New Girl

"Luke," I gasp for air. "We can't keep doing this. We have to tell him."
"Fine," he groans seductively. "But it's your funeral."

Libby's POV

I looked all around for Taylor. I couldn't find her anywhere. I turned around to ask Calum for help and ran straight into Luke.

"I'm so sorry." I didn't look up at him and just walk around him. I could feel his eyes on my back as I walked. I saw Calum and Taylor walking in together talking. I waited for them and we started walking to our lockers. We all walked to English together and I sat down. I heard Luke move his chair and I glanced up at him. He was looking at me curiously. He raised an eyebrow at me. He was going to pretend that nothing ever happened. Good strategy. I copied his look and added a smirk. He chuckled and turned away with a smirk on his face.

"You're in a good mood this morning." I noted.

"It's a good day. We are going to the beach after school. You coming?"

"I wasn't invited actually." I said politely.

"I'm inviting you."

"Okay we'll be there."

"We?"

"Taylor and I. You invite me, you invite her. It's a partnership." I raise my eyebrows at him daring him to challenge me. He just shrugs. 

"Alright class just start reading your book project books. This assignment will be due by midterms." I pull out my book and start reading. Luke grabs his own book. We read silently for about ten minutes until Luke rested his hand on my thigh. I casually swatted it off. He smirked and I continued to read. He put it there again and I shoved it off. He cracked again and shook his head. He set his hand there again and gave my thigh a light squeeze. It felt great but I am not going to be easy. I tried moving his hand and he just grabbed mine and held it. He interlocked our fingers and I tried to get out of it but he had a tight grip. He wasn't even reading anymore and sadly neither was I. 

"Luke." I whisper yelled to him. "Let go." He looked over at me with a huge grin on his face. Taylor turned around to see what all the commotion was about. She tried fighting a smile and couldn't resist and just laughed about it. She was about to tap Calum who was deep into her book and I motioned her not to. She nodded her head like she understood and with one last smile turned around and continued reading. 

"Lucas Robert Hemmings, back off." I said between clenched teeth. He was just ignoring me now. The bell finally rang and I was released. I grabbed my stuff and scurried off. I got to my locker and he went to his. Right next to mine. I opened my locker and he was leaning on his. I dropped all my stuff in and got ready for phys ed. He walked next to me and every once in awhile rested his hand on my lower back as if guiding me along. I got changed into my gym clothes and walked out to the center of the floor. We had basketball today. It was three on three. Luke, Mackenzie, and Ashton against me, Taylor, and Calum. I didn't really like gym as much since the first day of school. Mackenzie was always trying to screw me up and embarrass me. I just tried to avoid her and her minions. We had to start with a tip and I refused to let Calum do it even though he was six inches taller than me. I strode up to the center of our court and saw that they sent out Ashton. He was only four inches taller. I shook his hand and winked at him. Our refs, which were just some kids that didn't want to play, got in there positions and one threw up the ball. I felt like I was flying and I touched the ball and tipped it to Taylor. Thankfully she got it and started dribbling down the court. Ashton took her and Luke went on Calum so that left Mackenzie for me. I clapped for the ball and she passed it to me and I dribbled in for a layup. Midair, I felt two hands push me. 

Oh, shit. I thought. Not this again. 

I had one roll on the ground before I hit the bleachers hard. My head was spinning from hitting the ground and the bleachers. I tried to glare at her but I couldn't focus on one spot. I tried to stand and I fell straight over. Luke was right next to me, checking me over. I glanced up and saw Calum and Ashton literally holding Taylor back. The teacher came over and nodded me to the nurses office. I tried to stand and walk but I tripped immediately and fell. Luke chuckled and helped me up. 

"Just leave me here to die." I groaned. He let out a light laugh. I glanced back and saw the gym teacher trying to calm her down. Ashton lost his grip on her right arm for a second and she wrenched free and slapped Mackenzie straight across the face. Everyone was screaming and it was pure chaos. "I hate high school." I mumbled. We got into the hallway and Luke scooped me up into his arms like he did on the first day of school. 

"Set me down Luke. I can walk."

"Actually you can fall."

"I'll manage." He sets me down carefully and takes a step back. I stare at him and get dizzier by the second. Half of the reason is because of my head and the other half is because I'm taken away by him. His perfect hair, perfect body. I breathe it all in. He just stares right back at me and nods for me to walk. I talk one step and my eyes roll back in my head and I fall over. He takes one long stride and stops me from hitting the ground. 

"I told you so." He sighs. I just stick my tongue out at him. 

"Can I be serious for a second?" He nods his head slowly.

"I feel like I screwed up everyone's lives by coming here." The words caught in my throat. "Taylor and Mackenzie are at it more than ever and I'm just creating so many problems." I mumble out. 

"Taylor actually has been a lot nicer since you came here. And if you weren't here, Ashton and Calum wouldn't be restraining her. They did that for you so she wouldn't get suspended again."

"Again?"

"She's physically attacked Mackenzie multiple times."

"And she's nicer now?"

"She used to be a complete bitch to all of us. Now that your here she's actually giving us a chance." I nodded at him. I notice that he takes a wrong turn to the office.

"You took the wrong turn?" I look at him. He smirks.

"I know." I bite my lip and after another minute he sets me down in a dead end hallway. There aren't any cameras or anything and my breath catches in my throat. He grabs my wrists and presses them against the wall. He presses his forehead against mine. He looks into my eyes, hesitating. I lean in and he grins at me. He kisses my temple and leaves a trail of kisses until he gets to the left corner of my mouth. He then moves to the right corner and works up to the right temple. A quiet moan escapes my lips. His eyes are burning. Finally he takes a deep breath and his lips meet mine.
