*Rachel’s Point of view*
“Luke, I have to go out and meet Lexie!” I yelled as I was sitting on the chair while he was dying my hair, I mean, helping me.
“Your dye will take time!” he snapped.
“But, Luke, I have a job” I kissed his nose by arching my back up at him.
“What job?” he smirked, “you’re my damsel?”
“Yuck,” I gagged at him.
He rolled his eyes, “I don’t know why I feel like we’re different, I guess I have never loved someone..” he trailed off.
“What do you mean?” I asked him, interested to hear him opening up about himself.
“I had a girlfriend..” he started.
“You’ve had like so many of them,” I replied.
“No, no, this one was serious. Like, the first girlfriend,” he corrected me.
“Oh,” I replied, knowing who he was talking about. Everyone knew her because Luke was so not over her and we were asked to not talk about her.
“Yeah, like she was a mess, she kind of broke me,” he spoke in a low voice.
“First love is always bad,” I said.
“I know and after that its just been this way, you know? I never really took interest in knowing anyone. If I ever met a girl, it was just to flirt around,” he took a deep breath, “but with you its so different. I actually love talking to you, so much. I love laying beside you, hearing you breathe when you’re asleep. I don’t feel the need to tell you nice or sweet things so you end up in bed with me. I’m just myself with you,” he finally pour his feelings out.
Me and Luke had been in a relationship for a month but we never really spoke about how we felt, it was more of just hanging out, falling asleep, watching movies and cuddling. It was the first time he had actually given me an account of how he really feels about me and I couldn’t help but smile, because I knew that I felt the same things for him and it was almost like a relief that I wasn’t the only one feeling so much for him when he wasn’t.
“Luke, I really feel the same,” I started, “you know I had always thought how you weren’t good enough for me, but when we started dating I was exposed to a different side of you, a side I had never expected you to have. And I realized how I was the trouble maker and you weren’t. I have learned so much about you, from what you like at breakfast to how ironed do you want your clothes to be and I don’t want to stop. I want to know you more and more and fall in depths with whoever and however you are,”
He smiled at me, this time it was more sincere and genuine, like I had never expected. It was smooth, he gave me time to adjust and then moved in rhythm with me. I was almost getting lost and involved in him, I wanted him, I needed him. He supported my back with his strong arms so I was totally laying comfortably on him, he kissed my forehead. He stared into my eyes, “you’re so beautiful, you drive me crazy,” he mumbled.
I lay my head on his chest, more cuddled this time, hearing his heart beat gave me jitters in my stomach. I never thought I fall in love with a guy younger to me, maybe that said a lot about my maturity. Because to be honest, I wasn’t much of a mature person too. At least not in love. I was immature and needy and annoying. It was almost abnormal how I start wanting more and more of the person I’m in love with. It wasn’t the mature love and I wasn’t sorry about it, because it was who I was. And I felt Luke could handle me because somewhere, he was a little abnormal too when it came to love, he was needy too and he was annoying, too. And when two needy people end up being together, I don’t think they would make each other feel needy, ever. But that’s what I thought, anyway. It doesn’t have to be true and I did not really care if it was false.
“I feel we are going to get married,” Luke said, breaking the silence.
“What?” I laughed at his cuteness.
“I don’t know what I’m talking! But we’ll name our girl as Christine, okay?” he looked down at me and pecked my lips.
“What if its a boy?” I asked him.
“His name would be Davis,”
“That sounds weird,”
“Shut up!” he snapped at me.
“Okay, okay,” I chuckled, “Now, leave I have to shower!” I say.
As he gets up to leave, he stops and says, “hey,” he turned at me and held me in his arms, “after this little conversation, I think I’m sure that I love you.”
I smiled at him, “I think I’m sure that I love you, too.”
As I was about to get out of the bathroom with my new red and purple hair, I heard Malcolm talking about something so I stood there, because I couldn’t enter the room with just a towel around me because Luke wouldn’t like that, so I stood at the door waiting for him to go away.
“Dude, Lisa is coming to the gig today,” Malcolm said with seriousness in his voice.
Lisa was Luke’s ex girlfriend, I assumed because they always paired them as double L’s.
“What the heck?” Luke replied, “how? Why does she even wanna come!”
“I don’t know, I saw it on an update account. She posted a selfie with a ticket. I think she has meet and greet passes too?” Malcolm explained.
“Ugh!” Luke sighed, “I don’t wanna see her face! And meet and greet? She’s totally gonna make a scene in front of Rachel!”
“Don’t worry, we’ll handle it. I was just saying so you know, you’ll kind of act accordingly,”
“Okay, thanks” Luke said, “Rachel shouldn’t know she’s coming, though,”
“Of course!” Malcolm said and walked out.
I was confused at him not telling me, was he hiding something that happened between them or was he just embarrassed about the way I acted last time at him staring at that girl’s legs. Most of all, Was Luke even over Lisa or he still had feelings for her?
