2. Chapter 2
I slipped on a pair of black ripped skinny jeans, a white tank top, and a red and black flannel with a pair of my knee high black converse as I threw my hair up into a messy bun and put on some concealer and mascara. I picked up my friend Ally and we were off to the concert. We left pretty early since it was a 2 hour drive.
~Skips car ride~
We finally got to the concert and after fighting our way to our seats we were finally in section 1 row 5. It was still so unbelievable that I had won the tickets. I had zoned out for the opening act. I kept thinking about the meet & greet after the show.
Finally, 5sos came onto the stage and started singing She Looks So Perfect. The stadium erupted with song as the fans started to sing along with the band. The concert lasted about 3 hours total and then the meet & greet. I took a deep breath as I walked through the doors. There were only about 6 other teenage girls there. I walked over to the band with Ally and we introduced ourselves, hugged them, and took a ton of pictures. Ally wanted to take a few more pictures, so I stepped off to the side. I looked down at my shoes when Ashton started waking over.
"Hey it's Lexi right?" He asked me smiling.
"Yeah. Hi." I said giving him a small smile.
"Lexi, it's like 102 degrees outside right now. Why are you wearing long sleeves?" He asked with a concerned expression crossing his face.
"N...n...no reason." I stuttered nervously.
"Lexi, do you cut?" He asked placing a hand on my shoulder.
I didn't answer. I just stared at him my breath stuck in my throat my words non-existent.
"It gets better. I promise. I know it's hard now, but just don't do it again okay?" He said as he showed me his scars on his arms. He slipped a piece of paper into my pocket and then the rest of the band and Ally came over to join us and then Ally and I left.
I kept thinking about Ashton and his scars. I glanced over at Ally who was riding shotgun. I wonder if the guys new when he was cutting.
