Chapter Eleven

It was the day that Ray and I were going to go on our date. I had asked him all week were it was he was going to take me, but all he told me was that it was a secret. I had told Stella, Jeanne and Mo about my date with Ray and Mo said that we would need to do some shopping before my date. So now here I am sitting in my living room waiting for Jeanne to pull up with Mo and Stella.

"Livs, what are you doing in the living room?" Mom asked standing at the doorway.

"Waiting for Jeanne to pull up in the driveway. I had told her, Stella and Mo about my date with Ray and Mo said that we needed to do some shopping. So now here I am waiting." I explained. "And honestly I don't know what I got myself into when telling Mo about it. Knowing how she is with fashion I may not make it back for my date."

Mom chuckled. "Honey, it'd be a miracle if you make it out of the mall unscathed."

I laughed and with that we heard a honk. I bid mom goodbye and walked out. When I entered the car Mo was already blabbing about how much we have to do. I stopped her mid-rant and told her that we only have a few hours since Ray told me he was going to pick me up around five-thirty for our date. She stated at me like I grew another head. She took a deep breath, grabbed my hand and led me to the first store. Ten stores later we finally found an outfit that would work. After much convincing from Mo, Ray told only her where he was taking me. I was still clueless. Mo found a romantic embroidery dress. Soon she found some shoes to go with it. The shoes were Vince Camuto 'Hariza' boots that complemented the dress. With that she added accessories. They were a second nature bracelet, a blue nile floral heart shaped pendant and a H&M hair clip that doubles as a brooch.

When I finished trying on the dress with shoes Mo squealed. She loved how it looked on me. Once I changed out of them and into my clothes we went up to the register. I was going to pay for it when Mo pushed me aside and paid for it instead. I looked at her and she told me that Ray told her to pay for whatever we got for our date and that he was going to pay her back. I rolled my eyes and muttered that I was going to have a word with Ray. Once we left the store we headed straight for the parking lot. We arrived to my house around three-thirty. Mo told me that I should go and take a long shower. I rolled my eyes and did just that. Half hour later I came out and was surprised to see Mo, Jeanne and Stella in my room. Mo grabbed my wrists and led me to my bed. She sat me down and brought out her make up kit.

"Oh no." I said. "You're not going to put make up on me."

"Livs," Mo said, "it's not going to be a lot. Only a little blush, some mascara and lip gloss. The kind that even if you drink something it won't come off."

I sighed and let her do what she wants. Web she finished I grabbed the dress and shoes and went to the bathroom. When I finished putting it on I walked out of the bathroom. I looked at my alarm clock and saw that it was four-thirty. I had only an hour left before my date.

"You look amazing!" Jeanne squealed.

"Thanks." I said. "I have only an hour left to do my hair. Should be enough time."

"Let me do your hair." Jeanne said.

"What are you planning on doing?" I asked.

"Curls." She said. "Your hair is already curly, I'm just gonna curl it a little more. Shouldn't take long."

I nodded my head and showed her where she could find a curling iron. She plugged it on and waited for it to heat up. Few minutes later she began curling my hair. Fifty five minutes later she finished and soon enough we heard the doorbell ring. I took a deep breath and heard Scott talking to Ray. Jeanne, Mo and Stella told me that they'll go downstairs. I nodded my head and soon I heard Mo telling Ray that he's going to be surprised to see what I was wearing. That was my cue to walk out of my room and down the stairs.

When I arrived to the last step I looked up. What I saw made my knees buckle. Ray was standing there wearing a cheap Monday tight original unwashed pants with a retrofit ticking mens shirt and a Seville leather jacket. With that he wore charcoal all star converses. After I finished giving him the once over I looked at his expression. His eyes were slightly wide and his mouth gapping. I smiled and heard someone clear their throat. I turned around and saw dad standing in the living room doorway.


"Ray one rule," he said. Ray gulped, "make sure she gets home bye eleven. No later."

With that he smiled and Ray nodded his head. He gave me his arm and I put my arm through his like when a father walks his daughter down the aisle. Once I was in the passenger side of the car he went to the drivers side. Once he buckled in he drove off.

"Ray were are you taking me?" I asked.

"One: I want you to meet my family before going to our date. Two: after you meet them I'll have to blind fold you. It's a surprise the place of our date." He said.

"Are you sure it's wise for me to meet your family?" I asked. "What if they don't like me?"

"Livs," he said, left hand on the wheel and his right hand gripping mine, "they'll love you. I've told them so much about you that to them you're practically family."

"Okay." I said. "So what do I need to know about them?"

"Well first are my parents. They own a club. They open at like nineish or ten and close at a really late time. That's where I'm taking you right now. They're getting things ready." He said. "I have an older brother and a younger sister, but we'll start off with my dad. His name is Jake Beech. He's forty eight years old. He loves us-his children. He gets jealous when mom is hit on by another man. Even though they've been married for 25 yrs. He is also very overprotective of my little sister. Now my mom," he said, "is forty seven years old. Her name is Jackie Beech. She loves us a lot. She adores my little sister. She has a big heart and is very gentle. She worried over you after she heard about what happened to you with your dad. She gets jealous when another woman hits on dad too. And as you can tell, she's a year younger than dad."

"So those are you parents." I stated. "And why'd you tell them about what happened to me?"

"Because they were wondering why I was a wreck. They knew I was dating you, so I had to say. My mom and dad think of you as their daughter with everything I've told them about you."

I sighed. "Okay moving on to your siblings."

"Alright," he said. "Then there's my big brother. His name is Ethan. He's twenty one years old. He's four years older than me. Loves to bug me, but if you ever mess with me than you mess with him. He's also very overprotective of our little sister. And finally there is Isabelle. She likes to be called Belle and is four years old. With everything I told her about you she absolutely adores you."

"But she hasn't even met me." I stated interrupting him.

"True, but she just does." He said. "Anyways, she loves mom and dad. Annoys Ethan and I. She gets into our business. She adores you and will probably be attached to you. To mom and dad she is innocent and can't do no wrong. Though she does get into trouble sometimes."

"Your family sounds like a lot of fun." I said. "I can't wait to meet them."

He smiled and held my hand. I asked him if I could turn on the radio and he nodded his head. Soon enough the song 'Girls Just Wanna Have Fun' came on. And I subconsciously began singing along.

As soon as I realized what I was doing I stopped. "Sorry." I said.

"Don't be." Ray said taking my hand to his lips. "It's cute."

That comment made me blush. Why are you too good to be true? And yet you're dating me. I thought to myself. Soon enough we arrived to the club. I saw that it said Desert Paradise. Catchy name. I thought. Ray stepped out of the car, closed the door and came to my side. He opened the door and I stepped out. We walked together to the club, arms linked. As soon as we stepped through the door I was amazed by what I saw. There was a small bar off to the corner. A stage up front with a mixing desk for the DJ and there was a huge dance floor. The lights were dimmed and many other colorful lights were being turned on and changed. I saw a staircase that went upwards. I continued looking around until I heard a child's voice.


I looked away from my gaping at the place and saw a girl with blonde and light brown hair. Her curls bouncing as she ran towards us. Her eyes were the same blue that Ray has. I figured it was his sister.

"Belle." Ray said picking her up and hugging her. Yep it's his sister. "Where are mom, dad an Ethan?"

"Ethan is up on the woof cweaning the pool. Mommy and daddy are in the back stocking." She said; and then she noticed me. "Hi. I'm Isabelle Beech, but I prefer being called Belle."

"Hi Belle," I said. God! She was adorable, "I'm Olivia Mari White."

"She's my girlfriend." Ray said to his sister; as he said girlfriend I felt my heart flutter.

"I've wanted to meet you fow a while now. Ray's said so much about you. I'm his little sister." She said as Ray put her down. She came up to me and grabbed a hold of my hand.

I smiled at her. "So I've heard from him. I'm glad to meet you too."

"Well come on! I want her to meet mommy and daddy. They'll wove you." She said looking up at me as she pulled me to walk. "They've wanted to meet you for a while now too, but Ray never got around to introducing you."

"See. Told you she adores you." Ray whispered in my ear as his sister continued talking. He walked on my other side, his arm around my waist.

"Well this is your sister. We still have your parents and older brother." I stated.

"And like my sister, they'll love you too." He said kissing the side of my temple.

"I hope so." I said.

Soon enough we reached a black door. Belle opened it with her right hand and led me inside. We walked through aisles and aisles of club stuff and soon enough we reached the back. There I saw this mid-forties blonde and light brown haired woman stacking glasses in a box. I looked around a little bit and saw this mid-forties guy, also, with the same hair bringing down bottles of drinks.

"Mommy , daddy, guess who's here?" Belle said.

They turned around and smiled when they saw Ray. His mom went up to hug him. His dad stayed in place. Then they notices me.

"Ray introduce this lovely girl to us." His dad said.

I blushed and looked down. "Mom, dad, this is Olivia White. . .my girlfriend."

"It's so nice to meet you." Ray's mom said. "He's told is so much that I think of you as a daughter. I was beginning to wonder of Ray was ever going to introduce you to us."

"It's nice to meet you too, Mr. and Mrs. Beech." I said. "And Ray has never told me about his family until just recently."

"Please call is Jake and Jackie." Ray's dad said.

"Sure." I said smiling.

Soon we heard the door opening and closing. It was followed by a voice.

"Mom, dad I'm done cleaning the pool."

Then I saw another male. I figured it was Ray's older brother. He had the same hair and eyes as the rest of the family. Guess blue eyes and blonde with light brown hair is dominant in Ray's family.

"And who might this be?" He asked.

"Ethan that's Owivia." Belle said. "And don't flirt with her. She's taken."

"I wouldn't even try munchkin." He said. "I'm Ethan, Ray's older brother. You must be the girlfriend."

"Gee I hope I am." I joked. "If not then I got dressed up for nothing."

They laughed at that. "I like her." Ethan said. "She changed you from having girlfriends every other week to actually settling for one girl. She even made you nicer. And she has humor. Ray. . .you let this girl go, I'll hurt you."

I was surprised by what he said. "Ray did I really change you?"

"Livs you did. Since the first day I met you I saw that you were different. I was attracted to you and that attraction grew into something more. And I would choose you over anything."

"Ray. . ." I said tearing.

He kissed me softly. We heard soft 'Aww's from his family. We talked a little bit more until Ray told his parents that we had to go to our date. They nodded their heads and hugged us goodbye. Belle told us that next time he should come with me to the club when it's open and with our other friends. We agreed and walked out; once we were in the car, Ray leaned over and blind folded me.

"It's only for now." He said. "I'll take it off when we get to the place."

"You better." I said and he chuckled.

Soon enough the car was moving. We talked about anything and everything and soon enough I felt the car stopping. I heard the car door opening and closing and soon I felt air hit my arms and legs. Ray helped me out of the car and closed the door. He led me walking to where ever it was we were going. I could smell that we were outdoors. Soon enough we stopped and I felt the blindfold being untied. What I saw made me gasp. There was a garden and in the middle was a gazebo with white lights all over it, but they weren't turned on just yet. There was a CD player playing classical music and white and ivory drapes. There was a picnic basket in the middle of it all. I looked at Ray and smiled.

"Ray this is beautiful." I said.

"I'm glad you like it." He said. "I had asked my mom for advice since you're different from all the other girls I know."

I smiled and followed him to the picnic basket. I sat down and he brought sandwiches, fruit and lemonade. I grabbed a sandwich while he poured us lemonade. As we ate we talked about everything, but mostly his family. After we finished eating we just sat there looking at the sunset. I cuddled up to him and placed my head on his chest as he placed his arm around me. Then I began to poke him.

"So you're gonna be like that?" He said as I giggled.

Soon I felt him hoer over me with a glint in his eyes. I gave him a confused look and soon felt him tickling me. I began laughing and tried to stop him, but my actions were useless.

"Ray. . .stop. . .please. . .can't breathe." I said in between laughs. With that he stopped and brought me up to stand with him. "What are you doing?"

"Well I'm going to ask you to dance with me?"

"Sure." I said.

Soon enough we were dancing as the sky became dark. I saw the lights on the gazebo turn on. We continued dancing until we couldn't anymore. We sat down and Ray handed me another cup of lemonade. I took it and drank it like it was my life preserver. Then I felt Ray shift. I looked up at him confused.

"I should get you home." He said.

"Right." I said understanding.

He put the things back away in the picnic basket and then he grabbed my hand. We walked back to his car and he opened the passenger door for me. Once I was in, he closed the door and walked to the driver's side. Soon enough he was pulling out of his driveway.

"So that was part of your house?" I asked.

"Yep. Next time I'll bring you here so you can see the whole house." He said grabbing my hand. "And we can also hang out."

"I'll keep you to that." I said smiling.

Soon enough we arrived to my house. He walked out and opened the door for me. I smiled and he walked me up to the door. From the corner of my eye I saw Stella, Mo and Jeanne looking out the window. Once we reached the door I faced Ray and smiled.

"I had a nice time." I said. "Your family's fun."

"Thanks, I'll tell them that." He said. "And I had a nice time too."

With that I felt myself leaning in and he did the same. Then I felt his lips on mine. The kiss at first was sweet like the first time we kissed and soon Ray deepened it just like the first time. Soon enough we broke apart breathing heavily. I smiled at him and he smiled back with his heart melting smile. I felt my heart beat quicker and we leaned in to kiss again. And soon enough we broke apart again.

"Well that's a really good way in saying goodnight." I said.

"Definitely." We kissed one last time. "Night."

"Night." He said.

With that he walked down the sidewalk and back to his car. I smiled and waved goodbye as he drove off. I turned around and was getting ready to open the door, when it opened itself. I was pulled in and led to the living room. That's when I saw that I was surrounded by mom, Mo, Stella and Jeanne. They looked at expectantly and I just stared at them confused.

"What happened?" Mo asked.

"What happened what?"

She rolled her eyes. "Tell us about your date with Ray."

I rolled my eyes and sighed. I told them everything and Mo squealed all through out my explanation. When I finished mom came up to me and told me something important.

"Livs, what would you say to me and your father adopting another kid? Scott's okay with it, we just want to know your opinion."

I though of Aiden and responded, "I would love it."

"Okay, tomorrow I'll go with your father and we'll adopt someone from the orphanage that you guys performed at." She said getting up and walking out the living room.

"And tomorrow we'll have to have some fun." Mo said. "Just us girls."

"What'll we do?" Stella.

"Well since its Saturday tomorrow, why don't we go to this karaoke place just two blocks down from Dante's?"

"Sure." We said.

With that we all went upstairs to get ready for bed. Once we were set we all went to sleep. It took me a little while longer because I was still giddy from my date with Ray. Then I heard my phone vibrate on my bedside table.
