Loving Ash

Bandfic for Fanfiction Royale


Ashley Clifford spends her spare time coddling her camera and dancing to classic rock. After her high school boyfriend dumps her, she spends most of her time hiding out in her room and blasting pop breakup ballads. But what happens when her brother comes home? She hasn't seen him or his band in months.

Ashton Irwin spends his spare time banging on his drums or playing video games with his friends. Lately he's been hanging with his band, playing gigs all over. Returning home, he didn't expect to find Michael's little sister all grown up. And he definitely didn't expect her to join them on tour.

What happens when these two get put together in a small space? Will they bite each other's heads off, or will sparks fly?

Chapter Four: I guess I'll give you a bit of a 1D education

"Hey, Calum!" I called as I exited the car. Mum was climbing out of the drivers seat, ready to make a big fuss about Michael and I leaving on our own. I knew this was a big deal for her, but honestly, if she shed anymore tears I think she might dry up. So, to avoid her for as long as possible, I ran over to the two boys waiting for us.

"Hullo Ashley," Calum greeted with a smile, reaching for a hug. I gave him a quick hug, my excitement getting the bettter of me as I squeezed him tight. "Woah there girl! Save it for Ashton."

I pulled away from him and he winked at me as I blushed. "Shut up, Cal."

He just laughed and went to hug my mum. Luke smiled at me and I waved. It was still a bit awkward between the two of us. I just hope we can go back to normal. Ashton was nowhere in sight.

I hadn't spoken to Ashton since yesterday morning. After waking up in his shirt, I was way too embarrassed to even look at him. I kept thinking about the night before, when he held me. My cheeks flushed again as I recalled the feeling of his lips and hands. I know nothing happened, but I was beginning to wonder if he wanted something to happen between us.

"Ashley!" I heard my mum call me from by the car. I turned to face her and smiled a little at the sight of her with her arms wrapped around Michael. I walked over to them and we had a big family hug. Mum was sobbing into Mike's chest and clinging tightly to both of us. I met my brother's pleading eyes which seemed to be begging me to get her to let him go. I rolled my eyes before I smiled.

"Mum, you've gotta let him go now." I sighed, pulling lightly at her sleeve. She stood there for a moment longer before stepping away from him. "Look, we've got to hurry so we don't miss our flight."

Mum wrapped her arms tightly around me, one hand smoothing down my hair the other rubbing soothing circles on my back like she used to do when I was little.

"I'm going to miss you, baby girl." Mum mumbled into my hair. A small smile tugged at my lips as I snuggled into her shoulder.

"I'm gunna miss you too, mum." I sighed, breathing in her scent. And I really was going to miss her. "But we'll be back before you know it!"

I pulled away, pecking her cheek lightly and gripping my rucksack. She gave me one last hug and a kiss before sending us on our way.

"Bye babies! I love you!" She called after us, waving to us with a watery smile.

"Bye mum!" Michael called back with a wave.

"Love you too, mum!" I smiled back at her.

"Don't let your sister get into any trouble, Michael!" Mum suddenly yelled to my brother. We looked at each other and rolled our eyes.

"Goodbye mum!" We yelled back.

When we reached the other boys who stood inside the doors, they were all laughing at us. Ashton had rejoined Calum and Luke and they were standing in a small huddle chuckling.

"'Don't let her get into any trouble, Michael!'" Luke mimicked our mum's voice, sending me a mocking stare.

"What kind of trouble do you think she was talking about, Ashy?" Ashton mumbled softly in my ear. Whoa, when had he snuck behind me? His hot breath tickled the back of my neck, disturbing the small wisps of hair at the base. I had lazily thrown my hair up into a messy bun this morning after pulling on my favorite pair of sweatpants and my Beatles t-shirt. "You look cute this morning, sweetheart."

I rolled my eyes to cover up my blushing cheeks, and pushed him away.

"Whatever, Ashton." I scoffed. He really needed to stop complimenting me, it was starting to freak me out. He just smiled, moving to grab my bag along with his. Strange.

"Okay," Michael called everyone's attention. "We have 20 minutes to locate our gate."

There were multiple "shit" 's and "dammit" 's as we all grabbed the remaining bags and rushed in the general direction of our gate.


We were all situated in our seats and had been comfortably lounging for the past hour. Calum, Luke and Michael had all chosen to sit together which left Ashton and I together. At first, I had put my earphones in and ignored him, listening to some One Direction songs. I was attempting to become familiar with their music before I met them so I wouldn't seem too old school.

I was currently listening to I Wish. They weren't bad. I actually really liked their voices together.

'But I see you with him slow dancing, Tearing me apart cuz you don't see..'

I felt one of my earbuds being pulled out and turned to the teenage boy sitting next to me. He had put my blue earphone into his own ear and he was now smirking at me.

'He looks at you the way that I would, Does all the things I know that I could...'

Our eyes held each other in a staring match, my own confused and his full of his normal cocky-ness.

'If only time could just turn back...cuz I got three little words that I've always been dying to tell you..'

He had really pretty eyes. They were like a green color, but at the same time they were kind of grey. And I could see so many emotions there, in the darkness, the deepness swallowing me.

'Whenever you kiss him I'm breaking,

Oh how I wish that was me...'

"They're not bad." I blurted out, trying to distract myself from the fact I had almost admitted he was attractive. Shit there I go, saying it anyway. Ashton blinked a few times, like he was bringing himself out of a trance.

'I wish it was me you were calling around when you wanna say goodnight...'

"Yeah, they're pretty good." He said softly, smiling a genuine smile. "They're really awesome, and I can't wait for you to meet them."

'Oh how I wish,

Oh how I wish,

Oh how I wish that was me..."

I smiled. "Yeah, I'm excited to meet them. I've heard nothing but good things."

'Oh how I wish that was me.'

"Oh, they are too amazingly cool to say anything much bad about them." He replied, confusing me a little. A new song was starting up. I didn't really know this one, but it was pretty."How much do you know about them anyway?"

'I'm broken, do you hear me?

I'm blinded, cuz you are everything I see..'

"Not much," I admitted, scrunching up my nose. "I rarely listen to anything other than you guys, Billy Joel and The Beatles."

'And as I walk up to your door, my head turns to face the floor...'

"Okay, well I guess I'll give you a bit of a 1D education." He smirked as he said that. "If you want, that is."

"Sure.." I answered a little hesitantly.

'When he opens his arms and holds you close tonight, it just won't feel right....'

"Okay, so the members are - from youngest to oldest - Harry Styles, Niall Horan, Liam Payne, Zayn Malik and Louis Tomlinson. Harry is a flirt, but a big sweetheart. Niall is my Irish snowflake and he's the blonde one. Liam is the most sensible one and he's dating Danielle. Zayn is known as the bad boy, but in reality I think he's the sweetest out of all of them. I think he's dating Perrie Edwards from Little Mix. And Louis is like a five year old trapped in an adult's body. He's dating Eleanor." He pauses for a moment. "Are you with me so far?"

"Wait, what's Little Mix?" I asked trying to keep everything in order in my mind.

'Then I see you on the street in his arms I get weak, my body fails I'm on my knees, praying...'

"That's a band." Ashton chuckled at me and I shot him a frustrated look. "They were on the X-factor same as the lads. The year after them I believe. It's okay, we have time. By the time we get off this plane, you will know everything there is to know about One Direction."

"Okay, lets get this over with." I mumbled as I shut my music off. The rest of the flight should be interesting.
