Luke Hemmings. What more is there to say about a childhood best friend who forgot you?


11. Chapter Eleven

Luke's POV

Right after Alexis left, I told the boys that I was running to the grocery store to pick up something for my mum. I also told them that they could keep practicing their instruments.

It was a bold-faced lie, but luckily, they bought it.

As Calum, Michael, and Ashton trickled back down into the basement, I snuck upstairs into to my bedroom and quickly grabbed my acoustic guitar. Then, I ran back downstairs and hastily exited my house.

I crossed the street fairly quickly, and in no time, I was at Mia's house.

Well Luke, you got yourself over here. Now what are you going to do?

I had to think for a minute until I came up with a plan.

I looked up to see Mia's balcony that was outside of her room.

Perfect. Now I just need to find out how to get up.

My initial idea was that I was going to go inside of Mia's house and play a song to her, but clearly, that wasn't going to happen. I honestly had no clue how I was even going to get to her.

I just decided to climb up the lattice her house had alongside the wall. It didn't look to sturdy. but it was work a shot.

I wrapped my fingers around two of the crosses and started climbing. My guitar was wrapped around me with it's strap, so I had just turned it around so it would lie on my back.

I inched up the lattice slowly at first, and then a little bit faster as I got the hang of it. I could tell I probably looked weird.

I hope no one drives by...They'll probably think I'm a stalker or murderer or something...

I chuckled a little bit at the thought. What a sight that would be!

When I finally reached Mia's balcony, I somehow managed to pull myself up onto it, and I gained my balance.

I was going to knock on her balcony door, but then I realized if she was asleep, or worse, awake, then she would get freaked out that someone was watching her. Technically, that is the truth, but it's a little bit different, I think....

I took a deep breath and started strumming. I had started writing a song about her a while ago, but I had never had the motivation to finish it. That is, until now.

I started singing the lyrics I had written about her~

Wait, don't tell me, heaven is a place on earth,

I wish I, could rewind, all the times that I didn't ,

Show you what you're really worth,

The way, you held me, I wish that I had put you first

I was wrong I admit, numb from your kiss

While you were slipping through my fingertips...

Taking every breath away,

With all of the mistakes I made,

From all the letters that I saved,

This is everything I didn't say....

All of a sudden, I saw the balcony door open slowly and Mia stepped out. She looked shocked, yet pleased. I smiled and kept singing.

I wish I could have made you stay, 

And I'm the only one to blame,

I know that it's a little too late,

This is everything I didn't say...

Mia's POV

I woke up instantly upon hearing a guitar outside. I looked at my clock. It was only 11:26 pm, and I noticed I hadn't been asleep for very long.

I decided to get out of bed to see who was playing, and then I notice there was some soft singing as well. It sounded like...


And that wasn't all...I also picked up on the fact that the music was coming from outside my door...on my balcony.

I slowly turned to look outside and I saw Luke, standing outside, while singing and playing a beautiful song.

I was really surprised. I lifted my hand to my doorknob and opened the door. I stared at him, dazed by his handsomeness, for about the billionth time. He smiled back at me and kept playing.

Once he finished the song, I ran over to him and gave him a huge hug. Then, as I realized the awkwardness of the situation, I quickly released.

"Sorry," I mumbled while blushing.

"Don't be." He smirked back.

"Soooo..." I said as if I had forgotten about how to act in a social situation.

"So, what did you think?" He asked

"It was great!" I responded. "Did you write it?"

"Yeah.." He responded while rocking on his feet. "It's about someone really special to me..." He trailed off.

My heart jumped. I somehow knew he was talking about me.

"Can I hear the lyrics?" I asked. "I was half-asleep when you sang the first part."

He laughed and started speaking them. Then he stopped, right in the middle of telling them to me.

"Why'd you stop? Keep going!" I teased. 

He looked straight into my eyes, and I felt like he could see into my soul, but not into a creepy way. More like a comforting way.

"I stopped because some of the lyrics don't make sense."

"What ly-" I was cut off by his lips pressing up against mine.

I was shocked for a minute, and then I kissed back. His soft lips felt so good against mine. It felt so natural.

Our lips moved in sync for a couple of minutes, until we both pulled away.

"Now. Now the lyrics are right." He smiled. "The song says 'Numb from your kiss,' but we had never actually kissed. Now we have, and it was even more amazing then I had ever imagined." 

He lowered then his voice down to a whisper. "I've always wanted to do that. Ever since we were little."

I was still stunned. I felt like I was on top of the world.

However, in some miraculous way, I managed to say, "Me too."

We sat on my balcony for what seemed like forever, just gazing at the stars before I remembered I had a question to ask him.

"Luke?" I said looking at him. '"I know that you have always known who I was. Why did you pretend to forget me?"

I could feel tears in the corners of my eyes.

He looked at me and hugged me, nuzzling his chin on my head. 

"I thought you didn't love me back. Remember that day I got hit?" 

I slowly nodded.

"I told you my true feelings. and when you didn't say anything back, I was crushed and embarrassed. I thought if I had pretended to forget you, we could just start over, but we didn't. I was just some stupid kid, and you were a pretty girl who wanted nothing else to do with me, so I left. I became friends with new people. I was hurt, but I tried to stop thinking about you. it worked for awhile, but my feelings never went away. I still love you."

I was shocked at what he told me. He was right. That night he had told me he loved me. I can remember it now. For all these years, my brain told me he liked me. Not loved me.

The story all made sense now.

I pushed his shoulders, signaling for him to stop hugging me and instead look at me.

"I never stopped loving you, either. That day I meant to say something back to you, but I was so happy, I couldn't speak up. Then you got hit and..." I trailed off. The memories were too hard. A tear rolled down my cheek.

Luke gently wiped it off with his thumb as he talked.

"We're together now, and that's all that matters." He told me while kissing my forehead. "Goodnight, Mia. I love you."

With that, he shimmied down the lattice, hopped onto the ground, sprinted across the street and went inside to his house. 

"I love you too!" I shouted as he ran away.

I spun back into my room and screamed into my pillow.

He loves me.

Luke's POV

As I walked back down into the basement, I noticed the only one left was Ash. He had a goofy grin plastered on his face.

"That was a pretty long trip to the grocery store, eh Lukey?" He said while motioning to the clock. It was 12:13 pm.


"So what were you really doing?" He asked, smirking.

"Promise you won't tell Cal or Mikey?" I asked.

"If I must." He joked, pretending to be annoyed.

I took a deep breath and told him the whole thing. Once I finished, his jaw was hanging open.

"Really?" He asked in disbelief.

"Really. " I stated in order to confirm his thoughts. "And she loves me back."

Ash smiled really wide at me and I did the same back to him.

"Good job, Luke." He said, patting me on the back. 

With that, he grabbed his drumsticks and packed up. He left moments later, leaving me to my thoughts.

Tonight has been the best night ever. I finally got the girl of my dreams. 

I was on cloud nine, until I remembered the thing about Mason liking Mia.

My heart sank. I had to talk to him. I just got this girl after years of trying, and there was no way I was going to give her up now.
