Rob and Lily walked up to her house in silence. Lily was lost in thought, back in the past.

“I’ll walk you home Lily.”
“Oh, thank you Peredo, that’s very kind. Mum would go nuts if I walked home on my own.”
“We can’t let that happen, can we,” and he smiled.

Just one smile from him and Lily went weak at the knees. Now she was repulsed by it, now she had nightmares about it. She shivered.
“Lily? Are you cold? Here have my coat.” Rob draped his coat over Lily’s shoulders.
“Thank you.” Lily smiled. Rob smiled back and then quickly looked away again.

“Let’s stop on this bridge a minute.”
“Oh, it looks so lovely in the moonlight.”
“Not as lovely as you.”
Lily stood staring at the ground. Peredo Leatherleaf, the Peredo Leatherleaf, the best looking boy around had noticed her! Her of all people. And even said she was lovely! All her wildest dreams had come true.
“Lily, I’ve watched you from a distance for ages and I think you’re one of the best girls around.”
Lily glanced up and met Peredo’s eyes. He moved closer and…

“Lily, we’re here.”
“Oh I’m sorry. Lost in my own thoughts. I should’ve paid more attention to you.”It’s okay, I wasn’t very talkative either.”
“Thank you so much for the dinner it was lovely. I had a great time.”
“I’m glad.” They stood there for some time in silence, just looking anywhere but at each other. “Well…sleep well Lily,” Rob finally said. “See you around. Night.”
“Night,” she whispered as he walked away and only then did she notice.
She was still clutching onto his coat.
