I slowly open the stall and I peek my head out.
Luke sees this and quickly stands up dusting off his pants.
Why was he on the ground?
"You came out." He blurts out and I nod my head but keep my gaze fixed on the ground.
"Hey I won't hurt you." He says and mentally scoff.
Says you and everyone else.....
But whatever. I nod my head again and make a beeline for the door and I nearly make it but he grab my wrist to stop me. I wince and hiss in pain under my breath.
I pull away quickly -well, he let go when seeing tears- I hold my wrist to my chest and his blue eyes look at me with worry and I quickly shake my head, leaving the bathroom keeping my head down.
No, Luke can't find out. He has to stay away or he'll be bullied to. I can't live knowing that I'm the one who cause him to get bullied.
I run out, not even bothering to get nothing from my locker, that and my books are in the washroom still.
I run down the side walk but trip and fall. I squeeze my eyes shut tightly as sobs rack my body.
Why me? What did I do to deserve this?
"Ashton? What- why are you on the ground and crying?" A voice asks me and I back away from them.
Everyone I know hurts me mentally and physically somehow.
"I'm not going to hurt you- please." They say again and I blink the tears away aka making them go down my cheeks.
I look up to see Calum's sad expression.
No. Nope. Nada. Not gonna fucking happen.
I get up quickly and try to get away from him but he grabs the back of my shirt making me choke and fall back on to him.
"Oh god I'm so sorry Ashton. I didn't mean to choke you. I- I just wanted your attention." He says biting his lip.
I scowl. "Go away." I snap and walk away again.
"I should be happy you talked to me but fuck, it's not a good reason you talked though -Ashton will you please slow the fuck down I can't keep up." He says and I roll my eyes trying to walk faster without him noticing.
"I know your walking faster on purpose." Well so much for trying to not notice anything.
I sigh and turn to Calum with an annoyed expression.
I put up my pointer finger telling him he's got one minute to talk.
"Oh I get one minute okay. Ashton I'm sorry that I didn't defend you. It's just that I guess being popular and being well known is important to me and Michael- wait where are you going? That's not a minute!" He says as I walk away from him.
"Ashton please give me one more chance I promise you won't regret it. Please." Calum begs me and I stop on the spot, biting my lip wondering if I should give him one last chance.
I sigh and turn around to face him. "One." I whisper and he breaks into a giant grin.
"Thank you Ashton! Thank you! I promise you that I won't hurt you." He says pulling my into a hug and I tense up and lightly push him away.
He chuckles sheepishly. "Hey can we hang at your place and play video games? I'll get Mario Carts?" He asks and I nod but tense again.
What if he brings up the kiss? What if this is all a prank or a game?
But I guess none of that matters because before I know it, were walking to his house to get Mario Carts.
"Come on in. No ones home so it's just us. Even though we're going to your place." Calum babbles as I follow him up the stairs to his room.
I follow him and sit on his bed while he goes over to his games. "I swear I put it back.... Where the hell is it?" I hear Calum mutter.
He goes through his games and after a couple minutes he groans and falls onto his back.
"I can't find it. I give up. Sorry Ashton." He says and I shake my head smiling slightly at him.
He walks over to me and sits beside me. I look at him confused and I all of a sudden get a lonely feeling.
I miss Luke. The Luke that's in my head.
What can I do to get Luke to talk to me again....?
I've got an idea..... And if he talks to me he's gonna be pissed..... I glance at Calum who's scrolling on his phone, twitter maybe?
I need Luke back. And I know what I'm gonna do. It's a long shot but oh well.
I move closer to Calum who looks up confused.
Before he can do anything or say anything properly I grab his face and press my lips to his.
