After I said good-bye to Savannah, Uncle Carl, and Aunt
Claire I slid into Jace's car and he put it in gear, he had a
nice little sport car. We pulled up at the hotel and Jace got
out. We wet into his room and he nodded at the outlet "You can
plug your phone in there."He said and I nodded. "I like Caylee."
Jace said "I do too. I finally talked her into being with me." I
said and he smiled "She is a keeper Ash." Jace said and I smiled
I knew Caylee was a keeper. We were texting now back and forth.
"Where do you want to go to school at?" Jace asked "Columbia." I
said "Do you play any sports?" Jace asked "Yes sir, Foot ball,
main player. Captain of the team." I said and he nodded "There
will be scouts there in the fall so I can hopefully get a
scholarship." I said "how are your grades?" Jace asked "They're
good, A's I scored a 2350 on the SATs." I said and Jace nodded.
"Is Caylee a dancer?" He asked me "Yes sir." I said "I can tell,
her mother was a dancer until she got pregnant. Your mom was
friends with her friend." Jace said and I looked at him.
That night I learned a lot about Jace and my mother and then
more about Caylee's parents. Caylee's mom was a dancer and
cheerleader, her dad did the foot ball team as well. Caylee
texted me, Caylee: I'm glad you are having fun Ash! I'm going to
bed. Sleep tight. Night. Me: Me too. Good night. I will see you
tomorrow. "What are you going to do when summer ends?" Jace asked
me "We honestly haven't brought it up. We have been busy playing
games or Caylee was." I said "What do you think will happen?" He
asked "I think we will still communicate. It's only until the
summer of next year. We will be both going to New York if we get
in." I said and Jace nodded. "I wish the best of luck to you."
Jace said and I smiled at him "thanks." I said "I'm proud of the
man you have become. You're a good person." Jace said and I
smiled at him "Thanks." I said "I would let to get to know you
better. I want to get to know you better." Jace said and I nodded
"I agree to." I said and he nodded.
That night Lauren and I applied to Juillard and we looked at
the audition for Julliard "February 11th, we're signed up. We
have to be there in San Francisco." I said and Lauren smiled at
me. "I'm done with dancing for the summer at the dance studio." I
said "Good you need a break." Lauren said "I can't believe you
don't want to stay more." I said "I don't want to interupt the
blossom of love." Lauren said and I giggled "have fun in
Colorado." I said and she smiled "I will be able to see you at
dance camp!" Lauren said and I giggled. I painted Lauren's nails
and she then painted mine and we giggled "You're going to win
Nate back right?" I asked "I will." Lauren said and I giggled at
her "You're beautiful!" I said "You are too." Lauren said and we
smiled at each other. "Let's go to the studio." I said "Okay."
Lauren said and we changed into our dance clothes "Grandma can we
go?" I asked "Here's the keys." She said smiling at us "Thank
you." I said and she smiled. We started walking and Lauren smiled
at me "Allie seems like she will be a good friend." Lauren said
and I smiled at her "I think so. Don't replace me though." I said
"I won't, you better not as well." Lauren said and I giggled.
We unlocked the studio and we turned on the music, we worked
on a dance that we made up when we were fourteen. I did two
blackflips, a jerky and Lauren did the same thing. "We could
improve it." I said "Yes we could." Lauren said and we did. We
made it more of a lyrical dance on my part since I'm excellent on
displaying of emotions. We are both really good at Acro dance, I
did an aerial and Lauren did the same and I smiled at her. I put
on the music to a good beat and I did the dance it started out as
a back layout, back tuck, back walkover, two cartwheels, a chest
stand, a elbow stand, front aerial, two handspring, a handstand,
another aerial, hand walking, kip up, roundoff, side aerial, and
ended it with a valdez. "Bravo! Bravo!" Abby said "Sorry." I said
"No don't be, Mary said you two were here dancing. You're an
excellent Acro dancer." She said "Thank you." I said "how would
you like to have a spot here until the end of summer?" Abby asked
me "I'm going to take a break from professional dancing until
dance camp." I said and she nodded "if you ever change your mind
you are always welcome." Abby said and I smiled at her.
I borrowed Grandma's Mary car around two in the morning and
I went to the airport and I hugged Lauren "Let me know when you
get there." I said "I will. I'm going to miss you." Lauren said
and I hugged her "Bye." I said "Bye." she said and I pulled away
when she walked in. I can't believe I'm not going to be dancing
anymore until Dance Camp in August, it was the 20th and I begin
Dance camp August 5th but still. My grades are perfect in school
all 100's I scored a 2400 on my SATs when I took it. I went home
and I went to bed and I curled up in my bed clinging to the
monkey Ashton won me. Ashton texted me: Ash: Are you still up?
Me: Yes I just dropped Lauren off. Ash: I'm sorry. I can't sleep.
Me: I'm sorry Ash. How are things with you and Jace? Ash: Good, I
can doze off now. Night! I smiled at his texts he loves texting
me before he falls asleep and if he can't fall asleep. I can't
wait to see Jason and for Jason to meet Ashton on the 1st, he's
coming then until the 5th and then he has to go back.
The next morning I got up early and I was outside on the
porch with Grandma Mary, she was sipping coffee I was drinking
Orange Juice and she smiled at me "This is nice." She said "This
is. Do you want to do yoga?" I asked and Grandma Mary giggled
she was 16 when she has my dad, who was 16 when he has Jason, so
Grandma Mary is 52 years old and she moves like a thirty year
old. Grandpa passed away fourteen years ago due to cancer so I
don't really remember him that well. "Okay get the yoga stuff."
She said and I smiled I came back with two yoga mats and we did
our yoga and then she went back to her coffee "Today I say we
shall spend it going shopping downtown. Us, Ashton, and
Savannah." Grandma Mary "What if he's with his dad?" I asked
"Then Savannah will have to live without Liam for a day then."
Grandma Mary said and I giggled at her. Liam walked out "Morning,
plans?" He asked "Downtown, it all depends on Ashton if Savannah
can come." Grandma Mary said and I smiled at him "Alright,
Savannah and I can't be together all the time. But I'm sure
Ashton will come." Liam said and I smiled at him.
