Letters to Ryder

3. Lost boy




    Dear Ryder,

        Before you can grow, you must fall in love three time. Once, you must fall in love with your best friend, ruining your friendship forever. This will teach you who your true friends are, and the fine line between friendship and more. Once you must fall in love with someone you believe is perfect. You will learn that not one is perfect, and that you should never be treated as anything less than you deserve. And once, you must fall in love with someone that is exactly like you. This will teach you about who you are and who you want to be. And when you’re through with all that, you learn that the people who care about you the most are the ones that you hurt, and the ones that hurt you are the ones that needed you the most. But most of all you learnt that love is only a concept and is not something that can be defined, it is different to each and every person on this earth, knowing that everyone only wants to be loved.

                                    Love, Daddy


    Today we were heading home and as soon as we got home we would be heading over to the gym for a showcase and then in two days we were getting on a plane and getting ready for the competition. I was more than excited for it. I also loved that we had people recording us for a t.v show. I’ve seen them do it before with other cheer squads so when they asked if we wanted to do it I was more than excited.




    As soon as we landed we went running to the doors. We were sending our luggage home with my brother Jacob so we didn’t need to worry about it. We ran to my car where we jumped in and sped down the street trying to get to the gym as fast as we could. Everyone was already there and should be halfway into practice.

    When we came through the door everyone came running at us and hugged us. They were careful of Ryan.

    “Get working.” I shouted so they could all hear me. We have been preparing for this for months. We would probably be at the gym all night so it’s a good thing that they didn’t have school tomorrow. “Go over the entire routine.” I said and I watched Ryan go into the back office. When she came back out she walked over to me.

    “I’m going to head out to Starbucks.” She said kissing me.

    “Okay get me a caramel frappe please?” I asked and she nodded her head before she headed out the door. Once the girls and guys did the routine perfectly I had them take a little break and they just messed around for a while. I knew that we were ready for the competition.

    “Can we have an interview with you?” One of the producers asked and we went to a corner so they could ask me questions.

    “Do you think the team is ready?”

    “They are more than ready. I think it’s me who’s not ready.” I laughed. “I always get so nervous and they aren’t even nervous so I think I’m the one who needs to relax.” I laughed a little.

    “How is your relationship with Ryan? We talked to the team about it too.” I laughed a little.

    “Me and Ryan have been together since she was fifteen and I was seventeen. We met at school. We are now engaged and we have a baby on the way.” I answered.

    “How did you and Ryan meet?”

    “Well, I had just moved there for my father’s work. We moved around a lot. She was sitting with her friends and a teacher in the morning and I came into the class to see if I had the right place and she was sitting there and I knew the second I saw her that I wanted to be with her.” I was a punk in high school, I’m not going to lie. I was suspended at least four times within the two years that I was there and I had gotten into countless fights. I have tattoos all over my arms,chest and back and I used to have two lip piercings, an eyebrow piercing and i had my left ear pierced.

    “Would you like to see what the guys and girls said about you guys?” I nodded my head before they brought me into a different room to show me.

    “Well, Ryan and Jared never fight. They tell us they fight all the time and they might at home but if they do, they never bring it into the gym. I’m actually so excited because they just recently told us all that they were expecting a baby. They’ve been together for seven years so eventually I knew that they were going to have one.”

    “Do you think they will get married?”

    “Yeah I do. I don’t think they want to right now. I think that they would rather just be themselves for right now. I think that they are a little scared of the married life. Most people are. I think they will be amazing parents and they don’t need to be married to raise that child.” Next they called in a boy named Robert who has only been with us for a few months but Ryan was so in love with him. He was gay so I didn’t need to worry about that but whenever Ryan could, she was with him.

    “What do you think of Ryan and Jared’s relationship?”

    “They are the cutest things ever! I know they are only a few years older than me but I really think that they are my parents. When I first moved here, I lived with them for a while before they decided to move out of Jared’s mom’s house. I still live with his mom and it’s just great. She opened her home to so many of us cheer kids and they just love each other. When we all lived together it was always like one big house party with three of us. It was great.” He always got off topic and I loved that about him. He was an amazing athlete and he made my fiance happy.

    “Where do you think their relationship is going to go?”

    “Well they are expecting a baby and he also just proposed so they are going to have a cute little family and a wedding and I’m so excited for it.” He said smiling.

    “This is hilarious.” I said as it went to a few more people who said the same thing before I heard some yelling and ran out to see what was going on. Ryan was on the floor and some people were surrounding her. As I got closer they were all laughing and she was rolling around. “Can you be careful of our unborn child please?” I asked and she looked up at me before she smiled at me.

    “I can try.” She answered.

    “What’s so funny?” I asked.

    “They were making fun of us and it was just so perfect.” She giggled and I smiled at her while helping her stand up.

    “Okay. Let’s all get back to work.”



    Having to get up at four in the morning wasn’t very fun especially since Ryan woke up puking.

    “We have to go, Babe.” I announced to her as she laid on the couch. I had gotten everything in the car last night. I walked over to her and looked down at her. She looked a lot better than she did before. “Ready?” I asked and she nodded her head.

    “I’m very excited.” She announced before walking out of the house and letting me lock the door before grabbing my hand.

    “Me too.” I answered and kissed her. The last time we were in Florida, we had just gotten back together after that horrible break up. Of course when we were younger Liam brought us nearly everywhere in the U.S every summer for vacation.  

    “I’ve been working on a new song that this girl wrote. It’s about Peter Pan. If the hotel has a piano I will sing it for you.” She said and I smiled at her.

    “Good plan.” I said kissing her and she kissed me back and I rested my hand on her stomach. This is exactly where I need to be for the rest of my life.




    As soon as we walked into the hotel there was a great white grand piano sitting right across from the front doors. I walked over to it and there was a note on it.

    ‘Play me!’ It read and I smiled as I sat down at the bench. I began to sing.

    ‘There was a time when I was alone, no where to go and no place to call home. My only friend was a man on the moon and even sometimes he would go away too.

    ‘Then one night, as I closed my eyes,I saw a shadow flying high,he came to me with the sweetest smile, told me he wanted to talk for a while. He said… Peter Pan, that’s what they call me. I promise that you’ll never be lonely and ever since that day…

    ‘I am a lost boy from Neverland usually hanging out with Peter Pan and when we’re bored we play in the woods. Always on the run from Captain Hook.

    ‘Run run lost boy, they say to me,away from all of reality, Neverland is home to lost boys like me and lost boys like me are free.

    ‘He sprinkled me in pixie dust and told me to believe, believe in him and believe in me. Together we will fly away in a cloud of green, to your beautiful destiny.

    ‘As we soared above the town that never loved me I realized I finally have a family. Soon enough we reached Neverland. Peacefully my feet hit the sand and ever since that day…

    ‘I am a lost boy from Neverland, usually hanging out with Peter Pan and when we’re bored we play in the woods. Always on the run from Captain Hook.

    ‘Run run lost boy they say to me away from all of reality, Neverland is home to lost boys like me and lost boys like me are free.

    ‘Peter Pan, Tinkerbell, Wendy Darling, Even Captain Hook you are my perfect storybook. Neverland I love you so, you are now my home sweet home, Forever a lost boy at last

    ‘Peter Pan, Tinkerbell, Wendy Darling, Even Captain Hook you are my perfect storybook. Neverland I love you so, you are now my home sweet home, forever a lost boy at last… and for always I will say...

    ‘I am a lost boy from Neverland, usually hanging out with Peter Pan and when we’re bored we play in the woods. Always on the run from Captain Hook.

    ‘Run run lost boy, they say to me, away from all of reality. Neverland is home to lost boys like me and lost boys like me are free.

    ‘Neverland is home to lost boys like me and and lost boys like me are free.’ I finished before I heard clapping from all around me and I smiled blushing.

    “It sounded amazing.” Jared said. He had recorded it so we could post it on our youtube channel later. We all headed up to our rooms to get changed and we were all going to head down to the pool. My belly was beginning to show and I was so in love with it. “Ready?” He asked as I grabbed some towels and we headed down to the pool where everyone else was.

    “Is the water warm?” I asked the girls who were stunting in the pool with some younger girls. “And be careful please.” We had some fill in kids. We have a boy named Shane here filling in for one of our boys. We also tried to contact Michael-Eddie from Smoed but of course he had to compete with his own team. We have actually worked with them many times and we are all great friends. We already decided that unless its NCA or Worlds we will not compete against each other unless something happens and we have to.

    “Yeah, it’s really warm.” Robert said and I sat against the edge and put my feet in before Jared came over and sat next to me and rested his hand on my thigh.

    “You look beautiful.” He said smirking at me and I smiled blushing at him.

    “Thank you. You look very handsome.”

    “Nah, baby. I’m sexy.” I laughed throwing my head back and that smirk never left his face. I looked back at him and you know that look that everyone talks about? The one where the guy stares at the girl like she is the entire world? You know? In the movies? Well that’s how he was looking at me and I think I just fell in love again.


    Dear Jared,

        I fell in love with you in high school. I’m not sure how and I’m not sure why I just did. But I don’t even care about what I did. I care about what you did. You fell in love with me too. Of course it’s never easy to be in a relationship but all a relationship is, is being there for each other for support. Thanks for sticking around. Everyone else in my life went away but you, you stayed. I only have you left and I cannot thank you enough for being there. I will never forget the moment I realized I loved you. But it’s so many different times I don’t know which one to use.

     Maybe it was when you walked into that classroom on your first day of school. Maybe it was when you asked me what my name was. Maybe it was the time you said you loved me first and I was too shocked to return it. Maybe it was the day that you took away my innocence and I let you. Maybe it was when you fought my dad to keep me, and you won. Maybe it was when we slept under the stars in the middle of the woods and then the next night we slept on the roof under the stars again. Maybe it was when we created another life together. Maybe it was when you proposed to me in the most unique way ever. Maybe it was when you were the one there to hold me when my mother was taken off those machines and she didn’t survive.

    And maybe we didn’t live exactly like most people did. And usually people get married before they have a baby but we aren’t like other people. I am me and you are you and together we make this perfect person because no one is perfect but everyone is perfect in their own way.

Love, Ryan
