Silenced Heart

Luke Hemmings loves the fame. The sound of the girls screaming his name and the flashing lights. His band members see this, so they make a bet. If he can last without the fame, he'll be paid. Luke goes back to school, and he meets a girl who flips his entire world upside down. When the bets over, he has one of the biggest decisions he'll ever have to make: leave her or hold on for as long as he can.

5. Chapter 5

-Luke-

This school was sick. It wasn't as nice as it said on the website! The halls were graffitied, it smelled like dead cats and cigarette smoke, and the people were just....unexplainable. They sneered at every person that walked by, the things they did to their uniform, and how they walked made it very uncomfortable to walk down the halls. My last high school was not like this.

I walked into my first period, History, obviously a little late. The teacher greeted me and told me to take a seat in the front, which I complied to.

The whole day was weird and awkward. I didn't meet anyone (that I liked,) and I could feel eyes on me everywhere I went.

The "disguise" the lads set up for me was horrible. My hair was greased back like Harry's was for his Marcel part, and I was forced to wear reading glasses to hide my eyes. I felt like one of the Disney superheroes who had to hide their identity by just a mask. Like that helps?!

The uniform was atrocious as well. The pants were itchy, the polo was hideous, and the shoes had my feet on fire.

I found my locker at the end of the day. There was a girl standing there, but I didn't look at her. She seemed boring from the back. She walked away quickly anyway.

I returned to my "home." It was a shabby old apartment on the Boulevard they call it. It was a noisy road with many angry drivers. My driver, Ross, wasn't enjoying it either.

"Luke, why'd you choose to stay here?" he interrogated with a whine noticeable in his masculine voice. I shrugged with a "dunno."

The apartment building had a murky sea water and cat litter smell. The walls were cement making the building colder than it needed to be. I talked to the lady at the front desk who hada groggy voice with the cigarette in here hand.

She gave me the key to my apartment and sent me off. The rooms were way nicer than they seemed. They smelled like lavender and vanilla, and they were nicely decorated. The cream carpets were soft under my toes. The ivory walls made the room bright, and the painting hung on the walls gave the room a burst of color.

The kitchen was awesome except there was no food.

I asked Ross to make a trip to the supermarket for me. He was kind enough to do so.

I decided to give Calum a ring.

Four rings and his cheery voice was heard.

"Hey mate!" he boomed. I chuckled.

"Cal." I paused for a moment. "What time is our show tomorrow?" There was a short silence before he returned.

"It's at six. You need to be at the hotel by four." I nodded my head, going over my scheduler for the day. "So, how do you like your school?" I groaned.

"It's horrible! The website lied so bad!" He chuckled.

"Well, we owe you sixty for today. We will just get you a tab and when you're done, we'll give it to you all at once." I smiled to myself. I'm going to be rich!

"Ok. That sounds good."

We talked for a little, but then Ross came back with my groceries.

"That....store....is....crazy." He stated through long breaths. He had six bags in his hands and four in his arms.

"Whoa, mate! Let me help!" We placed all of the bags on the kitchen table and Ross went to his room nextdoor to me. I spent the next hour organizing my food into the fridge and cupboards.

Hey. If any of you reading live in Philly, I'm not trashing the city. Trust me. I've been there, and I love it. The rest is just for the sake of the book, so bear with me.

Thanks for reading!
