Falling for him

Kirsten is on a journey to Sydney. She is then met by a tall handsome guy name Luke. They catch each other's eyes but will they fall for each other?


6. Chapter Five: Bumping into Luke

As I walk up to the restaurant. There was no doubt that there was gonna be a long wait.

"Whatever", I thought.

After I made my way to the cashier. I didn't know what to get. I decided and walked to a nearby table.

Come to think of it. I haven't been on social media for awhile now. Might as well kill time on Twitter.

Never realizing my eyes were glued to my phone screen, I hear my name being called.

"Kriss?" A short lady that handed me my order asked.

(Fun fact: I use the name "Kriss" when I order food. Well it's a nickname actually.)

"Thank you!" I said.

"Finally! I was getting restless." I thought.

As I walked out the restaurant with my order to go. I feel someone shove me down to the ground right before going through the doors.

I got up and was then met by a tall cute blonde haired boy with blue eyes.

"I'm so sorry! Are you okay?" He asked.

I felt like he wasn't talking to me until he waved me out of a blank space.

"Oh.. Umm yes I'm fine. But looks like I'm going to have to order and wait again." I chuckled.

"I'm very sorry. If you don't mind. I'd like to buy? It's the least I could do, after I pushed you to the ground." He smirked.

"It's fine. I wasn't that hungry anyway." I lied.

"Please." He said with sincere eyes.

"Okay sure. Thank you." I smiled shyly.

As we waited for our order. I couldn't help but look at him every time he looked a different direction. His eyes sparkled with a blue color that I was unable to describe. His hair was perfectly quiffed. And his body structure, was muscular. Don't get me started on his lip ring. It suited his perfectly plumped lips.

I noticed he was wearing a Rolling Stones t-shirt which led us to catch each other's eyes. I quickly looked down as I started to blush.

"What?" He smirked.

"Nothing." I replied. Looking down at my fingers.

"You can tell me." As he started to lean closer. Making me look at him once more. This time he gave me what seemed to be the puppy eyes.

"Stop." I blushed. I couldn't help myself. He was so darn cute. My body forgot about being in pain until I dropped my phone. Which I'm so thankful for not being shattered all over the floor, that I tried to save with my sore arms.

"Here let me get that." He said. As he reached down to get my phone.

Being completely blank I didn't realize he was picking up my phone until I grabbed his hand, as he brought the phone back up to the table. My hand laid there like it was meant to be there. Until he started smiling and asked me a question.

"What's your name by the way?" He smiled.

Snapping out of my trance I noticed my hand was still holding his across the table.

"Oh my gosh. I'm... I'm so sorry. I didn't mea-" until I was cut off.

"It's fine" as he handed me my phone. He looked down. I could tell he was blushing.

"My name is Kirsten." I replied, I little bit embarrassed.

"I'm Luke." He replied, giving me his hand to shake.

I smiled and shook his hand. Which gave me a slight shock. It was soft at the palm and rough with callus at the tips.

"Static." he smirks.

"So what brings you to Sydney? Because I know for a fact that your not from here. You sound quite American. A cute one at that." He says.

"Yeah. I'm from Utah actually." I smiled.

"So what kind of tri-" he says before he gets cut off.

"Sorry about your orders. We really need to get that door fixed. We've had a couple incidents in the past similar to this. We'll take care of it." An employee says as she hands Luke back his money, quickly walking away.

"Thanks.." Luke said.


"Wow what?"

"Did you really order all this food?" I giggled.

"No actually. I was suppose to pick up some food for me and my mates, before I realized I didn't get napkins. I came back in here and... well I met you." He chuckles with a slight shade of red on his cheeks.

"Well. I do appreciate you buying me lunch." I smiled.

"Technically. The employee bought us lunch." He laughed. Making me laugh as well.

"It was nice meeting you Luke." I said in a slight sad serious tone.

"It was nice meeting you as well, Kirsten." He smiles.

As I walk out into the busy streets of Sydney. I feel a grasp on my wrist pulling me around to see who it was. It was Luke.

"So I was kind of wondering if you want to hang out later. I mean, after all, your only in Sydney for awhile." He smirks.

Being a little shocked. I was a little nervous on how to respond.


Oh my god! Cool? Are you serious right now. Why didn't I just say sure instead of making a complete idiot of myself.

"What I meant to say was 'Sure'." I said being more embarrassed as I was before.

"Okay. Well let me give you my number." He smiles.

I handed my phone to him and he gave me his as well. I didn't hesitate to take a silly picture for the caller ID and I handed him his phone back.

I look into my phone to see his contact name as "Penguin Luke<3". Which made me giggle.

"I'll text you as soon as I get this food to Calums." He says.

"Sounds good." I say as we started to part ways. Until I feel a tug on my flannel.

"Nice shirt by the way." Luke winked.

My heart was beating so quickly. I went back to our hand shake. I thought stuff like this only happened in the movies. I don't know, all I know is that I just wanted to get back and tell Allie about this.

As I quickly walked towards the hotel. I ran through the doors and towards the elevator. Making sure no one was in my way. I pressed the floor button numerous amount of times until I heard the bell ring.

I walk out to see Allie opening the room door. Slowly closing I put my foot through the door and caught it before it closed.

Allie then opened the door to a tired me. She then grabbed a few bags for me as I tried to gasp for air.

"Al-" breathing heavily.


"You will not believe what happened today." Finally catching my breath.

"What!" Allie squealed.

I told her everything. Detail by detail. I then get a look of Allie with a dropped mouth which then turned into a smile.

"So he'll be texting you very soon?" She asked.

"He should be. He told me he was gonna text me when he dropped off the food for him and his friends." I replied.

"Well.. I can't wait to meet him. If you let me."

"Don't worry. It'll be soon." I smiled.

"I'm going to the pool. Be back in about an hour." Allie says.

"Alright. I'll be here. Or out. I'll let you know!" I shouted as she walked out the door.

Now what do I do. My laptop was calling my name. My food was still warm enough for me to enjoy. I might as well do what I wanted to do in the first place.

Luke's POV

I walked back to Calum's. I already couldn't stop thinking about her.

She was tall and tan. She had long brown hair and brown eyes. Her choice in clothing was perfect. Especially that Nirvana shirt. Which seemed to sum it off. Her personality was interesting by the way she acted. She was amazing.

As I got to Calum's house, I rang the doorbell. I hear Ashton yelling as he walks up to the door and looks through the window.

"What's the password?" Ash says.

"Can you please open this door? Like now?!" I yelled. Trying not to drop the food and drinks.

"Nope that's not it." Ashton replies.

I kicked the door to hear Ashton hit his head against it. He then opened the door to say, "You didn't need to hurt my ear you know!"

I couldn't help but laugh my ass off.

As I made my way to the kitchen I was relieved. I just wanted to dig in until I remembered why I was so eager to get back.

Kirsten. That's why.

As I walk up to Calum's room I find the guys playing video games.

"Foods here!" I yelled. Trying to get Michael and Calum's attention.

"Be down in a few!" A focused Calum says.

I make my way back down to the kitchen. I'm so hungry! I'll text Kirsten after I eat.

Kirsten's POV

I wake up from my nap to find that it was now 3, almost 4.

I checked my phone and thought I had gotten a text but there was nothing. Should I just text him?

I'll give him a couple more minutes.

I walk to the bathroom and look at how wrinkly my clothes have gotten. Might as well change!

I dug through my suitcase to find denim high waisted shorts, along with a Ramones crop top, I had made myself. I then got my red Toms and found my red cardigan. Then curled my hair into waves.

As soon as I was ready once again. I hear my phone ring from the room. I run trying to dodge everything out of my way. I see that I'm getting a phone call from Luke.

Luke's POV

After minutes of watching the guys play video games. I forgot about telling the guys what had happened today.

Making our way downstairs and into the kitchen. I start to talk.

"So guess what happened today guys?" I asked with a high pitched voice.

"You slipped on an ice cube?" Ashton giggles.

"What?" Michael asks.

"He met a girl." Calum says.

"How'd you know Cal?" I ask.

"Because you mixed up our orders. Look!" He says.

Wow. Did I really? I wonder if she noticed. Which reminds me. I NEED TO TEXT HER!!!!!!!!

I ran into the living room where my phone was charging, to find Michael on my phone.

"Hey! I think I found her!" Michael yells.

He puts the phone over his ear. I hope he isn't calling Kirsten.

"Hello?" Michael says.

Kirsten's POV

"Hello?" an unfamiliar voice speaks.

"Hi? I'm guessing your Luke's friend. Correct?" I say.

"I'm Michael. Do you like piz-" until his voice gets cut off by a more familiar voice.

"Hi. Kirsten?" Luke said.

"Hi. Luke! Umm who was that?"

"Michael. He's... Uhh." Before Luke cuts himself off with another subject. "I was wondering... Would you like to come hang with us? I could introduce you to the lads." He asks.

Being more nervous than I was, I obviously was getting to conclusions, but my gut was telling me to live life.

"Sure. Where should I meet you?" I ask.

"Where are you staying?" He asks.

I was blank. My mind was thinking about how I was going to see him again. What if something happens? What if we kiss? What if I start to fall for him instantly? Or worse. What if he controls me into some mischief.

"Some hotel a couple blocks away from the mall... Downtown." I didn't know Sydney to well. Unlike what I should've done. I confused myself a bit.

Thank god Luke says, "I know the place."

I could feel his smile through the call. The thought of his beautiful face gave me the chills.

Luke's POV

Yeah. Michael is definitely calling Kirsten.

"I'm Michael. Do you like piz-" he says before I cut him off.

"Hi. Kirsten?" I say without sounding desperate to talk to her.

"Hi. Luke! Umm who was that?" She asks.

"Michael. He's... Uhh." I cut myself off. How could I ask her to hang out without scaring her away? I thought.

"I was wondering... Would you like to come hang with us? I could introduce you to the lads." I ask sheepish.

Without being rejected. I was relieved.

I'm glad I asked because well, I want to see her again. Hopefully, Cal, Mikey, and Ash won't be all over her.

I want her.

After all, she's only here temporary.
