Moving on he assessed that the kids were all pretty attractive, which meant he had somehow landed at a Cool Kid’s Party, but his gaze was caught on one guy in particular. He was blonde, with sharp grey eyes that caused him to swallow unconsciously. He had a strong jaw and cheekbones that he couldn’t stop looking at. Eventually the girl next to the other boy cleared her throat, and everyone turned to her. “So… You must be Philip?” – aka the one with the Halloween party that triggered Lukas’ life spiraling out of control
