Synopsis: A group of friends have decided to spend their Christmas holidays in the mountains but when she has to share a cabin with her ex boyfriend's brother, what will happen from there? AshleyxJeff.
Chapter 1: Chris's Idea
Ashley parked her car outside as she had just arrived at her best friend's house. She had no idea what was the main reason behind the meeting that Trish had to call her over to. But then curiosity began to arouse the dirty blonde from the time she entered the driveway, she saw four cars that were already parked at the house.
She wrapped her scarf around her neck, put on her gloves and placed her snow cap firmly over her head before she went out of her car. She was greeted with the cold air brushing past her face as she got out. Winter had arrived and the special holiday was coming just around the corner. Ashley was so excited about Christmas and to just see the trees beautifully decorated and lighted made her smile.
Ashley beamed when she came upon a Christmas wreath hanging on the door. She knocked on the door and waited patiently for an answer. She was soon greeted by a blonde with a big smile flashing on her face.
Ashley wrapped her arms around her best friend as they shared a hug.
"Hey Trish," said Ashley and then she stepped into the hallway and took off her coat and scarf and placed on the coat rack as Trish closed the door. Ashley could hear the loud talking and laughter coming from the next room.
"Everyone else is in the living room. Come on."
They walked over to the living room area where the source of the laughter came from. Ashley smiled when she saw her friends sitting down and having a fun time. The laughter died down when they saw the dirty blonde entered the room and smiled.
"Good morning everyone!" said Ashley.
"'Morning Ashley," they said in unison and she went over to greet them with hugs and kisses.
"Would you like a hot chocolate?" Trish asked as Ashley made herself comfortable on the couch.
"Sure that would be great!" said Ashley.
"Marshmallows or whipped cream?"
"Coming right up!" said Trish. "The cookies should be ready by now so they'll be out from the oven in a bit!"
"Sounds good," said Paul. "Just make sure they don't run away."
His girlfriend Mickie rolled her eyes and laughed. "That will never happen."
"It could happen," said Randy as he placed his mug of hot chocolate on the coffee table. "Once that gingerbread man is decorated, he'll come out to life!"
"And then he'll jump down from the counter to the floor," his girlfriend Candice added with a giggle.
"And then he'll yell," Maria continued on with the sentence and looked at her boyfriend Brian.
"Run run as fast as you can," he said in a squeaky voice to imitate the gingerbread man. "You can't catch me, I'm the gingerbread man!"
The group of friends cackled into laugher.
"I rest my case," said Paul. "So Trish I would advise you to make sure that all doors are closed…and windows too."
Trish made a playful roll of the eyes. "Oh whatever Paul! I'll be back in a minute."
Trish went to the kitchen and Ashley turned and made a smile at her friends. Among the group were couples and she couldn't be happier for Mickie and Paul, Maria and Brian; Randy and Candice.
Just like Ashley, Jeff Hardy was single and he had happened to be the brother of her ex boyfriend. It had been about a month since her world had crashed down before her and Ashley never come to terms with the breakup since then.
"So Ashley how are you?" Jeff asked with a smile.
"I'm good thanks," Ashley lied. She put on a best smile as possible to make them convinced that she was when in truth she wasn't feeling at all great. "And how's everyone?"
"We're doing great," said Mickie. "Just wondering why we're all here. Did she tell you what this is about?"
"No I don't," said Ashley. "I was just about to ask you guys that."
Brian chuckled. "Well Trish told us to come over because we have a meeting. I'm guessing she told you the same right?"
"Yeah she did," said Ashley.
Paul let out a deep sigh and made a roll of the eyes. "So much for missing Terminator on HBO. I probably missed the start of it by now."
"Then turn on the TV, will you?" Jeff laughed.
"Nah that will be disrupt our little moment together," said Paul with a chuckle. "You know it's been a while since we all sat down together and talk about stuff."
"Yeah it has been a while hasn't it?" Mickie said. "Well maybe this meeting is Trish's way of having a get together."
"Well it sure sounded really urgent," said Maria with a giggle.
"Let's all ask her what this meeting is about," Candice put in.
"I couldn't agree more," said Randy.
They were just as curious as Ashley was about why Trish had called them over. But they didn't have to wait much longer though as Trish came back into the living room with a mug with both hands and the steam was appearing from the brim and began to dance in the air.
"Here's your hot chocolate with marshmallows as requested!" said Trish as she handed it to Ashley cautiously. "Careful though, it's really hot!"
"Well that's the way it should be," Ashley giggled. "Thanks."
"You're welcome," Trish beamed.
"So Trish, are the cookies are ready?" Maria asked as the dirty blonde blew her hot drink softly before taking a couple sips. Ashley could feel her throat tingled a bit by the hotness of the drink yet her body started to feel warmed little by little in an instant.
"Yes they are!" Trish announced happily. "Now I just have to get the icing from the fridge. I have different varieties of candy so I can start on decorating them!"
Ashley smiled as she swallowed a bit of hot chocolate before placing her mug on the coffee table.
"That sounds great. Now isn't there something you want to tell us?"
"Uh oh yeah I have chocolate chips as well!" said Trish with a quick nod of the head. "I should have more of that in the pantry."
"That's not what she meant and you know it," said Randy. "So spill the beans and I mean every last one of them."
Trish scoffed and placed her hands on her hips. "So I can't invite my friends over for some hot chocolate and cookies?"
"Oh so this is what it's all about then?" Jeff asked. "Hot chocolate and cookies? Wow, this is the best meeting that I've ever been to!"
"You said it dude!" said Brian with a thumbs up.
The laughter filled the room and then Trish cleared her throat to speak and to grab their attention.
"Okay to be honest I have no idea why you guys have to come here."
Trish had already predicted what their reaction would be and she was proven right when the faces of disbelief were all looking at her and then it wasn't long until they had come up with one response to this:
"You're kidding right?" Candice began to ask.
Trish sighed and crossed her arms across her chest. "I wouldn't be saying this if I'm not."
"I don't understand," Ashley began as she raised a brow of confusement. "You called us all down here for this meeting that sounded really important. So now you're telling us there's isn't one?"
"Well no…I mean yes!" Trish let out a frustrated sigh and stomped her foot. "This was Chris's idea!"
"Chris?" Randy asked. "What was he planning?"
Trish was about to open her mouth again but then no word came out of it as a new voice took over instead.
"He's planning to get us all into an adventure!"
Trish turned around to see her boyfriend Chris Jericho who had just arrived home. He was standing at the doorway with a smirk on his face.
"You're just one minute away from getting your hair pulled off mister!"
Chris had his hands up to his chest in defense. "Hey! Hey! Easy Trish, I just got a new haircut."
"Will you stop being funny?!" Trish snapped and gestured a hand to point at the group. "Look, I've done all your work! Are you happy?"
"Yes I'm happy about that actually," said Chris with a smile and kissed her on the temple. "Thanks sweetie."
"Don't you sweetie me!" said Trish fumed and then grabbed the bag he brought in with him. "And what's this you've got here? This better have groceries in it."
Chris snapped his fingers and made a face. "I knew my instincts were telling me to go to that supermarket on the way back."
"I'm sorry! I'm sorry!" Chris said apologetically. "I was just so exci--"
"I don't want to hear any of your excuses!" Trish cut in as she flung her hand angrily into the bag in and began rummaged for the contents.
"So Chris you mentioned something about 'getting us all into an adventure'," Jeff began to say. "What exactly do you mean by that?"
Chris smirked. It was time for him to reveal his plan to the group.
"Well my friend…"
"The Big Bear?" Trish questioned, looking at brochure she took out from the bag. She flipped the brochure over to the back before turning to him with her eyebrow raised. "Chris…what's going on?"
Chris had his arm around his girlfriend's shoulder and then said, "I'll tell you what's going on." He turned to the group and his smile got wider when he made his announcement.
"We're going to the mountains!"
The group of eight people exchanged looks while Trish's eyes grew in shock and turned to him as if to say, "We are?" Chris chuckled at her reaction and simply nodded.
"So this meeting is finally going somewhere," said Paul as she stroked his chin a bit. "Interesting."
Ashley thought the same as she leaned forward a bit from her seat as she was keen to know more of a possible trip that Chris had told them. It just might be her cure that she needed to help her get out of her misery.
