4. Goodbye

We were standing on the sidewalk in front of my house.

"What'd I do, Lucy?"

I turned and looked at him. His chest was bare and he was just wearing a pair of old grey sweats.


Luke shook his head, trying to comprehend what I had just said.

"What are you talking about, Lucy?"

I looked at his blue eyes, trying not to cry.

"I have to go," I nearly whispered.

I ripped my gaze from his and turned away, heading towards my house.

"Wait," he grabbed my arm, turning me towards him.

I looked up at him and in a second his lips were on mine. It was a soft kiss.

A single tear slid down my cheek when he pulled away.

He smiled.

"Don't cry, I'll see you tomorrow," He wiped the tear from my face with his thumb.

I looked down and shook my head.

"No you won't," I said quietly, hoping he wouldn't hear me.

He did.

He stepped back.

"What do you mean?"

I took a deep breath.

"I'm not going to be here tomorrow,"

"What, why not? Where are you going? Lucy?"

"I'm leaving. I'm moving to England," I gulped, waiting for his reaction.

His face paled.

"What?" His voice cracked with emotion.

"Luke, I'm sorry," I moved my hand to touch his face.

He stepped away.

I let my hand drop to my side, knowing I had hurt him badly.

"Don't touch me,"


Without taking another look at me, he turned on his heel and walked quickly towards his house.

"Luke, please,"

He kept walking.

I had to run to catch up to him.

I grabbed his arm. He jerked it away, causing me to lose my balance. My knees hit the hard pavement. He didn't turn around.

"Luke!" I sat there on my knees crying as I watched him go into his house and slam the door behind him.

I stayed like that, head in hands, for what seemed like hours. It was only a few minutes.

"Lucy!" I heard a woman call. It was my mother. "Lucy, you need to pack your stuff, the trucks going to be here in an hour!"

I wiped the tears from my eyes and stood up. I looked up at Luke's window, hoping to see him looking back down at me. He wasn't.

"Coming!" I called back to my mother.
