He's kinda perfect

Ellie Greene was forced to uproot her whole life and move to Sydney, Australia, and for what? So her and her family can go live with her moms new boyfriend. She leaves her family, friends, and her boyfriend to go live with a man who is conceded, selfish as hell, and just a down right asshole.
Ellie told herself that no one is as good a her boyfriend Adam, but than she finds herself falling for a boy who shouldn't even matter. Who shouldn't even had noticed her.
But out of her getting too attached she finds herself in a predicament that could change her life.

Hey :) this is my first time posting a story I've written and idk if u guys will like it but I hope u do


7. "Are you asking me out?"

Luke and I had been driving around so long I lost track of time. I looked at the clock and it said it was nine-thirty, it really doesn't feel like it.

He pulled into the beach parking lot and pulled over "So....you wanna tell me what Adam massaged you" Luke said with a look like he was going to murder Adam.

"How'd you know it was him?" I told him it was Lillian.

"Because I saw the look on your face. You don't make that look when your talking to Lillian. That look like your totally crushed and about to cry" How does he know me so well already?

"It's nothing, I'm fine" What he doesn't know won't hurt him.

"Ell, don't do that, what did he say?" I just want to know why he cares so much.

"I told you, it's nothing" I said, putting my phone in my pocket.

"Fine, if it's nothing than you can tell me" He gave me that 'you just lost' look.

"Fine, take it" I tossed my phone onto his lap. He started looking through and I could tell he was pissed right off.

"How can you just sit back and let him say all this stuff to you? Knowing you, I thought you would have bitched him out, ripped his head off and sent it to him in the mail. He shouldn't be able to treat you like this" I knew he'd say something like that, that's why I didn't tell him. The sad thing is, I would have done what he said, but I'm just so done right now that I can't even fight back.

I shouldn't let him get away with telling me everything I did "wrong", calling me every name under the sun, and telling me how much of a shitty person I am. He's been telling me so often now that I'm actually starting to believe it. All I could do was put my head down and cry.

"I didn't mean for you to cry, I'm sorry. I just can't stand the way he's treating you" I still can't even fathom why he cares.

"I'm not crying" I know it's total bullshit, but it's a habit.

"Nah, you eyes are just taking a piss" He gave me my phone back.

I laughed a little and wiped away my tears.

My phone went off again and I knew it was Adam, so I just ignored it, but Luke made me give it to him. He looked at it for a quick second and handed it back to me "I'm gonna kill him. He's not going to get away with calling you a 'fucking cunt' and telling you you're good for nothing. He really pisses me off"

"He pisses you off?" I'm the one it's directed toward.

"Ya, because he's dead wrong. He was lucky enough to be in the presence of you. You're like, the best person ever. You're wicked nice, but know when to be an ass, you're funny...and you're beautiful" He blushed a little after he said that "And you're everything that someone wants in a person" He's such a sap...and I love it. I may take compliments awkwardly, but I do like hearing once in a while that someone thinks of me like this.

"Really? I just thought I was a bitch" I finally looked over at him and he was staring at me again, but his cheeks were still wicked red.  

"No, you're not, you're actually a really awesome person" He went strait from awkward as hell to hello Mr. Confidence in like point two seconds.

All I know right now is that I need to forget Adam and move on, and Luke...he's kinda perfect for the job. I thought for the longest time that he was exactly like Adam, but now that I've seen his true colors, I know Luke is nothing like Adam.

"Can you do me a favor?" I asked.

"What is it?" He asked, still obviously pissed off.

"Close your eyes" I said, shifting in my seat to face him.

He did as I said and I figured I'd dive right in. I pressed my lips against his as hard as I could and I pressed his head into mine even more. I looked away for a moment to see his reaction, but he pulled me right back in.

It lasted another minuet and he pulled away "I know this might sound stupid, because we've only known each other for about three weeks, but I think I'm starting to fall in love with you. You're just so amazing and it would be friggin amazing if you could feel the same way about me. I know you're still trying to get over Adam and you loved him more than anything, but I can promise you that I can help you get over him, and that I can be patient with you about it" I cut him off before he could rant even more.

"Are you asking me out?" I asked, aghast.

"....Ya, but if you don't want to that's totally fine" He's just so damn cute when he's like this.

"Of course I do, I kissed you didn't I?" And I don't just go around kissing people, so if I kiss you, I mean it.

"Really?" He asked wide eyed.

"Ya, cause you're pretty awesome yourself" I pressed my forehead against his and looked into his eyes, which are gorgeous by the way. After a second I kissed him again, but softer.

And right on cue, my mom called me "Where are you?" She asked "Are you with Luke? Tell him I said hi"

"Oh, that's you're mom, let me see the phone" He smiled. So I did and he sounded like he was in a full on conversation. A minuet went by and it ended "Ok Mrs. Green, I will, bye" He handed me the phone "So, we can stay out until eleven" He smiled again...and did I mention I love it.

"Wow, she must really like you than, I've never been able to stay out that late. At least when she knows I'm with a guy" What is it with my family and him? I don't get why they like him so much.

"I guess I'm just a likable person" He said with a sly smile.

"I guess so" I leaned in and kissed him again.


The next few days went by and honestly....it was blissful. I haven't been this happy in a long time. Luke and I have been hanging out everyday, and I'm not gonna lie, I feel like I'm wicked fucking annoying, but he keeps insisting I'm not. 

I woke up to my ringtone blaring in my ear. I probably shouldn't put my phone right under my ear under my pillow.

Honestly, I'm too tired to even look at caller ID, so I just answered it "Hello?" I said in the groggiest voice ever.

"Wow, you sound like shit, haha" I could tell right away it was Luke.

"Thanks, haha, what's up?" I said, instantly lighting up.

"So me and the guys have an interview at two today" He said.

"Awesome, what channel?" I asked with a yawn.

"It's actually a youtube channel. They interview famous people a few times a month and they're all about celebrity gossip and stuff. I watched some of their videos and they're pretty funny, so we said why not?" He explained.

"Cool, where do you have to go though?" i asked.

"It's in Sydney, which is actually really convenient, because I was going to take you out on a date tonight" He said, trying to sound all cool about it.

"Oooo, where?" We haven't actually gone out on a real date, so this is pretty exciting.

"You're just going to have to wait and find out" I could tell he had a grin on his face.

"Oh come on! I need to know so I know if I should dress up or not" Not that I have any nice clothes though.

"It's not all that fancy, but I'll dress up if you do. I want to know what you look like all dressed up" I kind of want to know what he looks like all fancy too. "Alright, well I gotta go, I'll be there around six".

"Ok, but wait, what time is it?" Now that I'm awake I should probably know.


"Oh, shit, ok" I've never slept in this late. Why hasn't anyone woken me up to even tell me to eat?

"Wait, have you been asleep till now?" He seams as shocked as I am.

"Ya" I said, kind of embarrassed "I couldn't fall sleep last night" Which is true, I was up all night thinking of every possible thing I could do wrong to this relationship to make him leave.

"Ok, well it wouldn't be much better with me there, you wouldn't be sleeping at all" The innuendo was dripping out of his mouth.

"Smooth as fuck" I said laughing.

"Oh, I meant cause we'd be watching tv all night" God, I love him.

"Haha, that's ok too" He's definitely a million times better than Adam.

"Ok, well I really got to go" He said in a hurry.

"Ok, bye" I'm not about ready to say I love you to his face though.

"Bye beautiful" He said before hanging up.

I got right up and stormed downstairs. I saw everyone except Nate in the living room. "Why did no one wake me up" Mom doesn't even let me sleep in till ten.

"Sorry sweetie, I thought you were awake" She said, completely lost in her phone like one of us. The way she has been since she started dating Brett.

"No, you mean you forgot. You have never once let me sleep in and now all of a sudden you do. Shouldn't you have even told me to eat?" Every time I don't eat all day like this she tells me to eat, only because she doesn't want me to get back into my anorexia "phase" again.

"Yes, I forgot, I'm sorry" She snapped.

"Don't worry, she's only been texting her baby daddy all day" But don't worry Ellie, Nick will come to the rescue with the dumbest thing he could have said.

"You know what, why don't you two go out and stop being brats" She snapped at both of us.

"Fine" We both said in unison.

We both walked up to my room. He plopped down on my bed. "Don't worry, she kicked Nate out too. I don't even remember what he said anymore, but I think it had to do with Brett. Now he's at the neighbors. They have three daughters, fourteen, fifteen, and sixteen" Well we know who his next girlfriend is.

"Ohhh" I said laughing. I walked over to my dresser, picked out a decent enough outfit for now, and went into my bathroom to change.


We went down to the mall to the arcade again. I only suggested it so he couldn't freak out on me about my date tonight in public.

We went over and started playing air hockey "Hey, so umm, I kind of have a date tonight"

"What?! Where?!" He yelled, louder than I thought he would.

"I don't know, out to dinner somewhere" He's totally pissed.

"Ok, just know that if he hurts you or tries anything than I'll kill him" Wow, he's never this strait forward.



The next few hours went by and he was pissed the whole time. Even the walk home was silent. 

When we walked in the door I smelled dinner...stir fry. Goddammit, why did she have to make my favorite dinner tonight of all nights.

When I walked up to her I mentally prepared myself for a fit of rage "Hey Mom"


"Umm, I kind of have a date tonight. I was going to tell you before, but you kind of kicked me out" I was prepared for the worst, but she didn't yell at me, she looked like she was going to fan-girl.

"Where's he taking you?!" She really is fan-girling.

"I don't know, he just said he was taking me out to dinner and if I dress up he will" It's actually really sweet. I couldn't help but smile like an idiot.

"Oh my god! That's so cute. When's he picking you up?" I really can't believe she's not mad. Why are they all so mesmerized by him?

"Six" I looked at the clock above the sink and I hadn't realized it, but it's five-twenty-five "Shit! I got to get ready" 

I ran as fast as I could up to my room, turned the straightener on -I literally hate the way my hair waves- and went strait to the walk-in closet that Brett gave me. That's pretty much the only reason I like him right now to be honest.

"I would go with the skinny black cocktail dress" I think my heart just flew up into my throat.

"Holy shit Amanda, you scared me" She has a tendency to do this to me a lot. I think she gets a kick out of how easily I scare.

"Sorry, but I would go with that dress though. You might actually be the sexy one in the relationship" I've trained her well in the ways of the asshole.

"Ok, thanks dick" She's only thirteen, but she's almost at my level.

She just smiled "But seriously, I remember you looking really good in it"

"Ya, but that's the dress Adam got me" It wouldn't feel right to wear it for Luke.

"So, you never wore it for him anyway, you only tried it on" True, he never took me on a fancy date before. Now that I think about it, we've only been on like two dates the whole time we were together.

"Ok than, I will" I might as well actually wear it for someone.

I walked out of the room with it on and her jaw dropped to the floor.

"What?" I can't possibly look that good.

"Adam is stupid to have left you, you're gorgeous and way too good for him in every way possible" She can be nice when she wants to I guess.

"Do I really look that good?" I walked over to my full body mirror and was shocked as to how slimming it is, and it really highlights my curves "I guess I do" I probably looked like an idiot at how much I was smiling.

"I'm kind of glad Adam never got to see you in this. He doesn't deserve it" She said.

I didn't know how to respond so I just smiled at her.

She walked over to the closet and than handed me my black wedges "You should wear these, cause you don't ever wear them and they're wicked pretty"

"Ok, but my feet are gonna be killing me later on" So I grabbed my converse also.
