4. Chapter 4
Several days had passed, and Ashton had starred in her dreams every night since. They were not good dreams, she always awoke troubled and confused. She had not called him. The card with his number still lay where she had thrown it. She was afraid to touch it, to even look at. She was afraid of what she might do if she ever looked at it again. She was frightened of the way this boy made her feel.
Chrystal went about her life as she usually did. Working harder and seeing her friends more often. Well, the few friends that she did have. She could easily count them on one hand; her closest and most dearest friend being Kelly. Unwillingly, Chrystal told kelly all about the mysterious Ashton Irwin and in response Kelly had arranged a "wild night" out down town. Great, just what I need.
"Dress sexy!" Kelly shouted, throwing a dress over the top of the changing room. This was the seventh dress she had tired on and nothing was making her feel "sexy". She rolled her eyes and took the dress from the top. This one looked promising. It was red and it clung tightly to her curves and showed off how small her waist was. Chrystal couldn't help but smile at her reflection. It was perfect. "This is the one!" She said, ripping back the curtain revealing a shocked Kelly. "Oh sister! You look hot hot hot!" She exclaimed, her brown eyes wide and her red curls bouncing wildly around her face. "You're gonna get all the men tonight- heck even a few girls!" Chrystal giggled and looked once more at her reflection before pulling it off and changing.
Chrystal purchased the dress and her and Kelly linked arms and walked out the dress store, chatting about tonight. She was actually excited now, maybe it would be fun. Heck, I might even get drunk! She felt herself smile, properly smile for the first time in days. She happened to look across the street when she caught sight of a blonde, curled head walking fast in front. She stopped in her tracks. He was broad and tall just like him, his hair could be the same colour. Could it be him? Please don't... Just then the man turned around, it wasn't Ashton. Chrystal heaved a huge sigh and felt a weight lift from her shoulders, but she was oddly disappointed. Odd. "Chrystal! What's wrong!? Hello... Earth to Christie!?" Kelly said, tugging on her arm. "Oh sorry," she stammered, embarrassed, "I thought I saw someone I knew." Kelly narrowed her eyes at her slightly but didn't ask anymore. And that was why she was Chrystals best friend, she never asked a thousand probing questions. Chrystal re-linked arms with her friend and threw herself back into the conversation with forced animation.
Short chapter guys, I don't know if I'm going to even continue with this! Haven't updated in ages 😳 x
