Author's Note #1: Hey guys! So I'm back with yet another Jessie fanfic, but it's a crossover with Girl Meets World, I don't really want to limit myself to just one thing. So this story will have...I don't really have a good couple nickname for Luke and Riley, maybe...Lukeley or Riluke or something like that. But yes, this story is mainly about Luke and Riley, and the whirlwind romance that is formed between them. As always, if you enjoy the story, be sure to leave a review with your thoughts, and be sure to leave a review if you have any ideas for the story as well! Alright, without further ado, here's the first chapter! Enjoy :)
The Ross Penthouse, May 23rd, 2015, 11:09 AM.
Luke Ross was sitting in his room, bored out of his mind. He'd actually made plans to go see Avengers: Age of Ultron today with his now ex-girlfriend, Sheila Thompson. But she'd dumped him just so she could get with that new guy, Jason Myers. She'd done it all while dumping Luke: that whole "It's not you, it's me" bullcrap, and she'd even said that she just "thought that they should see other people". And as if that wasn't bad eneough, she'd also said what everyone says to their significant other while dumping them:
"I still want to stay friends, Luke!"
Luke had actually thought about attempting to change her mind, but after she said that, he said nothing else. He just left.
He heard a knock on his door.
"Luke?" he heard Jessie say from the hallway.
"What do you want?" he asked.
"Luke, may I come in?"
"Luke, please, let me come in."
He sighed. "Alright, come in."
Jessie opened the door and walked into his room. She sat next to Luke on his bed and put her arm around him.
"Luke, you really need to go outside and get some fresh air."
"Why?" he asked, not looking at Jessie, but just staring down at the floor.
"Because, ever since Sheila dumped you, you've just been sitting around and moping. You need to cool off from this break-up."
"Do I have to?"
"I'm not forcing you, but if you ever want to get over this break-up, this could be a good start."
Luke hesitantly sighed, and then got up and said, "Ok."
"I can take you to the park if you want." Jessie said.
"Well, actually, could I maybe go by myself? It's just a block or two away. And it's only been a few days since Sheila dumped me, so I think it's best if I'm by myself right now."
Jessie shrugged her shoulders and said, "Ok, whatever you want to do. Call me or text me if you want me to come get you, ok?"
"Ok." Luke said. Jessie got up and left Luke's room. Luke started getting ready. He just changed into a plain white t-shirt and jeans. He still had a little bit of bedhead, so he brushed his hair out a litte bit. He slipped on his socks and shoes and a beige leather jacket, since there was supposed to be a cold front later today. It was a Saturday, so everyone was doing their own thing. Emma was in her room with Zuri filming an episode of Kitty Couture, and Ravi and had gone to some reptile-con thing with Bertram. Luke walked downstairs and took the elevator down to the lobby. Tony wasn't working today, so someone else was at the desk. It was a short walk to the park. Luke didn't really want to go to the playground, as he was getting a little too old for that, so he just sat down on the nearest bench and whipped out his phone. He figured he'd stay here for about an hour or two, and then ask Jessie to come get him. Well, she wanted him to go outside, and that's what he did. And now he planned to pass the time by playing on his phone. After about 15 minutes, the smell of hot dogs from the nearby stand started making him hungry, and luckily he'd brought his wallet, so he decided to get one. He put his phone back in his pocket and started walking over to the hot dog stand—when he accidentally bumped into a girl walking.
"Oh, my bad." Luke said.
"Oh, it's alright." the girl said. Luke looked at her. She was beautiful, with her dark brown hair and dark brown eyes.
"Um, hi. My name's Riley, Riley Matthews." she said sort of shyly.
"I'm Luke, Luke Ross." Luke said, also very shyly.
"Oh my God. Are you-"
"Morgan and Christina Ross' son? Yeah." Luke finished her question, as it wasn't the first time he'd been asked that.
"Oh my God, so, you're like, a celebrity!"
"Well, not really. That's kinda the only reason I'm even popular at my school, is because of who my parents are." Luke said.
Riley's smile turned into a mixed look of sympathy and a little bit of confusion. She said, "Oh, really?"
Luke shrugged his shoulders and replied, "Yeah."
"Well," Luke said, trying to change the subject, "I was just about to get a hot dog. Do you want one?"
"Sure," Riley said, "But I didn't bring any cash with me."
"Don't worry, I'll buy you one." Luke said.
"Really?" Riley was smiling once again, at how much of a gentleman Luke was being.
"Thanks." she said.
Luckily, there was no line for the hot dog stand. As he started walking, he called back to Riley, "You want anything on yours?"
"Just ketchup and mustard, thanks." she replied.
Luke got to the stand and ordered the hot dogs. As requested, he got ketchup and mustard on Riley's and on his, he got mustard, relish, and onions. He handed the man $5 and grabbed the hot dogs. He said to the man, "Keep the change."
The man gladly did.
He walked over to Riley and handed her her hot dog. They both sat down on a bench and ate.
"So Riley," Luke said, trying to make conversation with her, "do you live nearby?"
"Yeah," Riley said with a mouthful of hot dog, "in an apartment about a few blocks away from here. You?"
"Yeah, in the Fairfield." Luke said.
"You think that's fancy, you ought to see my penthouse sometime."
"Penthouse?" Riley chuckled, "You're bluffing."
"Am I?" Luke asked. He whipped his phone back out and pulled up a picture of the penthouse living room and showed it to Riley.
"Oh, wow! Well, I stand corrected." Riley was genuinely in awe.
She had a tiny line of mustard on her upper lip. Seeing this, Luke snickered.
"What?" Riley asked.
"You, uh, have a little bit of a mustard-stache." Luke replied, pointing.
Riley wiped it with the back of her hand. "Did I get it?" she asked.
"Yeah, you're good."
"So, are you here by yourself?"
"No, I'm here with some friends, Maya, Farkle, and Lucas."
"Oh, so I'm just your friend?" Luke joked.
"Not you, silly, I actually do have a friend named Lucas. But, I don't know, I like you." she said, smiling at him.
Luke smiled back.
"Well, I'm here alone. I just came here to get some fresh air. I just got dumped a few days ago."
"Oh my God, really?"
"Yeah, she just dumped me for this new, hotter guy."
"Well, she's crazy. Who wouldn't wanna date you? You're the hottest guy I've ever met." Riley said, and then immediately regretted it.
Luke smiled even more and said, "Really?"
"Yeah," Riley said, "and you were a real gentleman back there, buying me a hot dog."
"Oh, that? Pshh, that was nothing. But, y'know, you're really beautiful too."
They both stared into each other's eyes. They'd only just met today, but already, they were so into each other. Luke wanted to kiss her so bad, but he began thinking: Is this too soon? I mean, I just met her, and I just got dumped. Is starting a new relationship a good move for me at this point in time? And do I really want to kiss her on the first date?
But it was a stretch to even call this a date. He'd just needed to get a breath of fresh air, and he'd met Riley by chance. He couldn't stop himself. He began leaning in to kiss her. Riley saw this and couldn't fight it either, she began leaning in as well. They both closed their eyes. The hairs on the back of Luke's neck stood up. Riley had goosebumps. Luke placed his hand on Riley's cheek and moved her hair away from her face. Their faces were getting closer to each other. Just as their lips were about to touch:
They both jumped. Lucas was standing in front of them.
"We...have to go." Lucas said with a serious look on his face.
"Jeez, Lucas, you scared the crap outta me."
"C'mon, let's go." he said, maintaining his serious look.
"Oh, alright." She got up and started walking with Lucas. He put his arm around her. Riley waved goodbye to Luke. "Bye, Luke!"
Lucas turned his head and shot Luke a dirty look. Luke just nervously stared at him. He turned his head back around, and Luke let out a sigh of relief. He was dissapointed. Well, it could've been...right? he thought. He tried to push his mind to something else. He decided he'd been at the park long enough. He pulled his phone out of his jacket pocket—when a little folded piece of paper fell into his lap. He picked it up, confused. He unfolded it, and saw what was written on it:
It was a phone number. Luke didn't know whose it was, he'd have to check when he got home. He folded the piece of paper back up and put it back in his pocket. He texted Jessie to come pick him up. Luke had a feeling he knew whose phone number it was.
To be continued...
