After school, I stopped by my locker. I left my English textbook in there and closed it shut. I looked around for Nani and then while I was wondering why was she taking so long remembered that she was with Gabe.
No need to wait for her then...
I exhaled loudly, and made my way out of the building. Cold, rainy wind hit my face as soon as I stepped outside. I made it down the first set of stone steps before someone came from behind and cover my eyes with their hands.
"Who is it?"
I smiled slightly. I could smell the familiar cool, minty scent of Lucas's perfume.
-Lucas?- He groaned, which caused me to laugh.
-Everytime!- he crossed his arms and frowned.
-I'll pretend like I don't know next time.- I smiled.
-Promise?- he held out his pinky and I intertwined it with mine.
-Where's Nani and Gabe?- he frowned.
-They're...um..they're at Topanga's.- I scratched the back of my neck.
I could imagine Nani sipping on her coffee when all of a sudden Gabe puts his hand over here from across the table and smiles at her with those mesmerizing brown eyes and his beautiful white teeth smile.
-Les?- Lucas waved a hand in front of my face making me loose my train of thought.
-Yeah, Lucas?- I looked up at him. He opened the side of his jacket and cuddled me in.
My breath hitches as I realized how close we were.
-BOO!- Riley pops out of nowhere making me jump.
-Riles you scared her!- Lucas said cuddling me more.
-I'm sorry!- she laughed so hard she turned red.
-You're walking alone? Where's Farkle?-
-He's staying after school to finish up a Science Fair Project. He's going against Smackle, his ex-girlfriend.- When mentioning Smackle Riley tensed up.
-You want to come over?- I asked Riley.
-Really?- she said wide eyed. -I'd love to!-
-You too, Lucas.- I looked up at him and he smiled down at me and nodded.
I oponer the door and our wet boots were left on the mat.
-Woah!- Riley said looking around. -You're house is....HUGE!-
-Apartment.- I corrected. -Home sweet home.- I smiled and made my eyes to the kitchen and made some hot chocolate for all of us.
-You have a record player?- Lucas said eyeing the record player in the corner of the kitchen near the big window.
-Yeah, it's mine.- I handed each person a cup and took one for me.
-Thanks.- Riley said sipping her drink.
-Welcome.- I began to sip my drink when there was a knock on the door.
I went to open it while Riley and Lucas put a record inside the record player.
The mailman handed me a package for Aunt Jenn and I left it on top of the kitchen counter.
