7. Chapter Seven
Chapter 7 ~ Caitlyn's POV
I was putting my sheets on my bed when my phone went off. I layed horizontally across the bed and took my phone off the charger.
Text from Aislin, 2:03pm: hey, I'm going to live with my mom in England for a couple of weeks. Tell Joe but I want to b the one to tell Connor.
I typed back: England? Aislin! Just out of the blue? Wht happened?!
Text from Aislin, 2:05pm: ms. Payne is wht happened. My mom has scheduled a flight for me. I leave in two days.
I just stared at my phone. How could she just go off to England. Sure she hasn't seen her mom in years but...my phone went off again.
Text from Aislin, 2:10pm: don't worry I'll Skype onto classes and contact u, Joe, and Connor all the time to keep up on things.
I sighed. There was no stopping her.
Well, of its wht u need, then it's wht u need.
Text from Aislin, 2:12pm: thx.
When r u gonna tell Connor tho?
Text from Aislin, 2:15pm: idk. Probably on the walk to school tomorrow.
So I'll leave early so I can walk with Joe then!
Text from Aislin, 2:17pm: yeah!
We texted each other for another hour or so before I had to get back to making my bed. I clicked out of iMessage and saw that I had a snapchat. It was from Joe. I opened it and saw a close up of his face and his message said "helloooo" I smiled and took a photo of me and typed "Ello" I hit send and a couple minutes later he replied with "hello beautiful." I almost dropped my phone. Joe just called me beautiful! It's a dream come true! But I can't let him see that. Just play it cool Caitlyn. I sent him a picture of my striped sock.
I snapchatted with Joe for half an hour before I really had to make my bed and get ready for my babysitting job tonight. I left the snap chat with a pic of me saying that I had to go. He sent one of him with a frowny face and said ok. I told him I would text him later.
I plugged my phone back in and got back to work on my bed.
I walked out of my house and ran my hand through my hair brushing my sideswept bangs back. I looked to my left and saw Joe walking. I ran up to him and he embraced me in a hug. I smiled as I hugged him.
He pulled out of the hug and we started walking to school. I turned around and saw Connor and Aislin walking. They had their heads close together. She must be telling him. I thought. I looked at Joe and decided that it was time I told him.
"Joe," I said.
"Yes?" He replied.
"I need to tell you something."
"What is that, beautiful?"
"Aislin is going to London for a couple of weeks. She leaves tomorrow. You can't tell anyone. She telling Connor now."
Joe wrapped an arm around my shoulders and pulled me close.
"It's ok," he said.
"Here I know something that will take your mind off this."
"And what's that?" I asked
"I really like you Caitlyn. Will you go out with me?"
"Yes, I will go out with you!!!" I wrapped my arms around his neck and gab him a hug. He wrapped his arms around my waist, lifted me off the ground and spun me around.
The rest of the day I was the happiest girl in the world. I decided that I will tell Aislin when she ones back from London.
I hugged Aislin and then she hugged Joe and connor. Her little sisters were crying. She gave each of them extra hug’s. He flight was called and she walked down the terminal.
We all walked over to a giant window and watched her plane take off. Joe and I had kept it low key when we saying goodbye but now he wrapped his arm around my waist as we waved. I wiped away a tear and turned in Joe.
