Absent dreams

"I'm in a band, but, we kinda suck.."
"Oh you do now do you? Let me be the judge of that. I'll see you at seven.."

Chasity's POV


I startled awake and flung off my bed. "What the fuck" I lazily rolled my head up to see Ashton and Luke standing there, smug grins on their faces. "Assholes" I muttered with a lisp.

"Awe you have a morning lisp, cute" Ashton giggled.

"Fuck off Irwin I have my retainer in"

If you couldn't tell, I'm not much of a morning person.

"Anyways," Luke started, holding his hands out to help me up. I gladly grabbed than and stood to my feet, collapsing back onto my bed, "Holden's out, he needs you to fill these out by next Wednesday" he handed me a packet of papers.

"What the fuck is this"


I groaned. "But it's my senior year and I have no friends that I'll hang out with why go to a new school for one year"

"Exactly, it's your senior year, cmon you gotta graduate"

"None of you graduated I don't see why it's different for me"

"Uh I actually did little missy" Ashton laughed, "I'm surprised you didn't know that"

"I did.." I muttered, feeling a blush creep upon my face.

They both laughed and left my room, "breakfast is on the table" I heard Luke yell from the bottom of the stairs.

I got myself up off my bed, if Cal is the one who cooked then it's definitely worth getting up, he cooks like heaven.

I threw my hair up in a messy bun, taking out my retainer and going to brush my teeth. When I entered the bathroom I nearly screamed, I look gross in the morning. I took of the remainder of my make up from last night, making a mental note to shower after breakfast.

I yawned and threw a pair of sweats on over my shorts, I found them on the bathroom floor so I'm assuming they're Holden's.

They were black, and they said 'Michigan' down the leg.

I put on a pair of my elites and headed for the stairs.

Wen I walked into the kitchen I saw eight eye balls meet mine, "what?" I said, dumbfounded.

"Hmm nice sweats"

"Yeah I mean, they're a little big, but, I guess Holden's legs are longer than I thought" I smiled weakly and headed towards the table where a stack of pancakes, more than half gone, was waiting for me.

"Holden isn't that much taller than you" Calum laughed.

"Whatever, I found them in the bathroom who knows where he got them"

"They're not Holden's they're mine"

I looked up to see Luke laughing, "oh sorry then I hope you don't mind" I giggled, "because I'm not takin them off they're too comfy"

"Yeah yeah have it your way"

"So, did cal cook? Or was it one of you goons?"

"Cal" they all said in unison, cal stood up and bowed

"Good he cooks better than the rest of you" I giggled again.

The morning was filled with laughter and stupid, pointless conversations. Before I knew it, it was 1:30 and Holden was walking through the front door.

"Well look who decided to show up" I said sarcastically.

"How about a 'hey big brother that I love so much, how was your morning while I was here all by myself with four people that I'm madly in love with and definitely DIDNT," he paused and looked at all the boys. "'Do anything with' but no it's ok I just get a sarcastic remark"

"You weren't here when I woke up these idiots scared me half to death waking me" I laughed.

"I'm glad I didn't have to see that first thing this morning" he laughed, looking me up and down. I still hadn't showered, we were having too much fun so I just never got around to it.

"Whatever" I stuck my tongue out at him.

"Where were you anyway?" I asked, starting to clear the table of the mess we made at lunch.

"I was down at the school changing all your information to prove you lived here now-"

"I'm not going to school" I rolled my eyes.

"Relax, this school year is over you don't have to go back until the end of summer"

"I'm still not going"

"You need an education"

"They didn't go to school why is it different for me"

"Chasity we talked about this already" Luke butted in.

"Not now Luke, I know you're trying to help but I don't see why"

"Chasity you need to go, you're graduating so that eventually you can get a job, you don't think that you're just gonna marry so big and rich super star or live off of me your whole life do you?"

"Ok dad whatever you say" I rolled my eyes, getting up from my seat at the table and going to the stairs.

"We're not done here"

"Sounds a bit like dejavu doesn't it?"

"Did you take your meds today? You're doing that thing again"

"No I didn't take them. And I haven't since I've been here!" Then I slammed my door. It probably would help me not freak out so much over little things like this but I just can't take them.

I locked my door and went over to my bed. I turned my tv on and flicked to Netflix, resuming the episode of 'One Tree Hill' I started last night.

It was kinda cold in my room, I had the windows open all last night and, despite how nice it is during the day it's actually really cold at night sometimes. I got out of bed and went over to where my stuff was. Half of it in my suitcases still, as I'm way to lazy to ever unpack it, the other half in my dresser and closet. I dug through my stuff and grunted when I came to conclusion that I must have thrown all my sweatshirts down the laundry shoot with the rest of my clothes last night.

I sighed and went to my door, sniffling before I unlocked it and poked my head out, making sure no one else was in the hallway before I made my way downstairs and straight to the laundry room.

And just my luck, all my stuff was in the wash. I let out s deep groan and angrily flicked the lights off, walking through the back room and kitchen. I almost made it up the stairs without having to deal to anyone when Luke put his arm out in front of me, stopping my body from going up them.

"Not in the mood Lucas"

"Are you ok?"

"Luke I said not now"

"Yes now, you've been in your room for three hours, you still didn't shower, and you have goosebumps all over you, what's wrong?"

"I just came down to find a sweatshirt I wasn't expecting anyone to be here, I heard Holden leave a little while ago so I figured you all left"

"Nope still here" he smiled.

"Well thanks, but, unless you have a sweatshirt I'm sorry because you're no help to me"

He sighed and lifted his arm, letting me go.

"Hey Luke?"

I turned back around to look at him, he was already looking at me.


"Thank you"

"For what?"

"Making sure I was ok"

He smiled, "yeah, no problem"

I smiled back at him before turning and going back to my room.

I sighed and grabbed another blanket from the closet, it wasn't a heavy one but it's better than nothing.

As soon as I sat down and hit play, I felt my pone buzz.

'The hot one🔥':

Do you want a sweatshirt? I got one in my car

I slid my finger across the message, waiting for the keyboard to pop up at the bottom of my screen so I could reply.

'No you don't have to it's fine haha bad enough I stole your sweats, which by the way you're never getting back😋'

'The hot one🔥':

Chas I could see how cold you were, I'll be up in a few keep your door unlocked xx

I sighed. I wasn't getting out of this. Having the four of them around all the time is like having four more older brothers. I can barley handle having one never mind five.

My door opened and Luke popped his head in, "Chas?"


"Here" a grey sweatshirt was thrown at me. I smiled.

"Luke this is your favorite one" I giggled.

"That's why it was in my car, I bring it everywhere just in case" he laughed.

"You can come In ya know, I don't bite" we both laughed some more.

He stepped in and closed the door behind him, a pet peeve of mine when it's left open. He came over and say on the edge of my bed.

"You look pale"


"Yeah, are you sure you're ok?"

"Yeah, Luke I'm fine just upset, I hate fighting with Holden, especially over the stupid little things but I can't help it"

"What do you mean?"

"That's what my meds are for, but I haven't taken them in five weeks so I guess it's catching up with me"

"That's not good, please take them Chas it'll not help"

"Look, I appreciate the concern but I don't need another da-" I stopped myself before I finished, realizing that it was catching up with me and he was right.

He just looked at me, his eyes were literally penetrating through mine, icy blue and cool.

"Top right cabinet in the bathroom up here" I sighed. He smiled all giddy and got up, returning a minute later with a bottle of pills, and a thermometer?

"Take these, then we're taking your temperature, I've known you long enough to know that you're way to pale to be ok"

I nodded my head and swallowed the pills dry, it hurt but I didn't have any water so oh well.

"Good girl, now open up come on"

I sighed and opened my mouth so he could put the thermometer under my tongue.

I laid back on my pillow, waiting for the longest minute of my life to be over.

"101.7, you got a fever"

I groaned and he laughed at me. "No wonder you were so cold, and your windows are open, Chas are you crazy? It gets freezing at night" he laughed and got up off my bed to close my windows.

I laughed a little and resumed my show.

"Do you need anything?"

"No haha but thank you"

He smiled.

"I don't wanna get you sick, you can go if you want"

He looked over at me, kneeling down next to me so his face was level with mine.

"I'll be ok, I promise" I smiled.

"Does that mean you'll stay?" I felt a small smile creep in my face when he nodded his head yes.

"If you want me to" he smiled at me.

I nodded my head and moved over a but so that he could lay next to me.

"Wachya watchin?"

"One Tree Hill"

"Sounds boring, is it?"

"Well right now it kinda is because I just started it from the beginning of the whole series but it gets better I promise"

Luke shifted slightly, dropping his arm behind me. I smiled to myself.

I shifted and put my head on his chest, letting out a breath that I didn't know I was holding in.

"You ok?"

"Yeah, just tired"

It was silent for a while. I could feel myself getting more tired, my eyelids becoming heavier.

I heard my doorknob being turned and felt like stiffen under my head.

I didn't say anything, just pretended to be sleeping when I felt him shifting to look down at me.

"Chas look I'm sor- Luke? What in the same hell are you doing in my sisters room, in her bed even!"

"Shhh man she's slee-"

"I don't care!" He lowered his voice to a whisper, though I could still hear him.

"Look man, she came downstairs a few hours after you guys fought and I just was making sure she was okay when she came back up here, she has a fever so i told her to get some rest and she, she asked me to stay, I couldn't say no Holden"

"So where's she get the sweatshirt? And the sweats? Did you guys-" he was raising his voice.

"No, no, god no Holden I'm not an idiot you'd kill me, plus she's to delicate I wouldn't take advantage of her like that, I just didn't wanna leave her"

"She was freezing, that's when I knew something was wrong look, I'm just looking out for her"

"Do anything to her and you know I'll kill you, look I know how she feels about you and if you take advantage of that I swear to god I'll fuck you over"

"I won't man I promise, we good?"

"Fine, when she wakes up tell her we need to talk will ya?"

And with that, he left.
