Suddenly nothing felt right about this situation, she was more than confused by both herself and by the stranger that stood before her. So close, much too close she though to herself as she began to take a step back when he apologized about the blood on her hands, explaining that it was merely tears rather than something more and she paused in step, even more confused. There was so much of this world that this small town girl needed to learn and quicker than imaginable, for if she did not, she would surely be swept up into something that would get the better of her and either break her or quite possibly worse.
He held her hand and then for a reason beyond her his perfect mouth was pressing in around her fingertips and she stood there, mouth agap and a mess. Licking her lips she bit down upon the corner and though her thoughts begged and argued with her to take a step back she could not, her heart continued to beat wildly as he looked down upon her. She thought of her family, tried to remind herself of her boyfriend, and even tried to remind herself of some prayer that she'd learned in sunday school as a child, but for the life of her she could barely remember her own name.
At the shift of his hand, the cup of her cheek she drew another breath in awe and then swallowed, licking her lips again as he spoke to her, urging her away from the question that rang out in her ears, a growing curiousity of his early years. Blinking finally shepressed her lips together as her mouth shut after moments agap, "I'm sorry..." She apologized and took an awkward step back, nearly falling backwards, but she pushed a hand to his chest, "I have a... uh... I have a boyfriend, Desmond. It was nice meeting you and I apologize for any ill history that I may have stired within you but I uh...I should... go. Thank you..." She swallowed again and took a shaky breath, one more step back, and her eyes never left his until she reminded herself that walking backwards was not really the safest thing for a clumbsy girl to do. Turning round she couldn't help one more glance over her shoulder back at him, those intense blue eyes, so captivating and haunting, so deep and dark, there was something much more there than just the sexuality that he obviously exuded. It was this glance back however that caused her to trip, catching herself before she fell entirely Beth laughed briefly at herself and gathered her composure,standing upright, and smoothing her dress before shaking her head at herself, running a hand through her golden curls.
"I'm in over my head here..." She whispered to herself, "heaven forgive me..." she begged to God above as she pushed open a nearby door and stepped inside, protected by the high walls and stairwells that climbed, protected by the passing students even, lost in their own right, lost in their own worlds and conversations, knowing not of the moment shared between two strangers only moments ago on such a beautiful day, standing on the green green grass, and beneath the bright sun. She drew another breath and took a step forward, focusing on continuing her day, focusing on making it back to her room safely without another interuption.
