"Lily Pad!" Carter yelled as I jumped into his arms.
We hugged and I ginned real big. Carter and I were best friends in middle school. We met during our summer camps. I went to cheer camp and his baseball camp was right across the lake. When we had a bonfire on their side of the lake. We ended up hanging out more and more and we gradually became best friends. But then I moved here and I never heard from Carter again.
"What are you doing here Lils?" Carter asked.
"I'm Skylynn's baby sitter."
"Yup. What are you doing here?"
"I work with Nash and them for a business called Magcon. We are all friends and kinda famous."
After that we all sat down and started talking. I got to know the guys and even heard Shawn sing (Which of course gave me chills). We watched a movie and then I had to go take care of Sky. I played with her all day and then I put her down for bed time.
"Can you sing me a song?"
"Sky...it's passed your bed time."
"Just one. Pwease?"
I thought of the lullaby my dad used to sing to me...the song that put me asleep for years.
Hush-a-bye, Don't you cry
The song that would comfort me on stormy nights.
Go to sleep, my little baby
The song that drifted through my ears after a nightmare.
When you wake...You shall have
The song he sang to me the nights I was in the hospital with pneumonia.
All the pretty little horses
The song that he sang as I saw him pale and sick when he got the flu.
Dapples and greys, pintos and bays
The song that he sang on his death bed, the last time I ever heard it.
All the pretty little horses.
As I sang the last line of the song I noticed Sky drift off to sleep. I wiped the tears that I hadn't even noticed began to fall and decided to sleep next to Sky. I climbed in next to her and held her little body tight, humming the song as I drifted into a dark, dreamless sleep.
