Fitting In

Grace is one of the ´popular´ kids but when she falls for a cute, intelligent but UN-popular guy named Luke, she opens her eyes and finally realizes just how mean her friends can be. And when Grace tries to break away and be her own person, she feel the full force of a popular girls wrath.


13. Alone together


Before they could say any more and actually make it clear who they were talking about, I climbed down the tree acting as if I did not know they were there. As soon as he saw me, Dylan yelled

"Hey, GRACE!"

Luke blushed a deep red, but I pretend not to notice

"Hey Guys! Whats up?" I reply

"Nothing, but I just remembered that i have some homework I gotta do, see ya!" and with that Dylan ran off, leaving me and Luke Alone together. Luke asks me how my day had been and then asked

"So, were are you going on your date with Lucas?" he was pretending not to care

"Seriously, news travels fast here! You know, I havn´t actually said yes yet!"

"Really?!" Luke replied, showing more enthusiasm than he probably wanted to.

"Yeah, I mean, my mom always says that if you can`t say yes immediately then you probably shouldn't say yes at all and I couldn`t say yes because I was dragged off by other people." I blushed at the mention of the `yes` word and as I looked at the ground I felt Luke`s hand over mine.  

 I waited for Luke to do something, make a move, anything! But he just stared out into the distance, saying nothing.


"Uh, I better get back, if Lucas comes looking for me he may find this place."

"Yeah." He replies, quietly. I feel slightly annoyed and hurt. I walk off in a huff and go back to the chill room.


When I get back to the chill room, the door is still locked so Lucas hadn't come looking for me yet, thank god. Suddenly I hear footsteps in the hallway and I struggle to push the couch back over the trap door and only just manage to cover it and lie down when the door swings open and Lucas comes in.

I sit up and he comes and kneels down in front of me, and I`m not saying that I am the shortest person ever but the level of his eyes was definitely above mine! This is probably the first time that I have ever really looked at his face properly. He was so different than Luke, I mean they both were at least 6 ft and very fit, but Luke had totally cute dark brown short hair, bright blue eyes, the same colour as the swimming pools in the really expensive resorts and tanned skin. Lucas however was another ball game altogether. He had long golden blond hair and dark hot chocolate eyes. His skin was evenly tanned all over. They were both very different, but both made you want to just stop and stare.

"Grace" He said putting one hand up to my cheek " Are you alright now?" He asked

"Don't worry, I'm fine" I reply, jokingly " I'm wearing waterproof mascara!"
