Army Tanks - Lashton

''This is no girl scout camp, Private.''

''Sir, No, sir.''


Luke is the scrawny new guy in the army, where no one think he belongs.

Ashton is the sir in Luke's tent, and not going easy on any of the boys.

26. ''I wouldn't do that to you.'' ''Well you already did.''

At around twelve there was a knock on the door, making Elliot lose interest in the Tv.

I stood up from the couch, lifting Elliot and sitting him on my hip, before I walked to the front door, opening it, and revealing Michael and Calum.

"Hey!" I said, letting them inside.

I then noticed how they both were carrying multiple bags.

"I told you guys not to spend too much money on him. He's spoiled enough already." I said, and kissed the top of Elliot's head.

"He's spoiled by you. But you're his dad. Calum and I are like the cool uncles, that helps him do stuff you won't allow him to." Michael said, as he sat the bags down.

"Ikey!" Elliot squealed, and Michael's face lit up.

I handed the little bundle of Joy over to the pregnant boy, as I sat on the couch next to Calum.

"So... How is it going with you...?" Calum asked, as he looked at Michael.

"I'm good. I have my son, and he is all I need. Believe me. You will know in about half a year." I said, seeing the slight smile on Calum's face.

"Calum...? Have... Have you talked to Ashton lately..?" I asked, biting my lip unsurely.

I heard him gulp.

"No... Ever since he signed out of the army, I haven't heard from him." Calum said, giving me a sad smile.

I looked down at my hands.

"I just... I don't get it... When I was around three months pregnant, I met him at a store. He... He had a girlfriend back then. She called me fat, and when I left the store, Ashton came to apologize. We... We ended up kissing and he told me about Michael who was drunk, calling him and accidentally saying that I was carrying Ashton's child. I didn't see him for months after that. The first time I saw him, was when my water broke. He was there for me when James died. I... I told Ashton I loved him, the night after James' funeral. That's the last time I saw him. He left in the middle of the night." I rambled, as I watched Michael play with Elliot.

Suddenly there was a knock on the door again, and it confused me slightly.

I only invited Calum and Michael.

My parents couldn't make it, but I will see them at Christmas Eve.

I stood up from the couch, and walked to the front door, opening it.

When our eyes met, I instantly closed the door again.

The door slammed loudly, and Calum soon after walked out to me.

"What's wrong? Who was it?" he asked, trying to open the door, only to have me lock it.

"Its Ashton." I said, feeling worry wash over me.

Calum looked surprised for a few minutes, before he pulled me away from the door, unlocked it, and then opened it, just to see Ashton walk down the front steps.

''Ashton.'' He called, making the strong man turn around, and look straight at me.

''Come on. Come inside. It's your son's birthday after all.'' Calum said, and I saw the unsure look on Ashton's face.

''Only if I can talk to Luke alone first... And if he will let me in afterwards.'' Ashton said, making Calum turn to look at me.

''Go play with Michael and Elliot.'' I said, to Calum, before walking out onto the porch, and closing the door behind me.

I sat on the bench, patting beside me, to signal Ashton to sit beside me.

Ashton walked up, and sat beside me, and since the bench wasn't the biggest, our shoulders and thighs were pressed together.

He didn't say anything fir a while, as we just sat there, in an awkward and tense silence.

''If you had just waited a week, you would've come back exactly a year after you left, and I would be able to tell people you didn't speak to me for a year, so they could see you at least a little more as an asshole, like I do.'' I said, my words harsh. But they needed to be said.

''Luke...'' Ashton whispered, turning his face to look at me.

''No. Ashton. You left me. You left me alone with a kid. You broke my heart, that was already broken. But it wasn't enough for you! You just had to break it even more!'' I said, turning my face away, so he wouldn't see my tears.

''Luke. I love you. Please believe me.'' Ashton said, turning my face to look at him. But as he tried to break down my walls, I only build them stronger.

''And now what? Are you going to disappear for half a year again, wait for me to tell you the same thing, and the disappear for another year? Is this some kind of sick game to you Ashton?'' I asked, looking into his sad eyes.

''No... Luke... I wouldn't do that to you.'' He said, taking my hand in his.

''Well you already did...'' I whispered, and looked down, pulling my hand away from his.

''And I didn't mean to baby.'' He said, before he brought his lips to mine.

And for once, I felt like everything could actually become okay again
