There was a twinkle in his eye and a certain glow in his smile that I really enjoyed.

"Hi I'm Faith." I said with a shaky voice. I shook his hand really awkwardly.

"I really like your name." he said chuckling.

I could feel myself blushing. I was ALWAYS blushing. It wouldn't matter who it is.

We took our seats. I got the window and Ashton got the aisle. We sat for a few moments waiting for the flight attendants to give us further instruction. This was going to be a longgggggggggggg ass flight.

The plane finally took off after about 10 minutes of silence between my neighbor and I. The first half of the flight was mostly silence until Ashton noticed me glaring at my silver bracelet he had picked up earlier.

"What's wrong?" he asked curiously.

"What? oh nothing." I said really fast once I looked up to see he was looking at my bracelet.

"No really, why do you look so glum?"

I cut him off.

"Are you from here?" I asked. Something about his voice didn't sound American.

"No I'm actually from Australia. I'm just in America because I have some friends who I was writing songs with for my band."

"Band." I said under my breath mockingly.

"What was that?" he said with a higher voice leaning over towards me.

"Oh nothing." I said slipping my head phones on and turning the other way to look out the window.

A few minutes later I felt a tap on my shoulder. It was Ashton motioning me to take my headphones off.

"What?." I said flatly. Couldn't this boy see that I was trying to listen to music and didn't want to be bothered? why was he being so friendly anyway.

"I was just wondering if you wanted the rest of this juice because I don't want anymore. And you can have it-if you want." He blinked at me a couple of times before I reached foreword and grabbed it without saying a word. I put my headphones on and resumed with my music.

For the next 2 hours of the plane ride I fell into a deep sleep.

And then I began to dream.

I Dreamt that I was back in Brett's arms and I was safe and sound. Until Cynthia came up behind us and pushed me out of the way. she grabbed Brett's arm and they ran off and jumped into a car. They left me stranded and I couldn't find my way back home. Then it began to rain and my clothes got soiled and then A REALLY SCARY MAN STARTED TO APPROACH ME AND-

"Ahhhh!" I yelled as I woke up. Suddenly everyone eyes in the plane drifted towards me.

"Shhhhhhh you're drawing attention to your self." I heard Ashton say as he rubbed me on the back. RUBBED ME ON THE BACK WHAT THE.

I quickly popped up and looked around. I was nuzzled into Ashton's arms practically on his lap.

"WHY AM I-" I started to scream again but he hushed me.

"Deep breaths." he said "breathe out and then in." I did and then I began to talk in a normal tone.

"Why am I in your lap and why are your arms around me?!?" I asked very confused. he started laughing really hard.
"Ahahah I don't know when you fell asleep your head sort of just fell on my shoulder and then you wrapped your arms around me and I didn't want to disturb you so I just went with it."

"Aghhhh." I buried my face into my hands.

"I'm sorry." I said really embarrassed.

"Sorry for what?" he said chuckling.
