I stayed up all night thinking about what I done. That kiss was not supposed to happen like that. I could possibly lose my best friend now. I feel so stupid. I grabbed my pillow and pulled it onto my face.
"Hopefully tomorrow is a lo better than today." I said out loud. I roll over on my bed and grab my camera. I look at all the pictures I took today. Ashton's smile shining in the sun, his eyes glow with happiness. Who would I be without him? I smile to myself and close my eyes. I stat to fall asleep when I hear a knocking on my window. I look at my clock and it's 2 am so it could only mean one thing. Ashton. I walk over and look out the window and I see Ashton waving at me. I smile and open the window.
"What're you doing here?" I laughed as he stumbled through and walked to the bed.
"I couldn't sleep." He said, sitting down. I sat down next to him and leaned my head onto his shoulder.
"I couldn't either." I said.
"I been thinking about that kiss." He said. I looked at him and frowned.
"It was a horrible mistake. I can't believe I did that." I said, rushing my fingers through my hair nervously.
"Oh, yeah it was. I mean it didn't mean anything right?" He said staring at me. God, what is he thinking?
"I'm your best friend. It couldn't of meant anything." I said softly.
"Right. I thought it was ok."
"It was?" I said shocked.
"It happens Kairi. Best friends start to like each other and in a moment they kiss." He smiled at me. Wait what?
"Woah Ashton, it was supposed to be a cheek kiss, nothing more." I said, trying to defend myself.
"I have an idea. Why don't we kiss and see if it feels right? Just so we don't lose each other as friends. I can't imagine that." He said looking down. I thought about it and it doesn't seem so bad. If it works then it works but if not then we forget about it.
"Ok. Just a tiny peck." I said. We scooted closer to each other and leaned in. Our lips slowly touched and I felt electrified. I felt the world freeze and all I thought about was Ashton. Oh no...I like Ashton. This isn't good at all. We part and we gaze into each others eyes. Ashton looks away and takes a deep breath.
"So how do you feel?" He asked me.
"Good." He mumbled.
"I guess we're just great best friends." I chuckled nervously.
"Yeah. You're always gonna be my best friend. Let's forget this ever happened?" He said hugging me. I sighed and hugged him back.
"Yes. It's forgotten." I smiled. But I was really lying. This feeling is so much different now. I never expected this to happen. But I can't lose him as my friend either, which is why I have to lie about my feelings. He grabs my hands and starts singing I'll Be to me.
"Oh you're a goof." I said laughing.
"Well that' what best friends are for." He said still holding my hands.
I felt my heart pound faster and smiled as I knew I would never lose Ashton Irwin.
