"Come on," I tell him running off to climb up the ladder to the first tower of the play gym. I look over and see him standing at the bottom just staring at me.

"Isn't this thing for kids? I thought adults aren't allowed up there?" he asks looking around at all the other few parental figures sitting on the nearby benches.

"Well it's a good thing I'm still a teenager then, huh?" I ask rhetorically. He doesn't budge. I groan, "Come on, you have to be a kid once in a while or you'll spend the rest of your life wishing you were."

He rolls his eyes but grabs onto the wooden planks of the ladder, climbing up to meet me.

"Now that wasn't so bad, was it?" I ask with a fake pout. He rolls his eyes and stands next to me. I look over at Maddie and see her climbing on the mini rock wall with two other kids.

"So, what do you want in life?" He asks randomly and I stare at him confused.


"Isn't this the moment we have a whole chat on what we want for our future, our high hopes in life when we're older?" He asks laughing with me.

"Had to have high, high hopes for a living. Shooting for the stars when I couldn't make a killing," I couldnt help but mumble the lyrics to High Hopes by Panic! At The Disco after he said that.

"Didn't have a dime but I always had a vision. Always had high, high hopes," he quietly speaks the rest of the lyrics and my head snaps to him. He doesn't realize for a few seconds that I am shocked into silence. He looks over and raises an eyebrow.

"You like Panic! At The Disco?" I asked my smile getting bigger. He nods his head slightly. "That is awesome that you finished off the lyrics, people never do that, except for Liv if she knows the song," I ramble.

"I have an older sister who visits a lot and when she's at the house she always blaring her music, and she did that when she was younger too so I could sing A Thousand Miles off by heart," he shrugs chuckling.

"I would pay to see that," I laugh just imagining the scene unfold in my head.

"I'll even let my niece choreograph a routine for it," he suggests.

"Yes! I am totally in," I look out over the fields to the skate park where Tessa is busy kicking ass at showing off her skateboarding skills, Nathan notices my attention has been pulled and he looks in the same direction.

"Damn, your sister is really good," Nathan whistles lowly.

I nod my head in agreement, "Yeah, she's the sporty one in the family, she can do anything," I praise my younger sister.

"I thought Seb would have been the 'sporty one'?" He looks over at Sebastian who has taken it upon himself to challenge Tessa. I shake my head lightly, he's going to get his ass kicked.

"No, Seb is just the one who is obsessed with looking like the sporty one," I roll my eyes, "We all have our quirks, you know? Harry is the genius who was swim team captain for his junior and senior year in high school; Sebastian is the baseball player; Sophie is the cheerleader who doesn't really want to be the cheerleader; Tessa just does everything you tell her she can't; and Maddie is our little princess ninja, she just got her yellow belt in karate a few weeks ago," I finish off with a fond smile thinking of all my siblings.
