"Hey, How long have you been awake?."
Luke asked walking out of the bathroom.
he had a towel wrapped around his waist and water dripping from his wet hair.
"Um since five thirty, I couldn't sleep."
I had gotten up and taken a shower and put on some makeup, but I decided to just put back on some sleeping clothes.
"You know you could have woken me up, so you weren't up for so long alone babe."
He said sitting next to me.
"Luke, Ashley. We're gonna go have breakfast with jack. Would you two like to come?"
Luke looked at me.
"No thanks mom."
He said not waiting for me to answer. But honestly I didn't really wanna go, I mean I love spending time with Luke and his family, but I'm not in the best mood today.
"Okay, there's food in the fridge. Be ready by the time we get back, we're going to the beach later."
"Alright, see you later."
I heard them walk away, and Luke wrapped his arm around me, kissing my cheek.
"Do you feel alright?"
He asked rubbing his hand up and down my arm.
The word escaped my mouth quietly.
He pecked my lips and stood up.
"I'm gonna go get some water. Do you want anything?"
I shook my head and he walked out of the room.
A couple of minutes later he walked back in, drinking out of a glass.
He set it down on his dresser and laid down on the bed.
"Come lay with me."
He said opening his arms.
I smiled and laid my head on his bare chest.
He played with my fingers while I rested my hand on the side of his torso.
I moved my head onto his pillow so we were face to face.
I mumbled, my hand on his cheek.
"I forgot what I was gonna say."
We both laughed.
"Your so cute."
He said kissing my nose.
It went silent and we just looked at each other for a second before I pressed my mouth to his.
I ran my hand through his damp hair and slowly climbed on top of him without breaking the kiss.
I felt his smile against my lips as I gently pulled on his hair.
his hands moved down to my butt and he flipped me over so he was on top.
His lips moved from mine and left soft wet kisses down my jawline, then down my neck.
My breathes became short and quick as he helped me take off my shirt, and connected his lips to my stomach.
I felt his lip ring and tongue against my skin above the waist of my shorts as he softly sucked.
His name breathlessly came out of my mouth.
I pulled on his arm, his face now back in front of mine and reconnected my lips with his as he slid off my bottoms, throwing them to the floor along with his towel.
I watched as Luke strummed the strings on his acoustic guitar, the bed sheet covering his lower half.
"Can you Play me a song?"
I asked scooting next to him, holding the blanket to my chest.
"Yea. What song?"
He said leaning over and kissing me.
After watching him think for a couple of seconds, he resumed strumming the strings. At first I didn't know what he was playing, but I finally made it out as kiss me by Ed sheeran.
"Settle down with me."
The first lyrics came from his mouth as he looked at me.
"Cover me up, cuddle me in. Lay down with me, And hold me in your arms...And your heart's against my chest, lips pressed to my neck, I'm falling for your eyes, but they don't know me yet, and with a feeling I'll forget, I'm in love now..."
He smiled at me as he continued.
"Kiss me like you wanna be loved...you wanna be loved...you wanna be loved
This feels like falling in love
Falling in love
We're falling in love."
He finished the song, and leaned the guitar against the side of the bed, then looked to me.
"Did you like it?"
"I loved it."
I told him running my hand across his cheek as
"Luke, I love you."
"I love you."
He said kissing my forehead.
I heard Liz say, then the front door close.
"Alright, we'll be right out."
Luke replied before kissing my lips then getting up and slipping on some bottoms.
"I'll go out there until you get dressed."
He said walking out and closing the door behind him. Right away I heard his brother's voice, then his as they started talking.
I got up and put on a peachy colored tribal print bathing suit top, with black bottoms and a white fishnet cover up dress over top with some white sandals.
I grabbed a small tote bag and but some other clothes in it for later In case we went anywhere else after the beach.
I called, and it didn't take long for him to come into the room.
He said poking his head through the door.
"I'm done. Here, you can put your things in here if ya want."
I said handing him my bag.
He grabbed the bag and walked in.
"Hey Ashley. Haven't seen you in awhile."
Jack greeted as I walked out of the room.
"Yea, it's been awhile."
He gave me a quick hug, then Luke came out of the room.
"You two ready?"
Luke replied swinging his arm over my shoulder.
" are you gonna ride with your dad and I or go with Jack?"
She asked grabbing her car keys.
"We'll ride with Jack."
He said grabbing onto my hand.
"Okay, we'll see you there."
They left and shortly after we went to Jack's car.
"Ashley, I thought you might wanna see a friend so I invited Jessica , we're gonna go pick her up."
Jack said before I got into the car.
He nodded and we got in his car.
"You can sit in the front."
I told Luke, because he sat next to me in the back.
"I'll sit up there when we're at Jessica's"
I nodded, and the car started moving.
"So when are you guys leaving?"
Jack said glancing back at Luke.
"Wow, why only for three days?"
"Because we don't have anything scheduled. We have shows and interviews starting again on Monday."
Luke replied leaning against me.
"Oh, so are you going back with them Ashley?"
I looked over at Luke, and he just looked at me back with an unhappy face.
"No, I'm staying."
"I thought you were gonna be with them for awhile longer until you start college."
"Um yea, I was, but I have some things I need to do here."
He didn't reply after that, and when we got to Jessica's he got out, quickly moving to the front seat.
Jessica screamed getting into the car then gave me a big hug.
"I missed you!"
She said hugging me again.
"I missed you too."
"Oh sorry for being rude, hey Luke, hey Jack."
She said laughing.
Jessica's house is really close to the beach so it only took a couple minutes before we arrived.
Once out of the car I could see the others down by the water.
"So, I heard about you and Luke. About time."
I let out a small laugh.
"It seems everyone says that."
"Are you okay?"
"I think he's a bit upset with me."
She gave me a questioning look.
"I'm not going back with them tomorrow."
I didn't have a chance to answer her because we were interrupted.
My Mom said giving me a quick hug.
" hey mum."
I said giving her a quick kiss on the cheek.
I looked over to where Luke was. He was sitting in the sand away from everyone else,and the rest of the boys were messing around in the water.
"I'll be right back."
I told Jessica.
She nodded and I went over to Luke.
"Are you angry with me?"
"Of coarse Not. Come here."
He said reaching his hand out.
I grabbed it and he pulled me down next to him.
"I understand that you don't wanna come back with us. But your not a distraction. I want you around."
He leaned his head in, his forehead touching mine, and I put my hand on the back of his neck.
"I am a distraction. You and Ashton are best friends and ever since I came on tour with you, you two haven't been getting along.I don't wanna ruin things."
He slightly shook his head.
" I don't want to leave you here. What about Jacob? "
"I'll be fine. I don't think he's going to bother me anymore. But I won't be alone I promise I'll always be around someone."
He laid his head on my shoulder .
"He's fucking stupid, I'm sure he's gonna try to come around you again."
I lifted his face to mine and gently kisses him.
" I don't think so. Please don't worry about me. Now come on, let's go with everyone else."
He nodded and grabbed my hand after standing up.
Ashton said as we walked up, but I didn't reply.
He sighed and went down by the water with Michael.
My mom shook her dead and gave me a discouraging look.
I turned around and wrapped my arms around Luke's torso, my face against his chest.
I heard shuffling and voices coming from outside of the room.
I opened my eyes and Light showed through the cracks of the bedroom door.
I said quietly, and patted the spot on the bed next to me,But He wasn't there.
I got up and turned on the lights, making everything in the room more visible.
More noise came from the other room and I opened the door. Luke was standing there on his phone, his bags by the door, and his parents sitting on the couch.
"What time is it? Are you leaving already?"
I asked feeling my voice crack. I really don't want him to go.
He turned to me and put his phone in his pocket.
"Um yea, In a few minutes."
"Were you not gonna wake me? I want to say goodbye."
I said glancing down at the floor.
"I was just about to."
He pulled me into a hug, and I felt my heart sink in my chest. I don't know when they're gonna get a break again, so I don't know when I'm gonna see him next.
"I wanna go with to drop you off, and say bye to the boys."
"Are you sure? You don't have to, you can go back to sleep if you want."
"No, I wanna go."
He said kissing the top of my head.
I went back into the room and put on a pair of black leggings and a hoodie before we left to the airport.
Luke had his arm around me and laid his head against mine.
We didn't talk the whole ride, and when we got there, there were tons of fans waiting outside.
"I'll go wait inside and say bye to Michael, Calum and Ashton while you take pictures."
He nodded and I got out of the car.
I made my way through the crowd that was being held back my security guard and went inside.
Michael said coming up to me.
"Your mom told us you weren't coming."
Calum said standing next to Michael.
"We're Gonna miss you."
I gave Michael a hug then Calum.
"I'm gonna miss you idiots too."
They laughed and I turned around as Luke came up behind me.
"Where is Ashton?"
"He's already on the plane."
" oh. Can you tell him I love him."
They nodded then I turned back to Luke.
He looked at me for a couple seconds before pulling me into a tight hug.
"Call me when you get back to LA?"
I looked up at him and pulled his mouth to mine.
I whispered then reconnected our lips.
"Time to go."
I heard a security guard say behind me.
After a couple more seconds I pulled away.
He said letting go of me.
I watched as he picked up his bags, and then walked away.
