Caylee texted me when she got home and I was glad. Monday
wasn't that bad, the school was celebrating the big win.
Mackenzie was still being my friend but I could tell she was
keeping her distance from me. "Kenz, what's wrong?" I asked her
at lunch "I don't want to get you in trouble Ash." Mackenzie said
and I nodded "Don't worry. I will handle it Kenz." I said and
Mackenzie nodded "How so?" Mackenzie asked "I just won't tell
Caylee. Somethings don't have to be told." I said and Mackenzie
smiled at me "I want to be her friend, don't get me wrong."
Mackenzie said "Don't worry." I said and she smiled at me "Do you
think on Wednesday we could get something to eat after school?"
Mackenzie asked and I nodded "Sure." I said "Will you tell Cay?"
She asked me "No, I don't want to worry her. It's nothing bad." I
said and she smiled at me.
After school on Wednesday, Mackenzie and I took my car to
Denny's and she sat beside me. I was feeling a little bit guilty
about going to dinner with Mackenzie and not telling Caylee, but
I know Caylee is at the doctor's with Lauren and then they are
going to meet Caylee's friend. "How many?" The waitress asked
"Two." I said and she nodded. Mackenzie smiled at me "I'm glad
we're finally getting to spend time together." Caylee said "I
know, it's been crazy so far." I said "It's our senior year."
Kenz said and I smiled at her "I'm looking forward for the rest
of the year." I said and Mackenzie smiled at me. After dinner I
took Mackenzie home and she leaned in and kissed me. This time
for a strange reason I didn't pull away from her. "I'm sorry."
Mackenzie said and I just nodded.
We are at the beach now, waiting for for Katie and Kylie.
"How are you feeling?" I asked Lauren "I'm fine. I'm excited."
Lauren said "Are you sure?" I asked "Yes." Lauren said and I
smiled at her "Hope Lynn Campbell." Lauren said smiling at me
"I'm sure she will look just like you." I said and Lauren smiled
at me. Katie and Kylie soon walked up. Katie had Kylie on her hip
and I smiled at her. Katie's dirty blonde hair was pulled up into
a ponytail, Kylie's dirty blonde hair was into pig tails. "Katie
this is Lauren, Lauren this is Katie." I said "It's nice to meet
you." Katie said and Lauren smiled, Kylie smiled at me. "How
hard was birth?" Lauren asked "It was hard, nobody was there. I
was just like you, my parents didn't want me, my baby's sperm
donor didn't want anything to do with her." Katie said "What are
you having?" Katie asked "A girl." Lauren said and Katie smiled
"It's hard but it's worth it." Katie said "What do you do?"
Lauren asked "I attend classes in the morning, I work part time
at the store for now, and then I come home and take care of
Kylie." Katie said "What are you majoring in?" I asked this time
"I'm majoring in Nursing." Katie said and I smiled "You look like
a dancer." Katie said and I nodded. "Never give up. I was a
dancer until I got pregnant." Katie said "How old are you?"
Lauren asked "I'm 19, I was pregnant at 15, turned 16, and Kylie
is three years old."
Caylee's Pov: Caylee's Dream
"Caylee Blevins!" The dance instructor said. I walked up
stage with my dance shorts and dance shirt on with my hair in a
bun. "Hello, I will be dancing to Give me love." I said and they
nodded at me. I began by doing my front ariel, and I slowly did
the dance that I have worked on since I was twelve to this song,
for my Juillards audition. Lauren was watching me too. I was
keeping my emotions to the song, and when I went to do my side
ariel, I messed up and fell. They gasped but they didn't say
anything. I was like a deer in the headlights for a minute. I
then went back to my dance like nothing happened until I messed
up on my twirl and instead of doing four twirls I only did three.
I could tell they knew I messed up. "Thank you for your time."
They said and I walked off to Lauren who was huge now since she's
due in a few weeks. "I did horrible!" I said "No you didn't
Caylee, you did fine!" Lauren said "Were you not watching me?" I
asked "I was, so you did a few mess up." Lauren said "Juillard
isn't looking for fine, they are looking for excellent!" I said
"Oh you will get in!" Lauren said.
The day Lauren gave birth to Hope, I got a letter from
Juillard. I'm at the hospital with them and Lauren smiled at me
"Open it!" Lauren said "Dear Miss Blevins, we regret to inform
you that you did not get into Juillards." I said "Oh Caylee."
Lauren said "Juillard is my dream! I have spent my whole life
basically working towards it!" I said "It's not the end of the
world!" Lauren said and I nodded. I smiled at Hope and then we
talked about Hope instead of Juillard.
"You didn't get in?" Ashton asked "No!" I said "Well I won't be
with a girl who can't get into that school." Ashton said "What?!"
I asked "I'm with Mackenzie, I have cheated on her with you."
Ashton said "No!!" I said and he hung up on me. "I can't do this
anymore." I said
"Caylee! Wake up! You're screaming." Lauren said shaking me,
Sassy and Sam were right up in my face too. "I'm sorry." I said
"What was your dream about?" Lauren asked me, I turned the light
on and I put my glasses on. I crawled up into the bed with her.
Sassy jumped up and she curled up on my lap, "I had a dream about
the Juillard's audition I have." I said "Caylee, your audition
isn't until February 11th." Lauren said "I know, I'm just really
worried and nervous about it." I said "Caylee, you are an
excellent dancer. Don't worry. Just work harder." Lauren said and
I smiled at her "Thanks." I said "I'm thinking of talking to
Nate." Lauren said "uh-oh." I said "Don't worry, it's not a big
deal." Lauren said "Let me know if you need me." I said and she
smiled at me "Let's go back to bed." Lauren said and I smiled at
Caylee stayed by my side today at school, I wore my work
clothes today since I have to go to work after school and I don't
have enough time to go back home and change. I walk up to Nate's
truck and I go up to him, he was with a group of his friends.
"Can I talk to you?" I asked all of his friends went away without
a word. I don't really care what they have to say. "What's up?"
Nate asked me, Nate is tall, he has green eyes and brown hair. "I
wanted to tell you that I know the sex." I said and Nate looked
at me "What is it?" He asked "Now you care?" I asked and he
looked at me "It's a girl." I said and I saw a smile on Nate's
face "I'm sorry I have denied it. And called you a slut." Nate
said "No worries." I said "Can we go somewhere and talk?" Nate
asked "I have to work." I said and Nate nodded "I will text you
or something later." Nate said and I nodded at him.
After school today I went over to my mom's because I needed
to talk to her. "Hey Ash!" Jon and Clarissa said and I smiled at
them "Is my mom here?" I asked "Yes!" Jon said and I nodded at
them and I went inside "Hey Ash! What a lovely surprise!" My mom
said she was holding Emma who is now five months old. "I need
your advice on something." I said "That is never good." My mom
said and I smiled "I love Caylee, I really do. But I kissed
Mackenzie, and I don't want to hurt Caylee's feelings but I need
to be honest to her." I said "Honey, you do need to be honest.
Skype with her." My mom said and I nodded at her "Mackenzie is a
nice girl, but if you have strong feelings for Mackenzie then you
need to be honest to Caylee." My mom said "Thanks mom." I said
and she smiled at me. "You should stay for dinner." She said and
I nodded "I will mom. Now let me see my baby sister." I said and
she handed a happy Emma over to me.
