The next day I still wasn't invited to the studio but Luke promised him and I would spend some alone time together and then the next day we would be able to go exploring. Today I didn't dance fearful that the guys might bring someone else home. After a whole day of being alone the guys finally came home. Michael, Ashton, and Calum were going to clubbing again and I asked Luke if he wanted to go as well but he said he would much rather spend a little alone time with me than going out. We popped in a movie and he was laying on the couch as I made popcorn. "Hurry up you're taking foreverrrr" he whined as I threw popcorn at him. I snuggled in with him as he hit play. We were laying their for a moment when he spoke up, "thank you for coming with me." "Thank you for bringing me." "Having you here is so much better." He kissed my cheek. "How did you really convince my dad to let me come?" "I told you I used my charm." I laughed, "no really, what did you say to make him go from crazy angry man to thinking you are some respectful gentleman?" He paused for a moment looking me in the eyes and smiling "I told him how much you meant to me. I told him about how I feel for you the first time I meet you and how nervous you made me and how when I saw you a second time I was so excited to talk to you and how you blew me off and I was devastated and how happy I was when you started to fall for me and how seeing you sad breaks my heart and how I couldn't live two weeks without you and how you inspire me in so many ways and how perfect you are." My eyes began to tear up a bit and I pulled him in a kissed him. We were laying their making out my chest I his feeling his heartbeat completely ignoring the movie until I heard a classic song that I loved. "I love this song. Let's dance!" I said jumping up and pulling him up off the couch and into my arms as we slow danced our heartbeats beating in time with the music. I made you something he whispered in my ear pulling put of his pocket a mix tape. I looked at it all some of the most perfect music, "oh my gosh I love it." I said looking into his piercing blue eyes that shined bright through the dark. "Thanks I was inspired by you and the year 1994 came to my mind. Some great songs came from that year and I thought I might make one for you giving you a piece of my mind." After staring at each other for a moment I slipped out "I love you." And that was the first time I said that to anyone guy, but it was true I loved him. His eyes grew bright and a huge smile appeared on his face as his whispered in my ear, "I love you more than you could even imagine." Pulling my real close kissing me. With the music still playing in the background Luke and I began extra close and I felt myself let go and melt into his arms. I began to grab his necklace that dangled from his neck and pulled him down the hallway to our back bedroom. In that moment I felt love between us, sparks flying, real true passion and I began to take his clothes off and he took mine off and we moved to his bed. In that moment we did what my dad feared we would do at first when we went to London together. Was it too soon? Giving myself all up to him. Yes it was, I loved Luke and I could feel he loved me too.
I woke up tangled in his body my phone ringing. I reached on the flooring looking for something to put on. I grabbed a tshirt which ended up being Luke's and pair of what I thought was shorts but were Luke's boxer underwear. My dad was calling me so I had no time to change into something decent as I quietly answered the phone not trying to wake Luke. "Hello." I said into the phone having my dad yell back, "Why is their a picture of you and Luke eating each other's faces in a night club with you in a slutty dress. Vanessa you said I could trust you if I sent you to another country." I froze as I didn't know what to say, "what do you mean?" I said acting like I had no clue what was saying. "Well I was checking the American news online and on the side were those dumb TMZ ads and one of them was a picture of my daughter making out with her boyfriend in a club and another one with her and bunch of older guys drinking!" I ran over to the laptop and pulled up the TMZ website finding the exact pictures my dad was talking about seeing the headline "Luke's new flame." Pictures of us from our date to us in London to even pictures of us in our hometown and a whole article of who am I as where did I come from. I googled Luke Hemmings and all the articles were about his secret girlfriend and how fans are dying to know who I am. Their were so many negative comments about how I already went to London with him, people think this is us moving here, and how were too young to be this close so fast. After calming my dad on the phone and apologizing for what he see's and lying saying I promise I wasn't drinking he finally calmed down a bit.
I began to pace around the room frustrated about what I saw. After hanging up with my dad I looked more on what people were saying about me and looking on twitter could which had now hit over 100,000 followers. As I was packing around the room trying to hold back the tears from all the negative comments I got Luke began to wake up. "Wow you look perfect. Love your look." He said sitting up as I paced around the room still. I stopped at looked at him in the eyes as I felt myself begin to cry and he jumped out of bed and to me, "Vanessa whats wrong." He said slightly holding me. "My dad called articles about us are being posted and they are saying bad things about this relationship and I just don't know if I right for you Luke you can do so much better than me." Luke stopped me right then and their, "Vanessa who gives a rats ass what the people say. I love you, look how far we've come in sub a short amount of time. You are do perfect to me just look at you. I never though anyone could rock my underwear and tshirt. I don't care what anyone says I want you and no one could possibly be better than you. This is going to be hard, really hard. I think my fans are amazing but they are going to try to take me from you and I won't let that ever happen. I promise anything they say is wrong and I know paparazzi are going to follow us around and try to ruin us as well but I love you too much right now to ever let that ruin us." I began to cry, not tears of sadness or anger but from happiness. Luke could honestly turn any shitty situation into a good one and it made me get butterflies in my stomach.
After Luke calming me down a bit I played his mixtape in the room as danced around as we got ready. I knew the paparazzi were going to be out along with the fans so I decided to dress up a bit to rub it in their face a but that I know you don't think I'm good enough but I know I am. Luke's mixtape was perfect, each song amazing and beautiful and making me feel all warm inside.
I was right paparazzi and fans were everywhere. The guys had to take time to take some pictures with them and to my surprise fans even wanted pictures with me. I defiantly couldn't say all Luke's fans hated me because a bunch were sending praises my way telling me how beautiful I was and how sweet and kind I was. London was beautiful and very romantic. All though we had people swarming around us all day it was still a wonderful experience. London was beautiful at night and very romantic. We all went out to dinner together and went to an All Time Low show that night. They were incredible live. It was perfect listening to one of my favorite bands perform live for the first time and being held in Luke's arms. Nothing could be more perfect. After the show we all got a bit drunk and ended up crashing at the guys place on their couches and on the floor.
The rest of our time in London was beautiful. I got to go back to the studio a few times. Apparently Luke was writing some really good pieces of work which he told me the reason I wasn't invited was because he didn't want me to hear them just yet. We spent more time with different writers including John Feldmann who was a creative genius. Nights were spent partying, hanging out, and a few nights where Luke and I had some "free time" ;).
Before we left the guys actually finished one song. Luke wrote it apparently really fast, about a day, and they wanted to perform it for me and everyone after they recorded it.
"Heyyyyyy heyyyyy" it started out
"Simmer down, simmer down
They say we're too young now to amount to anything else
But look around
We work too damn hard for this just to give it up now
If you don't swim, you'll drown
But don't move, honey
You look so perfect standing there
In my American Apparel underwear And I know now, that I'm so down Your lipstick stain is a work of art
I got your name tattooed in an arrow heart And I know now, that I'm so down Hey, hey!
Let's get out, let's get out
'Cause this deadbeat town's only here just to keep us down
While I was out, I found myself alone just thinking
If I showed up with a plane ticket
And a shiny diamond ring with your name on it
Would you wanna run away too?
'Cause all I really want is you
You look so perfect standing there
In my American Apparel underwear
And I know now, that I'm so down
I made a mixtape straight out of '94
I've got your ripped skinny jeans lying on the floor
And I know now, that I'm so down
You look so perfect standing there
In my American Apparel underwear And I know now, that I'm so down Your lipstick stain is a work of art I got your name tattooed in an arrow heart And I know now, that I'm so down You look so perfect standing there In my American Apparel underwear And I know now, that I'm so down Your lipstick stain is a work of art. I got your name tattooed in an arrow heart. And I know now, that I'm so down"
It was so perfect and beautiful and I held Luke so tight afterwards. I couldn't believe he wrote that song about us and everything that happened. Mixtapes about me, songs about me, bringing me to London, I honestly couldn't ask for a more perfect guy.
Leaving was so difficult. I didn't want to go back the reality of school and my home. I had the best time in London and meet some really incredible people and made so many unforgettable memories and I even fell in love. At least I got to bring the love back with me.
