I hear a soft knock on my door that I recognize as Ashton's. "Come in.",I whisper. The door opens and Ash comes to sit by me. I lay my head on his shoulder. "Thank you, Kangaroo.",I say. He nods. I call him 'Kangaroo' because that's exactly what he is and sounds like: A Kangaroo.
"Don't let him get you down,Car.",he says,using his nickname for me. I start to cry.
"It's just...I don't know why he hates me so much,I show nothing but love to him." I stiffen at the word 'love'. "I can't believe he just shut me out." I gaze off into the distance,remembering when Luke and I first became friends. I still remember.
I walk into the house,and pull him in with me. "We'll, look what we have here.",my mom says. I blush and let go of his hand. This is embarrassing.
"We're gonna go sit outside.",I say,grabbing two guitars. She nods and I race outside with him." Sorry! My mom is so...oh I don't know!". I hand him a guitar." Know how to play?",I ask. He nods. I bug him to play me a song.
"Fine! But you have to sing with me." I nod. He tells me a few lyrics and were singing. "And if the world ends up falling down to its knees,baby. We just gotta get out. We just gotta get out." I smile as we set the guitars in the grass. I lay back. It's quiet now.
I straddle his lap and smile. "What's wrong? You're not talking!",I say. He shakes his head." Tell me!". He says no. I growl.
A grin forms on his face,and he looks at me." Don't make me tickle you." I gasp.
"You wouldn't." He flips me over and starts tickling my sides. "Luke Whatever your middle name is Hemmings,you stop now!" He leans forward and makes a deal with me.
"If you cuddle with me and kiss me on the cheek,I'll stop. I nod. I lay my head on his chest and drift to sleep.
He shakes me awake." It's ten. I gotta go." I nod and walk him over to the fence. "I need my kiss",he says. I roll my eyes and peck his cheek.
"Night Hemmings." "Night Dawn".
Thinking of that makes me cry harder. Ash hugs me until I stop. "Thanks Ashes.",I say. He helps me up and wipes under my eyes.
"Your poor little eyes. They're all puffy." I shrug and hold him hand as we walk down. My mom isn't there. She probably went to work. I am so grateful in off for the summer. Ash sits down with me on the couch and covers me up. I grab my phone and go text everyone but Luke.
They text back immediately. Hood:<:-/>Kangaroo:<:-/>Rainbow: I smile and go to Instigram. There's another post. It's the same picture,yet it was posted by Luke. It reads:
I messed up again and I don't know how to fix it. Sorry Charlie. Cuddle Invite?
