“Ross? Laura?” a voice said from behind.
Ross and Laura froze, immediately becoming nervous.
Then Ross saw who it was. “oh my god, what the heck are YOU doing here?”
Laura’s heart started beating fast, and not in the good way like when she saw Ross. She immediately stood up, and fixed up her hair awkwardly.
“Raini…hi!” Laura exclaimed with a nervous laugh. “nice running into you here”
“what were you two doing?” Raini said angrily, disappointment in her eyes.
Ross gave a nervous sexy smile as he scratched the back of his head, “um, just…stuff.” He said.
“stuff? I just saw Laura, she was about to-” Raini started saying
“WHAT ARE YOU DOING HERE?” Ross interrupted.
“Well, I got a call from Bell- um… you know what. It doesn’t matter why I’m here, what matters is why you two were here” Raini said loudly.
“well” Ross said as he took Laura’s hand. “Me and Laura are dating now” he told her.
“dating? You two are dating? This doesn’t look like dating to me, it looks like…” Raini said, she tried to hold back some tears as she turned around towards Laura. “what happened to loyalty, huh, Laura?”
“I’m so sorry Raini” Laura said, trying to pull in for a hug.
Raini quickly rejected her hug. “don’t touch me. Don’t even look at me. I can’t believe you…you know how I felt about Ross”
“But Raini, we’re best friends, I’m sorry! I just…” Laura said
“friends? That’s funny. Cause all I see in front of me is a lying backstabber” Raini told Laura.
“Raini that’s enough! We spoke about this, there’s no chance between us, leave Laura alone” Ross yelled loudly.
“I get it Ross. I get it. You’ll never like me. Just look at me, and look at you. I’m nothing, and I know that…I was living a dream, and I wanted my happily ever after. I wanted my prince charming. I wanted you Ross to be my prince charming” Raini said, tears rolling down her cheek. “I’m fat and ugly, I was stupid for falling for a guy like you, but hey, you can’t control your heart, no can you” she said.
Ross gulped. He didn’t know what to say.
Laura started crying, she felt so bad. “Raini-”
“don’t talk to me Laura. Never talk to me again. I might have to see you when we work, but that’s all” she said, as she walked away.
“Raini come back!” Laura yelled after her, but it was no use.
Ross buttoned up his shirt. He looked at Laura and gave her a half-smile. “shall we continue?”
“Ross!” Laura said, hitting on his chest. “did you just hear all that happened? How can you be so insensitive?”
“but baby” Ross said, pulling her chin up with her hand. He leaned in closer to him, his hips less than an inch away from hers. “I just want you to be happy.”
“Don’t do that Ross” Laura said, pushing him away.
“do what?” Ross asked feeling frustrated.
“that hot-thing were you’re incredibly irresistible and I can’t think straight. Please stop it” Laura said, half-jokingly.
“ha, I’m not sure I can” he told her, giving her a little wink.
“I’m serious Ross, I don’t think we can be together. I have to be faithful to Raini” Laura told him, looking down.
“what?” Ross said, his flirty smile fading away. “you can’t, you can’t do that. are you seriously gonna put her over your own happiness? Are you gonna put her over what we feel for each other?”
“well…” Laura said, feeling confused.
“ugh! You can’t do that Laura!” he said, walking away in frustration, running his hand over his hair. He turned back to her, “you can’t be that selfish!”
“Ross, you are not in a place to be talking to me like that, may I remind you of your little escapades with Bella and Zendaya?” Laura said, raising an eyebrow.
“I already explained all that to you, we were over that so don’t even bring it up, plus, what are you talking about? You were licking my abs a few minutes ago” Ross said teasingly.
“oh shut up Ross!” Laura said rolling her eyes, smirking at him. “fine, I’m sorry, but I just need some time to think. Raini is one of my best friends, I can’t abandon her”
“but, why do you always need to think of her? Why can’t she think of you? She’s not being a very good friend either” Ross questioned.
“Ross, she told me since the beginning, she always liked you, I never even admitted it to her, she always had dibs. It’s a girl thing. I failed her.” She told him.
“dibs? What am I, the last donut in a box? I’m a guy, a human being with feelings. And these feelings really care about you Laura.”
Laura said nothing. She just took a deep breath. She wanted Ross. She wanted him really bad. And Ross knew this.
“Alright, alright…I’m sorry” Laura told him. “It’s just…I don’t know…I can’t stand her being mad at me, we’re best friends”
“and we’re best friends too” he told her, giving her a wink.
“but didn’t you hear what she said? She’s insecure about herself and feels terrible about herself, we should do something” she told him.
“like what?” Ross said, not really wanting to talk about it. He got closer to her, trying to corner her once more.
“how about you go on a date with her?” Laura said, smiling at him.
“um, what? Heck no!” he exclaimed, feeling nearly disgusted by her suggestion.
“Ross, please” she said, putting her hand on his jawline. She kissed his jawline a little, Ross immediately closed his eyes, then she pulled away. “for me?”
“Laura, you don’t understand…” Ross said, thinking about Raini’s creepy room. He knew Raini had an unhealthy obsession for him, and he did not want to encourage her feelings. “Raini…creeps me out” was all he managed to say.
“Ross! Don’t be rude! She just has a crush on you!” Laura said, annoyed by his comment.
“Laura, you don’t know everything. Raini…” Ross couldn’t bring himself to say it, he didn’t even know how he would explain it. “Raini has tried to do things to me, kind of forced, she has posters of me and-”
“Ross, that’s not so bad! I’m telling you it’s just a crush. Listen, all you gotta do is go on a date with her, set her straight, tell her you’re just gonna be friends but that you really like her a lot, end it on good terms. Maybe that way, she’ll forgive me, and well…we can all be happy” Laura suggested.
Ross took a deep breath, “fine”
“AH! YES!” Laura said, squealing in excitement, as she kissed him on the cheek repeatedly. “thank you thank you thank you!” she exclaimed.
“no problem…” Ross said unexcitedly. Deep down he knew he was making a bad decision.
She looked up at him, and licked her lips. He was so much taller than her, she needed to look up at him and he looked down. She rested her head on his chest, as he wrapped his hands around her waist.
“promise me something Laura” he said, sounding very worried. “you won’t let anything come between us. No matter how bad things might seem to get, always remember, people throw rocks at things that shine. Promise me you won’t give up on our love so easily”
“I promise” she assured him.
Ross smiled, looked up at the stars once more, and rested his chin on her head. “so…um…are we gonna finish what we started?” he said, in a sexy teasing voice.
“I don’t think so” she said laughing.
“didn’t think so” Ross replied, laughing in disappointment. The cool breeze from the night blew at them, but they kept warm, in each other’s arms.
~The Next Morning in the Lynch home kitchen~
“Didn’t go nowhere, never left, UH!” Ross said, wearing only a white v-neck t-shirt, socks and boxers as he spread some peanut butter on a toast. Dancing from side to side.
“well, someone’s happy” Ross’s dad said as he walked into the kitchen.
“Yes! I’m very happy! I got the girl! I got Laura!” Ross said, very excitedly to his father.
“That’s great news son, I’m very happy for you” he answered.
“Hey you, Mr. Superior-Brother” Rocky said, in an annoyed tone.
Ross rolled his eyes. “what is it?”
“It’s a phone call from you, apparently a big music agent wants to talk to you” he said, smacking the phone on top of the counter and storming off the room.
“Yes?” Ross said nervously.
“Hello, Ross? Ross Lynch?” the man asked.
“Yes, it’s me” Ross replied.
“It’s me Marcus Welman here, I just played some of your vocal tracks here to a couple of my supervisors. They really want to meet you. This record deal is pretty much made for you”
Ross was nervous, but he still smiled.
