As you may already know, it's that time of the year when the air becomes crisp, apples are picked, football games are in season, sweaters and Uggs are pulled out of hibernation, hot cider is served, and leaves change colour. Fall is here.
After waking up on a Saturday morning to rays of light peeking into my bedroom and getting ready to conquer the day, I could tell there was change in the air. I decided to lightly curl the ends of my hair and stick with a natural makeup look consisting of soft neutrals and glowy pink cheeks and lips. Since it seemed chillier than usual, I threw on a sweater and skinny jeans, completing my comfy- chic look with a pair of combat boots.
I ran out the door, planning to meet the girls at Starbucks, and jumped into my car and drove quickly, but safely, to the coffee shop. Walking in, the aroma of freshly ground coffee beans and baked goodies washed over me as I spotted Chloe and the girls saving a seat for me in a booth, far away from prying eyes. As I walked over to the group, I felt someone knock into me causing their drink to spill all over my sweater.
"Oh, geez! I'm so sorry," a deep voice said, causing me to look up. My eyes locked with the same piercing green eyes which had bumped into me earlier this week. Ashton! Instead of getting angry at him for spilling his drink on me, I couldn't help but blush as he continued to fumble with his apologies. In the end I decided to speak up, in order to shut him up.
"Wow, you just can't help but keep bumping into me, can you?" I jokingly replied.
"Hey! You bumped into ME the first time, but now I feel bad about ruining your sweater," he sheepishly replied.
"Oh it's fine, I guess we're even now. Besides, I'm pretty sure latte stains are IN this season," I playfully teased.
"Well, you didn't spill a hot drink on me, so I can't say were even," he smirked, "In fact, I owe you a drink."
"Seriously, you don't have to, you know," I responded, rolling my eyes(even though I was secretly hoping he was serious).
"No, I WANT to," he replied, looking into my eyes with a serious expression, "here's my number, text me when you wanna take me up on the offer".
I quickly gave him mine, and we parted ways. I hastily walked over to the girls and slid into the booth. After making sure Ashton had left, I squealed like a fangirl and told the girls everything that went down.
"Oooooh! Marina's got a crushhhhhh," Chloe sang loudly until I smacked her arm and glared at her.
"And he's a total hawttie!" my other friend, Tiffany swooned, and the rest of the girls chorused their agreement.
"He's already heads over heals for you Rina, I ship it!" declared Chloe. I couldn't help but laugh as she struck a ridiculous pose, acting like she was superman or something. We all continued talking, gossiping, and laughing, as crisp air floated in every time a customer opened a door and made us clutch our pumpkin spice lattes tighter. I eventually tuned out the girls' conversations and turned to look out the cold window panes. I could see trees with red and gold leaves that would fall off with a few gusts of the wind. I could see a vendor selling apples and handing out small cups of hot cider for free. I could see people walking along the streets wearing scarves and Northfaces. As I turned back to look at the girls, I decided to have a toast, for the beginning of a new season and school year. I lifted up my cup and simply stated,"To the begging of a new school year and season!" The girls quickly echoed me, and we all cheered and downed our lattes, feeling content. <3
