hellooo sexy humans! I know there's a lot of time between my updates and I'm so, so sorry. but I'm having serious troubles with writing in general. it goes little by little and I take advantage of those moments as much as I can. so I promise, things are still coming, I'm not letting go yet.

I have currently finished (posting) Alice, the first book of the Twisted Fairytales series! please give it a read if you're in need of crazy 5SOS fiction, because I promise it's good. I'm working on the second book and I'll update everyone once it's posted!

now, we're here to this one shot. it's very long, but that's because I first planned to make it into a short story. and then I figured, fuck it, it has smut, you guys deserve something in here and it could be a huge one shot as well. therefore, this. I apologise for the minimal smut, but I just really really really wanted to give you all something to read

!!! PLEASE NOTE that if you, at this moment, are not in the mood / need for something sad, then please take the time to read this another time. I can imagine that sometimes you just don't need something to cry over. and sometimes you do, but alright.

this one shot is based on the Dutch / English song by Marco Borsato and Matt Simons (that I added in the media (: ). I am aware there's also a complete English version of this song, but the Dutch / English one has more different verses than the English one so yeah. also, by saying 'based', I mean based and thought of by myself, because I simply came up with this by listening to the song and reading the lyrics.

and lastly, very lastly, ENJOY x

Contains: loads of story, sadness, top!Ashton

Before

~ In the early of the morning,
you spoke my name so softly
And I knew you would say,
that it was time to go. ~

Ashton had seen this moment coming by the time it was actually happening. It had been hard at first, to understand and live with, especially just after the news had been dropped. It had been like a hurricane heading his way and with no way of escaping. That's what it felt like, even if he had recovered from the news a little, because he still carried it with him everywhere he went. After all, it wasn't just a small thing.

The soft calling of his name woke him up in the early of the morning, his eyes trying to force themselves open slowly as his brain tried to register that he was awakening. It had become quite a normal thing, to wake up so early somewhere along his planned sleep, always with the thought that this could be the moment. Never before had it been because of that though, always because his help was needed. But today, he just knew it wasn't.

"Ashton?" The way his name was spoken so softly, almost made him miss it, if it weren't for the fact he was basically a well-trained dog, when it came to hearing his name in the night. It was lovely, so soft, but as always it also worried him, making him flutter his eyes open and focusing them tiredly on his lover. He felt the need to shut his eyes again, let himself wake up properly, but he couldn't bring himself to. If Calum needed him, he would be there. Calum was his everything and all he ever needed. Ashton was convinced he deserved all of the time he could give to the younger male and all the love he had inside him, if not more.

"What's it, baby?" Ashton mumbled sleepily, his voice low and making him remember how Calum had always shivered at the sound, because he found it incredibly hot. His lips tugged up a little at that fact, eyes focusing in more on his lover's beautiful brown eyes. Right now wasn't the moment to get caught up in memories.

Calum still managed to get a light blush on his cheeks from Ashton calling him 'baby', especially with that low voice, as his lips tugged up a little as well. Ashton had always found that adorable, when Calum was blush-ey and shy, making sure to do it as often as possible. To make his lover, his husband, blush like that. Calum then spoke softly again, and even if Ashton undoubtedly already knew what he was going to say, he still gave the younger male his undivided attention. "It's time to go."
