56. Chapter 55
**Two weeks later**
Graduation. This is crazy. Mom takes pictures of me and Michael in our cap and gowns and then some of the guys and me,and more and more. Everyone's families walk to the school and we talk. The families go to the bleachers and the graduates enter the school. I hold Ashton's hand as we walk. "This is crazy." I say. "Yeah." "It's in alphabetical order guys,we're not sitting by each other." Michael frowns. My smiles fades. "Right." I sigh. "But after,we'll celebrate. Remember,all the grads and families are coming to the party at your guys' house." Luke reminds us. I nod. "Right." We all split up and I go all the way to the end of the line. Well,not all the way,but it's at the end. More and more people show up and get in line. And at last,time to go outside and graduate. The line moves forward and we take our seats in front of the stage. The talk and it's boring. And talk some more. And more. Until,diploma time. Finally. The line moves,one at a time. Michael passes. Random people. Luke. Random people. Calum. More random people. Ashton. More and more Random people. Me. I smile broadly and shake the principal's hand and he hands me my diploma. Now,I can meet up with the guys. I find them and other peoples' names are called. "We're not fully graduated yet." Luke says. I tilt my head. "How?" "We didn't do the hat thing." he explains. I nod. The last name is called. "I present the class of 2014." We throw our caps up with every one else. (We have one at home so we didn't lose ours.) We meet up with our families and have hugs.
The music blasts. I walk out from the dining room. I gasp when I see him. I run to him and hug him. "Oh how I've always wanted to hug my internet bestie," I tell Louis. Then hug the other boys. "What are you doing here?" I ask. "Well,the Aussie tour kicks off in a few days,so we came to Sydney,early!" Lou tells me. Ashton comes from the party room and smiles. Michael follows. "Hey." Michael hugs them. Ashton does too. We talk for awhile. "Well,have fun guys." I say,smiling. I go into the party room and Ashton takes my hand. "Michael has an idea. In a few hours,the music's turning off and we're having a bonfire outside." He tells me and I nod. "Cool."
"Come on,guys,sing us a song." I say at the fire. "We got nothing." Ashton says,being the spokesperson for 5SOS. "We could sing a few of our songs." Liam shrugs. They decide to play "Little Things," "Over Again," "Half a Heart," and "Rock Me." I sing along to every word. "Hey,you promised us you'd show us your piano skills when we met." Louis elbows me. "Well,I can't bring the piano outside." I say,easy way to get out of playing in front of all these people. "We can go inside." Harry says. Didn't think of that. "Right." I reply. Michael puts out the fire and we all go to the great room. "Well,what song?" I ask. "What song do you want to do?"Michael asks. "I'm not sure," I think for a minute. "Aha. The song I know by heart. 'Ours' by Taylor Swift," I play that song,hitting every note perfectly,I think. Everyone claps when I finish. "Thank you oh-so very much." I laugh.
