A/N: I CAN START ANOTHER STORY IF I WANT TO, RIGHT? xD Well, Im in a pretty upsetting mood cuz of drama and stuff, so I wanted to make a depressing sort of story, ya kno? I kno lots of you are thinking "y u so dumb cuz Luke isnt depressed herp derpppp" or something like that lol, but ik hes not, Gill would be better but I dont see Luna as the type to hurt him as badly as Selena did (which you will find out soon ^^) anyways, since I like happy stories, this one probly wont be super long like my other one (which you should check out if you havent already :D) now, on to depressing stories, yay! I mean, *sulk* xD
I woke up feeling the same as I do every other day: useless. I've felt like this ever since Selena left me 3 months ago, but it wouldn't be depressing me for this long if she didn't do what she did.
"Luke, get up - we have work to get done!" I heard my dad, Dale, call out. I checked the time, it was 10:32. Whatever... I thought as I got out of bed, heading to my closet to get dressed and tie on my favorite bandana.
As I was brushing my teeth, I heard a knock on the door. "Who is it?" I mumbled, still brushing my teeth. "It's Bo. Dale wanted me to come check up on you and make sure that you heard him." Bo said.
I walked out of the bathroom to show him I was alright. "Good as ever." I said sarcastically. Bo just rolled his eyes. "I remember when you used to be funny..." Bo said, walking back into the kitchen/living room. I just shrugged my shoulders and followed.
"Ah, there you are, Luke." Dale said, hanging up the phone as I walked into the main lobby. "What'd you need?" I asked, putting my hands in my pockets and yawning.
"A farmer is moving to the Island today. Gill is showing her around now, but do you remember where we built that one house for you and...well, her?" He asked. He was talking about Selena, but I just nodded. That was the house we were supposed to move into together.
"Go with Bo to fix it up and meet her. And don't be so depressed around her, I don't want her to feel like she did something wrong." Dale explained. I had nothing else better to do, so I went to grab my axe and walked outside.
"Wait for me, Luke!" Bo called out, running towards me with his hammer. Ugh, why'd he have to come? I thought to myself, continuing to walk toward Clarinet District.
"What do you think she's like?" Bo asked, trying to make conversation. I just shrugged my shoulders; I wasn't really in the mood to talk. I heard Bo sigh, but he continued to rant about the new farmer girl.
I was daydreaming about that auburn-haired, tall, tan, Toucan dancer that stole my heart but obviously didn't return the feelings. Bo was still talking, and I felt bad for ignoring him, so I just started to smile and nod.
"Luke, you have no idea what I'm talking about, huh?" Bo said. "Yup." I said honestly. He chuckled, then got a serious look on his face. "Luke, get over her. She's a terrible person, and you're great. You're better off without her." Bo said. I smiled at him, happy that someone actually cared.
"Thanks man, you're one of the few that actually care about me." I admitted. Bo got a silly grin on his face. "Anytime! Come to me if you ever need anything, ok?" Bo said. I nodded, then we continued walking. Sure, people asked every now and then how I was, but I could tell that they genuinely didn't want to hear my problems.
"Well, here it is." Bo said, putting down his hammer. I stopped walking and stared at the house that was supposed to belong to me and Selena. "Holy crap..." I muttered. The house was really worn-out, even some planks on the walls were missing!
"This house sure is messed up. I guess that's what happens when you don't treat it right, huh?" Bo said, getting a closer look at the damage. "Yea." I said. Just like me...
"Luke, what happened here!" A familiar snobby voice said. I turned around to see Gill walking towards me with a young brunette. She had short spiky hair and a small body, but with some meat on her bones. Gill was wearing plaid shorts and a blue sweater vest with a lighter colored long-sleeved blue shirt underneath. The farmer girl was wearing a casual yellow outfit.
"It was vacant and nobody thought about fixing it up." Bo said, walking up to us. I just nodded in agreement, staring at the unknown farmer girl. She was pretty cute, I had to admit.
"Well, why didn't you fix it up when we figured out that we had a new resident?" Gill scolded, gesturing towards the farmer girl. "I have a name, Gill." She said in a playful sarcastic tone. Bo and I chuckled at her outburst.
"Hi, I'm Angela. Don't worry about the house, I can stay at the Inn until you fix it up." She said, smiling. I smiled and nodded. Bo smiled too, then looked at Gill. "See? We have time!" He said. Angela giggled, and Gill rolled his eyes.
"Fine, but get it done quickly." Gill said. I heard a ringing noise, then saw Gill reaching to his pocket and taking out a iPhone. "Yes, father?" Gill said. He nodded, made some 'uh-huh' noises, then smiled. "No problem, I'll head back now." He said, hanging up.
"I have business to attend to. Can you 2 give Angela a tour of the Garmon Mines District?" Gill asked. We both nodded, then he walked away. "Bye Gill!" Angela called out, as he replied with a wave.
"So, I have a question!" She said in a cheerful tone. "Um, yes?" I asked. I didn't expect her to be so...bubbly. "Can you build me a barn too? This guy Cain promised me a baby cow, and I said I couldn't accept yet since I don't have a place to put her." She said.
Bo looked at me with a 'why not?' expression, so I just shrugged and nodded. "Sure, we'll start on one after we finish the house." I said. She smiled and nodded, then took out her phone. "What's your names and numbers?" She asked, smiling.
"Well, I'm Bo." Bo said. She typed his name in her phone, then typed his number as he read it to her. "You?" She asked, looking at me with big light-brown eyes. "Luke." I said, then telling her my number. She added me in there too, then put her phone in her pocket.
"Ok, so on with the tour!" Angela said, marching towards some random direction. "Um, Angela?" Bo said. "Call me Angie!" She said, continuing to walk aimlessly. "Ok. Angie, Garmon Mines is this way." He said, pointing the other direction.
She had a 'oh...' look on her face, but just laughed it off then walked towards us. "Sorry, I'm a newbie." She said. We both chuckled, then led her to the Garmon Mines.
The first shop we passed was our house/work building. "This is where we work - Cornet Carpenters." Bo said, pointing towards the building. Angela's face lit up, then turned towards us.
"Can we go inside?" She asked excitedly. I looked at Bo then nodded, so he gestured her into the building as I followed. "Welcome!" Dale said, petting Boss on the couch. "Doggie!" She exclaimed, running up to him.
"How cute! What breed is he?" She asked, petting his neck. "Pyreneese." Dale replied. I watched as she played with Boss, laughing as he licked her face. Watching her so full of life and being so happy made me smile, something I haven't done in awhile.
"Get down, boy!" Bo said, trying to get Boss off her. He got of her, then went back on the couch and rest his head on Dale's lap. Angela got up, brushed herself off, then took my dad's hand to shake it.
"I'm Angela, but you can call me Angie." She said smiling. "I'm Dale, Luke's father." He said, smiling back. She looked at me, then back him. "Oh, I see it now!" She said, giggling. He chuckled, then they started talking about animals or something.
"Hey," Bo said to me. "What do you think of her?" He asked, bobbing his head towards her. I just shrugged my shoulders and smirked. "She's interesting." I said. Bo chuckled, then told her we had to get on with the tour.
"Bye Dale!" She said as we walked out the door. "You're dad seems really nice." Angela said, smiling. "Yea, he's pretty cool." I said smiling back. She giggled, then turned to Bo. "Where to now?" She asked. He pointed at the General Store, so we headed there next.
"Hi there!" Barbara greeted as we walked in. "Hey Barbara, this is our friend Angela. She's new here." Bo introduced. Angela smiled, then walked up to shake her hand. "If it's easier to remember, call me Angie." She said smiling. Barbara nodded and smiled back.
"Hey Phoebe, come out here!" She called out. "One sec mom!" Phoebe called back. "She's always studying rocks and ores." Barbara explained to Angela. She giggled, then smiled at her. "That sounds so cool!" She said.
Sooner then later, Phoebe came out with dust on her clothes and coal all over her hands. "Hey mom, what'd you need?" She asked, wiping her hands on her pants. Barbara gestured towards Angela.
"This is Angie, the new girl I was telling you about." She explained. Phoebe walked up to her and smiled. "As you probly know, I'm Phoebe. I would shake your hand, but..." Phoebe said, looking at her filthy hands. Angela giggled. "It's ok, nice to meet you!" She exclaimed.
After some small talk, we said our goodbyes and continued on with the tour. The next stop was the Accessory Store, where we saw Chloe outside playing with Owen. "Hi Bo!" Chloe said, running up to Bo and giving him a hug.
"Hey Chloe." He said, smiling. "Who's that?" Angela whispered, referring to Chloe and Owen. "The big guy with red hair is Owen, and the little girl hugging Bo is his cousin." I explained. She made a 'ah' sound, then walked up to Chloe.
"Hi there! I'm Angela, but call me Angie." She introduced. Chloe looked up to Bo to see if it was ok to talk to her, which Bo replied with a nod. "Hi Angie! I'm Chloe!" Chloe exclaimed. Angela giggled, then they started talking about girly stuff.
"Hey Luke." Owen said, bringing me into a bro-hug. "Hey man." I said, hugging back. "What's she like?" Owen asked, referring to Angela. "She's pretty cool." I said, shrugging. I only knew her for a day, so I couldn't really say anything more about her.
"She's pretty." Owen said, nudging me. I brushed him off. "You have Kathy, man." I said jokingly. He laughed, which made Angela turn around to see what we were laughing about. "What's so funny?" She asked, causing us to laugh louder.
"Nothing. My name's Owen, nice to meet ya." Owen said, smiling. Angela smiled back, then tuned to me. "Where to next?" She asked. I chuckled. She's so amusing. "Well, there's the Blacksmith right over there but Owen and Chloe are basically the only people there besides Ramsey." I said, turning to Owen.
"Where is he, by the way?" I asked, wondering why he wasn't outside with Chloe and him. "He's with Mira at the Animal Festival. I was gonna go there with Chloe since Kathy asked me to go with her, but then we ran into you guys." He said.
"Is Julius running the shop then?" Bo asked. Owen chuckled, then shook his head. "That guy can't run the shop to save his life. She closes it when she's out, so he goes to Sonata's." He explained.
"Is Julius the cross-dresser who's dating that shy girl Candace?" Angela asked out of the blue. We all laughed at her description of Julius, but I nodded. "That's him." I said, smiling. I like feeling not-depressed...whenever I'm around her, I feel like there's nothing wrong in this world. I thought, watching her talk to Bo.
"So, is the tour done?" She asked, ending my thinking. "Um, yea, I guess so." I said, looking at Bo. He shrugged his shoulders. "Can we go to that Animal Festival then?" Angela asked. Bo nodded, then smiled. "Sure." He said, starting to walk away.
I was about to follow them until Owen grabbed my arm. "What's up?" I asked, turning towards him. "Luke, are you coming?" Angela asked, a bit ahead of me. "Yea, but go on ahead I'll catch up." I called out. They nodded, then continued walking.
"Are you ok?" Owen asked, letting go of my arm. I gave him a confused look. "You're not acting depressed." He said. "Oh..." I said softly. "Did you finally get over it, or is it her?" He asked, referring to Angela.
"I honestly don't know." I answered, sighing again. I smiled slightly, then looked in the direction Angela was a moment ago. "But I'm glad that whatever it is, it's starting to make me feel better."
