Love is like fire.It's beautiful and dangerous all at the same time.The perfect balance.That's what makes it the best thing a person could possibly feel.It's a risk,but it's worth it.

48. Chapter 48

Tessa's POV

My phone buzzed in my pocket and when I pulled it out I saw a text from Luke.

Are we telling them?

I quickly replied

No.We can't.At least not yet.I'll be there in a second just tell them I had to use the bathroom.

I left the store and made my way to the theatre.


Luke's POV

I went to the theatre and plastered on the most believable smile I could manage.

"So are you guys ready to get the tickets?"I asked.

"Yeah, just waiting on Julie and Cal.Where's Tess?"Joci asked.

I did my best to hide the pain I felt when she mentioned Tessa as I replied."Um..She had to go to the bathroom.She wanted me to go ahead.Should be here any minute."Lying was one of my least favorite things to do, especially to my family, but I would do anything for Tessa even if it meant I had to lie to two of the most important people in my life.

Calum, Julie, and Tessa all arrived at about the same time."So, Michael and Harry?"Julie asked as we were buying the tickets.

"Oh they've been here for about an hour.They already got their tickets.After they went to Gamestop they came to the arcade."Ashton explained.No one seemed to notice how nervous I was.My hands were literally shaking and I was doing everything in my power to keep myself from looking at Tessa.

I paid no attention to the movie and was beyond relief when it ended.This was slowly becoming worse and worse and I had the urge to just spill everything.I needed to talk to someone because my lies were eating me alive.I had to get away before I came out to everyone.During the car ride home everyone was talking, except for me and Tessa.I'm guessing she was acting like she was asleep or something so no one would be suspicious.I just continued to watch the road, hoping that the others wouldn't think anything of my silence.

When we got back to the house.Everyone went inside but me and Tessa.We started walking down the empty road with her head resting on my shoulder.

"Are you okay?"She asked.The pain in her voice was evident.

"No."I said honestly.Tears were threatening to spill down my face, but at this point I didn't really care."I honestly don't understand why..."

"Why I did this?"I nodded, not having the strength to speak."I did it because it was the best option for both of us."

"How?"I asked, trying my best to keep my voice from raising.Her believing that this was the best option bewildered me.

"It just is..."

"So it's better to feel all the pain at once than to let it hurt slightly over a long period of time?"

"It didn't just hurt slightly Luke.It killed me from the inside out."

"Like this is any better?!"She raised her head off of my shoulder and looked at me.

"I'm trying to do what's best for us."

"You may think it's best for us right now, but when you open your eyes you'll see that it's gonna hurt just as bad when I leave whether we're dating or not."

"Then stay."

"That's not an option for me.Why can't you see that?"

"See this is exactly why we're taking a break.If you asked me to stay I wouldn't even have to consider it.I'd do anything you wanted me to."

"But that's the thing.I would want you to go.I would want you to live your dreams like I'm doing right now.I wouldn't be selfish and try to keep you for myself.I would want everyone to know how amazing you are.I wouldn't ask you to stay."

"What the hell happened to us Luke?We don't fight."

"You're telling me."I grumbled.This whole thing had in a pissy mood and I needed to get away from Tessa before I said something I don't mean."Look why don't we talk about this tomorrow when we've had a little more time to think about it?"
