Forever Young

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


36. Chapter 36

Eve's POV:

"You cheated on me?!" I screech at the top of my lungs as I look down at Ashton sitting on the couch.


This has all got to be fake.

A dream.

A nightmare.

No way in hell this is real.

Ashton wouldn't do that.


I start to cry.

"Eve, Eve hear me out, please." He stands and tries to comfort me.

"Evelyn," He whispers. Ash looks at me with his big beautiful eyes and tucks a strand of hair behind my ear, he runs his fingers along my cheek.

"Don't." I push his hand away.

I try and resist the urge to fall into his arms and cry as I think through my options.


Walk out. Talk through this. Cry some more. Kick him in the balls.


I go with option 3.

I don't know what else to do, I can't leave. I don't want to leave.

But I don't want to stay.

I don't want to talk and I don't want to fight.

But I just can't look at him the same way any more.

He's no longer light, and soft. He's no longer my safe haven.

He's my hell.

What he did gave me hell and what he's doing is killing me inside.


"You're too much." I whisper.


"You. This. It's too much."

"Baby, don't say that."

"Don't call me baby." I sniffle.

"It was a mistake. A horrible, stupid, fucking mistake please believe me."

"Ashton I…"

I squint my eyes in hoping that this will all go away.

It didn't.

I look up at Ashton and take in his beautiful appearance. His hair is a mess and his lips are full, so kissable. His cheeks are red and his eyes are glossy.

A silent, quiet tear creeps down his face and he doesn't catch it.




"I can't do this."

Ashton takes a step towards me and takes my hand. I don't respond.

He places my hand on his cheek and leans into it, he kisses my palm and I can't resist this, him.

I place my other hand on his cheek and cup his face, I bring him down to my height and kiss him long and hard.

I don't know when I'm going to be kissing these lips again.

I make every moment count and my heart shrinks.

Loving, passionate butterflies die in my stomach as my tear falls, I separate myself from him and rest my forehead against his.


"You promised." He whispers.


"You promised me you wouldn't leave me."


I sniffle.


"Do you want the best for me, Ash?" I ask. He nods.

"Then please, let me go…"


I wipe his falling tear.

"It won't be forever. Maybe a week, maybe a year. I don't know… But I know you're too much right now…" I start.

"Ashton you have to realize I haven't been in anything this serious, let alone been cheated on… Especially by someone who I love more than anything in this world."

Ashton closes his eyes and holds me closer.

"Don't," He whispers. "Evelyn, I beg of you. Don't leave."


I can't.


I have to leave before this gets harder than it is…


"Goodbye Ashton," I rub his cheek and go on my tippy toes, kissing his forehead as I start to walk away.

I walk to the front door without him grabbing me or running up to me and telling me it never happened, that he didn't sleep with another woman, that he didn't cheat on me and love on someone else.


When I get outside I breathe the cold air in and inhale like I haven't in days.


I actually haven't in days.


I walk out of the parking lot and dial my dad's phone number.


I need my daddy.


"Eve?" He answers calmly, completely fazed by the fact that I snuck out last night and haven't been home since.

"Daddy." I sniffle as I walk to the bus stop.

"Where are you honey? What's wrong?"

"Daddy I need you. I need you to pick me up."

"Of course darling."


My dad doesn't give me any shit or any 'I told you so' about it. He just listens lovingly and forgives me for this whole mess…


I tell my dad everything.

Sneaking out.

Calum's place.

Falling asleep, waking up and Ashton being there.

Ashton taking me to his apartment.

Ashton and I fighting.


The motel.

The walk back to Ashton's place.

Ashton cheating…

And our goodbye's.


"Goodbye forever?"

"Goodbye for now."


I clarify to my dad. Me and him sit on my bed in silence, everyone is out and I wait for my dad to tell me everything is going to be okay.


"What do I do daddy?" I cry, he wraps his strong arms around me and brushes my hair back.

"Sh… It's okay, everything will be okay." Dad backs away from me and tucks a piece of hair behind my hair.

Like Ashton does…




Like Ashton did.


My subconscious corrects.


"Men are stupid, Eve. That's life." My dad says.

"You don't think it was because of his age?"

"No. Of course not. If Ashton was 15 I don't think it would've made a difference." He admits.

Dad sighs.

"I've actually realized that Eve. That it doesn't matter, that he would've been the same guy whether he was 15 years old or 32 years old." He says with a chuckle.

"And you'll always be the same girl." He smiles affectionately at me.

"You both just need time. Give it time."


"Thank you daddy." I hug him.


"Anytime princess."
