2. Chapter 2

Grace’s POV


“Luke are you ok?” I was so worried about how he would react to Ashton and me dating and now that I know he is upset about it I am even more worried. He slightly nodded his head and got up from the table walking through the empty restaurant.

“I don’t think he is ok,” Calum said from the other side of the table.

I looked over to Ashton who was seated next to me. He looked confused just as the rest of the boys did. I moved closer to him to whisper in his ear, “I think I should go check on him.”

He nodded, “Ok babe hurry back.” I kissed his lips quickly ignoring Mike and Calum’s comments and then went to go find Luke. I saw the waitress for our table and walked up to her. “Did you see the blonde haired boy who was sitting at my table walk by here?”

She smiled, “I did he walked into the bathroom a few minutes ago.”

I thanked her before walking over to the men’s bathroom door and knocking. There was no answer so I decided it would be best to walk right in. There were two stalls and four urinals in the small room. The blue walls matched the white tile that covered the floor. “Luke are you in here?” I received no answer and went to go check the first stall. It was empty. I was about to look in the second one when the door behind me opened. I stood frozen where I was standing.

I heard a laugh, “What are you doing in here?”

My shoulders relaxed. “I was looking for you.” I turned and met Luke’s red eyes. “Were you crying?”

Luke turned his head away from me, “Why did you come in here to find me? Why did you want to find me?”

“The waitress told me you went in here. Obviously she was wrong.” A small smile appeared on his lips, but vanished within seconds. “And I came to find you because you’re my friend and I could tell you were upset.”

“Friend.” The word came out of his mouth quietly, but I could still hear the sadness in his voice.

“I care about you Luke you know that and I know that me being with Ashton upsets you, but you have to tell me why or else I can’t help you.”

His eyes met mine again, “You know why.”

“Actually I don’t and if you are just going to make me feel bad and not even tell me why it upsets you so much then,”

“You’re right I was being stupid let’s just go back and eat,” He smiled but I could tell he was hiding his sadness.

I nodded and went to reach for his hand. He pulled away before I could reach it. “I actually came in here to use the bathroom so you could just go back without me.”

“Oh ok.”


Luke’s POV

Why am I so fucking stupid? I should have just told her how I feel about her. And the look on her face when I pulled my hand away from her will haunt me for days. I really did come in here to use the bathroom I wasn’t lying about that. I just couldn’t hold her hand knowing she could never be mine. She was with Ashton now and I would just have to get used to that.

When I got back to the table I saw the food we had ordered was on the table. Grace was in the middle of laughing at something Calum had said so I knew she wasn’t to upset about what had happened in the bathroom.

“Luke’s back!” Michael shouted when he saw me walking over to them.

“You ok?” Ashton wondered.

“Just needed some air.” I said. Grace must not have said anything when she came back.  I looked at Grace who was busy eating her hamburger. My heart tore a little when I saw Ashton’s arm slung around Grace’s shoulders. He leaned over and whispered something to here. A tiny smile appeared on her lips and I am guessing I don’t want to know what he said.

We finished eating about 20 minutes later and piled into our bus. “Hey Grace how long are you going to be with us?” Cal asked her while Ashton was picking a movie for all of us to watch.

“A week. I don’t think I could stay in a tiny bus with four messy boys for more than that.”

“Hey you love these four messy boys,” I countered.

“You’re ok I guess,” she tried to keep a serious expression but the ends of her lips were creeping up.

“This movie is awesome you will love it,” Ashton said handing me the DVD. Grace got up to come see the movie he chose.

“Isn’t this a scary movie?” Grace asked worriedly. Grace hates scary movies something Ashton obviously didn’t know.

“It is, but don’t worry I’ll protect you,” Ashton sat down on the couch and pulled Grace onto his lap.

“How nice of you,” she smiled and then kissed his lips. I couldn’t seem to be able to turn away and with each second that passed by I became even more depressed.

“Come on Luke put the movie in,” Michael told me. I was knockes out of my trance placed the disc in the player and sat down on the couch next to Calum. This is going to be a long movie.
