dinner, as I stare blankly at my dining room wall.
"Sorry mom, just thinking about something." I say as I smile and look back at my homework.
"Hmm, must be something nice if your smiling like that." She says with a grin. Uhg I knew that grin, I knew she would eventually figure out what I was thinking about, even if I don't tell her who I'm thinking about. "Well, want to tell me what's on your mind?"
I then tell her everything. Who Artemis was, how I kissed her on New Year's, our date. How I think how amazing she is and how I'm always thinking about her.
"Aww, my sons first girlfriend." She says, hopefully my only I think to myself. "When am I going to meet this girl?" I then start to panic, was a right to time to introduce Artemis to my family, or am I supposed to wait longer. I hate not knowing how a relationship worked.
"Umm, I'll get back to you on that." I tell her. She just shakes her head and I continue on with my chemistry homework, hoping she doesn't ask any questions.
Ahh a month with Wally. I can't believe we made it this long. If someone told me a few months ago I would be dating Baywatch I would have laughed straight at their face. Now I think we can last much longer than a month. We've been spending so much time together, getting to know each other, I haven't time to sit and have tea with my own mother. Finally today on this quiet Sunday we can both have our own downtime together, over some Jasmine tea.
"So, Artemis how has this boy you have been hanging around with. I hope he is treating you nice." Says my mom, I was not expecting her to say that. I have mentioned Wally here and there but have yet to mention how we are dating.
"Good" I tell her. "Really good actually, I don't think I've ever been so happy with a guy before. It's nice." I tell her how he kissed me on New Year's, how our first date was and how we've been getting to know each other a lot over the past month.
"Aww Artemis, I'm so happy for you. I'm glad you found someone who makes you smile. It's nice seeing you smile like that." Hearing her say that makes me happier then I already am. I'm glad too, I never thought I would be happy dating Wally.
"So when am I going to meet him?" she asks me. A very good question that I don't know the answer to. Without even meaning to say I blur out "How about tomorrow?" Uhg why did I say that.
Coming out of school it made me realize Artemis was out of school, which meant it was the perfect time to text her. I know she hates it when I text her when she's in class, so I try to wait till I leave school.
'Hey beautiful' I say in my text.
'Hey Wally ;)' she says a moment later. 'Do you mind meeting me at the cave, I have something to ask you?'
'Sure, I'll be there soon' I text back. I wonder what she has to ask me. Oh gosh did I do something wrong? I knew I haven't taken her out all since our first date, but she wouldn't want to talk about that with me, right?
One hour later
Coming to the cave I feel a little nervous. Asking Wally to meet my mother is a huge step, but I think we are ready for it. Waiting for the fastest teen in the world was a very long wait. I figure meeting in the kitchen would make his arrival come faster, but I was wrong. But being the awesome girlfriend I am, I'll make him a snack. Thankfully nobody else was here, so we can talk in private.
"Hey beautiful" I hear Wally say, I guess I was so lost in thought I didn't hear him come in.
"Hey" I say with a smile and a kiss on his lips. Not seeing him for one day has made me really miss him.
"So, what is it you wanted to talk to me about? Cause if it's about us not going on a date for a while, I'm sorry I'll make to up to you, I promise." He says almost begging. I just role my eyes and explain to him that it's about something else. And tell him I don't care about not going on dates, as long as I'm hanging out with him, I'm happy. Making him seem less nervous than he already looks.
"I asked you to come here cause I wanted to know if you wanted to come over my house for dinner? I was telling my mother about you yesterday and she wants to meet you."
"How funny" he says, "I was telling my mother about you yesterday and she wants to meet you too." I guess both our mothers want to meet each other, I guess asking him would be easier than I thought.
"So is that a yes or no." I say, I was growing little impatient.
"Of course beautiful, I would love to meet your mother" he says with a smile. I smile back, glad asking him this was easy, I just hope him meeting my mother would go just as smoothly tonight.
