I smile,not exactly a sweet smile,let's call it a sour smile,at Michael's,and I guess my,obnoxious cousin,A.M.,which stands for Anne May,stupid name I know. "Don't you have someone else to annoy?" I ask,frustrated. "Don't you have a boyfriend to talk to?" I open my mouth in a O shape. "Actually,I do." "Then where is he?" "He's over by Michael." I point to Ashton and A.M. turns and sees him. "Yeah,like he's your boyfriend." I roll my eyes and walk over to Ashton,leaving A.M. alone to talk to herself or whoever she finds. She just sits there watching me. "Michael,A.M. is being the obnoxious little brat she is." "She's been that way for the 7 years she's been in my life." "I'm glad that Max guy didn't show up." Ashton tells me. I put my hands on his shoulder. "Ashton,I didn't tell him about it so we'll be alright." He smiles at me. "Good." He kisses me and then takes my hand. I look over at A.M. and grin. She rolls her eyes and walks away. I turn back to Ashton. "Who's Anne May talking to?" Michael asks,pointing. I sigh and look. My eyes widen and Ashton face palms. "What's he doing here?" "Don't ask me,I didn't invite him,or even tell him." I say in defense. A.M. points over to us and Max looks over at us. I sigh and Ashton frowns. "And of course she has to show him where we are." Michael shakes his head. Max makes his way over to us. "Hey,nice party." He tells us. "How'd you know there's a party here?" Ashton asks,getting to the point. "Calum told me." I look over at Calum who's,of course,looking all innocent,but I don't believe it. "Why'd he tell you?" Michael asks. "He just did." "Yeah,sure,like Calum would do that." Ashton says. "I swear he did." "Sure,sure." "I'm telling the truth!" "Why would he tell you?" "I don't know." "How'd he even tell you?" "Instagram." Michael and I just stand there,not doing a thing,but breathing and standing,and of course listening,duh. "Why are you stalking my sister and friends?" Michael just asks. I glare at him. "I'm most certainly not." Calum and Luke come over here. "What's going on?" Luke asks. "Who invited this dude?" "He's trying to tell us you did." I reply. "I did not." "Yes,you did." I roll my eyes. "Okay,I'm just done." I say. "What do you mean?" "I'm done with all this foolishness. Who invited you?" I ask. "Calum." Max plainly states. "I didn't." Calum looks me in the eyes. I nod. "Okay,let's try this again. Who invited you?" "Basically,it was Calum." "What do you mean?" Luke asks. "Megan asked Calum,which I don't know how she found out,and she told me I was invited by Calum." Max says. "Megan is mad at us for no apparent reason,so why would she want some one to come?" Michael asks. "Yeah,I'm not connecting the dots." Ashton says. "I don't know." "Okay,well,enjoy the party." I say and Max walks away. "I'm not entirely sure what's happening,but it's most likely not gonna be good." Michael says and we all nod.
I sing along to "This is Gospel," by Panic! At the Disco as it booms through the speakers in the party room. Max stands beside me. "Hey." "Hi." "It seems like Ashton doesn't like me." Max says,looking at the dancing lights. "He's just jealous." I tell him. "Jealous? Of me?" "He thinks you'll take his spot in my life and he'll downgrade to a friend." I reply. He nods. "You guys are closer than you and I could ever be. He shouldn't be worried." I smile. "Does that mean you don't have feelings for me anymore?" I ask,casually. "No,no. I do,but I don't stand a chance against City Boy." I laugh. "You're a city boy,too." "So?" We laugh again. He turns to me. "You know," He begins. "I still remember that one day,where you and I had to sit under the bleachers in the rain." Bleachers in the rain. Bleachers in the rain. Bleachers...in...the rain. Michael and Allison sat under the bleachers in the rain. I nod,slowly. "Yeah,me too." Even though I don't really remember that at all. "So,where is Ashton,anyway?" He changes the subject and turns back to the lights. "I dunno." I say. "Shouldn't you know?" "Probably." I sigh and smile. Max turns my head to face his and kisses me. I pull away and smile. "I'm taken,remember?" I say. He nods. "I know." He walks off and I slide down the wall and sit on the floor. I knew something bad was gonna happen. I knew it. I knew it I knew it. I just kne-Ashton interrupts my thoughts. "What the fuck?" He asks. I stand up. "Ashton,he kissed me." "What? Who? I was just looking for you." "Oh." I look away. "Who fucking kissed you?" "Nevermind it was a..dream. Yeah,a really weird dream that I was t-think about." "Emily,quit lying,even though I think it's cute when you lie. Anyway,just tell who kissed you," I don't answer. "Wait,it wasn't him who kissed you. You kissed him then." He says. I shake my head. "No. There was no kissing!" "No,I bet there was. I'm done. We're done." Ashton walks away and tears fall down my face. I slide back down the wall and sit back down. I put my head in my hands,crying,as "Right Now" by: One Direction plays. I look up and adjust my beanie. No one notices me,but my dog. Jay sits beside me and licks my hand.
I've been sitting here for at least 30 minutes and Jay's been beside me the whole time. Cashmere smiles at me. "Why so sad?" She asks,sitting beside Jay. I rub my eyes. "Ashton broke up with me because he thought I kissed my old friend." "Maybe it was for best." "I love Ashton." "He probably still loves you." "How do you know that?" I ask. "I've known Ashton for awhile now," She smiles. "I'll let you think for awhile." I nod and she walks away. Jay leaves too. I smile as he rounds the corner. I look down at the necklace that Ashton got me for my 17th birthday. I tuck under my shirt. I go upstairs and go to my bathroom. I wipe off the makeup and take out my contacts. I change into reindeer footie pajamas and put on my glasses. I take off my beanie and pull my hair into a high ponytail. I nod at myself in my mirror and grab my phone. I tuck into a pocket in my pajamas. I step out of my room and go downstairs. "Hey." Luke makes me jump. "Oh my fucking God. Don't do that ever again,Luke." I playfully hit his shoulder. "So,why were you on the floor crying earlier?" He asks. I narrow my eyes at him. "How'd you know?" He grins. "I know all." "Seriously,tell me." "I'd have to kill you after I told you." I giggle. "Ashton broke up with me." "Why?" He tilts his head. "He thought I kissed someone. Although nothing happened." Luke nods. "Welcome to the single group." I wrinkle up my nose. "I don't want to be in the same group as you." He laughs. "Too bad." He picks me up and I laugh. He carries me outside. "Luke,stop!" He puts me on the patio. "I'll throw you in the snow if you insult me and my group one more time." We laugh. "Your group is," I pause. "Horrible." Luke gasps. "I'm gonna have to punish you for that." We laugh. "Are you gonna throw me in the snow?" I giggle. "Something even better." "Like what?" "You ready?" He asks. "I'm not sure,I don't know what you're gonna do." "Good." He smiles and I tilt my head. He kisses me and my brain squeals and screams bloody murder at the same time. "That's all you got,Hemmings?" "I could do better if-" He pauses. "If what?" "If you were my girlfriend." "Are you asking me out?" I ask,giggling. "Is that a yes?" I smile and nod. "Sure,Luke."
