*One month later*


I've been back home for a month now and I'm back to my regular old routine. I go to school, then work, then I come home. When I got in my house, I was greeted by Bailey and I flopped on the couch. After just laying there for a while, my phone rang. It was my cousin Myron.

Me: Hello?

Myron: Hey cuz!

Me: Hey what's up?

Myron: Are you doing anything tonight?

Me: Nope

Myron: I know this is last minute but can you babysit tonight?

Me: Of course! Just bring them over whenever.

Myron: Alright thanks!

Me: No problem

I hung up and went in my room. I love babysitting Myron's kids. They were my favorite little cousins. I took a shower because I was extra stressed today. I had spent a good hour in there before getting out. I put on sweatpants and a wife beater. I opened my laptop to do homework but the doorbell rang. I ran to open the door and saw Myron and his kids, Emily & Daniel, standing there.

"Thank you again," he said handing me Daniel and his bag.

"It's no problem," I said.

I closed the door and carried them to my room. I turned the tv on for Emily to watch SpongeBob. I sat in the chair at my desk holding Daniel, when I got a Skype call from Blake.

"Hey!" he said. He looked and sounded really excited.


"Who's the little one?"

"My cousin Daniel."

"Hi Daniel!"

Daniel started giggling and it was the cutest thing.

"And who's that?" he said pointing behind me.

"That's his sister Emily," I said.

"Hi Emily!"


There was a lot of noise coming from his end.

"Sounds like you have company. Maybe you should go entertain them," I suggested.

"Nah, that's alright. They actually wanna talk to you," he said. I raised my eyebrow as he turned the computer and then I saw DJ & Monique on the screen.


"Heeey! I miss all of yall so much!"

I noticed Monique was dancing around in circles and she was stumbling all over the place. I couldn't help but laugh because I knew what was wrong with her.

"Have yall been drinking?" I asked laughing a little.

"They have."

I watched as DJ and Monique slow danced in Blake's living room to no music. They're so funny when they're drunk.

"Don't let her drink no more or you're gonna have to take care of her all night," I said.

He chuckled a little, "okay."

We both got quiet and kinda just stared at each other.

"Sooo," Blake started, "are you seeing anyone?"

•in my head•

I was waiting for that.

"Nope," I said holding my head down slightly, "are you?"


When I looked up, he was smiling. Seeing him smile ways made me smile. Damn, I didn't realize how much I missed him until now. Before I could say anything else, I noticed Daniel's head was drooping. Then I felt Emily put her head on my shoulder.

"Hey Blake, I gotta go put the kids to bed."

"Alright babe, I'll talk to you later," he said. I don't know why, but that sounded so sexy.

"Okay bye."

I closed my laptop and got the kids in their pajamas. I let them sleep in my bed while I debated on whether to sleep on the floor or in another room. I decided to just sleep on the floor so I could keep an eye on them. I lied there thinking about how much I wanted to go back to California. As much as I missed all my family and friends here, I love it out there.

I can't wait to go back.
