"Hey Ollie!" I hear Austyn's voice from behind me then soon feel his hand grab mine.

"Stop calling me that!" I groaned while Austyn just giggled, "You know, you lost the bet so you can't give me a nickname."

"Right..." He sighed.

"So, what are you doing tonight?" I ask him. I have an idea of what I can make him do for me.

"Um I'm not sure. Why?" He asked before gasping, "Are you asking me out on a date?"

"Don't get ahead of yourself," I laughed, "You have to do whatever I say for a day remember?"

"Yeah, yeah I know. Can't blame a guy for being hopeful. I'll text my parents and tell them I'm going to a friend's house after school." He said defeatedly.

"Great. I'll meet you after school and you can follow me to my house." I tell him.

Austyn nodded right as the bell rang, signaling for people to go to class. Suddenly Austyn's lips are on me and before I could kiss him back Austyn pulled away.

"I'll see you at lunch." He smiled before walking away from me, heading to his first period.

My lips form a small smile before I start walking to my first class as well.

"You want me to bring you ice cream? You brought me to you house just so I can bring you  ice cream instead of you getting up?" Austyn asked surprised.

"Yup." I nodded.

"Okay then." He shrugs and disappears into the kitchen.

I gave Austyn a tour of my house when we got here so he knew where everything was at.

I turn on the tv and search for something good to watch. Finding nothing, I decide to go to Netflix and clicked on Penny Dreadful. This show was so confusing in the beginning but I still love it.

Seconds later, Austyn walks in with a large bowl of ice cream.

"I didn't know how much you wanted so I just put a lot." Austyn says while handing me the bowl.

"Thanks babe." I tell him without looking away from the television.

Austyn sits down next to me and I glance over at him quickly, noticing his cheeks have turned pink.

I feel Austyn's eyes on me but I don't pay attention to it until he speaks up.

"Oliver what happened to your hands?" He asked concerned, staring at my busted knuckles.

His question catches me off guard and I search my brain for a good response.

"I tripped while I was in the shower and everything fell down on me. I don't know how that caused my hands to get like that though. It hurt like hell thats for sure." I lied. That was so bad! Why did I say such a stupid answer?

Austyn looked at me disbelievingly but didn't question me further which I was thankful for.

When I finished my ice cream, I set the bowl on the coffee table and continued watching Netflix. Austyn's head dropped onto my shoulder at some point but after awhile we ended up with us laying down on the couch, him laying in front of me and my arm draped across his small waist.

Austyn turns to face me and stares into my eyes for a few seconds before placing his lips on  mine.

For once, our kissing session didn't turn sexual. Instead we just laid facing each other staring into each other's eyes and occasionally pecking the other's lips.

There's something about Austyn that makes me act like a different person. But a good different. I've never been this affectionate with someone and it's really unnerving me.

I've known this boy for five days and he's already having an effect on me. I can't fall for him in a month. I need to keep reminding myself that I don't want a relationship and emit the freedom of doing whatever I want to whoever I want.

Maybe he's different, I thought but quickly shook it away. I'm not going to fall for him. Not today and definitely not by the end of the month.

"What are you thinking so hard about?" Austyn whispered, pulling me away from my thoughts.

"Just about how beautiful your brown eyes are." I lied. Now that I look at them, his eyes are actually very pretty.

"My eyes look like mud," He responded with a look of distaste, "I would rather have blue or green eyes. Brown is so boring."

"I think you look amazing with brown eyes."

"Thank you. Your eyes are prettier. I love green eyes." He smiled at me.

"I'm glad because you're stuck with them for the next month." I joked.

Austyn didn't respond. He only continued to stare into my eyes with a small smile on his lips.

After a few minutes he finally says something.

"I should probably go home." He whispered sadly.

"You can't stay just a little bit longer?" I ask him hopeful.

"I wish I could but I can't, I'm sorry. I'll see you tomorrow at school." Austyn sat up and stood up from the couch.

"I'll walk you to the door." I offer and he nods, following me to my front door.

"I had a nice time with you today even though you made me get you ice cream." He laughed slightly.

"Thank you by the way."

"Actually thank you for not making me doing anything sexual. I wasn't in the mood for that kind of stuff today and just cuddling on the couch was really nice."

"You're welcome," I smile at him and peck his lips, "you should get home before your parents get mad."

"You're right. Bye Oliver." He waved and walked to his car. I watched him get in and pull out of the driveway before I closed the door.

"Was that the boy that you made a deal with?" I hear Chris' voice from behind me, scaring me.

"Um yeah." I nod.

"He's cute. I saw the way you act with him. I've never seen you like that with someone before. He's changing you, little brother. Maybe it's for the best." He tells me seriously before walking away.

He can't be right, can he?
