"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.


31. Walrus

University of Alabama. 

That's the college Ashton wants to go to for four years of college. 

Within the last two weeks of dating, we definitely did grow as friends, Ashton and I. And also as a couple. We obviously didn't have time to celebrate our first Christmas as a couple together because the day we started dating was three days before Christmas. But he did get me a present. And I was shocked on how he got it. 

It was Girl Online by Zoë Sugg. It was also signed by Zoë herself. 

How did I know? It said "To Connor" in it. 

I just got him a baseball. Because he does love baseball. 

On New Years, we all had a big party and we kissed at midnight. That felt really good. 

But now school is back in session, and so is my father. 

I don't have to worry about a stupid bet that I made back in October and wonder how Ashton will react to the Percy Jackson movie. 

But all I know is that in five months, I will leave this hellhole. 

My schedule was cut down to only Saturday with working at the club, because dad realized that I'm now dating "this fucker who made a stupid choice on a girlfriend" (his words). Like he doesn't get to decide who I date. 

Back to University of Alabama. 

No I don't want to go there. Ashton just gave me his sweatshirt that says that. I was also wearing it today on the first day back to school. 

So walking into the school when I arrived at my locker, I opened it to see a little note fall out. I picked it up and put it in my pocket. Thank god I didn't reach in my locker because my hand would've broken.


Amy Grace's accomplice, Sienna Pakon, slammed my locker closed. 

"Listen here, Watson." She said with anger in her voice. "Stay away from Ashton."

"Did Amelia tell you to say that?" I retaliate, saying Amy's real name Amelia. 

"Don't you dare call her by her real name."

"Why? It's the one on her birth certificate." I smirk and walk away. She didn't go after me. 

That was when Marlee ran up to me.

"Con we need to talk. Like now." She pulled me into the girls bathroom. 

"What happened?!" I asked now a bit worried. 

"Luke wants to do it with me." Wait what?

"Mar, what do you mean?" Wait. 

"Like...the walrus sings at midnight do it." She whispers. I cover my mouth. "But I don't know...what if I'm not ready."

"You will be ready." I place my hands on her shoulders. "You're Marlee Olsen. You're one of the strongest person I know." Well second strongest. No offense, but my mom will always be first. 

"Girl, you're stronger than me." She looked around to make sure no one was in here. Then she said in a whisper. "You work at a club and you stand up to what you believe in with your ass of a father." 

I look down and smile a bit. It's not everyday one calls me strong for that reason that Mar just talked about. Well, not everyone knows about my real situation except for my friends. 

Wait, my own boyfriend doesn't know. Fuck shit balls. What if he found out? Double fuck shit balls.

I take a deep breath then turn the sink on in the bathroom and splash my face with water. "Mar. Foundation." I hold out my hand knowing she has foundation in her bag. She hands it to me and I reapply it. 

"What?" She asked concerned as I give her foundation back. 

"Ashton." I say blending in the foundation as we both don't have the same kind and I pray I don't break out.

It takes her a moment to understand what I was talking about.  "Are you going to tell him?" I shake my head no. 

"I shouldn't have even told you and the others because of reasons I can't say but..." I sigh. "This is my boyfriend. I know I shouldn't keep secrets but this is for the good of him." I state and we totally forgot about time as the bell rang signifying five minutes until class starts. Damn.  So we get out of the bathroom and go to class. 

Little did I know later that night I'd get a text from Luke's phone.

From Marlee.

Saying these exact words.

"The walrus sings at midnight! ~M"

I finally found some idea for a chapter!! I've been listening to a lot of Melanie Martinez and having the Hamilton soundtrack on repeat. 

I'm Hamiltrash okay?! 

So my last ever band camp is next week and I'm excited and sad at the same time!!! Agh!! Okay I got to go to sleep because it's 1:25 am here.
