I was sitting in mine and Caroline's room when there was a faint knock on the door. I looked up and saw Ashton at the door. He smiled at me. "Can I come in?" I smiled.
"Come in." He sat down in my bed and kissed my cheek.
"Happy new year, cutie! That midnight kiss was the highlight of my night." He pulled me close.
"Ahem." We both looked up at the door. Caroline made a motion with her thumb telling Ashton to get out. He quickly exited looking fearful of Caroline's wrath.
Caroline sat down on her bed, looked at me and said, "You know exactly what I want to hear, so start talking girlie." I took a deep breath and started.
"A while ago, before you knew me, I was dating Ashton. We usually skyped, but sometimes he would surprise me at school. When the band started getting big, he totally dropped contact. It broke me really. I kept calling, texting, but nothing worked. I pretty much spent an entire summer in my room, crying. He was the first person to make me cry over a boy. That was three years ago. I never forgave him. That's why I really didn't want to come here. When we got here, I was really upset because Ashton didn't recognize me. I went for a walk on the beach and then he finally recognized me and we kissed and yesterday Brian texted me asking about Australia, but I never told him about Australia and then Ashton kissed me at midnight tonight and I really like Brian, but I think I might love Ashton and I don't know what to do." I finished my whole story with a deep breath.
"Well why didn't you tell me? You wouldn't have to sneak around. But I am disappointed in you for being a cheater. But I can talk to Ashton if you'd like? It's really too late to be thinking about this stuff and we're both kinda drunk so good night. I promise you we'll get through it." Caroline laid down and turned out the light. I laid down and tried to fall asleep but I couldn't. Every time I tried to sleep, I'd think about Brian or Ashton. I couldn't get them out of my head.
