Journey with me



Chapter 11

Lucas sits on my bed with his homework spread out everywhere.

"Number 2 is..... 6,567=7•y+608> 457." He says marking it down in his book.

I mark it down still wondering about the thing Oliver had said the other day. And Lucas acting all secretive.

He looks up from his workbook and I see him out of the corner of my eye studying me. "Are you okay?" He asks me moving his stuff aside.

I look up startled "yea, I'm just thinking." I say forcing a smile.

He shuts his book. "Want to tell me what your thinking about?" He asks me scooting closer to me.

"Yes. I want to know what you have been so uptight about lately. I want to know why your so secretive when Kenzie talks to me." I say all in one breathe.

He sighs and stretches his fingers through is hair, "Em. I'm not ready to tell you." He says frankly.

"Well when will you be?" I say exasperated at him.

"You have got to be patient with me! I don't know when I'll be ready, but you just have to trust me." He says.

I get up off of my bed and I stroll around the room, "Lucas... it's just..this had been on my mind for the last couple of days and o want to know." I say turning to look back at him.

"I can't. It might ruin our friendship." He says to me.

"What do you mean?" I ask him as he pulls me in for a hug. I stare out blankly smelling his familiar scent I have known for years.

"I'll tell you when I'm ready." He says to me.

He gathers up his things and swings his backpack over his shoulder "wanna come to the movies tomorrow? Meg, Lindsay and Oliver are gonna be there too." He says to me brushing his bad out of his eyes.

"In busy tomorrow. Sorry." I say frowning.

His smile disappears but he quickly replaces it with another one "it's okay. I'll see you on Monday. Bye." He says leaving my room.

"Bye." I say shutting the door behind him.

I flunk on my bed and I rethink the last hour and somehow it brings a slight smile to me face.
