Chp 11: ice cream,tears,hugs,and cuddles
Mum said that ashton wouldn't be over til the afternoon so I decided to stay at Alyssa's on Saturday. We had a blast and she hardly even talked about ashton( which surprised me a lot). Around 8 at night Evan decided to show up and stay with us. We watched movies and are popcorn all night and laughed at everything even if it wasn't funny!!! It was the most fun I had had in a long time and I was glad I could have friends like them.
Alyssa and I both woke up at the same time (weird) and found that Evan wasn't there. There was a note on Alyssa's dresser that said "sorry had to leave early. Hope u have a good time today when u see ash, Sarah and sorry for not waking u to tell u I was leaving Alyssa. Love u too thx for the fun night -Evan ".
We didn't even really care that she left. She did it a lot. It wasn't anything new so me and Alyssa were like yea ok whatever and decided to go to dairy queen.
We ordered our ice cream and sat outside In the sun it was quiet for a long time. An awkward quiet that I didn't like.
"What's up?" Trying to break her awkward eye contact and silence with me.
"Oh nothing. " she sighed
"Come on what is it?"
"I was just thinking about, well ashton and how this is all going to play out. " she sounded scared and not excited which made me worried.
"What do u mean Alyssa?"
"Well I mean like how is he going to say hi to you. Like is he gonna stand there awkwardly or is he going to give u that smile your always talking about and run up and hug you. Or what if when he moves in he brings a girl over and they start ya know" she paused and I knew what she meant.
"Ok first of all I'm probably gonna be the one who runs up and hugs him and second even if he did bring a girl over why would tht be awkward I mean we are just friends. Best friends! We have both probably ya know and if he wants to have a girl over it's his choice. Isn't it ? I mean yea it is his choice and if that happens I will leave and come back when he tells me to. It will be fine. It will work out. I mean it has too. " she had me freaking out.
She looked at me with pity in her eyes before speaking. "Sarah I love you you know I do. But who are you trying to convince that everything will be ok. Me or you? Because to me it sounds like your trying to convince yourself."
"I'm fine. Everything's fine. I'm just nervous." I was still worried. What if that did happen. Would I just stand there shocked. What if I walked in on him. Oh god yuck !!!! Alyssa pulled me out if my thoughts.
"Sarah I never asked if you were ok. Do u need something because that face is telling me that your not fine. What's wrong. " she sounded sweet like my mum did when she was trying to calm me down. Honestly I didn't know what was wrong. I had never had this feeling before. It felt like my heart was being ripped out I my chest but at the same time I had butterfly's in my stomach. All of a sudden I feel myself crying. What the hell?
"Hey babe what's wrong. Why are you crying. If your worried about ashton don't be. You will walk In to that house and hug him and become best friends agai-" she was cut off because my phone went off. It was mum
"Hey Sarah your dad got called into work to day as well so you will have to get a ride home or walk home. Love u have a great day😘 -mum"
She didn't tell me if ashton was there or not but I figured he wasn't because mum wouldn't want him there alone after he had just got there. I mean that's weird on so many levels. Oh well whatever.
Alyssa drove me home and told me goodbye. The only car in the driveway was my yellow jeep. Figured. I walk inside from the back door that leads Straight to the back stairs. I went upstairs unpacked my stuff and went into the bathroom
I had ordered some Hawaiian pizza because I didn't want to touch any of the hills' food. As I sat Down to eat the first slice of pizza I thought I heard a car door and then another door open and shut. Was it Sarah? I didn't see her come through the front door so I thought I might just be hearing things and was just a little anxious.
I came running down the stairs like a elephant and went into the kitchen to get some food and wait for ashton. When I got to the kitchen there he was. A tall handsome boy with curly brown hair and a holy t-shirt eating pizza At my table.
I heard someone come down the stairs but I decided to take one last bite of pizza before seeing who it was. After taking the last bite I turned around and there she was. A beautiful girl in a nirvana t-shirt with black holy skinny jeans and yellow chucks. She looked beautiful!!
"Your- your here!!!!" I cried as I ran over to him. I jumped in his arms for a hug and he spun me around. I felt like I was In a movie. A wonderful movie that I don't want to come to an end. He put me down but didn't stop hugging me. We hugged forever without saying one word to each other. I cried tears of joy on his shoulder but he didn't mind. He smelt so good and I didn't want to be the first to pull away. I don't think he wanted to be the first to either.
She -she she was here!!! For how long ? Oh well I didn't care. I picked her up and spun her around and then out her down. But didn't let her go. I didn't want to stop huggin her. I had to make up for the last 9 years. She smelt like roses and her hair was soft. I could feel her crying on my shoulder but I didn't mind. I missed her and didn't want to let go. I didn't ever want to let her go again, but I knew one of us had to pull away at some time. I just couldn't be that one.
After I drowned ashys shirt in tears I slowly pulled away from the long lasting hug. "Hey." I said
He chuckled before replying "hey"
" sorry about that " I laughed pointing at his shoulder.
"Don't be. I missed you. And I guess you missed me too" he said trying to sound like a smartass
" I did ashy. I really did" I tried to be as seriously as I could but giggles came out.
He pulled me into another hug and started laughing in the crock if my neck.
I jumped back laughing "ughh that tickled " I Saadi trying to calm down.
"Hahahah sorry sis. I didn't mean to tickle you. But I mean if you want tickled. That can be arranged"
Before I could say no I was running away from 'the tickle monster'. I hated that he was making me happy right now.
Before I knew it I was on my couch laughing and almost pissing my pants.
"S-st-stop it" I laughed. I couldn't breathe.
"Never!!! Mwahahahah!!!!" He was laughing and smiling too which made me smile even more.
"Plz sto-stop!!!" I begged.
He finally stopped and I could finally catch my breath. He say down in the couch beside me and I scooted closer for a little side hug. Instead he pulled me into his lap and I hugged him from there. We stayed like this for about an hour just cuddling on the couch.
It was an awkward way to say hello to someone you hadn't seen in so long but also it was the best way to say hello to someone. He was so weird and dorky and still is today. I can't help but love this weirdo.( a/n when they tell each other they love each other the men in like a friend way if u were confused)
Sarah came in closer to me for a side hug but I pulled her on top of my lap instead. She cuddled her head into my neck and we just sat there like that for an hour of so saying nothing but enjoying each others company. It was weird how we said hello. But I guess that was just us. She fits into me perfectly and when we hug I never want to let go. She is my best friend and I will never leave her again. I love her.
