His Lucky Charm
"You know I never meant to hurt you princess." There was a genuine look in his eyes but I didn't let it get to me.
"Why should I believe you?" I muttered incohertly.
"Because you mean the world to me."
"Then I'm guessing the world doesn't mean much to you." I frowned.
"If that was the case..." He smirked before leaning in.
"Then you're another universe altogether."
"Is that supposed to make me feel better?" I leaned closer, feeling a little more confident.
"No, it's supposed to make you forgive me."
"But I don't want to forgive you."
"But you will."
"How can you be sure of that?" He smirked and pulled me into his chest.
"Because you're my lucky charm and no one can take you away from me."

Ever gone to a wild party with your boyfriend only to have him ditch you with a drugged clown? Ever had to sleep in a cramped closet with chimp poop on your head, whilst the cops look for that same drugged clown? Ever jamp off the roof on that same damn clowns back into the neighbours pool so you won't get arrested? Me neither, but to Lucy those where just a few of the obnoxious things that happened in her life.
It's all one stupid badboys fault, but oh as much and she tried she could never get away from Ryder, because once he sets his eyes on something he'll get it no matter what, and he sure as hell wasn't going to let anyone take his lucky charm.
