22. chapter twenty-two

"Luke, you have a girlfrend..." I hinted, curious as if he was on something. 

"Yeah you silly!" He slung his arm over my shoulder loosely, walking down the footpath beside me.

"Um, what about Natalia?" I quizzed, trying to wriggle out of my grip. 

"Who?" A curious look was plastered on his face. I didn't say anything. I just stared, blinking occasionally. "Oh Natalia! Yeah, she moved to America to be a model at the end of the last year. Around the time you left actually!" He remembered, smiling warmly, making my heart melt like it used to. 


Does that mean Jenny was lying to me? 


We walked side by side to a small cafe shop round the corner where I had ordered my usual caramel latte, and he ordered a cappuccino, just like harry had ordered on our first date. We walked round and sat in a small booth in the corner of the store, sort of separate from everyone else. 


Luke shuffled closer to me and traced his hand on my cheek, melting my heart. Suddenly all the feelings I had for him before came flooding back, making me question which one I had feelings for. 


"Luke..." I hesitated.

"yeah babe?" he mumbled, gazing into my eyes.

"I uh.." "Katie?" I heard my name being called. 

"Harry?" I smiled, jumping up and hugging him tight. I fast moved away as I realised that probably I shouldn't have done that. 

"Who's this?" Harry whispered in my ear, wrapping his arm round my waist, pulling me closer to him. 

"Harry, meet Luke. Luke, this is Harry." I nervously introduced them.


Harry's grip tightened around my waist and he froze for a second, I think he remembered who Luke was. 


"Hey hey woah man get your grubby hands off my girlfriend." Luke protested, standing up and walking towards us. 

"Your girlfriend?" Harry huffed. 

"yeah, tell him Katie." Luke grinned, linking his arm with mine, yanking me out of Harry's grip. 

"I-uh" I stuttered like an idiot, and Luke gave me a hurtful look towards me. 

'There's been a big miss-understanding." I began explaining. 

"I have all day." Anger filled throughout Luke's voice. 

"Well, after I left, you tried nothing to try and contact me. And I know Harry and I have had our ups and downs, and I mean I haven't seen you in over 2 months, so its hard to pick. And I'm only here for another week, and then I'm back in London. I'll be back with Harry..." I mumbled, looking from Luke, to Harry, then back to Luke. 

"Do you love him?" Luke sternly spoke, taking me by surprise by his sudden change in voice. He squinted his eyes at me and Harry before rolling his eyes.

"Well, ye- yeah I do." I glanced back at Harry who had the biggest grin on his face. He held his hand out for me to grab, and I entwined mine with his. 

"I love you too Katie." He announced, leaning down and kissing my lips. 

"So your just throwing away everything we went through?!" Luke furiously threw his hands in the air, catching the attention of the customers scattered around the tables and chairs neatly placed around the shop. 

"No I- I will miss you Luke. But you know, you hurt me by not calling-" "You could have called me if you bloody missed me so much!" He paces back and forth slightly, trying to comprehend everything that was happening. 

"I lost my phone. I only got a new one like 2 weeks ago." I defended myself, all the while Harry stood there quiet, not wanting to create an even bigger scene than what was unfolding right now. 

"Huh, of course you did." Luke rolled his eyes, clearly not believing me. 

"Hey mate, she did alright. Can you just drop it?" Harry grabs his arm, moving him away from me before he came any closer. 

"Listen here 'mate'. Don't you dare touch me. You stole my girlfriend alright, how am I supposed to calm down. She was my everything. And now you've taken her." He blurbs out, shaking his arm, which released Harry's grip from his sleeve. Luke stumbled backwards. 

"You didn't treat her like your everything." Harry furiously states, causing Luke's eyes to become wide eyed. 

"Oh yeah?" Luke teases, stepping closer to Harry, clenching his fists shut. 

"yeah." Harry stands up straight, and I only just noticed the massive height difference between the two boys. Harry was at least 2 inches taller. 

"Say it one more time." Luke threatened, getting ready to punch Harry, I could tell.


I couldn't take any of this anymore. 


"Stop it. please." I pleaded, standing in between the two furious boys. "Stop causing such a scene." I explained, grabbing both the boys sleeves of their shirts before dragging them outside. I threw them out, turned around at the door and apologised to everyone who had to witness it, before shutting the door behind me. Both boys picked themselves up off the floor and death glared each other, before laying their eyes on me. 


"I cant deal with this right now." I sighed, running my ringers through my hair. I let my arms flop down to my sides before looking at both boys. 


"I'm going for a walk. Luke, meet me at the Sydney Opera House in an hour, Harry I will see you at the hotel." I mumbled, glancing down at my watch.  

"Katie are you su-" "Yes Harry I'm sure. I need to sort this shit out." I said, and he sighed, but nodded in agreement. 


I mumbled a short goodbye before walking off, away from the two boys I was so crazy for.
