"Head in the clouds, got no weight on my shoulders"
When I was little, I thought life was perfect. But now, everything is a lie. I face things every single day ever since my mom died. About 80 percent of them involve my dad. He wants me to be something that I'm not, and it's stupid. I can't change myself, but in order to appease to him, I made this compromise with him. This compromise was worse than what he wants me to actually be. I've got 99 problems. But you, Ashton, won't be one.


10. Ashton Powers; International Man of Stupidity

The drive was pretty quiet if you know what I mean. Ashton and I don't really talk much.

"So what were you doing out this late by yourself?" He asks keeping his eyes on the road.

I look out the window of his car. "I got lost." I lie. I hope he believes it because I'm a terrible liar.

"Okay." Was all he said.

I lean back against the seat. "What about you? It's almost ten in the evening on a Saturday night. What do you do on your Saturday nights?"

He takes a deep breath. "I'm either at a party or with Amy." He answers. "But since no one is hosting a party and I just dropped Amy off at her place, I'm heading back home."

We pulled around the corner onto to the street where my development was located, but he drove right passed it. I look over my shoulder and come back facing forward. " just passed my development." I tell him.

He pulls into another development. "Oh, I'm not taking you back to your home. I'm allowing you to spend the night at my house."

Allowing? Spend? I'm? Night? House? My? At?

"Ashton, are you sure? Because we only met Thursday and here you are just giving me a ride to what was suppose to be my house but actually to your house." I exclaim and he pulls into a driveway.

He cuts the engine off. "Well, too late to turn back. Connor, welcome to Casa Del Irwin." I get out of the car and look at the house. It's quite hard to see in the darkness, but I bet it's a nice one.

Ashton walks up to the garage, punches in a code, and the garage door opens. He walks under the door that's going up and I follow behind him. When he reaches the garage door, he turns towards me. "Alright, I'm warning you now. My parents don't like Amy a whole lot so when they see you they might assume you're my new girlfriend. And my younger sister and her friends are having a sleepover so got it?"

I nod showing that I got it. He opens the door and we walk inside.

"Mom, dad, I'm home!" He yells as he takes his shoes off. He looks at me. "You can leave your shoes there." He says pointing at the ground, "And the pantry is right there so you can grab yourself some food." He points to the door in front of me. "Bathroom is next door, the laundry room is behind you, and in front of you is obviously the kitchen." It's almost like he's giving me a tour of the house.

I look to see the doors to the bathroom and the laundry room are closed. Then I turn around and see a beautiful kitchen.

"And then in the family room, we have my annoying little sister and her two annoying friends!" He sounded like he was making some sort of grand entrance as I walk into the family room to see three younger looking girls, but they don't look too young. Two girls had blonde hair (one dirty blonde and the other blonde) and one girl had brown hair.

They all turn to face us, but their eyes widen when they see me. "Wait, you aren't Amy." The brunette states.

"No Marie, this isn't Amy. And this isn't my new girlfriend either." New girlfriend? Did he already break up with Amy? "But Marie, Ann, Nicole, this is someone from school Connor Watson. Connor Watson, this is Marie Leonard, Ann Knapper, and my annoying sister Nicole Irwin." He says pointing at each. Marie was the brunette, Ann was the normal blonde, and Nicole was the dirty blonde. He walks up behind Nicole and hugs her from behind.

"Ashley, don't!" She yells pushing him off. I begin laughing as he walks back next to me.

He looks at me like I'm crazy. "What?"

"Ashley?" I ask. "What the hell is that?"

He rolls his eyes. "A lot of people call me Ash, which can be short for Ashton," he points at himself, "or Ashley. So to annoy me, Nicole has been calling me Ashley for a good year and a half."

I smirk. "Okay, that's hilarious."

"Thank you!" Nicole cheers. "Someone who understands my humor!"

"Alright, we are heading upstairs. Come on, Watson." Ashton grabs my wrist pulling me up the stairs. When we reach the top, I stop.

"Come on, Irwin," I start, "she's your sister. She's suppose to tease you."

"Yeah, but not by calling me a girl name." He huffs. "It's embarrassing as fudge."

I raise an eyebrow. Why did he say "fudge" instead of "fuck"? "My parents are down the hall. They aren't really a fan of me and Nicole cursing, but we do it anyways."

I only had one question on my mind. "How old is Nicole?"

"16. She's a sophomore." He answers without taking a breath. "So how about we head to my room? I promise I won't do anything weird or harming."

I just nod and follow him. When we enter his room, it was a dark blue with a bunch of different posters. Some of video games, and some of different bands. One poster stood out.

"You listen to Panic! At The Disco?" I ask.

"Yeah. Wait, don't tell me you listen to them?"

I laugh and nod. "I never would've thought that Connor Watson, the girl who's nose is always in a book, listens to music." He says. He opens one of his dresser drawers, pulls out a t-shirt, and tosses it to me. "Here. You can wear that."

I give him a confused look as I unfold it. It was a "Ponies Forever" shirt with My Little Pony on it. I start laughing for the second time tonight. "Is it the shirt?" He notices that I'm laughing, but I nod.

"Ashton Irwin, Milson High School badass, has a My Little Pony shirt?!"

"It was in the men's section at Target!" He argues.

"Okay, then." I say as I'm exiting his room. "Where's your bathroom?" I ask.

"Straight ahead, next to Nicole's room." He answers pointing in some weird way.

I exit the room and head to the bathroom. It was a nice one. As I'm changing shorts, I check my phone for new messages.

One from Luke saying that the date went great.

One from Mike saying that he is indeed studying.

And one that make me stop breathing.

My father.


He knows I left earlier than he planned. I'm dead.

I throw on a pair of gym shorts that I carry around in my bag for no apparent reason. I undo the ponytail in my hair, slip off the shirt I was originally wearing, and threw on what I now call the "manly" shirt. I always carry the most bizarre things in my bag because I then brush my teeth with the toothbrush I carry around and wash my face.

I exit the bathroom and head back to Ashton's room.

But then of course when I opened the door, I see him on his bed in some absurd model position.

"Did I make you horny?" He asks while still in that position.

I roll my eyes at the movie reference.

"No, you didn't." I sarcastically answer.

He begins changing positions going "how about now?" "Now?" "Now?" "Am I making you horny now?"

I chuckle a little. "Alright, Austin Powers, you can cut with the act." I set my stuff on the floor. "Is there anywhere I can sleep? Do you have a futon?"

He quickly moves over to the farthest side of the bed. "You can sleep on the other side."

I walk towards the bed. "Okay, how will I know that you won't do anything to me?" I ask concerned.

"I promise I won't do anything to do. I even pinkie swear." He says sticking out his pinkie.

I sigh and we shake pinkies. I undo the covers and hop in the opposite side of the bed. I drape the covers over me and rest my head against the pillow that was provided. "Is this a queen sized or full sized?" I ask wondering.

"Queen." He answers smugly. "What did you think I sleep in? I had sex on this bed a few times."

I roll my eyes and toss around facing away from him. But soon enough, he whispered in my ears. "Shall we shag now or shag later?"

I am now getting irritated, "Never! Goodnight, Ashton or should I say Austin Powers!"

I close my eyes and begin to sleep.

Why did I chose to get a ride with him?

Okay, a few things.

1) I did watch Austin Powers; International Man of Mystery a bunch of times. Love that movie and Mike Myers was hilarious!

2) Thanks Lucy Styles for making the cover! I'm glad I requested it. It looks amazing!

3) This is my last update on any of my stories before band camp. I leave tomorrow and won't be back till Saturday.

So that's it. Thanks for reading and i will see you all again on Saturday!
