- Graham & Kiley
I walked out of the theater and then out of the school. I don't like this place it's where my life is ruined. I don't know why I feel like this. It's emotions I've never experienced and quite frankly I don't want to have them. I'm running now and I'm in boots.
The wind hitting my face feels great. The leaves are red, brown, purple, pink, yellow, and orange. I ran and kept running. I heard buzzing in my thigh. I stopped running and saw it was Callie. I ignored. Which, yes, was an awful thing to do but I did it anyways.
I was crying a lot. It made no since to me but the tears kept falling.
I found myself on my mothers grave. I was crying because of three things now. One, I didn't understand. Two, for my mom. Three, because she left me.
I've only been here a few times. I just remembered that I buried my hamster Phoebe, and my old dog Juliette, next to my moms grave. She loved Phoebe and Juliette. Juliette had puppies years after my mom died. I had kept one and I still have him. Her name is Eliana after my mom.
It's been about two hours and I've ignored at least 20 calls. I don't want to talk to anyone and I don't want anyone to talk to me.
It's been about three hours since I figured out Sky ran away. I decided it wasn't a good idea to call the police because she hates attention. Also because they'll question her about it all. Sky doesn't like telling people her personal business. Or for that fact... talking.
I have no idea where she is. I almost called my mom. She may know where Sky is.
Callie comes up to me at school today and yells "Sky's missing and I don't know where she is we have to find her now!" All in one breath. "I know Callie. We'll find her."
"OKAY. I'm going to die if we don't find her!!!"
"Callie. Calm down." She mumbled. Then walked away.
I was watching Skyler this morning. I can understand how creepy that may sound. Anyways, yesterday I overheard Calum telling her that Luke wanted to meet her. I heard this because I wanted to check on her.
I walked away angry because I like Skyler. More than I should. Yes. I know. Nobody knows that I like her but my little sister Lauren and brother Harry. Skyler babysat Harry for years. She's friends with Lauren too.
So this morning I decided that I'd go and see what that was all about. I saw her walking from her car with Starbucks. And the perv I am I found myself biting my lip. ASH! NO! Not now.
I got out of my car and walked in the school. Shit, she was beautiful. She's also going to meet my band mate. My curiosity got the best of me and I listened to their conversation. The whole thing. . .
She walked out of the theater crying. I was going to see if she was okay, but she ran away too fast for me to catch her. I figured she wouldn't go far since she wasn't going towards the school exits.
She's still gone. I blame myself.
Where could she be. She may be at her favorite frozen yogurt place. No, probably not. The book store. Possibly. I ran out to my car and drove to the book store.
She wasn't there.
Maybe she's at her flat. I drove there.
"Hey Jack. (The Doorman). Have you seen Skler going through here?"
"Just once this morning. Any reason?"
"No sir. Thank you."
Well great. There's only one more place I can think of.
It's been at least three hours since I left campus. The tears have stopped falling but it feels like they'll keep coming if I move at all.
I herd foot steps nearing. It's probably just someone visiting.
But no. The person came and sat down next to me. I had my head between my knees so I couldn't see who it was.
The person and I sat there in science for about 30 minutes. With that I know it's Ash. He's always the guy I turn to when I need something.
I'm the one to make the first move. I move my head so I'm looking at him. He smiled. The tears started falling again. "Hey, shhhh. Babe it's going to be okay" he whispered as he pulled me into his embrace.
Ash has been working out apparently. Dang. His strong arms around me felt like I had protection. Protection I haven't had in a long long time.
"Would you like to tell me what's going on? You don't have to. Only if you'd like."
My voice came out cracky and squeaky. "I would rather not. I'm sorry."
"No. It's okay love."
It got really cold and I started shivering in his arms. "Hey. You're cold. Hold on." He starts taking his sweater off. Man those arms. No Skyler. What's your deal today.
"No. You don't have to Ash. It's cool. I'm okay."
"Yeah. I don't think so. You're shivering and you're wearing a long sleeve sweater." He puts it around me and pulls me into his embrace again.
"You know Sky, maybe we should get you inside somewhere."
"I don't want to go back. . ."
"I'm not saying school. I can take you to get coffee, to a diner, to your flat, anywhere."
"Ok, well you can take me to get my car and we can go back to my flat. . .? If that's okay with you?"
"Sounds good. Maybe we should tell everyone that you're alive and with me. You know, before they go insane."
We got up, then Ash and I walked to his car. He got out his phone and called Callie. I could hear on her end. She was screaming.
"YOU BETTER HAVE FOUND HER! ASH I SWEAR!!!"
"Don't worry yourself Callie I have her."
"Okay! Oh my gosh. Good. Let her know she's going to have a stern talking to when I get home."
"Yes ma'am. Good by Callie."
I let a giggle escape my mouth. Then followed by coughing.
"You may be getting sick Skyler."
I just groaned and he laughed.
I got out of Ashton's car and got into mine. I put the key in the ignition then I noticed a note on my dashboard.
The note read:
I know It's my fault you ran away today. I drove myself crazy because of it. I can't bare the thought of loosing you. Also know, that I'd spend the rest of my life telling you how truly sorry I am. I hope you know that. ;-)
That note is the nicest thing anyone's ever done for me. It still doesn't change the fact I'm pissed at him. I placed it in my passenger seat and drove to my house.
When I got there Ash was already waiting for me on the couch with Eliana in his lap. I see he still knows where the spare is.
"I'm going to go upstairs and change if that's alright with you...?"
"You're just going to leave me alone in this big flat of yours...?" He said jokingly.
"You can hang out in my room. Just nowhere else." He's such a weirdo. I'm not mad at him anymore. Just maybe a little. But not as much.
I walk up to my room and head to the lavatory.
"Ash. No snooping."
"Of course not." He grins as he takes a seat on my large beanbag and flips on my television.
I walk into my shared bathroom and take a shower. Why does Luke have such an impact on me? Why did what he say have such an impact on me? Does that mean I like him...? Surely not.
I haven't cried so much in my life but today the world started crashing down on me. Even at my mum's funeral. Not one tear was shed.
I get out of the shower and start to dry my body off. I look at my body in the long mirror and point out everything that's wrong. I'm short as heck. I'm really curvy. Everything is wrong with me.
I just realized I forgot to get clothes out of my closet. Crap. My closet is in my room. Just great.
"Ashton...!?" I called.
"Ashton...!?" I called a little louder this time.
I figure he went downstairs to get a snack or something. I walked well speed walked out of the restroom and around the corner.
Suddenly I hit a tall and firm figure. Oh shit. Ashton. I looked up to meet his hazel / green eyes. My cheeks immediately flush.
He backed out of the way blushing. Hehe. He's blushing. Wait why do I think these things?
"I'm so sorry. I heard you call my name and so I came u-."
I cut him off "Ash, it's okay." I gave him a real smile I haven't gave anyone lately. Weird. He gave me a cheeky grin.
"Well, I'm sure you'd like to change now so let me leave you to that."
I just nodded and walked into my room.
I heard a faint "Ashton...!?" Then silence then another "Ashton...!?" So I got up and walked towards the restroom to see if Skyler is alright. As I started walking someone rounded the corner and ran into me. Skyler.
She has on a towel. A small towel at that. She's so beautiful. What would she ever want with me? She looked up and met my gaze. Oh those hazel eyes. I blushed like crazy and her cheeks flushed.
"I'm so sorry. I heard you call my name and so I came u-." She cut me off. "Ash it's okay." She smiled. That smile alone could kill me. I found myself grinning back like a idiot.
"Well, I'm sure you'd like to change now so let me leave you to that." She just nodded and walked by.
Me being the perv I am it took all of my willpower not to stare at her. And luckily I didn't. I think.
I went back to my room and into my closet. That was strange. I change into some shorts, a tee shirt, a cardigan, and my batman slippers. I threw my hair up into a bun and went downstairs.

As I get downstairs Ash is sitting in my living room watching tv with MY ice cream. That's not okay.
"ASHTON IRWIN!" When I said that it came out hoarse but still strict. He looked up alarmed like a sad puppy.

"Yes ma'am." Awww! He's adorable. No. I'm mad. He's eating my ice cream.
"Ashton. That is my ice cream. Care to tell mr why it's going into your mouth?"
"I'm not sure. Would you like some, love?" He says as he holds out a spoon full of ice cream towards me. Why is he so weird?
"Sure..." Jokes on him I'm getting sick. I sat down beside him and ate the ice cream from the spoon.
I grabbed the blanket off the back of the couch and covered up with it. I'm really cold. I'm shivering. Ashton noticed and put his arm around me. I cuddled up to his side. "Thank you" I whispered and drifted off to sleep. The last thing I heard was a faint
"You're beautiful..." I'm sure I just imagined that. Right?
