I wake up to the sound of someone knocking on my door and groan. What the hell? Who is up at... oh, it's seven thirty.
"Just a minute!" I call downstairs. I think of Lyric and adjust to turbo speed and get ready. I pull on a baseball styled shirt and kept my sweats on. Hopefully Lyric won't mind.
I open the door and it's not Lyric. I sigh, it's a blonde wearing a crop top and high-waist shorts and way too much makeup. It's pretty yeah, but Lyric doesn't wear a lot and I think she looks better than this girl.
"Hi," she smiles, "I'm Summer."
"Uh, Matthew." I rub the back of my neck. Who is this girl?
"I'm friends with Lyric and I,"
"Oh you know Lyric?" I cut her off, I smile and she blinks a few times.
"Yeah," she twirls a strand of hair around her finger. "Uh, so... I saw you yesterday and wanted to know if you wanted to hang out?"
"Oh, uh sorry but I was going to ask Lyric out to lunch today." I saw awkwardly.
She scrunches her face up at me and I notice she shivers when a breeze blows by.
"Uh, aren't you cold? You look like you're going to freeze." I tell her.
"Ugh, all men are the same!" She declares and marches off. I'm a little taken aback, what did I do? I asked if she was cold, that's all.
I watch her go inside Lyric's house and decide to call Lyric. I go inside and find the little sticky note she gave me last night, I dial her number then quickly hang up. That Summer girl may be there and I don't want her to hear me call.
I text Lyric instead: Hey, it's Matthew, your friend came over earlier and got mad when I asked if she was cold... weird... anyways, do you want to grab lunch with me? I've only been here for a while, so if you know of any good places that'd be awesome. :)
It takes me about a minute or two to type that out to the point where I'm happy with it. While I wait for her response I make a cup of coffee. How is it that I'm tired at seven o'clock? Or, now looking at the clock I see it's seven thirty five. Same thing it's too early to want to go back to bed.
I get a reply from Lyric: Yeah, Summer can be a little quirky. Sorry! If you give me five minutes I know of a good pizza place that has a good brunch if you'll drive? XD
I chuckle to myself and reply saying I'll be waiting for her. I quickly change my pants and clean up a little bit. In three minutes Lyric is knocking at my door.
"Hey," I say smiling.
"Hi! Are you ready?" She smiles at me.
"Yeah, always in the mood for pizza." I lead her over to the BMW car I got a while in California and open the door for her.
"Wow, such a gentleman." She teases.
"Anything for such a pretty lady." I wink at her. She blushes and gives me the biggest smile.
I start driving while she gives me directions to a hole-in-the wall old fashioned pizza parlor.
