Mr. Book Store

McKinley Davis is trying to kick start her career as a book writer. Already working for a writing company at just the age of 22, she is halfway there. But her troubled home from the past somehow breaks her, holding her back from all the dreams she's ever had. Her relationship with her father changing her outlook on all men.
Luke Hemmings, a music producer is just trying to see what the world has to offer. At 22 he's trying to make his music company take off with the help of his friends. Luke had a great childhood and he grew up in a nice home but decided that he was going to live his life his way, not his parents way.
But when McKinley's path crosses with Luke's, will he be able to juggle both a broken girl and a music company. Will McKinley change her mind about all men? Or will she end up just as broken as before.


7. Sleeping Habits






As soon as we got home, I changed out of my dress and into one of Luke's shirts and a pair of leggings. We sat eating the left over food from yesterday and just talking. Ben was really funny and he never really tried. I wasn't sure if it was because he was trying to impress me or not but I went along with it. 

I tilted my head to the side and looked at him as he talked. He looked exactly like Luke so I said it, "You look exactly like Luke." 

"Well, clearly Luke looks like me because I'm older." He said which made me laugh and I nodded. 

"Yeah, that's true." I said as I picked up a cookie. "You guys have any ice cream?" I questioned as I stood up and both me and Ben went over to the fridge to look in the freezer. "You do!" I shouted pulling the vanilla ice cream out of the freezer. I grabbed another cookie and made and ice cream sandwich. 

"Can you make me one?" 

"Yeah, sure." I said grabbing two more cookies. "Where's Luke?" He shrugged as he watched me. "Luke!" I shouted throughout the house.

"I got a call from work! Give me five minutes!" He said and I nodded even though he couldn't see me and I walked back to Ben. 

"So, I heard you hooked up with that Britney girl." I said smirking at him and he groaned. 

"My god, we were young and stupid. And then she comes running to me that she's pregnant and I nearly had a damn heart attack." I laughed. All girls get pregnancy scares. Even girls who are virgins. As soon as your period is a few days late girls start freaking out. I remember having scares and thinking that I was the next virgin Mary. 

"And when did you figure out that she wasn't pregnant?" 

"When she complained about period cramps three days later." He said and we both laughed. "She's crazy. I'm sorry she treated you like that." I shook my head. 

"Don't worry about it." I smiled at him. "I've been called a lot worse." I shrugged. 

"Yeah but she was calling you a whore when she was the biggest one in the room." 

"I really don't mind." I said, Luke came down the stairs not long after. 

"What are you guys eating?" 

"Ice cream sandwiches." I answered and he took mine from my hands and took a bite out of it. "Luke!" I shouted. "That was mine." I pouted. I wasn't sure why but tears welled in my eyes. I was getting emotional over ice cream. 

"Is it someone's time of the month?" Luke asked and I looked at him. 

"Oh." Was all I said before heading to the bathroom. Nothing was there yet but I knew the way I overreacted about ice cream that it would be coming very soon. "Nope." I said as I walked back into the kitchen where he was talking with Ben, I grabbed two more cookies and made another sandwich. "Think your parents are going to be mad when they get back?" 

"Yeah." Ben said as he licked his finger's from where he touched the ice cream. "I have a feeling we'll all be punished." He said laughing a little. "Let's just go to my place. We don't have to worry." 

"Your place is like an hour from here." Luke said. 

"Okay? We can head to my house and get wasted." He said and Luke looked at me and I shrugged. "Are you in?" 

"We're in." I smiled jumping up and down. "Go pack your stuff, we'll stay there for tonight and tomorrow and then head home on Monday." Luke said and I nodded. We all went upstairs to grab our stuff before heading out. 

Luke was right about the ride but due to traffic it took us well over and hour to get to Ben's but when we did, he invited some friends over and he poured us all drinks. 

"Put some music on." I said to Ben as I poured myself another drink, Luke's arms wrapping around my waist as he handed me his cup and I filled it up. "Two nights in a row we're getting drunk." I said turning around and handing him the red solo cup. 

"Eh." He said chugging it down. 

"That was straight up vodka how the hell did you do that?" He shrugged. 

"I've been drinking for years." I nodded my head. The music was blaring through the speakers, more people showed up, and Luke pulled me into the living room to dance. Well grind. He had his hands on my hips, pulling me into him. I reached up behind me to run my hand through his hair. "My god, you're so sexy." I then looked down and I was literally wearing one of his shirts and a pair of leggings, with a pair of maroon colored vans. 

"Seriously?" I questioned laughing and he looked down, tearing the bottom half of his shirt. "Luke!" I shouted. I seemed to be shouting that a lot often lately. 

"It was mine anyway." 

"I still liked it." I pouted. Eventually Luke's lips made their way to mine and we pushed me against the wall near the door, his lips attacking my neck. "Fuck." I moaned out. I wasn't sure how he made me feel this way but he did. "Luke." I said as I ran my finger's through his hair. 

"Kin, can we go to the bedroom?" I nodded as he lead me to the room that we would be staying in. He laid me on the bed, hovering over me, his lips still attacking me in any way that they could. "Fuck." He cursed when he tried to get his pants off but in his drunken state he fell over. 

"Are you okay?" I asked once I stopped laughing. 

"Fine." He grumbled before he laid next to me. "My boner is gone." He said making me laugh. 

"I'm sorry." 

"Yeah, whatever." He said. The party died around one a.m and I fell asleep around 2. 


I left McKinley in the bed to go take a shower and grab some pills for my head. 

"So, did you get luck last night?" Ben asked me as we both stood in the kitchen and I shook my head. "No? What happened?" 

"I lost my boner when I fell over trying to get my pants off. She laughed at me." I shrugged. He laughed. "Yeah see, that's what she did." 

"Oh relax." He said shoving me a little. "You have plenty of time to get lucky." 

"I'm not in this relationship to get lucky. I mean yeah, sex is great and I haven't had sex in like four months but I'm not using her for that." 

"Trust me. I know." He said and I looked at him. "The way you look at her is like all you want is to protect her." 

"Well, I do." He nodded. "She grew up in a really shitty home. I want the rest of her life to be amazing." 

After that I walked back into the room and laid beside her, rubbing her back. Her body was laid out all over the bed taking up more than half of it. I just watched her sleep before I turned on the t.v and she moved away to the other side of the bed up against the wall. I still had my hand rubbing her back. 

"You want some break fast?" Ben asked coming into the room and I nodded. "Mom called, she wants to talk to you." He said and I nodded, getting up and grabbing my phone. I scrolled to her contact and waited for her to answer the phone. 

"Lucas." Was all she said and I knew I was in big trouble. 

"What?" I questioned. 

"We asked you for one favor! To go to this family dinner and to not screw anything up but of course you just had to go and fight with Britney, and so instead you let your girlfriend do it. I can't believe this." 

"She called McKinley a whore. You honestly believe that Kinley wasn't going to stick up for herself?" I questioned. "McKinley is not a whore and she was going to make sure everyone knew it." I said getting angry. "McKinley could have showed up in a tiny dress with her boobs and ass hanging out and she didn't, unlike that slut-" 

"Don't call her that!" My mother argued. 

"Get over yourself! Britney is a whore! She tried to say that she was pregnant with Ben's child and you're still on her side?" I questioned. I was steaming by the time I got the words out. "You do not agree with someone like her, Mom. She's a liar and you're feeding into her lies and that's not good." I said hanging up the phone. When I turned to go back to the room where McKinley was, she was standing behind me and I walked right into her. "Oh shit, sorry." She laughed a little. 

"It's fine." She giggled. "Uh, do you have anything for my headache?" I nodded, going into the kitchen. "And some food?" 

"Yeah, there's some eggs on the stove and there's toast on that plate over there." I said pointing to where the toast was. "How did you sleep?" I questioned and she shrugged. 

"You snore." She said sitting at the table with her toast, eggs and coffee. "Like, really loud." She said. "Right in my ear." 

"I'm sorry, you move around a lot." I said and she nodded. "You hit me in the face a few times." She laughed. 

"I think you were dreaming that." She said pointing at me. I kissed her forehead before sitting down across from her. "Were you fighting with your mom over me?" 

"No no, she was taking Britney's side over all of this and I just needed her to know that she was wrong." 

"Well Britney wasn't wrong, I was a whore but I'm not like that anymore." She said eating her breakfast. 

"I know but she still had no right. She know's nothing about you." She shook her head at me and placed her hand on top of mine. 

"She mean's nothing." She said and I nodded. "She lied to your family." She said and I nodded. I knew she lied. "Is your mother upset with us?" 

"Yeah, she thinks that we were acting childish." 

"I was just sticking up for myself." She said and I nodded. I knew exactly what she was doing and I was proud of her for doing that. "How could I be the one being childish when she nearly pushed me off the couch and then called me a whore?" She questioned. 

"I used to just sleep around. I didn't want to be in a relationship with anyone and if I ever brought someone to a dinner, they were usually a whore. But you're my girlfriend so I don't see why everyone thought that you were a whore." 

"I used to be a whore! I'm not like that anymore." 

"Sh, I know." I said kissing her. "My family is crazy." She nodded her head. 

"Mine too." She said. "They always said that I would never make it, look at me now." She smiled. 

"What about your brother's? Wasn't he trying to make it big too?" She nodded, swallowing the toast. "Where did he end up?" 

"Well, he always wanted to be an actor, so after high school he moved out to California for school. He should still be in school." She answered and I nodded. 

"How old is he?" 

"He's 21." She answered. "His birthday is only four days after mine." She answered. "He was a surprise." 

"What do you mean?" 

"I mean my mom only wanted two kids, her birth control didn't work and somehow I ended up with two brother's instead of one." She said and I nodded. "But then again my younger brother was my best friend so I don't really mind." I laughed a little. 

"My mom was trying for a girl. Here I am, with a penis." I said and she laughed. "I think she hates me because of it." She laughed more. 

"I'm going to shower." She said getting up from where she was and headed to the bathroom. She was so lovely. 

The next day, I got a call from Ashton that something went wrong with the recordings that we had the week before and he couldn't find them, so I woke up McKinley and Ben before we said our goodbye's and me and McKinley made the four hour trip back to the City. 



"I don't have enough time to drop you off at your apartment so you'll have to come with me." I nodded. I didn't mind. I really didn't want to go back home. 

"That's fine." I answered smiling at him. We pulled up the building that was pure white on the outside. 

"Are you going to stay here?" He asked. 

"Am I going to be in the way?" 

"No no, it's fine. I'm not sure how long I'll be in there anyway." I shrugged as I unbuckled and I followed him into the building. 

"Good morning, Mr. Hemmings." 

"Morning, this is my girlfriend, McKinley. Kinley, this is Amanda." We smiled at each other before me and Luke walked down the hallway. 

"Where's your bathroom?" I asked. 

"Down the hall and to the left, I'll be right here when you're done." I nodded as I headed down the hall.  The bathrooms were super nice with white walls and they were clean. 

I walked into the room that Luke said he was going to be and both him and another guy were freaking out. 

"Ashton! I told you to save them here! What did you do with them?" Luke shouted at the curly haired guy. 

"I did!" Ashton shouted back. 

"Check your trash." I answered and they both turned to look at me. "Sometimes it moves or someone moves it and it ends up in the trash." I said standing behind Luke and wrapping my arms around him. 

"I'm sorry, who are you?" Ashton asked. 

"Oh, I'm McKinley, I'm Luke's girlfriend." He nodded as we shook hands. "Nice to meet you." I smiled. 

"So, you know stuff about computers?" Ashton asked and I shrugged. 

"My written often goes missing and more often than not it's in the trash." I watched as Luke clicked it. "What did you name it?" 

"Ah! It's right here." Luke said. "You scared the shit out me, Ashton." 

"I'm sorry!" He said still stressing out. "Bryana said she had to tell me something after work and I've been freaking out ever since." He said. 

"Do you know what's wrong?" I questioned. 

"No. And I don't know what to do. Nothing seemed out of wack. She's acting normal. I have no idea what's going on." 

"Maybe she's pregnant." Luke shrugged and we both looked at him. 

"I have to go." Ashton said as he grabbed his jacket and he left. 

"You just scared the shit out of him." Luke shrugged as I laughed. 

"He did it to me. We would have lost thousands of dollars if we didn't find that recording." He said and I nodded. "My god, these asshole's give me anxiety." He said and I laughed. 

"There's more than one asshole?" 

"Yeah, me and Ashton work with two other guys. Calum and Michael. You'll meet them soon enough." He said grabbing his jacket. "Let's get out of here." 

That night I laid in bed alone, Luke had claimed he hadn't slept because I slept all over the bed but I'm almost positive it's because he snores. Either way, I didn't sleep that night.
