10. Chapter Ten

Luke's POV

"Goodbye, Miles" I whispered to her right before closing the door.

As soon as I heard the 'click' that signaled the door was shut, I sighed, not really paying attention to the fact that Alexis was right behind me.

"Well, well, well..." She said crossing her arms while tapping her foot and smirking.

I looked up. I had forgotten she was still here.

"What?" I asked, trying to get around her.

Alexis stuck her arm out, pushing me back into my original spot. "Woah, I'm not done with you, lover boy!" She said in a taunting voice.

"What are you talking about?" I said as if I didn't know what she was getting at.

She grinned. "Oh, don't you play dumb with me! It's as clear as day that you have a huge crush on Mia! I bet you the only one of us that hasn't noticed..." She said while gesturing towards the rest of the guys. "...Is Mia herself!"

I could feel my face heat up. Was it really that obvious?

Alexis continued, "I see the way you look at her. You're crazy about my best friend!! You're deeply in love with her! Just admit it!"

She started at me for what felt like forever. I finally nodded, very slowly.

"Good. Admitting to it is step one." She said jokingly.

Then she turned more serious, and she lowered her voice to a volume only I could hear.

"I know your other secret. I always had a hunch but I finally was able to confirm it tonight, after what you said to her right before she left."

I was confused. I hadn't said anything weird to her.

"What might that be?" I asked, clearly showing I was lost as to where she was going.

"You called her Miles."

"So??" I still didn't get it.

"So..if you had really forgotten who she was when you got hit by that car, you would have never remembered her nickname was Miles, or that yours was Lucy."

Oh my god. I had called her Miles. What was Mia going to think?

"I always thought it was weird that you had forgotten your best friend, but somehow managed to remember me." She continued. "It all makes sense now. Well, it mostly makes sense....The only thing I don't get is why you pretended to forget her. I mean, she was your best friend for crying out loud! That crushed her! Do you know how much of a wreck she was after the incident? She could barely even muster up the strength to go to school! You were her everything, and you left her!" 

Alexis kept ranting on about how awful I had been to Mia. The worst part was, I completely agreed with her about how much of a douche I had been, even though I didn't even mean to be.

I couldn't help but burst into tears.

"Oh, Luke! I'm so sorry! It's just..." I cut her off.

"No. You're right! I've been a complete jerk! If I could take back anything I have ever done in my life, it would be that!" Then I collapsed onto the floor with tears pouring down my face. I proceeded to tell Alexis why I had pretended to forget her.

"I thought we could just go back to being friends!" I finished off. "I was too embarrassed to let Mia know I actually had feelings for her! I used the car accident to my advantage, and I shouldn't have! I'm an idiot!"

With that, I stood up and punched my fist into the side of the wall, which caused a small hole to form.

"SHIT!" I yelled.

Alexis just looked at me with sorrow in her eyes. I could tell she felt bad for me.

"Luke, look, I..."

"Just leave!!" I screamed.

"Wait, Luke! Just listen to me for a second!" She stated quite sternly.

I took a deep breath and looked up at her. She stared right back down to me.

"The day that we saw you in the hospital, and you asked who Mia was, she told me something I think you should know. She told me that she had loved you and that she had wished she had gotten the chance to tell you when you loved her back. She told me about what you had said to her right before you got hit, and how she just stared back at you to see if it was a dream or not, because she said she never would have thought someone as great as you would like someone as average as her."

My mouth dropped open. I couldn't believe my ears.

"Really?" Was all I was able to say.

"Really." She responded. Then, as if telling me that wasn't enough to make me satisfied, she added something else that made my heart skip a beat.

"And I don't think she ever dropped those feelings of love for you."

With those words, she opened the door to let herself out, and that was the last I saw of Alexis that night.

She left me with so many questions running through my head.

Mia's POV

When I got in bed that night, I still had so many questions swirling through my head. How could he have remembered my nickname was Miles if he forgot who I even was?

I thought about it for a minute until it ht me. I gasped out loud.

He never had forgotten who I was in the first place. That was the only logical answer. The whole story made sense now.

That was why he had remembered Alexis, why the doctor was so confused, and obviously why he had known my nickname.

He remembers me...

It felt strange to think about. Now all my questions had been answered. It all added up.

Well, mostly.

I still don't know why he pretended not to know me, but I can't believe he even did. I can't believe he put me through so much pain. He really was a jerk.

However, as much as I wanted to hate him, a little voice in the back of my head kept telling me that he had done it for a reason.

And I am determined to find out what that reason is.

With that thought still fresh in my head, I drifted off into a deep sleep, not realizing that Luke was right outside of my room, on my balcony.

A/N:

Lol I hope this chapter isn't too cheesy.... Ik it's not the best chapter but I had to speed up the process of Luke learning that Mia likes him so I can get to more of the problems that need to be solved lol. I promise that I'll update soon! ILYSM! :)
