Falling for the Enemy

Nora and Luke are the most popular people in school. You'd think they'd get along, right? Nope. Nora gets a crush on Luke but freaks out because he's a player and of course she's supposed to hate his guts. But things get a bit different when Luke comes onto Nora and definitely gives her something to think about.


10. What were they fighting about?

Author's Note: Hey! Sorrrrryyyyy I haven't updated for ages! Writers block, you know? Anyway so yeah 5SOS did some crazy shit and I'm not talking about Calum smoking cuz I'm fine with that but yeah I guess I'm sorta ok with it now and I hope you like the chapter!!

"We've got gym now." Ashton stated after the bell rang. We walked with our fingers intertwined down the hallway. I entered the gym, and my eyes immediately fell on Luke who was already sitting down with his arms rested on his knees. He looked up at me, but didn't show any emotions through his eyes. I didn't care if he saw me staring. I gave him a hurt look, which in exchange he gave me a slight look of guilt, but immediately changed it into a glare. "Nora?" Ashton tugged on my arm.


"Let's go sit down." He pulled me across the crowd.

"Can we sit with Maddi?" I asked.

"Uhh sure." He agreed. I walked over to Maddi as Ashton followed me. I sat next to her and gave her a quiet "Hey." before she gave one back.

"So uhh... I heard you and Luke broke up. Sorry about that." She began.

"That's fine." I paused for a moment. "I've got a better guy now." I struggled to get the words out. I missed Luke so much. I plastered a fake smile on my face. The gym teacher then burst in.

"Warm ups! Run laps around the gym!" He yelled straight away. I jogged with Ashton around the gym. It was nice that he went my speed for once. Luke passed us a couple of times. Eventually the gym teacher stopped us. "Ok. We're playing basketball! Everyone get in pairs, and then find another pair to go up against!" He ordered. Fuck. I really should've thought this through. I looked at Ashton.

"It's fine. You go with Maddi." He insisted.

"Who are you going to go with?" I asked. Ashton shrugged. I sighed and grabbed Maddi by the hand, pulling her out of the crowded group so we'd have more room. Not too far away, I saw Ashton. He was talking to Luke. Luke started to get an angry look on his face, and started to yell. I walked over to them to see what was going on. "No! I won't! You think I will after you did that?! You fucking knew, but took advantage of it anyway!" Luke snapped.

"I did it for the best!" Ashton yelled back. Luke shoved him.

"No you fucking didn't! You're just a greedy asshole!"

"HEY! Stop fighting!" I demanded. Now a lot of people's attention was drawn to Luke and Ashton.

"What's going on here?" The gym teacher butted in.

"They were fighting!" Some girl that I didn't see called out.

"Great. You two can go together." The teacher hissed, sending glares to both of them. Luke groaned, whilst Ashton looked at the floor a bit upset.


The bell rang and I grabbed my bag to head home, but then got stopped by a hand grabbing my wrist. I turned around. "Ashton?"

"Hey, I was wondering i-if umm..." He started off confident, but then sort of trailed off.


"Uhh... Come to my place at 6?" He asked.

"Sure." I grinned. He kept his hand on my wrist and just stared at me. "Are you going to tell me what we're going to do at your place?" I giggled.

"Uhmm... No..." He said unsure. I gave him a confused look, but smiled at the same time. I looked down at his hand that was still holding onto my wrist. He instantly let go of it and sprinted off. I laughed. Honestly, he is the cutest thing. Luke would never get that nervous around me, but then again, I don't feel butterflies at all when I'm around Ashton. No butterflies means no excitement. But I guess getting Luke back isn't a choice for me. I walked home, wondering what Ashton and I were going to do tonight. I heard a group of girls laughing from across the road. I looked over, and my stomach completely flipped when I saw Aleisha with a group that included Bella, Hannah, and a few more girls. I quickly put my head down, pretending I didn't see them. After a minute had passed, and I thought I was far ahead of them, my name got called from behind me. "Nora!" Aleisha was jogging up to me with her group following far behind her.

"What." I answered. She stopped in front of me, and began to speak.

"I just wanna let you know, it's ok." She told me.

"What's ok?" I asked.

"I know you feel pretty stupid because I told you he was using you, but you didn't believe. But it's ok, because you were right about me wanting Luke back." She explained, grinning. I could just see the evil behind her smile.

"He wasn't using me, you just made it out to be like that." I muttered.

"Do you mean?"

"I don't know how you did it, but somehow you got him to hate me." I explained.

"That was all his choice, honey." And just with that, she left to her group without saying anything else. I sighed and carried on my walk to my house.

When I got home, it was 4 o'clock. I went into the shower and washed my hair, shaved my legs, etc. I then got out and looked through my cupboard to see what to wear. I picked out high-waisted light blue denim shorts with rips along the sides and a black tank top that was decorated with pink roses. I put on vans that matched the design on my top, and then started to do my make up. I applied mascara and did a black wing with my liquid eye liner, also applying brown eye shadow to the crease of my eyelid. I put on light pink lipgloss, and re-applied BB cream under my eyes that had slightly come off during the day. I haven't gotten much sleep lately so I have lines under my eyes I need to cover up. I decided to curl the ends of my hair. I have completely straight hair so it can get boring. I checked the time and it was 5:30 so I sort of just laid around for 20 minutes before leaving to go to Ashton's house.


"You look nice." Ashton said as soon as he answered the door.

"Thanks. You too." I replied, walking in. "So can you tell me what we're doing now?" I asked.

"We're going to the beach!" He grabbed my hand and got a basket. We went outside to his car and he opened the car door for me. 👏👏

After like 7 minutes, we arrived at the beach. The sun was going down. He grabbed the basket out of the car and we went to sit in front of the sand, on the grass. He opened the basket and pulled out a box of pizza. "Pizza?" I giggled.

"Yep." He replied. He put the box in front of us and immediately opened it and started eating. I thought maybe he'd want me to eat too so I ate 2 pieces and then stopped. "You're only eating two pieces?" He asked.

"Yeah." I shrugged.


"Pizza isn't healthy!" I laughed.

"You're not fat, you know."

"Yeah, and I'd like to keep it that way." I said, grinning. Ashton rolled his eyes and ate until there was only a few pieces left. By now the sun was down and the stars were out. We moved the basket aside and laid down next to each other. (awww) "So what were you and Luke fighting about?" I asked.

"Oh, nothing. He's just an angry person." He answered. "No! I won't! You think I will after you did that?! You fucking knew, but took advantage of it anyway!" Luke snapped.

"I did it for the best!" Ashton yelled back. Luke shoved him.

"No you fucking didn't! You're just a greedy asshole!" What on Earth could they have been fighting about? "Right, well I hope you two can stay friends." I said. Ashton shrugged slightly.

"I don't know. It'd be really awkward." He told me.

"Hey, friends have fights. It's normal." I placed my hand on his.

"We're not friends." He mumbled.

"Shut up. You will be. Ok?"

"How do you know?" He asked.

"I know because you and Luke had so much in common and you don't just lose something like that. Either you were never really friends, or you make up." I explained.

"Nora, I don't think h-"

"Trust me." I said, cutting him off.

Luke's POV


The gym teacher has just announced that we have to go in pairs. What am I going to do? I'm super fucking pissed at Ashton. I saw Maddi and Nora head off together. I felt someone place their hand on my shoulder and turn me around. "Ashton." I muttered.

"Luke, I know we have some tension between us, about the whole thing with Nora and all, but I really need someone to go with." Ashton told me.

"But you-"

"Luke. I know what I did. But I really do like Nora! Now can you please just be my partner?" He begged.

"No." I muttered.

"Luke! I know you didn't want to br-"

"No! I won't! You think I will after you did that?! You fucking knew, but took advantage of it anyway!" I snapped.

"I did it for the best!" Ashton yelled back. I shoved him.

"No you fucking didn't! You're just a greedy asshole!"
