I woke up to Ashton opening my curtains letting in the bright light of the outside world.
I groaned and I heard a little chuckle come from across the room.
A little smile ran on my face. I turned my body to face the mattress, with my face laying on the pillow. My arms were resting up against the bed, making room for me to breath.
Yet again, I heard an Ashton laugh. Then I felt his weight on my bed. My eyes were closed, and I was smiling like an idiot. I was just waiting for it to come.
As if on cue, Ash started tickling me. Of course I was laughing my ass off. I was laughing so much that Ash was as well.
Of course Piper and the rest of the boys had to walk in at that time.
I wonder how it must've looked. Ashton's hands were around my torso, while I was straddling Ash. I couldn't care less about the rest of them, I was just staring at Ashton's hazel's eyes. If I could label him as anything, it would be an angel.
"Mack?" I heard Calum say. His sudden voice broke me from my stare.
"Um..." I say.
"Did you even hear what I said?" Cal asks me. Everyone was looking at me. I was soon reminded of my high school talent show.
"I gotta go," I say quickly my anxiety kicking in. I run off my bed and through the crowd. I start making my way to the bathroom.
"Mack, wait! Mackenzie!" Piper calls after me.
I ignore her. When I got into the bathroom, I locked the door. I sit on the ground in a ball, breathing heavily. I start to curl into a ball. I heard someone pounding on the door.
"Mack! Open up please!" I hear Piper's worried voice.
"Mackenzie! Are you okay?!" I hear Ash yell worry evident in his voice.
I just sit curled in a ball, silently sobbing. Well, I thought it was silently. The pounding stopped. I suddenly feel two sets of arms wrap around me. I look up to see Ash and Piper holding me close. I just start to sob more.
"Mack? How are you holding up?" Piper asks me.
"Terribly," I manage to mutter tiredly.
"Its alright love," Ash mutters to me.
I sigh and lean into Ash. Piper gets up and walks out of the room. She soon returns with my anxiety medication and a cuppa. She walks over and hands them to me. I slowly take the pill. After I once again lean into Ashton. i brought the cup to my lips.
"Feeling better?" Piper asks me.
"A little," I mumble.
"Good. I'll be in the lounge if you need me," she says.
After Piper left I cuddled into Ash. He wrapped his strong arms around me.
"Want to talk about it?" Ash whispered.
I shook my head slowly. He sighed and nodded in understanding.
"I'll tell you sometime...." I mumbled quietly but loud enough for him to hear me. He held me closer to him, I dug my face into his sweet smelling chest.
After a while of us just sitting there like that I decided it was time to get up. As I stood up Ashton follows suit. I stretch and walk out of the bathroom. As we walk into the lounge the boys run up to us and start asking questions like; Are you alright?, What happened in there? I just stand there, and look at them. Finally Piper and Ash got them away and stopped talking.
"Lads, she needs some space!" Piper says breathing heavily.
Michael and Calum give me apologetic looks. I return it with a smile. I turn to see Luke rubbing Piper's back. He looks up at me with a worried face. I give him a confused look. Piper indicates she needs her inhaler. I realize what's happening. I rush up stairs to her room and search her desk for it. I soon found the inhaler. I trip as I run down the stairs. Once I am down stairs I rush over to her and hand her it to her quickly.She takes it great fully and takes a few puffs.
"Thanks Mackenzie," she says great fully.
I sigh in relief. Michael and Calum rush over to her and wrap her in bear hugs. Luke and Ash just stand off to the side watching with smiles on their faces. I go and stand next to them.
"What's with the grins?" I whisper to them.
At the same time they whisper excitedly:
"Michael likes Piper!"
"Calum likes Piper!"
I look at them in shock. I turn to look at the other two boys and my best friend. I just stare at them.
"Seriously?!" I screech.
Everyone in the room jumps and looks at me in shock. My shock turns into me grinning like and idjit.
"Mack, what the hell?! You scared the crap out of me!" Piper yells clutching her chest.
I just laugh and apologize to everyone.
The day went like all the others. I left for work, I cooked food for the lads before they had leave, I cleaned part of the house, watched Supernatural and Doctor Who on Netflix. When Piper got back from work we had a marathon of Doctor Who and Supernatural.
"Interesting day," I sigh as I cuddle with a blanket on the couch.
"Yup. Sad that the boys had to leave though," Piper sighs sadly.
All of sudden my phone starts vibrating. I look at the caller ID to see that it's 'Ashy-poo' I quickly answer the phone.
"Hello?" I say into the phone.
"Ashton loves you!" a drunk Calum yells into the phone.
After that was said the line went dead. I brought the phone from my ear and stared at it.
"It was Calum. But he called from Ashton's phone," I say in a shocked state. Then my phone rings again.
I slowly pick it up, and turn it to show the caller ID.
Unknown. Who can this be?
"Mackenzie!" I heard an Aussie voice as soon as I hit accept.
"Luke?" I ask. In the background I heard Ashton yell, "Stop calling her!"
"I love you!" Luke called out.
"What?" I ask confusion clear in my voice.
"No!" Michael's and Ashton's voices are heard.
"What's going on?" Piper asks, showing as much confusion as me. I shrug.
"Ashton loves you!" Mikey screams, then the line in cut off.
I sit there with my phone pressed up against my ear. Confusion fogging my brain, also a hint of hope.
Hope? I thought. Why hope?
Then it hit me.
Hope because I have a shot with him. Hearing his best friends say that Ashton loves me, more than once. That means something, right?
"Mackenzie!" Piper's voice cuts through my thoughts.
"I'm sorry I.... zoned out. What'd you say?" I apologized.
"I said, 'What happened with them?' you seriously didn't hear me. What were you even thinking about?" she asks me.
"Don't tell anyone, but I was thinking about Ashton. Don't tell!" I say with my index finger pointing at her.
"That's cute! I won't tell anyone," she says smiling.
"Pinky promise?" I say, with my right pinky finger out.
"Pinky promise," she repeats, wrapping her left finger around mine.
"Come on, lets go pack," she says breaking out of our pinky promise.
"Pack for what?" I ask.
"Australia. Remember?" she says.
"Oh yeah," I say.
We went off to the garage to pick up boxes. Once we grabbed the many boxes, we both split them up. Half for her half for me.
I walked into my British flag room. I looked around at my room and smiled. I started to pack up all of the stuff I'm going to ship to the 5sos house. After a while I heard music blasting in the room over. I look over at my tripod and idea popped into my head. I took the camera off of the tripod and sneaked over to Piper's room.
I cracked the door open to see Piper doing weird shit around her room. I turned on the camera and pressed record. I aimed the camera in her direction. I recorded her doing random shit for almost an hour.
