I have been waiting for a few hours with my aunt and uncle in the waiting room. Then finally the doctor came and got us. He took us to the room where my mother and father were. Both of them smiling like crazy.
"Come here Michael." My mother said.
I walked to the side of her bed. My father picked me up and sat me next to me mother. I looked at her and then down at her arms. There was something in a blanket in her arms.
"Michael met your new baby sister." She said showing her to me.
I looked at her and smiled.
"Whats her name?" I asked.
"Her name is..... Hazel. Hazel Iris Clifford."
*13 years later*
Today we are moving to our new house. Mom says there are two reasons why we are moving. One is because of dad and his work and the second reason she would not tell me. We finally got to the new house. It was huge. I think I am going to love it here.
*3 days later*
We finally got unpacked and could finally rest. Mother came upstairs and told me that we were going shopping for school things. I walked out of my room and saw my baby sister all dressed in jean shorts, with a black tank-top, and a light and dark purple plaid shirt that was left unbutton. She had her pretty blonde hair down. She smiled at me and I smiled back at her. She came over to me hugged me and then we both walked downstairs together.
"You two ready?" Our mother asked.
We both got in the back seat together and rode all the way to the mall. Once we got there we went into different stores getting school supplies and some cloths too. While I was looking at some cloths I ran into someone.
"Hey man, I am so sorry." I said.
"Hey its cool. You don't look like you are from around here."
"No, I just moved here."
"Ah, well that is cool what school you go too?"
"I am going to be going to Norwest Christian College."
"Me too. Whats your name?"
"Nice to met you Michael. I'm Ashton."
"Same to you too Ashton."
"I'll see you at school."
*3 Years Later*
School was finally out for today. I was walking home when a car pulled up and slowly followed me. I looked at them and saw four people. Two girls and two guys. I rolled my eyes and kept walking. I looked to make sure I had all of my books that I carry in front of me. I then heard doors shutting to a car. I peaked over my shoulder just a tiny bit and saw them getting out and walking behind me. I started to walk a bit faster but could feel them getting even closer to me. Finally I felt a hand on my shoulder. I looked at my shoulder and then he stopped me. I had a very scared look on my face.
"Where are you going orphan?" The guy who stopped me said.
"Why can't you just leave me alone."
"Because we love messing with you."
"Yeah, well I'm sick of it go pick on someone else for a change."
He grabbed my books and threw them on the ground. I went to go and grabbed them but they grabbed the hood to my sweatshirt and pulled me back.
"Where do you think you are going?"
I pulled away from them and started to get my things. Then one of the girls jumped on top of me causing me to drop my things, scrap my arms and knees, and also I scarped my left cheek on the curve. I turned to look up at her and she punched me on my left cheek that was scraped.
"Stay down and don't get up." She said.
She finally got off me and I just laid there. I watched them get into there car and drive away. I looked down and could feel the tears coming. I slowly sat up and picked up my books. I finished walking home. I saw that Michael was home. I walked inside and saw three other boys along with Michael.
"Hey Mikey." I said hugging him.
"Why are you so late?"
"Oh just left school later. I was talking to a teacher."
"What happened to your face and arm?" The boy with black hair asked.
Michael slowly turned my head and saw the huge scrap on my face. He then looked at my arms and then he saw my legs.
"Oh my god Hazel. What happened?" He asked with a worried look.
"I just tripped and fell."
"Hazel, this looks like you got beat up. Not tripped."
"I tripped and that is it. I am fine." I said walking upstairs.
I walked to my room and into the bathroom. There was a big scar on my cheek with a big bruise around it. I rolled my eyes and I cleaned up my arms and my legs. I then went to lay in my bed. I worked on my homework.
"Need help?" someone asked me.
I looked up at my door and saw a boy with blonde hair. He was wearing a black shirt with faded red jeans.
"Nah, I'll be fine." I say looking back down at my homework.
"What are you working on?" He asked kneeling down next to my bed.
"Homework for a writing class that I am taking."
"Of that is fun."
"Can I read?" He asked.
"Sure." I say looking at him.
I gave him the piece of paper and he read it. Once he was done reading he looked up at me. I looked right into the eyes of this boy. I then got lost into his eyes. I loved the colors of his eyes. He had Hazel/Brown eyes. The way the light shined down on his eyes was so cute.
"It's really good." He said breaking the thought.
"Thanks." I say grabbing it.
As I grabbed it I accidentally touched his hand. I looked up at him as he did too. I gave him a small smile and put my things away.
"So I kinda have a question." He asked sitting on my bed.
He turned to me and grabbed my hands.
"Sure. What's up?" I said.
"What really happened?" He said looking up and into my eyes again.
"Oh come on....."
"Hazel. I know you didn't just trip because you have a huge bruise on your cheek and if you tripped you would of caught yourself with your hands and but it seems like you couldn't."
"Whats your name?"
"It's nothing to worry about Ashton. Please I don't want you getting into this mess now."
"Oh come on Hazel. I don't want to see you getting hurt like this."
"Ashton, why are you saying this? I barley..... I mean we barley know each other."
"Well, here then lets get to know each other. Give me your phone."
I looked at him weird and then give him my phone. After a little bit he gave me it back. I saw that he put his number in and his name as 'Ash ;) ' I laughed a little bit and looked back at him.
"Now will you tell me what really happened?"
"I guess..... As long as it is a secret between you and me only."
"I get bullied at school. Ever since I was little I was picked on. We then moved here and it was because of my father and also because I was being bullied. We moved here and I thought I could start a new life turns out if you are a new kid you get picked on. So I got picked on. It got worse and worse. I stayed a lot in the office. They would fight with me and I would do nothing because I am just so weak. Then today they kinda beat me up. I was thrown to the ground and then one of them punched me. I really don't know what to do. I am so scared to go to school. Even walk home because Michael leaves way before me to go get you guys or something so I have no ride. I don't know what to do Ashton. I don't want to be here anymore." I say with tears in my eyes.
"Oh Hazel. Don't say that." Ashton says getting closer to me.
He pulled me close to him, he put his arms around my waist and hugged me. I hugged him back. I didn't want this hug to end. I hugged him tighter and he did the same. He pulled me very close to him. He was a really nice guy. I really like Ashton.
"Hazel come eat." Michael yelled for me.
I pulled away from Ashton and looked at him. He wiped away my tears and I smiled at him.
"Come on. Let's go eat."
Ashton said getting up and putting his hand out. I grabbed his hand and we walked downstairs. Once we got down there and I saw Michael I pulled my hand away from Ashton. I did not want him to think that we are something. Michael is a very nice guy but he is very protective which helped me in a lot of things. He helped me a lot from going to the hospital for somethings and helping people leave me alone but he does not know that they are my bullies. He just thinks that they were playing a game or something. Which is good because he does not need to worry about them too.
Ashton looked at me weird and I looked at him then at Michael. I looked back at him and he nodded. We all sat down at the table and ate our supper.
After supper I was washing dishes. The boys were in the living room watching something. I felt a hand on each of my shoulders. I turned my head a little bit and saw Ashton. I smiled at him. He then wrapped his arms around my shoulders and hugged me. My smile grew bigger. I felt warm, I felt safe with him. Wait why am I saying this? I barely know Ashton but I have been having this weird feeling in my stomach. Ashton turned me around and I looked at him.
"Hug me." He said with a cute face.
"But my hands are wet."
"I don't care. Give me a hug."
I put my arms around him and gave him a quick hug.
"What are you doing?" He asked me.
"I have to get the dishes done."
"Fine then we will finish our hug later."
"Okay." I say laughing.
Ashton grabbed a cloth and dried off the dishes for me. Once we were done I went to the living room and sat down by Michael. He put his arm around me and hugged me sideways.
"Hows my little sis doing?" He asked.
"Fine. How about you?"
"Well, that is good. Hey where is mom and dad?"
"Dad left today to go on his trip and mom is working late shift so us boys are going to be taking care of you."
"Oh fun." I say being very sarcastic.
"Oh Hazel." Michael says tickling me.
"Mikey stop." I say laughing trying to get away from him.
"Ashton help." I say reaching my hand for him.
Michael stopped and looked up at him. I looked at Michael then back at Ashton.
"Pick." Michael said.
"What?" Ashton said with a confused face.
"Pick. Hazel or me?"
"For what?" He said laughing his cute laugh.
"Yeah Ashton." I say going over to his.
I sat on his lap and hug him. He hugged me back and kissed my neck.
"Ash." I whisper to him.
"Sorry." he said lightly laughing.
"Calum?" Michael asked.
"I chose Mikey."
"That is what I am talking about. Luke?"
"Three against two. Thanks boys." Michael said.
"See they love me better." I say sticking my tounge out at Michael.
He did it right back to me and I just laughed. Still sitting on Ashton's lap, I cuddled more and more into him.
"What game?" Calum asked.
"I don't know." Michael said.
"Hide & Seek In The Dark.." I say while laughing.
"Really?" Michael says.
"Yes really. Now everyone foot in the middle." I say.
Everyone put a foot in the middle and I did my thing to see who would be it. Calum was the first person it. We all turned off the light except for the living room light. I ran upstairs and hid in my closet behind my cloths and stuff. I heard someone else come in here too. I couldn't see them but I could see a shape of a black figure right near me. My eyes grew big and I thought I might ask who it was.
"Who is in here with me?" I asked.
"Here I come." I heard Calum yell.
"Hazel it's me." the voice said.
I knew that voice from anywhere. Ashton.
"Ashton?" I whispered.
"Shhh." he said putting a hand over my mouth.
I heard walking outside of the closet door. Then the door opened. I grabbed Ashton's wrist. I heard someone looking around and then they shut the door and left. I then relaxed and turned to Ashton. He pulled his hand away from my mouth.
"Sorry just didn't want to get caught." He said.
"It's fine." I say smiling even those he can't even see me.
I slowly felt my hand dropping on Ashton's wrist. My hand dropped on top of Ashton's. I felt his hand shift and hold my hand. I started to grin at our actions. I felt Ashton slowly intertwine our fingers. I slide over to him and laid my hand on his shoulder. After a little bit I heard someone yell that they were found. Ashton and I got out of the closet and we all met downstairs. Luke was found and it. Then we were off again hiding. I ran to the kitchen and got up on top of the fridge and hid in the back. Yeah, there is plenty of room for me to get up here. I was Luke come in and then leave right away. I saw someone come running in quietly. I saw that is was Ashton. What a cheater.
"Ashton." I said.
He looked around trying to figure out who was talking.
"Ashton. Up here." I say getting his attention.
He looked up and smiled. I smiled back and then heard someone coming.
"Ashton. Hid in the closet up front."
He nodded his head and ran up front. I slid back and saw Michael and Luke walking to the living room. I got out of my hiding spot. Then they yelled saying someone was found.
"Can we play a different game?" Michael asked.
"Like what?" I say.
"That's not a game."
"Please." He said with a sad face.
"Fine." I say laughing.
I grabbed five blankets and put them on the living room floor for who ever wants one can take one. I grabbed one and put it where I was sitting. Michael and Luke were making popcorn and Calum was getting drinks. I thought I could help Ashton pick out movies.
"Hey you should pick scary movies." I said walking over to him.
"Scary?" He asked with a confused look.
"Yeah. I love scary movies."
He grabbed a few scary movies and we put the first one in. It was You're Next. I have never seen it so I was excited. I went and grabbed the remote and then sat in my spot. I got under the warm blanket and waited for everyone. Michael, Luke, and Calum came in. Michael handed me a bowl of popcorn.
"Thanks Michael." I said smiling at him.
"Yup." He said smiling back. I put the bowl in my lap.
Calum handed me a coke.
"Yup. Michael said you would want a coke."
"Yup." I say smiling again.
The movie was on the main menu. Everyone got seated and ready for the movie. Luke turned off all of the lights so it was very dark in the house with the only light of the T.V. I went and sat on the couch that was far away. I wanted to sit by Ashton so we could maybe cuddle or something and I know Michael would not care because he is in front of me. I was on the couch all by myself but then Ashton came and sat by me. I could feel myself getting all happy. I pressed play on the movie and started to eat my popcorn. I looked over at Michael and he rolled his eyes at Ashton's actions. I looked at him weird but then shook it off. I started to watch the movie. I put my feet to the side and my popcorn on the ground.
I really liked the movie until this really gross scary part came and I jumped so high. I then saw that I was holding Ashton's shirt. I looked up at him and he looked down at me.
"Sorry." I said letting go.
"Your fine. You okay?"
"Yeah, that part just scared me."
"Ahh I see. Here come here. You wont get scared anymore." He said pulling me close to him.
I could feel my face warm up. I cuddle up on to his side.
"You cold?" I asked him.
"Yeah right." I say pulling the blanket so we were sharing.
*3 movies later*
Michael still hasn't saw that Ash and I were cuddling. Once the last movie was over Luke, Calum, and Michael were all sleeping. I was just about to pass out when someone picked me up. I slowly opened my eyes and saw Ashton carrying me. I usually don't like when people pick me up because I feel like I am too heavy and yeah. I saw where Ashton was taking me. He gently placed me in bed and covered me up. I saw him start to walk away but I grabbed his hand. He turned around and looked at me.
"Stay with me..... Please." I say trying to look at him.
I let go of his hand and slide over so he could lay with me.
"But what about....."
"Please. I don't care about what he says."
Ashton got under the covers and turned to me. I cuddled up to him to stay warm because that night was a cold night. Then I passed out.
I woke up and felt someone in bed with me. I looked up and saw Ashton and then I remembered last night. I slowly got out of bed and got some cloths. I went into the bathroom, shut the door and turned on the water in the shower. I put my i-pod on the deck and played Thinking Out Loud By: Ed Sheeran. Then I hopped into the shower.
When I got out changed and everything I walked out to the room and I say Ashton still sleeping. He was so cute when he was sleeping. Wait no. No Hazel you can't fall for your brothers band mate. Uh he is cute but there is no way would could be together. Im to ugly and fat.
I walked out of my room and downstairs to the other three boys still sleeping. I rolled my eyes and decided to wake up Michael.
"Mikey. Mikey wake up. It is almost 10 o'clock." I say slightly rocking him.
"Michael." I copy back.
"Fine im up."
"Thank you. You wake up the boys."
"Okay." He said rubbing his eyes.
"Hey I am going to go out and get something. You want something?"
"Sure. You know what I like."
"Okay what about the boys?"
"I'll text you that. Here take this since you are getting it for the boys." Michael said handing me 40 dollars.
"Oh okay. Thanks Michael make sure you text. Oh and I have to go to the store so I will be out longer."
"Sounds good." Luke then started to wake up.
"Maybe you should take Luke with you." Michael said.
"Get to know him."
"Are you trying to get us to date?"
"No. No. I just thought you could get to know my friends and maybe be friends."
"Oh okay. I guess I can take him. I might just get us all lunch since it is 10:30 and he might take a bit."
"Okay." Michael said laughing.
I went upstairs and got my phone and it's case. I put the money in my case/wallet. I slipped on some jean shorts, a navy blue and white stripped shirt, and I slipped on my white converse. I then walked out of my room. I shut my door so no one could wake up Ashton. I walked downstairs and Luke was ready.
"Wow. You get ready fast." I say walking up to Luke.
"Yeah. I hate being one of those slow people."
"Me too." I say smiling.
I stood over next to Luke.
"Bye Michael. We are leaving." I yell to Michael who was in the living room.
"Okay. See Yeah soon." he yelled back.
I grabbed my keys that were hanging up on the hook and walked out with Luke. We go to the store first. As we were walking up and down the isle Luke started to ask me these questions.
"Hey do you like Ashton?"
"Because. I can tell he likes you."
"Me? No. He can pick any girl and he picks me?"
"No. I don't believe you."
"Because I am not pretty. I ugly and fat why would he chose me and anyways we barley know each other."
"So. I saw you two cuddling on the couch."
I stopped pushing the buggy and looked at him.
"What?" He said looking at me.
"So do you think that this would be good?" I ask trying to change subjects.
"No." I say looking at him.
"I mean I don't want to talk about it." I say moving again.
We continue to shop and talk. I am so glad that he dropped that whole Ashton thing. Once we were done shopping we went to McDonalds. Michael texted me saying what everyone wanted. I ordered for everyone but Luke ordered for himself. After paying we had to wait for our food.
"So lets get to know each other." Luke said.
"Twenty Question Game?"
"Sure. You start."
"Okay. How tall are you?"
"5'4. Full name."
"Luke Robert Hemmings. Favorite Color."
"Blue. How old are you?"
"18. Best friends?"
"Done have any. Closet person to you?"
"I can't chose. Just the three boys. Been in love?"
"Nope. Something that changed your life?"
"You and Michael moving here. Look for in a guy?"
"Cute, Adorable, funny, nice, kind, can talk to about anything, fun to be around, Things like that. Birthday?"
"July 16, 1996. Favorite band/singer?"
"All Time Low and One Direction. Favorite Ice Cream?"
"Cookies and Cream. Favorite Movie?"
"Sinister. Favorite Animal?"
"Penguin. Who do you miss?"
"Um..... Ashton. Any Siblings?"
"Yes, two brothers. Do you like to dance?"
"I love to dance. Do you have pets?"
"Yes, a dog. If you were granted three wishes, what would they be and why?"
"To be a singer like my brother because I love to sing. My second one would be to save all the animals. Like dogs who have no home. I am an animal person and can't stay to see a poor animal got threw that. All animals deserve a second chance. My third wish would be to have someone love me and to be safe. Okay so last question..... Um..... If you were in a band what would you be?"
"I would be maybe a lead singer and play guitar."
After we were done our number was called. We went up got it and left. I drove home and gave everyone there things.
After the 20 question game. I started worrying about Hazel. Once we started eating she went upstairs and ate. I still saw that Ashton was not down here. So she must be going to take his to him. I thought I would talk to Michael about Hazel.
"Hey Michael. Can we talk about Hazel?" I asked looking at him.
Calum looked at me and then at Michael.
"Um..... Sure. But why?"
This is going to be a long story.
