New Year, Same Love (Ashton Irwin)
thought about saving this until the new year but time is an illusion anyway so ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
also @pxrtugals’s birthday is today and i havent made her actual present yet bc im the worst lmao
Ever since the day you met Ashton’s family, you had sort of taken the role of being Lauren and Harry’s older sister. Anything they felt like they couldn’t go to their mother or brother with, they would call you – and no matter what time it was, you would always answer.
When news of the breakup got around to them, they were understandably heartbroken. Lauren had called you the moment she found out, begging you to tell her it wasn’t true. You couldn’t, of course, but you promised her that nothing would change about spending time with her and Harry – and she knew that when you promised her something, you were going to see it through no matter what.
And that was probably what landed you in this mess in the first place.
It was a normal New Year’s Eve. You found yourself unable to stress that fact enough: it was normal.
Anne had insisted that you come over for the party – you’d done so since you and Ashton met nearly four years ago, and you didn’t want to – as she put it – ruin the tradition. She didn’t tell either Lauren or Harry that you were coming – she wanted them to be surprised – and you couldn’t help but laugh as the two tackled you the moment you walked in the door. Anne told you when she invited you that Ashton wouldn’t be there – he wanted to stay in LA and party with their friends – and that was one of the main reasons you agreed.
So why was it, half an hour before midnight, the boys decided to show up?
