I woke up on an empty couch. "Babe?" I asked. "Babe!" I yelled, getting up, and searching around the room. The bus is big. Especially when you are in the back room.
I got up, and walked out into the bunks. All the guys were sleeping. I walked out into the front of the bus. And standing there, looking in the fridge, was Ashley.
"Hey." I whispered, as the bunk door closed. "Oh, hey. Sorry. I got hungry." She whispered. "I was scared. I didn't know where you went." I said.
Mikey walked out of the bunks, holding his head, and his eyes droopy. "I have such a hangover." He said. I laughed. "I tried to tell you not to drink so much." I said. "Don't talk to loud. Damn." He said.
"Hey guys. Uh. Where's Jackie?" Ashley asked. "Oh. She slept with Calum last night." I said. "With his drunk ass." She said. "He wasn't that drunk. He had as much as I did." I said. "Alright." She said.
"Hey ash... Whoa." I said, getting dizzy. "You okay?" He asked, getting up, and walking to my side. "Yeah. Fine. I just got dizzy." I said. "That's been happening a lot." He said. "I know. I'm fine though." I replied.
"Ash! Wanna talk to Niall!" Luke yelled. "Niall!" Ashton yelled, running out, knocking me over. "Ouch. Thanks ash!" I yelled. "Oh! Babe! Sorry!" Ashton yelled, running back. He tried to help me up, but I denied it. "I got it! I got it!" I yelled, getting up myself. "Are you-" "I'm fine ash." I snapped, sitting down.
Michael came into the back room, and sat down next to me. "Hey." He said. "I thought you had a hangover." I said. "It only lasts a little while." He said. I nodded. "You okay?" He asked. I nodded. "Come on. I know something is wrong." He said. "Look, I'm four and a half months pregnant. I have extra weight on me. I'm tired. I'm hungry. And I... Never mind." I said. "Do you wanna eat? You can come out." He said. I nodded, and he took my hand, and walked me out into the kitchen.
"Luke! I told you to save food for Ashley." Michael yelled. "Oh. Right." He said. "And Lauren. And Jackie." I snapped. "Damn. What bit your ass?" Calum asked. I gave him a stare. "Do you wanna be pregnant?" I asked. "I would like to try. If I was a girl." He replied.
"Mom! Luke ate my breakfast!" Jackie yelled. "I know honey. He ate mine too." I said. "Dad has some toast." I said. She smiled, and sat on Ashton's lap.
"Hi little girl." Niall said, on the computer. Jackie hid in my chest. "That's Niall." I said to her. She looked up. "Mom! That's Niall Horan!" She yelled. We all laughed. "Rachel." Ashley said. I nodded. "Niall, this is Jackie. Jackie is Ashley, my fiancés daughter." I said. "How old is your fiancé? Thirty?" He asked. Ashley got in the screen. "No, I'm twenty." She said. He looked down.
Michael and me were sitting in the back room, while everyone else was sleeping. Jackie was on the ground playing with blocks. "Hey jack. Come here." I said. She got up, and walked over to me. I picked her up, and put her on my lap. "How would you feel, if we went home earlier?" I asked. "But. Dad said we would stay for longer time." She replied. "I know, but dad is gonna be busy, and I feel like we are gonna get in the way." I replied.
"I wanna stay. With Mikey." She said, smiling at him. I smiled. "Okay." I replied, putting her down. "You aren't getting in the way." Michael said. "I know. But, I feel like Ashton really isn't paying attention to me, or jackie. Even Lauren." I said. He looked at me confused. "He ran to the front of the bus today, and knocked me down. I was standing right in front of me. He was paying any attention." I said. "Jackie fell yesterday. He was standing right there. He did nothing. Lauren has homework for school, he sits with her, she needs help, I have to help. He isn't helping at all." I said. "It's just the time of the tour we're at." He said. "I just don't know if this was a good idea." I said. "It was ash. I promise you. It was." Michael said.
The bus stopped, and we got to a hotel. Jackie was asleep, so I picked her up. "Ugh! You're heavy." I said, as I walked slowly out of the bus. "Oh, here." Michael said, taking Jackie from me. "Thank you." I replied.
"Hey babe, why aren't you in the room with me?" Ashton asked, walking into Michael's room. "Lauren and I switched rooms. She wanted to he with you." I replied. "But, the bed is big enough for two people." He said. "I'll give you two a moment." Michael said, walking out of the room.
"What's wrong? Did I do something?" Ashton asked. "Ash, when will I go home?" I asked. "Four months? Why?" He asked. "Who's your best friend?" I asked. "Mikey." He replied. "What do you play?" I asked. "Drums." He replied. "Do you like horses?" I asked. "No." He replied. "Do you care about me?" I asked. He looked at me. "Of course I do. What kind of question is that?" He said. "Ashton. Do you love me." I said. "Of course." He replied. "Do you care about me." I said again. "Of course." He replied.
"What do you love more, me or your band?" I asked. He hesitated for a minute. "Thats what I thought." I said, walking away. "Ashley." He said. "Of course I love you more. You're the love of my life." He said. "You're not showing me that you love me. You're showing me, that you love your band more than anything else." I said. "I'm sorry." He said. "All I want, is some help for you. Michael is always by my side, but you're never there. You're never there to help me with homework, help me with Jackie. Help me get up when I get knocked down." I said. "All I want, is for you to be like the person you were before. And if that means we don't get married... We don't get married. I want it like before. Like our first outing together as friends. Came to Starbucks where I worked, and walked me home from there. I want that again. I want that Ashton back." I said. "He is still here." He said. "Where? I don't see him. Because all I see, is a guy, who plays the drums. I don't see Ashton. I don't see my child's father. I don't see him anywhere. I don't see the amazingly funny person." I said. "I'm sorry. I really am. And I should be there for you. I have been planning things, and it's taking all of my time. I've been planning something for you. And now that I finished it, I'll be by you for good. And, if you don't wanna get married, just yet, keep the ring. And we will get married when you want to. When you're ready." He said. I smiled. "Now, I can sleep with you," I said, kissing him.
I took off the ring, and put it back in the box. "You'll use that soon." I said, with a smile. He smiled, and kissed me. "Did anyone tell you how beautiful you are?" He asked. "Did anyone tell you how handsome you are? Even with half your hair shaved." I said. He laughed. "I love you AshleyAnn-Marie Green." He said. "I love you, Ashton Fletcher Irwin." He said. "Shut up guys." Lauren said. We both laughed.
Don't hate me! Don't hate me for not having them get married!
