Wrapped Around Your Finger
It's a warm summer night, I'm a bit tipsy, and this is what I'm doing- Standing outside Kat's house, throwing rocks at her window.
"C'mon Kat." I mumbled to myself. "Finally." I gasped as I saw her in the window, an angel in disguise.
What is with rocks on my window tonight? I swiftly get up and look down. "Liam..." I whisper to myself.
I approached Liam and Luke in the courtyard of the hotel.
"Neither." I spoke.
"Neither?" They both asked.
"You're going to make me choose, I choose neither. This is goodbye."
I quickly turned and left.
I gather myself as everything comes flooding back, and grab a jacket.
"Liam, what are you doing here? It's midnight."
"I can't sleep."
"Liam, I smell the alcohol on your breath. Go home."
"Kat... Talk to me."
"What is left to talk about, Liam?!" I shouted.
"US! You! Me! What happened?!"
"YOU didn't have time for me! For us! I left! YOU AND LUKE made me choose! I CHOSE NO ONE!"
"Kat? What the hell is going on? ... Liam?"
"Luke?! So you did CHOOSE?!"
"Jesus fucking Christ! No I didn't! You both showed up on my doorstep, or backyard for that, drunk! I'm giving you both the time you asked for! So how about we sit the fuck down and finally talk about this!" I screamed myself to tears. The boys sat dumbfounded. We all took a seat in the grass, criss-cross, in a triangle. "Thank you." I spoke calmly, wiping my tears. "So... Tell me what I was supposed to hear that night in the courtyard, before the band fell apart... The tour ended... I didn't give you a chance, so here it is."
I sat back patiently waiting for one of them to start.
I watched Kat's tears fall and felt like a complete arse. This girl has me wrapped around her finger, and she doesn't even know it.
"May I?" I asked, they both nodded.
"From the moment I saw you walk in the tour rehearsal room I was stunned. That night I walked you home, I was falling. You were, and are, the best thing that has ever happened to me. You make going on tour more easy, fun, likeable. Your touch gave me chills, your kiss sparked me. I am so in love with you. I need you. Please." Liam choked up, and I'm sure he wasn't done, but he was for now. I wanted to tackle him and kiss him, and never let him go... Then Luke cleared his throat.
"Me?" he asked, we both nodded.
"Kat, you make me feel alive. You're like a drug to me, I can't get enough. I came here tonight because I want you. I need your arms around me, telling me everything is okay. You make everything okay." Luke finished, and yet, I still felt empty around him, I have since I felt like we were all about lust and not love.
"Me, right?" They nodded.
"You both mean the absolute world to me, but our situations were unhealthy. I was horrible to you, Liam. And I was never fair to you, Luke. I want a fresh start. I don't want to choose. I want something new, and you guys could use it too. Liam, the band isn't doing great, you need a distraction. Luke, you haven't been okay, you need a distraction. You both make me feel great, and wanted, and loved. So for now, we'll all be friends, and each hang out separately when we can. Sound good?"
They both sighed, but nodded.
"Please go home and sleep this off."
"You want us to drive?" Luke asked.
"No... I have two couches. I'll see you in the morning." I said, and walked back to my bedroom. The bed felt empty without either of them, but it had for months. They don't even realize I'm wrapped around their fingers.
I may lose Kat to Liam. Now I really have to prove myself. I'm wrapped around her finger, and now I have to prove I will do anything.
Who to choose? Who to choose?
