16. The Letter

Charlie's POV:

'I haven't seen Luke since the night I ran into him at Ashton's house. Nor will I see him for the remainder of the summer' I sighed to myself as I looked over my room one last time to make sure I didn't forget to pack anything.

"Charlie! Almost done? Our flight leaves in less than 2 hours." I heard my dad call from downstairs.

"All done!" I shouted back excitedly.

Zipping my suitcase, I picked up my phone and scrolled through my messages one last time before I set it to "airplane mode" and headed out the door.

'I couldn't wait to see all of my friends and family back in England.... And get away from the drama I've experienced here in Sydney. At least for the rest of the summer.' I thought as I closed the front door behind me.

The car ride to the airport was as uneventful as the countless security checks. Finally I heard the announcement:

"Now boarding flight va2 for London, England."


Luke's POV:

I haven't seen Charlie since the night I ran into her at Ashton's house. God I miss her. 

If only I could figure out a way to tell her the truth, she blocked me on all social media and won't return any of my texts or calls. If only she would give me a chance to explain' I thought to myself as I stuffed the last of my necessities into my crammed suitcase.

I felt incredibly guilty leaving without telling Charlie that the boys and I got the opportunity to tour with One Direction for the next 12 months. On top of this, I'm leaving without her knowing the truth.

I lugged my suitcase downstairs to the kitchen as I read a note on the counter from my mum:

"I can't get off work until 4, meet you at the airport though. Make sure you packed everything!"

'That's it!' I thought to myself. Since Charlie refuses to give me a chance to tell her what happened, I'll write her a letter explaining it. That way I won't feel guilty leaving.

I pulled out a pen and notebook of paper as I scribbled the words:


Dear Charlie, 

If you are reading this, then that means I'm already on my way to England. I wanted to tell you this in person- on our six month anniversary- but we both know that night didn't turned out the way we wanted it to.

I wish I could be there to see your reaction when I inform you that One Direction offered the boy's and my band to perform as the opening act for their Take Me Home tour. Aside from short breaks here and there, I will be on the road for the next year. 

Hopefully you found this letter after the boys and I left for the tour, I know that seeing you again would make it so much harder for me to leave.  

Before you read any further, I need you to believe me when I tell you the truth behind what you saw the night of our six month anniversary. You stumbled blindly into the trap, designed by Amber, that our relationship has fallen victim to. 

Carley, who overheard Calum and Michael talking about your plan to surprise me, provided Amber with the perfect opportunity to hurt you. Knowing these details, Amber forced herself on me at the exact moment you planned to surprise me.

I spent this whole summer playing that night over and over in my head, trying to pinpoint the exact moment that I lost you...Wondering if I could've said or done something differently. But I want you to know that being with you, was the best six months of my life. And I'm not ready to lose you yet. 

Understanding the events of that night, please believe me when I write that I love you. God, I love you. You are every reason, every hope, and every dream I've ever had. And no matter how far away I am, I will always be yours.  No matter where I am, I will always be yours.

Love forever, 


P.S. I miss you like crazy


After signing my name, I ran over to Charlie's house and rang the doorbell.


Hearing no response, I decided to knock.


After waiting for what seemed like forever, I slid the letter under the door, hoping it will reach Charlie.


Running back to my house, I grabbed my suitcase and threw it in the passenger seat. Turning the ignition key, I thought to myself:

London, England here I come!
