Close As Strangers.

I love him, I do. I love him with every ounce of my body, I’m just tired. Tired of pretending that I’m okay and that I’m happy for him because, I’m not. I’m not happy for him and I’m certainly not okay.
Could you live without the love of your life for 6 months straight?.


11. Kiss Me Kiss Me

-Alexa’s POV-

“Are you annoyed with me?” Luke questioned giving me a look that said ‘forgive me’ “No, yeah.. I don’t know Luke. I’m flattered that you think I’m good enough to open for One Direction but yes because you didn’t tell me” I ran my hands through my hair. “It was supposed to be a good surprise” He gave me half of a smile while Harry just sat there silently “Yeah, nah” I let out a little laugh “Well you have a year to think about it” Harry offered “And I’d think about it carefully, it’s a once in a life time opportunity Alexa it could open so many doors for you, You will have to audition but that means nothing it is deffo your job if you want it” both Harry and Luke nodded. Luke excused himself with another phone call leaving me and Harry alone.

“It’s good to finally put a face to a name” Harry stated, I smiled towards the floor losing some confidence now Luke had left “Ashton and Luke don’t stop talking about you” Ashton. Whenever I start to forget, I remember and it’s like a stab in the heart again and again. “All good things I hope” I smiled slightly “Only the best, all true as well” Harry smirked “What’s that supposed to mean?” I blushed gaining little confidence “You are beautiful” He grinned making me blush bright red “I guess what the media writes about you is all true as well?” I smiled, His eyebrows rose “What’s that supposed to mean?” He questioned back. “You are charming” I grinned and he laughed along with me. “I can tell we’re going to get on well already Alexa” the way his deep British accent said my name sent shivers down my spine, Luke joined my side once again sliding his phone into his pocket “Sorry that was Michael” He grinned, “What did he want?” They’re literally apart from each other for 24 hours and calling one another telling them they miss each other. That’s one thing I love about these boys. “Asking me where I am, he’ll probably turn up in a bit” He chuckled and just like that there was a knock at the door, Luke’s eyebrows rose and so did his body “I’ll get it” both me and Harry laughed.

“So if you had to give an answer right now would you say yes or no?” Harry questioned while Luke spoke to whoever was at the door. Rubbing my face I weighed out the issues I had. “Probably not” I laughed “I’d probably say no too” He laughed with me. I noticed the bigger dimples on his cheeks which made me smile bigger, when he stopped and his eyebrows rose and he nodded towards the door I knew something was up. Turning my head I look at the figure in the doorway.

“Hi” he smirked.

He stood with a black Rolling Stone T-shirt on, not a great choice for a hot day like today. His out of control hair pinned back with a red bandana. “Hi” I swallowed the lump in my throat. It took everything in me not to rise from my seat and grab him in my arms. “Well this is awkward” Harry chuckled while getting up from his seat to drag Luke away from the room. Ashton made his way to sit next to me, I sat staring at the floor not knowing where to look.

“Cards out on the table?” Ashton always used to use that question when I had something on my mind. I nodded towards him finally looking up. “I hate seeing you with Luke because you should be with me” I looked into his eyes for the first time in 6 months and so desperately wanted to kiss his lips but anger boiled inside of me “Seeing me with Luke? With Luke? I’m not with Luke like I was with you. I’m his mate, he actually turned up to see me unlike you Ashton.” I began to rise from my seat to leave “Alexa..” Ashton pulled my arm back “You know I didn’t mean it like that, and I did try to see you, your mum said you were at work but you weren’t you were with him” he pulled me closer so I was inches away from him I inhaled his scent automatically memorised by it. “I love you” His lips traced my ear making me shiver “I love you too” I was trying to be stubborn so it came out less than a whisper “What was that?” the smirk on his lips grew as his fingertips chased the side of my face leaving goosebumps in its wake. “I love you too” I said slightly louder this time “Didn’t quite catch that” he pressed his lips to my cheek leaving tender kisses along my jaw, I let out a moan “You’re pushing your luck Irwin” I murmured into his shoulder “Eh a boy can try?” a little laugh left his lips and He lifted my chin so I was staring into his eyes. His face got closer and closer to mine before a smile etched onto his face, standing on my tiptoes I closed the distance until his lips connected with mine and all of a sudden ever doubt left my mind. His hand reached around my face cupping my cheeks and my hands roamed around his hair tugging the ends deepening the kiss with every second. When his lips finally left mine, I felt incomplete.

A cough for the doorway interrupted our reunion, turning to Luke he looked smug “That’s a tenner you owe me Styles” Luke stuffed the apple that he was holding in his hand in his mouth  “Whaaaaaat Alexa you disappoint me” Harry smacked Luke around the head before sitting down like nothing happened. “You know I was joking, I didn’t actually bet Luke” Harry tried to justify “Said every single loser ever” Luke continued to eat his apple while we all laughed, Ashton placed his hands on my hips pulling me down to sit on his lap and protectively wrapping his arms around my waist “We still need to talk about stuff” I whispered quietly just so Ash could hear “I know” he gave a weak smile, I just wanted to savour this moment forever I was securely in the arms of the individual that I want to spend forever with.

 “That’s $30 you owe me now” Luke counted the times him and Harry had made bets “Well you owe me $20 Luke” I stated “Well technically I don’t, Harry owes you $20 and me $10” Luke tried worming his way out of his debts. “Awesome Harry Styles owes me money!” I turned my freak out mode on again leaving everyone laughing “Mate, I don’t owe no one nothing” Harry backfired in his extremely British accent which made me smile “Hey Luke don’t you owe me like $35?” Ashton spoke for the first time from behind my head “Bet you wish you hadn’t said anything now” Harry let out a laugh, “Hey are you coming to the gig on Thursday Alex?” Luke stated changing the subject completely “Way to change the subject” Ashton said aloud as if he was reading my mind “I guess I could, I mean if you guys want me there?” I always hate the thought of being somewhere where I’m really not wanted “Are you kidding me? You’re coming and on Friday” Harry laughed “Yeah, you’re coming if you want to or not” Ashton chuckled in my ear “Shit’s going to get nasty on Friday” Harry referred to the end of the tour.
