13. Chapter 12
"Finally, I can go back to sleep!" I smiled, falling back on the hotel bed.
"Damn, babe. Are you really that tired?" Luke asked. I nodded.
Luke crawled into the bed with me and pulled the covers up to our shoulders.
"I love you.." he said, wrapping his arm around my waist.
“I love you, too…” I said.
The next morning, I woke up, with a note stuck to my forehead.
I giggled as I pulled it off. Luke does the weirdest things.
We went to set up for the concert tonight. Lucas is with us, and we didn’t want to wake you up since you were so tired yesterday. I’ll come back later to get you. If you need anything, call me.
I decided to get up and take a quick shower before he came to get me. I sat up of the bed, and slowly pushed myself off. I made my way to the small bathroom in the room, and turned on the water. I stepped into the shower and let the hot water relax my body. I heard the bathroom door open, and I stuck my head out of the shower curtain.
“Hey, babe..” Luke said.
“Hey…” I smiled, and went back to my shower. “How was setting up everything for tonight?”
“It was okay, I guess… Lucas is excited to see us perform.”
“Where is he?”
“He’s with the boys. I only left long enough to get you…”
“Okay, I’ll be done in a minute…” I said, and turned off the water. I reached out of the curtain and grabbed my towel. “Can you bring me my clothes that are laying on the bed, please?”
Luke got up, and walked into the room. I stepped out of the shower, wrapping the towel around my body. I brushed my hair, and Luke came back in with my clothes.
“Is this the first show you’ve been to?” Kyra asked me.
“Yea, it is. Luke and I got together right after the One Direction tour ended. I never knew he was even in a band until we got back together.” I said.
“You two were together before?” Tyler asked.
“Yes… We first got together when we were 15. A little over a year later, I got pregnant with Lucas, and Luke left us. He said he wasn’t ready for a kid. So, I raised him until he was 4 and Luke showed back up, apparently ready to be a father to our child.”
Tyler nodded, and the boys came up to us.
“The concert starts in 30 minutes and the opening act isn’t here yet…” Ashton said.
“What are you going to do?” Devon asked.
“Shawn Mendes…” Calum spat.
“Ugh, why does it have to be him?” I asked.
“Cause they couldn’t find anyone else…” Luke said.
“Guys, we’re sorry, but Shawn couldn’t make it… So, 5sos will be on soon!” John, their manager, told the card.
The crowd cheered and John walked off stage.
As I walked on stage, I suddenly felt a wave of nervousness come over me. I could feel everyone’s eyes on me as I got ready to sing. I looked to my side, and I saw Maci smiling at me. I smiled back, and some of the nervousness relieved.
“I love you…” she mouthed.
“I love you too…” I mouthed back.
