It was Thursday. I walked into the cafeteria with Luke. "Let's sit over there" i say pointing to an empty table at the back. After I grab my lunch we sit down. "Luke? Where's your lunch?" I ask. "I already had food this morning" he proclaims. "What! So all you haven't rate in 3 hours and your not hungry?" I'm shocked at his statement. "I Just. Don't want to talk right now" he says looking down at his legs. "Hello Luke. I assume you've already finished your lunch.What a pig" Calum parades over with Michael trailing behind. Luke stares at the table keeping his head down. Calum shoves a sheet of paper in Luke's face and walks away. Luke grabs it and looks at it before falling into his own arms on the table. I pick it up. He's printed out that picture he showed on Monday in media. "Luke, is that what it is? Do you think your fat?" I ask. "I don't think I'm fat, I know I'm FAT. Stop rubbing it in" he says. "Luke you are not fat. You can't be sad just because of Calum's words" i reply to him. "it's not just what Calum says Ashton. There's more then what you've seen." Luke yells at me. "Okay Well im pretty sure I know more about him then you" i proclaim. "How?" He asks.
"I don't want to talk about it."
Ashton's only trying to be nice and I'm being a dick. "Look Ashton I'm sorry. I just haven't had a friend in a long time and I don't know if I can do this." i tell him. "Well how bout you come to my house this afternoon and we can chill?" He questions. "Okay" i say unsure about why he likes me. "Luke?" He asks. "Yeah?"
"Has Calum um, told you? Do you know? "
"About my secret?" He asks.
"No. What is it?"
*later at Ashtons*
"I hate this game" i sneer as Luke beats me at FIFA for the hundredth time. "This game is amazing" he laughs. We've been playing for hours. "Hey luke I finished the last two chapters in history this afternoon so do you want to read this?" I ask handing him my book. "Sure" he says and puts it in his bag. "I really loved it, Somehow I felt it was written about me" i stated. "So if I read this will I know more about you?" He asks. "Well one of my biggest problems is in this book. That's why I love this author." I say. "Well it's getting late" i announce looking at the clock. "Yeah i better go." Luke says. "Where do you live?" I ask. "Well I'm not allowed home tonight" he murmurs. "What do you mean?" I question. "If I go home I'll have to sleep on the porch. So I'm going to find somewhere I guess"
"You know we have a spare room, my mums gone for tonight so you can sleep over"
"Thank you. Ashton you've been so nice to me. I just want to say thanks." He says and with that he's of to bed.
It's 11:00pm and I couldn't sleep so i thought 'what the hell' and decided to start reading the book, I've read to the 4th chapter and I'm still going.
I feel the breeze as I sit in the garden waiting. Maybe I should go, I've never been in this situation before. Will my mother still look at me the same? The same way if she knew? My father would kill me. He never wanted me to turn out this way. Heck, he never wanted me at all. Joey appeared down the path and smiled. "Hi" "hey" he sat next to me. "Joey I have to tell you something" i look him deeply in his blue eyes. "I don't know if you feel the same way but-" he connects his lips with mine. This is the moment I thought I'd never see. "But Joey, you said you loved Steph? I- I don't understand" I say shocked. "No Shane, I love you." He says. Taken aback i stand up. "Shane who cares what society says. The are a bunch of homophobic hypocrites. Do you want to be with me?" Of course I did. "Yes, I do. But for now this must be secret." A single rose stood proud next to us as we locked lips again.
That was the end of the chapter. After I read it I fell fast asleep.
