Chp 9: I know a celebrity
I didn't go to school for the rest of the week but my parents didn't mind. They knew I was nervous to see ashton after such a long time, plus I haven't missed a day of school since I moved to LA so they said that it was ok to miss a few days as long as it doesn't become a regular thing.
On Friday afternoon Alyssa and Evan came by mine after school.
We hung out all afternoon and I slowly started to put Sunday out of my mind for the time being. Evan turned on some music and they started filling me in on everything I had missed at school that week. Then 'it' started.
' simmer down, simmer down they say we're to young now to amount to anything else ...'
Even turns it up and I quickly turn it off.
"What's been going on with you lately? You have been acting weird since you left my house the other day." Alyssa said kind of annoyed.
"Yea and then u have a blow out in math and decide not to show up for the rest of the week. You haven't missed a day of school since I have met you. " Evan sounded pissed and I was stunned by how her voice sounded.
"Did I do something. Is it me? Because if it is I can go." Alyssa said with disappointment.
Alyssa gets up off my bed and starts to head to the door. Right before she gets to the door i start to finally speak. I knew I had to tell them soon because I only had two days before the boys got here and ashton moves in.
"I-I... Well Alyssa it's not you. I already told you that at school on Monday and it's not you either Evan so u don't have to worry about that. It's just - well um" I couldn't seem to get my words together.
"Sarah I'm really starting to get annoyed. You say your goin to tell us something but then u can never spit it out. What the hell is it?" Alyssa practically shouted curling up on my papasan chair on the other side of my room.
"I -I um know a celebrity..." I was very nervous and I started playing with my bracelets that hid my old scars. When I look back up they are just staring at me. Even falls off my bed laughing so hard which makes Alyssa laugh.
I was getting annoyed and pissed off that they didn't believe me. " I don't find this very funny. Why would I lie about something Like this. I have never lied to you guys EVER!!!!!" I just looked at them with my eyes wide
They stopped laughing and looked at me seriously. I could read Alyssa's face. She was finally starting to put all the puzzle pieces together.
"Omg it's one of the 5sos members isn't it!!!!!!" She sounded thrilled and I that moment I knew I should have not told them because I could already see where this was going. I started playing with my bracelets again.
"Holy fuck it is!!!!" Evan sounded more excited then Alyssa.
" it's - um ashton actually" I still sounded really nervous and could barely get the words out of my mouth.
Evan and Alyssa started freaking out like I thought they would. I quickly make my way to my bedrooms bathroom and lock myself in there. I slide down my door and sit on my rug. All I can hear from the other side of the door is screaming and yelling.
When the screaming and yelling go down I unlock the bathroom door and go back into my room to see Alyssa and Evan on their phones.
"What are you guys doing ?" Worried they might be telling the ENTIRE school!!!!!!
"Making a list of questions to ask you !" Alyssa had a smirk on her face and I knew this was either going to end very badly or go down good. Either way I knew there was gonna be lots of questions to try and answer.
"Fine go ahead ask away. But seriously you guys can't tell ANYONE!!!!" I was surprisingly calm which surprised me.
They kept going back and forth with the most ridiculous questions ever.
"Are you guys dating?"
"Have you ever kissed?"
"Do u want to kiss each other?"
"How did you guys meet?"
"Are you in love?"
"Do u know the other boys?"
"Are they all single or is that a lie?"
"WHOOAH!!!!! SLOW THE FUCK DOWN!!!! I CAN ONLY ANSWER ONE FUCKING QUESTION AT A TIME. DO U GUYS EVEN HAVE AN OFF SWICH? YOU GUYS ARE CRAZY!!! I WILL BE OUTSIDE IF YOU GUYS WANT TO ASK REAL, NORMAL QUESTIONS!!!!" I stormed out of my room onto my balcony and stood there admiring the view. When I was out here it's like the whole world disappears for a moment. I never told anyone that because I thought they might think that I'm crazy. It was my own little secret and I loved it that way.
"Um hey Sarah were sorry" they both said in sync.
"It's ok. It's just really overwhelming and u know I hate that!!" I was calm again
"So do you guys have any normal questions to ask ?"
"Well where did you guys meet ?" They were in sync again. That's what I hated about being their friend. They were so alike.
"Well actually he is -was my best friend from Australia. We grew up together. Our parents always said we would get married and all that" I didn't notice until I was done talking that I had a huge smile on my face because of the memories with ashton.
"When was the last time you seen him and when is the next time your going to see him?" Evan asked
This was the question I was hoping didn't pop up but of course it did.
"Well um- the last time I seen him in person was when I moved out here. But I plan on seeing him soon." Saved it I thought to myself.
"When's soon?" Alyssa looked at me like she was studying my face.
"Um just soon...." I wasn't ready to tell them how soon but I knew I had too. "Well Actually him and the boys are gonna be on break for awhile and he's gonna be here on Sunday afternoon..."
They looked at me and then started screaming with happiness again.
"STOP FUCKING SCREAMING!!!!!! It's not that big of a deal. But seriously you guys can't tell anyone AT ALL!!! Him and the boys want to lay low for awhile" I was worried again
"Do u have any pictures of you too?" In sync AGAIN!!!!!!
"Um yea under my bed but I haven't looked at them for-" where the hell did they go. I was alone on my balcony again.
I walk into my room and they are trying to find my hidden box. Well I guess it wasn't really hidden it had big purple words on it that read ' ASHY AND SIS'.
They jumped on my bed when they found the box and started going through all of ash's and mines photos from years ago.
I smiled the whole time we were going through the pictures. It was the most I have smiled since last time I had seen ashy -I mean ashton. Whoops. Even when he wasn't here he could make me smile. This boy could ALWAYS make me smile just by him smiling himself. I chuckled at the thought of him and his big buck toothed grin from when we were little. I suddenly wasn't worried or nervous about Sunday anymore, but instead I was excited.
Excited to make new memories with the boy from my childhood
