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?


5. The Night Before

Luke’s POV

“Hey Luke, are sure this is okay, chasing this girl up the east coast? I mean we just met her yesterday.”  Cal asked searching my face for an answer.

“It should be fine. I’ve never seen Luke so affected by a girl, she must really be something else.” Ash said with a puzzled look.

“Oh, she is something else. She’s pretty darn hot! If Luke didn’t get to her first I would have gone after her myself. ”Michael grinned at me.

“Well, now I have to make sure to keep you away from her. She will hopefully be my girlfriend pretty soon.” I grinned to myself and lay down on my bed.

“Relax man, I’m interested in the brown haired chick, so Skylar is all yours.”

I just chuckled at Mikey and stared at the ceiling and my head instantly filled with images of Skylar and wouldn’t stop.

“Mate you look like your head is about to explode.” Ash came into my field of vision. “You okay?” I got off my bed and walked towards the door.

“I’m going to Skylar’s room. I’ll be back later, okay.” I didn’t even wait for a reply; I walked out the door and down the hallway to Skylar’s door.

I casually walked all the way down the hall to Sky’s door. The hallway was quiet and empty; it made me feel a bit uneasy. I was just about to knock on her door when a voice spoke up. “You can’t seem to get enough of her can you?” I whipped around to see Drake standing there in just basketball shorts.

“Is there a reason you’re walking around without a shirt on?” I frowned and he just laughed.

“Relax pretty boy, what’s the problem?” Drake grinned at me.

“My name is Luke you know.”

“Whatever you say, pretty boy. Now if you’re looking for Skylar which I know you are, she’s not in there.” Drake said pointing at her door. “She’s downstairs with the rest of the girls.”

“Well then see you in the morning… and please put on a shirt.” I turned on my heel and walked down the stairs in search for Sky.


Skylar’s POV

“I swear he’s perfect.” Emily was glowing and blabbing on about Ashton. They pretty much clicked after Luke basically shoved Ashton into my face while Emily was hiding behind me.

“Did you really have to pull Sky and me down here just to gush about this guy that you’ve know for what, like 5 hours?” Claire groaned and put her head in her hands as I let out a chuckle and shook my head, looking down.

“YES! I have to tell some people how amazing Ashton is. Plus I know you are interested in Michael, Mary has a thing for Calum, and Sky is already Luke’s girlfriend.” I glared at Emily with an evil look, she glanced at me and I saw fear start to crawl across her face. “What, did I say something wrong?” she looked at me.

“I’m not Luke’s girlfriend Emily, I wish you would drop it. We aren’t dating,” I said sternly to her.

“Well, that hurts.” We all turned at the sound of Luke’s voice and I shot out of my chair. “Don’t worry, we will be dating soon.” Luke smiled at me. I blushed and looked away. Damn, how can he make blush so easy?

“You sure about that?” I smirked at him. “You really think you’re that good.”

“I hope so. I did get you to kiss me.” He said suddenly looking down and I flushed.

“Alright rock star, now go to bed or you won’t be cute when you wake up.” I smiled, his eyes widened and he bolted off to his room.

“Uh is he okay?” Mary looked off in the direction Luke went confused.

“He’s just under Sky’s spell, you know how well she can manipulate boys.” Claire smiled and looked at Mary.

“I’m not manipulating Luke.”

"I know, but you can make a lot of boys do anything, you know how they work." Claire smiled and looked like a light bulb went off in her head and turned to Emily and Mary. “That means she can work her magic for us.” I looked at her and cocked my head to one side.

“What the heck does that mean?”

“You know we all like the other boys so use your magic and help us get them head over heels for us like you did with Luke.” Claire was on her knees now pleading with me. I chuckled and smiled down at her.

“Alright I’ll help, but we better go get some sleep so we don’t look totally drained tomorrow.”


I was on my way up to my room when Kalob came out of nowhere pushed me against the wall, pinned my hands above my head and crushed his lips to mine.  His orange hair was wet from a shower and the water ran in my eyes as I tried to break away from his lips. I tried hard to escape but he wouldn’t budge at all and started to make the kisses rough, I could smell too much alcohol and I couldn’t breathe. He was defiantly drunk or he wouldn’t be doing this “Kalob get off me now! You’re drunk!” I screamed and struggled to get free.

“Stop fighting it. Come on just dump that stupid pretty boy. You know you want me instead of him.” Kalob grinned, his brown eyes glowing dangerously and he pressed his lips to mine before I could protest. I kept fighting against him then out of nowhere Kalob was thrown off my chest and down the hallway.


Luke’s POV

I was walking down the hall towards the bathroom when I looked up and saw that Kalob had Skylar pinned to the wall, kissing her, and I could tell by her face and the way she was squirming around he was forcing kisses on her. I felt anger boil inside me, and the next thing I knew I threw Kalob off her and sent him flying down the hall. I took Skylar in my arms and held her to my chest. She was sobbing into my shirt but I couldn’t care less. I just held her tight for a long time then walked her back to her room. On the way, it felt like she was just crying harder every second. My heart was shattered into pieces so small you would need a microscope to see them. I couldn’t stand to see her this way and I swear I will kill Kalob.

“Luke” she whimpered without lifting her head.

“Yeah?” I asked looking down at her.

“Please don’t leave me. I need you to protect me. That’s the third time Kalob has attacked me, I just want you to stay by my side, please. He’s been getting drunk a lot.” She was practically begging me.

“Skylar, I told you before and I’ll tell you again. I’m not going anywhere, you are the best thing that ever happened to me and I will not give up without a fight. I’m all yours Skylar, don’t forget it.” The words just kept coming out, seeing Skylar like that I couldn’t stop myself. I’m falling in love with her and I love the feeling.  


Ashton’s POV

“Ashton, guys come on you got to wake up!” I woke up to Emily’s voice on the other side of our door. Luke, Cal, and Mikey were all still dead asleep so I got out of bed and opened the door to fully dressed and annoyed Emily. “Really are you guys always so dead in the morning?” Emily asked with a frown.

“Only when a pretty girl is yelling at us like our moms,” I smirked and laughed.

“Was I really that bad?” Emily looked at the ground. I reached out and brushed my knuckles on her cheek and she looked up at me.

“Yes you were, but you’re a heck of a lot cuter than my mom.” I gave her a smile and saw Skylar wink at me in the background. I looked at her and gestured inside the room with my head. She nodded and came over to us.

“I’m guessing the other boys are still out?” she asked when she got to me.

“Maybe you can wake Luke with a kiss,” I smirked at her.

“Hold that thought” Sky whispered something in Emily’s ear and she smiled and they both walked back to their rooms and returned moments later with Claire and Mary. I smiled; I knew what they had planned. I just opened the door wider to let them in.

“Do as you wish.” I grabbed Emily’s wrist and stepped out with Emily to let Skylar, Mary, and Claire take care of the boys.


Michael’s POV

I felt something soft and warm on my lips. I didn’t know what it was but it made me happy. I wanted to open my eyes but its like they were sealed shut. Suddenly it stopped and my lips were cold.

“OW!” I yelled as something hit my stomach. I looked up and saw Claire straddling me.

“Good morning sunshine” She gave me a sweet smile with glossy eyes.

“Why can’t I be mad at her?” I said out loud without meaning to. I realized what I did and looked at Claire. She just smiled, kissed her middle and pointer finger, and patted my head with them.

“Well, Mikey you and the boys should get ready.” I snapped my head around to see Skylar leaning against the doorframe with Ash and Emily behind her and a smirk on her face.

“Then you might want to wake up Luke,” I said sitting up as soon as Claire got off.  Skylar just smirked at me then climbed up to Luke’s bunk to try and wake him.


Calum’s POV

“OW!” I heard Mikey scream and woke up but my eyes wouldn’t open till I felt someone plop down on my chest. I snapped my eyes open only to find Mary hovering over me.

“Well looks like you finally decided to wake up.” She got up from my bed and just stood there smiling and looking in my eyes.

“What time is it?” I yawned still not awake. The sun was shining outside and we were all up except for Luke. Skylar was up on his bunk trying to be gentle waking him. She must really not know Luke is dead in the morning.

“Let’s just say you boys should get ready, and Skylar stop being so sweet and wake up your Barbie boyfriend.” Claire laughed. Sky just shrugged and went back to shaking him and trying to get him up. Good luck with that Skylar, that won’t wake him up.


Emily’s POV

Ashton took me out in the hallway while the rest of the girls got to work on their boys. Ash looked a little nervous and I got a sad feeling in my heart.

“Look Emily. I think you should know how I feel” I looked up at Ashton and was frozen when he locked eyes with me. “I really like you a lot, and whenever I’m around you my heart speeds up, I can’t concentrate, and who knows how long it will be before I can’t stop myself and hurt you.”

“Ash” I put my hands on his shoulders. “I trust you and know you won’t hurt me. Skylar wouldn’t let you anywhere near me if she thought you were capable of hurting me. Please don’t worry so much.” I smiled and put my hand around Ashton’s neck and pulled his head toward me. Our lips connected and fireworks exploded inside me. Ash slipped his hands around my waist as I put mine around his neck and deepened the kiss while climbing on my toes to get some height because he was pretty tall and I was much shorter than Skylar and Claire.

“Alright, you two break it up. This is a hallway.” Michael was right outside their door dressed ready and his arm over Claire’s shoulders almost like she was supporting him. Calum followed holding Mary’s hand.  Finally Luke came out looking like he literally just rolled out of bed (he kind of did) with his arm wrapped around Skylar’s waist holding her. I gave Ashton one last peck on the cheek then ran back to my room to grab my stuff and head downstairs.


Luke’s POV

“Man you guys look awful this morning,” Tim said when we entered the common room.

“Well having a teenage girl jab you in the gut isn’t the best way to wake up.” Michael looked down at Claire. “You could have just kissed me awake like Sky did to Luke.”

“Wait… when did Skylar kiss me?” I asked Mikey and looked at Sky.

“I didn’t kiss him, just kept shaking him, and I had to yell ‘Lucas Robert Hemmings!’ at him before he got up.”

“I hate when people call me Lucas.” I groaned and glared at Sky. She just smiled at me then walked over to the couch leaned on the arm and started talking to Conor who was sitting down.

“Alright, dolls you all ready to go?” Kim appeared out of nowhere. Everybody simply nodded their heads, grabbed their bags, and went outside where a silver van with a blue trailer was waiting for them to get on. The boys and I all climbed into a black range rover. Calum got in the driver's seat; I was in the passenger while Ash was behind me and Mikey was behind Cal in the back. We waited for everyone else to load up, then gave Kim a thumbs up that we were ready. She smiled and nodded then pulled into Sydney traffic with us right behind her. We didn’t even get five miles I could see through the back window of the van they were having fun and acting like best friends. As we got on the highway we drove up in the lane next to them so we could see through the side windows. That’s when something caught my eye that bothered me. Ryan was sitting right next to Skylar and looked too close to her, and was whispering in her ear. I balled my hands into fists and felt Ash’s hand on my shoulder.

“Dude calm down, she’s into you remember, she would be stupid to dump you for him,” Ash reassured me. I calmed down a bit but didn’t look that way for the rest of the five hours we were driving.
