How Did We End Up Here?

Things have been rough lately for stage crew worker Miranda. She has to work two jobs just to get by. Until she does a show for 5 Seconds of Summer and she and her friend Daniel get asked to tour with them! Miranda starts to fall for one of the boys but it threatens her job, where if something happened she would have to go back to Montana and face everything she left behind.

After that briefing my family (hauntingly like me) also prefers to avoid conflict so things had been going really great. We just kind of made small talk. Me and my sister would take dads old boat on the lake a lot. A long time ago my dad taught me how to drive it and I guess I never forgot. He wanted to teach my sister but at the time she was 'too cool' for it so she never learned. So often times we would go in the morning and I'd drive the boat around all day. 

"You ready to go?" My sister asked.

"Yeah hold on..." I said sliding some flip flops on my feet. I put Ashton's shirt on as a bathing suit cover-up since it covered all of my torso and past my butt. 

"Okay lets go!" I said and grabbed a tote bag which had some towels magazines and granola bars. 

"Bye dad!" My sister yelled and we went out the door down the steps and down the path to the lake. It was almost glass like and it looked like you could walk right across it. I walked onto the dock and pulled the keys to dad's boat out of my pocket and hopped in. I circled the lake for a while until the sun came up a little more. Eventually in open water I put it on break and let us float for a little bit.

"So tell me about tour!" My sister said sitting in one of the seats in the back. I sat on the edge of the boat.

"There's not much to tell." I lied. I wanted to tell her everything! All my wacky stories but instead I just said that.

"I'm sure there is!" She said. " I saw you on TV...."

"You did?" I asked and my heart fell to my stomach, here comes the string on unrelenting judgy comments. 

"Yeah! With that Ashton boy, tell me about him!" She said. That was a change from what I remember. When I told her I lost my virginity she ignored me for three weeks because she said it was 'an irresponsible thing for a young lady to do.' I swear it was like I had two moms back then. 

"Well, he's kinda...the best. He always comes through for me and I miss him like crazy..." I said looking down at the water watching a trout swim by. 

"What does he look like?" She asked

"Well, you saw the pictures on TV."

"Yeah but I couldn't really get a good look at him, do you have and pictures."

"I'm sure I do...hold on." I said grabbing my phone from my pocket, I turned it on and unlocked it, it was open to Instagram. Ashton had just posted a picture of him and everyone else on the beach. I smiled and wished I was in the picture I looked at Ashton's face then I realized, he was wearing my bandana, that's where it went! He has it! Just Like I have his shirt!

"What?" My sister asked getting up and trying to look over my shoulder at my phone. I gave it to her.

"Which one is he?" She asked

"The one in the bandana..." I said smiling.

"Is that yours?" She asked.

"Yeah..." I said biting my nails.

"Miranda! That means he misses you too!" She said pulling on his shirt.


"Miranda, I know that's not your shirt." She said and we laughed. together. For the first time in a long time. We talked and I drove the boat around until it got dark. When we got back our parents were cleaning up dinner and I went upstairs, brushed my teeth and wiped my makeup off. I sat in my bed and grabbed my phone and texted Ashton the picture he posted today and said,

M: Is that my bandana?

Maybe, I was hoping you wouldn't notice.:A

M: Well I did notice Mr! And I want it back asap... ;)

I'll give it back when you give my shirt back!:A

M: I don't have your shirt...

Oh really?A

And then he sent me a picture of me and my sister holding sparklers I'd posted and I was wearing his shirt as a swimsuit cover as I did today.

M: Well that could be anybody's...

Nope! Theres a hole near the bottom...right?:A

I looked at the shirt I was now holding in my hand and saw a small hole right by the bottom.


That's okay, you look better in it than me ;) :A

M: Same goes for you in that bandana

I think you looked pretty hot in it.:A

M: So do you! ;D

I miss you...:A

M: I miss you too, I'll see you soon.

Goodnight beautiful :A

M: Goodnight hottie ;D XD
