"Ash." Ashley said, throwing her hand on my stomach. "Mhm." I said, waking up. "Can you wake up Jackie?" She asked. "Sure." I said, getting up.
"Jackie. Jackie." I said. "Just a little longer." She said. "You have school. Come on." I said, picking her up. She wrapped her arms around my neck, and put her head on my shoulder.
"I want cheese!" Jackie yelled. "Cheese?" I asked. She nodded. "How about I make you-" "Yo!" Mike yelled. "In here!" I yelled.
"Thanks for waking me up ash." Lauren said, walking out in jeans and a crop top. "W-what is that?" Mikey asked. "Um. My outfit?" She questioned. "I don't think so. Change." Mike said. "Yes brother." She replied. I laughed. "Dad! Where's my cheese!" Jackie yelled. "Right here baby. Mike, can you wake up Ashley? And make sure Lauren is ready for school?" I asked. He nodded.
I put on a baggy shirt over the crop top I was wearing. "Laur, are you decent?" Mikey asked. "Yeah, you can come in." I replied. "I didn't mean put on a freakin guy shirt." He said. I laughed. "Alright, then what should I wear?" I asked, sitting on my bed. "Here. This is cute?" He said, holding up a dress. I laughed. "Mikey. That's a dress." I said. "Alright, oh! Here!" He said. "Eh. I guess." I said, taking the orange shirt from him.
"Ashley. Ash." Someone said, shaking me. "Just a little longer." I whined. "You have work in thirty minutes. Remember. Your new job." He said. "I'm up!" I yelled, sitting up. "Whoa." He said. "Michael!" I yelled, throwing the blankets over my bra. "I'll um. Give you some... Um. Privacy." He said.
"Laur! Let's go!" I yelled. "Coming!" She yelled. "Jackie, say bye to mom." I said. "Bye mom!" She yelled. "Good luck babe." I said kissing her.
"Hi, I'm-" "Ashley green. Great pleasure to meet you." The young girl said. "Oh, sorry, I'm Nicole. Nicole Hartford. Your assistant." She said. "This office is amazing." I said. She smiled. "So, am I like, your boss?" I asked. She nodded. "Wow." I said. "My sister loves your boyfriend." She said.
"So, here's the latest magazine gossips." Nicole said, handing me a paper. "All you need to do this, get all of these gossips, into a magazine. There's different genres, so, which ever one is kind of kiddy, it goes into these magazines." She said. "Okay. Thanks." I said.
My office phone rang, and Nicole came on the phone. "Ashley, you have visitors." She said. "I'll be right there." I said. I grabbed my blazer, and walked out my office.
"Mom!" Jackie yelled, running to me. "Hey baby." I said, picking her up. "Hey ash." Lauren said. "Where's your brother?" I asked. "Oh, he's coming." She said.
Ashton walked through the fifth floor doors, with his hair messy, and his shirt messed up. "Well don't you look lovely." I said. "Mike decided it would be funny to play a game. Called undress the Ashton." He said. I couldn't help but laugh.
"Come on into my office." I said, guiding them in. "Oh, Nicole, if you don't mind, can I get some water?" I asked. "Of course. Bottled?" She asked. "please." I said. She nodded.
"This is awesome babe." Ashton said. "I know. And if you look at the name on the fifth floor, it says green and co." I said. He smiled. "Hey, so, I brought up my grade! I even got a 100 on my lit test." Lauren said. "Honey, that's great." I said.
"Ashley, your boss is here to meet you." Nicole said. "Okay, you can send him in." I said. "Ashley green, pleasure to meet you." My boss said. "Hi." I said. He was gorgeous. Blue eyes. Brown hair. Tall. Slim. Just, wow. "Oh, this is my family. My boyfriend, Ashton. My daughter Jaclyn, and Ashton's sister Lauren." I said. "Pleasure to meet you all." He said.
"Mom." Jackie said. "Yes honey." I said. "At school today, we wrote about someone special. And I was gonna say you, but I said Lauren." She said. "That's great, why don't you read it." I said. "I'm sorry, shes five." I said. "I have a five year old too. I understand." He said. I smiled.
"My dad's sister, Lauren is the best. She is like my sister. She loves me, shes the best. She helps my mom, and me. Shes funny, pretty, nice, and the best person. I love her a lot." Jackie yelled. "That's great honey." I said. Jackie smiled. "Thanks kiddo." Lauren said. "I think we are finally a family." I said. "Babe, we um. Need to talk." Ashton said.
Possibly in the next few chapters, new characters will appear, and new things will show up. Like, new scenes, new places, new people, new settings, new problems for Ashley to get through. It will get interesting.
