I woke up the sound of Luke’s voice, “wake up” I groaned, and threw my pillow at him, it hit him on the arm, “ouch” he said, and sat down next to me. He was wearing a white top and blue bathing shorts. “Are you still mad at me?” he asked quickly, I sat up next to him, and shook my head, “good” he cheered, and patted me on the back.
“Get dressed, we’re going to the beach” Luke announced and left my room. I groaned again, but did what I was told. I chanced into my pink and white bikini, and took a pair of denim short and a see through white shirt over it.
I went into the bathroom to brush my hair, and fix my makeup, I only applied some waterproof mascara.
“Breakfast” Luke yelled, I went into the kitchen. Luke had placed two bowls with spoons on the table, “wow, you did this all by yourself?” I asked sarcastically.
“Yeah it wasn’t easy” he said and sat down, “can you bring the milk and the cereal over?” I rolled my eyes, but did what he said.
“Why are we going to the beach?” I asked nibbing to my cereal, I never had much appetite when I had just woken up. Luke shrugged “beaches are fun, and it’s going to get hot today” I nodded, and ate a little more. “I’m sorry about-” I held my hand up to shut him up, “it’s okay” I tried to avoid talking about Gabe, it was too painful.
“Let’s go” Luke said after he had finished eating, I grabbed my wallet and followed Luke outside to the car.
“Do you wanna talk about it?” Luke asked, I could tell that he was worried, “not right now” I said and turned the radio on, it were playing The Days by Avicii. Luke nodded, and started to sing along. The beach were only 10 minutes away, but it felt like so much more, I just wanted today to end, so I could get home.
Luke and I found the perfect spot on the beach, there was a lot of people, which Luke thought was nice, because then it was a lot easier to hide from the papz, but he was wearing a hat and sunglasses just in case.
“I brought blankets” Luke said, and took a blue blanket out of a basket he had sat on the ground. He spread the blanket on the sand, and we both sat down, “what’s in the basket?” I asked and nodded towards the basket. “Food, and stuff” he said and rearranged his legs so he was sitting in legged position looking at me. “Are you sure you don’t wanna talk about it?” Luke asked, I shrugged “I don’t think that would be appropriate” Luke looked through the basket and found two colas, and handed me one of them. “I think we went over that line long ago” he said and gave me a cheeky smile.
I opened my cola and took a big sip, “wanna go into the water” I asked changing the subject, he nodded and took of his shirt, I took mine off as well and my shorts. He took my hand, and pulled me closer to the water.
He jumped in the water immediately, the water was up to my ankles. “Come on” Luke said and splashed water into my face, I squaled when it hit me.
Luke stood up, the water was running down his torso. He wrapped his arms around my body, his mouth was inches from my ear, “I’m gonna make you wet” he then lifted my body and threw me into the water. It took a few seconds to get used to the cold.
Luke swimmed closer to me, “you’re so funny” I said sarcastically, and splashed water into his face. “I know” he said smirking, and he wrapped his arms around me again, “please Luke” I said when his body touched mine, he laughed into my ear “sorry, but you took so long to get into the water” I smiled “not even 5 seconds”, we swam around and talked for a while, sometimes I would throw water at him, and sometimes the other way around.
“I’m glad we went to the beach today” I said to Luke who was in front of me, my fingers were starting to get wrinkly, we had been swimming for about an hour. “Yeah?” he asked, I nodded “yeah”
“To be honest I just thought it would cheer you up” he said blushing slightly, I smiled and took his hand, “thank you” I hugged him, which was a little awkward in the water.
“Are you hungry?” he asked after a while, I nodded “starving”.
We hurried out of the water, and sat down on the blanket with a towel around each of us. Luke found two sandwiches that he had made earlier before I woke up, and handed me one of them. “Thanks” I said, and started eating.
“Your boyfriend is weird” Luke said looking at the water eating his sandwich, “you haven’t even met him” I said, and took a bite of my sandwich, “yeah, but he cheated on you, and no normal person would do that, not to you” he said still looking at the water, I laughed, “thanks, but I’m not a good girlfriend” I said and finished my sandwich, and started on a new one. “really?” he asked and looked at me, I nodded “yeah, I have a special way to behave around clients, and sometimes I did that around him, well most of the time actually” Luke shrugged, “I like how you behave around clients” I smiled and drank some cola, it wasn’t good after lying in the sun for that long. “I don’t behave like this around all of my clients, you’re special” the sun was in my eyes so I wasn’t completely sure, but I swear to God Luke blushed. “Wasn’t he special?” I frowned at that question, “of course he was” I said a little unsure, where was Luke going with this?
“Who did he cheat on you with?” Luke asked after a while, I shrugged “I don’t know, he didn’t say” Luke nodded, “please tell me you punched him” Luke asked pleading, I smiled sadly, “I wish, but I did break a bottle of red wine on his carpet” Luke laughed, and gave me a high five, “that’s hard to get off” I nodded, it made me satisfied to think that he had to pay for a whole new carpet in the living room.
“Thank you for helping me last night, I wasn’t thinking clearly” I said changing the subject slightly, “I knew you would regret it”.
When there wasn’t any sandwiches left we decided to go buy an icecream.
“I’ll have that one” I said and pointed to a kitkat ice cream, “I’ll have the same” Luke told the man, and gave him some money, he handed us our ice cream, and we said goodbye. Later we met a teenage girl who was a big fan of Luke, she wanted me to take a picture of them together, it was really cute, Luke changed into another person when he was with fans, she also asked me if Luke was my boyfriend, in which I said no, and she looked a little relieved.
“What do you wanna do now?” I asked Luke, we were sitting on the blanket again, we had just come back from swimming again, and it was getting darker.
“I have an idea” Luke said, and found my box filled with pictures of me and Gabe and handed it to me, “no” I said, and put the box on the ground, Luke searched through the basket again and found a little bucket and a lighter.
“No” I said again, Luke shrugged “okay” I sighed in relief. Luke opened the box and took on of my favourite pictures of me and Gabe, “cute” he said while looking at it, it was taken a couple of years back, his arms were around me, we looked really happy, I could feel the tears in my eyes, but I ignored them. “Yeah, it’s one of my favourites” Luke nodded, and then he sat it on fire, and threw it into the bucket, “what the hell Luke?” I yelled, the people around us looked at us.
“Ups” he said, and burned another picture, “stop” I hissed, and took the lighter out of his hands. “Didn’t that feel good?” Luke asked, I looked at him with big eyes, “seriously?” I asked annoyed, he shrugged “yeah, try it” he handed me a picture of Gabe and I in a zoo kissing, I hesitated, “I’m not ready, it’s 4 years down the drain, you don’t understand” Luke looked into my eyes, “Do you wanna get back together with this guy?” Luke asked, I shook my head “no, of course not, but-”
“-Then burn the damn pictures” Luke interrupted, I nodded and pressed the button the lighter. The little flame came out, I pressed it against the picture, and saw the flame consume the corner of it. I gently put it down the bucket and started lightning another.
“Do you have any pictures left of him?” Luke asked, I thought about it for a second “yes” and found the picture of him in my wallet, Luke held it why I ignited the photo. “Thank you” I said, I could only see Luke because of the fire, everything around us was pitch black. “You’re welcome”
“Wanna go get some dinner?” Luke asked, I nodded, and we packed our things.
We stopped at Macca’s and brought food via the drive thru. We ate in the car, and when we got home we watched Mean Girls 2, which wasn’t a good movie, and then we went to bed.
