I walked downstairs to find Luke, not Ashton.
"What are you still doing here?"
"I came here to apologise"
"Luke it's late could we talk about this tomorrow or some other time?"
"The thing is Chloe, I've been thinking about what happened..."
"Could we talk about some other...."
"And you're right"
"What did you say?"
"You were right Chloe, I should have pushed her away"
In this moment of time my brain was completely confused and didn't know what to do or what to think, I didn't what to do to show that I appreciated Luke's apology.
"Chloe you need to understand that I would never do anything to hurt you, I mean if you think back to this morning and remember how happy we were together it was almost like nothing could pull us apart"
"I guess you're right" I said with a bit of a chuckle, "but that doesn't change anything Luke, I do still have feelings for you but you lost my trust in you, you need to find a way to earn it back and now isn't the right time, come over tomorrow and see what you can do"
"I completely respect that, goodnight Chloe"
"Goodnight Luke, see you tomorrow" I said slowly walking to the door and opening it.
Once Luke had left I closed the door turned around and slid down it eventually sitting down and bringing my knees to my chest. So much can change in a matter of a few seconds. I was pretty pleased with myself I never thought I had the guts to do something like that.
Luke texted my early this morning saying that he would be over around 12.30, he also said that I needed to change into bathers. So in this point of time I was downstairs having breakfast, once I had finished eating I cleaned up my mess and went upstairs to have a quick shower seeing that it was the weekend. I know it's weird we started our first day of school on a Friday but it's just how it worked out. So I was having a quick shower I washed my hair, body and face and brushed my teeth and then turned the water off and stepped out of the shower. I then proceeded to go to my bedroom with a towel wrapped around my body with my hairs slightly dripping down my back. I had no idea what bikini I would be wearing today, I literally pulled every bathing suit I owned out of the drawer and chuck them on the floor.
I finally chose 3 bikini's and chose this one out of them all.
I put it on and then slid into a pair of black high waisted denim short shorts, and threw on a white Metallica muscle tank and my trusty pair of black thongs. I was almost ready so I went into my bathroom and put my hair loosely into 2 french braids and touched up my imperfections with a tiny bit of concealer. Now I was ready and Luke would arrive any minute so I grabbed a beach bag and shoved a towel and sunscreen in the bag, I then found my raybans and put them on top of my head and slipped my phone in my pocket, by the time I had done all of that Luke had arrived and was knocking on my door.
"Hey Luke" I said as I opened my door.
"Hey, you look amazing"
"So do you"
"Are you ready to go?" he asked.
"Yep" I turned around and closed the door behind me not locking it since my mum was home, "so what are we doing today?"
"We're going down to the beach and basically just hanging around there for the rest of the day, I've packed a picnic so we don't get hungry"
"Sounds like fun"
Once we had arrived at the beach I carried the picnic basket and my beach bag while Luke carried the beach umbrella and his beach bag.
"Where do you want to sit?"
"It's up to you Chlo"
I walked over to a spot that seemed like when it got hotter it would be shaded. I set down my bag and the basket and got out my towel and laid it down.
"Hey Luke do you think you could put some sunscreen on my back?"
"Sure" I handed him the sunscreen and he rubbed some into my back, "could you do mine for me?"
He handed me the sunscreen bottle and I sprayed some on his back rubbing it in.
"Do you want to go in the water before we eat?" he questioned.
"Sure" it was kind of awkward at the moment but I'm sure we'll become more comfortable once we go in the water, I'm actually surprised that no fans have come up to Luke yet, but I'm not complaining because that means I get him alone for now. I really want to trust him again but he has to earn, I mean for god's sake he kissed someone else and that really broke my heart, I know we hadn't been dating for very long but I had really fallen for him.
The next thing I knew I was splashed by water.
"Hey" I looked behind me and Luke was looking as guilty as anything, "I'm so going to get you" I got to him before he could get to far away and jumped on him making him fall down in the water me coming after him since I was on top of him.
"What did you do that for?" he said looking up at me.
"Well firstly you splashed me and secondly I just wanted to" at that point we were both laughing. I got off of him and he got up quickly offering me a hand before I could get up. He pulled me up with so much force that I had to grab hold of his shoulders to steady myself. I looked up at him wanting to kiss him so bad, but I couldn't because he still had to get my full trust back and I don't think it would be fair to either of us because I told him something and I can't just go ahead and kiss him after he thinks that I still hate him. I knew he wanted to kiss me to so before we both did start leaning in I intervened.
"Does lunch sound good?" I started to walk away before he do or say anything. He started to come after me.
"I don't get you Chloe"
"What do you mean?"
"What I mean is that we just had that intimate moment and then you completely change the subject. We had arrived back at our spot on the beach and had sat down. He grabs my hand and with his spare hand he places his index finger and thumb on my chin and carefully turns my head to face him.
"Everytime I touch you I can feel you slightly tense up, Chloe you don't need to be nervous around me, I should be the one who's nervous"
I ignored his statement and changed the subject again by opening the picnic basket.
"Ooooo, did you pack strawberries"
"See there you go again and changed the subject"
"Luke can we not talk about this and just enjoy our day"
"No, we need to get past this time, Chloe I know I was in the wrong, but I would never even think about kissing someone else, I already admitted that you were right, but you need to understand that she came onto me", "Chloe I need you to be in my life, without you I'm empty"
"How are you empty Luke, you have the boys around and I do understand I just...."
Luke's lips were on mine I don't think we could hold back anymore, he had turned my head and pulled me towards him as much as he could since the picnic basket was in the way, I didn't resist I kissed back, at the same time I felt completely in the wrong but also in the right. I pulled away slowly after about 40 seconds.
"I feel empty because I don't have a girl around to be loved by and to love back" he whispered so softly I could barely make it out.
I gave him another peck on the lips. In the back of my mind I knew that this would happen I knew that I would trust him straight away and I knew that I couldn't keep the amazing sensation of his lips from mine any longer.
"So does that mean I have earned your trust again?"
"What do you think dork" he chuckled and grabbed hold of my hand.
"Good because I couldn't bare any longer to not have your lips on mine"
I had texted my mum saying I would drop by quickly to grab some clothes before I would stay the night at Luke's hotel.
"Goodmorning", "are you excited for school tomorrow?"
"Yes because you're going to be there"
"Awww Lukey you're too cute"
"What do you want to do today?"
"Hang around here, watch movies and play video games"
"Sounds good to me"
"I'm glad to trust me again Chloe"
