5. chapter 5
"So I have a question." Luke said to me. We were sitting on a bench outside the ice cream shop enjoying our frozen treats. "And whats that?" I said scooping ice cream into my mouth. "So I have kinda took notice that you have a bit of an accent. You're not from Australia are you?" He said to me. "Nope. I'm from America I moved here when I was 13 years old for my dad his job got transferred here." "I knew I heard some American in you. So tell me more." "More what?" I asked confused. "I don't more about you." He said lightly bumping my elbow. "Well I have a mom and a dad and three younger brothers. We live in a house I go to school and that's about it." He just laughed at me. "That's all I get." He said "their has to be more to you." He added. I didn't know what else to say my life was pretty boring. I went to school studied all the time. "I don't know I guess I play a little guitar and like to sing." His eyes lite up. "Oh really well so do I." "I kinda I figured that considering you are in this world famous band and everything." I teased. "How about you tell me about you." I added. "Well what do you want to know?" "Everything." I said up him. "Wow everything. Huh. Where do I start. Well I have a mom and dad, another thing we both have in common but I only have two younger brothers." He told me. "That's all I get." I said mimicking him. "Well what else do you want To know?" He asked me. "Tell me about your band." "Ahhhh those guys. Well it started out me posting this covers of me singing and playing guitar on YouTube. Well people at my school found out. Then Calum and Michael joined me on this excitement as we posted horrendous covers of songs up. We booked a few gigs and for one show we needed a drummer. Michael knew Ashton he message him over Facebook and after the gig we became a band."
We sat their at that bench for hours. Four hours to be exact. We talked about everything. How he ended up touring with One Direction and all his crazy memories and stories. All the celebrities he got to meet while making an album how he was in the process of writing songs for the bands first actual album. He apologized a bunch of times because he felt like he was bragging and rambling and talking all about himself but I didn't care. I liked the sound of his voice and the excitement he got talking all about it. I noticed my chin was in the palm of my hand just staring into his eyes. They were memorizing. I found myself telling him about my family and future. He was impressed when I told him about my road to Harvard University. How my dad and I always wanted me to go their and how all I needed to do to get in was have a great summer internship and I could get into the honors program and how my family is going to be moving back to America 5 months after I go off to college. It was amazing having someone their to listen to me as I blabbed on about the boring details of my life. I looked down at my watch and noticed the time. It was 10:15.
"Oh my it's 10:15!" I said. I quickly checked my phone. 10 missed calls and 27 texts from just my dad. I hadn't checked my phone the entire time I was too bush listening to Luke to even care. "I think I have to get going now." I said. I didn't want to go but I had to my dad was going to kill me. "Oh alright let me walk you to your car." He said. Unfortunately my car was only about 10 feet away. I wanted more time with Luke I didn't want to leave I was actually really enjoying myself . "So were doing this again right?" Luke peeped up and said, "only if you want to." "I would absolutely love to." I said blushing at him. "Thanks for everything." I added. He bent down To my level to kiss me on the cheek. "You missed." I said to him. He looked confused. "What do you mea...?" He said as I pulled him in and kissed him. "Good night Luke." I said getting into my car. I pulled out and looked into my rear view mirror to see Luke leaning back on his car smiling. What a sight to see.
