"Ashton Calum Michael Hemmings get your ass down here right now!" Dad screamed from the stairs. He never uses my full name. I walked down the stairs. "What the hell is this?!" He yelled holding up a paper. "Oh. I forgot to tell you. I got suspended for a week." I replied. "Oh. That would have been good news! Why!?" He yelled. "I may or may not have cursed off my teacher, and the principal." I replied. "Wait until your mother hears about this." Dad said. "Oh my god. I'm so scared. What is mom going to do? Ground me?" I replied laughing. "Yes, but I wonder what your uncle Niall will do." Dad replied. "Uncle Niall is stupid. He's nothing but an Irish dumbass." I replied. "That's it! Go to your room." Dad said. "You do realize I'm turning eighteen soon, which means, I can make my own decisions." I said. "You do realize I am your father, and you're living under my house." He replied. I rolled my eyes, and walked upstairs.
"Guys? What are you doing here?" I asked, as I opened the door seeing Harry, Niall, Zayn, Liam, and Louis. "Luke called us, said something about Ashton." Niall replied. I sighed. "He didn't tell you?" Liam asked. I shook my head. "Ashton got suspended." Harry said. "Luke!" I yelled. "Oh guys! Thank god you're here. He's in his room." Luke said. They all nodded and walked up the stairs.
"Why the hell didn't you tell me?" I asked. "I can handle things on my own." He replied. "So can I." I replied. "He's my son. I don't need permission to do anything." He said. I was taken back by his comment. 'He's my son' "he's mine too you know." I replied.
"Well, you're never home to actually know what's going on." He said. "When did this turn into about me?!" I asked. "When you brought up the situation." He replied. I laughed.
"What has gotten into you." I said. "You. You haven't been home for a long time. This is the first time in weeks." He replied. "Okay? I'm busy at work." I replied. "Too busy to call?" He asked. "Luke, calm down. Your face is red." I said.
"I won't calm down. Do you know how long it's been since we had sex sky!" He yelled. "Luke-" "just answer." He said. "I don't know, two months?" I asked. "Sky, we haven't had sex since Ashton was sixteen." He said. "Oh." I replied. He nodded. "Do you know how it feels to be in a bed, alone?" He asked. I looked to the ground. "All I'm asking, is for you to be more involved." He said. I nodded.
"Ash, you know it's bad to do this." Harry said. "So? I'm seventeen. I can make my own decisions." Ashton replied. "You know what's funny, that's what your father told me, when he brought your mum on tour with us." I said.
"Everyone brings that up!" He yelled. "Because your parents thought they could do anything, because they were seventeen. But nine months later, you popped out, and your dad became a father at seventeen, and so did your mother. They thought they could make their own decisions, but they couldn't. They were too young." I said. "I don't care! My mom is barely home. I have all my siblings living in my house. My mom doesn't love me anymore-" "don't you dare say that!" Liam yelled. "Do you know what your mother got put through when you were younger, and still today!" Liam yelled. "Your mother suffered through hatred, paparazzi, ex boyfriends." Liam said. Ashton looked to the floor. "You remember Brad?" I asked. He nodded. "He put your mother through hell." I said. He nodded.
"I don't know what's gotten into you, or why you're acting this way, but, it needs to stop." I said. He looked at me. "Fine." He said. "Look at me." I said. He looked at me. "Promise me, you won't do this again." I said. "Promise." He said sighing. I nodded and got up.
"Uncle Niall." He said. "What's up." I asked. "How long did it take you to find a girlfriend?" He asked. "A while. And still looking. Why?" I replied. "Well, there's this girl, and I really like her." He replied. I smiled. "It will either fall, or come together." I replied walking out.
