It had been a month since I'd last seen Ariana. We were trying to finish out the Meadow Ridge neighborhood pretty quickly, and we didn't have enough hands, so me, my brothers and my dad had been helping out on the construction site. I was in charge of painting the interior of the houses since I had already done the electrical work for them and done flooring. I was painting a room when my phone rang. I took it out and answered it.


"Y/N Ledger? Hi, this is Ariana Grande, international pop star. I was wondering if I could steal you away from work for the night to have dinner with me and few friends." The girl said.

"And what time would this be?" I asked.

"Probably in the next hour or so." Ariana told me.

"Ah I think I can be there in maybe an hour and thirty. I'm currently painting a bedroom." I told her.

"Ooh what color?" She asked.

"Deez nuts. I'll see you in an hour and a half." I said.

"I hate you. Bye." She told me. I laughed and put my phone back in my pocket. After about two hours, I finally finished. I immediately jumped in my work truck and drove to Ariana's house which was thirty minutes away. I ran to the door as fast as I could and rang the doorbell. A brown haired man opened the door.

"Hi! I'm Dalton. You must be Y/N." He said. I shook his hand. He was wearing a dress shirt with slacks. As we walked in everyone was dressed up. My cheeks immediately turned red. I was wearing basketball shorts with a wife beater and some Vans not to mention I was covered in paint.

"Well this is pretty awkward." I said. Ariana ran up and hugged me.

"I thought you weren't coming asshole." She said hitting me.

"Sorry I was painting a room by myself. I'll be sure to just throw the buckets at the wall so that I can get here on time." I told her. An older lady stood up and hugged me.

"Y/N, this is my mom Joan." Ariana said. I pulled away from the hug and shook her hand as well.

"It's nice to meet you. I'm Y/N Ledger." I told her.

"Ew why do you talk like that to adults?" She asked.

"Ariana, we are adults." I said. She rolled her eyes.

"I just want to thank you so much for saving my little girl. I'm so thankful. How could I ever repay you?" She said.

"I promise anything she wants she has." Ariana said.

"How would you know that?" I asked.

"Open up your bank account. Open up your Wells Fargo app right now." She said.

"No, I will not. And not all of my money is in my bank account for your information." I told her.

"Oh yeah. Where is it?" She asked.

"Up your butt." I said. She hit me, and I dodged it. "Weave."

"Seems like you two know each other well." Dalton interrupted.
