Finally all exams are over for the year, and that can only mean one thing… Time to celebrate. A few of us are at the local club and I decided to walk outside for some fresh air. Those places really are sticky and stuffy.
“Hey sweetie, you shouldn’t be out here alone” I turn to see some old man double my age, and just utterly wasted. I turn away to ignore him. But he won’t leave “don’t ignore me” “come on cutie, I just want to show you a good time” and that’s when he grabs my arm. I pull back but he’s too strong, “just leave me alone, I’m not interested” I tell him, this isn’t good. Why didn’t I stay inside. “She said leave her alone” I turn to follow the Australian accent, the guy lets go and I’m pushed behind the tallest guy I’ve ever seen, and all I can see is his blonde hair from behind. “And who are you? She’s mine” the old guy slurs at him. That’s when blondie walks nearer to him and whispers something I can’t hear. But whatever it was it worked. He walked away, and I feel relived, I cannot believe what happened “Are you okay?” I’m brought back to reality with these blue eyes staring intently at me, he’s checking my arm for any marks left. “I-im okay” I manage to get out, I feel shaken. “Listen it’s okay now, he was just drunk. I’m glad I found you out here”, I look up “thankyou so much, you saved me” I hug him, I’ve never owed someone this much. He chuckles at my sudden outburst “that’s alright Lucy” I step back “how do you know my name?” I question. “E–Erm,” he scratches the back of his scruffy hair “that’s why I came out here, I saw you in the bar earlier and I thought you looked, you know. And I, I just came to see if you were okay or talk to you or something. I don’t know. But I heard your friend shout your name earlier and now I feel like a right stalker” “hey chatterbox, calm down. We were stood at the bar together, you were bound to hear my name” I smile, remembering how attractive we all thought he was. “You noticed me?” He questions “who wouldn’t, blonde hair and blue eyes, quite a catch” I wink and laugh, “I’m Luke, listen lets go back inside, or somewhere else or anything”… And that’s where it all began
