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.


20. Get off me!! wait never mind, come back!


I pulled away suddenly from Lucas, he looked embarrassed and a little afraid.

         "Grace." He asked, sheepishly "Is anything wrong?" I opened my mouth to reply, but the words just didn't come out, so I just sat there looking like a goldfish. I didn't know what he would think.

          "uhhh" He said, trying to think of something that might salvage the situation "I'm sorry, I shouldn't have done that. There's no way someone like you could would never." He didn't need to finish his sentence, he knew I knew what he meant. 

          "Its just that i've never felt this strongly about anyone before... you're so unique Grace, you're perfect..." I felt tears come to my eyes. He felt this way about me? This boy could have practically any girl in the entire school and he felt like this about me!?!?! I could feel my thoughts about Luke slipping away as Lucas' eyes stared deeply into me, as if into my soul.

           "Oh Grace!" He said passionately "I'm so sorry! Please don't cry! Don't worry about me!..... there's someone else, isn't there?" He asked dejectedly 

           "Whaaaaaat?" I said, finally finding my tongue "Of course there's no-one else, stupid!" I laughed. He looked at me strangely, but with a glimmer of hope in his eyes. He put a hand up to my cheek to wipe away a tear that had escaped my left eye. There were no words now. 

              I looked away from his eyes, embarrassed, but he put his other hand up to my chin and lifted my face to his. My cheeks flushed deep red and the corners of his mouth turned up slightly.

             "Don't be embarrassed Grace..." His voice was barley audible. "Close your eyes" I obeyed. I could feel his face moving closer to mine, his breath against my cheek. My heart was hammering in my chest so hard that I thought I could almost hear it, and everything seemed to be going in slow motion. 

              Thats when I felt his lips against mine -  soft and warm - and this time, I didn't pull away.
