The Story I Promised You All





Chapter 4

First Date

*Buzz, buzz, buzz* “Oliver, how unexpected of you unless you found something in my old room.” I say to him.

“Well, I haven’t found anything, I just wanted to see what you are doing this weekend.” He says to me.

“I don’t think so, why?” I ask extremely curious.


“Well, I was wondering if I could take you out for the day, and maybe take you for dinner as well.” he says to me.

“Wait, so are you asking me out on a date?” I quiz him.

“Yeah, I guess I am. So, what do you say?” He asks.

YES!!!!!, I’m going on a date at the weekend.

“Ok, when and where should I meet you?” I asked him.

“Meet me at your old place around 10-ish" he tells me.

“Ok, I’ll be there.” I exclaim.

“Ok, I can’t wait to see you.” He says. “Bye.”

“Ok, bye” I say and hang up.

“Mum, Dad, I'm going on a date at the weekend with a kid from school called Oliver and he is really nice, I think you will like him because he and his adoptive parents are the ones who moved into our old house, and I will be leaving around 10, if that’s ok with you.” I inform them.


“Yes, that’s perfectly fine, you do realize that you don’t have to ask our permission to go on a date. Just as long as you bring him back here afterwards,” my mum says

“Well, he said he was also taking me out to dinner.” I say, excitedly, “I just can’t wait.”


“Hi,” I say,

“WOW, you look stunning, how did I manage to find someone as amazing as you in the space of a few months.” he exclaims.

“I’m not sure but you are very lucky to have found me” I say jokingly.

“Are you ready then?” He asks me.

“Yeah, I'm ready to spend the whole day with you, although, my adoptive parents want me to take you home with me to meet them.” I informed him.

“I can’t wait to meet them because they sound amazing.” He says to me


I turn away from him quickly because I can feel myself starting to blush.

“Let's go then” he says. “We don’t want to miss the start of the film now do we?” he says to me.

Cinema and Dinner, he really knows how to spoil me. It is all I could ever wish for on a first date.

“The film we are going to see is a romance film” he tells me.

“Oh, what film is it?” I ask

“You’ll just have to wait and see” he tells me,  

“Please just give me a little hint at least.” I say to him.

“Sorry, no can do.” He exclaims.


I’m so full of excitement and curiosity that I am close to bursting at the seams.


“Here we are.” He tells me.

“Cinema De Lux, did you secretly know that this is my favourite place or something?” I asked him,

“Well, it’s not that hard to guess with the number of times you have mentioned it at school” he says

“Oops” I giggle.

As we walk inside, he takes my hand, and a shiver runs down my spine because I have never done this before, and it is giving me an adrenaline rush.

“Two tickets for Oliver Blackmon.” He says to the receptionist.


“Here you go, enjoy the film you two.” She says to us

As we turn and walk towards the escalator, I hear her say to her colleague, “they are such a cute couple aren’t they Sarah.”

We finally reached our screen and I noticed that the film is Twilight.

“Aw, this is my favourite film.” I say to him

“I know it is, so I booked the whole screen just for you.” he tells me.

“You are just the sweetest.” I say to him

He replies with a kiss that takes my breath away.

“I’m so sorry, I don’t know what came over me.” He said.

“Don’t worry about it, I'm not complaining which means...” I said and kissed him.

“Wow. You don’t waste time do you.” Oliver said.


“Life’s too short to waste time.” I said to him.

After the film, he took me to a posh restaurant and he paid for everything even though I told him that I would pay half of it, but he decided to pay for it himself when I went to the toilet, but I told him that I would pay him back.

“Look, Axel, there is no need for you to pay me back, Like I said the other day, ‘I will take you to dinner’, which meant that I would be paying instead of you.” He said to me.

“Oh, ok, well, if you’re sure.” I said to him. I checked my watch to see what time it was, ‘20:30pm’


“it’s getting pretty late; would you like to stay at my place for the night?” I asked him.

“Yeah, if your parents are okay with that.” he said.

“Well, before I left this morning, they said that I don’t need to ask their permission anymore.” I told him.

“Wow, they sound absolutely amazing.” He exclaimed.



“Mum, Dad, I’m home and I’ve brought someone with me.” I say to them

“We’re in the living room” Says my mum, “We’re just watching the tv.”

“This way.” I said to Oliver

“Mum, Dad, this is Oliver, the one I was telling you about the other day.” I tell them.

“Hi, Mr. and Mrs...” he says

“Leader, dear.” my mum says “what a nice young man you are Oliver. I can tell that we will get along just fine.”

“Mum, will you please stop being embarrassing?” I plead

“Spoil sport” she harks at me.

We sit there for roughly 2 hours talking about what we did today and getting to know each other more and become better acquainted with one another.


“it’s getting late, why don’t you two head upstairs and get some sleep.” My dad said.

“Ok, see you both in the morning then.” I say to them sleepily. “Follow me, Oliver.”

We climbed the stairs to my room slowly and when we entered my room, I realized that my bed was too small so I offered the bed to Oliver saying that I would sleep on the floor, but he wouldn’t let me sleep on the floor.

“If anyone’s going to sleep on the floor, it will be me” he said to me

“No because you are my guest and I want you to be comfortable while you are here.” I said to him

“Well, we could always squeeze in together” he said.

“It might work but only if you feel comfortable with it.” I say to him.


“I don’t mind, I would never share a bed with anyone unless it’s you.” He says to me, smiling which makes me blush.

“Well then neither do I” I tell him.

End of Chapter 4
