Tina let out a quiet squeal when she felt lips against hers, her eyes widening at the gesture and made her jump back from it but she relaxed when she realized it was just Louis. She let a small smile creep on her face as she brought her hand up to her chest, pulling on the pendant that dangled from her neck.

"You scared me," she told him.

"Sorry," he smiled. "I couldn't help it," he said and reached out for her hands. "I've missed you. It feels like I haven't seen you in forever. I was getting worried you were avoiding me."

"No, of course not," she shook her head and though she didn't feel like she was lying to him, deep down, she knew she had just told him the biggest lie ever. She had been avoiding him, even if she was unaware of doing it at the time. She had been spending so much time with Daniel and Clark that Louis had been pushed to the side. "I'm sorry if I made you feel that way," she squeezed his hand. "I really didn't mean to."

"It's okay," he said and then leaned into her. "You know what would make it better though?"

Tina hummed and leaned her head back slightly, her lips turning into a grin as she saw the look on his face. She rested her hand on his shoulder and leaned into him, meeting his lips. Louis was cheerful that he didn't have to say anything. His hand rested on the small of her back and his grasp pulled her slightly forward causing her to laugh, pulling away from him.

"What do you have going on for the rest of the day?" He asked. "Or are you too busy to give me the time of day?"

"You're in luck because my afternoon class was canceled today so I am all yours," Tina smiled and shut the door to her locker, turning on her heel towards him. "What are you thinking?"

"I never actually thought that far in advance," he admitted. "I thought you'd turn me down."

"Well, I'm starving so how does lunch sound?" She asked and he nodded. "Good," she kissed him quickly before walking off, leaving him behind to watch her as she left. He quickly scurried after her, not wanting to lose her before he got her. "You got to keep up if you want me, Mr. Tomlinson," she teased.

"I think I can manage," he played along with the joke as they walked together out of the building that held Tina's locker, as well as many of their classrooms.

"Glad to hear it," she laughed but before she could completely get it out, a scream fell from her lips as she was scooped up from the ground and twirled around. As soon as the firm hands wrapped around her waist, she knew who it was and as she was set on her feet she could feel his warm breath against her ear.

"Is this my competition?" Daniel asked.

"Daniel," she shook her head as she spun around, pressing on his chest to let her go. She couldn't help but smile at the sight of the blue eyed boy in front of her, even if she hadn't enjoyed being swept off her feet without warning. "This is Louis. Louis, this is my friend from the library, Daniel."

"Ah, Clark told me about you," Louis said and Tina's eyes widened.

"He did what?" Tina asked but he didn't hear her.

"It's nice to finally get to put a face to the name," Louis offered his hand.

"Yeah, I've hear a lot about you too, man," Daniel shook the extended hand. "What are the two of you up to?"

"We're heading to lunch," Tina told him. "We haven't gotten to spend a lot of time together lately."

"Oh, well I'll leave you to it there," Daniel began to step away when he was stopped.

"Daniel, you should join us," Louis suggested.

"What? No," Tina argued, shaking her head.

"Think I'll embarrass you, Tina?" Daniel asked, crossing his arms.
