I paced back and forth in my bedroom. I was angry at Calum, but more for Ash then me. My attention turned towards the door as it opened up. I crossed my arms as I noticed my mother.
"You knew about the party! I asked you about the party and then you turn around and side with them?!" I shouted in anger.
"Look sweetie when you're an adult you'll understand." She sighed.
"I'm going back over to Ash's." I growled as I grabbed my bag.
"No you're not, you are gro-" She started but I stopped her.
"For what?" I snapped. She didn't say anything so I pushed my way past her and started walking to Ashley's. I would have driven but of course my father took my damn keys. At least this way I could blow off a lot of steam before getting there. When her house did come into view I noticed Ashton was sitting on the porch staring at his feet. He looked like a little hurt puppy.
"Ash..what's wrong?" I asked as I got closer to him. He looked up in surprise. I noticed the tear stained cheeks before he desperately whipped them away.
"Nothing..." He lied as he looked away from me. "Your boyfriend is in Ashley's room. They're watching movies." I could hear the hurt behind his words. Was there something I didn't know? I took a seat and looked up at the stars.
"When I was little I would always ask my mom to tell me the story of the goddess and the mortal." I softly smiled. He turned his head slightly at me. "See there was this noble man who worked hard for everything he got. Now the goddess she got whatever she wanted, no question asked. That was until one day when these two came across each others path. She wanted him, I guess you could say it was love at first sight. But there was a problem, he was just a mere mortal and she was a goddess, there was no way their love could happen. Yet, each day they would meet at that same spot and talk for an hour. Soon he fell in love with her, not the goddess, but who she was deep down. As the years started to unfold he got older as she stayed the wonderful beauty she was when they first met. One day alone in her room she stared out of the window and cried. That's when one of the other gods came to her aid to see why the beautiful woman was so blue. When they learned of what was wrong, though they couldn't turn him into a god, they turned her into a mortal. Once back on earth she ran to their meeting spot to see he was already there. Sadly it was too late. She hugged him and cried until she wilted away herself."
"Was that suppose to cheer me up?" He frowned.
"Let me finish." I narrowed my eyes at him. "Though they couldn't live the rest of their lives together, the gods pitied the poor lovers and turned them into two beautiful cherry blossom trees that intertwine by two branches." I softly smiled.
"So they're still together..." He softly smiled.
"Yes, the moral of the story is to not wait around for something to happen. You have to get up and get it done."
"Why are you telling me this?" He frowned.
"You love her don't you?" I smirked causing him to blush.
"W-what?!" He stuttered.
"Yup I totally hit the nail on that one." I giggled. "Forget about Calum, take charge! Show her you mean business!" I jumped up and extended my hand. As he took it that's when the front door opened.
"What are you guys doing?" Micheal looked at us strangely.
"Inspiring!" I shouted with a big grin that made him chuckle.
"Well come in, it's about to start raining." He said and we nodded.
"What are you doing here? Ashley is grounded." Calum said crossing his arms.
"Yeah and who's fault is that." I stated crossing my arms. There was no way I was about to let him get in my way to see my best friend.
"She can't se-" He started talking but I cut him off.
"No listen here popstar, you nor any of them are gonna keep me from my best friend. I don't care who you think you are. Turning your back on your twin sister like that just shows that you are a sorry excuse for a man. Grow up and maybe you would see what a great person your sister has turned into. Stop getting in the way of her happiness because it's truly pissing me off." I growled as everyone stared at me in shock. After picking his jaw off the ground he hurried to his bedroom in defeat.
"Wow!" Micheal choked out causing me to smile a bit.
"That was amazing!" Ashton said hugging me.
"Wanna watch The Avengers with us since Luke and Ashley are locked away in her room?" Michael asked patting the couch next to him. I looked back towards her bedroom and sadly nodded yes. I truly wanted to cuddle up in the arms of Luke but knew right now it wasn't gonna happen. I sat down next to Michael as he played the movie. He had his arm stretched out behind me on the back of the couch, and weirdly it didn't feel awkward.
As the sun burst through the window I flickered my eyes open to notice I was cuddled up to Michael. I quickly jumped up in a panic. What if Luke came out and saw that? All kinds of scenes ran through my head stressing me out as I started pacing back and forth. That's when I noticed Ashton pacing back and forth in the hall. He was only in his boxers, why? I shook the why out of my head remembering he's a male.
"What's wrong Ashton?" I questioned.
"This." He gently and quietly opened Ashley's door. My heart sank when I saw them cuddle up to each other. Of course I knew it probably happened like Michael and I, right? I shut the door so I didn't have to keep staring at them.
"I'm sure they aren't doing it intentional..." He muttered. "Right?"
"Right! Of course!" I laughed awkwardly.
"What are you guys doing?" We turned our heads to see Michael stretching out as he stood up.
"Nothing!" We both said.
"You guys are horrible liars." He chuckled as he got closer to me. He bent down to my ear before whispering. "Are you okay now?"
"Huh? Yeah I'm fine....?" I looked at him confused.
"You were crying in your sleep last night and when I tried to comfort you, you wrapped your arms around me and cuddled up with me. Then shortly after you stopped crying." He said causing me to blush.
That's when Ashley's bedroom door cracked open and we heard a last part of a conversation.
"No one has to know about this, right?" Ashley asked nervously.
"It'll be our little secret." Luke said.
