Teenage Memories

"Can you just promise me one thing?" he asks looking down at me with wonder filled eyes. "What?" I ask still looking up at him curious as to what he might wanna know. "This time, can you stay?"


8. 18th Birthday

After Ashton had left, I sat on my bed feeling like a complete idiot. Luke is the best guy to consider me a friend and I have been and idiot and ditched him but I still haven't made an attempt to talk to Luke and I talked to Ashton two days ago… Today is my 18th birthday and I am doing absolutely nothing. I was going to invite all the guys to come over and just chill in my bcd yard and have a bonfire or something but since I ruined that, it wasn't going to happen-


I looked up at my bedroom door then got up and walked downstairs to see who was here. When I got to the front door, I looked out the peep hole and when I saw who it was I almost fell backwards to the floor. Luke- but why would he be here?I thought he was upset with me? I let out a sigh and opened the door to face Luke.

He looked up at me and I saw how his eyes changed when he saw me, "Kara-"

​"Yes?" I said eagerly.

I saw the corner of his mouth twitch as if he wanted to smile but he quickly ignored it, "I umm, can I explain something?"

This was most likely about what happened at the party. I wanted to know what happened but then again I don't. I push aside my childish behavior and nod once before stepping out onto the porch and closing my front door behind me.

"Look, everybody know's I am an idiot and that I can't do anything right… You have probably figured out that Aleisha is my ex and things ended badly between us. She was messing around with other guys and didn't think I would find out but I did and when I found out the whole truth, I ended things with her. She didn't take it well and tried to turn things back onto me but that's not the case at all! But- what happened at the party was honestly nothing… That was Lily, Aleisha's best friend, and I wanted to finish figuring out the truth but then you walked in and as soon as I saw you I realized that I didn't need to know the truth because her and I are over- for good and nothing is going to change that."

I waited a few seconds to make sure he was finished trying to explain before I replied, "I should have let you explain- you don't even need to explain though because you and I are just friends and nothing more so I had no right to do what I did and treat you how I did- I acted as a child would and I feel really stupid about it too. You shouldn't have to be the one who comes to my house to apologize for something I did and honestly I wouldn't blame you if you never wanted to talk to me- I asked ashton to come over the other day and he talked to me and told me that you have been putting on an act on how you are feeling because they all know you are upset but-"

Before I got to finish my sentence, Luke's hands flew up to cup my face and his lips met mine as he pressed me back up against the door. At first I was shocked at his actions and didn't know what to do because I hadn't realized what was going on but as soon as I figured it out, my arms slithered up around his neck and I pulled him closer to myself as I let myself kiss him in return. I let my lips move in sync with his because I honestly had no clue what I was truly doing- Luke is the first guy I have ever kissed and I am loving it. His hands moved down and rested on my his. When he broke the kiss, he rested his forehead on mine and lightly squeezed at my hips.

"Kara, I care a lot about you and it's taken me a lot to admit this to myself and right now to you as well and I shouldn't have done what I did knowing how I felt about you…"

"Luke- how? I mean- why?"

"You are sweet and caring and beautiful and just everything about you, to me, is perfect."

I looked him in the eyes and I could see that he was telling the truth and that made me so damn happy. I couldn't help but smile up at him and when I did this he smiled back and pecked me on the lips before pulling away and grabbing my hands.

"So, can you come over to my house? I have a surprise for you," He smiled again.

I nodded at him again and he let go of one of my hands and lead me over to his house. When we got over to his house, we went to his basement and I saw the guys were waiting for us with their instruments, "What's this?" I asked looking up at him.

He smiled down at me again, "I kind of wrote a song for you…"

My eyes got wide when I realized what he said and I got really excited, "Can I hear it?"


He gave me a quick kiss on the cheek then went over to his microphone, "This song is called Mrs. All American and it is for you Kara!"


As the boys sang the song written for me, I couldn't help but blush because it was for me and because Luke kept looking at me. When the song was over, Luke stopped to catch his breath and looked at me with that same smile plastered on his face then walked over to me.

"Did you like it?" he asked grabbing my waist and pulled me closely.

"I loved it!" I almost squealed.

"Happy 18th birthday beautiful," he whispered before placing his lips to mine and giving me a savoring kiss.
