I walked in and Grandma Mary smiled at me, it was ten thirty
and we weren't really given a curfew "Did you have fun sweetie?"
Grandma Mary asked me "Yes ma'am." I said and she smiled "You're
glowing." She said "I got kissed." I said "uh-oh!" She said and
I smiled I was still clutching my monkey. My phone rang "Uh-oh."
I said it was my mom. "Hello?" I asked "Caylee! How are you?"
She asked me "I'm okay." I said "How is your trip so far?" My mom
asked me "It's good." I said "I heard you are dancing." She said
"Yes ma'am, and I love it." I said "Good. Get a break in time."
My mom said "I will." I said We got here on June 12th and it's
June 16th now, we have been here for four days. "Do you love it
here?" My mom asked me "I do." I said "Good. I heard you're
seeing someone kind of." My mom said "Ashton, our neighbor. He's
a great guy." I said "You know I don't want you getting serious
with someone." She said "I know mom." I said "I'm going to call
Liam now. I love you. We miss you." She said "I love you too." I
said and we hung up.
I called Lauren next "How did your date go?" I asked "it
went good. I miss you! Tell me all about yours!" Lauren said
"First off at Dance I got smacked talk by them, and was told
Ashton was off limits so I told him we were leaving then." I said
"Go on!" Lauren said "We went to this little festival they were
having and we had fun, he won me a monkey, and we kissed when the
fireworks happened." I said "Oh my!" Lauren said "I want to be
there! I can't believe my little Caylee is growing up." Lauren
said and I giggled "I'm going to let you go. Call me sometime." I
said "Will do, this isn't the same." Lauren said "I know. I
know." I said and we hung up and I changed into my black tank top
and wore my blue A&F pajama bottoms and I kept my hair in a
When I walked in Aunt Alice was smiling "Savannah said it
looked like you two were having fun." She said "I was. I really
do like her." I said and she smiled at me. "Sit down." Aunt Alice
said softly and I sat down getting a little nervous. "Your dad is
coming this weekend to visit." She said "What?" I asked "He wants
to build a relationship with you." She said "Okay." I said and I
got up and went into my room. I changed into my gym shorts and a
T-shirt and sat on my bed letting memories of today come to mind.
Hoss came in and jumped on my bed and I rubbed him "You're a
dog." I said and he wagged his tail. I put my headphones in and
turned my Ipod on. I don't want to meet my dad, I want to spend
all the time I can with Caylee.
Around midnight I get a text from Caylee: Hey, are you still
up? Me: Yeah. Caylee: Meet me outside. I didn't even bother
texting her back I just went outside and Caylee was out there "I
can't sleep." Caylee said and I nodded "My dad is coming this
weekend." I said "Are you nervous?" Caylee asked me "I am." I
said "I will be your support. If you come to my dance compeition
Saturday first." Caylee said and I smiled at her, she looked
beautiful in her glasses and night clothes. "You are perfect." I
said and Caylee smiled at me. "I know I should be one of those
girls who don't want to be seen in their glasses but I know you
wouldn't mind. I can be myself with you and I love that." Caylee
said and I smiled at her, even Amber wasn't herself around me.
But Caylee isn't like any other girl. "What college do you want
to go to?" Caylee asked me "NYU." I said "We will be close
together." Caylee said and I smiled, I know this is early but I
want to be with her for the rest of my life. We talked until
about two in the morning and Caylee was finally starting nod off
and I was feeling better about seeing my dad this weekend. "Go
get some sleep." I said and Caylee nodded "Good-night." Caylee
said and this time she kissed my lips softly and I returned the
kiss. When she went inside I let Hoss out real quick and I
finally went to bed. With Caylee on my mind the whole time.
I went back in at two and I fell asleep with the monkey in
my arms. My alarm clock went off at five and I changed into
shorts and my dance T-shirt and I grabbed my dance bag. Grandma
Mary had a note: Cay, I'm not going in today. Have a good day. I
walked to the studio and this time I was there when everybody
else arrived so I wasn't going to get special treatment. I got
the cold shoulder from everybody but I didn't care. I did the
dance with the rest of them and then we all did our solos. "You
improved! Good job! Keep your emotions right." She said and I did
so. After I got done I grabbed my bag and walked outside to see
Ashton waiting for me. I ran up to him and wrapped my arms around
his neck and I kissed his lips softly. I knew they were still
here and probably watching. "Where to?" I asked "Out for lunch.
With your Uncle and Aunt." Ashton said "Aunt Penny and Uncle
Shane." I said and he nodded, Jacob, Bailey, and Riley. I love
When we got there I smiled and Riley held her arms out for
me. "How was dance?" Aunt Penny asked "Dance was good." I said
and I took Riley from her "Shane you remember Jeff's daughter
Caylee right?" She asked "How could I forget?" He asked and
smiled at me. We had a good lunch with them. "Shall we walk
around down town?" Aunt Penny asked "Sure." I said and Ashton
nodded, Jacob loved Ashton. I carried Bailey "You are more than
welcome to baby-sit while you're here." Aunt Penny said "I would
love to." I said "How about you and Ashton baby-sit tomorrow
afternoon/night?" Uncle Shane asked "Sure." We both said and
Bailey smiled at me. After we left I kissed Ashton on the cheek
"I had fun today thank you." I said and Ashton kissed my cheek.
"Anything for you." He said and I smiled. When we got back to our
yard he let Hoss out and I hugged Hoss's neck. "I miss Sam." I
said and he smiled at me "You can have Hoss anytime you can."
Ashton said. And I kissed his lips softly before I went back in
and he smiled at me. "I will see you later." He said and I smiled
