Chapter 1

Loren was sitting at the coffee shop on her break when Mel, he best friend walked in.

"You know what today is?"

"Buy one donut get one free day?" Loren smiled.

"Oh come on, I know you're excited about you're 3 month anniversary with Cam!"

Loren smiled, "He's taking me out to dinner at 6, and then we're going to the fair.""Ugh so romantic. Make sure you pay the guy to stop the Ferris wheel when you guys are at the top."

Loren laughed, "I just can't believe it's been 3 months!"

"I know I thought you would have dumped him for Eddie when Eddie dumped Chloe."

"No, Eddie and I are just friends.""Hard to believe we tried to sneak into his concert"

"I know we were crazy fan girls weren't we?"

They laughed and talked until Adam came in and Loren had to go back to work. About an hour later Loren was making herself a coffee to go when Cam scared her.

"HEY!" he said creeping up behind her. She spilled her, thankfully iced, coffee down her shirt and pants, ruining them completely.


"Sorry babe." He kissed her as she came out from behind the counter getting ready to end her shift.

"What's up?"

"Just wanted to be positive we're on after my practice."

"Wouldn't miss it for the world. I have to go change. But I'll see you after my session with Eddie"

"Alright see you then" Cam said as he walked Loren to her car.

She started the car and texted Eddie. 'Gonna be a little late. I have to change my clothes.'

She drove home to an empty house. Her mom left her a note on the wall.

'Out with Don. Be gone till late xoxox Mom'

Loren sneered. She hated her mom dating Don Masters. Not only because he is Adriana's dad but because she could tell there was something not right with him. He's a player, she can feel it. She crumpled the paper and threw it in the trash. Her phone vibrated, Eddie texted her back. 'Hurry here; songwriting isn't fun unless you're here '

She smiled and got ready to meet Eddie.


Eddie was sitting at his and Loren's spot. They tried writing songs in a studio, at the club and everywhere really but here is where their minds really click. They've written 3 songs now and Eddie was ecstatic. With Loren's help, his record label was getting what they wanted and he was having fun writing songs. He saw her walk up with foam cooler. That was their deal; he brings the guitar, she brings the food. He quickly checked his breath and stood up to take the cooler from her.

"Hey Loren," he said hugging her, "have fun at work?"

"Yeah because I love dealing with stuck up rich kids from school and smelling like coffee all the time." They laughed.

"You smell fine. Ready to get started?"

"Yeah, but I have to leave early today." She said sitting down.

"What why?"

"Well, tonight is my 3 month anniversary with Cam."

"Oh, okay." He didn't know why but this really bothered him. He didn't like Cam. Something about him just rubbed him the wrong way and he would be damned to see him hurt Loren.

For the next few hours they laughed and wrote lyrics to their new song. It seemed like 10 minutes went by when Melissa called Loren.

"Hey Mel you're on speaker"


"I'm songwriting with Eddie why?"

"It's 5:00! You were supposed to be here half an hour ago!"

"Shit, I'll be there in 5 minutes."

She hung up the phone and picked up her stuff, "This was fun Eddie. See you tomorrow?"

"Yeah have fun on your date." He said with a half smile. He watched her walk away and wished she would stay. He looked out and saw the sun start to set.

'Why does this bother me so much?' he thought.

He picked up his car keys and drove to his dad's club. He needed to talk to someone.

"Hey Eddie" Max said ad Eddie walked in the door.

"Hey, pop" Eddie said, "I need to talk to you." With that Eddie said everything on his mind. When he was finished his dad was smiling at him with an eyebrow raised.

"Son, you're jealous" Max said.

"No dad, she's just a friend."

"Please, you always talk about her, want to spend time with her. You hate it when she's with any other guy. She's been there for you since you and Chloe broke up. It's normal that you developed feelings."

Eddies looked at his dad, "Shit" he said. His dad handed him a beer and his phone vibrated.

"Loren just tweeted a photo of her and Cameron at the top of the Ferris wheel." He said turning his phone off.

"Go home son, it's late." Max said putting a hand on Eddie's back. Eddie left the club and went home. He laid down in his bed and thought about what Max said. It was the complete truth.

'I can't try and take her from Cameron, she really likes him. But I'm better than that guy. He doesn't deserve her. No, she's happy I won't do this to her.' Eddie rolled onto his side and tried to fall asleep. 'Just keep your mouth shut, Duran' he told himself as he drifted into a dreamless sleep.
