The sound of the front door slamming jolted Luke from his thoughts forcing him to get up from his chair in the bedroom and investigate the sound of the noise.
“Y/N?” He called out. “Baby was that yo-” He stopped short when he saw none other than the very person he hated more than anyone in the world sitting daintily on the couch where he had left you.
“Hello Lucas.” Her high pitched voice was toxic to him.
“What the hell are you doing here. Where’s Y/N?”
She scoffed, standing up and making her way towards him. “You mean that poorly dressed little thing you were keeping? I let her out with the rest of the trash.” She reached up and touched his bicep giving it a little squeeze. “You can thank me later.”
Luke grabbed her wrist, forcing her off of him. “What did you say to her?” He was furious.
“I didn’t have to say anything Lucas. You said it all yourself.”
“What do you mean?”
“I don’t care about her? “She is absolutely nothing to me? You really should soundproof these walls Lucas.” She smirked.
“I wasn’t talking about her. she’s smart enough to know that. What the hell did you say?” Luke was furious that Sabrina would stoop so low as to ruin the one good thing he had going for him.
“I just told her the truth. That we’re engaged and she’s not welcome here.” Sabrina shrugged.
“No, we will never be together. When will you get that through your head!?” He yelled right in her face but she only raised an eyebrow.
“Even if it means being cut off? Surely not even you are that dense. Besides, I know you wouldn’t throw away fame and fortune for a girl you picked up off a street corner.” She scoffed, laughing.
“Don’t you dare talk about her that way and don’t pretend like you know me.” He spat, before turning away from her and grabbing his leather jacket off the couch.
“Lucas, where are you going.” Sabrina pouted. “Your mom is expecting us for tea in twenty minutes.”
Luke slipped on his sunglasses and raised his eyebrows at her.
“Out to find the girl I love.” Luke flung open the door and was about to walk out before he stopped, turning back to face her. “Oh and you better not be here when I get back. I’m not used to taking out the trash on my own.”
The cold autumn wind bit at your skin as you hugged your hoodie closer to your body for warmth. You didn’t really know where you were going, only that you were in fact going. Buying a bus ticket and skipping town crossed your mind, but you had already almost saved enough for the first down payment of an apartment and you weren’t about to waste any of that money fleeing from a boy who wouldn’t even come looking for you.
Luke. His name alone made your stomach churn. He had betrayed you. Tricked you into thinking that you mattered to him, when in reality you had been his charity case all along. The tears rolled down your cheeks like a floodgate had been opened. Why would he have wanted you anyway? He had mansions and private jets and personal chefs at his disposal, there was no way he would settle for a little girl on the street. He deserved a girl like Sabrina. Someone who could match his wealth and stature, not someone he would be embarrassed by.
A clap of thunder jerked you from your pity party. A storm was on its way and you were about to be caught in the middle of it.
“Great.” You mumbled to yourself. “Like today couldn’t get any worse.” You pulled your hood up just as the first drop of rain landed on your skin. Looking up, you saw you were approaching the same park where you had painted with Luke earlier today. Oh how that felt like a lifetime ago now. The drizzle turned into a downpour as you walked down the sidewalk and past the park. The rain soaked through your clothes and the wind chilled you to the bone. Though you were used to the feeling of extreme cold, it was the loneliness that broke you down. You thought you had somebody and now they were gone. It wasn’t only your skin that was cold now, it was your soul. You could feel it freezing as the thought that you would be alone forever took root in your mind. Thunder rang out again only this time it sounded closer. You had to find shelter before the storm or you were going to catch hypothermia.
All of a sudden, you were blinded by the headlights of an oncoming car, speeding straight towards you. You cast your eyes downwards and continued walking expecting the vehicle to whiz by, but instead it pulled to the side of the road mere inches from where you were walking and slammed on the brakes. Terrified, you broke into a run, running away fast from the strange car and the impulsive driver. You thought you heard your name being called as you ran, but wrote it off as the sound of the wind playing cruel tricks. The rain hit your face like bullets, masking your tear stained cheeks. Your toe met an uneven crack in the sidewalk, sending you tumbling down to the wet pavement. You landed on your knees, ripping a hole in your jeans and causing streaks of blood to mix with the mud that was already caked on your skin. You didn’t have the heart to get up from your place on the ground. Your legs were too weak and your heart was too broken.
“Y/N!” You heard your name again. That voice. It couldn’t be? “Y/N oh my God are you alright? I didn’t mean to scare you I’m so sorry!”
Strong arms wrapped around you and pulled you into his chest. A pair of lips kissed your head as he took his own coat off his body and wrapped you in it. He moved to kiss your lips but you pulled away, keeping your eyes cast downward.
“No.” You whispered, pushing him away from you with what little strength you had.
“Baby please just let me-”
“No Luke I don’t want to see you.” You climbed out of his lap and stood up, your knees wobbling as you began walking away from him.
“Y/N, don’t do this please.” He begged and grabbing your arm and turning you to face him. “Just let me explain.” But you only shoved his chest, causing him to stumble back. The agonizing look in his blue eyes could have killed you had you not been so angry.
“I’ve heard enough from you and your fucking fiance.” You spat, taking a few steps back from him and bracing yourself to run away.
“It’s not what you think Y/N.”
“No! I am not letting you lie to me anymore! I can’t sit here and listen to you make up excuses while some other girl sits at home and plans your wedding!” You were screaming at him now, your voice even louder than the howls of the wind.
“She’s not my fiance!” He screamed equally as loud. “If you would listen to me for two goddamn seconds than maybe you would understand!” He took your hands in his and brought them to his chest. “I just need you to understand. Please.” His voice grew soft as he begged you to hear him out. And as much as you hated to admit it, you were just as hooked on him as he was on you.
You furrowed your eyebrows. “But you said those awful things. They were about me I know they had to have been.” You gave him a stubborn look, but he laughed it off.
“Y/N, the only thing I was saying about you was how much I like you.” He tucked a wet piece of hair behind your ear, the rain still pouring down on both of you. “And how much I want to be with you.” His voice was soft now as he leaned in towards you.
“A-And your fiance?” You questioned, but your voice was shaky at his proximity.
“She’s not my fiance. She’s a psycho girl who my parents think will be good for my image if I’m seen with her. Nobody likes her, me included, and that’s who I was talking about when you heard me. She’s the one I don’t care about, not you.”
You were speechless. How could you have been so rash as to immediately assume that he hated you? You felt terrible that you had accused him of all these things when he had been so kind to you.
“Luke I’m so sorry I-”
The feeling of his lips on yours cut you off. His palms were placed on each of your cheeks as he pulled you in as close as you could be to him. Your own hands immediately flew around his neck, tugging him to you. You missed the feeling of him, even if he had only been away from you for a short while.
The rain drenched you both to the bone. His black tee shirt clung to his skin and water dripped down his arms. His hair was matted and stuck to his face, but you didn’t think you had seen something so beautiful in your life.
He pulled away from you, just enough to rest his forehead on yours and stare deep into your eyes. Even in the darkness his sapphire irises shined.
“I’m falling in love with you. Despite how much you love to argue with me and how much you drive me crazy, I have never felt like this about anyone but you. I’m in love with you Y/N.” He smiled, as if he had just come to the realization himself. “God, I am so in love with you.”
He kissed you again, holding you so that you would never be able to slip away from him again. It felt like all of the longing and the passion between you was coming out in the feelings of his lips on yours. It felt raw and dirty and real, full of passion and reflecting exactly what made your relationship with him work. It was messy, but that was just you and Luke. Two opposites that made something right; something whole.
“I love you too Luke.” Your voice came out small, so different from the shouting you had been doing earlier. It was vulnerable, but that was okay.
“I was hoping you would say that.” He smiled at you adoringly.
“Now let’s get out of this rain yeah?” He wrapped an arm around your shoulder and escorted you back to his warm car, settling you inside before running around to his own side and jumping in. He immediately turned up the heat to comfort your shivering body.
After a few minutes of driving in silence, Luke spoke up. “I want you to meet my family.”
Luke pulled up to the gates of the Hemmings Estate, parking his car in the huge garage alongside countless other gorgeous automobiles. He took you by the hand, escorting you through the grand house and up to his bedroom. If you hadn’t known any better you would say he had the master bedroom, but he assured you it wasn’t the largest one in the house.
“So this is your room?” You brushed your fingers across the soft fabric of the couch in the center of the room.
“Yeah, this is home.” He scratched the back of his neck, embarrassed for some reason that he lived in such a beautiful home while you had nothing.
“You’re beautiful.” He smirked and walked over to you, gripping your waist and giving you a quick kiss on the lips. You giggled, walking away from him and skipping into the bathroom that was connected to his room.
“So this is where you shower then?” You bit your lip, giving him a playful look which he returned.
“Mmhm.” He mumbled. “But I bet it would be more fun with you in there with me.” He placed a suggestive kiss on your forehead as you toyed with the hem of his damp shirt. “How about we find out.” You took his lip between your teeth, tugging slightly before slowly pulling his damp shirt over his head. He grinned, allowing you to tug it off before he unzipped your sweatshirt and discarded it on the floor. He then took off your shirt, leaving you only in your bra. He kissed you hard and you could feel his skin on yours as he pulled you close.
“God, you’re so sexy.” He whispered on your lips before he let go of you and went to turn on the water. Steam began to fill the bathroom as Luke quickly unbuckled his pants before stripping himself of his briefs, leaving him stark naked in front of you.
“Your turn baby girl.” He brushed his finger across your cheek as you reached down and unzipped your jeans excruciatingly slow, teasing him.
“No, fuck that.” He growled as he brought you in for another kiss before reaching back to unhook your bra. He began kissing down your neck before trailing kisses down your chest and stomach, reaching the top of your panties. He took them between his teeth, pulling them down your legs.
You moaned at the feeling of him so close to your wetness, threading your fingers in his hair before he stood back to his feet and stepped into the shower, dragging you with him. He pressed your back against the tile walls of the large shower before kissing you hard and reaching down to squeeze your ass, causing you to moan into his mouth. He slid into you with ease, your moans echoing off the bathroom walls as he filled you completely. He felt like heaven, the feeling of him inside you and the warmth of the water showering down was bliss.
“That’s right baby girl you’re the only one I want.” He whispered in your ear. “You’re the only one who makes me-oh shit.” He moaned as you clenched around him and the hot water of the shower cascaded down his back. “-feels so good.” He whimpered. “Y-you f-feel so good baby. So perfect.”
“Yeah? You like that Lukey?” You purred in his ear and he smirked down at you, water dripping down his face.
“Oh, so my little girl like to play huh?” He said as he continued to thrust in and out of you, reaching down to rub your clit as you lightly bit into his shoulder to keep yourself from crying out.
“Yes! Luke!” You moaned his name, scratching your nails down his back as his thrusts became deeper. He was achingly hard and you could feel every beautiful inch as he slid in and out of you.
“Do you want to come for me baby girl?” He cooed.
“So bad, Luke I’m so close please!” He pounded into your sweet spot, moaning your name in your ear as the water from the shower dripped down his face and onto the lips he was kissing you with.
“ I’m cumming with you baby, oh my god.” He moaned, as he gave one final thrust causing both of you to come together in a rhythmic way you had never felt before. It was amazing. He buried his head in your neck, tracing his lips down your jaw and muttering small “I love yous” on your skin. You were breathing heavily, but he continued to place small kissed on your lips before as you muttered.
“Amazing.” He finished for you.
The two of you spent the next few minutes cleaning up. He washed your hair and in turn, you drug a wash cloth over his toned body, scrubbing him clean and leaving kisses all over.
A few minutes later, you were laid on his bed dressed in one of his shirts and your head on his chest.
“I was serious about wanting you to meet my family you know.” He mumbled, as if afraid you would reject the idea.
“I know you were. I just don’t know if I’m ready for that.” You sighed, and he tilted his head down to meet your eyes.
“What do you mean?”
“Luke we both know I’m not going to fit in there. It’s one thing being with you, but having to face your entire family? I don’t think I can.”
“Y/N, we’re not that different from a regular family. You keep trying to put up a wall to separate us and you just can’t! I know it may seem scary because they’re important people, but they are going to love you.”
“And if they don’t?”
“If they don’t then at least I love you. And if I love you, in time they’ll learn to love you too.”
You were quiet for a moment before speaking slowly again. “Alright. I guess it has to happen eventually.”
“How about tonight?”
“Wait. Tonight, tonight?”
“Yeah, uh, we’re having a small get together here. Nothing super fancy, but I could have a dress brought here for you to wear and we’ve got a stylist that will get you ready. I’ll be with you the whole time I promise. Besides, this way you can meet the boys too.” He smiled. How could you say no to that smile? “Okay Luke, make me look pretty.” He kissed your temple.
“You already are.”
A fitting and a hair and makeup session later and you were standing in Luke’s bedroom waiting for him to finish his hair.
“Good god Luke, how much product could you possibly need?” You yelled.
“Sorry, sorry.” He grumpled before stepping out of the bathroom in a pressed suit; his hair done up in a perfect quiff like it was when you met him. He threw his arm around your shoulders and led you downstairs where you could already hear the chatter and the sound of an orchestra.
“Just follow my lead okay?” He whispered in your ear and you nodded.
The moment the two of you were at the top of the stairs all eyes were on you and Luke, jealous stares of girls your age and confused looks from the adults among them. He lead you down the elegant staircase, you clinging onto his arm for dear life.
“Luke so good to see you.” The older lady’s voice dripped with content at the sight of you.
“Always a pleasure Ms. Laws. Have you seen my mother?”
“Why yes, she’s in the ballroom. I believe they’re about to give a toast.”
He then spoke to you. “C’mon we have to hurry.” He pulled you along behind him, despite the fact that you were tripping all over yourself in the high heels he picked out for you.
“Luke where are we going?” “You’ll see soon enough baby.” “LUKE!” Three boys descended upon you and Luke, punching his shoulder in the friendly way that bros are known for. “How’s a goin’ man? Who’s the chick?” They all asked at once.
“Guys, this is Y/N.” He introduced you and the their eyes widened.
The boy with dark hair and brown eyes raised a thick eyebrow. “Oh so you’re Y/N? Well we’ve heard a lot about you. It’s a pleasure to finally meet you. I’m Calum.” He reached out and elegantly pressed his lips to the back of your hand with a devilish smile.
“Nice to meet you Calum.” You gave him a small smile back.
“And I…” The boy with the bleach blonde hair interrupted. “Am Michael. But I’m sure you knew that already.” He winked at you.
“I can’t say that I do. But it’s a pleasure to meet someone who must be so renowned in society.” You spoke with a hint of sarcasm and the boys laughed.
“Luke I like her. Please keep her around, because I don’t know if I can handle the idea of you and Sabrina.” The boy with longer hair joked, but the sound of her name made you feel sick. “I’m Ashton by the way, love.” He charmed, sticking out his hand for you to shake.
“Nice to meet you.”
“Okay babe, I need you to stay here while I take care of some things” Luke pressed a kiss to your temple. “The boys will look after you. I’ll just be a moment.”
“But Luke you said you’d stay with me.” You whispered so the boys wouldn’t hear.
“I know baby, and I’m sorry but this is important okay? You’ll understand soon.”
You nodded your head, miffed that he was to leave you here with three rowdy boys you just met. He leaned down to kiss the corner of your mouth before wandering off to do whatever it is he needed to.
“Oh shit. Incoming.” Michael cringed.
“Y/N, just let us handle this okay?” Ashton commanded. You whipped your head around to look at what they were so worried about when you saw her.
“Hello boys.” Sabrina’s voice dripped with venom. “Shame this place has gone to shambles. Seems like they’ll let any old riff-raff in here if they sleep with the host.” She smirked and your cheeks immediately began to heat up.
“Yeah and you’re much better? Everyone knows you and Tony Ferraro did it in the broom closet last Christmas.” Calum spat, but she barely even bat an eye.
“Oh Calum, I see Luke still lets you hang around. Though I don’t see why as it seems the family business is about to go under isn’t it? Don’t think nobody knows about it, because we’re all just waiting to watch the Hoods fall.” Her comment rendered him silent, but it certainly made you angry.
“Tell me Sabrina, are you more angry that Luke wouldn’t touch you if his life depended on it, or that you lost him to ‘street trash?’” You asked sweetly.
“Damn.” Michael’s voice rang out and the other two followed suit, laughing hysterically as Sabrina’s mouth hung open, searching for what to say.
“Why you little_”
“Welcome Ladies and Gentleman to our home.” Luke’s voice boomed throughout the hall, cutting Sabrina off and turning all eyes to where he stood in the middle of the room. “I’d like to thank you all for coming to our second charity gala of the week.” He joked and the room echoed with small chuckles before he continued on. “Most of you may know, seeing as though this is all the media seems to want to report on, that Ms. Cole and I are supposed to be engaged.” You snuck a glance over at Sabrina who shot you a devious smirk. “But I am here to tell you that those are merely rumors. I am not in any way affiliated with her or the Cole family and have no intention of ever being so in the future.” Gasps sounded from the audience and this time it was your turn to smirk a little. “Instead I would like to introduce you all to my real girlfriend. She may not be what the press call ‘a perfect role model’ or someone who can make a ‘proper influence’ on me, but I don’t care about that. “I am in love with her and that’s all that matters.” Luke began to walk over to you, the spotlight that was shining on him following. “I am so in love with her. No matter her position of stature or wealth, she is the one I will be with and no one can tell me different.” Aww filled gasps rang throughout the room as Luke reached the spot where you were standing. “Y/N I love you.” He spoke into the microphone, but it felt like he was the only one in the room.
“I love you too Luke.” He smiled widely before smashing his lips to yours as the room erupted into applause.
“So this is her eh?” A voice sounded from behind you causing both you and Luke to turn.
“Hi mum. Yes this is her.”
“And your willing to be completely cut off just to be with her?” His mother raised an eyebrow, but there was a mischievous glint in her eye that made you winder what she was doing.
Luke gulped. “Y-Yes.”
She then looked at you, taking you in completely. “Tell me Y/N. Do you love my son?” You glanced up and Luke, his smiling face and gorgeous eyes trained on you alone.
You held your breath as she was silent for a moment before speaking again,
“Then I approve.” She nodded and Luke broke into a grin, grabbing you waist and lifting you off the ground, spinning you around laughing.
Maybe there wasn’t a place for you in the lifestyle of the rich and famous. But there was a place for you in Luke’s heart and a place for him in yours and right now, in this perfect moment, that was all that mattered.
Kylie: “#Day4 - I’m getting a little more personal… When Lizzie Velasquez (@LittleLizzieV) was 17 years old, someone posted a video of her on YouTube calling her the world’s ugliest woman. “By the time I saw the video, it had 4 million views.” Now 26 years old, Lizzie’s condition was diagnosed last summer. Lizzie suffers from a rare congenital disease that less than 10 people in the world are known to have. The disease impedes her from accumulating body fat; she literally has zero percent body fat and has never weighed more than 64 pounds, however though it is not terminal. Throughout her entire life, this condition has resulted in a lot of #bullying. It is so unacceptable to treat people like this. People are so quick to say horrible things about me everyday over and over and sometimes I can’t take it. Even I at times get affected by it, I breakdown, I hide, I cry. It’s resulted in a lot of anxiety for me that I’ve never had to deal with before ever. My every move has been documented for the whole world and its been a nightmare trying to find myself through all of this. And I’ve absolutely lost apart of myself. Lizzie, you are so strong and I admire you so so much. Lizzie has taken that negative energy and has turned it around by traveling around the world doing motivational speeches. When I asked her what the key messages were of her speeches, she told me that “Most importantly I try to convey that all you need to have is a brave heart to accomplish whatever you want to achieve. Let the negative build you up instead of knocking you down. You are enough no matter what; you were put on this earth for a reason” Soon you’ll be able to see her story on the big screen in the documentary film @ABraveHeartFilm in theaters on September 25th. Check out Lizzie’s Instagram @LittleLizzieV - she’s taking a lifetime full of bullying to help teach the world #IAmMoreThan the names they call me. #ImWithLizzie and Lizzie taught me #IAmMoreThan who I think I am. For me, this is expected it comes with the territory. But Lizzie, you should of not had to go through that. Let’s change this together. I love you Lizzie!
I’ll see you soon.”
