Not For Me

Kalei has just moved from Washington to Australia to get away from her problems. She thinks she'll never make any friends, and no one will like her. But on her first day of school, someone's major crushing. But what will happen when she's got her eye on his best friend?


52. His Kitten

Kalei's POV

I stomped down the stairs and got ready to bolt out if my house when my family stopped me again.

"So, what do ya think?" My dad asked me. I saw Jaden clasping her hands together in a plea out of the corner of my eye. Why do I still care, I sigh. I plastered on a fake smile, one of my specialties, and spoke.

"About Jaden? Yeah, she's great! How did you guys know I missed her so much!" I jumped up and down.

"I knew you'd be happy but I didn't think you would cry!" My mum exclaimed.

"Babe, they're tears of joy" My dad explained.

"Yeah, joyy. That's why I'm crying" I said through the puddles of water threatening to pour out of my eyes.

"Anyway, where are you going?"

"Just out, to walk around"

"By yourself?"

"Uh yeah by mys- uhh, no, I'm going with, withh... LUKE, yeah, Luke. Were just gonna walk around, hehe"

"Ehh, I don't really trust that Luke boy yet, K. He's in a popular band, he may just be using you" My dad said with a concerned look on his face.

"Ugh, overprotective father alert!"

"We trust you AND Luke," My mum said, "But Jaden has never been to Australia before, you and Luke should show her around. Go on, invite her"

"But mum, this was already-"

"No. We spent a lot if time and money getting your best friend here, you are not going to just leave her!"

Well what about all the times she's left me?!, I wanted to yell.

"Fine." I turned in my heel and went back upstairs.

"So," Jaden said with a shaky voice, "Y-you have a friend named L-Luke? A-and he lives in A-Australia?"

"Yeah. Don't get any ideas, J. Get a jacket and let's go."

I walked out of the house, Jaden right behind me. I knew my family would die if they notice I'm not with Luke. I pull out my phone and text him.

KaleiBae: luke

PenguinHemmo: uh ya

KaleiBae: u doing anything atm

PenguinHemmo: no

PenguinHemmo: why

KaleiBae: wanna walk around syd with me

It took him a while to answer.

PenguinHemmo: sure be there soon

Within 15 minutes, Luke came into view and crossed the street.

"K!" He waved before running and pulling me into a hug.

"Wow, you're in a good mood. I thought you hated me?" I said, pulling him in tight.

"I did, for about five minutes but then I realized you were right. I didn't know you. So, let me learn about you on this little walk" He pulled away and intwined his fingers in mine.

"Don't get any ideas, Lucas" I giggled. He laughed too but stopped as looked behind me.

"Um, who's this?" Luke stared daggers into Jaden.

"This is my- ahem- f-friend, Jaden. Jaden, this is Luke"

Jaden stared in shock. She looked like she was about to faint. I could barely hold in a laugh.

"Y-y-you're Luke- L-Luke Hem-Hemmings" Jaden stuttered.

"And you're turning pale" Luke said, tightening his grip on my hand.

"She's a part of the 5sos fam" I explained. "She's in your lane" I whispered into his ear. He chuckled.

"Ahh. Watch this" Luke snickered. He let go of my hand and walked up to Jaden. He wrapped his arm around her and lightly kissed her cheek. She was turning red. "How 'bout we have some fun tonight" He whispered into her ear. I was so close to bursting into laughter.

"O-okay" Jaden was shaking.

"Perfect" Luke reached for something in his back pocket and took a step back. "Ready?" He held his hands behind his back.

"Yes" Jaden took a step forward, ready to hug him.

"Hiyah!" Luke whipped a blue squirt gun from behind his back and squirted Jaden all over with water. He ran back over to me and started to squirt me.

"Luke, stop!" I laughed. I was surprised he heard me from his laughter.

"Okay" He threw his squirt gun on the ground and picked me up by the waist and slung me over his shoulder. Then he started to run.

I bounced up and down on Luke's shoulder as he ran, watching Jaden laugh as she tried to catch up.

"Lu-u-uke where. are. we. go-i-ing?" I tried to ask.

"You'll see!" He said.

A couple of seconds later and Luke has stopped running. He panted as I heard a doorbell chime.

"I got it, guys" I heard a familiar voice say from the other sir of the door. The door creaked as it opened.

"Hey, Luke!" Michael said. "I see you've brought someone, or two..."

Luke walked inside and put me down as Jaden walked in and closed the door.

"K!" Michael, Calum, and Ashton called from Michael's couch.

"Hey guys! Hey Mikey" I smiled and hugged Michael.

"What about Ashy?" Ashton stood up and trapped me in his strong embrace.

"Haha, hi Ashton" I giggled. "Hey, Cal!" I waved to him from inside Ash's arms.

"Okay, okay, Irwin, you have your girlfriend, I have mine" Michael said as Ashton pulled away and pushed me against Michael.

"So now I'm a ping-pong ball" I laughed.

Jaden stood unsteadily near the front door.

"Oh, sorry. Guys, this is Jaden, my former best friend. She's in shock right now cos her idol, Mr. Luke Hemmings over here, just shot her with a squirt gun. And now she can't believe she's in the same house as-" I faked a gasp, "5 SECONDS OF SUMMER, OH MY GAWD!" I laughed.

"K, when we were at your house you didn't mention being best friends with my favorite band ever" Jaden said through her teeth.

"Oops" I rolled my eyes, cuddling Michael in my arms. I was more in his arms, to be honest.

"K, isn't this the one-sided friend from America who's the whole reason you moved here?" Michael irritatedly whispered into my ear. He tightened his grasp on me.

"Yeah, but don't say anything. Just pretend you've never met her before in your life" I whisper back, too tired from bouncing on Luke's shoulder to explain anything. A quick squeeze on my shoulder told me he understood.

"Okie-dokie. Jaden, this is Michael, Calum, Ashton, and, hehe, Luke." I pulled out of Michael's grasp. I heard him whimper and stifled a giggle.

"Sorry, I'm just trying to process this. C-can someone pinch me?" Jaden cupped her face with her hands.

"Don't mind if I do," Calum stood up and walked over to Jaden. He stared her in the eye, then pinched her butt.

"Calum Thomas Hood! You HAVE a girlfriend! A bully girlfriend, might I add" I crossed my arms.

"Objection!" Ashton stood up. "Cal broke up with Bella after school today. I stared in shock at Calum.

"Yeah, I realized she really was a bully. So I'm free" Calum winked at Jaden and sat back down.

"Calum I swear to god, wink at her again and I'll chop your balls off" I said.

"Can I do the honors?" Luke raised his hand. Michael chuckled.

"Haha, very funny" Calum rolled his eyes. "I would never touch her-"

"You just did, hard" Michael interrupted and I giggled.

"ANYWAYS, I know she's your territory, with her bein' your lesbian girlfriend after all"

"WHAT?!" Jaden, Michael and I yelled at the same time.

"Woah. Things took an unexpected route" Ashton said.

"Calum, I swear on Michael's name-"

"Why's it gotta be my name?" Michael whined.

"Cos it shows how much I love you," I smiled at him. "And how serious I am about chopping Calum's nose off and gluing it to his a-"

"Okay..." Michael covered my mouth. A second later, he ripped it off and screamed at it. "Kalei! Did you just lick my hand?!"

"Haha, you're so childish" I laughed and sat on the couch.

"Hey, three's a crowd" Ashton said.

"'Kay" I quickly hopped on Ashton's lap.

"Ooh, not too bad anymore" Ashton said, reaching for my hand.

"Touch my girlfriend anywhere neck-down and I'll kill you" Michael said harshly and glared at Ashton.

"G-girlfriend?! K, you mean to tell me that you were ticked at me since junior high for telling some dude that you liked him while you're dating THE Michael Clifford?! Do you know how many girls would kill to be in your shoes?!" Jaden yelled.

"Yeah, but I'm not worried. Michael knows not to get any ideas," I clenched my fist at him and smirked. He laughed and returned a bow. "Moving on, do you guys know what tomorrow is?"

"Friday, I know" Ashton sighed. "Can't wait."

"You idiot," Michael walked over and picked me up bridal style. "It's the Winter Formal"

I smiled and buried my face in his chest.

"Everyone's got a date, right?" My voice muffled in Michael's shirt.

"No" Calum and Luke said in unison.

"Cake!! I ship it!" I whip my head from Michael's chest and beam at Cal and Luke.

"No!" Luke said.

"What's wrong with me?" Calum said, I couldn't tell if he was really offended or just faking.

"You're not pretty" Luke chuckled.

"Um, about a quarter of our fans beg to differ" Calum fired back.

"Okay, okay. There's this girl at school that I've had my eye on, even before K got here" Luke blushed.

"Wow. I feel so special" I say sarcastically.

"You don't like me anyways" Luke poked my shoulder. I stuck my tongue out at him. "Anyways, her name is Alyssa. Even her name is just amazing"

"Wow. He's fangirling over some chick at school. Keyword here is HE." Calum laughed.

"I think it's cute. Besides, then things won't be awkward when everyone else is dancing with their dates, cos then Luke will have a girl of his own" I smiled to myself. "I ship it already"

"What about Calum?" Ashton pointed out.

"I'll have you know I've been thinking about a girl too"

"Already? You just broke up with my ex-best friend. That was less than 10 hours ago" I said. "You're such a player"

"Don't forget it" Calum winked. When I felt Michael tense up, I giggled. "Her name is Jenai"

"Weird name" Michael snorted.

"What about your girlfriend, KALEI?"

"Hey..." I pouted.

"Don't diss my kitten"

"Pfft" I couldn't contain my laughter and fell out of Michael's arms onto the floor.

"Snrk" Ashton snickered. "Kitten"

I was laughing so hard, I felt my face turn red. Barely any sound came out, and I was shaking so much, so I'm pretty sure I looked like a retarded chihuahua on crack.

"Haha, very funny." Michael picked me up and steadied me in his arm. "You done yet, KITTEN?" He looked down at me.

"Ahem, y-yeah I'm done now" I smiled to myself.

"Good. Now that you're done, I can do this" He spun me around to face him and, without warning, roughly connected his lips with mine. I pulled away and looked at him, wide-eyed and open-mouthed. I felt my face go red as silence filled the room and everyone's eyes on me. Crumbling under pressure, tears brimmed my eyes. Michael's jaw dropped in guilt as a tear fell down my face.

"I-it's getting late" I blinked. "Jaden, w-we should go now. Say bye and let's go" I walked out and slammed the door.
