It was finally here, the day I had been dreading for the past week. The day Luke and the boys were leaving to go finish off the WWA tour. I wasn’t looking forward to him leaving at all but I couldn’t tell him that. I knew it would throw him off his focus if I worried him about how lost I was going to be without him for a whole month. He said I could come with him if I wanted but I said no. I didn’t want to be that girlfriend that followed her boyfriend everywhere because she can’t be independent, and Luke was going to be away from me a lot throughout our relationship so I needed to get some practice in. Besides having me around would distract him from his performance and I didn’t want that either.
We all went to LAX together but I was catching a flight to New York and Luke was headed to Canada. They weren’t even that far apart but they felt like a million miles. Luke wheeled my suitcase all the way through even though I insisted I could do it. Our flights were both at relatively the same time so it was really just a waiting game to see whos’ flight would be called first. I sat in Lukes’ embrace the entire wait not wanting to let go, but knowing I had to eventually.
"Flight F4994 to JFK now boarding" The voice said over the intercom. I sighed to myself standing up. Luke sighed deeply standing up. “We’ll give you guys a minute” Ashton said gesturing to the other boys to give us some privacy.
I smiled weakly at Luke as he looked down at me, hands sunken deep into his pockets. He smiled down, biting down on his lower lip. We both new what the other was thinking but didn’t say anything. "Hey, it’s only a month right?" Luke said trying to lighten the mood. ”Yeah, it’ll be fine” I said trying to positive. ”I promise I’ll call you everyday okay?” Luke said intertwining my left hand with his right hand. “Luke don’t stress too much, just focus on your shows. I promise I’ll still be here when you come back” I said giggling slightly. He chuckled. ”Yeah I know, I just don’t want us to grow apart between now and September” He said running his fingers through his hair.
I smiled at him. I leaned up pulling his face towards mine by the collar of his plaid shirt. "I promise you I’ll be ready and waiting for you when you come back okay?" I said leaving a small peck on his lips. "Okay" He said half smiling back at me. I let go of his collar, letting him stand upright again. “I’m going to miss you, you know that?" He said pulling me into a hug by my hips. I wrapped my arms around his torso, due to the height difference. "I’m going to miss you too" I said leaning my head as far into his chest as I could. We just stood in silence, enjoying each others presence for a few minutes. Luke kissed the top of my head. “They just called my flight, I better go” He said hesitantly leaning out of the hug. ”Good Luck” I told him as he grabbed his bag. “Thanks, just pretend I’m preforming to you every night” He said with a wink.
I laughed. "Okay, sounds like a plan" I said giggling. ”See you in a month" He said blowing me a kiss before walking off to his gate and so did I.
