How Did We End Up Here?

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.

He pulled me close to his chest and I listened to his heart beat. 

"Kind of..." I replied.

"Seems like you do." 

"Only when I'm drunk." He answered laughing. I laughed along with him. We danced around the floor as he held me close to him. I felt warm and safe in Ashton's arms, I thought about being in Colorado being snuggled up in his shirt wishing I was in this exact spot. I never wanted to leave, the song was so short, when it ended he slowly let go of me. Another song started, but I just stared at him. He looked down at me and brushed a stray hair out of my face. 

"I missed you..." Ashton said.

"I missed you too..." I replied as he leaned in about to kiss me, Michael, obviously housed, threw his arms around both of us and stuck his face in between us. 

"You two, are soooooo cute together!" He drunkenly slurred. I laughed and stepped back a little bit awkwardly. Michael laughed for two minutes as me and Ashton stared at him and then he left. 

"What the hell was that?" I asked in between giggles as I pointed at Michael who was now trying to put a strawberry from a champagne glass he'd finished down Calum's shirt. Me and Ashton laughed even more. Luke came up to us.

"Did you guys see Michael?" He asked.

"Yes." Ashton said smiling.

"He must be drunk off his ass!" I said smiling. Luke nodded. Nebraska waved us over as they started cutting the cake. After a worker started handing out pieces Nebraska came up to us, trying to keep Michael from toppling over. Calum and Quorra were with us now.

"Thank you guys so much Miranda you did great as maid of honor Calum, Great job as best man." She said sarcastically gesturing towards Michael and his clearly intoxicated state. 

"Just kidding, you did a great job."

"I know." Calum said patting himself of his chest. 

"You guys getting married soon?" Nebraska asked Calum and Quorra. Oh yeah? Quorra caught the bouquet during the slow song, I didn't even notice until I saw her and Calum making out with the flowers in her hands. Calum tensed up. Earlier this year he told me he was terrified of commitment and that he loved Quorra he just didn't want to settle down and get married, maybe ever. But Quorra didn't think so, and she had no idea about Calum's commitment issues. Quorra looked at him with longing eyes. They'd been dating as long as Nebraska and Michael had and I think this wedding had got Quorra thinking about it even though she knew they were really young, she loved big crazy romantic gestures, and Calum does too, thats why they go so great together, Calum just doesn't like talking or even thinking about marriage.

"Oh, I don't know..." Calum said shyly and Quorra's eyes shot back in sadness and I saw a wave of hurt go through her, very quickly, then she was back to normal, just like that. Nebraska jumped out to change the subject, she knew about Calum's commitment issue's too. 

"Me and Michael are headed out to the honeymoon in Cabo now, we just wanted to say thank you again before we leave, we love you guys." 

"We love you too." I said smiling and pulling her in for a hug, I felt Michael drunkenly sling his arms around me too and I giggled a little bit. Everyone else hugged and Michael and Nebraska made their grand exit. Luke grinned, and his eyes got wild, I knew this look of his.

"We should go swimming." He said. Quorra gasped and nodded then said,

"Has she been through initiation yet?" She got the same wild look.

"What's initiation?" I asked, somewhat nervous and somewhat excited.

"Well, in our little gang, back in the day to be 'in the gang' you have to go swimming at night, in your underwear." Calum said point blankly.

"Like just me?"

"No, we all do it but it's like 'our thing' when something big happens, and we just missed Nebraska and MIchael." Calum responded.

"Seriously?" I asked looking over my shoulder at the clear path to the beach. Luke, Calum and Quorra nodded. I looked up at Ashton.

"Seriously?" I asked again. Ashton looked down at me and nodded.

"Let's do it." Quorra said.

"Alright, I'm in." I said.

"Sweet, lets go!" Luke said clapping once and walking over to the doors out to the beach, we all followed in a row. They all started running down the sandhill and whipping off their shirts and dresses the boys fumbled out of their pants. Ashton looked up at me waiting shyly and he moved his head telling me to come closer, I ran down the sand hill and whipped off my dress. I was glad I decided to wear cute underwear that night. Just then we heard honking from a car on the upper road we looked up and saw Michael and Nebraska waving like little kids from a black limo with just married written on the back windshield. Me Quorra and Claire wrote it days earlier as a surprise. We all waved and screamed back at them and I ran down until my feet hit the cold salty water.
