9. Chapter 9

Luke's POV

Grace held my hand in hers pulling me through the room. I spotted Cassidy sitting alone at a table bouncing her head up and down to the music playing. When she saw Rose and I her eyes widened and she nodded at me. I knew it was a signal that I should talk to Grace about how I feel, but I wasn't sure if I could do it. I knew how I felt about Grace, but I wasn't sure if I was ready for her to. Suddenly, she stopped and turned to face me. She looked at me like I was supposed to say something, but I still hadn't decided what to do.

She was the one to break the silence, "Luke? What did you mean about how it kills you to see me with with your best friend?"

Shit. I have to do it. It's now or never.

I took a deep breath,  " I could try to deny it, but I've already said it. Fuck Grace. I care about you so much. I want you to be happy, and I want Ashton to be happy. But I can't hide my feelings for you I have for to long. I've liked you for I dont even know how long. You are the only person who knows the real me. I know I can rely on you and we can both trust each other. Your gorgeous and amazing and if you don't say something soon I'm just going to continue to ramble so I need you to stop me." I was going to stay for her response this time. I needed to know what she was going to say.

She sighed,"Luke." This was a bad idea what have I done. I've ruined our friendship that's what I've done. I can't lose her as a friend.

I shook my head, "Ashton I get it. It's fine. I am fine with just being friends. I Just thought you should know."

I started to walk away, but she stopped me.

"I didn't even know I had been waiting for you to say something like, but now that you have I know I've been waiting for you to say it almost my whole life."

What.

Then, her lips were on mine. It was even better than I imagined and it was something I imagined often. I never wanted it to end, but Ashton was in here somewhere and I couldn't let him see this.

"Grace," I whispered against her lips, "Ashton."

She swore, but I don't think she meant to out loud. She pulled away from me. "We have to tell him."

I knew she was right, but I didn't want her to be. What were we even going to tell him? I know she just kissed me, but that doesn't mean that she wants to break up with him. "What exactly are we going to say?"

She frowned, "The truth I guess. That we kissed and we're so sorry. Then I'm going to break up with him, but I can do that on my own."

"You're going to break up with him?" I shouldn't have been as happy as I was about this.

"Don't be stupid of course I am. I care about you so much Luke, I'm not missing this chance." she smiled, but I knew she wasn't happy. Grace hated breaking up with people. She usually stayed in bad relationships until the other person broke up with her just because she didn't want to hurt their feelings. Breaking up with Ashton will not be easy for her.

"When are we going to tell him?" I asked.

"Tonight."
