When Lolly and Cat got back from their outing, I decided to clean a bit of Calum's room while he was in the shower. I place his clothes on his hangers and threw away some scrunched up paper. Suddenly a old wrinkled picture caught my gaze.
I picked it up and stared at the three little kids in the picture. There was a girl and two boys. Suddenly the door opened.
"Hey Ruth, have you seen my ph-" Lolly walks in than stares down at the picture in my hand.
"Why do you have that picture?" She walks towards me staring closer into the picture.
"I just found it on th-" She cuts me off.
"Do you know about what happened between Ashton, Cat and Luke 9 years ago?" Lolly asks me with a stern look.
"What are you talking about?" I give her a confused look.
"If you don't know what I'm talking about, than where did you get this picture from?" She asks snatching the picture I found laying around Calum's floor.
"I found it on Calum's floor" I shrug.
"Ruth. Your a great person but make sure you or Calum doesn't show this picture to Cat" She gives me a serious look.
"But why? I'm really confused right now. Whats going on?" I started becoming nervous like a serial killer is gonna jump out of no where and stab me with a cereal. What? I have weird thoughts...
"Ruth, if I tell you this, promise me that you won't tell Cat or bad things will happen to her and us"
I hesitated for a bit until I finally nodded my head.
"Ok... Cat, Ashton and Luke used to b-" She gets cut off by Calum who just got out of the bathroom.
"Hey! Get out!" He yells at Lolly while tightening his grip on the towel around his waist.
"Fine. Jeez woman" Lolly rolls her eyes walking out of the room as I ran after her.
"Please tell me" I pleaded. I can't take someone about to tell me something really interesting than gets cut off.
"Lolly! Can you help me ready dinner!" Cat yells from downstairs.
"I'll tell you next time. I promise" She gives me a small smile before running downstairs.
I started becoming really curious. Whats she hiding from Cat? Why is Luke part of this even though he just came here a month ago? What happened 9 years ago? Who is Ashton? Who is Luke? And most importantly. Who is Cat? What happened to her past. All I know about her is her favourite things, age and name obviously.
Who is Cat Jones?
Once I got home, I searched up this family tree website I saw during an ad on the TV.
I typed Jones on the family search tab.
So many people popped up. I kept on scrolling down until it got to the letter 'C'. Once I found Catarina Jones I clicked on it. I researched all her ancestors. I may sound like a stalker but I'm really curious. Suddenly I found her parents.
Trina and Christian Jones.....
They both died on the 20th of October 1998. Cat's 2nd birthday..... Than how come Cat said that she still has one real mom? But that has nothing to do with Luke Nor Ashton. Thats when I scrolled down to the year 2005.... Which was 9 years ago...
