Chapter 12: Of Beginnings and Ends

Before I’m even through the common room door, James has whisked me away to the dance floor, holding me close.

“Why are we slow dancing to a fast song?”

“There doesn’t always have to be an explanation you know, just go with it Lil.” He says, smiling.

I do as he says, and I find it’s one of the things I love most about James; his ability to just live. No plans, no rules, he just does what feels right.

I look around at the rest of our group and I see them having a great time. I smile at how far we’ve come in the past year and I wouldn’t have it any other way.

I feel James’ lips near my ear and I smile when he whispers,

“Come with me.”

I follow him up the stairs to the boys dorm and I know where this is going.

This isn’t the first time.
