Amnesia

"No. Please, Carter, please don't leave me." His eyes were brimming with tears. He doesn't understand. If I tell him, it'll be him leaving. I had makeup running down my face now. "I'm sorry Luke. I love you." And with that, I left.

"No. Please, Carter, please don't leave me." His eyes were brimming with tears. He doesn't understand. If I tell him, it'll be him leaving. I had makeup running down my face now. "I'm sorry Luke. I love you." And with that, I left.

One Year Later

 

I'm listening to Amnesia on repeat. I know Luke. I miss you too.. Just then, the doorbell rings, and Sophia starts crying. I call out to my little brother, "Alex, can you get the door?" The fourteen year old gets up and answers. He lives with me. Mom died in a car accident a month ago, and Dad walked out four years ago. It was in the will for Alex to live with me. I'm eighteen now, and my baby girl is eleven months old. Luke doesn't know about her, and he never will. Him and his band are starting to get crazy famous, and I'm not going to ruin that. Just then, Alex walks in with someone. "Carter." Alex says. I'm putting Sophia back in her crib. "One sec." I mumble. I look up and see someone I never expected to see again. "Luke. What are you doing here?" I ask.

He looks back and forth between Sophia, Alex, and me. "I.. I found you again. One of Alex's friends.." He trails off. "So they weren't lying. I have.. A daughter.." He says. I just nod. Sophia stands up and puts up her arms, "Mama" she says in her cute little voice. I pick her up, and move her brown hair out of her face. She points at Luke. "Wassat?" She asks. "Luke" I say. "Ook." She tries to say. He walks over to her. "Noooo... Dada" he smiles. I look at him in shock. "Dada!" She leans towards him and he takes her. I walk back over to Alex and he wraps his arms around me. I hug him back and he looks up at me. I honestly don't know what to do.

"Why didn't you tell me.?" He whispers. I take Sophia and hand her to Alex. "Take her to the park. You have your phone, right?" He nods and holds it up. I kiss Sophia, then Alex's forehead. "Be good Soph. Stay with Uncle Alex." They walk out and I turn to Luke. "This is gonna take a while.."

-----------------------------------------------------

"So.. That's why you broke up with me? You thought I wouldn't accept my baby? I would leave you?" He asks. I nod and a tear starts to slip down my cheek. "You were wrong, babe." He smiles and pulls me into a hug. I can't help it. I never stopped loving him. I bury my head into his shoulder, and Alex comes back in with Sophia. "Mama! Dada!" She wriggles out of Alex's arms and runs to me. I hold my arms out wide, and she jumps into them giggling. "I'd like you three to move in with me."

"I don't know.." I say. "Please. Let me make everything right again." I still can't believe what he's doing. "Luke. We can't." I say firmly. "Why not?" He asks. "You'll be on tour." I reply. "Come with us." Oh god. "Really? You want your ex, the daughter you didn't know about, and the ex's brother on tour with you? Makes sense." I reply sarcastically.

"I still love you, Carter! I always will! Just let me love you.. Please. Let me try again." He begs, and I look at him. He leans in and kisses me. All the butterflies I've released over the year come back to me, trying to escape my stomach. I pull away softly. "You can't say you felt nothing." He says.
