"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.


3. Luke, Calum, and Michael, oh my

I arrive back at my house and run up to my room. "Hi, Audrey. Hi Hanna." I greet the maids that work for my dad. They're some of the nicest people I'll ever meet.

"Miss Connor, welcome back." Hanna says. "How was school."

I enter my room and flop onto my bed, "It was the same as always." I answer.

"Well, I believe your father just pulled into the garage, so I best be leaving you now." She states as she exits the doorway.

I hear the complaints of my dad boom through the walls of the house as he storms upstairs. I was only twenty pages into "Little Woman" when he took the book out of my hand.

"Connor, what did I tell you about reading books?"

I roll my eyes and reply. "They should only be read for school purposes." I monotone.

"Correct. Now I know you're thinking I'm a terrible father. Well, sweetheart, I'm not. I'm raising you my own way and how to deal with the real world."

I roll my eyes. I'm too scared to say something back to him, for it could lead to something bad.

He throws the book on the ground and leaves my room. "I'm going to the club now. I'll be back at one. You're working after school tomorrow." The door slams behind him.

I slump on my bed. I was suppose to work at the library after school! If you don't know what my dad does which no one does, here it is. After my mom died, he went back to his cunning selfish self and had his mind set on money. He bought an old burlesque club in the outskirts of town so every night he deals with strippers and drunk guys.

But once I turned sixteen, he thought it would be nice to try and make me become one of those dancers. Like, fuck no!! I told him off, but he wasn't taking it. In the end, I ended up as waitress. But every night, guys ask me if I was single and they try to get into my pants!

I grab my book and set it on my nightstand. I then grab my laptop and open Facebook. I notice a friend of mine, Calum, is online. So I Facebook Message him.

Connor Watson: Hey. How's it going?

Calum Hood: bleh. Hemmings and Clifford are over.

Connor Watson: can you tell Luke that I have his library book with me and he can pick it up at my locker tomorrow.

Calum Hood: sure. You're still friends with Marlee, right?

Connor Watson: Marlee and I are still BFFs. Why?

Calum Hood: I want to hook her and Luke up.

Connor Watson: and why????

Calum Hood: because I can! I hooked Michael and Amber up! Hold on, I'm inviting Michael to the convo.

Connor Watson: why not Luke?

Calum Hood: because we talked about him in this.

(Michael Clifford has joined the conversation)

Connor Watson: Hey, Michael.

Michael Clifford: Hey, Watson.

Calum Hood: So Luke just told me that while at the library, he saw Irwin.

Michael Clifford: that shitface.

Connor Watson: who is this Irwin person?

Calum Hood: hey this is Luke I stole Calum's phone because I know his password plus he's in the bathroom. But Irwin; Ashton Irwin. Total badass of the school. He's always skipping classes and breaking equipments and stuff. You would think he would be sleeping around with girls, but he has a girlfriend Amy Grace. One time I heard them in the bathroom doing something. Alright, Calum is coming back from the restroom I'll be back. And what was said about me and Marlee?

Michael Clifford: What? Who's this Marlee person?

Calum Hood: okay, I'm back. So there we go with who is Ashton Irwin. And LUKE YOU ARE SO GONNA GET THIS!!!!!

Connor Watson: you know he can't see this.

Calum Hood: hold on.

(Luke Hemmings has joined the conversation)

Connor Watson: why the duck?

Connor Watson: *fuck?

Luke Hemmings: alright, what is this about me and Marlee?!?


Connor Watson: I'm outa here. You guys settle this yourselves. See y'all tomorrow at school.

I exit out of the conversation.

I spend the rest of my night doing homework and reading some more of "Little Women".

I may seem anti-social at school, but I have a reason.
