Chapter 25 ~ Catliyns POV
I walked across the lawn to my house dumbfound. How could've Mr and Mrs. Payne not been there? We heard and saw them. How? I thought.
Maybe Mrs. Payne is cheating on Mr. Sanders with Mr. Payne and some other Dan. I just couldn't stop thinking about it. I decided I needed some fresh air. I texted Steven to see if he wanted to go to the park together. He said that he needed to do something brotherly for/with Aislin.
C:Hey, I need to clear my head wanna go to the park?
S: srry, I gotta do something w/ Aislin.
C: its ok, I understand.
S: thx babe.
C: I love u and I'm so proud of u
S: I love u 2. Talk to u later
C: ttyl <3
I threw my phone down on my bed. I sighed and then day down at my desk. I opened up my computer and wrote. I just let the words flow out of me like a waterfall.
I shut off my laptop and slipped on my shoes. I grabbed my phone and headed to the park. I put in my ear buds and listened to The Phantom of the Opera.
When I arrived I saw Steven standing in the middle of the field and Connor walking away, his back tense. I pretended not to see and sat down on the swings. Steven came up then and started rubbing my shoulders.
"Guess who?" He asked
"Better hope it's not a stranger," I shot back
"Nope, it's just me!"
I smiled and let out a tiny moan as he rubbed a really big knot.
"What are you doing here?" I asked, still pretending to be oblivious to what I saw.
"Well, I'm sure that Aislin wants to tell you this, but my mother is making her move out at the end of June. So, I told Aislin that she needs to sort things out with Connor and she did, by breaking up with him. I decided to be brotherly and stand up for my sister. Even if my mom format want Aislinn to be in her life I want her in mine," Steven told me.
I locked my eyes with his and hugged him. I smiled into his chest and let out a giggle/sob.
"I. Am. So. Proud of you!" I said "you should tell both your mom and Aislin how you feel about them."
We stood there hugging until we decided to walk around and until we had to leave to go back home.
When we arrived at Stevns and Aislin's house we went right up to tell Aislin how Steven felt about her. After that Steven went to face his mom while Aislin and I went into the basement to set up a movie to watch.
"What do you think about Steven?" Aislin asked as I popped some popcorn and she loaded up the movie.
"Well, he's changed. He's not as bad as he used to be. Why? What do you think about him?"
"He's decent. He's turned out to be pretty nice. I mean he actually did something nice slash brotherly today."
"Did I just hear what I think I hear?" Steven asked coming down the stairs.
"Maybe..." I said and Aislin and I burst out into girly giggles.
