"Tony?" Calum asks confused and I nod.
"Tony. He doesn't do as much as Michael, he's more for words, Michael's more psychical- always has." I say shrugging my shoulders looking down.
"What do you plan on doing? Cause you don't actually do much..... No offence Ashton." Cal says and I give him a forced bitter smile.
"Not sure yet. I'm not doing it now..... Don't worry Cal." I say patting his shoulder.
He gives me a look of concern. I brush it off and take a deep breath walking out of the bathroom, getting ready for all the painful words and glares.
I slowly make my way to my locker and ignore the writing on it.
"Well, well, well. What have we here Asshton?" I hear Michael say from beside me a tense.
For two reasons. 1) he beats me up all the time so who wouldn't be tense and 2) last time I saw him he kissed me and left a mark on me.
I motion to my locker, watching his expression. He looks at my locker and his smile fades away, turning into a glare.
Shit he's probably mad at me.
His glare turns to me and he pins me against the lockers, people stopping to see how he'll beat me up this time.
He leans in real close to me ear and sneers, "Who did this?"
I know the answer but I'm not telling him and- wait. Why the fuck does he care?
I shrug my shoulders slightly and he growls making me squeeze my eyes shut.
"You don't know?" He asks.
I shake my head and he sighs. His breath hitting my neck.
He pulls back and glares at my locker before walking off leaving everyone confused.
Why didn't he beat me? Not that I'm complaining because I'm definitely not.
I turn around and unlock my locker stuffing everything in it as the lunch bell rings.
I make my way to the cafeteria and go to the very back corner.
People trip me and laugh as I make my way to my table.
I sit down and take out my phone, as someone plops down beside me. I look up to see Rory sighing a big breath.
"Holy shit. I hate gym so much." She says dramatically. "Like I swear there trying to kill us- if not us then just me."
Another girl comes over and sits beside Rory who grins at her.
"Ashton this is my cousin Lilly. Lil, this is Ashton. He doesn't talk, well he does but he chooses not to." Rory says and I recognize her from earlier.
She's the girl who stood up for me this morning.
She's got long black hair and big brown eyes with glasses. "Hi." She beams at me and I nod with a smile.
"So I heard Michael was talking with you before you came here.... Did he hurt you?" Rory asks with a worried look.
I shake my head. She sighs in relief.
"Thank god. Otherwise I would- wait. Then why did he talk to you, cause from what I know he only goes to you to beat you up." She says growing confused.
I shrug shaking my head because in all honesty I don't have any idea either.
"Right I'm starving like oh my god. I could eat anything." Rory says leaning against Lilly who shoves her off.
"Bitch I ain't your leaning post." Lilly says while Rory pouts.
She turns to me. "You'll let me lean on you right Ashy?" She blinks and makes her eyes big.
I give her a weirded out look and shake my head.
She turn foreword and crosses he arms with a pout. "Well fine be rude to me."
Lilly pats her head. "There there." She says and Rory glares at her.
"Anyway. Lilly just moved here and I've taken it upon my amazing self to help her out is anyway I can." Rory says and Lilly rolls her eyes.
"I know where to go dumbass." She says earning a hit on the arm by Rory.
"Sorry for trying to help bitch." Rory says biting into a sandwich.
"I'm not a bitch, Ashton am I bitch?" Lilly asks me and I'm taken back by her adding me in.
I shrug my shoulder making Rory snicker and her gasp.
"Wow I'm feeling so attacked right now." Lilly says placing her had over her heart.
Rory snickers, "See this is why I love Ashton. He agrees with me." Lilly flips her off making me chuckle and steal her water bottle while she pouts at me.
I smile taking a sip of it and she growls.
"Thanks." I whisper taking another sip looking away from her face which shows shock.
"Holy- you talked! Well whispered but who gives a fuck you still made a sound!" Rory squeals while Lilly gives her a wired look.
She then looks at me. "You became friend a with her, I will never understand why but, you did. You've got balls kid." She says eating a carrot.
I furrow my eyebrows. I bet I'm older then her.
"I bet you that Ashy is older then you Lil." Rory says sticking her tongue out at her cousin who rolls her eyes.
"How old are you?" Lilly asks.
Rory turns to me. "Yeah, how old are you?"
"You mean you don't even know how old he is?" Lilly ask Rory who glares at her.
"I didn't really care about age stupid." She says and I chuckle softly.
"What are you five? Only little kids call people stupid." Lilly says.
"Well I'm actually 5 and a half. Fuck, get it right." Rory says and dramatically flips her hair over her shoulder.
"So I heard a thing going around that your uh you know..... Gay...... Is that actually true?" Lilly asks making Rory choke on her sandwich and me choke on the water I was drinking. "Shit sorry didn't mean to make you choke."
I look at her with wide eyes and I look down at my lap.
"Bitch. You can't just ask that." Rory snaps and I bite my lip.
"I-I'm sorry Ashton. I didn't mean to offend you or upset you or anything like that." Lilly says and I look up to see her looking really upset.
I open my mouth but close it when I see Calum and Michael walk over. Tony no where to be seen.
"Who're you?" Michael asks looking at Lilly.
"None of your business. Go try to find some other poor girl to torment." She says biting another carrot.
"You must be related to her then." Michael says motioning to Rory, he still doesn't know her name....
"Well no shit. Gold star for you." She says sarcastically making me bite down a laugh.
Not Rory though.
She burst out laughing and leans on me to keep her self upright while we all look at her like she grew another head.
"Oh I love you Lilly. So glad your here cause your very entertaining." Rory says wrapping her arm around her cousin who shoves her off.
"Yeah, yeah. Love ya to now get off me." She says and Rory put her hands up in surrender.
"Fine be a bitch." She says eating her sandwich and I roll my eyes at them.
Michael gives me a confused look and I sigh, looking down at my phone, trying so hard to ignore Michael's stare.
"You guys are gonna make me forget why I came over here to begin with." Michael says, then he grabs my arm pulling me away from my table, making the whole place stop and watch as Michael drags me out of the cafeteria.
I try to get my arm out of his grasp but I'm weak so that's not gonna happen.
He looks around, seeing if anyone's around and he pulls me into a closet.
Oh the irony.....
