I believe the world is burning to the ground

Oh well I guess we're gonna find out

Let's see how far we've come

Let's see how far we've come

Well I believe it all is coming to an end

Oh well, I guess, we're gonna pretend,

Let's see how far we've come

Let's see how far we've come

How Far We've Come ~ Matchbox 20


Luke's POV

I kissed Ashton. He kissed back. But he pulled away. He was smiling. Not one of his fake smiles, but a real smile. He looked pretty damn cute.

"Do you like me?" Ashton asked me.

"Obviously. What's not to like?" I replied. He blushed, mumbling something that sounded like "everything." I frowned a little at his response.

"Well, I like you, too." He admitted shyly. I think this was my chance.

"Ashton, will you be my boyfriend?"I asked him, hope filling my eyes.

"Of course!" He said, most likely smiling more than he ever has before. I frowned a little, which he noticed. 

"What's wrong?" He asked me.

"We just...just can't tell anyone. Besides Calum and Michael, alright?" I said.

"Yeah. Can I ask why?"

"Well, it's just that I'm not exactly planning to come out as bi. I know what kind of treatment that may get me. I didn't say it earlier, but I knew that they did that to you. Zayn and Liam. I've been wanting to stand up for you, it's just-" I was cut off by Ashton gently attaching our lips.

"It's okay. I'm okay. I get it. You're fine. I won't tell anyone. I would never want you to go through the same thing." He assured me. I know he's not okay, though.

"Alright. Is there anybody you want to know, though?" I asked him. 

"Probably my best friend Harry. He stuck with me when nobody else would." He told me.

"Okay. We should probably get some sleep, babe." I told him, smiling when he blushed again.

"Okay. Goodnight, Lukey." He said, snuggling up into me. He put his head on my chest and I wrapped my arms around him. He put one of his legs around one of mine, which the blanket was hiding.

"Night, Ash."


 Calum's POV

"Just take the goddamn picture already!" Michael screamed at me. We were trying to get a picture of "Lashton." That's the couple name that Michael oh so creatively came up with.

"Shut the fuck up or you're gonna wake them up!" I whisper-yelled back at him.

"Too late." Luke said, revealing that he was already awake.

"Whoops." I said, snapping the picture. The flash made Luke close his eyes, so he looked like he was still asleep.

"Yeah, whoops. Still shut the fuck up, though. Ashton is still sleeping." Luke told us.

"Did someone lose their virginity last night?" Michael teased, wiggling his eyebrows.

"Alright, I'm up!" Ashton suddenly yelled, bursting out into laughter.
