I stood at my window as Luke knocked at my door. He walked into my room and over to me, "want to talk about it?"
"What's to talk about," I asked with a shrug.
"The fact you're afraid to admit you may actually like someone," he said to me.
"I'm not afraid of like someone."
"Then what is it. Cole you are the quietest our of all of us. No one ever knows what is going on in your head because you never let anyone in," he said to me.
"Maybe I don't need to share my feelings like most people. Luke, people worry about someone when they don't say much but that's not me. It never has been," I said simply.
"Yeah I know. But honestly, I think you should give this guy Wade a chance. You never know," he suggested.
"I'll think about it," I said.
Luke left and I stood there. I never understood why everyone felt the need to share everything. To me, it wasn't a big deal but everyone else made it a big deal. Maybe I'm just comfortable in my own skin. Shocker, right?
Who knows, maybe one day I may just surprise them all.
"What do you mean he didn't flirt back," Adrian asked me.
"I don't know. It's like he's a closed book. I tried to strike up a conversation but got shot down. Maybe I'm reading the signs wrong," I shrugged as I got dressed.
"Well, from what Antonio said, Cole is the quietest out of all of them. He doesn't say much," Adrian said as he finished dressing.
"I wonder why," I said to him.
"It's probably his personality. Think about it. Luke is the oldest and Rain is the youngest. Maybe he just prefers to be in the background," he shrugged.
"I don't think that's it. Maybe he's just comfortable with who he is," I shrugged.
That was the thing about Cole, he didn't seem like he was insecure, mean or anything like that. I think he was just quiet by nature. I just wish I could figure him out. It would things easier.
After pulling on my coat, I walked out of the locker room and found Cole leaning against his car.
I walked over to him, "what are you doing here?"
"Waiting," he said.
I looked at him.
"Was it necessary to show up at my house," he asked me.
"What was I suppose to do? Your dad wanted to talk to me. And Percy, really?"
He shrugged, "my sister is smart as hell."
I looked at him.
"Look, I had to coach Rain for a while. My dad is not going to be happy," he sighed.
"Cole, I know you want until I'm eighteen to tell people but I'm tired of hiding us," I said to him.
He looked at me, "I know. I hate hiding it. What did Adrian say?"
"Kept asking me questions. I had to act like you were uninterested in me and I was confused. Do I look like the confused type," I asked him.
He scoffed, "hell no, you big flirt. Which good job flirting with me at my house."
"I thought it was," I smirked.
He reached over and pulled me into a kiss. Damn it's been a while since we kissed. I missed his lips against mine.
