I thought the hook-up was going to finally happen at a frat party, but after an ex causes a scene—his, and too many shots consumed—me, I ended up giving his roommate that honor. A month later, I peed on a stick. It sealed my fate. Epic sad story. Till now. Luke Hart is back in town. It’s up to me to make the first move.
