30. Ashton Confession
The girls go to the store to get some things fro dinner leaving me and Ashton to start the grill outside. I remember the conversation this morning and decide to ask Ashton, "hey so just out of curiosity, have you and Mia you know done it yet?" he looks up from the grill and sighs, "No man we haven't. Every time we get close she stops and then quickly changes the conversation or leaves the room." He tells me.
"Have you tried talking to her?" I ask him. "yeah I have and she freaked out on me, asking me if I only wanted her for sex. It took a lot of convincing her that no but I decided to drop it because I think I'm in love with her." He responded. We fire up the grill, "you know Kim told me she loved me for the first time at my mother's grave, I said I love you back for the first time since my passed away four years ago,'' I tell him. ''what about those girlfriends that you had? You never said it to them?" he asks me.
I look at him and my eyes start to water, "no. I promised my mom that I would never say them to a girl unless I meant them. My dad would say them all the time to her and he didn't mean them, I mean look at where my mom is, I made a promise to her and I kept it." He walks over to mean and hugs me, I let out small tears and then we turn back to the grill.
