I jogged away from Michael and soon I was alone.
I found a spot on the beach and plopped myself down.
I knew I had to get over Kai and Michael seemed like he would make a good friend...
But I felt like I was betraying Kai. A guy sat down beside me.
"Go away Michael!" I said. "I really just want to be alone." "Michael?" the guy asked. "Sorry!" I said, trying to get up and walk away but the blonde guy pulled me back.
"Have you seen him? Michael Clifford that is?" blondie asked. "I've seen A Michael, why?" I asked him.
"We need him to come back on tour with us. We're nothing without him.. Where is he?" blondie asked. "On tour? So you guys wrote a book or something?" I frowned, trying to figure this guy out.
"A book? Ha," he was laughing now. "Yeah," I replied. "Authors go on book tours all the time."
The guy laughed so hard a tear trickled down his face. I was blushing fiercely. "No. For as pretty as you are you're kinda crazy. Do I look like I'd write a book?" "No," I said. "You look like you're on drugs," I lied.
He stopped laughing. "I'm in a band." "Wait, what band?" I asked. He looked Michael's age. Seemed like they could definitely be in a band together.
"A small little banjo playing group people like to call 5 Seconds of Summer. I'm Luke, Luke Hemmings," he said. "Now, Michael?" Luke asked "I don't know where he is," I said honestly.
"And really, I need to go." I stood up and started to leave. "Wait.. at least give me your number so I don't have to look all around town for you" Luke said.
"Fine," I said. "I hope you and your banjo playing friends can work it out between you guys." I turned back around and put my phone number in his phone, and he did the same with mine.
Jennifer from Uber was on her way to pick me up. She was a hard worker apparently. "Are you happy now?" I got into my Uber as Luke smiled.
"I know you know something," he said.
"Bye," I said. Jennifer was breathing heavily for some reason as we pulled away.
"Oh, my, goodness!!!" She said.
"Did Luke Hemings just give you his number?" I laughed at her absurdity.
"Yeah," I said. I was starting to feel better.
