“Did you even miss me?” PART TWO
Luke + Reader
I sat on the bathroom floor, my knees brought up to my chest. I’d stopped crying ten minutes ago, but my breathing was still slightly laboured.
i could hear Luke packing up his things in our bedroom, which only made me want to cry harder,
I brought my hands up to cover my ears, hoping it could block out the sound and feeling of the best thing that had ever happened to me.. leaving.
It didn’t work. I was still thinking about it.
I was stubborn - I didn’t want to go out to him and beg for him to stay. I was afraid of his reaction. I just knew he was going to either ignore me or laugh in my face.
Either way, he would still leave.
I brought my hands down from covering my ears to wipe the tears that had flowed down my cheeks.
I could hear Luke on the phone.
“..Could I stay at your place?” He was moving around the room still. “She’s being annoying. She told me to move out. So I am..”
I squeezed my eyes shut, ignoring the piercing pain in my heart.
I heard him hang up and toss his phone on the bed. He sighed and I had to resist the urge to get up and run to him and hug him and never let go.
As I looked up to the bathroom sink, I realised he had things in here he had to pack as well.
It was probably just an excuse to see him before he left for good, but I grabbed his toothbrush, razor and other things in my hands, before twisting the door handle and pushing it open.
He looked up when I stepped out of the bathroom.
Keeping my head down, I walked past him and into the kitchen to grab a ziploc bag. Dumping his things into it, I sealed it and headed back into the room.
He watched as I placed the ziploc into the same pocket I always did when I was helping him pack for tour.
Out of habit, I started rearranging the clothes he’d haphazardly thrown into his suitcase.
The room was silent. I could feel a few tears sliding down my cheeks, which I wiped away hastily.
I felt him come up beside me and grab my hands, stopping them from folding his clothes.
That was when I let loose. I started crying full-force again, and he pulled me into his chest, letting me cry on his shoulder - it was more like his chest due to the height difference tho.
I can’t remember how long we stood there, him rubbing soothing circles into my back while I soaked his shirt with my tears and snot.
When my cries turned into sobs, he led us to the bed and sat down, pulling me to straddle his lap.
He brought his hands up to my face, wiping my tears away with his thumbs. “I’m not leaving..” He said softly.
I sniffled, not knowing what to say. “I would never leave you, okay?” He continued, twisting the promise ring around my pinky. “I made a promise to you and I’m planning on keeping it, albeit the horrible things I’ve done to you these few weeks. I’m sorry, and I love you, okay?”
“I love you too.” I managed to choke out and he sighed, bringing me closer so our foreheads touched. “I hate it when you cry.” He said and I laughed slightly.
“I know, I’m sorry.” I apologised. “I’m sorry I got mad at you for spending time with your friends and family. I should’ve understood, I mean you don’t get to see them very often. I’m a bad girlfriend.”
“You have nothing to be sorry for. I don’t get to see you much either and I should’ve made time for you. I’m a bad boyfriend.” He said.
I giggled. “We’re both pretty bad, aren’t we?”
He grinned, nodding. “Yeah, we are. But I think we’re pretty good together.”
“We are..” I told him, pressing my lips onto his gently.
He responded quickly, pulling me closer by the waist. I threaded my fingers in his hair as he deepened the kiss and lay down on the bed with me on top of him.
“How could I have even considered leaving? I would’ve been leaving this.” He said in between kisses, slightly out of breath.
“Excuse you. You’re the one who gave me that idea.”
[conversation fades out towards the end of the mini spat but you can’t tell bc this is a story and not a film but yeah you get it]
IT WAS A CRAP ENDING I KNOW I JUST COULDN’T THINK OF ANYTHING ELSE IM SORRY.
Anyways, I’m writing a Calum imagine right now and it should be out in a couple of days so look out for that!
