Alexis had been nervously sitting on the couch for fifteen minutes. Her heart racing faster with every second that ticked on. She twiddled her thumbs. Her house was way to quite, it was almost eerily like. Ever since her mother kicked her older sister, Kate out of the house because of her eating disorder. She tried to remain calm but with each moment ticking closer and closer she felt extremely excited and nervous. She couldn’t handle sitting anymore, she got up off the couch and started walking nervously across the living room carpet, with each step she could feel her heels sinking into the plush carpet. She heard steps walking down the stairs. She saw her mother appear at the edge of the living room. “Hello dear,” her mother said. “You look quite beautiful Lexi.” Her mother said adoring her daughter in her red dress. “Let me go get the camera.” Her mother walked out of the room and off somewhere to go retrieve her high quality camera. The door bell rang and she felt her heart nearly pound out of her chest. Alexis walked over to the door excitedly, she wanted this moment to be like all the books she has read.
Alexis opened the door and she saw a very handsome Landon standing there. “Hello Landon,” She said shyly. “Come on in, my mother was just about to take some pictures of me. Well I guess now us.”
Landon smiled at Alexis’s shyness and nodded at her. “For sure.” He replied. “You look…” He paused trying to find a word that would do her any justice. “Captivating.” He decided. Landon had a wide vocabulary and was a great writer. As the two of them walked more in the room, Landon noticed Alexis’ mother standing there. He walked up to her, Alexis still close to his side, and introduced himself. “Hello, Ms. Matlin. I’m Landon Goldsworthy. It’s a pleasure to meet you.” Ms. Matlin returned the greeting and started taking pictured of the young couple. “Wait!” Landon almost shouted. “I almost forgot the most important thing!” He said as he pulled the rose corsage out of his pocket and gently grabbed Alexis’ hand. He looked deep into her warm brown eyes and smirked as he tied the corsage onto her delicate wrist. He then brought her hand up to his lips and kissed her knuckles softly. He then put this arm around her and faced her mom again to finish up the picture taking.
