14. The Grand Gesture

Charlie's POV:

I began calming down as I saw the boys running down the street towards me. 

"Thank God you're okay." Calum said with relief as he pulled me into his arms.

"We had no idea, Charlie." Ashton breathed with sincerity, referring to what happened at the party.

"Why aren't you guys finishing the movie?" I asked.

"We couldn't stand to be in the same room with Amber after the way she treated you." Ashton explained.

"I told you she was more bearable with you there." Calum whispered close.


After five minutes of walking, we saw Luke making his way in our direction. 

"Charlie-" He started. "Can we talk?"

"I'm not in the mood Luke." I shot back.

"Please." Luke begged. 

"You have until we get back to my house." I concluded. 

"Well, I don't know how to say this but-" He began, rubbing the back of his neck. "Uhm. Can we do this in private?"

"Fine." I agreed.

Once we were a safe distance away from the boys, he blurted out:

"I love you."

"Shit. I had a whole speech planned, but I got nervous and panicked." He added after I didn't respond. "Charlie please say something or I'm going to keep babbling on like an idiot."

"What about Amber" I asked coldly.

"Its over. She's over." He answered.

"Oh." Was all I could manage to say, so he continued:

"Look I know it sounds crazy, but ever since I met you, nobody else is worth thinking about." He whispered as he took a step toward me. 

"Luke, you don't know how happy I am to here you say that." I said as I hesitated before the last part, "But its too soon."

"Charlie did you not hear me? I'm in love with you. What is too soon?" He asked with a confused look on his face.

"I'm not ready to forgive you, Luke." I whispered, looking down.

"What the hell does that mean?" He questioned, his voice becoming louder and angry.

"That I love you too, but that doesn't mean I forgive you." I explained as I turned around to walk in the other direction.

I knew if I looked at him, I'd give in. 

"What do you want from me Charlie?" He yelled with frustration.

"Luke I wanted you to fight for me." I yelled back as I turned around and stood face to face with him.

God is he cute. No! I need to stay strong.

"Charlie, I was trying to protect you." He pleaded.

"Look how far that got you. I still ended up in tears." I snapped. 

"I know." He said softly as he stepped closer, cupping my face with his hands. "And I am so, so, so sorry Charlie"

With every "so" he moved his face closer to mine, until our lips were touching.

Of course, I gave in.
