4. the day
I woke up and saw Luke next to me "LUKE!" I said and he chuckled "what are you doing here?" I asked rubbing my eyes "your mom let me in" he laughed "Ugh let me sleep" I said and closed my eyes "NO!" He said and started jumping in bed "You better wake uuuuuppp!!!" He yelled and I threw a pillow on him."Stop" I said and he laid down next to me.I rested my head on his chest and he wrapped his arm around me.That's just how we are."Luke I thought I told you to wake her up" I heard my mom said "I did but this is what happened" he said and she laughed "wake her up or you two will be late for school" she said."I don't want to go to school" I said "you have to" Luke said stroking my hair "but they're mean and why do I have to be there where everyone is mean to me when I can just stay here with you?" I said "I'll get you ice cream but only if you come" He said making me open one eye "get ready" he said.
After I got ready we both had breakfast and walked to school."Last night I heard mom and dad talking about moving to England" Luke said staring at the ground "WHAT!?! No! You can't go! You can't leave me" I said stopping and looking at him "I don't know if it's true I mean I could be wrong" he said and we kept walking.
We got to school and the usual everyone calling us names.I got to math and sat down in my seat waiting for Luke.He walked in and sat down next to me like always."Are you thinking about the England thing?" He whispered "yes,Luke because you're my best friend and I don't know what I'll do without you" I whispered and he sighed.
We went outside and sat down under a tree like we always do."You know what?" He said looking at me in the eyes "I promise you I won't ever ever leave you" he said "never?" I asked "never" he reassured.
We were in my backyard listening to Good Charlotte."Luke!" Liz called "I have to go" Luke said hugging me "bye,Lukey" I said.After he left,I went inside and saw mom and Liz talking."Hey,Lyric" Liz said "Hey" I said "Honey,the Hemmings are moving to England" said mom "will Luke go?" I asked even though I knew she'll say yes "of course" Luke said.I ran outside and sat on the steps.I felt an arm wrap around me.I looked up and saw Luke."You promised" I whispered and he pulled me closer to him crying."I can't leave you" he cried "I love you,Lyric" he said and he both stared at each other "what?" I whispered "I love you,I've always had and not as a friend" he said and I hugged him "I love you too" I said
