School was finally over and the summer was just about to begin. I was playing on spending the days with my sister and my best friend Mia, and spending the nights with my friend Rydel and her brothers. At least that was the plan, until I got home to see my mother sitting in the living room sipping up tea that my father's girlfriend Emma made. I quickly hurried into the kitchen to find my father talking to Emma, I could hear the anger in his usually calm voice.
"What's mother doing here?" I asked interrupting them.
"Why don't you go ask her sweetie." Emma smiled softly at me but I could see the sadness lingering in her normally bright cheerful blue eyes. I set my bag on the counter before turning around and heading into the living room to find my sister already sitting next to my mother talking to her. Part of it annoyed me because our mother willingly up and left us taking our brothers with her.
"Why are you here?" I asked bluntly.
"I came to get you two." She smiled at me. It was her normal *I think I know what's best for you* smile.
"Because I think it's time that you girls join your family."
"But we are with our family." I snipped.
"Jeez Ally.." Jasmine groaned crossing her arms.
"I can't stop your mother from taking you two." My father said causing me to jump a bit out of fright. I looked at my mother to see a smirk rising across her face.
"Right, now go get your things around." She stated making me feel like a little child again. I bite my tongue before hurrying into my room slamming the door behind me. I fell back against my bed staring up at the ceiling in frustration. There goes my summer plans.
After awhile I packed some of my things with frustration still lingering through my veins. Around six my father finally came to check up on me because he knew what I was capable to do to myself.
"All ready?" He asked.
"I guess." I mumbled.
"Don't take your anger out on me." He sighed rubbing his temple before walking out of my room. I sighed before lifting up my bag and heading down the steps to the living room. My mother was talking to Emma showing her pictures of the boys. I think that is going to be the only good thing about going with my mother. I get to see my twin brother again.
“All ready?” My mother asked and I nodded. I turned my head to see my sister sitting on her bag texting or something on her phone. The car ride to the hotel was long, a little too long for my liking because it meant that I had to hear about how amazing my mother’s life has been since she pretty much ditched us. When we got to the hotel my mother gave us a key to our room before, again ditching us. She told us to come to the pool once we put our things in the room.
“Why are you so upset?” My sister asked as we put our bags on a bed.
“Because she ditched us and now thinks that things can go back to how they were.” I mumbled.
“No.” I turned and looked up at her. “She can’t keep walking in and out of our lives expecting that we’ll be fine with it.”
She didn’t say anything else, instead she went into the bathroom to change into a bathing suit. I wasn’t in the mood to swim so I just kept my shorts and tank top on. After she was done changing we headed down to the hotel pool. It was an outside pool which allowed the sun to warm people up. We heard our mother’s laugh and saw her sitting at a table with Simon Cowell. I groaned as Jasmine linked arms with me and pulled me towards them.
“Ah there’s my beautiful daughters!” My mother smiled at us. I was about to say something sarcastic but before I was able to someone lifted me off my feet and spun me around. When I was back on my feet I turned my head to see that it was Cameron.
“Cam!” I squealed like a little girl as I wrapped my arms around him.
“So I am guessing that she is Allison?” Simon asked my mother and she nodded with a smile on her face.
“I didn’t know you were picking them up.” Cameron looked at my mother as he wrapped his arm around my shoulder.
“I wanted to surprise you and Kyle.” She said taking a sip of coffee.
“Speaking of the devil where is he?” Jasmine asked.
“Behind you.” I stated right before Kyle lifted her up in his arms and jumping into the pool. Everyone started clapping while I walked over to the side of the pool she had swam to. I had handed her a towel and she whipped her face.
“Cam your sisters are cute.” I heard someone say. I turned my head to see a guy with curly hair and green eyes smiling at me.
“Hi, I’m Perrie!” I turned my head again to see a blonde girl smiling at me. Behind her were three other beautiful girls smiling at me. “This is Jesy, Jade, and Leigh Anne.”
“Hi.” I smiled at them. “I’m Allison.”
“I’m Jasmine.” My sister said hopping out of the pool splashing me a bit too.
Being so close to the pool made me nervous. First off I can’t swim so I try to stay away from the water as much as I can. I stood up and swear that I almost had a heart attack when someone pushed me into the pool. I gasped for air causing my lungs to be filled with water. Then I felt someone lift me out of the water.
“Ally!” I turned my head as I coughed up water. Jasmine stared at me worriedly. I looked up to see that it was Cam who had pulled me out of the water. He wrapped his arms around me as my body started shaking from the fear.
