13. Chapter 13
We all stepped out of the plane and were instantly surrounded by screaming teenage girls. The security guards had to start holding people back when they tried to pull Calum over the railing. I hid behind Ashton. Crowds were never my strong suit. We finally got to the limo that was waiting for us after fighting out way out of the crowd of fans.
I climbed into the limo quickly and shrunk into my seat as I pulled my hair back into a ponytail. The color was completely drained from my face. Ashton wrapped his arm around me. I was shaking, freezing, but to him I was burning up.
"Lexi? Are you okay? You look awful and you're burning up." He asked concerned placing the back of his hand on my forehead and cheeks.
"Yeah...yeah I'm fine. I just..need some water." I breathed as I stood up to grab a water bottle. I didn't want to tell him what was really wrong with me. Yes, I was incredibly sick. I had struggled off and on with anorexia for about 4 years and that had caused my health to diminish immensely. I didn't want to tell Ashton, I couldn't tell Ashton. My knees buckled and I collapsed on to the floor of the limo. My vision became blurry. I saw Ashton and Luke at both my sides.
"Lexi? Lexi are you okay? What's wrong?" Luke asked hastily as he pulled my head onto his knee as Ashton yelled at the driver to rush us to the hospital.
"Don't tell Ashton..." I choked before my vision went black and I became unconscious.
