Here's the next chapter!
I hope you like this so far. I really like writing this story a lot...
Love you guys!
My mouth goes dry and I look at Calum who looks shocked and he scratches the back of his neck awkwardly. "Well shit." He whispers to himself.
Michael smirks and crosses his arms. "We get to hang outside of school to Asshton. How great is that?"
I open and close my mouth like a fish out of water. It's like I forgot what breathing was. "I-I." I clamp my mouth shut.
There's no use talking it'll just make things worse. I should know.
"You, you what? Oh wait you don't talk." Michael says rolling his eyes and scowls at me.
I talked before you turned into a dickwad. Like I'd ever actually say that to him.
"Hey Calum? I'm leaving right now and Mali's gone to a friends for the night. Have fun! Be back later!" We all hear Calum's mum yell and the door shut.
Michael turns to me with an evil grin. Well fuck.
"Didn't see this one coming......" The voice says. I try to block it out.
I seriously don't have the time for this.
Calum looks lost and he looks at me and I see the apology in his eyes and I feel my heart sink.
"Grab him." Michael says and they all lunge for me- all but Calum- as I take two stairs at a time trying so hard to get up the stars so they don't get me.
I'm about to reach the top when I feel someone pull me in the back of my shirt and I fall back down the stairs. I cover my head the way down and I hear the mocking laughter of Michael and his two idiot friends.
I feel the burning in my sides start and the stinging in my eyes from the tears. I close my eyes tightly as I feel someone lift me up on both my sides.
I slowly open my eyes and come face to face with the divil himself.
He looks at Calum and I follow his gaze. "Punch him."
Calum's eyes widen as he looks at Michael like he just told him to kick a kitten with steel toe boots with spikes on it.
"W-what?" Calum squeaks out.
Michael smirks at Calum. "Did I stutter?"
Calum's face pales even more, if that was even possible. He hesitantly walks up to me, Michael watching his every move like a hawk.
"I want to tell you that he won't do it but. I think that's clarified as lying....." The voice says and I can hear the frown in it.
"I'm sorry." He mouths and I close my eyes as his fist comes in contact with my stomach. Hard.
I groan and Michael chuckles. "Again. Keep doing it till I say stop."
So he does. Again. Again. And again.
I feel like I weigh 100 pounds more then I did before. I gasp for air that I desperately need.
"I guess you can stop. Don't want him dead, what fun would that be?" Michael finally says and Tony and Chris drop me to the hard cement floor.
I fall to the ground with gasp in pain when I move to my right a little bit.
"I want to help you, I really do.... You have no idea how much Ashton. This hurts me to."
I start coughing and spit up blood. I slowly wipe my mouth.
I need to get out of here. Now. Not that I didn't need to get out of here before but, you get what I mean.
I go to stand up but fall back down again which makes them laugh harder at me.
After a couple moments of them laughing at me and calling me names that I've heard so many times they all leave me, including Calum.
I close my eyes and just lay there.
Why me? What did I ever do to bring this all on me?
"Nothing Ashton. You did nothing. People are just self centred jerkoffs."
I roll my eyes at the inner voice. "Yeah right. I must have done something." I mumble to myself, well to the voice.
"Ooh! You talked to me! I could die happy now! Put this on the calendar!"
"Shut up your giving me a headache." I groan grabbing my head but gasping in pain at the quick movement.
"Sorry. We'll talk later when your not practically dying on the basement floor of your friends house."
I scowl at nothing, well the voice but it's kinda hard when he's just a voice.
"He's not friend." I snap.
I hear the door open up stairs and feet coming towards the stairs. My eyes widen and I hide behind a giant box of something that's close to me.
I bite my lip to keep from screaming in pain and I hear someone sigh before walking away.
I let out a breath and I slowly stand my self up, with the help of the shit around me.
I walk slowly over to the stairs and up them. I gasp a couple times but I finally make it to the top.
I hear a gasp and I turn around to see Mr. Hood gawking at me.
"Ashton sweetie, what happened?" She asks rushing over to me and I force a fake smile.
"You know, if you tell her I'm sure she can help."
"Nothing to worry about Mrs. Hood," I'm use to it. "I just, kinda, you know fell down the stairs when we were going to go to the mall. I told the others to go ahead without me."
I really need to stop lying.
She looks really worried and concerned. "Alright. But if you need anything tell me okay Hun?"
I nod my head and she helps me out the door and I painfully make my way to my house.....
"Why didn't you tell her?"
I sigh. "Because it wouldn't have made any difference."
"Um yes it would have. It would have made a huge difference Ash."
I growl. "Don't call me Ash you damn voice."
"Hey I have a name you idiot. And it's not fucking voice."
I laugh at the thought of a voice having an actual name.
"Don't laugh at me you dumb fuck." He scolds, making me laugh harder but gasp in pain but continue to laugh anyways.
I walk up to my door and go right to my room, ignoring my mums concerned look.
I sit on my bed, shaking my head.
"Oh yeah and what's your name then?"
I wait a couple minutes before thinking that maybe I've become so desperate for a friend that I've made up a voice in my head. That is till he speaks and I remember that I couldn't have thought someone so snarky up on my own.
"My name is Luke."
