Chapter Two

Sheridan just stepped out of the shower when she heard the phone ringing. She checked the caller ID and saw that the call was coming in from the main house. She didn’t pick it up in case it was Julian and he wanted to tell her yet again to stay away from Luis. She just wasn’t in the mood and let it ring. Sheridan was rummaging through her closet looking for something to wear. Since it was the movies, she didn’t think that it was necessary to dress up, so she put on blue jeans and a tight white shirt and pulled out her black leather jacket. (No, not the one with the fur! That thing is hideous!) The phone rang again and saw the call as out of area and those were usually telemarketers, so again she let the phone ring. When the answering machine clicked on, she heard her father’s voice telling her to pick up the phone because he knew she was there. ‘Forget it. If he calls back I’ll just say I was drying my hair and I didn’t hear the phone. I’m not going to let them tell me I can’t see Luis. I’m a grown woman for God’s sake.’ When she was ready she grabbed her leopard purse and headed out the door.

Luis returned home from his day at Harmony PD and he too had dodged inquisitions about his date with Sheridan. First it was Sam, and then when he got home, he heard it from his mother. He loved his mother very much, but wished she would just stay out of it. He told her they weren’t flying off to Vegas to get hitched; they were just going to see a movie. He of course apologized for being out of line, and he knew she was just looking out for him, but he was so sick of everyone telling him how getting involved with Sheridan would be a disaster. ‘How could getting involved with such a wonderful woman be anything but terrific? It’s my life. I’m a grown man for God’s sake…I can go out whomever I want.’ He took a quick shower and shaved. He put on jeans and a black turtleneck sweater. He put on some cologne and then he heard the doorbell.

Miguel answered the door and let Sheridan in. "Hey Sheridan."

"Hi Miguel. How are you?"

"I’m good. Luis should be out in just a second. This is kinda strange you picking him up for a date."

Sheridan smiled at him. "Why is it strange? This is a new millennium, and if a girl wants to ask out a boy and pick up her date, it’s her prerogative."

Miguel laughed. "Luis was right about you."

"Was he…what did he say about me?" she asked with a raised brow. Sheridan’s curiosity was peaked now.

Luis heard Miguel and decided to save Sheridan from this. "Hey Sheridan. Miguel, don’t you have something else to do?" Sheridan fought back her grin.

"Um, no not really."

"Yeah, Miguel was just about to tell me something interesting and I’d really like to hear it," Sheridan said.

"Wow, look at the time. I think we should get going. We don’t want to be late for the movie," Luis said back.

"Smooth Officer. I guess you’re off the hook this time. Miguel, it was great seeing you again."

"You too, Sheridan. You guys have fun. See ya, bro," Miguel said with a smile. Luis turned around and mouthed "you’re dead" and Miguel just laughed at him. ‘I know why Luis likes her so much. WOW!’

Sheridan and Luis were walking out to her car. "What, no flowers?" Luis teased. Sheridan smacked him playfully on the arm.

"Hey, I threw popcorn and Goobers into the deal…"

"MILK DUDS," he corrected.

"Oh right. Milk Duds. I threw popcorn and Milk Duds into the deal. What more do you want?" she joked back.

‘Oh I have a few ideas. Get a hold of yourself man.’ Luis opened her door for her.

"Thanks, Luis." He got into the car and she started it up and forgot she had the stereo turned way up. Suddenly, Ants Marching by Dave Matthews was playing.

"BIG DAVE MATTHEWS FAN HUH?" Luis asked loudly. Sheridan turned the music down.

"I’m sorry. I just love that song, and when I hear it, I have to turn it up. I forgot to turn it down before I got out of the car."

"That’s okay. I love that song too. This is a great CD."

"Yeah, it’s one of my favorites," Sheridan replied. Ants Marching was over and the next song Lover Lay Down came on. Sheridan felt herself thinking about this song and remembered her dreams about Luis.

Luis was listening to the song too and he felt himself get hot. "Is it hot in here?" they said simultaneously. They both laughed. Sheridan and Luis both reached to turn the heat down and brushed hands. She felt the electricity shoot through her at that moment.

"Uh, sorry, the heater in this car is a little whacked. I really should have it looked at," she said. "So, are you excited about seeing this movie or what, Luis?"

Luis chuckled at her. "Oh yeah. Theresa and Whitney already went to the early show so I heard them singing the songs while I was getting ready."

"Well, you will like it so much that you will be singing the songs too."

"I don’t know about that, Sheridan. I may be a lot of things, but a guy that walks around singing songs from musicals isn’t one of them."

"Is that so?"

"Yes, that is so, Ms. Crane."

"Luis, I happen to know, from a very reliable source, that you had a major role in your high school musical…what was it again? Oh that’s right, West Side Story."

Luis felt his cheeks glowing red. "How, how did you hear about that?"

"Ha, ha, ha…busted!"

"Sheridan, who told you about that?"


"Aww man…Judas! I’ll have you know that I got corralled into doing that, and it wasn’t the lead. I didn’t play Tony, I was Bernardo."

"I’m sure you were a very good Bernardo, Luis…I would’ve paid big money to see you." Sheridan couldn’t contain her laughter any longer and let it out.

"You think you’re just so funny don’t you?"

"Well…sometimes…yes I do," she said between her peels of laughter.

"Hey, we’re here, so you think maybe you could cut me a little slack?"

"Oh Luis, I’m just teasing. But okay, I’ll stop."

"Thank you."

They got out of the car and headed for the Rialto. ‘I have to get one last dig in. He’s just too cute when he’s embarrassed.’ "Tonight, tonight, won’t be just any night…" Sheridan began singing. Luis stopped in his tracks and just smirked at her. Sheridan turned around and saw Luis smirking at her. "What?" she asked innocently and shrugging her shoulders.

"I’m gonna get you for that," he said.

"Is that so, Officer?"

"Mmm hmm. It certainly is. You won’t know where or when, but I will get you back." He finally couldn’t hold it back and flashed a huge grin in her direction. ‘She’s so different than I thought. It’s fun to see this side of her.’

"Come on, Bernardo, I’ll buy you some Milk Duds now." He rolled his eyes at her and she grabbed him by the arm and pulled him in the direction of the snack bar.

After they bought their snacks, they went to find seats. No one else had arrived yet, so they were all alone in the theater. "Are these seats okay Luis?"

"Yeah, fine with me." The two got situated in their seats and Sheridan stood up to take her jacket off. ‘Wow, I can’t believe an outfit that simple looks that good on her.’

She sat back down and reached for her drink when she saw Luis staring at her. "What?"

"I forgot to tell you how great you look tonight."

Sheridan felt herself blushing. "Thank you. You don’t look so shabby yourself." ‘God, he looks good. What I wouldn’t give for us to remain alone in this theater…AAH! Stop it Sheridan.’ "Luis?"


Sheridan grinned slyly at Luis before she proceeded with her question. "Will you please sing a little somethin’ from West Side Story?" Luis picked up a handful of popcorn and tossed it at her. Sheridan started giggling and she picked up some of the kernels he threw at her and tossed them back.

"That’s it, Sheridan. I told you I would get you back, and you didn’t leave well enough alone. Now, you’re gonna have to pay." He reached over and started tickling her and she started laughing and squealing uncontrollably.

"Luuuuuuuiiiiiiiiis! Ahahaha…STOP! Please…stop…tickling…me!" She managed to sputter between giggles.

Luis was laughing too and started throwing more popcorn at her. "Nope. You asked for it, now I’m getting you back."

Sheridan and Luis were laughing loudly and didn’t notice someone approaching them. "Excuse me, is there a problem here?" Luis stopped tickling Sheridan and she managed to get her laughing under control. They looked up to see a boy around 16 sporting a vest and matching bow tie. Sheridan tried not to laugh and buried her face into Luis and left him to deal with the boy.

"Um, no, there’s no problem. We just got a little carried away. Sorry."

"Miss, was this man bothering you?"

Sheridan looked up. "No, he wasn’t bothering me, just getting me back is all. Everything’s fine thank you."

"Okay, but the movie is about to start and there are more patrons coming in, so if you could please keep it down."

"We will, sorry," Luis said.

"And if this man gives you any trouble, you can tell me and I’ll take care of it," said the boy. Luis covered his mouth with his hand as to not laugh in his face.

"Thank you," Sheridan said. They waited until the boy was out of earshot and busted out laughing.

"Well Sheridan, looks like you have an admirer. You want him to be your date tonight?"

"And give you reason to arrest me for dating jailbait? I don’t think so." She smiled at him and they both began laughing again.

By this time, there were more people in the theater and the movie was about to start. There was a woman a couple of rows in front of them that turned around and asked them to please be quiet. Both Sheridan and Luis found this funny but tried to keep their laughing fits as silent as possible. Sheridan however, was laughing so hard that tears were in her eyes. Once the previews started, she was able to get herself under control. She looked over at Luis and he stuck his tongue out at her. This prompted more laughter from Sheridan and another nasty look from the woman in front of them. She smacked Luis on the arm. "You’re so bad."

"I know," he replied.

"If you keep this up," Sheridan whispered, "I’ll go get boy wonder the manager and he can deal with you."

Luis just smiled at her. "I’ll behave, scouts honor."

"Yeah, well, put some Milk Duds in your mouth. That should keep you quiet for awhile." She smiled sweetly at him and turned back to face the movie screen.

The movie was about to start and Luis leaned over and whispered in Sheridan’s ear. "If I forget to tell you later, I had a really great time tonight."

Sheridan turned her head and her face was inches from Luis’. "Me too." They stared into each other’s eyes and started to lean in but the opening number kicked in and they both jumped and the moment was lost.

I solve my problems and I see the light
We gotta plug and think, we gotta feed it right
There ain't no danger we can go to far
We start believing now but we can be what we are

Grease is the word
They think our love is just a growing pain
Why don't they understand, It's just a crying shame
Their lips are lying only real is real
We start to find out now we got to be what we be

Grease is the word
It's got groove it's got meaning
Grease is the time, is the place is the motion
Grease is the way we are feeling
We take the pressure and we throw away
Conventionality belongs to yesterday
There is a chance that we can make it so far
We start believing now but we can be who we are

Grease is the word
It's got groove it's got meaning
Grease is the time, is the place is the motion
Grease is the way we are feeling

Summer Nights began and Sheridan’s eyes lit up. She started humming along and swaying in her seat. Luis found her more amusing to watch than the movie. When Greased Lightning came on, Sheridan looked over at Luis and noticed he was singing along and he knew the words. ‘Hmm…little liar. He has seen this movie before. Oh, he is something else. I wonder if I should bust him now or after the movie? I’ll let it slide, we are already in enough trouble as is with wonder boy.’ She couldn’t stop thinking about how much fun she was having. Being close to Luis was making it hard to concentrate on the movie. She felt herself staring longer than she meant to and Luis looked over at her. She kept staring at his mouth and longed to kiss him. She was about to say to hell with the movie and just attack him and she started to lean in towards him, but the teenagers sitting next to them got up to use the bathroom and they were, once again, interrupted. ‘Ugh, stupid kids.’ Luis thought.

The movie was almost over and Sheridan had tried to keep herself from looking at Luis. Then, her favorite song came on, and she just had to sing along.

I got chills they're multiplying
And I'm losing control
Cause the power you're supplying
It's Electrifying!

‘It’s definitely electrifying being with Sheridan.’

You better shape up cause I need a man
And my heart is set on you
You better shape up, you better understand
To my heart I must be true

‘My heart is definitely set on Luis.’

You're the one that I want ho ho ho honey
You're the one that I want ho ho ho honey
You're the one that I want ho ho ho honey
The one that I need oh yes indeed

If you feel the wave affection
Your to shy to convey
Meditate in my direction
Feel your way

I better shape up, cause you need a man (I need a man)
Who can keep me satisfied
I better shape up, if I'm gonna prove (you better prove)
That my faith is justified
Are you sure? Yes I'm sure deep down inside

You're the one that I want ho ho ho honey
You're the one that I want ho ho ho honey
You're the one that I want ho ho ho honey
The one that I need oh yes indeed

You're the one that I want ho ho ho honey
You're the one that I want ho ho ho honey
You're the one that I want ho ho ho honey
The one that I need oh yes indeed

You're the one that I want ho ho ho honey
You're the one that I want ho ho ho honey
You're the one that I want ho ho ho honey
The one that I need oh yes indeed

You're the one that I want ho ho ho honey
You're the one that I want ho ho ho honey
You're the one that I want ho ho ho honey
The one that I need oh yes indeed

After the movie was over, Sheridan and Luis stood up to leave and he helped her with her jacket. He noticed that she had a piece of popcorn in her hair from their little battle earlier and he went to get it out for her. "Hold still."

Sheridan saw Luis’ hand coming toward her face and wondered what he was doing. ‘I hope he kisses me.’

"You have…a piece of popcorn in your hair." He got the popcorn out for her and threw it on the ground.

She grinned at him. "I wonder how that got there?"

"I have no idea," he said sarcastically. "Must’ve been the popcorn fairy."

"The popcorn fairy?" she asked.


"Luis, you’re crazy." ‘Yeah, about you.’ "Thank you. Shall we go?"

"We shall."

They walked out of their movie theater and Luis noticed that little Skippy the manager kept staring at Sheridan. "Hey Sheridan, your boyfriend wants to say goodnight." Sheridan turned around and saw that guy looking at her. She waved to him and the boy dropped the broom he was sweeping up popcorn with. She tried not to laugh and Luis turned his head so he could laugh. Once they were outside, both couldn’t contain their laughter any longer.

"Luis, we are so bad, you know that right?"

"Yeah, but it was fun."

"It was fun. I haven’t had that kind of fun in I don’t know when," Sheridan said.

"Me neither. I felt like I was in high school again."

"Luis, you lied to me." Luis looked really confused.

"What are you talking about, Sheridan?"

"The movie. You’ve seen it before. Don’t deny it, I saw you singing Greased Lightning…you knew every word."

Luis looked down at his feet and then met Sheridan’s eyes. "Okay! I surrender. You caught me. I have seen that movie before."

"Were you trying to hide your musical background from me?" she asked teasingly. "Well, I guess if I was, it doesn’t matter, because you found me out…on more than one account I might add." She smiled and nodded acknowledging her victory.

"Hey Luis, do you have to work tomorrow?"

"Nope, I actually have the entire weekend off. Why?"

"Well, I was just wondering if you were tired or not, because I kinda feel like taking a walk."

"A walk sounds good." They started walking away from the Rialto and Luis grabbed Sheridan’s hand and locked his fingers with hers. Sheridan looked down at her hand and then at Luis and smiled.

They walked through the park still hand in hand talking and getting to know one another better. "Hey Luis, I just got a great idea for the dance."

"You did? What is it?"

"What about a sock hop?" "A sock hop huh? Did the movie inspire you?" He felt a grin tugging at the corners of his mouth.

"As a matter of fact…it did. What do you think? Do you like that idea?"

Luis rubbed his chin and hesitated before answering. "I think…it’s a great idea."

"Good, because it was either that or West Side Story." Sheridan had a huge grin plastered on her face.

"I’m gonna get you for that, Sheridan."

"Oh will you now? Well, come and get me then, Officer," Sheridan said and then she took off running. Granted Sheridan was a fast runner, but with the boots she had on, they made the task of running difficult so Luis caught up rather quickly. Luis got in front of her blocking the way and she stopped. She was about to take off in another direction, but Luis grabbed her arm.

"Uh-uh. You’re not going anywhere." Sheridan was about to protest, but Luis pulled her in close to him. He put one hand behind her head and pulled her in and kissed her with everything he had in him. Sheridan responded hungrily. Luis wrapped both of his arms around her waist and she had her hands in his hair.

When the kiss ended, their eyes met and they spoke volumes in that one look. Sheridan was the first to speak. "If that is my punishment for teasing you, remind me to do it more often." Luis smiled and pulled her close to him and hugged her. He didn’t want to let go. This night was perfect.

‘I’m so glad that I finally kissed her. It was better than I expected…It was perfect.’

Sheridan rested her head on his shoulder. She didn’t want this night to end. ‘That was the most amazing kiss. That put all of my fantasies to shame. I want this night to last forever.’ She started to think about her family and what they would do, but she forced those thoughts out of her head. If she and Luis were going to have a real relationship, she knew they had a lot of issues to talk about and work through. But, for tonight, it was just about the two of them. No one else in the world mattered.

"Sheridan," Luis began as he pulled out of their hug. "We need to talk."

"No, Luis. We’re not going to do this now. I have already decided that I want this night to be perfect, so no talk about my family or anyone else who thinks it is a bad idea that we are together…because I don’t care what they think, it’s what we think that matters the most." She was out of breath after she spit that out as fast as she possibly could.

Luis stifled a grin. "Are you finished?" he asked.

Sheridan took a deep breath. "Yeah."

"Well, good. I know we have a lot to talk about, but that isn’t what I was going to ask you."

"It isn’t?" she asked confused.

"Nope. What I wanted to ask you was…will you go to the dance with me?" She felt a big weight lifted from her shoulders. When she didn’t answer right away he made puppy dog eyes at her and she felt her heart melt.

"Yes, Luis, I would love to go to the dance with you."

"Good." He kissed her once more and wrapped her up in another hug. This time he picked her up and swung her around causing squeals of laughter from Sheridan.

"So, you ready for me to take you home, Officer?"

"Not especially, but seeing as it is…2:30, maybe we should get home."

"Yeah. Let’s go." Sheridan held out her hand for Luis to take but he was looking in his coat for something. "What are you looking for, Luis?"

"Oh, something that I’ve had for awhile but forgot to give you." He finally found it and handed Sheridan a tiny white envelope.

"What’s this?"

"Well, open it and find out silly!" Sheridan opened the envelope and pulled out a small Valentine. It had a picture of a monkey on it and it said "I’m bananas for you" and on the back it said "Love, Luis".

"Mikey was at the Youth Center last week filling out his Valentine’s for all the little girls in his class, so I gave him a pop in exchange for one of the cards. I just forgot to give it to you."

Sheridan smiled at him. "This is the best Valentine’s card I’ve ever received. I love it." Sheridan tilted her head up and kissed Luis. "Thank you."

"You’re welcome."
Luis grabbed Sheridan’s hand and they walked back to her car.

Sheridan pulled up to the Lopez-Fitzgerald house and walked with Luis to the door. Luis took one of Sheridan’s hands and kissed it. "Thank you for a wonderful evening. You are a great date."

"Well, thank you for saying yes, you’re a pretty terrific date yourself. And thanks for the Valentine. I love it," Sheridan responded. Luis pulled Sheridan in close to him and wrapped his arms around her. He leaned in and kissed her again.

"You wanna come inside?" he asked against her mouth.

"Mmm, yeah, but I can’t. If I come inside, I may never leave."

Luis smiled. "That’s okay with me." She hit him jokingly on the arm. She kissed him once more.

"Goodnight Luis. Call me tomorrow."

"I definitely will. Goodnight." He watched her walk to her car and waved goodbye before he went inside.

Luis brushed his teeth and got into bed thinking about his date with Sheridan. He smiled thinking about all of the fun they had and how special she is. He decided to call her and say goodnight.

Sheridan was getting ready for bed and had a mouthful of toothpaste when she heard the phone ring. She looked at the caller ID and it was Luis. She didn’t want to miss the call, so she answered as best she could with her mouthful of toothpaste. "Hrlo?" she managed to say.


"Mrmph." He heard her drop the phone and wondered if everything was okay. Meanwhile, Sheridan ran to the bathroom and spit out her toothpaste and ran back to the phone.


"Sheridan, are you okay?"

"Oh, yeah I’m fine. I had a mouthful of toothpaste and I couldn’t talk very well, but I didn’t want to miss your call."

"I see. Well, I just wanted to call and say ‘goodnight’ and I figured you wouldn’t be asleep yet."

‘He is so sweet. He thinks of everything.’ "Thanks Luis. Nope, I’m not asleep yet. I’m getting into bed as we speak though."

‘Well, that definitely paints a picture I can take to my dreams,’ Luis thought. "Me too."

‘That image is certainly one to send the mind into overdrive!’ she thought.

"I had a really good time tonight, Sheridan. I just wanted you to know that."

"Well, I’m glad. I had an amazing time tonight, too." Luis grinned on the other end of the phone. "So, Officer, did you call to sing me a lullaby?" Sheridan teased.

She heard Luis snickering on the other end. "You had to say that didn’t you?"

"Mmm hmm…you know how I can be, Luis."

"Yes, I’m beginning to realize. You know what that means don’t you?" he asked.

"Um…that you will give me my punishment the next time I see you?" she asked hopefully.

"Cute, very cute. I’m afraid that doesn’t work every time. I will just have to find something else." Luis replied. He loved teasing her.

"Well, that’s a real bummer. What are your plans tomorrow?"

"Hmm…I thought that I’d call this beautiful blonde I know and see what she’s doing."

"Really…anyone I know?" she asked, playing along.

"Nah, I doubt it. What about you?"

"Well, let’s see…I have this dance to plan, and I thought about enlisting the help of this great looking cop, but one never can tell."

"I’m sure whoever it is would be crazy to pass up an offer like that," Luis said.

"Thank you. Well, I’m gonna turn in."

"Me too. Sweet dreams, Sheridan."

"You too, Luis. Thanks for calling. Goodnight."

"Night." They each hung up the phone and drifted off to sleep.
