((Samuel Howard continued from TROUBLE))

Samuel loved weekends. It gave him two whole days to kick back, relax, and push off school and other stressors. Samuel usually spent these days writing, binge watching Investigation Discovery or scrolling through Tumblr. This routine was only rarely interrupted by his relatives, but also when, under certain circumstances, he could invite a special someone over.

The latter opportunity presented itself yesterday evening. His father told him he'd be out on errands, and Nanna would be spending the day visiting an old friend. This gave Samuel the whole house to himself for several hours.

And what did Samuel do with all this free time?

Invite his girlfriend over, of course.

Samuel texted Penelope and asked her to come over around noon. This gave him about an hour before she'd arrive.

Enough time to prepare a little treat.

He peered into the oven, checking the sugar cookies for the umpteenth time. They hadn't turned golden brown just yet. Samuel sighed and leaned on the counter, taking out his phone to scroll through Tumblr. He thought of what they'd do together. When Penelope was over, they always just hung out. They'd watch a movie or play video games, or just snuggle. It was Samuel's typical lazy day, except with Penelope. He was looking forward to a carefree day spent with her.

His only worry was that the cookies wouldn't be ready when she'd arrive.

Samuel had mixed feelings when he heard the knock on the door. On the downside, it meant that the cookies weren't ready in time. But on the upside, it meant Penelope was here. The positive outweighed the negative here.

He made his way to the front door and swung it open. "Penny!" He exclaimed, pulling her into a tight hug. Samuel was a huge sucker for physical intimacy. He loved to give Penelope gifts, but he mostly showed love through hugs and kisses. The fact that she loved this sort of stuff too made it even better.

He held her for a moment and released. "How've you been doing honey?"

"Er, yeah," Samuel replied, scratching the back of his head. "I was hoping I could surprise you with them when you got here, but they're not ready yet."

He followed Penelope into the living room, when she asked for soda. "We should have some," Samuel said, heading into the kitchen. "Do you want any soda in particular?" He opened the fridge and called back, "We've got Coke and Dr. Pepper!"

While waiting for her answer, he leaned over and peered into the oven. They weren't ready now, but they would be soon.

"Got it!" He called back, grabbing a can of Dr. Pepper and bumping the fridge closed with his hip. He placed it on the counter and checked the oven again. This time, they were golden brown.

Perfect.

He put on a pair of oven mitts and pulled out the tray, setting it on the table to cool off. Samuel decided to wait for the cookies to cool before taking it all to Penelope. He hated making her wait, but it would save time. As he idled, thoughts of the upcoming dance drifted into his mind.

Samuel wasn't the sort of person to attend school socials, mostly because he didn't have anyone to go with. He'd be more inclined to go to dances if he had a date, or at least a group of friends to hang out with. Unfortunately, he didn't have many close friends, and for most of high school he was single.

Until now, of course.

Samuel was considering going, though the decision was out of his hands: Sadie Hawkins was a girls-ask-boys event, and it was entirely up to Penelope. Samuel wouldn't think much if she didn't ask, but he'd say yes if she did. He'd be willing to do most anything if that girl was involved.

After they'd cooled, he put them on a plate and carried the snack into the living room. "Bon appetit," he grinned, handing her the Dr. Pepper as he sat down. Samuel held the plate between them, and used his free hand to grab the remote. "You up for some TV?"

God, she was still adorable when she ate. Samuel turned the television on to the local news, which he didn’t normally watch. But Penelope had just snuggled up against him, and he didn’t want to disturb her. Instead, he wrapped his arm around Penelope's shoulder, leaning his head against hers. They didn’t need to speak - in times like this, they just lazed around and enjoyed each other’s company.

Samuel loved it when this happened.

Penelope shifted and gave him a look. She started to ask a question, but Samuel knew what was coming. He accepted the kiss gladly, closing his eyes to savor the moment. She broke off, and she whispered in his ear.

Penelope asked him to the dance.

Samuel paused, and she resumed the kiss, leaning against him. Samuel instinctively leaned back, reclining until the two were lying on the couch. He wrapped his arms around her and closed his eyes for a moment. He paused, feeling her on top of him, before replying.

“Yes,” He replied, hugging her to his chest and resting his chin on her head. “Of course I would.”
