"Lets go" Luke suddenly says, making me jump slightly from the abrupt end to the silence surrounding us. We had been sleeping and groaning our hangovers away for the most part of the day, with a lot of help from Mr Panadol, and his friends, H2O and coffee. As well as a little bit of food.

"Where?" I ask, putting my arm over my eyes. I was getting dizzy from watching the ceiling fan spinning for the past 5 minutes. It was definitely one of those days. I had only left the room to pee and get food and water.


"I need to go to work for longer than a week" I say. I had hardly even turned up to my job in the last 2 months, but I don't think my boss minded, because his daughter was working there now, and he didn't have to pay her as much as he paid me.

"I'll call your boss, I have this week off anyway. Let's just go now" Luke says and I'm still surprised by his spontaneity. This literally came out of nowhere, neither of us had bought up Queensland even once today.

"What about flights?"

"I'm sure there will be something"


"So, that's a yes?"

"I guess so" I sigh, and Luke cheers, rolling over his head and off the side of the bed in an incredibly wonky forward roll, hitting his feet on the wall. "I can't be bothered to pack"

"Just take the bag you have here" He suggests and I nod, standing up and beginning to get everything ready. I head into the bathroom and get ready, putting on some fresh clothes as well, before joining Luke out in the lounge room with my bag. He looks up from his phone and smiles at me. "Ready to go?"

"Where are you going?" Calum asks, looking away from the TV.

"Queensland" Luke says, sliding onto Calum's lap.

"What the fuck are you going to Queensland for?" Calum asks.

"My birthday"

"When was this planned?"

"About 25 minutes ago" Luke says, shrugging and Calum nods. "Bye, Calum. We will be back by next weekend" He says, hugging his mate tightly.

"Have fun" He says. Luke gets up from his lap and goes towards Ashton's room, so I lean over the back of the couch and give Calum the best hug I can with a lounge in between us. "Stay safe"

"You too, don't burn the house down" I say and he gives me a toothy grin.

"No promises" He shrugs and I roll my eyes, kissing his forehead before ruffling up his hair and going to Ashton's room as well. I walk in on Luke and Ash hugging, and then Luke says goodbye and walks past me, smacking my butt as he does so, and I roll my eyes again.

I say goodbye to Ashton, giving him a hug and a kiss on the cheek and then I venture into Michael's room, where he is laying down on the bed, Chloe doing sit ups on the floor.

"What the fuck are you doing?" I ask her.

"He dared me to do it" Chloe shrugs. "18, 19, 20!" She counts before getting back on the bed. "What's up?"

"Uh, Luke and I are going to Queensland so I guess I'll see you later?" I say, sitting down at the foot of the bed.

"Wait, what?" Michael says, looking at me.

"Luke was bored, I don't know, don't ask me" I say and they both look at me weirdly. "Hey, you dared her to do sit ups, we all do weird things when we're bored" I defend and they both shake their heads at me. "I didn't come in here to be judged, I came to say goodbye"
