10. Movie Night?

*Sarah's P.O.V*

   By the time we got to the house it was already midnight. So we just quickly brought our stuff in and locked the doors. I gave Luke a quick tour of the house before showing him his room and which room is mine and then we head our different ways going into our rooms to sleep.

   Although I'm exhausted, I can't sleep. My mind is like the road runner running from the coyote's trap. I stare at the blank ceiling thinking about all the things that happened over the past couple days and weeks with the boys. And at about 2am I start thinking about everything that happened before the apocalypse and about my family. I don't know why I do this. I can never sleep and my brain will never shut up so I can sleep. I've already had medication for it, but I ran out halfway last year. I've suffered from this for a while now, I just grew used to it.

  I turn over once again trying to get comfortable before finally drifting off into a light sleep.


   I wake up to subtle snoring which at first scares me because I'm used to living in this house alone, but then I realize it's Luke. I try to go back to sleep but of course my brain refuses, so I decide to get up.

   I look over at my watch seeing that it is 6:30 am. I look out the window to see the sky about to bring the sun into the shady sky of blue, purple, pink, and orange. I scavenge through my bag to find an outfit for today and that's when I find what I'm looking for, my gray shirt and my black baggy sweat pants. I take my clothes and  my other necessities and tip toe to the bathroom placing them in there. I go back into my room to make sure I have everything, then on my way down stairs passing Luke's door which is cracked a little bit, I see him cuddled up to his blanket like a baby and snoring. He looked so peaceful and with his hair all over the place, I wanted to take a picture of him and keep it forever.

  I continue to walk down stairs and I head into the kitchen where I usually keep the bucket for washing. I grab the bucket and head outside to get some water from the well that's in the back yard. I fill the bucket repeatedly and pour it into the bathtub until it's just enough.

    I lock the door and peel off my dirty clothes from yesterday. Even though in the morning it's still a bit chilly I still take baths. I slide into the cold water and start to relax. Letting all of my thoughts go into a trash can, making me relax even more. 

  Right when I start washing one thought comes jumping out of my mental trash can to hit me in the face out of nowhere.

  You like Luke.

 No I don't.

  So which one is it, Luke or Calum?

 What do you mean?

  You know what I mean. Luke or Calum because you can't have the best of two worlds.

 Is it true that I like Luke? 

   Yeah. So which one is it?

 I mean I like Luke in a friend way, but I never really thought of him ever being more than that. 

  Pfft...the way you were admiring him when you saw him sleeping, yeah you totally think of him as a friend.

 I was not admiring Luke this morning.

  Uh yes you were. You even wished you had taken a photo.

 Whatever, but I like Calum.

  Oooh love twist!

 What do you mean? I gave you an answer and now it's a love twist?

  Of course! It's obvious that you like both, so it's a love twist!

 I said I like Luke!

  See what I mean!

 I didn't mean to say that!


    Now I think I'm just having an argument with myself. Maybe I do have feelings for Luke, but I can't like them both, that would tear their friendship and their band apart. And I don't want that to happen because I would have to live with that guilt for the rest of my life.

  I try to stop thinking and finish up my bath. I pull the plug letting all of the water go down into the pipes and I get out and pile my clothes on. I put my hair into a bun and open the door to the smell of pancakes and eggs. I throw my stuff into my room and follow the smell down stairs and into the kitchen to find Luke setting two plates of food on the table.

  " Good morning," I greet drifting towards the food on the table, I am starving.

   " Good morning sunshine," Luke replied smirking at me.

  " Why do you guys call me sunshine when I wake up?" I wonder aloud.

    " I don't know...it just...suits you when you wake up," Luke blushes looking down at the ground.

   I also blush at the compliment.  

  " We can eat now," Luke says settling himself down in the chair across from me.

 I sit down and dig in quickly, I wasn't joking when I said I was starving. I try to eat with lady manners, but I just so hungry. I hear Luke chuckle from across the table.

   I stop eating and ask," What's so funny?"

  " The way you're eating, you remind me of a pig Calum brought home once last year," he blurted out.

 I raise my eyebrow and drop my fork," Are you comparing me to a pig? And I better hope it was an adorable pig too."

  Luke starts to laugh, but I can't help but join in a little too.

  " Yes, I am comparing you to a pig and yes he was quite adorable when he wasn't eating the couch," Luke smiles taking a huge bite out of his pancake.

  I start to laugh even more at what he said and soon he joined back in again. We finish our meals thinking about pigs.

 " I'm going out on a run to um get something, do you need anything?" Luke asks.

 I shake my head," Nope."

  " Okay, I won't be back until later, wish me luck," Luke says about to walk out the door.

 "Bye and good luck on whatever you're going to get," I wave my hand to him as he smiles and walks out the door.

  I walk up to my room and settle down on my bed with a book. After reading for about an hour, I fall into a nice sleep that I've been craving for years. A sleep that's not too soft but not too deep, but just right.


  I wake up to Luke shaking me. I get up and look out the window to see that it is dark outside.

   " How long was I asleep?" I say rubbing my eyes.

   " I don't know, but when I came home you were sleep so I let you continue. Now it's 7 and I thought it was time to wake up," Luke shrugged," Plus I have something to show you."

   I raise my brow at him," What is it? I hope it's not a pig because there's only enough room for one pig in this house and that's me."

   Luke chuckles at my joke and answers," No it's not another pig, I'll show you after dinner."

 He holds out his hand and I take hold of it. We get off my bed and go down stairs to the kitchen to find the table already set along with our meals. The room is filled with lanterns to make it actually seem like the lights were working.

    We let go and walk over to our chairs that we sat in this morning and sit down to enjoy our meal. All the way through the dinner I was anxious about this "something". After we're done, he takes my hand again and leads me outside in the backyard under the moonlight where there's already a blanket laid down on the ground with a guitar on it.

   We plop down on the blanket and Luke pulls the guitar over onto his lap and test play a couple notes before actually playing a song.

" I drove by all the places we used to hang out getting wasted

  I thought about our last kiss, how it felt the way you tasted

  And even though your friends tell me you're doing fine


  Are you somewhere feeling lonely even though he's right beside you?

When he says those words that hurt you, do you read the ones I wrote you?


  Sometimes I start to wonder, was it just a lie?

  If what we had was real, how could you be fine?


 Cause I'm not fine at all


  I remember the day you told me you were leaving

  I remember your make-up running down your face 

  And the dreams you left behind you didn't need them 

  Like every single wish we ever made

  I wish I could wake up with amnesia 

 And forget about the stupid little things

  Like the way it felt to fall asleep next to you

  And the memories I never can escape


  Cause I'm not fine at all


  The pictures you sent me they're still living in my phone 

   I admit I like to see them, I admit I feel alone

  And all my friends keep asking why I'm not around


  It hurts to know you're happy, yeah, it hurts that you moved on

 It's hard to hear your name when I haven't seen you in so long


  It's like we never happened, was it just a lie?

  If what we had was real, how could you be fine?


Cause I'm not fine at all


  I remember the day you told me you were leaving

  I remember the make-up running down your face

  And the dreams you left behind you didn't need them

  Like every single wish we made

  I wish I could wake up with amnesia

 And forget about the stupid little things

  Like the way it felt to fall asleep next you

 And the memories I can never escape 


  If today I woke up with you right beside me

  Like all of this was just some twisted dream

  I'd hold you closer than I ever did before

  And you'd never slip away

  And you'd never hear me say


 I remember the day you told me you were leaving

 I remember the make-up running down your face 

 And dreams you left behind you didn't need them

 Like every single wish we ever made

 I wish I could wake up with amnesia

 And forget about the stupid little things

 Like the way it felt to fall asleep next you 

And memories I can never escape


Cause I'm not fine at all."


  I wanted to cry listening to him singing this song, but I resisted the feeling. For most of the song Luke would stare into my eyes that looked big with sadness and I just wanted to hug him. He has an amazing voice.

  He sets the guitar down and looks into my eyes.

   " It's called Amnesia. So did you like it?" He says raising his eyebrow and stick out bottom lip.

  " Yes, I do and you have a wonderful voice ," I compliment him, smiling.

    He shakes his head looking down at the ground blushing.

 He gets up first stretching out his hand to me again and I take it. We walk back inside with the guitar and blanket. I set the blanket down on the couch and follow him upstairs and into his room. I start to become nervous when he closes the door. He sets his guitar on the wall before setting me down on his bed. He goes over to his desk and pulls out something. 

  Right now my nervousness is running on a high because I'm in a boy's room alone with a boy and sitting on his bed.

 He sits down on the other side of the bed taking his shoes off and showing me what he had got from his desk.

  " I found this mini dvd player with enough battery power to watch at least one movie and I've picked out one of my favorite movies it's called Hitched," he says opening the mini dvd player to turn it on.

 "Oh my gosh! I love that movie," I gush taking off my shoes and climbing under the blanket.

  Luke also climbs under the covers with me. He sets the mini dvd player in the middle so we can both see and he starts the movie. During the movie, I look over at him and say thank you before falling asleep a couple minutes later.

  I fell into a great sleep like the one earlier, but this one more warmer and normal, like I belong in Luke's arms and by his warmth. 

So which one is it? Calum or Luke?


I'm going to try to update as much as I can this summer. I stayed up all night writing this chapter and right now it's 5:03am, so I hope you enjoyed this chapter :)

Who do you think she should choose Luke or Calum?
