The leap of faith

‘Let’s do it’, she said.

He stared at her, bewildered. If there was anyone who could suggest something so silly, so impulsive, it was she.

 ‘No way, you’ve lost your mind.’

 Her face fell.

 ‘So many people do! It’s not that big a deal anymore. Why do we have to be the good ones always? Besides, no one needs to know right?’

 He shook his head. ‘No. I am not ok with this at all. You just don’t do these things one fine day because everyone else has. It is not a joke. There is a time and place for everything. Besides I don’t want the first time to be here.’

 ‘You’re a prude, you realise? I cannot believe that a girl has to coax you into something like this! I am so sure anyone else would have been all set at once.’

 He looked hurt. ‘I’m not being a prude, I am just being sensible. You’re all okay now, and if something goes wrong, you’ll be the first one to say that I should have stopped you.’

She pouted. That was true. ‘Ok, I will be honest, it’s not that I am not scared, but I know for a fact that it cannot be that wrong if it is with you.’

 He melted a little, but maintained his stance. ‘No means no.’

 She turned away. Silence followed.

 ‘You are such a spoilsport.’

 He refused to respond.

 She turned back slowly. ‘We’ll be very careful. Nothing can go wrong. Trust me. It’s us we’re talking about!’

 He sighed, giving up. ‘Ok. Fine. You always have to have it your way. In any case,  at least let me arrange for some protection? And God knows where I will find a store around here.’

 ‘Emotional blackmail, always works with this guy!’, she thought, grinning to herself  a whole 2 hours later, as they jumped into the murky, moss filled pool of water for their first swim ever, life jackets fastened securely.

      Ok, confession. I haven’t, this be fiction :)

      Btw, it is quite sad that people assumed that it couldn’t be what it looked like. I mean, I would too if I knew my regular writing, but still! :( Very sad.
