Paisley's P.O.V: The next week went by fast. I didn't talk about what happened the previous weekend. I tried my best to forget about it. It was Friday night and i was home alone. Michael couldn't come over because he was away with his parents for this business thing. He was gone for the week and wasn't coming back until Wednesday. I didn't understand why he had to go with them, but they would be upset if he didn't. So i will respect that.
Lance and his mother left yesterday. Thank god. We didn't tell our parents what happened. He apologized but i didn't forgive him. When his mom asked what happened to his face. I told her that it was a incident with the boys at school. She understood. What sucked is that i had to be his friend when our mothers were around.
As i said. I'm home alone on a Friday night with nothing to do. Its raining and thundering which kinda makes me scared. I hear a knock on my balcony door. I ignore it and try to focus my mind on something else. I hear it again. I get up from my desk where i was doing homework and walk over to the door. I push aside the curtains to see a soaking wet Ashton. I open the door and Ashton quickly runs inside. He is so embarrassing, its cute.
"Sorry Ash. I thought you were a axe murderer." I say laughing.
"Sorry. I got scared of the thunder." He reply's, shivering. I walk over to the closet and throw him a blanket.
"Couldn't you run to your mommy?" I said teasing him.
"Your my thunder buddy Paisley." He said in a cute, shy tone, wrapping the blanket around his body.
"Thunder buddy?" I get confused and he gives me a surprised look.
"YOU'VE NEVER SEEN TED?" He says shocked
"Whats that?" I ask.
He looks really surprised. He runs over to my bed and grabs the remote to my TV. He turns it on and flips through the demand. He finds the movie and turns it on. He pauses it and Grabs my hand.
"When is your Dad coming home?"
"I'm alone for the weekend."
"Great. Lets go get food." We go downstairs and stock up on drinks and food.
We come back upstairs and get settled on the bed. He presses play, and we watch the movie.
~Skip to end of the movie~
"Did you like the movie?" Ashton asks me.
"Yes." I said not looking at him.
"Your such a bad liar."
"I laughed didn't I?!" I yell at him in a playful tone.
"Okay, i will believed you liked the movie." He says chuckling.
"Wanna watch another movie?" I ask
"Yeah what movie?" He asks.
"How about Mean girls?" I ask him. He starts laughing.
"Fuck yah! Turn it on!" He yells, which causes me to laugh.
I turn on the movie and we watch it and don't take our eyes off the screen.
We are half way through the movie and i can feel Ashton staring at me. I glance at him and smile.
"What?" I ask
"Okay." I laugh and turn my head back to the screen.
I am not gonna lie. Michael had told me he was jealous of Ash. Which was stupid. Maybe i should test Ashton. Cause i'm starting to feel worried. I have to be honest. Ashton is really attractive, i wouldn't mind kissing him- I am with Michael. I cant be thinking things like this. I have to snap out of it.
"Ashton can i tell you something?"
"You just did." He laughs, I laugh with him
"I'm being serious, Please?"
"Michael is Jealous of you."
"Oh my God why? Michael has it going for him."
"He is jealous because he thinks you have feelings for me." Ashton gets quiet and doesn't talk. I sit up and face him.
"Do you?" I say keeping my eyes on him. He sits up and looks me in the eye.
"Yes." I am shocked by his words. He knows i am with Michael. He could've just lied and said no.
"Ashton-" I get cut off by his words
"Paisley, I didn't want you to find out. I saw you at Luke's party having a good time, Looking beautiful, and something clicked in my head. I saw you in a different light. I knew right then and there, I wanted to be with you. But i cant. Your with Michael." He says.
I sit there speechless. I cant believe what i am hearing. For some reason. My head is spinning and it wont stop. What should i do? I've never been so frightened by a decision. There is no words to how much i love Michael. I Love him and i don't want to lose him. Ashton on the other hand is my best friend. I get it. Best friends develop feelings for each other. I just cant believe Ashton is doing this to me.
"God Dammit Ash!" I say
He just sits there playing with his hands. I do the same.
"I want to punch you Ash."
"I know." He says sadly. I look up at him
"At the same time i want to kiss you." He pops his head up and his eyes are big from shock.
"I wish you didn't say that Paisley."
"I know Ash but listen-" I get cut off by his lips kissing into mine. I know i shouldn't be doing this. I love Michael. But, kissing Ashton feels so right. I didn't want to stop.
He puts his hands on my waist moving me closer to him. I wrap my arms around his neck and run my fingers through his hair. He kisses me on my lips, then moves down to my jaw, then my neck. A moan escapes my lips. I am pulled back into reality.
"Stop." I say. Ashton gets pulled back to the real world too. The world he just realized that we just stabbed Michael in the back.
"Oh my God, Paisley im so sorry." He said
"I know, its not your fault, its mine." I say back looking at the ground
"I should go, Goodnight." He walks to the balcony door and leaves.
I sit there in silence for 5 minutes. I lay down and turn my body away from the balcony. I try to stop the tears from flowing. They fall anyway. I cry myself to sleep.
What did i just do?
