Sneaking out with Luke

12 0 0

You were laying in bed in the middle of the night. You can't sleep. Your bedroom window was open and it was quiet outside. As sleepless hours passed you heard a car engine. You peaked your head out the window and saw Luke, your best friend, sitting in his baby blue toyota. You could see his blue eyes, even from a distance. He motioned for you to come out and you did without hesitation.

"Hey y/n!" he said cheerfully as you got in the car.

"Hi, what's the plan? Where are we going Luke?" you said smiling.

"I could sense that you couldn't sleep. Well, mostly because I was having trouble sleeping too. But anyway, let's just drive around. We can go to that park you like."

"That sounds cool."

Luke drove the car down winding paths. Bands like the fray and the script played softly in the car. On occasion you'd hear Luke hum quietly. As you drove you talked. As shy as you both were you had no trouble opening up to each other. After all, he was your best friend and you were his.

The two of you laughed at stupid inside jokes. It seemed like forever before you reached the park. This park was a special place for you and Luke. It's where you met a few years ago. In the middle of the night when both of you couldn't sleep you happened to meet there.

He pulled up the car and you both got out.

"I'll race you to the swings" you said playfully. You started to run and he grabbed on to your hand and you ran together.

"Tie" he said as you sat down on the swings out of breath.

You both started to swing in unison. You could hear him sigh and you starred at him waiting for him to say something.

"Y/N." Luke started.

"Yeah?" you saw him tense up. He was never shy around you but even through the darkness you could see his cheeks redden.

"Uh. Let's go on the slide." he finally said.

You ignored the nervous tone in his voice and agreed eagerly. You both ran hand and hand to the slide. You would race up to the top and look at the sky and stars. He'd try to push you down the slide and you'd push back. He ended up putting you in his lap and you went down the slide together. You played like little kids on all the park equipment. Laughter filled the silent night. It felt like you were the only two people in the world.

After about an hour of goofing around, he led you back to his car. The temperature was dropping as the night went on. The wind picked up and it was cold. He draped his flannel around your shoulders and insisted on letting you wear it.

"Let's sit in the back seat for a while. The night is still young and I'm not ready to head home. Are you?" Luke asked.

"Nope. I could stay out all night with you. Let's go in the car." Luke opened the back door and let you slide in first. The car was dark but the moon shone through the open windows and lit up his face so that you could see his features perfectly. He climbed in next to you and your leg was pressed into his. His arm was casually around you. It felt comfortable.

He starred intently at you for quite a while.

"Is there something on my face? Why are you starring?" you asked jokingly. You both giggled a little. Then, suddenly, you felt his hand on your chin and he lifted your lips to his. He kissed you softly. When he pulled away you blushed.

"I really love you, y/n. I always have. I wasn't sure if it was obvious. You always caught my eye. I've had a crush since the first time I saw you. You're cute."

It looked as if there were tears welling up in his eyes as he told you.

"Luke, I love you too. You mean everything to me. I never knew you liked me. Not one bit. You kept it hidden well."

"That was the plan. I didn't want things to be awkward. Are they...?"

You shook your head no and a relieved smile spread across his face. He kissed you again. The cool breeze swept through the car as your lips met his. Chills ran up your spine.

You curled up onto Luke's lap and wrapped your arms around his torso. He held you tightly and sang sleepy songs to you. The both of you were tired and cold but there was no way you were going home now. You would risk the punishments. The consequences were worth it. You fell asleep in the back seat of his car to the smell of fresh air and his sweet cologne.
