You know more than me, Nels
kinda sleepy but alive
We’re all pleased about that. By we, I mean me
need ta’ be watched constantly, I need ta’ leave this ‘ouse!
But you’re hot? You’re made to be watched
One can wish
Not a night owl then, Joey?
Just wanted to make sure. I know you’ve been going through some tough shit lately.
Yeah, maybe. But so have you. I hope things get better, Lea
Is everything alright?
Yeah, course. Why wouldn’t it be?
I miss you too.
Hey, when you’re back.. can we talk?
Roxy sighed sadly as she listened to Lucas. It seemed to her that he regretted what he’d done, but she knew he must have done it for a good reason. Like herself, Lucas wasn’t really the relationship type, which was probably one of the reasons it hadn’t worked out between him and Lea. “D’ya wanna take it back?” Roxy asked. “’Cause if ya do… Maybe ya should talk to ‘er. A proper talk, where ya jus’ sit down an’ talk ‘bout ya feelin’s and try an’ come up with a solution tha’ makes ya both ‘appy. ‘Cause I know ya not ‘appy now, an’ I’m sure Lea in’t either.” Roxy knew she was no good at giving relationship advice, but she didn’t like seeing Lucas unhappy.
Roxy frowned when Lucas told her what Natalie had said. She was surprised that her mum had said something like that to him. Knowing Lucas, he’d probably said something to her in jest that Natalie might have taken to heart, but that was still no excuse to insult him like that. “Ya serious?” she said, shocked. “I’m sorry ‘bout tha’… Jus’ ignore ‘er. I’m the mental one ‘ere. An’ she can ‘ate it all she wants, bu’ tha’ in’t gonna change anythin’. An’ anyway, it ‘as nothin’ to do with ‘er. ‘E’s our baby, not ‘ers.” Roxy stopped talking and smiled when Lucas told her he was alright. That was such a relief to hear. “Good,” she replied softly. “Don’t mention it. I’ve been a right knob’ead to ya ever since all o’ this started so thanks for forgivin’ me an’ stuff. I’m glad we’re mates now.”
Lucas shrugged. He knew the answer. He knew what his heart wanted. But his head told him no. “I suppose.” He looked up at Roxy carefully. It was surprising how well they got along now. She was probably one of his best friends. He hoped she thought of him as one too. “I think.. I think there’s something she’s not telling me though. Like, I don’t think she cares. I think she wanted me to dump her? She hasn’t mentioned me since. And she just goes on about Seb. Like, I know he’s dying, but is there no room to care about anyone else?” He’d had a feeling for a while, but he couldn’t talk. He’d been flirting with Ally and who knew who else for months, but now he’d realised he really missed Lea. “It’s like there’s someone else too. Not as in cheating, she wouldn’t do that but na.. I’m probably just being jealous that she has other mates. Who knows.” He was thinking out loud and wasn’t sure quite where he was going about it. He just wished Lea would let him see her again, but he was too afraid to ask for that and since she was going away. The thought of his thoughts made him feel physically sick with jealousy. And all he wanted was to lose that feeling.
The Natalie situation still stirred around in his mind. “I did call her old behind her back. Only because some dude was going on about how hot she is and like, she’s my baby’s grandma so I don’t wanna think about that shit. It’s wrong.” It bothered him and he didn’t know why, but mostly he’d been in a bad mood. Who knew why. That’s all he seemed to be in lately though. A bad mood. He pushed his lips together and nodded. “I’m glad we’re mates too.”
