Chapter 48


*A Few Weeks Later*

"ECHO! DAVEY! NATE! YOU'RE DAD IS LEAVING!" My mom called. I got up from my bed and walked down the stairs. My brothers pushed past me, almost knocking me down the stairs as they jumped on my dad.

"I'm going to miss you two so much." My dad said, his voice muffled by Nate's shoulder. He let them go and ruffled their hair. I walked up to my dad and hugged him tightly, burrying my face into his shoulder so I wouldn't cry.

"I promise I'll be back for your graduation." My dad said. I knew it was a 50/50 chance he would be there. Right now, there's no show that day, but I don't trust it.

"Okay." I said and he smiled, kissing my forehead. He kissed Legacy's forehead and kissed my mom's lips as we heard the bus honk outside.

"See you at the end of May." My dad said, winking at me before grabbing his stuff and walking out to the bus.


*One Week Later*

"Mom, can Isabella come over today?" I asked as I grabbed my bag to go to school.

"Of course." She smiled.

"Thanks." I said and walked out the door.

I got to school and saw Isabella standing by my locker. I walked up to her and hugged her, kissing her lips.

"Hey you." She smiled.

"Hey." I said, opening my locker. "Wanna come over after school?"

"Sure! Oh, can I meet your baby sister? I've been dying to see her! I love babies!"

"Probably." I said, closing my locker and grabbing her hand.


Isabella rode the bus home with me and we walked the short distance to my house.

"Someday, I'll have my own car and I won't have to ride that stupid bus anymore."

"Well, will you drive me to school?"

"Of course." I smiled, kissing her lips. "I was riding to school with my sister and her boyfriend last year, I was kind of their chaperone. Anyway, now that my dad trusts them a bit more, my sister refuses to let me catch rides anymore, so I'm back to riding the bus." I said as we walked into the house.

"We're home!" I called. I heard Legacy crying from upstairs and I rolled my eyes.

"Hey Isabella. Davey, can you go check on Legacy? I'm doing about a million things, Echo's not home yet and Nate's refusing to do anything."

"Sure, come on." I said, pulling Isabella upstairs.

"Thank you so much." My mom said, going back into the kitchen. We got to Legacy's room and I dropped my bag by the door, walking over to Legacy's crib.

"What's wrong Le-Oh god." I said as I got a whiff of her. I carried her over to her changing table and started to take off her onesie.

"Sorry about this." I said, taking off Legacy's diaper.

"It's fine." Isabella said, leaning against the doorway. I quickly got her diaper changed and picked her up, holding her. I leaned down and kissed her forehead, bouncing her a bit before looking up at Isabella.

"What?" I asked as she was smiling.

"You're a good big brother." She said and I shrugged.

"Do you want to hold her."

"Of course!" She exclaimed, walking over to me. I placed Legacy in her arms and Isabella smiled down at her.

"She's so cute! She looks like your mom." She said. "God, I wish I had a little sister."

"Uhm, no, you don't." I laughed. "I have to sleep with earplugs just so I can get a decent night's sleep."

"But she's so cute!"

"Cute but loud." I said and she just laughed. She handed Legacy back to me and I placed her back in her crib, walking over to the door and picking up my bag. I turned off the light and walked around the corner into my room, Isabella behind me.
