I watched as Ashton and Michael dragged an annoyed Calum out of the living room down to his basement to practice before he could potentially kill his sister. I turned to Emily to see she had a smile on her face.
"What's with the smile?" I asked curiously.
She shrugged. "Wanna go on a walk?" She was still smiling as she got up from the couch. I nodded my head before grabbing my jumper.
"Emily, can we talk?" I just closed the front door and was walking silently behind her. She turned her head to me and gave me a nod.
"So what do you want to talk about?" I watched as Emily fiddled with her fingers and kick a rock every few steps.
Just looking at her made me nervous. I don't know why, but she has this unusual effect on me. She wasn't even doing something that amazed me. She was just being herself, and I liked that a lot.
"Emily," I spoke whilst grabbing her hands and stopping her from walking any further, "I know I might have scared you and come off strong, but I-I really like you. You're different from any other girl I've met before and I've never been rejected either. I really like you and I'm not just saying that because you're my best-friends sister. I don't even care if you're Calum's sister."
She furrowed her eyebrows. "Then what? Do you think that makes a difference?"
I shook my head, "No but-"
"But nothing Luke," Emily spoke as she cut me off. "I'm just not ready, can't you accept that? I like you too but I don't need a boy in my life right now."
It felt like my heart shattered in a million pieces. She didn't want me at all and I suddenly realized that I'd have to fight for her trust.
"Luke I know it hurt but I just can't. Just stop trying because I'm not gonna fall for you."
Emily pushed past me and ran into her house leaving me heartbroken and wondering if Emily would ever want me as much as I wanted her.
I must be crazy. I must be out of my mind. Why? Because I rejected Luke again. I pushed him away when he was only trying to make me feel special. He wants to be there for me but I having this feeling that I just can't be with him in that way. He can't be my boyfriend even though I want him to so bad. I'm trying to act like it doesn't phase me, but it does. I have this wall that protects me from guys that I'm just not ready to let Luke in.
I crawled onto my bed and pushed my earphones in and pressed play. Don't Wake Me Up by Chris Brown started to play and I quietly started to sing.
I could feel the bed sink in beside me and my right earphone being pulled out of my ear. I didn't even bother to look because I knew it was Calum.
"Are you alright?" He voice was low, almost a whisper. I nodded my head but inside I knew I was just lying to myself.
"I know you're lying." Calum mumbled.
I turned to look at him to see he was staring up at the ceiling. He started to sing along with the song.
So much life in the city, you won't believe.
Been awake for some days now, no time to sleep.
"How can you tell?" I turned to my side and stared into his brown eyes that were identical to mine.
"Because you're just like me. When your sad or frustrated you listen to Chris Brown. I've known you long enough Emily too know these little things."
I let out a long sigh and tugged the earphone out.
"I guess you caught me."
"So spill. What's the problem?" Calum sat up on his elbows after pulling his earphone out.
"I don't know. It's embarrassing Calum." I let my head fall onto my pillow so Calum couldn't see that I was blushing.
"I'm your brother. You can tell me anything." He urged. I rolled my eyes but noticed that Calum was actually being serious.
"Em, come on, I won't judge you."
"I know that, but feel like it's really silly. I'm not even sure how I'm feeling about all of it."
"What ever it is, if it has to do with Luke, you can still tell me."
I stared at him with a blank expression. "How did you know it was about him?"
"Because when he left here he looked really sad and wouldn't say a word to me or the other guys. Plus you were the only one with him."
"Fine. I'll tell you. But when you see Luke tomorrow act like you don't know anything please. I don't want it to be awkward between you guys."
So I told Calum everything. How Luke likes me, and how I like him too, How we kissed, sorta. How he showed me that cave and Calum's note. How we fought and then made up then fought again.
I was looking down throughout my whole explanation because I was too scared of Calum's reaction. I was scared that he'd hate me for having anything to do with his best-friend.
"Emily, why don't you want to date Luke?" Was the first thing he asked.
I was shocked that he wasn't acting mad at all. "I have trust issues Calum. I'm not ready for another boyfriend right now."
"Another boyfriend?" Calum raised a brow.
I could feel my mouth going dry just thinking about him. My last boyfriend. He was the love of my life. I'd literally do anything for that guy.
"Let's just say that he really messed me up."
I walked alongside Emily through the school the next day. After she told me about her last boyfriend I felt like I needed to beat that kids ass. But Emily told me there was no point. He lived in New York and she would never see him again.
I looked up and saw Luke at his locker placing some of his books away. I noticed Emily had stopped walking and was about to turn the other way.
"Emily," I called before grabbing her arm. "You can't hide from him forever. Plus you need to get your English book."
Emily rolled her eyes before snatching her arm away. "Fine. But you better act normal Calum. I'm warning you. I don't want your friendship ruined because of me."
I honestly didn't mind if Luke and Emily went out. He was my best-friend and I trusted him.
"Hey Luke." I called as we finally approached the lockers. Emily didn't look towards him at all which made a frown appear on his face.
"Hey man. What's up?" His voice was mellow and nothing like the usual Luke. Ashton and Michael walked over to us and we started talking about our next band practice.
"So tomorrow at your place?" Michael confirmed. I nodded my head.
"Yep sounds good. We can upload another cover or something."
We all headed to English class and took our seats.
"Good morning everyone. Can everyone partner up with the partners I'd previously assigned you with. I'd like you to work on this worksheet."
She started handing out the papers as people were getting up to there partners. I was about to walk over to my partner when I felt someone tug on my sleeve. I turned to see Emily. She looked nervous and worried.
"Calum, I can't be partners with Luke." She whispered.
I shrugged my shoulders. "Suck it up sis."
I hate him. I can't believe he just told me to 'suck it up.' This is gonna be horrible.
Luke was sitting behind me so I turned around in my chair.
"Hi." He looked up from his phone and let out a sigh.
"I guess we should start." He mumbled.
I nodded my head as we started. We worked quickly which was good because all I wanted to do was get out of this classroom. It felt like the room was getting smaller and smaller and Luke and I weren't just a desk apart.
"I think that's it.' Luke said.
I looked down at the worksheet and nodded.
"I'll hand it in."
I quickly swiped the sheet from Luke's hands and walked over to Ms. Parker.
"Already done?" She raised a brow and I nodded my head.
"Wow, you two are a great team. Would you mind if you guys went and photocopied some sheets for me since your done?" Ms. Parker asked politely. I felt my stomach drop. Do more things with Luke? Could this day get any worse.
I said okay and grabbed the paper she wanted us to photocopy. I would've went myself but I honestly don't know were anything is in this school yet.
I walked back to Luke and noticed he was staring at me.
"Hey we need to go photocopy this for Ms. Parker." I explained.
Luke simply nodded his head, got up from his seat and walked by me without saying a word.
Once we outside of the classroom and out of sight, I caught up to him and pulled him back.
"Luke wait up." I spoke out of breath.
Luke glared at me then looked down at my hand around his wrist. I pulled it away and stared at him.
"Come on. We need to get the copies." He said. He was about to turn around but I stopped him again.
"Emily stop. You made yourself clear to me numerous times. What do want from me now? To hurt me even more?"
"Luke it's not even like that. I talked to Calum-"
He cut me off. "You told Calum about us? There wasn't even an us. Why would you do that?"
"Because I needed some advice. He knows you better then I do."
"That doesn't matter. Now Calum hates me-"
I couldn't take it anymore. I grabbed onto Lukes jumper and placed my lips onto his as he spoke. I hated how he thought that Calum suddenly hated him. That could never be true. Now he thinks that because of me.
Luke's lips were frozen against mine for the first few seconds until I finally felt his moving against mine. His lips were soft and I could feel his lip piercing tickling my lower lip.
Kissing Luke felt amazing. I never wanted the kiss to end. But it did.
Luke pulled away and he glared at with his eyes now a dark blue color.
"I can't believe you Emily. What the fuck was that?" He whisper-screamed.
"I'm sorry. I just couldn't let you think that Calum hated you. You were talking nonsense. Calum doesn't care about us if we were together. He trusts you Luke."
Luke rolled his eyes. "But you don't."
"I know, but that's not your fault. I have a hard time with opening up to new people. Even if you weren't my brothers best-friend, I wouldn't be able to trust you Luke. It's not you, I just have trust issues."
"Then why'd you kiss me?"
"Because I'm starting to realize that I need to trust you. That your too perfect too throw away."
