Absent dreams

"I'm in a band, but, we kinda suck.."
"Oh you do now do you? Let me be the judge of that. I'll see you at seven.."

Chasity's POV

"I think I'm just gonna stay here, I don't need to go home to Holden, he said I could stay right?" I slipped off ashton's coat and lazily threw it over the back of the couch in their living room.

"Yeah, you wanna crash with me?"

I thought to myself a moment before replying, "nah, I think I'll just take the couch, I've slept on it enough to know how to get a good nights sleep on it" I laughed.

"You sure? I can take the couch and let you at the bed if you want"

I stayed silent, he smiled and took that as a yes, laughing as he brought me upstairs. "You can grab a shirt out of my drawer if you want something else, and I think a pair of sweats are hanging in the bathroom. Might be Luke's"

"Thanks," I smiled and he gave a wave, closing the door behind him before I heard his footsteps decending down the steps.

I grabbed a tee shirt out of his drawer and slipped off the outfit I was wearing, snuggling up under the comforter on his bed. Drifting off to sleep a lot quicker than I thought I would.


"Hey" I mumbled, still half asleep and taking a seat next to Ashton on the couch, which was now a mess thanks to the rough sleeper he is.

"Hey, how'd you sleep?"

"Really good actually, I'm gonna say that based off the looks of this couch your night wasn't as good as mine?" I laughed.

"Wasn't bad actually," he leaned back and threw an arm over the back of the couch behind me, "you know it's like 11:30 right?"

"Oh my god Holden's gonna flip-"

"Nah you're good I called him, figured you needed the sleep we were out late last night"

"Yeah probably fucking in the-" Michael took the corner from the stairs, eyes widening at the sight, "oh it's not Luke, I thought it was Luke, you two weren't fucking right"

"No" I laughed.

"Does Luke know you're here? He's still in his room is he mad at you?"

"I don't think he's mad at me, I also don't think he knows I'm here but as far as I'm concerned I'm fine with it staying that way"

"Oh so you guys ARE fighting"

"No we aren't fighting I just haven't talked to him since we went shopping and I don't think I want to because what even do I say?" I sighed and got up, heading for the kitchen to make myself something to eat.

"You can't hide forever!" I heard Ashton yell from the living room.

I just rolled my eyes and went over to the fridge.

"Oh now this is a view I could get used to seeing first thing when I wake up" I heard Calum's voice, raspy and still half asleep.

He came over behind me, stopping to place a playful smack to my ass and wrap his arms around my torso. "If you don't put some pants on you're going to have a very emotional Luke down here. I'm helping you out by standing behind you ya know, I think he's in the living room now" he got quieter by the last part.

"You just needed an excuse to smack my ass you dipshit" I laughed.

"Okay I can't deny that" he laughed as well, reaching over my head to grab the milk off the top shelf.

After breakfast, and a very deep conversation with him as well, it was almost 12:30 so I figured I'd need to be going home some time soon. I tried to be as discrete as I could while passing through the living room, not trying to draw attention from Luke who was now sitting where I was just an hour ago.

I didn't work.

"I didn't know you were here, thought cal had some girl when I saw ya with him?"

I bit into my lip slightly and slowly turned to face him, "uh yeah I spent the night"

"You were the lump on the couch?" He laughed.

"No, more like I was the lump in Ashton's bed"

His mouth formed an 'O' and I took that as a good time to run my little ass upstairs to put some pants on and collect my shit and get the hell out.

I mumbled a quiet "thanks for last night, I had fun" and gave Ashton a wave before opening the door and walking as fast as I could without literally running away from their house.

"Ya know, if you don't like me like everyone says you do, you could just tell me. You don't have to get with Ashton to make a point" I heard a voice, the crack in it told me it was Luke.

"I didn't do it to throw it in your face Luke," I turned to face him now, "I didn't even know if you were home last night, he called me and came to get me"

"Even better, you thought you could be secretive about it because I wasn't home, where'd he take you? I heard you guys get home pretty late"

"We just went out, why do you care so much? As far as I know me and you aren't exactly on the most solid of terms right now because I don't know what to do"

"About what?" he came closer to me now.

"You know exactly what, you think I meant to not say anything to you? No. I was in pure shock that I had even heard you say it. I thought I was imagining it"

"Because it's something that would never happen, right?"

"Because it's something I've been dreaming of since I met you, like actually met you and actually know who you are now, not just some boy in a band that I love"

"And what do you mean by that?"

"Luke, I've been here what, 3 months? I know more about you than I did before I met you, the difference being that I actually know things that matter, versus what I knew as a 'fan' who just wanted to even be noticed by you on social media"

He closed the distance between us, "why don't you tell me something more you learned throughout this journey, eh?"

Then he kissed me.

Those lips were good for far more than just singing.
