7. Chapter 6
I play foosball with Michael and he starts talking about school. I roll my eyes. "School is so far away from now, Michael." I say. "Still." He flings the ball the wrong way and into his goal. "That counts!" I say and dance around. He laughs. "You win. Anyway," he continues. "Apparently,we're having our annual summer party in two days. Maybe you could find some friends. All most everyone in our grade comes." "Maybe. I'm guessing the guys are coming," He nods. "Is your guys' band playing? I never heard you guys play." I ask. "We might play a few songs we wrote." He grins. "Okay. What's the name of your band anyway?" "It's called 5 Seconds of Summer. I came up with it in math class actually." He answers. "Oh. Cool." I say. He looks over at the clock. "I'm heading to sleep." He says. It's 11:47 pm. He hands up stairs and I wait to hear his door close. I pull out my phone and text Ashton.
Me: Evryones asleep
I go upstairs and put my phone on the desk. I open the balcony door. Ash walks in. "I'm putting pillows under the blanket so it looks like I'm sleeping." I say and do what I explain. I turn off the light and climb down the tree with Ashton. We walk down the street and round the corner.
I climb back inside and wave to Ash. I take off my shoes and change into footie pajamas. It's 2:36 am. I put my phone on my nightstand and I fall asleep. (After moving the pillows. :p)
***Party day (Saturday)***
I put on a All Time Low shirt on and black skinny jeans. I put on black high tops as well. I look at myself in the mirror and smile. The party was just starting. I open my door and the guys were waiting outside my door. "Well? Party casual?" I ask,nervously. They nod. "Now,don't ruin the party." Calum says,laughing. "That's not really funny." Ashton says. He and I are behind the others so we hold hands. Michael turns around before we go down the stairs and sees me and Ash holding hands. He sighs. "We're discussing that later," He gestures to us. "Anyway,people are already there. No too many though." He finishes. Ashton leans into my ear. "He never said we couldn't hold hands." He whispers and I smile. Maybe twenty people are there,which is a lot,but I'm guessing a ton more people are coming. Ashton takes me through the crowd to the place where his drums are set up. "Here,sit," He tells me. I sit on the seat and he takes a picture of me. I get up and Ash sits down. "Sit on my lap." He says and I laugh. I'm not really that heavy,I'm actually really light. I sit on his lap. I look over at Michael and Luke. Luke points to us and Michael laughs. He laughs! Laughs! They come up to us. "What are you doing?" Michael asks,still laughing. I shrug. "They are most likely dating." Luke says. Michael turns to him. "You're an embarrassment." He leaves and Luke follows. "Well that went better than expected." Ash says and we laugh. Ashton's and I walk around as more and more people arrive. I pull up a chair next to the drum set. We just talk for a while. Calum walks up to us. "You weren't really in the backyard that night,were you?" He asks. "We were at the park." I admit. "Don't tell Michael." Ashton warns. "Just asking." Calum says. "Hey,look." Ashton points over to where Michael is standing. He's with a girl. A girl who has blonde,wavy hair. Michael turns and points to us. The girl turns to us and I realize it's Allison. She runs up to us. "Allison,why aren't you in Melbourne?" I ask. "I snuck out of the house. I didn't want to miss the party." She replies. "How'd you find the house?" "Oh,I called your dad." "Seriously Allison? Why'd you have to come here?" She shrugs. "Who's this guy?" She asks pointing to Ashton. "My boyfriend,Ashton. Ash this is Allison,my friend from Melbourne." Ashton nods. "How'd you know who Michael was?" Ashton asks. "Emily described him." "Uh,all I said was that he was taller than me and that he has an eyebrow piercing. There's tons of guys here that are described by those." "I guess it was a lucky coincidence." She runs off to meet other people before we could ask anything else. "She's strange." Ashton says. "Yeah. I know."
