Chapter 6: Baseball Sketching and Kissing OH MY!

When i woke up a few hours later he was fast asleep snoring loudly. I carefully got up trying hard not to wake him and grabbed my sketch book and began sketching him. It turned out really good so I tore it out and taped it to the wall. I continued sketching random things around his room like his posters and his boom box. I was really bored. I got up and walked outta his room and locked the door. I went in the main room and saw Kobra Kid lying on the couch staring at the ceiling. "Hey kid. What are you up to?" he asked without moving. "Don't move" i replied and sat on the floor and began sketching him immediently. "okay." he said and didn't move a muscle. I finished the sketch and tore it out and handed it to him. "Here you go. Sorry if it sucks." i said as i turned to walk back to Ghoul's room to see if he was awake. "Hey this is really good. Where'd you learn to draw?" When i turned back around he was sitting up. "I taught myself." i said tucking my hair behind my ear. "Your a good teacher then, cause this is awesome." He said smiling. "Well thanks." i added before turning. I didn't look up and almost ran into Ghoul. "Hey your up! How'd you sleep?" i asked him. I noticed he was holding my picture in his hand. "I slept good so it seems. This is awesome. Why randomly sketch every thing i don't know, but your good at it." Ghoul looked at me with a big grin on his face. "I'm glad you like it. I didn't think it was all that great." I said staring at the floor. He put his hand under my chin and lifted my head until i was looking into his perfect hazel eyes. "I love it." He said very convincingly. I smiled and looked down again. He leaned down and kissed my cheek. I blushed and headed back to his room. When i got there i ran in shut the door and sat on the floor. I couldn't stop smiling. I loved it when he kissed me. It made me feel wanted ya know. I liked it. I heard hi unlocking the door and stood up. He opened the door and looked at me and smiled. "What are you smiling at?" I asked. "Your face is as red as a tomato. Are you okay?" He said. I could tell he was trying not to laugh. "I'm perfectly fine." I said trying to encourage him that i really was fine. I could tell it was failing though. I walked over to him and took his hand. I walked him over to the bed and i sat down. "I'm fine." I smiled still blushing. He looked at me and held my gaze. His eyes were just the best thing to stare at. He said "I believe you. I was just messing with you." He leaned over and placed a gentle kiss on my forehead. I leaned over and kissed his cheek. "Thanks for taking me out of that heat when you did." i said staring into his eyes. It was hard not to. They were so perfect. He smiled at me and blushed a little. "Your welcome. I'm glad you agreed to stay." He smiled at me. "Me too." I looked at him closely. He had a tattoo on his neck. A scorpion none the less. It was really cool. I liked it a lot. He smiled at me and layed back. "You so lazy." I said giggling a little bit. He was lazy. I mean he just woke up! "Yeah i get that a lot." He said closing his eyes and smiling. I grabbed his hand and tried to pull him up. "Come on. Lets go out side and through my baseball around. It's more fun than you think." He grunted "I don't wanna." He was heavy so sliding him off the bed was my only choice. I pulled on his arm and sure enough he slid off the bed and into the floor. "ow." He said and stood up. "come on!!" I grabbed my baseball and ran out the door and waited for him in the main room. He finally came out of his room. Slowly but surely we made it outside. "Catch." I yelled and tossed the ball to him. He caught it effortlessly. "Why are we doing this?" he asked tossing it back. "Me and Ritalin use to do it all the time." i added throwing it back. "It's a good way to pass the time." I said smiling. He was standing there holding the baseball. "So. Where do you think Ritalin is anyway?" He said using his hand to shield his face from the sun. "There's no telling. I mean she left a week or 2 before the Dracs came. I'm lucky to be alive." I walked over to him and stood there for a minute. "So. Why did she leave?" He asked looking into my eyes. "Dracs killed her friend. She lived 3 miles away and Ritalin had a feeling that they would hit there next. And as always she was right." I held his gaze. "well. Do you think shes okay?" He said still looking at me. "yeah. She's a tough girl. She'll be okay." I said. He took both of my hands and held them in his. He leaned forward and we were nose to nose. "I'm glad you didn't forget her. I don't remember my family at all. I remember running away. That's about it." He said softly. I replied "Well it's hard for me to forget things. I just. I can't" i smiled a little bit. "That's a good thing." He said. He leaned over a little bit more and kissed my lips. His lips were soft and sweet. When he pulled back he grabbed my hand and lead me back inside and we went to his room. He walked over and sat on his bed "Sorry. heat of the moment." He said staring at his boots. "It's okay. I kinda liked it." I walked over and sat next to him. He took my hand in his and said "Really? I thought you just wanted to be friends." He turned and looked at me. I brushed his bangs out of his face and leaned forward and kissed his soft lips. "Well this changes every thing." We sat there grinning and laughing at each other. It was perfect. I grabbed my sketch book and began drawing. I don't know why, but it felt like a sketch pad moment. He stood up and walked over and sat on the window seal. "don't move." I said and began sketching him. "okay?" He said and didn't move. When i finished he tore it out and taped it up. "Your turn." I looked at him and walked over to the window seal and sat down. He began sketching. "I didn't know you could draw." I said. He was just finishing up and said "Me either." I looked at his sketch and it was really good. It was a perfect way to spend a very hot day. There were no calls so we just hung out all day. It was perfect. He lay down and i did the same. I placed my head on his chest and listened to his heart beat just like i did every night. "Good night Dren." He said quietly. "Good night Ghoul." I whispered half asleep. I passed out pretty quick. It was a great ending to a great day.
