SS Chapter 61

Semi IMPORTANT: Hello everyone. Not to be needy but I was wondering if I could get a little bit of input from you all. I have some larger plot points I want to work up to in this story but I need some smaller moments to get there. I was wondering if any of you had smaller ( or even bigger) moments that you'd like to see from this story. I'm not ready to jump into one of my big event quite yet as it doesn't work with my timeline. So if there is some moment you'd really like to see let a girl know!

" I need a boyfriend" Riley said out of the blue as she and Maya walked down the street.

Maya nearly spit up the sip of iced coffee she and just taken.

" No you do not." Maya spluttered, taking the napkin that Riley was offering her and using it to wipe the excess coffee splatter from her face.

"You just got out of a relationship that basically spanned the entirety of high school. Don't you think it's time to take a break?" Maya encouraged, looking at her friend with not a small amount of disbelief. Riley sighed.

" I know Lucas and I just broke up. Trust me I remember. That's why I need a new boyfriend. Nothing serious. Just something to fill all this free time in my life." Riley explained, stirring the excess sugar into her cold coffee.

" Oh my god. So read a book." Maya exclaimed, bumping Riley with her hip. Riley rolled her eyes at her.

" Come on! I'm bored" Riley protested.

" You've been single for what? Three weeks? I was single for 18 years." Maya rationed, shaking her head at her friend. This time it was Riley who rolled her eyes.

'Oh come don't lie to yourself. You were single by choice." Riley accused. Maya narrowed her eyes at her best friend.

"What's that supposed to mean?" Maya snapped back, feeling confused and slightly attacked.

"Oh don't lie to yourself. There have been plenty of guys who've looked your way over the years and you've barely batted an eye at them. You've been too lost waiting for Josh to return your longing stares for so long that you haven't even noticed your other admirers."

"That is not true" Maya defended.

"Uh yes it."

"You are mistaken." Maya stated, standing her ground.

"Name one other boy you've been interested in." Riley countered, watching her friend expectantly.

Maya pursed her lips, thinking, before she came up with an answer

"There was Zay.." Maya tried

"Who you pretended to date for maybe 5 minutes to make vanessa jealous.." Riley countered. Maya took another second and tried again

" Harris Fuller" That time RIley actually laughed

" You liked him for 20 minutes during one lunch period in 10th grade and then you decided he was too stuffy for your taste"

" His mom still cut the crust off his sandwiches and he wore too many collared shirts!" May defended.

" and don't even try and bring up Lucas because we all know where that line was drawn!" Riley quipped before Maya even had the chance.

There was another silence as Maya searched her brain long and hard.

" I rest my case"' RIley finished smugly, taking a long sip from her coffee.

" Oh shut up. So far it's worked out in my favour." Maya defended.

" I mean it only took what 4 years? but I roped in your uncle." Riley cringed.

" Please don't refer to him as my uncle in that context."

" In what context?" Maya questioned.

" In the context of you being so smug about the idea of being my aunt." Riley said with a touch of disgust.

" Okay Josh and I have been dating for 5 minutes so you're jumping the gun a little bit with the whole aunt thing, and also don't speak to your future aunt in that tone, it's disrespectful." Maya joked.

"If you're so bored then why don't you come hang out with Josh and I tonight? His friend is having some party in Williamsburg. " Maya offered.

"Are you just inviting me because you're afraid to meet my uncles friends without backup."

" I am not nervous to meet his friends, and by that I mean i'm only slightly nervous and please don't make me go alone." Riley smirked at her.

" to brooklyn we go."

"Do I look older?" Riley asked. " because I think it took us a decade to get here on the train" Riley complained.

Josh shook his head at her as he lead the two girls down the street and towards his friend Kate's apartment.

"Remind me again why we brought her?" Josh whispered to Maya as they hurried down the street.

" because she's best friend and she's and lonely and she just broke off an engagement so she needs our support." Maya reasoned.

" They were never engaged" Josh shot back.

" Oh they were close enough." Maya shot back.

The elevator opened directly into Kates loft and the room before her left Maya's jaw slack. She knew that Kate had money but she didn't know what kind of money. The apartment was modern and chic and eclectically decorated. The ceiling was high and while too most people it wasn't a huge space by new york standards it was the tajmah hall.

" Joshy!" A tall, lean, beautiful brunette girl emerged from the group of people and immediately threw her arms around Josh.

"It's been over a month. Where have you been?" Maya assumed that this must be Kate. She had heard about her before and her constant attempts to find him a girlfriend. Would Kate dislike Maya off the bat purely because she hadn't hand picked her?

"I've been busy." Kate broke their hug and turned to look at Maya and Riley.

" and now I see with what!" Suddenly Maya was being hugged.

" You must be Maya i've heard so much about you!" She exclaimed, squeezing her tight.

" You have?" Maya asked surprised. Kate pulled back to look at her.

" Yeah Josh is a blabber mouth after his fourth beer. I pried it out of him after he turned down every single lovely girl I tried to push on him."

"Sorry about that." Josh whispered to them as they moved further into the party.

" I think Kate's been into the merlot. She's not usually that huggy." Josh whispered.

Riley tugged on Maya's arm. They had been at the party for a little over an hour. Josh had introduced them to a few of his friends and was now caught up in a conversation across the room. Maya and Riley had wandered away in search of snacks.

"We're at a college party." Riley whispered.

" Our first college party. Our party as people who are in college." Riley went on.

" We're not in college yet." Maya retorted.

"Well we aren't in high school." Riley reasoned.

"Also that girl is glaring at you." Riley mentioned, taking a sip from a drink she had poured herself from the makeshift bar in the kitchen. Maya looked over in the direction that Riley had indicated. There was a girl with dark hair sitting on the edge of the couch, her arms cross and a drink clutched to her chest. She had a sour look on her face and was shooting a dark look in their direction.

" she appears to be." Maya confirmed.

" Do we know her?" Riley asked, shooting glances

"You don't" A voice from behind them confirmed. Maya twisted to see Josh's old roommate standing behind them, staring at the girl that was glaring at their little group.

"Hey Randy." Maya said as way of greeting.

" So who's the chick?" Riley asked.

" That would be Jill. She hangs around these parties a lot. She's got kind of a thing for Josh." Randy explained.

"Should I be worried?" Maya joked.

" Hmm you'll be okay this time because no girl Josh has ever brought to one of these things has made it past one party, but next time i'd consider watching your back." Randy answered.

" Very comforting Rand. Thanks" Maya answered sarcastically.

" You asked!" he defended.

" Okay i'm out of here." Riley said, downing her drink and placing her empty cup in the counter.

"What?" Maya asked in shock.

"Farkle has his father's town car and he's coming to get me. We're going to a midnight movie. I can't deal with another year long train ride." Maya rolled her eyes.

"Stay. Mingle. Get to know Josh's friends. It's good for your blossoming relationship." Riley leaned in and gave Maya a quick hug before waving goodbye to Josh.

Maya made her way back over to Josh, weaving through the people to get over to him.

"Riley bailed." She stated, leaning into Josh's side. He wrapped his arm around her.

" You ready to go too?" Josh asked. Maya looked up at him.

" You're done being social already?" She asked.

" I've talked who I needed to talk to." Maya smiled up at him.

" Alright then let's go." Josh glanced down at his watch.

" We've still got a few hours until you need to be home. Did you want to go back to my place?" He asked. Maya felt the heat of her arm around the back and tried to focus consciously on not blushing. She tried not to read too much into what he was saying.

"Sounds good."
