Tanya"s POV

How? In a plane accident.

Why? The plane was running low on fuel.

When? Three hours ago.

Where? Some field in the middle of nowhere. (I'm not sure which state)

My mom is... dead. She had her faults, but she was still my mom. She was the one who brought me into this world and cared for me. She comforted me when my dad left us. Now, she's dead. I walked back inside when the crying slowed down, and everyone's eyes were on me.

"Oh my god! Tanya what happened? Are you alright?" Mia asked running over to me and giving me a hug. No, I'm not alright. I cleared my throat and tried to get words out.

"My mom.... she... she's....uh... she's...dead." I choked out. Everyone kinda just stood there, dumbfounded.

"Tanya, I'm so sorry." Monse said and got up to hug me. Pretty soon, we were all in a very big group hug. Then I heard a little voice and remembered that I need to tell Melony, but how?

"Hey Mel." I said smiling and picking her up to hold her. She gave me a hug and kissed my cheek.

"Why are you crying?" Mel asked quietly. How do I do this?

"Um, Mommy said you can live with me and I just got so happy, I started crying a little. I'm fine, see." I said and plastered a fake smile on. I put Melony down and she ran over to Michael and started pulling on his arms.

"Mikey can we play dollies?" Mel asked eagerly. I giggled a little when Michael went wide eyed. I'm glad I have these people in my life.

"I-uh... I don't really play dollies." Michael said. He didn't want to dissapoint Mel, but he didn't want to play dolls either.

"Aw come on Michael!" Calum started. "Let's go play dollies with Mel. Maybe her doll has a dress that matches your hair." Calum said smiling.

Michael smacked the back of Cal's head and went upstairs with him and Mel to play. All the rest of us just started laughing. I can't believe I'm actually laughing right now.

"So Tanya, is your mom having a funeral?" Luke asked cautiously. He probably thinks I'm not ready to talk about it, and I appreciate him being so considerate.

"Um, as far as I know, yes. It's just... they haven't even found her body." I said.

"Tanya, we really are sorry for your loss. If you ever need to talk or if you just need a shoulder to cry on, we're here for you." Mia said with a sympathetic smile.

"Thank you so much, but can we talk about something else?" I asked. I just don't want to think about my mom anymore.

"Okay, how was your date with Ashton?" Mia asked.

"Oh my god! It was awful! We went to the restaurant and he was checking out our waitress the whole time. Then when we left, he asked if I had a good time. His car broke down and is still on the road somewhere right now. We had to walk and we got into a huge argument. He said he hates me and I said I hate him." I said leaving out the kiss part, for now.

"Oh my god! Is that all that happened, or is there more?" Monse asked.

"Well after we exchanged 'I hate you's ' we kinda... kissed." I said.

"Like oh my god! Are you totally like for serious right now!" Luke said in his most high school girl voice. We all just laughed and I blushed a bit.

"Yeah, I'm totally like for serious, and I kissed him again later that night." I said and Mia started smirking.

"What" I asked.

"I told you that you like him. You said ' what no i hate him' and now BOOM you kissed. I was so right!" She said and high-fived Monse because they were both right about me liking Ash.

"How about we stop talking about me. Mia, when are you due?" I asked. She looked at Luke and blushed a bit.

"Uh, sometime in late May or early June. Wait it's the 29th of October, right?" Mia asked to which we all nodded.

"Oh my god! It's almost Halloween!" She exclaimed.

"Mia, you are eighteen, not eight. Why are you so excited?" I asked. She just stopped smiling and her lip started to quiver.

"You're right. I'm so immature! I'm not ready to be a mom!" She started to cry into Luke's chest and he hugged her and comforted her, and I immediately felt really bad. I looked at Luke and he mouthed 'mood swings' to me and i nodded. I still feel kinda bad though.

"Mia, I wasn't saying you were immature and you're gonna be an awesome mom." I said. She stopped sobbing and pulled her head away from Luke's chest.

"Really?" She asked.

"Yea, you're kids are gonna be so adorable and you're gonna be a great mom." I said.

"Thanks Tanya. What do you say we take Melony to the costume shop today?" Mia asked and Monse agreed so looks like we'll be having a girls' day.

I went upstairs to see if Ashton was awake yet and he was.

"Hey, you're awake!" I said smiling.

"No really?" Ash said sarcastically.

"What is your problem?" I snapped.

"You're my problem. You're so confusing! Yesterday you hated me, then you kissed me, then you woke up and left." Ashton said quite loudly.

"Screw you Ashton! I had more important things to worry about than laying in bed with you!" I yelled back and stormed off. I hate him!

"Hey Tanya, take Mel home and get changed so we can head to the costume shop. Michael wants to come, so it's not really a girls' day anymore." Mia said. I grabbed Mel's backpack and we walked next door to my house.

Melony is dressed and waiting for me in the living room. I don't know what to wear, so I just throw on some dark blue skinny jeans and a blue t shirt with some black TOMS. I quickly brushed my hair and made my way downstairs and I heard someone talking to Melony.

Ashton's POV

What does she mean "more important things"? What is going on?

I walked over to Tanya's house and knocked on the door. When the door opened, I didn't see anyone standing there. I looked down and saw Melony standing there. I chuckled and she let me in.

"Tanya is upstairs." Melony said quietly.

"Melony, is there something wrong with Tanya? She's upset with me and I'm not sure why." I said to the little girl standing before me. She just shrugged and sat down in the living room.

I told Melony that I was gonna go find Tanya and she stopped me right before I started going upstairs.

"Ashton wait!" Melony said and I turned around.

"Yeah?" I asked.

"Tanya said that you're a stupid, self centered, jerk. What does that mean?" Melony asked.

"It means she's mad at me because I'm an idiot." I said.

"You sure are." A voice said from behind me, Tanya.

"Tanya can we talk?" I asked.

"No Ashton, I'm done talking to you." Tanya said and pushed her way out the door with Melony right behind her.

And with that I let the girl I'm in love with walk out the door. In love? Oh who am I kidding? I'm in love with her.
