No, no, no. This- this isn't- can't be real.
I shake my head and my breathing becomes uneven and really fast.
"Ashton. Please open the door. Something doesn't feel right." Luke bangs on the door again and my breathing just comes in fast pants.
"Fuck." I hear him mumble and before I know it Luke's sliding under the door.
He sits up looking at me and his eye go huge. "Fuck Ashton." He says as he grabs my shoulders.
"Ashton. Ashton, hey look at me. It's okay. Breath. Deep breaths. In, out." He says and I finally get my breathing back to normal after a couple minutes. I fall into his chest with a sob letting out all my pain and sorrow and anger through my tears.
I clutch on to his shirt and he holds me close to him. "Shhh. It's okay Ashton. Everything's gonna be okay."
I really hope no one walks in. Yeah we're in the farthest stall but if anyone came in and saw this would be just weird.
Luke. Is this really him?
I pull away slightly and look at him confused. He sighs. "You've got questions. And I'm sorry that I can't answer them all. Not now anyway."
I look at the floor still not believing it's the Luke. The one from my head.
"C'mon lets get up. We've got to at least get to second class." He says standing up. I just sit there staring at him.
He sighs again and grabs my hands and pulls me up to my feet. I grab on to him so I don't fall. "Whoa, easy there tiger."
I scowl at him and he chuckles and looks away.
I open the door stepping out and I hear a gasp followed by a snicker and my head snaps up to see Tony leaning against the wall, arms crossed with a giant smirk on his face and I visibly pale.
I look around for Luke but he's gone. Okay talk about confusing. I didn't even hear the door open and close.
"Well, well. Mr. Emo is also gay? Should have known. Spying on guys in the restroom. You check out your classmates in the changing rooms to? I bet that's heaven for you. Half naked boys all around you. Only the towel separating you from there dicks. Bet that's your favourite class. " Tony sneers and I back away hoping Luke will come back and save me.
I shake my head and his smirk grows. "You actually responded somewhat. I'm impressed." He says running a hand through his blonde hair. Kinda like Luke with the being blonde and blue eyes. That and he's almost the same hight as him. Super fit to.
"You know Michael wants to talk to you. He said to meet him in G hallway at lunch. Don't miss it or he'll be much more harder on you then he already is." Tony tells me and smirks while walking out if the washroom leaving me shaking like a leaf.
Well I'm dead.
I make my way out of the washroom as the bell rings. I quickly go to my class, grateful that it's only a few doors down from the washroom.
I go in and take my seat still shaking and petrified.
"Ashton? Where's your stuff?" Mr. Dallas asks with a slight frown.
I bite my lip looking down.
He sighs. "Ashton are you okay?"
I nod my head and he gives me one last look before walking away.
Michael, Tony and Calum walk in laughing about something.
Michael sees me and flips me off but what really gets me is his wink after.
What the actual fuck?
I look down at my desk and I feel someone tap on my shoulder and look up to see Luke.
He sits beside me and I look away.
"Sorry I ran away like that..... I'm actually not suppose to be here..... So I don't really want to draw attention to myself....." He tells me only confusing me more.
"Class please turn to page 657 in your text book and work on questions 1 to 56 please. You may work quietly with the person beside you." Mr. Dallas says.
I do as told and mentally do a happy dance. I'm good at this. All you have to do is find X. You take 12 and times that by itself and get 144 then take 10 and times that with itself and get 100. Then you minus 100 and 144 and get 44 then you get 6.63. That's all you've got to do.
It's really easy.
It's the Pythagorean Theorem...
I look over and see Luke's just diddling on the paper.
I take it away from him and write, 'What are you doing? Do the actual work if you don't want to fail dumbass.'
He chuckles. "I don't need to do the work Ashton. I'm not actually suppose to be here, remember?"
I lightly shake my head still confused.
I ignore his stare and finish my work bringing it up Mr. Dallas still giving me a worried look.
I also ignore that and sit back down.
"Why don't you talk?" He asks me and no one seems to care that he's talking.
Wait. That's the first thing he asked me ever...... If he really was Luke he would know that.
But then he opens his big mouth. "Yeah I know I already asked you that but you never answered me."
My mouth goes slack a little and I bite my tongue to keep from saying something to him that I'll regret. Or anything anyway.
I lay my head down and he sighs.
I stay like that till the bell rings telling me that it's lunch. Not that I'm gonna eat anything....
I quickly gather my things and make a beeline for the door only to be tripped and fall on my face as the class laughs at me.
I sigh seeing all my shit all over the floor, papers all over and people are just stepping and purposely crumpling them and ripping them.
"Dumbass." I hear Michael snicker and Tony and him leave laughing. Calum give me a sad look and follows them.
I start to gather my things from the ground around me and I notice someone else helping me.
I look up to see a brunet girl with black rimmed glasses on. Her hairs up in a slick ponytail as she helps me pick up my papers and stuff. Her hairs actually curly now that I look at it.
She stands up and walks over to me with them. I slowly take them.
"I-I know you don't talk. But- uh. I'm Rory." She say holding her small hand out for me to shake. She seems okay I guess. But I also thought the same about Michael and Calum and look where that got me.
I slowly the her hand and shake it before retracting it to my side.
I nod my thanks to her and turn to leave. "Wait!"
I turn back and raise an eyebrow at her. She picks at her nails and bites her lip. "I-I didn't get your name....."
I mouth it to her.
"Ashton? Is that it?" She asks with big green eyes.
I nod my head with a small smile. "Well Ashton can I eat lunch with you? If you don't mind. I'm kinda new. I told the teacher to not make me talk in front of everyone or to point me out and thankfully he didn't."
I think about it for a second but eventually nod my head forgetting all about what Tony told me earlier about Michael and she beams at me.
"Well let's go then! I've got a lunch that's calling my name and I'm not gonna ignore it's calling no more." She says and the shy person is gone. For now anyway.
She hooks her arm with mine and drags me towards the cafeteria and I can't help but smile at how much energy she's got.
I blink once we get to the cafeteria and look around for Luke.
Where'd he go?
She pulls me over to a table and pushes me down in a seat and she sits beside me, taking out a lunch pale and pulls out a few food items.
A sandwich, apple, two juice boxes, a bag of cheese and meat and two granola bars.
She sees me looking at her food and asks, "Want some? I don't usually share but you seem cool so I'll share if you want anything."
I blink a couple times and shake my head and she shrugs her shoulders.
"Fine. More for me." She says then laughs as she takes a bite of her sandwich.
I shake my head and take a small piece of cheese and put it in my mouth. She grins and slides the bag over to me.
I about to take anther but a voice stops me.
"I'm impressed. Your actually eating. Don't emo's almost never eat and if they do don't they throw it up after? Is that what you do? You didn't show up." Michael says sitting beside me and sneers then he looks over at Rory.
"Well hello. Aren't you adorable." He says to her conpleatly forgetting about me for a second and she rolls her eyes.
"I know I am, no need to tell me twice but go ahead, it's gotta nice ring to it." She says and I bite back and laugh as Michael grins at her.
"I'm Michael. And you are?" He asks getting up and sitting beside her.
Great, she's gonna leave me to.
"I'm none of your business. Now go peasant so I can eat my cheese in piece." She says taking another bite of her cheese and Michael glares at me.
"How can you eat around him? I can hardly keep my food down from just looking at him." Michael spits out and I cower, making myself smaller. Not hard Michael's taller then me, might not be by much but he still is.
She turns her piercing green eyes to him and they narrow. "Well I'm eating while looking at you so I think I can handle Ashton thank you very much. Now get lost."
Michael looks taken back and scowls at me before getting up and walking away with Tony. Calum gives me a smile and give him a small one in return.
Yeah know, maybe Rory doesn't seem that bad....
I could get use to her. I think.
