"I knew I would find you here." Ashton smiled and sat down next to me on the well.
"Well you found me." I replied and continued to stare at the well.
There was an awkward silence between us for a few moment before Ashton spoke up.
"Why do you come here?"
I stared at him for a few moments not being able to speak just staring at the wilderness. I took a small glance at him and he was staring back at me. I looked forward again before speaking up.
"I don't know." I said and he stuffed his hands in his pocket and looks down.
"Did you make a wish?" His hazel eyes burn into the side of my head.
"Yeah." I replied shortly and looked at him.
"Can you tell me?"
"If I do it won't come true."I said and grabbed my books and started to walk away.
"Wait where you going?" Ashton said and started running trying to catch up with me.
"Home" I replied shortly while walking down the dirt passage.
"Um...wanna hang out or something?" Ashton asked.
"You wanna hang out with me?" I laughed and shook my head.
"Yeah." He said and sounded serious.
"Um....I don't think that's such a good idea." I replied awkwardly.
"Oh okay well...bye Ellena." Ashton said and started to leave my house.
I sighed and entered my house and took my shoes off along with my jacket and walked into the kitchen. I grabbed a can of Sprite along with a bag of popcorn and made my way to my room. Once there I began watching Gossip Girl on Netflix.
Later that evening my father came home and the routine was same as usual we ate take out and made small talk. After dinner we watch some T.V. then we go our separate ways. I lay in my bed staring up at the ceiling thinking about what would happen if I said yes to hanging out with Ashton at his house. Why would he want to with me?
I shook my head trying to clear my thoughts and drifted to sleep around 9 pm.
I woke up to my phone going off. I got up and looked at the clock to see it's 11 pm. I groaned and grabbed my phone to see Alexandra calling me. I sighed and answered it.
"Hello?" I asked in a raspy voice.
"Oh my god Ellena you have to get ready Calum is having a party and it's all over twitter!" She screamed into my ear.
"Party? Alex we never go to parties it's not our scene." I sighed.
"But we're only in high school once and we need to go to at least one party." She replied.
I looked down and didn't answer her.
"Ellena? are you still there?" She asked.
"Can we please go? I can be over in a few minutes and we can leave."
"Fine, but what am I gonna wear? I don't have party clothes."
"I'm sure you'll find something." With that she hung up.
I sighed and rolled out of bed and turned my lights on and made my way to my bathroom. I decided to do my makeup first then hair. I decided to do the full face which took about 15 minutes. I started to straighten my hair when I got a text from Alexandra saying that she's here. I walked over to my window and unlocked it to see her waiting next to her car.
"Climb up." I replied shortly.
"What the fuck do you think this is? I'm not climbing up a tree." She glared at me.
"Fine then wait for me."
I went to my closet to find something to wear. I pulled out a pair of black high waist shorts and a black loose sweater along with a denim jacket. I went to my dresser to put on a pair of tights to wear under my shorts.
Once I was dressed I grabbed my phone and my wallet and went to my window. I opened the window and started to climb onto the roof trying not to make a sound.
"Ellena what the fuck are you doing?" Alexandra whispered/screamed at me.
"Shhh!" I said and reached the tree and climbed down without managing to fall.
I ran to Alex's car and got in and we made our way to the party.
