My Brothers Best-Friend ∞ l.h. [ON HOLD]

"Luke, you're a nice guy but nothing can happen between us. Calum's your best friend and he's also my brother. It would just make things awkward for everyone." Maybe Emily Hood was jumping to conclusions without even knowing what Luke was getting at, but she could tell he liked her. She might even like him too. "So you like me?" Luke said with a smirk. She rolled my eyes and shook her head. "That's not what I said."

Emily's POV

"He's never going to come around." I say whilst shoving my book into my locker. I try to close the door but everything within falls to the floor creating a huge mess.

I drop to my knees and start cleaning the mess. I'm on the verge of a nervous break down. I haven't slept all night because my mind is worry about Luke. I want to believe that he's just mad at me. That he's over me but I can feel that he's not only just mad. He's really hurt. I don't want to know if he's in pain. I cannot deal with the guilt.

As I'm desperately scrambling to clean my books, the front door opens and in walks Luke. He doesn't look upset at all. He looks happy. When people come up and say hi he smiles and says hi back. There's no trace of him being mad.

When our eyes meet, everything changes. He goes from happy to pissed in a second.

I finish picking my books up and manage to put the mess in my locker before running after him.

"Luke wait up!" I call. He turns around and glares at me but I shrug it off.

"Luke, can we talk. Please." I say out of breath. Luke rolls his eyes and continues to walk. I keep up with him but he has pretty long legs so I have speed walk.

"Would you just give me a minute to speak. I'm desperate."

"Me too. There's something I need to tell you too. Meet me after school in the auditorium." Luke smiles.

"What really?" I ask. He nods. "Don't forget."

He walks away and I can't help but feel all happy. He's finally giving me a chance to tell him how I feel. I can't wait. Everything's falling slowly into place.

***

It's after school and I'm starting to freak out. I've been worrying all day about it. What I'll have to say needs to genuine. He needs to know how sorry I feel.

I walk onto the dark stage of the auditorium. "Luke?" I call out. The spot light flash on me and I notice a chair with my name on it.

"Emily I'm right here." Luke stands in front of me. He's holding his guitar and then I notice the rest of the boys with there instruments.

"What's going on? I thought we were going to talk?"

He smiles and walks over to his microphone. "We are, but first I have something to say. Light!" The lights go onto the band and then I notice something else. The auditorium seats are full with people from my grade.

Luke puts on his head set and starts playing.

"Ooooh Ooooh

You're telling the same old story

And that I need to change

If you're not living my life for me

You make it feel that way

You know you know

We're loosing control

I gotta break way

And nothing's gonna change

You've got to go

It's the end of the road

No matter what you do or say

Baby you're not what I need

I'm over this

I'm over you

I'm not gonna waste my life away

This is my independence day

I'm moving on there's no excuse

And I can't take away your pain

This is my independence day

This is my independence day."

I stare in shock as I listen to what Luke is singing. This is what he wanted to talk to me about? To break up with me in public?

I get up from my seat and head to the door but Luke quickly blocks it. He starts walking forward forcing me to walk back.

The song continues but this time Calum starts to sing. I stare at him but he looks as confused as me.

"Suddenly my picture is looking perfect

Since you're not in the frame

And deep down I never meant to hurt you

But you're the one to blame

You know you know

We're losing control

Before it's too late I'm making my escape

Now that I'm gone you're on your own

No matter what you do or say

Baby you're not what I need

I'm over this

I'm over you

I'm not gonna waste my life away

This is my independence day

I'm moving on there's no excuse

And I can't take away your pain

This is my independence day

Wouldn't it be nice

If it's gonna walk down right through us

I know you fight for all we had

But it didn't feel right

Heart down our sleeves

We lost tonight

And there's no looking back."

Luke pushes me back into the chair and stares into my eyes. His eyes are glossed over but he quickly blinks before kneeling down.

"I'm over this

I'm over you

I'm not gonna waste my life away

This is my independence day

I'm moving on there's no excuse

And I can't take away your pain

This is my independence day

Wouldn't it be nice

If it wanna walk down right through us

There's no looking back

This is my independence day

This is my independence day."
