It's Saturday and most 18 year olds sleep in and have fun. Not me. I wake up to my parents banging on my door telling me how worthless I am. I get up and put my black skinny jeans and Green Day muscle shirt on. I cover my self harm scars and my bruises caused by my parents with makeup. I put my long brown hair with blonde highlights up in a high ponytail. I grab my Starbucks apron and my skateboard and sneak out the window to go to work.
Once I get to work I start taking orders as usual. A boy with light brown fluffy hair and a bandana walks in wearing tight skinny jeans and a shirt with holes in it. I got to admit that he looks HOT😍 af. My only friend Jenna nudges me in the arm and says, "Staring much". I roll my eyes at her and she laughs. She says, "Get his number he's cute." I whisper, "No he'll never go out with someone like me." Jenna scream whispers, "GIRL YOU'RE GORGEOUS idk why you can't see that."
The light brown haired boy is next in line and I say, "Hello welcome to Starbucks how may I help you." He says, "Hello can I have a blonde roast coffee." I say, "Of course and you name sir." "Ashton", he says.
Jenna walks over to me with 'Ashton's' drink and says to him, "Hey she thinks your cute." My face turns red as a tomato and apologize for Jenna. He giggles and his adorable dimples show and says, "We'll I happen to think that you are pretty cute too."I was blushed and looked down. He said, "Hey don't hide your beautiful face, what's your name by the way?" "Cassie". I say.
While Cassie's friend said something to her, I slipped my number on the counter for her. Cassie was so pretty I kinda wanna ask her out, 'Should I no you'll mess it up, no just do it what do you have to lose', my inner thoughts said. I finally mustered up the nerve to ask her out, "Hey Cassie wanna come over to my place for a movie tonight." She smiled and said, "Ya that would be great." I smiled back and left with my coffee.
'OMG someone just asked me out what do I say omg just answer you fool' I respond with a smile and a simple, "Ya that would be great." He smiles back and leaves with his coffee. I look down and see that he left his number for me. I tell Jenna and she almost screams in the shop.
Once my shift is over I go home to change for Ashton's house. I've been texting him and I got his address and I'm going over there at 4. It's 2:30 now. I sneak back into my window and my parents are in my room. They scream at me hurtful things and say, "WHERE THE HELL HAVE YOU BEEN." I reply in a scared and quiet tone, "At work." My dad slaps me and my mom kicks me. They call me, "worthless" "fat" and "ugly". My mom says, "Get out we don't want you here anymore you were a mistake you little bitch." They leave my room and I slowly get up and lock the door.
I don't have much in my room just posters, clothes my flat iron and curling iron, my makeup, and my phone and charger so I only use 2 bags for everything in my room.
I change my blood stained shirt to a nirvana shirt and a put on my bracelets to cover my scars. I keep my black jeans and black vans on. I sneak out my window with my 2 bags and I walk about a half mile. I sit on a park bench and I start crying. After about 30 minutes of crying I look at the time and see that it is 3:45. I put my phone down and see Ashton jogging towards me.
I decided to go for a walk before Cassie arrived at my house. As I was walking I saw a girl with two bags of stuff crying on a bench. I walked closer and realized that it was Cassie. She notices me and I start jogging towards her.
Ashton came over to me and said, "Oh my god are you ok Cassie." I said, "Uh.... ya I'm uh..... fine." Ashton gave me the 'I don't believe you look and said, "You're lying you wouldn't be here on a park bench crying if you were fine. Please tell me what's wrong." I decided to tell him because he was going to find out anyway but I didn't want to tell him here so I said, "Can we go back to your place and I'll explain." We both stood up and I went to grab my bags but Ashton stopped me grabbed my bags and smiled showing off his dimples. I couldn't help but smile back he's just so nice and adorable.
We got back to my house and I put Cassie's bags in the living room. We both sat I the couch and I said, "So tell me why you were crying."
We got to Ashton's house and he immediately asked me, "So tell me why you were crying" after we sat down.
I explained to him that my parents kicked my out but I didn't tell him that they abused me. Once I finished telling him he said, "Why would they kick you out." I said, "I... uh ..... i don't-" Ashton cut me off and kinda yelled, "Oh my god Cassie what happened to your cheek there's a giant bruise on it and i know that wasn't there this morning." I told him that I ran into a door but he didn't believe me. I'm an awful liar. He said, "Please tell me what's going on, the truth. I couldn't say no to Ashton so I told him the truth, "I...um my p-parents.... ab-abuse m-me." Ashton engulfed me in a hug and I hugged back.
I can't believe her parents would kick her out and abuse her. I didn't know what to say so I just hugged her, thankfully she hugged back. She was quietly crying and I felt so bad for her.
I asked her, "Where are you going to live?" She said, "I don't know I'll find somew-" I cut her off and firmly stated, "Your living with me." She tried to protest,"No Ashton I couldn't I-I wouldn't want to be a bother." I insisted that she lived with me and she let out a sigh of defeat and I yelled, "YAYY".
After arguing with Ashton and trying to get out of living with him not that I wouldn't want to live with someone nice it's just I wouldn't want to annoy him. I let out a sign of defeat and he yelled, "YAYY". He grabbed my bags and ran up to and empty room. He helped my unpack my bags and we went downstairs.
He asked, "What do you want to eat." I don't eat much if anything at all so I'll just lie for now. "Oh no thank you I already ate." He raised and eyebrow at me and said, "Well I'm ordering a pizza if you want any."
She said the she already ate but I didn't believe her so I figured that she was just stressed from today's events so I let it go. We watched Last Comic Standing and I put my arm around her and she snuggled into me. I noticed that she fell asleep and not long after so did I.
We watched Last Comic Standing and Ash put his arm around me and I snuggled into him. My eyelids became heavy and I slowly started to fall asleep.
