Tori was slightly disoriented, as she woke up next to Ashton. She wondered if that's how Kelly felt when she woke up next to Luke for the first time. She got up and was surprised to find the trailer empty except for her and Ash who was still sound asleep. She went to the bathroom before he woke up, so that she could wash her face and fix her hair enough that she could get it into a ponytail at least. She ran her fingers through the rats nest a few times before she flipped her hair upside down. She grabbed her dirty blonde locks and pulled them into a high ponytail. She heard a knock on the bathroom door.
The bathroom door was locked, so out of instinct, Ash knocked on the door.
"One second" a girls voice said. Ash had forgotten that Tori stayed the night. There was a toilet flush and the sink turned on.
"It's okay. Take your time." Ash didn't want to rush her.
The bathroom door opened. There stood an even more gorgeous girl. More gorgeous than the Tori he had met the night before. This Tori wasn't trying as hard. Ash suddenly forgot that he had to pee, and he pulled her into a nice long kiss.
She pulled away “Ash, you have morning breath...”
“So do you...”
“Yeah, but I can’t help that, I don’t have a toothbrush.”
“We might just have to fix that.” Ash laughed.
He disappeared into the bathroom.
In the ten minutes since he went in there, the shower water had been turned on and off. Finally the door opened and Ash appeared wrapped in a white towel embroidered with ASH xx in red on the towel.
“Sorry, I umm, forgot something out here.” He was blushing too. Tori couldn’t tell what was causing him to blush, the fact the she couldn’t stop smiling at the sight of him shirtless, or if he was actually embarrassed.
He stood there for a moment and ran towards the back of the bus, where there was four drawers. He grabbed a pair of red and white American Apparel underwear, and walked slowly and casually back into the bathroom.
Tori went and sat on the couch in the back and covered up with the cheetah printed blanket that was on the back, she started thinking how much she would miss Ash after he left on Friday.
“Tori? Tori where are you?” Ash called out shocked by the lack of her presence near the bathroom door.
“I’m in the back,” her voiced cracked, and she had tears in her eyes.
Ash came running from the front, where he was looking for her. “What’s wrong?” Tori didn’t mean to make Ash worry.
“Nothing. I’m Fine.”
“Tori, What’s wrong? How stupid do you think I am?”
“Not very, ‘cos you asked again.”
He sat down and pulled her onto his lap. She cuddled her head into the crook of his neck.
“Please tell me what’s wrong.”
“I don’t want you to leave on Friday.” She told him. She wiped a tear away that broke through and rolled down her cheek. She hoped Ash hadn’t noticed.
“Hey, don’t cry.” he said kissing the top of her head. “I don’t really want to leave either. But I’ve got to go home. But I will be back soon you know.” he tried to smile, when in reality he didn’t really want to go and leave Tori here. He wanted her to come with him, but he knew that couldn’t happen, and if he didn’t go now, it would be months before he could go back again.
“Ash, I know. but that won’t make me miss you any less.”
“Tori, please don’t cry, you can cry on Friday, but not before then okay?”
They both smiled as he wiped away her tears.
