Week two goes a little more smoothly. Although Skyla is acting just a tiny bit strange.
It was Tuesday, they'd come home from school and now we were all eating dinner. I was watching Skyla and noticing that she wasn't really eating. She was showing signs of something, but I didn't know what.
"Skyla, are you alright? You haven't but barely touched your food. You love Beef Stew." I say.
She looks up and all eyes are on her.
"Y-yeah, I'm fine. I guess I'm not really hungry.... Can I please be excused?"
"Yes, you may." I say.
After dinner, Niall helps me with the dishes.
"Niall, Skyla isn't acting like herself." I say.
"I noticed, she wasn't eating... It isn't like her." He says.
"Exactly." I say.
"Maybe you should go talk to her." He says.
"I think you're right." I say drying my hands.
I walk up the stairs and knock on Skyla's door.
"Skyla? Can we talk?" I ask.
"Yes, come in." She says.
I come into her room and sit down on her bed next to her.
"So what's up?" I ask.
"You're not acting like you." I say.
"I'm fine, I don't really wanna talk about it right now... Ok?"
"Ok." I say. "But, if you ever do need to talk about it, please know that I'm there for you, ok?"
"Ok, thanks Mom." She says.
I hug her and then walk back downstairs.
I keep myself busy for awhile and then sit down on the couch next to Niall who's watching a soccer game, football here.
"So?" He asks putting his arm around my shoulders.
"She isn't saying anything." I say.
"Don't worry, she'll tell you in time." He says.
"I hope you're right." I say.
"I know I'm right." He says leaning over and kissing me.
I put my hands around his neck and his wrap around my waist.
"Mmm." I say.
"You like that huh?" He asks.
"Maybe." I say.
He rolls over and gets on top of me.
"Tessa, I love you." He says.
"I love you too." I say.
Later on, we go upstairs to bed and I fall asleep instantly, with Niall's arms around my waist.
