22. always more




I had been staying at Luke's a lot more recently and he was enjoying every minute of it. I cleaned up after him, I made him whatever he wanted, I let him do whatever he wanted to my body. He knew that he could control me. Of course he was in the shower while I was cooking him breakfast and there was a knock on the front door.

"Hold on!" I shouted wiping my hands off on a towel and going to answer the door. A women stood there looking at me as I opened the door.

"Oh. I must have the wrong place." She said looking at the number on the door and then down at the piece of paper she was holding. "Is Luke Hemmings here?" She questioned.

"Um, yeah. Can I ask who you are?" I questioned. I wasn't going to just let her in and she clearly somehow knew Luke.

"I'm Carlie, me and him used to date." My eyes widened.

"Are you in trouble or something?" I questioned holding the door so she couldn't see into the apartment.

"No. I'm just in town and thought that I would stop buy and see him." She smiled. "Are you his new cook?" I snorted.


"Who is it?" Luke asked coming out drying his hair with a towel and now fully dressed. He grabbed the door and pulled it before his eyes light up. "Carlie!" He shouted shoving past me to hug her. "How are you?" He asked. "How's Florida?"

"I'm good. Florida is great." She smiled clearly waiting for him to invite her in.

"Come in come in!" He said standing to the side and letting her in. I stood there shocked that he would allow his ex-girlfriend to come into his apartment. “Would you like anything?” He questioned going to the kitchen.

“No. I’m okay.” She answered looking around. I watched her as she touched a picture of Luke and Jack that I had taken. “How’s your family doing?”

“They’re doing good. Jack and Celeste just got engaged.” Luke answered as they sat on the couch together.

“Remember when we were engaged and almost got married.” She laughed. My eyes widened at her words and I rushed into the kitchen. Luke had never told me that they were engaged to be married. In fact he never said anything about her.

I sat at the table and ate my breakfast while listening to them talking and laughing. I found it so strange that he was able to propose to this women but freaked out and got drunk when he THOUGHT that I would want to get married. Why wouldn’t he tell me something like this? I cleaned the kitchen before going to his room.

“McKinley come join us.” Luke smiled at me and I glared at him.

“No, thanks.” I answered going to his room and locking myself inside. I dug around in his room trying to find this ring assuming that she gave it back to him when they broke up.

“Kin? I’m gonna take Carlie out to lunch.” Luke shouted. “I’ll talk to you later.”

“Bye!” I shouted before hearing the front door close. I quickly called Courtney. “Dude, you’re never going to believe who showed up at Luke’s front door.” I nearly yelled putting the phone on speaker so I could search and see if I could find anything.

“Um, his dad?”

“His ex-fiance! Who he never told me about!” I shouted. “How could he have kept this from me?” I asked going to check the hall closet to see if he had anything in there.

“What? What are you doing? McKinley, don’t do anything stupid.”

“I’m just looking through his stuff. I have found the wedding invitation. They were planning to get married this year on July 4th! When the hell did they break up?!” I was furious. How could he have not told me something like that? “And he fucking took her out to lunch. I wanna smack him right now.” I rolled my eyes.

“He’s with her right now?”

“Yeah, probably smacking lips together.” I sighed sitting down on his bed. “What do I do?” I questioned.

“No idea.” She commented. I dug through all of his stuff before I heard the front door opening and couldn’t put everything back in time.

“What the hell are you doing?” He asked coming into his room after climbing over all of the junk that I left in the hallway. “Look at this mess!”

“Why didn’t you ever tell me about Carlie and the fact that you were engaged!” I said shoving the invitation into his chest before shoving past him and headed to the living room.

“We were young and stupid. It didn’t matter.”

“How does it not matter?! You were going to marry her! That’s not nothing, Luke!” I shouted. “You got wasted when you thought about me being ready to marry you, what’s so different about her? Why were you going to marry her but the thought of marrying me scares you?”

“It doesn’t matter! What does matter is the fact that you went through my personal shit! Do you know how wrong that is?” I rolled my eyes. “Don’t roll your eyes at me. This is my apartment and you have no right to do that.”

“You should have told me about her and I wouldn’t have gone through your stuff. Does she even know that you have a girlfriend?” I questioned.

“No. It never came up.” I nodded. “I won’t have one for long if she keeps acting like this.”

“Acting like what, Luke? Like I’m nothing? Like I don’t matter? Like I’m being lied to.”

“Like a fucking crazy person. I don’t have to tell you anything. I’m allowed to have some secrets!” He shouted.

“Yeah stupid ones like the first time you smoked pot or almost got caught by the cops or something! Not something like this! About a very serious relationship where you almost fucking got married! And mind you, July Fourth was only a few weeks ago.” I said and he rolled his eyes.

“You’re insane.” He laughed.

“I could smack you right now.” I mumbled going to clean up the mess I made. “You’re so fucking annoying.” I added.

“Yeah yeah.” He said leaning down to help me clean. “Trust me okay? She doesn’t matter. The only reason I was going to marry her was because my family didn’t like her. It had nothing to do with the fact that I loved her. Because I didn’t. We were only together for a few months before she said that we should get married and me being the little shit I was went along with it. When I got my job at the record label I broke it off.” He explained. “I never loved her the way I love you.”

“I’m sorry for going through your stuff.” I mumbled leaning into him.

“It’s okay. I knew you would do it someday anyway.” He chuckled. “I’ll just never leave you alone in my apartment ever again.”


“What can I do to make you forgive me?” McKinley questioned. “I’ll do anything.” She added.

“I already forgave you but a blowjob would be nice.” I smirked as we organized the mess she made.

“Oh really.” She said looking at me and I nodded. “Alright.” She said getting up and pulling me to the bedroom. She shoved me down on the bed and began undoing my pants. I laid back on the bed and let her get to work. I sighed as she brought her tongue up my shaft.

I laid there but my mind began to wander to when she was going through my stuff and I couldn’t believe she actually did that. She really thought I was hiding some big secret. Well I guess I was but I just wasn’t ready to tell her.

“Stop.” I said. “Stop!” I shouted pushing her off. She looked shocked as she fell back.

“What the hell, Luke.” She said as I quickly put my pants back on.

“You should leave.”


“Just leave.” I commented. “I really don’t want you here right now.”

“What? Why not?” She asked clearly hurt thinking that I forgave her. “What did I do?”

“I decided I don’t forgive you for going through my stuff. I want you to leave.” I said calm.

“Fine.” She said turning around and going to the kitchen to grab her stuff. She made sure to slam the front door as she left and I fell back on the bed with a groan. I had no idea what I was going to do with her.

The next day at work when I was explaining what happened to Ashton, he sided with McKinley.

“Well dude. Are you stupid? You don’t go out to breakfast or whatever with your ex-fiance!”

“It wasn’t like anything was going to happen. She was in town and I took her to lunch.”

“Did she touch your shoulders or arms?” Ashton asked.

“Yeah?” I said confused, most women do that.

“Does she know that you have a girlfriend? Who you’ve been seeing since December?”

“No. It never came up. She thinks McKinley is the new cook that I hired.” Ashton threw his hands in the air.

“You’re a moron!” He shouted. “Of course she was gonna go through your shit, she probably thinks you’re cheating on her or something. She found something worse though.” He commented. “Luke, there is no use in lying to her. She’s going to find out the truth one way or another. 

"I'm not cheating on her." I confirmed. 

"Then why are you mad at her for going through your stuff unless you're hiding something? She knows the truth now. Get over it. All girls go through their partners stuff in their life. She is no different. Stop lying and stop talking to Carlie. I can see her texting you. Text your girlfriend and act like a caring boyfriend." He said before leaving the room. I always hated when Ashton was right. 

I knocked on McKinley's door and stood with flowers and a bag on Chinese food hoping she would open the door. I heard a groan before the door opened. 

"Oh. Hi." She mumbled stepping to the side to let me in. 

"I shouldn't have been mad about you going through my stuff. You were just worried and I'm not hiding anything, I promise. I mean yes I hid that from you but I wasn't sure how you would react if I told you." She listened to what I was saying. "I'm sorry I kicked you out." 

"I was sucking you off." I'm surprised that's the first thing she had to say. "You said you forgave me."

"I know. I'm sorry." I pouted. "I love you." I said giving her the saddest face I possibly could. 

"I love you too." She mumbled hugging me. "A lot." And said looking up at me and standing on her tip toes to kiss me. She rested her head back on my chest and I stood there holding her. She began sniffling. 

"Why are you crying?" I asked running my finger's through her hair. 

"I feel like you hate me." She cried keeping her face in my chest so I couldn't see her tears. "You're gonna break up with me and then I'm gonna be alone." 

"I wouldn't never leave you." 

"Don't say that. We're either going to break up or get married and both scares me." She said letting me go to go lay in bed and I followed. 

"Okay, I won't say that but I'm not leaving you today. Yes I was angry and yes I kicked you out but I still want to be with you." 

"Nothing happened with your ex?" She questioned. 

"No. We just went out for lunch. Nothing else happened. I didn't tell her about you, which I should have but we mostly just talked about work and stuff like that. I promise that I don't plan to ever get back together with her." She nodded as she held my hand. "I love you, baby. A lot." I leaned down and kissed her. 

"I love you more." She whispered pulling me closer to her. "Always more."
