After I picked Mackenzie up I had to run back home to get
money from Aunt Alice. We pull up to the yard and I see Caylee
doing yoga and I felt my heart break. "You really like her don't
you?" Mackenzie asked me "Yeah I do." I said and she smiled at
me. "She hates my guts though." I said "I will work on her."
Mackenzie said and I smiled. I got out and I waved at Caylee who
looked up "Do you remember Caylee?" I asked and Mackenzie smiled
"Hi, were you doing yoga?" She asked "Yeah." Caylee said I could
feel the ice in her voice. "That's cool." She said "We're going
to get ice cream, do you want to come?" I asked hoping she would
agree "No thanks." She said "Okay I will be a minute." I said
leaving them and walking inside. Aunt Alice gave me some money
"Do you see Caylee out there?" Aunt Alice asked "Yeah." I said
"invite her." She said "I tried and she told me no." I said
"She's playing hard to get." Aunt Alice said and I smiled at her.
I went back out "Sorry I had to talk to Alice. Shall we go?" I
asked and Mackenzie smiled "Yeah. See you around." She told
Caylee who nodded at her.
Once we left Mackenzie looked at me "Ash, forget out her. She
isn't worth it." Mackenzie said. "Yes she is. She's worth it and
more." I said getting offensive over Caylee. "She doesn't like
you." Mackenzie said "She's in love with me." I said and she just
looked at me. After our ice cream she asked to be dropped off at
the beach and then I just went to the park and sat on the swing.
I wasn't sure if Caylee did like me or if she actually hated my
guts. I got home and Caylee was still outside, but this time she
was just laying in the grass. I slowly walked up the steps and
let Hoss out who ran to Caylee. I slowly walked over to Caylee
and I laid down next to her looking up at the stars not saying
anything. I wasn't about to speak because she would get startled
Caylee and Ashton's Pov:
Caylee heard Ashton pull up but didn't move, it was around
nine and her grandma wasn't home yet and neither was Liam. Ashton
walked up his steps and let Hoss out and then he walked over and
laid down next to her. They stared at the stars for a few minutes
and Caylee finally spoke "How was your date with Mackenzie?"
Caylee asked with ice in her voice "She wanted dropped off."
Ashton said "Why?" Caylee asked not looking at him, she was
rubbing Hoss though. "She knew I liked another girl." Ashton said
"Oh." Caylee said her heart breaking a little more. "She's a
lucky girl." Caylee said "She doesn't realize it though." Ashton
said "How come?" Caylee asked "She has this emotional wall up and
won't let me in." Ashton said "Oh." Caylee said "Caylee, I'm
asking you to let me in." Ashton said "I don't know." Caylee
admitted "Why don't you date anybody?" Ashton asked Caylee who
still wouldn't look up but she was rubbing Hoss softly. "I don't
want to get hurt. I'm not sure if I can love someone. I know that
if you love someone they will be taken away from you." Caylee
"I'm not a cheater, a liar, or a player Caylee." Ashton
said "Allie said." Caylee said realizing how childish she
sounded. "Allie is friends with my ex, who broke up with me for
another guy. But told everybody I cheated on her." Ashton said
"Everybody has baggage, it's called your past. You can let it run
your life or stay where it belongs." Ashton said and Caylee
finally rolled onto her side where she was staring at him "I'm
scared of getting hurt." Caylee said "You are a dancer." Ashton
said "Yes." Caylee said "Dancers can get hurt, correct?" Ashton
asked "They can." Caylee said "You love dance with a passion.
Life is like dance. You have to take risks Caylee." Ashton said
"You're right." Caylee admitted "Caylee, let's go out tomorrow. A
real date." Ashton said getting ahead of himself "You're right.
Okay." Caylee said smiling at Ashton. Caylee sat up and so did
Ashton and she hugged Ashton and she felt really close to him.
"Promise me something?" Ashton asked Caylee "What?" Caylee
asked "You won't get upset at me tomorrow." Ashton said and
Caylee giggled "I won't." Caylee said and Ashton got up and
helped Caylee. He wanted to kiss her lips but he knew it wasn't
the right time. Caylee was thinking the same thing but neither of
them voiced their opinions. "Do you want something to drink?"
Ashton asked "Yeah, anything." Caylee said and Ashton went inside
to get two sodas and Caylee stayed outside rubbing Hoss. Ashton
came back out with two glasses of Dr. Pepper and he handed one to
Caylee "I love Dr. Pepper." Caylee said and Ashton smiled "Can
dancers drink sodas?" Ashton asked "Depends on how strict your
instructor is." Caylee said and Ashton stared at Caylee with love
in his eyes and Caylee smiled at him. "I should head in." Caylee
said and Ashton nodded "I don't want you to go." Ashton said
"Why?" Caylee asked "I'm scared you will get upset." Ashton said
and Caylee laughed "You have to take risks." Caylee said "Ha-ha
very funny." Ashton said and Caylee smiled "See you." She said
walking away and Ashton watched her walk away wanting to call her
back and Caylee was hoping he would call her back.
