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."

Calum's POV

"Emily, please open up. The gigs in half an hour." I've been pleading Emily to come out of her room but she won't listen to a thing I say. She's locked herself in her room since today after school and she won't even talk to me.

Suddenly the door flew open and out stepped Emily but she wasn't dressed. She was wearing her pjs and her hair was a mess.

"Why aren't you ready?" I freaked out. I pushed past her and started throwing clothes her way.

"I'm not coming." Her voice was low but I could still hear her.

"What? Why not? Are you sick?" I asked.

She shook her head. "I just don't want to go."

I pulled her back into the room and sat her on her bed.

"What's wrong?" I crossed my arms over my chest and waited patiently for her to explain.

"Calum, it's nothing. Just go to your gig. Have fun. I'll be fine at home."

I stared for a second trying to figure out what was wrong but it was like she was made out of stone.

"Emily, I can't go to that gig without you. I need you there. It won't be the same without you and I'm not leaving until you come with me."

"Calum don't make this any harder. I just don't feel up for it."

 

"Don't you want to support my dream. This is my dream you know."

"Of course I do—"

I grabbed her hands and pulled her up. "Then come with me. I want to see you there singing along please. I need you Emily."

"Fine."

I jumped for joy and gave my sister a tight hug. "Thanks Em. You won't regret this."

Emily's POV

I took a seat at the bar stools and watched carefully as the boys set up to perform. I still can't believe Calum dragged me here. I wasn't ready to see Luke again especially not now.

I order a diet coke and turned back to see a couple girls in short tight dresses talking to Luke and Calum. One of the girls with blond extensions whispered something into Luke's ear which made him laugh. I rolled my eyes and continued to watch.

9:45pm rolled around and the boys were about to perform. I decided to stay were I was sitting and not get up.

"Thanks for having us. This is our first gig so we hope you like what you hear. We're 5 Seconds of Summer." Calum spoke into the microphone. I clapped and whistled.

They started to play there first song which was called Too Late. It was really good and it got the crowd wanting more.

"Do you guys wanna here a cover?" Ashton asked. The crowd cheered and Ashton said the cover they were gonna play was I Miss You by Blink 182.

"Alright this is the last song, here's an acoustic version of Gotta Get Out." Michael said as he picked up a guitar.

Even when the sky is falling down

Even when the earth is crumbling 'round my feet

Even when we try to say goodbye

And you can cut the tension with a knife in here

Cause I know what'll happen

If we get through this

And if the earth ends up crumbling down to its knees baby

We just gotta get out

We just gotta get out

And if the skyscrapers tumble down and crash around baby

We just gotta get out

We just gotta get out

'Cause I feel so damn lost

And it comes with a cost of being alone

Everything is falling down

We're suffering, helpless thoughts and

Out we sing, prayers go to the sky

And if the earth ends up crumbling down to its knees baby

We just gotta get out

We just gotta get out

Gotta get, gotta get, gotta get out

And if the skyscrapers tumble down and crash around baby

We just gotta get out

We just gotta get out

And if we fall

It's not your fault

Shadows covering

Our selfish foes

And as our love,

Can go out on a high note

Even when the sky is falling down

Even when the earth is crumbling 'round my feet

Around my feet

And if the earth ends up crumbling down to its knees baby

We just gotta get out

We just gotta get out

Gotta get, gotta get, gotta get out

And if the skyscrapers tumble down and crash around baby

We just gotta get out

We just gotta get out

We just gotta get out

We just gotta get out

We just gotta get out

We just gotta get out

We just gotta get out

The crowd went wild and started to clap. I grinned and when Calum and I made eye contact I gave him a thumbs up.

"So what'd you think?" Calum freaked as he gave me a hug.

"You were amazing out there Calum. I'm so proud of you." I gave him another hug and ruffled his hair. Ashton, Michael, and Luke walked over to us.

"Great job guys." I gave Michael and Ashton a hug and when I finally stood in front of Luke it just felt awkward.

"Are you not gonna give him a hug Em?" Calum raised a brow and I let a sigh out before wrapping my arms around him.

"Could we talk?" Luke's voice spoke closely to my ear.

I pulled away just enough to see his face and mouthed 'okay.'

"I guess we should pack up." Michael spoke to the others. I still had my arms around Luke so I nervously pulled away.

"Don't act like that." He mumbled as he pushed my hair off my forehead. I furrowed my eyebrows."Act like what?"

"So darn cute." A smile broke across his beautiful face making chills run down my spine. 

I don't even know what to feel when I'm around him anymore. He just makes me nervous then mad then happy then pissed then nervous all over again. He shouldn't have this kind of affect on me. I shouldn't let him.

"I'm not acting Luke." I gently pushed his hand away from my face but he grabbed it instead. 

"I know." His voice was so soft yet so hard.

"Hurry up guys." Ashton called from the doors. We immediately pulled away and I grabbed my things before scurrying out of the bar.

"So..."

I looked up from my book to see Calum leaning against my doorway. 

"So?" I put the book down and patted a spot for him on my bed.

"Can you tell me about your dancing?" He asked as he crawled onto the bed and rested his head in my lap. He used to do this all the time with mum but when our parents started to fight he'd ask me if he could rest his head in my lap and play with his hair. It always calmed him down.

"Well, what do you want to know?" Calum's hair lay against his forehead and I pushed it off to see his eyes more clearly.

"When you started."

I told him when I first started dancing when our mum gave me a present. It was when I was 7 years old.

"Wait," Calum sat up, surprised. "You've been dancing since then?" 

"Well kind of. She gave me my first pair of ballet slippers but I never used them because I thought that I'd wreck them. Remember when I was packing my stuff to go to America with dad and you were helping me but you accidentally split water on my shoes. Those were actually my ballet slippers. I remember I got so mad at you and told you that I was happy I was leaving." I looked down at my hands feeling tears forming at the corners of my eyes.

"Emily we made up remember? You weren't mad at me before you left." Calum said.

"I know," I sniffed. "I just shouldn't have gotten so angry."

"Those ballet slippers obviously meant something too you just like my bass means something to me so you had every right getting mad." Calum gave me a tight hug and I rested my head on his shoulder.

"So...what's going on between you and Luke? You guys seemed pretty close last night at the gig." Calum laughed as he poked my cheek. I could feel my face flush.

"Nothing were just friends." I told him.

He rolled his eyes."Right and I'm dating Jennifer Lawrence. You don't have to be embarrassed. I'm cool with you dating Luke."

My eyes widened. "Really?"

Calum pointed a finger at me. "So you do like Luke" He jumped off the bed and raced out of the room before saying 'I'm telling Luke.'

"Calum don't." I ran after him but he wasn't quick enough. I jumped onto his back and we both landed on the floor in the living room.

I looked up to see Ashton, Michael and Luke in the living room staring back at me.

"Hi." I awkwardly waved while still sitting on Calum.

"Emily get off." Calum whined. I rolled my eyes and got off him after messing his hair.

"Guess what Emily told me." Calum teased.

"Caluuuum." I grabbed his arm and pulled him back.

"What'd she say?" Michael asked.

"She told me that she liked Lu-" I grabbed him by the shoulder and placed my hand over his mouth.

"Calum what the fuck?" I growled.

"Wow." Luke laughed. "Who taught you that word Emily?"

I rolled my eyes and stared back at Calum. "Fine, how bout I tell them how you used to play with my barbies when I wasn't around and I caught you even making Barbie snog Ken?" I spoke loudly enough so everyone heard. The boys burst out laughing and Calum's face became bright red.

"Are you serious? Calum playing with dolls?" Luke asked as he wiped at his eyes. I nodded my head.

"You're gonna get it sis." Calum narrowed his eyes before he tried to grab at me but I was quick enough and ran behind Luke.

"Oh my god, he's gonna kill me." I laughed. I hid behind Luke and rested my hands on his shoulders. I could feel them tense up underneath my finger tips making the hairs on the back of my neck stand up.

I leaned forward and whispered. "Relax."
