"I begin classes the 16th." I said it was later that day on my birthday, I was talking to Allie we were in her guest house which is my house. "I do too. Do you have the day care worked out?" Allie asked "I do. I appreciate your mom watching the girls while I'm at work." I said and Allie smiled at me "We love you. We wish we would have known." Allie said "You tried. You're doing what you can now." I said and Allie smiled "I should have old my mom in sixth grade." I said and Allie nodded "You didn't want to betray my trust." I said "I wish." Allie said "You're doing the right thing now. Bella and I are in one piece, I may have a cute little almost one year old." I said and Allie smiled at me "Has your mom tried contacting you?" Allie asked "Nope." I said and Allie nodded "We need to go school shopping then." Allie said and I nodded, Bella came in at that "Hey sissy!" Bella said "Bells, you ready for school shopping?" I asked "Yes!" She said "Let me see if Kels is up." I said and I got up and peeked in on my baby girl, "Mommy's girl!" I said and Kels smiled at me "Ready to go somewhere?" I asked and Kelsey smiled at me. I got her diaper bag ready and then got Kelsey up and she walked to Bella, she started walking in the end of July. I picked Kelsey up and put her in her car seat "College first?" I asked and Allie nodded, I have a fullscholarshipto the Keiser University for nursing and so does Allie. We pulled up to the student-parking lot and I got Kelsey and placed her on my hip and Bella walked between Allie and myself.
Inside the book store I see a cute muscular tan guy, with dark brown hair and hazel eyes, he had a name tame that said Austin "How may I help you?" Austin asked "We're looking for some books." I said balancing Kelsey on my hip "Do you have a list?" Austin asked me "We do. Same list." I said and Allie gave it to him "Right this way." He said and he found all the books we needed "Thank you." I said and he smiled at me "Your daughter is beautiful." He said "Thank you." I said "Say hi." I said and Kelsey waved at him and he smiled "You are so beautiful, just like your mommy." He said and I smiled "Thank you." I said and we gave him the money and he smiled, he wrote something on the recipet "Call me sometime?" He asked "Okay." I said "Good luck in school." He said "Thank you." I said and once we got in the call Allie smiled at me "You just got hit on." Allie said and I giggled "I did, didn't I?" I asked "Uh-oh Lex!" Bella said and I smiled at Bella. We went to wal*mart and I put Kelsey in the buggy and she was playing with her toy and we got the scubs, and then Bella some school clothes, and then we got the backpack for us, and school supplies Bella is going to need, she is in the first grade now. We paid the bill and then we went home and after we unloaded the car Allie smiled at her mom who took Kelsey and Bella into their house "Call." Allie said and I dialed on my phone. I make $1200 every two weeks, rent is: $500 which inclues all the bills, I owe day care $200 a month and then my cell phone bill is $75 a month. "Hello?" Austin's voice said "Hi, it's Lexie." I said "I didn't think you would call." He said "I did." I said and he laughed "Do you want to go out sometime?" Austin asked "I can't date that much. I take care of my sister and daughter." I said and Allie wrote down: Ask him for dinner tonight. "Would you like to come over here for dinner instead?" I asked "Sure." He said and I gave him my address.
"I need to take a shower and get ready." I said and Allie smiled "We can keep the girls here." Allie said "You don't mind?" I asked "Not at all." Allie said smiling at me, I went into the shower after Allie left and after I showered and dried off I put on my favorite bra and thong set and then I put on my sundress and then cowboy boots, I curled my knee length hair and then applied make up and then I cooked Shrimp Alfredo, and garlic bread. Austin arrived on time around six, he came in with flowers and chocolate "Thank you." I said and Austin smiled at me "Come in. Dinner is done actually." I said and I led him to the table after I put flowers in the vase. "How long have you been here?" Austin asked "Since June." I said "Where are you from?" Austin asked me "I'm from Raleigh, North Carolina." I said "Long ways." He said "It is." I said "How old are you?" I asked "nineteen, you?" Austin asked "Eighteen." I said "Are you into sports?" I asked "All kinds, you?" He asked "I am." I said and he smiled at me, I learned that he has four siblings two brothers and two sisters, his parents are together and his dad runs the book store so he works there, he's in school to be a history teacher. He loves that I'm in school to be a nurse. "I would love to meet Bella and Kelsey." Austin said "I can go get them." I said and he smiled I went over to Allie's and picked up Kelsey and Bella followed, "Bella and Kels this is Austin." I said "Hi,." Bella said holding Kelsey's hand, she's very protective over Kelsey.
We ended up playing a movie for the girls and watching it together, Bella was asking him questions and he answered them. I walked Austin to the door and I kissed him on the cheek good-night. After he left Allie came over and helped me give Bella and Kelsey a bath and I tucked them in. "How was it?" Allie asked "Good. I like him so far, he likes me, Bella and Kelsey seem to like him and he's good with them." I said "That is all that should matter." Allie said and I smiled at her. When Allie left I looked at my schedule, I have five classes and they begin from 7 and ends at 3, and then I will work from 3:30-10:30 every day, Allie's mom will pick the girls up for me from school and day care and watch them until I get home or Allie will watch them over at my house. I crawled into my bed after checking on Bella and Kelsey and I let my thought wander, I don't have to worry about getting beaten, Bella doesn't have to worry about it. I slept until six and then I got up and got dressed in my scrubs and I pulled my hair up. Allie's mom came over and smiled at me "I get off at four." I said "Okay thank you." Karen said and I smiled "I appreciate you doing this." I said "The girls love me." Karen said and I smiled at her.
"Good morning Lexie!" The head nurse Anna said "Good morning." I said I have the not so good job, cleaning the bed pans, giving people baths, help esscort them places. I went to my favorite person first "Good morning Alice. How can I assist you today?" I asked "Good morning darling. I need a bath." She said "Alright come on." I said walking to her and helped her to the little bathroom and then I washed her and changed her and then helped her back to her bed. "You are a kind woman." She said "Thank you." I said "How is your daughter and sister?" Alice asked me "They are good. Bella begins school in a few weeks." I said and she smiled at me "lovely." Alice said and I smiled at her and then I went back to doing my job. I took my break around noon and called Allie "Kelsey and Bella are good. Mom has them out in the pool." Allie said "Good, I'm gald they're having fun." I said and then we hung up and I took a breath and then I went back in and finished my work, today I had to do the vital checking of them and then at three I clocked out and went back to my car. My phone started buzzing and I checked it, Austin was calling me "Hey." I said "Hey, can I come by and pick up you and the girls around four thirty?" Austin asked me "Sure." I said and he we hung up.
I got home and then I changed into my denim shorts and a tank top and I left my hair down, I got Kelsey dressed into something cute. "Where are we going?" Bella asked "Out with Austin." I said smiling at her, I was braiding her hair "oh." Bella said "Do you like him?" I asked "yeah." Bella said "Don't worry Bells. It won't be like it was with mom." I said and Bella hugged me and I smiled at her "I love you Bells." I said "I love you too." Bella said and we heard a knock I went to the door and Austin smiled, "I need Kelsey's car seat." I said and he nodded he got her diaper bag for me and lifted up Kelsey and she giggled, we went to the car and I got Kelsey's car seat out and he put it in and Bella slid in and smiled at me. "Where are we going?" I asked "A picnic on the beach." He said "Uh-oh." I said and he smiled, when we got there the girls were so excited "No!" Kelsey said when I tried to pick her up and she went to Austin instead. I giggled "Mommy's hurt." I said and Kelsey clung to Austin, Bella clung to Austin too and giggled. I helped with the pinic basket, and then Kelsey's diaper bag. We set up camp and he gave Bella a bucket and they went to working on a sand castle, Kelsey was just playing in the sand.
Once the food was all set up I washed their hands with baby wipes and we ate dinner, Kelsey had small food and baby food, Bella loved her sandwich "This is really good." I said and Austin smiled at me. After dinner we packed up and Austin ran it to the car and then came back, we walked in the water line and Austin let Kelsey down and he held her hand and she giggled at the water when it hit her. Bella was having fun in the water too, "Do you work tomorrow?" Austin asked "I do." I said "What time?" He asked "Same time as today." I said and he smiled at me. We walked a little bit more and then we loaded up the girls and Austin took us to the park and we let them play, Kelsey was playing with the small toy sets they had. "They really do like you." I said "I like them and I like their mommy." Austin said and I hugged him "I like you too." I said and Austin smiled at me. We went to get ice cream instead of home and they were enjoying it "You need to come around more often." Bella said "I plan on it. I plan on being here for awhile." Austin said "Promise? You can't break a promise to a little girl." Bella said "I promise." Austin said and I smiled at him. When we got back home I let the girls in and then actually kissed Austin good-night.
