APRIL MARATHON: PROMPT ONE
For the first time in what felt like forever, things were starting to look up for Mackenzie, so she’d decided that maybe it was time to upgrade her apartment for something a little bigger and nicer and maybe even closer to town. She’d been living on the outskirts of town ever since she’d arrived back in Hartsville almost eight months earlier and although her apartment was nice, it was a little too small for the red head’s liking, so after getting in touch with the real estate agent, she’d set up a meeting with Aubrey. She’d never actually met the woman before, but she had heard great things about her and was hoping that maybe she could help her find the house of her dreams; one that was a lot bigger than her current apartment and a home that she would be happy to grow old in!
After getting herself ready, she grabbed her purse to head out of her apartment so that she could go and meet the other woman; having arranged to meet her at one of the properties just outside of town. Wrapping her hand around the doorknob, she pulled it open though was greeted by her ex girlfriend, Avery. She wasn’t exactly sure what they were now - they weren’t together, but there were times that they didn’t exactly feel broken up either. Running her tongue along the inside of her mouth, she swallowed the lump that had formed in her throat and offered the blonde a small smile “Ave, what’s up?” Kenzie questioned, biting down on the corner of her mouth for a brief moment. “Stop that. You know I hate it when you do that.” Kenzie tried to play coy and act like she had no idea what Avery was talking about, but she knew it was the lip biting and that caused Kenzie to do it again, sucking her lower lip between her teeth as a small smirk tugged at her lips. “You’re annoying,” Avery smirked, grabbing Kenzie’s arm and pulling her from the apartment. “But you’re ready, so let’s go. I have a surprise for you.” Kenzie knew that she should have declined or told the blonde that she was busy but this was Avery she was talking about. This was the girl that she was in love with and had been trying to win back ever since she’d arrived in town. “Okay, give me a second.” Avery nodded and let Kenzie’s arm go so the redhead could close and lock her door before quickly sending Aubrey a text to try and reschedule the appointment. She hoped that she wouldn’t mind and hated messing her around, but this was important - more important than finding her dream home, or at least as far as Kenzie was concerned. “Okay, I’m all yours. So where are we going?” she asked, shoving her phone into her pocket as she turned her attention to the other female and followed her down the stairs. “The Urban Garden. But I’m not telling you why. You’ll just have to wait and see.”
