“Ashton, can I please have a picture” someone screamed
Ashton takes pictures with everyone who asked him of one. He comes across the dark haired girl from the Park earlier, she is standing behind a table with what appears to be a bunch of inanimate objects, he walks up to the table to get a closer look.
“Can I offer you a Luke Hemmings tissue?”
“No, that’s okay.”
“What about... an Ashton Irwin Bandanna?”
“I never owned that bandanna, he said holding up a pink and blue peace sign bandanna. “Where do you get the stuff?”
“Wait, what do you mean YOU never owned that bandanna?” Ash saw Luke and Kelly from the corner of his eye, Luke was refusing to take picture with fans and he was running. 2 things luke hated to do.
“Ash, it’s Tori.”
“What do you mean? What happened?"
“No time to talk” Luke said back
“she is by the back entrance. Run!” Kelly finished for Luke.
Luke and Kelly, stayed behind to answer questions, and trying not to start any rumors.
“Who’s Tori?” Someone asked.
“My best friend,” Kelly answered without thinking.
“Well who are you?” Someone else yelled.
“She’s Kelly, she’s my girlfriend,” Luke said looking at Kelly making sure that it was okay to say that.
“Why? She isn’t even pretty. She’s actually kinda ugly.” Someone shouted from the front row.
“I should have sent you with Ash, I should have known they would be like this,” Luke whispered in her ear, “Will you please forgive me?” Kelly nodded in response, still trying to take everything in.
“Where’s Calum?” some guy in the back shouted.
“He’s getting ready for the show, which will start as soon as I get the all clear from Ash and my mum.”
“Where is Ash?” a girl in the front with a black “I prefer the drummer” tee-shirt asked.
“He’s with Tori.” Kelly responded automatically.
“Is Tori his girlfriend?” The same girl asked.
“We don’t know. They left around two hours and we found Tori maybe 20 minutes ago.” Kelly answered that for Luke. “ And no one worry, Ash didn’t do anything to her. It was me. I was playing tag with Luke and it was dark backstage. I ran into her and she fell and hit her head.” nobody was screaming or asking questions now, Kelly got their attention, once they realized that someone that the boys cared about was hurt. “Calum said that she’s going to be okay, but we have a doctor coming anyways.”
“Tori! Oh my effing God! What happened?” Ash said as he was sitting down next to her. Tori turned her head away from him. She was still crying and she had the most god-awful headache from the mix of the crying and hitting her head, but no matter what she couldn’t stop the tears from falling. Ashton didn’t care that she was mad at him, he just wanted her to be okay. He pulled her into his embrace. he untied his bandanna, pulled it off, and placed it over the cut on her head.
“Ow ow ow ow ow ow! Ash that hurts.”
“I know, but we have to make this stop bleeding.”
“I’m going to go check on Luke and Kelly,” Calum said feeling awkward.
“I’m coming with you…” Mikey, quickly followed Calum, Ashton chuckled at that.
“I’ll go wait for the doctor, out in front.” Liz Hemmings, said not long after the other two boys left. Normally she wouldn’t leave one of the boys alone with a girl, but she knew that they wouldn’t be doing anything they weren’t supposed to be, not with half of that relationship, (if that even was a relationship) Bleeding and not talking to Ash.
“Tori, please forgive me. Okay. Better today than Thursday. Better today than tomorrow.” Ash begged Tori for her forgiveness, he didn’t know her well enough to know if she was one to easily forgive others, or if he’d have to work hard for it. He decided that even if she did forgive easily he’d work for it, even after she forgave him, he should have told her before he kissed her, but if he had told her, she probably wouldn’t have kissed him, and he needed that kiss.”
“I already have.” Tori whispered.
“Seriously.” I forgave you right after I ran through that door. and I started keeping track of how many times I would have to forgive you, when you didn’t follow me. You knew that if you followed me it would be worse didn’t you?”
“Yeah, I did.” Ash sighed relieved.
She leaned back and rested her head on his shoulder. and they stayed like this until they heard Liz saying, “She’s in here.”
