Attached // Luke Hemmings

"I thought I could get to know you better without getting attached, but I failed!"


7. Chapter 7.

It's been a week since I've seen Luke and the boys. And Emily. Not like I'm surprised about that, though. Every time she starts dating anyone, she abandons her friends. I'm getting sick and tired of it. From today on out, I'm going to stop being everybody's little rebound girl. After you graduate from school, you get to know who your real friends are. 

I stared at myself in the mirror lost in my thoughts. I'm sick of people walking all over me. through my whole high school years, all I had were fake friends. Friends who talk about you behind your back. Starts rumours about you. Abandons you once they start getting in relationships. The only reasons why I stuck around with Emily was because our moms are best friends and used to hang out all the time. 

I snapped back to reality and pulled my hair up into a bun, seeing I don't have any plans for today. I walk over to my closet, skimming through my wardrobe. I finally found a decent, Orange crop top and light blue denim shorts. Changing into them, I grabbed my phone from the night stand and started making my way downstairs. 

I decided to make myself pancakes with bacon because come on, who doesn't like bacon? After about forty minutes, it was done. I grabbed my plate from the counter, sliding the pancakes and bacon on it. I then poured myself a glass of milk and walked into the living room, setting my breakfast on the table. Of course, when I'm busy doing something, my phone vibrates. I clicked the button so the screen lights up. 1 new message; Luke. I clicked open. 

Luke: Hey babe um, I have something to tell you so, can you drop by my place when you're free? Love you xx 

I furrowed my eyebrows and clicked reply. 

Me: Hey. Sure, I'll drop by when I finish eating. 

He messaged back immediately with an 'okay' and I set my phone down beside me on the couch. I reached for the remote that's on the table and turned on the TV, changing the channel to MTV where The Vampire Diaries was on marathon. 

After finishing my food, I put the dishes in the sink, washing them after. Since Luke apparently has something urgent to tell me, I walked back to my bedroom and over to my dresser, taking my bun out and letting my hair fall over my shoulders. I grabbed a hair tie from the dresser and tied my hair into a ponytail. 

Walking back downstairs, I slipped on my shoes and grabbed my keys that were hung on the wall. I walked out on the porch and turned around, locking the door behind me. A light, warm breeze brushed my cheeks as I made my way over to my car. 

It only took me about ten minutes to get to Luke's house. I got out of my car and made my way up the stairs to the door. I was just about to knock when the door swung open and there stood Calum who looked like he was just about to head out somewhere. 

"Hey, Alexis." He greeted me with a warm hug and moved aside to let me in. Luke appeared from the living room and smiled, walking over to me. Something about his expression made me feel a little uncertain, like, something was wrong. 

"Well, I'm heading home now. See you guys later," I waved to Calum and he waved, slowly closing the door behind him. I turned back to Luke and he motioned to walk with him to the living room. I followed him into the living room and sat down on the couch. 

"Well?" He looks up at me and I raise my eyebrows. He sighs and runs his hand through his hair. 

"The band and I just signed papers to tour with One Direction on their Take Me Home Tour." I smile and nod my head. 

"That's amazing!" He smiles -- which I can tell is fake by the way -- and shrugs his shoulders. 

"But," he cuts himself off and looks down at the ground. 

"But what?" He shakes his head looking up again, this time making eye contact. 

"We'll be gone for six months starting next Sunday." My smile falls from my  face and I stand up, turning to face him. 

"Next Sunday? But-but that's in nine days," Luke stands up, wrapping me in a warm, comfortable hug. I feel a tear trickle down my cheek and absorb in Luke's Tee shirt. He pulls away and wipes away my tears with his thumb. 

"babe shh," He wraps his arms around my waist and rests his forehead on mine. "I promise those six months will go by fast. We'll Skype and text everyday, you can even fly down to come to some of the tour dates if you want." I take a deep breath not knowing why I'm being so emotional today. He lowered his head, his lips finding mine. I wrapped my arms around his neck, his still on my waist. We pull away after a few minutes and rest our foreheads against each others. 

"I love you," I freeze in shock, looking up at him. We've only been dating for a little bit over a week and never would have thought those three words would already be mentioned. After not saying anything back, Luke steps back, so we aren't touching each other anymore. "You didn't say it back." He didn't question it. He stated it. I made eye contact with him and seen his eyes were full of pain....or anger? I took a deep breath before answering him. 

"We've only been dating for a week Luke." He scrunches up his eyebrows. 

"So?" I really don't have the energy to fight right now. Especially not with Luke. 

"Listen, I'm not in the mood for an argument right now. I think it's too early for those specific words. You don't actually mean them. I'm going to head home now," I spun around, walking towards the door. 

"You can't tell me when it's okay to use those words. I say it's not too early and I'll say it again. I love you, Alexis and I can tell you right now that I mean it." I turn around, looking at him. I'm not sure how I'm feeling right now. Do I actually like him enough to say that I love him? In my mind, you can't determine love within a week. It's too early. I still don't know stuff about him and I for sure know he knows nothing about me. 

"You can't determine love within a week, Luke. You just can't. We know nothing about each other. I sometimes still feel like we're strangers. And..if you really actually 'loved' me, you would've called or messaged me asking how I was doing for the past week." He looked like he was going to argue back but I cut him off before he could continue this non sense. "If you hear from Emily tell her you haven't heard from me today. Talk to you later." I once again turned around and walked through the door without any interruptions this time.
