"There's plenty of good seats in here," Jenna tells, "but I think I'd like to sit outside with you today." And that way they can at least be semi secluded and it can be quiet for their talk and also maybe the two of them could sneak in some more kisses where it wouldn't look too out of place. Most of the places outside, at least that she knows about, are park benches along paths that are public, but given that it's the weekend they're not particularly trafficked and most people are eating inside instead of out. Jenna leads him outside to a bench a little ways along a path that's nicely shaded from the setting sun by a tree and sits down there, looking up at Sean and smiling.

He sits down next to her, puts his arm around her shoulders, and leans down to give her a kiss.

It feels so very good when he touches her like that his arm is so strong and sure and then he's leaning over and kissing her again and his mouth feels so good on hers and it feels so wonderful and she kisses back happily, wiggling a little closer so she can press into him and wrap her own arm around him to give her just a little bit better leverage and wow his shoulders feel amazing when she touches them and he's so sweet and good and she really doesn't need to go back to talking to him even though she probably should she can just keep kissing him like this for as long as he wants. This is so lovely and soft and sweet and she feels like she's floating and kissing is amazing especially with cute strong caring boys like this even if he does have a weird past that's a little strange but that's not that important she can just enjoy the kiss and know and feel that he's enjoying it too and it feels so wonderful.

Mmmmmmm she's so cute and kissable and soft and bright and sweet and good.

He gives her shoulders a squeeze, and then breaks the kiss. "We should maybe, like, eat dinner," he says, smiling.

Jenna blinks a couple of times to let the flutters in her stomach calm down and let her process what he said and then she blinks a couple of times and realizes he's probably right. "Oh. Yes. Yes we should. Good point" She's clearly grinning super wide right now and looking up at him so happily and it doesn't matter if she's grinning like an idiot being close to him is so sweet and kissing him is wonderful and she wants to bounce up and down with glee and maybe she should stop staring and and grinning eat her burger. Yes. That. "I um. Where did you put it down?" And she should probably keep talking to him to make sure to get to know him which was the whole point of this date in the first place. Even if she wants to go back to kissing. Wonderful, gleeful, delightful kissing.

He kisses her on the forehead and hands her a burger.

Permalink

She blushes a little at the kiss and grins, and unwraps the burger and takes a bite, chews and swallows. Nothing special, as she'd come to expect from the cafeteria food by now, but certainly quite edible. "Thank you," she says once her mouth is empty, and smiles gently at him.

He sets the fries down in his lap and unwraps his own burger. Burgers have the convenient property that you can eat them one-handed, leaving your other arm free to cuddle with!

Permalink

They do have that property! Jenna is so very glad they do because now Sean's arm is around him and it feels very nice and she leans against his strong chest just a little bit feeling safe and held and sweet and very very happy and she takes another bite out of her burger and really this is where she hoped things would go and she's so glad to be here like this with such a cute and wonderful boy. A boy she should probably learn a little bit more about instead of just being enraptured by him like this. Probably. She can take a bite or two more first. And steal some fries. Jenna takes a few fries and munches on them, content to lean against him happily, thinking of what she should ask or talk about next.

Wow, when was the last time he ate food instead of wishing himself fed? He actually can't remember. That's a little weird. It might have been as far back as the date with Valerie. Wow, he is getting a lot of dates in his first week at college, isn't he.

He munches on his burger and squeezes Jenna's shoulders again.

"I like you," he says. "I'm really glad I met you."

Permalink

Jenna grins and blushes and does her best to keep from bouncing up and down with glee when he says it. It was probably pretty obvious from the way he acts around her but it's still so very good and sweet to heard. He likes her. He likes her! She swallows her fries and leans over and kisses him softly on his (muscularwow) shoulder. "I like you too," she says softly. "I'm so glad we met." She takes another bite out of the burger and snuggles a little closer into his chest and sighs. Other than his parents she's not really sure what to ask about and honestly she'd much rather not ask him about his family yet and instead just enjoy snuggling up with him like this. At least until she's done eating. Unless he has something else he wants to talk about, heavier things can wait.

Yeah. Companionable silence over dinner works for him.

He finishes his burger, nibbles some fries, squeezes her shoulders and (closes his eyes briefly to will himself clean because he forgot to get napkins and) kisses the top of her head.

Permalink

Jenna does her best to keep from squealing out loud when he kisses her like that, and probably mostly succeeds. Almost certainly. She wriggles a little closer and takes the last bite of her own burger and looks around for somewhere to wipe her own hands, feeling a little foolish when she doesn't find anything, and wipes them on the burger wrapper. "This is very sweet," she tells him, leaning back into him more and relaxing now that both of them are done eating. "You're really very comfy, you know?" She blushes a little at saying it, but he can't see her face so she's sure it's fine. Probably. Kissing is nice but honestly this is really nice too, just being close and being held and all snuggly together. She could probably do some more kissing though. But in a little bit. Probably.

He giggles softly. "Thanks! I try!"

Permalink

She giggles at that and snuggles into him a little more, relaxing gently. This is really very soft and comfortable and sweet and she would be perfectly happy to lie here for a while longer safe and held and all idyllic like this. But she probably has at least one more question to ask. And it seems like it would probably be important. Jenna sighs, and sits up a little. "I don't want to pry," she says, "but I kindof have to ask, because it seems like it might be important, and I do want to get to know you. And you should ask me more questions too, as many as you'd like, please! But, um. What's the deal with your parents?" She blushes a little and shrinks but stays strong and sits up a little more. "I just want to make sure I know everything relevant and they seem like they're a big factor in your life and when you talk about them I get weird feeling and and I just... want... to know more.. about that. If that's ok." 

Permalink

"Yeah, of course it's okay." Squeeze. "My parents are... super super image-conscious and we don't get along great because I'd rather be honest with everybody about the things I've screwed up or done wrong and they'd rather throw money at all their problems until no one ever speaks of them again. That's kinda the short version."

Permalink

Yeah, that makes a lot of sense, and explains some things. Jenna frowns and turns to look up at him, and gives him a hug. "That sounds pretty awful," she tells him. "I'm glad you want to be honest, and that probably didn't make for a fun childhood. Thank you for telling me." She squeezes him a little tighter. "If you want to talk about it more at all, just say so, but you don't have to if you don't want to." 

Permalink

"I... yeah. Thanks." He kisses her forehead and hugs her. "I probably will at some point. When I've figured out what the hell to say."

Permalink

She looks up at him sweetly. "That's fine," she tells him. "I don't want to push you on it at all. I just want to let you know that I can talk to you about it if you want." Jenna snuggles a little closer and puts her head on his chest and enjoys the feeling of his arms on her and hers on him and lets herself be comforting. "Is there anything else you want to know about me," she says after a moment. "I've mostly been asking about you." He really should probably at least ask her something, and maybe she could talk about something for a while and it'd make them both a little bit happier. (And then maybe they could go back to kissing. Kissing would be nice. But later.)

"Mm... what about your family? Do you get along okay?"

Permalink

Jenna grins and looks up at him. "Yeah! I'm the second child of four so there was always a lot of us but my parents do pretty well by us! They're a little uptight but they mean well. I had to do a lot of convincing to get them to let me come here instead of some school much closer by, and they're pretty worried about the fact that I'm going into acting instead of something they think is a lot more certain, but they did let me. Jeremy went to school at the local community college, I'm the first one of us that wanted to go further afield and they had a bit of trouble letting go." Jenna giggles. "But that's ok! They're really sweet, and my brother and sisters are pretty nice, now that we're older, we did tend to get at each other's throats growing up, but siblings tend to do that! You'd probably like them! Though I should probably not tell them quite yet that I kissed a boy, my mother would probably freak out and think it was one of her horror stories coming true about bad boys leading poor innocent me astray." She grins a little wider. "But you're not going to lead me astray, are you? Or at least not much more than I want to be?" She sticks her tongue out at him, giggles, and then blushes. A little brazen of her but it's nice to be a little bit more comfortable around him, so she goes with it. Ok, maybe a lot brazen. She blushes a little deeper. "Anyways, yeah, I'm pretty close. I could tell you more about them if you want to hear?" 

Permalink

"How far astray do you want to be led?" he asks, grinning and squeezing her shoulders. Then he laughs a little. "Or you could talk about your family some more, that works too."

Permalink

Jenna blushes a very deep crimson and her ears burn and she turns away. Nope, that was definitely too brazen whoops even if it made her stomach do happy flipflops and her heart flutter and she really want to kiss him again but maybe she could talk about her family a little bit more. Yes. That. "Um, well, my dad works as a manager in a furniture store, and he's really sweet and fun and takes us to plays and baseball games and things on a whim. Mom generally stays home and takes care of all of us and keeps house though she does do a bunch of volunteering for the PTA or the church sometimes. She's generally the stricter of the two by far. Jeremy's really smart and studying to be a doctor! He's taking pre-med. We're all really proud of him! He generally doesn't interact with the rest of us much these days though, he's really busy studying a lot, but he would help me with my homework growing up. Daisy is really quiet and shut in these days and I honestly don't know what she's into, she spends a lot of time shut in her room talking to her friends but when we were younger she and I got along pretty well. I hope she's doing ok. And Lacey is nine and still really adorable even if she can get moody and angry sometimes when she doesn't get her way. But most of the time she's really adorable and sweet!" She grins. "That's all of them! They were loud and hard to get along with sometimes but I do kindof miss them. But I'm here and somewhere new and I'm learning new things and it's great!" 

Permalink

"Awww that sounds really sweet. You're so happy when you talk about them, it's great. I'm glad you have a good family." He hugs her a little closer for a moment.

Permalink

She squeezes him back, still grinning. "They're pretty great! They're not perfect but they're still good people."
