Lucy liked to believe she could have a boyfriend and be with the band.
So far she had designed the T-shirts to sell for them. Did the graphic art on their 10 song CD. And she did videos of their shows and whatever else she could, to sell the band. And still she was not their manager.
In the beginning she'd been smitten by Casey who was such a rocker. Well, she thought so. He had the look. He was so cute, and really cool. Or so she thought. Now, it was like he was stuck. No emotion. Nothing. It was so cold around him. He just left her hanging.
Yes, she'd spent the night with him only he'd fallen asleep on her in the end. Now she thought he might be gay. He just wasn't boyfriend material. She knew he'd rather be playing video games or playing poker. Not with a girl like her. It had been such a drag last summer, into the fall. She'd hung on to the fact that maybe things would change during winter with Casey. But it hadn't. It was as if whatever she felt for him had dried up and blown away. He wasn't nearly as sexy as she imagined. True, she might could have a pretty darn cute baby with him, but she didn't want a baby. She wanted a real boyfriend and it seemed so possible with Cory.
"Hey," he was all smiles when he saw her down at the pit where the band practiced. Sometimes, they played at the club too. She smiled at his recognition.
They'd gone out for a movie last night, and he'd held her hand. It was sweet. They'd kissed when he brought her home. It was just the way she wanted. And..and he'd really talked to her.
"I made you something." He then said as he pulled a braided hemp bracelet out of his back jean pocket. The bracelet had pink beads.
"You shouldn't have." She couldn't resist but to give him a kiss on the cheek. He was amazing. "When did you do this?"
"Last night." He shrugged.
Lucy shook her head. She bit her bottom lip as she put it on. It seemed everyday he had something for her. A necklace. Her favorite candy bar.
"You're so thoughtful, you know that." She kept looking at him thinking he was the one. He really was. She could easily lose herself in him.
