36. ch.36

I woke up to the sun filling the room. Until I realized, arms were wrapped around me, I carefully wriggled out of his arms, sat up and looked at who I had been lying next was Ashton. My eyes widened.

"Oh shit." I whispered. I bent down and kissed his forehead. Then grabbed his grey shirt from the ground and put it over my head. It was still damp from the rain yesterday. I contemplated staying for a minute but I knew I had to go. Ashton stayed asleep and I slipped out the door, ran across the hall and back into my room. I looked at the clock, 8:30 I quickly threw on some clothes. I thought about returning Ashton's shirt but I decided to keep it unless he asked for it back. I brushed out my hair, slipped into my sneakers and headed out the door assuming everyone would be in the boy's room. I walked in.

"HEYYYY!" Everyone said happy to see me. Calum got up from sitting down and hugged me so did Luke, Michael and Nebraska. I took a deep breath and looked around for Ashton, I couldn't see him. 

"I'm so glad to still be touring with you guys." I said thankfully.

"Were glad to have you." Michael said smiling. I smiled and Ashton walked out of the bathroom. 

"Hey." I said.

"Hey." He said and smiled at me. We talked and laughed and soon headed out to the show. It was a great show. I got to watch from the lighting area like I occasionally do, I love it up there I listened to them play and thought back to when I was just working in Montana and was just starting to listen to five seconds of summer. And now I'm touring with them and possibly have a romantic relationship with one of the members. But I didn't want to think about that right now I just wanted to listen to music. 


After the show the guys still had a lot of energy so we decided to go to a club. Luke, Michael, Nebraska and Calum snuck in with fake ID's. We got in and started dancing. Some girl was dancing with Ashton and I was starting to get jealous and I didn't wanna be that girl, honestly I was kind of confused about our relationship at that point so I decided to dance with my friends. We didn't notice Michael and Nebraska leave so it was just me Luke and Calum until Michael came back in and grabbed me on the shoulder, I stopped dancing and looked at him, his face was a mix of worried and angry. Luke and Calum looked at him too now. He didn't say anything he just dragged me out quickly by my shoulder and Calum and Luke followed. He dragged me out the back door and I saw Ashton holding his face and Daniel sitting up against the building with his hand on his face.

"What the hell happened?" I said looking at Michael. Nebraska stood next to Ashton with her arms crossed.

"Daniel and Ashton got in a fist fight." Michael said point blankly. I walked right up to Daniel and kicked him right in the stomach.

"asshole!" I walked up to Ashton jumped into his arms and wrapped my legs around his waist, he held me up. I placed thousands of kisses all over his face, he just laughed. 

"Are you okay?" I asked.

"Yeah I'm fine." He said smiling. I looked at his face there was a small red mark under his eye were Daniel must've hit him, nothing major. I walked close to Daniel now and inspected his face.

"Move your hand." I said crouching down next to him. He had what looked like a black eye starting to form and his nose was starting to swell up. I stood up.

"How many times did you hit him?" I asked and ran my fingers through my hair. 

"One..." He said looking down feeling guilty. Then I looked at Ashton's hand and his arms and realized just how much damage a punch from him might do. I heard Luke and Calum trying not to laugh, I turned around and looked at them and they stopped.

"What happened?" I said looking back at Michael. Nebraska started telling me what happened.

Nebraska's POV

Me and Michael were dancing with Miranda, Luke and Calum. I saw Ashton dancing with some girl wondered what he was doing. Accordingly to what Michael said he was really into Miranda. I just decided to Ignore her. Michael took me by my hand out the back door and he put me up against the wall and kissed me. Then I heard someone who sounded like Daniel yelling. I didn't know much about Daniel just that he always sulked around our room and was apparently in love with Miranda......And Miranda and Ashton were just kissing and Daniel knows about it.....Oh shit! I pulled Michael's face away from mine and he kissed my neck and I saw Daniel and Ashton yelling at eachother. 

"Michael....." I whispered. He grunted and kept kissing me.

"Michael!" I said louder and looked at me smiling, he turned around to where I was looking. His demeanor changed, He was suddenly worried.

"Oh shit!" He said. He walked over and I closely followed behind him. 

"Look I just don't think it's appropriate to be kissing my partner!" Daniel said.

"Your partner? You never help her, she's always pulling your weight." Ashton said back. Then Daniel punched Ashton in the face. Ashton sat there for a minute then returned the favor. Daniel flew back and me and Michael sat there in awe. 

"What the hell did you just do?" Michael asked walking toward Daniel.

"Stop!" I yelled and grabbed Michael's arm he stopped.

"Go get Miranda and the other boys I'll stay here with them."  Then Michael walked off into the back door.

"Daniel...." I said. "Why did you hit him?" 

"Can I just, can I talk to you over there?" Daniel asked.

"Sure I guess." I said and Daniel got up and we walked off to where no one could hear us.

"Okay, what is it?" I asked fearing the worst.

"Well, I don't know, I heard about the whole news story thing and you almost getting fired so I wanted to talk to Ashton about it..." Daniel started.

" don't need to-"

"Let me finish!" I shut up. 

"I just....I thought I could forget about you and continue on working with you but I can't, Miranda?"


"I'm still in love with you and I want you to go back to Montana with me." My heart dropped. Ashton was right, I should have just told him that I didn't feel that way about him, it wasn't right of me to leave him in the dark like that.

"After the tour?" I asked.

"No, tomorrow, I'm talking to the manager tomorrow and quitting, I can't keep doing this...but if you come with me..."

"Daniel- If you want me to go with you right now..."

"Just hear me out-"

"No! Daniel I should have just told you this months ago but I didn't and that's my fault but I don't love you Daniel... I can't go back to Montana especially not with you and if you think that I would just abandon this job...Maybe you're the crazy one." I said. Everything that I'd been holding back just spilled out but I didn't feel any better. I hated breaking Daniel's heart but, he had to know there was no chance between me and him.

"Alright." Daniel said, put his hands in his pockets and walked away.
