I set up all of the things we'll need for the party. Perfect. I smile at Ashton once he asks what I'm doing." How would you like to go to a party?",I ask. He nods excitedly. "Here",I say. He gives me a devilish grin. Well that's a yes. I continue setting out alcohol.
"Charlie? Why is there a giant panda in your room?",I hear Luke ask,stumbling down the stairs. I shrug. Michael most likely. He stops my hand from pouring alcohol into another cup. "What the hell are you doing!",he demands. He. Looks. Pissed!!!
"Didn't Ash tell you? We're having a party!",I giggle,trying to ease the tension in the room. I set down the bottle and look him in his ocean blue eyes. He shakes his head. Here comes the storm.
"No.",he says. He just says a flat out 'no'.
"Because I said so."
"Excuse you? You are not my father! My father is Marcus Dawn. And I will not be treated like a dog! Do you hear me?",I yell. He nods. I realize I just talked about my father again. Mistake on my part." Good.",I say,filling up more cups.
"I thought you and I were okay now. I was wrong. Bye, Charlie.",he says and storms off.
"Oh yeah. I'm gonna be doing A LOT of drinking tonight." I sit back and wait for everyone to come.
A lot of people are at this party. It's crazy. I take a lamp from some guy on the couch. I look around and spot Mikey. "Mike,you seen Luke?",I ask. He shakes his head and continues making out with the blonde on his lap. I groan. "Where is he?!".
I go back to the kitchen and throw away the many beer bottles scattered everywhere. Thank god I'm not drunk. I sit and look out into the sea of people dancing and try to find Luke. Then I see him. What I see breaks my heart.
He's making out with some girl who's trying to take off his beanie and play with his hair. I gasp. I look anywhere but at them. Alcohol. That's what I need. I grab a full cup and stare at Luke. I'm drinking to ease the pain. I'm drinking to forget. I down it and wince when the cool liquid burns my throat. I grab another cup and things start to look fuzzy.
I get on top of the counter and yell at everyone to be quiet and stop the music. "Guess what?!",I yell.
"It's my party!!". I dance around in a circle and try to keep my balance. And then I see Mr. Heartbreaker himself. "Oh,look! It's Luke Hemmings. He's a new rock star so he can fuck over everyone's feelings, especially his best friends!",I yell. Luke comes up to the counter. He must be the sober one.
"Charlie,get down!",he demands. I shake my head.
"You don't me tell what to do!",I yell. Wait,there was something wrong with that sentence. Oh,well. I kick at his hand as he tries to grab my leg.
"EVERYONE OUT!!!", Luke yells. People rush out,including Ash, Cal, and Mikey. "Not you three." They sit on the couch. I step down and collapse onto the floor. I cry. It feels good to cry. Luke bends down and looks me in the eye. "Char, you don't have to act out to let me know you're hurting. I know.",he says. I break down and sob.
"I'm so sorry, Lucas! I just saw you with that girl and... I got so mad!!! I wanted to forget you. I wanted to forget everything.", I admit. Oh,I can talk fine now?! He nods and carries me up the stairs.
"I need help!",I say. He nods and helps me put on pajamas. He tucks me in and smiles.
"Get some sleep.",he says softly,kissing my forehead. He turns to leave.
"Wait! Please don't leave me again!".
