My phone starts ringing and I quickly wipe my nose before answering.
"Hello?" I say, trying to sound like I wasn't just crying two minutes ago.
"Hi honey! I'm going to be staying at work a while longer. I'll probably get back around 11? Are you ok staying home by yourself?" my mom asks and I could hear rustling on the other side.
"Yeah, I'm hanging out with the guys right now, so don't worry," I respond.
"Ok, bye Charlie, love you," she says, then the line goes dead.
I put my phone down and try to find something to do to take my mind off of things. I spot Calum's guitar laying on a towel and reach over to get it. I strum some random chords, then start to sing.
"All I am, is a man. I want the world, in my hands. I hate the beach, but I stand, in California with my toes in the sand..."
I continue the song until the chorus comes.
"'Cause it's too cold, for you here. And now, so let me hold, both your hands in, the holes of my sweater....."
"Com'on Luke, let's go in the water," Aleisha whines. I sigh internally and follow her into the water.
I can't keep this up anymore. I need to tell the boys that I never really broke up with Aleisha. I was just too chicken to do it before we went on tour.
I look over at the boys and Charlie and couldn't help but feel jealous that they were getting to hang out together without me. I see Calum strum something on his guitar then stops. Charlie says something and they all laugh, except for Calum. Finally, he starts playing the guitar and the boys begin to sing.
"Luke, come on!" Aleisha shouts, looking annoyed.
"Shhh, wait," I tell her. I could faintly hear Calum play a familiar tune on the guitar as they start singing. The Only Reason. I wrote this song for Charlie. She looks over at Aleisha and I and I randomly splash water at Aleisha without thinking. Right when Charlie looks away, Aleisha splashes me back angrily.
"Luke! You got my hair wet!" she scolds me, fixing her hair.
"What, it's just water!" I reply with an eye roll.
She stomps back to shore and I follow her, groaning. How did I put up with her before?
Hello everyone it's been a while :) This update is so late and I'm sooo sorry. I rushed to get this done and published so sorry if it sucked.
All the love,
