"Gemma! Ashton's here!" My Mum called.
"Okay! I'll be down in a second!" I called back. I was about to go on tour with my brother and his band since I had just finished school, and my Mum said I needed to 'get out more', which meant she didn't want me cooped up in my bedroom all day just moping about because of what had happened a few months ago when my Dad sent me to live with my Mum, brothers, and my sister.
"Gemma! Now!" She called after a moment. I quickly jumped up and ran down the stairs, holding onto my suitcase that held my valuables and what I would need for a something-month-long tour. Just as I reached the bottom of the stairs I saw my brother, who I hadn't seen since I got to our Mum's house.
"Hey, let's go." He said, taking my bag from me and I followed him out to our Mum's car.
"So how have you been?" Ashton asked as we settled in the car waiting for our Mum.
"Okay, I guess." I shrugged, nervously pulling down my sleeves out of habit.
"Oh, cool, I guess. Listen, I want to ask you something." He trailed off, fiddling with some of his bracelets. "Why was Mum forcing you to tour with us? I mean I don't mind because I missed you, but what happened?" Just as I was about to reply, my Mum came in the car.
"Okay, let's go to the airport." She said, and quickly backed out of the drive.
"Do you want a coffee?" Ashton asked me after our Mum left because she had errands to do. Ashton and I were waiting for the other lads to get here so we could get on our plane. I've only met Luke one time when I came to visit last year and Luke and Ashton were hanging out.
"I don't drink coffee, only tea." I told him as we walked towards a tiny coffee shop.
"Okay, well, you can get tea." He laughed, poking me in the side. He then took out his phone, turned it on, and then said, "Ah, Calum, Michael, and Luke are here, so here's money, you can get your tea, then look around for us." He handed me a ten, which was far more than I needed. He must have seen me looking at it, because he said, "Just keep the change." Then he was off to find the others.
I continued to stand in line until it was my turn to order what I wanted. "I'll have a tea."
"Sorry, Miss, but we don't have tea." Shit. Well, I didn't want to walk away without anything.
"Alright, then I'll have a coffee." I said.
"Okay, that will be three eighteen." The woman at the counter said, and I handed her Ashton's money, and moved to the side to wait for my drink. I slowly pulled out my phone so I wouldn't look alone. I went onto twitter, deciding to tweet something.
'@gemmairwin: I prefer tea over coffee but thank you Sydney airport for having no tea and forcing me to get coffee'
"Plain coffee." Someone said, and I knew they made the coffee, so I just walked over and grabbed it. Hey, I might as well just give the coffee to Ashton since I don't want it, but Ashton might want milk or something in it. I literally have no idea how to make coffee I only drink tea, but I think it's the same. I went over to the counter with the things for extra things to your drink. I poured in a bit of milk, then some sugar, and stirred it with a stirring stick thing, then put the lid back on and left the shop.
As I was walking to go find Ashton I tripped over somebody's leg. Wow, great job, Gemma. Just as I was nearing the ground somebody grabbed around my stomach stopping my complete fall, but not stopping the coffee that spilled everywhere.
"Shit, Gemma, sorry." Wait, what? How did they know me?
I looked up and saw I had tripped over Ashton and Luke had caught me. I realized Luke was helping me stand up, so I gently stood up to make it easier for me.
"I'm sorry, Ash, I didn't see you." I said tossing the empty cup of coffee into the bin her was leaning against.
"I thought you didn't drink coffee?" Ashton asked me, as he stood up.
"I don't, they just didn't have any tea." I explained, looking around for somebody to tell I had spilled the coffee, but saw that someone was already walking towards us to clean the mess.
"Cal and Michael are in the toilets, and we were waiting for them." Luke said. "By the way, if you didn't already know, because you might not remember me, I'm Luke."
"I know that." I laughed, looking into his eyes.
"Oh, okay, that's, uh, great." He stuttered.
"When will the plane be here?" I asked changing the subject.
"I have no idea, but not for awhile." Ashton answered. Dammit.
SORRY ABOUT THE BOOK CHANGE BUT I HOPE YOU'LL STICK WITH ME !!
