Kate First Date

Kate First DateKate was at Katy’s house, sitting in front of a mirror, breathing fast and talking faster. She was getting ready for her first date with Kevin, a cute guy from her art workshop she attends after school. At least she thought he was cute. He was a tall, scrawny guy, who wore round glasses. He was very shy, but very funny when he let himself go. She liked that she was the one to get him out of his shell. Plus she loved his paintings. They had their own unique little touch to them.

But now she was a mess. Katy was there to help her with the make-up, hair, clothes and some tips while she was at it. But Kate was very nervous. She wasn’t nervous around Kevin usually, and that was another reason she liked him, but the official nature of the date drove her crazy. Katy was calmly reassuring her and letting her know that everything will be fine.

Kate was very surprised when Kevin asked her out. She liked him, and she knew that he liked her, but she didn’t expect him to be so bold. As she was thinking about the whole event, the door bell rang. She jumped to her feet, but Katy sat her down and finished putting make-up on her. “Take a deep breath, Kate” said Katy.

Kate First DateWhen Kate came down the stairs, she saw Kevin looking really nervous. He was wearing jeans and a shirt on, nothing too fancy, but he looked good. Her clothes made him look relaxed, his wet forehead didn’t, but his face lit up when he saw Kate coming downstairs. He helped her get her coat on and they’ve left, with Katy watching them from the window. “Where are we going?” asked Kate. “I’m thinking of going to that place over on Baltic Street. Do you know it?”. “I’ve never been on Baltic Street.”. “Well, then you’ll see when we get there.”

Kate didn’t know what to expect, but she was excited and she liked that Kevin knew strange places on streets with names from Monopoly. The place was called “Kaef” and she was blown away when they entered. The first room was painted in a medieval style just like a church, the second one, which was a small corridor, was painted with UV paint and the whole room was luminescent, the third one had futuristic, multicolored and very detailed drawings of aliens, children, animals, birds and all sorts of creatures. The one they sat at was full of broad strokes of color on the floor, the walls, the ceiling and even the tables and the chairs. She was very impressed.

As the night went on, the two got more comfortable, and started talking about art, each other, joking and having a good time. At the end of the night, when Kevin took Kate home, she saw he was a little hesitant to make the first move, so she went for it, kissed him on the cheek and said “I can’t wait to do this again.
