    Carl sat next to Sean, drinking his coffee as the pair blatantly ignored the two women sat opposite them. Looking to Cassidy, he frowned. "What're you looking at?" He asked rudely. "Don't you two have dumb women things to talk about?"

    Luke lead the way into the cafe - nestled down the side of an alleyway, glad to get out of the rain. "What're you having?" He turned to ask Michael, pushing his hair from his face as he studied his best friend. Looking around the relatively quiet cafe, Luke's eyes settled on two couples sat by the window, quickly pulling his gaze away as one of the men looked up. "Douchebags, 11 o'clock."

    Diana sipped her Cola with a frown, rolling her eyes as Sean focused on his phone, yet still managed to hold a conversation with Carl with no problem. Looking to Cassidy, clearly defeated, Diana shrugged her shoulders lightly, at a dead end. It had been like this for months with Sean, and she knew Cassidy was in the same boat.

    Cassidy frowned slightly when she heard Carl and she rolled her eyes slightly. She wasn't sure what had changed between them or why Carl had become such a dick the past few months, but it was honestly getting exhausting dealing with it. Noticing Diana's look, she sighed, returning the shrug, wondering if maybe they should just leave. She doubted either Carl or Sean would even notice.

    Sean listened to Carl talk, offering an amused look while they chatted, though his gaze didn't leave his phone as he fiddled with it. Hearing Carl's words, he looked up, wondering what the girls were doing now, sure that they were just being nuisances. Frowning at the look Diana had, he scoffed. "You could at least pretend to be enjoying yourself," he said, rolling his eyes, "Honestly, sulking like that's unattractive."

    "I think I'll grab a snack or something," Michael admitted as he followed his friend into the cafe, peering towards the counter. With how quiet the cafe was, he frowned slightly when he overheard a guy talking and he looked over, nodding in acknowledgement to Luke's words. "Looks like it." He frowned, looking away to avoid attracting attention to either himself or Luke. "I don't think I'll ever understand people like that."

    Luke nodded in agreement, and although he wanted to tear his gaze away from the two couples, he couldn't help but that the scene was going to explode. Putting in his order for an iced coffee and a doughnut, something Luke always opted for, he crossed his arms over his chest and watched the situation carefully, waiting for Michael. A huge part of him was ready to step in if the men - or boys, in this case - continued to be so cruel.

    Carl laughed and nodded along to Sean's words. "He's right, sulking isn't cute on you two." He frowned over at Cassidy disapprovingly. "It makes Sean and me look bad." He aimed the comment to Cassidy. "So lighten the fuck up and drink your coffee."

    Diana frowned at Sean's words. "If we're being so unattractive, we'll just leave." She suggested, trying to hold back from making a scene in front of everyone there, despite the cafe being quiet. Sean had been so callous recently, and Diana didn't understand or even know what she'd done wrong, and there was a limit to her patience, and she knew Cassidy was in the same situation.

    Michael ordered what he wanted, frowning all the while because he could hear the couples from where he and Luke were. He could just barely hear them, but he still heard them nonetheless, and he could feel his jaw clenching because what kind of guys treated girls like that? Peering over at the couples, his gaze fell on the blonde, the one whose boyfriend had made a comment about sulking being unattractive in the first place, and he wondered how in the hell somebody could look at her and ever think to say anything about her ever being unattractive in any circumstance.

    Sean snorted in response, scowling slightly. "We both know you won't do that," he said easily in response, rolling his eyes as he tapped away at his phone, not even bothering to lift his gaze to give Diana any sort of real attention. "So how about you sit there, enjoy your meal, and put a smile on that face? You're embarrassing yourselves and us."

    Cassidy could feel herself sinking in her seat as she listened to Carl, watching him with surprise. For a moment, she felt hurt by his words, because there'd been a time where she'd been sure she and Carl were a good couple. But, once the hurt passed, she felt a surge of anger from all the cruel words, all the times he ignored her, and, before she could stop herself, she stood up. "You're right, it'd be a shame to waste my coffee," she said, offering a too-sweet smile before her expression dropped and she threw her coffee straight at him - at least it had cooled down from how long they'd all been sitting there in silence, so it wouldn't burn him, but it'd at least teach him a lesson.

    "Are you fucking crazy, Cassidy?!" Carl snapped, standing up. The coffee wasn't hot, but still, he was wearing a crisp, white shirt, and Cassidy had just completely ruined it. "What the fuck is your problem?" He asked. "Idiot."

    Diana covered her mouth so Sean wouldn't see her laughing at what Cassidy just did. "You know what," she spoke up, standing to her feet, pulling Cassidy up with her. "You're right. We're embarrassing ourselves by being seen with the likes of you two." She looked to Cassidy. "There's plenty of other fish in the sea."

    Luke watched the scenario unfold, laughing as the beautiful girl that had so easily caught his attention threw her coffee over her fool of a boyfriend. "Yes!" He clapped his hands, unable to help himself. "You go, girl!" His smile widened, showing Cassidy he was serious.

    Cassidy clenched her jaw as she listened to Carl. “I'm not an idiot, you asshole,” she said in response, “You deserve that.” Shaking her head, she backed away from the table when Diana had pulled her up, though she paused when she heard somebody clapping and she peered over at the guy with surprise, mildly embarrassed by her outburst.

    Sean blinked as he watched Diana before he scowled slightly. “What the hell do you think you're doing?” he asked as he leaned forward, “You can't just leave. Stop being a bitch and sit down before you embarrass yourself and me more.”

    Michael frowned deeply as he watched, more than anything wanting to walk over there to teach that guy a thing or two, because he was being such a jerk to Diana. While he didn't know Diana, he knew that she didn't deserve to be treated like that - nobody did, but especially not her, in his eyes.

    Diana scoffed, throwing her bowl of pasta over Sean. "Go to Hell, asshole. We're done." She walked away from the table, pulling Cassidy with her, and although she was slightly embarrassed by her out of character behaviour, she certainly wasn't sorry for giving that douche what he deserved. "Lose my number." She told Sean, shaking her head.

    Carl's jaw clenched. "Cassidy, get back here!"

    Luke smiled at Cassidy reassuringly, seeing her cheeks redden, and he felt there was no need to be apologetic about her outburst, or even embarrassed by it, Luke felt, fully, that the men they were sat with deserved every bit of what they just had thrown to them. Watching the girls, Luke took the opportunity to approach. "I just need to tell you both that that was badass." He told them, mainly focusing on Cassidy, the girl and her bravery having captured his attention. "You deserve so much better."

    Sean gave a hiss with Diana’s actions, having thrown his arms up to protect himself, but he glared after her. “What the hell, Diana! This is a new shirt!” he yelled at her, watching her. “You can’t just walk away from me! Get back here!”

    Michael couldn’t help but to burst out into laughter as he saw the display, not caring that it attracted Sean’s attention, and he clapped his hands in approval. “Way to go,” he commented loudly, grinning over at the asshole who’d been treating Diana so poorly, before he peered over at Diana and thought, but made his way over. “I’m glad you did something and walked away from that situation,” he told Diana, “And in a completely brilliant, impressive way.” He grinned slightly. “Because, I was really close to stepping in to say something to that asshole myself.” He shifted a bit, taking her in. “I’m Michael, by the way.” He smiled, holding his hand out to her in greeting.

    Cassidy did her best to ignore Carl, though she followed Diana quietly, chewing on her lip, anxious about lifting her gaze. Hearing somebody approach them, though, she blinked, lifting her gaze to the men, her eyes falling on the one who’d spoken to them first, and she felt her heart calming with the sight of him, not sure how or why that was possible. “I, uh…” She trailed off, chewing on her lip. “Thanks. It was kind of… I don’t know, it just happened.”

    Diana walked away from the table, shaking her head as she rolled her eyes. Hearing footsteps approach, Diana lifted her gaze from the floor, and she blinked when she saw a beautiful stranger with the best smile. "Oh, uh." She laughed nervously, offering Michael a smile. "Thank you." She bit her lip, shrugging her shoulders. "I don't usually behave like that, but uh, guess he deserved it." She bit her lip, studying him, taking his hand when he offered it. "I'm Diana." Her smile grew, feeling happy to have Michael's attention. "It's nice to meet you, Michael."

    Luke grinned at Cassidy, his attention fully on her, just taking her in, amazed by how beautiful she was, amazed that someone could take her being theirs for granted. "Well, it was awesome, he deserved it." His grin grew cheekily with his words, unable to stop himself - Cassidy had done the right thing, and it was very rarely Luke saw a woman who knew her worth and was able to stand up for herself. "I was this close to stepping in, no woman deserves to be treated like garbage." His smile softened at that, wanting Cassidy to know he was serious, he was trustworthy. Extending his hand, Luke smiled. "I'm Luke, it's nice to meet you."

    Michael smiled with the mention of it and he nodded his head slightly. “He definitely deserved it. The entire thing was brilliant and I'm sorry you had to deal with somebody like that at all,” he told her quietly, because she definitely didn't deserve to be treated the way she had been. “It's nice to meet you, too. Honestly, you're an inspiration.”

    Cassidy watched him for a moment, though she offered a small, relieved smile, and she nodded slightly. “I guess I just got tired of dealing with it,” she murmured quietly, shifting a bit before she chewed on her lip, soon placing her hand in his to shake. “I'm Cassidy. It's nice to meet you, Luke.”

    Diana laughed with Michael's words. "Aren't you sweet?" She asked with a smile. "Thank you though." She told him, studying him for a long moment. "Guess you just get sick of dealing with that sort of behaviour after a while." She shrugged. "Sorry you had to witness it though, no matter how much of an inspiration I am." She winked teasingly, finding herself so drawn to this man.

    Luke nodded in understanding. "I get it." He reassured, smiling broadly. "You did what you needed to do, and it was awesome." He grinned. "Hey, how about we get out of here? I know a great little cafe up the road from here, if you're interested in something more fun, and away from that asshole." Luke smiled, deciding to let his bravery win, although he squeezed her hand as she shook his. "Cassidy - really pretty name."

    Michael grinned slightly as he examined her. “I try,” he told her quietly, “I'm glad you're okay, at least. And that you really gave that asshole what he deserved.” Because she definitely didn't deserve to be treated the way she had been. “You don't have to apologize, really. He's the one who screwed up.” He offered a smile. “You wanna go for a walk or something? If you're hungry, we could stop somewhere to eat?”

    Cassidy watched for a few moments, feeling herself relax, and she offered a small smile. “Well… Thank you,” she murmured quietly as she examined him for a moment. She chewed on her lip in thought but nodded. “Sure. Anything to get away from all of this, at this point.”

    Diana smiled as she saw Michael grin - just the sight of his smile brightening the world around them, as if Michael brought purpose back to her, as if he made living more than just a motion, more of an action. "I'd really love that, Michael." She told him with as she tucked a stray strand of her hair behind her ear, and the more distance she put between herself and that baby back at table four, the better she felt, as if the shackles that were on her wrists had suddenly disappeared. "How about the boardwalk?" She offered with a smile. "There's a sweet little place there." She offered.

    Luke chuckled with Cassidy's words about wanting to get away, but still, he couldn't deny that the sight of her chewing on her lip was one of the most gorgeous sights he'd ever seen. "I don't blame you one bit." He winked, glancing back over at Cassidy's ex, still amazed that a woman as beautiful as her came with the complete package - confidence, beauty, a sense of humour and a beautiful smile. Shifting so he could offer Cassidy his arm to hold onto, Luke's grin softened to a warm smile. "That cafe is better than this place, anyway." He winked, wondering if she'd accept his invitation.

    Michael couldn’t help the way his heart lit aflame when he saw Diana’s smile, his heart swelling when she tucked a strand of hair behind her ear, and he smiled. “Great. Then that’s what we’ll do,” he decided quietly, reaching to offer his hand out to her, wanting to make any contact he could with her, wanting to have her beside him, with him. “The boardwalk sounds good, yeah.” He nodded as he watched her, offering a grin. “What’s the place? We can head right over.” Anything to prolong the amount of time they got to spend together.

    Cassidy smiled as she listened to Luke, nodding slightly. “Well… Good,” she murmured quietly, because the last thing she wanted was for Luke to think poorly of her. When Luke offered his arm, though, her smile broadened to a grin, and she hooked her arm around his, nodding slightly. “I believe you on that. Easily. So, let’s go.” She motioned with her head for him to lead the way, eager to put some distance between herself and her now-ex.

    Diana looked to Michael as she accepted his offered hand into her own, squeezing her head gently as she stepped closer to him, leaving barely any space between them, returning his grin with a hint of mischief behind her eyes, something about the man wanting her to take risks, to be herself. "It's beautiful there, c'mon." And tugging him along, Diana laughed, looking over her shoulder at Michael. "Besides, you don't have to be a snooty asshole to eat there, and the food is way better."

    Luke grinned easily in return as Cassidy hooked her arm around his, and as she spoke, Luke found himself getting just a little more love drunk. He'd never known anyone to affect him so easily before, but Cassidy just did, in the most beautiful of ways, because she was the most beautiful person. "You know," Luke hummed as he lead Cassidy out of the door with his head held high. "Today's gonna be a good day, I'll make sure of it." And leading Cassidy down a narrow alleyway that held a beautiful cafe, Luke opened the door for her, hinting for her to go ahead. "Go find a seat. It should be empty in there, barely anyone knows about this place."
