Okay so I hope this is longer then usual....
I'm doing this before school so I'm kinda in a rush....
School sucks. I hate it with a passion.
I've got to go to my dad's tonight then I'm coming home Saturday night cause I've got to go and babysit Sunday and jeez I need a break.
Okay love you guys!!
He pushes me into a closed room and I stumble, grabbing on to Luke so I don't fall and he grabs my arm so I also don't fall.
"Shit you okay? I didn't mean to push you." He says quickly.
I chuckle softly. I step away fixing my shirt. "I'm fine. What did you a want to talk to me about?"
"What? O-oh right. That." He says rubbing his hands together. "Well, just wondering when do you have to be at work tomorrow?"
I raise an eyebrow. "Why do you care? And I've got school first." I say leaning against the far wall.
"Like I said, just wondering and what time does school start?" He says.
I roll my eyes. "8:45." Is all I say before making my way towards the door but he grabs my arm pulling me back so I'm against how chest.
He narrows his eyes down at me. "Don't walk away when I'm talking to you."
"Watch me." I say before trying to get away but he keeps his strong hold on me. "Let me go asshole."
All of a sudden his hand comes in contact with my cheek again. I gasp as my hand goes to my even more bruised cheek.
"Hey, don't make me slap you again, cause I will." He snaps quickly and my eyes go wide along with his. "Shit I didn't mean it- Thorn no wait!"
I break out of his hold and rush out of the room leaving Luke calling after me.
I rush down the stairs holding my cheek. I go towards the door to leave but someone grabs me and I flinch away from them.
"Hey, hey. Whoa it's just me." I look up to see Michael looking worried and his eyes go to my cheek that's being covered by my hand.
"Is your cheek hurting again?" He asks just as Ashton comes from the kitchen.
He looks up from his phone and frowns walking over to us.
"What happened? I thought you were talking with Luke." I flinch away as Ashton reaches out to touch me.
He furrows his eyebrows. He then slowly takes my hand off my cheek as his and Michael's eyes widen.
"Shit, what happened? I thought it was getting better, not worse." Ashton breathes out and he wipes my cheek.
Huh, I guess I'm crying.
Someone comes down the stairs and all our eyes go to Luke and I meet his blue eyes and my gaze goes to the ground.
"Luke." Ashton's voice is hard. I look up again to see Ashton with his arms crossed and Luke looks at his hands. I hide behind Ashton, no offence Michael but Ashton's stronger.
He then looks at me and steps towards me making me hide more behind Ashton who looks confused and worried.
"Thorn," he says and I just bite my lip. "don't go.... Please."
Ashton looks at me confused.
I glare at him. "Why, so you can slap me for a third time?" I snap and Ashton snaps his head back at Luke and I feel Michael tense behind me.
"Wait, don't you mean second-" Ashton cuts Michael off.
"You asshole. You slapped her again didn't you? That's why she's got an even bigger bruise." Ashton accuses Luke who goes pale.
"What's going on? Shit your cheek looks worse then before. Did you hit it off something else?" Calum comes in and his eyes go right to my cheek.
He comes over and stops once he sees both Michael and Ashton glaring at Luke. "What's going on...."
Ashton looks from like to Calum. "Ask Luke."
Calum looks confused but looks at Luke anyway. "Luke,"
The blonde look down at his feet. "Nothing Cal."
"Bullshit nothing." Ashton sneers. "Do you wanna a tell him or do you want me to do the honours?"
"Calum why was her cheek bruised before?" Michael asks sighing.
Calum furrows his eyebrows. "Luke slapped her."
Ashton gives him a look and his eyes widen while looking at Luke again.
"Y-you. Why? What good of hitting her will come to you in anyway?" He says shaking his head while crossing his arms over his graphic shirt.
"I didn't mean to-"
"But you meant it the first time?" Ashton buts in.
"No, not at all! I would never hit a girl!" Luke says and my eyes widen. "Shit, I meant your a girl. It's just I've grown up to know not to hit women." He tells us and I scoff.
"My cheek begs to differ."
"Thorn, I'm sorry. I really am." He takes a step towards me but Michael steps more in front of me.
"Don't even think about it Luke." He says glaring at the blonde that's now standing on the last step of the stairs.
Luke sighs. "It's late, I'm going to bed." He says shaking his head before going back up stairs and I'm guessing to his room.
I let out a sigh of relief knowing that he's gone to bed and won't slap me anymore.
Why did I let him get away with it to begin with? God I'm such a fucking wuss.
"Hey don't cry, does your cheek hurt more?" Michael asks turning to face me which makes the other two boys look at me to.
I nod my head slowly. "Yeah. It hurts. But that's not the whole reason I'm crying." I tell them wiping my cheek but grimacing as I touch the spot I've been hit. Twice.
"C'mon we should get more ice on it." Calum says walking back into the kitchen as Michael leads me over to the couch.
I sit down as more tears come to my eyes making him frown. "Hey, it's okay. It's just a bruise, nothing big. I just don't know why Luke is acting like this... He's never done any of this before." Michael says and I wipe under my eyes.
Calum comes back with an ice pack and hands it to me wrapped in a towel. I smile thanks and put it against my cheek, sighing as some of the pain goes away.
"Someone has to talk to Luke about this." Ashton speaks up.
We all look at him.
"Like, ask him why he's being like this." He says and we nod our heads. Well, everyone but me because well, I'm not talking to Luke.
"I'll do it." Calum says. Then adds, "Tomorrow. Luke's right about one thing, it is late."
I look at the time and notice he's right. It's 11:37pm and I've got school.
"Where am I going to sleep?" I ask as a yawn takes over.
"I don't want you sleeping on the couch. So you can have my bed and I'll have the couch tonight." Michael says and I shake my head.
"Fuck no. It's your bed not mine, plus I'm only here for the night." I say crossing my arms over my chest narrowing my eyes at the brightly coloured boy.
"How about you share the bed? There's an idea!" Calum says sarcastically then rolls his eyes yawning.
"That's not a bad idea. It shuts you both up so we can sleep." Ashton says and I glare at him while he gives me a sheepish grin.
"I don't care I'm tired." I say stretching my arms over my head.
"Okay come on, let's go." Michael says motioning me to follow him up the stairs. The other boys following behind us as they shut off everything.
I follow Michael into his room and he shuts the door and locks it then takes his shirt off before yawning again.
He looks at me then hits him self on the forehead. "Shit forgot you need clothes to sleep in." He says shaking his head at himself as he rushes over to his dresser and goes through a bunch of drawers before pulling out a long shirt and a pair of boxers.
He hands them to me blushing and I take them going into the bathroom.
I change out of my shirt- I'm keeping my bra on- and I slip in Michael's much bigger shirt and I narrow my eyes as it doesn't stay up and keeps falling off my shoulders and almost half way down my arm. And it comes down mid thigh. Jeez I'm small compared to them.
I change into his boxers as I wrap my clothes into a ball. I take my purple hair out of the tight ponytail and sigh as I feel my head not so tense.
I walk out of the bathroom to see Michael on the edge of his bed on his phone.
He hears me come out and takes a double take at me before clearing his throat. "D-do you want a bag or something? For your clothes I mean." He says and I nod my head.
"That would be helpful." I tell him and he quickly gets up and motions for me to follow him. I do so and we go back down stairs as he goes over to a cabinet and grabs out a plastic bag and hands it to me.
I put my clothes in there and tie the bag up. "Here can you take these upstairs please, I'm just gonna get a drink." I ask him and he nods his head quickly taking the bag and rushing up the stairs.
Well okay then.
I walk over to the counter and take a cup from the drying rack and fill it with water.
"Holy shit you scared me." A voice says making me jump and almost drop the glass.
I turn to see Calum leaning against the wall holding his chest.
"Sorry. Didn't mean to scare you. Just getting a drink." I say holding up the cup.
He chuckles then eyes my outfit. "Nice fashion choice."
I roll my eyes taking another sip of my drink. I finish it and place it in the sink. "Yeah well I'm just sleeping, not like I'm going anywhere."
He nod his head. "True."
"Well I'm off to bed." I tell him and he nods again.
"Night Thorn." He whispers.
I smile at him. "Night Calum."
I go back up the stairs and into Michael's room. He's just scrolling through his phone, most likely on Twitter.
He hears me come in and smiles. "Turn the light off to yeah?" He asks me I nod my head.
"Sure just let me plug my dead phone in first." I tell him chuckling.
I plug it in and it shows that it's charging. Good stupid phone.
I walk back over and turn the light off so the rooms pitch black and I almost fall but catch myself.
I hear Michael muffle a laugh and I glare in the direction I heard it. "Shut up Michael."
"I'm sorry. Here." I feel someone-Michael obviously- grab my hand and pull me forward so I'm now back on the bed.
"Thanks." I say to him and he just hums.
I curl up under the blanket and I yawn. "Hey Michael?"
"Sorry if I'm latched on to you at all.... I'm a bit of a cuddler." I say before drifting off to sleep, not really hearing Michael's response.
