3. The talk
I don't know why but I began to walk towards them. In the process, my eyes met with Luke's and I nearly died. I think I just wanted to show that I really do know who they were. I pointed at Calum, I felt my finger shake and I slowly got the words out of my mouth " That's Calum." I moved along the line and was naming them. Once I reached Luke I froze and waited to say " This is ....... Luke," I could hardly get his name. I looked up and our gaze met again.
I noticed that we were all starring at this estranged girl which made me realize that no of us have ever settled down or had a serious relationship. I began to think that maybe this girl would come into our lives and change that a after all we were soon getting a 1 year vacation. A couple of months ago Luke had just turned 22 and was a bit bummed that he was single. Maybe this girl could help him. Anyways, this girl soon had all her co-workers surrounding her and they were all trying to talk to her but she seemed focused on us which I liked. Despite all the attention she was getting , she was friendly and quite humble to us and to her co-workers who looked like her friends. I looked over at the boys and realized that Luke was completely mesmerized by her. I began asking her questions just so we can get to know her better. She was 20 and was about to be 21 in 2 weeks. Wow, she is really young. Her friends left and were headed towards some rocks not to far away from us. I then hear Ashton, " You aren't fully American, right? " She giggled and in the sweetest voice said " No, both of my parents are from Mexico but I grew up here." Calum was even more intrigued and told her , his profound love for Mexico. She laughed and said " Oh, Calum I think we'll get along great." She smiled and said " You guys are amazingly talented and really nice." We all smiled at her and I even felt myself blush. She later mentioned that her name was Jessica but everyone calls her Jessica. Jessica. Jessica Garcia.
Her name was Jessica. Jess. Why couldn't I just have the courage to talk to her? She turned to me and smiled. " Hey Mr. Shy , why aren't you talking?" Shit. I froze in that instant.
I was fascinated by all the boys. I mean come on I was and still am such a huge fan. But Luke. Uff Luke . He just intrigued me the most but he wasn't talking at all. He finally responded to my question, " Oh , sorry. Um I was just thinking." He turned to his band mates and then to John and said " I think it's time to go shoot the video." I don't know why but those words hurt me. I thought there was a connection between us but apparently it was just me. I annoyed him. I managed to fake a smile even though I was dying inside. With the best way possible I said "Okay, well I'll leave you guys to it. Bye it was great meeting you boys." As I walked away , I waved back and they all waved back except for Luke. Ouch. I finally was reunited with my friends at our rocks.
Ahh, what the hell is Luke thinking?! It was so obvious that Jess was into him and he came off as a complete ass!!! John began to set up as he talked to Charlotte. I could tell that Calum was into Jess too but just not as passionate as Luke. When we were alone, I punched Luke in the arm . He was surprised " What the that for ?! " "For being an ass and forcing that cute girl to leave! What is wrong with you? You were so into her, dumbass." The guys began insulting him too.
Wow. Was I really that obvious? Oh my god , they were right. What did I just do? They called us over to begin shooting. All I could think about was how I just ruined my chances with Jess.... no. Was I that stupid?
