Our Love

From New York to Melbourne, a small loft to a huge house. A new life, and a clean slate. Would it all be a life like any other, our would it change when a certain group of boys come into her life?


15. Catching up.

                 I wake up to an empty house, I walk down the hall and into the bathroom. I quickly brush my teeth and redo my ponytail. I slip a headband onto my head and walk down the stairs. Mom wasn't home, but the house was surprisingly clean. I go up to the refrigerator to find a note attached to it, I take it off and start to read it out loud.
                 "Lei, I knew how tired you were so I stayed back and cleaned up the house. I hope you had an amazing birthday and didn't let what happened bring you down. I was actually wondering if you could call me when you were done reading this. I want to ask you something. Love, Luke." I read, smiling.
                  I laugh quietly to myself and walk up the stairs and plop onto my bed, I grab my phone and look through my contacts to find Luke. I tapped his name with my finger and placed the phone onto my ear waiting for him to pick up.
                  "Good afternoon you," He said once he picked up.
                  "Damn, did I sleep that much?" I asked, rubbing my head.
                  "Yeah, it's only about 4 in the afternoon, no worries." He said laughing.
                  "Be quiet Brooks!" I say playfully.
                  He chuckled then sighed, "So uh Lei, I was wondering. If you would wanna come over tonight. Just to, you know. Uh catch up." He said quietly.
                   I smiled, "Hm, sure. What time you thinking?" 
                   "Well I was thinking at 7 we could hop in the car and stop by the store to buy some junk food and maybe rent a movie or something." He said.
                   "That works for me. I'll get into my best pair of sweats." I say, with a smile that hasn't been wiped off of my face.
                    "Alright, I'll catch you around alright?" He said.
                    "See you." I say as I hang up the phone.
                    My hearts beating fast, like it always did when I would talk to Luke. I snuggle up into my bed and turn on the TV, catching a few episodes of Ridiculousness. I feel my phone vibrate so I quickly grab it and see the text.
                     From: Skippp :)
                     Open your door, we need to talk.
                     To: Skippp :)
                     Key is in the plant, open up and put the key back. Lock the door once you're in. I'm in my room.
                     I put the phone on my table and get up out of the covers, sitting on my bed straight up. I hear someone walking up the stairs. Skip appears at my doorway and slowly comes in, closing the door behind him. He sits in the chair right next to my bed.
                     "Hey Skip." I say, half smiling.
                     "Lei, I'm just here to break the tension. I know what I did was wrong and I'm sorry I was the reason you and Luke broke up." He said quickly.
                     I sighed, "It's alright I guess. I mean I'm talking to Luke again, if that makes you feel any better." I say.
                     "That's good, I hope we can still be friends though. You know after all that has happened."  He said, awkwardly.
                      I nod, "Yeah of course we can!" I say pulling him into a hug.
                      He smiled, "So you think we can catch up tonight?" He asked.
                     I frowned, "Sorry Skip, I can't tonight. I'm hanging out with Luke today" I say awkwardly.
                     He looked at me confused, "Wait what?" He asked.
                     "I-I'm going to hang with Luke today, to um catch up." I said.
                     "Oh, I kind of heard about what happened at the party though. Even though I was downstairs the whole time and I don't talk to Luke." He said.
                     "You don't talk to Luke anymore?" I paused, "I didn't want to be the reason the Janoskians split up you know." I say, looking down.
                     "No, no you aren't, we'll get over it somehow don't worry." He said, rubbing his hands together.
                     Skip ended up staying over until about 6, then he finally got up and decided to head out. 
                    "Well I'll be off Lei, don't want to make you late to see Luke. I'll text you later or something." He said as he gets up.
                    I walk him out and to the door, "Nice talking to you Skip." I say smiling.
                    "Same here," He said hugging me.
                    I close the door and walk upstairs. I turn on the shower and grab my towel. I shower for about 20 minutes and get out. I slip on some black yoga pants that say 'PINK' on the butt, a white muscle shirt, a big grey hoodie that said 'Hollister' on it, and some light brown Uggs. I put my hair in a high messy bun, then looked in the mirror. I shrugged and grabbed my phone and closed the door to my room. I walked down the stairs, running into my mom.
                    "Where are you going?" She asked.
                    I smiled, "I'm going to hang out and watch movies with Luke." I said.
                    She smiled, "I knew he'd come around." She said as she walked into her room, "Have fun!"
                    I continue out and lock the door behind me, I cross the street and head over to the Brooks house. It's been a long time since I've been there, it actually felt kind of weird coming back. I knock on the door and wait a while, Luke finally opens up.
                    "Hey beautiful," He said as he saw me.
                    I stood on my tip toes and pecked him on the lips, "Hey cutie." I said, smiling.
                    He closed the door behind me and led me to the car, we both took our seats and put the seat belts on.
                    "I'm glad you came though you know." He said, turning the car on.
                    "Why wouldn't I? After the way you cleaned up I didn't know how I'd repay you." I said.
                    "Well you can repay me with this," He said, leaning into me.
                    Luke gave me a deep passionate kiss, it wasn't long before I kissed him back too. We stayed there for a while, not stopping. After we let go, he looked at me and winked then pulled out.
                    "That was easy, I guess you should do things for me a lot more often." I said cheekily.
                    "Oh don't worry, I will." He said, driving down and curving on the main road.
                    He plugs in his phone to the car and starts to play Believe Acoustic. He starts to sing along to the music while concentrating on the road. I stare at him, amazed while he sung. He didn't notice me until about after the second song.
                   "I've always loved the way you sing." I said to him, as he grabbed my hand.
                   "And I've always liked singing for you." He said smiling, "I used to sing a lot about you when we were on that break you know. Just hours and hours sitting with the guitar and singing about us." He said to me.
                  I smirked, "Really?"
                  "Yeah, I have something I wanna sing for you when we get home." He said, as he parked into the parking lot of the store.
                  I get out of the car and look at him, smiling. He wraps his arm around my waist as we walk in. We go straight to the food section and grab a bunch of chips, ice cream, candy, soda, and a bunch more. After a while we finally left with a bunch of stuff.
                 Luke pays for the stuff and looks at me, grabbing the bag. "What movie do you want to rent?" He said as we stand in front of the movie rental box.
                 "Let's watch the Notebook, we haven't watched it together yet." I said smiling.
                 He rents it out and we race to the car, he beat me by a landslide but I didn't care. We got into the car and Set this world on fire came into his phone. I looked at him, then smiled. I started to sing along loudly to the words.
                 "IF YOU'RE LONELY, I CAN BE THE ONE THAT YOU CALL! OH OH OH OH!" I shout.
                "You know the song?" He asked me.
                 "Of course I do! I bought it on iTunes and everything." I said as if it was something obvious.
               "The day you guys told me about the Janoskians and stuff I went and looked at your videos and just listened to your covers and stuff," I said, shrugging a bit.
               "So who's your fave?" He said playfully.
               "I am definitely
 a Luke girl! I ship us so hard." I said, winking.
               He started blushing then chuckled, "I've always loved your sense of humor."
               I smiled as we pulled into the driveway, we grabbed all of the stuff then headed inside. I walked into the living room to spot Jai.
               "Hey babe!" I said playfully to Jai as he brought me into a hug.
                "What's up?" He said, sitting back down.
               "Nothing, Luke invited me over for movies and stuff in his room so I'm just gonna chill." I said, looking at him.
               He smiled, "Don't do anything funny up there! I got an eye on you both." 
               I nodded and went upstairs, I saw Luke sitting on his bed practicing the song he was gonna sing. I came in and shut the door, sitting on the edge of his bed.
               "Yay! I've been waiting." I said smiling.
               He took a deep breath and started strumming the chords to 'Nothing like us' by Justin Bieber.

               'Lately I've been thinking, thinking 'bout what we had.
                I knew it was hard, it was all that we knew.
                Have you been drinking, to take all the pain away?
                I wish that I could give you what you deserve.
                Cause nothing could ever, ever replace you.
               Nothing could make me feel like you do.
               You know there's no one, I can relate to.
               And no we won't find a love that's so true. 
               There's nothing like us, there's nothing like you and me. 
               Together through the storm.
               There's nothing like us, there's nothing like you and me.
               Together, oh.'
I tried to hold back the tears but they streamed out bit by bit. I embraced Luke into a huge hug. I held him tight, like I was never going to let him go.
               "I love you Luke." I whisper quietly into his ear.
               "I love you too Lei." He said, laughing a bit.
               He wipes some tears off of my face and half smiles, dimming the lights. He wraps me into his arms as we watch the movie and eat the food. We had a great time I had to admit, Luke even cried at the end of the movie. When it was over we sat on the bed, looking at each other in the eye just talking about everything. 
               "So Lei, would you please be my girlfriend?" He asked me.
                I smiled, "Of course I would." I say, hugging him once more and giving him a kiss.
               I never really forgot why I loved Luke, I just always get more reasons to love him even more.
