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?


3. the kiss

Skylar’s POV

I kept my hand tightly gripped on Luke’s wrist the whole time down to the party scared that I would lose him if I let go. As soon as we entered the room we were hit by flashing lights, loud music and people dancing, or more like grinding on the dance floor. I smiled at Luke.

“You want to dance?”

“Sure, why not?” Luke gave me a charming and nervous smile. I walked towards the dance floor, and then when I turned to Luke I saw him looking in another direction with a look of complete horror on his face.

“What’s wrong?” I asked suddenly worried

“It’s just my stupid friends.” Luke sighed and I frowned.

“So Luke, I’m guessing this is the girl.” A boy with blond and black hair walked up to us and threw his arm around Luke’s shoulders. He was about an inch shorter than Luke and had brilliant emerald green eyes that could outshine the emerald city. He had a huge smile plastered on his face and clearly had the intention to get on Luke’s nerves. Luke looked away, clearly annoyed.

“I’m guessing you’re Michael?” I asked even though I knew the answer.

“Yep and you must be Skylar.” I nodded my head. “Well Luke I got to admit you have excellent taste, she’s really cute.” I blushed at Michael’s words hoping the flashing lights would hide it.

“Come on Sky, let’s go dance.” Luke grabbed my hand and walked further on to the floor. He was so amazing that before I knew it I was in his arms and had no intention of leaving. We danced to a couple rock songs and then a slow dance song started playing. The music was so soothing I closed my eyes and put my hands on Luke’s broad chest and rested my head right in the middle of his chest as he gently held me in his arms as we swayed back and forth. I could tell even through his shirt he was pretty muscular and I felt so safe. Suddenly Luke called out my name. I lifted my head to look into his blue eyes. The second I meet his eyes they filled with worry and didn’t look as bright.

“Yeah Luke?”


“You can tell me.”

“I don’t understand"


“This, I don’t understand us.”

“What about us?”

“I’m confused Skylar. When I first saw you I thought you were beautiful and now I can’t stop thinking about you. I don’t get it, and it makes me nervous to have you here. Pretty soon I’m not going to able to eat or sleep, as cliché as that sounds.”

“Don’t worry so much Luke. Just relax, it will all make sense before you know it.” I put my head back on his chest and he called my name again. At the very moment that I lifted my head, Luke crashed his lips to mine.


Luke’s POV

I didn’t really know what I was doing, but I couldn’t stop myself. I pressed my lips to hers and she froze for a second then I felt her kiss me back, but kept her hands on my chest. Her lips were soft and warm; they felt like heaven to me. I smiled into the kiss, took her hands from my chest and locked them around my neck and tightened my grip on her waist deepening the kiss. She began to reach up and tangled her fingers through my hair. She tugged slightly and I tried to suppress my moan, but failed and quietly moaned against her lips and felt her smile. Her lips just felt absolutely amazing. I forgot everything else happening around us. The only thing that mattered was the two of us. I was up on cloud 9 and wasn’t even close to coming down. She pulled away I looked down at her, her eyes shinning brighter than they ever had before. “Er…sorry” I said scratching the back of my neck while keeping one arm around her waist.

“No, don’t be.” She smiled at me

“WOW, didn’t see that coming” Ashton laughed suddenly standing right next to us, smiling with his dimples. I glared at him annoyed he ruined this moment. I just had the best kiss of my life and he has to show up.

“Ashton” I hissed and he backed away slowly, holding up his hands in surrender.

“Well you two lovebirds have fun, and use protection.” Ashton smiled and disappeared in the crowd. I groaned and rolled my eyes.

“Hey Sky, can I talk to you for a second?” I asked looking down at her.

“Sure” she replied and followed me out back where it was a lot quieter and I didn’t have to shout. Once we were outside I let go of her hand but didn’t face her. I don’t think I could look at her and control myself. “Hey Luke are you okay?” I heard her worried voice. It was so gently and sweet that I could have fainted.

“Yeah I’m fine.” I said still not facing her.

“Then why aren’t you looking at me?” she asked like I hurt her.

“If I did I would lose control and force myself on you again.”

 “Why are you so worried about it? It’s not like I got mad when you kissed me. I liked it and kissed you back.” She walked around to my front and took my chin forcing me to look down at her.

“I know but I don’t really know you and you don’t know me. It seems weird. I just lost control there, and couldn’t stop myself. You do something to me Sky, when I’m around you I lose all control. I don’t know how you do it. I don’t really know you.” I said looking every direction but hers and she just laughed that god given laugh.

“Well then lets get to know each other.” She took my hand and led me back to the courtyard where we couldn’t even hear the music and we talked all night. I honestly had never felt so happy and never wanted to leave that bench or my blond American angel. Soon Skylar was fast asleep with her head on my shoulder.

“Aw, you two sure make a nice couple.” I looked up to see two girls, they looked exactly the same with long blond hair reaching down to their shoulder blades, skin slightly lighter than Sky’s, and dark chocolate brown eyes just like Calum, but one had a yellow spaghetti strap dress and the other had a strapless gray dress. I knew they were the twins that were at the table earlier today. “You should probably take Skylar upstairs now.” The one in yellow spoke up. “My name is Emily by the way and this is my sister Mary. We’re friends with Skylar. Now I know you would love to spend all night with her, but you look tired and Skylar is out like a light.”

“Plus she’s way out of your league.” Mary spoke up and smirked at me. Thankfully I noticed the joking tone in her voice and chuckled. She smiled seeing I got her joke.

“Now say goodnight to your girlfriend.” Emily smiled at me. I nodding understanding I should take Skylar to her room and get going. I didn't want get on her friends bad side, and based on what she told me about her friends I should do what the girls say. I picked her up bridal style and followed Mary up to Sky’s room. I placed her down in the bed Mary told me was hers after I removed her shoes, necklace, and dangle earrings then I tucked her in when I saw her phone next to her pillow. I quickly grabbed her phone and put in my number and texted myself so I would have her number. It may have been crazy when I’ve haven’t even known this girl for 12 hours. I didn’t care though. She was already glued to my brain, and tattooed on my heart.
