April 3rd

*Michael's POV*

*A Few Days Later*

Today has been quite interesting if I do say so myself. Earlier I was sitting on the couch scrolling through Twitter and I had found Luke's account and followed him. Minutes later he followed me back and my heart had skipped a beat. Ever since the Hot Topic incident 4 days ago I haven't gone to Starbucks to try to see him just because I figured it'd be awkward.

Now I'm sitting on the couch watching Orange Is The New Black and stuffing my face with popcorn. My phone which was on the table in front of me, made the noise it makes when I have a new Twitter notification. I paused the TV and picked up my phone to read the little message on my lock screen.

"Message from @Luke5SOS: Hey I'm pretty sure this is the same cute Michael whom I had a conversation with at Hot Topic the other day??"

"Did he really just call me cute?" I thought to myself both surprised and slightly confused.

I unlocked my phone while thinking about how I would reply considering I doubt he actually thinks I'm cute.

To @Luke5SOS: If you mean the Michael who tripped and almost killed you on my way down then yeah that's me.

From @Luke5SOS: You didn't almost kill me on the way down I told you it's fine.

To @Luke5SOS: If you say so.

From @Luke5SOS: Anyway if you aren't busy I was wondering if you could come by Starbucks tomorrow during my break and we could talk.

To @Luke5SOS: Talk?

From @Luke5SOS: I don't know, just get to know each other better I guess?

To @Luke5SOS: That's starting to sound like a date...

From @Luke5SOS: If you want a date, I'll give you a date.

To @Luke5SOS: I wouldn't mind.

From @Luke5SOS: Okay but like we have a better connection than my internet right now so whats your number...?

To @Luke5SOS: That was clever wow where'd you find that one? iFunny?

From @Luke5SOS: No. ok maybe. IT DoEsN'T MATteR JUSt QuiT MAKing ME SUFfEr AND givE Me yOUR NuMbER.

Moments after I sent Luke my number I received a text from none other than Luke.

From Unknown: Hey cutie ;)

I added him as a contact under 'Lukey' because it sounds cute and y'know, the little crush I had on him.

{Bold- Michael} {Italic- Luke}

- Quit calling me cute you dork :p

Why you're adorable!

- StoP it.

NeVER.

- ugH

From Lukey: Sooooo, can you come visit me during my break?

- I have work tomorrow but depends... when is your break?

12:25-12:55pm

- Yeah I can stop by, my lunch is around that time too.

Perfect. Looking forward to seeing you :)

Yeah you too :))

How was I so in love with someone I hardly know?

*The Next Day*

*Luke's POV*

The day seemed like it was going by slower than ever. Minutes seemed like hours and I felt like the clock was never going to reach 12:25. I tried to keep myself from looking at the clock hoping it would make the time go faster but it didn't help very much. I just couldn't wait to see Michael. I wanted to take him to my place but I'm afraid the boys will say something they shouldn't. I feel terrible for keeping a secret from him but I don't want to hurt anybody.

~

We had gotten so busy that I didn't realize it was already 12:15.

"Luke if you want I can take over and you can go on your break early." Said Rachel while preparing somebody's coffee next to me.

She's worked here longer than I have and she's the only friend I've made since working here.

"I only have 10 minutes left I think I can manage but thank you anyways." I said declining her offer as much as I wanted to accept it.

"Luke you've looked super anxious all morning just go do whatever you gotta do. If boss asks I'll make something up." She said smiling.

"Thank you. You're the best." I said hugging her before speed walking to the bathroom.

Once in the bathroom, I checked my hair and made sure I looked at least decent.

Even though this wasn't an actual date I still thought it was a little important mostly because I don't really know him and I really wanted to make a good first/third impression on him. The fact that I really just thought up the term "third impression" already gives me a feeling this isn't gonna go well.

How am I so in love with a stranger?

~

As the minutes went by I was becoming more and more nervous. My phone vibrated in my pocket and I quickly took it out and saw the message was from Michael.

From Michael: Hey I'm on my way over. Sorry I'm a little late, I lost track of time.

To Michael: It's okay :) it's only 12:29 anyways. We still have time.

After that I didn't get a reply so I assume he was driving. I was scratching at the wristband I was wearing, I tend to do that when i'm nervous. Right now the crowd inside was starting to clear which was nice. I decided to wait outside for him since it was a really nice day and there was a lot less people out here.

I had zoned out and I was just staring at my shoes until I heard a voice come from beside me.

"Hey stranger."

I turned to see Michael smiling down at me. I got up from my seat and said greeted him.

Honestly it was so awkward I didn't think I should hug him so I just had my hands buried in my pockets wow this already isn't going well.

"Do you want to go inside or stay out here? Do you want anything?" I already felt like I couldn't shut up.

"Outside is okay and I don't want anything but thank you." He said smiling.

"So what should we talk about to get to know each other better?" He asked.

"We could play 20 questions." I responded.

"I suck at 20 questions." He said laughing.

"C'mon I'll ask all the questions, all you have to do is answer." I said smiling at him.

"Okay fine." He said while sitting down.

~

"Okay last question, favorite show on Netflix?" I asked Michael.

"Hmmmm, OH UH Orange Is The New Black." He said excitedly.

"I've never watched that." I said.

"YOU WHAT." He yelled confused.

"I've never seen it." I said awkwardly.

"Okay you're coming over and we're watching it." He said in a jokingly strict way.

"Sounds great. When?" I asked curiously.

"Well what time do you get off work?" He asked.

"Six thirty." I replied frowning a bit.

"Are you free after then?" Michael asked.

"Of course." I responded smiling.

"Luke your break was over 5 minutes ago, get back to work." I heard my boss say from the door.

"Sorry sir I lost track of time, I'll be right in." I said before turning back toward the gorgeous boy in front of me.

"Well I gotta go but I'm looking forward to seeing you later." I smiled and got up from my seat.

"I'll text you my address later and we can just meet at my house." He said happily.

"Okay." I smiled. "I already miss you." I added.

"Oh shut it." He laughed while getting in his car.

I walked back inside and thought about what I had just agreed to. I'm going to be having a Netflix marathon with Michael in HIS house TONIGHT.

If I'm being honest, I can't wait.

~

From Michael: My address is 726 Cerro Gordo St. :) Do you know where that is?

- Yeah me and my band only live a couple blocks away.

From Michael: Oh cool. So see yah tonight.

- See yah

*Michael's POV*

I had gotten off work at 5:30 so I had an extra hour or so before Luke came over. I made a quick stop at the store because I was running low on drinks and a few other things. Afterwards I went home and just cleaned the place up a bit and made sure the house looked okay. I figured if Luke gets hungry we can just order a pizza or something because I'm not very good at making anything. I hope maybe one day I could practice and eventually get to make dinner for him.

I am so in love with Luke.

Earlier when we met up the time flew by and before I knew it we were both back to work. I don't understand why I miss him so much and how I could love him so much. I'm basically letting a stranger into my house. I'm not even completely sure that he likes me in the way I like him! He's probably straight anyway. He's so gorgeous though I mean I wouldn't be surprised if he had girls all over him everywhere he went.

"He's never gonna love you Michael." Said the voice in my head that simply wouldn't go away.

Maybe this was a bad idea. How was inviting Luke over to my house ever going to end well.

Right when I was about to call Cayla and ask her for advice, the doorbell rang. I guess I'd been thinking and cleaning a lot longer than I thought. I opened the door to a happy and smiley Luke.

"Hey, come on in." I said.

"Nice place." He said after walking in and looking around a bit.

"Than-" I was cut off by Bo running and jumping up on Luke.

"Bo down." I said strictly.

He jumped down and sat.

"Luke this is Bo and Bo this is Luke." I said chuckling.

"Hi boy, you're a real cutie just like your owner." He said looking up at me and giggling.

Luke giggling had just became my favorite sound in the world.

He continued making kissy faces at Bo and petting him while I walked back to the kitchen.

"Hey Luke you hungry?" I asked.

"Yeah I'm starving." He responded.

"Does pizza sound okay?" I asked.

"Pizza sounds great." He said.

~

While we waited for the pizza we listened to music and basically had a two person dance party. We sang at the top of our lungs and just had fun.

As we plopped down on the couch sometime later we were both breathing heavy and laughing.

"That was the most active I've ever been in my entire life." Said Luke laughing.

I looked at him and just stared at him. His eyes are so beautiful and he himself is so beautiful. He had been looking at the ceiling and his breathing was finally starting to steady itself. He turned his head to look at me and we both got lost in each other's eyes. We were already sitting only inches away from each other but somehow Luke managed to scoot close enough to where we were no longer apart at all.

"You're so beautiful." I whispered.

"You're even more beautiful." He said back quietly before leaning in more towards me.

We both leaned in to where our lips were barely touching and right when I was about to actually move in and kiss him, the doorbell rang.

"Ugh." I groaned while getting up to open the door.

Of course it was the pizza man. I quickly payed him, took the pizza, and thanked him before closing the door and hurrying back to the couch. I dropped the pizza on the coffee table and sat back in my spot insanely close to Luke.

"The pizza can wait." I said before leaning in and kissing Luke.

Soon enough I was laying on my back and Luke was on top of me. That one kiss may have kinda led to a makeout session. I felt like I'd already known Luke for so many years and in reality I hardly knew him at all. At the moment my brain didn't seem to care about that too much. All I wanted was to be able to remember what it feels like to kiss Luke in case I never get to experience it again.

I hope more than anything, that I get to experience it again.

After a while Luke pulled away and spoke, "Babe as much as I already love kissing you, i'm starving and the smell of pizza isn't helping. Can we please eat?"

Did he just call me babe?

"Of course." I told him.

We both sat back up and while Luke went to get some plates, I turned the tv on and hooked up my laptop so it was on the big screen. Once Luke came back we started eating and watching Netflix. This night honestly couldn't get any better.

~

Once we had both finished eating we just snuggled up on the couch and watched the show together. After about 8 episodes I heard quiet snoring coming from Luke, I guess he had fallen asleep. I looked at the clock I had on the wall and it was 3:17AM.

"Luke, wake up." I said quietly.

"Hmm" He groaned while moving a bit.

"It's 3am, do you wanna stay here for the night?" I asked.

"Mmmhm." He mumbled.

I got up off the couch and picked him up and carried him to my bedroom and placed him on the bed. I figured I could just sleep on the couch so he could have the bed to himself.

"I'll be on the couch if you need anything." I told him even though he was probably already asleep.

I pulled the covers up to his shoulders and walked to the door. I turned the light off and went back to the living-room to set up my bed for the night. I went to the closet in the hallway and got out some blankets and an extra pillow I kept in there. As I was putting the blankets on the couch I heard footsteps behind me. I turned around to see Luke frowning behind me.

"Luke? What's wrong?" I asked while walking towards him.

"I want you to sleep in the bed too. I want to cuddle with you and fall asleep in your arms." He said while playing with the ring on his finger.

"I came out here because I figure you'd be uncomfortable sleeping in the same bed as me." I replied.

He shook his head.

"Okay we can both sleep in the bed, let me just put this stuff back in the closet then I'll be in there." I said before kissing him on the cheek.

"Okay." He said smiling.

As I walked down the hall to put the blankets back Luke called me.

"Babe?"

"Yeah?"

"Do you care if I sleep in only my boxers?"

Oh my god is this actually happening?

"Go for it, I sleep in only my boxers too." I said letting out a small laugh.

*Luke's POV*

As I undressed I just thought of how wrong this is. I'm keeping a secret from him and if he finds out and I hurt him, I'm never going to be able to forgive myself. I grabbed my phone which had magically appeared on the nightstand and I got into bed. I scrolled through Twitter a little bit while I waited for Michael to come to bed.

Soon enough I felt the bed move beside me and an arm wrap around my waist. I put my phone back on the night stand and scooted more towards Michael so his chest was against my back.

"Goodnight Michael." I said smiling even though he couldn't see me.

"Goodnight Luke." He said back.

And with that I fell asleep in his arms and I couldn't be happier.
