When I get to my locker Ashton walks up to me and... Hugs me... What drug is he taking? Can I have some? What?! No! Stop!
"Hey Carter, how are you?" He smiles
"Why are you being nice to me?" I ask truly confused
But then it came to me, the stuff I told him yesterday, he feels bad.
"Ashton, you know you don't have to have pity on me... A lot of people have it way worse than I do... It's not even that bad"
"What are you talking about? We're friends, I'm here for you" he smiles again
"Ashton seriously stop," I say sternly
"Oh thank god! It was killing me! I actually had to call you my friend, and hug you" he sighs in relief, "But I really am sorry for what happened" he says with all seriousness
"Still don't need your pity from something that happened about a decade ago" I shrug, making my way to class
- After school -
Heather is telling me everything about her date with Brian, she keeps going on and on, I kind of zone out.
"Hello? Earth to Carter!" She waves her hand in front of my face
"Oh, um, sorry, what else about the popcorn thing?" I ask
"I talked about that five minutes ago"
"Sorry, I'm just kind of tired"
"I think I'm going to go home" I add
"Okay, I'll talk to you later" she smiles
When I enter my room I see Ashton sitting on my bed.
"You know you should really lock your window"
"Why are you here?" I ask
"I'm bored again" he shrugs
"Well leave, I'm not your entertainment toy" I cross my arms
"Well you could be" he winks
"Ew! Get out!" I open my bedroom door
"No, I can't until after an hour."
"Who says?" I ask
"The teacher, you're my tutor" he smiles
"What? No, I'm not! The teacher didn't tell me" I argue
"Look I have this paper signed" he holds up a paper
"You could've forged her handwriting," I say unconvinced
"Why the fuck would I want to forge someone's handwriting to hang out with you?" He asks
"Okay fine then leave"
"I really need this A though"
"Ugh, what do you need help on?" I sigh giving in
For an hour, I tutor him on World History.
"Wow, who knew you were such a geek?" He asks
"Shut up! I am not!" I push him off his chair
"Well aren't you a little ray of sunshine" I hear him mumble
"Well aren't you a little ray of sunshine" I mimic
"Well I should get going, I'll see you for another tutor session tomorrow" he winks
Does he have something in his eye?!? Why does he keep winking!?
