16. The last day
I have to admit, the campfire was pretty cool. We played music, everybody sang together, we burned marshmellows,... Yeah, it was cool. And it became a very long night. You could go to bed when you wanted. The younger kids went to bed quiet early, but ofcourse everyone else stayed up all night. The parents slept in a camp site a bit further so they don't have to go home and then come back again. Luckily, Luke, Ashton and Calum are from Sydney as well. That is very easy to keep in contact and to keep making music together. We definetely will. When it was time for breakfast, we went to the Great Hall (we literally didn't sleep a second). "Dude, do you ever go to parties?" I asked Ashton; he was literally falling asleep on the table. "Huh, what?" "I said, do you ever go to parties?" "Sure, why?" Ashton said sleepy. "You're apparently not used to staying up all night, are you?" I asked; Luke and Calum laughed. "Whatever." "No, not whatever. You're almost an adult. Back in Sydney, we're going to a fiew parties." "But..." "Don't even dare. And you are coming with us." I said; pointing at Luke and Calum. "Yes, sir." Luke and Calum said in sync. which made us laugh. At the airport, I said goodbye to Liz. "So..." Liz began. "So... Are we still going to see eachother again?" I asked; I just had to know. "I don't know, Michael. My life is quiet unpredictable. And I think your life will be different from now on." "What do you mean?" Why do girls always have to talk in riddels? "Your band. Who knows how famous you'll be in a couple of months, maybe a couple of years?" "So what? I don't want our friendship to end. Maybe we can still write eachother?" "Maybe." I wanted to argue, to promise her to write me or whatever, but I knew it wouldn't help. She is one of those girls who is... unpredictable. Perhaps that's what I like about her.
At the airport, my nightmare from a month ago, came true. Alyss was crying and I had tears in my eyes, I fought so hard to stop them. "What will happen to us now?" I asked; my voice cracked. Great. "I... I don't know Luke. I love you, more than anything and I know you love me too. But I don't know. I don't know if I'll be emotionally strong enough for a long distance relationship..." She said crying; then she kissed me passionly. "So... We break up then?" I asked; letting the tears fall without any shame. "I can't do this, Luke. I love you. I love you so much, but I can't do this. I'm sorry." She kissed my cheek and went to her parents; letting me standing there crying. "You buddy, wow. What happened dude?" Asked Ashton; Calum and Michael joined us. But I couldn't say anything. Half of my heart was ripped out of my body. Calum was the first one to realise what happened and he hugged. I was still crying and I didn't give a damn about it. "We're here for you, mate." "I know." I managed to say. We went to the plane, our family following behind. Luckily, my brother was smart enough not to joke about me crying right now. At the airport in Sydney, the boys and I exchanged Phone numbers. Then, we all went home. Heartbreak or not, this was the definetely the best summer ever.
