She picked up on the third ring.

"Hello?" Her voice sounded almost robotic through the phone.

"Hey, mum," I say, smiling. It's been a while since I've talked to mum properly.

"Hello, Kaia, darling," she says. "How are you?"

"I'm great, how're you?" I ask.

"I'm good now that you've called," I smile at her comment.

"I was just calling to ask," I begin. "Do you have my passport at home?"

After a moment of hesitation, mum replies, "I believe I do, in the cabinet cabinet next to the fridge, maybe. I'll have a look for it. But may I ask, why?"

"Oh, um," I start to stutter, trying to think of an answer. "I'm going to America, with a... A friend."

My parents don't know about Louis. I don't find it particularly easy to tell my parents when I have a boyfriend, even more so, considering he's famous. My parents aren't really up to date with the media either, so they don't know any rumours about me or haven't seen me in the news.

"Oh really?" She asks. "When did you find this out?"

"Only today," I say. "My friend is going to visit family and, um, wanted me for company."

(Technically that isn't a lie).

"Alright," mum says. "Drop by later and I'll have your passport for you?"

"OK," I say. "Thanks, mum."

"Anytime, Kaia Bear," she says.

"Bye."

"Bye."

And the line went dead.

Louis

Driving home, I felt like a million dollars.

Part of me thought she wouldn't say yes.

But I really wanted her to come. I feel like things are getting pretty serious with Kaia and I and I feel like it wouldn't be real unless she meets Freddie.

I was so happy when she said yes.

I almost didn't see Liam and Niall when I walked in through the front door.

"Hey Louis," Niall's voice scared me out of my victory walk.

"AAH!" I screamed. "Niall, mate, you scared me."

"I was right in front of you," Niall says, confused.

"He was distracted," Liam says. "I'm guessing she said yes?"

"Yeah," I smirk.

"Nice, mate," Niall high fives me.

"Next week, we'll be in California," I say, smiling at the thought.

"How does she feel about it?" Liam asks.

"I think she was hesitant at first but she's excited now," I reply.

"Understandable," Liam says.

"I can't wait," I say.

"You guys will have fun," Niall says.

"Bet you'd like to be jetting off to California with Lia, huh, Niall?" Liam says, nudging Niall with his elbow.

"What?" I ask, confused.

"Liam!" Niall cries.

"Oops, sorry," Liam apologizes.

"I'm confused," I say.
