18. Fading Memories Chapter Eighteen

Brooklyn's POV:

The door was knocked on, Shaun looks at me and I shake my head no. 

My family actually making an effort to find me? No, something must seriously be wrong. But I don't really want to talk to anyone besides Shaun and his family. Uncle Z keeps knocking and knocking. I scoff and open the bag of skittles, of course it exploded and went all over the hardwood floor making so much noise. 

"Brooklyn!! You're the only one to be eating skittles - even candy - this early in the day!" Uncle Zayn yelled through the door. 

I look at the microwave, eleven thirty. Almost lunch time, so what? I get up off the floor and answer the door. 

"Harry wants to apologize to you. Harr- your dad didn't mean anything he said. He was... Mad. Shocked!" He said as soon as I opened the door. 

"I don't want to talk to him. I don't want to see him either. Whatever you say... I'm not going anywhere other than school next week or the store. I'm not leaving this house for any other reason!" I reply. 

"Well, too late!" He smirked and bit his lip. 

Stop biting your lip. You're so attractive, it's so wrong. Uncle Zayn moved aside, pointed to the car, in the car was a mix of sad and angry Harry Styles - my dad. 

I slam the door shut. I can't believe it. He's actually bring him here? I grab my food and go to Shaun's room and just go to Netflix and watch some episodes of Lost. Really slow day until the house phone went off. They really have a landline?..

"Hello?" I spoke into the phone. 

"Oh, hey Brook, can you put Shaun on the phone?" Mr. Nelson responded. 

"Sure," I reply and find Shaun on the couch and hand him the phone. 

Shaun's cellphone goes off as I enter his room again. I recognize the number, but don't exactly know who it was. 

*Who is this?* I typed and sent it with a click of a button. 

*Aunt Meghan. Some reason Uncle Zayn had Shaun's number and gave it to Uncle Niall and I texted you but you didn't reply. Your fathers came over and told me what happened with your phone and that you left, so I texted Shaun!*

Awesome, Aunt Meghan. She's the best. I end up calling her, we make plans and that I'll pick her up at her house and we'll go out for lunch. 

I set my phone down on the nightstand next to Shaun's bed, he walks in and wraps his arms around me, probably wanting some of my food. 

"You're not getting my food." I giggle, looking up at him. 

"Darn it," he jokes. "But what did your uncle want?"

"For me to talk to my dad. I'm not gonna talk to him, he was rude and called me names.... But I'll have to talk them both soon." I reply 

"But for now you can just stay here and relax until school starts up again." He smiles. 

"Oh, I am going to see my aunt today at two. Wanna come?" I spoke with a grin on my face. 

He sighs and just nods. I kiss his cheek and thank him. 

I go into the bathroom to take a shower. 

****

"Shaaaaaun get dressed we have to leave in ten minutes." I whine to the boy who hasn't even taken a shower. 

"Relax. I take fast showers." He replies grabbing a plaid shirt and jeans. 

I put on my clothes from yesterday considering I didn't bring clothes. So, I slip on my minty color hi-low dress and white Hollister sandals. I use his moms curling iron quickly, twisting my hair around the barrel and releasing it seconds later. 

I'm so running late. Between him not taking a shower until now, me waiting last minute to do my hair, and I took a shot nap that turned into a nap until one twenty. 

Shaun walked out of his bathroom and asked if I was ready. I nod and hold out my hand for him to hold. He slams his hand into mine and smirks. He entwined our fingers, picking up his car keys. 

*****

Aunt Meghan got in the passenger side as Shaun slid into the backseat.

I pulled into the restaurant everyone agreed on, parking the car, turning it off and giving Shaun back his keys. 

We sat at our table am hour after waiting. 

"So, Shaun what do you want to study after high school?" Aunt Meghan asked. 

"To be honest, I wanna be a music critic or give drum lessons but I don't think that'll pay off a house," he chuckles. "So basically I'll learn about music and try getting a career as a critic for the music, and like a weekend job when there's nothing to do I'll give drum lessons."

"That sounds great! Sounds like you're really ready to go to college. And you Brooklyn?" She replies with a smile. 

"I'm not sure." I reply honestly 

I really don't want to go to college but every high paying jobs, you'll need a college degree of some sort. How much do makeup artist make? Hairstylist? Maybe I'll be a stylist. That's fun and easy.

"You'll have to decide sooner than you think Brook, you'll need to start applying to colleges soon." Aunt Meghan said placing a hand on my shoulder. 

"I just don't want to be separated from Shaun. His college is here and mine is in Maine. When we used to live there my teachers knew how much I loved hair and told me about the colleges there. It's hard." I reply getting up from the table and go to the bathroom. 

As I got into the bathroom I splashed water on my face, gently dabbing the water off with the paper towels in the bathroom. 

Aunt Meghan walks in rubbing my back. 

"Sweetie. You know that Shaun seems like he'd make an effort to come see you in Maine, and you'd travel back down here because this is where your family is. We all love you and we'll support you. We'll help pay for plane tickets to come back down!" She grins at me. 

I smile back and hug her. She's the best, she's the mom in my life. The story of how my dads and uncles met her is weird yet amazing. Uncle Niall and everyone else lost contact of her after the band split up, but Uncle Niall had been in the hospital visiting his brother, Greg, and his nurse was Aunt Meghan. He knew it was her by her face. The brown eyes, auburn hair, small nose, cute smile. 

"Let's get back to the table before the waiter comes round." Aunt Meghan said as we let go. 

I nod, we head back to the table in time. 

"I'll have a Pepsi." Shaun said to the man. I look at Shaun weird. 

"Water." I spoke. 

"Same for me, water." Aunt Meghan smiled. 

"Pepsi?!" I ask as soon as the waiter leaves. 

"Yeah. There's no coke." Shaun shrugged. 

"There's Mountain Dew." I reply. 

He just shrugs. The drinks come, we order our food, eat, and leave. 

We get back into the car, we all needed to go to the store, yes I need to go again! I dropped my skittles! I drive to the closest but nicest market. 

I go to the candy aisle, get the bag of skittles and put it in my cart. I find Shaun and Aunt Meghan in the sugar aisle. He puts the bag into her cart and walks over to me. 

"Skittles?" He mocks. 

"I dropped them earlier." I shrug. 

I stand on my tip toes and he leans down and kisses me quickly. I wrap my arms around his waist. We stand in line after an hour more of shopping. 

The last time I was at the market this long, I was with Uncle Zayn. That was a day I'll never forget. 

We get back into the car, buckle up, and head back to Aunt Meghan's house to drop her off. 

Once she's gone, Shaun and I go back to his house and relax.
