“Hey Kells, are you hungry?”
“A little, but Luke it’s the middle of the night, we can’t just go out and eat… for all we know there could be hundreds of screaming girls outside of the bus right now.”
Luke walked over to the window opened it and stuck his head out. “All is clear.” Luke laughed “let’s go feed this girl some food.”
“Luke, I’m gonna go change my clothes, I have some in my bag.” Luke walked her back to his dressing room in the main building, no one else was there.
“They must’ve went out” Luke laughed “or possibly back to the hotel. They probably assumed we were somewhere having sex.” Kelly didn’t laugh.
“I’m just going to get dressed now.” She went behind the curtain that had Luke’s name on it, and put on her black Starbucks looking uniform.
“Kelly, why didn’t you tell me you work at Starbucks?”
“Because I don’t.”
“But look at you; you are like the hottest Starbucks employee ever.”
“One problem in that statement: I don’t work at Starbucks.”
Luke laughed, “Okay, I believe you. But if I walk into Starbucks one day, and I see you working there, I’m not going to kiss you for a whole week.”
They were both laughing as they walked out, and out into the warm night air.
“How do you feel about Macca’s?” Luke asked.
“About what? What the heck is Macca’s?” Kelly asked clearly confused.
“Macca’s is what we call McDonalds.”
“Oh! I love Macca’s” Kelly laughed. The stars were out and shining. The moon lit their path. The lack of lights on the street really surprised Kelly. Near campus, there are lots of lights, there is not a bit of darkness, not that there was any darkness now. Just a different kind of light.
They finally walk into the Mcdonalds, “What do you want to eat?” Luke asked, “Do you want to share chicken nuggets, french fries, and a Sprite?”
“OF COURSE! Luke, how did you know all my favorite things?”
“I don’t know... Do you like steak and shake? They have the best Milkshakes? If you do, after we eat here there is one just around the corner and we can go get a milkshake.”
Luke went and ordered a 20 piece nugget, large fries and a sprite. The lady behind the counter recognized him, so he autographed a napkin for her, and took a picture. That was his normal routine. Nothing special. He brought the food over to the table that Kelly had chosen, it was a tall one, with only two chairs, next to each other, looking out the window.
“Kelly, I know we’ve only known eachother for like 8 hours, but...”
“Luke, I can’t go to Australia, not now. I have school. Only for a few weeks though. Then we have all the time in the world.”
“What date does your term end?” Luke asked.
“Well, would you look at that!” Luke was, ecstatically “We might just be back in LA for the end of your term...”
“What do you mean?”
“I mean we might just be back in LA, and then you can come on tour with us!” Luke was excited just thinking about the idea of Kelly being on tour with them. “And of course Tori can come too! but just don’t tell her in case Ash wants to ask her himself, or just surprise her or something.” Kelly laughed.
“You know I’m going to tell her that you invited me. Okay?” Kelly smiled to see if Luke would get it.
“Okay,” They both laughed. Kelly looked down at her phone. The time read 1:47.
“Luke we should probably head back, and lets save the milkshake for another date sometime.” She was smiling “You will have a whole month to make up for when you come back from Australia.”
Luke got off his seat and helped Kelly down, she grabbed their cup, and the tray, she placed the tray on top of the trash bin and refilled their sprite, while Luke threw away the empty french fries and chicken nugget boxes.
