29. 27.

Chapter 27...

I woke up, feeling particularly shitty. Luke probably is too with his burns.

I slid open my privacy curtain and went into the game room.

I opened the door and all the boys were laying on the couch and the floor, passed out.

I walked over to Ashton first because he was closest to me.

"Ashton....?" I whispered.

He didn't stir, or anything.

"Ashton?" I whispered louder, I touched his arm gently.

He slowly mumbled something.

"Ash why are you all sleeping in here?" I whispered.

"We crashed after practicing..." He mumbled.

"Okay. Were you up late? Should I let you guys sleep?" I asked.

He nodded.

"Okay good night sorry." I whispered.

"Mhmm." He mumbled before turning his head over.

I walked over to Luke and looked at his burns, the ones on his wrist looked bad, they were blistered and very red and almost crusty looking.

I decided that I would wait for him to wake up before I put anything on them.

I walked out of the room and went back to my bunk. I hopped into my bunk and grabbed my phone.

I dialled my sisters number.

It rang five times before her voice came over the phone.

"Hey its Hayley! I'm probably ignoring you. Leave a message if you want!"

"Hey Hayley.... Please call me back, I'm getting really worried. If you don't want to call me because you're mad at me or whatever then call one of the boys, I'll text you their numbers, please call one of us... Please." I said as I hung up the phone.

I opened up my messages and texted her all of the boys's numbers.

I threw my phone at the padded wall.

I hopped off my bed and went to the kitchen area.

I went into the cupboard and grabbed the cereal, I then grabbed a bowl. I put some cereal into the bowl and put the box of cereal away. I left it dry and made my way to the game room again. I stopped off at the bathroom and grabbed the first aid kit and then I headed off on my way.

I carefully went into the game room and quietly shut the door behind me.

"Hey." Someone said, making me jump.

I turned around to see Luke up.

"I thought you were still asleep." I said walking over.

"I was." He shrugged.

He had the couch to himself, he sat up and let me sit.

"Let me see your arm." I said as I reached for it.

I pulled his hand onto my lap and let it rest on my thigh. Each of the burns looked somewhat significant and bad. I felt bad for him.

"Do they hurt more then yesterday?" I asked in a whisper.

He nodded.

"I'm sorry..." I said to him. "You can have some of my cereal while I do this if you want it..."

He immediately reached his free hand into my bowl and grabbed some. I took the bandage off his hand, then I opened up the first aid kit. I applied the same things as I did yesterday, the only difference was I added polysporin and left the burn on his hand bare, while I covered the rest.

"All done." I somewhat smiled.

If I had of just made the damn food he wouldn't be burned.

"Thanks." He mumbled, as he was still half asleep.

He tried to get me to lay down beside him but I pushed myself away. "I can't, Luke." I said sternly.

He pouted at me.

Honestly laying with him would make me feel better, more happy, but I just don't know how he feels. I know that I like Luke. I just don't want to be let down and broken. Why would he want to deal with all my shit anyway?

"Please." He argued. "Pleeeease."


"Because you'll make my hand better." He said.

"I'm the one who caused that to happen." I said, looking awkwardly at my hands.

"No you didn't Scarlet. Look, I know that we are living on this bus together for a year an a bit maybe even more... But I like you. I have no clue how you feel about me. But I- I felt like you should know." He looked me dead in the eyes.

I felt tears rush to my face, I stood up and jogged to my bunk.

I not-so-gracefully got onto my bunk and pulled the privacy curtain across.

"No.... No. This isn't..." I mumbled into my hands, as crocodile tears ran down my cheeks.

It wouldn't be fair to him. He would be with me in the worst times, and thats not fair to him.

What even is there to like about me anyway. I'm damaged goods. More like really damaged bad-s. I'm not pretty, or thin, or happy even. I haven't been eating properly the whole time I've been on the bus, and I'm fucking suicidal. Why does he like that.

Since I've got on the bus I've lost about 12 pounds from not eating right, like not eating enough. Him telling me he liked me brought all the reasons I don't like me, back.

I sat up against the wall of my bunk and curled my knees up to my chest, quietly sobbing into my hands.

I reached into my pillow case and grabbed what I needed most. The piece of metal that was my 'security blanket.'


I look at my bloodied arm and cry more. Gruesome marks were up and down both sides of my arm. By gruesome I mean deep and large and bloody.

I pulled at my sweater sleeve and slid my self into a ball in a laying-position.

I cried myself to sleep.


I woke up with a large pain in my arm, remembering what I did earlier. I looked up and saw a small not on the side of my bunk, I picked it up and instantly recognized Ashton's writing.

Hey... Hope you slept okay. We are going for a signing then Michael Calum and I are going for an interview while Luke goes back to the bus. He seems a little out of it... Do you know what's up? Maybe you guys could like watch a movie or something to cheer him up? I don't know...

Love yah, Ashton.

I groaned. I hoped down from my bunk, then pulled at the bottom of my sweatshirt sleeves to make sure they covered my dirty deed.

I walked into the kitchen and it showed the time as 6 pm. I quickly made myself a coffee, then made my way into the game room, to hopefully play a video game or something.

I made my way through the bunks and opened the door.

My eyes widened at the sight.

Luke was laying on the couch, belly down, not sleeping but moping.

I walked by and took a seat on the floor in front of the couch, leaning my back against it.

"Luke? You okay?" I asked quietly.

He didn't say anything.

"I uh- you telling me you liked me yesterday really freaked me out. Because it made me think what even is there to love about me. And its not fair to you because you would have to be with me on my worst days, and why would you want to deal with that... Sorry for rambling. But it mostly freaked me out because... I like you too and no one has ever liked me like that before and- I just- fuck." I mumbled out quickly.

He rolled over and looked at me, with concern. "Thats the thing, I want to be with you on your worst days and mine. And there is so fucking much to like about you, scar, you don't even know."

I looked into my hands and played with the ends of my sweater.

"I doubt that..." I mumbled quietly.

If he heard it he ignored me.

"Maybe... Maybe we could try and be together? Maybe you could be my girlfriend?" He asked nervously.

"I- what if I screw something up between us and we brake up then?" I ask.

"Well, we work it out and stay best friends." He said nervously.

"Okay- yeah I will." I said, glancing up at him.

He gave me a huge smile.

I gave him a small smile back and climbed up onto the couch and sat there awkwardly.

Luke carefully reached over and grabbed my left arm and guided me to sit closer to him.

"Can we watch a movie?" I asked.

"Yeah sure, what movie?"

"I don't know..." I said as I stood up.

I walked over to the television and grabbed the laptop along with its charger.

"Come on." I said as I walked out of the hame room into the bunks.

I heard Luke's footsteps close behind when I reached the bunks.

"Grab some of your blankets would you?" I asked.

I climbed my way up the bunks and hopped into mine. It took me a couple minutes but I got there.

I started to plug in the laptop when blankets started making their way into my bunk along with a few pillows. Then Luke magically appeared in my bunk.

I started to search for movies on Netflix while Luke pulled all the blankets and pillows to the one side of the bed.

"Is Shutter Island okay?" I ask.

"Yeah! I've been wanting to see it for a while actually." He says with a slight smile, making his dimple show.

My stomach got butterflies.

I scooted over to Luke and got under the one blanket available, as the rest were behind us. I sat close to Luke, our thighs touching, giving me goosebumps.

Luke wrapped an arm around me and placed his free hand on my leg.

I pressed play on the movie and smiled to Luke.

"Wait... Do you wanna close the curtain over?" I giggled lightly.

"Yeah, maybe." He joked.

I giggled again as he close it.

"Okay now we can start." I said.

I placed my hand on top of his as the first few, I gently leaned my head on his shoulder and watched the movie.
