-Ashton's pov-

"Yeah. It's me. Ashton."

"Ashton. Ashton? Ashton! Mum!" I heard Lauren yell.

I heard muffled talking before I heard my mom on the phone.


"Hi mum. it's Ashton." I said

"Ahh! Ashton!" I heard her gasping. "hang on I'm going upstairs."

I felt really awkward and weird about this but I need to talk to them.

"Ashton. Ashton. How have you been?"

"I've been good mum." I said

"You should visit. I need to see my baby boy."

"Mom I'm nineteen." I said

"I know but you're almost twenty."

"I know mom--"

"Will you please visit us before the end of the year at least?"

"I will."

Now that I'm talking to them I'm starting to really miss them. I guess I just never knew it until you hear their voice.

"Maybe can you visit about 2 weeks after your birthday." she said.

"i'll have to see things first. But if I can go, can I bring girlfriend?"

"You have a girlfriend?!"

"Mom it's okay this time. We're okay." I reassured her.

I was technically reassuring myself too.

"I just don't want you to make that mistake again."

"It's fine mom." I groaned.

"Ok. Yes you can bring your girlfriend if you come."

"Ok mum, I'll see about it."

"Ok. I have to go now baby. I need to get to work but 9 and it's 8:30. I love you sunshine."

"I love you too mum." I said.

It's getting close to night here too. I'm going to talk to Stephanie tomorrow. I have to explain everything to her.


(Next day)

-Stephanie's pov-

Both of my sisters were gone for the night. I have nothing to do.

I think i'm just going to sit on the couch and watch TV all day.

I turned on the TV and saw that spongebob was on. I checked my phone and saw that it was already 8:00.

After about 20 minutes there was a knock on the door. But I'm only in sweatpants and a t shirt with no makeup. Eh oh well.

I turned off the tv and got up to get the door. When I opened the door I saw Ashton standing there. He was in a t shirt and sweatpants too.

"Hey." he said

"Hi." I said awkwardly. "You can come in. Just sit on the couch."

He came in and sat on the couch and I closed the door. I sat down on the other side of him.

"First things first, I'm sorry. I was just having a bad day and I was in a horrible mood and it just came out on you." He said

"It's fine I forgive you. But i'm sorry too. I shouldn't have asked you about your family. I know you--"
