I open my locker and place my books inside. I then walk to Chloe's locker to walk with her to lunch. "We're not sitting in our normal seats today." Chloe says as she shuts her locker.
"What do you mean?" I ask. Chloe has been up to some weird shit lately and it's been driving me nuts.
"I may have became close friends with the guys over the weekend." She simply says.
"Chloe, will you please tell me what your up to?" I sigh as we walk into the lunch room.
"Nope." She smirks.
I sigh and follow her over to table where the guys sit. Luke, Calum, Michael, and Ashton. Ashton offers for me to sit next to him on the end and Chloe nudges me a little. I roll my eyes and sit next to Ashton. Chloe sits in front of me with Luke sitting beside her and Calum next to Luke. Michael next to Ashton.
We all end up talking about music. "Elli, do you okay anything?" Calum asks me.
"The piano, and I know I little bit of guitar but not much." I say.
Ashton smiles beside me. "I play the piano and guitar too."
I smile. "And of course the drums."
Ashton giggles. "Yes, of course the drums."
I laugh and Chloe winks at me. I roll my eyes at her and blush down at the table. I pick at my pizza. I haven't really been hungry today.
"Elli I'm sorry but why the hell arn't you eating that pizza? Pizza deserves to be eaten." Michael asks.
I laugh. "I'm just not hungry."
"You better not throw that away, pizza can't be put to waste." Michael warns.
"And what if I do?"
"I'll have Chloe kill you."
I stand up and take my tray to the garbage can and throw away the pizza. I smirk at Michael and he glares at me. I roll my eyes and we all laugh.
Soon lunch ends and I walk to my locker to get my things for music and my last class. Just then I feel a tap on my shoulder and I jump and scream quietly. I turn around to see Ashton. "Ashton I'm gonna fucking kill you!" I sigh.
Ashton laughs. "Will you walk to music with me?"
I laugh. "Yeah."
Ashton smiles and we both start to walk to music. "I think we're playing drums today. Mind if I teach you?" He asks.
"No at all drummer boy." I smile as we walk into class.
Ashton laughs and sit next to me. Just as he knew we were playing the drums today. Our teacher wants us to play with a partner and that he will be around to check on us. "Will this hard rock piano player be my partner?" Ashton asks as he sets a box drum on the floor for me. I nod and Ashton smiles before he sets his box drum down.
"First of all, you sit on it like this." Ashton says as he sits down on the drum and spreads his legs so he can hit the drum. I do the same. "Good, now to get a deeper sound you hit the middle, you hit the edge for a little higher and sharper sound." He explains. Ashton does it a few times to show me.
I follow his movements. "And then the space between that would be the inbetween sound?" I ask. Ashton nods with a smile.
"Wanna learn some of She Looks So Perfect?" He asks. I nod and Ashton demonstrates slowly how to do the first couple notes. I laugh as I struggle at them but I finally get a hold of it. "See, you can do this." Ashton laughs.
I laugh and by the end of the class I have half of the first verse learned. When the bell rings Ashton walks half way to my next class with me because we past his next class. I honestly can't believe that I am becoming friends with Ashton. Ashton Irwin, the famous drummer of the school. I can't even believe the fact that I'm becoming friends with Michael, Calum or Luke either.
God, my life is changing.
I walk home after school ends and I see that my mom is home. I walk through the door and slide off my combat boots at the door. I sigh as my mum comes out from the living room.
"I think we need to have a talk." She sighs.
"Okay?" I say as we walk into the kitchen. I sit on one of the bar stools around the island and my mum stands on the other side. "What do we need to have a talk about?"
"I know I wasn't the best mother when your father was here." She starts. I stare down at the counter, I still haven really gotten over his death. "And I'm so sorry about that but El I'm really trying to become a parent back in your life."
"Ever since you lost your job a two years ago it all changed. When I was in grade ten you disappeared every day when I came home. I never knew where you were until you came home at three in the morning." I say, tears brimming in my eyes. I look up at my mum, she already has tear stained cheeks.
"Do you know how much a girl needs their mum at that age? And you weren't there mum, you never were then." I say. "It's gonna take me a while to get used to you being around. Even if it has been a year since dad died, you weren't there until like a month later."
Now there are tears on my cheeks. My mum blows her nose. "I'm so sorry Elli." She whispers.
"Yeah," I sigh. "I know."
I walk up to my room and shut the door behind me. I stand there and look around my room for a while. A queen sized bed in one corner with black and white aztec sheets. Dark purple walls with Green Day, Blink 182, Nirvana, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, and All Time Low posters all over. I have a piano in another corner with a bulletin board above it with music notes and drawings of song lyrics on it. I have a white dresser infront of my bed with a flattscrene TV on the wall above it. Then I have a closet, a bookshelf, and an attaching bathroom.
My room is pretty complicated for a teenager. I sigh and sit down at my piano. I start to play Basket Case by Green Day on my piano. I move with my arms as I play the instrument. I move along to the beat and each note I play like I'm one with it. When I play music it feels like I'm one with it and I'm on a different planet. But in all honesty, it's amazing.
My phone then rings. A FaceTime from Ashton. I quickly answer it and set it on my stand on the piano for my music. "Elli! Guess what!" Ashton yells.
"You fell and broke your ankle?" I ask.
"Your so negative." Ashton laughs. I laugh and he continues. "This followed me home." Says as he holds up a puppy. It looks like the cutest puppy ever.
"Ashton, it's so cute I wanna hold it." I smile.
"Well get your ass over here, I'm home." Ashton laughs. "See you in ten?"
"Yeah." I smile as I hang up my phone. I quickly go downstairs and put on my combat boots. "Mum, I'm going to my friends for a while, don't bother making any dinner!" I yell.
"Okay! Don't be home late." She yells back.
I hurry out the door and start my car. I jump into the drivers seat and drive to Ashton's house. In the matter of five minutes I get there. I see that only his car is here so he must be home alone. I knock on the door and I hear little barks come from inside. I smile and then Ashton opens the door.
"Hurry get in for this little shit runs away." Ashton says. I laugh and quickly get inside. I gasp once I see the puppy and pick it up. It's a baby girl pug.
"Ashton it's adorable." I laugh.
Ashton smiles. "Come on let's go to my room, you can bring the puppy."
I smile and follow him upstairs into his room. His walls are a brick theme and he has a queen sized bed in one corner. A dresser on one wall, a flat screen TV on the wall in front of his bed, and a drum kit in the other corner of the room. He has Blink 182, Led Zeppelin, Nirvana and Green Day posters evey where just like me. I smile and Ashton sits down on his bed, offering me a seat.
I sit down and lean my back against the wall. Ashton moves next to me and does the same as the puppy runs around on our laps. "Have you found a name for her yet?" I ask.
"Nope." Ashton sighs. "What do you think?" He asks as he offers me some pizza.
"My old dog was named Rue." I say as I take a slice.
"Well then Rue it is." Ashton laughs softly. "Rue." Ashton says and the dog looks straight up at him. "See, perfect name."
I laugh and play with my shoelaces. "What's your favorite color?" Ashton asks.
"Aqua, why?" I answer.
"Mines red. Let's each of us as a question and we both have to answer it." Ashton explains.
"Okay," I say as I turn to face him. "What's your middle name?"
"Fletcher." Ashton mumbles.
"I like that name." I smile. "Mines Marie."
"Favorite candy?" Ashton asks. "Mines gummy bears."
"Same." I smile. "What's your favorite place to go? Mine is Starbucks 'cause come on, who doesn't like Starbucks." I laugh.
Ashton laughs. "Same, what's the thing you believe your best at? Mine I believe is making a mess."
I laugh. "Mine would be painting I believe. Can you do a hair flip?" I ask. "And if so demonstrate it."
Ashton whips his hair back and forth and I laugh. I do the same and all my hair falls in my face. Ashton laughs. "What do you want to do when your older? I of course want to be in the band forever and become famous."
"I want to play the piano but not like classical music, I want to play like punk rock music with other bands on tour and stuff." I explain. "Are you a virgin? I am." I smile and make a goofy face. "The ugly virgin."
"Hey hey hey, your not ugly." Ashton says. I smile slightly. "I'm a virgin too."
"Nuh uh." I say.
"Yuh huh." Ashton mimics me.
"You're seriously a virgin? Just wow." I say in disbelief. I can't believe that one if the hottest guys in school is a virgin.
"What makes it so surprising?" He asks.
"It's just I can't believe that one of the hot-" I cut off immediately, realizing what I said.
"You think I'm hot?" Ashton asks, a smile spreading across his face.
"I never said that." I blush.
"I'm believe you just said, 'I just can't believe that one of the hottest and sexiest wonderful guys in shook is a virgin." Ashton says in a girl voice.
"I clearly did not say that." I say.
Ashton laughs. "But you did say I was hot." He whispers. I nod and Ashton moves closer to me. His lips crash against mine and at first I just sit there in shock but our lips move in sync. I know it's so cheesy but I can feel the sparks between us like no one else. It's so perfect.
Ashton slowly releases from the kiss and I stare at him in disbelief. I can't believe that I just kissed him. Well the fact that he kissed me first. "I.. I um. I'm gonna go." I say as I stand up.
"Elli, no don't leave." Ashton says as he stands up.
"I'll see you at school tomorrow." I whisper as a tear falls from my eye. I walk back downstairs and outside. I can't believe that I would think that kiss meant something. He probably just did it to make me happy.
When I get home I jog into my room. I lock the door behind me and sit on my bed. I look at the clock and see that it's 9:30pm. I stare at the top of the dresser at a small little box. I shouldn't do it just over this. I just sit there and cry and cry.
Tomorrow is going to be horrible.
