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?


4. The Plan

Skylar’s POV   

I grabbed Luke’s arm and pulled him away from the scene that I felt unfolding and over under the shade of a nearby tree. I let go of his arm and leaned against the tree trunk with one foot on the trunk, and looked away crossing my arms.

“Did I do something wrong?” Luke asked with worry in his voice.

“Is there a reason Ashton shoved me into your chest?” I asked looking at him.

“Probably because I pushed him towards Emily so he could ask her out.” Luke sighed looking away. “I guess he is a little nervous.”

“He shouldn’t be, Emily likes Ashton ” I chuckled under my breath.

“Wait, really?” Luke looked back down at me. I smiled at him and pointed back over at Ashton and Emily smiling and talking.  “I’ve never seen Ashton smile like that.” Luke’s mouth dropped wide open with surprise.

"I'm not surprised he's smiling like that. Emily is a great girl and she never breaks a heart, so your friend is safe." I smiled watching them talk as Emily's smile grew and she looked more comfortable.

“Told you Luke and the boys would be here.” A low voice spoke behind us, we both whipped around to see Drake standing there with his arms crossed and smiling. “So Luke I was wondering if I could ask a favor.” I could tell something was up.

”Drake, where are you going with this?” I asked raising an eyebrow at him, noticing something in his voice.

“Well if you won’t ask him someone has to do something about it. Come on it’s our last day in Sydney. You really want to leave like this.” He gave me a smirk and walked away.


Luke’s POV

“WHAT?” I let out a scream before I even noticed. Sky looked at me with wide eyes. “What does he mean last day? You can’t be leaving.” I grabbed her arms before I could stop myself.

“Luke it’s not like I live in Sydney I can’t stay forever. I’m here on a trip up the east coast of Australia.” She sighed and looked away with sadness in her eyes like she was about to cry.

“Then I’m coming with you!” I almost yelled and she looked at me shocked.

“Luke, you barely know me. Why would you want to follow a girl you just met yesterday? A girl that knocked you down in the middle of the street.” She searched my face for some explanation for what I was doing.

“I don’t care about that; call me crazy but being knocked down by you is the best thing that has ever happened to me. In the street and at the party, ever since I met you my life has just gotten better. I’m not about to let you go, not without a fight.” I took her hands and looked deep in her eyes.

“Luke, I-“ Before she could finish I covered her lips with mine and wrapped my hands around her waist and pulled her against me. She didn’t even hesitate to kiss me back. She pulled me closer and turned her head to deepen the kiss and wrapped her arms around my neck smiling into the kiss. I was well aware that my friends and Sky’s were probably watching us, but I didn’t care. The only thing on my mind was Skylar. I kissed her passionately and put all of the love I had in my heart in that kiss. Her hands slowly went into my hair and she tangled her hands in it. I wasn’t going to let her leave. I will make her fall in love with me. I will make her fall hard. I will make her love me as I love her. I finally was able to pull myself away from her lips but kept my hands locked around her waist, and she didn’t complain, keeping her hands around my neck in my hair. I looked into her hazel-green eyes for a second before nuzzling my face in her blond hair, breathing in her scent of vanilla. I tightened my grip and pulled away looking at her face.

“Look, Skylar, I may have only known you for a day, but you’re already the most amazing girl I have ever met. I won’t let a girl as incredible as you go, no matter what.” I pulled her into a tight hug and nuzzled my face in the crook of her neck. I breathed her in and never wanted to let her go.

She smiled and let me go.  “Come on.” She grabbed my hand and pulled me over to the center of the green to her group and explained the whole situation to them, their eyes getting wider and wider.

“Well it wouldn’t hurt to have a couple extra Australians rolling with us, plus ‘Barbie boy’ over here is totally head over heels for Skylar.” Conor laughed.

“You do know he has a name right?” Claire narrowed her eyes at Conor.

“Yeah but I like calling him Barbie boy.”

“CONOR!” Skylar yelled at Conor. “Would it kill you to call him Luke? I mean it’s not a hard name.” She glared at Conor who just smiled back at her causing her face to soften slightly. I patted her shoulder to tell her it was okay and looked at the leader of the group, an Aussie by the name of Kim. Her dirty blonde hair was tied back in a messy bun. She was wearing jean overalls with a dark green t-shirt and her bright green eyes were wide with surprise but soon became soft.

“So, is it okay if me and my mates tag along, we’ll drive ourselves, and we won’t be a bunch of pains?” Kim looked around at the group a few times searching for an answer then smiled up at me.

“From what I’ve heard you really care about Skylar, according to Conor, she has never smiled like that… ever, which is a shame because that is a beautiful smile that you have put on her face. Plus I think the gang would have fun with a few Aussies along and seem to like you boys, so why not? Let’s make the most of this adventure.” Kim smiled and winked at us.

“YES!” Sky jumped up and down and wrapped her arms around my neck once more and I hugged her back.


Skylar’s POV

I couldn’t contain my excitement, I jumped into Luke’s arms and wrapped my arms around his neck and felt him snake his arms around my waist and spin me around easily like I weighed as much as a feather. I was so glad that he was coming on this trip. After having my arms around Luke for what seemed like forever I finally noticed that everyone was staring at us. Some had wide-eyed looks of surprise, others just simply smirking or grinning at us.

“Well, you two seem to already be a couple,” Emily said walking up behind us with Ashton next to her and Michael and Calum following close behind.

“How’d it go?” I whispered in Emily’s ear. She just smiled and took Ashton’s hand. He didn’t complain “Well I guess that meant it went well.” I smiled and Luke took my hand. Kim then asked the boys to sit down and join us so she could continue. Emily sat with Ash; Calum took a seat by Emily’s twin, Mary and Michael next to Claire. Luke looked around and whispered, “Looks like all my friends have a little crush.” I smiled and turned back to Kim and she began to explain the trip to everyone and it sounded like a lot of fun. We were all talking, making jokes, and having such a good time that before we noticed it was getting late so we all starting walking back to the hostel. The walk felt long and the whole time Luke didn’t let go of my hand.

“So, boys we’ll be leaving tomorrow morning so be here by 7:30 packed and ready to go,” Kim told the guys.

“Don’t worry about it. I called our parents and they dropped off a bunch of clothes so we are set.” Calum said.

‘Yep, and I got a room for the four of us for tonight, so we’ll be ready when you guys are.” Mikey smiled and held up a key card.

“Alright, then we’ll see you boys in the morning” Kim smiled and we all started to return to our rooms, as I turned Luke grabbed my wrist and pulled me towards him then giving me a peck on the check.

“Goodnight” I smiled and gave him a peck on the nose then turned and went back to my room.
