It was about 7pm when we all finished unpacking. It was just starting to get dark out so we decided on having a bonfire. Louis and I couldn't get the fire started so we had to have Autumn and Jamie do it.. Pathetic I know.
We gathered around the fire, I sat on a log next to Ashley with only the heat of the fire keeping us all warm. It was silent.. We were all just listening to peaceful sound of the night.
"We should sleep outside tonight!" Louis random blurted out breaking the silence.
There was a mixture of 'Yeah's' and 'No's' from everyone except for Autumn, who didn't say a word.
"Hey Autumn, I'll give you $100 if you sleep out here by yourself tonight." Zayn dared with laughter behind his voice.
"Make it $200." Autumn smirked.
"Hmm..." Zayn contemplated. "Deal." He finally replied.
"Get ready to give me 200 dollars." She chuckled.
"But.. You have to sleep on the ground and you only get one pillow." Zayn smirked back at her.
"Alright. That's nothing.. But if I get attacked by a bear and die I'm haunting you." She stood with her arms crossed. I could tell she was doubting it.. But only I'd be able to tell. Not even Emma or Jamie could tell her feelings like me. I've studied her.. I know every little thing about her.
"Alright! Lets go inside, kids." Liam joked getting up and walking inside with the rest of us following him.
We walked inside leaving Autumn out with nothing but a pillow. Harry went in the kitchen and started making tacos while we all gathered at the table.
"I'm starving!" Ashley groaned. I smiled to myself knowing that I love girls with big appetites.
"Get yourself together. It's almost done." Harry laughed.
After waiting a couple more minutes, just like Harry said, the tacos were done and we all piled them up on our plates.
"Should we take Autumn some?" Emma asked.
"Nope, she's gotta be by herself!" Replied Zayn.
After we finished eating and talking it was pretty late. I went up to my bedroom and took everything off but my boxers. I climbed into my bed. I wonder what Autumn's doing right now.. Probably freezing cold and hungry..
I was brought out of my thoughts again to my door creaking open. It was dark in my room so I couldn't see who it was.
"Can I stay with you tonight?" A soft voice spoke. I could see their shadow next to the bed.
"Ashley?" I questioned.
"Yeah.." She whispered pulling the covers up and laying down next to me.
It was silent a little bit before she fell asleep leaving me to my thoughts once again.
I sat on the dock with my legs hanging over the edge. The lake was calm except for the occasional fish splashing in the water. I'm literally bored out of my mind and to admit I'm a little scared.. Yeah I'm a wimp, I know.
I heard leaves ruffling behind me and I turned around to come face to face with.. Niall.
"Hey.." He whispered.
"Are you- uh- Are you okay?" Niall asked.
"Yeah.. I'm fine. Just bored."
"You can go back to your girlfriend now. You don't have to be out here."
"Ashley? She's not my girlfriend.."
"Well you two are perfect for each other. You should give her a chance." I spoke staring out across the lake.
"How do you know?? Maybe I don't want to give her a chance." He spoke harshly.
I didn't reply I just sat there not wanting to start an argument again.
"I'm sorry.." He mumbled.
"Why does one of us always start a fight..?" I sighed.
"I don't know.. I don't wanna fight."
"It doesn't matter cause after this weekend I'm moving.."
"Moving where? Is it that house you always said you liked a couple blocks from-"
"No, Niall." I said cutting him off. "Back to the states."
