Forgetting Luke

This is a typical love story. You have the protagonist. The new girl at school who's extremely pretty and whatnot, who secretly has depression. Her name is Suzy. You have the hopeless romantic who the protagonist 'falls in love' with. His name is Luke. You have the best friend, called Naomi. The best friends soulmate, Michael. The bullies. The boyfriends friends. Just a load of friends. You have the new home, the dead family member, the 'overprotective' mother who really doesn't care. Then there's the twist. This love story isn't perfect, in fact it might be the opposite of one. This is how Suzy, our protagonist, forgot Luke.

Suzy's Pov~

"Naomi I'm in love. With Ethan. We're over." Michael joked, putting his arm around Ethan.
Naomi wiped away a fake tear before saying: "I thought we had something here! All this chemistry, was it just a lie? And with my own best friend?".
Michael laughed, jumping up and wrapping his arms around her, kissing her head.
"I'll always love you, and only you," I heard him whisper.
She kissed his hand in return. "I love you too, forever and always,"
I turned away from their intimate moment, wishing it was me.
I shouldn't really, but I couldn't help it.
Suddenly I felt a tap on my shoulder.
"Come with me." Luke whispered in my ear, reaching for my hand. I drew back slightly, thinking about what could happen if I went with him.
I raised my head, looking over at Naomi and Michael, before making my decision.
"Where are we going now?"
He grabbed my hands and lead me out of the house, revealing a rusty old truck. Naomi, Michael and the rest of our friends all looked up as the door slammed shut; we laughed as we ran down the driveway.
Luke opened the truck door- that was in desperate need of oiling- letting me inside the passenger seat.
"Sorry about the condition of this old thing, its a little rusty. But I needed it." Luke said, as he jumped into his seat at the wheel.
His newly styled quiff brushed the ceiling of the truck as he started up the engine.

"Where are we?" I asked, stepping out the car and placing my hand above my eyes to block out the bright sunlight. We were in the middle of a deserted road next to a field. Mountains lined the red ombre sky and shone on Lukes perfectly shapes jaw line. Did I just say that?
"Neverland," Luke grinned, holding down a hand to help haul me up onto the open back of the truck. Fairy lights and japanese lanterns lined the windows of the worn, retro car, adding to the warm glow of the setting sun. A vintage radio/speaker sat in a corner, surrounded with candles that were scattered around the edge of the trucks trunk. Luke and his candles.
Orange light was projected at Lukes face as he pressed play on the radio, an unfamiliar song beginning to play.
"She spins and she sways
To whatever song plays,
Without a care in the world" Luke sang softly along, standing opposite me and bowing.
I giggles as I curtsied back, placing my hand in his. He pulled me into his arms, swaying along to the music.
"We danced to this on our prom night," he whispered in my ear. I closed my eyes, imagining the scene.

Flashback (Luke's Pov)~

There she was. In sweatpants and all her glory shining through.
Who said prom had to be big dresses and makeup?
I danced with her like we would never dance again, ignoring the mean stares we were getting. As the song said, she swings and she sways to whatever song plays, without a care in the world.
Well she was my world and nothing would ever change that.
Though, saying that, I'm not being loyal. I'm two faced, I have two worlds and I'm stuck in between.
Suzy or Aliesha?
But that doesnt matter right now. All that matters is her.
Halfway through the song, Suzy whispered in my ear: "Just remember, Luke, this princess doesn't fall asleep,"
I laughed as I remembered the disney conversation we had had earlier.
"That doesn't mean she doesn't get a kiss from her Prince Charming though," She challenged.
" No one likes PDA," I retorted.
Suddenly I felt really bad, like this wasn't good enough for her. 
Soon enough, I found myself apologising.
"I'm sorry your prom isn't perfect," I mumbled, my face hidden in her hair. Guilt was washing over me like a tonne of bricks falling on my head.
Her reaction was unexpected though, as she laughed saying "Perfect? Luke, to say that this right now, right here isn't perfect is the understatement of the century. I just wish I could stay in this moment forever. With you. Always."
A smile spread on my face as I leaned in and kissed her once more, finishing off the dance as the song ended.

End of flashback~

Suzy's Pov~

Tears pricked my eyes at the story he just told me, wishing that I could remember everything. It was intimate moments like these that made me love Luke even more.
Did I just say love?
Suddenly he stopped moving, he stopped speaking and he jumped off the back of the pickup truck, moving to collect something from the front seat.
He returned with a guitar in his hand, the strap resting comfortably on his shoulder.
"Before I begin," Luke started, giving his guitar a tune so that everything was in place, "I just want to say, listen to the lyrics. I may not mean them in the way you think I do,"
He took a deep breath before he began to sing.

"I'm jealous of the rain
That falls upon your skin
It's closer than my hands have been
I'm jealous of the rain
I'm jealous of the wind
That ripples through your clothes
It's closer than your shadow
Oh, I'm jealous of the wind, 'cause

I wished you the best of
All this world could give
And I told you when you left me
There's nothing to forgive
But I always thought you'd come back, tell me
All you found was heartbreak and misery
It's hard for me to say,
I'm jealous of the way
You're happy without me

I'm jealous of the nights
That I don't spend with you
I'm wondering who you lay next to
Oh, I'm jealous of the nights
I'm jealous of the love
Love that wasn't here
Gone for someone else to share
Oh, I'm jealous of the love, 'cause

I wished you the best of
All this world could give
And I told you when you left me
There's nothing to forgive
But I always thought you'd come back, tell me
All you found was heartbreak and misery
It's hard for me to say,
I'm jealous of the way
You're happy without me

As I sink in the sand
Watch you slip through my hands
Oh, as I die here another day
'Cause all I do is cry behind this smile

I wished you the best of all this world could give
And I told you when you left me
There's nothing to forgive
But I always thought you'd come back, tell me
All you found was heartbreak and misery
It's hard for me to say,
I'm jealous of the way
You're happy without me

It's hard for me to say,
I'm jealous of the way
You're happy without me"

I ran into his arms and cried until I had no more tears to shed.
When I looked up to see tears running down his cheeks, the overwhelming pain of sadness taking over. 
"I understand, Luke. I understand everyword you said and I'm so so sorry that it happened." I sobbed, leaning my head against his chest.
His head dropped onto mine, my cries finally getting right to his heart. He burst into tears, the loud sobbing, ringing in my ears.
We had never been this close before.
Then, like a flash of lightning or the snap of the fingers, something clicked in my brain.
I saw myself sat with Luke on his bed, crying into his chest as I told him about Maia.
I leapt back, clutching my heart as I was out of breath.
"What is it? What did I do wrong?" Luke said bewildered, bloodshot eyes wild.
"It's not you, I just… I remembered something," I whispered looking down.
I explained to him what I saw as he hugged me in joy.
Maybe this is the start of an old beginning.
