NEW STORY/ Sequel part 2

A few days later (well a few nights later, actually) I snuck away to Dr. DeathDefying’s pirate radio station. I thought with all the Killjoys, rock and rollers and general misfits that blow through there, I might have some chance of seeing Luke again. When I got there, most everything was quiet, except for the record playing on the record machine. There were a few people sleeping on the floor, and one person crashed on the tired looking couch. The person on the couch looked strangely familiar, but I couldn’t place where I’d seen him before. I got closer to him. No. It couldn’t be. It was Luke. I could feel my eyes watering with joy. I finally found him after years of searching. I took one of his hands and whisper- shouted “LUKE!” He slowly opened his eyes and looked at me. “Juliet…. Is that you?” I nodded. “Yeah, yeah it’s me.” I managed to choke out around the large lump forming in my throat. Luke threw his arms around me and squeezed me in one of his famous death grip hugs. He was a lot bigger than the last time I’d seen him. He’d easily grown like a foot or two feet. I felt so small compared to him. “I- I um… found the CD and picture in the apartment building.” I said to him. “Really? Thank God. I was hoping you would. In my mind, I figured that some random Killjoy would find them and throw them away.” I laughed as silently as I could. “Oh, I missed you so much. I ran away from the others to come find you.” He ran his fingers through my bright pink hair. “You always were my little rebel, Juliet.” Hearing him say my name again sent me over the edge. Tears of happiness started to trickle down my face, and I started kissing him harder than I’d ever kissed anyone before. He responded right away, and we were back in our natural rhythm again. It was like we operated on the same wavelength, the same frequency.
We were back. And stronger than ever.
Oh, crap. What was Mitch going to say?
