Love Halfway Around The World

Skylar and her friends went to Australia to have the adventure of a lifetime, but not romance. However when Skylar accidentally crashes into Luke Hemmings in the streets of Central Sydney that changes. What happens when Luke gets feelings for Skylar and what about when Micheal, Calum, and Ashton all catch feelings for three of Skylar's friends?


6. Blue Mountains And Jealous Friends

Skylar’s POV

After about 5 hours of driving, we got to another hostel in a place called the Blue Mountains. We all got out of the van and went to the trailer. I was about the grab my stuff when someone grabbed my arm from behind yanked me back around the side of the building and pushed against the wall. When I looked up I was met with Luke’s blue eyes but they weren’t the same as before, I could see anger and jealousy in them. “Are you trying to make me mad?” he growled at me.

“W-w-what are y-you talking about?” I stuttered in fear.

“Don’t fuck with me Sky. Getting all close and cute with Ryan, you like him don’t you!” Luke grabbed my wrists and pinned them to the wall. I was so afraid I couldn’t move or even look at him.

“Luke you’re wrong I don’t like Ryan I told you I liked you.”

“Liked?” he asked suddenly confused.

“Right now I’m not so sure, you’re hurting me and honestly I’m scared to death,” I replied shaking uncontrollably. Luke’s eyes slowly turned from being full and anger into full of sadness and he let go of my wrists.

“Skylar I-” Luke was cut off when Jono came out of nowhere grabbed Luke’s neck and threw him back.

“Dude I don’t know what’s up with you but I want you to leave Skylar alone, can’t you see you’re scaring her? Do you even care about her?” Jono was glaring at Luke and was furious.

“Jono calm down,” I begged him trying to keep him from attacking and possibly killing Luke.

“NO Skylar I won’t calm down, this guy isn’t right for you. He is just another guy who is throwing himself at you, that’s all; he doesn’t know you and doesn’t care. He just had you pinned to the wall like Kalob did last night, and he’s not even drunk.” I looked at Luke, his eyes widened and he looked at his hands in horror and broke down crying.

“I’m sorry Skylar, I’m so sorry.” Luke sobbed. I tried to walk towards him but Jono picked me up and carried me into the hostel before I could protest. He got my room and shoved me inside, leaving Luke outside crying.


Luke’s POV

When Jono yelled that I was being just like Kalob I realized what a monster I had turned into. He was right; I was acting just like Kalob. I had just grabbed Skylar’s arm, yanked her behind a building, pushed her up against the wall, and accused her of something so stupid. How could I think she was cheating when we aren’t even dating, she was probably enjoying talking to Ryan because he was a friend and I had to push her into a wall like a criminal. I looked at my hands in complete horror of what I had just done. I turned into a monster and hurt the only girl in the world that I care for. Skylar is the only girl that I have ever cared for, the only the girl that I have ever loved, and the only girl in my life. She was the only girl that I want in my life, I don’t want anybody else, and I won’t love anyone else but her. I want her so bad but she will never trust me again.


I had been on the ground for sometime before I hear Cal’s voice.

“Luke, you okay mate? Jono stormed in with Skylar, looking like she was about to cry, and nobody knows why. I thought you might have a clue.”

“I-I hurt her Cal. I pushed her into the wall, and accused her of something as stupid as cheating. I’m an idiot and she will never love me.” I sobbed.

“Mate, that’s not true, Skylar loves you.” Cal sat next to me and leaned against the wall.

“No, she doesn’t. I scared her away. I hurt her and she hates me. She will live her life now with Conor or Ryan and be all happy. I love her so damn much but she doesn’t feel the same, and she will live her life without me. I will live my life alone, regretting every single second that I let the only girl I could ever love slip away.” I cried out everything in my body and buried my face in my knees.

“Luke man, I know she wants you. She might not be in love with you, but she is starting to fall for you. Trust me.”

“How do you know that?” I cried not lifting my head so my words were muffled.

“I talked to Conor about it thinking he might know why she was sad, and he said that she might not be in love with you yet, but she is already starting to fall in love with you, and fast, she’ll be in love with you before you know it.” Cal patted my back then stood up. “She wants you and she cares about you, so don’t give up on her yet. You got to fight for her, and if you really love her like you say you do, then fight for her. I know you love her man, show her that and I bet she’ll realize she wants to be with you” Cal said then turned and walked back into the building. I love Skylar and I can’t let her go, but I don’t know how to get her back.


Skylar’s POV

I couldn’t sleep at all that night. I got out of bed and went downstairs to the lounge to think. Why did Jono drag me away? Why did Luke attack me? Why did I say I don’t love him? The truth is I am falling for him, and I have to make sure he knows. Just then I heard muffled whimpers and ran to the window, LUKE! Luke was still outside on the ground weeping. I ran outside and towards him. “NO Sky! Don’t come near me. I don’t want to hurt you.” I walked up and knelt beside him.

“Luke you won’t do that.”

“I just did Skylar, I just hurt you. I hurt the girl I love. I don’t deserve you I don’t deserve –“ I cut Luke off by kissing him. He froze at first then cradled my head and moving his lips in sync with mine. I could feel his lip ring on my bottom lip and I loved it. I loved the way the cold metal tickling my skin with how soft Luke’s lips were. Kissing him gave me the most amazing feeling and I didn’t want to lose it.

“I love you Luke I love you so much and I want to be your girlfriend. Will you be my boyfriend?” I fist my hands in his hair and stare into his blue eyes.

“You took my line Sky, I was supposed to ask you to be my girlfriend.” Luke slightly smiled.

“Well then, yes Luke I will be your girlfriend.” I kissed him deeply and passionately. I really love him he is everything to me.


Jono’s POV

Damn that Skylar! Why does she have to be that way? I care about her so much and she still goes after some stupid Aussie kid. I have loved her since I moved to New York 8 years ago. I had to try for 2 years to get her to be a friend and have been there for 6 years because I freaking love her. What is so great about that Blonde hair, blue-eyed angel? Fantastic, I just answered my own question. “Hey man I know how you feel, but this is your fault for not telling Skylar how you feel about her. You’ve had those feelings for the past 8 years and didn’t tell her. Now you lost her to Barbie boy” Conor suddenly appeared behind me.

“You mean Ryan?” I asked confused.

“No man, the other Barbie boy, Luke. Ryan is Ken doll. You never told Skylar you liked her and now you lost her.”

“I wasn’t thinking about Skylar.” I flushed snapping at him, and he just laughed.

“Dude… you’re staring at her picture.” I quickly put my phone away.

“Doesn’t matter anyway. She loves that perfect looking moron Luke.”

“Then she doesn’t deserve you man. I know you think she’s the hottest girl you’ve seen and has a great personality but come on we’re in Australia, you can find a chick hotter than Skylar, so buck up man.” I gave Conor a fake smile, but I had a feeling deep down I wouldn’t find another girl.

“I really hope you’re right Conor.”

“Look Jono, I’ve known Skylar my whole life, and it’s kind of pointless to chase after her. She doesn’t exactly fall in love. I know her and have never seen her fall for a guy or even get a crush. You’ll find a girl. One that is better for you than Skylar.” He smiled and patted my back. “Skylar is a great girl, but I know it is so much better to have her as a friend than a girlfriend. She cares about you Jono; she would be crushed to lose you as a friend. If you got in a relationship with her and it ended badly, that would kill Skylar, losing your friendship because of a relationship. Your friendship with her is not worth risking for a romantic relationship.” Conor smiled. “It’s too important to her.”

“Are you sure she doesn’t fall, she seems like she’s fallen for Barbie boy.”

“That does confuse me, but look, man, I would give up on Sky before you fall too hard and get your heart broken. She’s not the girl for you.”

For me there was no other girl, Skylar was the only one, I just wish I could make her mine. I’m in love with that girl.
