I cringe as I look in the mirror. After that random ass dream last night, I couldn't go back to sleep.
If you want the truth I only remember bits and pieces of it. Blonde hair, penguins and flowers and something about me finally talking.
The voice- Luke, didn't say anything to me and it was nice to have peace and quiet again even if it's just for a little.
I look at the clock and see that I've got to get up in a few hours or so.
I make my way towards my bed and flop face first in it.
"Why the hell are you up so early?" Luke asks me and I roll my eyes.
"Why are you bothering me so early?" I snap back in a groggily voice.
"Oh don't get snappy with me you curly haired nut head. Why are you up? You should be asleep like the rest of the world is. You need the rest Ashton." He says and I can hear the frown in his voice.
"I couldn't get back to sleep." I say shrugging my shoulders.
"Why?" I roll my eyes again.
"Luke it's to early for your questions. And I had a random dream."
"Really? What was it about?" He asks and I roll over on to my back.
"Nothing you'd like." I sigh pulling blankets up to my chin.
I groan and finally give in. "I only remember some stuff. I was in a flower field, and I was with someone and we talked about how they loved penguins and then it went to flowers and me talking." I don't know why I didn't add in the part about the person being a dude having blonde hair.
Might as well add that to. "And the guy had blonde hair."
"Ooh you were dreaming of a guy..... Who likes penguins and has blonde hair in a flowered field?" He asks confusion lacing his voice.
I nod my head but then mentally smack myself because he can't see me. Wait.
"If your just a voice in my head how do you know that I have curly hair when you can't see me?" I ask.
He chuckles. "That doesn't mean I don't know what you look like. I'm in your damn head. I can see everything if I wanted to."
My eyes widen. "What the hell?"
"Ahahaha! Oh your face is priceless! I'd pay to see it in real life!" He says laughing and I can picture him on my bed laughing then falling off and just as fast as it was there it's gone.
I didn't even know hat the guy looked like. But, blonde hair.
My alarm goes off making me jump and fall off my bed.
"Ahahahaha!" He still laughs and I scowl.
"Shut the fuck up Lucifer." I snap.
"Did you just call me Lucifer?" He asks calm down and sounds serious.
"Maybe." I say turning my alarm off and grabbing some clothes. "Yeah know. This is the most I've talked in over two years."
"Well I'm glad I could help." He says and I roll my eyes again.
I walk into the shower and wash my hair and body. Who do I know that has blonde hair? Well, Michael's an actual blonde but I wouldn't talk to him. And if he was in a dream I had then he'd be beating me to a pulp. Not talking about flowers and penguins.
I try really hard to remember what he looked like but I can't even remember if I looked at his face properly or not.
I shake my head and step out, drying off and throwing on my sweater and ripped black skinny jeans.
I go down the stairs and into the kitchen to find my mum making a cup of coffee.
She looks up and gives me a confused smile. "Morning love. Going to eat anything?"
"Yes, eat something Ashton." Luke tells me in a stern voice.
I sigh. "Sure. I have something light."
"Better then nothing Fletcher." Luke says and I mentally smack him upside the head.
"How do you know my middle name?" I blurt out and my mum gives me a weird look.
"Because I gave birth to you and thought of the middle name? Why are you asking me this random question? Not that I mind I mean, your talking to me so that's a start." My mum says grinning as she takes a sip from her cup of coffee.
I nod my head.
"Because I know stuff." Luke answers me.
I bite my cheek as I take a plum out of our fruit bowl and nibble on it silently.
"That's not a good enough answer." I whisper so my mum can't hear me.
"Well that's all I'm gonna say right now....... Ask me again when the time is right." He says and I silently groan as he snickers.
"Hate you." I mumble after I throw away what's left of my plum.
I go back up stairs and grab my bag and everything I'll need for the day.
I check my phone and see a random number texted me. I furrow my eyebrows.
I read. "Hey, don't ask how I got your number and please don't block it."
The first person who pops into my head is Calum as I groan in annoyance. Fuck how'd he get my number?
What if Michael gets a hold of it- wait. No Michael still has my number if I remember right. I didn't change it either.
You'd think that he'd use that to his advantage.....
"Go away." I type back.
Right away I get a respond. "I'm sorry for what happened the other day."
"Leave me alone Calum. You blew it already." I type back.
I don't get a response and I sigh. Good leave me alone.
I go back down stairs and my mum gives me an even more confused look. "Ashton honey. Where are you going?"
I blink. "School?" I say but it comes out more of a question.
She lightly chuckles. "It's Saturday sweetie."
My eyes go wide and I face palm. Of cores it is.
I take my shoes off and slowly go back up the stairs. I fall backwards on my bed and I feel my phone buzz again but ignore it. It's just Calum.
I don't want anything to do with him.
After a couple more times of it going off, I just turn my phone off completely not even glancing at the messages.
I close my eyes and sigh into my pillow.
"I'm going to help you in anyway possible Ashton. I promise." Luke's voice soothes me as I fall back asleep.
I look around and I realize that I'm back at the same field that I was before.
I grin and giggle like the child I really am.
"What the hell are you doing?" A voice asks me and I stop and quickly spin to see Michael leaning against a tree watching me with an amused expression.
"Um." My voice gets stuck in my throat like always when I'm around Michael and his 'friends'.
Michael raises an eyebrow and a look of confusion takes over his face. He pushes off the tree and walks towards me.
I take a few steps back. "What's wrong Ash?"
A bunch of flash backs come back to me all at once when he calls me Ash.
"I-I you. Um." I stutter and wonder why he's not already beating me to a pulp.
"Really Ash what's wrong. You don't look so good." Michael says and he lifts his hand and I flinch away, putting my arms up, tightly shutting my eyes waiting for him to beat me.
I peak an eye open to see Michael with a hurt look. "What?"
I slowly put my arms down. "D-did you really think that I'd hit you Ash?"
I look down and bite my lip. "Ashton I've been your friend forever, why on earth would I hit you?"
I look up. "I don't know honestly. I ask myself the same thing everyday."
He looks confused. He put he hand on my shoulder. He then pulls me in for a hug and I tense which only makes him hug me tighter.
I hesitantly wrap my arms around him and hug him back.
Then a choked sob leaves my body and I hold onto Michael like he's my life line. I cry into his shirt and he rubs my back soothingly.
"Hey hey. It's okay. Even if I ever did hit you- which will never happen- I'd have a good reason to, even though no reason is ever good enough to hit my best friend." Michael says pulling back and wipes my cheeks as more tears go down my face.
I grab his shirt and pull him closer and I burry my face in his chest as he wraps his arms around me again.
"I don't want to lose you Michael. Your my best friend." I whimper and he puts his head on mine.
"Your mine to Ash. Mine to." He mumbles and I close my eyes.
All of a sudden he pulls back and gives me a sad smile before walking away. He turns around and shouts to me, "No matter what Ash, I'll always be with you even if I am being a dick and ruining your life. Your still my best friend."
Then he walks away and out of sight leaving me alone....
I fall to the ground and stare at the spot Michael disappeared.
I feel someone sit beside me and I turn, hoping it's Michael but it's not and I'm slightly disappointed.
"That was emotional." He says with a faint chuckle.
"Why did he have to turn into a dick?" I mumble as more tears fall.
I feel the strangers arms go around and I cry for what felt like the millionth time.
"Hey it's okay love. I'm going to help you in anyway possible Ashton. I promise." I sniffle but then stop everything I'm doing and fully look at the person.
He's got blonde hair and bright blue eyes. He's got a lip ring and his hair is styled in a quiff. Even though he's sitting, he looks tall as fuck.
"Who are you?" I ask slowly. He grins at me and sighs.
He pulls me to his chest again and for some reason I don't reject. I go back and hold on to him tightly.
"Ask me again when the time is right." He tells me and my eyes go wide but I don't move away or anything.
I gulp. "L-Luke?" I ask.
He looks at me and my breath hitches. "Yeah?"
I gasp and he smiles. "It- is it- what? But- your a voice? I- what?" I stutter out and he chuckles.
"Hey to you to Ashton." He says grinning and I just stare in a random tree.
