Songs of chapter:
night changes - one direction
Once in a lifetime - one direction
After i had already drank most of my coffee, i found him staring at me. It kind of made me feel uncomfortable. I think he must've noticed.
"So..." He said awkwardly
I shifted in my seat and gazed outside. It was beginning to darken out. I could see the dark clouds threating rain.
"Talk." He said
"About what?" I asked
"Talk about yourself." He said.
I stared at him for a moment. People usually don't want to learn about me. I smiled a little and answered:
"So. I'm Autumn Annabelle Hood. I love music, gymnastics and dancing. I love London. I'd like to see the world..." I stated and slowed down to look at his eyes.
They where just so beautiful.. I could see them light up as i looked at him. Oops! I should probably continue!
"Umm.. And uhh... I've been doing gymnastics since i was 5..." And then i stopped.
"Tell me about yourself." He said
"Uhh.. I just did..." I replied awkwardly
"No, i mean don't tell me what you do, but tell me about you." He said emphasizing the word 'you'.
"Well.. There's nothing to tell really... I'm not very interesting.." I said awkwardly while staring at the table.
"Autumn.. I doubt that." He said with a lower voice that made my body tingle.
"Well... I like dark nights and dark rainy days... They just kind of... You know, calm me... When i was about thirteen, i used to stay up till' like 2am just listening to music and thinking about life while watching the sky... I loved watching the moon and stars... Well i still do, and i still do those things." i say awkwardly. I've never told this to anyone.
Ashton looked at me smiling. i felt like we connected somehow. I know, i know, it sounds cliché, but it's true. I felt fireworks exploding inside of myself...
We continued to chat for about an hour untill we finally decided to leave. We had got to know each other well. We had chatted about music and things. He grabbed my hand as we stepped out. His touch made my stomach feel like there where butterflies inside... I felt sparks from his touch... But i dougt he likes me...
As we stepped out, we noticed it was raining. More like pouring actually. His car was quite far away since we went out from the entrance further away.
"Errm.. W-We can go back from inside if you umm.. W-want..." He stuttered with his words.
But i just chuckled at him and stepped into the rain. Ahh. I just love the rain. The rain was quite cold but i didn't care. The air was still warm anyway. Ashton laughed and came next to me.
"I thought i was the only one...." He said with a smile
"I told you that i liked rain." i reminded him
"I knew you liked the rain, but i didn't know if you liked to stay in it or not."
I smiled. He likes rain too. Wow.
We had decided to go to the park nearby. The rain had stopped and we where both pouring wet. We had gone to the park with his car. We where sitting on the swings panting after running around the park. It was dark. A calming dark. Suddenly he got up and grabbed my hand. He started walking with me.
"Where are we going?" I asked him
"To a place that i love." He answered.
As we walked the wind got up. It was cold and we were both wet. My teeth started to chatter. Suddenly i felt something warm around me. It was his coat. He had grabbed it from his car and it was dry and warm.
"But Ashton you'll be co-" i said but he cut me off by stopping and lifting my chin up with his fingers.
"Shh." He said in a deep and tempting voice that sent me shivers.
"I'd rather freeze to death than see a beautiful girl be cold." He said quietly while staring at my eyes while i blushed.
He's so beautiful. It was a magical moment staring at eachothers eyes, but he ofcourse snapped me back to reality by placing his arm over my shoulder and holding me tight as we continued walking. I could already see the stars in the sky as we walked peacefully...
We arrived on top of a hill. The land was made of soft grass. Everything was quiet and peaceful. He laid me down on the grass after laying down himself. The starry sky reflected beautifully on his eyes. We laid on our backs staring at the stars and moon. This was so magical... I loved staring at the sky. He was close to me holding my hand. I felt it brushing against my hand every time he moved. The whole time there i felt sparks because of his touch.
I suddenly saw him gazing over me. I looked at his eyes and we just stared at eachother for a while.
"We should probably go back.." He sighed
"Yeah", i mumbled, "Calums probably shitting his pants.." I mumbled jokingly receiving a giggle from ashton.
"Hey!", Ashton managed to say between cute giggles,"No swearing!"
As we stepped out of his car and walked to my front door everything was silent. The only thing allowing us to see was the moon and ofcourse the stars. I was about to open the door with my keys, but he stopped me by hugging me from behind and turning me around. I stared at him. He looked perfect when the moon light hit his perfect looking face.
"Listen....Autumn... I had a great time today.. And i erm.. Was umm thinking if we- us- i mean you and i could um... Hang out again soon..?" He asked nervously while biting his lip.
Awww he was nervous. But he looked hot while biting his lip.
"Me too, and ofcourse." I replied while giving him a tight hug. I breathed in his scent. He smelled good. We stayed like that for a minute, and then i opened the door.
I turned around and saw a big smile on his face.
"Goodnight Ashton." I said
"Goodnight Autumn." He replied and i shut the door.
I leant on the door and slided down till i was sitting. I was smiling to myself. He was the most amazing person ever. Yes. Now i know. Guys can be beautiful too...
I walked up the stairs as quietly as i could into my room. It was already 3am. I slowly opened my door and locked it behind me. I turned around to see a not so happy Calum in my room. He scared the living shit out of me.
"Dear god Calu-" i was saying but he interrupted me.
"Autumn why where you out with Ashton?" He bluntly said.
"We went to grab some coffee 'cause we where bored." I said
"So nothing else happened." He asked while crossing his arms and raising an eyebrow.
"Well.." I said
"WHAT?!? DID YOU GUYS HAV-" he shouted but i quickly cut him off:
"NO! Shhh! Dad's sleeping!", i whisper-shouted, "i meant that after the coffee we went to the park and for a walk to get some fresh air." I said
"Oh...",He replied, "The only reason why i'm going to let this go because i trust Ashton. He's my good mate. Now go to sleep it's already 3am." He said
I didn't try to correct him because i know that he's protective over me.
"Thank you Calum." I said while hugging him and giving him a kiss on the cheek.
I quickly got ready for bed (brushed teeth, shower, removed make up, changed.. Etc..), and jumped in. Suddenly i screeched as i felt someone next to me.
That someone in my bed grabbed me. It was just like my ex Jack... When he raped me...
I started to breathe quickly and moved away from that person.
"Shhh. It's just me.. I'm sorry..." A familiar voice said.
Oh thank god it was just Calum. I jumped into his arms and snuggled into his chest. A few tears escaped my eyes. He already knew about my ex-boyfriend Jack who didn't wanna let go (A/N haha titanic refrence. Sorry i'm stupid). He had broke into my house and raped me, and also abused me. I was stuck in that house for 3 days. He didn't let me leave. I was too scared to try to escape since he hurt me.
But i was safe now in Calum's arms. He rubbed up and down my arm calming me down. I felt my eyes getting heavy and i drifted off to sleep listening to Calum's gentle breaths and heartbeat...
A/N Wow. First proper long chapter. Thank's for all the support ☺️😘
