24. Camille's turn

~Camille POV

I get up and throw away my soda can.

"Hey, uhh..." Someone behind me goes. I turn around and see one of Britta's friend. I think it was Cassidy.

"Camille." I tell her. I didn't introduce myself to anyone. Haha. Crap.

"Camille. So how long have you known Britta?" Cassidy asked.

I think back to when I first met Britta. I was coming home from school and we saw a family moving into our house next door. My dad and I walked over and we introduced ourselves. Our families soon became close. I'd talk with her on boy troubles, I'd watch sports with Charlie, and I'd babysit Louisa and Tristan. Then she and Charlie divorced and it was her and her two children. She also helped my parents out when I was packing for Brigham Young University.

"About five years now, I guess. She's my next door neighbor in San Diego. And she was there when I was packing up to go to BYU in Idaho. She and my family are friends. And she's gotten close with my boyfriend."

Cassidy beams up. "So who's your boyfriend?" She asks.

I chuckle a little. "It's Logan Lerman."

That's when her mouth drops. "So the guy sitting next to you isn't a guy who looks like he could be Logan's twin?!" I nod walking to the fridge to grab another soda. "Can I just say you are one lucky gal! But I'm warning you, guys aren't always what you think they are."

I open the soda and sigh. "Everyone says that."

I walk back to the couch. "So Camille," Mrs.Carter starts, "Brit told us that you go to college at BYU in Idaho. How do you like it?"

I take a sip of my soda. "Well, I really like it there. I'm on a gap year this year so I've been using my spare time just relaxing and helping Britta with her kids. I'm an occasional babysitter, but Molly Parker is the full time one. And her job sometimes requires her to go out of town so I'm there." I answer.

"And might I say, that lucky gentleman next to you is quite charming." Niall adds on. Oh god, Niall talking to me. "He reminds me of a movie actor of some sort."

"It's Percy Jackson." Logan comments.

"Your name is literally Percy Jackson?" Niall asks.

We both chuckle. "No, Mr.Horan, I'm the actor of Percy Jackson. Logan Lerman."

Niall runs up to him and hugs him. "Glad to meet ya, son. And please call me Niall next time." I laugh inside me a little.

I look at Britta as she is talking to Nicole. She sneaks a look at me. "Are you liking Florida?" She mouths.

"You should show me around sometimes." I mouth back. She smiles and goes back to Nicole and Eleanor R.

"Alright, kids." Mr.Carter stands up, "I have decided to dedicate tonight for a little movie night!" We all cheer. "So any suggestions, I can order them."

We started spitting suggestions at him.

"Anchorman 2!" Kids.

"The Suite Life Movie!" Eh.

"Despicable Me 2!" Reasonable.

"Sea of Monsters!" No way!

"Camp Rock?" Depends.

"Planes because of younger kids?" I shrug at the idea.

"This Is Us?" Haven't the kids whose fathers are the stars of the movie used to seeing them every day and would rather see another movie other than that?

"Okay, how about this: the kids can watch Frozen in the game room and the adults" I give Mr.Carter a look, "and Camille can watch Anchorman 2. But first, who wants dinner?"

We all say yes.

"Okay, everyone. I'll make reservations and we can all go. So let's all go back to our hotels and such and hang out until it's time."

We separate.

I got up, but Logan was on his phone. Once he got off, he told me, "Camille, the producers called me and said I needed to come in for script reading. So I have to go back to California."

I stare into his eyes. "So what am I suppose to do?" I ask him.

He read his hand on my cheek. "Stay here. Be there for Britta. I'll be back."he kisses my lips quickly and walks out. He goes to his car and pulls out of the driveway.

I close my eyes as a single tear drizzles down my face. A hand is placed on my shoulder. I turn around and it is Zayn. "I'm staying for the night, and you're more welcome to stay in the guest room." He says.

"But where will you sleep?" I ask grabbing my bag. "And all my stuff is at the hotel."

"I can call Liam to bring them over because we are staying in the same hotel, right?" I nod, "So there. And I can sleep on the couch or Britta's room."

I walk upstairs, "I suggest Britta's room, Zayn. It'll be more entertaining in there for you."

Dang it I should've brought ear buds. I thought to myself.

[Merry belated Christmas, Camille! Very belated....almost two weeks. Haha.

Okay so I have midterms this week and I've been studying all weekend. Fun. Not. 

So four day weekend coming up soon! Going to update some and watch season three of Sherlock.

So thanks for reading! Happy birthday to Zayn and Naya Rivera! You two have amazing singing voices and are fantabulous! What the hell am I saying?

Have a good week!]
