Chapter 8


Vanessa’s P.O.V


The music was still hammering through the speakers and it really started getting too much. I didn’t feel well, in fact I felt kind of sick. And then I just kissed Luke even though I only want him as a friend. Or do I? I don’t even know anymore. I looked around my room and smiled. It’s like my own little protective shell or something like that.

“Vanessa?” I heard Lori’s voice say from the other side of the door. I opened the door and she looked at me with a worried look.

“I just ran into Luke and he seemed really out of his mind, is something going on?” she asks me. I pull her into my room and close the door. I gave her a long explanation.

“Oh. My. GOD!” she whined and jumped up and down in excitement. I lift my eyebrow and stop her.

“What do you mean? I am such an idiot,” I mumble as I hit myself on the forehead. She grabs my hand and looks me in the eyes.

“Come on! Don’t be like that. Luke kissed with you! That means he likes you” Lori says and I sigh.

“I don’t know. It’s just more that I really just want to be his friend.” I mumble and look down at my hands.

“Think about it. He’s a good guy” she says before standing up and leaving my room. I sigh and look out my window. A few people were walking around in front of the house.

“LISTEN EVERYBODY!” I heard Luke’s voice yell from downstairs. I got up and out on the staircase to see what was going on. I look and see Luke with a microphone.

“We are going to play a little game. Grab a partner and a balloon and then you are going to put it on you’re forehead and dance a whole song through like that. The couple that doesn’t drop it or stop dancing wins” he says before handing out balloons to everyone. I sit onto the staircase and look at everyone.

“Will you dance with me?” Lori asks me and I giggle. I run down next to her and she blows air into the balloon and ties the end.
“Did you hear the rules?” she asks me and I nod. We got the balloon ready and waited for Luke to say go.

“GO!” he said and a song came on. I started dancing if felt really weird, but I was glad I was doing it with Lori though. A minute into the song it started getting hard. I tried to balance, but I fell and we dropped the balloon.
“Dang it!” I groan and Lori laughs at me while helping me up. I gave her a smile before she went to get some soda. I looked around and my eyes landed on Luke and a girl. My heart started beating really fast and I tried to calm it down. Luke was dancing with someone else. He laughs at something she says and I gulp. I hold my hand onto my stomach. I turn around and walk out in the kitchen. I grabbed the vodka bottle and opened it. I looked over at the cup and shrugged. I drank about the same amount it would have been in two glasses. I dropped the bottle, because I started to feel bad. I fell to the ground and hit my head into the kitchen counter.

“VANESSA!” I heard someone yell and I looked up and saw Luke running towards me. I closed my eyes and everything went black.


“Vanessa” a low voice said. I tried to open my eyes.

“I think she is awake guys” another voice says and I finally open my eyes. I look around in the blurriness and see four faces in front of me.

“Vanessa!” a voice yelled and I got a bit scared. My eyes slowly turned back to normal and now I could see that it was Amanda, Lori, Courtney and Luke.

“What happened?” I ask them and they look at each other.

“You fell onto the ground in the kitchen and hit your head” Luke says and then everything comes back to me. I remember now. The girl Luke was dancing with. Me getting jealous. Wait what? I didn’t get jealous what am I saying. I could still hear low music so I am guessing it is still the same day. I looked around and found out that I was in Luke’s room.

“Do you want us to tell everyone to leave?” Amanda asks and I quickly shake on my head.

“No of course not! I feel better already” I lie as I get up. I try to hide how hard it is for me to stand on my legs.
“Are you sure?” Luke asks and I lift my eyebrow.

“Why so worried Hemmings?” I ask in a teasing voice before leaving the room. If Luke wants to make me jealous with another girl I can make him jealous too. I looked around on all the people. I saw Martin and went straight to him. He looked at me with big and scared eyes. I grab him by the neck and pull him into a hot kiss. A few people around us turned around to look at us.

“Vanessa” he mumbled and I let go of him. I turned around and saw Luke and all the other girls. They were staring at me as if I just did the most stupid thing ever. Martin turned me around and kisses me very hard. I got pulled away from the kiss from someone behind me.

“Ouch, ouch, ouch, OUCH!” I mumbled as the person took me away. We stop and the person let go. I turn around and see Courtney.

“What the hell was that?” she yells at me and I look down at the ground.

“Vanessa answer me.” She says in a mad tone and I gulp. I pull her with me out in the backyard and see only a few people out here.

“I-I saw Luke dancing with another girl under the game thing with the balloon and he laughed at something she said. So I decided to make Luke jealous if I kissed someone while he watched” I reply in a shy voice and look down at the ground.

“WHAT THE HELL VANESSA? That is not okay. You have been running around all night and kissing so many different boys. Luke has fun with one girl that isn’t you and you get jealous immediately” She yells at me and I gasp. She did not say that.

“I AM NOT JEALOUS!” I yell at her and stamp in the ground.

“If you weren’t you wouldn’t care. You have to decide if you want Luke or not. If you don’t you gotta let him flirt with other girls Vanessa” she tells me with sad eyes. I look down at the ground before running the opposite way and out of the front door. I see a few people passed out on the grass and some couple making out, maybe even more. I breathe in the chill night air. I can still smell a bit of the alcohol in the air. I fall onto the grass and sigh.

“Stupid heels” I mumble as I take of my high heels and throw them onto the grass. I get up and walk out onto the street. It was so late that not even the street lamps were on anymore. I felt a hand on my wrist so I quickly turn around and saw someone. I couldn’t see the person.

“Relax now love, I just want to show you something,” a dark voice whispers. I gulp as I try to walk away, but the person pulls me with him.

“Please leave me alone” I mumble as I try to get away. The person drags me away from my house in a slow tempo.

“Please no I’m a virgin,” I then say. I don’t really know why I said it. I actually feel kind of embarrassed now because I said that.

“That’s even better” the voice whispers into my ear. I feel the warm breathing on my neck and it gave me goose bumps.

“I just want to go home” I tell the person and a low laugh escapes his mouth.

“I’m sure you do. We are far away now, I can do it here” he says and pushes me up against the car. The person attaches his lips to mine and I feel something cold against my lip as if it was a lip ring. It can’t be Luke. Is it? What! NO!

“Stop” I mumble into the kiss and try to push him away. I then feel a hand on the back of my dress just like earlier with Cody. While he stops kissing me I get the chance to yell help so I do.

“HELP! HELP!” I yell really loud and look around to see if anyone is coming. I feel first a big amount of pain in my cheek that starts to get warm. Did the person slap me? I wasn’t really sure.

“Shut the fuck up whore” the voice says and I gasp. Whore? I feel a tear in the corner of my eye. It runs down my warm cheek and I gasp again.

“D-don’t call me that” I mumble in a low voice as I try to get away again. He keeps me up against the car in a hard grip.

“What’s going on?” a familiar voice asks and I look to my right and see a shadow of a person.

“Hel..” I started, but the guy in front of me put a hand onto my mouth.

“We’re fine. Just go” the dark voice says and I start crying again.

“I’m not sure you’re girl thinks so” the other person replies and that’s when I realize it’s Calum. I bite into the person’s hand and he let go of me. I run away from him and over to Calum. I grab his hand and run back to the house. I fall down onto the grass when we get to that point. Running when you are drunk is not exactly the best combination.

“Vanessa?” Calum asks and I smile, while catching my breath.

“Thank you Cal” I tell him and stand up. I pull him into a tight hug and send him a smile even though he probably couldn’t see that.

“Are you okay? Did the guy hurt you? Do you have any bruises?” he asks in a worried tone and I smile.

“I’m fine. Nothing happened” I reply and grab his hand. I walk up to the front door and immediately feel my eyes starting to burn, because of the completely dark turning into bright lights. I looked at Cal and he gave me a smile. I let go of him and thank him a last time before looking for the girls. I find them in the kitchen, talking with each other.

“Vanessa! We were so worried about where you were” Amanda says in a surprised tone and I nod. I sit onto a bar chair and give them a short explanation.
“You are not exactly the lucky girl tonight” Lori says and I shrug. I guess I’m not. I hear a known laugh behind me and I turn around and see Luke and the same girl from before. They are standing really close to each other, what a bitch she is. I turn around the opposite way and grab the vodka bottle, but then Clare takes it from me.

“No Vanessa. No more alcohol for you” she says with a smile and I groan. I stick my tongue out at all the girls.

“You are not my mom!” I reply in an annoyed tone and try to get the bottle from her, but she refuses.

“No, but just because you hate seeing Luke with another girl doesn’t mean you have to drink that problem away.” She replies and put down the bottle on a whole other table. I groan again.

“I don’t care if Luke is with another girl” I mumble and cross my arms. All the girls looks at each other and then at me again.
“You should go to bed, we can take you” Courtney says and I roll my eyes.

“I don’t wanna. I wanna get drunk and party all night” I reply in a very drunk voice. It’s obvious I was really drunk.

“Let’s go” the girls tell me and walk over to me and carry me upstairs. I look at Luke standing with the girl in the mean time as they carry me away. They put me down onto my bed and I grab my blanket and wrap it around me. The girls leave and I sigh. I stood up and walked over to open my window. A little wind flew into my room and caused my hair to storm around. I sat down in front of my window and looked out in the darkness.

“Can I come in?” a voice asks over from the door and I look at it.

“Sure” I reply and the door opens. I see Luke looking at me with worried eyes. He closes the door and walks over to me.

“I just wanted to check up on you and make sure that you were okay. I saw the girls carry you up here” he says to me with a smile and I roll my eyes.

“Why do you care? Shouldn’t you be hanging out with Ms. I can make you laugh?” I mumble and cross my arms. Oh no did I just say that? He’s totally going to know I’m jealous. WAIT NO! I’M NOT JEALOUS.

“Is that what this is about?” he asks in a mad tone and I gulp. I look down at my hands and sigh.

“Is that why you have been acting like this all night? Because I was talking with Bella?” he asks me again and I gulp again.
“Is that her name?” I ask and immediately regret I asked that. Why am I such a dork? Luke rolls his eyes.

“Yes that is her name and she is just a girl I was talking to” he says to me and I look out of the window again.

“Are you jealous?” he asks me and I gulp. My eyes wide I and look at him. My heart starts racing.

“Jealous? No.” I reply in a high tone. I am so freaking bad at lying.

“Vanessa” he mumbles and I look up at him with my eyebrow lifted.

“I li..” Before he could say more I cut him off.

“I really want to be good friends with you” I tell him with a big smile and his eyes turn a bit sad.

“Friends. Right sounds good” he says and I give him a smile. He is about to stand up and leave the room, but I pull him down to me again and he looks at me.

“Please stay here with me, I don’t want to be alone” I beg and he rolls his eyes. I whine in a happy tone, because he said yes. I turn on my laptop and put on some low music. I fell onto my bed and he was sitting on my chair. We kept talking for a couple hours maybe. I learned a lot about him and he knows a lot more about me now. He told me that he like penguins, which is like so freaking cute. I also learned that he plays a bit guitar. Anyways, I know a lot more about Luke now and we have even more in common than we thought. I snuggle up under my blanket and look at Luke standing up and walk over to my door.

“Luke?” I quickly ask before he leaves the room. He stops and looks at me with a smile.

“Yes?” he replies and I sit up and look at him.

“Will you cuddle with me please?” I beg and he nods. He closes the door again and snuggles up under the blanket next to me. He puts an arm around me and to be honest it felt kind of good.

“Goodnight” I mumble and smile. He doesn’t reply, but that’s fine. Half an hour later I was still awake. I was trying to fall asleep, but I couldn’t because I was thinking about Luke. And yes I just said that. I think I am starting to ‘like’ Luke. I feel Luke moving closer to me and a few snores from him. It sounded cute and the warmth of his breathing in my neck only felt even better. I don’t know if this is supposed to feel right or wrong. Either way I am enjoying it and it kind of scares me that I do.
