Within three hours my mom saw the pictures and my phone was
ringing off the hook. After not answering for so long I finally
answered and she was mad as I don't know what "NICOLE HOPE
SUMMERLAND GET ERICA ON THE PHONE ALSO!" she screamed "Erica." I
said she came running in and knew who I was talking to "YOU TWO
DISOBEYED ME! I AM NOT HAVING TWO LITTLE DISOBENIDENT BRATS
LIVIING IN MY HOUSE. SO YOU TWO WILL SHAPE UP." She said and I
rolled my eyes "what if we don't?" I asked "then you will be
living with your father." She said "I don't think we will." "Put
your father on the phone." She said and we could hear her yelling
"Anyone up for a trip?" he asked us after he hung up I gave him a
weird look. "She just kicked you two out." He said and we smiled
at each other. "Can we spend like a week up there to say good-bye
to all of our friends?" I asked him and he smiled at me.
"I was thinking of maybe the week of your birthday?" he asked and
I hugged him. I got online and saw my best friend Sky was on so I
sent her an IM:
Colie: hey Sky!
Sky: hey, how can you be so hyper on today?
Colie: cause it's a celebrate of life! Next month I won't
Sky: True B.T.W who is that cute guy?
Sky: in your newest picture
Colie: Oh! Him? Blake
Sky: your Florida boyfriend?
Colie: currently no
Sky: ah! Friends with benefits?
Colie: I guess and Sky I got bad news : (
Sky: OH God what is it?
Colie: I'm moving to Florida with my daddy.
Sky: OH MY GOD! WHY?!
Colie: 'Cause Erica and I got our hair cut and dyed
Sky: cute hair style by the way!
Sky: but still why?
Colie: thanks and mainly cause we're tired of staying home
Sky: ah this sucks
Colie: I'm sorry Sky
Sky: gotta go bye.
I got offline and walked outside to meet Blake. "Hey Colie you
look cute." He said I was in my monkey PJ's and I had on a hot
pink cami and my hair was half up. "Thanks." I said and we sat
down on the swings "Colie who idea was it for you to be called
Colie since Nicole is your name? How do you get Colie out of
Nicole?" he asked me and I went back into my memories.
"Robbie and Nicole come here!" Momma yelled at us I was two and
four almost three and five it's June 30th. "Momma since Rob is my
nickname Nicole needs a nickname too." He stated wrapping his arm
around me "Fine if it makes you happy you pick it." she said
"Well fine I will." He said smiling at me and I smiled back.
"Cole." He said "Ni-Cole so take out the Ni and its Cole." He
said "Cole is a boy's nick name." momma said to him "but if we
add an I to it will be a girl names." He said smiling to me
"Alright so would it be then?" she asked us "Colie." He said
"Alright fine we will call her Colie from now on." She said and
he hugged me "see Colie is a cool name because you're big brother
Robbie picked it out." He said smiling at me. And Erica started
crying so we went in. Daddy was home and Robbie went up to him
and we hugged him. "Daddy, Nicole has a nickname." He said
"Alright boy let me hear it?" he asked smiling "Colie." He said
beaming so was I. "That's a pretty name. Prettier than Nikki. Who
picked it out?" daddy asked "Robbie did." I said smiling beaming
at my big brother. "Alright kiddos go and play. Robbie keep an
eye on Colie will you?" he asked him and he nodded.
*goes back to reality*
"Colie are you alright?" Blake asked me I must have zoned off on
him again. "Yeah I'm alright." I said "are you gonna tell me?" he
asked me "Robbie picked out Colie when I was two and he was four
we were about to turn three and two because our birthdays were
coming up. He first said Cole Ni-Cole but then momma said Cole is
a boy name so he said "add the I since it's in Ni so Colie is how
I got it." I said and he smiled at me and kissed my lips. "Are
you moving down here?" he asked me "yeah we're going up the week
of the 15th." I said he smiled "you're sweet sixteen." He said I
smiled "will you be my girlfriend?" he asked me and I smiled "I
would love to be your girlfriend. I thought we were already." I
said and he smiled "I should have asked a long time ago but I
didn't want to if you were going back to North Carolina August
18th and now you're not." He said smiling at me so I kissed him
on the lips and that shut him up really quickly too.
It's August 1st and the dreams of us moving in here was crushed
by our mother. "I changed my mind you two are moving back home
with me." She said I rolled my eyes "Fine mother." I said
bitterly hanging up on her. Daddy looked at me he could tell I
was mad "What was that all about?" he asked me "We're staying up
there, she called and said so." I said daddy rolled his eyes and
he hugged us as we came up to him. "It's alright girls. I'm here
for you." He said I smiled "will we be able to come for Christmas
break?" I asked "sure I do have you for that this year." He said
and I smiled "great." They're getting married September 3rd but
we have to miss it since we're going home on the 18th.
I see Blake outside and I smile at him we sit on the swing "what
do you want to do after high school?" I asked him "go into the
Army what about you?" he asked me "study to become a lawyer and
be a lawyer." I said and he smiled "Well I be." He said and I
smiled at him but then my smile faded "Colie what's wrong?" he
asked me "my mom is making us stay with her instead." I said he
went white as well. "Well when will I see you again?" he asked me
softly "Christmas break and Summer." I said he bent his head
"that's not soon enough." He said I gave him a weak smile "I will
understand if you wanna break up with me." I said and he smiled
and kissed my lips "Colie I love you too much to do that we will
make this work out." He said and I smiled "your dad will try to
get custody of you girls. He promises he will try his best." He
said and I believed him right now.
"Want to go to a baseball game?" he asked and my face went really
pale and my mind went wandering again "Colie are you sure you
want to go with me?" Robbie asked "Yeah!" I had answered so many
times. "No I'm good." I whispered and he smiled "alright well I
have a baseball game to attend. So I will talk to you when I get
home." He said I smiled and walked inside. Daddy was watching
"are you two staying a couple?" he asked "yes sure we're gonna
make this work." I said and he smiled at me "that's good. You got
Christmas break and Spring break if nothing else works and then
summer break again." He said and I smiled "daddy please try to
get custody of us." I said "oh baby I'm trying everyday I am.
Trust me I want you two just as much as you want to live here
with me." He said "Daddy I don't wanna go back to having to cook
and be alone with just Erica. I mean you work but you come home
and you bring Karen over for dinner and Savannah and Blake but
not a different person every night. Daddy please don't make us
live there for long. Oh daddy pleases!"
Today is now my Sweet 16 birthday the first birthday without
Robbie being here. "Happy Birthday Sissy, I love you I'm here
with you I'm in your heart. I'm wherever you go." My voice in my
head said and I smiled at myself. I found my blue jeans shorts
and my pink longer shirt that is strapless and wore my hair down
and had my rainbows on. My make up was done super pretty and I
loved how it looked and everything else about me looked good for
my Sweet 16. Teen pregnancy runs in the family so I might become
one today "NO you're not." the voice in my head said so I smiled
at myself. I got online quickly nobody knows I'm up though so I'm
