"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.


14. Do I have to spend time with you?

I walk down the sciences hall to my AP Chemistry classroom. On the way there, I hear someone say, "Connor!" I turned around and see a girl standing by a locker that must be hers. She had a "2014 Lady Eagles Basketball" t-shirt on with a pair of jean shorts and tennis shoes. Her dirty blonde hair was thrown into a side braid.

It took me a while to remember it was Ashton's sister, Nicole.

It also took me a while to remember that the sciences hall is also the sophomore hallway. 

Go me.

"Hey Nicole." I say just right outside the door of my Chemistry classroom as some of my classmates walk in. 

"So the craziest thing just happened today!" Nicole had excitement in her eyes. 

"Can you ask me later? I got to get to class." I begin to walk in, but she said whatever she was going to say.

"Ashton went to Calculus today!" 

I stare at her blankly.

"And that's crazy, why?" I ask.

"Because he never goes to Calculus! He always skipped it to be with Regina George but now that they are splitsville thank god he sees no reason to skip it anymore." She looks at the clock and notices the bell for next period rings in a minute. "Oh shit I got to go to U.S. History see ya later!" And she takes off.

I chuckle and enter the Chemistry room just as the bell rings.

"Hey Watson, who were you talking to outside the classroom?" Luke asked as I walk up to our lab bench. 

"Ashton's sister, Nicole Irwin. Sweet kid." I put on my goggles and apron on for today was a lab day. 

Luke smirks. "So how are you and Ashton?"

My eyes widen. "Ashton and I don't even have anything going on! The only thing that's going on between us is that we are doing the bet." 

"Oh yeah," He states, "Marlee told me about that."

That was when I realized. "By the way what did you want to talk to Marlee about?" I ask.

He goes deep red. "Nothing." It was something. 


I grab my bag from my locker, pull out my phone and see a text.

From: "Ashley" Irwin "you know where I live so just come over soon and we can study ;)"

I roll my eyes and sigh.

To: "Ashley" Irwin "was that winky face intentional? And do I have to spend time with you? Again?"

The messages keep going back and forth.

From: "Ashley" Irwin "well if I want to pass Calc I need to get my grades up."

To: "Ashley" Irwin "I want Chicken Lo Mein and spring rolls."

From: "Ashley" Irwin "wait hold up Watson im not Mark Pi's China Gate."

To: "Ashley" Irwin "If you want me to help you study, you need to pay. For this, it's food. I'm in a Chinese mood so that's my order. And don't forget the duck sauce. I'll be over soon. I got to go I drive."

From: "Ashley" Irwin "do you have work today?"

Fuck! I forgot I got work at the library today and my dad grounded me from going to the library. But sometimes he forgets that I'm grounded so it has to take someone he knows to remind him.

That's when I got a message from him.

From: dad "come home immediately unless you are going to some boy's house. No library, no Marlee."

Wait, did someone at work remind him? Did Hanna remind him?

Wait, I reminded him.

So with that I came up with a lie.

To: dad "I'm going to another friend's house."

From: dad "who's?"

Come on, think!

To: dad "his name is Ashton. We are just going to hang out."

Wait that's not a lie.

That's a fucking truth!

From: dad "use protection sweetie."

Okay, one: he never calls me sweetie. Two: why would I have sex with Ashton Irwin! I barely even know the guy! And we are just studying for Calc!

I roll my eyes and walk to my car. I get in, turn it on, and drive to the library.

Alright so this is my (belated) Christmas gift for you guys. I'm sorry for lacks of updates. I joined Drumline and I'm in pit so yeah my winter is now taken up.

But anyways, hope everyone had an amazing Christmas! I was able to spend time with family on both sides (mom and dad) and I got a lot of cool gifts (I got series two and three of Doctor Who! The revived ones). 

Have a great rest of the week!
