"Head in the clouds, got no weight on my shoulders"
When I was little, I thought life was perfect. But now, everything is a lie. I face things every single day ever since my mom died. About 80 percent of them involve my dad. He wants me to be something that I'm not, and it's stupid. I can't change myself, but in order to appease to him, I made this compromise with him. This compromise was worse than what he wants me to actually be. I've got 99 problems. But you, Ashton, won't be one.


36. Simmer

Ashton spent the night at my place as we were just too lazy to throw on any clothes afterwards. We stayed in each other's arms the entire time, not wanting to go.

Except one time when I had to pee after we had sex because hey I don't want a UTI.

I told him everything and by everything I exaggerate it. Everything. From what I do at the club to how I was able to stay a virgin until now to how my dad brings home women every other night when he's home to just everything.

The next morning I knew I should have locked my door because standing in the doorway was Audrey.

"Audrey!" I yelled scrambling to cover myself up with my duvet and getting off Ashton. "It's not what you think."

She smiled at me. "It's fine it's fine. We were sweeping up downstairs when we heard something similar to the noises made when your father brings one of his sluts home." I love Audrey. "But Hanna and I heard the name Ashton and we thought 'what's going on why is Ashton here?' and then all the moaning and stuff." Now I'm super red. "Okay get up, lovebirds you probably have stuff to do today." Then she leaves the room.

Ashton got out of bed to put on his clothes from yesterday and he tossed me a clean set of clothes and I get dressed. I get up but I think I got up too fast because that's when the pain came.

"You okay?" He asked walking over to help me up.

"Yeah I'm fine. A little pain never killed me." I tell him regaining strength and started to get dressed. " first time..." He nodded understanding.

"So anything you want to do today? It's a Sunday." He reminds me.

"Well I was going to study for my finals, but I know I'm still going to pass them no matter what."

"Want to go to Chik-fil-a?" He asked and we both just broke down laughing because it's a Sunday.

"I think I'm good without a chicken sandwich today." I say finally stopping laughing. That was when my phone rang. I picked it up from my nightstand and looked to see who's calling. It was the Auburn Police Department. I look at Ashton worried and answer it. "Hello?"

"Hello miss Watson?" The caller asked.

"This is she." I answered.

"Hello Connor. We just got a call from the Ann Arbor chief sheriff." Wait why would Auburn get a call from the sheriff of Ann Arbor, Michigan? "They found your father."


Ashton was able to drive me to the station so the police can discuss what's going to happen with my dad. The receptionist didn't question why he was carrying me on his back inside to the conference room. But he sat with me in the room.

That was when the officer and the director of the police department came in.

"Miss Watson it's great to see you again." He said. I forgot his name but I call him baldy because he's bald.

"Hello." I reply as baldy sits down and looks at Ashton with a questioning look. "Oh this is Ashton, my...boyfriend." I tell baldy and he just nods.

"Would Ashton mind if he wait outside? He might not—"

"He knows what my dad does." I tell him as I told the office what my dad really does when he was originally missing and that not many people know about it.

"Okay. So Miss Watson, Ann Arbor got in contact with us saying they arrested a man for a hit-and-run. He was identified as Brett Watson." My dad's name. "As you know, we sent out a mass email to multiple police stations across the United States. Apparently, one of the stations is close by Ann Arbor and as the hit-and-run gained the attention of the area, the station contacted Ann Arbor's station who contacted us saying that they have Brett Watson in custody with mugshot and everything. Everything matched your father."

He then went on to say that all of the information that I gave them and with a warrant they had for the club, they were able to verify my statements to be true. My dad will be arrested on the charges of Michigan with the hit-and-run and a DUI and also the charges of the state of California with counterfeiting and child enticement (because he forced me to work at the club at age 16). There's a likely chance he will spend time in prison. A long time depending if the victim hit lives or not because they are in critical conditions.

I take all of this in and once baldy is done, I take a deep breath and tell him that I understand. Ashton took my hand and squeezed it as I look down in my lap.

Now I truly have no immediate family left. My mom is dead, and now my dad is in jail.

"Mind if I ask of a request? For all of the employees that worked at the club." I say to baldy.

"Sure what is it?"

"I want you to find them jobs. Real jobs. Not stripping and serving drinks and having sex because it was their only choice. A place for all of them to have a balanced out salary for paying debts. A job that will let them be treated for who they are. Please. That's my only request." I think for another moment and look at Ashton and smile at him and look back. "Actually I have one more." Baldy raises an eyebrow.

I might be crazy but I'm not because I'm an only child and this deserves to happen.

"I want my high school graduation to be streamed to my dad in Michigan. He may have been an asshole for the past six years, but I want him to see his only daughter graduate."

All of my requests were granted.


I have made it an official decision to make next chapter Connor's high school graduation. Which means it's going to be the last chapter for Problems and there will be an epilogue.


I plan to have a sequel about Connor and Ashton in college. But instead of it being their first year of college, it'll be their second year so that story will take place in the present.

I can't believe this story is close to being done. I've always loved writing this story but with it have been a long time since I started it, I knew this was going to end soon.
