I woke up alone. Luke wasn't next to me. I sat up and looked around the room. He left. I laid back down and turned the tv on. I was watching spongebob (the only thing on) when the door opened and Luke came in with a bag from McDonalds.
"I got breakfast," he said. All I could do was smile at him. I thought he left, but he went out and got us breakfast. He's so adorable. "I hope you like pancakes," he said with a grin.
"I do," I said giggling.
"Oh, Hope and Calum are coming up. They should be here soon." He said. I then realized I hadn't seen Hope since I was at Luke's house.
I moved over on the bed and Luke sat down and handed me my food. We were eating and Luke got a confused look on his face. He turned around and started laughing.
"What?" I said.
"Your watching spongebob?" He said giggling.
"Ya. Okay nothing else was on!" I said starting to giggle too.
Calum and Hope walked in so quietly I didn't hear them. I guess they just saw us giggling because Calum said, "You guys are so cute."
Hope came over and hugged me and Luke got up to talk to Calum. We had already finished our food and we had McDonalds trash all over the bed.
Luke cleaned it all up sat down right next to me. Hope sat on Calum's lap on the extra chair. We were all talking when the doctor came in. Everyone sat up straight. Luke got up and was talking to the doctor. I couldn't make out what they were saying. Luke came back over and began to pack up my stuff.
"Time to go," he said. I got up and walked over to him. My mom had left some clothes to change into so I grabbed them and went into the bathroom.
I changed into my vans, jeans, and a black sweatshirt. His sweatshirt. I haven't gave it back yet from the accident with Zayn.
I walked out of the bathroom and I could see Luke looking at the shirt. "Luke-"
"It's fine, you look better in it than I did,"
Wow. He's never mad. I went to grab my stuff but Luke grabbed it before me. He smiled at me and wrapped his arm around my shoulders, and I wrapped my arm around his waist.
"Come on, let's go," he said with a wink. I giggled and we left the room. We were walking a little bit behind Hope and Calum. Just enough to not be able to hear them. They said something to each other then Calum grabbed Hope's hand and kissed her on the cheek.
"They're pretty cute," Luke said.
"We're pretty cute,"
"You're pretty cute," he said while slowing down noticing I stumbled a little. We just looked at each other and smiled. He makes me so happy.
Hope and Calum had drifted off further in front of us. When we rounded a corner, they had been coming toward us.
"The elevator's broke down, we have to take the stairs," Hope said looking at me.
"Are you going to be okay? We can wait it out," Calum said. Everyone was looking at me.
"N-No I'll go," I said.
"Ashley, are you sure?" Luke said with a touch of concern in his voice.
"Okay, let's go," Hope said as she and Calum locked hands and went. We walked a little bit slower than Hope and Calum due to the fact that I was in a car accident yesterday and am stumbling a little. I released from Luke's side and began to walk down the stairs. We were on the sixth floor and I didn't start stumbling until we were on the second or third floor.
I tripped on one of the steps and I felt hands on my waist.
"It's okay, I've got you," Luke said in my ear. We continued walking and Luke noticed my stumbles because he said, "Ashley, all you have to do is tell me and I can help," I simply said yes by shaking my head. He stepped in front of me and motioned for me to get on his back.
"Luke you'll-" I tried.
"It's okay. I'll do it for you," he said looking back at me. I got on his back and he carried me down the stairs. I rested my head on his shoulder and kissed his cheek. I could see him smile.
"I love you," he said.
"I love you, too," I said. I took a second to realize what I just said. Things are happening so fast. Ever since I met Luke, I've been getting hurt. Do I really love him? Does he really love me?
We got to the end of the stairs and Luke set me down. He was looking straight into my eyes and I just turned away.
"Ashley, what's going on?" He asked.
I turned to him. "This is all happening so fast," I said looking him in the eyes.
"Oh," was all he said.
"I'm sorry, I just-" I excused myself and walked outside with Luke following. He caught up to me and walked next to me. He walked up to a small white car, opened the door and walked to other side and got in. I got in the side with the opened door and was surprised to see Calum in the drivers seat and Hope in the passengers.
"Hey guys," Calum said. Luke just looked out the window and I looked at Luke then my hands.
"Okay.." Hope said awkwardly and they turned back around. Calum started driving and I looked over at Luke. He was still looking out the window and I felt awkward. Calum stopped at a stoplight.
"So, where exactly am I taking you guys?" Calum asked.
"Home," I said.
"Where's home?" He asked.
"Home is where your comfortable in your surroundings. Where your with the ones you love." Hope said looking into Calum's eyes.
"Then take me wherever Luke's going," I said looking over at Luke. He turned to face me.
"Your house?" He asked.
"My house it is," I said still looking into his eyes. Calum started driving again. Luke bit his lip ring and held my hand.
"I can slow things down for you if you want," he said.
"No. I like this speed," I said smiling, "sorry about what I said earlier,"
"Am I going to fast?" Calum asked slowing down. Luke and I giggled for a little bit before Luke answered.
"Perfectly fine Cal," he said still giggling.
Calum pulled into the driveway and put the car in park.
"Have fun," he said with a wink. Luke shook his head and got out of the car. I opened my door and got out. Luke got my bag and walked over to me as Calum drove away. He put his arm around my waist and we walked up to the door. I opened the door to find my parents sitting in the living room.
"Ashley?" My mom asked.
"Who's this?" My dad asked.
"Uh, Ashley..." Luke said.
