Ash:i miss u
Me: i miss u 2
Me:i dont like being sick
Ash: schools boring without u
Me: homes boring without u
Ash:it feels weird not eating lunch by u
Me: come over after school
I sigh and put my phone on my nightstand. I hate being sick. I get up and grab my laptop. I climb back into bed and start watching a few of the guys' singing videos. I smile.
I close my laptop and look at my clock. 2:35. 30 more minutes until school ends. I get up and go downstairs. I'm home alone,which sucks. I lie on the couch and stare at the Christmas tree and the presents under it. I light a peppermint smelling candle and watch the snow flakes fall outside the window. I get up again and grab my coat,scarf,and boots. I step outside and close the front door behind me. I cough and stand at the end of the walkway,watching the snow,and wait for Ashton and Michael,and possibly Allison,Luke,and Calum. I see Ashton walking with Calum. He sees me and runs toward me. "What are you doing outside?" He asks. "Waiting for you." "Come on," He takes me inside and we take off our winter stuff. He hands me my folder. "I turned in all your homework." "I'm glad it's winter break now." I tell him. He smiles at me. "Me too." We sit on the couch and Michael comes in. "Oh hey." He says. "Hi." I reply. "Feeling any better?" He asks. I shrug.
I wake up in Ashton's arms,on the couch in the great room. My throat doesn't hurt anymore and I feel fine. "Hey." Ash says. "Hi." "Feeling better?" "Yeah. What time is it?" I ask him. "11:30maybe." I look out the window. The Christmas lights shine bright and allow me to see snow falling. I nod. "Okay,"I look at the Christmas tree. "When you're famous,and a ton of people love you and are your fans,will you still hold me like this?" I ask him. "Of course. Nothing in this world will ever stop me from holding you and loving you. Not even Michael. Not even famousness,if that's even a word." I laugh. "It is." "But anyway,yeah,it'll change my life. But it won't change us." I smile. "Thanks." I tell him. "For what?" "For loving me." "It's hard not to." We sit there,in silence for a while. I think of what it'd be like,on a tour bus,with the guys,and Allison,traveling places,watching their shows,doing meet and greets. It'd be cool.
