I pulled away from the kiss, and just looked at her.
"I'm really happy that we can finally be together."
I said rubbing my hands up and down her back.
She nodded and pulled my mouth back to hers for another quick kiss.
"We should go back. Everyone is probably wondering where we're at."
She told me and I agreed.
When we walked in the room, everyone's head turned to us.
"Are you two alright?"
My mom asked.
Ashleigh said smiling at her.
She said smiling back.
We walked over to the couches and Sam pulled Ashley down next to him and whispered something in her ear.
She just nodded.
Ashley reached her hand out and pulled me down next to her.
"Alright everyone,I'm gonna go catch a cab. I have a plane to catch back to New York."
Sam said standing up.
Ashley immediately stood up.
"You can't leave Sam."
She said, as her voice got quiet.
"I only have so much time I can take off of school. I need to get back. I'm sorry Ashley."
He said pulling her into a hug.
"I thought you knew he had to leave today."
Her mom said standing next to them.
She just shook her head no.
"When am I going to see you again?"
"That's what you did last time I asked you that, and I didn't see you for over six months."
"Ashley, your gonna be in New York in about four months."
"I'll visit again I promise."
He said patting her back.
"Okay fine, but you better. stay safe bub. Love you."
She said giving him a tight squeeze.
He said before saying bye to everyone else. As he was walking past me to leave he bent down and whispered in my ear.
"Keep your promise."
He patted my arm then was out of the room.
I looked over at Ashley... She looked sad.
I grabbed her hand, and pulled her onto my lap.
"Are you alright?"
I asked rubbing her thigh.
She said kissing my cheek.
I watched as Ashley and her mum looked through clothes.
We decided to all come to the mall today, since we have nothing else to do.
"Ohhhhhh, try that on."
My mom said to Ashley as she walked over.
Ashley was holding a strapless dress. The top have was black and the bottom half was pink.
I looked at the dress, before putting it on.
I turned around and looked at myself in the mirror.
It's a pretty dress, but it shows too much cleavage.
"I'm taking it off."
I said to my mom and Liz who were on the other side of the changing room door.
"No, come out first."
Liz said patting on the door.
"But nothing. Just come out."
I heard my mom say.
I sighed and walked out.
"Ooooo you look great in that."
Liz said moving her eyebrows up and down, making me laugh.
"I'll get that one for you."
My mom said, and I shook my head, " no mum, that's alright, I can buy it."
"Fine, then I'll buy you this one. Now go try it on."
She said handing me a peachy colored dress.
I took it and changed into it, hanging the other dress on the hook that was on the wall.
It was more fancy than the other dress. This dress looked like it would be worn to a party, or special
Occasion. The other was more like a summer dress.
I looked at myself in the mirror.
This dress was really low cut, with a black see through fabric on the top part, where my boobs were.
It's not too bad I guess, it is a tad bit shorter than the other one though.
"Come out already."
I heard my mum say with a small sigh
I turned back to the mirror.
My eyes scanned down to the scars on my wrists.
"give me a sec."
I said grabbing my bracelets off of the small chair in the corner, and sliding them onto my arms.
I opened the door and instead of just my mom and Liz standing there, Calum, Luke, Michael, and their mums were all waiting.
I heard Calum say aloud.
Joy smacked his arm then turned to me.
"Wow,you do look great in that dress."
she said smiling.
Oookay, I feel a bit weird just standing here with everyone starring at me.
"Your definitely getting that."
My mum said walking back out with the rest of the mums after they all complimented how nice it looked, which really I don't see it that appealing.
I looked over at Luke who was starring.
"So do you like it?"
I asked him.
"Are you kidding?you look hot."
Michael said leaning against Luke.
He said laughing, as he pushed him off.
He then turned back to me.
"So do 'you' like it?"
I asked again, since Michael answered last time.
"Yea. I really like it."
He said coming closer.
"I'll buy you those two dresses,you look great in them both."
He said pulling me into him.
"No, I'll buy them. And you didn't even see me in the other dress."
I say quickly kissing his lips.
"Your right, I didn't see you in it, but you make everything look beautiful, so I'm pretty sure it looks great on you. And no I I'll buy them."
I laughed and wrapped my arms around his neck, and kissed his cheek.
"Luke, I almost forgot. You said you'd come with us."
Michael's voice said from behind Luke.
"Oh yea, I forgot too."
He said looking back at Michael then back to me.
"Calum and Michael wanted me to go to some store with them. "
He whispered, then gently pressed his lips to mine.
"I'll see you in a little bit."
I went back into the small changing room And changed back into my clothes and grabbed the two dresses, before leaving the room.
I looked around, but didn't see my mom, so I pulled out my phone to text her.
"Hey Hun. Are you ready to check out?"
I looked up and my mom's smiling face was in front of me.
"yup, did find something for yourself?"
I asked as we walked up to the register.
She nodded and set down the things she had in her hand on the counter.
The lady behind the counter was about to scan my things, but stopped and looked up at me.
"That lad Luke who was in here just a minute ago, he was 'your' boyfriend right?"
I said Not sure why she was asking.
"And is this your mom?"
I just nodded, still wondering why does she need to know.
"Oh ok, then your stuff is already paid for. He paid for it before he left."
She said smiling at me then bagging our things.
I looked over at my mum And she just shrugged.
"Here you are, have a great day."
I said grabbing my bag.
"Well that explains why he was looking at all my things, he was checking the prices."
She said while laughing.
We walked out of the store.
"Where is everybody else?"
I asked looking at my mum.
"I'm not sure, we can wait here."
She said sitting down on a bench.
We sat in silence as I looked through some messages on my phone from some friends.
"You should really talk to Ashton, he's really upset. That's why he didn't come with us. "
She said as I set my phone down.
"Him upset?! How do you think I feel. He's kept me from Luke for years, maybe if he hadn't, I would have ended up with Luke instead of Jacob, so I don't wanna hear that he's upset."
I said shaking my head.
"He's your brother, you have to..."
I cut her off
"I don't care if he's my brother,he shouldn't have done that, I don't care if he was 'protecting' me, I'm old enough to take care of myself, and I don't need him telling me what to do anymore, I'm tired of dealing with everyone. I'm not in the mood to talk to him, especially since It just happened. You can't get over things that quickly. he had no right doing what he did."
I said getting upset.
She put her hand on my shoulder, and I brushed it off.
"Your right, I'm sorry for bringing it up."
Right as she finished talking, Michael walked over.
"Hey, do you know where my mum is at?"
"No, where is everyone?"
"Oh, Luke and Calum are in some game store over there."
He said pointing in the direction of the store.
"And Liz and joy are in some jewelry shop across from the game store. My mum might be In there, but i didn't see her, I'll check again."
He said disappearing into the crowd of people.
My mom and I stood up, and went over to the store where Luke and Calum were.
"Hey Luke, I think I'm gonna go back to the hotel. I'll see you there."
I told him kissing his cheek.
"No, I'll come with you."
He said reaching out to grab my hand.
"Oh, no you don't have to. You can stay with the boys if you'd like."
"I've been with them all day. I wanna come with you."
"I told you I'd buy my own dresses Luke."
I said hanging The dresses in the hotel closet.
I looked at him and he just smiled.
He was laying on my bed, and sat up when Ashton walked in.
"Oh, um sorry, i should have knocked. But i just wanted to tell you two that since we don't have any shows for the next couple of days, we're gonna go home."
He said glancing at me before walking out.
He tried talking to me when Luke and I came back about half an hour ago, but I couldn't, it just makes me feel... I don't know, I'm disappointed in him.
He asked sitting up.
I sat next to him and wrapped my arm around his.
"I'm gonna stay."
He looked confused.
"What do you mean?"
"When we go back home. I'm gonna stay."
His smiling face turned into a frown.
"I don't want to be a distraction. I've already been a problem."
I said entangling my fingers with his.
"Your not a distraction. Please come back with us."
"How am I not a distraction. Ashton and I haven't been getting along, and I just don't want anything to get any worse than they are between us. I think me just taking a break away from him will help me forgive him."
"Please Ashley. Stay with me."
He said rubbing his hand up and down my back.
"I don't want things to go bad between us after I finally have you."
He added on, as his look saddened even more than it already was.
"I'll call you, text you, and FaceTime you everyday. Things won't go bad."
I said softly kissing him.
He asked, feeling his hot breath on my lips.
He still looked upset but he kissed me and wrapped his arms around me.
