Ashton looks at me and my face turns red. He just laughs. "Don't worry about them," he said with a wink. I look down and scratch my head. "Heh..." I half laugh. He's so cute... The period 5 bell goes and I pick up my bag. I began walking to class with Ashton trailing behind me. "We both have music," I say excitedly. He smiles at me and stopped at the music room door. "Ladies first," he says with a grin. He offers for me to go inside. He's such a gentleman.
My music teacher invites me over to her table, signalling her hand. I walk over with Ashton behind me. "Hi willow, today we are having a free period. Please feel free to play any instrument," she says politely. I smile at her. "Thank you Tracy," I say back and begin walking towards the guitar. Ashton walks over to the drums and sits on the stool. I pick the guitar and strum a G chord lightly. I breathe slowly. I love music. It helps me forget about things, the bullying. I strum the chord to my favourite song and begin singing with a gentle voice. I close my eyes and think about the words.
I give up forever to touch you
Cause I know that you feel me somehow
Your the closest to heaven than I'll ever be
And I don't want to go home right now
And all I can taste is this moment
And all I can breathe is your life
Then sooner or later it's over
I just don't want to miss you tonight
And I don't want the world to see me
Cause I don't think that they'd understand
When everything's made to be broken
I just want you to know who I am
I continue to strum into the next verse and then a hear a soft beat from a drum. I open my eyes and turn my head to see Ashton playing along with the song. I smile at him and close me eyes again.
I slowly finish the song and hold my voice till the last chord. I open my eyes to see Ashton in front of me smiling. I turn red and look down, hoping he wouldn't notice. "Jess... That was the most beautiful thing I have ever heard," he whispered, taking my hand. He kneels down in front of me and stares into my eyes. I stare back into his.... I was so lost onto his eyes, those gorgeous brown with a tint of green eyes... He starts to lean in but a voice stops him.
