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."


28. chapter 28

Emily's POV

I stare at Luke in shock. This stupid game won't really make me kiss him, right? I shouldn't be forced into kissing him if I don't want to.

"Luke go kiss Emily." Spencer says dryly.

I take a gulp before looking at Calum. I give me a look and he sighs.

"She doesn't have to kiss him." Calum tells her. "It's not like you kissed Ashton anyways." He mumbles.

"Okay, I'll kiss Ashton if it's such a big deal." Spencer spits out. She walks across the room over to Ashton, sits on his lap and kisses him on the lips.

"Happy? Luke your turn."

My eyes locked on Luke. He's staring right back at me looking for something. Reassurance from me I guess. I don't think I can do it.

"Spencer, if she doesn't want to kiss Luke she doesn't have to." Calum looks mad. He's carefully watching Spencer and Ashton. Maybe he does like Spencer and now she's all over Ashton.

"I can't do this!" I quickly get up and run out of the living room. It felt like the room was getting hotter and hotter by the second.

I took a seat on the stairs and rest my head against the wall. Voices from the other room were loud in a heated argument. Calum must be mad.

"You can't force her to do that Spencer! It's not right and you know it." Calum booms.

"It's just a game. What's the big deal if they kissed?"

"You really don't understand Spenc. Just lay off my sister."

I'm happy Calum's protecting me but he's putting all his frustrations on Spencer. It's not right and she doesn't deserve it. She doesn't even know about Luke and I.

"You're still mad aren't you." She says.


"The shopping cart crash. You wouldn't be this mean if that never happened. It was an accident..."

I managed to block out the rest of their conversation. If Calum did like Spencer enough, I don't wanna be the one to get in the middle of their relationship.

I put my head in my hands. Everything is going terribly. I feel bad for rejecting Luke everyday but I'm doing it for him. He doesn't need me, right? He'll be all around the world with his best mates touring and doing what he loves. I shouldn't be the one that makes him want to come back home. I won't even be in Australia anymore.

Someone clears their throat making me look up. It's Luke.




He looks at me with sadness in his eyes. Sadness that I caused. He takes a seat beside me in the small staircase. Our bodies are close but I don't mind. It feels nice to be close to him again. Even for a little while.

"Can we talk?" He says slowly. I guess this is the perfect time to tell him everything.

"Yeah. We should talk."

Luke raises a brow in confusion. "Really?" I nod. "There's some things I need to say."

We start talking. Luke tells me how he feels again, and it hasn't changed. He still cares about me, but he's hurt. He doesn't know what went wrong and that's when I come in.

"I don't get it. I thought you wanted to get back together? Wasn't that the reason why you told me you loved me that day after the party?"

"I said things changed between us when I told you that and when you wanted me back."

He plays with his fingers and ask, "Like what?"

"Well, you're going in tour. Wouldn't you rather be single and not be tied down while having the time of your life? You're going to be surrounded by girls that'll love you and do anything to get to you. I can't stop that."

Luke bits his lip. "I guess your right," he starts. I was hoping that he'd beg for me back. That all my assumptions about the tour were false and maybe we could try a long distance relationship. "but that doesn't change the way I feel."

My head snaps up to him. "What?"

"Going on tour won't change how I feel about you Emi. I'll always be thinking about you. I can't push my feelings away."

"But Calum told me you'd be sad if we stay together. Isn't it better if we weren't dating?" I tell him.

"I'd still be sad on tour if we weren't together."

So he wants to work this out. Now I guess I should tell him about New York.

"There's something else I need to say. I'm not going to be here in Sydney anymore. That's also why I didn't want us back together."

"Where are you going?" He asks nervously.

"Back to New York. I'll be going to that dance school. I found out before you told me you loved me. If you told me before hand I would've said it back and we'd be back together. But I'll be there and you'll be everywhere. How can we be together?"

Luke sighs. "I'm leaving in two weeks. Just give me those two weeks and I'll show you that us being together is right. We can make long distance work. I can't leave here knowing that I didn't try."

Two weeks? Two weeks for us to get back to where we were and fix all our mistakes. Luke looks at me with hopeful eyes and I know I can't reject him anymore. I can't keep pushing feelings away too. He's perfect. He makes me happy. I know we've had our ups and downs, but every couple has them. I know he's right for me.

"Two weeks?" I ask.

He nods. "Two weeks. Will you say yes?"

I grin and shake my head. "Of course."

Luke pulls me into his chest and I can't help but smile. This feels right.
