Close As Strangers|| Ashton Irwin

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



9. him

She was sitting there, and I could tell that she was pissed. I hesitantly sat down across from her, and sighed.

"Can we talk about what happened? I need to explain everything..." I asked.

"You mean you not telling me that you were leaving for 6 weeks... Not telling me goodbye. Leaving me standing in the airport looking like a dumbass... And then you go to another girls house to fuck." She spat.

"H-how do you know about that?" I whispered.

She rolled her eyes and scoffed. "It's called paparazzi. A little thing that happens when you're famous."

I sighed, looking down at my lap.

What am I supposed to do? She knows about Rachel, which isn't the best thing she could've known about. I need to get her alone.

"Kay? Can we go for a walk?" I slowly asked.

She nodded. We both stood up from the table, and walked outside.

I shoved my hands in the pockets of my jeans, the slightly cold air nipping at my skin.

"So, I want to explain." I started. "So, the reason I didn't tell you that I was leaving is because I've done this before. I was in a healthy relationship, and she had to leave. I told her goodbye, and I never saw her again. I don't like saying goodbye anymore, because I know what will happen when I do. And the Rachel thing was only to get you off my mind. Honestly, I feel bad for playing with her emotions like that. Every time I looked at her, I saw you. In every crowd, I lost your face in a thousand faces."

"It feels like we're as close as strangers..." She whispered. "And I don't want it to be like that. The night of the wedding, when everything happened, was amazing. It went like it should've. But now, I feel like I don't even know you anymore."

I stopped, and grabbed her body, pulling her toward me. I cupped her face in my hands, and gently put my lips on hers. "Don't say you don't know me... Cause it's not true.. I'll tell you everything you want to know. Anything."

"Ashton... I don't know. I'm scared that you're going to do something like that again.. I'm sorry..." And with that, she walked away.


I stayed with Luke and Rylie for the next couple of days. Michael and Calum were staying with Jade and Kayla, but I felt like I was unwelcome there.

I still regret everything that happened between Kayla and I.. And Rachel has been texting me non-stop. She won't leave me alone. I think she's just worried about me because I usually text her back. I've been ignoring her for the past week.

There was a knock at the door. "Come in..." I sighed.

The door opened, and Luke walked in. "Hey... Um, everyone is coming over for dinner tonight... Kayla says that she has something to tell you.." He told me.  "They will be here at 6. So you have about an hour and a half before they will come."

"Okay, thanks."

With that, like turned around and walked out of the room, closing the door behind him.

I went in the guest bathroom, and took a quick shower. After I put on my outfit, it was almost time for everyone to be getting here. I grabbed my phone, and sighed one more time before walking downstairs.


Everyone had finished eating , and Kayla asked me if I wanted to go outside and talk for a while.

"So, I've been thinking a lot about what happened when you guys came back..." She said. "And I'm sorry."

"For what? There's nothing to be sorry about. You were completely honest, and that makes me happy." I slightly smiled.

"Well.. I want to be completely honest with you now.." She sighed, and grabbed my hand. "I'm in love with you, Ashton. I have been since the wedding. I don't know why I didn't tell you this the other night, but it's true. I guess I was too caught up with everything that was happening, and I just told you what I thought was right. I hope we can look past this..."

I pulled her close, and smashed our lips together. "I think we can work something out..." I smirked. "So, Kayla... Wanna be mine?"

She giggled, then nodded. "Of course I do..."

I smiled, and kissed her again. "I'm in love with you too."

They're finally together ! 😋
