Mornington-By-Mere – (74) Sixteen (Part 02)
Alexa was still wearing her full school uniform consisting of black knee length socks, a black and white plaid skirt, black jacket, white blouse and a plaid tie and her knee was still bleeding so he fished out a hankie from his pocket and handed it to her.
“Use that” he said “that will help for the moment”
Alexa dabbed at the cut and winced as Matt looked for somewhere he could sit her down.
“Come on, come and sit down and I’ll clean it up” he said and directed her to a tree stump a few yards away where he sat her down and then he knelt down in front of her and produced a bottle of water from his bag.
“Are you glad we’ve broken up?” he asked
“Yes and no” she replied
He found her response a little strange but added
“Bad luck having to go to school on your birthday”
“Oh no it wasn’t so bad” she said
“Well Happy birthday sweet sixteen” he said and then he irrigated the wound with water and cleaned it with the hankie
“Ooh” Alexa winced as she sat perched on the tree stump
“Sweet sixteen and never been kissed”
She added and blushed
“You’re joking” he replied looking at her face and she blushed deeper and averted her eyes.
“So what are you doing for your birthday?” he asked by way of changing the subject
“Well Mum and Dad are taking me and to my favourite restaurant in Shallowfield on Saturday night” she said very pleased with herself.
“But I was hoping that today, we could do something together”
“You and me?” he asked in disbelief
“Yes” she replied and reached forward and put a hand on each side of his face before leaning forward and kissing him.
Matt wasn’t expecting that, the kiss came right out of left field it only lasted a few moments and when their lips parted she said
“Now I’m a sweet sixteen who has been kissed”
He gave a heavy sigh then leant into her saying
“Oh yes again” she agreed and their lips met again this time in a longer more languid union and when she broke away he sighed again.
Never in his wildest dreams did he imagine that the gorgeous Alexa Newbold would want him, she was beautiful, funny and smart and he was just a farm boy.
He reached into his pocket and took out a small package.
“Here you are birthday girl” he said to her “I have a birthday gift for you”
“I thought I’d just had my present” she said and giggled
“What do you mean?”
“This is the best Birthday present I could possibly have received” she replied and they kissed again.
When the kiss was over she opened the little package to reveal a small embossed box and inside that was a small Gold locket and inside that there was some engraving which read “Sweet sixteen”.
And the moment she read it she threw herself at him and showered him with kisses
“I love it, I love it” she said and hugged him and after a moment or two she said coyly
“Can I have another present?”
“Are you sure you want another one?”
“I think so” She replied
“Well if you’re not bothered” he began “I’ll go and find Mandy Price she won’t turn me down”
“Don’t you dare” she said putting her arms around him “Loose lips can find someone else to snog, you’re mine now”
