11. The Torn Can Always Be Fixed


I felt so different right now. I was just so angry and upset, but now, all I felt was happiness. I didn’t let go of Justin for a good five minutes before Frankie stood up.

“I’ll let you guys talk.” He smiled at me and gave me a quick kiss on the cheek.

“Thank you Frankie, I don’t think it will take long.”

As Frankie left, I lead Justin over to the bed. I sat down and he sat next to me. I was silent for a while, but it wasn’t awkward; it wasn’t peaceful either because I would think about what happened not even 30 minutes ago and get angry again. Then I would remember Justin was beside me.

“Are you okay?” he asked suddenly.

“Yeah… I’m fine.”

“You don’t sound fine. Ashlee you can tell me you know.”

I sighed, “No; I’m not fine. I’m mad at myself for letting Sam get to me, but I’m even more upset with myself for letting you walk away when I needed you.”

I hadn’t looked up at him for the whole time we had been sitting until now. I looked at him and he was looking right back. His eyes had a pained look to them, but also love.

“I thought you were trying to find a way to put me down easily, and I didn’t want that.”

“Yeah I figured; I wasn’t rejecting you though. I was thinking back through what you had said. Did you mean it?”

“Mean what?”

“You want to be the old man walking down the side walk beside me in 50 years.”

He paused, chuckled lightly before saying, “Yeah; I meant ever word I said to you. I know you said you wanted to get to know me, but Ashlee. I really want you to be my girlfriend so I can protect you from people like Sam.”

I smiled to myself, “Yes.”


“I’ll be your girlfriend—”

“You will?!?”

“IF,” I laughed, “if you can get Frankie’s permission. He’ll probably be a lot tougher now. Ya know… ‘cause of Sam.”

“I think I can do it.”

“Well let’s find out.” I said getting up. I had gotten to the door when I heard Justin.


“If you want to be my boyfriend, then you have to get Frankie’s permission. So why not go ahead and get it?”

I opened the door and Mariana came toppling in. I looked at her questioning.

“I was just…,” she looked over at Justin, “I like him better too!” She quickly ran out after saying that.

Justin and I laughed before I walked out looking for Frankie.

I walked around the house and found him making a protein shake for himself in the kitchen.


“Yeah?” he asked without looking my way.

“Can we have a meeting upstairs?”

He looked over at me this time with confusion written across his face. “Uhm, yeah sure. I’ll be right up.”

“Thank you.” I turned around and walked back up to my room.

When I got in the room Justin shot up from the bed.

“Nervous much?” I questioned him laughed.

“Yeah; If Frankie doesn’t like me, then I can’t be with you. This is a big deal Ashlee.” He almost whispered.

“If he didn’t trust you enough, he wouldn’t have left the room while we talked. He’d still be sitting right there on the bed.”

Justin was about to answer when I heard, “She’s right.”

I turned around and saw Steven and James at the door way. “Come on in.”

“Wait, what?” Justin asked worriedly.

“We have to get Frankie’s permission, yes, but we also have to get their permission too.” I looked over at them before continuing. “I think we already have James’ though; since he was the one that called you.” I looked down, but back quickly.

“Yeah, but I want to see what everyone else has to say. I think Justin’s a good guy.” James said acting as if Justin weren’t even here.

“Thanks James. I really—” Justin was cut off by Frankie.

“Okay; let the meeting begin.”

I looked over at Justin and he mouthed ‘meeting’ to me questioningly. I nodded at sat down on the bed motioning for him to follow. When he did the boys came over to us. Steven sat on the floor along with James, but Frankie stood. I was used to it because it showed that we all knew Frankie was in charge here, but I felt Justin tense up beside me. I put my hand on his knee to show him I was right beside him so he didn’t have to be nervous. I saw him look over at me and smile out of the corner of my eye.

“So Ashlee,” Frankie began, catching everyone’s attention, “why did we need to call a meeting this time?”

I cleared my throat, “Well, I know that you want to protect me, all of you,” I gestured to Steven and James too, “but I think Justin wants to have part of that job too.” I looked at Justin who was nodding. “I think I can trust him. Of course, it won’t be as easy anymore, but I think we can work through it.” I sighed, waiting for someone else to speak.

“I think it’ll just take time, but you know, you did have a conversation with him while you were alone in a room with him Ashlee. The door was closed and everything! If you hadn’t come out when you did, I thought someone would walk in on some—”

“JAMES!” Frankie cut in. “Don’t talk about our sister like that!”

Steven and I were laughing so hard at what James was saying. Justin, on the other hand, was completely red. I looked at him and whispered to him, “You know you can laugh with us right?”

He chuckled lightly saying, “Maybe next time if I’m not so embarrassed.”

I smiled as Steven spoke up. “Well, apparently I was just as blind as Ash was when it came to Sam,” this time I tensed up, and Justin put his hand on my knee. He only took it away seconds later when Frankie’s glare scared him. Steven had paused while I had stood up, grabbed Frankie, and walked out.

“What Frankie? Why can’t he put his hand on my knee showing me that he won’t let Sam get near me again? Why can’t you just be nice to him like you were to Sam? I know that answer, but Justin is different. He said if I could have all the time I needed to get over what happened earlier today. He told me he understood, and if he got to close or did anything I didn’t want to do, that he would back off! I like him Frankie. You know how I told you I froze when he told me everything at the beach? I froze because I didn’t want to believe anyone could think of me in such a loving way. When he walked away from me that day, a completely different feeling came to me than when Sam walked off that stage. That time, I felt broke in two. I fell to the ground because I didn’t know what to do without him. Please Frankie. If you want to, you can come everywhere with us, but please, just give him a chance. I am.” I begged Frankie, and he saw it in my eyes that I was serious.

Frankie’s hard serious look faded away quickly. I came closer to me and wrapped his arms around me. He picked me up in the hug. When he put me down, he looked down into my eyes, “Only if you’re sure.”

I smiled and nodded quickly. We went back into room Steven and I shared. All eyes were on us. Steven and James smiled, seeing that Frankie was gonna give Justin a chance, but Justin didn’t see it. He looked worried, but before I could tell him anything Frankie spoke up.

“Justin; can I trust you to take care of Ashlee?”

Justin stood up when Frankie said his name, “Yeah; yes you can trust me with her. I won’t let anything happened to her. I promise.”

Frankie had grabbed my hand when we had first entered, but now he was leading me over to Justin with my hand out. Justin looked at my hand then at Frankie. I smiled knowing that Frankie was giving Justin permission to take me into his arms, along with his, Steven’s, and James’, but still, it was really nice to see Frankie trusting someone not in the family with me.

Justin took my hand and I squeezed his. I looked up at him, then at Frankie. I smiled at him and tears came into my eyes. I pushed them away knowing Frankie would get worried, but they were happy tears. I saw Frankie tense up and he was about to come over, but I think James got that they were happy tears, and grabbed hold of Frankie before anything could happened.

“Well, back to what I was saying before I was rudely interrupted,” Steven started before laughing. I remembered he was giving what he thought when I ran out with Frankie. “I know Ash and I were blind, but I think I can see something good in Justin. I approve.”

I laughed and went over to hug him. Soon James and Frankie had come into the hug and were surrounding me. I got out and grabbed Justin and hugged him before walking backwards towards the boys. I felt their arms around Justin and I, and I smiled. ‘This is how it’s supposed to feel.’

Soon enough I felt little arms around my legs, I didn’t have to look down to know that it was Mariana. After I heard Aunt Peggy’s heels running across the floor with Uncle Frank behind her. They came into the hug too. We stayed like that for a while, so long it became awkward. I cleared a little and everyone let go. I smiled to myself and walked over to Frankie. He whispered the sweetest thing to me. I almost started crying then and there.

“The torn can always be fixed. You were torn between Sam and Justin, you made the wrong choice, and Sam tore you in half. Then Justin came. He’ll be the one to fix you Ashlee. I’m sure of it.”
