**Two Days later**
5 hours away from home. Crazy. "Why don't you come on stage with us tonight?" Ashton asks me. "Maybe tomorrow,I don't feel up to it." "Why?" "Well,I don't have any makeup on for starters and plus it's your show." He begins to argue with me until he finally bursts,I'm already in tears and he has to go on stage in a minute. "Fine,then! Hide away! I don't want to date a hider! I'm done!" He yells and follows Luke and Calum and Michael. I rush back to where the other guys are,still in tears. Louis grabs my hand as I begin to open the door. "Where are you going?" I take off the stupid necklace Ashton gave me and throw it on the ground. "I'm going home," I say through tears. I go to the bus and grab all my stuff. I make sure I have everything and then I go to one of the vans where a driver,Marcus,is standing. "Here's money for gas and a hotel,just take me home." I hand him money,still crying,and put my stuff in the trunk. I climb in and Marcus does too. We begin to drive and I cry and cry and cry.
It's pitch black and I've finally calmed myself down. I climb out of the van and take all my bags. Dad opens the door,probably wondering who's in his driveway. I put my stuff down and hug him tight,sobbing again. "What's wrong,honey? What's wrong? Why are you back home so fast?" He asks. I just cry. It's what I do. Cry. He picks up my bags and I walk inside and collapse onto a couch in the great room and sob. That's all I can do. Sob. My phone rings. I leave it be. Ring. Ring. Ring. Over and Over and Over. For hours. Hours. Karen and Dad comfort me,even though they don't know what's wrong. All alone,with the kitchen light shining,kinda,I wipe all my tears away,or most of them. Dad comes down and sits beside me. "What's up?" He asks. "Ashton asked me if I wanted to go on stage tonight and I said maybe tomorrow and stuff like that and he just got all mad at me and then broke up with me and Louis tried to stop me but it didn't work." I say,crying again. He hugs me and talks to me and tries to comfort me. "We can talk more in the morning." He tells me and goes upstairs. Ring. Ring. Ring. More calls. And more. I look at my missed calls. Harry. Michael. Luke. Louis. Zayn. Cal. Niall. Liam. Ashton. All of them. More of the stupid ringtones. "Stop calling meeeeeeeeeee." I say,bumping my head on the wall once for each word. Allison would know what to do. But she's not here. Ring. Ring. Ring. Jay comes downstairs,sees me,gets all excited and runs to me. I giggle and pet him. Ring. Ring. Ring. He tilts his head at me. I press ignore. Ring. Ring. Ring. I probably should put my phone on silent,but I'm not going to. Jay goes back upstairs and I'm all alone. Again. Ring. Ring. Ring. Ring. Ring. Ring. It stops. For a minute. Ring. Michael. I answer it. "She answered!" He exclaims. "What do you want,Michael? I'm trying to sleep." "Where are you?" He asks. "I'm at home,Michael." "No,you're not." "Yeah,I am." "Then FaceTime us." "It's dark. I'm sitting in the great room all alone in the dark,but okay." I say and he hangs up,I FaceTime him and his face appears. "Turn on the light." He instructs. Harry and Luke's faces appear behind Michael. I sigh and turn on the light. "Here I am,in the great room. Of the house. In Sydney." I say. "You really are at home." Michael says. "Yeah,I am. What do you want?" "Why didn't you answer our calls before?" Harry asks. "Oh,I'm sorry,was I supposed to while crying my eyes out?" "Very well then." Harry says. "Ashton was just over reacting." Luke explains. "Oh well,he broke up with me,so him and I are done." I say and click decline.
I turn onto my other side. I can't sleep. Ring. Ring. Ring. The sunlight is seeping through the window. I was up all night. Ring. Ring. Ring. And also were they. More missed calls from Harry,Louis,Luke,Niall,Calum,Michael,Liam,Zayn,Ashton. I sigh and put on silent. Jay comes downstairs and I play and pet him. The doorbell rings. "At this hour?" I ask Jay and answer it. Ashton.
