When Brick asks Blossom over to study, she accidentally comes across a list of thing to do, but everything on the list has something to do with her. What will she do?

Part Two: The Date

The next day passed quickly, and Blossom couldn't wait until Saturday night. She looked on Brick's list and knew she had to wear something fancy. She looked into her closet and picked out a pretty pink dress. It had skinny straps and just the right amount of cleavage and only went down to her knees. She giggled to herself and finished brushing her hair. She put it in a slight curl and pinned in up at the sides with two butterfly clips.

She put on her pink pearl pumps and flew downstairs just as the doorbell rang. She opened the door and was greeted by her date.

"Hi," she said. "You're early."

"Well, you look great," he said and came in. She saw that he was wearing a dress suit and brought her some candy and flowers. "These are for you."

"I see," she said and took them. "It was # 2 on the list."

"Are you going to check it off the list?" he asked.

She put the candy down and looked into his eyes. "Why not?" she said. "I have to make sure you do everything."

She slowly walked into the kitchen to get a vase to fill with water. She put the vase on the kitchen table and walked back into the living room.

"So are you ready to go?" he asked.

"Sure," she said. "Just one minute." She picked up the box of candy and put it in her purse. "Okay, let's go."

He led her outside where there was a limo waiting. Blossom gasped. "Oh, Brick, this is too extravagant. How can you afford this?"

"Don't worry about it," he said. "I know the driver. He owes me a favor, so he's driving us for free."

"Well, okay," Blossom said as he helped her into the vehicle. He sat next to her in the limo. As they drove off, she turned to him and asked, "Where are we going?"

"Don't you know?" he asked. "Just look at the list." She pulled it out of her purse and looked at #3. Take Blossom to a nice restaurant.

"And that's exactly what I'm doing," he said.

"But which one?" she asked.

"That's a surprise," he said and put his arm around her. "Now, just sit back and enjoy the ride."

She giggled and sat back with his arm still around her. She felt so warm and protected in is arms. She closed her eyes and listened to the soft music that was coming out of the back speakers.

They finally stopped in front of one of the nicest restaurants in town. Willard's was definitely five star and as Blossom opened her eyes, she was left speechless.

"Brick, this is the most expensive restaurant in town. How...?"

"Like I said, don't worry about it," he said, silencing her. "Everything's covered." He opened the door to the limo and helped her out. "Tonight you're my princess, okay?"

"Well, okay," she said as he escorted her into the restaurant. Her face lit up when she saw the place. It was like a palace. She really did feel like a princess. There were beautiful chandeliers hanging from the ceiling and carpeting of an oriental design with a dominant red and gold design. There were even red and gold table clothes to match the carpeting.

The hostess greeted them with a smile. "Welcome." she said. "Do you have a reservation?"

"Yes," Brick said. "Jojo, for two."

The hostess looked in her book. "Oh, yes, here we are. Right this way." She led then to their table where a young gentleman in a tuxedo greeted them."

"Good evening," he said bowing and handed them both menus.

Blossom took the menu. "Wow! Everything looks so good," she said. "But..."

"But what?" Brick asked. "Don't you see anything you like?"

"Well, sure I do, but there's no prices on anything."

He laughed a little, which led Blossom to give him a stern look. "Blossom, the ladies menu isn't supposed to. Just order anything you want."

"Are you sure?" Blossom asked.

"Of course," he said, smiling at her. "This is my night to spoil you, and like I said before, I have it covered."

"Alright," she said. "She looked over the menu one more time before deciding what to order."

The waiter came back over and looked from Blossom to Brick. "Are we ready?"

"Blossom?"

"Yes, I think I'll have the kingsington Chicken."

"And you sir," the waiter said.

"The beef wellington, please," Brick said.

When the waiter left Brick looked over at Blossom. "So, are you sorry you came?"

"No," she said, taking a sip of her water. "Why would you think that?"

"I just hope I didn't push you into going out with me. I've wanted to ask you for so long, but..."

"But what?" Blossom asked.

"I was scared to," he admitted. "I just never thought a girl you would want some ex-con like me."

"Brick, that was years ago, and you were just a kid. Besides, we're friends now, right?"

"Yeah," he said and looked deep into her eyes.

She was starting to get nervous. Then their dinner came. Blossom hadn't eaten since breakfast, and she was starving. Even still, she was determined to conduct herself like a lady. She took small bits and noticed that Brick was staring at her the entire time.

He barely touched his food, to entranced by the girl sitting across from him. "What?" she asked. "Why do you keep staring at him?"

"Because you're so beautiful," Brick said which made her blush. "So, do you like this place."

"I love it," Blossom said, taking another look around. "It's beautiful."

"I thought you would order the lobster," he said, jokingly.

"Oh, way," Blossom said giggling. "Not after we battled that evil lobster monster years ago. I vowed never to touch the stuff."

"I must have missed that," he said, as they both finished their meal.

"So are you ready for dessert?" Brick asked her. "This place has the best chocolate mousse."

"Sounds delicious," Blossom said, her eyes getting really big.

The waiter came back over and Brick ordered the dessert. As they waited for it, they talked so more. Brick did feel a little awkward. He didn't know why. He and Blossom had hung out many times. Why was this time different?

"Brick, are you alright?" Blossom asked, seeing the sweat on his face.

"I'm great," he said. Finally the dessert came.

"Oh, wow, this looks great," Blossom said, with a big smile on her face. She took a bite and gave a sigh of satisfaction.

Brick ate his dessert fast. He felt the need to get out of there. "So are you ready to go?" he asked her.

"Sure," she said. "Where are we off to next?"

"Just some special place I want to show you," he said. "Any objections?"

"No," Blossom said. "Lead the way."

He quickly paid the check and rose to his feet and led her out of the restaurant. They got back into the limo, and he secretly gave the driver instructions on where to go.

They soon stopped and Blossom found that they were in a secluded part of beach. "Here we are," he said.

She looked around as he helped her out of the limo. He led her up a small trail to a clearing, where there was a cliff. "So, why here?" she asked.

"This is the place I come to think," he said. "You're the first girl I ever brought here. I always wanted to share it with you."

She looked out on the water. It was breathtaking. "This is so beautiful," she said. He looked deep into her eyes and brought his lips close to hers, but he stopped. "What's wrong?"

"I really want to kiss you, but I'm not sure if I should."

"Why not?" she asked.

"Because, I don't want to ruin our friendship," he said. "You're very special to me, Blossom. I just don't..."

He didn't have the chance to continued, because Blossom crashed her lips down on his. The whole thing left him stunned, and he just looked on her in shocked once the kiss was over.

"Something wrong?" she asked.

"No," he said, putting his hands around her waist. She was so close he could feel her breath. Her arms were around him as his lips touched hers. He opened his mouth slightly as she did hers, drinking in her flavor. Her eyes were closed, and she felt so light in his arms. He never wanted to let go of her.

When they finally broke apart, he placed his hands on either side of her face. "Wow!" was all he could say. "That was... Wow!"

"I think so, too," she said. "So, that takes care of #3." She reached into her purse and grabbed the list. She picked up her pen and checked it off.

"Are you keeping score or something?" he asked her.

"No, not really," she said, giggling. "Now, what about #4?"

"Blossom!" he shouted and tried to take the list from her. "I don't think..."

"That's right," she said and put the list back in her purse. "Don't think."

"But this isn't the best place," he said.

"Then let's go somewhere else," she said. "Unless you don't want to."

"No, I do, but only if you do," he said.

"I do," she said and took his hand. "So, let's go."
