I looked down at Luke in shock.
After about 30 seconds of silence, Luke's face began to falter. I realized that I hadn't answered yet and he was just kneeling there.
"Yes! Of course!" I said with tears streaming down my face. He stood up smiling and pulled my body into his, connecting our lips along the way. I pressed my hands onto his cheeks and deepened the kiss.
We released and smiled at each other. He wiped my tears off of my cheeks with his thumbs. I looked down as he slipped a beautiful diamond engagement ring onto my finger.
"100% yes," I whispered as I closed the remaining space between us. He immediately kissed back and smiled into the kiss.
"Well I think there are a few certain people that want to see us," he said with a chuckle. I laughed thinking about how the boys are going to react. I nodded and we walked out to the car and drove home with our hands intertwined.
We pulled up to my house and I saw 5 faces in the front window. I giggled as they disappeared behind the curtain. Luke and I walked Into the house and they were all casually sitting on the couch, not doing anything. They didn't look up until I said something.
"Uh hey guys? What is up?" I asked very skeptically. They looked at my left hand and then at each other. Before I knew it, The shot up like cannons, besides Ashlyn of course it took her some difficulty. They all ran over and bombarded us with questions and hugs.
"Luke man! You have finally grown a pair of balls and asked her to marry you!!" Ashton said patting his back.
"Luke im so happy for you man," Michael said patting his back. Ashton nodded along with Michael. We all looked over to Calum who looked like he was pouting.
"Cal baby, what is wrong?" I asked in a baby voice. He looked up at us with his big brown eyes.
"There is no Cake anymore," he said looking down. I laughed as Luke put his arms around Calum's shoulders.
"Cake is forever man," he said making Calum smile.
Wow. we are all growing up.
Cal and Ash are expecting a baby girl.
Luke and I are getting married.
Michael and Ashton have met some girls that they promised to introduce to us.
And the band is getting really big.
"Um okay well us guys have something to tell you guys," Luke started," Well, we got this offer to go on tour," he said. I got nervous and excited at the same time.
"Contine..." i said. He took a deep breath.
"We were offered to go on a year long world-wide tour with One Direction. We open for them," he said looking down afraid of ehat I was gonna say.
"Luke. That is great!" I said and I hugged him.
"The best part is that we can each bring one person of our choosing," he said giving me a kiss.
"Do you think my mom would want to go with me?" he joked. I playfully smacked him.
"There is no way I would miss this for the world," I said with a smile looking up at him.
"It's not fair!" Michael said," Cal technically gets to bring 2 people with him," Michael joked.
Calum wrapped his arm around Ashlyn.
"That is just because I am better than you," he gloated.
"And because you couldnt keep it in your pants," Ashton said causing us all to laugh and Ashlyn to blush.
We all sat around talking about this long tour but Ashlyn seems uneasy.
"Hey Ash? Do you wanna come into the kitchen and help me get drinks?" she nodded and I grabbed her hands, pulling her up off the couch. The boys started a game of Fifa so they were pretty distracted by the tele.
"So what is going on with you? How do you feel about this whole tour thing?" I asked her while handing her a large glass of lemonade.
"Well obviously I am very happy for them but I am very nervous. I am 6 months pregnant. In about 3 months, there will be a baby to care for, and he or she will have to be on the road for a while. Calum won't really be around because he will be performing every night so I will be alone with a screaming baby because I know that you aren't going to want to miss Luke's shows," she cried. I wrapped my arms around her.
"Don't worry Ash. You won't be alone. I know how to play the bass so I can always cover some of his shows. I bet it would be fun to be up there with them and Calum would not want to miss a mintue of his child's life," I said reassuringly. She smiled and hugged me again.
"Thanks Nat. I have no idea what I would do without you," I smiled and we ventured back into the living room. Ashton and Michael were vigourously moving their thumbs on the controlers and every now and then shouting a cuss word. They get very intense when they are gaming.
I sat next to Luke and Ashlyn sat next to Calum.
Luke Looked down at me and i looked up at him, giving the huge height difference< and we voth smiled. His eyes wandered down to my lips then back to my eyes. I laughed and kissed him which turned into a make-out session.
"Hey Nat don't eat his face off we sort of need our lead singer," Ashton joked. I blushed and hid my face into Lukes shoulder. He laughed and I sort of exposed my face. Luke picked up my left hand and kissed my ring finger.
"I can't wait to call you my wife," he whispered in my ear.
"And I can't wait to become Natalie Rose Hemmings," I whispered back.
"That has a great ring to it," he whispered back. I closed my tired eyes and fell asleep to Luke's sft hums in my ear.
(1 week later)
Today is the day that we head to London to meet up with the One Direction lads.
We are all pretty excited but exhausted because we all stayed up all night so we could sleep on the long flight. When we got to the airport, we were mobbed by fans. They signed some autographs and Ashlyn went inside so I just stood there alone until I heard my name being called. I turned around to see a group of about 4 girls.
"You are Natalie Carter? Luke's girlfriend, right?" one of them asked. I smiled.
"Yep that is me,"
"Uh can we get a picture with you?" I was shocked but took a few cute and silly pictures with them. I followed them all on twitter and said my good-byes. Right before I walked away, one came up to me.
"I think you and Luke are perfect. Don't listen to those jealous bitches who are trying to get you down. Don't give them the satisfaction," she said and walked away leaving me there smiling. Luke came over and I told him about the girls and he smiled and grabbed my hand. All the girls went crazy and there were so many cameras flashing. We walked into the airport and were escorted into the 'private sector'.
The One direction guys sent a private jet for us so I was able to bring Frolic along with us. I couldn't leave my puppy for a whole year!
We got on the plane and I cuddled into Luke's body. Frolic was sleeping in a ball in Luke's lap and i fell asleep with my head on my new fiance's shoulder.
