And I'm far from depressed too!

“Well, you’ll have to come with me on my travels at some point then,” Rory suggested. He’d love to take Amelle with him and show her all the wonderful creatures that he loved so much. His work was so important to him. It wasn’t just a job; his enthusiasm for magical creatures was part of who he was, and was therefore something that he wanted to share with her. The idea of actually taking Amelle with him on his travels was something he hoped she’d agree to make a reality!

He couldn’t believe that he’d actually found the courage to kiss Amelle, but he didn’t regret a thing! The initial moment of doubt that came when she didn’t kiss him back was quickly forgotten when she did return the kiss, and the corners of his lips turned up into a smile as his risk definitely paid off.

“I’m sure I could manage both,” replied Rory, grinning down at her. She had kissed him back! He put his arm around her, unable to stop smiling. If she was happy with kissing, then cuddling was definitely ok, and late nights in front of the fire were, in Rory’s mind, perfect for doing exactly that.

“I was planning on doing this properly, you know,” he admitted. “I…” he paused, half censoring himself but then deciding to go ahead with what he’d meant to say. He’d kissed her now, so she knew he was interested in her, and he wanted her to know how much. “I know we’ve only known each other for a number of months, but I’m serious about this, about us. If we’re going to do this, I want to properly give us a go. I want to take you on dates, and cuddle you in the evenings, tell other people, and be in a committed relationship.”

He wasn’t naïve. He knew that liking someone wasn’t always enough. There were often problems in a relationship, and not everything always worked out. However, he was determined that, if this relationship failed, it would not be for lack of trying on his part. Some people might think that they hadn’t known each other long enough for a relationship to be successful, but Rory was used to getting to know people quickly and was sure that his feelings for Amelle weren’t solely based on physical attraction. Despite his initial intentions to tread with caution, he’d just gone for it and kissed her, and now he wanted to make sure Amelle knew that he didn’t want this to be a casual relationship. However... he was also aware that most people didn’t jump in with terms and expectations moments after admitting an attraction. He was now having second thoughts about the timing of his declaration, and was starting to regret his lack of self-censorship.

“No, wait, I’m sorry if that was me getting a little ahead of the situation,” he apologised, wincing slightly. He didn’t want to ruin everything by being so serious straight after such a perfect kiss. “Can I start that again?” He snuggled up a little closer to Amelle (okay, yes, Rory liked cuddles), and smiled at her hopefully. “Miss Nicchi, may I have the pleasure of taking you out to dinner next weekend?”
