Falling in Love with the Not So Bad Boy

Lilly has had a crush on Luke, the bad boy, for forever. That all changes after a detention they had together. They overcome some hard times of each other's lives using their love and trust. After some time Lilly notices that Luke isn't as much as a bad boy that she thought he was, although her mother disagrees.


21. I'm Sorry But...

Chapter 20// I'm Sorry But...

I rolled over slowly and slammed my alarm clock which I set an alarm for 5:30 a.m. I rubbed my eyes as I got out of bed and grabbed some clothes. I picked out a comfy blue hoodie, leggings, and vans. I got into my clothes and went into the bathroom. I brushed my teeth and hair and went downstairs.

"Why are you up so early?" My mom asked. "You normally don't get up until 6."

"Oh yeah, I forgot to tell you. I'm taking off of school for today so I can drive the boys to the airport." I yawned.

"You could have told me earlier Lilly." My mom sighed.

"Sorry.." I said as I gave a small frown.

"It's fine Lilly. Just use the old car, there will be more space."

"OK. Thanks." I smiled. Finally my mom and I were getting along. 

I walked into the kitchen and started up the coffee machine. I grabbed an on-the-go mug from the cabinet and set it under the coffee maker. After a few minutes of continuous yawning, the coffee is finally done. I snap on the lid, grab my phone and take the keys to the old van off the table. I smile as I take a quick sip of my coffee and head out the door.

"Bye mom." I shout quickly as the front door swings shut.

I get into my car, put down my cup in the cup holder, and set my phone to the side. I buckle my seat belt and back out to go to Calum's house.

Once I arrive, I honk the horn and all the boys come stumbling out of the house. I laughed at how they all looked so sleepy and clumsy. I hopped out of the car and unlocked the trunk. I opened it up and watched as the guys all put their bags in the back. They didn't have a lot of luggage so luckily it was easy. A tired Calum went to go shut the trunk but somehow ended up hitting the back of his head.

"Watch out Calum." I chuckled as I moved him to the side and closed the trunk. Calum, Ashton, and Michael filed into the car as Luke gave me a big morning hug. His hugs were always very warm.. I don't know why. I hugged him back as he pulled me closer into a kiss. We both jumped a little when we heard a knock on the back window.... It was Calum and Michael. Including Ashton, they all giggled like little school girls. I looked up at Luke and smiled. 

"We better get going." He whispered. I nodded in agreement. We got into the car, and off we were to the airport.

"Hey Lilly, how are you so awake?" asked Michael as he yawned.

"Coffee." I just laughed as I continued to drive.

The car ride was actually a little quiet... that was only for about a half hour though. When Luke turned up the music a little, the guys went full on crazy. They were playing air guitar/drums and were singing. Luke was actually calm. I did catch him singing every now and then.

After a long two hour drive, we arrive in the parking lot of the airport. For some reason it takes the guys a long time to get all of their stuff together. Ashton got all of his stuff out and waited by the car.

"Bye Ashton." I said as I hugged him. Once Calum finished, he ran up to me and gave me a hug.

"Bye Lilly, we'll miss you such much." said Calum with a fake frown on his face. He kept me in a hug for an oddly long amount of time again.... I finally laughed and let go as I went to hug Michael. Michael just seemed so annoyed with this but it was pretty funny looking at how sleepy he still was. When Luke finished grabbing his stuff, I jumped up and wrapped my arms and legs around Luke. He smiled and hugged me back so tightly as he held a grip on my thighs, keeping me up from falling.

"I'll really miss you." Luke whispered.

"Me too." I said resting my head on his shoulder for a quick second.

"I love you." He smiled.

"I love you too." I smiled back as we both pressed our lips together for a kiss.

Luke carefully put me back on the ground and he grabbed his stuff. We all waved goodbye to each other as they all walked into the airport. It was so cute seeing Luke walking away with a suit case and a giant stuffed penguin. I laughed as I got into the car and drove away once they were out of sight.

With all the traffic it took me just 2 hours to get about half way home. My stomach started to rumble so I stopped at one of the local diners. I followed the waitress to a small booth where I sat by myself. I looked up at the clock to see that it was already 8:10 a.m. I read the menu and decided what to eat. Right after the waitress took my order my phone started to buzz.

"We're boarding the plane right now.... I miss you already." said a text I read from Luke.

"I miss you too." I texted back. I set my phone to the side as the waitress placed my plate right in front of me. I smiled up at her and started to eat. I took my time to think and well, have a little me time. About an hour later of eating and watching the news on the television mounted on the wall, I left the diner. To take more me time, I stop by a strip mall a little further down the road. I take about 2 hours to look through the shops. I enjoy shopping but only every now and then. I like to treat myself to a few things sometimes. After 2 hours of shopping, I take a half hour just to look in Barnes & Noble. Book stores are awesome... I love reading.

I open the trunk and place the bags in the back. I hop into the car and look at my phone before setting it aside. I realized it was already 11:40. I get back onto the road and it still is a little busy. It takes another two hours until I fully get going on the road. All this construction going on makes everything a mess. I stop at a red light just as my phone lights up.

"Hey, Lilly, we just got off our flight :) We're headed to the hotel." Luke texted me.

"Good thing to know Luke :)" I replied quickly. 

I looked back up to see the light has just changed. I make my left turn and continue driving on. Luckily, I was only a half hour away from home and the road was clear. I slowed down as I came up to a green light and went to turn. I looked both ways and before I knew it a flatbed truck rammed right into the left side of my car. 

All I heard was a big screech from the car and shattering glass. Before I knew it, glass and blood were surrounding me and my vision slowly blurred.

Calum's P.O.V.

Just as Luke stepped into the shower his phone starting ringing. I picked up his phone off of the coffee table and read that an incoming call was coming from Lilly. I thought it could have been personal, but I picked it up anyway.

"Hello?" I answered.

"Um, Hello. This is Mary, Lilly's mom. Is this Luke?"

"Sorry no, it's his bud Calum. He's in the shower right now. What's wrong?"

"Can you just tell him to call Lilly's number back when he gets out?"

"Um.. yeah sure thing." I replied. Lilly's mom ended the call. I raised an eyebrow and stared at the phone.

"What the hell was that?" asked Michael as he got up to get a drink from the refrigerator.

"I... I don't know." I said carefully placing the phone on the table as if it was a bomb. Ashton just stared at me as I sat back down on the couch.

Luke's P.O.V.

"Where the hell is my shirt?!" I shouted as I came out of the bathroom messing with my hair.

"What shirt?" Ashton asked. I just sighed and went around in circles trying to kind it.

"Luke... I think we have a bigger problem than a missing shirt..." Calum said glancing at my phone. He explained what happened and soon enough my heart was pounding as I went to pick up the phone.

"Hello, this is Mary, is this Luke?"

"Yes, Hi."

"Well, Luke. I'm sorry to tell you but..." she sighed. "Lilly got in a car accident on her way home."

"Shit!" I exclamied. "...sorry." I added. The guys all stared at me as I took a seat in one of the high top chairs.

"She was about 20 minutes away from home when a flatbed truck jammed into her."

"Is she ok?" I asked as my hands started getting sweaty and my body started to fill with sadness and anger.

"um... well she was bleeding and there was glass... and well, she's in a coma right now." her mom said sniffling her nose.

"wow..." I whispered.

"The doctors are coming in to talk with us now. I'll keep you updated." 

"Thanks." I said as the phone call ended.

I put my phone down on the table and looked out of the window as tears slowly rolled down my face. I pushed my chair back and paced around the room.

"Luke, are you ok?" Calum asked furrowing his eyebrows. I stood with my forehead against a wall and my fist holding me up.

"Fuck!" I shouted as I slammed the wall with my fist and tears started to come down even harder. The guys all got up and crowded around me. I sighed and took deep breaths to try and calm myself down. I stayed facing the wall because I didn't want them to see me this way. I explained what happened and they all seemed a little upset.

"We'll we're here if you need someone to talk to." Ashton said putting on a fake smile.

"Thanks but i'm gonna take some time by myself." I sighed as I headed into the room I was staying in. Tears just rolled down my face even more as I looked at the matching penguin Lilly and I got. I took it into my arms and rested my head on it as I stared at a blank wall and thought to myself. God I hope Lilly is ok.... I can't live without her. We barely had enough time together.... hell, it's only been a little over a week. Within minutes I fell asleep.

About two hours later I wake up to see Ashton standing in the doorway.

"We have an hour til the small gig we got tonight." Ashton said. I rubbed my eyes and slowly opened them to be blinded by the light. I grunted as I got up and stared at the clock. It was only 2:30 p.m. I realized that there was a 2 hour time difference and that's why it felt so much later. I left the room and went to the bathroom. I brushed my teeth and fixed up my hair.

"Has anyone seen my shirt?" I asked again as I switched off the bathroom light.

"What shirt, Luke? You have a ton." Michael laughed.

"My 'You Complete Mess' shirt." I sighed.

"Luke, you're going crazy. None of us took your shirt, it's probably in your room." Calum said looking at me as if I really have gone crazy. And to be totally honest, I probably am going crazy. I can't get Lilly off of my mind and I won't stop thinking about her until I find out that she is ok.

I walk back into my room and sure enough after a few minutes of looking around I find my shirt. I shake my head thinking about the mess I am right now. I put on my shirt and sit on my bed to put on my socks and shoes. I walk out into the living room and wait for the other guys to finish.

At around 7 p.m. we finish our show and get into the car to drive back to the hotel.

"Great show guys." Ashton smiled as he hopped into the back seat.

"Yeah... Luke are you ok though?" Calum asked.

"What? Yeah.. I'm ok." I said shortly.

"Well, ya sure? You were sort of crying when we played Amnesia and Beside You." Michael said.

"No, what? I was?" I said trying to play it cool.

"Luke, it's ok. We know you're worried about Lilly. She'll be fine." Ashton said trying to assure me. I just sighed and stared out the window the rest of the ride home.

Once we got home I looked at my phone to see no text messages from Lilly's mom so that probably means she isn't a wake yet. I sat on the edge of my bed and thought for a little. My doors bursts open as Calum comes in.

"Hey, wanna watch a movie with us?" Calum smiled.

"Sure." I said getting up from the bed.

"Put the phone down..." Calum said tilting his head towards the phone.

"But what if her mom-"

"Luke, just put it down, you need to get your mind off of Lilly for a little bit." 

"But I can't." I said throwing my phone onto my bed. 

"Yes. You can." said Calum leaving the room. I got up from the bed and went into the living room and we watched a movie. I did not even notice what movie they picked because I really could not stop thinking about Lilly. I really really hope she is ok.

2 hours later the movie ends and we all go to bed... At least try to. For about half an hour I toss and turn. Maybe texting her will make me feel better? I carefully unplug my phone from the charger and turn down the brightness. I'm sharing a room with all the other guys since there was only one room. I mute my phone and start texting her as if she would answer.





"Luke turn it off." Calum said in his sleepy voice which was muffled by a pillow. I sighed and looked down at my phone. Maybe Calum was right, I was going crazy earlier today and I still am. I looked at my clock and it said 11:30p.m. There is a 2 hour time difference so it's 1:30 over where Lilly is. God, I really need sleep. I turn off my phone and try to sleep. Of course it takes awhile with all these thoughts running through my head but eventually I do fall asleep.

So on the app, the pictures come up weird. It shows the 2 texts and then the last paragraph and then the last text picture so just know that the order of the pictures is correct just the last picture shows up after the paragraph when it should show up before so yeah... I don't know why that happens but oh well.
