Forever Young

"It was the first kiss and the first time I felt connected to anything."


25. Chapter 25

After we did cake, Ashton insisted that we go. He wouldn't let Cal keep me there a moment longer.

"Well here's my number," He writes it on the back of my hand. "Call me if you ever need somebody to talk to." Calum smiles.

"Thanks Cal," I say.

"Anytime chica."


"Calum didn't talk you into doing anything stupid did he?" Ashton and I walk hand in hand to the car.

"No, I'm a smart girl." I nudge him and he laughs. When we get to the car Ash opens the door for me and I climb in.

Ya know, I don't think I'll ever get used to that.

"So, did you have fun?" He asks as we pull out.

"Of course, more fun than I thought I was gonna have, that's for sure."

"Did you like the boys?"

"Oh yea, Calum's great."

"I knew you'd like him…" Ash says.

I find myself staring at his wrists, looking for scars or cuts or wristbands. He's wearing about 6 bands on each wrist, but I thought it was just his style.

I had no idea it could be hiding something.

And just when I'm about to give up, I see the slightest cut that's hardly visible on his right wrist, and there's no doubt in my mind that there's probably more.

I take his right hand and hold it, I bring it up to my lips and kiss it. Ash looks at me, and then back on the road.

"What was that for?" He asks. The thought of him pulling out that blade is unbearable.

"Nothing. Just because I love you." I say, he smiles.

"I love you too," He rubs my hand with his thumb. "Thanks for an amazing birthday." He says.

"It's not over yet." I reassure him.

You know I wasn't sure about his last present.

I was actually really scared.

But knowing his secret,

knowing that he hated himself, his beautiful self at one point in his life.

I don't know,

It changed my whole perspective.

I want to give him this.

I want him to know that he's perfect, that I'd do anything for him and that I love him.

I just hope he loves himself as much as I love him.

"What do you mean?" Ashton asks.

"Nothing, just…" I pause.




"Don't take me home."
