6. Chapter 6
Luke didn't text me last night. I wonder if he wants to come? I was confused so I decided to just drive over. Luckily in the last text he had location on. Not even creepy...
A black eyed teen girl about 19 (me and Luke are 17) answers the door. What the hell happened here?
She looks at me and scoffs "who are you?".
"I'm um- can I see luke?" I stutter out. "Ok whatever he's upstairs, and be quiet my fathers sleeping" she invites me in and then slams the door. I thought we were supposed to be quiet? Oh well. I head upstairs and manage to find Luke's room. "Hey luke its Ashton" i say as I enter the room, he is on his bed facing the wall. "Are you coming over?" I ask, I thought he was sleeping but he replied with "I can't". It made me confused. "What do you mean you can't?" I ask with puzzled eyes even though he can't see me. "My father, he'll-" he stops.
"He'll what luke?" I question. Luke turns around revealing a bruised and beaten face. He stares into my eyes. "He'll kill me ashton." He says before covering his face. "Luke I'm getting you out of here" i run towards him and give him a small hug. I pack 2 bags of his things. "Ashton, we can't get out without being seen" he exclaims. I open his balcony door and do a drop and roll. I hurt my hands a bit but I was able to catch the bags Luke threw off the edge. When he unexpectedly jumped I had no time to realise and next thing I know I'm on the ground and he is on top of me. He lifts his head up and softly mumbles "sorry". He awkwardly hops up. "We have to hurry to avoid getting noticed" he says.
I'm driving to my place with one hand on the wheel and the other resting on the glovebox (IDK IF THATS WHAT YOU CALL IT. But that's what I call it). "It's so hot" Luke moans flipping down the sun visor in front of him. He reaches to flick the air conditioning on, lightly brushing my arm with his. He places his arm beside mine. I subtly curl my fingers and end up "accidently" getting his fingers caught between mine.
We arrive at the house and I notice my hand intertwined with his. I don't know how it happened but I shuffle out of the car and grab my bags from the back. "I got it" Ashton's yells as he comes round whipping the bags onto his back. We walk inside and up the stairs where he lead me into the spare room. "Mum called this morning saying she is staying in New York for 2 weeks. So you won't be kicked out" he informs. I smile and start to unpack my bags. "Thanks Ashton, for everything" i say with a smile. He gives me a hug. "Agh- oh sorry i have a bruise there" i yelp as he pushes against a bruise. He takes my shirt of to see the bruise. "There's so many, and what this?" He said pointing to the cuts across my stomach. "Those are... Well, because of Calum. I don't want you to see them" i mumble. He hugs me again, softer this time. "Don't let Calum get to you. Oh and also, if your hungry then I have plenty of food" he explains. We sit down on the bed. "No I'm not hungry" i say. "Luke, if you don't eat your food I will personally hand feed it to you" he inforces. "Ok jeez, you like my dad" i smirk placing my hand on his thigh as I laugh. He looks uncomfortable and turns away. I remove my hand awkwardly. He looks back a me and pushes me down onto the bed. Coming close to my ear seductively whispering "I'll be your daddy" ....
