Chapter 8 Arrival in Sydney.

42 2 0

I awoke to loud sounds of shifting around, and the movement of flight attendants walking up and down the aisles.

For the first time since Brett and I had split up, I felt myself. I felt a lot warmer inside and I was beginning to see things clearly again. 

I was daydreaming when I heard someone come up behind me. 

"Good morning." Ashton said in a scruffy voice that made me realize he had just woken up.

"Good morning." I said and smiled sweetly at him.

"I was just at the bathroom. That food we had last night did not agree with me." He said wiping his nose.

"Okay....and I needed to be informed about this because...?" I asked not really knowing why he filled me in on his stomach problems.

He laughed.

"I don't know I just thought I'd make you feel uncomfortable." He said giving me his famous cheeky grin.

I rolled my eyes and stuck a headphone in my ear. It was 9:30 in the morning but my music made time fly awfully quick and before I knew it, we were landing at the Sydney Airport.

Slowly, the plane began to swoop down towards the runway. and BAM finally we were here.

Everyone was cued to unfasten their seat belts and exit the plane in an orderly fashion.

I was beginning to make my way out of the plane when I was stopped by Ashton.

"What no goodbye??" He said looking at me waiting for an answer.

I smiled and rolled my eyes. "Goodbye Ashy poo." I said in a sarcastic tone as I punched his shoulder.

"Bring it in." He said in response. But before I had time to even think, He wrapped me up in his arms and squeezed me tightly.

He gave really warm hugs, which I loved dearly.

"Ya know something?" I asked out of the blue while we were still in the middle of our hug. 

"What?" He asked releasing his grasp, and turning to look at me.

"You sure show a lot of affection to someone who just met you yesterday." I realize that was kind of an awkward thing to say, but a part of me had been wondering why he was so open towards me the entire flight.

"You know, I was actually trying to find that out myself. There's just something about you that makes me-" he trailed off and I could see he was gazing at the clock. 

"Oh Shit I really have to go! Sorry Faith!" He shouted starting to run away in the distance.

"Hey wait!! I still want to know?!!!" I shouted starting to run after him.

"I'm sorry faith I really am. There's no time!" "Ju- Just Call me!" He stuttered. and then he disappeared around the corner.

I sighed.

I guess I'll never know. I thought to myself.

Nahh. I was too curious. If I ever see him again, I have to bring it up. 

I stepped out of the plane and began walking towards conveyor belt that had all of the luggage. I picked up all of my stuff and walked towards the train.

Okay I should probably call uncle Robert to come and pick me up right about now

I reached for my phone and found a partially crumpled next to it. who would've written me a note?

Hey Faith, It's Ashton. :) xx

I blushed as I read his name and I smiled from ear to ear. 

I wrote you this note when you were sleeping aha ;) and I just wanted to say I really enjoyed talking to you today and well, there's not really a purpose to this note but I just couldn't seem to get tired and the  guy in front of me won't stop snoring :(. You look so peaceful sleeping next to me:) Please don't forget about calling me so we can have fun again. Love Ash xx p.s. I spammed your camera with selfies.

I pulled out my camera not only to find a million pictures of him sticking his tongue out, crossing his eyes and then one of me laying beside me nuzzled in my hair with his eyes closed.

My heart felt really warm.

He was such a dork but I liked him so much. Ashton was so nice and genuine. He was a breath fresh air compared to everything I had dealing with lately. 

I got so caught up in my thoughts of Ashton that I had completely forgot about calling Uncle Robert.

"Ahh shit." I mumbled dialing his number in a quick manner. there were three rings and then an answer.

"Can you come pick me up from the airport? I just landed." 

He agreed and told me he was on his way. I had at least another 30 minutes before he would arrive, And that's if there's no traffic.

Knowing that, I decided to go Lucio's Pizzeria Place and grab a bite to eat.

The waitress I had looked very young and full of energy. She caught me staring at her Nirvana wristband when she walked up and asked me what I would like to drink.

"What would you like to drink this morning ma'am?" She asked whipping out her notepad and pen.

"I'll just have a water." It was too early to drink anything sugary or caffeinated.

She jotted it down, although I'm not really sure why seeing as how I was the only one at my table and it was just water.

"So, you like Nirvana?" She asked catching me off guard.

"hm- whA- Oh yeah they're my favorite!" I responded.

"That's cool. I saw you looking at my wristband that's why I asked." she said chuckling.

"Oh," I said. "Yea that's just because my friend has one exactly like it." I said reffering to Ashton. Just the thought of him made me extremely happy. What was happening...

She nodded her head and started to walk back towards the kitchen.

There was a very obnoxious girl that looked to be about 14, sitting at the table beside me with what looked to be her dad. She was blasting rock music and pumping her fists up and down with her phone in her hand and it was reallyyyy starting to annoy me. I was about to ask her to stop when her phone flew out of her hands and landed on the ground in front of me. Instinctual, I picked it up and pressed the lock screen to see what song was playing. The screen read:

Out of my limit 5 seconds of Summer

The title and band name stuck in my head. There was something about it that seemed oddly familiar...

"Hey what are you doing? give me my phone back!" I heard a girl with a thick Australian shout from behind me.

"Sorry I Ju-, Who are these people?" I asked curiously pointing at her phone screen.

She scoffed.

"Why would you need to know?" She said dryly.

"Because.... I mumbled searching for words. "Because.. I think I might be interested in their music."I said giving a final answer.

"Ugh okay. Well if you most know, they're a local band here in Sydney. Everyone loves them and they're starting to tour all around Australia! There are four members named Luke Hemmings, Michael Clifford, Calum Hood, and Ashton Irwin. and they're absolutely adorable. They're my favorite band!

All of  a sudden I felt as if a bolt of electricity just flashed through my chest.

"Um, Excuse me," I said still in shock. "Did you say Ashton Irwin?" I asked looking at her in disbelief. 

"Oooo yes! he's the one I'm going to marry. God He's so handsome!" She excalimed squeeling.

"Right.." I said walking back to my table and sitting down in shock.

What just happened. When Ashton said he was in a "band" I thought he meant like "Oh yea we practice once a week in my garage" kind of band. I didnt think people Actually knew about them...
