It's the following morning and I'm downstairs with Maddie.
Sophia and Jason are coming home today so I'm excited about that!
Lauren came down with Hope. "Good morning, beautiful!" Lauren
said "Good morning." I said and she smiled at me "How are you
feeling?" Lauren asked me "I'm okay." I said and Lauren looked at
me sitting down "How are you really?" Lauren asked me, I knew she
wouldn't believe me at all. "Not so good. I don't want to spend
this summer fighting with Ashton like last summer." I said "Then
tell him that." Lauren said "He's already gone and I'm not so
sure I want to be with a guy who will turn out just like his
mother." I said "Cay, do you love him?" Lauren asked me "More
than anything in the world." I said "Then fight for him." Lauren
said "It's not that simple." I said "Yes it is, you make it not
that simple." Lauren said and I just rolled my eyes at her.
Sophia and Jason showed up around nine this morning and
Sophia looked at me instantly "What's wrong?" Sophia asked me
"Nothing is." I said "Caylee Marie." Sophia said "Ashton and I
got into a major fight." I said "If you love him then fight for
him." Sophia said and then once Maddie laid eyes on Sophia she
started crying "Mommy got you." Sophia said "I'm going to go to
the dance studio if I'm free?" I asked "You are. Again thank you
so much. You don't know how much this meant to me." Sophia said
"You are welcome. Bye Jason." I said "Be good sissy." Jason said
and I flashed him my smile, he's twenty-three now, I will be
nineteen and Liam is now seventeen years old.
I arrive at the dance studios and one is open and so I go up
to Anna "Is that room free?" I asked "Of course. By all means."
Anna said and I nodded, I warmed up to some Ed Sheeran song and
then I turned the music to hip-hop and I started dancing slowly.
I just needed to dance to get my mind off of things. During one
song I get a text so I go over to look: Ashton: I made it. Just
in case you wanted to know. I knew Lauren would want me to text
back but I just wasn't sure what to say to him. Because what do I
say to him? Do I say I overeacted and I'm sorry? Olivia came in
before I could respond back "Would you mind helping me on a
dance?" Olivia asked "Okay." I said and after I helped her she
stared at me "What's wrong?" Olivia asked me "Nothing is wrong.
I'm fine." I said and she smiled at me.
I woke up early for my flight and even though I wanted to text
Caylee I knew she would still be mad at me. I let Hoss out and
then I told Aunt Alice and Uncle Carl good-bye since they were
the only ones up at this time and they promised to tell everybody
I said good-bye. "Have fun Ashton." Aunt Alice said "I will. I
love you." I said "I love you too." Aunt Alice said and I smiled
at them and I took my bag to the car. I was not looking forward
to a week at my dad's, a week with Tyler's bad attitude. I went
to the front desk and they took my suitcase and I gave them my
license and then I was given my ticket. I knew I didn't want to
talk to anybody on the plane so I put my earbuds in and I blasted
my music during the trip that I was able to because I was tired
of listening to people.
The whole gang was there when I got to the baggage claim, Hope
ran into my arms "I missed you Ash!" Hope said and that made me
smile "I missed you too." I said "How was the flight son?" My dad
asked "It was good. Very long." I said "Well we're going to see
Sarah's mom. Hope you are up for it." My dad said "Sure." I said
and I quickly texted Caylee to let her know I made it, I knew she
wouldn't reply back because she was still upset. "How are things
with you and Caylee?" My dad asked me "things are going good." I
said "That's good. We really do like Caylee." My dad said "Good.
I like her too." I said I did not want to talk about Caylee, it
reminded me of the stupid mistake I made and how it could have
costed me the girl of dreams.
After a very long and boring day at Sarah's mom since I wasn't
her grandson we were going to the house finally. "Ashton, you're
not yourself." Tyler said "Oh really?" I asked I wasn't in the
mood for his smart comments today I knew I would snap. "Yeah,
what's going on?" He asked, uh-oh is Tyler growing up? "Nothing,
just some girl issues." I said " " "Don't screw it up with
Caylee. She's a keeper." Was all Tyler said and that left me in
complete shock because Tyler is normally not like that towards
me, he normally does a smart comment about it. My dad came in
once I got settled in kind of "You coming here this week has
really meant a lot to us. I'm glad I get to see you before you
head off to Columbia." My dad said "Thanks dad." I said "I'm
proud of you. I know I wasn't there for you. I'm trying to make
up for that now. You can always come to me for anything." My dad
said "I got buzzed, I didn't think it through and Caylee and I
had a fight." I said I know I blurted it out. "Make things right
son." He said and I nodded.
Ashton's and Caylee's Pov:
It's Eleven o'clock Eastern time and it's eight o'clock
Pacific time, Caylee is in her room with her Ipod plugged in
listening to metal music to calm her nerves. Ashton is in his
room listening to rock to try to calm his nerves. Caylee glances
at her phone and picks it up to call him but she decides against
it. Ashton looked at his phone and he tried calling but he
couldn't go through with it. Ashton finally did at eight twenty.
The phone rang for a minute and Ashton figured Caylee wasn't
going to answer. "Hello?" Caylee asked "Hey Caylee." Ashton said
softly "I'm sorry." Ashton and Caylee said at the same time "What
you did was wrong, I admit that. But I will admit that I did
overreact." Caylee said "I'm sorry, I shouldn't have done that."
"I do love you baby. I do want us to work out. I'm sorry
about Anderson punching you in the face. I did not tell Anderson
to do that. Trust me, I was upset when he did it." Caylee said "I
shouldn't have gotten buzzed. I deserve it." Ashton said "Can you
promise me something?" Caylee asked "Anything for you." Ashton
said "NO more drugs." Caylee said "NO more drugs. I promise."
Ashton said "I don't want to lose you." Ashton said "You won't
lose me if you act properly." Caylee said "I will. I can't wait
to see you when I come home." Ashton said "I will see you soon."
Caylee said "Enjoy yourself baby. Have fun. I love you." Caylee
said "I love you too." Ashton said and they hung up.
Ashton and I made up, I will admit I wasn't going to answer
his call but I knew everybody wouldn't want me to be in a bad
mood all week. Ashton comes home in six days! I went to bed in a
better mood than I had planned on but it still feels good. I mean
it's June 18th, we leave for New York August 5th, that isn't that
long away. It's only about seven weeks away, I have seven weeks
left with Sam and Sassy. Seven weeks left with Maddie and Hope.
Seven weeks left of my summer before I begin on my dancing
school. I was going to try to make it big, I'm going to make
these next few weeks last.
On Tuesday it was a family day including Lauren and them. We
had a cook out with all of the family members at the beach, Riley
wouldn't leave my side. Aunt Penny is hoping for a baby boy since
Uncle Ryan wants a baby boy. After the cook out I confessed to
Lauren and Sophia that Ashton and I made up so things are going
good between us now. Wednesday, I hung out with the girls at the
spa for a spa day while the boys watched the girls for them.
Chelsea came too, this is the week that Caleb and Connor are in
New York and so she has time for friends now. Thursday we went
shopping, yes shopping with the three babies. Friday we went to
the beach with the kids, then we went to Lucky's and then we went
to the movies, Saturday we hung out around the house at the pool,
I was working on my tan so I could be darker than what I am.
Sunday, is the day that Ashton comes home so I'm getting ready to
Tuesday we hung around the house, but it was good. We spent
the day at the pool and then we had a cook out. Wednesday we went
fishing just us guys and it turned out really good, Tyler didn't
give any idea. After we went fishing and we had dinner, Tyler and
I played basketball and then we stayed up all night playing video
games. Thursday, we went to the zoo as a family and we enjoyed
it, after the Zoo we went to some seafood place which was really
good I remember Caylee talking about this all the time. Friday,
my dad and Sarah had to go into work so I was baby-sitting the
girls and we went to the beach to enjoy the day. Saturday we
spent it with the family, having a huge cook out with all of the
family was really good.
Caylee's and Ashton's Pov:
Ashton arrived at the houses around noon and Caylee met him
outside. Caylee didn't really give him time to come outside,
Caylee kissed his lips softly. "I missed you baby." Ashton said
when he could speak "I missed you too. How was your trip?" Caylee
asked "It was really good baby. But it would have been better if
you were there." Ashton said "Aw baby. I'm glad you had a good
week though." Caylee said and Ashton smiled at her, it was now
June 23rd now, Ashton will be nineteen July 15th, Lauren is
nineteen now as of June 15th. "You need to go spend time with
your family now. We will hang out later. I love you." Caylee said
"I love you too." Ashton said and he kissed her lips softly.
