6. Heartache On The Big Screen
“Ashton I’m sick of you moping about the place, you’re home go see your mates, go see Alexa” Mum threw a pair of my socks she picked up from the floor at my face, grabbing them I threw them back “Mum, she doesn’t want to see me” I flicked through the channels on the TV, “She tell you that did she? No, now get out of my house” groaning I flopped my feet of the sofa before hurdling myself towards my shoes. “Good boy, I love you” She placed a kiss on my cheek before taking my position on the sofa.
Taking out my Iphone I shoved my head phones in and the music started to blare, Lost In The Stereo by All Time Low started to play and my hands began to drum along with the beat. The sun was beaming in the sky which was no surprise for an Australian summer, guys roamed the streets shirtless and girls in bikini tops - I must look like a right twat wearing a black top. We’d been back in Australia for a day and a half now, we had the whole family reunion thing yesterday which was nice but she wasn’t there which sucked but we now have 2 days off before we finish of the tour in our home country.
Ruffling my hair back I wondered where the hell my feet were taking me, “Hi you’re Ashton Irwin aren’t you?” A group of girls had gathered in my path “Hey yeah I guess” I smirked back giving out hugs “Can I get a picture please, I love you so much” The girl blushed at me “Yeah sure” I hooked my arm around her shoulder and smiled into her camera “Well I best be going, I’ll see you girls soon” I smiled before my feet walked into the nearest building. Don’t get me wrong I love the fans, they mean the world to me but sometimes I just need to chill and think. Raising my head from looking at the ground I realised I had just walked into a lawyer firm where Alexa’s mum works. Taking myself to the front desk I stared at the snobby looking receptionist “Hi, can I speak to Mrs S Turner please?” the blonde receptionist looked me up and down obviously judging my ripped jeans “Do you have an appointment?” she backfired “No..” I began “Ashton?” turning to my left there stood Sally, Alexa’s mother.
“What are you doing here? Alexa’s not here” She looked at me concerned. “No, I know, I don’t really know why I’m here to be honest I just walked in, I should go” I started to walk towards the exit before she called me back. “She misses you” I looked up to see her giving me a small smile “I miss her too” I nodded slowly “Go find her, she’s at work” she beamed before taking me in her arms, Sally was like my second mother and nobody supported mine and Alexa’s relationship more than her hugging her back I realised how much I missed her, I missed them.
