"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.


25. chance encounter

Hey guys I'm so sorry I haven't been updating! School has gotten me and I've been scheduling for my senior year and has gotten to me. Plus I'm also very much brain dead on this story so this is my filler chapter but I hope you guys enjoy!


"So you never had sex?"


"Never French kissed?"


"Never been fingered?"

"Ashton why are you asking me these questions?!"

Yep, this is what I do before I go to the club after school at the library on my phone. Talk with Ashton about my nonexistent sex life.

Except this is the first time he ever asked me anything about it. He knows that I'm a virgin. I guess this is just his way of teasing me.


"Because I'm your friend. And I'm allowed to ask you strange questions." He answers and I bet he's smirking.

"Like do I masturbate?" I say in a whisper because I'm at the library.

"Do you?"


"Connor," Julie gets my attention, "can you go rearrange the books in the nonfiction section?"

I nod and then hang up without telling Ashton I was leaving because I'm sure that he's going to go on and leave me just listening to him babble. Eh, I'll tell him later.

As I'm arranging the books in the nonfiction area of the library, I feel a tap on my shoulders. I turn around and see that mop of curly hair that I wish would be cut. "Harry, what are you doing here?" I ask.

"I didn't know you have two jobs." He says out loud. Fuck.

I cover his mouth quickly. "No one is to know my other job or my dad will kill me." I practically whisper through my gritted teeth. "If I hear you or Louis or Niall told other people I will come to you in the black of some dead night and I will bring a pointy reckoning!" I threaten.

"Okay, calm down Abigail Williams don't go accusing me for a witch." Harry puts his hands up in surrender. That earned a chuckle from me because of the play reference.

"So do you need help finding anything?" I ask.

"Nope I found what I wanted." He holds up a book. "Reading about Alan Turing."

"Now I heard that was a good book about how Alan was able to figure out enigma and such. And in the movie of how the people helping him run the enigma basically had to choose who lives and who dies." I say. I loved that movie.

"Wait isn't the guy who played Alan-" he starts but I finish for him because I know what he's going to say.

"The same guy who was Khan in Star Trek and is Sherlock in BBC's Sherlock? Yes I knew it was Benedict Cumberbatch." I answer.

"Stop being such a smartass." He pushes me. I laugh and then check the clock.

"Hey I got to get going. I got to finish organizing these books then clock out to go somewhere else." I say with a wink and an eye roll. He knows what the wink was for, but not the eye roll.

"Okay. See ya soon." He goes to check out.

That's when Ashton calls back again as I finish organizing.

"What now, Irwin?"

"Want to get breakfast with me tomorrow?"

Wait, what did he say?

"Wait, breakfast?" I ask putting the phone between my ear and my shoulder grabbing a book just to look at.

"Yeah. You know, hang out. Not as in a date though. But my mom came up with the idea by saying 'take Connor out on a breakfast date' and I blushed and said were just friends." He said and I chuckled. "So what do you say?"

Without hesitation like when he asked about going to a Giants game, I answered. "Sure. Pick me up at 9:30 tomorrow."
