44. Chapter 43

I paint my nails a shade of magenta. It's been a month since Allison,it's so hard to even think of her,passed. I sigh at the thought and push it aside. I wait for my nails to dry and then go on Instagram. I scroll through my tagged pictures and find a familiar one. I smile as I tap on it and it pops up. The picture of me,the guys,and Allison lying on the ground. I smile and screenshot it. I crop it so it's just the picture,and repost,tagging her profile as well as the guys'. I put my phone down and stand up. My last year of HighSchool begins tomorrow. And I'm nowhere near excited.

*the next day**

I walk to my locker,which is nowhere near Ash's,only Calum and other people I don't really care about. I open it and put my stuff inside. "Okay,so I need to get through my first two classes without Ash,and then I have one with him. Lunch with him. Then two classes without,and then a class with. And another without." I mumble to myself. "Talking to yourself?" Calum asks,making me jump. "Don't scare me like that." I laugh. "So,you went from all classes with Ash to two?" I nod. "I wish I still had all my classes with him."

Lunch,finally. "It was a bummer the class we had together had assigned seats." Ashton says. I nod. "Hopefully the other one doesn't." He smiles "Yeah." We finish up our lunches and put the trays away. We walk to our lockers,which are so far apart,and I grab my books for the next class,Maths. Calum grabs his stuff and walks with me to find Luke so we can go to class. Calum,Luke,and I are in the same Maths class. Luke closes his locker and we walk to class.

I walk home alone,since Michael and the guys are doing who knows what and didn't invite me. I turn into my neighborhood and walk past the park. I walk up the driveway,running my hand across my car as I walk past it,and open the door. I close it behind me and I put my backpack by the stairs real quick so I can grab a snack. "Hey,where's Michael?" Dad asks,coming out of the study. I shrug. "I'm not sure. He and the guys didn't invite me to do whatever it is they're doing so." "Oh,well. How was school?" "It's alright,I guess." He nods. "Any homework?" I shake my head. "No," I grab a granola bar. "So,I saw this video on the computer in the basement a few months ago. Uhm,and it had you,Mom,and Sarah. And I wasn't born yet. So,I was wondering if you were watching it or..." My voice trails off. Dad smiles. "I was going through all my files,so yes I was watching it,I had to leave for work so I left it be. I'm assuming you turned it off." I nod. "Yeah." He hugs me and I grab my bag and go to my room. I grab my laptop and watch the video. I smile.

Laughter. The sound of joy and that you were amused. Coming from downstairs. I put my laptop on my desk and walk through my open door. I lean over the railing to see who was downstairs. Calum,Ashton,Michael,and Luke. "So,how does it feel?" Calum asks. "Okay,I guess." I narrow my eyes. "Oh,hey,Emily." Michael waves to me and I wave back. "Luke got a lip ring." Calum points out. "Oh,does Mama Liz know?" I ask,laughing. "Yes." Luke says. "What's she say?" "She was like,'What? Why'd you do that?' and then she turned to Calum and said,'Oh,and Calum,dear,you look handsome in that shirt.'" I start laughing. Ashton giggles.
