2. starbucks

I stared up at the menu. "Um... just a black coffee." I told the woman behind the counter.

"Same for me." Connor smiled and pulled out his wallet.

"I can pay for my own!" I swatted his hand away playfully.

"Well, if you did, I wouldn't be a gentleman, would I?" He winked at me and I felt my knees go weak.

"Name please?" The girl asked, smiling at Con.

I folded my arms and huffed impatiently. "Connor." He told her and walked off. I quickly followed him and looked behind me to smirk at the girl, who looked annoyed.

"Jealous?" Con asked cheekily. I turned bright red and turned away.

My phone started ringing and I picked it up, glad for an excuse to get away from Connor for a minute.

"Hey Rubes." Milli's voice filled my ear.

"Hey MilMil." I smiled, even though she couldn't see.

"Where are you?" She asked me.

"Umm, starbucks. With... with Connor." I told her sheepishly.

"Connor? The guy from the blind date?" She asked me. I could tell she was hanging on my every word.

I laughed. "Yep." I turned around to see Con waving at me from across the cafe. "Hey, I gotta go, kay?"

"Okay, that's cool. Talk to you later." She said, hanging up.

I quickly walked over to Connor, closing my phone. "Hey again." He greeted me, handing me my coffee.

"Thanks." I smiled, taking it from him. I took a sip and sighed.

I giggled. "I can't believe Brad would do that."

Connor laughed with me. "Yeah, he's one crazy guy. And there was this one time with James..." He began.

I listened to his story, giggling the entire time. "Oh my god." I wiped my eyes after he had finished. "You know, I thought you would've been different. I mean, you are a famous pop star..."

Connor laughed. "I'm glad I'm not a huge bighead." He nudged me.

I giggled. "You're definitely not." I locked eyes with him, smiling.

Connor leaned closer to me, smiling. He placed his lips on mine, kissing me passionately. I pulled him closer, kissing him back.

He withdrew and looked at me. "I really like you Ruby..."

I blushed. "Same..."

"Will... will you be my girlfriend?" He asked me.

I turned even brighter red and nodded. Connor looked relieved and smiled.

CONNOR'S P.O.V

I wanted to have a beautiful date with Ruby today, so I texted her in the morning.

Me: hey, u free today? xx

Ruby: hey, yea I'm going to the city w milli this morning, but i'm free in the arvo :) x

Me: cool, can u come to mine? address is 172 grenfell rd xx

Ruby: cool, cya then x

I smiled, putting my phone down. I immediately went into the kitchen to start getting our picnic ready.

Five minutes later, I heard a knock at my door. I walked over, dusting off my hands. I opened the door to see Brad, James, Tristan and our manager Joe.

"Hey guys." I smiled at them.

"Hey mate." Tris said, walking into my apartment.

"Umm..." I watched as they all walked inside. "What are you guys doing?"

"Dude, did you forget? We've got that interview today." Joe smiled at me.

I couldn't believe I forgot. "Shit." I breathed. I turned to Joe. "Uhh, can I bring someone to the interview?" I scratched the back of my neck.

"Umm I guess so." He told me.

I smiled and brought out my phone to text Ruby.

Me: hey, can u come a little earlier? xx

Ruby: yea sure, milli had to cancel anyway. i'll be over soon x

Me: see ya then :) xx

"Okay, it's all good." I smiled at them.

"Cool." Brad grinned at me. "Who's coming?" He winked.

"I knowwwww!" Tris sung. I turned red and nudged him. "Her name is Ruby. Con met her when we were speed dating yesterday."

Brad and James' eyes widened. "Oooh!" They sung. "Is she hot?" Brad asked, winking.

I laughed, shaking my head. "She is... but... just SHUT UP!" I rolled my eyes.

The doorbell rang and I opened it to see a smiling Ruby. "Hi." She greeted me.

"Hey." I cleared my throat, my cheeks red. Brad pushed past me.

"Heyyyyyyy! You must be Ruby!" He yelled.

She giggled. "Calm down Brad." I rolled my eyes.

"Hey again." Tris smiled at her.

"Hi." James held out his hand, which she shook.

"Hello, I'm the boys manager, Joe." Joe walked over to us.

"Hi." Ruby smiled at all of them.

"Okay, Rubes, we have an interview to go to, but after, it'll be just us, I promise." I told her, taking her hand in mine. She smiled at me and nodded.

"Okay boys, now a bit more personal... Any of you lads got a girlfriend?" The interviewer asked, smiling.

Brad, James and Tris all turned to me. My went red and the interviewer laughed. "Well...?" She asked.

"Umm..." I looked over at the stage curtains, where Ruby was standing. She smiled at me and nodded. "Well... there is this girl I met on a blind date..." I smiled, looking at my feet.

"Oooh. Well, I'm sure my viewers would love to hear more, but we're out of time. See you boys another time." The interviewer smiled at the camera.

RUBY'S P.O.V

Connor and the boys walked over to me, smiling. I threw my arms around Con, smiling. The interviewer came over, talking to the camera man. She looked at me.

"You must be Connor's special girl." She smiled warmly at me, and I blushed.

"You could say that." I giggled. Connor took my hand.

"Let's go." He smiled at me. I hugged him and looked at the other guys.

"See ya guys." I smiled at them.

"Bye! And remember to stay safe!" Brad yelled after us.

Connor turned bright red and I giggled. "It's okay Con." I touched his arm affectionately. "You don't have to be embarrassed."

Con kissed my cheek sweetly. "So, what's the plan?" I asked him.

"Well, it's a surprise." He winked at me and my knees went weak.

"I look forward to it." I giggled and lent my head on his shoulder.
