100. Career Day
"Dad. So tomorrow we can bring our parents to school, and I was wondering if you can come." Ashton said. "I would love to come." I replied. He smiled. "Okay. So, you have to drive me to school, and stay with me the whole day." He said. "Okay. What do you want for dinner? Mum will be late tonight. She got held up at work." I said. "Pizza!" He yelled. "Did I hear pizza!" Calum yelled. "No you asshole!" I yelled, Ashton laughed.
"Luke! Wake up! You have to take Ashton to school!" Skylar said shaking me. I rubbed my eyes. "Dad! Come on!" Ashton yelled. I jumped up and got ready. "Alright. I'm ready." I said. "Okay so dad, please don't embarrass me." Ashton said in the car. "I know." I said. "I gave grandma the exact same speech when I was your age." I said. "But that was like one hundred years ago." He said. "No. It was only 20 years ago. Actually, that makes me sound old." I replied. He nodded.
"Alright. Next we have Ashton Hemmings and his dad, Luke Hemmings." The teacher said. The girls gasped. "This is my dad, Luke Hemmings. He is in a band called 5 seconds of summer with my uncles." Ashton said. "Mr. Hemmings, tell us what it's like to do what you do." The teacher said. "It's harder than people realize actually. I barely have time off. I get followed my fans and reporters everyday. But it's also fun, because, I get to go around the world with my best friends, and have the time of my life." I said. "Does anyone have any questions for Ashton or his dad?" The teacher asked. "Lucy go ahead." The teacher said. "Ashton are you ever nervous or scared when you get followed around by people?" She asked. "Yeah. All the time. But my mum and dad are next to me, so it's not so scary." He said. I smiled. "Wendy, go ahead." The teacher said. "Why is your last name Hemmings, but Ashton's moms last name is Williams?" She asked. "Ashton's mom and I aren't yet married." I replied. "Alright. Thank you to all the parents who showed up. You may no go home." The teacher said. "Come on dad." Ashton said. "Dad, are you and mum ever going to get married?" He asked. "Of course. Just not right now." I replied.
When we got home, Skylar's car was in the drive way. "Dad why is mum home?" He asked. "I have no idea." I replied.
"Hey." Skylar said. "Hi. Is everything okay?" I asked. "Yeah why?" She replied. "You're home early mom. You're never home early." Ashton said. "Yeah. Liz wasn't feeling well, so I brought her home from school." She said. "Oh. Okay." I replied.
