Across the Realms-Chapter 1: Date Night"I've missed date night." I grinned, reaching out and snagging Alec with my arm to pull him closer.
He smiled a little and settled into my side as we walked, "I have to. Well. I've missed it when it's successful." I felt his elbow jab playfully into my side.
"Hey, I didn't know you'd be allergic to those flowers! Are you going to hold that date against me forever?"
"Potentially. I mean, it was our first date."
"Personally, I don't count that as our first date. I count that little Italian Restaurant downtown as our first date because that was the first time we went out after you came out to your parents."
