Elle's pov

When I wake, I'm snuggled into Luke's chest and his arms are wrapped around me. I squirm a bit, trying not to wake him up as I stretch my limbs. For the first time in a long time, I've got some sleep and being with Luke made me feel safe.

My mind was racing as I started to think, recalling the events of last night. My heart suddenly dropped... I said that I loved Luke. That can't be right, though. I've thought about this possibility before the accident, as I'm calling it. But, now that he's broken my heart, I can't possibly love him, right?

Without warning, my stomach loudly rumbled, begging for food because I haven't eaten in days. As discreetly as I could, I attempted to climb out of the bed, but his arms tightened around me.

"Where are you going?" Luke mumbled groggily.

"To get food," I whined, pushing him away. At that, he seemed to perk up, almost excited that I wanted to eat.

"C'mon!" He said, grabbing my hand and dragging me off the bed and to the kitchen where we both got out the ingredients to make pancakes.

After eating almost two pancakes, my stomach was stuffed. Meanwhile, Luke has eaten like twenty.

"Oh my gosh!" I giggled, watching him shoved more pancake into his mouth. "It's like you haven't eaten in forever!"

"I sorta haven't," he shrugged, finishing the last one. My eyes were glued to him, my mind trying to figure out what he meant.

As I was about to question him, my phone buzzed, signaling that I got a text. I grabbed my phone and read the message from Rosie.

Rosie: is all okay? They said Luke came over last night?

I smiled gently at the screen, before I remembered that I had to reply.

Elle: everything's good now :-))

I closed my phone, setting it down, when Luke asked, "Is everything okay?"

I nodded and told him that it was just Rosie texting me. "Wait! Did they go on a date?" I just remembered that. I need the details! I quickly texted Rosie, ignoring that Luke was laughing at me for being so excited.

Putting my phone down for the second time, I got up to put the dishes in the sink, lazily humming a random tune as I did so.

A little later, we ended up on the couch, watching some kind of movie that was on. Rosie texted back before that she'd fill me in on everything later, meaning that she'd need to call or come over. My head was resting on Luke's shoulder when he popped up energetically, his eyes filling with excitement.

"I've got to show you my song!" He eagerly said, grabbing my hand and pulling me off he couch.

"Okay!" I laughed. "But you got to let me change out of my pajamas." He nodded as response, while I ran to my room to throw on a pair of high waisted denim shorts and a black vans baseball tee along with my black vans.

I run back out after throwing my hair up in a ponytail and putting on just a bit of mascara and concealer to make my face not look as bad as it does. "Ready!" I call out to Luke as he gets off the couch and grabs my hand, pulling me down the hallway and into the elevator.

We casually walk to Ash's house, which is where they always seem to be. It's quiet between us both, but nothing awkward, there's just nothing left to say at the moment.

When we got to the door, we just walked right in and I jumped as Luke yelled, "Hi we're home!"

I squeaked a bit when he shouted, not expecting the sudden loud noise. "Scared?" He chuckled, my face heating up. I giggled along not really knowing how to reply.

Both of us walked into the living room, and were both tackled by many hugs and questions.

"So you guys are all good now?"

"Thank god you both lived!"

"Yes! Date already! Otp!"

"And they fight through it!"

We both laughed awkwardly waiting for them to quiet down. After a minute, they all sit back down, returning to video games and conversations. Before she took a seat, Rosie gave me a happy smile. I quickly noticed that Ashton's arm wrapped around her shoulder when she sat next to him. They honestly look so cute with each other.

Luke then took my hand again and I followed him downstairs. "This is where all of our music stuff is so, uh, I'll show you the song down here," he says as we walk. I sit down of the couch and watch him intently as he sets everything up.

I realized that I liked the way his forehead scrunched up as he tuned his guitar and the way he looked so content while sitting with his instruments. While I waited, I started to think about what I said last night. Do I actually love him? I mean I did say it first...

"Okay, ready," he says, catching me from my thoughts.

"Okay," I smiled in return. Luke starts to strum the first few cords and sing.

"That's what I like about you

You hold me tight

Tell me I'm the only one

Wanna come over tonight?


I immediately started to smile. He wrote this song for me. Luke wrote a song about me. I had this stupid grin on my face as I continued to listen.

I noticed the way he sings with such emotion. He was beautiful to watch, it was like he was captured by the music, like he was in a whole different world without any of these problems.

I loved the way that he bit his lip while strumming and the way he moved his head while singing. His voice was like an angels and all these things sent sparks through my body and I felt giddy inside.

My heart was melting at the lyrics.

And then I thought, maybe this is what love feels like.
