Caylee's Pov:
It's November 19th and I'm on my way to the airport. Ashton isn't riding with me. I don't even know when his plane leaves. I was serious when I told Ashton last month to never talk to me again.He has tried, he has called, texted, emailed, came to the dorm room but I refuse to see him. I'm not myself either. I'm focusing only on dance. My grades are still perfect, by a miracle. But I'm eating enough to keep going, I'm not hanging out with friends, I'm not shopping or anything. I"m just focusing on dance. Evan doesn't try anything, he has a new girlfriend already but he does give me a sly grin. I won't talk to any of my family or friends about this because I know they won't understand. But Ashton called Jason that night so now he's all worried. I'm not wearing the promise ring or the necklace Ashton gave me anymore, it's in a box. 
I arrive at the airport and I get my boarding pass and I go to find my gate. It's cold in New York now, so I have on my jeans, my leather boots, a white long sleeve shirt and a jacket with my hair down. I sit down and I pull my headphones out and I start listening to music. I did get my period, so my biggest fear didn't happen. I won't tell any of my family this but I'm seriously thinking of dropping out of school after this year. Dance just isn't the same anymore, I can't go into the soundproof session without having memories. I haven't had a good night sleep since that night. I'm lucky if I get two hours a night. I follow the crowd onto the plane and I find my seat. It's a window seat. I keep my headphones on until I get told to power them down and then I stare out the window. I don't even pay attention to who's next to me. 
I land in West Palm around eight pm. I get my duffel bag and I see Lauren, Anderson, and Hope waiting for me. Lauren has the biggest smile on her face, like I haven't blown her off in the past month. "Hey." I said "Hey! How was your flight?" Lauren asked, Anderson took my bag and then we started walking. "Do you want to stay with us or Jason?" Lauren asked "You guys? I will still visit them, but I want to be with Sam and Sassy." I said and Lauren smiled at me. "How is your semester going?" I asked trying not to sound too cold "It was good. It's busy. With classes, work, and Hope." Lauren said "I bet. Hope is still just as beautiful." I said "She's a handful." Lauren said and I smiled, Hope is now eight months old. "But you gotta love her." I said "Yeah you do." Lauren said smiling at me.
When we arrived home I carried Hope in who loved it. Lauren took her to get her ready for bed and Sam and Sassy were all up on me. "I missed you girls too." I said Sam was licking my face and Sassy was purring. Anderson sat down "I figured Ashton would have came on the same flight with you." He said "We decided not to take the same flight." I said "Oh, I'm sorry." Anderson said. I knew he was friends with Ashton, so I knew he knew the answer to this. Lauren came in "So Anderson, go to bed. Let us have some girl time." Lauren said "Goodnight baby. I love you." Anderson said "I love you too." Lauren said kissing his lips softly. "Care to go on the porch and talk?" Lauren asked me "Sure." I said and when we sat down I had my knees pulled up to my chest "How are you really?" Lauren asked me, I knew she could see through me even when I lied "I'm fine. School is just very stressful." I said "I understand." Lauren said.
Ashton's Pov:
Caylee wasn't kidding, she wants nothing to do with me. I screwed up big time with her. It's November 19th and I was smart enough to get an earlier flight than Caylee did. I have tried calling, texting, emailing, going to her dorm room and she refuses to talk to me. I'm not bothering to mess with Evan, that's on him. I'm slowly starting to realize that things with Caylee are coming to an end. I have done everything I can, and now it's on her. My grades haven't suffered from this yet, but I know if I keep stressing about it then I will. But I haven't noticed all of the girls who have been hitting on me until now. I'm sure Caylee can find a guy who won't screw things up with her. But I'm still giving her until the winter break and if nothing changes then I will move on.
I go to the airport and I get my boarding pass and then I go to my gate. I have my headphones going and I'm not paying attention to any of my surroundings until I get told to power down my phone. Once I was able to I turned my phone back on and I kept my rock music playing until the end of the flight. Both flights were good. I couldn't focus on anything, I honestly couldn't tell you who were sitting next to me. I got off the plane and I saw Uncle Carl there. "Hey son." He said "Hello."  I said "How was your flight?" He asked me "It was good. They were both good." I said and Uncle Carl nodded "Where's Cay? I figured she would be on the plane with you." Uncle Carl said "She had to catch a later flight." I  said "Oh okay. Well let's head home. Hoss and the girls miss you." Uncle Carl said and I smiled at him.
When we showed up Hoss almost knocked me down, he was licking my face. "I missed you too boy." I said it was 6:30 so the girls were still up. "Ashy-poo!" Abrianna and Lindsay said "I missed you!"  I said spinning both of them around. "You here for good?" Lindsay asked me, "No. Just for a few days." I said "Oh." Abrianna said and I kissed her cheek. Savannah came down, "How are you feeling?" I asked "Good. Glad to see you're cast is off." Savannah sad and I smiled, she still had a different knee brace on. "Can you dance yet?" I asked "Still going to rehab after school. I can put more pressure on it." Savannah said "You know, it feels good to be back." I said "It does. But no midnight run." Savannah  said "Deal." I said and Uncle Carl took my bag upstairs for me.
"Where's Cay?" Aunt Alice asked "She got tied up in class and had to take the later flight." I said, I hate lying to them but nobody knows about what happened. I called Jason. "Oh, Sophia said she's staying with Lauren." Aunt Alice said "Probably to spend more time with Lauren this time." I said "That could be." Aunt Alice said I knew she could tell something happened. "How is school?" She asked me "School is great. I'm doing good. I'm working out more." I said and she smiled at me "You know college can take a toll on a relationship." She said "Yeah I know. But things are fine." I said and Aunt Alice just nodded. "Alright, I just don't want to see you or Caylee get hurt." She said, too late for that. "I know, I feel the same way." I said "She makes you happy, the happiest I have seen you in years." Aunt Alice said and that part actually hurt, it stung a little.
Caylee's Pov:
I couldn't sleep at all, I got up at five am and I got Sam ready after I changed into shorts and a tshirt with my hair pulled up in a bun. Sam and I went on our normal jog around the beach. "I have missed this so much." I said as I was rubbing her. I came home and changed into shorts and a T-shirt to me it was still warm. Lauren and Anderson were up. "Hey, I know it's last minute but can you baby-sit Hope today?" Lauren asked "Of course!" I said "Thanks, I work 7-3 today. Anderson works 7-5." Lauren  said "That's fine. I'm going to go to Sophia's but I know she won't mind if Hope comes." I said and she smiled at me "Thank you. How did you sleep?" Lauren asked me "I slept good." I said and Lauren smiled at me. 
Hope and I were heading up the street around eight am. I saw Ashton and Hoss in the yard. Today is Thanksgiving, Lauren was supposed to be off but somebody called out in the last minute and she had to go in. I open up the gate and I push the stroller to the front porch. I didn't stare at Ashton, I didn't even glance his way but I could feel his eyes on me. I got the diaper bag on my shoulder and I placed Hope on my hip. I walked up the steps and I knocked "Hey!" Sophia said "Hi!" I said walking in "I figured you would want to spend time with Ashton." Sophia said "No, I missed you. I missed Maddie." I said and Sophia smiled at me. I put Hope down and she started crawling to Maddie. Maddie was watching a TV show. "How's school?" Sophia asked "School is great." I said "Are you ready for the big Broadway show?" Sophia asked me "Yeah." I said and she smiled at me.
Ashton's Pov:
After waking up at five I took Hoss for a jog and then I changed. Uncle Carl and Aunt Alice had to run to the store to get some last minute food for today. I'm outside in the yard with Hoss and I see Caylee walking up with Hope. She was wearing shorts and a t-shirt. She didn't glance my way, she didn't look at me. But I couldn't take my eyes off of her. She looks thin, she looks different. I wanted to speak to her, I wanted to say something. But I couldn't do it, I knew she didn't want nothing to do with me. I held Hoss back from going to her because I knew he wouldn't want to leave her side. I watch as she goes inside and then I slowly get up and go inside to see if the girls are up. I want to fix things with Caylee somehow. I found out that we are having dinner with them tonight.
Abrianna and Lindsay both came down at the same time, they turned three on November 15th. They both crawled in my lap, Savannah came down "Mom wants to make sure the yard is clean." She said "It is." I said "Are you sure things are okay? I saw Caylee walk by and she didn't speak to you." Savannah said "Things are okay. She was excited to see Maddie and Sophia." I said "Oh yeah." Savannah said and I smiled at her "Savannah, don't worry your pretty little head." I said and she smiled at me "I'm glad you are home." Savannah said "Good. I missed you too." I said "I didn't say I missed you." Savannah said "Careful." I said flashing her a smile and she smiled at me. "Let's make breakfast." Savannah said "I have it." I said and she smiled at me.
