I got up extra early to make sure I got to the studio in time. I put on a pair of leggings and a muscle tank top along with my sports bra and I gathered my already packed dance bag and made my way downstairs.
I creeped down the hall, pulling my hair into a high ponytail. Walking to the fridge I grabbed a bottle water and an apple before going and putting on my hi top white converse. I sat on the stairs, and practically nearly had a heart attack as I heard Michael come down the stairs.
"What are you doing up? It's like 7am?" I asked in a hushed voice.
"I have been awake all night, couldn't sleep" he said "and I heard you getting ready to leave so thought I could drop you"
"Thanks but you really don't have to Mikey." I walked and grabbed my jacket off the coat hook.
"Nah its fine Kim" he grabbed his keys of the cabinet and unlocked the door. I smiled walking out into the fresh morning air.
It's was warm out today as the sun glistened onto the small town of Sydney. I walked to micahels car and got in doing my belt. I grabbed the aux lead straight away as Michael got in the car.
"Hey why do you get the aux lead?" He said and pouted.
"Because I have the better music taste" he raised his eyebrow
"we listen to the same stuff"
"you know what I mean" I dismissed and scrolled through my music.
"My car, my choice of music" he went to grab the lead I moved my phone quickly.
"but mikey I'm your little sister who you love loads..." I gave him a side hug and he pushed me off.
"you can have the lead if you promise to never hug me again" he laughed and grinned as did I.
"deal" I smiled and played Dance Dance by Fall Out Boy. Classic.
He drove to my studio, it took about 15 minutes as there was no traffic as my class was early. He pulled up outside my studio and he parked up in the empty lot.
"Thanks Mikey" he waved goodbye and got out.
"I will pick you up aswell? What time do you finish?"
"Okay, see you then sis" I walked in through the door and was greeted at the front desk by Maria.
"Kimmmmm, it's been so long" she rushed round and hugged me.
"I know omg. Don't ever go on holiday for 2 weeks again" I joked and she laughed.
"I don't think I will be, missed this place to much. Now go dump your stuff I'm the changing rooms, we have a audition solo to be working on"
Mikey dropped me home so I could shower before school. It was a rush as I had to be in school for 9 and it was abit before quarter to now. I was hoping if I ask Michael he will drop me so I'm not as late.
At 9 when I was ready I ran down the stairs and into the garage where he was.
"Mikey will you dr-" I paused as Ash and Cal was there.
"Oh it doesn't- never mind"
"No Kim what is it?" He asked and I stood in the doorway.
"I'm already late and I was wandering if you could drop me"
"I can't we have to work out the guitar chords for this song..." he said, sorriness was in his tone.
I went to walk out when I was stopped. "I can drop you Kim, if you want?" Ashton said as I mentally cursed.
"Aww yeah thanks buddy" Mikey said and I smiled.
"Umm sure... thanks" I said and walked out with him slow behind me.
"Which is yours?" I asked gesturing to the cars.
"Well it's not the black Audi as that's your brothers. And there is no other cars here but my white BMW" I slapped myself across the face a billion times in my head and I walked.
"Oh yeah aha" I awkwardly laughed and got in when he unlocked it.
The car was so clean and well kept inside compared to micahels. He has leather seats which made a noise everytime you moved. Especially when you had shorts on.
"What school?" He asked.
"North west, the same one Mikey used to go to and I'm guessing you used to" he nodded
"Yeah I went there" he smiled at me.
The ride was silent yet not awkward.
"Listen, I didn't want to bring this up but I don't want it to be awkward anymore" I turned my attention to him as he spoke. He thought it was awkward...?
"I want us to forget what happened in the the club that night and just start fresh ok, I don't want it to be awkward when I take you out on Friday and I certainly don't want Michael to know that when I first did meet you was at a club and we couldn't keep our hands of each other."
I started at the side of his face as he focused on the road ahead. His hair was messily under a bandad and he had a tank top on with a pair of blue skinny jeans and black converse.
"Oh yeah of course, I don't need my brother knowing I'm out in clubs" I laughed and we pulled up at a red light.
"How old are you Kim?" He asked and started at me.
"How old you think think I am?" I asked and he shrugged.
"About a year younger than Michael? So 18? Last year of college?"
I shook my head. "I'm 16 Ashton"
He showed no reaction to the news and put his foot on the accelerator as the light turned green.
"and that's why I would rather not my over protective brother know I'm sneaking into clubs and sticking my tounge down his 21 year old friends throat.." I said, not angrily but the was a hint of harshness in my tone.
"that didn't mean to come out so angrily, I'm sorry."
"That's fine" was all he replied before pulling in the school gate.
I grabbed my bag and undid my belt. Before getting the handle on the door.
"Thanks for the ride, I really appreciate it, see you whenever" I said before slamming the door and rushing through the front doors.
Well that was awkward...
"I'm 16 Ashton" a million things flew through my head as I tired my hardest not to react. 16...
"and that's why I would rather not my over protective brother know I'm sneaking into clubs and sticking my tounge down his 21 friends throat.." She sounded angry as she spoke yet her face didn't frown once.
Her blue eyes still glistened from the sun as we drove and her hair, in a loose ponytail looked so soft. She smelled like black current and vanilla her face was makeup free as she was running late.
"that didn't mean to come out so angrily, I'm sorry."
"That's fine" was all I said. What was I supposed to say?
We pulled into the school thank god, it wouldn't be awkward at all now that we was here.
She got simply saying she would see me whenever.
I drove back to micahels in silence, she was still everything I could think about, she's 16, 16!
I pulled up and walked into Mikey's house and to garage.
"All done bro" I said and sat down.
"Thanks bro, hey listen to this riff" Calum said as Michael picked up his guitar...
and still all I could think about is Kim...
