Forgetting Him

*READ DRESSING UP OR DRESSING DOWN FIRST* Second in the series. I'm not going to blurb about this. You want to know? Then read it!! :P


3. Chapter Three

Flashback: *“Scream and we will kill you.” A voice rumbled from behind me. “Now where is it?”*


I shook my head clueless as to what they were talking about. The boy who was in the study approached us. He was tall and had brownish hair. He had an accent too but I couldn’t quite pinpoint where he was from. I stared wide eyed at him as I was trying not to shake too badly.

“C’mon Michael, she’s shaking. Let her go.” He said with that accent.

“Aw man Ash. You’re no fun today!” the boy named Michael said releasing me.

“We didn’t get sent here to scare the living shit out of her!” Ash? Short for something, but what?

“Yeah yeah.” Michael said shrugging it off. I stood looking between the two strangers in my house like an idiot.

“See! You broke her!” he yelled. “Niall didn’t send us to break her!”

“Niall?” I spoke up confused. That’s when they looked at me.

“Oh thank god you still speak. Yeah, we’re close friends of Niall’s.” Michael said and slapped the other boys’ head. “I didn’t break her numskull!”

“Stop hitting me!” he yelled trying to catch Michaels’ hands. I giggled and saw Ash blush when he looked at me. That’s when I realised I was still in my underwear. I froze as my eyes widened. I felt my cheeks heat up with the blush I knew was there.

“I… uhm…” I stuttered. “I’m gonna go… change.” I ran off back to my room hearing one of them whistling softly. I blushed even more if that was possible and threw on my clothes at the end of the bed. I sat there a while, pondering whether or not to go back out there. I had to face them sooner or later right? I took a deep breath and walked to the stairs. I heard singing coming from the living room when I reached the bottom of the stairs.

“Don’t waste your time on me, you’re already the voice inside my head. I miss you..” whoever it was sang.

“I miss you, Blink182. Right?” I said walking into the living room. There was a different boy sitting on one of the couches. He was blonde and a bit leaner than Ash and Michael. He had a piercing in his lip and might I just say… OH HOT DAYUM! He smiled when he saw me and nodded. “Yeah, you know Blink182?”

“I do, yeah.” I smiled looking down.

“Wow.” He said standing up and holding his hand out towards me. “I’m Luke.”

“Melody.” I said shaking his hand.

“Nice to meet you.” He smiled. I returned the smile and saw three boys coming from the kitchen. Michael, Ash and someone else I didn’t know. Ash blushed when he saw me again and I shifted awkwardly from one foot to the other.

“Oh you must be Melody.” The other boy said. “I’m Calum. You already met Luke there I see and I believe this idiot held you captive.” He pointed at Michael and I nodded. “Well that’s Michael for you.” He said sitting down next to Michael.

Ash cleared his throat awkwardly and stepped forward. “I’m Ashton. Nice underwear by the way.” He chuckled. Luke seemed to choke on his spit. Michael just laughed and Calum didn’t seem to know what was going on. I rolled my eyes and just gave him a tight smile.

“Oh come on babe. Don’t be like that.” He said and I just made a shooing motion with my hand. He frowned and sat down next to Luke.

“Well, now that I know your names, what the hell are you doing in my house and how did you get in?” I asked folding my arms across my chest and trying to act like I had the most self confidence in the world.

“Niall asked us to stay with you for a while. They went on a small trip. 2  months and they’ll be back. Around Christmas I think? Anyway, we’ve been asked to make sure you eat and not do things you’re not supposed to.” Calum rambled on.

I was stunned. Louis or anyone of the boys except Harry would’ve told me if they were going away. Or so I thought.

“What the ever loving fuck..” I sighed and walked back to my room. I slammed the door shut and tried calling Niall. It went straight to voicemail.

“Niall James fucking Horan. Call me whenever you get this. How dare you leave me here with random people I don’t even know! And for two months!” I ranted to the emptiness on the other side and hung up. I tried Louis’ cell and got exactly the same.

“Loueh… you left me.. I’m gonna die without you.. call me please..” I said and hung up. I was near tears by now. Liam and Zayn’s phones did the same. I sighed and threw my phone on the bed. I stood at the end of my bed and stared at my phone. What if they really did leave me and never wanted to talk to me again? What if finding out my secret made them hate me? A tear fell on my arm and I just rolled my eyes. I was being pathetic again. Crying because of stupid reasons. There was a knock on the door and then it was being pushed open carefully.

“Melody? You in here?” I didn’t really recognise the voice, but when I saw him I knew who he was immediately.

“Yeah I’m here.” I said softly turning to face the balcony and quickly wiped the stray tears away.

“Are you okay? I mean you stormed off seeming pretty pissed and I just wanted to check on you. I know having to deal with four people you barely know is hard, but I promise you, we’re not that bad.” Luke said from the door. I don’t know if he was scared to come in or something, but I liked that he respected my space.

“I’m fine.” I lied and faced him. “You can come in if you want to.” He hesitated for a second, but came in anyway closing the door behind him. He looked around my room while I stood awkwardly at the balcony door.

“You have a very nice room.” He smiled and walked over to my wall of photos. It wasn’t anything big really, mostly pictures of my cousins, Jane and Delilah, a few of the boys. There were some of my grandparents and two of my parents. One of their wedding day and the other was of us in front of a waterfall. There were a few of Lou and I as well at work when we were bored.

“Thank you.” I said smiling when my phone rang. Someone was ringing my FaceTime. I ran to my bed and accepted the call. Jane popped up smiling like an idiot.

“Cousin!” she squealed. I cringed and saw Luke was in the shot too.

“Hey Jane..” I said smiling and hoping she didn’t see him.

“How’s it.. wait. Who is that?” she asked squinting.

“Who is who?” I asked playing dumb.

“You know who I’m talking about.” She glared at me. Luke chuckled and turned around.

“Oh, you’re talking about him. Yeah, he’s just the pizza guy.”  I said nonchalantly.

“You lost it to the pizza guy?!” she shrieked.

“What! No!” I blushed. “Jane I’m gonna hang up I swear.”

“Aw look at you! You’re blushing.” That was it. I hung up. Only to have her call again.

“Wow you actually hung up.” She said shocked.

“I warned you, didn’t I?” I shrugged. Luke laughed sitting down next to me.

“Okay, but seriously who are you?” she asked.

“I’m Luke. Nice to meet you.” He chuckled and looked at me. I shook my head.

“Jane is there a reason you called?” I asked annoyed and embarrassed.

“Yeah. I was wondering if Niall is there. I can’t get a hold of him.” She said sheepishly.

“They went on a trip for two months. I can’t get in touch with him either.” I sighed.

“Oh well that’s just great.” She sighed rolling her eyes.

“Don’t even get me started. They left without telling me and when I woke up there were four different boys on my couches. Lukey here was one of them.” I said pointing to him. He gave me a confused smile and shook his head.

“Lukey?” she said choking on her laughter.

“Oh shurrup Jane.” I said rolling my eyes at her.

“Whatever cousin. Bye bye Mel. Bye Lukeyyyy!” she said laughing.

“Bye Janeeeeee!” he said chuckling. I just hung up after that.

“I’m so sorry about that…” I sighed.

“Don’t be. She makes things hyper.” He smiled at me. I laid down and stared at the ceiling. “You sure you’re okay?”

“No, I’m not. My only distraction has abandoned me.” I sighed when I realised what it was I wanted to do.

“Niall told me about.. you’re..” he stumbled on the word.

“My cutting.” I finished for him looking him straight in the eye.

“Yeah.” He said biting his lip nervously. I nodded turning my gaze back to the ceiling. We sat like that for a while in silence. Questions milling around my mind. Why did Harry cheat on me? Why wasn’t I good enough for him? Why did all of them leave? Why didn’t Louis tell me they were going away? Why did he kiss me?

I sighed and held back the tears that were coming.

“They didn’t leave for good you know.” Luke said softly. “All you need is a new distraction.”

“Yeah.. find a new distraction when the old one was barely even there.”

“Come on. I’m going to distract you. Even if just for a little while.” He said getting up off the bed.

“But it’s like 6 already.” I frowned propping up on my elbows.

“Perfect time.” He smiled and held out his hand. I eyed it suspiciously, but took it anyway. He pulled me up, but of course clumsy old me had to trip on thin air. I fell into his arms literally. He was so much taller than me. My head fit perfectly under his chin and it felt surprisingly right.

“You okay?” he chuckled nervously.

“I’m so sorry. I’m such a cluts.” I giggled blushing.

“It’s okay. Do you want to change before we go?” he asked letting go of me hesitantly.

“Where are we going?” I asked.

“It’s a surprise. Or else it won’t be a distraction.” He smiled.

“Oh, well then I’m ready to go.” I said looking down at my clothes.

“Then let’s get going.” He said leading me out of the room and down the stairs.

“Yo.. where you going Luke?” Ashton asked.

“Out. Don’t break the house down. Lou will kill you. With hairspray.” He said and led me out the door to his car. Now this might seem cliché, but I was drooling over his car.

“Luke.. your car..”

“What about it?” he asked concerned.

“It’s fucking gorgeous!” I gasped because in my driveway, well technically Lou’s driveway, was a white Jaguar XKR.

“It’s just a car.” He chuckled opening the passenger door for me. “Don’t drool inside.”

I sat staring at the interior when we pulled out onto the road with ease. You could barely hear the engine. I smiled through the whole drive, but I wasn’t sure if it was because of the car or the boy sitting next to me. We only met, but it felt like I had known him all my life.

“Luke are you going to kill me now?” I asked when we stopped at an empty parking lot near a hill.

“No, why would I do that?” he asked getting out and opening my door.

“Because.. well I guess I wouldn’t know that.” I said stepping out of the car and taking his out stretched hand. He led me up a little stone pathway that reminded me of the yellow brick road from the Wizard of Oz. We had just gotten to the top when the sun started sinking into the horizon. He sat down on the grass and patted the space next to him. I sat down and crossed my legs. The sky was painted with brilliant oranges and dazzling purples. A touch of yellow and pink blended in at some places. It was a moment I certainly wouldn’t forget soon. I very rarely see sunsets seeing as I don’t leave the house that often. I was lost in the sunset when I heard Luke singing softly beside me.

Even when the sky is falling down

Even when the earth is crumbling 'round my feet


Even when we try to say goodbye

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 these skyscrapers, tumble down and crash around baby

We just gotta get out

We just gotta get out


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 these 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

As our love,

Can gp 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 these skyscrapers, tumble down and crash around baby

We just gotta get out

We just gotta get out


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

We just gotta get out

We just gotta get out..” he sang and when I looked at him he just smiled and blushed.

“That was beautiful.” I smiled softly at him.

“Melody, I know what it’s like. This struggle you’re going through. I’ve been there too.  My distraction left me. She promised she wouldn’t, but she did. I didn’t have someone else who would be it, because I didn’t tell anyone else. I found my new distraction eventually.” He said staring off into the space in front of us.

“What was it?” I asked placing a hand on his knee gently.

“The beach. And music. I was on the beach one day just staring out over the ocean when I heard a street performer not far from where I sat. I got up and listened for a good two hours. The girl was still young, but from that day, every day that I went to the beach to think things over, I’d stand and listen for a while. And that’s where I decided I wanted to do music for the rest of my life.” He said looking at me. “I’m sorry, I don’t know why I’m telling you all of this.”

“It’s okay Luke. You need to let things out sometimes and I’ll be here to listen whenever you need to let out.” I said giving him a soft smile. “And sometimes, you just need a hug.”

He chuckled smiling down at me and pulled me onto his lap. He wrapped his arms around me and gave me one of the best hugs I have ever had.

“I meant me giving you one.” I mumbled into his chest.

“I know.” He said and I could hear the smile in his voice. He didn’t let go though.

“You realise how weird this is gonna look to other people?”

“What’s so weird about giving someone a hug?” he asked.

“Uhm, maybe the fact that I’m straddling you.” I pointed out giggling. He chuckled and stood up with me. If I hadn’t wrapped my legs around his waist and my arms around his neck I would’ve been sitting on my arse on the ground.

“And this is going to look even weirder.” He said cupping my bum. My eyes widened and I blushed slightly.

“Yeah no shit.” He started walking back to the car and set me down on the hood. This was all so weird to me. I didn’t know if he was going to try and kiss me now or not. I was hoping he would, but of course he wouldn’t.

“Let’s get going. I’m not done with you yet.” He said holding my door open. I jumped off the hood and got in the car.

Well, after hours and hours of driving from one place to the other, we finally got home. Ashton, Calum and Michael were passed out on the couches, the TV blaring at full volume. I just stared at the sight. How could they sleep with this noise? Luke turned the TV off and shook his head at the mess of cans and candy wrappers on the floor.

“I’m sorry about this. I’ll clean it up first thing in the morning.” He apologised and sat on the floor near Ashton.

“Don’t worry about it, Luke. It’s not that bad.” I said and saw him smile slightly. He pulled the pillow from under Ashton’s head and laid down on the floor looking at me. Ashton groaned and put his arm under his head causing Luke to chuckle. I shook my head smiling at him.

“Goodnight M. Sweet dreams.” He smiled up at me.

“Goodnight Lukey.” I said blushing and walked upstairs after turning the lights off, his eyes never leaving me. I sat in bed after I had changed and stared at my phone. It was 1 AM already. No texts, no missed calls. Nothing. I sighed and tried phoning Louis again, but just like the previous time all I got was voicemail. After deciding that they could go fuck themselves, I went to my profile. I had a few inbox messages, but as I scrolled none really seemed important except for one from Erick. He wanted to meet up again, because apparently the last time he messed up. And believe me he did. Spilling coke on his jeans and dropping his phone in a fountain after insisting I make a wish. Yeah, I admit. He is pretty funny. I replied him with a short when and where question before putting my phone on charge and curling up in my duvet.
