51. Coming Over.
It's been four days since I've talked to Michael no. He hasn't tried to call me, text me or even see me. It's like I'm nothing. I walk down the stairs only to be greeted by a hug from Calums mom "I'm so glad to have you here Ari. Its been great honestly." I smile at her "I've loved being here." She smiles at me. "um.. I'm going to go to Ashtons.. So when Calum wakes up could you tell him." She nods smiling. When I get to Ashtons I knock on the door but there's no answer. The garage door is open but no car is in it. I go to the side of the house looking up at Ashtons window. I start to throw things at it. He comes up with a huge frown on his but it quickly changes into a smile. He opens the window. "HEY BEAUTIFUL." I smile walking to the back of his house. I wait for him to come out. "Throwing rocks at your window at 9 am. You met in your backyard right now." He giggles. "Hi." I smile at him. "Hey." We go back and sit by his pool. "So Ms. Ariel. Can you swim like a mermaid." My eyes widen. "Oh god no. I can't swim." He shakes his head. "Your name is ver misleading." I roll my eyes. I go to lay back but I'm stopped by Ashton when he grabs my arm turning it over. He shakes his head. "There was already too many.. Ariel... What have you done." I jerk my arm away standing up. "I'm g-going to go for a walk." I Say walking away. He stands up "Ariel, wait. Don't do this. Don't do this to yourself-" I cut him off. "WHAT DO YOU FUCKING WANT FROM ME ASHTON?! I have no one. I have no family and no friends. Nothing. The only reason you guys took me on is because you felt bad for me. I'm damaged goods and that's and there's no changing that."
I wake up to find no Ari. I check my phone but nothing. I start to walk downstairs to see my mom sitting at the end. "Hey mum." She turns to me. "Calum I have to talk to you." I nod walking the rest of the way down. "Calum... I... I found this. It still had a little blood on it.." She holds on a razor. I stare at it wide eyed. "Calum.. If.. If you.. If you're having problems-" I cut her off. "Mum. No its not me. Jeez. No don't worry. I mean I may seem kind of upset or whatever sometimes but.. I wouldn't do that.. I know who did it though." She looks down. "I'm sorry for." I hug her. "Mum seriously. Its okay. I have to find Ari though." She nods. "She said she was going to Ashtons." I pick up my phone dialing his number. "Hey is Ari there. We have a problem." I hear him sigh. "No. Dude she just left. She went off on me.. I don't know what to do she's... She's cutting again..." I close my eyes. "I know.. My mum found... the.." He cuts me off. "Yeah. Just go find her i don't think she wants to see me.."
I lay on the floor of my bedroom I haven't been out for a couple days now. I haven't ate and I'm not sleeping good. My mum has been trying to talk to me but her attemps just push me away farther. There's a knock on my door. "Go away mum." There's another knock. "Mum GO AWAY I DON'T WANT TO TALK!" The door nob starts to jiggle and then the door opens. It's Ari. I look down. "What?" She comes over to me sitting down. She sighs. "I was coming over because I didn't know where to go.. But.. I see that there's something going on with you. So whats up?" I look down. "I can't tell you." She scoots closer putting her head on my shoulder. "Okay Lukey.. Okay." We sit there in silence. But its not a awkward silence its a good silence. She takes my hand and starts to rub small cirlcles on my hand. I sigh. "I'm here for you Luke." She kisses my cheek and stands puling me up. "Come on. You look tired." She pulls the covers back sitting down patting beside her. I climb in. She starts to play with my hair and let her. "I'll be here when you wake up." I slowly start to slip away but then stop. "Wait." I shoot up. "What about Michael." She looks down. "It's been four days Luke.. He hit me.. Ash hates me now too.." I shake my head. "HE HIT YOU?!?! And why does Ash hate you??" I force her to look up to me. "Yeah... He gave me a really bad bloody nose.. It was swollen.. and um.. Ash hates me because..." She lokks down again. "Ariel tell me now." She flips her arm over closing her eyes. "Nobody noticed and I..." I cut her off. "Oh Ariel.. Why?" She goes to get up. "Ariel you're not leaving." I see tears brimming in her eyes. "Luke what do you think? I have no one." I get up pulling her into a hug. "No.. You have me.. You have Ash. and you have Calum. and even if it don't feel like it you have Michael." She pulls away from me. "No.. You guys only took me on because you felt bad for me." I close my eyes. "Ariel. You don't fall in love with someone because you feel bad." I sigh pulling her back on the bed. "Stop doing this.." I hold her but soon I fall asleep.
I walk out of the house grabbing my keys on the way. I get in the car going to get some more beer. I walk into the closet store and go straight to the beer. People start to notice it's me so I take a couple pictures. I finally get out of the store when I get a call. "Have you talked to Ari?" I snort. "Fuck no, why?" Ash sighs. "She's cutting again and we can't find her anywhere. We thought she would've went to Lukes but when we got there his mom said Luke hasn't been talking to anybody at all he won't even come out let alone see anyone." I roll my eyes. "And?" I get in the car. "And if you care about her you'd help." I start to laugh. "Fuck off. All she's going to do is do the guilt thing about how I hit her. Well guess what I don't fucking feel guilty." I hang up slamming my phone down. I start to drive when I see somebody on the side of the road. Blood on their shirt. I turn back. It looks like.. It is. I pull my car over getting out and walking back. "Ariel?" She looks up at me swaying. "Ariel what are you doing?" No answer. I get closer to her. "Ari?!" She starts to fall but I catch her before she goes down. I sigh picking her up and carrying her. When I get into the car I notice her hands are bloody and she has a cut on her side. She has pieces of class in her hands. I close my eyes. I start the car. "Ash. I'm coming over."
