1. chapter 1
"Come on Vanessa, pleaseeeeeeeeeeee!" Caitlin begged. "You never go out don't you think your studies can wait one night just one night?" She continued. She was right all you do is stay home and study which you didn't mind and a night out didn't sound too bad but you didn't know how to get passed your dad. "What am I suppose to tell my dad, oh hey dad do you mind if I go out to the new club down the street? You know him he will laugh in my face." I said rejecting her offer. "Just tell him you are spending the night at my house for a school project or extra credit. Come on Vanessa everyone is going tonight!!" Caitlin begged again. "Huh fine. But I don't have anything to wear." I said looking at my closet filled with Sundays best clothing. Nothing to wear to a nightclub. "I have stuff for you. Don't worry you will look great!" Caitlin said. I could tell this meant a lot to her so saying I didn't want to go probably would have crushed her .
To be honest I was really surprised my dad said I could go spend the night at Caitlin's, but he did and we headed over to her house to get ready for tonight. I let Caitlin do my hair and makeup considering I could barely apply mascara without poking myself in the eye let alone draw cat eyes. "Ok time for a sexy outfit" Caitlin's exclaimed. I rolled my eyes. She threw stuff around the room looking for that "sexy outfit" "Here try this on" she said throwing a black dress at me. Without fighting her I put it on an stepped outside looking in the mirror. My jaw dropped Id never seen myself like this before. "Holy shit Vanessa you look hot!" Caitlin said examining me. "Thanks" I said mesmerized by what she had done. "Alright let's get going we don't want to be too fashionably late." Caitlin's said eager to get out the door.
I got out of the car and all my friends jaws dropped. "Vanessa damn is that really you." I laughed and rolled my eyes. "I'm so happy you decided to come with us." My friend Zoe said. It wasn't like my friends were big party animals or anything but they defiantly liked to go to the biggest events in town and tonight was one of them.
We all went inside as heads turned to look our way. A couple guys whistled at us but I was too busy trying to take everything in to notice. "Hey their beautiful." I heard a voice say behind me. I turned around to see no one other then the Aaron Carlus talking to me. My eyes widened and I froze. I couldn't believe it. The boy my friends and I had been in love with and crushed on since the 7th grade had been talking to me. I remember how I was lucky enough to be his biology partner in 10th grade and even though I did all the work I was honored to work with him. He was tall, muscular, tan, athletic and straight up handsome. "Whats your name sexy?" He said to me. I stood their dumbfounded. I had known this boy for 5 years and he didn't even know my name. I saw the look of excitement on my friends face as I said "trouble." and turned around and walked away. All their jaws dropped.
"What the hell Vanessa!" My friends said to me. "What?" I replied acting like I didn't turn down the most perfect boy ever the boy we all dreamed of dating for 5 years. "Just leave her alone guys." Caitlin said a sticking up for me. God bless her. "Come on let's all go dance!" She said. We all nodded and began walking towards the dance floor.
Whats better then being pushed around by a bunch of drunk, sweaty people and having loud "music" booming in your ear. Everything. Everything would be better. I decided to take a break from all this dancing to go grab something to drink. I went up to the counter and asked for a water as the bartender laughed at me and threw my drink at me. I took it and began to look around the room. I really just wanted to go home cuddle in my bed and read my books but I didn't want to disappoint my friends. This was a big deal to them having a night out to get a little crazy. I looked over to see a tall blonde boy looking at me. He had on a Kurt Cobain shirt on with his tight black skinny jeans and was leaning up against a wall off on the side. I found myself waking towards him as he kept looking at me. "Hi I like your Cobain shirt." I said realizing how awkward that sounded out loud. "Thanks" he said. I couldn't help but look into his eyes they were such a beautiful blue. "So why aren't you out their dancing?" He said breaking the silence. "Oh uh I don't know. I was earlier I needed a break. How about you?" "I don't know I'm not a very good dancer I guess." I laughed. "Same it's hard to dance to the worst top 20." I replied. He laughed. He kinda had a cute giggle. "So if you don't enjoy the worst top 20 then whats your favorite song?" He asked me. "Oh that's a tough question. I don't know if I have a favorite song but I do love the song living on a prayer. Their is something about that song I just love." "Nice choice." He said. We stood their for a while talking about music comparing bands we liked and discussing the best songs ever. Suddenly the song girls by the 1975 started to play and I jumped. "Oh I actually love this song!" I said thrilled the dj actually played a good song. "Same here. Do you uh want to go dance?" He asked shyly. "I thought you don't dance?" I said teasing him. "I mean it's such a good song though." I nodded and took his hand as we headed towards the dance floor.
It was actually a lot of fun. He wasn't as bad of a dancer as he thought he was. "Alright ladies and gents." The dj began to announce. "Were going to slow things down a bit. Grab that sexy person next to you and hold them real close and we slow it dowwwwwwwn." Then he played no1. Party anthem by the arctic monkeys. "Another great song." I said. Soon the tall blonde stranger pulled me close. "Guess we will have to dance to it." He said. I blushed. I was amazed at how tall he was. In my heels I barely reached his chest. I was super short and he towered over me. He spun me around a couple times and I laughed. I was having so much fun with him. The song was coming to an end and he tilted me head up and were looking each other in the eyes. I couldn't get over how beautiful his blue eyes were. I was such a sucker for blue eyes. "You have such pretty eyes." He said to me. I couldn't believe it he had the most perfect blue eyes yet he was complimenting me on my boring hazel eyes. As the song ended me pulled me in and kissed me right their. I was shocked.
"Do you want to get out of this crowded place?" He whispered in my ear putting his hand out to mine. I nodded and we took my hand walking out of the crowded club. It was just as crazy outside the club. "I thought we could go someone not to crazy." He said as he lead me to his car. I got really nervous. I didn't know who this boy was and suddenly he wanted me to get into his car. I had never done anything this crazy before. But I got in. "At least they played some good music tonight." He said breaking the awkward silence. I smiled. Suddenly he leaned in and kissed me again. I really liked it though the feel of his warm lips and cool lip piercing. His leg was on my thigh as it moved up my leg. I tensed up. I had only kissed 2 guys in my life and one was a kindergarten kiss and the other was barley a peck on the lips during a game of spin the bottle. I think he felt me tense up and he backed up and smiled at me and kissed me on the forehead. I just blushed as I turned to look out the window to see my friends walking out of the club. I could tell they were looking for me. "Uhhh I have to go. I think my friends are looking for me." I said turning from looking at the stranger to turning towards the door. "Wait I never got your name." He said "oh uh it's Vanessa." "Well that's a beautiful name. I'm Luke. It was nice meeting you Vanessa." "Same to you I hope you have a wonderful evening." I said getting out of the car. Why did I have to be so awkward. I began to run towards my friends.
