19. SEVENTEEN

The whole week was spent, playing flag football, girls against boys (Paige played well). They went swimming, scuba diving, had camp fires at night, more booze, movies at the mini theater. Ashley was delighted that the Lambard brothers liked Paige a lot and told him that she was whole different package from the other girls they met. They wanted him to take her with him once more once the Lambard's got family gatherings, Ashley promise he would.

Tara on the other hand, had still been subtly flirting with him and Ashley knows that Paige noticed but she chose to ignore this. There was one night when every one was really drunk including Tara, who suddenly told everyone sitting on the bar in the middle of the pool that she had a one night stand with Ashley.

The group went silent, Denise and Raymond took Tara to their room. Paige played cool and smiled, but she gulped down two bottles of beer and two jaegers. The following day he tried to talk to her about it but she said she was fine and it happened before they started dating. Making love after the incident was different. Paige wasn't the same in bed anymore, she didn't moan as much as she did, didn't call his name every time she cums and she turns her back on him after making love was over. 

They were back in Eastshade on Saturday morning. Ashley told her that he was picking her up for dinner that night but she declined, she said she was having dinner with her family and will be studying for next weeks exam. Something was wrong with her and he's got to find out because the way she was to him now was killing him.

Back at the university on monday Ashley waited for Paige outside her classroom five minutes before the time. When Paige saw him, she smiled and kissed him like nothing ever happened at all. Has she forgotten that she haven't talked to him yesterday no matter how many times he called.

"Is something wrong Paige?" he asked as they walked out of the building.

She looked at him innocently. "What?"

"You suddenly act different," he said worriedly.

Her phone rang.  "Let me answer this first okay?"

He watched as she walked meters away from him before she answered her phone. She was nodding her head and smiling. Dammit! What was going on?! He needs to know, but she was so difficult to reach.

Paige went back to him and said, "What are you concerned about Ashley?" she asked dead serious.

"You aren't the same Paige I've known for the past month. What happened? You suddenly changed at the Lambards." He looked at her, it hurt him that she didn't look into his eyes.

"I don't know, maybe we should take it easy between us. I don't want another heart ache."

"What are you talking about?"

A white car parked in front of the building and honked. Paige turned her head, and the car window opened. 

Matthew!

"What are you doing Paige?" Ashley suddenly felt a burden on his shoulders.

"Matt and I are going to talk. To settle things. I have to go."

"You're kidding right?!" he called to her, but she walked away and jumped into Matthew's car.

Weeks passed it was finally December. He and Paige had still been seeing each other, but they hadn't been making love anymore. That day she went with Matthew, Ashley had been a wreck. He'd cried when she came back home at midnight, he saw Matt dropped her at her apartment, he wanted to go talk to her but he didn't want her to see him cry. The following day, she acted like everything was okay between them, when Ashley's brain on the other hand was racking for answers. What was worse, Matthew had been calling her not too often and she would answer in front of him. How could she even do that? How could she hurt her and ignoring it at the same time?!

"Dude, what's wrong with you?" Caleb asked one day at their class. "You're look like a wreck! You probably got money for a shave right?"

"I just got tired shaving pal," he answered in a bored tone and walked away.

He hadn't been shaving at all. It was really useless when you want to look good for someone who ignores you and hurts you. 

On Friday night, he saw Paige sitting on the bench at the lake as if waiting for someone. If she doesn't want to talk about it then maybe it was time that they stop what they have. He took a deep breath and went to the lake. "Hi," he said.

"Hey," she said startled.

"Expecting someone?" he asked and grit his teeth.

"No one at all."

"Can I sit?"

"Yeah sure."

They sat silent for a while.

"There's something I want to tell you," they said together.

"You go first," he told her.

"No you go first," she said. "I insist."

Sighing, he spoke. "It's really sad that what started out good between us should come to an end."

Her head snapped to him.

He looked into her eyes. 

She gulped.

"I've been wanting to reach out to you Paige, because I have been troubled by your sudden change. But then I realized that maybe we weren't really meant to be together. I think I don't want to have my heart broken but it's to late to say that. Matt... you have always been in love with him, I know you still do. So I'm calling this over so you can be with Matt. I just hoped you should have told me earlier about it. Now I know what it feels to have a broken heart." he smiled painfully at her as a tear dropped form his eyes.

She was looking at him hard. No feelings at all. Congratulations Paige! You just broke Ashley Walker the heart breakers heart!

"Is that all you have to say?" she asked, in an eerily cool voice.

"I think that's it." He nodded his head. He leaned and kissed her one last time. But she didn't respond. Where was that girl who was funny, crazy yet passionate every time they kissed. Ashley leaned his forehead against her forehead and squeezed her hands. "Goodbye Paige," he whispered then went back in his apartment.

Once in his room, he heard Paige's car started and screeched away. She was surely headed into Matthew's arms!
