Despite their differences, the two strike up an unlikely friendship.

“Excuse me,” the man said, in an oh-so-sexy voice.
Is he a singer-to-be or something? I wondered, gazing dreamily at his baby-blue eyes, straight nose, and full, dark-reddish lips.
The man smiled and scratched his short, layered hair. It was around then that Luke passed by Amira’s room with a TV show director. I heard him say goodbye to the director, but nothing registered in my head until I felt Luke’s arm around my waist just as the man was about to speak again. And since it was so normal for me to feel Luke’s hand on me, I almost didn’t notice it until the handsome stranger looked at my waist and said, “You have a cute girlfriend there, bro.” He glanced at Luke, who smiled widely.
“Of course!” Luke proudly replied, possessively tightening his grip on me. My heart was filled with warmth and anger at the same time. “I would never choose someone other than my belov—uff!” His words were cut off by the force of my elbow hitting his side.
This whole thing might be fun for Luke, but my love-life was at stake here!
I forced a laugh and added a half-playful smack to Luke’s face as I looked back to the man in front of us. “Don’t listen to him. We’re not in that kind of relationship. He’s a friend and my boss.”
