2. Chapter 1
Now here I am, 9 years later. Sitting in an aitport about to board my flight to go back to Sydney. I'm really excited to go back home but at the same time... I'm scared. I'm afraid my mum is going to be different. I'm afraid that she's gotten married, or had kids. I'm scared she's moved out of the house I grew up in. But most of all, I'm afraid to see Ashton.
What if he hates me? What if he doesn't remember me? What if he's moved away? As I overthink everything I hear an announcment. "Flight 231 to Sydney, Australia is now boarding." I grab my carry on bag and walk on the plane. When I sit down I plug in my headphones and stare out the plane window.
When the next song plays through my earbuds, tears brim my eyes. Why? Oh, you must be confused. When I was in California, I constantly asked my mom how Ashton was doing. There was this one time she told me he was in a band called 5 Seconds of Summer. Being me, I looked them up. I enjoyed their music so I added some to my playlist.
Back to the present now. The song playing through my earbuds was "Beside You" I don't realize I'm crying until I hear someone ask me if I'm okay. "Yes, I'm fine, I'm just going to miss California." I lie. "Oh, of course. I just wanted to make sure you were going to be alright." The elderly women smiles then turns back towards her friend next to her.
I turn and look back out the window as the plane takes off. I wave goodbye to California and to my dad, wishing I could see him one last time. A few more tears roll down my cheek before I drift off to sleep.
A/N: Sorry this chapter is so sucky I wrote it during my fourth period general music class XD (which is a class of freshman and I'm a sophomore and they are annoying -_-) Stay beautiful!
