Ashton's P.O.V

I was in my room listening to Flavor of the week by American Hi-Fi, going all hardcore to the beet of the drums and singing when I herd the door bell ring. Ehh, it's probably for Lauren.

A few seconds later Harry started yelling up the stairs to me "Ashton! That pretty girl you wont shut about is here!"

Oh my god, I didn't think she would walk all the way here and not to mention I didn't think she remembered where I live. I thought she was going to ask for a ride and than maybe I would be able to prepare myself to see her...alone. I walked downstairs, although I wanted to run, but I didn't want to seem too eager.

She giggled once she saw me. God I love that giggle, it's too damn cute "He's so cute, how old is he?" She asked.

"Ten and my sister is fourteen" I said, and I know I sounded totally friggin awkward. I can't believe she doesn't think I'm totally fuckin weird by now. I just can't help it, she makes me so nervous, most of the time I know what I'm going to say, I just choke up, and it sucks. There's just something about her that's so different and it just keeps drawing me in.

"What, are you shocked or something?" She said with that cute look she tends to give a lot.

"Ya, kind of, I didn't think you remembered where I live" I'm still just in total shock that she would even make the effort to walk here just to hang out with me.

"Well I do, so what do you want to do?" She asked and I could totally tell her feet were killing her. She kept lifting them and stretching them out. I would carry her, but she'd probably think I'm even weirder.

"Well I did say I was going to teach you how to play the drums" I said, motioning to the garage. 

"Ok" She said with the biggest smile I've ever seen. And I just noticed she has one dimple on the right side of her face. It's actually kind of adorable. Now I know why people say they like my dimples.

"Ashton! Who's that?" Mom yelled to me, even though she walked into the room and answered her question anyway. "Oh, hi Phoebe" She smiled. To be honest, I think she's talked about her more than I have. She keeps asking about her and when I was going to see her again, which I guess is now.

"Oh ya, umm, my parents were wondering what your name was. You never told me last time" Phoebe said. My mom said that she used to know her parents, so that's why they probably want to know.

"It's Anne Marie" She said with a smile.

"Ok, I'll tell them" She said and pulled me into the garage. I'm not lying when I say her touch gave me such a shock wave that I almost froze in place "Alright teach, what's my first lesson?" 

"Ok" I picked up the sticks "You obviously need these" God dammit Ashton, you sound like a fucking stupid ass, nice one. I sat her down on the stool. I tried to act cool holding her waist for that split second, but inside I definitely wasn't. Good thing she can't see my face. "So first of all" I started naming off the parts of the drum and what they sound like, so she can sort of get a feel for them. She looked really interested and I'm so glad for that, it'll be easier to teach her. "Now, do you think you can step on the pedal and play the other drums at the same time?"

"No" She chuckled "I'm gonna sound like a fucktard" She said, totally thinking I'm going to laugh at her, but I won't, I could never laugh at her.

"It's ok, everyone starts out knowing nothing. I mean come on, I sucked ass when I started" I said, trying to make her feel a little better, but I can tell it wasn't working.

"Still doesn't make me feel better, haha" She said.

"Ok, well, umm, why don't you try and roll the sticks" Now that I think about it, she probably has no idea what the fuck I'm talking about.

She gave me the most confused look "Umm, what?" Like I thought.

I chuckled a little "Here, like this" I took them and rolled them and she got that look of clarity. Most people don't know what it's called until they see it, so I guess she's no different.

"Oh, ok" She took them from me and did exactly what I did...on the first try, impressive.

"Nice, ok, now do this" I played the bass drum and snare at the same time. She sounded like she had no idea what she was doing, but than a few seconds later she almost sounded like a pro. "Good, ok, now do this" I started doing a beet with the bass, snare, and ride symbol. She started off really slow -but doing it right- and needing my help -which I'm not complaining, I loved it-  but than getting faster and faster, and actually sounded really good. She noticed she sounded good which made her smile that fucking cute ass smile "Your doing really good" I smiled back.

I swear we were only doing this for at least forty-five minuets, but it ended up being like, two hours, and mom called us in for dinner.

"Ok, I think your ready" I said and she looked wicked confused. I can't get over that look, she looks so adorable.

"For what?" She asked.

"To do free style, now that your familiar with the way everything sounds" I have a gut feeling she's going to sound good.  

"Umm, I don't know" She replied nervously.

"Come on, you'll be fine, you have a natural talent for it. You picked everything up wicked quick. You may not be pro, but you're really good for this being your first time ever" I said. She really does have a talent for this. Most people have to do this forever to get as good as she is...and it's only her first time. 

"Fine" She said, giving in "But you have to turn around" She twirled her finger in a circled motioning for me to do the same, so I did.

She started off with some light taps on the symbol and went soft into the snare and toms. Which I think is a really good intro. After a minuet or two of the soft stuff she started going hardcore.

I turned around even though she didn't want me too and saw she wasn't paying attention to me and was in the zone, so I just sat there in awe. I think I love this girl already. The way she can get into music is baffling to me. I didn't think most girls could get into drums like this, I know there are some, but not a lot. They're a dying race. She is probably the most mesmerizing person to watch. She just looks so perfect up there.

A couple minuets later and she stopped and looked embarrassed, knowing that I watched almost the whole thing. I started clapping  and she looked even more embarrassed "Nice, Are you sure you haven't done this before?" I said.

"Ya, but I didn't think I was that good" She said, putting the sticks down.

"Well you are, you barley even needed me. The only thing I have to say is that when you roll the sticks, you should keep your elbows out more. I think it's stopping you from going into the next thing you do, like you pause like a millisecond before you do the next thing, and you shouldn't be stopping. You get what I'm saying?" I said, not trying to sound like an ass "But other than that you were really good" I said, trying to make up for the criticism.

"Ok, thanks for the tip" She said, I guess I didn't sound like a jerk. Good, I can't afford to piss her off. She's the only girl I've had a connection with in a while.

We walked into the kitchen and Phoebe look extremely awkward "Umm, should I go home or..." No.

"No, I made enough for you too" Mom said. Damn she's a lifesaver.

"Ok, thanks" She said, and than started to fallow me like a shadow, and hey, I'm not complaining, I love this. I've wanted this for so long. I kind of don't know how to react.

"Oh ya, kids, were going to use the dining room table today ok" Mom said. "I got a new one" She told Phoebe for clarification. To be honest, I don't even know why we have a dinning room table, we never use it, but I guess she can look fancy if she wants.

"Ok" we said in unison and went over to the table and sat down, me next to Harry and Lauren with Phoebe and mom across from me. I would have sat next to Phoebe, but it was the only seat available, that would be remotely close to her.

It was quiet at first but than Harry spoke "Sooo, is she your girlfriend Ash? Cause I'd like to have a pretty sister" He said, sticking his tongue out at Lauren. I can't believe this kid just said that.

"Hey" She said, looking annoyed.

"Kids" Mom said sternly.

"Sorry" They both said in unison.

"But seriously, she's really pretty" Harry said and than got extremely red.

I know I sure as hell looked a little embarrassed and so did she. Now that's probably going to push her away. Even though it's true.

"I know shes pretty" I said, looking right at her, which in turn made her look even more embarrassed, probably because my mom is right there, but oh well "But were just friends" Although I wish we were more than that . Which is weird because I don't really know her, but hey, people talk about love at first sight, and I think that's what this is. This girl is just so perfect.

"Well she is pretty" Lauren said, looking at her "And you seem pretty cool, so..." Now that had to have embarrassed her. 

"Kids, they've only known each other for a dew days, now stop bombarding them about it" Mom said calmly. You're one to talk.

"Ok" They said and it got quiet again.

"I do ship you guys though" Lauren said "You'd look wicked cute together" She stopped after that. We both got as red as a lobster at that. "See, you both even have the same embarrassed face" She giggled and than mom gave her that look only moms can give right, telling you to stop.

I never noticed, but we kinda do, which is weird. Now that I think about it, we do have a lot in common. Like how we've both had pretty much the same experiences when it comes to the opposite sex, how we present ourselves -to how we dress and the way we carry ourselves-, and a bunch of other stuff. I don't think I've had this much in common with like any girl ever, not even my ex girlfriend, but she was just a winy little slut.

Once we got done eating we went and sat down on the couch "So what do you want to do now?" She asked. I can't even believe she still wants to hang out with me after all that.

"Umm-" I was cut off by Harry.

"How bout we watch Spongebob" He said, sucking up to her. He knew I was trying to make it only me and her, but he had to butt in.

"Ok, I love Spongebob" She said, so I turned on the DVD player.

"He owns like every season ever" I said and put one in.

"Haha, you like krabby pattys don't you Ashton?" She said, trying to sound like Spongebob did and actually looked wicked adorable, which made me laugh and I played the show.

About like a season and a half through Harry started talking about us again "She's like awesome Ashton. She loves Spongebob, how can you go wrong with her? She knows all the lines and everything, she's perfect" She blushed like a lot when he said that last part.

"Dude, I know she is, but you can't date someone when you've only known them for like three days" I said to him, not even thinking. Oh well, no going back now. 

"Ya, but Phoebe is different, I can tell" He pleaded.

"Hey Harry" Phoebe said and he looked at her "You never know what's going to happen in the future do you" She said in that motherly tone. Damn, she's even good with kids.

"No, but I can see the future and in it you guys are living together all happy" Ya, only in my dreams bud.

"Oh are we now?" She said, like that's what she wants and Harry and I both smiled.

"Yes" He replied.

The rest of the night went by and to be honest I really don't want her to leave, but I know she has to.

"Harry! Come and get to bed!" Mom yelled downstairs.

"Umm, do you want a ride home?" I asked, knowing she was probably going to say yes.

"Haha, yes, that was the worst walk of my life" She said.

I went over to the stairs and yelled to mom that I was going to give her a ride home and we went out to my car.

"Nice car" She said sarcastically. I know it's not the best car -it's a duct tapped Civic- but at least it runs.

"Hey, you don't even have a car" I said and we laughed.

"I know, but it's so hard for me to save money. I like to shop. It's kind of a problem" She said. Oh, she's one of those people. Oh well, I'm willing to be a sugar daddy...so to speak.

"Nice" I chuckled. 

"I think I'm going to end up being one of those middle age woman who has to file bankruptcy after her third sugar daddy" She said.

I laughed "But I'll be your first and only sugar daddy" I gave her the corniest wink ever.

"Haha, ok" 

A few minuets later I got to her driveway and watched her walk back to her house. I know this sounds super shallow, but she has the nicest ass I think I've ever seen. I would tap that any day of the week, but I'm not an asshole, so I won't...unless she wants to.

I got back to my house and my family bombarded me some more, but I ignored it, knowing it's probably not going to happen.
