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." Ashton said.
"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 see him.
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.
