That night, Luke drove me back to my house. I didn't want to sleep at his place again. If I couldn't be with Michael, I didn't want to be with his best friend. I sat out in my backyard. The air was cool, and the moon was out. You could see every star in the sky. If only he was here. I laid down in the grass and put my earbuds in. I listened to Michael's playlist, it was perfect. I took a nap outside, listening to it.
Some time later, I feel something touching me. It brushed up against my arm. I opened my eyes and ripped my earbuds out. My jaw dropped and my eyes widened. It was Ashton.
"Hey!" He said, laughing at how shocked I was.
"How did you-"
"You see that house?" He pointed at the house directly behind mine. I nodded. "That's mine. I looked out my window and saw you. Thought ya looked lonely."
I didn't know if I should be angry that he just walked into my yard, or terrified.
"Let's take a walk?" He asked.
"Like I'd go anywhere with you. Get out of my yard." I said angrily.
"But I'm in love with you!" He blurted out. I was in even more shock. What did he just say? He's in love with me?
"What?" I asked.
"Ever since I saw you. It was like love at first sight."
"Well it's too bad that you're an asshole. I love Michael, anyway." I said. He frowned. I kind of felt bad. A little. But why should I? He tried to rape me. I don't know why, but I still felt bad. "Go home, Ashton. We can talk tomorrow."
He got up. "Can I at least have a kiss?"
I looked him straight in the eye, "I really hope you're joking." He walked away with a frown. "Goodnight." And hopped back over his fence. I went back into my house. No one was home, but the car was outside. They weren't coming back for another week, they went on a business trip so no one would catch me.
I didn't have a license, but I had my permit and that was enough for me. I dug through the kitchen drawer and found the spare keys to the yellow Hummer. I walked outside and hopped in. It was dark out, so it was a lot harder to find the hospital. I tried to remember the way that Luke drove me home. I finally found the hospital and walked in. Visiting hours were over, so I kind of had to sneak in. I almost got caught, but almost no one was around. I found Michael's room and let myself in. He was awake, watching the tiny tv in the corner in the room. "Hey, Mikey."
"Come here." He opened his arms for me to collapse into. He was so warm. "How are you doing? Is everything okay?"
"Yeah, I just want to go home."
"Yeah I wish you could."
There was a long pause.
"Let's go." He said.
"No, you have to stay here."
"Well, no matter what you say, I'm leaving right now." He got up and changed back into his once bloody clothes. The nurses had washed them for him.
We snuck out and got into the car.
"Where are we sleeping?" He asked.
"Well I'll sleep at my house. You'll sleep at yours." I joked.
"Sorry, not happening. My place?"
I laughed. "Of course."
We drove back and went to his house. He took a shower and I cleaned up his room a little. I found a notebook, buried under a pile of clothes. I opened it up and flipped through the pages, figuring it would be a school book. It was full of song lyrics. Under each title it would say, "5 Seconds of Summer." He really did have a band.
He opened his bathroom door, and I tossed the book back to where I found it. "Hey." He said.
I looked up, but he was completely naked. "It's a nice look on you." I bit my lip and I could feel myself staring to blush. "It's only fair you do the same."
"Really? Not even for your boyfriend? Your boyfriend that just got hit by a truck?"
"Fine." I wasn't annoyed. But I didn't want to get naked. I was so insecure. But, Ashton saw me naked. So, it's only right that I let Michael, right?
