1. Chapter One
"Mom! Just leave me alone!" Ashton yelled running upstairs. "Ashton! You can't ditch school" I yelled. "Well I did!" He yelled, walking into his room. "Do not slam that door on me young man." I yelled. "Well look!" He yelled back slamming the door in my face. "Ashton Calum Michael! Open this door now! We are not finished!" I yelled. "Mom! I'm seventeen! Go away!" He yelled.
"What happened now?" Luke asked. "Ashton ditched school. Again." I replied. "He needs to take responsibilities." He replied. I nodded.
"Hey. Ash." I said walking into Ashton's room. "What the hell do you want." He snapped. "I want to talk to you." I said. "Not you too." He said. "Look, your mother is just concerned. She doesn't want you to end up like me. When I ditched school, I went to band practices, parties, everything. She just doesn't want you to get hurt." I replied. He rolled his eyes.
"Dad. I'm seventeen and-" "you know, when I was seventeen, your mother just got pregnant with you." I said. "What the hell does that have to do with this?" He asked. "I thought I could live on my own, have a family on my own, but I couldn't. You used to come up to me when you were younger. Asking me to help you with your math homework. And I couldn't help you, because I ditched so much, and I dropped out of school." I replied. He smiled. "I remember that." He said. "Please promise me you won't ditch school anymore." I said. "Fine." He replied.
