Nothing After Midnight

Krista Jenkins had an great life. She was great in school, she was great at sports, and she was great at singing. Despite all these accomplishments, she felt that she was just another face in the crowd.

Until she met the one person that would change her life forever.


5. Band Rehearsal 🎸

A/N: Hey guys! I cannot thank you all enough for the response I'm getting! I'm so glad you all like it. :3 So, here we go!

Krista's POV

Natalie and Sofie start laughing about something as we walk along towards Luke's house, where band practice is going to be held.

"So, did you like, make out?" Natalie asks, causing Sofie to crack up.

I roll my eyes. "Who do you think I am? No, we kinda just hung out and cuddled. Maybe we kissed once or twice..."

Natalie gives a large grin. "Two couples already..."

I laugh, and we continue walking.


After a few minutes, we reach Luke's house. We ring the doorbell, and Luke himself opens the door. I faintly hear dog barking at the other end of the house. Luke looks at Sofie intently, like she's heaven on earth. She stares back awkwardly, her cheeks more red than a tomato. Meanwhile, Natalie gazes at Luke, her eyes pained.

Mikey runs up, shoving Luke.

"Say something, idiot! They're your guests!" Mikey snaps. "Except for Krista, she's mine." Mikey adds, before pulling me to his hip. I look up at his blue-green eyes, scrunching my nose.

"Who said I was yours?" I tease, earning a holler from Natalie.

Mikey laughs, heat rising to his cheeks.

Luke leads us through the house to a room towards the back, where Calum sat with Alyssa on his lap. The other boy, with obviously flat-ironed blonde hair and a great smile sits on a drum box. (A/N: I don't know what it's called... 😹)

Mikey sits on a chair and grabs his guitar. I sit on the other side of the room with Sofie, Natalie, and Alyssa.

"Ashton, Calum, this is my girlfriend Krista." Mikey introduces me with a gesture of his hand, and I wave.

Ashton and Calum politely greet me with nods.

Mikey picks up his guitar and strums it a few times.

"We're going to play a song we just wrote, so it's probably not going to be good." Mikey explains, and I shake my head.

"I'm sure it's going to be great." I say with a smile, before he begins to play.

The intro was amazing, and Luke began to sing.

"Tonight we're fading fast,

I swear we'll make this last,

If I could, say the things that I wanna say,

I'd find a way to make you stay, I'd

Never let you get away,

Get in all these games we play, so

Go ahead rip my heart out, show me what love's all about

Go ahead rip my heart out!

That's what love's all about!"

Then all of the guys begin to sing.

"I want you to want me this way,

And I need you to need me to stay,

If you stay that you don't feel a thing,

If you don't know, let me go, oh, oh, oh woah oh!"

They repeat the lyric a few times before Calum begins singing the second verse very fast, and Alyssa's eyes shine with tears.

"If you don't know, let me go!"

After the last lyric and the instruments fade, I begin to clap. They were amazing.

Sofie and Natalie both look at Luke in awe while Alyssa walks to Calum.

"You guys were incredible." Alyssa compliments, before pecking Calum on the lips and returning to her seat.

Mikey furrows his brows playfully. "Why don't I get a kiss?" I stick my tongue out in retaliation.


The boys continue to play other songs, while also goofing off a lot. I had heard them all a dozen times before, but every time I listened to them play, it was an entirely new experience.

After the guys stop, Luke walks over to Sofie and asks her if she wants to stay over after everyone leaves. Sofie immediately agrees, and Luke leans in to kiss her. I hear Natalie mumble something like, "I better get going.".

She quickly exits the house, right as Sofie and Luke begin making out.

"Get a room!" Mikey yells, before our hands intertwine. He pulls me away towards the front door, and we begin walking down the street in the direction of my house. Natalie was no where to be seen.

"Hey, are you alright? You look really worried." Mikey asks me. I smile back at him.

"Yeah, but I think that Natalie... I don't know. Never mind." I reply, and Mikey pulls me closer, reassuring me.

We continue walking along, all the way to my house, and he kisses me passionately before saying goodbye and going home.

Feeling uncontrollably happy, I walk inside and up to my room, checking my social media before deciding to go to sleep.

As I huddle into my covers, my phone starts beeping. I lift it to see what's going on.

It Ava Deanto and Eva.

Ava texted me:

Do you know where Natalie is? She hasn't been answering her phone.

Eva texted me:

Sofie isn't answering her phone. Do you know where she is?

A/N: Okay, so there we go! What's going on with Natalie and Sofie? We'll see! I hope you all enjoyed it!
