Fate || Luke Hemmings

Luke and Avery has been best friends for as long as they can remember. They start to have feelings for each other but, never tell one another, believing the other doesn't feel the same. When Luke heads back on tour with the band, he leaves her behind. Being busy with rehearsals and signings, he never had time to contact her, nor has he even try. Avery, being over-analytical, soon loses hope and tries moving on; changing her number and even moving houses. When Luke finally returns home, he tries to call her, which he gets no connection. Getting confused on why his call wasn't going through, he drives over to her place; soon finding out that she has moved. Now he only has 2 choices; Try to move on and forget her or Try and find her All rights reserved © LashtonCashton 2014


1. Prologue

✧ Avery ✧


"Do you have to leave?" Luke sighs, zipping up his suitcases. "I don't really have a choice, Avery." He looks up at me, clearly annoyed. I finally snapped. I'm not going to deal with his attitude, anymore. "What happened to the Luke I met when I moved here? The sensitive, caring one. The one who knows how to control his anger? Because clearly, this-" I gesture to him. "Is not him." He stands up with his suitcase and looks at me. "I grew up." He simply states walking out of the room. I stood there, shocked. Luke has never spoken to me like that before. Ever since I met him, he's been caring and sensitive. He has never talked to anyone like that before. I stood up from his bed and go downstairs, grabbing my stuff from the table. Walking out the front door, I spot the rest of the boys by the driveway, packing Ashton's car. They must have just arrived. I didn't bother saying bye, I just started walking home since I don't drive. 

I got home, kicking off my shows at the shoe rack. Walking into the kitchen, I decide to get something to eat. While in the middle of making a peanut butter and jam sandwich, my phone starts to vibrate, indicating I got a text. 

Where did you go? 

Why would he care? I just clicked reply.

I left. 

I finished making my lunch and sat down on the couch, turning on the TV. I live alone, with my dog, Patches. He jumps up on the couch beside me, lying down. I put my now empty plate down on the table, grabbing the remote afterwards. Switching through the channels, I finally found my favourite show; Supernatural. 

Patches whines at the back door, signaling he needs to go out. I stand up, walking over to the door leading to the backyard and open it. "There you go, little guy." He runs out and does his business. I left the door open and walked away, hearing the phone ringing. 

"Hello?" I say, picking up the plate on the table and walking to the kitchen. "Hey, it's Charlotte." I smile, putting the plate in the sink. "Hey, Char. What's up?" I walk back into the living room, realizing Patches ran back in the house. "Nothing. How's Luke?" She says, flirtatiously. "Don't get me fucking started." I closed the back door and walk back to the couch, sitting down. "Uh-oh, what happened? You guys have never fought before." I sighed. "I know. I don't know what happened. I asked him what happened to the old Luke I met when I moved here. Want to know what his answer was?" I hear her shuffling. Probably moving the phone to the other ear. "What?" She says. "I grew up." I re-positioned myself on the couch. "Are you serious? What an ass." She scoffs. "Tell me about it. He walked out of the room to pack Ashton's car so, I just got up and left." I look at my cell, seeing I got a message from Luke. "Oh, look who just messaged me." I say, clicking on the message. "What does he want now?" Charlotte says, sounding irritated. "He's apologizing." I say, reading his message. 

I'm sorry. I shouldn't have snapped at you. 

I roll my eyes, clicking reply. "Don't forgive him, Avery." I hear Charlotte say on the other line. "I'm not." 

Sorry doesn't cut it. You're not the same Luke I met when I moved here. I don't even know who you are anymore...

I press send and repeat my message to Charlotte. "Good for you. It'll teach him a lesson." I laugh, looking down at my wallpaper on my phone which is Luke and I. A frown appears on my face and I set my cell down. "You still like him, don't you?" She says, concern filling her voice. "I don't know," I sigh, leaning back on the couch. "When is he leaving for the tour?" I sigh. "Tomorrow morning." I answered. "I'm coming over. Be there in a few," we say goodbye and hang up, putting the phone to charge.

"Come in!" I yell, from the kitchen. Charlotte walks in, with her dog. "I decided to bring Maxx over." I nod, smiling. She takes the leash off Maxx and he runs into the living room.  "So, how are you doing?" I shrug and take a sip out of my water bottle. "Good, I guess." She nods, looking around. "Did he reply to your text yet?" I shake my head. "No. And if he did, I'm ignoring him." She smiles and we walk into the living room, sitting down on the couch. I looked at the time which read 5:15pm. "Let's go take our dogs to the park," she nods, calling over Maxx. I grab Patches' leash and call him over, bending down to attach it. 

We enter the dog park, letting our dogs off the leash. "So what are you going to do?" I look at her, confused. "About what?" We walk over to a bench and sit down. "About Luke. You guys have been friends for so long, you can't just give up on each other. Plus," She pauses, smirking. "Plus what?" I look at her, suspiciously "You fancy him! You can't just give up!" I roll my eyes. "Yes, I can." She raises her eyebrows. "Why don't you ever make a move on him?" I just scoff. "Because, I'm not up for rejection." I check my phone noticing he actually did message back. 

Please forgive me, I don't want to leave knowing my best friend is mad at me. :-(

I smile slightly at his ridiculous sad face he always uses. "You're smiling down at your phone! See, you do still like him!" Charlotte squeals and I glare at her. "Shut up." She shuts her mouth put still has a smirk on her face. 

Fine. I forgive you :-) But what you said really hurt. 

I pressed send and waited for a reply. "You're still into him." Charlotte says after a moment. "Shut up!" I stand up turning around. "Let's head back now, I'm starving." She smirks, not saying anything because she already knows what I'm going to say to her. "Let's go," She says instead and calls over Maxx. Patches walks over and I bend down, attaching the leash to him. 

"Want to stay for dinner?" I ask her, as we walk in the door. "Sure! What are you making?" I shrug taking the leash off Patches, setting it on the table by the door. "I don't know. What do you feel like eating?" She copies my actions and sits down at the kitchen table. "Let's just order food." I finally say, getting the phone from the living room. "Pizza?" I suggest and she nods, smiling. 

"Thank you!" I say, handing the money to the guy at the door and close it, bringing the pizza into the kitchen. We ate our pizza in peace until I heard a knock at the door. "Wonder who that could be," Charlotte sings and I shoot her a glare. I walk over to the door and open it. "Hi." I simply say, seeing Luke standing on my porch. "Hi. I'm here to apologize." I nod, smiling a little. "I said I forgave you," I let him in and shut the door behind me. "I know but, I'm leaving tomorrow morning and I don't want to leave without giving you a proper apology." I smile and walk into the kitchen where Charlotte is sitting at the table, finishing off her pizza slice. "Hey Charlotte," Luke says, waving. She waves back, smiling. "Want some pizza?" I gesture over to the pizza box and he nods, smiling. "Sure," 

"I want a re-match!" Charlotte exclaims. We're sitting at the table in the living room playing Monopoly. "Well, It's getting late so I'm going to head home." Luke says standing up. "Okay," I say, standing up and walking him to the door. He opens the door and turns around to face me. "Are you coming to the airport tomorrow?" I shrug. "What time?" He thinks for a moment. "8?" I nod, smiling. "I'll be there." I give him a hug and he leaves. 


"Avery, wake up!" Charlotte decided to stay the night. "What?" I groan, rubbing my eyes. "You need to meet Luke at the airport," I quickly sit up. "Okay, i'm up. What time is it?" I ask, still half asleep. "7:00am." I nod and stand up, stretching. "Okay, I'll tell you when I'm ready." Charlotte leaves the room, shutting the door behind her. I change into some clean clothes and grab my phone from the table, putting it in my pocket. 

"Okay, let's go!" Charlotte nods and we walk out the door and to her car that was parked in my driveway. "Are you going to live while he's gone?" I turn and look at her. "Yes, It's only 8 months." She just laughs, keeping her eyes on the road. "8 months is a long time," I shrug and look out the window. "It's not like he's going to forget me or anything." 


Charlotte pulls up in a parking spot and we get out, walking to the entrance. "There they are," I point over to where 4 boys were standing with their luggage. We walk over to them, waving. "Hey guys," I say and they turn and look at me. "Hey, Avery." Ashton says, giving me a hug. I hug the rest of the boys and look at Luke, who's doing something on his phone. Probably Twitter. "When is your flight?" I ask, starting conversation. "Should be here in 5 minutes." Michael replies, smiling. I nod and look at Charlotte who is standing beside be, quietly. 

The person on the intercom announces their flight and Ashton turns to look at me. "That's our flight!" He gives me and Charlotte a hug. "See you girls in 8 months," I smile and he walks away with his luggage. I hug the rest of the boys and turn to Luke who's waiting for his turn. "Well, guess this is a goodbye," I say, forcing a smile. "For now," he returns the smile and pulls me into a hug. "Come on, Luke!" Calum yells. We pull away and Luke smiles, slightly. "Bye, Avery." I just nod and smile. "Bye, Lukey." He turns around and walks to the others, disappearing into the crowd. I sigh and turn to Charlotte. "Well, this is going to be a long 8 months."
