I walked into the club and the music was pumping so loudly I could barely hear myself think. I could feel Lukes’ gaze on me from behind as I made my way through the club. I walked confidently to the bar. ”Double vodka on the rocks please” I asked the bartender. He nodded as he walked away to pour me my glass. I turned around, leaning against the bar. “That’s a little heavy as a starter don’t you think?” Calum said leaning against it bar with me.
"I’m not in the mood to be judged for my alcohol consumption, Hood" I said turning to him with a smirk. The bartender brought me over my drink. ”Thanks” I said handing him the money. I held my nose and downed it straight. It tasted vile, but it takes the edge off.
"This wouldn’t have anything to do with Luke now would it?" He asked me and I laughed. “Or maybe I’m just a borderline alcoholic, ever think about that?” I said smirking at him. “Or…maybe Luke really hurt you and now you’re lashing out?” He suggested, raising his eyebrow at me. I just laughed it off. ”Have fun tonight Cal” I said patting his shoulder before turning around to order another drink.
Luke had kept his distance like I asked but that didn’t stop his eyes from following me everywhere I went. Every time I glanced at him, he was always sitting alone on one of the couch, with his beer just hovering under his chin.
At some point in the night, I stumbled onto the dance floor, grabbing the first boy I seen and began dancing with him. I pulled his close to my body as our bodies moved in sync. I caught a glance of Luke and I could tell he was angry. He was biting down on his top lip and his eyes didn’t blink once. I wrapped my arms around the guys’ neck, pulling him closer to me.
I stopped looking at Luke and began concentrating on the music and trying not to fall over. Just when I was starting to get really into the music I felt an arm grab me and pull me to the side. "Luke just fu-" I began but stopped when I realized it wasn’t Luke.
Instead it was Ashton looking at me with a disappointed expression. ”What?” I said folding my arms in front of me, even though I knew exactly what was what. ”Don’t do this, don’t mess things up with Luke just because you’re pissed off” He told me. ”I’m not pissed off, i’m just pissed” I said laughing. Ashton didn’t laugh with me though. "Come on Kate, I know what Luke said was dumb but Luke’s dumb and he just says things because he can. He really does like you" He told me.
"Ashton that’s nice and everything but I’d rather hear that from him" I told him. ”But you know Luke is shit with words” He groaned. ”Look Ash, I appreciate you caring enough about us to help out but this is between Luke and I. And right now he’s the last thing I want to think about. All I want to do is drink until I can’t remember okay?” I said walking off before he could respond.
I staggered to the bar again ordering a random collection of drinks. It went straight to my head and I decided it was best to sit down before I hurt myself. I flopped down on one of the purple suede couches they had. I groaned as I massaged my temples, thinking that it would make my situation better. The couch sank down beside me and I turned me head to see Luke, half smiling at me. “Fuck off” I said leaning into push him, but it didn’t move him even slightly. ”Kate come on, can we just talk, I have something I really have to tell you” He said in a sincere tone which I couldn’t say no to. ”Fine..” I said on an exhale breath.
"Come on, let’s talk outside" He said standing up and offering me his hand. I obliged and took his hand, using all his weight to help me up. I stumbled slightly but Luke caught me. ”Okay?” He asked smiling at me with that smile that I couldn’t resist.
He led me through the crowd, all the way outside. It was cold outside so I held myself to keep in the heat. I leaned against the wall of the club with my back as Luke paced back and forth in front of me. The fresh air hit me which just made me feel even more drunk. I let in a deep breath as I waited for Luke to say something.. “Is this going somewhere? Or can I go back inside?” I asked him getting frustrated. ”Okay, here it goes" He said running his fingers through his hair, while toying with his lip ring.
"You might be too drunk to remember this tomorrow but fuck it. Kate, you’re pretentious and shallow and probably the most stubborn person I know but" He began but I cut him off. ”Luke where is this going? I didn’t come out here to be insulted” I said in an angry tone. ”Wait, but I like you, a lot and I’m an idiot for what I said earlier. I thought that was what you wanted me to say but it obviously wasn’t. And I may come across like I don’t want a serious relationship sometimes but that’s not true. I’m just not very good with them. And I know I say a lot of stupid things and I’m sorry for that. I know you may not know it but I want you, I want to be able to say you’re mine. I know that’s cliche and cheesy but I don’t know what other way to put it. I know I’m kind of rambling now but I hope you realise how much I like you and want to be with you” He said fidgeting with his lip ring.
I laughed to myself at his attempt to give me a big grand romantic gesture. But this was Luke so everything that came out his mouth was always awkward and disorganized, but I knew what he was trying to say.
"Okay, you don’t have to say anything if you don’t want to-" He began but I cut him off. ”Luke? Shut up” I said stumbling over and pushing my lips to his. He smirked into the kiss and pulled me by closer to him. He leaned out. ”Ready to get out of here?" He asked kissing my cheek and I nodded.
"Taxi!" Luke yelled in his heavy Australian accent which made me smile. he taxi pulled over and Luke got in, slamming the door behind him and locking the door. ”Luke?” I said pulling on the door handle. “What?” He asked me with a smirk. ”Open the door asshole” I said raising my voice. “Sorry can’t do that” He said still smirking. "And why is that?" I asked folding my arms across my chest. ”I can’t let you in until you say yes” He said with a smug smile.
"Until I say yes to what?" I asked him, growing impatient. "Until you say yes to being my girlfriend" He said chuckling to himself. "You’re a dick, you know that?" I said laughing at him. "So is that a yes?" He asked raising an eyebrow. "Yeah it is, now open the door" I said pulling at the door again and it opened. I jumped in right beside Luke. hitting him playfully. He chuckled pulling me into his chest, kissing the top of my head.
