Wait?! You’re confusing me more than why a cucumber is green. Why are you crying? Crying isn’t cool or normal for boys. I would offer a hug, but I don’t give hugs out often… So - don’t cry? Please?
I was cutting some onions, that’s why i’m crying. Want some food?
In my bedroom? I doubt it. I only have a bed and clothes in here - that I know of. Glad to be around again, sleeping can get boring. Missed you too - maybe.
Damn Zinc, that hurts. And I thought you were one of my cool chics.
Crosses your name out. Not cool.
The ones in my bedroom. Hibernation does a good job. Long time no hear to you too, Key. I’m good thanks, woke up yesterday and got back into the swing of everything again today. How about you, Luke?
Is that were all the good shit hides as well? Haha, well it’s good to see you around again. I missed you, no lie.
“Okay.” Zinc nodded, before raising her eyebrow at him rejecting the money. She rolled her eyes and chuckled. “I didn’t give you a choice to accept it or not.” She told him bluntly, straightening up and shoving the money into his jean pocket. She grinned back, leaning against the banister again and waving. “Okay. See you in a few then.”
Once he had left, she walked into the living room and over to the DVD shelf. She wasn’t sure what Luke wanted to watch - so she had decided to pick a simple horror film that never really seemed too horrible in her eyes. She found one she knew, The Grudge. She smiled at her choice and rested it next to the TV - unsure of what to do now. Like most of the time, she was clueless as what to do with her time.
She sighed, before wandering into the kitchen and grabbing a couple of cans of each drink, Coke, Dr. Pepper and Lemonade. Just hang out with someone kinda made her miss her living days, where she would lounge on the sofa with her best friend Jenna and waste the day away watching her horrible chick flicks and then having to protect her from the scary creatures in Zinc’s horror films. It was amazing days and she really missed them, but she could do all that again at Halloween when she could go home. Even though she planned to visit her sister’s grave this year. She smiled softly at the thought, carrying the cans back to the living room and resting them on the coffee table.
Luke looked at Z as she just told him that it wasn’t an option to take her money or not. His grin turned into a smirk as he gave her that look, ‘what am I goin’ to do with you?’ He shook his head as he left the room with the order to what she wanted and with his as well. As Luke made his ways through the house, he noticed that most of it was empty. He figures like most teens, they would go there where abouts or to some party to have a good time on the weekend.
Luke got into his car, he started to wonder more of the house and those that he already know that are dead among the living. It still gave him the chills to know that the dead looked just as human-like. It was enough to fuck the mind, but they weren’t creepy dead looking, so he tried to tell himself that they were just normal kids. That’s how he dealt with it, most would say its a sign of denial but to him it’s simply accepting them.
The first stop that Luke made was to the liquor store, he figured the house had everything else but no liquor. If he would get too wasted, he figured he would sleep in with Ava. But, for now, his plans were with Zinc one of the girls that he considers to have got close with him pretty fast. As Luke got a bottle of Grey Goose Vodka and a forty he went to call the pizza place to have his order ready by the time he got there. Once he picked up the pizza, he was ready to head back to the house.
Luke parked the car, and looked for Z as she had some drinks ready on the table already set up. “I got something to add to those!” He grinned as he settled the pizza on the table then grabbed some cups to pour the liquor and sodas together with.
Zinc stood leaning against the banister in the hall, staring at Luke as he asked about a million questions. She didn’t mind, she enjoyed the company - but Luke didn’t seem half as bad as most of the living, and she knew she would only ever be friends with him. He seemed pretty relaxed and didn’t seem like one to cause a fuss. She listened to his question, before thinking about them for a moment.
She shrugged, “I eat anything besides Olives.” She told him simply, crossing her arms over her chest. She wasn’t much of a social bee, but she didn’t like to drag people along. She doubted she would do any good for Luke, but she wouldn’t do any bad for him either - seeing as he had already managed to get into the bad business himself. She didn’t care though, he was good to talk to.
She shrugged again, watching him retrieve his phone from his pocket and started to use it as a notebook. “We have coke, Dr. Pepper and Lemonade here, so I don’t really mind.” She responded, now crossing her ankles. “Surprise me.” She chuckled, rolling her eyes and letting out a small laugh. “Not complaining - yet.” She smirked, before untangling her arms and going through her jean pockets to pull out three ten pound notes. She passed them to him. “This enough? You can keep the change if there is any.”
Luke knew sometimes, he simply did talk a lot. It was something that his sister made him get out of that shy comfort zone. It was weird to allow the younger sibling to be a big influence on him, but that is indeed the truth of it all. Neither of their parents had more children, as Kristi and himself share the same mother. And both have the same fate of being bastard children. It was probably the biggest reason why Luke was so protective of his sister or any female friends he has. He didn’t want to be like any male figures he has had in his life. The ones that were up to no good.
Luke knew he wasn’t the best role model, but damn did he try. It wasn’t his fault when he got locked up, he simply was at the wrong place, at the wrong time. A set up that costed him eighteen months of his life that he will never get back nor erase from his record. He figures shit happens for a reason, there was no reason for him to live in the past, but to move forward. It’s all one being can do.
“Alright, I got that.” He wrote everything down before looking up for her to hand him some money. He raised his hands to protest, “Will not accept that. It was my idea, my invitation. It’s on me.” He grinned at her as he closed the screen of his phone and looked at her. “Be back in a few.”
By one in the afternoon, Luke is usually mostly in bed still. Mostly due to the factor that he’s up all night, and sleeps during the day. Sometimes he wonders if he’s a demon of the night or something. Then they wonder why he’s pale like snow. Luke shrug it off, he figures eventually he’ll get some color since residing in California now. But for now, he wasn’t going to stress it.
“Is there any toppings you like?” Luke asked the brunette that was only a few feet away from him. Zinc has been one of those females that he considers to be on his most chill category. Making their friendship be a breeze, easy as breathing. Which is something that Luke needs in his life, more people that can be a good influence on him. Even if they are not a hundred percent good, but he always see’s good in them.
Luke took out his phone as he was going to write down in his notepad in his phone what it was that she wanted on her pizza. “Also, you want drinks or are you covered?” He paused for a moment, “You want appetizers?” He chuckled a bit, “Hey, I like to make sure I ask these things before I go.” He licked his lips as he waited for her order.
Idiots, creeps, insane freaks. No. I don’t go to school at all. You said you were the Key to fun, meaning there must be someone who’s your lock. Dealer? In what? Drugs? Or a casino dealer?
That’s a very good point! I like you already, I can tell we will get into a whole lot of trouble together.
I’m a drug dealer.
