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?


63. What a Playboy

Kalei's POV

When Jaden finally got out of the bathroom, we went outside and waited for the bus to pick us up. Or so she thinks. I slowly pulled out my phone as she listened to Fly Away through her earbuds.

KaleiBae: lukeee

PenguinHemmo: yeah

KaleiBae: where r u

PenguinHemmo: school

KaleiBae: dont u think you forgot something

KaleiBae: more like someONE

PenguinHemmo: omg im so sorry i forgot ill be right there

PenguinHemmo: r u with J

KaleiBae: yeah

PenguinHemmo: ...

PenguinHemmo: be there in a few

I turned off my phone and put it in my pocket. The bus came up to us and waited for us to get on. Jaden stood and I pulled her back down. Tim gave me a weird look and I waved him off, signaling him to keep moving. He nodded, closed the door with a slam, and drove off. Jaden looked at me like I was crazy. I looked back at her and gave her a small smile.

5 minutes later, Luke's car pulled up. I grabbed Jaden's hand again and pulled her to the backseat. She got excited and hopped in, but went silent as she saw a beautiful caramel-color-eyed, kinda-sorta pale, skinny brunette. I held in a snicker as I saw Jaden mouth "female doggg" to me. I hopped in the passenger seat and closed the door. Looking over at Luke, he startled me when I noticed he was already looking at me.

"May I help you?" I giggle.

"Not really, no. To be honest with you I don't even know why I was looking at you." Luke shrugged.

"Because you like meeeee," I sang and pushed my shoulder against his.

"Not anymorrrrreeee," Luke sang back. "I got a date." He popped the "d" and the "t" in "date". "Kalei, Jaden, meet Alyssa."

I turned around to meet face-to-face with the unknown girl in the backseat. She flashed a smile at me and I smiled back. I turned around again and pushed on Luke's knee to accelerate his car. We were off on the road.

"So, Alyssa. How did you meet Luke?" I try to start a conversation.

"Well, we've been friends... somewhat. We knew each other's names and stuff but never really anything about each other." Alyssa's voice was kind of high-pitched for a high-schooler.

"It's ok, Lissa. She can know. I would've ended up telling her anyway," Luke said to Alyssa from the front seat, still not taking his eyes off of the red light we were at.

"Ok. Luke and I have been really good friends for a while now. I liked him but didn't want to tell him cos my friends would tell me he's a playboy," Alyssa said blankly.

"What?" Luke's shocked voice and expression made me laugh. "It's not funny!"

I gave him a face as a tried not to laugh even more. "But we both know that's not quite true." I smirk as he rolls his eyes and turns his head back to the road.

"Why would you say Luke's a playboy? Is it cos of his lip ring?" I smirk.

"Lip ring? My lip ring is-"

"Or is it cos of his blond, boyband-style quiff?" Jaden snickered.

"Boyband style?!"

A buzz from my leg made me jump. I pulled out my phone and realized Michael texted me. Unlocking my phone, I begin to type a reply.

MichaelGClifford: how dare you use the b-word in lukes presence

KaleiBae: how did u know

MichaelGClifford: i know everything ;)

KaleiBae: ...

KaleiBae: stalker :P

MichaelGClifford: but u know u love it ;)

KaleiBae: ya nasty

MichaelGClifford: c u at school

KaleiBae: ...

KaleiBae: c u next tuesday aHAHAHAHAHAA

I shove my phone back into my pocket before Michael has a chance to respond. Luke looked at me with a smirk and I saw him fumble his phone under his bum. I make a noiseless gasp and try a serious face.

"Luke Robert Hemmings... You told him, didn't you?" I shake my head at him. My phone buzzed and I whipped it out of my pocket to read the next text.

MichaelGClifford: thats right baby

I roll my eyes and sigh with a smile. "Tell Michael to stop texting me." Another buzz.

MichaelGClifford: neverrr

I smile again. "Ok. Tell Michael that I'm breaking up with him cos he doesn't appreciate me and my concerns. He can forget about the Winter Formal."

MichaelGClifford: WHOA WHOA WHOA ok i find it highly offensive that after all ive done 4 u u think i dont appreciate u

MichaelGClifford: its against our schools rules to dump someone on the day of a dance

KaleiBae: i guess im a rebel ;)

MichaelGClifford: i hate u >:(

KaleiBae: luv u 2 ^3^

"Where is Michael? I know you can't text that fast," I say to Luke.

"Ok, first of all, rude. Second of all- haha- he's in the trunk. He can hear everything we say," Luke laughed and turned a corner. I watched as the school came into view.

"But seriously, Alyssa. I do want to know why you guys thought he was a playboy. I just find the thought really funny," I say honestly.

"He does have a reputation as the 'bad boy'. But yeah, the lip ring and quiff kinda add to it. Plus, he kinda looks like one too, no offense. I mean, the sky blue eyes along with his bleach-ish blond hair... He has the same, like, body shape of a bad boy, I guess. His shoulders don't help him. They're inhumanely broad. As broad as the horizon."

"Now you guys are just being mean," Luke pouted.

"Hey," Jaden began, "look on the bright side: a reputation of 'bad boy' makes the good girls like you and other boys afraid of you. Plus you're in a popular band, so there are extra girls wanting you."

"That makes me feel so much better," Luke chuckled sarcastically. "We're here."

We pulled up to Luke's everyday parking spot and hopped out. I immediately walked up to the trunk and popped it so it was still closed, but I could flick it open in the blink of an eye.

"Michaellll...." I sang quietly, "I'm gonna pop the trunk now."

"No, no wait, my eyes just got used to the darkness in here, don't pop the truNK DON'T POP THE TRUN- AHHHH," Michael screamed from inside as I flew open the top, revealing him to the bright sun. Michael hissed as he buried himself deeper inside Luke's car, avoiding the blinding light. I laughed and crawled in with him. When I got inside, I closed the trunk so it was dark inside. I guess Michael didn't hear me come in, because he didn't say anything for like 10 seconds. "Uh, K? You can open the trunk now." I stifled a giggle and didn't say anything. "K? Kalei? Kalei! Open the trunk! Open the trunk I'm gonna be late for school! K!"

"Hi-" I was cut off by Michael's startled scream.

"Oh my god, Kalei! Oh my god... oh my god..." Michael was panting and I giggled. I wrapped my arm around him and he did the same, pulling me closer. When he recovered, he said, "Well, as long as you're in here I don't mind being late." I pushed on his chest.

"You're a bigger playboy than Luke," I teased.

"Pfff, nahh," Michael sighs as he pulls me into his neck and chest. My nose just barely rested on the crook of his neck. I felt my hair shake as Michael breathed into it.

"Don't fall asleep on me, Clifford. We may be in the dark, but we're also in a car. At school. In the daytime," I whisper as I close my eyes hypocritically.

"You're one to talk. I can see your eyes closed."

"But I can manage my sleep patterns, unlike you."

"Shut up and kiss me..."

"Demanding, are we?" I laugh. He puts his hand behind my head and pulls me up to his face. Slowly, he drives my lips into his, and I don't fight.
