16. What To Do?

Luke’s POV


I was walking back to the house from school. After about five minutes I could see the house. I picked up my pace a little to a power walk. I walked up the steps to the front door. I put my key in the lock and turned it to the right. I heard the sound of the door being unlocked. I then pulled out the key and opened the door. I walked into the house and closed the door behind me. I yelled up the stairs to Carter "KIT CAT! I'M HOME!!" She then came running out of the laundry room and jumped on me, giving me a big hug. “Someone finally got out of bed I see." I said causing her to giggle a little. "Yeah well I thought it would be nice to eat." she said getting off of me. "I'm sure that's the only reason." I said while rolling my eyes in a joking matter. She just stuck her tongue out at me. We then started making our way to the kitchen when my phone started ringing. I pulled my phone out of my pocket and saw it was a unknown caller. I slid my finger across the green bar on my iPhone and put it to my ear. “Hello?” I said to the person. “Hi Luke, it’s Harry Styles.” I heard the British boy say. I put my hand over my phone and told Carter, “Hey I'll be right back. I gotta take this." walking out of the room and out the front door.


I put the phone back up to my ear then said,


“Hey Harry, how did you get my phone number?” 


“Oh your dad gave it to me.” Of course dad gave him my phone number. 


“Okay, so whats up?” 


“Is Carter with you?” he sounded a little worried.


“Yeah she’s with me. Why?” I asked.


“Well she is meant to be on tour with me and the lads, but she left on a plane without me knowing.” I put my hand on my face.


“Yeah sounds like her. She had done that before… don’t know why.” I said in a quiet voice. There is only one reason why she would just get up and leave.


“Does dad know?” I continued.


“No, he doesn’t.” He said.


“Okay, Are you in L.A.?”




“Alright, I'll send you the address then we will work on a time for you to come over.”


“Sounds good. Thank you Luke.”


“No problem. Bye.”




I hit the red bar on my screen, ending the call. I slid my phone back in my pocket and just stood there for a minute.


I walked back into the kitchen to see Carter eating a turkey sandwich. “Oh. My. Gosh. You didn’t burn down the HOUSE!” I said. “Oh put a cork in it!” she said trying not to laugh but failing a little.  I walked over to the fridge and pulled out everything that I needed make myself a sandwich.


“Okay, I have to head back to school! I’ll be back later!” I yelled to Carter who was upstairs getting changed out of her wet pajamas. “OKAY! BYEEE!” I heard her yell back. I picked up my backpack that I had dropped at the front door when I entered the house earlier. I walked out the door, closing it behind me on my way out. I made my way back to school that was about a 10 minute walk. I wasn’t in any rush since I don’t have a class this period. While I was walking I pulled out my phone and texted Harry the address of the house. Within a minute he had texted me back asking what time he could come over. I thought about it for a minute. Mom isn’t going to be home because she has a meeting and won’t be back till late. I then texted him back that he could come over tonight. He just replied with a “Ok see you later.” I put my phone back in my pocket. When I looked up I could see my school not to faraway.


Carter’s POV


I was upstairs getting changed out of my now soaking pjs. Luke had thrown me into the pool after we ate, so that is why my pjs are wet. I pulled out a Nike t-shirt and some Nike shorts. “Okay, I have to head back to school! I’ll be back later!” I heard him yell. “OKAY! BYEEE!” I yelled back at him. I then heard some shuffling downstairs then heard the door open and close. I walked down the stairs and into the living room. “what to do?” I said out loud even though I was the only one home. I walked over to the window and saw a few people out walking. I then walked to the kitchen and looked out the window to see the backyard. After a minute or two, I decided that I would work on my soccer skills since it was nice out. I ran back upstair going to Luke’s room. Once I opened the door I started looking for a soccer ball. I looked under the bed first. I found a few pair of dirty boxers but that was it. I cringed and then walked over to the little walk-in closet he has. After digging around for a couple minutes, I finally found one. ‘I knew he had one in here.’ I thought to myself. I ran down the stairs and to the kitchen. I grabbed a water bottle from the fridge and walked out the back door that lead  to the backyard.


I was still in the backyard messing around with the soccer ball when I heard someone walk out. “You know playing by yourself can be hard.” Said a British accent. I dropped the ball to the floor from bouncing it on my knees, then I darted my head to the door leading to the kitchen to see Harry standing there. How did he find me?!
