"Well, where do you want to go? We can go anywhere you want," I said.
"Aaanywhere?!" Hayley asked, a greedy expression on her face.
"Yes, anywhere," I said.
"Well, Hawaii would be pretty nice, don't you think?! Haha, just kidding. I would never ask you to do that. Do you know how expensive those plane tickets are?" she said.
"Sure, Hawaii. This should be fun!" I said, and she looked confused. "What? Trust me, money isn't a problem for my family." I said. She still looked pretty guilty. "Promise." I said. She still looked uncomfortable.
"I don't know about this, John..." she said, so I decided to help her decision in a...certain way. It felt nice, with her lips on mine. I don't know how long it went on, but I don't care. I loved every second of it. When we finally stopped kissing, I looked at her. She looked pleased, but uncomfortable. Again.
"What's wrong? Do you still feel guilty about me spending so much money? Because--" I got cut off.
"No, no, no, it's not that. I mean, John, I like you and everything, but...I kind of just met you. I don't know if I should run away with someone I just met, like, two days ago." she said.
If vampires could cry, that would be me right now. I felt so terrible. Not just because of what she said, but of what I had done. How could I not think of that? I guess I was so caught up in a silly crush, I lost my sense of reasoning.
"I'm so sorry, Hayley. I didn't even think about that. It was wrong to do that, and you don't have to go if you don't want to. I would completely understand." I said, trying to keep the pain off my face.
"No, no, no." she repeated, and then she walked over and comforted me. I felt like such a baby.
