The Matthews Apartment, 5:02 PM.
"Don't deny it, Riley, I saw you! You were about to kiss that loser!" Lucas angrily exclaimed.
"It was the heat of the moment, ok?!" Riley yelled at him, "And besides, what would you care if I did kiss him? It's not like we're an item or anything!"
"Um, hello?! Do you not remember when we kissed on the subway?"
"I kissed you! And you didn't even kiss me back, so what does that prove?"
"I don't want you hanging out with that loser, Riley!"
"So it took seeing me almost kiss another guy for you finally realize your feelings for me?"
"Well...I...Riley, come here." He attempted to grab Riley and kiss her, but she pushed him away.
"Don't touch me! You think that we just kiss and make up, just like that? No! We can't! And y'know what? I actually did wanna date you, but now that I know that I know what a jealous douche-bag you are, forget about it!"
"Well, then, maybe I should just leave." Lucas said, staring at the floor for one second and then back at Riley.
"Yeah, I think that's a good idea." Riley said.
Lucas walked out and slammed the door without saying another word.
Riley angrily plopped down onto her bed with her arms crossed. Suddenly, her phone started ringing. She checked it. It was a call from an unknown number. She was confused, but she decided to answer it anyway.
"Um...hello?" she asked.
She recognized the voice immediately, and she started to smile a little bit.
"Hi, Luke." she said, trying not to giggle.
"So this is your phone number, alright."
"I'm sorry I slipped it into your pocket! I know it seems kind of stalkerish, but you just seemed like a really nice guy, and I wanted to stay connected with you. I'm sorry if that came off as kind of-"
"No, it's okay, it's okay." Luke said, "But just out of curiosity, when did you slip the paper into my pocket?"
"Well...when you looking for a picture of your living room on your phone, I kinda seized the opportunity."
"Oh, okay. So, uh, what was up your friend back there at the park? Or are you guys...y'know?"
"Oh, Lucas? Don't mind him. He's just a guy that I liked. Or at least I thought I did. Why?"
"Well...he kind of shot me a dirty look when you guys were walking away."
"Yeah, I didn't read much into it at first, but...then it occurred to me that you guys might be an item..."
"Oh, we're not, trust me."
"Okay. So what's the matter? You sound a little down in the dumps."
"That's 'cause I am."
"Because I had to go through the third degree with Lucas when we got home."
"Are you serious?"
"Where is this douche-bag, I need to knock some sense into him right now!"
"Luke, calm down, it's okay."
"No, it's not okay!"
"I...I'm sorry...I just got a little wound up. I'm cool now."
"Okay...so...would you maybe wanna see each other again sometime?"
"Kinda, yeah..." Riley said, giggling a tiny bit.
"When? And where?" Luke asked, now smiling a bit.
"Well, what would you wanna do?"
"Well, I have a screening room in my penthouse with a 75-inch screen. We could probably watch a movie. But it would have to be when everybody else is out of the house."
"Because if anyone in my family finds out that I'm in a relationship again, I'm positive that they're gonna pass judgement and say that being in a relationship isn't a good move for me at this point in time."
"So...we're in a relationship?"
"I...guess you could say that..." Luke said, grinning.
"Okay...so when would be a good time?"
"Maybe during the weekend."
"Oh. I gotta go, my dad's calling me. I'll talk to you later. I love you, Luke."
Luke was grinning ear to ear and said, "Love you too, Riley."
Luke hung up. He made sure to save Riley's number in his phone. He turned around and saw Zuri standing in his doorway.
He gulped nervously. "Uh...hi, Zuri. How, uh, how long have you, uh, been standing there...?"
"Long enough to hear everything after 'Maybe during the weekend.'." she replied with an eyebrow raised and an evil smirk on her face.
"Crap..." Luke said.
Author's Note #2: So I know that chapter was kind of short, but chapter 3 will be longer. As always, be sure to leave a review with your thoughts on the story, and also be sure to review if you have any ideas for what should happen next in the story. Also, I'm not exactly sure when chapter 3 will be uploaded, because I'm trying to catch up on missing schoolwork and trying to avoid going to summer school. So, maybe in about a week or two, I'll have chapter 3 up, but like I said, I'm not exactly sure. See you guys in chapter 3 :)
