Love Halfway Around The World

Skylar and her friends were just trying to enjoy a trip in Australia. She and her three best girls weren't looking for any kind of romance to come their way, and frankly Skylar didn't really want it. What happens when she accidentally knocks over Luke Hemmings in the street and he gets hooked? What about when her friends Mary, Emily, and Claire fall for the other three? Will love work out or cause trouble between best friends?


7. the confession and planed date

Luke’s POV

I was crying on the ground outside. I can’t believe I did that to Skylar. Now she hates me and won’t ever talk to me again, she’ll end up with Ryan or Conor and live a happy life without me. Cal had told me that she is falling for me, but I think I may have stopped her and wiped away any romantic feelings that she could ever have for me. I cried even after all the water in my body was gone. By now it was dark and probably after midnight. I was about to finally completely break when I heard footsteps and looked up to see Skylar. My eyes widened in shock. Why is she here? “NO Skylar, don’t come near me I don’t want to hurt you.” I tried to get her to stay away but she didn’t listen and knelt beside me.

“Luke you won’t do that.”

“I just did Sky, I hurt you. I hurt the girl I love, I don’t deserve you, I don’t deserve-“ before I could finish Skylar crushed her lips to mine and clung to my neck. Her lips felt amazing against mine as she deepened the kiss I cradled her head with my hand and started moving my lips in sync with hers.

“ I love you Luke and I want to be your girlfriend will you be my boyfriend?” Sky fisted her hands in my hair and stared into my eyes. Her eyes were so bright they could light up a whole city and I couldn’t look away.

“You took my line Sky. I was supposed to ask you to be my girlfriend.” I said as I stood and helped her up.

“Well then, yes Luke I will be you girlfriend.” She smiled put her hands on my chest and kissed me again. Why does she always put her hands there? I smiled into the kiss, grabbed her arms and locked them around my neck and wrapped my arms around her waist pulling her close to me deepening the kiss. She then let her fingers run through my hair and tug hard. I moaned into her mouth as she pulled at my hair, and I slipped my tongue into her mouth tangling it with hers. I then grabbed the outside of her thighs and picked her up and she wrapped her legs around my waist while kissing my neck. I started to moan in the back of my throat and felt her smile against my skin. I threw my head back and gave into the sweet sensation of her lips on my skin.


Skylar’s POV

“Hey Skylar.” I heard my name being called and saw Ryan, Conor, and Tim walking towards me. Ryan and Tim sat on the couch across from me, and Conor sat next to me.

“Hey guys, what’s up?”

“You okay Sky, you look like you didn’t sleep a wink last night.” Ryan looked at me concerned

“I’m fine you don’t have to worry.” I tried to sound fully confident, but looking at Conor’s face I knew he could tell that wasn’t entirely true. Of course he can tell when I’m lying.

“Did you get a chance to talk to Luke last night?” Conor asked and I widened my eyes. “Ok I get it.” Conor smiled and then launched into a conversation with Ryan and Tim. Its nice to have Conor around at times like this, if he wasn’t I would’ve been in the middle of an interrogation right about now.


Luke’s POV

I woke up in a new bed. I sat up and rubbed my eyes when Calum walked in with Mary.

“Well you had a good night.” Mary said smirking at me

“What do you mean?” I asked Mary and Calum just laughed.

“Take a look at your neck mate.”  Calum smiled pointing at my neck. I got up and went to the mirror, to find that Sky left love bites all over my neck. I was embarrassed, but also smiled knowing these came from Skylar.

“Well I got to go find Sky.” Mary said turning towards the door.

“Why?” Cal asked

“Simple, so I know how she left marks that noticeable, then I’ll give them to you.” She answered pointing at Cal, smiled and left. Cal fell back on his bed sighing.

“Mate I am so in love right now.” I just laughed and sat next to him

“Then make a move, I mean she wants to kiss you… or at least your neck.” I smirked at Cal

“I know I just need a place and time to do it.”

“Don’t worry, leave that to me and my new girlfriend.” I gave him a wink and walked out to find Skylar.


Skylar’s POV

I was hanging out with Conor, Ryan, and Tim when Mary came bouncing down the stairs and sat between Ryan and Tim right across from Conor and me. Conor and I took a look at her face, looked at each other and back to Mary, both raising an eyebrow.

“Well Skylar looks like you finally marked Luke as your territory.” I slightly cocked my head to one side without a word. “Well you are the one who left all those marks on his neck right?” Mary gave me a wink and I felt my cheeks flame.

“Yeah Sky got some from pretty boy Luke.” Thank god Conor at least said his name. Before I could even respond Luke appeared next to Tim leaning casually on the arm of the couch with a scarf covering his neck. I’m not going to lie he looked really hot.

“Hey I need to talk to Sky for a minute.” Luke looked around the group.

“Take all the time you need…Luke” Conor smiled and Luke smiled proud that Conor finally said his name. I nodded my head and followed Luke to a smaller couch and sat down with him.

“I can see you found the marks on your neck.” I said nervously rubbing the back of my neck.

“Yeah apparently Mary now wants to leave those all over Calum.”

“You’re kidding, Mary’s to chicken to even try and kiss him.” I frowned at Luke.

“Exactly! That’s where we come in.” Luke smirked “We are going on a double date with Calum and Mary so Calum can make a move and finally kiss her.”

“Are you asking me out?” I smirked playfully

“Why yes I am. Along with Mary and Calum.” Luke smiled and made my heart melt.

“All right let’s do this at dinner tonight. There’s a restaurant down the street and Kim is leaving dinner to us tonight. Plus I can make sure it’s the four of us.”

“Good, but how?” Luke asked

“Easy, Conor can help convince everyone to go somewhere else.” I smiled “Don’t worry and I’ll see you tonight.” I kissed Luke on the cheek, then walked back over, sat down next to Conor and whispered something in his ear. He winked at me and smiled at Luke giving him a nod, which Luke returned.


Luke’s POV

I was glad that Skylar had an idea to get the four of us alone. She kissed me on the cheek then walked back over, sat down next to Conor and whispered in his ear. Normally seeing that happen would infuriate me, but I knew she was only doing that to keep our plan secret so I let it slide, plus Conor is Skylar’s best friend so I can probably trust him. Conor winked at Skylar then gave me a smile and nod, which I returned. I pulled out my phone and dialed Calum. “Hey mate what’s up?”

“Dude get down here we are going shopping.” I smiled as I told him. “Got to look good for your date tonight”

“Wait, so you got me a date with Mary?”

“Well a double date with me and Skylar”

“Duh man you know I’ll get too nervous alone with her.” Calum groaned

“Hey man I told you, you can leave everything to me and my girlfriend.”

“You just love that word now that it refers to Sky.”  

“Haha, whatever man, just get down here.” I hung up and waited for Calum
