"Ashley..... Ashley wake up..... Ashley" I heard Luke's soft voice whispering. I opened my eyes to see Luke next to me slightly shaking me awake.
"Morning sunshine," he said with a grin.
"Luke what time is it?" I asked tiredly.
"7:00" he said.
"Why are you waking me up this early?!?!?" I whisper-yelled.
"Babe, we have school," he said softly.
School. School. Today is Monday.
I got up quick and realized I was at Luke's house. I looked around at his clothes then at him.
"What am I going to wear?" I asked, "I don't want to go back home."
"I know. Top drawer to that cabinet," he said pointing to a cabinet. I opened the drawer to find black leggings and a blue shirt that said "Whatever".
"Luke, are- are these mine?" I asked recognizing the clothes.
"Ya. When you were knocked out my mom cleaned them but forgot to return them, so I kept them. Just in case," he said.
I smiled, grabbed the clothes and changed in the bathroom. I washed up my face and found a comb to brush my hair out. I walked out to see a shirtless Luke buckling his pants. He turned around and looked at me.
"Were- were you-" he stuttered.
"I didn't see anything," I said giggling. He pulled me in for a kiss before grabbing a shirt out of random and putting it on.
"Luke?" I asked sitting on his bed watching him try to find his cologne.
"Yes?" He asked back.
"How are we getting to school?" I asked. He turned to face me.
"Well," he said thinking, "put on your shoes let go!" He said suddenly rushing. I did so and followed him downstairs. He ran outside and stood still.
"Good-ole fashioned bus ride," he said just as the bus pulled up. The doors swung open and Luke walked up the steps, me following.
"Wait," the bus driver said.
"Mary, Mary, Mary," Luke said fake laughing.
"She got a bus pass?" Mary asked.
"Who needs a bus pass?" Luke said jokingly.
"I do," Mary said.
"Mary," Luke said getting more serious, "I've had a tough weekend, okay? I got a girlfriend then almost killed her. Got her back and almost lost her. Mary, come on!" He pleaded.
She sighed, "I cover for you too much Luke," she said closing the bus door.
"Thanks Mary! I owe you one!" He said walking toward the back of the bus.
"You owe me a lot," she said starting to drive. Luke found an empty seat and sat with me next to him. The bus ride was short and soon we were at school.
I didn't have makeup at Luke's to cover up the cuts and bruises on my face from the wreck. I was getting a lot of looks so I hid my face into Luke's arm. He noticed and grabbed my hand.
"Don't worry. You're beautiful," he said kissing my lips as we walked up to the school. We got a bunch of "awe"s and stuff but we ignored them.
School went by fast and before I knew it, it was 7th hour, 15 minutes till the bell rings. We were all sitting listening to Mrs. Waters' boring assessment. The phone rang. She walked up and answered it.
"Hello.... Yes.... Yes he's in my room..... You most certainly can.... Okay bye,"
"Luke, office," she said and I immediately shot Luke a look. He got up and went to the office.
5 minutes later he came back. We were all packing up our stuff and getting ready to leave.
"What did you do?" I asked curiously.
"Nothing, just a reminder that my mom is picking us up," he said grinning.
The bell rang and he immediately grabbed my hand and ran of.
We were outside waiting for Liz, Luke's mom, and Luke looked at me.
"What?" I asked smiling awkwardly. He cupped my face and smashed our lips together. Fireworks were going of rapidly. Sparks everywhere. This is it. This is love. When we released and he smiled at me.
"You don't know how hard it is to look at those lips all day and not be able to kiss them." He said smiling.
"Let's go love birds!" We looked over to see Liz waiting in the car. We got up and got in the backseat of the car. The car ride was slow and awkward.
When we got to Luke's house, we got out of the car and quickly went up to his room. We were sitting there when he just up asked, "Do want anything to eat? Or drink?"
"No thanks," I said.
"Well, I'm going to get a drink. Be right back," he said and he left me on his bed.
I went downstairs to get a drink. I leaned over the sink and just thought for a minute.
This is the girl I love. She's up in my room. She's perfect in every way. I love her.
I grabbed my glass of Dr. Pepper and left the kitchen. I was about to pass the living room, when I heard my parents talking. I stood at the doorway and tuned in:
How are we going to tell Luke?
He'll be so depressed.
What kid wouldn't? We're moving.
I dropped the glass. It shattered as it hit the floor. My parents turned to look at me. My mom covered her mouth and tears formed in her eyes.
"Honey-" she was speechless. Then my bedroom door opened and Ashley leaned over the railing.
"What happened?!?!?" She asked worriedly. I felt a tear stream down my face.
This can't be happening.
