I woke up in pain, my entire body ached and I couldn't feel anything below my waist. I tried to look over at Ashton, but it hurt to move.
"Ashton." I breathed through the tears.
"Hmm?" He asked half awake.
"Ashton it hurts." I cried again.
"What does?" He said jumping to my side, fully awake.
"Everything. My entire body hurts. I...I can't move. I can't feel my legs."
"Oh God, um okay." He stammered as he got up from the bed.
I was sobbing now, it hurt so bade. Why was this happening to me? It was probably because we had sex and Ashton was way too rough.
"Okay, just work with me for a minute." He breathed nervously as he wrapped his arm around my back and swung me up into his arms. I screamed in pain as he moved me. I saw Calum and Luke run in, stunned looks crossed their faces.
"Oh, um, is everything okay you two we um..." Calum trailed off his face turned red as he turned away and covered his eyes. Luke, however was not as shy. He walked over to Ashton and I.
"What the hell did you do to her?" He growled.
"I...I don't know. She woke up in pain. We had sex last night and I guess I might've been a bit too rough..." Ashton sighed.
"You think?! Turn around." He sighed.
Ashton turned around and I saw Luke shake his head. Ashton's back was covered in scratches, some of which were bleeding.
"You were way too rough, Mate. This was her first time, you've got to be gentle. Look at her, her body is covered in bruises and she can't walk." I saw Luke fighting every instinct to punch Ashton's lights out. Anger flashed in his eyes as he walked to the bathroom and started the water. Ashton carried me in and set me down gently in the steaming hot water.
"You're gonna be just fine Lex, you've just got to give your muscles some time to relax, they're overworked. I'm so so sorry. I should've been more gentle. This is all my fault." He said dropping his head.
"Ashton...." I sighed and brought his chin up, so he could meet my eyes.
"This is not your fault. This was my choice, remember? And I don't regret that decision. I'm glad we did it, it was really amazing." I smiled, trying to comfort him.
"But what if you can't walk again? What if I permanently screwed you up? I couldn't live myself if that was the case, the last thing I ever wanted was to hurt you." He said softly as he eyes became glassy, I could tell he was fighting back tears.
"I know. I know. I'm going to be fine, alright? It's all going to be okay." I whispered bringing his head to my shoulder.
"Ashton?" I asked quietly as I twirled a lock of his hair around my finger.
"I love you." I breathed.
"I love you too Lexi."
