"Wha-" Ash starts but I reach over and hit him in the chest.
"No. Sh." Then I start belting out the lyrics like my life depended on it. I can feel Ash 's eyes on me so I calm down a bit but still continue singing.
By the time the song ends, we 're a couple lights away from Jake 's. That stupid, over-played, new Adele song comes on.
"Next." The song skips and I hear Ash tsk at me. "Oh god don 't tell me that you 're corrupted too."
"Have you ever even listened to it?"
"Then try. Previous." The song starts playing and I slowly start dying.
"This is stupid." Ash puts his hand …show more content…
I see." He thinks for a minute. "I think I can work it into my schedule."
"Wait, what? Seriously?" I look at him completely surprised. "You haven 't even seen my work. For all you know I suck."
"I have seen your work Ms. Gore Princess and even if I hadn 't I can 't pass down the chance to teach someone."
"Gore Princess?" Ash jumps in.
"It my instagram page." I respond.
"Anyway, I 'll have Ash let you know when I have some time, okay?"
"If he doesn 't flee the scene." Me and Jake laugh. "I should probably take him back to his hotel now. And by the way that whole phone call thing this morning was a joke."
"I know. I was just fucking with him." He winks as I turn and start walking towards the door.
"Lets go I guess." Ash says quietly. We walk out together and the drive is quiet until two block away from his hotel. We 're stopped at a red light when Ash breaks the silence. He says something but I couldn 't hear him.
"Please look at me. I 'm half-deaf." He turns his head. His eyes are slightly red.
"I 'm not going to leave."
"W-What? What are you talking about?"
"You say that as if I was going to really …show more content…
I will never break my promises."
"Except that 's one promise you can 't keep. Nothing lasts forever. Everyone dies." I feel tears start to roll down my cheeks.
"Just because you die doesn 't mean you 're gone." We sit in silence for a while. I cry quietly. Ash just stares out the window.
I was lost in my own thoughts when a familiar hand wrapping around mine brings me back. Ash was holding my hand. He softly rubbed the back of my hand with his thumb. I looked up at him and we made eye contact.
"Feeling your touch is the only thing that has felt real in years. It 's one of the few sure things I 've had in life. You make me feel alive. Before I met you, I was just on autopilot. I didn 't make any of my own decisions. I was miserable. And then I sat next you on that plane. Seeing you react to the height was adorable. Your poems are amazing. You are perfect. My definition of perfect." He pauses for a second. "A, I am not going anywhere. I am going to stay right here, next to you, for as long as I 'm allowed to."
I knew he was going to say more but I didn 't let him. I kissed him. I just kissed him.
I just kissed Ash
