Steele - Round 2
"Do you want to catch a movie tonight? " Max asked, right before heading to his car. "Just two people getting together for a fun time."
Alice had looked surprised. "Yes, that would be nice," she'd shyly answered.
"Great. I get home around 5 or 6. Come by around then and we'll go." Max waved and jumped in the car.
He watched how passionate Alice got about the things she loved. The wind blew a strand of her in her face. Smiling, he gently brushed the hair behind her ear and stilled. Could this be what he'd been craving for the past few months?
He noticed that Alice had grown incredibly still too. As though she was waiting for him to make up his mind. Leaning slowly forward, Max kissed her. It felt like a dam burst and he felt so much emotion pouring out.
Pulling slightly back, Alice met his eyes and said, "Max, I need to know that there's nothing between you and Stacy. I don't want to play any games."
Max was surprised. "No. There's nothing between Stacy and I. We were casually seeing each other, but there was nothing romantic. Not like this."
