A Promise

Emily never been the prettiest or the coolest especially compared to her older brother Ashton, but what happens when she makes a promise she might not be able to keep?

1. You never asked

I look in the mirror and frown at my reflection. Same blonde hair, green eyes, and full lips as always, but what's so wrong with me? Acne, weight, and my older brother, Ashton, that's what. Ashton is really sweet and kind, but he has a band and gets all the attention, plus every guy I like either has a girlfriend, doesn't like me, or is terrified of Ash and his friends.

 

"Emily get out of there!" my mom yells. I turn down my radio which plays One Direction's new album Midnight Memories. Ashton or Mom starts beating on my door. I huff loudly. I hear Ashton  in his room singing one of my favorite songs, Ordinary People. I hear him talking to someone. I should mess with him. So I walk out of my room and go to Ashton's. As soon as I hear the note that starts the song, I sing.

Girl I'm in love with you
 This ain't the honeymoon
 Past the infatuation phase
 Right in the thick of love
 At times we get sick of love
 It seems like we argue everyday

I know I misbehaved
 And you made your mistakes
 And we both still got room left to grow
 And though love sometimes hurts
 I still put you first
 And we'll make this thing work
 But I think we should take it slow


We're just ordinary people
 We don't know which way to go
 Cuz we're ordinary people
 Maybe we should take it slow 
 This time we'll take it slow 
 This time we'll take it slow

This ain't a movie no
 No fairy tale conclusion ya'll
 It gets more confusing everyday
 Sometimes it's heaven sent
 Then we head back to hell again
 We kiss and we make up on the way

I hang up you call
 We rise and we fall
 And we feel like just walking away
 As our love advances
 We take second chances
 Though it's not a fantasy
 I still want you to stay

We're just ordinary people
 We don't know which way to go
 Cuz we're ordinary people
 Maybe we should take it slow 
 This time we'll take it slow
 This time we'll take it slow

 Take it slow
 Maybe we'll live and learn
 Maybe we'll crash and burn
 Maybe you'll stay, maybe you'll leave,
 maybe you'll return
 Maybe another fight
 Maybe we won't survive
 But maybe we'll grow
 We never know baby you and I

We're just ordinary people
 We don't know which way to go
 Cuz we're ordinary people
 Maybe we should take it slow 
 We're just ordinary people
 We don't know which way to go
 Cuz we're ordinary people
 Maybe we should take it slow
 This time we'll take it slow 
 This time we'll take it slow

By the time I'm done singing I notice Ashton's jaw hanging down. I laugh loudly. He shakes his head in disbelief and says, "I didn't know you could sing."

I walk over to his door and before leaving I say, "You never asked."
