Where will you be my darling? Where will you be when the dark is rising?

Aye, right. So I went out with Sharon on Monday.
But I haven't explained why I took her car back home on Sunday. Lol. Well here's what happened. After our pool match and chilling out till 3am, I asked how I was going home since I had no car that day. Normally Joseph would drive me back but Sharon came up with an different idea. She was extremely sleepy and tired so she suggested that I take her car, drive her back home, and drive the car back to my own home. The next morning I'd drive over to her place, drive myself to work, and then she'd take the car and do whatever she wanted, since she was taking the day off. Lol, I'll admit it was an odd suggestion but it suited everyone's needs perfectly. Plus I could drive in the morning, skipping the bus for one day, which was fine by me in every way!
So I dropped her to her place. When I was driving back, a huge storm raged, forcing me to drive extremely slow. When I reached Cheras, the storm was even worse. I myself was tired, and the storm didn't look like it was ceasing soon. She had ingeniously left her iPad in the car, and I had some stuff I needed to keep dry. With no umbrella in the car I took off my shirt, wrapped the stuff and ran back to my house. In those few seconds I was thoroughly soaked, although the belongings were dry. Whew.
The next morning it was still raining. I drove to her place early in the morning, and we had that slightly tired, slow kinda morning conversation. Her place is really near my office, so it was convenient. I dropped myself off and she went off. In the afternoon she SMSed me, emo-ing about certain plans gone bad. Lmao, after cheering her up I asked whether she had any plans. She didn't, and suggested we go watch a movie. I said sure, so long she was aware I had to work late in the gallery tonight, and had no car. She was fine with it.
After my gallery shift finished she picked me up and we headed to Bangsar to meet up with Susan and Max for dinner. Lmao. Had a great time chatting with them, laughing over stupid matters, as well as hearing about some more recent serious issues. Anyhoo, after chatting Sharon and I headed to Sunway for her to get her MC, and I thought of introducing her to Symposium, but I remembered that everyone was in Genting -.-. We went to Mid Valley to wait out for the movie. We had a little over an hour to waste.
So we went to the arcades! Lmao... Mid Valley's arcade is pretty crappy, and with the renovations, half the games were off. Geez. But still, we had a lot of fun! We played Ghost Recon or something like that, a shooting game similar to Razing Storm. Naturally I survived longer and she died pretty early on. Then we moved on to racing in Maximum Tune 2. Funny... we both chose our favourite car, the Nissan GTR. Same colour as well! Lmao. We raced, and at the last few seconds, I accidentally hit a truck, and she overtook me to win. Pfft! Meh... after that we went to Starbucks to chill and share jokes. We talked about advertisements, a lot of dirty jokes, and even classical music. I learned quite a few things. Nice.
And at last, the time for the movie had come. It started at 12:45am, and the crowd was pretty small. No surprise. It was the weekday, and it was a midnight movie. Not to mention we were watching The Lady, an autobiographical film about her childhood up to the point of our present time, and I doubt most Malaysians are interested in history movies. Michelle Yeoh seriously looks like her, and the hairstyle was practically identical. She did a great job as Aung San Suu Kyi, and her Burmese in the film was smooth and fluent. It was also historically accurate, with certain speeches being the exact words Suu Kyi used herself years ago. It cleared up some minor misinformation I knew about her and also led me to know much more about her life. Sharon picked the movie, so kudos to her. Apparently she's a history junkie like me, although on her part, certain facts and chronology could use some help.
The movie ended close to 3am. We walked and chatted as we tried to find the way back to her car, and again, she was extremely tired. Then again, so was I. She asked me to stay over in her place, so that she wouldn't need to drive me back, and in her tired state, drive herself back home. I was fine with that, but I needed a change of clothes and my laptop, so I said I'd drive myself home, pick up my stuff and then drive back to her place. She'd get to sleep in the car while I did my stuff. Funny thing was, when I reached home, my mom wasn't asleep yet. I told her I was staying over in Sharon's place and she was like "Her parents are okay with that?" and I told her that her parents were in JB, and that Sharon's mom was 6 years my mom's junior in the same secondary school, Foon Yew. Yeah. I learned a lot about Sharon on our "date", from ex-boyfriends to family and all. Apparently we're linked through several mutual places in Johor Bahru like Holy Light Church, Foon Yew and Permas.
Meh. So after I packed up my stuff I drove back to her place, and after she smoked her last stick of the night on the balcony (she's got a freaking balcony!), we went to bed.
