I peaked my head out I my door to make sure nobody was in the hallway. It was clear so I crept towards the stairs to see if I could hear if everyone was down stairs. I heard Liz and my dad chatting, but no Luke. I peered though the railings and was able to see into the living room. I could just see the back of Luke's hair behind the sofa. He was watching tv.
I went back along the hallway and slowly entered Luke's bedroom. As soon as I entered my heart began to race. I had no idea what I was going to do or say if I got caught being in there.
I tip toed over to his computer desk and shook the mouse a little. The screen came onto his Facebook page. I typed 'Ashton' into the search bar and the first name that came up was 'Ashton Irwin'. I clicked on his information and found a phone number, quickly I added it to my contacts and took the page back to his news feed.
Just as I was about to leave I herd footsteps coming up the stairs. I started to panic. They were coming closer. It must have been Luke. I scurried under the bed and backed right up towards the wall. It went silent for a while. Then I hear a faint chap.
"Hey Anna, uh... Oh."
'Shit! He's seen in not in my room!'
Then his door swung open and I saw two pairs of black converse stroll in, the left one closing the door behind. The height under the bed got lower as Luke jumped on it. I laid flat on the ground, holding my breath.
Around 5 minuets passed. All I could hear was the tapping noise from Luke's phone. I was stuck under there praying to god that my phone doesn't go off or Luke comes under the bed to grab one of his porn mags that laid 'hidden' under the bed with me.
"Luke, Anna, come get some lunch!" I heard Liz call from down stairs. Immediately Luke jumped up and skipped out of his room. I waited around 30 seconds before I rolled out and bolted for the door.
'Phew! I'm out.'
I walked unsuspisously down stairs and joined the rest for some burgers and chips.
"Where were you?" Luke asked as I entered the kitchen.
"I was...having a quick shower." I lied. Luke knew I lied. I could see it in his face. But he did say anything. But my dad and Liz were non the wiser.
"Well I hope your cheered up, what was wrong with you yesterday?" Liz asked with concern. Luke looked at me with a hint fear in his eyes.
"I just missed my mum and...watching a sad movie made me think about her." I lied again, looking down the whole time. "I get emotional pretty easily. Anyway I phoned my mum and spoke to her for a while, I'm fine now." Most of that was true, except for the 'fine' part.
"Oh, I get like that too. My oldest son and my husband are away on some business trip and Lukey and I miss them so much. Don't we love?" Luke just nodded.
I stared at him, he brought his eyes to me, but I didn't break my stare. He looked away nervously, I intimidated. He was right, it did feel good being the dominant one.
"Okay here we go" Liz broke my stare by placing my meal in front of me.
Liz and my Dad spoke throughout the meal but Luke and I didn't say a word. The tension between us grew stronger with every minuet. Occasionally he look would look up at me and I would meet his glance. The tension was not sexual like it use to be. The stare was not for lust. This was a whole different kind of tension, the one like two dogs between a bone. Both of us wanted to be the one in power.
As soon as I finished I politely excused myself and went up to my room. I jumped on my bed and brought out my mobile. I created a new message to 'Ashton Irwin';
'Hey Ashton it's Anna x'
It only took about 10 seconds to get a reply.
'Hey, what's up? How'd you get my number :) xxxx'
'I found it on your Facebook, I needed to talk to you xxx'
'Sweet! I'm here for you xxxx'
'Well I was wandering if we could meet up tomorrow or sometime this week? I kinda need a tour guid to take me round Sydney and Luke won't do it :/ so would you? Xxxx'
'Definitely I'd be honored to take you out! I can come round tomorrow at around 10 xxxx'
'Thats great but I think it would be better if we met up, Luke's kinda pissed at me xxxx'
'Whys he pissed? I hope he's not being a dick to you xxxx'
'Haha I don't know why he's just being stubborn xxxx'
'Sound like him, well I can meet you at the corner of the street? :) xxxx'
'Thank you that would be great :) xxxx'
'Sweet! I look forward to seeing you xxxx'
'You too xxxx'
I put my phone down and smiled widely to myself. Ashton was such a nice guy from the start. I couldn't wait to see him the next day.
