5. chapter 5

It's been a couple of weeks since I last talked to Luke.

 

I have isolated myself from the glade and just kept my mind on the important thing.

 

But once in a while, my mind would fly over to Luke.

 

I couldn't help but think of what he had said.

 

Should I believe him or should I not?

 

This is really confusing and frustrating.

 

Anyway, I approach Ashton. "Hey Ashton."

 

This is one of my first interaction with the glade.

 

Ashton looks surprised when I spoke to him. "Um. Hi Aileen!"

 

"Do you know where Luke is?" I ask, my hands fidgeting.

 

"Actually no." Replies Ashton, a sympathetic smile smears on his lips. "Probably in his shack or something."

 

"Do you think, that I'm the Aileen that Luke loved?" I say.

 

"Loves, not loved." Ashton corrects me. "Luke is still very much in love with her."

 

I nod awkwardly. "So do think I'm the Aileen?"

 

Ashton's sigh is audible. "Yes, I do think that. You look exactly identical and have the same sweet personality."

 

"Oh."

 

"I'm sorry if I made you uncomfortable." Ashton weakly smiles at me and I gaze away.

 

"No. It's fine."

 

Ashton takes a glimpse of me. "If you say so, remember I'll be there if you need me."

 

"Thank you."

Strolling up to Calum, I hide under the curtains of hair.

 

"Hello Calum." I say.

 

Calum whips over to me. "Aileen?"

 

"Can I ask you a question?" I ask Calum, looking at him in the eyes.

 

"You just did!" Calum says, trying to lift the tension.

 

Instead, an awkward atmosphere surrounds us. "So I was wondering but do you find me, in anyway like or exactly the same as Aileen."

 

"Aileen?" Calum repeats. "Like the old one."

 

"Yes."

 

"In a way, everything about you matches Aileen." Calum replies, tentatively.

 

"Like what?"

 

"Besides your appearance being exactly the same, I'll say just about everything." Calum sums up with a grin.

 

"Well, that's very specific." I mutter, sarcasm lacing my words.

 

Calum releases a small laugh. "Why you asking?"

 

"Well," I trail off. "I was thinking about Luke`s words, and, I just want everyone`s opinions before I make a decision on what to do next,"

 

"Smart." Calum states.

 

"I guess."

 

Calum pats my back, sympathetically. "Go ask Michael now."

 

"Going now," I say. "Bye Calum."

 

"Bye."

"Hey Aileen," Michael slowly lets out, as if the words were in his mouth, waiting to spill out.

 

"Hi Michael," I shyly smile. "Can I ask you a question?"

 

"Sure, fire away."

 

"Do you think I, in any way, like the previous Aileen?" I hesitantly say.

 

"Well," Michael stretches out the word. "Can I say everything?"

 

I sigh. "Guess Luke was right, I am Aileen."

 

'Cheer up, it`s the past," Michael beams at me. "You`re a diffrent person now, no matter what in the past." 

 

His words plaster a smile on my lips. "Thank you Mike,"

 

"No worries," 

 

Now Luke to confront...
