**Three Days Later**
We all double over in laughter,Phoebe,Sophie,Sydney,and I. I smile,still laughing a bit. "Okay,okay." Sophie says. Sydney's face lights up. "What's up,Sydney?" I ask and Phoebe nods. "I have an idea." She grins. "What's your idea?" Phoebe asks Sydney. "We should start a band!" Sydney says. Sophie frowns. "We'd be copying Emily's brother,wouldn't we?" "Well,we could ask if it's alright." Sydney says,putting her hand on her hip,making us laugh again. "Why don't you plan things while I ask them?" I suggest,pulling out my phone. Sydney nods and tells Sophie to get a pencil from the countertop. I tell Phoebe to grab a notebook from the tv stand.
"Okay,we are 2HopelessSkies,or 2HS,Emily is the drummer,Phoebe is bassist,and Sophie and I are guitarists." Sydney says,putting the pencil onto the hardwood floor and it rolls away from her. Phoebe scrambles to get it before it goes under the couch. I smile and my phone beeps. "Finally,Michael." I say to my phone. I read what the text.
Michael:Yeah,I guess you could make a band.
Me: good,cuz we already did
him:why don't u guys come ovr and we could teach u songs?
Michael opens the door and invites us in. The huge house that I once lived in is unchanged. I smile. Ashton comes from the kitchen,and smiles when he sees me. "Hey." He says. "Hi." I reply and Calum and Luke pop out from the kitchen as well. "Okay,who's my student?" Calum asks. "Me." Phoebe says. Calum smiles and nods. "Cool." "So,I'm being taught by Michael,Sophie,you get the giraffe." Sydney says to Sophie. Sophie nods,jumping up and down. "I wonder what little miss cutie is playing." Ashton says,and we giggle. "Whatever you teach me,Ash." I tell him.
"You already know how to play,don't you?" Ashton asks me,and I laugh. "Yeah. Actually. Back in Melbourne I was the drummer in some stupid band. We were freshmans and had no idea what we were doing." I laugh at the memories. I twirl one of Ashton's drum sticks in my hand. "Well,then." Ashton giggles. I smile and look over at Luke teaching Sophie,who looks like she's got it down. Calum and Phoebe laughing after Phoebe messed up. Michael's taking his guitar off from around his neck and places it around Sydney's neck for her to try to do what he showed her. I smile again. "You got this." Calum says to Phoebe. I look over at Ashton,who's smiling. "What songs do you know?" "Basically one. American Idiot." I giggle. He giggles too. "Well,you also know End Up Here,since I just taught you it." I smile. "Right."
"I'd say I did great." I say,dipping a French Fry into ketchup. "She did." Ashton points out. Michael narrows his eyes,taking a sip of his chocolate shake. "I did terrible." Phoebe sighs. "You did fantastic,Phoebe." Calum tells her. "You're just being nice." She sighs again. "I'm pretty sure I'm being honest." Calum smiles. "Well,Sophie did horrible." Luke jokes and takes a bite of his burger. Sophie laughs and rolls her eyes. "I did great,right,Michael?" Sydney finally says and Michael nods. "Just work on the fingering a little more when we get back." He reminds her. We hear a snicker. "Wow,a little date," Chloe says,laughing. I roll my eyes. "How cute." "It's not a date." Luke tells her. "Well,for Ash and Emily it is,but other than that it's not." Michael says. "Yeah." Phoebe agrees. "Sure." Chloe walks off and a girl with short blonde hair follows her. I roll my eyes. "She's a asshole." I tell them.
