51. Tally.

Chapter 47.

I've been up for a couple hours now. Michael said he had to go because some family was getting together at his house for dinner. Of course he invited me to come but i declined because I knew i'd probably get an anxiety attack from the new people. And hey who likes anxiety attacks right? Well yeah, I'm pretty sure no one does.

I decided i would go check what uncle Gump was doing. I opened up my bedroom door and started to walk downstairs. I went into the kitchen. He's not in here. There is something on the table though. He probably has another tour. I walked over to the table and picked up the folded paper. I opened it up to discover it was a note.

'Hey sweetheart. I hope all is well. I went into your room about an hour ago to say goodbye and you were asleep. I didn't want to wake you. Anyway, I'm going for a tour, all over oz. I will be back in 9 days... I think. Maybe 11. Im not too sure. But guess who its with?! One of your favourite bands. All time low! Cool right? Yeah. Well be good. I love you. I asked Luke to make sure you are taking your pills, i gave them to him because the doctor doesn't want you to have control over them. Okay. I think this note is long enough now. Okay I love you. I will call you soon.

Xoxo Gump.'

Great.

It really sucks.

First my parents die, in a car accident that i should have died in too.

Then I move to Australia. (Well thats not bad. I didn't have any friends back home anyway.)

Then, I am diagnosed with severe depression and almost kill myself.

And then, Gump is rarely here.

I went back upstairs to my room. I flopped on my bed and took my phone from my pocket. I unlocked it with my sinple passcode and started a new message.

To: Lukas

Hey. Gump is gone again. You know that though. I just wanted to see wanted to see what you were up to.

Xx

A few minutes later my phone went off.

From: Lukas

Hey. Yeah I heard. Sorry. Ash and Calum are over we are writing some stuff. We are in my basement. No one but us are here... My window is unlocked ;)

Xx

I giggled quietly to myself. I got up of my bed and opened my window, I leaned over and opened up his window. I could hear quiet guitar strumming.

I smiled and went downstairs to his basement. I saw Luke and Calum sitting on a couch and Ashton was on the other couch. I took a seat beside Ash.

"Hey guys." I said with a small smile.

"Hey mads." They all said.

"So, we have been writing today and we think we have something, kinda good but we need your help..." Ashton said.

"With what?"

"We want your opinion." Calum stated.

"We only have the lyrics, but the lyrics are finished so read it and tell us what you think." Luke said.

Luke grabbed a piece of paper from the small table infront of them and handed it to me. I began to read through it.

(This is what a catch donnie by fob but pretend they wrote it.)

"I got troubled thoughts

And the self-esteem to match

What a catch, what a catch

You'll never catch us

So just let me be

Said I'll be fine

Till the hospital or American Embassy

Miss Flack said I still want you back

Yeah, Miss Flack said I still want you back

I got troubled thoughts

And the self-esteem to match

What a catch, what a catch

And all I can think of

Is the way I'm the one

Who charmed the one

Who gave up on you

Who gave up on you

They say the captain

Goes down with the ship

So, when the world ends

Will God go down with it?

Miss Flack said I still want you back

Yeah, Miss Flack said I still want you back

I got troubled thoughts

And the self-esteem to match

What a catch, what a catch

And all I can think of

Is the way I'm the one

Who charmed the one

Who gave up on you

Who gave up on you

What a catch

What a catch

What a catch

What a catch

I will never end up like him

Behind my back, I already am

Keep a calendar

This way you will always know

I got troubled thoughts

And the self-esteem to match

What a catch, what a catch

And all I can think of

Is the way I'm the one

Who charmed the one

Who gave up on you

Who gave up on you

I got troubled thoughts

And the self-esteem to match

What a catch, what a catch."

I looked at the boys shocked at what they had wrote. It was really beautiful and amazing.

"It's really, really great."

"Really? We aren't sure...." Calum trailed off.

"Yeah. I think its beautiful. You guys are really talented." I smiled although I'm trying not to cry.

"Thanks. But this one was Ashton." Luke said with a smile.

"Its beautiful ash."

"Thanks. I wrote it for you." I blushed, a tear slipped my eye.

"ASHTON WHAT DID YOU DO!" Luke yelled, motioning to the tear falling on my cheek.

"Awe don't cry!" Ashton exclaimed. He engulfed me in a hug.

"They are happy tears don't worry!" I choked out. "But ash. I cant-breathe."

We all laughed.

"Oh! Guys i had an idea for the band..." I said.

"What is it?" Calum asked.

"Well see I noticed you guys didn't have a logo... So i thought about it and I got an idea." I grabbed the pen that was on the table and flipped over the paper. I drew 5 tallies, and showed the guys.

"So I know, 5 for 5 seconds of summer but no. Thats not what I meant. So their is a tally for each of you, and then the one that is across it is either your friendship or your shared love of music that brings you together." I said.

"Thats good. But I think the tally that brings us together should represent you." Luke said with a smile.

"Yeah" the other boys said in sync.

We giggled. Ashton pulled out his phone and started to dial a number, he put it on speaker so we could all hear.

It rang 3 times before Michael's familiar voice rang through the phone.

"Hello?"

"Hey Mikey." Ashton said.

"Can you make an excuse to leave your dinner and come here? Maybe say that Calum is sick and needs you or something." Ashton said.

"Uh why?"

"Because we said too!" Luke yelled.

"YEAH!" Calum agreed.

"Just do it." I sighed.

"I'll be over in a few."

"Yay!" Ashton said.

He hung up.

"You know, i think you guys should teach me how to play your songs..." I said.

"On what?" Calum asked.

"Guitar...?" I said.

"You can play?" Ashton asked.

"Well kind of. I have been doing it for a while but i think i kind of suck."

"I will teach you!" Luke said.

"Okay." I smiled.

"How have you been?" Calum asked.

Thats a good question. Do I lie and say better? Or do I tell them truthfully that all i want to do is swallow a handful of sleeping pills?

____________________________________________

Im sorry if this really sucked. Im sick rn. Ew. But yeah I've been crappy. Okay. I hope you had lots of chocolate. This is kind of a filler chapter.

So this story will be ending soonish. I think i will do a sequel. But who knows. (When i say soon i mean like 10 chapters or more. So donut worry.)

Love you all.

Btw it would make me really happy if you guys could like this story :)

I had a presentation today. I like stopped breathing and was shaking like i was having a seizure. I had to present in front of the very people who make me feel the most insecure, self concious. To put it into perspective they bring my insecureness and low of self confidence level to like a

I was like

"Yeah uh excuse me?" *raises hand and waits for teacher. "Yes. Can i go to the washroom please? But do you have a gun i could borrow? Or even just a handful of multiple different pills would do the trick?"

Lets just say i had a great time.
