I woke up the next morning to see that I had a text message from Luke.
Good Morning Beautiful. I hope you slept well. come over to my house at around noon. cant wait to see you. xoxoxo
I will see you then !<3
I looked at the clock and nearly fainted when I saw that it was already 10:30. I sprinted into my bathroom and took possibly the fastest shower ever. I put my glasses on because I was too lazy to put my contacts in. I quickly but carefully applied all of my makeup on and walked into my closet to figure out what I was going to wear. I settled on a romper with pineapples on it and I got out a pair of matching sandals. When I was satisfied with my look, I ran downstairs. My family was already down there, except dad he was at work, I kissed my brother on the top of his head, and I went into the kitchen to chat with my mom.
"Good morning mommy," I said pouring some coffee in my favorite M&M mug.
"Hey sweetie. How'd you sleep?"
"Great. Well Luke from next door asked me to come over at around noon so after my coffee im going to go over there, okay?" I told my mom. I knew that she wouldn't mind because she wants me to make friends.
"Okay I will see you later," I gave her a hug and downed the rest of my coffee. I ran out the door and walked casually over to his front door. I raised my hand to knock but the door suddenly opened and I saw Luke, standing there, out of breath.
"Uhh, hi?" I said.
"Hi sorry I saw you coming," he said and I raised my eyebrows at him. "Not that I was sitting, looking out the window, waiting for you to come over. Nope that would be ......weird," I laughed because he started blushing and he smirked at me. He guided me into the house and I greeted his mom, Liz. She is quite possibly the sweetest lady I have ever met. Luke and I sat down on the couch and we just chatted about anything really.
"Hey Luke. Not that I don't like spending time with you, but why did you invite me over?" I asked nervously.
"Oh ya well I am kind of in a band and I wanted you to meet my mates. They are basically my brothers. I know that they will like you just as much as I do," then he muttered something like 'I sure hope they don't like you as much as I do' thinking that I didn't hear him. I giggled and blushed but then there was a knock at the door. He got up and when he opened the door there were many loud voices. Then I heard Luke speak up.
"Lads, there is someone here that I would like you to meet," he said leading them to where I was. I stood up and walked over to them. There were 3 boys besides Luke and they all smiled at me. The one with the curly brown hair and dimples came up to me first and stuck out his hand. I shook it and smiled back at him.
"Hello. I'm Ashton Irwin. You are very pretty," he said smiling. I blushed and Luke gave him a cold glare. Ashton backed off instantly and I wanted to laugh.
"Hi I am Natalie Carter,"
The next one came up he had really cool, colorful hair. I think me and him are going to be great friends.
"Hi. I am Michael Clifford and I like to think of myself as the most mature of the bunch," He says laughing.
"Natalie Carter. I have this feeling that you and I are going to be best friends," I said while shaking his hand.
"You have that feeling too?" he said with a huge smile. I nodded and before I knew it, I was being pulled into a hug from Michael. I smiled and hugged him back. I looked over at Luke and he looked jealous. Like he wanted to be the one hugging me. I shook it off and Michael and I separated. The last boy had nearly black hair and dark brown eyes. He looked like the funny one.
"The name's Hood. Calum Hood," He said making a serious face. I shook his hand and replied.
"Haha I'm Natalie and I can't keep a straight face for my life," I said smiling. They all smiled at me and I felt kind of awkward. I felt like they were deciding if I was "worthy" of them.
"I feel like you are going to fit in well here," Calum said flashing his big, toothy grin. I smiled and let out a breath I didn't even know I was holding in. We wnt and sat down on the couch as the boys were setting up Fifa. I am amazing at this game but im not going to let them know that.
"Hey can I play?" I asked innocently. They looked shocked but Michael handed me a controller. I scored sooo many goals on them and they had no idea what was going on. After I won, they all turned around and looked at me.
"What? I have a younger brother and I play with him. I am the competitive type so I definitely cant let him win," I said so matter of factly. They smiled and we sat there and talked for a while. They asked a lot of questions about America which I gladly answered. Even though Australia is great, I will always be a New York girl. I raved about all the stores and amazing restaurants. It was getting late and we were hungry so we ordered some pizza. When we were all full, the other boys left, leaving me and Luke. Alone. He looked like he wanted to ask me something because ehe was ruv=bbing his hand through his hair.
"Okay here goes nothing. Natalie, I know we just met and but I really like you and I was wondering If you would go on a date with me tomorrow?" I smiled and said yes. He looked very relieved and I kind of laughed. I got up and said goodbye to Luke and started walking home with a smile plastered on my face. Shit. I think I am falling for Luke Hemmings.
