"So you don't like scary movies?" Luke walked in while I put on perfume.
He knows when I am and am not changing.
I told him when the door's open, he's allowed to walk in.
"Nope," I looked at him through the vanity mirror.
"Why go then?" He laughed.
"Because, I might like it. And it'll be fun," I laughed as well.
"Whatever," he smiled.
"Wish you could go," I said sarcastically, sticking my tongue out at him.
"You wish I could go!" He scoffed.
"Mhm, sure do," I said picking out a different shirt.
"Wow," he laughed and plopped onto my bed.
I picked up a red shirt.
It was sleeveless and was an hourglass shape. It hugged my waist and the bottom flared out.
Luke smiled at me, "Red's good. Wear it!"
"You're like a girl!" I laughed at him and walked to the bathroom to change.
"Looks good," he nodded as I walked back in, joking like I was a model.
"I know," I flipped my hair with my hand.
"Self-centered," he coughed.
"Don't even go there!" I threw my shoe at him.
"Woah there!" He shrieks.
I slid on dark blue skinny jeans and red flats.
"How do I look?" I spun around in front of him, who was sitting on my vanity chair.
"Like I said, 'good.' I like the flats though. Nice touch."
I smiled, "Okay, good. Thanks."
"Anytime," he smiled back.
The doorbell rang.
I walked halfway down the stairs before Luke shouted behind me.
"Yes?" I turned to him.
"You forgot your phone," he handed it to me.
"Thank you," I smiled and gave him a hug.
He hugged tightly and let go of me.
"I'll try. If I don't pee," I giggled and opened the door.
Michael and I pulled up to the theater.
"Have you seen the other two?" He asked as we walked up to the line to buy tickets.
"No," I laughed. "I'm not a fan of scary movies. But I want to see this."
I lied to make him feel better.
"Okay, cool," he laughed as well and paid for our tickets.
The movie was almost over.
My phone buzzed in my pocket. Twice.
A missed call from my dad.
And the one ringing now was Luke.
"Michael, I need to use the restroom," I whispered, "be right back."
"Luke? What the heck-"
"Ari, your dad called Calum and he said he's looking for you. He's coming to my house."
"Wait what?" I huffed.
"I think you should come back," he said.
I sighed, "Okay. I'll be there soon."
I told Michael and he brought me back to Luke's.
"Again, I'm sorry. It was still fun," I smiled.
"It's fine. Family first," he smiled and pulled off.
I ran inside and my dad hadn't arrived yet.
"Hey," Luke hugged me.
Calum was there as well.
"Hey," he hugged me as well.
"Hi. What are you doing here?"
"Your dad went to your house and you weren't there. He called me? I didn't know why. But I told him you were here and he told me to come to Luke's also..."
I hope nothing bad happened.
"Hey dad!" I gave him a huge hug.
"Hey sweetie! I called and you didn't answer, and you were't home, so I called Calum about it. He told me you were on a date so I didn't call back. But he told me you've been staying here."
"So why did you ask him to come?" I questioned him.
"That's the thing. I'm...Moving to Michigan. I got a job offer after the work I've done up there. But you're coming too, right?" He said.
I inhaled heavily.
Luke looked sad.
So did Calum.
And Ms. Hemmings.
"Two days. I'm leaving tomorrow. You're flying down Wednesday. Unless you don't want to come...?"
He could hear the uncertainty in my voice.
"Ari, you should go. He's your dad. You can make new friends, but you won't have another dad," Calum said.
I looked at Luke.
He didn't speak.
Just stared at me.
"I'll go," I said.
"Okay, well I have to go. See you Wednesday," he kissed my head and left.
Luke was gone when I turned back around.
I hugged Calum tightly.
He sighed and rubbed my back, "I sure will miss you, nasty."
"Me too, idiot."
