As I drove slowly down the street, I wondered if the risks were greater than the reward. The problem was I just wasn’t sure which one I was more interested in – the risk or the reward. The risk was the fact I was potentially doing something illegal, but I knew the reward would be Tanner. Probably. All I had ever wanted in my eighteen years was Tanner. I knew he would see me in a completely different light after tonight. There was no way he wouldn’t.
I turned my brights on and started to pick up speed on the country road leading to Tanner’s house. My decision was made and I knew I was going to follow through with everything I had planned with the ultimate goal of making Tanner mine.
I knew he ignored me because he was intimidated by me. By my courage. By my strength. I knew he knew my name because how could he not after all the years we had been in the same classes from Kindergarten to senior year. I knew he was just playing games with me. I slowed as I cruised by his house because I knew he sat on his front porch and didn’t him to know it was me coming for him.
I wanted to be a surprise. I knew I wanted him and I knew he would eventually want me. He just didn’t know it. Yet. But I intended to teach him. I knew he was a quick learner.
