Auburn.

She didn't even know I was leaving, since I followed her commands and didn't speak to her after everything that had happened at her house last Friday. A part of me wondered if she'd look for me at school and start to miss me, but then decided that I had caused too much for her to ever care about me again.

"Whatcha thinking about?" Calum nudged me, both his voice and his sudden touch making me jump.

"Nothing," I lied. "Just spacing out."

"Ah, I understand –"

"Daisy are you sure you have everything? The plane is taking off in a few minutes," Ashton interrupted, leaning forward in his seat across the aisle to look over at us.

"I'm sure," I confirmed with a nod.

"Okay," Ashton turned back to Michael, continuing their conversation he had paused. "Anyway, Michael..."

"Are you nervous?" Luke now asked.

"Nervous?"

"It's your first time flying. And you'll be in a new country," Luke answered, as if it were obvious.

"Right... Um, yeah," I muttered, already tuning everyone out again as I realized just how drastic this really was.

I was leaving my home country to live in Australia. We didn't even know if we'd ever come back to live here. What if I didn't fit in? Will anyone like me? What would happen with Max and I?

Too many 'what ifs' swirled around in my head, making me dizzy and creating a painful throb in my skull.

Would things ever be the same from now on?

Deep down I knew they wouldn't.

"Isn't it nice?"

Was the only thing Ashton said as we stepped into our new, maybe-maybe-not-so temporary house. The house was really pretty, not exactly in the busy city but not way out in the country. On the outside the house was large, but a simple cream-beige color with plain black roofing to match. Upon walking in, we were in a foyer that split up into the , or following it the opposite way would take you to the sunroom, then would lead to the kitchen or another bedroom.

"So, who wants this room?" Ashton asked, turning to look at us.

"I'll take it," Michael raised an arm, smiling proudly for claiming the room as his own.

He left his suitcase by the door, before we carried on upstairs. I took the room farthest down the hallway, Ashton the one next to me closest to the staircase, while Luke and Calum picked the rooms across the hallway.

"Also, downstairs there's a gym and a little theatre room," Ashton informed us. "Now everyone take twenty minutes to unpack, then we can discuss plans for dinner. Okay?"

Everyone agreed to his plan, before dispersing. I went to my room, closing the door behind me before plopping down on my bed.

Pulling out my phone, I started to type a message to send to Max.

'hey we just got to the house. i miss you already –' I had started to type, but stopped upon hearing me door open.

"Hey I forgot about something," Ashton said, poking his head in.

"Daisy, we need to talk."

"Talk? About what?" I asked him, my heart racing in fear of what he'd mention.

"About you visiting a therapist..."
