Loralai stepped inside Luke's Diner. Her heart pounded as she looked
at the darkness surrounding her. The Diner had been closed for hours,
but the door had been left unlocked; she knew Luke was still there.
She made her way to the counter and took a seat. She thought about how her mother had been convinced that she was in love with Luke. She had thought her mother was crazy, but now Sookie was talking too. Sookie had been hinting that Loralai had feelings for
Luke as well.
Loralai took a deep breath as she heard Luke coming. She
closed her eyes for a moment that seemed like an eternity, and when
she opened them she saw Luke standing before her. He opened his mouth
and words came out asking why she was there, but Loralai did not
reply. She wasn't listening, she was to caught up in the expression
painted onto Luke's face. She studied him, he hadn't shaven for days,
and he was not clean cut at all, but there was something about him.
There always had been something about him, a secret attraction that
they had always shared. It was an attraction beyond looks and beyond
Loralai loved Luke with all her heart. She only wished that
maybe he could love her back the same. Looking at him standing before
her in the darkness of the diner made her realize that she needed
him, she yearned to have him by her side. Finally she took a deep
breath and leaned in over the counter to be closer to him.
Luke did not know what was going on. He thought Loralai might
be hurt or upset. He loved Loralai and even though he did not think
she loved him back, he would still do anything to help her. He leaned
in close to her, waiting for her to tell him why she had come to him
so late at night. Waiting for her to tell whatever she needed to tell.
"Close your eyes," she whispered softly.
Luke gently closed his eyes and waited for a further
explanation but receiving a kiss instead. It was his first kiss from
Loralai, and it was the kiss of true love.
