Close As Strangers|| Ashton Irwin

Every night I'm losing you in a thousand faces
Now it feels we're as close as strangers

We were lining up to walk down the aisle. Michael and Amity first. Then, Calum and Jade. Ashton and I. And finally, Rylie. Luke was standing at the alter, waiting for his bride. Soft music started playing in the sanctuary, and they opened the doors so Michael and Amity could walk out. They got down to the end of the aisle, and the next couple started walking. I hooked my arm around Ashton's, and we stood at the edge of the hall, anticipating our turn. And we started walking.

Now, I don't know very much about this Ashton guy, but he seems very .... Genuine? Rylie talks highly of him, and so does Jade. I'd like to talk with him after the ceremony.

They closed the doors once Ashton and I got in our places. Here Comes the Bride started to play, and everyone stood up, waiting for the bride to come out. Once the doors open, I glanced over at Luke, who was grinning ear to ear. I looked back to Rylie, who was trying to keep her tears from falling. She smiled as she walked with her dad down the aisle.

"You may be seated." The preacher said after Ry got on the stage next to Luke.

When it got to the vows, I couldn't hold in the tears anymore. One of my best friends since high school was getting married. I mean, they are both 19 almost 20... But still. We shouldn't be old enough to get married.

"Luke, you may say your vows."

"Well.. Where do I begin? I didn't write mine down, because words cannot describe what you mean to me. You've been there for me when I was sick, when I had a bad day, everything. You make sure I'm okay no matter how you are feeling. And I will cherish that for as long as I live. I love you." Luke smiled, sliding the ring on Rylie's finger.

"Now, Rylie, you may say yours."

"Luke...we've been together for 2 years. Through thick and thin. Better for worse. In sickness and in health. I'm proud to say that I will be with you until death do us part. When I first saw you, it was like we were the only two people on this earth. Caught up in a blur. I love you, Luke." Rylie said, tears catching her throat. She slid the ring on Luke's finger.

"By the power vested in me, I pronounce you husband and wife. Luke, you may now kiss your bride!"

Luke's hands cupped Rylie's face, and he gently kissed her.

"Let's all rise for the beautiful marriage of Mr. and Mrs. Luke Hemmings!"

The crowd clapped as they walked down the aisle to the back hallway. We all followed them, and headed to the reception. I sat next to Ashton, and we started some small talk.

He poured us both a glass of champagne. "So, Kayla, correct?" I nodded. "Rylie talks about you and Jade all the time. I'd like to know more about you.. If you don't mind."

"Well, I was born and raised in Tennessee, just like Jade and Rylie. I've known Jade since middle school, and we both met Ry in high school..." I explained, occasionally sipping on the champagne. "I'm not sure what else their is to say." I giggled.

Ashton slightly chuckled. "Well, what is there to know? What do you want to do with your life?"

"Well, I was going to be a psychologist... But that dream kinda went away, I guess. Now, we girls are pursuing a music career... Kinda."

"What are you doing in music?"

"Um... We remix a lot of songs.. Write some here and there... We all play different instruments. Jade plays guitar, I play bass and drums, and Ry plays the piano."

Ashton smiled. "Well, you know I'm in a band? We're kinda famous?"

"Yes, for singing songs about underwear." I giggled, pouring another glass of champagne.

"Hey, you wanna get out of here?" Ashton asked, placing his hand on my thigh.


I woke up the next morning, my head pounding.  I look over next to me, and see Ashton. His mouth was open and snores were falling out of his mouth.

What did we just do?!

Okay! I'm so excited to write this story!
