*Third Person POV*
It was now September 2nd, Luke was due to come home on the 5th. It was around 6pm when Luke had called Michael to inform him that his management had changed their minds and decided Luke wasn't allowed to go home until their tour was over. The tour doesn't start until the 19th but they just didn't understand the point of letting Luke go back to LA and then having to fly him back to Sydney 2 weeks later. Their tour was a couple months long, they were playing 2 shows in Australia, a dozen in Europe, and then ending it with one final show in their hometown. 93 more days without Luke. He'd barely made it through the 2 weeks they've already spent apart, how was he ever going to make it through 3 more months?
Luke had also asked Michael for an update on whether or not he'd heard from Jeremy since he'd been gone. Jeremy was nowhere to be seen. Maybe he'd been thrown in jail? Maybe Karma finally decided to come back and bite him in the ass and got him run over by a semi-truck? Or maybe he'd just given up. They both hoped he'd just given up even though it was unlikely. If he was still watching Michael he wasn't making it as obvious as he used to. It scared Luke that Mikey was home alone all the time and was an easy target for Jeremy to hurt again if he wanted to.
What broke Luke's heart the most was that he wouldn't get to be with Michael on his birthday. He'd wanted him to have this perfect day on his birthday but now he wouldn't be there to celebrate it with him because of his job. He wished his job wouldn't get in the way of him being with the love of his life. He'd considered leaving the band a couple times since the Jeremy situation but he doesn't want to disappoint and upset so many fans. And besides he's living his dream, well one of them at least. Most nights he dreams of living the rest of his life with Michael.
