Chapter 10

“Hey there babe,” one guy in a purple collared shirt with the first couple buttons undone. “Let’s take you away from this guy.” Luke’s grasp tightened around my waist.

“I’m Ethan,” said a guy with a four o’clock shadow and a leather jacket on. He had a charcoal beanie on. “Let us get a round.” He grabbed my hand and pulled me towards the bar.

“Hey there handsome. It’s Lori,” a girl stuck out her hand for Luke. She had long straight blonde hair. Whatever she said next, I couldn’t hear because I was too far away from Luke.

“I should really get going.”
