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?


10. Conor!

Skylar’s POV

I was in Luke’s arms rocking back and forth when I looked over his shoulder and saw Claire and Mikey…KISSING! A huge smile began to spread across my face.

“What up?” Luke asked seeing the smile on my face. I just chuckled and pointed over his shoulder and he turned around to see Claire and Mikey. He let out a small whistle and got Ash and Cal to look at us. Luke then cocked his head towards Mikey and Claire. Ash and Cal saw them just before they pulled away and saw us looking and turned bright red.

“Finally got a kiss from Claire eh?” I walked to Mikey and gave him a wink and mouthed nice job at Claire.

“Okay if you’re all done obsessing about them kissing, I think we should all get our ladies back seeing as they’ve been walking in heels all night and it’s getting pretty late,” Ashton said looking at his watch. We all nodded and followed him out of the club; all of our hands interlocked.

Finally, back at the hostel, I looked in the lounge to see Tim but no one else. He was on the couch with his head and his heads and looked upset. I told Luke I’d be right back. I walked over to Tim and when he noticed me he shot out of his chair.

“Sky you’re back!”

“Yeah, Tim what’s wrong?”

“It’s Conor.”

“What about him?” I asked suddenly nervous.

“He’s missing.”

“WHAT?” I screamed getting everyone’s attention and Luke started towards me slowly with a confused expression.

“Everyone is out looking for him and told me to stay here and wait for you guys to get back, but no luck finding him so far,” Tim said tears streaming down his face. Luke was about to reach me but I turned and bolted out of the hostel not even caring I was in heels. I could hear Luke calling my name but didn’t stop. How could Conor go missing? I had to find him I just had to.


Luke’s POV

“Skylar!” I yelled as she bolted out of the hostel. I turned back to Tim.

“Uh hi?” Tim said looking nervous and like I was about to hit him.

“Why are you acting so scared?”

“Because you probably think I made Skylar cry, and are going to pound my face in.”

“Well, did you?” I asked searching his face.

“Uh…well” Tim looked like his was terrified of me, and I just sighed.

“Tell me what happened, I’m not going to hurt you.”

“Well Conor is kind of missing and I think Skylar is really worried so when I told her she basically sprinted out of here to go look for him. I’m worried too and being here alone doesn’t help.”

“Okay, the girls can stay here with you and the rest of us will find Conor.” I smiled patting his back then I walked back to everyone else and told the girls to stay with Tim and the guys come with me. Mary, Emily, and Claire walked over to Tim to comfort him while the guys followed me and we all walked out of the hostel.


Conor’s POV

I was propped up against a wall in an alley covered in blood and most likely had a few broken bones. On the way back to the hostel I heard some guys talking about Skylar and saying they were going to get her drunk and sleep with her. I wasn’t going to let that happen to my best friend. Skylar is the most important person in the world to me, and I promised her a long time ago that I would always be there for her. I promised I would protect her and I wasn’t about to break that promise. I told them to back off of Sky. I would hunt them down and kill them if they put a single finger on her. I stood up for her and got beat up for it.

Man, I don’t want Skylar to see me this way. This would break her heart into a million pieces. To see me so broken and unable to even stand would just kill her. I just prayed someone would find me. Then someone did, but it was the one person I was hoping wouldn’t.

“OH MY GOD!!!!” I heard her voice and looked up to see her running up to me. Skylar Rose Porter, my best friend. This is the worst time to see her face. She looks more broken than me. “Conor, what happened to you?” she looked at the blood all over my face. I tried to speak but was too weak to even try. “Just sit tight.” Sky whipped out her phone and called Cal telling him where we were then called an ambulance and I felt her warm arms carefully hold onto me. She was so warm and made me feel safe. I gave into her warmth and heard sirens and her voice begging me to stay with her, and then everything went black.


Calum’s POV

I was running down the street when my phone suddenly started to ring showing Sky’s name on the screen. I answered and she told me where she was and that Conor needed an ambulance. I stopped the other guys. “Mates I just got a call from Skylar, she found Conor but he’s banged up pretty bad.”

“Where is she?” Luke turned to me.

“An alley by the restaurant we ate at but she told us to just get to the hospital, she called for help so she wants us to meet her there,” I answered and flagged down a cab.


Skylar’s POV

I couldn’t stop crying. Conor was lying lifeless in a hospital bed. He passed out in my arms in the street while waiting for an ambulance; even though I kept talking to him he still passed out. I wanted him to wake up so badly; he is my best friend and I need him. I don’t know what made me feel I had to do this but I did. I leaned over and gave him a small peck on the lips. “Please Conor, please wake up!” I cried even more with my head on his sheets.

“Don’t worry he probably felt your kiss and is trying to open his eyes.” I turned to see Luke surprisingly smiling at me. I tried to fumble an apology but Luke just laughed. “It’s okay, don’t worry about it Sky.”

“You’re not mad I kissed him?” I asked confused and looked at the floor, afraid to meet Luke’s eyes.

“I trust Conor, and I get why you would kiss him. He is your best friend and you care about him. It makes me jealous to see you with other guys except for Conor. You have a different reason to kiss him. I know you really love him as a friend. Besides he’s been a good guy lately. Sure it took him a while to say my name, but he’s covered for us. I think getting a kiss from the prettiest girl ever is a great way to thank him. I can tell you can’t live without him. ” Luke just smiled and hugged me not caring about the blood on my dress.

“Well, I can’t live without you either, Luke,” I said as he let go. “You and Conor both mean so much to me. I’m just so scared, Conor knows me better than anyone, he can’t die.” Luke sat down next to me, and I sobbed into his shirt.

“Don’t worry Sky. He just heard you and knows you care about him. He’s staying with you Sky.”

“How do you know?”

“Because I would never leave you Sky.” I heard Conor’s voice and saw his dark blue eyes light up with an amazing glow and sparkle as he smiled back at me.


Conor’s POV

“Well, I can’t live without you either, Luke.” Sky’s voice said. “You and Conor both mean so much to me. I’m just so scared, Conor knows me better than anyone, he can’t die.” I could hear her sobbing. I opened my eyes to see her crying into Luke’s shirt. Luke looked up and noticed I was awake, a smile spread across his face.

“Don’t worry Sky. He just heard you and knows you care about him. He’s staying with you Sky.” Luke said looking at me. I smiled at him and focused back on Skylar.

“How do you know?”

“Because I would never leave you Sky.” I smiled at Sky and she looked at my face shocked beyond belief.

“CONOR!” She screamed happily hugged me instantly and much to my surprise kissed me. It was only for a second but felt great, but I was too shocked to really notice. I blinked at her confused then looked at Luke expecting him to be boiling mad. Instead, he gave me a genuine smile then bowed and left the room.

“Is there a reason Luke didn’t just kill me?” I looked at Skylar.

“He knows how much you mean to me, and the kiss was kind of his idea. He’s not mad about it. He’s okay with the fact I kissed you. For some reason it bugs him with all guys but you. You’re my best friend Conor, and I need you in my life, Luke knows that.” Sky said tearing up.

“Don’t worry Sky, I’ll never leave you.” I smiled and hugged her.

“How are you feeling?”

“Ah, I’m pretty banged up, but to be honest that kiss actually made me feel better.” I smiled and Skylar laughed. The doctor came in to take a look at me. Apparently, I only had a broken rib and a few bruises. I had to stay for a few days but then I would be free to go. Sky stayed for another hour before a nurse came in and said visiting hours were over. Skylar stood up to leave when I grabbed her arm. She smiled and kissed my cheek. I looked at her and pretend pouted.

“You have to remember I’m dating Luke. Besides, we friend-zoned each other a long time ago.” I burst out laughing so hard it made my rib hurt.

“I know Sky, I was joking.” She smiled gave me one last hug and left the room, I looked out the window for a bit before I drifted off to sleep.
