So after Ali blurted out that we shouldnt ever sleep together again I just shook my head, turned around and walked away. She asked me what was wrong and I just said, I really dont get how you just cant accept any feelings and you walk away from everything. I shut the door to my room before I could let her get a word in and she didnt come knocking to talk about it so I kinda got my answer right then and there. I was getting madder than hell just thinking about everything and all the words she said.
After a few days of not seeing each other or talking, we sat down one night and just hashed things out. We agreed to just stay friends and see what happens. So, fast forward a bit, the whole friends deal went out the window real quick. We spent the next several weeks acting as if we were boyfriend/girlfriend. It was awesome, we didnt ever talk about a relationship yet we spent every moment possible together. We went out on dates, held hands, did stupid childish things but we laughed the whole time. Not once did we ever talk about making things official or utter the word relationship. I guess you could say friends with benefits type of deal.
So this went on for a little over a month and at this point I think there was only about 3 months left on our apartment lease and there was no talk of us continuing to live together. Anyway, over the course of the month or so that Ali and were acting like boyfriend/girlfriend, all of our friends in our group would secretly ask us whats going on, are we dating? And we never really said anything, it was more like, were just having fun and going with the flow. My buddies would come up to me at work and were like, so what the hell is going on with you and Ali and I would be like, not really sure, just chilling and enjoying each others company.
I guess in a way it was probably a little awkward for all our friends, I mean, we had the same circle of friends. So, things were good, my job was going great, I had a booming social life, I was just in a really good spot in my life....or so I thought. Our friends wanted to have a big night out and this is where this chapter starts its end. We all made it up to be a big deal, we got all dressed up to the 9s, made dinner reservations at a nice restaurant, it was going to be a great night. Once everyone got together it was so much fun, all the women looked great and the guys got all suited up, it was so much fun. Dinner was awesome and then we decided to hit up a local bar around the corner.
We got into the bar and it was super crowded but we found a nice corner in the upstairs bar where we could all sit and talk. Great atmosphere with great people that night, a night I will never forget, and for more reasons than one. It was one of those nights, where everything just felt right. Im downstairs with P and hes like man, you should really talk to Ali tonight about where yall stand. I thought about it and said you know what, might as well go for it and hopefully get a straight answer....
