It All Makes Sence to Me: These Litttle Things

The third and final book in the "Bear this in Mind' series, following "Meant to Be" contines on, skipping about 8 years ahead from "MTB".

In the story, Liam and Claire Payne have a big family of their own, and are doing a pretty goof job of figuring out what it's all about. However, not everything is easier with a family, over half of marriages end in divorce, and families can easily be torn apart and destroyed. Will they be able to beat the statistics with all of the crazy things that will be happpening in the future?

I hope you enjoy this book, and feel free to comment ANY suggestions you might have! Xxxx

7. What I heard

(CLAIRE'S POV)

i got a call at work from Riley's school, saying she was being extremely disrespectful and rude in Spanish with Jake and was asked to leave.  I WAS IN A SERIOUS MEETING WITH A BIG COMPANY, AND I HAVE TO JUST LEAVE BECAUSE OF THIS!  I was pissed, but also something sounded a little off, I mean Riley? I would expect this from Taylor or maybe Austin, but not Riley. I called Liam, too and he was trying to calm me down the whole way to the school, which was a really quick drive, and althoughhe was  trying for my sake, it wasn't helping at all.  

We saw Jake and Riley walk in holding hands. Is there something else going on here that I didn't realize? 

After we found out what happened, A little part of me was proud at her for doing something I would do at that age too, and really pissed at that teacher. But,  I was really upset at Riley for swearing at and going off on the teacher. 

Then, I knew we had to do something about this...she needed to get out of that school, at least for sometime that is the only way.  

"Riley! We will talk about this later, but I am so upset right now I can barely look at you can you just go to your room?", I said. 

"Fine!", she said storming up the stairs. 

"PHONE?", I yelled after her and she tossed it to me, running away next and I was pretty sure she started to cry or was going to really soon if she was anything like me which I knew she was. 

Liam and I went up to our room, and I cried.  He held me, and that made me feel a little better.

"Liam, we...we need to pull her out of that school at least for half a semester, she barely made it there last year, and if she is going to have this attitude with the teachers....", I said feeling the tears coming on. 

"Babe, I know your upset, and I agree with you, but think about how horrible Riles is feeling right now, I mean she was sticking up for us, and I know that teacher is a bitch! Who else would bring us up like that? I think Riley was doing the right thing just in the wrong context. I think once you calm down, you need to go talk to her.  Tell her the punishment, and that you understand her", Liam said kissing my lips. 

I cooled down for awhile, and then knocked on Riley's door. 

"Go away!", she said. 

"Riley, you need to open this door right now please", I said. 

She slowly opened the door, and I walked in. 

"Riley, I'm sorry for overreacting before, you know I love you I'm just very disappointed in you", I said.

"But mom, I was sticking up for you and dad, I wasn't trying to get suspended!", She said.

"I know Riley, but You shouldn't have been talking in class anyways.

"Now, dad and I have decided that....you can have your phone back", I said handing it to her.

"But, Riley you understand we have to punish you", Liam said entering the room.  She shook her head.

"Your mother and I have both agreed that you will have to switch schools", he explained, and she freaked out.

"NOOO! YOU CAN'T DO THIS PLEASE DON'T!", she said tears in her eyes.

"Riley, we have to.  But, the thing is if you can prove to us that you can go half of a semester without any problems, you can return to your school. That's final", I said.

"That is sooo not fair!", she complained.

 

I grabbed my phone once they left my room, and called Jake instantly, crying.

"Riley, what's the matter?", he asked me.

"Jake...I have to switch schools", I said crying still.

"Riley no! How am I supposed to go to school without you there?", he said.

"I don't know but you'll have to, what was your punishment?", I asked.

"They haven't decided yet, but my mom is pissed!", he said. 

"Mine is too,plus my dad's siding with her too!". I responded.

"How long are you gonna have to switch?"  He asked me.

"Half a semester!", I responded. "if I don't get in trouble, and it's some private school too", I told him.

"Well Riley, you can do it! We an still see eachother a lot, right?", he said. 

"Look,   Gotta go, but call me back soon", I said.
