Bella nodded thoughtfully as he answered, agreeing with him 100% on the second one. If she could go anywhere as a vacation, she would definitely want to go to New Zealand. It was so beautiful there, with all of the mountains and forests; It would be like heaven to her.

"I definitely agree with your second one," Bella said, looking over at the calm waters of the lake before looking back over at him.

"That's good, I'd feel like an idiot if I were the only one," he said wriggling his eyebrows to lighten the serious mood

He wasn't one for serious moods, he'd rather be quiet or say something to get a comic effect. This of course got him in trouble, especially at school. In seventh grade one time his teacher had a bald spot, and one day gave him a large sticker because he'd behaved himself all day. Of course it happened to be the size of the man's bald spot and he'd immediately turned around and handed it to him telling him that it would work just like a toupe, just stickier.

Bella let out a small laugh at his comment, dark eyes shining with joy. "You're absolutely right," she said, nodding her head slightly, the remnants of the smile still visible upon her face. She sat up and took her towel out from under her, flipping her head over and towel-drying her hair for a few seconds. Once she was done, she flipped her head back over and turned so she was sitting indian-style, facing Matt. Her damp hair fell in wild waves over her shoulders and her eyes danced playfully, but she couldn't understand why she felt this way.

Matt simply shook his hair out as a dog and sat up. His own straight hair messy and tangled looking, though in all honesty he rarely brushed his shaggy brown hair. Brown hued eyes looked over at her and a small smile played on to his lips at the expression in her eyes. He recognized that look all to well, and it merely brought a smile to his lips. He didn't say a word simply studied the waves that fell freely around her shoulders.

Bella looked around the grounds, noticing that more and more students seemed to be appearing. Draping her towel around her shoulders to keep the sun from burning her ivory skin even more than it already had, Bella wondered silently what time it was. "I wonder how much time we have before our lesson..." she thought to herself before turning back to Matt. "How much longer do you think we have until our lesson?" she asked, smiling when she saw his messy hair.

Matt glanced up from the studying of the planks underneath him when she inquired about their lesson. He estimated they only had about a half hour left. Cutting it close, as they still had to go change, and prepare the horses for a cross-country lesson. Scrambling up to his feet he offered a hand with a smile.

"About a half hour," he said though he was guessing

ooc Icky. Sorry =[.

"Whoa. We should definitely get moving, then." Bella said with a small laugh, taking his hand to pull herself up. She grabbed her towel from the dock and began walking to the end where it met the sandy beach, stopping to wait for Matt.

OOC: Mine too...

Matt followed her his own towel tossed carelessly around his shoulders. Lacing his fingers through her own he walked side by side with her until they reached the dorms. Releasing her hand he smiled in a temporary good-bye and headed for his room. The pool deck feeling coarse under his bare feet. Going in to the dorm building he ignored the chattering that entered his ears upon entrance and headed to his room. The roommate that shared the room with him was no where to be seen so Matt locked the door behind him.

Tossing the navy towel in to the dirty clothes hamper he had situated next to his dresser. Making his way to the third drawer down he pulled out a simple pair of properly fitting jeans and a deep brown plain T-shirt. It was simple, but for cross-country lessons he rarely dressed in anything fancier. Tugging on a pair of thick white socks he then placed a pair of dark brown leather riding boots, to lazy to find his actual jumping boots. Heading back down the steps he walked out the door that led outside and headed slowly to the barn kicking a rock along the path.

Bella gave him a small smile and a squeeze of his hand as a temporary goodbye as they neared the dorms, then she turned up the staircase that would lead her to her room. Upon entering it, she tossed her towel onto the floor at the foot of her bed and walked over to her dresser. She pulled out a pair of beige breeches and a hunter green fitted shirt and quickly changed clothes, tossing her slightly damp bathing suit on top of her towel. She put on a pair of black paddock boots along with black leather half chaps and ran a brush through her damp hair before walking out the door.

After walking outside, Bella sighted Matt just ahead of her on the path. A small smile appearing on her face, she slowly walked up behind him and slid her arms around his waist from behind him, hoping not to scare him. Not that she had planned on it; She wasn't exactly the sneakiest person around, and she was aware of that.

ooc I haven?t the faintest clue. She just stopped posting? I don?t really know =[. Though you?re right about it being more interesting with more characters.

Matt turned around as he felt an arm wrap around his waist. It was more out of surprise then actually being scared. A grin found it?s way to his features lighting up his rich brown colored eyes as he looked down at her. With the turning and grinning he had ceased his forwards step. Wrapping his own long arms around her slender waist he kept the grin on his face not allowing her to move.

Swishing the damp hair out of his face with a flick of his neck he continued to look down at her. Not in a demeaning way, but rather in an adoring way. The girl he held within his arms he felt feelings for that he had never felt before, and that kind of scared him. Though the way he was scared was in a good way and didn?t make him want to push it away, but rather encourage the vague emotion. Bringing his lips to hers he kissed her quickly before returning his head to where it had previously been and his neck crooked downwards so he was looking down at her, not allowing her to go anywhere. The path was wide enough even though the were standing directly in the middle for people to pass on either side.

Bella smiled softly as he held her, sighing relaxedly as she melted into his embrace. She seemed to fit there perfectly; It was like she was meant to be there. She was surprised by the sudden kiss, and she let a small chuckle escape her lips when he had moved his head away. She turned her neck and looked up at his face, her dark eyes meeting his. Her heart was beating a million times a minute, and she was almost sure that he could hear it if he couldn't already feel it through her shirt. This feeling was so strange to her; She had never felt it before, but she loved every second of it. "You gonna let me go?" she asked in a playful tone when she noticed his tight grip on her, her smile not leaving her face for a second.

Matt studied her briefly an ever-present grin on his face. A lightness was in his eyes that hadn't been there the previous morning. It was odd to think that they'd only met the previous day and yet it felt as though it had been months since their trail ride the previous day. At her comment her shook his head slightly a grin on his face. He was joking around, something he normally did, but not really in a new setting.

"Never," he said with a small chuckle

He kept his hands locked together on the base of her back. His neck bent slightly to look at the girl in his arms. A slight shiver of emotions swirled together erupted in his stomach though he shoved them back down. Everything in his heart was telling him to go on with this relationship and his head was flickering doubt in to his mind. Shoving the doubt from his mind he grinned down at her.

OOC: Sorry I haven't been on in forever; I've been super busy...I don't know how much longer I can keep this up [Me Cry]

BIC: Bella smiled as she looked up at Matt, a bright twinkle in her dark eyes. She grinned even wider, if that was possible, when she heard that he was never going to let her go. She liked that idea very much indeed.

"I like the sound of that, but we've only got about ten minutes until our lesson." Bella said with a light smile, tossing her dark locks from her face as they blew in the light breeze. She gave Matt a small kiss on the lips and began moving both of their bodies backwards on the sidewalk towards the barn, even though she was still in his tight embrace.

ooc It's fine =]

A plesant grin was left on his face at her kiss. Matt allowed himself to be pushed backwards by Bella and laughed lightly. Releasing his hold he kept his arm around her waist and walked with her the rest of the way to the barn. Releasing her upon entering he headed to the back of the building and to Dawson's stall.

Grabbing the lead line on the side of the stall door he clipped it to the gelding's halter and then unlatched the door and led him through. While that was normally frowned upon it really wasn't that bad to do. Hooking him to the cross-ties he headed to the tackroom and began a quick tack-up on the gelding.

Once this was completed he fed the horse a mint and watched him with interest as the gelding munched upon the red peppermint. Putting on his navy cross-country vest he attached it securely, placed his helmet on to his cranium, and slipped his black gloves over his fingers. A whip was tucked in his back pocket as he adjusted the geldings martingale.

Bella's smile remained on her face as they walked down to the barn, and they parted when upon reaching the immaculate stable. Bella turned and entered Pandora's stall, grabbing her royal blue halter in the process. She led the mare from the stall and placed her in the crossties, giving her dark muzzle a soft kiss before heading into the tack room to get her stuff.

Bella groomed her quickly and gently placed her saddle pad on Pandora's back, followed shortly by her saddle and girth. She went back into the tackroom and slipped on her eventing vest and her black GPA helmet before going back to her horse, bridle in hand.

Leading the gelding down the aisle to exit the barn he left the whip in his pocket, and that was where it would sit until he was actually at the course. The black gelding normally didn't need the slightest encouragement to move fowards, but going over jumps he could get a tad lazy. Matt's helmet hung unclipped on top of his head. Back home he rarely wore a helmet, which was of course frowned upon, but unlike here, no one could really enforce the helmet law. As soon as he was outside he mounted the solid horse. The gelding didn't move an inch though was eager to be off.

Deciding that it would be the right thing to do he waited for Bella. Matt turned the gelding in wide, smooth circles to keep him interested. His heels sank deep in to the metal stirrups and his seat was steady, yet soft. The new reins churned under his skilled hands and the tension was a nice, comfortable tension for both horse and rider.

Bella slid Pandora's halter from her face and buckled the crownpiece around her neck, just like she had been taught so many years ago to do. The mare willingly accepted the bit and Bella skillfully secured the leather buckles quickly and precisely. She ran her stirrups down and tightened the girth once more before leading Pandora to the mounting block.

Bella swang lightly into the saddle and adjusted herself in the seat, her heels sinking down in the stirrups as she adjusted the braided leather reins through her fingers. She kept a light feel on the mare's mouth as she clucked her forwards towards Matt and Dawson.
