"Momma." Nicole said, walking to me. I picked her up, and sat her on my lap. "Hi Nic." Nicole said. Nicole smiled, and waved. I'm actually staying at Nicole's house. She said she doesn't mind having us here.
The doorbell rang, and I got up. "I got it." I said. Nicole nodded. I put Nic down on the ground, and she ran to the table, her curly hair waving around.
"What are you doing here." I said bluntly. He followed me into the kitchen. "I came to apologize." He replied. "So, after two weeks you want to apologize. That makes sense." I said. "Ashley, please, I'm sorry. Truth is, I can't handle three kids. That's why I always push you away." He said.
"Ever since you left, I couldn't stop thinking about you." He said. "We always fall apart when we have a new baby." I sighed. "Then no more." He said. "If I have to stop making babies, to keep a relationship strong, so be it." He said. I smiled.
"Feels good to be back home." I said. Ashton smiled, and kissed my cheek. "Did Lauren tell you?" He asked. I sighed, but nodded. "I mean, she's fourteen. She's having these guys over, every day." He said. "That sounds like Rachel." I replied.
"What about me?" Someone asked. "Rachel?!? Why are you doing here?!" I asked. "I'm living with dad again. And I came to visit." She replied. "Oh." I sighed.
We all sat at the table. Plates in front of us, food on the table. But no one ate. "Why aren't we eating?" Ashton asked. "Not hungry." Lauren said. "Me either." Rachel replied. They both sounded really angry.
"Someone better tell me what is going on." I said. "My boyfriend cheated on me! With her!" Rachel yelled. "I didn't know he was your boyfriend!" Lauren yelled. "Of course you didn't! You sleep with everyone! You slut!" Rachel yelled.
"Both of you! Shut up." I said. "You, do not call Lauren a slut." I said, pointing to Rachel. "And you, you think it's okay to have boys over, and sleep with them? It's not okay." I said. Lauren sighed.
"I want one of you in Jackie's room. And one in Nicole's room." I said. "What! Why!" They both yelled. "You two need to be separated." I said. Ashton nodded. They got up, and walked up the stairs.
I know it's a short chapter. I didn't really know what to write.
