Chapter 13 - Lucas
* TORI'S POV *
I was surprised at what he did. I looked at his face. I was so close to him I couldn't help but blush a little.
'Stop it! Use your brain silly!' I scolded myself and avoided eye contact with him.
This is actually the first time I saw him in casual clothes. He was just wearing a polo shirt and simple pants but the way he looked right now is simply awesome. He wasn't trying hard to be the hot guy in the party but I had to admit, he really looks good and hot!
"Are you blushing?" He asked giving me a smile.
"No! It's just... I'm kinda embarrassed with all these people staring at me."
"No worries, you'll be fine. Besides, everyone knows you're with me now." He moved his face close to mine and put his hands gently on my cheeks. I couldn't take my eyes off him. "See what I'm doing? You'll be fine." He assured me.
My heart was racing the whole time. It made me trust him. "Okay." Then he lets go.
A lot of thoughts were running through my head. After such a long time, I’m actually at a party. I can't remember the last time I was at these kinds of functions. If Chloe’s here, she'd probably try to teach me to flirt with someone or something, or do shots, or whatever people do in here.
The party’s kinda kick-ass. Everyone is having a good time. I wondered if all these people knew each other. If so, then Zach's friend really knows how to get around.
For some reason, I really wanted to fit in. The dress looks amazing. I thought I was overdressed for the occasion. Yet, Zach keeps on insisting it looks ok on me.
I’m having a hard time believing him. I don't know if he's trying to be nice or something, but knowing him, he'd probably make fun of me, that's for sure. I couldn't get the logic of all the things Zach done to me these recent days. Perhaps he's turning over a new leaf?
So what's next? How do I impress his friends? Do I have to drink now? And where is this friend of Zach?
"Hey, you're spacing out again." He noticed.
"Oh, sorry. I have a lot on my mind."
"You think? You're with me Tori, loosen up." He put his hands inside his pocket.
"So, what do I say to this friend of yours?" I asked.
"Just be yourself. You know, jolly girl with the attitude." He smirked.
"Jolly girl?" I raised my left eyebrow.
"Okay, you're jolly, so what? Everybody loves a jolly girl." He said trying hard not to laugh.
"You're really mean you know that?"
"I'm just answering your question, Ms. Peige." He said sounding like a gentleman.
"Thank you for your straight answer, Mr. Anderson." I retorted. Trying to imitate a noble.
"Well, at least you're not being the usual worrywart anymore. If you feel uneasy, I just had to open my big mouth if you want.”
"What? No! Fine, I won't worry anymore. I'll try to have a good time." I assured him.
"Good for you. Besides, I made it perfectly clear to everyone that you're with me." The fact that we were having a conversation made me feel a bit more comfortable. The people staring at us didn't matter. I’m sort of enjoying myself.
"You have a nice way of introducing people, Zach." I said sarcastically.
"I was being sarcastic."
"Of course you are." He was looking for an empty table for us. Then, we finally saw one. "Let's go." He grabbed my hand and we walked to the empty table.
"Stay here, I'll grab us some drinks. You want anything?"
"Don't they have waiters here?" I probed.
"They do, I'll also be looking for James actually."
"Fine. But I have no plans to drink. Just something with no alcohol will be fine." I answered right away. For a second there, I’m actually afraid to be left alone, but having Zach around made me comfortable and kept me from worrying too much.
