Strange Love

Who knew that an encounter in a supermarket would result in this? Not Rose, that's for sure.


11. Opening Up To Luke

I walked back downstairs and over everyone. I slid into a seat next to Harry, who immediately put his arm around me. No one noticed the change in my behavior. They were all talking about One Direction's concert tonight that we were all going to. I was excited before but now I just feel drained. Emotionally drained. I picked at my food and that was when Lexi knew something was wrong as I usually eat really quickly. 

"What's wrong Rose?" She asked, causing all heads to turn towards me. I looked up at Harry who looked concerned so I shook my head. I didn't want to worry them.


She looked skeptical, but said nothing. She must have realized that I didn't want to talk about it. That's one of the great things about Lexi; if she knew you didn't want to talk about something, she'd change the subject. Which is exactly what she did.

"So what time is the concert?" She asked,

"7:30." Liam answered, as Harry placed a kiss on the top of my head.

"Are you sure you're okay?" He whispered in my ear softly and I shivered.

"I'm fine." I whispered back, leaning up to kiss him once. 

"WHAT THE HELL!" Jake suddenly shouted, making us all jump and look at him in shock. What was his problem? I wondered. Maybe he had some marshmallows shoved up his ass. Hahaha, now there's a mental image I didn't need.

"What, mate?" Zayn asked, raising his eyebrows as he spoke.

Jake didn't say anything. Instead he pointed and we all turned to face the direction he was pointing at and I stiffened in Harry's arms. He was stood in shock at the bottom of the stairs and his eyes were wide. It looked as though he were debating whether or not to come over, but eventually he decided against it and left. I knew that Lexi and Jake were going to speak up but I could also feel the tears building up so I was thankful when some fans walked over asking for pictures.

"You and Harry make a cute couple by the way." One of the girls spoke and I smiled at her gratefully.

"Thank you!" 

Once they had left, Lexi spoke. "Why the hell didn't you tell us?" 

I shrugged, "I didn't want you guys to worry."

"He came all the way from Australia, Rose! Of course we're going to worry."

"I'm going to kill him." Jake seethed, standing up.

I stood up too. "Just leave it please. We talked about everything and it's fine. Okay?"

I knew they caught on to the double meaning in my words. We did talk but when I said things were fine, I meant that I knew why he was here. In other words, we'd talk later.

"OH! ROSE! Your mum wants you to ring her, I forgot to tell you before." Jake looked at me and I frowned. He spoke to my mum? How? She was back in Australia...OH! It was an excuse, so I could leave. Bless my friends; they always knew when I needed time to myself.

"I'll go ring her then." Standing up again, I got out of my seat and said, "I'll be back." 


15 minutes later, I found myself crying at the park where we had just been. I knew I had to go back soon but until they called, I wasn't going to go find them. Knowing Michael and Niall, they'd still be in McDonald's eating. They eat way too much. Seriously, they should be fat, but they're not! THAT'S LIKE EVERY GIRLS DREAM!

"Rose?" Someone placed their hand on my shoulder and I looked up. I frowned when I saw that it was Luke.

"What are you doing here?" I asked as he sat down on the bench next to me,

"I knew there was something wrong when you came back from the toilet. That guy you saw was the same person that was on the phone the day we met, right?" 

I nodded, crying harder. Luke sighed, pulling me into his arms just like the first time he found me crying. I buried my head in his chest and grabbed his t-shirt, crying and crying and crying. He rubbed soothing circles on my back but it didn't do much to calm me down. 

"What happened?" Luke asked,

I knew that it was only a matter of time before someone asked, but I wasn't sure if I could tell them or not. What if they just left me? Figured out that I was too broken and left? Don't let my happy, carefree attitude fool you, I was broken inside. I was just a good at pretending nothing was wrong. Maybe I should become an actress. Hmmm.....

"You don't have to tell me, I won't force you." He whispered, but I knew that I had to tell someone and I trusted Luke. He proved I could trust him because he came after me, when the others stayed at McDonald's. 

"I want to tell you."

"Are you sure?" He asked as I sat up and looked at him through teary eyes. I nodded once before talking about the part of my life I wished I could forget.
