Several hours later, Luke’s phone rang. When he answered it, the first thing he heard was a high-pitched squeal.

“I got the house! I got the house! I offered as much as another buyer, but the sellers were in a sudden time crunch. They wanted to close in less than two weeks, and I was the only one who could do that. The house is mine!”

Luke grinned into the phone. “That’s great, Lise. I’m so happy for you.”

“Let’s go out and celebrate.”

Shit. “I can’t.”

“Of course. I’m sorry. You probably have other plans. I already interrupted your morning.” She tried to sound nonchalant, but he could hear the disappointment in her voice.

“Hey, you didn’t interrupt anything. I was more than happy to come over this morning.”

Luke was also secretly pleased that, out of all the people in her life, she’d called him. He knew Rachel was out of town, but he also knew there were other people she could have called besides him.

“It’s just that I promised Hall—I mean, Nate that we’d go out tonight and do something.” Luke lowered his voice because Nate was in the kitchen, rummaging through his pantry. “Believe me, I’d much rather hang with you tonight.”

“Well, that makes me feel better,” Elise said.

At that exact time, Nate came up behind Luke when he hadn’t been looking. “Hey, I take offense to that. Just because I can’t make you orgasm doesn’t mean I’m no fun.” Nate flopped down on Luke’s couch next to him with a bag of Luke’s chips in his hand. He rubbed his chin. “Actually, I think I could give you an orgasm. But I doubt either of us would like it.”

Elise started laughing on the other side of the phone.

“I guess you heard all that, huh?”

“Yes,” she said, still giggling. “Does he ever quit?”

Luke thought about it. “No.”

“Does it get old?”

“Hardly ever. He knows when to be serious. Don’t you, Hall?”

Nate pretended to be wounded. “Of course I do. I was a perfect gentleman at your grandmother’s funeral, was I not?”

“You were,” he told Nate. “Did you hear that, Elise?”

“Yes, but still…”

Luke laughed.

Nate might be over the top sometimes, but he was like a brother to Luke. And he always found Nate to be honest. He said what other people were thinking anyway. It was refreshing that Luke never had to wonder what his childhood friend was thinking.

“Meh, he grows on ya.”

“Like a fungus,” Elise joked.

Luke laughed.

“Hey, I heard that,” Nate said, his mouth full of chips.

“I’m just kidding,” she said loud enough for Nate to hear.

“You’d better be. I like you, FB. Don’t make me change my mind.”

“Is he going to call me that forever?” Elise asked with a sigh.

Luke winced. “Probably, but let’s hope not. He didn’t tell you what it stood for, did he?”

“Oh, he did.”

Luke sent a death glare at Nate. “I told you not to call her that.”

“What?” Nate looked confused before he must have remembered. “Ohh. Yeah, well, it’s like a badge of honor. How could I not?”

Luke didn’t say anything to Nate, but he did apologize to Elise.
