15. Chapter 15
"Woah" was all Luke said when he walked into my house. This was the typical response of anyone who walked inside my home. I wasn't going to lie my house was pretty large especially for this part of town in Australia. My friends called it "the mansion" but I didn't think it was that big. It was big enough for a family of 6 plus a little extra room to spare. My dad had a very good job that helped afford this "larger" house.
I brought Luke up to my room and received another "woah" from him. "All these are yours?" He said admiring my many many trophies, medallions, and awards around me room. I nodded in response. "I never knew you did all these activities and stuff. This is real impressive." He said to me, "I didn't know you did any of these." "Well I don't really do most of them anymore." I said. It was kind of sad I had to drop all the activities I liked doing to stay focused on my schoolwork and on the right path to Harvard. Luke continued to explore my room as I opened up my math book to start studying.
Inviting Luke to my house was probably the best and worst decision I had made. He kept distracting me making it the worst decision but he made me laugh and gave me a few kisses which made me want him to stay forever. "I'm thirsty." I said getting up and getting off my bed. "Aren't you always." Luke said winking at me. I just rolled my eyes at him, he was such a dork. "Do you want anything?" I said to him. "Just water please." He said smiling at me giving me those cute little puppy eyes he had. I went down into the kitchen as my mom was walking through the front door. She was home early. "Hey whose car is that?" My mom said to me looking strangely out the garage. Luke parked his car in front of my house so no hiding that someone is here. I didn't know what to say or do, it wasn't like I could hide the 6 foot giant out of my house. "Uh I have a friend over..." Then I said the unimaginable "can they stay for dinner?" I couldn't actually believe that I asked but I figured it's time for my parents to meet Luke. I meet all his family and friends and I was having such a good time with him I didn't want him to leave. "Sure honey I'll set and extra plate." My mom said to me.
"So Luke... Want to stay for dinner?" I asked. His face lite up so bright that I couldn't contain the smile it brought to me. "Yes I would love to" he said. I think Luke started to figure out that I was hiding him from my family because I would stop him from getting out of the car, or tell him I would meet him places instead of picking me up. I knew it was time though, things were getting serious between us and I did want to show him off.
