~I Don't Care, Icona Pop
I DON'T CARE I LOVE IT YOU WANT ME DOWN ON EARTH BUT I AM UP IN SPACE.
WCW, Lydia Sebring
Saturday April 13th: Bonfire on the beach tonight. Have a few drinks and amazing memories as we all stay up watching the stars in our bikinis and maybe catching that guy we’ve had our eyes on for a while...?
"Ugh, life is so unfair!" I pouted at Muffie, who was painting on rocks she'd found on the beach. We were secluded from the main group of people. I was depressed. Elise was ignoring me as if I'd done something to her...which was so untrue. I could never be mean to her! Or anyone! Besides, my Lukey was all the way in Germany.
Muffie looked up from her rock, stared off into the serene distance and sighed. "Actually, it's not really that bad."
"For you, it's not." I tried to cheer up but it was too hard. Luke was my everything. "And you know what makes it worse?"
"What?" Muffie put her paints and brushes away, rested her chin on her hands and stared up at me from the sand. I sat down on the sand next to her, the waves inching closer and closer to my feet every minute.
"He," I gulped, my eyes watering heavily, "He hasn't even called yet! How am I supposed to know if he's okay? Not a text, a call, anything."
Muffie patted my back, frowning. "Oh, I'm sure he's just having a great time and hasn't found the time to call you. He'll call you soon, though. Or...why don't you call him?"
A great time. In Germany. With people. And other girls. Girls. Ugh. Not good. "I need a crepe. A crepe would make it all better," I glided my toes across the sand over and over.
"Or....you could call Luke! Why wait for him to call?"
I mulled the thought over....I guess I /could/ call him, but would that sound too needy? Him and I'd only been together for a few months...
A tall brunette with wavy hair and a perfect smile walked over to us. "Hi, Muff," she said. Muffie stood up and hugged the girl.
"Hi, I'm Lydia. Your name?" I stuck out my hand for a shake.
"Natasha Miller. Nice to meet you. What are you guys doing over here?"
"Having a pity party..." I forced a laugh.
Natasha laughed too. "Who's the guy?"
My eyes widened. "How did you know?!"
Muffie shared a look with Natasha. "It's written all over your face, Lyds."
"Come on, you guys are missing out on the party. The bonfire's really fun. It'll make you forget all about that jerk." Natasha smiled.
"Luke is not a jerk. Maybe I'm the jerk. You know what, Muffie? I'm taking your advice. I'm going to call him."
She nodded, "Great, okay, you can do it, Lyds." She pat my back and ran off with Natasha.
I was alone. Again. No Luke, no friends, no.... I was wallowing in despair. Where was seizure-girl? She was a great listener. I needed to talk to someone. I knew Elise had recently had an "episode" or something, but she might have some advice? Right? Muffie was nice but I could tell she was getting tired of my moping...
"Okay. No more stalling. Just call him." I told myself. I reached for my phone. I clicked on his last text message, which was seven days ago. And he'd been gone for five days now. Or was it only four? I was so messed up without Luke.
I tapped his name and put the phone to my ear. Did I need a calling card to make a phone call to Germany? Germany was in Europe, right? Well...duh. I google-searched it just to make sure.
Then suddenly the weirdest thing happened. His name popped up on my screen. He was Skype-calling me! Right as I was about to accept the call, Alana bumped into me. "Ah! Watch where you're going!"
"Um, you're the one who bumped into me. I've been standing here for a long time."
Alana let a weird kind of giggle. "Oh, it's you, Lydia. What are you up to?"
"Nothing," I said quickly.
Alana looked at my phone. "Oh, you miss Luke already? How pathetic."
"I thought we were friends." I barely uttered, my voice getting warbled in the increasing wind. Goosebumps shot up all over my bare arms.
"Cold?" Alana asked.
"Yeah, a little." I shrugged.
"Ask your little Luke boyfriend if you can borrow his sweater." She scoffed and shoved past me, joining the bonfire.
Finally, she was gone. I didn't get what her problem was! I really thought we were hitting it off. Was I wrong about everybody?
Tinsley and a few other girls I'd only met once walked over to me. "Hey, Lydia! Why are you all alone. Everything okay?"
"Yeah, I'm talking to Luke!" I showed the phone to Tinsley.
"Yes! Awesome! I told you he'd call!" She gave me a quick hug.
"Thanks. I'll join you guys in a little bit!" I waved them goodbye. Finally. Time to talk to Luke.
Luke skype-called again. I hit accept immediately. "LUUUUKEEE!!!!" I screamed on the top of my lungs. Tears sprung in my eyes and I felt as if I was on fire. I hadn't heard his voice or seen his face in days! He hadn't been updating his Instagram so I really did not know how or what he was doing.
Instead of my precious blonde Luke's face appearing on the screen of my phone, it was a girl's face. A girl. A German girl. She had to be!
"Uhhh hi. Are you Lee-dy-aah?" The girl asked. She had an accent. She was definitely German.
"Yes? And who are you?" I barked.
"I'm Sonja. Wow. You are very pretty."
"What are you doing with Luke's phone?"
The girl had the blondest hair I'd ever seen, blonder than Luke's, and her eyes were a piercing green color. She had huge knockers and even bigger lips. "Lucas, you mean? Lucas is in the shower. I was just searching through his phone. He sure talks to you a lot. Are you hees girlfriend?"
"Uh, yes. And what are you doing in there? Are you two together? Alone? Is that the bathroom door behind you?" The tears were still in my eyes, but now for a very different reason.
"Yeah. Calm down, Lee-dy-aah. I was expecting you to be brunette. I was right."
"WHY HASN'T LUKE CALLED ME IN FIVE DAYS!?"
"It's only been four days. He barely arrived." The girl turned around and yelled at the bathroom door. "Luuuuucas, are you done yet?"
"This is not supposed to be happening. Who ARE you?! Luke is supposed to be at his grandmother or something's funeral!!" I was screaming at the top of my lungs.
Muffie rushed over. "Hey, what's going on?"
"Are you related to Elise? Because it looks like you're having a seizure now." Alana walked by, laughing loudly.
I looked around at everyone and I couldn't speak. Or think. I just grabbed hold of my phone and chucked it as far as I could. Into the ocean.
"What happened, Lyd? You can tell me." Muffie shook my shoulders, her eyes glazed with concern.
I let out a feeble, "I don't know."
