It was a cold winter's night, about a month away from Christmas. The holiday spirit was with me already, much to the dismay of my family and friends. I always got excited far too early, but I had an excuse. It had been my eighteenth birthday just two weeks ago and I was planning on using my birthday present tonight. It was a telescope. Boring, right? Not to me. I was a self confessed 'hot' nerd, with brunette locks of hair with a hint of blond highlight running through them. I had deep hazel eyes that even left me hypnotized sometimes when looking into them through the mirror. Being that it was a cool night, I made sure to wrap up warm. In my winter's jacket, trapper hat, gloves, knitted jumper and tightly fitted skinny jeans. It was the perfect going-out outfit for the night; in my most humble opinion of course.
I had everything set up in the dimly lit park. It was such a gorgeous night, I just couldn't help but to feel more excited than usual. I placed my bag upon the park bench, it had snacks and drink in case I got thirsty, along with a thick blanket in case things got too cold to handle. My parent's home wasn't far away, I could head back any time, as well as asking them to pick me up if need be, I had my cell phone in my jacket pocket so that wasn't a problem; I felt more than safe. A young girl's mistake really.
I directed the telescope up towards the night sky. The stars were bright, no doubt because of the cold winter's air, bringing them out in full swing. I smiled a sweet, heavenly smile, my cheek dimples in full show now as I peered into the telescope. "Wow.." I whispered under my breath, the stars looked amazing. I was such a nerd. I continued to peer into the telescope, directing it towards the left side just a little to gaze further into the night's sky, but rustling leaves soon stopped me coming up from behind. "Hello?" I turned myself around to find someone stood out in the distance. Perhaps this wasn't such a good idea after all.
