"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.


12. sleep is (not) very important

I enter my room after dinner and begin to strip my clothes to change into pajamas. All of the sudden, my phone rings. I pick it up and it's Mar. "Hey, what's up?"

"ITHINKIHAVEFEELINGSFORLUKE!"She says quickly that I can't make out what she said.

"Explain what you said to me again but slowly." I say to Marlee while changing into my pajamas.

"I. Think. I. Have. Feelings. For. Luke!"

My jaw drops. "I'm texting you so I don't scream." I hang up before she says anything and I begin texting her.

To: Marlee the Amazing "YOU WHAT?!?!?!"

From: Marlee the Amazing "........ :|"

Marlee has feelings for Luke. Huh. They only went on one date--hell I wouldn't call it a date cuz it was set up by Calum--and she's already developing something for him.

I get another text from Luke whose contact name I changed under his request.

From: Fluke Hemmings "you have Matusak for AP Gov, right?"

To: Fluke Hemmings "yep. Hw was the mock trial of the constitution"

From: Fluke Hemmings "is my contact name now Fluke?"

To: Fluke Hemmings "yep. Anything else you want to ask me?"

I throw on my tank top and shorts when I get a new message.

From: Fluke Hemmings "yes. Do you think Mar likes me? Like as in like like me?"

What the fuck does he want to get out of me?

To: Fluke Hemmings "what is this, second grade?"

From: Fluke Hemmings "well I kind of...had anaerobic respiration during the date tonight."

To: Fluke Hemmings "talk to me about your anaerobic respiration tomorrow during chem. I'm going to bed. Night."

From: Fluke Hemmings "and by going to bed, you're gonna read for three hours. See ya tomorrow I'm gonna text Mike. Night!"

With that, I pick up the nearest book on my nightstand and read until I was getting droopy and I fall asleep.


*buzz! Buzz!*

My phone goes off. I slowly open my eyes and reach over to my nightstand. I check the clock and it's...3:14 in the morning. Haha, Pi.

I grab my phone and open the message.

From: "Ashley" Irwin "I wanna throw you on my bed, strip you down, and make love to you while you leave scratches on my back and scream my name!!"

I roll my eyes.

To: "Ashley" Irwin "okay. One, why are you texting me this late on a school night? Two, I am a virgin. Three, did you mean to say hey?"

He texts me back a few minutes later.

From: "Ashley" Irwin "answers. One: I'm not tired. Two: I probably knew that. Three: yes I did."

To: "Ashley" Irwin "why are you texting me?"

From: "Ashley" Irwin "I need someone to talk to."

To: "Ashley" Irwin "can't we talk tomorrow? I need sleep and it's Monday so just list what you want to talk about and we can talk tomorrow."

But I fell asleep immediately after I sent that text.


I wake up to my alarm and grab my phone. I got a text from Ashton and a text from Marlee.

I look at the text from Ashton first.

From: "Ashley" Irwin "well I'm going to start our bet tomorrow during study hall and I got a detention so I need something to do while Mr. Mat-snooze-ass is grading papers so do you have a book I can borrow? I'll take any children book I can read Magic Tree House.

And I broke up with Amy yesterday. She didn't take it well. It actually happened not as planned cuz i broke up with her while we were having sex. NOT the best way to break up with a girl I learned because she will knee you in the nuts and kick you out of her house butt naked..."

He rambled on about how he got home and he felt like a free man and I didn't really care about how he broke up with her.

I look at the next text from Marlee.

From: Marlee the Amazing "okay, you're picking me up today and we are making a coffee run cuz I didn't get any sleep last night!"

I text her back.

To: Marlee the Amazing "why didn't you get any sleep?"

From: Marlee the Amazing "Regina George herself was texting me."

To: Marlee the Amazing "what did she text you?"

From; Marlee the Amazing "I'll tell you on the way to my coffee!!!!"

I get dressed, go out to my car (after grabbing a donut), and drove to pick up Marlee for her coffee.

I needed some coffee too.
