21. The Call

Ashley's P.O.V

It was getting late, and I was quite exhausted, not remembering a lot can mess with your energy. I stumbled up the stairs, into the room Niall told me was mine. I started taking my clothes off, first my tee then my pants. Niall barged in without knocking while I was pant-less. He didn't even acknowledge me. He walked straight through, like it was normal. I was covering myself up in panic, he stared at me funny then laughed. What is so funny? "Babe. This is normal, I've seen you undressed before." This made me feel even more uncomfortable. "but.. I thought we were just like best friends. Why did I take my clothes off in front of you?" His eyes widened, as if he didn't have an answer to my question. "Uh... We are just,, good friends!" He blushed a bit. I could tell he was lying but I let it go and quickly pulled up my pyjama pants. Niall left the room and into a bathroom with a set of clothes. After he left I turned the lights off and tried to go to sleep. It felt so weird.. "How could I remember El, but no body else? I don't understand." My brain kept on a conversation, not letting me sleep. I had finally dozed off some, and then soon I was fast asleep.

I woke up to the sound of someone somewhere snoring. Where was it coming from? It wasn't a loud obnoxious snore, but a more peaceful silent one. I ignored it maybe thinking it was coming from the next room which was Alex and.. Harry I think it is? I stretched out my arms and hit something. I felt around the top of it, and came to conclusion that it was a face! I screamed as loud as I could hopping out of bed with all the blankets. My eyes were widened, and so were Niall's when he finally woke up from the screams. "WHAT?!" "WHY ARE YOU IN BED WITH ME?!"  I was in panic, did he think it was okay, to just sleep with me. "I am sorry.. The couch is uncomfortable, and the boys slept over so there was no where else." Niall looked really upset about his actions. I couldn't stay mad at that face. "It's okay.. Just wake me after, it scared me!" He nodded. "Can you give me a second?" Niall nodded again and walked out of the room. I knew it was still pretty early, but I still needed to call Steven. I picked up my phone, I think it is anyway. I dialed Steven's number, thank God he kept it. Ring one, no answer. Ring two, nothing. Ring three, notta. Ring four, "Hello?" He sounded exhausted. "Steven?" I asked hopeful. "Who is this?" "Ashley." He changed his mood, "Hey babe! How have you been? I miss you!" Awwh, he misses me! "I am good, actually.. A lot has happened. Want to get coffee or something?" "Yeah, sure. Be there in thirty!" We hung up and I ran to the bathroom to get ready. Mentally I haven't seen Steven in forever. I put my hair in a loose braid, that laid on my right shoulder. I threw on a cut shirt and a cute pair of shorts. I didn't want to do my make-up so I put on a pair of shades to cover my eyes. 

I got Alex to drive me to a coffee shop close to town, I didn't tell her who I was meeting. It wasn't anyone's business except my own. She pulled out front and I got out, I practically ran inside, I was so anxious. I sat there for a good forty five minutes. No one showed. I felt my eyes get heavier, and a lump appear in my throat. I had been stood up. I called Alex, she could tell I was upset. "I will be right there!" She told me. I waited out front crying for a few minutes until an unknown car showed up. They rolled down their window, and I saw Niall. "Come on.." I nodded and got in. I didn't know if I was comfortable crying in front of him, but I did anyway. I cried all the way home, Niall listened to me ramble on and on about my problems. He was a really good friend. But I have to be honest, I think I can see more than a relationship brewing out of this. I might have developed a crush on him.
