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."


23. chapter 23

Luke’s POV

"What is it?" I stare at Emily, unsure of what she might say to me this time. I’m having a really hard time trusting anyone lately, obviously including Emily.  I wanna trust her, I really do but my heart feels fractured and I can’t take anymore lies.

"I think–" Emily cuts herself off whilst shaking her head. "I'm just going to say it. No regrets. Luke Hemmings, I'm in love with you."

It’s like she sucked all the air out of my lungs. I legitimately start choking. Emily rushes to my side and suddenly wacks me on my back.

I look at her in confusion. “What was that for?” I ask, rubbing my neck and back.

“You were choking. That’s how you're supposed to help someone.” She explains. It’s like we’ve completely forgotten what made me choke in the first place. I’m not sure what I’m going to say to Emily in return. How bout I reply back with ‘thanks…’ how awkward.

“Emily, I don’t love you.” I nervously scratch the back of my neck. Her eyes widened and her cheeks turn a bright pink. I’ve always loved- I mean liked that about her.

“But Calum told me-“

“Calum thought wrong. I’m sorry but I only really liked you.” I drop my hand to my side and watch as she lets a sigh out.

“Well, I guess I’ll see you later.” She nods and walks off in the direction of her house. Once she’s out of view I close the door and slide down against it.

What have I just done?

Emily’s POV

How stupid can I be? This thought runs through my head as I sprint home with tears streaming down my rosy red cheeks. Why didn’t I just except the fact that Luke and I are over? That he hates my guts and would never ever love me like I love him. What was I thinking? Gosh, I’m such an idiot. A fool in love.

When I finally get to my house, I notice Calum’s and my mums cars parked in the driveway. I grab the extra key under the mat and unlock the door. As soon as my foot steps into the house, I’m engulfed in hugs. I can’t see who, but I know it’s either my mum or Cal.

“Where the hell where you Emily?” Calum holds me at arm’s length and glares at me. “We’ve been worried sick.”

I try not to roll my eyes. I know Calum just being protective of me. I know he cares, but sometimes it gets a little bit too much.

“Cal, I’m fine. I was at Luke’s.”

He raises a brow. “You were?”

“Yes. Can I be alone?”

I don’t give him a chance to respond before I pull myself away and start heading up the steps. I’m not in the talking mood at the moment so I hope he’ll understand.

Once I’m in my room, I collapse on my bed with a thud. It’s like my whole world turned upside down. I didn’t think being rejected could hurt so badly. I wish this was a dream. I’m not fine at all.
