Her words caused his eyes to well up as the sweeping wave of happiness overloaded his senses. Out of nowhere Robert pulled her in tight and kissed her with all the love that he had for her. The two continued to kiss until the sound of an opening door in the distance disturbed them.
“Oh shit!” While Rob had tried to keep the words to a whisper it was more like a muffled shout. “Follow me.”
Once again Robert was pulling Ara along but this time their fingers locked tightly together. As the young man looked for somewhere they could hide he was distracted by Ara’s giggling. “I’m glad you find this so funny. We’re going to have to have a serious conversation about your behaviour later.” Ara playfully slapped the metalhead on the backside, giving him a suggestive wink. There was no way Robert could stop the wide grin stretching across his face.
The pair soon found themselves at the back of the gym, distant footsteps slowly getting closer. Rob hurried across the gym to the far doors leaving Ara by the way they had came in. With both hands he tried to push the double doors open, presumably to freedom. Unfortunately for him they were firmly locked. He turned to see Ara walking across the gym without a care in the world. While the guy was panicking the lady was as carefree as could be.
The only other option was a nearby storage cupboard where the gymnastics teams mats were stored. Hurriedly Rob twisted the handle and a satisfying click filled his ears. He quickly pulled Ara in and closed the door firmly behind themselves. He pressed his back up against it and felt his heart skip a beat as he heard the door at the far end of the gym open.
Heavy footsteps, presumably security, could be heard walking the towards them. As the footsteps grew closer Rob could feel Ara get closer and closer to his body. As soon as the footsteps were outside the room they were hiding in their chests were touching. He felt Ara’s hands around the nape of his neck, pulling his head down towards her. Soon enough they were kissing once more. The sound of the locked double doors rattling soon followed and the footsteps began to fade away into the distance, back towards where they had come from.
Robert and Ara separated. As his eyes began to adjust to the darkness he could make out Ara’s mischievous smile. Her hands soon had a firm grip of his shirt and with a determined strength she dragged Robert over to a nearby pile of gym mats. She threw him down onto them before taking a seat on his lap facing him. Rob tried to speak, only managing a few syllables before Ara placed her finger over his mouth.
“You’ve said more than enough tonight Robbie…” Ara leant down and began to kiss Rob once more.
In that room they stayed until the music of the dance had long since ended.
