A month and a half had passed and we were in the end of October and things were great. I had gotten four new best friends. Luke and I hadn't talked much about our feelings and right now we were still 'only friends'. My dad was working more and more. I was getting worried about dad, he normally didn't work this much. I wonder what was holding him at work. I grabbed my guitar, swung it over my shoulder and headed outside. I had started practising with the boys, I would sit next to them and play the guitar. It was so much fun playing with them, I had pretty much learned all their songs and I knew all the lyrics. Sometimes they'd even let me sing their songs for them. Luke had told me to come to band practise at eight that day, which was kind of unusual since we always had band practise at five.
Zelda was coming soon. I had told her to come at eight for band practise but really I'd set up for us to watch a romantic movie and I bought roses for her. I was so nervous, I wanted to talk to her about my feelings for her and maybe ask her if she wanted to be my girlfriend. It was very important, she was important. I had known her for some time now, and I wanted to take things to another level, I really liked her and I would still think about the kiss we shared in my room. There was a knock at the front door; Zelda! I ran to the door and opened it "Hi beautiful" she looked gorgeous but that was no surprise she always did. "Hi Lukey" she said blushing. "Where are the boys?" She looked questioningly at me "They're not here" I replied "Why?" I could almost see how the questions where forming in her pretty head. "Okay, so the reason I said eight, was because I'd actually planned something for us. Firstly here are some roses" I handed her the roses nonchalantly smiling "Oh Luke they're beautiful!" She gasped "Just like you" I smirked. "What's going on Luke?"
"Well we are watching a romantic movie now, and after the movie I have to tell you something" I lead her to my room, where I had put candles all over, and rose petals on the floor just to set the mood. "Luke! What is all this?" Her face was unreadable, I became unsure of the idea, was I going too fast? Did she not like it?
I was speechless by what Luke had done for me. It was the sweetest most romantic thing ever! We weren't even together, I wonder what he'll do if we were together.. "Okay all questions are going to have to wait until after the movie" Luke said as he put on the movie and lead me to his bed, where he had made it look like a sofa. The movie we were watching was The Notebook, it was like he knew me so well, I loved that movie. Throughout the movie we made a lot of eye contact and occasionally our hands would touch.
"Thank you Luke, it was really nice." I said after the movie had ended. "I'm glad" he replied softly "So what did you want to tell me?" I asked "Okay so.. Zelda you make me nervous, but in a good way. I always think about you and it makes me smile.. I like you a lot and I really hope you feel the same way. I think I might be falling for you"
My head was spinning; what had Luke just said? Oh yeah, he just told me how he felt. I feel the same way!! Well maybe I should actually tell him instead of just thinking it. "Luke.. I.. I feel the same way, I really really like you!" I was bursting with happiness now. "Zelda.. I have been wanting to ask you this for a while, I was just too scared to do it but... Zelda Lexa Carman, will you be my girlfriend?" Luke's words were echoing in my head. "I'd love to be your girlfriend Luke Hemmings!" I had a boyfriend now!
Luke's eyes lit up and he grabbed me in a tender kiss, the kiss was even better than the first. Could he be more wonderful? Wait that would mean he actually had to meet dad. Well no worries now, I'll think about that some other time. "Zelda, thank you for making me the luckiest boy on the planet!" Luke said as we parted for air. I smiled and kissed him again. Luke's hands slowly made their way under my shirt, exploring the upper part of my body. My hands slowly grabbed his neck playing with his hair. I wanted him so bad. I decided to stay over and we lay down in his bed kissing and holding hands.
