All day my mind was on Caylee, when I did chores and then
while I waited for her to return. I was told to take Hoss out so
I took him out and I saw Caylee pull up and I smiled at her. "Hey
Caylee!" I said when she stepped out and she blew me off. "What
happened? What did I do?" I asked not sure of what happened again
"Just stay away. I don't need to get my heart broken, you're the
typical heart-breaker." Caylee said and before I could speak to
justify myself she turned around and went inside. She talked to
somebody, I could tell she went to dance. Who would ruined my
rep? I sat on the step and pulled out my phone and called Allie,
Amber's best friend, Amber is my ex-girlfriend. "Hello?" Allie
asked "What did you say to Caylee?" I asked "Ashton." She said
making my name sound like a disease. "What did you say?" I asked
"Just the truth." Allie said "Amber broke up with me." I said
"Because you're a cheater, and liar." Allie said "I didn't cheat
or lie to Amber." I said "You did too." Allie said "Caylee is a
good girl." I said "I know that's why I don't want her to get
hurt." Ashton said "I wouldn't hurt her."I said "Yeah right."
Allie said and she hung up on me.
Aunt Alice walked out and looked at me "You okay kiddo?"
She asked me "I don't understand girls." I said "You never will
my dear." Alice said and I smiled at her "How can I fix it with
Caylee?" I asked "You really like him, don't you?" Aunt Alice
asked "I do. "I said and she smiled at me "Work hard. Prove to
her you're not like they are telling her." Alice said and I
smiled at her "You will do it." Aunt Alice said and I nodded at
her and Mary walked out "Ashton, dear can I speak to you?" Mary
asked "Yes ma'am." I said walking over to her "What happened with
Caylee?" She asked "I'm not sure I thought things were fine last
night and now today she hates my guts." I said "She's a teenager.
She will come around." Mary said and I nodded "thank you." I said
and she smiled at me "I will work on her." Mary said and I smiled
Ashton's and Caylee's Pov:
Caylee walked out about half an hour later "I don't like
you, okay? I don't have time to date." Caylee said "Who said
anything about dating?" Ashton asked "Oh yeah. I'm sorry." Caylee
said feeling herself blush. "I'm fine with just being freinds."
Ashton said calmly "Okay, I'm a dancer though. My schedule is
pretty full." Caylee said "That's okay." Ashton said feeling
pleased with how things are. "Can you promise me something
though?" Ashton asked "Sure." Caylee said "When you get upset at
me, come to me don't get upset before hand." Ashton said and
Caylee turned beat red "I will." Caylee stammered out. "Do you
want to catch a movie as friends?" Ashton asked "I have to get up
early." Caylee said "Want to just sit out here and stare at the
stars?" Ashton asked "Okay." Caylee said and Ashton smiled. His
phone rang so he answered it "Hello?" Ashton said and then "Sure,
I will pick you up around eight." Ashton said "Sorry Caylee."
Ashton said "No problem. You have plans?" Caylee asked "Yeah,
with Mackenzie." Ashton said "oh okay. Have fun." Caylee said
feeling like an idiot.
After Ashton said he had plans with Mackenzie "I will let
you go get ready." I said casually and Ashton nodded. I went
inside and then up to my room and I called Lauren "He's seeing
one of his friends." I said "Caylee?" Lauren asked "Yes." I said
"It's your fault. You played with his heart. You're the heart
breaker." Lauren said giving me the cold hard truth. "You're
right. What do I do?" I asked "You just be happy for him." Lauren
said "How do I fake it?" I asked "Just put on a smile and act
it." Lauren said and I nodded "I can do that." I said and after
we hung up I went downstairs and my grandma smiled at me "Are you
going out tonight?" Grandma Mary asked "No ma'am, I'm staying in
with you." I said "Correction dear, I have a date." Grandma Mary
said. Great, even my own Grandma is going out. It was four
o'clock too. I still had hours of being home alone. I changed
into my black shorts and my Dance T-shirt and I left my hair
alone and put on my pumas.
I headed out the door and put my headphones in and I headed
down the street and started jogging. I want to jog away the
memories and jog away today. After a few miles of running I
turned around and when I got home I got some water and then I
went outside in the yard. I had a yoga mat and I started doing
my yoga and then Ashton's car pulled up and I didn't look up but
I heard one door open and close and then another one. When I came
back up I saw Mackenzie and Ashton today and I felt something in
my heart break. I see a hand waving and I look up and I pause my
music, "Do you remember Caylee?" Ashton asked Mackenzie "Hi, were
you doing yoga?" Mackenzie asked me "Yeah." I said "That's cool."
Mackenzie said "We're going to get ice cream, do you want to
come?" Ashton asked me "No thanks." I said "Okay I will be a
minute." Ashton said leaving us and Mackenzie and I stared at
each other "You dance?" She asked "Yeah." Is said "Watch out for
Allie. She will run her mouth." Mackenzie said "Okay." I said
and she nodded at me. Ashton came out "Sorry I had to talk to
Alice. Shall we go?" Ashton asked "Yeah. See you around."
Mackenzie said and I nodded.
