Kate arrives an hour early for dinner and is hanging over Luca as he cooks so to avoid any awkward PDAs Eddie is hiding out in her room. She had been wearing sweatpants and a singlet until Kate arrived in a body con dress. Eddie decided she had to step up her game a little so found an outfit in the back of her wardrobe. it wasn't quite as classy as Kate but it was Eddie. Leggings and a baggy t-shirt dress.
Eddie lays back on her bed after applying a thin layer of makeup. Eddie hardly ever wears makeup and she certainly wouldn't have bought it for herself but it was a gift from Maria last Christmas. After Thanksgiving Eddie was sad to leave the Morreti's but on the plus side Christmas was only a few weeks away.
Eddie stands and walks over to the mirror once again to check out her look. She sighs. She grabs her phone off the nightstand and takes a quick selfie before sending it to Marc.
6.34pm: Do I look ok?
6.36pm: Always Bella.
6.36pm: What is wrong?
6.37pm: I'm worried about dinner. Kate arrived early looking like a freaking supermodel!
6.37pm: You look beautiful Eddie. I'm sure Luca will think so too.
6.38pm: You mean Parker.
6.39pm: Goodnight Marcello.
6.39pm: Goodnight Cara. Have fun...
As Eddie puts her phone back on the nightstand she notices Parker's pick up parked on the curb. Quickly leaving her room she races out through the lounge room to the front door. When she opens it she find Parker about to knock.
"Wow you're good" he says. He presses a chaste kiss to her lips before handing over a bunch of flowers, lilies. "These are for you."
"Thank you Parker, they are beautiful" Eddie smiles at him noticing a bottle of wine in his hands, "Who is the wine for?"
Parker looks over her shoulder and Eddie turns to see Luca and Kate standing in the doorway of the kitchen. "Uh... this is for Luca. It is red. I hope that goes with dinner."
Luca looks at Eddie before flicking his gaze to Parker and stepping forward to accept the wine. "Thanks. It's great" Luca says a smirk forming on his lips. "Kate show Parker into the lounge room. I'm going to finish dinner and Eddie we will get a vase for your flowers."
Everyone follows Luca's directions as Luca and Eddie walk into the kitchen. Luca grabs a vase out from under the sink filling it with water and handing it to Eddie. Eddie does her best to arrange the flowers in the vase. She smiles at them and Luca snorts behind her.
"What?" Eddie turns to face Luca who has not taken his eyes off of her.
"You look nice" Luca tucks a stray hair behind Eddie's ear. His fingers brush Eddie's cheek and she feels her skin heat and tingle.
She looks up at him through her lashes, "Uh... thanks."
"You hate lilies," Luca states turning his head back to the pasta.
"No I don't."
"Oh I'm sorry I must have you confused with my other roommate."
"Shut up ok! They are beautiful and I have never had a guy buy me flowers before!" Eddie hisses. She grabs the bottle of wine and four wine glasses and heads into the dining room. "Kate, Parker, would you like a glass of wine?"
"Yes please" Parker says as he and Kate walk in from the lounge room.
"I'm just going to check on my man. It is so sexy that he can cook. Right Eddie?"
"Sure" Eddie says with a fake smile as she hands Parker a glass of wine.
The four sit down and enjoy dinner. Parker sits next to Eddie with his hand on her thigh. She can't help but notice that her skin doesn't tingle like it does when Luca touches her. Luca sits with Kate on his left. Luca eats not taking his eyes off Eddie and Parker as Kate finds excuses to touch him. As they finish their pasta Eddie moves to collect everyones plates. Luca notices how Parker sits back and watches her as she moves his eyes resting on her arse. Luca stands from his seat.
"Sit down, Ed. I'll get it" he says quickly.
"Luciano you cooked it is the least I can do" Eddie says hurrying into the kitchen. When Eddie returns she sits down at the table to find Kate staring at her. "Kate is something wrong?"
"You called him Luciano..." Kate states but it sounds like a question.
"That is his name" Eddie says simply looking from Luca to Kate.
Kate shifts her gaze to Luca and his lips press into a thin line. Eddie rolls her eyes, they have been together for two years and she doesn't even know his name...
"So Luca should I get dessert?" Eddie says trying to break the now awkward silence.
Luca opens his mouth to reply when there is a knock at the door. "Ah I'll get dessert, you get the door."
Eddie nods walking out of the dining room to the front door. The person knocks again just as Eddie lets the door swing open.
"Eddison?" a high pitched squeak comes out of the blonde standing in front of her.
"You remember" Bunny squeals wrapping her arms around Eddie pulling her into a hug. "Is Luca here?"
Eddie steps back from Bunny with a smile. Several thoughts run through her head. She could tell Bunny 'no' and save Luca the trouble or she could invite Bunny in for the after dinner show. Eddie looks back to the dining room and then back to Bunny.
Taking a deep breath in she makes her choice. Eddie takes Bunny by the hand leading her inside. Just before they reach the dining room she calls out to her roommate.
"LUCA YOU HAVE A GUEST!"
