Amanda's POV

KNOCK…KNOCK…KNOCK! "Where is she, Louis why isn't she picking up her phone or answering the door, her car is downstairs…what if something happened to her?" I started to cry We've been trying to call Laurel all day her voicemail is full she hasn't even sent back a text. 

"Amanda calm down, where's your keys so I can unlock the door?" Louis said grabbing my shoulders. I searched my pockets pulling them out and handing them to him, thank god for Louis.

"Laurel!" We both yelled running from room to room. I ran up to her bedroom. Her bed wasn't made she always makes her bed, clothes were everywhere that wasn't her.

"She's not up here, did you find anything Louis?" I yelled running down the stairs I stopped at the bottom when I saw him picking up her purple phone from the couch.

"She hasn't answered anything not a text not a call nothing." He said looking down at the phone. He was going to cry, I hate when cries I don't like seeing him sad. 

"We should call Terri, she's on her date with Luke he can help maybe we should call Andy too?" I said looking in my phone for Terri's number.

"Here I'll talk." He said reaching for the phone, I handed to him without protest.

"It's ringing…I'll put it on speaker" He said.

"Hello Amanda?"

"It's Louis, Terri is Laurel with you?" He asked as he pulled me into a hug, I just sobbed into his shoulder.

"No she's at home!" She sounded worried. 

"Amanda and I are here but she's not, we've been trying to get a hold of her all day with no answer so we stopped by, her car and phone are here."

"Louis we'll be there in five minutes stay there." She said "Luke we got to go!" then the line was dead...

"Everything is going to be ok, maybe she went on a walk." He said still holding me.

"By herself at night?" I cried.

"Amanda look at me, she's fine okay Laurel is fine." He said as he kissed my forehead. I gabbed him so tight not wanting him to go anywhere. Then the door flung open it was Luke and Terri we both jumped when they ran in.

"Is she back!" She screamed.

"No!" I cried.

Terri ran out to the patio and screamed "LAUREL!"

"Maybe she went to the Pier or the beach for a walk." Louis said.

"You know you might be right, maybe she had to clear her head about the new information she got today." Luke stated.

"Wait what information?" I said looking at Terri.

"Your going to find out anyways Anna gave her a letter with information about her father." She sighed.

"What her father? Wow that's a lot to take in." Louis said

Laurel's POV

"Did I just hear my name? Ugh what time is it?" I grabbed for my phone oh wait it's at home. I sat up there was a large soft towel covering me. "Where did this come from?" It was still nice out with just a cool breeze. The air smelled of salt water, I took a deep breath and let it in gulf me. I love the smell of the ocean.

"Nice night isn't it? Sorry you were shivering when I got here so I covered you up." Said a guy floating in the pool he was cute probably in he's early 20's.

"Yeah it is, umm thank you! Do happen to know what time it is?" I asked as I got up from the chair folding the towel and setting it down, then I bent down to the pool.

"Sure let me check…It's 1:30, Hey your Laurel right?" He asked I was surprised he knew my name.

"Yeah, why?" I asked as I smiled.

"I'm sorry about your mom she was nice." He said as he stood in front of me looking up.

My smile went away. "Thanks, I better get home it's late. Good night umm…Whats your name…Sorry?" I asked.

It's Max, oh umm by the way I think someone called your name while you were sleeping. I'm not to sure I only heard the end of it. I'll see you around Laurel!" He said with with I smile.

I smiled back at him and then walked downstairs, When I got to my door I heard voices inside kinda frantic sounding. I opened the door and saw Louis holding Amanda she was crying, Aunt Terri was standing in front of them talking and Luke was walking into the living room from the kitchen. 

"What's going on? Whats wrong, Amanda are you ok?" I said running to her.

"Oh my god Laurel where have you been?" Aunt Terri cried pulling me in her arms. 

"I'm sorry I didn't know you'd be coming home, I went to the pier to walk around and hung out with Charlie and then went to the pool and feel asleep on one of the lounge chairs, promise!" I said as looked in her eyes, I left out the making out with Charlie part I don't think Louis would like that. 

"Okay just promise me next time take your phone and let someone know where your going ok?" She said as she gave me another hug.

"Okay I promise!" I said kissing her cheek.

"If this is what being a parent is I'm out…Ha Ha just kidding. All this worrying and just being terrified not knowing where you were I was so scared." she said.

"I'm sorry." I said. She let me go and then Amanda jumped me and I feel to the ground she was on top of me everyone laughed. 

"Don't you ever do that again or I'm going to never ever leaving your side ever again!" She yelled. 

"Okay...I can't breath…get off me!" I laughed.

"Ok fine, I will." she said as she got up, she reached for my hand and pulled me up from the ground.

"Aunt Terri, I made my decision on my walk home from the pier." I said sitting on the couch.  

"Oh you mean about your dad?" She said looking at me, Luke was sitting next to her with his arm around her shoulders. "So what is it, What did you choose." She added.

"I need to find him! So I'm going to call the P.I. tomorrow so he can get started." I told them. 

"If that's what you want we'll all be here to support you." She stood up and gave me a hug.

"Thank you, that's all for later so for now I'm tired and I'm going to go to bed so good night…Louis, Amanda are you coming?" I said letting her go and looking at them all. Louis and Amanda looked confused. 

"Umm…yeah right behind you." Louis said looking down at Amanda.

"Well you kids sleep good, we are going to go back to Luke's ok I'll see you later." She said.

"Okay good night you two." I told them as I got to the top of the stairs.

"Aren't you worried about the three of them up there alone?" I heard Luke ask Aunt Terri.

"No I'm not she has way to much on her mind, sex is so on the back burner and plus their good kids." She said. She was right sex is not even an issue it never has been. I closed the door and turned to hug Louis and Amanda.

"I'm so sorry if I scared you, I didn't mean to." I said kissing them on their cheeks.

"Just don't do that again, so your dad huh?" Louis said hugging both of us really tight. 

"Yep, Here's the note." I said as I handed to him. He and Amanda read it as they got comfortable on my bed. I went and got changed in my closet I threw Amanda some shorts and a tank top and Louis some gym shorts he left over here that way they didn't have to sleep in jeans. 

"Wow that's crazy." They both said as got up to change Amanda went into the closet, Louis didn't move he just changed right there by the bed. I was so tired I didn't want to talk about it anymore.

So I laid down and got under the covers, Louis got in the middle and Amanda got in on the other side of him just like always. Louis had his arms stretched out under our heads, Amanda and I laid there holding hands on his bare stomach as he kissed both of us on the tops of our heads and his hands on our waists. 

"Good night!" We all said.
