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.."


32. she's not reading books

Chasity's POV

"Luke's taking me shopping" I muttered as I walked by Holden in the living room on my way to the door.

"Did you even ask Ashton?"

"Uh yeah.. He's recording today, why do you care you said either of them"

"I shoulda known you'd just go crawling right to Luke"

I rolled my eyes and turned the handle to the front door, clearly over this conversation.


I turned my head to Luke sitting in his car out front, holding up one finger, silently telling him I need one more minute.

"What Holden, Luke is waiting I gotta go"

"If this is just an excuse to hang out with hi-"

"Oh my god when are any of you gonna drop it? Me and Luke don't like each other! I don't like him, he doesn't like me! Get over it"

I didn't give him time to respond before I grabbed my wristlet off the side counter next to the door and put my phone in the front of it, closing the door behind me and heading towards Luke's car.

"What was that about?"

"Holden just can't drop anything"

"Is this about you not supposed to be going out? Oh god is he mad at me? I don't have to take you-"

"Stop rambling, no it's not about that" I laughed cutting him off. "You ramble when you're nervous" I giggled.

"Usually just around you" he muttered under his breath, though I pretended I didn't hear him.

"No he just, even the other boys do it, I mean, of course when I got here I obviously had a thing for you, but I didn't actually know you. It was just me liking some famous dude because I thought he was hot"

He laughed, putting the car in drive and driving towards the mall. "Yeah, I think about 6 million people knew that" you both laughed.

"Yeah, well like, now all they do is just drop things on me and like, tell me we like each other and I'm just sick of it because obviously we don't like each other like that were like best friends now, which is honestly weird to me because I never thought I'd ever even meet you"

"What can I say? I'm pretty hot it's no wonder they think you're in love with m he said with a sarcastic smirk, causing both of us to let out a laugh.


"You hungry? We can get lunch at the food court"

"Yeah, actually" I smiled.

"Okay, warning you, today has been pretty crazy with fans and such as far as I can tell so there's a very likely possibility that we might get swarmed"

"Yeah yeah, Luke I've been friends with you for 4 months, trust me I know" we both laughed.

"Yeah but I also know you don't like big crowds"

"Okay true"

"Just, if we get swarmed don't leave my side okay?" He held his hand out for me to take, I hesitated before taking it and intertwining our fingers together.


He nodded and pulled me towards the food court, girls immediately seeing him, their eyes going wide. I mean, he's like this 6 foot giant it's hard to miss him.

We did our best to just keep watching, stopping so girls could take the occasional picture with Luke, and shockingly enough, a few with myself as well.

"What do you want?" He leaned down and whispered into my ear, the crowd too loud to talk over.

"Hmm" I looked around as best I could.

Though my sentence was cut short. "Oh my god yes they're so cute together ! OTP I love them" some girl shouted, causing several girls to join in and agree.

My brain stopped everything and I just looked up at Luke, the same expression on his face. I avoided the question he was silently asking with his eyes burning into mine. "Uh Panera sounds good right about now" I smiled, and uncomfortable silence falling over us as he gripped my hand tighter and tried to pull us through the rest of the crowd.


"@emmafivesos: Met my favorite people today😍 just date already oh my god !!💘 #OTP @chastity411 @lukehemmings" with a picture of her with me and Luke at lunch. I sighed and liked the picture, making sure to comment something nice back.

"Hey Luke?"


"Thanks for taking me today, I honestly had fun" I smiled at him, turning his head to look over at me from the drivers seat.

"I did too, I'm glad I got to spend the day with you, it's never boring when you're around" he laughed.

The lite sound of music playing in the background took over the car, neither of us knowing what to say. The day had gone slightly awkward after being with all the fans when we got lunch, a few comments about if we were dating or not and both of us shut down.


"Luke" I giggled, causing him to laugh.

"You know, when we went to get lunch uh, a few girls uh.."

"You heard them too? I wasn't gonna bring it up to be honest, I didn't think it really meant anything to you"

"Look, I don't want to make anything awkward but what if they're right? I mean, you said it yourself. Everyone says stuff to us and they obviously see the whole thing better than we do"

"What are you saying Luke?"

"You said earlier that were just like really good friends but everyone kinda says stuff to you about us ever being a thing"

"Yeah, but I figured you know that I like you at least a little bit, you knew that before we even actually met. If you wanted something from it I figured you'd have done something by now, I obviously wouldn't object"

"They don't drop stuff like that on you just to tease you, they do it because" His voice trailed off.

"What Luke? Come on what do they know"

He took a deep breath. "I'd be lying if I said I wasn't crazy about you"

My mouth opened, except nothing came out. My mind was telling me to say all these different things, to at least react to him. But no sound was coming out. I just sat there. Dumbfounded, in the front seat of his car.

"But I was afraid of rejection, because who knows how you felt now that you actually met me and know the real me, not the sugar coated paparazzi version of me"

Still, no sound was coming out.

"I was afraid of exactly this" he sighed, running a hand through his hair.

The rest of the ride was silent, I was too content in texting Michael and trying to figure out what the fuck just happened.

"Thank you, for today I mean. Again" I gave a weak smile before grabbing all my bags and closing the door, heading up the walkway to my front door.
