Cori just chuckled as Travis explained why the were supposedly matching today. [b “I honestly didn’t notice until you pointed it out, Momma.”] she said again.
Of course, she and Travis were pushed together by his mother for pictures, though Cori wasn’t complaining. [b “You know we aren’t going to be able to pull this off for much longer. I wasn’t even thinking about them asking why we were matching... I’m sorry.”] she whispered. [b “I wasn’t thinking, Travis.”]
His mother was still wanting pictures, but Travis had to get lined up, and they needs to find seats so they could all sit together. [b “I’m going to walk Travis up to the line up. Save me a seat, Momma! I’ll be right back.”] she tucked her arm through Travis’ and pulled him away before their parents could say anything.
Having to act as friends was hell. They had been free the last few days to be the couple that they were.. But now they had to hide that because their families didn't know. Well scratch that..everyone but his nosey cousin didn't know. And he smiled to their parents when they walked up.
[b "Mornin'."] The man said but froze at their mothers began over the matching. Seemed he and Cors didn't think that part of it out at all. [b "It's an easy colour and can be found easy. I mean you found us intstantly. The matching just kinda happened."] He lied with a shrug.
His mother and hers both gave them a look. But the time was running short and his momma WANTED the pictures. So she was herding them and posing them. Trav knew this wasn't over and he and Cori would be getting an earful later.
[b “It’s definitely safe to say that I have gotten out of my routine of early morning since I’ve been back in Montana.”] she groaned as the alarm clock went off. [b “Why oh why do they schedule Graduations at Noon instead of at night like high school.”]
After Travis helped her down from the Jeep, she almost reached for his hand, but caught herself as she remembered that they were about to meet both of their parents. [b “Whoops.”] she muttered. [b “And now we act as friends.”] She waved when she seen their families.
[b “Hi Momma!”] she said [b “Mrs. Chamberlin.”] She looked up to Travis when their mothers immediately asked why they were matching.. She definitely did not think this through at all. [b “Mere coincidence.... I didn’t even notice! Did you, Travis?”]
Mrs. Chamberlin wasted no time in herding everyone together and posing them for pictures.
The night before graduation, he and Cori opted for a night in. Pizza, movies, and cuddling. Perhaps many would call that "child's stuff"..but to him it was amazing. It made him feel right at home and everything was finally working out. They were where they were meant to be and he couldn't have been happier
In the morning, the man groaned when the alarm went off. It was godawful early but with his momma that was to be expected. She was a country girl through and through. Because he had been away for awhile, Trav forgot what it was to be up early. But then, he couldn't blame his momma either. At least not today. She wanted lots and lots of pictures, so she would get them. Besides, he wanted them for him and Cors too.
Soon, Travis was being helped with his tie and smiled. [b "I like hearing it Cors. From you it means the world. And thanks..but you are always beautiful."] He whispered as he kissed her.
It wasn't long before they were driving to the campus and he was helping her from the jeep and to find their families. When they did, both their mommas were looking at the way they were dressed with raised brows. "Matching?" They asked, clearly wanting to hear this one
That night they really didn’t do anything, they ordered pizza, watched movies, and cuddled a lot. Everything seemed like it was finally falling into place with their relationship and lives, and she couldn’t have been more content.
The next day, they were up early getting ready for Travis’ Graduation ceremony. They were meeting his family on campus early, because of course his Momma wanted to take a bunch of pictures, but the girl wasn’t complaining. She was happy about it in fact, this was something to celebrate and she wanted pictures for memories!
[b “I know I’ve told you so much that you probably get tired of hearing it, but I’m so proud of you, Travis.”] she said as she helped fix his tie. [b “And you look so handsome if I have to say so myself.”]
He was going to miss the alone time and their mini vacation too. The only up side to it was the ceremony was almost over and he was almost graduated. And when she had said something about them needing an excuse to leave again for another mini vacation, a small smirk came to his lips. [b "You know my cousin has that little cabin still. We could always say he needed our help in cleaning it up and fixing it up. Wouldn't be a full out lie because he is horrible with maintaining his property. But we'd also be able to stay there. Walk the trail or whatever we wanted."] His mind seemed to be racing through the idea and he hoped that maybe it would be okay with her.
Brown eyes went to the button up she held up. For being pink it didn't look THAT bad. So slowly he nodded. [b "But only cause I love you, darlin' and want to see that beautiful smile of yours."] He said and pulled her into a gentle kiss. What could he say? He was crazy about this woman and she had him pretty much putty in her hands.
Cori smiled softly as she listened to him. [b “Well. Tomorrow is your ceremony, and then we’re going out to eat with everyone, and then we have two whole days, just me and you.”] she said [b “I’m kind of sad that our mini vacation is almost over.. I’ve really enjoyed it just being us.”] she told him. [b “Maybe we can take another mini trip before summer is over.. We just have to figure out an excuse to tell our parents.”]
[b “So will you wear the button up?”] she asked as she held it up and showed it to him once they were back in their hotel room. [b “Babe. You will look so handsome in this, with your khakis and those brown boots.”] she said.
[b "Not long at all, darlin'. I pretty much just had five minutes and was talking to a couple of the guys before I happened to get your text."] He said with a chuckle when she nodded immediately to his offer of the switch. The man knew he was more used to it as he had come to school here and lived since after high school. It had been hell at first but he got used to it.
The two of them switched seats he listened to her tell him about her day. So much more fun and interesting than his and he envied that. [b "Wish I could have come with. I hate these ceremony practices and everything. Takes too much time away from you."] Travis muttered.
When they got back to their hotel room, Travis had her bags and she was pulling a dress out. [b "Looks beautiful."] He said with a smile and again made a face at the pink. Oh she would get him into it. But ONLY because he loved her
Cori grinned as pulled up and seen Travis waiting on her. [b “Hi babe! I hope you haven’t been waiting on me long!”] she said. She grinned when he kissed her cheek and she simply nodded. [b “Yes please. You’re way more familiar with this place than I am.”] she admitted.
She traded places with him and then went on to explain how her day was. [b “It was fun! I went to the mall, found a few new outfits for us both and then I went and got my nails done.”] she said [b “I had a few hours to waste.”]
Once they got back to the hotel, she pulled out her dress from the bags. [b “I think this is what I’m going to wear to your ceremony, and then I found a soft pink button up that matches... I think it would look so good with your khakis and boots.”]
When he saw the repsonse back to hia pink comment, Travis chuckled and shook his head. He knew her and he knew she was thinking pink. But he would humour her with it. After all, the last time he worse something she wanted waa high school. This couldn't really be THAT bad, right?
He was standing with a couple of the other guys when Cori's next text came. And he smiled, telling them 'good-bye' and then went to meet Cori. [b "Hey darlin'. Did you have a good day?"] He asked as got into the Jeep.
The man kissed her cheek. [b "Want to switch out? I know you hate the driving around here."]
Cori grinned as she looked down at her phone. Of course he wouldn’t want to wear pink, but it would match her dress so perfectly! [i “Okay. Well. Just keep an open mind when I show you what I bought today!”] she quickly replied before she got out of the parking lot [i “I love you babe.”]
It wasn’t a long drive back to Travis’ campus, but there was a bunch of one way streets, which just made her nervous. And if she was being honest, she hadn’t really drove a lot since she had been back in Montana, because Travis was always coming to get her, or riding over on his horse like in high school. If someone could be out of practice with driving, she was it.
[i “I’m outside where I dropped you off!”] she texted Travis when she was on Canpus.
The man was more than happy for the next few days. They mwant being on the move and making it more possible to forget Veronica and her antics. He was glad Cors didn't ask anything either. He was hers and she had nothing to worry about. Though he would admit he also hated the few days as well. Practice for the ceremony was long and often kept him away from Cori. But at least she seemed to be having fun
[b [i 'You know pink isn't for me. But if you have something in mind, then I'm all ears for it baby girl. Besides I don't have a clue what I am even going to wear. So want to save me?']] He texted. And he meant it too. He had NO idea and she was the more fashionable of the pair.
[b [i 'I love you and see you soon.']] Travis added after.
As excited as he was for the next day, Trav was still nervous as hell
The next for days were quite a wirlwind. Travis had graduation ceremony practice, a few times actually. Law School Graduations turned out to be a lot different than her own University ceremony. Two different schools though, is what she told herself.
They hadn't really spoke about that night anymore. She was still curious just as to why Verionica would think that she still had some hold on Travis, but she tried her to best to shake it out of her head. Travis was her's now, and nothing was going to change that.
While he was off with practice, she had the keys to the Jeep, so she went exploring. Well, shopping. She found a few outfits for her, and some for Travis. She had hoped that he had no clue what he would be wearing to his graduation ceremony yet. She had found a shirt that would match her dress! [i "You're not against wearing pink are you?"] she texted him as she was walking back out to the jeep. [i "Oh. And I'm on my way!"]
His Graduation ceremony was the next day, and she was so excited for him!
He didn't know what he was expecting. But truth be told, Cori as always happened to surprise him. She was calm about it and even understood. [b "Wasn't silly darkin'.. I led you into that. Should have told you about her before this happened. So for that.. I'm sorry."] Travos said quietly. And he really was.
The moment her head was on his shoulder, the man visibly relaxed. Only she could calm him down in such a way. And gently, Travis' heas rested on hers. [b "I love you too, Cori."] He whispered, his hand moving into hers.
Not long after they sat, a waitress had come over with menus and asked what she could get them to drink
Cori smiled softly as Travis slide into the booth beside her. [b "You okay?"] she asked. She could sense that he was a little over the edge right now. [b "Whatever that was... Don't worry about it. She's obviously just pissed because you brought me here, instead of coming here to meet up with her."]
She nodded as she listened to Travis finally speak about the redhead. [b "Travis, it's really okay. It was stupid of me to think that there hadn't been anyone else since me. Travis."] she told him [b "It's really okay.."]
She smiled weakly and scooted closer to him, resting her head on his shoulder. [b "I love you."]
