"Alexandra, Alex wake up," Spencer exclaimed, shaking me
"Why?" I groaned, rolling over so my face was buried in my pillows.
"Because Luke and Michael are going to show us around and stuff, so get up," She told me, pulling on my arm.
"I'll get up if you answer my question," I told her, still curious about what Michael said yesterday about her and Luke.
"Go for it," she said, sitting down on the bed.
"It's about... you and Luke," I mumbled, hearing her sighing.
"What about Luke and I?" She asked, looking down at her hands in her lap.
"What happened at the party between you two?"
"Nothing," she lied, standing up, "now get up, we have to get ready," she mumbled, changing the subject.
"Please Spence," I begged, "I won't get out of this bed until you tell me," I threatened.
"Fine," she sighed, sitting down again.
"At the party... after those people I was talking to left, I went and sat by Luke, we started talking and next thing I know we were kissing. We left the house and went to his hotel." She paused but didn't continue.
"And nothing..." She lied again.
"Spencer, I can tell you're lying, so tell me the rest," I edged her on.
"Nothing happened, okay!" She exclaimed, standing up, "we just made out a little and he asked me out on a date, that's why we left yesterday."
"Sorry," I mumbled. I knew she didn't like to talk about things but I still want her to be able to so.
"It's okay," she murmured, "I'm sorry for getting mad," she apologized, running her hand through her hair.
"It's alright," I mumbled, "now, come on. We have to get ready." I told her climbing out of bed as she walked into the bathroom.
*5 Minutes Later*
Spencer and I were just watching re-runs of The Walking Dead as we waited for the boys to get here.
I looked at my appearance and smiled because I was happy with what I was wearing today.
I had on a black and green t-shirt, black legging, and my ordinary black Vans. I didn't really want to bother with my hair today so I just put it to the side.
Spencer was wearing what she usually wears. Black Toms, black skinny jeans, and a red and grey Mice of Men t-shirt.
Her hair teased a little like she always does. She must've borrowed some red dye from Michael last night and dyed it so it was no longer blue. It was fading out anyways.
Spencer was into the show but I really wasn't so I started messing around on my phone. I opened up the Wattpad app on there and started to read a little.
I heard Spencer's phone go off but I didn't pay much attention to it.
"They're downstairs, come on," Spencer told me and we stood up.
I quickly grabbed some money, Spencer doing the same, and we left our room.
We sat in the elevator in complete silence. It wasn't an awkward silence, but I guess we just didn't feel like talking.
As the elevator stopped on the first floor we got off and started searching for Luke and Mike.
"Over there," I told Spencer as I spotted Luke and Michael standing in the lobby. We walked up to them and as soon as Luke spotted us he walked over to us, mainly towards Spencer.
Once, he got closer, he pulled Spencer into a hug, causing her to laugh.
Continuing to walk, I went to Michael. "What up with them?" I asked him as Luke and
Spencer continued to hug.
"I think they're a thing now, but I'm not to sure," Michael informed me, typing something in his phone.
"Since when?" I exclaimed to him.
"Last night," Michael told me.
"What the fu-" before I could even finish my sentence Luke and Spencer walked over it us.
"So you two are a thing now, huh?" I asked the two.
"Uh... I-I don't know.. yet," Luke stuttered his words a little, staring into Spencer's eyes, causing her to blush madly.
"Okay then," I mumbled, "you guys gonna show us around or what?" I asked Luke and Michael, raising my eyebrows questionably.
"Yeah, come on," Michael said, putting his phone in his pocket and we walked out of the hotel and into the car Luke and Mike brought with them.
Michael and I were in the front seat while Luke and Spencer were in the back seat. "So what'd you guys do last night?" I asked bored of the silence.
"Nothing... Luke was gone for hours," Michael said.
I burst out laughing. "What?" He asked.
"Spencer was gone for the longest time. Last night," I laughed raising my eyebrows up and down.
"What?" He asked, "oh shit! Luke must've got lucky last night then!" He exclaimed loudly.
We laughed at them for a bit.
"Shut up!" Spencer exclaimed, punching Michael's shoulder.
"What?" He asked.
"Just shut the hell up!" Spencer exclaimed to him.
"Fine, fine," Michael exclaimed, "doesn't mean it didn't happen though," he murmured quietly, making sure Luke and Spencer didn't hear him.
"Shhhhh," I whispered to him, for some reason, I ended up adding a 't' at the end.
"Whatever, you know it's true," Michael whispered to me chuckling.
"Possibly," I laughed.
Mike just smiled.
"Actually... what did you guys do last night?" I asked Luke and Spencer, "it was almost midnight when you came back," I said, turning in my seat to look back at the two.
"I don't know... stuff," Luke said in reply to my question.
I narrowed my eyes at him, looking between Luke and Spencer.
"Sure," I said sarcastically.
"Well what'd you do? Ash said Calum didn't come back to the room three hours after they left." Luke said in defense.
"Nothing, he stayed for like twenty minutes after you all ditched me then he left too. Ask him, I'm not concerned about anything he does." I somewhat argued back.
"Sure," Luke replied sarcastically, "that's not what I heard." He added.
"Fuck off, dude. Whatever you heard-" I started but Spencer cut me off.
"Can you two stop?" Spencer said, almost about to laugh, "guys, all Luke and I did was go to a movie before we hung out in the park for a while." She said to me, "and Luke, her and Calum barely even hung out... just calm down, alright?" She said to him, grabbing his hand in hers.
I chuckled at the two.
"So, where're we going?" I asked Michael.
"Anywhere and everywhere," he answered my question.
"Wow, so specific," I sarcastically said in reply.
"Hey, can we go to a zoo or something?" Spencer spoke up from the backseat.
"Yeah, can we?" I asked Mike.
"Yeah sure, I guess," he agreed, laughing at Spencer.
Mike drove us to a zoo and pulled up through a pair of large metal gates. He quickly parked the car and we all jumped out.
Spencer and I immediately ran over to the panda exhibit.
"Is it weird I wanna take one back home?" Spencer asked, smiling at the panda that was walking towards her.
"No," I shook my head, watching the small panda, "because I want one myself," I laughed.
"Where'd the boys go?" Spencer asked, looking around.
I did too and I didn't see them anywhere near.
"Probably ditched us," I shrugged, "wanna go check out the koalas?" I asked her, tearing my gaze away from the cuddly pandas.
"Yeah sure," she agreed and we began walking.
We found the exhibit with a little help of the maps placed around the areas.
"So," I nudged her shoulder, "you and Luke, huh?" I teased, somewhat making a conversation.
"What about me and Luke?" She asked, nudging my shoulder back.
"You two dating?" I asked her.
"What- no. Who said that?" She asked, sounding very confused.
"Michael," I told her, "said you two became a "couple" last night," I said, putting air quotes around the word.
"No. Plus, I'm not looking forward to being relationships at the moment," she shrugged.
I only nodded.
"Look, there's the koalas," she said, pointing at a cage.
We stood in front of the cage, staring in at the koalas.
I don't know why, but my mind wandered to last night.
I made a mistake agreeing to his offer. I wasn't thinking at all when I agreed.
"Alex, you alright?" Spencer asked, placing her hand on my shoulder, knocking me out of my thoughts.
"Yeah," I nodded, "what were you saying?" I asked, looking back to the animals.
"I was saying we should go find the boys, the zoo will be closing soon," she told me and I nodded.
"You wanna call or should I?" I asked, reaching into my pocket in case I had to grab my phone.
"I'll call Luke," she said, pulling her phone out, dialing a number in, placing the phone to her ear.
"I'll be over there," I said, pointing to an exhibit with an animal I had no idea the name of it.
Spencer just nodded before she went back to her call.
My phone vibrated in my pocket.
It was coming from an unknown number.
"Hello...?" I answered questionably.
"Where you at?" A familiar voice asked through the phone.
"Why does it matter?" I asked him.
"Because I'm asking," he said, "and I also want to see you." He added.
"How about, no." I told him, seeing Spencer get with done her phone call.
I held my hand up in a hold-up motion.
"Come on, Alexandra. Just one last time before I leave the country," he tried to convince me.
I paused, thinking for a moment.
"You still there?" He questioned through the phone.
"Yeah," I murmured, "I'll think about it." I said through the phone.
"I got to go," I quickly told him, hanging up before he could say anything else.
Just then I seen 'Muke.' They were making their way over to us.
"Heeeeeello." Michael giggled. His laugh is so cute.
"Did you see the penguins?!" Luke exclaimed loudly.
"No, where they at?" Spencer asked him excitedly.
She has a thing for penguins. I swear she has fifty stuffed penguins.
"The map thing said the exhibit is near the polar bears," I heard Luke respond to Spencer.
"Let's go then," Spencer said smiling, grabbing Luke's hand and pulling him towards the penguin exhibit.
"Should we follow them or...?" I asked Michael, glancing at Luke and Spencer practically running towards the penguins.
"Nah, I'm not really in the mood to see any lovey dovey shit." He replied shrugging his shoulders, staring at the pandas in the cage in front of us.
"Well, what are you in the mood for?"
"Pizza." He replied, grinning excitedly.
Five minutes later, we were sitting at a table of a pizza place placed inside the zoo park.
"Wanna play twenty questions?" Michael asked before taking a bite out of his pizza.
"Sure," I agreed.
"Where you from?" He asked me.
"Billings, Montana." I answered.
"Big or small city?"
"Modern or country?"
"She's really your sister then?" Michael asked surprised. I guess I didn't really bring it up to him that much.
"Yeah. Dad cheated on my mom with hers." I told him.
"Oh," I heard him mumble, "I kind of just thought you two were really good friends who called each other sisters."
"Yeah, we found out a little while ago." I said in reply.
He only nodded, "got a boyfriend?"
"No..." I trailed off, thinking of how that question just sounded weird alone.
"I never really got around to asking, how old are you anyway?"
"HA, I'm older." Michael said smirking evilly.
"Whatever," I laughed at him.
He laughed too.
"Furthest place you've ever travelled?"
"Here. I don't travel much." I replied to him shrugging.
He opened his mouth to ask another question but paused for a moment.
"I'm out of questions..." He said, chuckling.
I smiled and chuckled at him.
"Hey, look, it's the happy couple." Michael said, nodding his head behind me.
I turned to look out the window behind me.
I smiled at how genuinely happy Spence looked with Luke.
Her and Luke were walking around. Luke swung his arm around her shoulder, pulling her closer to him. Leaning down he kissed the top of her head, causing Spence to smile and blush madly.
"I'm so confused. How can a day where we all hang out as friends turn into a date for them?" Michael asked, his voice sounding confused.
"Shut up. I haven't see Spencer this happy in a while, so leave them alone," I chuckled at him.
I looked back at him and realized he already finished the pizza.
"What? I was hungry!" He exclaimed, holding his hands up defensively.
I just laughed at him.
"Come on, let's go see them before things get even worse." Michael said, standing up out of his seat.
I followed his movements, him and I walking out of the pizza place.
"Hey Spence!" I called out, running over to the two.
I chuckled as I heard Michael groan before he was running beside me.
"Oh, hey." Spence said once Mike and I got near the two.
We stopped in the middle of the walkway.
"Where'd you guys go?" Luke asked Michael.
"To get pizza. What about you?"
"Walked around." Luke replied.
"Oh," Mike mumbled quietly.
"I think we should go, they made an announcement a little bit ago that the zoo was going to close soon." Spencer told them all.
"Yeah," I agreed, "I call shotgun!" I exclaimed.
T W E N T Y M I N U T E S L A T E R
We currently heading back to the hotel.
"Going to the zoo wasn't exactly what I had in mind," I said to Mike as he continued to drive.
"Blame Hemmo, he's the one that ran away." Michael said in reply.
"I didn't even. We said where we were going, you two ditched us." Luke cut in, trying to defend himself.
"Blah blah blah."
"You two remind me of little kids." Spencer said from the backseat.
"They act like little kids at times." I said, looking back to face her.
"We do not!" Luke and Michael shouted in unison.
"Do too!" Spencer and I called back.
"Psssh, I'm the only punk rock MAN here. I dropped out of school." Michael said, trying to make a point.
"I AM finishing school." Spencer told him, looking his way.
"Dropout." Spencer fired back.
"Smurf." Michael decided to call Spencer.
"Are you saying I talk a lot?" Michael asked, sounding somewhat offended.
"Eh.. just a little." Spencer replied to him.
"Damn you." Michael said to Spencer, looking in the rear view mirror to send her a small but playful glare.
"You dye your hair too much."
"I do not!" Spencer exclaimed defensively.
I thought about it, "he's kind of right."
"Well what about him?" She exclaimed, sounding offended, "when I first met him he had blue hair, now look at it." She said, pointing to his bleach blonde hair.
"When I first met you, you had blue hair too. Now look at what color it is." Michael said, staring at Spencer's bright red hair.
"Well..." Luke and I laughed at the two as Spence paused for a moment, "well your hair's already thinning. Mine is completely fine." She told him, trying her best not to laugh.
"It's not even!" Michael shouted in response, causing us all to laugh.
"That wasn't even funny," Mike said smiling once our laughing died down a bit.
"Just a little." I chuckled at him.
"We here!" Luke shouted loudly, but it sounded a lot like 'we he.'
"Shut up!" Michael shouted at Luke.
"Your not my dad!" Luke screamed out as Mike parked the car before Luke literally jumped out of the car, running to the front of the hotel doors.
"But I'm your daddy..." I heard Michael mutter as he killed the engine.
"What?" Spencer exclaimed at Michael as her and I stared at him with the same grossed out look.
"I'm kidding," he chuckled in reply, "that's Ashton's thing."
"What the hell?" Spencer and I exclaimed in unison.
Michael busted out laughing.
Shaking her head, Spencer opened the car door and got out, closing it behind her. I followed her actions, Mike following mine.
Almost an hour pasted, and I was stuck as a third wheel watching The Walking Dead with Luke and Spencer.
Michael left a few minutes ago, something about important business he had to attend to.
For what felt like the fiftieth time today, my phone buzzed, signaling that I had a text.
"Have you made up your mind?" The message read across the dark screen.
I thought about it before replying, "only if Spencer comes too."
Not even a second later my phone buzzed again, "I'm fine with that, she was like my little sister anyways. I'll meet you both at Keenan's Tavern tomorrow at 5:00?"
"Isn't that a club near the airport?" I asked, the sight of a bright red and blue sign spelling out those words along with drunken people getting into taxis came to mind.
"Yeah but it's the closet place to the airport and I have to leave around-"
"What do you mean go on tour with you?" The sound of Spencer's voice laced with confusion came interrupted me.
I looked over at the two. Luke had his hands placed on his knees as he stared over next to him at Spencer, who was sitting criss-crossed giving him a "what the heck" sort of look.
"I mean come on tour with me. Earlier, you told me you'd give anything to keep yourself from going back home, this could be your chance to get away from that."
"I was over-exaggerating Luke." Spencer said, "I have a lot of stuff going on at home. I have school still, and a job I need. And what about my mom and my brother? I can't just get up and not go home without an explanation." I listened to Spencer rant off.
"Do you really need one?" Luke asked her.
"Yeah, I do one."
"What if I told you Alex could come with?" I heard him ask, catching me by surprise.
"Then I'd say I'd think about it but right now, I don't know." She replied to him, looking over at me.
"When do you leave?" I asked Luke, him looking over at me too.
"Three days. We have a show tomorrow and the night after, then the next morning we get on the bus and leave." He replied to me.
"How long will the tour last?"
"Six months.." Luke answered me, sounding as if he was unsure whether he should've answered or not.
I gave Spencer a serious look, "do you want to go?" I asked her.
It took her a moment to answer before she nodded her head slowly, "yeah... yeah I do." She said in reply.
"Then go." I encouraged her as I stood up, slowly making my way out of the room and into the bedroom area.
"Well what about you? Are you going to come too?" She asked, giving a quick look to Luke and then back to me.
"I'll think about it," I muttered in reply as I reached for the door that separated the lounge room fro the bedroom, "I'm going to go to bed, goodnight." I told the two, closing the door.
Switching my clothes out for a pair of black joggers and a darkish purple muscle tee that said "I got in for free" on the front.
Laying in bed I started to wonder if I should go. I'm sure Spencer wouldn't go unless I went along but I'm honestly not sure if I want to go. And I'm not going to lie, I honestly don't want to go.
Yeah, sure, I like whatever it is that is going on between Luke and Spencer and it makes me happy knowing she's happy. And I genuinely enjoy Michael, Luke, and Ashton's company despite the fact that I hardly know them, but it's Calum that I can't stand.
And I highly doubt being stuck on a bus with him for six months will change anything. But, there's always a first for everything, right?
Waddup, it's that Clifford Kid.
You know, the 13, NOW 14 year old weirdo that annoys everyone? Yeah that kid.
In all honesty, this chapter was just written to be written, and I'm truly sorry if it was boring and extremely long, but oh whale. I suck anyways.
That's about it basically.
I hope you liked this specific chapter and again, sorry if it was boring.
And.. yeah, talk to you all soon hopefully.
