"Hey ash." Calum said, walking in with a girl. "Hey, um. Who's this?" I asked, smiling towards the girl. "This is Kyla. She moved in next door a few days ago." He replied. "Great to meet you. Id love to stay and chat, but I have a meeting in, about an hour, so I have to get going." I said, grabbing my keys, and purse. "Jack, I'm going." I said. "When she wakes up, she may want cheese, only one piece. Please." I said. He nodded.
I walked into Lauren's room, and she was still asleep. "Gotta love spring break." I said. I kissed her head, and closed her door. "Make sure you wake-" "Lauren up at ten. I know." Calum said. "And-" "only one piece of cheese. And I know, no one else in the house unless it's the guys." He said. "Good boy." I said, kissing his cheek. "Love you too!" He yelled out the door.
"Nicole, how long until my meeting?" I asked. "About fourth minutes." She said, following me into my office. "Can you get Ashton on the phone, and get me Roselyn." I said. "Yes." She said, walking out. "Oh, and Nicole. Congratulations." I said. "On what?" She asked. "You're baby." I said. "How did you-" "I was there once. I know one when I see one." I said. "Thank you." She said.
"Ashton's on line one!" She yelled. "Thanks!" I yelled back, picking up the phone. "Hey babe." He said. "Hey. I miss you." I said. "I miss you too." He replied. "How's Australia?" I asked. "Amazing. I missed it. I missed my mum, and my friends." He said. I smiled. "That's great babe." I said.
Nicole walked into my office. "Five minutes." She whispered. I nodded. "Hey baby, I have a meeting in about ten minutes. Can I call you when I'm out?" I asked. "Of course. I'll talk to you soon." He said. I smiled, and hung up.
"Ms. Green. So nice of you to join us." My boss said. "I'm sorry I'm late. I was late getting in. My daughter would let go of me." I said. He laughed.
"So, what do you have for is Kaylee?" He asked, the girl across from me. "I have, Calum Hood's mystery girl, big topic. And Ashton Irwin goes to see his girlfriend back in Australia." She said, I stiffened.
"Did you say girlfriend in Australia?" I asked, everyone looked at me. "Yes. He has one." She said. I laughed. "Ms. Green, this isn't not the place." My boss said. "I want to get some facts straight here. Ashton Irwin has one girlfriend, and one girlfriend only. She lives in LA. That's a fact." I said. "Can the fact be proven?" She asked.
"Kaylee, I would-" "fact is proven, because your looking at her." I said. She laughed. "You're Ashton's girlfriend? You. His... Girlfriend!" She said, laughing. "I'm sorry, but I won't stay in this room-" "wait! You're the slut that had a baby at fifteen!" She yelled. "Alright, I had enough." I said getting up.
"Ashley wait." My boss said. "Look, I know she is you niece and all, but that was way out of line. She can't say those things to me." I said. He looked at me, and took my hand in his. "Don't touch me." I said, backing up. "Come on Ashley. Come back in the meeting." He said. "Why? So I can get tormented by your niece?" I asked, as I shut my office doors.
"What's wrong?" Kyla asked, as I got off the phone. "Ashley is coming home early, she said there was too much stress going on at work, and she couldn't handle it." I replied. "Laur, Jackie. Come here." I said. The girls came running into the living room. "Alright, mums coming home early. Lauren, I want you to keep an eye on her." I said. "Why can't you?" She asked. "Kyla, can you go play with Jackie?" I asked, she nodded.
"Lauren, Ashley is very stressed out. She had a bad day at work." I said. "Oh." She said. I nodded. "So, I want you to watch her. If I can, I will. But with Ashton gone, I don't want anything to happen." I said. She nodded.
Ashley walked in the door, with red puffy eyes. "Come here." I said, opening my arms. She ran to me, and cried into my chest. "Ssh. It's okay. Come on. Let's get you changed, and into bed." I said, walking to her room. She sat on her bed, expressionless.
"My boss has feelings for me." She said. "He tried to kiss me." She said. I stopped what I was doing. "He what." I said. "He tried to kiss me when I went into my office. He walked in, and tried to kiss me." She said. She started crying again. "Okay. Okay. Lay back. Come on." I said, laying her back.
"Babe, you have to sleep." I said. "H-how can I sleep, when I know my boss has feelings for me? And when Ashton apparently has another girlfriend." She said. "He doesn't have another girlfriend." I said. She looked at me. "I know." She said, crying. "Honey." I said, hugging her. "I love you Calum." She said. "I love you too. Please get sleep. You didn't sleep at all yesterday." I said. She nodded, and laid back. Within five minutes, she was passed out cold.
"You're really good with her." Kyla said, as I sat on the couch. "Ashton told me to step up, and be the dad while he's gone, so, this is usually what he does." I replied. "Calum. Is mom home?" Jackie asked. "Yes, but she is sleeping." I said. "No shes not, I went in her room, and she wasn't there." She said. "Shit!" I yelled, running down the hallway.
"Ashley! Ashley! Open up!" I yelled, banging on the door. "Ashley!" I yelled. The door opened, and a crying Ashley sat on the floor. Although, I didn't see exactly what I was planning on seeing. Instead of blades and blood, I saw tissues, and a pregnancy test.
