50 Reasons Not to Die{a.i}

"Let's make a deal shall we? You give me 50 days and I'll give you 50 reasons not to die. So one reason each day, and if I fail you're free to try again."
"Fine, you have a deal. And I never got your name, what is it?"
"Ashton, Ashton Irwin."


2. Day 1

"Maybe our favorite quotations say more about us than the stories and people we're quoting," -John Green

Day 1- John Green

Today is Monday, and Ashton is supposed to give me one reason not to die, honestly I don't know why I gave him a chance to save my life. It's not like he actually cares.

"Hello!" A voice says. And here's the man of the hour!

"Hi," I say awkwardly.

"Today we're hanging out, okay?"

"Well umm okay."

"Brooklyn, you're really pretty," Ashton blurts out and I blush. I'm not used to many people calling me pretty.

"Well thank you Mr. Irwin," I smile.

"Since when do you call me Mr. Irwin?"

"Since now," I smirk. "Well I'll see you at 4!"

"Bye Brooklyn! I'll see you later."

"Don't call me Brooklyn! I prefer Brooke."

"Well I'm calling you Brooklyn."

The school day goes by quickly, and I couldn't find any of my friends, so I just counted the hours until Ashton and I go to my house. Apparently Ashton and I need to get to know each other better so after a few hours of questions, we just lay on my bed.

"Irwin, have you read the fault in our stars?" I ask, picking up my copy of the book.

"Nope, who's that by?" He replies.

"John Green, it's an amazing book! Why don't we read it?"

"Sure! What are all those for?" He asks, referring to my bookmarks of my favorite quotes and parts from the book.

"Oh you know, just quotes saved from the book," I reply awkwardly.

"If I were you, I'd highlight them. That's what I do with my books."

"I'm in love with you, he said quietly.

'Augustus,' I said.

'I am,' he said." Ashton read to me. We're currently on page 153, of the book and have been reading for an hour and a half. Ashton and I usually take turns. As he reads, I don't really pay attention to the book, but how he's so into it. "He was staring at me, and I could see the corners of his eyes crinkling. 'I'm in love with you, and I'm not in the business of denying myself the simple pleasure of saying true things. I'm in love with you, and I know that love is just a shout out into the void, and that oblivion is inevitable, and that we're all doomed and that there will come a day when all our labor has been returned to dust, and I know the sun will swallow the only earth we'll ever have, and I am in love with you." Ashton finishes.

"Well umm I guess I should go, maybe we can finish it tomorrow?" I don't want Ashton to go, he's actually really nice. I didn't think I'd end up liking him, not in that way, but you know what I mean.

"Yeah, umm I'll see you at school!" Once he leaves, I'm left alone with just me, and my thoughts. Why did I give Ashton a chance to save me?

My phone vibrates, and I pick it up from my nightstand.

From Ashton:

Reason one - John Green
