**Two Days Later**
My eyes flutter open and I see sunlight streaking in from the window. Ashton's holding me in my bed. I guess he never went home after the movie. His arms move. "What are you doing here? I thought you were gonna go home after the movie." I ask,still lying down. He yawns. "I was,but you fell asleep and you looked so peaceful,so I stayed." I smile and sit up. I get up and open my bedroom door,leaving Ashton alone in my bedroom. I walk into the kitchen. "Ashton's still here?" Phoebe asks. I nod. She narrows her eyes at me. "I'm not washing-" "We didn't have sex,Phoebe." I laugh. "Good. Sophie and Sydney are getting doughnuts. Ashton lumbers down the hallway. "Hey." He says to Phoebe. "Don't flirt with me." Phoebe says,laughing. "He's not." I tell her. "I know," She replies, I shake my head and Ashton sits on the barstool. I set my chin on his head. "Oh,by the way,Josh is coming over with Tyler later. It's their last day in Australia for now," Phoebe frowns. "I'm gonna miss my Joshypoo." "You'll be fine. I spent two years without Ash." I say,getting out two mugs to fill up with chocolate milk. I give one to Ashton. "That's different. Me and Josh are actually together." She points out. "Shut up." Ashton giggles.
It's pouring rain,thundering even,and I'm standing at my father's doorstep,ringing the doorbell over and over. My hair's soaking wet,and my mascara is probably smeared,since I didn't not put on my waterproof. The door opens and Mum's face gives me a worried look. She take so my wrist and drags me inside. "What are you doing here?" She asks,taking my jacket off me. "Actually,you know what. Go take a shower in your old bedroom. I'll get some of your pajamas you left from the basement." I nod,slipping off my tennis shoes and go upstairs to my old bedroom. I enter it and it's empty,besides the mattress leaning on the wall,and a box. I go into the bathroom and search for makeup wipes,I successfully find them and Mum walks in. She hands me the pajamas and a towel. "Thanks." I say and she leaves. I wipe off all my makeup and strip down. I take a quick shower,noticing that my favorite brand of shampoo,conditioner,and body wash are all in new containers. I get dressed into the pajamas and go downstairs. Thunder booms from outside. Mum hands me a cup of hot chocolate. "What were you doing out there?" She asks. "My car broke down as I was driving back home from the burger place,and my phone is back at the house." I sigh. "Okay,I'll call the tow place." Mum replies,walking into the kitchen. I nod,and walk back upstairs to my old room. I walk over to the box and go through it. A thick book sits on top of the pile,and I pick it up. I open it and see the picture of me,Allison,and the guys lying on the ground in the backyard. I smile to myself and turn the page to reveal a bunch of pictures that were secretly taken at parties and during sleepovers. I set down the book beside me and pick up the necklace with a silver....heart pendant. The one Ashton gave me. I remember that day I shoved this and other things in the box,all except for the photo album.
