Michael sits beside me. "I have a hint for you." He tells me. I face him and nod. "What is it?" "He's shy and afraid to ask you out now that you're single." I nod and listen to the Christmas music blast. "Okay," Michael gets up and leaves. "Damn,this is really stressing me out." I whisper. "Seems to be," I jump. "Calm down,Emily. Jumpy lately?" Luke laughs. I playfully hit his arm. "Can't I just know who he is?" I ask putting my forehead on his shoulder. "Nope." "Why not?" "Just cause it's funnier to watch you." "Sure it is." Then it dawns on me. He's the guy. He's the mystery person. Luke still likes me. Of course he does! That's why he started this! Or maybe it's someone else. I don't consider Luke shy and plus we talk everyday. "Don't worry. You'll find out in approximately...now." He gets up and goes onto the stage,as well as Michael,Cal,and Ashton. This is weird. 'Maybe it's Chris or someone like him.' I say in my head. "Hey!" Luke's voice fills the room. "So,this song is going to a girl,who's gotta be listening very closely. She's been looking for a guy all night and now it's gonna be revealed. I see Ashton make a puzzled face. He's not in on this,is he? The start playing a song I've never heard.
"Can I have a minute? I need to tell you something." It begins. The song plays and I listen and make my way to the stage but stop at this line. "How this would end if you knew it was me" I was right! It's Luke! Or maybe Calum. But most likely Luke!
The songs ends and Luke winks at me and I give him a small smile. "What a guy,am I right?" Mali Koa scares me. What is with the siblings of the guys scaring me? God. "Yeah." "So,when are you and Ash getting back together? A week or two?" She asks,jokingly. "Hey. That's not cool." I laugh. "You shouldn't even bother dating Luke if you're just gonna go back to Ashton." "What do you mean?" The guys begin play another song. Mali puts her elbow on my shoulder and takes a sip of her hot cocoa. "In the past,you and Ash just had arguments and said you broke up. But then,you turned around,apologized and got back together. So,why date Luke,just to break up with him,and go back to Ashton?" I stare up at the stage. "Maybe Ashton and I aren't getting back together this time." "Keep thinkin' that,honey." Mali walks away before I could respond to her. I stand there,doing nothing. Sydney texts me,telling me she's getting a taxi to go home. I say okay and put my phone in my little purse. I look up to find it's the end of the song and Ashton is looking down at his phone. Christmas music blasts through speakers and my phone buzzes in my purse. I pull it out and find a text from Ashton.
Him:please answer me
him: I know your mad.
him: I'm really sorry,please come talk to me.
him: Meet me at your old balcony at 12 am
I read the last one over and over until Luke comes up to be,smiling broadly. I shove my phone in my purse and smile back. "Hi." I say. "Hi." He replies. "You did great." "Thanks." "So,wanna go out sometime?" "I'll have to think about that." "Take your time." Luke walks away and I laugh to my self. Nows the bad part,Luke or Ashton?
