"What happened in here?" I asked, as I entered Jackie's room. "Kyla doesn't like mommy?" She asked. "What?" I asked. "Alright baby. I think it's time we get to bed." Ashley said, picking up jackie. "Goodnight." Ashley said, grabbing my arm, and pulling me out of the room.
"Kyla doesn't like you?" I asked. "It's not important. She just talks a lot." Ashley replied. "Ashley." I said. "Calum. Drop it okay." She snapped. "Ashley. I can't stop it. You're my best friend. I need to know what she meant by that." I said. "Calum. Please. Just drop it." She said.
"Okay, well, can you tell me why you barely touched you food tonight?" I asked. "Calum. Just go home, alright." She said. "No Ashley. Just tell me why you aren't eating!" I yelled. As I yelled, a loud cry sounded through out the house. "Great job. Thanks so much." She said. "I'm sorry," I said. "Just go home to Kyla, Calum. She's probably thinking I'm cheating on ashton." She said. "That's what this is about." I said. "Yes! She wrote a god damn article on it! In my magazine company, Calum! How I am cheating on ashton, with you and Michael!" She yelled, tears coming down her face. "Hey, come here." I said. She walked into my arms, and cried.
"What's going on?" Someone asked. I let go of Calum, and standing in the doorway, is the one and only, Kyla. "Thanks Calum. But, um, I have a family to help. And you have a... That." I said. "Ashley-" "Calum. I told you. Just don't worry anymore." I said. "Ash-" "Calum. Just go home with that." I said. "Why are you-" "Don't worry. Pretty soon, I'll be better looking, and skinnier, that you won't want to see me. So, go home." I said. "Babe... I'll be home in a minute." He said.
"Ashley, I want you to be totally honest with me." He said. "Are you starving yourself?" He asked. I looked down. "Ashley!" He yelled. "I've been hearing you two fight. What the hell is wrong." Ashton said, walking down the stairs. "Babe..." "Ashley, is starving herself." Calum said. Ashton looked at me, and back at Calum. "Calum, go ahead home." Ashton said.
"Sit." Ashton said, pointing to the table in the kitchen. I sat down, and he got out some left over chicken. "Eat." He said. "But-" "I don't want to hear it ash! Eat! Please." He said. I sighed, and took a piece of chicken.
"You have an amazing body Ashley. Don't ever think differently." Ashton said. "But I don't have an amazing body. It's an horrible-" "Ashley. Please. Your body... Is amazing. You had two kids, baby. Two kids. And look at you. You're flawless." He said. "I'm tired." I sighed. "Come on." He said, kissing my head.
I haven't talked to Calum in two days. I've called him, texted him, everything. He didn't answer once. I just gave up hope now. I just stopped caring.
"Girls! Come on! School!" I yelled. "Coming!" Lauren yelled. She came down the stairs, in a low crop top, and denim shorts. "What the hell is that?" Ashton asked. "It's clothes ash." Lauren replied. "Not in my house. Change. Now." He said. I let out a giggle.
"Okay, jackie, I will be at school to pick you up, and get you ready for your play. And Lauren, I will make sure someone will pick you up." I said. "Okay." Lauren replied, sighing. "Ashton, don't forget about Jackie's play tonight. You promised to bring the guys." I said. "I know, I know." He replied. "I'll be back in a little bit." I said, walking out the door.
"Mommy, why aren't you talking to Calum?" Jackie asked. "Shut up jack." Lauren said. They're acting like sisters. I am so happy. "Honey, we will talk about that later. Okay?" I replied.
"Have a good day Lauren." I said. "Kay, bye!" She yelled, closing the door. "It's just you and me kiddo." I said. "Is Calum gonna be there tonight?" She asked. "I don't know, baby." I replied.
"Hey, you all need to come to Jackie's play tonight at school." I said to the guys. "Okay. What time?" Michael asked. "Seven." I replied. "I would love to go, but I... Can't. Kyla and I have plans." Calum said. "Cal, you do know we've been talking about this for months." I said. "I know, but we have plans. So, I can't go." He said. I signed. "We will all be there though." Luke said. I smiled.
"Wow, look at my little Indian worrier!" Ashton said, as he picked up jackie. "No daddy! I'm a Indian princess! Miss. Heather said I can be a princess." She replied. "Well, Princess jackie. Lead the way." He said. She smiled, grabbed his hand, and walked out. Lauren and I following shortly after.
I bucked Jackie in, along with Nicole, and we headed off to the school. "No, father, do not punish him!" Jackie said. "I will not let that happen! I will marry him!" She said. I laughed, shaking my head.
We were all sat down at the school. Michael, Luke, Ashton, Lauren, Annelyy, Brook and I were all seated front row. "Psst. Where's cal?" I asked Michael, who was next to me. "He had plans with Kyla." He replied. Plans? We planned this for months.
"Please welcome our kindergarten class of 2015. The leading role, is the Indian Princess, which is portrayed by, Jaclyn Green." The teacher said. "Without further ado, welcome, Indian Tribe." She said.
The little five and six year olds came out on stage, Jackie leading them. She stood next to another little boy. "Listen up! We have been lead away! By those... Those... People!" The little boy yelled. "They are called travelers, father." Jackie said. The crowd laughed. "Hush, my girl. We will kill them!" The boy yelled.
The whole play was adorable. Jackie played an amazing part. "oh my princess! You did amazing!" I said, as she jumped into my arms. "I couldn't say some words." She said. "But you did fine." I said. She looked around, her smile fading somewhat. "I see daddy, Mikey and Luke. But... No Calum." She said. "I know baby." I said. "Calum doesn't care?" She asked. "I don't know, baby." I replied. the look on her face was so sad. "Calum doesn't care!" She yelled, crying. "No, no baby. He does care." I said. "If he cared.. He would be here!" She said, sobbing into my shoulder. "Oh, baby." I said, kissing her head.
"Mommy I don't like Calum anymore." Jackie said, as I tucked her in. "Now, just because he didnt show up, doesn't mean you have to be mean." I said. "I don't like him mommy." She said. I sighed. "we are going to breakfast tomorrow. Get Some sleep." I said, kissing her head. "Goodnight mommy." She said. "goodnight." I replied.
