It's been a month since Luke and I talked. A month since I first messaged him.
I shouldn't be surprised, I mean he is some famous guy with a band. It's not hard to forget about some girl you met at a hotel.
The thing is though, I thought we were friends.
Maybe my last message to him made him mad? Maybe we weren't actually friends.
Whatever the reason was, I didn't have the courage to message him.
So when my phone rang with his name on the screen, I didn't know what to do.
I wanted to answer it, but I also wanted to ignore it and pretend he never called.
Did he want me to answer?
I found myself sliding right on the screen and holding the phone up to my ear.
Why would someone call if they didn't want you to answer?
"Hello." I said as calmly as I could, I was doing my best to keep my voice from shaking.
"Darling, why haven't you been talking to me?" He asked, his slight accent filling my ear, he sounded confident.
"Oh, I didn't, know if you were busy." I answered lamely.
He laughed loudly.
"So, you can still talk to me."
"Anyways, I called because I wanted to know if you wanted to come to a party. It's tomorrow night."
"Sure. What hotel are you in?" I asked before I thought about it.
I'd never really been to many parties before,
only birthday parties, but I wanted to see Luke again.
"I'm at my house. The party is at my house." He laughed.
"You don't live in Miami." I stated furrowing my eyebrows. Why would he invite me to a party when we're in separate states.
"I live in LA. Don't worry, you can fly out. I'll get you a ticket."
My eyes widened.
What is he thinking?
"Luke, thats really sweet of you but you don't have to."
"You need to live a little, that's why you're invited. I'll get you a flight for first thing tomorrow."
"Really Luke, it's fine, it's really expensive."
"You're coming whether you want to or not, it my money. Also, you'll get to meet my band."
I looked at the clock seeing that it was nine thirty at night. I considered declining again but decided it was pointless.
"Is it a big party?" I asked, suddenly nervous.
"No. It will just be a small house party is all. We're celebrating cause our album is half done."
I raised an eyebrow. Why not wait until it's all done? I didn't ask this though.
"Okay, sounds cool. Thank you Luke."
"You're welcome, and it's princess remember?"
"How could I forget."
"I gotta go now, I will message you with all the details later, bye."
I said the phone down on the counter.
Did he really just invite me to a party? A party that is across the continent. Did I really just agree to go?
I pushed the questions out of my mind and headed to pack a suitcase.
I dug around in my closet until I found my old, dusty suit case.
I brushed it over and sat it on my bed, unzipping it to find crumbs.
"Gross." I said as I shook it onto the floor.
I went over to my dresser and pulled it open, pulling out three pairs of shirts.
I still don't know how long I'll be there, are three shirts enough?
I placed them in my suit case and pulled out two more, shrugging.
Better bring extra.
I pulled out five pairs of pants too, sitting them beside my shirts. I grabbed even more underwear because you never know how many you will need, same with socks.
After I had almost all of my clothes packed I went and grabbed a spare toothbrush and deodorant. I did not want to stink around Luke.
Not much longer after that, my phone vibrated.
I hurried over to it, picking it up to see who I had gotten a message from.
It was obviously Luke.
Luke: Your flight leaves at nine in the morning tomorrow, I'll send you the ticket through email
I furrowed my eyebrows.
Stormella: It works that way? It's Stormella@gmail.com
It took him a few minutes to respond so I went back to packing until he did.
Luke: It does when you can bribe people
I laughed at that, the thought of Luke bribing an airport worker over the phone. My phone buzzed again.
Luke: You should go to bed darling, you'll have to be up early tomorrow
I knew he was right, but I wanted to stay up and talk to him. I moved my suit case off my bed and climbed under the covers.
Stormella: Goodnight Princess
Luke: Goodnight darling
What the fuck did I just do? I am going to get my ass kicked.
I walked back and forth in my kitchen.
I lied to her, but I want to see her.
I pleaded my hands on my head and pulled my hair slightly.
I mean, it is small for the parties we usually have, but there's no way a normal person would classify this party as small.
I felt like an ass. There are going to be almost two hundred people here tomorrow night and I told her it was small.
I grabbed my phone, thinking about telling her how many people would be here, but I didn't. I want to see her.
Since I've gotten home she's slowly filled my mind. She distracts me when I'm thinking about a certain someone, I've actually managed to keep myself from drinking a couple times just by thinking about her.
I don't like it.
There's only a few things that makes someone do these things.
I pushed the thoughts out of my head.
I've been with several girls since I've gotten home. I can't even remember their names, but with her, it's different.
It's cause you're friends, you didn't hang out with all your other girls.
I smiled, that's true, I never got to know them.
I relaxed a little at the thought.
Hey guys, sorry about the wait. I just finished my last semester at college and it was crazy. Anyways, here's a chapter, sorry it's kinda short.
