19. Chapter 18
"Come on,Babe,please come with us." Ashton says to me. He wants me to go ice skating with the others. "I don't like ice skating." I tell him. "Look at how much fun they're having." He points to Allison and Michael,then Cal and Luke. Calum's laughing at Luke for falling. Then he falls himself. I laugh. "I'd rather watch." "Come on,I'll hold you the entire time," Ashton says. He makes puppy dog eyes. "Please?" I sigh. "Fine." I say,adjusting my beanie. He grabs the extra pair of skates and helps me put them on. He takes my hand and we walk out onto the ice. "Whoo!" Allison yells throughout the building. We are the only ones there. Michael reserved the whole place for us. I hug Ashton tight and trust him. "It's okay,just have fun," He tells me. "Watch I can go really fast,take my hand." I hold his hand and he goes fast and I laugh. "Look,she's having fun!" Luke says. "See. I knew you'd like it once you'd try it," Ash tells me. "Wanna try it on your own?" I hesitate. "For a little bit." I say and he nods. He skates away and I'm stranded there. "It's just like rollerskating," I tell myself. "It's where you can skate around on a hard floor and have fun,even if you fall," I mumble. I remember the tricks I could do rollerskating. "This should be fairly easy." I nod and skate forwards. I spin around on one foot and glide to the side. I push off,just like I would do rollerskating,and do a spin. Allison skates up to me. "Just like you did rollerskating." She says. I nod. "I told myself it was like rollerskating." She smiles. "Having fun?" She asks. "Yeah,I am." "Good." She skates off and I fix my beanie,looking over at Calum,whose laughing at himself. Luke's slipping but,laughing. Michael is picking up Allison,they're laughing. Ashton skates toward me. "Hey,nice tricks you did. How'd you do it? I thought you didn't like ice skating." He asks. "I can roller skate and told myself it's just like that." He smiles at me. "Good." He kisses me and lifts me up.
We go home after an hour. I lie on my bedroom floor,thinking about Ashton. My phone buzzes. Aaaaaaannnnnddddd it's....not Ashton. It's Calum. Telling me to go on my balcony. I grab my coat and put on my extra boots. I open the door and see huge words spelled in the yard. And Ashton lying beside them. "I love you!!!!" He yells,reading out the words. I laugh. "I love you too!" I say. "Come down here!" He gets up. I go downstairs and go into the front yard. I hug Ash. And kiss him. "Eww,gross." Calum says. Ashton flips him off while we kiss.
