As soon as the bell rang I sprung out of my seat and bolted out the door rushing to meet Ashley at her locker. "Ah it's summer!" I screamed. "This is going to be the best summer ever!" She said jumping up and down.
I knew this would be one of our last summers together before we had to start applying for colleges and focusing on senior year. It had to be the best summer yet.
"So are we gonna head back to my place?" I asked as we walked into the courtyard. "Sure but I need to stop at my place and grab my bags" she replied.
The courtyard was filled with couples saying there last goodbyes before they both left on vacations. All the couples made me feel lonely. I hoped I met someone this summer but I wasn't quite sure if I was ready for a relationship. I mean come on I haven't had a boyfriend for like three years!
As we drove to Ashley's house we listened to the radio. A really good song came on and it was so catchy. At the end of the song the radio announcer announced the song as Long Way Home by the Australian band called 5 Seconds of Summer. I had heard of them before but I had never heard any of there music.
Me and Ashley were spending our summer at a beautiful resort in Florida. I was so excited we could finally do something as adults.
When we got to Ashley's I waited for her in the car and scrolled through Instagram. When she came out she had like 6 different bags. I was surprised at first then didn't blame because we were spending the whole summer there after all.
Our plane would leave that night at 9:00. I couldn't believe that I was spending my summer in Florida. I was so ready to sit by the pool everyday have fancy dinners and meet some cute boys.
We hung out at my place for a while until we finally had to start driving to the airport. Ashley was reading me the schedule she had made over the weeks before our trip. She basically had the whole trip planned out. Everyday at least included time at the pool and fancy meals which I was pretty happy about.
As soon as we arrived at the airport I went in an asked if we could have some help unloading our stuff. One of the guys at the counter came out and helped us.
When me and Ashley got into the airport we went straight to the Starbucks. We both got a double chocolate chip frappé. We drank it as we walked through the airport strolling through all the gift shops. While we were walking through the gifts shops Ashley and I suddenly heard a bunch of screaming. We both ran out of the gift shop to see a bunch of girls surrounding around 4 guys. I didn't know what was so special about them but they had body guards helping them to get through the airport.
I asked a girl standing close to us who they were. She told me they were a new band from Australia called 5 Seconds of Summer. I had remembered hearing there song earlier that day. I actually got kind of excited myself. They were all so cute.
Ashley's seat was across the row from me on the plane she had one empty seat by her and so did I.
I woke up 10 minutes later after the plane had lifted off I had no idea how I fell asleep. I wake up to a guy sitting beside me. He had black hair and brown eyes. He was wearing a nirvana shirt with black skinny jeans and black converse. He looked very tall. It took me a minute to realize who he was. I realized he was one of the members of that band. He was leaning against the plane window looking out at the dark sky. I shuffled in my seat a little bit making him looked over at me. "How did you sleep through the take off?" He asks "It was so bumpy." "I have no idea" I chuckled.
I looked over to see Ashley sitting by another member of the band he was blonde with bright blue eyes wearing a very similar outfit to the one sitting next to me. Him and Ashley were talking about there band.
"So what's your name?" I turn looking at the dark haired boy. "Calum, yours?" "Hope" I say. I couldn't resist smiling his accent was so adorable. "Where are you from?" He asks.
"Wow what are doing way down here?"
"Touring with my band."
Duh I totally should have realized that.He looked at me confused.
"What?" I ask.
"I'm just not used to not talking to a girl I don't know without them freaking out and telling me how they are my biggest fan."
"Well I didn't even actually here of your band until today."
He smiled at me. I looked away fast looking at my outfit forgetting what I was wearing. I had on some ripped skinny jeans black vans and a red black and white flannel. I was pretty happy with the outfit I was wearing.
I smiled at her but she looked away quickly.
Sometimes I hated being in a band. I felt like I could never meet someone new without them freaking out on me. She had no idea who I was which kind of made me feel good. I was actually having a normal conversation with someone I had just met.
She looked really great in what she was wearing. I couldn't help but just stare into her eyes.
Flying always made me so tired so I decided to go to sleep. I took one last look at her before I layed my head against the window and fell asleep.
