Like old times
She began to wonder why she was ever mad at him. Just his smile could melt away any negative feelings she had for him. He was beautiful in every way and she just wanted him all to herself.
She had to hold herself back from lunging at him, holding him in her arms and never letting go. She wanted his tender pink lips against hers. She wanted to feel his lip ring imprint her skin. She wanted to feel his hands explore her body and make her feel beautiful. She wanted to feel him inside her. Her body ached for him. She wanted him in every way possible.
"So what are you doing in LA?" His sweet, deep voice penetrated her thoughts and pulled her mind back to reality. "Start to miss me too much?" He joked.
She laughed along with him. "No, actually, I forgot you were even here." She admitted.
His smile slowly faded as he realized she was serious. "Oh..." He said. "That would explain why you flipped me off the other day."
"Hey. You were tailgating me, asshole." She said in defense.
"Whoa, hey. I was late for a recording session." He held his hands up.
Lily placed her cigarette between her lips before giving him a playful punch to the arm. She took a puff of her cigarette before returning it to the spot between her fingers.
The two looked at each other and couldn't help but crack a smile. It was like they never left each other.
Out of instinct, they both looked down at the ground and both fell silent. They stood there and listened to the sounds of the city.
"Go on tour with me." Andy looked over at her, breaking the silence between them.
"What?" Lily looked at him, making sure she had heard him correctly.
"I haven't seen you in six years and we leave for tour in three days. I'm not ready to leave you yet. I just got you back. I can't let you slip away again. Come with us. It'll be fun." He stood there, hoping she would agree. He couldn't stand being away from her for so long.
Lily shook her hand through her hair. "Queen Bitch isn't going to like that." Lily said, referring to Juliet.
Andy dropped his arms by his side. "Fuck what she thinks, Lily. I don't care what she wants. What do you want?"
Lily dropped her cigarette onto the pavement and stepped on it to put it out. "I don't know, Andy. I--" The door behind them opened, cutting off Lily's sentence.
"Lily! There you are! We got worried about you!" Carolina stumbled outside, hanging onto Ashley's arm with McKenna following behind them, tripping over herself as well.
Lily gave Andy an apologetic look. "I need to get them home..." She said.
Andy nodded, watching Lily link arms with both girls and escort them further and further down the sidewalk.
Ashley saw Andy watching Lily walk away. "You still love her." He stated.
Andy sighed. "It's that obvious?"
Ashley chuckled. "It's written all over your face."
Andy slid down the brick wall and sat on the cold concrete. Ashley sat down next to him, giving him a reassuring pat on the shoulder.
"I feel like we're sixteen again." Andy admitted. "I can't go on this tour, Ash. Not without her."
"It'll be fine, Andy. She'll be here when you get back. And think about Juliet. What would she do if she found out you took Lily on tour and not her?"
Andy rested his elbows on his knees and his head in his hands. He loved Juliet but he loved Lily. Only one of them could go on tour with him and he had asked Lily already. In all honesty, he really didn't want Juliet to go with him. He thought that this tour was going to be a way to get a nice little break away from her.
He had asked Lily. Now all he had to do was wait for the answer.
