Every Light in the City (1d/5sos)

It's the oldest story in the world. One day, you're 17 and you're planning for someday. And then quietly, without you ever really noticing, someday is today. And then someday is yesturday. And that is your life. And this is mine.

Hi, I'm Ashton Irwin and honestly I kind of regret running away last year with my friends but I met people who affected my life forever in that year and when I think about that, I don't regret anything.

"Every light in the city is shining for us tonight Ash," he whispered as we stared up into the city that never sleeps. "Just for us."


2. Except Us


I groaned and rolled off my bed with a loud thump.

When I opened my eyes, my best friend's face was inches from mine.

"Last day of school mate," said Calum with a grin.

"Can you believe it Ash." I heard Niall's voice float into the room.

"Is the gang here?" I asked while standing up.

I got my answer when I saw all the 2 teen boys sat on my bed.

"Yeah," said Louis. "And it's about time you get up tosser."

I flipped him off.

"Give me a few minutes to get ready."

"You get 2," replied Louis.

"10" I argued.



"All right. Come on Lou," called Calum as he pulled the blue eyed boy out of the room.

The rest of them followed him and Niall shut the door behind them.

It only took me about 6 minutes to shower and get dressed even with all the shouting and laughter coming from downstairs.

"We're leaving mum," I yelled at her as we walked out the door.

"Bye sweetheart."

"Are we walking today?" I questioned, I noticed the lack of cars in front of my house.

"Last day of school Ash," said Niall. "There's no point."

We walked down the street talking nonsense that made sense to us and annoying the people we passed by with our loud singing.

"I'm having regrets." I groaned.

"About what?" asked Cal.

"Waking up early."

Niall laughed and shoved my shoulder.

"You've said that every school morning this entire year" he said.

"And I've meant it every single time."

Soon, we had reached the school and I was seconds away from walking back home when I saw it.

"All right lads," called Louis. "We will all meet up later after school at the hill."

He and Niall walked into the crowd of hormonal students.

"Can you believe that next year, it'll just be us," exclaimed Calum.

Niall and Louis are graduating this year and heading to different colleges. Niall to Stanford and Louis to Yale.

We'd be separated after spending years as best friends.

"No Cal. I can't." I grumbled as we stepped into the high school.

"Get out. Get out. Take a shower. Get out. Stop making out, that's disgusting. Move you fucking sloth. Get out of my way. Oh my, I hate you," shouted Louis.

Niall shook his head and smiled at Louis's insults.

Years later, and he's still dealing with the same Lou.

"I hate these people Ni" he muttered. "Thats one thing I won't miss about this place. The hallways."

Niall nodded his head.

"I don't think I'll miss anything honestly," he replied.

Louis shrugged and kept quiet as they made their way out of the school and down the oh-so familiar path.

"Except us," said Lou.

Niall glanced up at him and slowly slid his hand into Louis's.

"Except us," he agreed.
