My alarm clock went off at two and I got up and I slowly
changed into my denim shorts and my you should dance shirt on and
I had on my flip-flops and I did my hair in the fish-braid. My
mom had to go out and by a litter box and litter for Sassy. I was
leaving that here. I carried two suitcases downstairs and then my
last one with my duffel bag downstairs and I smiled at Sassy who
was meowing at my feet, her bag was waiting for her when we had
to leave. There was a light knock on the door, I heard them
moving upstairs "Hey." I said Ashton and Savannah were coming
with us. "Want me to carry some bags out?" Ashton asked "Sure." I
said and we carried all but Sassy's bags out and Savannah let
Hoss out "Hey Hoss.I'm going to miss you." I said rubbing him
and he licked my lips. We went back into the house "Ready?"
Grandma asked us "Yes ma'am." I said and she smiled at me. I put
Sassy in her bag and she didn't care for that.
We got to the airport and we went to the parking deck, I put
my duffel bag over my shoulder, I got Sassy's bag, it had wheels,
Ashton got two out of three suitcases, Liam got his one
suitcase and backpack and then he got mine. We all walked to the
airport and we went up to the check out "Three bags?" The flight
attendant asked looking at the ticket "Yes ma'am, and a live
pet." I said she nodded and she printed the ticket and put the
labels on the suitcases and I went back to the group "Bye
Savannah." I said hugging her "Bye." She said and then "Bye
Grandma, I love you." I said "I love you too Caylee. I'm going to
miss you." She said and I smiled at her, Sassy was not enjoying
herself. "Bye Ashton. I love you." I said "I love you too baby."
He said and we were able to have one more kiss together. Liam
said good-byes to everybody and I went through the security check
I just stood here watching Caylee walk away to the security
line and I felt my heart break. I shook my head "Let's go home
kids." Mary said and I smiled "Can I drive Mary?" I asked "Yes
Ashton. Don't worry you will see her soon." Mary said and I
smiled at her. "How can you be so strong?" I asked "I know they
both left happy Ash." Mary said and I smiled at her. We got home
and I went to my room and I laid on my bed letting Hoss lay with
me, I was rubbing him. I just couldn't believe Caylee was gone.
She isn't here any more, I will admit I'm excited that I get to
see her some while I'm at my dad's but that's not good enough.
She leaves for dance camp tomorrow while I leave to visit. I'm
looking forward to her birthday week suprises at least, she will
Liam and I got on the plane and I put the pet stroller
under the seat and I smiled at Liam "How do you feel?" I asked
"Fine, I miss her." Liam said "Are you two going to work out?" I
asked "I doubt it Cay. We're sixteen, we have two years. We're
going to remain good friends though." Liam said and then he
looked at me "But I know you and Ashton will stay together." He
said and our plane began to take off. Sassy looked up at me and
she meowed at me. We had a half hour layover in Texas and I spent
it holding Sassy in my arms who was scared out of her mind.
"We're almost home." I said our flight left Florida at four in
the morning, one in California time, it's seven in Florida time,
six here, and four in California time, our flight lands at seven
California time, ten Florida time.
When the plane landed Liam got his backpack and he got my
duffel bag out and I got Sassy's bag out from under the seat. We
followed the crowd and when we made it to baggage claim I saw my
mom, my step-dad, Bryson, Sean, and Landon. Landon jumped into my
opens arms "I missed you sissy." Landon said "I missed you too
buddy." I said and my mom hugged me "I missed you sweetie. What
did you do to your hair?" She said "I missed you too mom.I dyed
it." I said "I missed you Cay." Jack said "I missed you too." I
said and we waited for the luggages to come. I grabbed all three
of mine and my mom rolled her eyes at me. I grabbed one with one
hand and Sassy in my other hand, Jack took the other two and he
smiled at me. We loaded up the car and I sat in my spot. Sassy
stayed in her bag. I texted Ashton: Well I'm on my way home now.
I love you. Ashton: Good. I miss you. I love you too. I smiled
and I texted Lauren: Can I meet you at three? Lauren: Yes!!!!
Today I'm just going to hang out with my friends one last
time before school starts. I went jogging with Hoss when we got
home and then I changed and had breakfast with Aunt Alice and
them. Savannah was moping around today, I know they are going to
stay good friends at least. "Hey man!" Zach said "Zach." I said
"Caylee's gone?" He asked me "Yup." I said "Do you miss her?"
Zach asked "Yeah, but let's hang." I said and Zach high-five me
and I smiled at him. Allie smiled at me when she saw me "Welcome
back! Don't feel bad I miss Caylee too." Allie said and I smiled
at her. Amber came up to me "Since Caylee is gone can we date?"
Amber asked "Nope. Caylee and I will make it work. "I said "I
don't think it will last." Amber said "Well that's your opinion."
I said and I walked off it appears I will need a mnew group of
friends when I get back.
I got home around eight and I smiled at Sam when I went in
"Sam!" I said who jumped up and licked my face "I missed you." I
said and Sam smelt Sassy and wagged her tail "Come on." I said
and Sam followed me when I carried my one suitcase and duffel
bag, Jack carried the other two into my room and he smiled at me.
"Welcome home." Jack said and I smiled I unpacked some clothes,
but all of dance clothes I put in my own suitcase for dance along
with my pillow, sheets, and blanket set. I let Sassy out and Sam
licked Sassy. My mom came in "Can we talk Cay?" She asked "Yeah."
I said "You were right, I can't tell you who you can or can't
hang out with." My mom said "But just be careful." My mom said
"mom, I can't get pregnant but hanging out with a pregnant
friend." I said and she smiled at me, "how old is Sassy?" My mom
asked me "She's 14 weeks old, don't worried she's fixed." I said
and my mom smiled at me. "Sassy is a beautiful fluff ball." My
mom said and I smiled at her.
After being forced to spend all morning with the family
Liam and I finally broke up around two thirty, Liam has his own
car now. I got in my car and I went to the beach and Lauren was
waiting for me on a blanket. I ran up to her and I took my
flip-flops off and I sat down next to her. I hugged Lauren "I
missed you! Happy belated birthday!" I said and Lauren squeezed
me "Thanks. I am so glad you're back in town." Lauren said "For
tonight then I leave tomorrow."I said "I know, but I missed you."
Lauren said "You're almost eight weeks?" I asked "Yeah." Lauren
said "Morning sickness?" I asked "Just started. But I'm
constantly tired." Lauren said "I'm here for you Lauren." I said
and Lauren hugged me "This summer sucked. Not having you here.
The whole way to Colorado my parents were going on and on."
Lauren said and I smiled.
I'm in the yard with Hoss and Mary walks up with her
boyfriend "Hi Ashton." Mary said "Hello." I said "Cheer up. You
will be with your dad tomorrow." Mary said "Thanks." I said and
she smiled at me and then they went inside. I looked at my clock,
my flight leaves at four in the morning here and I will get there
at seven in the morning their time. I will be able to see Caylee
hopefully next week, I already have the whole birthday week plans
and gifts made up I'm just waiting on the permission from my dad
for it I can do it or not.
I got up at two and Aunt Alice, Uncle Carl, and Savannah took
me to the airport, I told Hoss good-bye and I hugged everyone
good-bye when we got to the airport. I went through the security
line and I smiled. I got in California at seven and my dad was
waiting for me. "Ashton." He said "dad." I said hugging him and
we got my bag. "What is your girlfriend doing today?" My dad
asked me "today she's traveling." I said "Dance camp?" He asked
"Yes sir, in San Fransico." I said "We live not far from Modesto,
the next town over." My dad said "Will I be able to visit her
sometime?" I asked "Yes Ash." My dad said smiling at me. On the
way t o there house I told him all about my plans for her
birthday week and he said it was a good idea.
When I got there I was prepared to meet everybody, "This is
my wife Sarah, your brother Tony, sisters Chyenne, Lizzie, Hope,
and Bella." My dad said and I smiled they all have brown hair and
blue eyes. They showed me my room and I put my suitcase in my
room. "How was the flight?" They asked "It was good." I said and
they smiled at me, it felt weird being three hours behind now I
know how different it was for Caylee. I love all my little
sisters and even Tony. Tony and I played basketball the first day
and Hope wanted me to do tea party with her and I did, and Bella
wanted me to hold her so I played with her. "Do you mind
baby-sitting them? We have a dinner meeting. I promise tomorrow
we will hang." My dad said "Sure dad." I said smiling at
