Strange Love

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


8. The Phone Call

Me, Lexi and Jake were currently sat at the arena watching Luke, Michael, Calum and Ashton rehearse. Turns out they were the band 5 Seconds Of Summer, which explained where I knew them from as I had a few of their songs on my phone. Go me! One Direction had left because they had an interview to go to but they promised they would be back in time for the show. 

"I DEDICATE THIS SONG TO YOU, THE ONE WHO NEVER SEES THE TRUTH!" Me and Lexi sang along as they rehearsed my favourite song of theirs; Heartbreak Girl.

Once they'd finished their rehearsal, they put down their guitars and Ashton placed his drum sticks down, they all jumped off the stage and sat walked over to where we were sat on the floor. Sitting down with us, we were sat in a circle and got to know more about each other. 

We'd been doing this for about half an hour and were surprisingly having a good time when my phone rang. Taking it out of my pocket, I flipped it the right way up and frowned when I saw an unknown number flashing across the screen. 

"Who is it?" Lexi and Jake asked at the same time. I knew they were worried when my phone went off, just as I was because they were the only two people who knew about my life.

Standing up, I looked at them all and smiled once before telling them I was going to answer it outside before I walked off. I didn't actually go outside. I just went backstage. 

"Hello?" I asked, leaning against the wall.

"So I do have the right number this time." Someone spoke on the other end of the phone and I froze in shock. couldn't be? Could it? How was it possible?

"Is this really you?" I asked, running a hand through my hair. Something I always did when I was frustrated. 

"Yes, it's me. I actually called for a reason."

"What reason?" I frowned,

"I want you to come back to me." 

My jaw dropped at his words as my mind processed them. After a few minutes of silence, I shook my head before realizing he couldn't actually see me.

"You know that's not going to happen." I told him before hanging up.

I sank down the wall and just sat there for a while. That conversation hadn't lasted long but it left me with so many questions.  I silently thought about the phone call when I heard a voice calling my name. Looking up, I saw Luke walking over.

"Hey Luke." I spoke, plastering a fake smile on my face. "What's up?"

"Lexi sent me to look for you because you've been half an hour."

Wow, had time really passed that quickly? I must have said that out loud as Luke nodded before sitting next to me.

"What's wrong?" He asked finally, turning his body to face me.

"Nothing." I shook my head, looking at him and smiling again. 

"I can see it in your eyes that you're hurt, so what's wrong?" He asked again and I don't know why or what came over me but suddenly, I was in tears. Luke quickly pulled me into his embrace and I rested my head on his shoulder as I cried. He rubbed my back soothingly, not saying anything. He seemed to know I wasn't ready to talk and I was glad that he didn't ask me anything. 

"Are you okay?" He asked as I pulled away. 

"Yeah, thanks. Sorry about your t-shirt though..." I trailed off, looking at the black stains from my make up that had now stained his top. Woops, I thought.

"Do you want to talk about it?" He asked, but before I could speak, I heard Lexi shouting me. I sighed, grabbing Luke's hand and walking back around. 

They were all still sat on the floor where we had left them so I wiped my eyes and ran over, dragging Luke who was struggling to keep up.

"HURRY UP SLOW POKE!" I screamed, laughing as I pulled him along.

"You run too fast!" He spoke as I sat down.

I turned to face everyone and they all frowned at Luke's t-shirt. I giggled and looked down, feeling uncomfortable.

"Rose...who was that on the phone?" Jake asked carefully. 

"You already know." I answered, feeling the tears build up in my eyes once again. I hadn't cried this much since I'd moved with Lexi. In fact, I couldn't even remember the last time I cried. 

Jake tensed at my words and Lexi glared at the ground. I looked at Jake and hoped he'd calm down. For a gay guy, he was tough. You wouldn't know he was gay unless he told you or he felt comfortable enough to be himself around you.

"What did he want?" Lexi asked through clenched teeth.

"He wants me to move back in with him."

Lexi burst into laughter and after a few minutes, calmed down. "'re serious?"

I nodded.

"You aren't going back there, so it's fine!"

"Well....I'm confused." Ashton spoke and the others nodded along.

"Maybe you should tell them." 

I shook my head. "I dunno if I can."

"Why? You can trust us." Calum spoke this time but I shook my head.

"Maybe when I know you better."
