5SOS: How to Change a Bad Boy

Make a girl fall in love with you in thirty days (or less). Breaking innocent and naive girls' hearts for their own entertainment. That was the game that they played, and Luke Hemmings was the very best. When he's given a victim, he thinks it's no big deal and does it for the quick and easy cash, but he had no idea what he was getting himself into when he said he wanted a more difficult target.

Everything had frozen. My thoughts were spinning like a roller coaster in my head and my heart was beating at the speed of light. I couldn't think straight and I woke her up, kissing her.

"Luke," she mumbled into the kiss, shocked, but I continued to kiss her.

"Come on," I took her hand, "there's something I want to do." I pulled her hand and led her to the balcony that I climbed in through. She was wearing a pair of plaid pajama pants and a black nirvana shirt that I had lent to her. When we stood on the balcony, I looked up, noticing that the roof was flat in one spot. "Here," I said, standing on the wall of the balcony, climbing on top of the roof. I helped her up as well, and we laid back, gazing up at the stars. Our eyes met, and I smiled. There's something I've been meaning to tell you," I told her. She glanced at me with a worried look on her face. "It's a good thing...well I hope you think so." I smirked, causing her to loosen up a bit.

There was an awkward silence and she giggled. "Well, are you going to tell me? Or did you drag me on top of a roof at like three in the morning for no reason?"

I chuckled. "I was getting to that."

"Go on, rockstar," she giggled.

"I've only known you for two weeks," I started until she interrupted me.

"11 days," she corrected.

"Right, 11 days," I continued, "but when I'm around you, I feel like a new person. A better person than the player I used to be," I paused, trying to figure out what I was saying. "What I'm trying to say is that I'm not a guy that believes in true love and happily ever afters, but you make me want to. And if the way I feel about you isn't love, then every Nicholas Sparks description of it is wrong, because Autumn, I'm hopelessly falling in love with you."

"Luke," Autumn gasped, blinking back tears. I smiled and she pressed her lips gently to mine. "I love you too."

I rolled over so that I was closer to her, and she wrapped her arms tightly around me, laying her head on my chest. We both drifted off, entwined in each other's arms.

I woke up the next morning with a couple of texts from Demi and Mikey, asking where we were. I replied saying we fell asleep on the roof in each other's arms and they told me to proceed and Michael gave me a round of applause. Autumn woke up a little while after I did, and I kissed her on the cheek.

"Good morning, beautiful," I whispered, pecking her on the lips.

She rolled her eyes, "Morning, Luke."

We headed back down from the roof and into the kitchen of their apartment, where we had met up with the others. Demi glanced over at me and winked, pulling Autumn back into the bedroom to tell her about the concert.

"Are you fucking stupid?" Michael asked me after I told him about the secret "I love you's" Aut and I had exchanged the night before.

Ashton covered his face with his hands and shook his head. "Luke, if Calum finds out, it's over for the two of you. You will lose her. You need to tell her."

"I agree with Ash, you need to tell her," Michael said, looking me dead in the eye. "If you don't, you can sure as hell expect me to."

"Guys, I really do love her," I pleaded, and they gave each other a look.

"Look, Luke, we believe you, but Cal is another story. You know how into the game he gets," Ashton said and I sighed.

Mikey nodded in agreement, "I can tell that you love Autumn. Your eyes fill with happiness and so much passion when you look at her. Falling in love is the best way to kill your own heart because it's not yours anymore."

"You're right, Mikey. I just don't want to lose Autumn."

"You can't just...not tell her about the bet though," Mikey told me and I nodded.

"I know, but what am I supposed to say? 'Hey Autumn, the only reason I asked you out was for a bet I made with Calum but I ended up really falling in love with you'?"

"You...what?" Autumn asked, tears covering her eyes.

"I-Autumn, wait!" I ran after her, chasing her to her room. I got there just in time before she shut the door.

"Tell me everything," she demanded, trying to hide the fact that she was crying. And so I did.

"You used me for a stupid bet?" She yelled. "How could I be so fucking stupid?! No boys talked to me before you for a reason, Luke! I'm the ugly, fat bitch that nobody fucking wants and I'm supposed to think you're in love with me?" She broke down, crying.

"Autumn if you'll just let me-" I tried to explain but she cut me off.

"You don't love me," she said in a faint voice, shaking her head. "And the sad part is that I really do love you."

Before she could say anything else I stood up and began to explain. "You're fucking wrong. I'm in love with you. You're the first girl that's actually made me feel alive. You make me feel like more than the absolute jackass I used to be to girls. I haven't even LOOKED at another girl since I've been with you. So you can accuse me of screwing with you for the first two days, but you can be sure as hell that I've never loved anything or anyone the way that I love you. Before you came into my life, I didn't even believe love existed." I knew that Demi, Mikey, and Ashton were all downstairs in the living room and could most definitely hear the entire fight.

"Why'd you agree to do the bet?" She asked me.

"Because I'm stupid. I shouldn't have agreed to it, but after getting the chance to fall in love with you, I'm glad I did. I won't take the money from Calum, even if you leave me right now."

"The problem is, I can't. I can't just leave you that easily. I wish I could just forget the words that you said and the way that you kissed me and-" I cut her off, pressing her against the back of the door, and kissing her. I kissed her with so much passion, so much love, and I kissed her like no man had ever kissed a woman before.

"Luke..." She warned, breaking away from the kiss. "We can't..." She gently pushed me away, rushing out of the bedroom.

"Autumn!" I called, running after her. "Autumn. Please. I love you."

"No you don't," she shook her head and I took a step closer to her.

"I really do."

"Get out." She demanded.

"What?" I asked, taken aback by her demand.

"You heard me. Get out." She pointed to the door.

I turned toward the door when a voice stopped me. "Luke, wait. Autumn, this is my apartment, too. I would really like it if Luke stayed around," Demi said.

"Thanks, Demi."

She nodded and Autumn's eyes filled up like water balloons.

"Fine. I'll go then," she said, pulling out her phone. "Hey, Calum, it's Autumn. Can I come over? Great. See you then. Thanks."

"Autumn..." I had began, but she already slammed the front door. "Demi, why'd you stick up for me instead of killing me for hurting her?"

"I saw the way you looked at her, Luke. I'm not blind. You love her a lot, she will just need time to get over this."

I sighed, sitting down on the couch and placing my head into my hands. "Easy for you to say, you and Michael are engaged to be engaged to be engaged."

She giggled. "Luke, Autumn loves you. She might not show it right now because she tends to shut down when she's upset, but she does."

"I hope you're right," I grumbled.

I watched as her car left the driveway, hoping that for some reason, she might come back and launch herself into my arms.

"She's not really going to Calum's, Luke," Demi said.

"How do you know that?"

"Because every time she is upset she goes to the old and abandoned playground that we met at. There's a bridge and a lake nearby and she parks her car there and listens to Nirvana and Radiohead for a little while."

What Demi had told me made a lot of sense. I looked over at Ash, who was sitting quietly and staring at his feet. I began to brainstorm ways I could fix this, but I had absolutely nothing. I couldn't stop thinking about what Michael had said earlier about how falling in love was the best way to kill your own heart. If this was true then my heart had been shut in a coffin and buried six feet under.

In that moment, I realized that Nicholas Sparks and John Green were right in the way that they described being in love. Although, they didn't describe that realizing you've fallen in love is a moment of fear, because if you love someone, there is always a chance that it will be unrequited or that it will come to an end.

It's an enormous risk. If I gamble all of my chips, I might lose everything, but to me, Autumn is my everything.

She's a risk worth taking.
