**A Week Later**
I climb out of my car with Phoebe and Sophie and watch Sydney's car pull up into Luke's driveway. She and a short guy with blonde hair step out. Sydney waves to us,her arm stretched out above her head. Phoebe,Sophie,and I all give her a confused wave. Without any introductions,Sydney marches up to Luke's doorstep,everyone following her,and she rings the doorbell. Luke opens the door with Michael and Calum in the background. He invites us in with a puzzled face,which I'm assuming because of the mystery guy that none of us know,well,besides Sydney. So,Luke says his mom,Liz,ordered pizza for us,and lead us outside. His deck has a porch,with a diving board attached to it,which is above his pool. To be honest,I didn't even know he had a pool. Heck,I've never been to his house. "I hope we aren't swimming because I didn't bring a swimsuit." I comment and Ashton giggles. "So,who's this?" Luke asks,gesturing to the dude Sydney brought. "Oh! This is Ethan. Ethan,this is Luke,Phoebe,Ashton,Emily,Calum,Michael,and Sophie." Sydney points of each of us when she says our name. I wave. "Hi." Phoebe smiles. "Hey." Michael waves. "So,are you two dating?" Luke asks. Calum elbows me and whispers,"He's jealous." I nod,grinning. "Yeah,we are." Ethan replies. Luke nods. "Oh." Luke takes Sydney's hand and drags her near where the diving board is. "What's going on?" Sophie asks,confused. Michael shrugs. "I thought you liked me!" Luke says. "Yeah. Liked." Syd answers. They argue for awhile,leaving the rest of us in an awkward silence,watching them squabble. Then,Sydney pushes Luke off the diving board and into the pool. "Why'd you push him?" Ethan asks. "I didn't push him! He jumped!" Sydney says.
I'm surprised Luke actually let Sydney and Ethan stay after Sydney pushed him into the pool. I sit down in a lawn chair next to Michael. "Hey! You're apart of that cool band 2HopelessSkies!" He jokes. "Yeah,yeah." I say. Ashton sits in a chair beside mine. "Whatcha talkin' about?" He asks. "She's apart of that awesome band called 2HopelessSkies duh!" Michael basically screams. Ashton giggles. "Hey,look!" I point to Phoebe teaching Calum how to do a cartwheel. Michael laughs,as well as Ash. "They seem to get along really well." I say. "They kinda have too." Michael tells me. "What do you mean?" I ask as my eyes drift from Phoebe and Cal to Michael. "Well,he is teaching her the bass." Ashton answers. I laugh at myself. "Oh,right." I let my eyes wander around the backyard to find Sydney and Ethan talking on the porch,Sophie is watching Phoebe and Calum,and Luke is playing basketball with his brother,Jack. I stand up and leave Michael and Ashton to go hang out with Luke and Jack,because,why not? "Heyo,wanna play?" Luke asks,holding the ball in his hand. "I'm not good at basketball." I tell him. "Sure you are!" Jack replies,taking the ball. "Actually,I'm not good at any sport." I say,plainly. "Here," Jack says as he hands me the ball. "Try to shoot." I sigh and look down at the basketball in my hand. I get ready to throw it,but Luke just takes it away,laughing. "Hey!" I say,laughing. Jack rolls his eyes,laughing too.
