The rest of the night was interesting and hilarious.
He finally left and I fell asleep.
The next morning I got dressed and headed outside.
I sat next to Luke who looked like he was going to cry.
"Luke...?" I said sitting my bag down, sliding in next to him.
"Uh yes..?" He sniffled trying to secretly wipe away a tear.
"What's wrong...?" "I'll tell you at school..."
"Okay..." I bit my lip, nervous. I was worried for him.
When the bus stopped Luke grabbed my arm and dragged me into the school and took me into the handicapped bathroom(One stall) and locked it.
He burst into tears.
"Luke? What happened?"
He mumbled something.
"Luke I can't hear you. Look at me..." I grabbed his face to look at me.
He tried to stop. "I'm sorry Ari, me and my mom had a fight and she said she never wanted me in this world and I was hurt because we were so close and we've done nothing but fight lately. I'm sensitive and I hold my tears all the time but you're the only who I've cried in front of. I last cried when my dad died."
"Luke she didn't mean it. It's okay, you're okay..."
"But I'm crying Ari!! Why?!"
"Because, when you cry, it's real."
He looked at me and smiled through his tears.
"And I'm not going to leave you. You are my friend," I grabbed his hand to comfort him, "And friends never leave each other."
He looked at me again with the happiest look and gave me the biggest hug.
The bell rang. No one would be in the hallway.
We walked out, luckily no one saw, and foolishly our school has no cameras for security reasons.
I walked to my locker as he went the other way.
I didn't expect to see Michael considering I was in the bathroom so I shrugged it off.
It became lunch time.
I didn't see Michael.
Luke, Calum and Ashton were all cracking up at our little lunch table as I sat there sad poking at my food.
"Wow Ari you look like you just got out of bed with the outfit," Calum laughed.
Luke looked a little pissed but I mouthed to him 'no.'
"Thanks....It's just something I threw together."
After the day ended I went home. I lay on my bed and get a call from my dad.
"Hey sweetie, I'm sorry there's a complication and they're flying me to Michigan for another two weeks..."
"Daddy it's okay, I'll have Calum over some days. I'll be fine."
"Okay love you baby girl, bye."
"Love you too dad, bye."
I sighed and looked down.
Then my phone buzzed.
Luke: heyo! It's Luke (:
Ariana: Hey (:
Luke: Thanks for today..
Ariana: Anytime :D
Luke: do you want to hang out at the mall?
Ariana: Yes, of course. How's 4:30?
Luke: that'll be good! See you soon (((:
Ariana: bye bye! :)))
I began to wonder why I didn't see Michael all day.
I decided to call him.
"Hey, it's Ari!"
"Oh, um okay. Why weren't you at school?"
"I didn't feel well."
"Oh, I'm sorry."
"Yeah, it's cool."
He sounded really pissed.
"Why do you sound so pissed?"
"Can you come over?"
"Yeah. I can't stay for long though."
I threw on a black tank top with a blue and black flannel and tight, ripped, black skinny jeans.
I headed over to the address Michael texted me.
