1. Chapter 1/ intro

Bree's P.O.V

Hi! Im Bree! Short for Briana. I have long dark brown hair and I love history. Im kind of a geek. I have a few friends but not that many. Im on an all-star cheer team. Cali Smoed actually.

Luke's P.O.V

Im Luke. I play soccer and I hate school. I have a secret crush on this really pretty girl in my class but theres one problem, she is kinda a geek. I cant help it. Shes beautiful.



*Close to Christmas time*

Bree's P.O.V again

"Bree, Luke" Mrs Grey said as she named off the rest of the list of partners for this months project.

Great. I get paired with the schools most athletic boy and im an ugly geek. It really doesnt help that he is 1000% cute too.

"Hey Bree." Luke said with a smile towards me.

"Hi" i said quietly.

"So, heres my number. You should text me and we can work something out for getting together to work on the project." He said handing me a slip of paper.

"Thanks." I said looking down at my notebook.

"Wow, your a really good artist." He said.

"Mom, im going to someones house tomarow night to work on a school project." I said walking in the kitchen.

"Who's your partner? McKenzie?" My mom asked.

McKenzie is my best friend. And if the teacher EVER lets us choose partners, which is REALLY RARE, we always choose eachother.

"Actually, captain of the soccer team." I said.

My mom stopped what she was doing.

"Wait, Andrew and Liz's son?" She asked.

"Yeah why?" I asked.

"They are coming over tonight for dinner." She said.

I ran upstairs and super fast mode cleaned my room.

"Mom, when are they going to be here?" I asked.

"7:30" she yelled back.

Its 5:00 right now. Perfect time.

I jumped in the shower and took a super long shower.

I got out about 5:30. Dang. I ran to get dressed. When mom has someone over, its usually nice. Like im talking dress up, put make up on, and actually try. So, I decided to wear a skirt and a sweater thing and also i threw on some basic flats. I curled my hair after I dried it. I spritzed on some Bethany Mota purfume and threw on a long necklace. 6:50. Perfect.

I skipped downstairs.

"Hello, mom." I said grabbing water out of the fridge.

"Hello daughter" she replied.

Then I heard a knock at the door.

"I'll get it." I said.

I opened the door to find the Hemmings' family.

"Ahh, Bree? Child, you have grown since the last time Ive seen you. What a beautiful young lady." Liz said kissing my forehead.

Luke walked in behind her.

"Hi" he whispered.

I smiled.

Luke was the last person. I wonder where his dad is?

"Oh, Marie, Andrew has gotten sick this afternoon. He wanted to come so badly, but he couldnt." Liz said to my mom.

"Ow, thats not good. Ive heard there something going around." My mom said.

"Mom? Can I go to my room?" I asked.

"Yes dear, I'll call you down when the food is done." My mom said.

I walked up the stairs to my room. I sat on my bed for a minuit looking at my phone. Then I got up to start some music. I put my phone on the dock and stared up some Jacob Whitesides.

"Yeah everytime you come around my hearts starts pounding" i sang to myself.

I shut my door so the noise wouldnt carry.

I kind if fell into my own trace when I checked Twitter.

I had like 200 new followers. Turns out, Matt Espinosa and Nash Grier followed me. Oh my god.

My mom yelled something but I didnt understand or even care.

Luke's P.O.V

"Luke, dear, please go tell Bree that the foods ready if you dont care. Her room is up the stairs to the left at the end." Miss. Stepenson said.

"I will." I said getting up from where I was sitting.

I walked up the stairs. I followed music all the way to the room at the end on the left. I knocked on the door.

"Bree?" I asked.

"Its open!" She yelled.

I opened the door and walked in.

"Foods ready." I said.

She nodded.

"Cool room." I said looking around.

"Thanks." She mumbled looking down at the floor.

I wish she wouldnt do that. She is too pretty to do that. But the way her hair fell PERFECTLY on her face and her bright blue eyes.

"Umm," she said quietly while blushing like crazy.

"Oh sorry." I said quite embarassed knowing I had just spent like 2 solid minuits staring at her.

We quietly walked out of her room.

"Didnt you hear me when I called for you?" Her mum asked.

"No. Some really famous people followed me." She said quietly.

"Who?" I asked.

"Some vine boys. Im sure you dont watch them." She said.

I nodded.

Bree's P.O.V

"Mom, that was really good. Im stuffed, but can i go to my room?" I asked.

"Yes dear" She said and went on back into her conversation with Mrs. Hemmings.

"Excuse me, Miss. Stephenson? Will you tell me where the bathroom is?" Luke asked politely.

"Oh, alright. Well, how about let Bree show you." She said.

Luke smiled.

"Thank you ma'am" he said.

We walked up the stairs.

"You have such a nice house." Luke said.

"Dad was a lawyer and moms a doctor." I said quietly.

"So she isnt around alot?" Luke asked.

I shook my head no.

He followed me all the way to the bathroom.

"Here you go" I said turning to go to my room.

I walked downstairs quickly.

"Bree, dear, why dont you go change and help me and Liz get the Christmas decorations out? She has offered to help us." My mom said.

"Ok I will." I said walking up the stairs.

I bumped into Luke.

"Sorry" I said keeping my head down.

He put his fingers under my chin and lifted my head up.

"Perfect." He whispered.

I walked past him and went to my room.

I put on some random shorts and a shirt.

"Mom, coach said I have practice on the 20th and 21st. Thats our last practices before the new year." I said going downstairs to my mom.

"Alright." She replied.

"What are you practicing?" Liz asked.

"Cheer." I replied.

"She is on the Cali Smoed team. They have won worlds a couple of times." My mom explained.

"Luke, Bree, go downstairs and get some boxes. Bree, you know where your tree is. Go get it and you two can put it up." My mom said.

Luke followed me downstairs.

"So, cheer? Wow" He said.

"Yeah." I said.

Liz's P.O.V (yes, Liz's P.O.V)

My son has a crush on this girl, Bree Stephenson. Im frieends with her mom. I hear him all the time talking to his friends about how much he likes her. And now, were at their house. He is acting pretty shy.

Bree's P.O.V

"You dont have to help me Luke" I said.

"I want to." He smiled handing me a box of ornaments.

I forced a smile.

"Alright." I whispered walking up the stairs.

He grabbed a box and followed me.

"She's so beautiful and I tell her everyday" Luke sang.

"When I see your face. Theres not a thing that I would change. Becouse your amazing, just the way you are. And when you smile, the whole world stops and stares for a while. Cuz girl your amazing. Just the way you are." He sang.

"Your a really good singer." I said.

He smiled.

"Really?" He asked.

I nodded walking in my room.

"Sing with me" he stopped me.

"Why?" I asked.

"Becouse. I want to sing woth you for some odd reason." He smiled.

"Well what are we singing?" I asked.

"Since its Christmas, mabey we could sing a Christmas song. How about Baby Its Cold Outside?" He asked.

"Alright" i said.

I began to sing the song. His eyes bugged.

"Whats wrong? I know im a tertible singer." I said.

"No no, its the opposite. Your voice is amazing" he smiled.

I started back up with the singing.

"I really cant stay"

"Baby ist cold out side"

We sang.

A couple minuits later, my mom and Liz walked upstairs to my room. We were still attempting at putting the tree together.

"Wow" My mom said.

"You two sound great together" Liz said.

"Thanks" we said at the same time not stopping what we were doing.

The two women just laughed and walked back downstairs.

"So, I've heard about the New Years thing. Are you excited?" Luke smiled.

"What New Years thing?" I asked.

"Your mom didnt tell you? Me, my mum and you and your mum are going on a trip. You didnt know? Were going to New York to see the ball drop live." Luke smiled ear to ear.

"Thats across the counrty." I said quietly.

"Yeah it is. Are you excited?" Luke asked.

"Yeah I guess so" I smiled.

We finished my tree in no time.

We walked downstaors to find my mom and Lukes mom looking confused.

"Whats wrong?" Luke asked.

"The star. We have no one to put it on the tree" Liz said.

Luke stood up straight. Dang. Like for real, he is TALL.

"What about Luke?" My mom asked.

Liz nodded handing her son the star. He placed it on the top of the tree.

"So, Bree. We have to tell you some BIG news." My mom said sitting on the couch.

Lukes mom sat by her. I walked over to the smaller couch and Luke followed and sat on me.

"Can I help you honey?" I said.

He smiled.

"Honey? Thats so cute" he said.

I blushed.

"I didnt mean to. I call everyone honey. Im sorry" I said blushing more.

"Its fine. I meant it. Its cute" He laughed.

"So, Luke. Did you tell her?" My mom asked.

"Yes." Luke said.

"Were going to have so much fun. Right Bree?" My mom asked.

"Yep. Tons of fun" I said sarcasticaly.
