9. Stepping Up My Game

Louis's P.O.V.
I drove to Grace's house because she left before I could ask her, and I didn't want to allow myself a night of thinking about it.
I was on her floor when I saw that same blond guy talking to her outside her apartment.
I just watched for a while, but she invites him in so what was I to do?
I went back home and waiting till the next morning... It was then that I decided I wanted to get a coffee.

Grace's P.O.V.
I woke up the next morning feeling miserable. Mentally miserable.
Why hadn't things worked out with Carter? He was a great guy and cute and maybe I just didn't give him a chance.
I was working in the back that morning, unloading coffee beans and other ingredients from the truck. It was probably 45 degrees that morning, so I wore a sweatshirt and jeans. Which If I may add is against dress code, but my boss didn't really believe in the dress code all that much.
I was unloading some of the bags when Jean came out back," Sweetie there's a young man here to see you, and George came in early for his shift so you can leave. We will still pay you for the day."
" Are you sure Jean? You don't do that for the other employees," I knew she worried about me, especially since I needed the money. She even offered to
Pay my first couple rents but I quickly declined.
" Of course, plus he's a very good looking boy, would be good for you," she winked at me and I laughed.
I walked inside kind of expecting to see Carter, but instead I saw Louis..


Louis's P.O.V.
She came out cheeks red from the cold, in a grey sweatshirt and dark blue jeans.
She looked perfect," Hey I want to stop by and say hello, we never got a chance to talk yesterday."
She kind of froze and said," Oh... Sorry... I umm.. I have to work."
The older lady I had talked to before came from behind the counter," Grace, George came in early. Your free," winking at her.
I laughed," Well it looks like your free now, come on you must be freezing. Let me at least buy you a drink."
She nodded and we ordered, sat down and began talking.
" So how's Lottie?" she asked.
I laughed," I don't know you tell me I see her probably as much as you do."
She smiled," She's a sweet girl..."
" My sister? Sweet?," I laughed," she's always hung out with these two kids, its good for her to have you."
She took a sip of coffee and asked," is one of them David?"
At that I busted out laughing," Good old Dave..."
She interrupted," What's wrong with him?"
" He's had a mad crush on Lot forever and he won't make a move. Haz and I try to get him too, but he just won't talk to us about it."
" And how do you know he likes her?"
" Well I see the way he looks at her and compare it to," I stopped. I almost said it out loud.
She smiled," Compare it to what?"
" Oh shut up," I replied, feeling myself blush. No stop, I'm not the girl here.
" Anyway I wanted to talk to you about this dinner I have to go to on Saturday..."
She abruptly stopped drinking her coffee and looked me in the eyes," Lottie is going isnt she?"
" Yeah but that's not what I wanted to ask you."
She smiled," Go on."
I suddenly felt very nervous and awkward," Well... I was.. Wondering... If you..."
She laughed," Spit it out otherwise I can't answer."
I took a deep breath, smiled, and said," I was wondering if you would go with me?"
She smiled for a split second and then said," Nope."
She pulled out her phone, I was shocked," No? That's it? Come on Gracie.."
She was serious," Don't call me Gracie."
" Fine, but seriously why wont you go?"
" Because think how awkward that is for Lottie. Her brother and her tutor.. Its just not going to.."
" She was the one who suggested I do so," I interrupted.
She stopped," Really?"
I nodded, taking another sip of coffee.
" Louis?" she asked.
I just looked at her hopefully.
" I'll go, but we are going as FRIENDS right?"
I nodded," Of course love, you wouldn't be able to handle all this," I joked," If it were a date date."
She laughed," Alright I guess I'll go."
