Falling for Hood -BEING EDITED-

Helen has just moved back to Australia after years of living in California. She is living with her brother, Luke Hemmings. Something Helen didn't know is that Luke has a friend, Calum Hood. They immediately become friends. But when they start falling for each other, will Luke accept it or will he want Calum to back off his little sister?

Luke's POV


I stood at the gate waiting for my mum. Everyone either had balloons or were holding signs that said 'Welcome Back!' or 'Welcome to Australia.' I spent the last of my money on that damn bow. But it's gonna be worth it. 

I saw my mum walk out of the airport, dragging some luggage. I jogged towards her, a huge smile on my face. She hugged me and I hugged back. 

"Oh, Lucas," She said. 

"Hi, mum," I said "Welcome back."

She pulled away, and wiped away tears. 

"Thank you, Luke. Now let's go home, I'm sick of living out of that luggage."

 I laughed and carried her bags. We walked towards my car and I put her bags in the trunk. 

"It feels so good to be home," She said. 

"It's good to have you back, mum."

We drove away from the airport parking lot. 


I pulled into the drive way and got out. I got the luggage out the trunk and followed Mum, towards the front door. She unlocked it and took a deep breath.

"Home sweet home," She said. I smiled. 

"Luke did you clean the house?" She asked surprised. 

"Yea! It was a hassle, how could you do it everyday?" I asked.

She laughed, and kissed my cheek, "Thank you Lucas. Now I am going to go put the bags upstairs."

I nodded and she walked up the flight of stairs. I quickly pulled out my phone and texted Ashton.

Me: You guys better be done wrapping, cause I am at the house.

He texted back almost immediatley.

Ashton: Yea we're done.

Me: Great, bring her over.

Ashton: Okay, and she doesn't even have a scratch from the knife.

Me: Knife? Scratch?!

Ashton: Well do you want her to suffocate in the box?!

Me: Point taken. Now hurry up!

Ashton: Yes, your Majesty.

I rolled my eyes at his text. I heard my mum's footsteps and put my phone back in my pocket. I sat on a kitchen chair. 

"So why didn't Helen come?" She asked. Sadness filled her eyes. I felt giddy inside.

"Oh, she was going to have a Going-Away party," I replied. 

"Your father probably isn't ready to let her go."

"I mean, he did raise her," I said. 

"So, what did you do while I was gone?" 

"Nothing. Just ate, played some FIFA, did some song writing, the usual." I said blankly. 

After a couple of minutes of talking about mum's trip, I heard the doorbell ring. 

"Its open!" I shouted.

Ashton opened the door, "Hello, Liz! We brought you a welcome back present."

Calum and Michael followed close behind, carrying a box, that I hope contains Helen. 

"Yea, you'll love it!" Calum said.

"Luke picked it out himself," Michael added. 

I snorted.

"Thank you boys," Mum said. 

Calum and Michael put the box down and all hugged my mum.

"Go ahead and open it, mum," I said.

"What is it?" She asked curiously. 

"You'll see," I reply. 

I took my phone out and started recording as my mum began tearing away the wrap, along with the big bow. 

"Why does it have a single piece of tape on it?" Mum asked. 

Just as she said that Helen jumped out of the box. My mum screamed. I got up and moved angle to get a better view with my phone. 

"Helen?!" Mum asked. 

Helen had tears in her eyes but nodded. They both hugged. Me and the guys let out a small cheer. 

"Oh my gosh! Luke said you were still in California!"

"I wanted to surprise you!" I said. 

"After years, I get to see my beautiful daughter."

"I missed you so much, Mom!" Helen sobbed. 

"I missed you too, sweetheart," Mum replied. 

I ended the video and put my phone back in my pocket. I went over and hugged the two most important women in my life. 

Ashton, Michael, and Calum followed. 

"You okay?" I asked my Mum and Helen. 

Helen nodded. And we all pulled apart. 

I smiled. "It's good to be back."


We spent the rest of the day catching up on things we missed in each other's lives. Like birthday parties and random stories. We played a few games and had dinner. It was such a great feeling to be surrounded by family. Especially with Calum, Michael, and Ash there, they are like brothers to me.

After they left at nine I went to bed. 

I lay there and thought to myself that things are going to be great and life itself is going to be great. 

And with a smile on my face, I eventually fell asleep.
