This first chapter starts after episode 153...some things that I just thought about during the day, and decided to turn them into a story.
"You know you're nothing like her, right?"
Eddie' words broke Loren's blank stare at his gorgeous face. She focused, and saw him lean in with his eyebrows raised slightly. His face wore his beautiful smile, making her heart jump a few beats. "Who?" she asked, confused.
"Chloe..." he replied, hesitant.
Eddie was replied to with a simple "Oh, right..." from Loren. She was getting tired of Chloe being brought up all the time. She thought after he took off, he would stop seeing her. He left because he wanted to stop thinking about her after all.
Loren ran a hand through her now longer hair and tilted her head slightly. She rested her chin in her palm, her elbow on the table, and sighed.
"Loren, that wasn't meant to bring her up again... I just love how unlike her you are. You are sweet, caring, beautiful, down to earth...and she was none of that. I thought Chloe was my type, but you are." Eddie sounded hurt, but Loren really didn't care anymore. He was so amazing; perfect for her. And it still shocked her that the big rock start thought she was good enough for him. But every day is something new with Chloe involved...
It's almost like he's still dating her... she thought. She pushed her chair back and stood, Eddie matching quickly.
"What's wrong?" he asked her.
"Nothing... Look, Eddie, I go back to school the day after the concert...that's only another day of spring break. I need to take care of some things at home. Is it okay if you take me home now?" She felt her stomach ache. All she really wanted right now was to relax at home and invite Mel over for the night. She needed to clear her head this time.
"Sure..." Eddie replied, looking like he was a deer caught in the headlights of a speeding car. "Is there any way you'd want to stay over...? Tonight...?" Whatever was bothering her he needed to fix.
"You know, I promised Mel I'd see her tonight...her dad and everything..." her voice trailed off and Eddie gave in.
The two drove back to Loren's in silence. Eddie asked the driver to wait and walked Loren up to her door like he always did. He grabbed her hand as they walked and felt her smile just a little bit. This made him happy; he hadn't seen that since they had left dinner.
They stopped at her door and Eddie waited patiently while Loren unlocked the door. Mom must be out... she thought.
"Hey," Eddie said quietly and pulled Loren towards him. He smiled his beautiful smile again and Loren wished she was anywhere else. She knew that would get to her like nothing else would, and she felt her world stop instantly around her as he hugged her around her waist. She felt his heart beat as she stood, pressed against his chest, and felt his hands in the small of her back.
As soon as she looked up, he leaned down to kiss her. He didn't push for anything other than a simple, lingering touch. When he pulled away from her lips, Loren saw his eyes sparkle and was simply speechless.
"I can't wait for tomorrow," he said softly as she walked slowly into her house and began to shut the door with a smile.
"Yeah, me either..." she whispered.
Loren was about to close the door when Eddie's hand stopped her. "Loren," he began, and her heart started racing. After being so still, she felt like she was going to pass out. Eddie's voice was so smooth and it got her wanting him against her again so quickly it wasn't even funny.
Eddie looked flustered, and Loren felt like she was falling. Is he going to tell me...?" she thought, each word struggling to come to her head.
"Goodnight," he finished, and she crashed hard.
"Oh, goodnight," she replied with a forced smile, and finally let the door close between them.
Please read and comment and such and if everyone actually likes this, I might post more chapters with MUCH more Leddie scenes...there has to be a makeup sometime! ;)
