Chapter 5

-Stephanie’s pov-

Ashton had just finished showing me around the house and he was leading me down the stairs to his basement. He seemed really excited about this room for some reason and it was kind of scaring me.

“This is the basement.” He said. The room had a couch, a TV, and an Xbox. He also had an acoustic guitar and a drum set in the corner.

“You play drums?” I walked over to the drum set.

“Yeah. I can play a little bit of guitar too, but not as well.” He said.

“That’s awesome.” I said. He sat down on the drum stool and picked up his drum sticks and started playing them. He was really good.

“Come here.” He motioned for me to sit on his lap. I hesitated at first but then I sat on his lap and he put the drum sticks in my hands.

“I’ve never played the drums before.”

“That’s okay babe. You hold them like this,” he positioned the drum sticks correctly in my hands, “make sure you don’t hold them to tight or it make a different sound and you can damage the drums. Make sure you don’t hold them too lose either.” His foot was hitting the pedal for the base and he put his arms around me so he could hold my wrists. We started playing a few simple beats like this for a while. It was fun really.

“Oh gosh I suck.” I chuckled.

“You weren’t that bad baby.”

“Pretend you aren’t my boyfriend. Do I suck at playing the drums?”

“Yes. Now can I go back into reality again? I don’t like pretending you aren’t mine.” He kissed my cheek.

“I guess.” I chuckled. I got up and went over and picked up his guitar and sat down on the couch. “I may suck at drums but I can play guitar pretty well if I must say so myself.” I started playing a few songs I knew off the top of my head.

“You’re better at guitar than I am.” Ashton said as he sat down beside me on the couch.

“I know. Just like you’re better at drums than I am.”

“I guess so.” He chuckled.

“C’mon, you want to watch a movie?” I sat the guitar down and stood up off the couch.

“Sure, but first-“he stood up and pulled me down onto the couch and so I was laying down and he was hovering over me and kissed me. I chuckled into the kiss and kissed him back.

“Ashton-“

“Shh. Don’t speak.” He said between kisses.
