Joey smiled up at the twins, studying their body-language and demeanor for a moment before taking the time to actually acknowledge himself to them. No doubt they were newcomers, he certainly hadn't recognized them at first glance. Nevertheless, he felt oddly connected to them. It hadn't been so long since it was he who had been the kid that just moved into town. They would adjust soon enough, everyone did."Yo, what's up?"
he greeted lightheartedly, attempting to make the twins feel more comfortable in first-impression kind of situation. They hadn't been doing to well to begin with.
A small vibration in the pocket of his jeans garnered his attention for a moment. In a single motion he slide the cellphone out of his pocket and scrutinized the screen.
His heart lurched once he read the name Taylor
within the notification bubble. A grin formed on his face as he replied back, not wanting to keep the girl of his dreams waiting.
"Hangin out at the Cafe with Liv and friends. U want in?"
Jojo paused a moment before hitting the send button, considering whether or not it would be appropriate of him to invite her the cafe like that. He didn't want to seem presumptuous and assume she wasn't busy or something. Nor did he want to come off as too interested in hanging out. He was ready for a lot of things, but messing up his friendship with Taylor wasn't one of them.Fuck it, Taylor's cool.
he asserted and it hit send resolutely.
He looked back up from his phone in time to hear Olivia turn down Andrew's offer to go shopping for her excursion to the lake. That brought Josh back to his earlier question."Speaking of lakes; you think going alone is a good idea? I mean, I don't doubt the ability of Miss Olivia Bad-ass, but safety in numbers, know what I'm saying?"
