**two days later**
I hug Ashton tight. "I wish I didn't have to go." "You don't." "I want to keep my car though." We laugh and pull apart. He wipes away a tear rolling down my cheek. I hug Michael,Luke,Calum,Harry,Lou,Zayn,Liam,and Niall. "We'll call you whenever we can." Michael assures me. "And text!"
Niall smiles. "Oh! And Video Chat!" Calum says. I nod. Ashton hugs me one more time and then puts his forehead against mine and squeezes my hand. "Don't go around dating other guys,okay?" he whispers. "I won't,Ashton. I promise." I whisper back. He kisses me.
I listen to music,and by music,I mean the guys. The guys as in,One Direction and 5 Seconds of Summer. My friends,my brother,and my boyfriend. I stare out the window. And hope I can go back to them. Hope. Hope. Hope.
Here I am. At home. In Sydney. Australia. And my boyfriend,brother,and best friends are in Europe. Far,far away from here. "So,I got you this job at the café. And you need your money by the end of the month,okay?" Dad asks. "Okay." I say and he walks away. I put on the stupid uniform and put my hair in a bun. I grab my keys and drive to the café. I sigh and walk inside and the lady tells me to take orders and how to do it,before she opens up the shop. I meet my coworkers. "This is Jamie," Jamie waves. She's tall,has dark skin,beautiful brown eyes,and skinny. I smile. "That's Kyle," Kyle is tall,pale,brown wavy hair,and is also skinny. He waves and I wave back. "And lastly,that's Sydney." Sydney turns around at the sound of her name. "Sydney!" I say and hug her. "I thought you were on tour." She says. "Tour?" Kyle asks. "I'm Michael Clifford's step sister and Ashton Irwin's girlfriend." I tell them. Jamie nods. "So you were with 5 Seconds of Summer and One Direction,but then decided to come work here?" Jamie asks. "Well,I have to pay for my car so my dad told me I had to come get a job or let my car get taken away. And I love my car. Michael gave it to me a year ago." Kyle nods. "Ah." Sydney smiles. "Well,welcome to Jerk Town,Australia." Sydney says. "What do you mean?" I ask and Kyle smiles. Kara,the manager,opens up the shop. "You'll see,Tour Girl." I nod.
"Today wasn't that bad." I say after we closed up shop. "This is the usual but there are some days were it's worse." Jamie says as I wash the counter. "Hey,but don't worry. We got you." Sydney says. My phone buzzes. Luke. I tilt my head and read the text.
Luke: Ash misses you
Me:I miss him too
Luke:R u home?
Sydney reads over my shoulder. "We don't get off for another hour." She tells me and I nod. I put the chairs into place of the tables with Kyle. Sydney cleans the back counter and Jamie sweeps the floor.
