Long Way Home

Chapter 2

Kyeilyanni's POV

When I woke up, I found Luke still next to me. His sleeping face was just too cute. I noticed that it was 8:45 p.m. so I decided to get in the shower then wake Luke. I didn't want to disturb him now because I know that the past day he didn't get any sleep because he was too worried for me.

I honestly feel terrible for making him like that, but all that matters now is that he's okay. "I love you." I whispered into his ear gently and then walked into the bathroom.

Luke's POV

I was laying with my eyes closed because I wanted to make sure that Kyeilyanni wasn't going to leave me and cry to herself again. She woke up the next minute and just sat there looking at me. "She is just too adorable", was all I could think about.

She walked over to my side and said "I love you." Then she walked off. When she was out of my sight, I opened my eyes and my face became really hot. I looked into her dresser mirror and my face was bright red.

I just then remembered what happened a few hours ago and my heart was beating loudly. Before I could become any more nervous than I was I walk down her stair steps and into the kitchen. It's a really bad habit I have to just walk into the kitchen at my house.

When I entered the room I saw Mr.Hotchkins sitting at the table. My hands were sweating and I clenched up. I was expecting him to think I was some kind of creep, but he greeted me kindly and I felt like family. It was nice to know that her parents accepted me.

While Kyeilyanni was getting ready I helped her mom prepare dinner. It was fun and enjoyable. Kyeilyanni looked more like her dad gentle, and acted like her mom. She's sweet but she can keep things to herself. After dinner I was planning to take Kyeilyanni to a movie since we couldn't yesterday. I really do love her.

Kyeilyanni's POV

I got out of the shower, but Luke wasn't there. I wasn't too worried because I knew that he wouldn't have left. I waited in my towel for a few minutes before I decided to get dressed. I chose a blue floral crop top and black skater skirt and black vanz. I got dressed and then went down stairs.

I saw Luke and my mom making dinner I stood there and admired him until he saw me. I quickly looked away, but he had already noticed me. He walked over to me and kissed me. "I love you too." He said in my ear so only I could hear.

I was so embarrassed. I pulled him into the family room so mom couldn't see us. "Y-you were awake? Wh-why didn't you tell me? I'm s-so embarrassed now." I was stuttering and hiding my face with my hands. Luke pulled away my hands and kissed my forehead.

"You don't have to hide your feelings because I love you too." I couldn't hold back. I reached forward, wrapped my arms around his neck and kissed him. I was very gentle and our breathes and lips were in perfect sync.

Mom and dad were peeping at on us, but Luke didn't mind. He let go of my lips and grabbed me by the hands and we walked into the kitchen together. Mom and dad ran back to where they were before and acted as nothing happened.

I set the table and mom served the food. The table was full of laughter and bliss. I was amazing. I thought that the atmosphere was going to be awkward, but it as if Luke was a part of the family. I hope that one day he is.

Luke's POV

Dinner was great and enjoyable. When we finished Kyeilyanni and I walked up to her room and sat on her bed. She got on her phone and began texting her friend Emily. Emily was one of the only people that didn't judge her and cared for her. She's cute, but I love Kyeilyanni.

I leaned over and kissed her on her neck. Her face was bright red and it was absolutely adorable. She looked up at me and I gently kissed her. We broke apart and stared at each other for a while before I broke the silence. "Do you want to go watch a movie?" Her face lit up and she ran down stairs and out the door.

By the time I got out of the house she was already in my car and buckled up. I just chuckled. I got in and started heading toward the nearest theater. She was laughing at whatever she and Emily were talking about and I became jealous. There was no reason to, but it was just because I wasn't the cause of her laugh. Her face changed from lovable to surprised. What could they be talking about?

We pulled into the theater and she looked over to me. I couldn't read her expression. It made me worried, because what if she was getting bullied again? What isn't she telling me? "Do you think we could watch the movie with Emily and Dylan?" I had no objections because other than Ashton, Michael, and Calum I was somewhat friends with Dylan.

"Okay" I said trying to show here that I was worried about her. We went to meet up with the Dylan and Emily and we decided to watch Spy. 42% of the time she was talking with Emily about god knows what, and the other 58% percent she was sitting on my lap laughing insanely.

The movie finished so we just drove home. I was silent for most of the ride. "When did you join a band?" When she said this she wasn't even looking at me. She was looking at the window. "Is this what you were worried about?"

I can't believe that, that's what she so worried about. "Of course! What's going to happen what you are gone? What if you forget about me?" She was on the verge of crying. "You idiot! How could I forget about you? You're the only one I love you should know this."

She smiled widely and fell asleep on my shoulder. I parked near the curb of the drive way and carried her into her house. Her mother and father were in the family room watching a movie.

They both told me good night and to sleep well. Kyeilyanni hugged me tightly as I was carrying her. I set her on the bed kissed her good night and before I knew it I fell asleep with her beautiful face next to mine.
