24. Chapter Twenty Three

Lauren's pov

A phone ringing is what woke me up. Two times it went off. I open my eyes to see a sleeping Luke, and a dark bedroom, being lit up by a phone. We must've fallen asleep while watching our movie and slept all evening. I grabbed the phone off the night stand.

New message from Livvy💍

What the hell? How did she get my number. And why is there a ring emoji by her name?

From: Livvy

okay. I will see you then. Remember, you're walking on egg shells here. What the hell is she talking about? I scrolled up to the beginning of the texts.

To: Livvy

Hey, can we meet up somewhere? I wanna work things out between us. I don't want to ruin it with the kids and you.

From: Livvy

Why do you want to fix this, isn't the little girl enough for you? I mean after all, you did choose her over me.

To: Livvy

Come on baby, please don't say that, I know I messed up but I'm sorry and I want to make this right.

From: Livvy

To: Livvy

From: Livvy

okay. I will see you then. Remember, you're walking on egg shells here.

Are you serious. I couldn't control myself. I reached over, and slapped him and he woke up. "What the hell Lauren!?" He yelled. "I can't believe you! I trusted you with my heart and now you are doing this to me!? I hate you and I hope Ashton kills you for this! I can't believe you would be trying to get back together with Livvy while we are still together!" I yelled.

"Maybe I wouldn't be trying to work things out with her if you weren't so.....virginal." He said standing up and towering above me. "Don't you dare bring me not wanting to have sex with you into this!" I shouted at him. Luke huffed, and put his hand on his forehead.

"All Im saying is, if you didn't make me wait, I wouldn't want to find it somewhere else. And besides, I want someone my age. Someone that can do things with me." He replied, looking down at me like I was a tiny bug. "And besides, you're just a little girl." He added.

"Get out." I said, staring at his chest. "What?" He asked stepping closer to me. "I said get out." I replied, backing away from him. "Just know, once I leave, you're never going to see me again." He said walking towards me. I backed up until my back hit the wall.

"Just leave! I hate you!" I screamed at him. He stopped walking towards me and dropped his head an looked at the floor. "I'm sorry." He whispered. "It's a little late for that." I said, as he walked out of my bedroom.

I followed him and watched him from the top of the stairs. He looked up at me and I noticed a few tears. He looked so hurt and broken. "Leave." I said just above a whisper as tears started falling down my red cheeks. No. Don't do this. Don't be weak. "I love you." He whispered, as more tears fell to the floor. He turned and opened the front door.

He gave me one last broken look over his shoulder, and walked out of the house shutting the door behind him. "No you don't." I whispered to myself as I sat down on the top step. "You never did." I whispered to myself, as I cried my heart out.


I felt a hand on the top of my head, and someone sat down beside me. "It's okay Lauren. You can let it out." He said. I looked up and it was Michael. "It hurts Michael. It hurts so bad." I cried and hugged him around his neck and put my head on his shoulder.

"It will be alright." He said in a soft voice. "Michael can I please just hug you?" I asked looking up at him with tears still running down my cheeks. "Of course." He said opening his arms.

"Thank you for being here for me." I said climbing in his lap and hugging him. "You'll always be my baby sister. Maybe not by blood, but we're always going to be family." He said resting his chin on the top of my head. I put my head on his shoulder and closed my eyes.

"Michael, how do I get over him?" I asked. "It will take time, movies, lots of food, crying and sleeping to get over a break up this bad.'" He said. I giggled softly. "Theres my happy girl." He said happily.

I checked the time, it was 9:30. "It's 9:30, I should go to bed." I informed, as I got up from Michael's lap.

"Goodnight Michael. And thank you for being there for me." I smiled, helping him up. "You're welcome little Laure bug." He replied, bopping my nose. "You haven't called me that since I was 7." I said smiling. "And it always cheered you up." He replied with a smile.

"Goodnight Michael." I laughed. "Goodnight." He replied, walking into his bedroom. I walked into mine, and changed out of my jeans and my 1D tee shirt and put on my grey pajama shorts and my black tank top. I got into bed and took a breath. It smelt just like Luke. His hair, his clothes, him. I started thinking about every little detail about him. His ocean eyes, his tall blonde quiffed hair, his long legs, that he always trips on when he runs, his broad shoulders, his lip ring, his vans and band tees I always wore. Every single detail about him flooded my mind.

I couldn't take it any longer. I got up and walked to Michael's bedroom. I was about to wake him up, when it dawned on me. What if I'm annoying to him? What if he doesn't want to bothered? I leaned on the side wall, as I thought.

"Ouch!" I yelled as a body crashed into mine. "I thought I heard something." Michael laughed as I stood back up. "Oh yeah, i was just wondering if um... If I could crash in here with you for a while until I fall asleep? Please?" I asked rocking back and forth on my heels. "Of course." He replied. "Thanks Michael. I can't stand to be alone right now. I need company." I sighed, sitting down on his bed. "I understand." He replied, covering us up in the covers.

"Goodnight" I whispered, as I turned on my side. "Goodnight." Michael replied.


"Ouch! Shit." I heard someone whisper as I felt like I was floating. What the hell? I opened my eyes and saw I was being carried down the hallway and into my room. A few seconds later, I felt my bed under me and my blankets being put on top of me. I guess Michael carried me to my bed after I fell asleep. "I hope Luke's hurting as much as you are." I heard him whisper before the bedroom door shut. That's the last thing I remember before I fell back to sleep.


I was asleep, when I felt the bed sink around me. I opened my eyes and saw Luke hovering above me.

"Please listen." He begged. I looked at the clock and it was 4:00 in the night. I still didn't say a word as I sat up making Luke sit down by my legs. "Please listen." He repeated. I bit my lip.

"Please." He whispered, putting his hand on my cheek. "Alright, but you have ten minutes. And be quiet, I don't want Michael in here and all up in this." I replied. He smiled widely.
