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


17. Chapter Seventeen

Mia's POV

I woke up late in the afternoon, tangled in Luke's strong arms. At first, I was sort of confused as to why I was asleep on him, but the thoughts soon reclaimed a spot in my brain.

I looked up at him. He was focused on the television, so I didn't think he would notice if I stared at him for awhile. I decided to use the opportunity to my advantage, taking in every aspect of his face. I swear it was like a masterpiece.

After a couple of minutes, I think Luke finally realized I was daydreaming about him. He smirked and looked down at me.

"I see someone woke up." He giggled. "You like what you see?" He joked.

"Uh, yeah, I do." I awkwardly replied. I could feel a hint of heat rush to my cheeks.

"Aww, you're so cute when you blush, especially when it's because of me"

I started to become even more flushed, and Luke just pulled me closer to him, even though we hardly had any space between us in the first place.

He looked in my eyes and then down at my lips and he leaned in, planting a gentle kiss on my lips. It only lasted for a few seconds, but wow, my stomach erupted in butterflies. It had been a kiss unlike any other that we had shared before. This time felt extra special. It could have been due to the delicateness of his lips, or it might have been the fact that I felt so safe in his arms, or maybe even the slight vanilla scent radiating off of his body

All I knew was that I had never felt so sure of anything in my life. I was positive that I was in love with Luke Robert Hemmings. 

We sat there in silence for a few moments, just enjoying each other's company until Luke sat up quickly, forcing me to get off of him. He then grabbed my hands and turned to face me.

"Mia, Alexis called me." 

"Oh." Was all I managed to say.

"She wanted to know why you weren't in school today,and why you wouldn't respond to any of her texts or return any of her calls. She said she was worried that something awful had happened to you." He rolled his eyes while making quotation marks with his fingers in the air. 

"I can't believe the nerve of her! She should know why I wasn't at school! And to think she is mad at ME for not calling and telling her what was wrong! I mean what does she want me to do? Tell her that I wasn't going to be there today on account of her acting like a bitch? Seriously, what the hell? What did you tell her when she called?" I ranted.

Luke just looked at me with a sly grin, pulling me back onto his chest. "I told her she should fuck off."

"Good boy, Lucas." I joked. I watched as he scrunched his nose. He hated when anyone called him that.

"Hey...." He fake whined. I took the opportunity to tap his nose with my pointer finger.

"Lukey, you are just too adorable. I am so lucky to have you to call mine." I cooed.

"Well duh..." He said in a fake snobby voice while flipping his hand out. Then it changed back to his normal tone. "But I do have to say, as lucky as you think you are to have me, I am ten-thousand times luckier to have you." 

He then squeezed me in his arms to hug me and whispered in my ear.

"Are you still up for that date tonight?" 

I suddenly shot up. I had completely forgotten we had made plans. I had been too busy hanging out with him all day to remember. "Um, yea, but first I have to go home to change into something a bit nicer, okay?"

He giggled, releasing me from his grip. "Of course, princess. Just come back over when your ready. I'll be here waiting for you."

He gave me a cheesy wink as I got up and headed for the door. "I'll be back in an hour or so, okay?"

"Fine with me. Take as much time as you need, Miles." He smiled.

"Will do, Lucy." I laughed.

I opened his door and sprinted across the street up the steps of my house. I had to make myself look presentable.

After all, it was going to be my first date with Luke.

Hopefully, the first of many dates with Luke.

Savannah's POV (For a change)

I still couldn't believe Mia. She was such a sneaky, conniving, bitch.

She probably didn't even know who Luke was until I told her about how much I liked him, and of course, she just had to get a piece of the action. She threw herself at him, and I know it was just to make me jealous.

When school had finished yesterday, I went outside by the flagpole at the front of the building, and to my surprise, I saw Mia talking to Luke. At first, I thought that she was trying to get him to ask me out, and I was really happy. However, once he grabbed her hand and pulled her off somewhere else, I knew that wasn't the case.

I decided I should follow them, so I did. They walked for what seemed like forever, until Luke finally pulled her into a random patch of bushes, which was really quite strange. 

They both started talking about things, but I couldn't really understand many of the words, since their voices were close to whispers. I do think they mentioned my name once or twice though, and I had a feeling Mia was talking down on me, just because she had to find someway to make herself more desirable to Luke. She could probably sense that he was head over heels for me or something.

Finally, after what seemed like forever of me hiding in the surrounding shrub, Luke and Mia did something I wish I could have unseen. They started snogging each other. It hurt me badly. However, the worst was still yet to come. 

He asked her to be his girlfriend.

I still can't believe that. I mean, just because you make-out with someone once doesn't mean that you instantly should start dating. However, if that's the game Luke likes to play, him and I can do just that.

I am going to kiss him tonight, and he will have no choice but to remember that he truly loves me and not Mia. Then, he will dump her sorry ass and come to be with me.

I have the whole thing planned out. In about an hour, I am going to go over to his house to kiss him. That's how I'll get my revenge on Mia. 

I'm going to kill two birds with one stone.

Luke's POV

I was sitting on my couch watching t.v. whilst waiting for Mia to come back over. I couldn't stop thinking about her perfection. I especially couldn't shake the image of her fragile body laying on mine while her eyebrows furrowed lightly, as if she was deep in thought.

All of a sudden, I heard a knock on the door. I darted up to it, and I had assumed it was Mia, since she had been at her house for over an hour, but I was disappointed when I saw annoying Savannah standing in my doorway.

"What do you want?" I asked while rolling my eyes at her.

"Oh, nothing. I just wanted to pay my Luke a quick little visit." She smirked.

My fists clenched into balls when she called me 'her Luke.' The only person I belonged to was Mia.

"How did you even find my house?!" I snapped.

"Yellow Pages." She plainly responded, pretending to be bored. I started to close the door on her when suddenly, she shoved my shoulders, forcing me inside. Then she pushed me up against the wall. 

"I'm here to break the spell Mia has on you, Lukey-Pookey." I could feel her breath on my cheek, since she was only inches away from my lips. I tried to break away, but she just shoved me hard back up against the wall. Then, there was a knock on the door.

My heart dropped. I knew it was Mia.

As soon as the door opened and Mia had a good view of Savannah and I, Savannah forced her lips onto mine. I refused to kiss back. I didn't love Savannah. I loved Mia!

I watched in horror as Mia fled out the door, crying and screaming about how she wasn't good enough for me.

Right after Mia left, Savannah pulled off of me.

"Feel better, Hun?" She asked. I could tell she was pleased with herself.

"Fuck you." I mumbled under my breath, as I let a tear slide down my cheek.

"Luke, you did this to yourself. If you had just asked me out in the first place, this wouldn't have even been an issue. It was clear as day that you liked me and not her, so I don't even know why you asked her out in the first place. To be quite honest, I did you a favor. Now you can be with me." She grinned.


Savannah just looked at me with a blank and slightly hurt expression. "Luke, I'm so sor-"

I cut her off. "GO." I said motioning towards the door. She quickly scrambled out of the house, a bit shaken up.

As soon as the door shut, I collapsed on the ground in a crying fit. I had lost her, again. 

And this time it was probably for once and for all.
