I strum the guitar along with the boys and get ready to sing. I smile at Luke. We're both gonna sing. Let's go.
"Tongue-tied. Let me think it over. How we gonna fix this? How we gonna un-do all the pain? Tell me,is it even worth it? Looking for a straight line. Takin back the time we can't replace. All the crossed wires. Just making us tired. Is it too late,to bring us back to life".
They let me sing the chorus with Luke.
"When I close my eyes and try to sleep, I fall apart and find it hard to breathe. But you're the reason. The Only Reason. Even though it doesn't hurt it's love. I swear my heart is never giving up. And you're the reason. The Only Reason. ",we sing. I clap. I'm impressed.
"If you ever need help with a song, come to me.",I say. Mikey smiles.
"Bot of course. Who else would I call to dye my hair, make me food, and write my songs?",he jokes. I nod. "Speaking of hair dye...",he says, ruffling through a bag on the floor," Wanna help me dye it?". I nod.
"What color you doing?". I hope it's blonde. Please let me do a blonde Mikey!!!
"Your favorite of all." I squeal. He's doing it blonde!
"Yay! Come on. Let's go to my bathroom.",I say,grabbing the dye from his hand. "I need you to re-do mine,too.",I beg. He nods. I hug him." Thank you!". He follows me. I'm dying blonde Mikey!!!
I look in the mirror. It looks even better than the first time. I hug Mikey and ruffle his hair. "Perfect blonde!",I say. He nods and we walk back downstairs. "We're back!",I yell. I walk over to the kitchen. Looking in the fridge, I realize all we have is cold pizza. "Shit!",I mumble.
"Who taught you that word, Car?", Ash asks." I didn't think that was in your damn vocabulary."
"Who taught you that word,Ashley. I knew that was in your vocabulary.", I joke. I have an idea. What if..." Can you take me to the grocery store?",I ask sweetly. He nods. I jump on his back and let him carry me in the living room.
"Alright! Line up, soldiers!",I yell,making Ash drop me and get in line with the boys. "Ow". I smile and peel myself off the floor. "We are going on a big mission!", I say, walking back and forth. "Grocery shopping!".
"You are to grab all the essentials. Milk, water, cheese, vegetables, fruit, meat, cake, soda, sweets, juice, ice cream, plastic cups, ice cream, and alcohol!",I demand.
"Miss,yes,Miss!!!",they say in unison.
"Alright let's go!!!", I yell, rushing outside and into the car.
We all grab our buggies and head our separate ways: Mikey and Ashton,Calum,and me and Luke. I'm not in love. I'm just not. I can't be. I told myself not to fall in love with him. Not with my best friend. Or ex-best friend. Are we? Uh!!!!
I grab things on my list and throw them in the ubuggy. I may add a little too much ice cream... We walk to the self check out area and start ringing up stuff. I confiscate money from them. I look over at Luke and smile. He's used to be my only reason.
