You're The Closest To Heaven That I'll Ever Be
Everything is good
Andy had no idea where he was going to take her. He knew that Lily wouldn't care where they were, as long as they were together. But for Andy, the location had to be perfect. Everything had to be perfect. He didn't want to fuck this up.
He asked the guys, but they were no help. Jinxx had been with the same girl for a year--she had been his first and only girlfriend. All of Ashley's suggestions dealt with trying to get in her pants. CC was far from an expert on the topic of romance and Jake told him to take her out for pizza. Coming from Jake, that was no surprise.
In the end, Jake's idea was the best option there was. It wasn't exactly what Andy had in mind, but then again, Andy didn't have much in mind about the whole situation.
So there they sat across from one another with a pizza sitting on the table in the middle of them. The only sound heard throughout the whole building was soft, emotional music gently pulsing through the speakers on the ceiling. It was awkward to say the least.
As Andy tried to search his brain for something to say, a voice that was clearly not Lily's broke the awkward silence. Andy looked over to see the last person he ever expected to see walk in towards them.
"Chance?" Andy was confused, happy, angry and surprised all at once.
"Andy! Bro!" Chance slid into the booth next to Lily. "Well, it is snowing like a motherfucker outside. And I don't know if you know this but motherfuckers snow. A lot."
"Chance..." Andy groaned. "Don't get me wrong, I'm happy to see you but... What the fuck are you doing here?"
Chance shrugged. "We're on vacation and my parents wanted to visit with your parents. Your mom told me you were here. But she didn't tell me you were on a date." Chance nudged Lily's arm with his elbow. "Is this Lily? The girl you tell me all about all the time?"
Andy dropped his head in his hands as he felt a warm blush creep up on his cheeks.
"Uh, I'm going to go to the bathroom; give you boys some time to talk." Lily tried to squeeze by Chance so she could get out of the booth.
As soon as she was gone, Andy turned back to Chance.
"Well, she seems nice." Chance said nonchalantly.
"Chance, you are so dead." Andy seethed. "You're making me look like an idiot. I really like her, dude. Just... stop trying to be a wing man because you suck at it."
Chance opened his mouth to say something but then closed it when he saw Lily walking back to the table. Instead of scooting in back to her seat next to Chance, she sat down next to Andy.
Chance had a smug look on his face as he looked down at his phone, rapidly typing a message. A few seconds later, Andy's phone vibrated in his pocket.
From Chance: Looks like having me around isn't that bad after all. Now she's sitting next to you! Put your arm around her, dumb ass. She looks cold (;
Andy looked at Chance who gave him an encouraging head nod and then looked back down at his phone, re-reading the message and trying to figure out how to put his arm around her suavely.
Okay, Andy. Don't think about it. Just do it. That's the only way you'll be able to do it. He thought to himself.
With one swift move, his arm was around her shoulders. She looked at his hand on her shoulder and then back up at him. She smiled and snuggled up into the crook of his arm where she fit just perfectly.
Okay, Andy thought. This is good. Everything is good.
