"Dad, I'm home." I said, walking into his room. "Dad? You here?" I asked. "Dad?" I asked. "Rach, where's dad?" I asked. She shrugged. I picked up my phone and called Ashton. No answer. I called my dad's phone. No answer. I ran outside. "Dad?!" I yelled. I looked beyond our street, and saw Ashton's car. I ran to it. Inside, was something I didn't want to see. I dropped to the ground, screaming. Inside the car, was Ashton. Dead.
"Babe! Babe!" Ashton yelled. I woke up, crying. "It's okay. It's just a dream." He said, holding me. "I-it was a-wful." I said between tears. "It's okay. You're okay." He said. "Come on." He said, laying me down next to him.
I woke up, with Ashton holding me against him. "Did you sleep better?" He asked. I nodded. "That's good." He said. I nodded. "I love you so much Ashton." I said. "Awe. Babe. I love you too." He replied. "I am so happy we will spend the rest of our lives together." I said. "I'm happy too." He replied, kissing my head.
"Alright. We have Soundcheck, then we have the show." Luke said. Ashton looked at me and smiled. "We think that Ashley should stay here." Luke said. "What. Why?" Ashton asked. "Babe. It's fine. I can get some work done, and I can rest." I said. He looked at me. "Babe, I don't know. You're almost four months pregnant. What if something goes wrong?" He asked. "I'll be fine." I said. "Alright." Ashton said with a sigh.
"No Frankie. I told you I needed that done today!" I yelled. "I know, and I am sorry." She replied. "That's not good enough. We are behind now." I said. "I can't believe my boss is younger than me." She said. "Excuse me." I said. "You heard me." She said. "I want your office clean by tomorrow. If I find out it's not clean, I will make you clean it." I said, hanging up.
"Lauren. Please, calm down. I told Michael not to give you soda." I said. "I can't!" She yelled. "Lauren." I said. I rolled my eyes. "Mommy. Can you tuck me in?" Jackie asked. I nodded.
"I love you my angel." I said. "I love you too mom." She said. "When is dad coming home?" She asked. "I don't know honey. Soon. I hope." I said. She nodded. "Go to sleep honey. We have a busy day." I said. She rolled over on her side, and I rubbed her back.
I got to the hotel around one in the morning, and Ashley was sound asleep on the couch. I smiled, and changed. I got into bed. Ashley laid there, stomach popping out, and her nose scrunched up.
"Ashton?" She mumbled. "Sorry. Did I wake you?" I asked. "I was awake." She said. I laughed. "Have you been drinking?" She asked. "Me and the guys went out after the show. I only had one." I said. "Okay." She said, snuggling into my chest.
"Ashton." She said. "Yeah." I said. "You really smell." She said. I laughed. "Like beer, sweat, and bar." She said. I laughed. I put my head on her, and rubbed my head on her. "Ew! Ash!" She yelled. "I'll go shower." She said. "Can I come?" I asked. She laughed. "Not when I look like this." She said. I pouted. "No." She said. I got up. "Ashton. Ashton. No. Stop." She said. I got close to her, and took her shirt off. "Ashton!" She yelled, pushing me back.
I laid back in bed with Ashton, who was all showered. "You smell like roses." I said laughing. He looked at me. "That's because I used your body wash." He said. "And that is because you used all of yours." I said.
"We have a whole day off tomorrow. We can relax all day." He said. I smiled. "Traveling. Gotta love it." I said. "C'mon babe. " he said. "I know." I said. "What's wrong?" He asked. I sighed. "I had to fire someone today." I said. "Who?!?" He asked. "Frankie." I replied. "I never liked her." He said. I laughed, and snuggled into his side. "I love you." I said. "I love you too. Go to sleep babe." He said. "I will. You should too." I said. He nodded, and kissed my head.
