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."


36. chapter 36

*2 days later*

Emily's POV

I rolled onto my side, my eyes catching the fluffy kitten. I reached forward scratching behind her ear as she softly purred.

"Oh Mina, what will I do?" I asked. She purred back in response and I sighed. Nothing was going right. I was feeling extremely alone since Luke went m.i.a on me. I haven't spoken or seen him for 3 days and he'll be leaving in 4.

"I wish he could just talk to me."

The was no use though. This tour is taking him away from me and I could never stop him from leaving. Just like Luke, I have a dream to become a dancer professionally.

As Mina became comfortable on my bed I climbed off and walked over to the balcony door. The moon was full tonight making it's light stream into my room. I was distracted my staring at the moon that I got startled when a small pebble was thrown against the door.

I looked down and saw a figure. He waved his arms at me to opened the door so I did. I walked to the railing and my heart fell when I saw who it was.


I was more that shocked to see him there on my lawn. He smiled sweetly at me. Just looking at him made my heart race.

"What're you doing here? At 2:30am?" I asked, bewildered but a little happy.

"I wanted to see you." He called. I nodded and told him to wait a moment. I ran into my room grabbing a sweater before heading downstairs and through the back door.

When Luke saw me he grinned wide and pulled me into a tight hug.

"Hey Emily."

I pulled away and stared at Luke. "Were you gonna leave without saying goodbye?"

Luke raised a brow. "Of course not. Why would I do that?"

I rolled my eyes. He must be crazy if he hasn't noticed my many attempts to talk to him. He's acting like he hasn't been ignoring me for the past 3 days.

"Then why couldn't you return any of my calls, huh? I called you everyday. Texted, left you voice mails, Facebook messaged you. You didn't reply to a signal one. What makes you think that I want to see you now?" I snapped. I couldn't keep it in anymore. Luke stared at me in shock but softened up when he noticed how serious I was being.

"Do you even care about me Luke? Was I wrong? Should I be regretting letting you back in?"

I couldn't help the tears the pooled in my eyes. Luke let out a sigh before cupping my cheeks in his hands.

"Hey, hey. Don't cry. I don't mean to hurt you really. I-I just felt really overwhelmed over the last 3 days. Getting everything ready for tour and realizing that this could change my life forever. I freaked out okay? I started getting doubts about us in a long distance relationship. I'm not sure if I'll be good at it. I don't know if it'll make you happy. I'm just not sure. But I'm sure that I love you. I'm just a coward that hides from the most important people in his life."

I placed my hands over his and leaned into his touch. "You'll be gone in 4 days Luke. Do you know lonely I felt for the past 3? I don't know how we'll make it."

He pulled me into his arms and gave me a tight hug. "I'm sorry for making you feel like this."

"What're we gonna do then?" I mumbled against his chest. He looked down at me and smiled. "Let's take one day at a time? How does that sound?"

That's sounds good. Just don't think about the future.

But all I ever wanted was a future with Luke.

"I-It sounds good." I reply. Luke tilts his head as he stares at me. "You don't sound so sure, do you?"

I wanted to tell him the truth but all I could do was reassure him that it was fine. That we could do this. I pretended as I plastered a fake smile on my lips and tip-toed high enough so I could peck his lips.

"I love you, okay?" He pulled me into a tight hug. It felt so warm with my head against his chest. He really does make me feel better about everything, even though I'm not happy in the moment.

"I love you too Lukey." He chuckles at the name and raises a brow. "Lukey? Are you gonna start calling me that?"

I shrugged my shoulders. "It's fitting eh?"

He laughs hard. "Not at all! I'm supposed to be the lead singer in a punk band. I can't be known as "Lukey"." He flails his arms and does little air quotes at the name.

I roll my eyes. "Well you can be my adorable boyfriend named Lukey. You're gonna have to deal with it from now on. It'll only make me happy."

Luke sighs and agrees. After a while of talking I start to feel sleepy and Luke notices. "Hey are you tired?"

I yawn. "Ya, a little."

Luke nods, understanding. "Okay, well I'll see you tomorrow okay?"

He turns to leave but at the last moment you grab his wrist and pull him back.

"Would you mind staring tonight?" I asked innocently. Luke smirked. "Won't you get in trouble if we get caught?"

I shrug my shoulders. "I'll take the risk if it means being with you." And with that I pulled Luke into the warmth of my home bad up to my bedroom.

At first we both payed on my bed without touching. I turned my head to only see that Luke is staring back at me.


He smiles sweetly. "Nothing. You just look really beautiful tonight."

I laugh shyly. "T-thanks. How bout you come closer, hmm?"

Luke didn't protest as he slid beneath the covers and wrapped his arms around my waist.

"This is nice." He mumbled against my hair. You nod in response and cuddle deeper into his chest.

"Hey, tomorrow I want to wake up to your face alright? So don't try to sneak out before hand."

"I promise." He kisses my lips tenderly reassuring me that he won't leave. I can't help but smile a little into the kiss before pulling away.

I can see a slight frown on his lips. "You're such a tease Emi."

"Uh huh. Good night Lukey."

"Good night Emily."
