I heard the door slam and Calum's bedroom door shut a few moments later. I went out to the lounge and saw y/n sitting there. She was getting her bag ready to go back to her dorm. I hadn't seen Emily or Luke very often and Ashton and Calum hadn't really been themselves since the crash. I felt bad for her and felt that I should be the one to comfort her. Ashton still hadn't asked her out and he was wasting his and her time. The longer he waited the less interest she had in him, he was driving her away. She was the only one that paid any attention to me whatsoever. The band was falling apart and we didn't see each other apart from the rare occasion at school.
I was watching her tie her blonde curls up into a messy bun that didn't really work and she wasn't wearing any make-up but still managed to look effortlessly beautiful. I wish I could tell her I liked her, I need to tell her, I want to tell her I like her but that wouldn't be fair on Ashton. She turned around and saw me stood in my doorway. I then noticed that she had tears in her eyes. She stood up from the sofa, ran up to me and hugged me tight. She began to cry on my shoulder.
"Do you want to go on a walk?" I asked her. She nodded her head. I took her hand and walked out of the door to a park down the road. There wasn't anyone there so we sat leant up against the fence. We talked for a while and I built up the courage to tell her..it felt like the right thing to do.
"y/n....I have something I need to tell you..."I said quietly. She must of noticed that I was nervous as she placed her hand on top of mine and held it tight.
"You can tell me anything, you can trust me" she said with a smile. I nodded, took a deep and closed my eyes.
"I like you..." I blurted quickly. There was a long silence, she was still smiling but she wasn't speaking. I looked over at her and we made eye contact. I leant in and she leant in...our lips were so close to touching but at the last minute she turned her head and looked down at her lap.
"I can't do this.."she exclaimed. "I like you Michael I do, it's just that I don't feel like this would be a good idea at the moment with Ashton and Calum being the way they are at the moment. I don't think the band need another argument" she sighed and rested her head on my shoulders. I hugged her and we sat therein silence until we decided to go back to the dorms.
