Luke and I jammed out to our favorite songs that came on the radio when we were in the car. We laughed hysterically at the stupidest things. He told me beyond hilarious stories about himself when he was younger, about his family, about Calum and the guys when they all moved here. I hadn’t laughed this much ever since what happened to my best friend. We were having the time of our lives, and I felt bad that she wasn’t here herself to enjoy it with me. Anyway, the first stop we made on our tour was Port Jackson. I gasped at the breath taking view. I thought about how lucky people were to live here and see this amazing view every day. Then we went to The Rocks and Luke gave me a whole history lesson and I surprisingly actually listened! After that, we went for lunch. Soon after that, we went to Sea Life Sydney Aquarium. As we were walking, someone slipped a note into my hand and I instantly knew exactly who it was. I gave Luke a sign that I had to go to the bathroom. When I went in, I read the note. Here’s what it said:
“I hope you haven’t said anything. Meet me at 9469 Harlem Avenue at the usual time. Remember, I’m watching.”
I checked my phone to see what time it was, and it was almost 1:30 and our meeting time was 3 and it would take about half an hour to get back home plus the traffic it would take an hour leaving me half an hour to get there. I left the bathroom and found Luke. I pulled out my phone and typed in;
I need to go, I just remembered I have to meet a friend today at three. Sorry, maybe we could continue our tour another day?
After he read it I could see his eyes sadden. It really broke my heart to lie to him like this, but I really had no other choice. “Okay, want me to drive you?” Luke asked. Right at that moment I received a text. It read;
No, you will come alone.
But I don’t know where it is. I’ll need help. I replied.
It’s right behind your house. It won’t take you long to find it.
I looked back up at Luke and shook my head no. I typed in;
If you could just drive me back home, it would be great!
“Okay, let’s go” he said starting to walk.
Once we pulled into the driveway and got out of the car, I gave Luke a hug and a look that said both “thanks” and “sorry”. “Do you have to go right now?” he asked, sadness in his voice, like a child not wanting his mom to leave for work. I shook my head a no and drew a “30” in the air. Luke’s eyes brightened up a little. He put his arm around my shoulder and we walked in the house together. We watched a few episodes of Once Upon A Time before it was finally time for me to leave.
I walked a few blocks before I got to my destination. And there he was. Standing there, staring right at me with his ice cold eyes, making me stop in my tracks and staring in utter fear.
