10. Home sweet home
We got home and Jack brought me up to my room so I could unpack. After I got unpacked and everything I limped downstairs to the kitchen for dinner. "Hey mom." I said walking in. "Hey sweetie. How was the trip with putting the ankle indecent aside." She asked. "It was great. But um Nash got a girlfriend." I said looking at the floor. "Oh that's great for him." She said. "Yeah sure." I mumbled. She frowned. "Is everything okay?" She asked. "Yeah, everything's fine." I lied. The truth is nothing was fine. I hated that he had a girlfriend. I didn't want to admit it to anyone because they might think I'm jealous. Well I'm knot sure if I'm jealous or not, but I'm still not telling anyone. "Okay then." She replied. Jack walked in and sat down at the table. We had dinner and I went back up to my room. It was only 5:00 and I didn't know what to do. I laid on my bed thinking. I thought about Nash and Ashley, about it he still cares about me, about if any of the other boys will get girlfriends, about what Cam said before the movie, about if I get a boyfriend. I thought for a long time, and I mean a really long time. Jack came in and said he was going to bed. He kissed me on the forehead and left for the door. "See ya in the morning." He said with a smile but his smile soon faded into a worried expression. He came back over to me and sat down next to me on my bed. He frowned. "Is everything okay?" He asked. "Um yeah everything's fine. Why?" I lied. "Well you didn't seem yourself during dinner, it looks like you've been crying, and it looks like your head hurts." He said. I didn't say anything, I just looked down. "Sydney, come on you can tell me." He said. I sighed. "Okay fine." I said. He looked at me ready to listen. "I'm not sure I like that Nash has a girlfriend, he barley did anything with me after he meet her." I said. "Seems like your jealous." He said. "Im not jealous." I said. His eyebrows went up and he gave me the 'yes you are' look. "Okay fine maybe a little." I mumbled. "Look Syd if you're upset that Nash isn't spending a lot of time with you then try and get some time to hang out." He said. "Okay, hopefully he doesn't bring her to San Diego." I mumbled under my breath. "Now get some sleep, it's already 10:00." He said standing up. "K." I said. He walked to the door but I stopped him. "Oh and um thanks for the talk, I fell a little better." I said. "It's what big brothers are here for." He said smiling. He left the room and I got my green and white pajama pants on and a white cami, and went to bed. That weekend I didn't really do much. It's Friday now. "Come on get up." Jack said picking me up from my bed and placing me down on the ground. I loved when he picked me up, I felt like a little kid again. "Fine." I groaned. He left my room and I went to my closet. I looked through it until I found Hayes's Davidson Day football jersey. I picked it up and put it on since it was clean and found a pair of skinny jeans to go with it. I went into the bathroom and straightened my hair and put it in a perfect high ponytail. I had breakfast and put on my red converse to match the jersey. "So I'm picking you two and Jack up during sixth period to go to the airport. I already have your bags in the car." My mom said as I got my blue and green flowered Vera Bradley backpack on. "K bye." We said walking out the door. I got in Jacks car and he came in too. He drives us to school everyday. I'm still in Middle school(8th grade), and Jack's in High school(12th grade) so it makes it harder. "K, bye. See you at 12:00." He said pulling up to my school. "Bye." I said hopping out of the car and running into the building. All during school people would ask my if that was actually Hayes's jersey, and why I was wearing it, and how I know him. I was in Math sixth period when they called me down. "Miss Dawson, please have Sydney Gilinsky down for early dismissal." The lady said over the loud speaker. "Okay." Miss Dawson said back. I put my stuff in my backpack and went down to the lobby. My mom, Jack, and Jack were waiting for me. We got in the car and rode to the airport. We left out backpacks in the car and grabbed our suitcases. We said our goodbyes and got on the plane. I texted Kaitlin that we were on the plane, and we took off. I slept most if the way because I was worn out from school. "Syd, wake up." Johnson said shaking me. "What?" I asked in a groggy voice. "What!? What do you think?" He asked with a bit of sarcasm. I giggled. "We're in Cali." I said stretching and smiling. We got off the plane and got our bags. "Hey guys." I heard a familiar voice say. I turned around and there was Taylor. A huge smile spread across my face. "Taylor!" I said jumping into his arms. "Hey crazy kid." He said smiling, with me still in his arms. I giggled and he kissed my forehead. "Hey man." Johnson said coming over. Taylor put me down and gave Johnson a "man hug". Gilinsky gave him one too.
