Lucas waited. He waited for her to answer his texts but they were all left unanswered. He waited for her to pick up his calls but they all went to voicemail. He waited outside her classes and by her locker but she never showed. He even went so far as to drop by her house unannounced but no one was home. Riley Matthews had fell off the face of the earth and he was slowly losing his mind.
A part of him was legitimately worried he imagined the whole thing. How could someone he only knew for a short period of time already mean so much to him? How could he go on with his life knowing she was out there, that she was hurt and he was the reason why? How could he let this happen?
After school he sits in the auditorium, watching the drama club rehearse for their production of Les Mis. Riley was supposed to play the part of Éponine but since she seemingly disappeared Margaret Coin, her understudy was now stepping in her place.
He listened to the way she sung it, unimpressed and slightly annoyed that Margaret had the nerve to sing her song.
Her rendition of On My Own was the first time he saw Riley, really saw her, the first time he heard her. And the emotion, the tone of her voice, it was like it set his soul on fire.
His mind starts to wander back to how different things were only a month ago…
She sat on the floor of his room, back pressed against the foot of his bed as he played her his favorite songs. He compiled a rather impressive list of all his go-to’s. The ones that make him sad, the ones that make him smile, the ones he’s embarrassed he knows all the words to.
