2. Chapter 1

March 28th

*Michael's POV*

I work at a fairly large record store just outside of Los Angeles. It's never really crazy busy in here but we get a few handfuls of people every day. I have  to work until 5 pm, which is actually just another half hour til I get to go home. I'm currently organizing records on the shelves since there aren't many people in the shop. The thing is about this job is, I actually really like it. I get to listen to music all day and occasionally help people find a specific record and it's just fun in some ways. After work, I'm probably gonna head to Starbucks before I go home to work on some other things for school.

"Hey, do you know where I can find the Blink-182 records?" I hear behind me.

I turn around and see a boy who looks around my age, he had black hair and his skin was a pretty tan shade.

"Yeah, up against that wall over there," I said while pointing to the other side of the store.

"Okay, thanks." He said before walking away.

I went back to organizing the records on the shelves for a couple minutes until I saw the same boy walking to the cash register. I put down the stack of records that was currently in my hand and I walked to the register to ring him up.

Once I stood on the opposite side of him I could now see he was wearing a Nasa shirt and black skinny jeans.

"It'll be $28.75," I said while placing the record in a bag.

He then handed me a 20 dollar bill along with two 5's. After I gave him his change, he was gone. No one else really came in the store after that. On Saturdays, we aren't very busy which is odd because normally stores are increasingly busy on the weekends. Once it was a few minutes til 5 I decided to grab my stuff and get ready to lock up.


On my way to Starbucks, I listened to the radio and all the songs that are very overplayed. Since the Starbucks wasn't very far from work, I didn't have to deal with the radio music for very long.

Since today I was in a pretty good mood I decided I would actually go into Starbucks instead of making my life easy and just going through the drive thru. I parked fairly close because even though I'm in a good mood, I'm lazy and I don't feel like walking.

When I got inside, I went and stood in line to order. There were only a couple people in front of me so it didn't take very long for me to get to the front.

"Hey, what can I get you?" Asked the barista.

When I looked up at him, I saw the most beautiful boy I have ever seen. He was a few inches taller than me and he had blue eyes and blonde hair. His hair was perfectly styled up in a quiff and he had this lip ring that looked so incredibly hot on him. He also had the most beautiful smile I've seen in my entire life. I guess I had been staring too long and even forgot he asked me a question because soon he was trying to snap me out of it.

"Sir?" He asked trying to get my attention.

He had such a nice accent. I've only heard him say a few words and I already feel like I could just listen to him talk all day long.

"Uhm sorry, uh I'll have a Caramel Frappuccino," I said feeling slightly embarrassed since I had been staring at him.

"Okay, it'll be $3.75 and what's your name?" He said, his accent clearly visible.

"Uh, Michael," I said before handing him a 5 dollar bill and telling him to keep the change. I was hurrying to get out of here mostly because I was really embarrassed that he caught me staring at him.

I moved out of line and went to sit down on one of the couches while I waited for my drink. I looked up for a split second to see if he was laughing at me but when I looked up our eyes met.

He had such beautiful blue eyes that I could still see from across the room. I didn't think I was able to look away, it's like we were lost in each other's eyes.

"Luke get to work!" Yelled an unknown voice.

"Right, sorry." I heard him say before he turned around and got back to work.

So his name is Luke.


"Order for Michael" A familiar voice shouted.

I got up and went to get my drink from the counter and when I looked up, of course, Luke was the one who brought it out to me.

"T-thanks," I told him.

"Anytime." He said smiling.


I got home and was greeted by my golden retriever, Bo.

"Hey boy, you hungry?" I said while petting him.

He wagged his tail and ran to the kitchen, I followed him and poured some food into his bowl. He began to eat while I put my bag down and went to get my laptop from my bedroom. I live alone, sure sometimes it gets lonely but it's fun being able to do whatever I want, whenever I want.

As a sat down on the couch my phone vibrated in my pocket, it was my friend Cayla.


From Cayla: Hey you have to listen to this band!

To Cayla: Are they any good?

From Cayla: Of course, they're good, why would I send you a link to them if they sucked?

To Cayla: I don't know just making sure.

I typed the link she had sent me into my laptop because the YouTube on my phone is slower than hell. After I typed it in, a video came up called 5 Seconds of Summer - Wherever You Are. I clicked on it and put it on full screen so I could watch. As soon as it started a boy appeared on the screen, he looked around 14 or 15 and he was wearing a baby blue tank top. A few seconds later the screen changed to a black and white filter and there were 3 boys who started singing and playing their instruments.

A few seconds had passed and that's when I realized one of the boys singing was Luke from Starbucks. I was so confused yet surprised at how coincidental it was that I had JUST met Luke myself. A few seconds later I discovered that another one of the boys in the video was the one who was in the record store earlier. I decided to look at the comments to see what people thought of them since there were thousands of views.

Elise Johnson: Wow these guys are really good!


5SAUCE_SPNGURL: Love you guys! <3

Emily Catton: One Direction is so much better than these dumbasses.

Justine B: I love these boys so much they make me so happy. Luke, Calum, and Ashton thank you for being so amazing. Love you boys <3

Kevin Schneider: Wow these guys are like a shittier version of All Time Low LMFAO

Sarah Silver: Follow me on twitter everyone I post covers! twitter- sarahxslaysxaf

So far it was mostly good comments, with the occasional hate I guess. I scrolled back up to finish watching the video and all I could really focus on was Luke. He was so beautiful, it was unreal. His voice was so incredibly perfect and when he sang it somehow became even more amazing. Once the video ended I just stared at my laptop for a while. I was trying to decide whether or not I should find out Luke's last name and try to google more information about him or not. I decided not to since I think that's technically stalking. I decided to text Cayla and ask how she happened to find them on the exact day I met two of them.


To Cayla: Wow they are pretty good. How'd you find them?

From Cayla: From time to time I like to try to find new bands and stuff and today I happened to find them :)

To Cayla: Well guess what? I met the blonde one and one of the other ones today not even knowing who they were.

From Cayla: Really? How'd you meet them?

To Cayla: Well one of the came to the shop today and the other I met while ordering at Starbucks.

From Cayla: Wow okay.

To Cayla: The blonde one, Luke, is pretty hot.

From Cayla: I agree.

Bo came and jumped up on the couch with me after he finished his food.

"Hey buddy, wanna watch a movie with me?" I asked the dog who responded by wagging his tail.

"What should we watch? The Hunger Games? Paranormal Activity?"

He barked once.

"The Hunger Games it is," I said while getting up to get the TV remote.

I then went to the kitchen to make some popcorn because Bo really likes it. I know he's a dog and probably shouldn't be eating popcorn but he likes it so I allow it. As I was putting the bag of popcorn in the microwave, Bo was jumping around like crazy.

"Someone's hyper today," I said while petting him once again.

He started jumping in circles and then he ran to get his favorite toy which was a squeaky ball. He dropped it on the floor in front of my feet and wagged his tail before sitting down.

"Okay okay go get it boy," I said while throwing the ball down the hall.

He took off running and by the time he came back the popcorn was already done so I washed my hands and got it out of the microwave. It was already in one of those like pop up bag things so we didn't need a bowl. Once back on the couch, I started the movie and Bo scooted forward so he was laying in front of me.

Every once in awhile, I would feed him a few pieces of popcorn and he would wag his tail. Bo was actually pretty smart for a dog. At the part of the movie where Rue dies, Bo started whimpering and tried to cover his eyes with his paws. Both of us are always sad at this part, especially Bo.

"Awe Bo, it's okay boy," I said while petting him.

When that scene was over we cuddled and continued watching the movie.


After the movie was over it was a little past 8 and I decided it was finally time to work on some stuff for school. I was in my first year of college and so far I'd kept on with my work pretty well but I've been procrastinating a lot this past week. I'd always make up an excuse for not being able to do my work. Then at the last minute, I would work for a very long time and stay up very late finishing work.

Today was one of those days where I'd been putting it off since I got home and now I had to write a ten-page essay that was due on Monday. I thought about it for a couple minutes and then decided I'd do it tomorrow. I got up and went to the bathroom to brush my teeth and well, go to the bathroom.

A couple minutes later I went back into my room to find Bo already asleep on my bed. I climbed in with him and grabbed my phone so I could set an alarm to wake me up tomorrow morning. I plugged in my phone after that and tried to fall asleep.


After about an hour of not being able to sleep, I went and grabbed my laptop from the living room and took it back to my bedroom. I ended up staying up very late watching 5 Seconds of Summer videos and learning the words to their songs. I had learned in the last hour that I was completely in love with Luke. I also knew there was something I had to do tomorrow, and that was to go back to Starbucks and try to see Luke again.
