"What about your dad?" "He's...... dead." Calum's said bluntly.
I felt a horrible feeling, one I couldn't describe. I simply stood up tugged downwards at my shirt, and grabbed Luke's hand. I gently pulled on it so we could leave. As I made it halfway out I looked back to see me dad still sitting there with the phone up to his ear. He mouthed something but I couldn't understand it and I truly didn't care.
When I reached the parking lot I ran from Luke's side to the car. I immediately hopped up on the hood of the car and buried my face in my hands. I felt like crying but I wasn't going too. I refused to let my dad do this to me, cause that would mean he won. There was a thud on the car as I looked up I saw Luke sitting there. "You ok?" He asked softly scooting closer. "Not really." I sighed. "I know." He said as he pulled me to him laying my head on his chest. "But it'll get better." He cooed in my ear. I just wish I could of believed him.
"Calum I'm... Im so sorry." I said as I ran up and hugged him. "But how, he seemed fine when we visited, just a couple of hours ago!" I sighed, fighting back tears. I only had knew his dad for about 2 hours, but I saw how much he meant to Calum and I knew too how much he meant me. "They said he had a small tear in his lungs and blood and fluid slowly dripped in over the past month and eventually...... well ya know." He said grabbing my shirt and handing it to me.
"Do you want to go to bed?" I asked slipping the covers over me. "Nah I think I'm going to drive for a bit." He said grabbing his jacket. "Oh do you want me to come?" "No it's fine, get some rest, I'll be back in a bit." He said kissing my temple and then left.
I jumped in the car and placed my hands on the wheel. I felt anger overcome me, and I don't why. All I could do was hit my hands against the steering wheel and listen to he small beep that came from the car. I slowly rested my forehead on the wheel. I sat there just thinking, thinking what I did wrong that led to this. After awhile I sat up and turned the radio on. I listened to some of my favorite bands. I could feel the sadness that gnawed at my stomach slowly fade. It didn't fade entirely but just enough to calm me down. I was in the car for about an hour and a half before I decided to go back in. I guess I didn't need to drive I just needed to sit.
I slowly put the card in the slot and then pulled it out followed by me opening the door. I saw Katie laying in bed looking so innocent. She had slightly tear stained cheeks along with a gentle shade of pink on them. I knew she felt sad but if didn't think she would cry. I lingered over and took off my pants and shirt. I slipped the covers over me and turned towards Katie. I wrapped my arms around her waist and kissed her neck.
By the time me and Luke made it to the cottage it was about 10pm and I was still wide awake. I got out of the car and walked over to Luke's side. "Luke can me and Austin stay at your cottage I mean ours are still under investigation?" I asked fiddling with my hair. "Yah where is Austin anyways?" He asked. "Your grandma is watching him, my grandma went back to her place about 12 hours away." I replied.
When I entered the door Austin ran up to me and gripped onto me for dear life. Tears came flooding out of his eyes as though they were running faucets. The sight of him crying brought tears of my own. I picked him up and embraced him into a hug. "What's going on?" He asked confused, I couldn't blame him. "I tell you in the morning." I said as I placed him the couch covering him with a blanket. I too felt broken down. This place is bitter sweet. It has so many beautiful memories, but just a day ago one of my best friends just got stabbed by my father.
I tugged on Luke's hand and we walked towards his room. I sat in his bed and pulled off my shirt and pants. "Whoa what'cha doin there?" He smirked. "This is how I sleep. You know that!" I laughed. I grabbed Luke's torso pulling him towards me. He slipped on his way causing him to awkwardly land on me. He laid on top of me with his one hand placed on my boob. I could feel couloir rise to my cheeks. Luke on the other hand just starred at me goofily. I smiled, playfully pushing him off. I sat there looking at Luke as he tugged at his shirt slowly taking it off followed by his pants. Now he stood in his grey and red boxers. And to be honest I was turned on.
Once he realized I was starring we both started blush. Me mostly. I let out a small sigh and dramatically flopped back onto the bed. Luke made his way next to me, and then proceeded to intertwine our fingers. I looked over to see him already starring at me. I nervously bit my lip, not knowing how far I would go tonight. He slowly propped up his body and knelt over me. He slightly tugged at my shirt bringing me up and then kissed me. He skimmed his tongue on the bottom of my lip, asking for entrance. Of corse I let him in. With the kiss getting more intense he slid his hands up my back, and started to unhook my bra. I tensed as the last hook came undone but then relaxed letting like hold me up and presume the kiss. He slowly trailed down my neck until he reached his destination. I let out a soft moan only for Luke to suck harder. I slid my hands down to waist softly pulling down his boxers. He did the same to me. With his sucking getting more intense and slightly painful, I guided his mouth back up to my lips with my finger. I slowly laid back looking up and down at Luke. He looked at me knowing I was over for the night and the laid down next to me. I snuggled up to his body. So now here we laid our warm, fully exposed bodies, laying next to each others.
I slowly fluttered my eyes. I looked down to see a muscular arm wrapped around my waist. I then turned my head slighty and peck Calum's temple. He looked so peaceful, just lying there. His hair was still soft from his shower yesterday, and his nose slightly crinkled. I could feel his grip around my waist tighten as he shifted a little to the left. He let out a soft groan and then relaxed again. I let out a quite giggle.
I grabbed his hand and slowly pried it off of me trying not to awake him. I stood up and headed for the shower. I took off my clothes and grabbed my toothbrush. And yes I brush my teeth in the shower. Most people think it weird or disgusting but in my eyes it just saves time.
I grabbed my towel and wrapped it around my body. I opened the bathroom door to see Cal sitting on the bed dressed in a polo shirt and kaki shorts. "Why are you so dressed up?" I giggled. "I want to take you out!" He exclaimed. We're were we going? I mean he finds out his father died and now he's so happy. I put on my clothes I had on yesterday, seeing that's all I brought. Then I brushed out my hair. Which I now let it go to my natural shade, which is a dull blonde. And let my natural waves consume my hair. By now I've kept Calum waiting for an hour and I could tell he was getting impatient.
We arrived at Nando's at took our seat. Cal was impatiently tapping on the table, waiting for the good to arrive. I laughed at his cuteness as he flipped his hair. I let out a small smile and a little laugh. Our food arrived, and man did it look delicious.
I woke to slight breeze. Then I realized why. I looked over to were Luke was last night, but he wasn't there. I got up and put on some clothes. I didn't have any oh my own so I grabbed my Good Charlotte tank top, and some black leggings. I walked out to kitchen to find Luke cooking pancakes. I snuck behind him and quickly wrapped my arms around his waist. "What the!" He yelled. "Hi!" I cheered. "Oh hi beautiful!" He said before kissing my temple. There was a long pause before I said "let's do something today."
"I don't know. Just nothing fancy." I exclaimed.
I could feel myself being lifted off the ground as Luke carried me bridal style. He carried me down the dock and starred at me with his ocean blue eyes. I smiled as I lifted my hand and ran it threw his ragged hair. He bent down and kissed me. As he pulled away he left a sheepish grin on his face. My eyes widened. "Luke I swear, don't you da...." Just then he dropped my in the freezing water. When I came up for air, he still had that sheepish grin. But that soon faded as he laughed hysterically. He put out his hand to help me up. I pushed his hand away and hopped up on the dock. "Your cute when your mad!" Luke laughed. I walked up behind him and sat behind him. "What'cha doin?" He questioned. "Rubbing you back." I replied. I placed my hands on his back. Instead of rubbing I pushed him forward. He flopped in the water like a little fish. Well BIG fish. When he came up I mimicked him and gave a sheepish grin. "Am I still cute?" I said cocking my eyebrows. "The cutest!" He laughed. I playfully rolled my eyes. "Your so cheesy."
Luke hopped up on the dock and dried off. He sat down beside me. I laid my head on his slightly damp shoulder. My eyes slowly dripped. "Hey, what's wrong?" Luke said looking down at me. I sat up and wiped away my tears. "I'm... I'm lea-leaving." I stuttered. "What do you mean?" He said in a cracked voice. "I me-an, I'm lea-ving to a fost-er family, it's li-ke, four-teen hou-rs aw-ay." I said breathing heavy. Luke wrapped me in a hug. "It's okay.. Shh. It's ok." He cooed in my ear.
