Chapter 3


"Gym later?" I ask through a mouthful of burger.

"Ya, sounds good." Dylan nods before taking a bite of his. I see Addison making her way over to us and I let out a sigh.

"What?" Dylan asks eyes darting around for the threat. I motion subtly over to Addison who is strutting past another group of boys swaying her hips more than necessary. Dylan lets out a long-suffering sigh too. I know, man.

Addison isn't ugly, far from it with long honey blonde hair and ice blue eyes and boobs big enough to fill your hands. But she's also attention hungry and disloyal. Thats two things I can't have in a girlfriend or even just for a night.

"Hey boys." She says in an irritating breathy voice. Also, she's god damn annoying.

"Hey." I say taking another bite and not paying her the attention she wants. Even Dylan just nods ignoring her too.

"Are you coming to the party this weekend?" She asks with a pout.

"Maybe." We probably will but if she knows for sure she'll start plotting.

"Well, I hope you can." She simpers before sashaying away. Dylan starts annoyingly swatting at my hand. I look over and I see what caught my best friend's attention. He has excellent taste.

A tiny curvy thing in a leather jacket. She looks like I could corrupt her in no time. Her tumble of black hair is tied back from her face revealing wide bottle green eyes and a pouty mouth that I want to bite.

A man in a suit leads her to a booth and I watch her order a burger. The girls from our school don't know how to eat. Yep. It's official, I want her.

The man with her leaves to go to the washroom. This is my chance. I'm just about to walk over and introduce myself when fucking Tyler Moore swaggers up to her table.

We watch as he says something to her and her eyebrow quirk up. Her smirk turns almost deadly it's hotter than hell. I watch as she turns to him and leans in to whisper something into his ear. I don't know what she said but Moore goes pale and backs away slowly from her.

"I think I'm in love." I mutter. I admit love is a strong word. But then I see Moore stop another guy from bothering her with a hurried shake of his head and I'm a goner. I need to know more about this girl.

I miss my chance when the guy comes back from the bathroom. He looks familiar but I can't place him. They look alike so he's probably her dad and not some sugar daddy. God I hope not.

We watch her smile when she gets her burger and I groan when she takes a big bite. She seems quiet the guy across from her does most of the talking while she nods and eats.

"Ok, we look like stalkers." I mumble to Dylan but I can't seem to take my eyes off her.

We stay and watch her when they finish up her dad leaves her again. Again, I'm thwarted but this time Kennedy slides in the booth across from her. I like Kennedy. She's cool. If she wasn't gay I would be after her.

She says something to my girl making her laugh. It's a beautiful sound. I suck in a breath and shift in my seat making Dylan chuckle.

"Ok, we gotta leave." He decides standing up. We make our way to the door with one last glance at my girl I catch her gaze. I nod once and leave. Hopefully I'll see her again.

Dylan and I make our way to our bikes and pull onto the road and head to the gym. My mind keeps wandering back to my girl. The look on her face when she scared Moore was the sexiest thing ever.

She looks so sweet but she might not be all she seems. I can't wait to find out.
