"I'm good" he nodded as he carried the three to their beds for a nap.
"Not perfect, definitely not perfect" I shook my head, thinking back to a couple days ago.
~couple days ago~
"Em, does Luke not like me??" She asked randomly as we coloured pictures.
"No, why do you think that??" I asked shocked.
"He doesn't spend time with me, it's always the boys" she shrugged, sighing a bit.
"Maybe he doesn't know what you like to do" I said sadly.
"When do you think he will know??" She asked hopefully.
"I don't know" I managed out, stuttering.
"What are you doing this weekend??" He asked, sitting next to me.
"Just dance, I'll be leaving soon" I said, going to get changed. "Have fun" I waved, leaving the house.
I was sitting on the couch all chill and shit till I heard this crying. I walked to the stairs to see paisley trying to walk down them.
"Come here ducky" I picked her up. I started call her that because she follows people and I've heard her quack a few times, but no one knows I do. "What happened??" I asked, rubbing her back and walking her to her bed.
"I had a bad dream, you didn't like me and you yelled at me" she frowned, cuddling into me as I laid down with her.
"Well I like you" I smiled, kissing her on the head.
"But you never spend time with me" she sniffled.
"I'm sorry, maybe we can do something tomorrow, just me and you" I said, wiping away her tears as a big smile stretched out on her face.
"Will you tell me the story of you and Emma now??" She asked, getting comfy.
"Of course" I took a deep breath and began. "Well it started in grade 11" I was really going to have to censor this.
"Have a good day at school, I love you" my mom waved. It was the first day of grade 11, we just moved her to get away from my dad. Trouble followed him everywhere and we moved all the time, my mom got tired of it and thought it was a bad environment for us kids.
"I'm Emma Foster" some pretty girl smiled at me, sitting next to me.
"Luke" I said, looking straight ahead, I wasn't really here to make friends. I'm here because I have to be and we will probably be moving again soon anyways, why get close to someone to just break their heart.
"So you're new here??" She smiled a little.
"Yup" I said, popping the p. "You know you don't have to make pity friends with me, you seem like someone that's going to fuck me over" I said before I could stop myself, she quickly got up and walked away with another girl in tow.
"And she's hated me ever since and I've slow started liking her" I sighed, frowning a bit.
"Tell her" she said simply.
"It's not that easy" I shook my head.
"Well it should be" she exclaimed.
"Well good night little ducky" I kissed her forehead, leaving the room to come face to face with Emma. "Oh hey Emma" I smiled awkwardly.
