8. The Call

Rosie’s POV


I left the boys smiling, how I’ve missed them and their shenanigans. I could already tell Michael’s party was going to be absolutely mental and we’d probably end up drunk sitting in a circle reminiscing about our teenage years and what idiots we were.


I walked through the gate stopping to check the mailbox, finding a couple of bills, letters for Dalton, junk mail. I was flipping through the pile as I walked up to the front door when one envelope caught my eye.




For a second my heart stopped. I’d recognise that handwriting anywhere, it was Luke’s.


I hurried inside and threw my keys and the other mail on the bench. I walked to the living room tearing open the envelope as I went. I flopped down on the couch pulling the creased paper out of the envelope. My eyes scanned the letter and I giggled at his awkwardness. He hasn’t changed at all. I knew if I wrote him another letter he wouldn’t get it by the party.


I let out a sigh and reached for my phone. I can’t believe I was going to do this. I scrolled through my contacts until I found what I was looking for…




The adrenaline was coursing through my veins and before I could think anything through I pressed call. I put my phone on speaker as it rang. Once, twice, thre-




My breath hitched in my throat.


“Hey Hemmo,” I said smiling trying to keep my voice normal.


“Rosie,” he whispered.


“Yeah… It’s me. I got your letter.”


“You did?” he asked sounding dazed.


“Yep and I read it and this is my way of replying.”


“Wow. Uh hi.”


“You’re still so awkward,” I laughed.


“Old habits die hard I suppose.”




The sound of silence filled the space and I sat there staring at my phone hoping he would speak up so I wouldn’t have to.


“So… Mike’s party… What did you get him?”


“He picked out what he wanted,” I laughed. “I ran into him in the Pokémon aisle at Toys-R-Us.”


“Oh. Well I have no clue what to get him,” he said frustrated.


It made me smile to think of Luke when he got frustrated. He would clench his fists; make a derpy face before funning his fingers through his hair repeatedly.


“I could help if you want… You could come over and we could EBay random Pokémon stuff, like furniture or something. You don’t have to… it’s just a suggestion.”


“Really? You sure? I’m sure you’d have better things to do than help me.”


“Luke its fine, really. Come over in 10?”


“I’ll be there, see you soon,” I smiled at his voice. He was excited but I could hear the nervousness hidden behind it.



Luke’s POV


I was going to see Rosie. What have I done? I am I even ready to see her again? It’s too late to back out now. I grabbed my keys and wallet and Rosie’s address and made my way to my car.


I arrived at Rosie’s address and my palms began to sweat. My hands began to shake as I reached the door. I rang the doorbell and waited patiently until the girl I’ve been in love with for the past 15 years opened the door.


“Luke!” she exclaimed pulling me into a hug which I returned.


“Hey Rosie,” I smiled. “Long time no see huh?”


“I reckon. Come in,” she moved aside so I could enter.


“It’s a nice house you’ve got,” I stated looking around. I looked at all the photo frames lining the walls and shelves.


“Thanks,” she smiled watching me as I looked at the photos. There are ones of Michael, Calum, Ashton and one of me and Rosie on her 18th Birthday. I smiled at the memory and moved on to the next photo. It was on of Rosie with some guy and it looked recent.


“Hey who’s this?” I asked holding up the photo so she could see.


“Oh that’s Dalton,” she replied as if it was obvious.


“Cool… Who’s Dalton?”


“He’s my boyfriend. We’ve been dating for 4 years,” she replied and that’s when the world shattered around me. This was a mistake.


Cliffhanger... Oooops xD
