After ten minutes of the doctor examining Tori. “Okay, guys, you really have no reason to worry, she has a mild concussion, and she’s not going to need stitches, but I will glue it back together, and in three week I will check it again. Other than that, I don’t advise you to be jumping around and running around. but other than that you should be okay.” The doctor said. “Any questions?”
“Yeah, would she be okay to fly?” Ashton asked.
“yeah, In a couple of days. Just don’t go putting her on a plane today or tomorrow, but she needs to be here to get her head checked out in a couple of weeks.”
“But we leave for Australia on Friday.” Ash said. Tori,Luke, Michael, Liz and Calum looked at him. Kelly looked at Luke intensely.
“Dude! No one said you can bring your new girlfriend to Australia with us! You just met her.” Luke, Calum, and Mikey said.
“Wait, wait, wait! Luke you leave on Friday?” Kelly was definitely upset, mostly angry but hurt also.
“Hey, everyone, hello! I’m sitting on the floor right now, can we discuss who’s leaving on friday and who’s not. because I’m ready to get this thing patched up.” Tori managed to get everyone to laugh, even though she had just dried her own tears not long ago.
Within five minutes, everyone was standing up and laughing except Luke who’s Mum pulled him away almost immediately after Tori’s head was glued up. Tori and Ashton walked to the boy’s dressing room. as they approach the door they could hear Liz, yelling at Luke.
“You can’t just meet a girl and kiss her in less than 24 hours. You can’t do that, thats toying with her heart.”
“Mum, you don’t understand! I’ve never felt this way about anyone, even though I met her 4 hours ago, I would already risk my life for her. I would stop a bullet from her. I wouldn’t even do that for anyone else mom, not my bandmates, not my brothers, and not you. Kelly is the only person I would do that for.” Luke was doing his best not to yell, because he knew if he yelled, it would just make everything worse. “Mum, I know that you don’t like me having a girl that I care about,” he was calm now, “but, I really like Kelly and there is nothing you can do about it, because you can’t change feelings, you can’t make me not want to be with her.”
“I’ll see you after the show, mum.”
“How are you so good at this, Ash? Have you had a lot of practice?”
“I live with 4 guys, we all get pretty good at it.” a few minutes before Tori had totally forgotten they were eavesdropping on Luke and his mom. Ash made sure that they weren’t caught…
“Even though we are all good at it, we still don’t want to be caught, because this is always good blackmail to use when you want them to do something for you.”
They were tucked behind a corner about ten feet from the door to the dressing room, no one was around and Ash had his arms wrapped around her. She turned around to look at him, her hands rested on his arms, he leaned over and kissed her. This one was different from the one earlier in the park, no one was around, it was just them and the dark hallway, and “Oh My GOD! Guys seriously!?” Luke said. Tori pulled away, Ash would have kept kissing, but she now felt uncomfortable. “You need to get ready, we need to go… we are already running late,” Luke wouldn’t look at Tori.”Because somebody had an accident.” he still wouldn’t look at her.
“Okay, Luke, I’m going…” Ashton said as he was walked to the dressing room, Tori began to follow him.
“Tori, wait up!" Luke called after her.
