Speechless

When Liam finds the girl of his dreams, she stops him dead in his tracks. She's perfect. Long blonde hair, brown eyes, a pretty smile. There's only one thing stopping him from getting to know her better; she doesn't talk. When her mother and younger sister passed away, Ashton fell into a deep depression that she never quite got out of. She didn't want to talk to anyone about what happened; especially not the therapists her grandparents signed her up for. So, she didn't. She vowed not to talk about the accident ever again. Can Liam find a way to bring out the voice that was buried with Ashton's mom and sister?

5. 5.

     I grumble as I try to escape the comforter cocoon I created for myself last night. I finally find an opening. I gulp in an astonishing amount of air, like it's the last breath I'll ever take. I'm sure I look a mess, hair all over the place, t-shirt on backwards. I was too busy on Cloud 9 last night after I got home from Liam's to care what I dressed in. I reluctantly push myself out of bed and yawn. My stomach growled, so I amble up the stairs in my slippers. I pour myself some Cheerios and they clink into the glass bowl. As I open the fridge to grab my milk, I start daydreaming about Liam. I twirl back to my bowl and unscrew the milk cap. I begin pouring it and feel a cold sensation on my foot.

     When I look down, I realize I'm not even close to pouring the liquid into my bowl. I curse under my breath and grab some paper towels. I wipe up my mess and pour the milk in the bowl. I chomp down on my Cheerios and decide I'm in the mood for music. I grab my bowl in one hand and phone in the other. I toss the bowl into the sink as I walk by and grab the speakers to plug into my iPhone. After skipping a billion songs, I decide on one. 

     You call me up, It's like a broken record, saying that your heart hurts; that you'll never get over him getting over you.

     And you end up crying, and I end up lying, 'cause I'm just a sucker for anything that  you do.

     And when the phone call finally ends, you say 'thanks for bein a friend,' and we're going in circles again and again...

     I dance around my kitchen using my spoon as a microphone. My music slowly fades out, and I realize I'm getting a call. I stumble over to my phone, dizzy from spinning, and rip the speakers out of the headphone jack. It's Liam. I pick up. 

     "Ashton, hey. I'm sorry for calling so early,"-I glance at the clock. It's 1:09 p.m.-"but, I just wanted to say I can't wait to see you again." I smile, then realize he can't see that. He can't hear me nod either. I'm all out of options, might as well walk the plank now. "I should've just texted you." I giggle. "I'll do that now, okay? You better reply, because now I know you're not busy." You know how when someone's genuinely smiling, you can hear the happiness in their voice? I heard it in Liam's, which made me smile too. "Goodbye, babe," he says, and a beep sounds. I sigh. 

     I get a text just a few minutes later. I reply, he replies. Pointless banter, really. He invites me to come over again. I happily accept. "gotta get through the toy storys, yeah?" I laugh at his childish text. Not that it was stupid, but I found it cute. After I get the details about hanging out again, I plug my phone back into the speakers. 

     I dedicate this song to you, the one who never sees the truth, that I can take away your hurt, heartbreak girl.

     Hold you tight straight through the daylight, I'm right here. When you gonna realize that I'm your cure, heartbreak girl?
