62. Chapter Sixty Two

I know I said all the characters are in place and will stay, but I changed my mind. I promise you, this is the last time the characters will change. Because this story is still developing in my head, I've obviously made lots of changes to how I foresee the characters, and the people playing Talia and Jason aren't making me see them for how I want them to. So, here we go. Character change. Keep in mind, not all the characters are changing.

AnnaSophia Robb as Natalia Grey

Dylan O'Brien as Jason Summers

Chris Sheffield as Jackson Phillips

Leo Howard as Nick Amadilla

Samantha Boscarino as Amber York

Mia Talerico as Macey Grey

Jessica Alba as Taylor Klein

Jensen Ackles as Cile Grey

James Franco as Zac Klein

Zoey Deutch as Adelaide Spence

Teresa Palmer as Bria Clark

Alex Pettyfer as Addison Clark

Minka Kelly as Sally Clark(Jason's Aunt)

Chris Evens as Mike Clark(Jason's Uncle)

This is the last the characters are changing. I wasn't happy with who played who, which is why I chose the characters I did now. I hope you're all happy with them as I am. Time for vacation!

So, a little about this chapter: it is based on my whole vacation. Besides the amount of people, the amount of cars, and the penthouse, everything is based on it, which is why it's going to take me so long to write, because it is based on my vacation:) just to give a little glimpse of what my vacation was like. I hope you all enjoy this chapter, and I hope you all get to do this one day, come to Miami and do everything I'm doing:)

Day One:

Natalia's POV

"Flight eighty-nine C is now boarding. Group A, you may start boarding." The voice on the intercom announced. I held onto Jason's arm tighter, as I felt the butterflies flutter in the pit of my stomach. Flying has never been the ideal way to travel for me. If I could drive to Miami, I would definitely make that drive. Ever since I was a little girl, flying just.... Made me nervous and scared, especially now with everything going on in the world.

"Okay, people are going to have to sit by themselves. Uncle Mike and I have the emergency exit seats, and Talia, your mom, and dad have the other exit seats. And where the seating goes from there, it's all on the tickets." Sally informed.

"I have the seat next to you," Jason informed, squeezing my waist. I nodded and let out a deep breath of air. Having Jason by my side is going to make me so much calmer. Also, the pills I took for the motion sickness will also take its part.

"Jase, I have next to you," Poppy informed, putting her arms around Jason's neck. He held onto her hands with one hand, and the other hand held onto my waist, holding me tightly as we waited for the other passengers to be seated.

"Talk about chinsey seating," I whispered, lowering my head to get into the window seat.

"It'll do for now. It's only a two-hour flight." Jason replied, plopping next to me. We watched as poppy tried to put her carry on in the cubby, as she struggled. "Poppy, just sit down."

"Ow." He whispered as he bumped his head on the ceiling. I held in my laugh, as I watched him slide between the seats, trying to get to Poppy. I know most girlfriends would be pissed if their boyfriend is helping someone else out that's not them, but the thing will all of us, that makes us different? We're all close to each other. We all help out each other. I lean on Jackson to help me, and my friends lean on Jason to help them. Nick, well, Nick just isn't one to lean on. Jason sat next to me once again and buckled his seat belt.

"You got it?" He asked as I struggled.

"Yeah." I replied, as my shaky hands held the seat belt.

"Babe, calm down." After a few minutes, the luggage was all on the plane, all the passengers were on and settled, and the plane was just moving onto the runway. I took deep breaths, as the plane started to heat up. Jason put his hand in mine, and I squeezed it tightly. My head was jerked back, as the plane sped down the runway, making my grip tighter on Jason's hand. My mouth fell open, as we lifted into the air, my chest heaving and my eyes closed with Jason's hand clasped in mine.

"You did great." Jason smiled, kissing my temple. I breathed out deep breaths, each time the plane turned. "Just relax."

"Oh, I'll be asleep soon, once those pills come into play," The rising sun beamed in my eyes, as I looked out the window. It's tough to keep your eyes open at six in the morning, after getting no sleep in the hotel room last night and having to wake up at three in the morning. We're all gonna be passed out.

 

"Did we rent cars?" Addison asked, pushing his head forward, pushing between Jason and me.

"Yes. We have an SUV for you guys and we have a mini van. Dad is driving your car. Bria can't drive it." Sally replied. Addison nodded and carried his suitcase.

"Are you sure you got those?" I asked.

"Yes, now stop," Jason replied, shushing me quickly.

"I can carry my own bags. Please, let me carry them."

"I'm being a gentleman, now, shush." 

"Wait, mom, you have a mini van?" Bria asked, putting her head on my shoulder.

"Yeah, I figured a Nissan wouldn't do, because we have too many people. So, we can fit more people in the car." Sally replied. Bria nodded and put her arm around my shoulder.

"Make sure my baby cousin doesn't knock you up in the room." She whispered.

"I'll make sure that won't happen."

"I just know how much you want a little one, so, just checking up."

"Oh my god, stop."

"Addison, will you come help your father please," Sally said, before walking to the aisle with the minivans. "You guys follow us. We can take four people." 

"We'll go." Christina volunteered.

"We will?" Nick asked.

"Yes, along with Ab and Joe. Let's go." She replied, pushing her sisters in front of her. They walked away with Sally, with Nick complaining about going with my parents and Jason's Aunt.

"I get the window seat!" I exclaimed, opening the car door.

"You always get the window seat," Amber complained.

"No I don't, you're just slow," I replied, buckling my seat belt. Jason climbed in next to me, and then Poppy next to him. Addison, Amber, and Jackson all piled in the back of the car, and Bria sat in the front.

"Your parents aren't that bad, Talia," Bria said, turning her head towards me.

"Not now. They usually are."

"Are you an only child, Talia?" Mike asked, looking in the rear view mirror. Just like I thought, I've never met Mike. He apparently works for some company where he has to travel, and the day they had Addison's birthday, he was away in London.

"No, I have two younger siblings."

"Yeah, and she's practically raising them," Addison said.

"And her little brother is adorable. Makes me want one of my own." Bria smiled.

"Watch it," 

"Yeah, you gotta actually find someone, and not sleep around with random guys after getting wasted at clubs," Addison said.

"Excuse me?" Mike asked.

"Mom knew, I swear."

"I really need to be around more." 

"There's always one in the family, right dad? And Bria is that one who's fucked up." Addison smirked.

"Alright, your sister is not messed up, Addison. She's... Unique. And don't use the language when I'm in the car."

"Anyway, Talia, what do you wanna do in college?" Mike asked.

"I wanted to get a business degree, but now I don't know anymore," Jason looked at me with wide eyes.

"What else would you wanna do?"

"I don't know if I'm feeling college anymore. I think I have more to look forward to, you know?"

"Hmm." 

"I would've liked to go to NYU, but maybe brown, or community college,"

"My sister went to NYU." He smiled.

"Yeah, my dad went there. It's always been a dream of mine to go to NYU, and follow in my dad's footsteps." 

"Is that your dad with us?"

"Um, sort of, I guess. He's my stepdad. They just got married." I replied, as Jason's hand squeezed my thigh.

"He's a nice guy."

"Yeah, I guess. He's cool, and strict when he needs to be." 

"Your dad is Nathaniel Grey, right?"

"Yeah, how do you know?"

"I read about him in the paper. I also read about your uncle."

 "Oh,"

"Yeah, Uncle Mike, she doesn't usually like to talk about that stuff." Jason interrupted.

"Alright, it's alright. We're here anyways."

I looked out the window and gasped. "Oh my god," I whispered, amazed by how it looked.

"Alright, kids," Mike said, keeping the keys in the ignition and jumping out of the car. He opened the hatch, and took out the luggage, while the valet guy waited for all of us.

"Thanks, man." Addison nodded to him. The guy nodded, and hopped in the car.

"Holy shit," Jackson said as we walked into the hotel. My jaw dropped in shock, as we looked around. Big gold chandeliers hung from the high ceiling, and big rounded white couches were displayed all over the lobby, as well as tables and chairs.

"You guys wait here and I'll go check us in," Sally informed, dropping her suitcase on the floor. We all nodded, and just kept looking around.

"We should've gotten rooms, not a penthouse for you kids. It's very risky." My mom said, putting her hand on her forehead.

"Mom, calm down. It's supposed to be a vacation, where we have fun and be risky

"Not after the conversation we had yesterday, you're not being risky. You're my child, and I say what you do and don't do. And you will not be risky. I don't care who you're with." 

"Just go check out the guys at the pool, mom," I grumbled.

"Excuse me?"

"You heard me. We all know it's true. Under those sunglasses, you're eyeing down the prize."

She narrowed her eyes at me and nodded her head. "This trip is a gimme for you, do you understand? You are on this trip, because of me. In fact, you are on this earth, because of me. And about the whole, eyeing down the prize. I don't know what that's about, but let me tell you something. I am a loyal wife. I have never looked at one man when I was with your father, nor Zac. But I would think you would be the one who looks at the other guys around this place." 

"Okay, that's enough," Jason said, stepping in front of me. My hands shook in anger, as Jason pulled me away from my mom.

"I'm gonna kill her, I swear."

"Stop, stop it." He said, holding me back. "Calm down. Breathe."

"I swear, I'm going to kill her on this trip. That was the last straw. If she thinks I'll follow her rules, she's shit out of luck."

"Okay, okay. Stop." He said. I calmed down a bit and nodded. "You good now?" 

"Yeah," I replied. He nodded and led us back over to the group. Sally, now stood by the group, with room keys in her hands.

"Holy shit," Jason said, letting my hand go. I looked up at the ceiling, and then around the room. I saw Bria run to the couch, and jump on the white couch.

"I'm afraid to sit." I laughed, walking to the couch. Jason nodded and kept staring around.

"This is a big up, from where we live," Christina said, holding onto her sister's shoulders.

"My mom would die here." Jackson laughed.

"What was that whole thing with your mom, T?" Jackson asked, turning his head to me.

"I don't know. She's just so moody, and she doesn't let me live."

"Yeah, she wouldn't let Lia go on birth control." Amber chimed in.

"Seriously?"

"She said, it was enough Jason was staying with us, but birth control is too much. And then, if I took one pill, she would ban me from seeing him." His eyes widened.

"Should we chose our rooms?" I asked, changing the subject.

"I want the one with the balcony!" Amber exclaimed.

"Can't, already called it when we booked the trip."

"Every time!" Amber yelled.

"Okay, so, I'm thinking we should have all the couples care a room, and then Poppy and Addison share a room and Abi, Joely and Bria share a room," Amber said.

"I'm down," Poppy said.

"Oh dear," I whispered, turning to the stairs.

"Are you sure you're okay with sharing a room with Poppy?" I asked as Addison and I walked to the rooms.

"Perfectly fine. She's hot, so yeah. But there are two beds so everything works out fine."

"You guys and chasing girls."

"Babe, get the door." Jason groaned. I ran to the door and opened it up, seeing Jason struggling with the bags. "There's so many stairs." He breathed, out of breath.

"Big bad football player can't climb some stairs with a few bags?"

"You try going up those stairs with two bags."

I smiled and put my arms around his neck. "And I love you for going up those stairs."

"Hey, your aunt just called us, she said we should get ready for lunch," Jackson said. Jason nodded, and let go of me.

"Time for some lunch." He smiled, rubbing his stomach.

 

"Okay, so, Adelaide said she's coming now," Sally informed, taking a bite of her salad.

"Oh, she is? I thought she couldn't fly because of Sapphire?" Bria asked.

"She's driving, on her way last night. She should be here soon."

"Oh, okay. Is she staying with us then?" Addison asked.

"That's all up to her. If you guys have an extra room, I'm sure it'll be fine." 

"I get to see the baby," Jackson said, pinching my sides.

"She's adorable."

"Really?"

"Yeah, the cutest baby I've ever seen,"

"I thought Leo was cute," Amber added.

"Leo is cute when he was little. And now he's all grown up." I replied, pulling my sunglasses up over my head. She rolled her eyes.

"And that means we can have people go with them in the car," Addison said. I nodded and leaned my head on Jason's shoulder.

"Tired?" I nodded.

"We woke up early this morning."

"And it sucked."

"How is everything over here?" Our waiter asked, pulling his hands in front of him.

"Delicious, thank you." My mom smiled.

"Here we go," I mumbled, rolling my eyes.

"Natalia." Zac warned. I huffed and rolled my eyes once more.

"Should we walk around a little, guys?" Sally asked, pushing her chair in the table.

"I don't care," Bria replied, pulling her hair up into a bun.

"I don't mind," Jason said, as I too, put my hair into a bun. We walked into the heart of Miami beach, with our sunglasses on, hair up, and shorts rolled up. The boys mostly had their sleeves rolled up, as well as shorts.

"It feels like a hundred degrees out here." Bria groaned, fanning herself with her hand.

"Yeah, mom, it's really hot," Addison added.

"I know guys, we have ten blocks to go until we get to the car. Can we all make it?" I nodded. Sure enough, ten blocks later, we all stood in the parking garage.

"Dad, turn on the car! I'm dying!" Bria yelled.

"Alright, alright." He sighed, starting the car. Once started, we all piled in, feeling the cold air on our bodies. In the car, this time, I was in the middle of Jason and Addison, who both had their arms around my shoulders.

"How old are your siblings, Talia?" Mike asked. 

"Macey is four and Zack is five months."

"Zack is the cutest and chubbiest baby." Jason chimed. 

"You? Calling a baby cute? I never thought I would see the day."

"He's cute, okay? I think I made a big impact on his life."

"An impact? Talia, make sure he doesn't grow up screwing random girls all over town."

"Bria Michelle, enough. Stop antagonizing your cousin." Mike said.

"Yeah, Bria Michelle."

"You're starting too? I can ground you, I have permission. Always did, always will." Jason looked down.

"Wait, Addison, what's your middle name?" I asked.

"I don't wanna talk about it." He mumbled. "It's Carter. Addison Carter Clark. And Ade's is Jessica." 

"Bri!" Addison yelled, hitting the back of her head.

"Ow! Dad!" She yelled, smacking Addison's hand.

"Enough, from both of you! I don't wanna hear another peep!"

 "Dickhead," Bria mumbled.

"Whore."

"Enough," Mike said.

Day Two:

Jason's POV

Talia rolled over next to me and took a deep breath. "The bus picks us up at 9:10, and it's eight now," I said. She groaned and put her head on my chest. "I know, but this thing seems cool," I said, rubbing her back.

"Alright." She whispered, getting up, her shorts riding up her thighs. I pulled another pair of shorts on, and a shirt pushed my hair back and nodded. Talia wouldn't talk to me all last night, due to me talking to her about her mom. She fought me on saying her mom is just a lying and cheating skank, but I fought her back telling her no matter what, she's her mom, and she's right to not want her to do anything she wouldn't do. Of course, that turned into a fight. But after we finally settled down, we made up, and talked more, which made us have only about four hours of sleep. And when Talia doesn't sleep, she is cranky. Which is what she is now.

"To the Everglades!" Jackson yelled, running into our room.

"Yeah, whooh." I replied, flipping my sunglasses on.

"What crawled up your ass?"

"Nothing." 

"Talia, babe, let's go!" I yelled, banging on the bathroom door.

"Coming!" She replied, unlocking the door. She walked out, and kissed me. I held her by the waist and pulled away.

"What was that for?"

"I don't know, I just love you."

 "Well." We all met downstairs in the lobby, with Aunt Sally and Uncle Mike sitting on the couch along with Talia's parents.

"It's about time. I was about to send your father up to get you all." Sally said, standing up.

"Sorry." Addison said, sitting down.

"Okay, we have bug spray, sunscreen, hats, phone cases, is there anything I'm missing?" Aunt Sally asked. I shook my head. "Okay, Adelaide is coming after the tour, so we should go in the pool when we get back." I nodded.

"Everglades tour?" A guy who didn't speech English well asked.

"Yes." Aunt Sally smiled.

"Mike, party of... Fifteen?"

"That's us." Uncle Mike said.

"Follow me. The bus is outside." We all piled into the bus. Two seats, for fifteen people. Talia and I, Jackson and Amber, Abi and Joely, Addison and Poppy, Bria all by herself, Nick and Christina, then the parents sat on in the front.

"We have seven more stops to make, and then we will be on our way to the Everglades tour." The tour guide said, before sitting down, and letting us go on our own.

 

"Welcome to the Everglades. Are we gonna have a good time!?" Our tour guide yelled. Everyone cheered, which wasn't many, considering we took up most of our boat. "Alright, I have fifteen hundred horsepower, and I want to use it. So, I need you all to be as loud as you can, and wear the ear plugs provided." He informed. Talia leaned over to me and entwined our fingers.

"He's creepy." She whispered.

"He's making me feel weird." I laughed.

"Me too." She replied, putting her head on my shoulder.

"Alright, here we go! You can stand up and look around right now, I'll let you all know when we're going fast." The guide said, starting his boat.

"Alligator to your left!" He yelled. I looked to the left and nodded.

"Awesome." I said. Talia kept her hands in mine, as we kept going around the Everglades ever so slowly. Then, the guide told us to sit down. Which is when it started getting fun.

He turned, and sped up, then turned again, making everything go to the left side, and then, stopped the boat. "How's it going so far?" He asked. We all cheered, and Talia squeezed my hand. "A little about the Everglades... When the Indians lived here, they lived in these small islands, which is called a Hammock, and when they lived in these hammocks, they would survive on the alligator and this plant right here." He said, pointing to a plant behind him.

"This plant feeds both human and animals. The alligator eats it, as well as the snakes and the Indians did as well. At the bottom of the plant, all the nutrients are there, which provide proteins to the body. When the Indians would be here, it's where the alligator fighting came into play. They would tackle the alligator for their tail, so it would be their only source of meat, which they needed. The water we are in, right now, was considered their drinking water. They would drink this water because it would be the only thing there for them. In fact, the water we shower in, drink, swim, is all from the Everglades. Everything you've seen that's water here, is from this place right here."

"Are there any questions?" He asked.

"You said snakes. What kind?" Bria asked.

"Just anacondas." He replied. She nodded and looked around. "Alright, we're gonna keep going, keep a look out for some alligator." 

"Jase." Talia said, pointing next to me. I nodded and took a picture of the alligator next to me.

"This reminds me of some Syfy shit." She nodded and sat down as the guide told us to sit.

"Guys, I hope you enjoyed this tour as much as I did. I am honored to be your tour guide, and I hope you all comeback." The tour guide smiled, before pulling into the dock. "Your show will start in about ten minutes, so start walking to your left."

At the show, there were three alligators inside a fence, and a guy holding a snake at the front. "Take your seats, I want to start soon." He informed. We went all the way to the side of the stage, almost a perfect view of everything.

"Hello, everyone. My alligators here are one of the smartest alligators we have here. Not only are they big, but they are smart. They know their names and when to eat." He informed, going into the cage.

"He's crazy." Talia said, shaking her head.

"Never in a million years." I said. She nodded and tried to focus on the show in front of us. The guy fed every alligator, with their mouths pressing down hard, so we were able to actually hear the chomp they had on the fish. "It's amazing." Talia nodded.

"Alligators are actually blind, believe it or not. If you put a stick in front of their face, they will not see it," he said, putting a stick in front of the alligator's face. "But, if you touch their mouth or anywhere on their body.." He said, lightly tapping the alligator's mouth. It opened, then clamped shut. "And that's why we use a stick." After the show, we made our way back to the bus.

"We have a boat ride after this of all the mansions, so." Aunt Sally informed. Talia gasped as her eyes shined.

"Do you know what I realized?" Amber asked, turning to us. I looked up with raised eyebrows.

"French people, are really rude. Like, they just push everyone out of their way to get where they're going. And they don't even listen. Like, the guide told the one guy to take his hat off like seven times, but he never did, did he? Blocking my view, shit head." I laughed and shook my head.

The bus took off, getting us away from the Everglades, and to Bayside, which is where the tour was, apparently. Talia still sat next to me, with her face pressed against the window, and her hand on my lap.

"What's up?" I asked, putting my head on her shoulder.

"Nothing." She smiled, turning her head back to me.

"You sure?"

"Mhm." 

"Are you not having fun?" I asked, pushing her hair around her back.

"What? No, no. I am. This is fun."

"Okay, just making sure. I don't want you to be bored."

"Don't worry about me."

"This about your mom?" I asked, dropping my voice to a whisper.

"No, has nothing to do with my mom. Jason, I promise, I'm fine." She reassured. I nodded, and kissed her shoulder blade.

 

Natalia's POV

"Welcome to the Island Queen. My name is Danny, and I am your very single tour guide." Our tour guide introduced. I laughed and sipped my water. "So, I have two rules on this boat. One is, do not stand by the stairs. I do not want to see anyone gets hurt, nor do we want a lawsuit." I laughed slightly. "And two, when seeing the mansions, please don't stand. Everyone has to see, and if you're standing, you are blocking their way. And that's it, guys!" He smiled, as we pulled out of the dock.

"To your right, that yacht is fifty-five million dollars, which costs more than my lifetime." He informed.

"Hey, mom." Addison said, putting his hand on my lap, to look over to his mom. She pushed her head out and turned to him. "We should get that."

"What I give you isn't enough? And plus, we don't have fifty-five million dollars. Keep dreaming. Maybe, if you actually go to college and get a job, then you can pay for one yourself." He pursed his lips and turned back to look at the view.

"Need some ice for that burn?" Jason asked, with a smile.

"Shut up, what are we twelve?" Addison replied, rolling his eyes, and then sticking up his middle finger. 

"Alright, to your left, we have the rich and the famous, Ricky Martin. This is his only house, and he is living the viva loca right here." Danny informed. Jackson clapped his hands and moved them around. I blushed crimson red, as I remembered the night at the beach with the group, and Amber played his song for me to do my dance to. The only song I've ever known to dance to like that.

"This big White House with the yacht in front of it. Yeah, that's David Beckham's house."

Amber and I both looked to each other. "He's so hot!" We both yelled.

"He's like forty." I shrugged. We passed houses like, Will Smith, P-Diddy, The Adams Family House, and some really nice rich houses, which Danny said, just belonged to rich people. Gotta love Miami. Once off the boat, we made our way to the bus, which would take us back to the hotel. But when we got to the lot, the double-decker was gone, but a white bus was parked.

"Fountaine Bleu?" The driver asked.

"Yes." Sally replied.

"This bus will take you." He said.

"Thank you." She smiled, climbing onto the bus. We switched up the seating this time. Instead of Jason sitting next to me, Addison did, and Jason sat next to Poppy. It made me a little jealous, but I know Jason, and I know he's probably throwing daggers into Addison's back for sitting here with me. After about five minutes, the bus started moving, and I couldn't be more happy, to just go back to the room and lay in bed. Because Adelaide is coming, we made room for her to stay, which just involved moving out suitcases out of the fifth room. If I'm honest, I can't wait to see Adelaide because she has Sapphire.

Once at the hotel, we all made our way to the elevators. With my feet burning, and my head pounding, I just slumped against the wall of the elevator. I held my hand to my head and rubbed it a little, before taking a deep breath.

"You okay?" Jason asked. I nodded with my closed eyes. He rubbed my back, trying to calm me down a bit. "We're here." He whispered, helping me up.

I noticed a stroller in the middle of the floor in the penthouse, and I automatically knew who was here. "Adelaide's here." I smiled, walking to the stairs. Jason and Addison followed behind me, going to meet their family member at their room.

"Hi!" I smiled, hugging Adelaide tightly.

"Hey." She laughed, hugging me back, just the same amount of strength.

"Oh yay, my dearest little brother." She groaned.

"Oh, you love me."

"Too bad you're right."

"My little sister!" She exclaimed.

"You're older by two minutes!"

"Still, I'm older." Bria rolled her eyes, and huffed, before pulling Adelaide into her arms.

"Hi." I smiled, lifting Sapphire up. She held onto my shirt for dear life, as I rocked her back and forth. "She got so big." I smiled, kissing her hair.

"I know. Four months already. Can you believe it?" Adelaide asked. I shook my head and continued to hold her.

"So, what's been going on?" Adelaide asked, once everyone left to go to the pool.

"Absolutely nothing."

"No babies?"

"Again, I'm seventeen." She shrugged, and twisted the top of the bottle to feed Sapphire.

"How'd you come up with Sapphire?"

"If you haven't noticed, our names are unique, so I wanted hers to be too. I mean, you hear of girls who are named Bria, or Brianna, but you don't usually hear of a guy named Addison. And you never hear the name, Sapphire. So I wanted her to be original, so when she grows up, she won't be like everyone else. She'll be her original self." I smiled.

"So, they're at the pool on the seventh floor. Should we go?"

"Definitely, yeah. Let me change her into her bathing suit, and then we'll come down."

"Alright. If you want, I could change her, so you have time to get ready yourself."

"Really?" I nodded. She handed me Sapphire's bathing suit and smiled. "Thank you." She whispered. I put sapphire down on my bed and played with her little hands. She squirmed only a little and watched as I unbuttoned her clothing. Her diaper was a little wet, which wasn't bad. After finally putting her bathing suit on and changing her diaper, I put her little hat over her head, rubbed some sunscreen on her arms and legs, and face. I threw my bikini on, put my hair into a bun and nodded. It wasn't until I looked in the mirror, I realized how much I look like a mother. With the baby in my arms, the diaper bag on my shoulder and my bathing suit on, I look like this child's mother.

Adelaide, Harrison and I made our way down to the seventh floor to meet the group at the rooftop pool, with sapphire in her car seat, being carried by Adelaide. I feel bad, I feel like I should help her, because she spends all day with Sapphire, but never with Harrison.

"Hey." I said, touching Ade's arm. She looked to me and smiled. "If you wanna go with Harrison and do stuff, feel free to. You're more than welcome to leave her with me, and go out." I said. She smiled widely and nodded.

"Thanks, but I don't wanna give you the pain of having to deal with her. She's been rough lately."

"I don't mind. I just wanna help you out." I smiled, as the elevator door opened.

"There you are." Addison said, grabbing my arm.

"Okay, that hurt." I said, taking my grip away from him.

"Sorry." He mumbled, before jumping in the pool. I smiled, set my stuff on the ground, took my cover up off and sat on the beach chair.

"I kinda wanna meet your mom." Adelaide laughed.

"Go ahead. We got into a fight, so we're not talking."

"Why not?" She asked. "Because apparently, I wanna check out the guys here, under my sunglasses. When my boyfriend is here with me." Her jaw dropped. "Yeah, she said that."

"Babe, come in!" Jason yelled.

"In a little while." I replied, crossing my legs.

"He's been treating you good, right?"

"Yes."

"You're not lying, right? I know my little cousin can be... Aggressive."

"He hasn't shown me that side yet." She nodded. With my eyes closed and my sunglasses over my eyes, I laid back on the chair and just took a deep breath, trying to calm my beating heart. My body lifted off the chair, and my eyes flew open. Tattoos swarmed his arms, as he carried me.

"Addison! Put me down!" I yelled, flailing my arms.

"Okay." He replied easily, before dropping me into the pool. When I resurfaced, I spit out water and coughed, due to the water that was in my mouth.

"You asshole!" I yelled, pushing at his chest.

"It was funny!" Addison yelled. Jason swam to me, seeing what happened.

"What's going on?" Jason asked.

"I was having fun, and she wasn't. So I threw her in the pool." Addison explained.

"Everyone knows I don't like the water."

"Alright, I didn't know. Take a damn chill." Addison replied. I took a deep breath and walked to the stairs.

"Babe, come on." Jason sighed, following me.

"I'm just not in the mood right now." I said, sitting back on the chair, now soaking wet.

"Come on, don't be this way. He didn't know."

"Just.... I want a little time to myself, please?" I asked. He nodded and walked away.

"Do you wanna put her feet in the water?" Adelaide asked, lifting Sapphire to me.

"You sure?" She nodded and handed her over. I walked over to the stairs and sat down. I dipped Sapphire's feet in the water, and she giggled.

"You like that?" I smiled, bringing my head down to her. She smiled and looked down at the water. She kicked her feet more, clinging to my bathing suit top.

"You wanna go in more?" I asked, standing up. She looked back down at the water and smiled. I took the first step down and dipped her feet down. She smiled widely and laughed. My feet now stood on the bottom of the three-foot pool, and Sapphire's legs were fully in the water. She kicked her feet heavily, and clung onto my top, pulling it down slightly.

She looked up to me with a wide smile and bounced up and down. "Hi, baby." I smiled, dipping my head down to her. She took my bathing suit top in her small hands, and tugged on the straps, making the ties come loose. "You little sneak." I said, holding my bathing suit in one hand and the baby in the other.

I felt hands around my neck, as they retied my top. The hands then trailed down to my waist. "I'm sorry." Jason whispered.

"Sorry for?"

"For not sticking up for you."

"Apology accepted. Now, I have a baby in my arms, and I can not drop her." He nodded and left peppered kisses on my shoulder. A squeal from Sapphire made me look down to her, and smile. She kicked her feet and swung her arms around, bouncing around and laughing hysterically.

"You like the water, don't you?" I asked, kissing her hair. "Wanna go down further?" I smiled, dropping myself lower, making Sapphire go further into the water.

"Talia!" Adelaide yelled. I looked up, to see her holding a small tube. "Do you wanna put her in here?" I nodded and walked over to the side of the pool with the baby still in my arms.

"There we go." I smiled, pulling the top of the float up. Sapphire's feet were in the water, and her head was obviously out. I saw her kicking her feet lightly, before making a face.

"What baby?" I asked, holding onto the float. She burst into tears right on the stop. She was frustrated that she couldn't move. "Shh." I whispered, picking her up. She held onto me tightly, and finally put her head on my shoulder. "Are you tired?" I asked, rubbing her back.

"I'm gonna go put her down for a nap." Adelaide nodded and handed me the diaper bag. I walked to the door, only to be stopped by Addison.

"I'm sorry for doing that."

"It's fine. I over reacted."

"So we good?"

"We're good, Clark."

"Good, Grey."

Jason's POV

I walked into the bedroom with the towel around my waist, and my hair soaking wet. "Babe?" I asked, looking around. Laying on the bed, Talia sat, or laid, with Sapphire on her chest, both of them passed out sleeping.

I took my phone out and smiled. I snapped the picture on Snapchat and saved the picture.

Day Three:

Natalia's POV

Driving. Lots and lots of driving. That's all we did today. Drive, stop, drive, stop. There was literally nothing to this day at all. Except piling into the car, and then actually getting to the resort in the Florida Keys.

"This is their version of a beach?" I asked, looking at the lagoon.

"Guess so." Adelaide replied.

"This is nothing. Please tell me they have something better."

"They have Dolphins!" Amber yelled.

"Ew, it smells." My mom said, holding her nose. Sally nodded and laughed.

"Alright, let's go check and see if the rooms are ready." Sally said.

"Mrs. Clark?" The little girl behind the desk asked.

"That's me."

"You have... Six rooms."

"Correct. And they should all be connecting."

"Yes, they're all connected." We all ran to our rooms on the third floor. By run, I mean run to the elevators. Which only fit about ten of us.

"I can't wait to see the rooms." I smiled, shaking my hands. The door opened, and we ran to the doors. Starting at the end of the hotel, was Jackson, Amber, Jason and I's room. Because we got rooms with two beds, we're all sharing the room. Everyone except Adelaide and Harrison.

"Holy cow." Amber said, looking around. Right when you walk into the room, the first thing you see is the balcony. "We have a balcony!" Amber exclaimed, running to it. Two queen beds stood in the middle of the room, and a television in front of them stood against the wall.

"Lia!" Amber yelled, pulling me out to the balcony. 

"This is all ours?"

"All ours."

"Damn." Jackson said, walking to us. He put his arms around Amber's waist and put his chin on her shoulder. "Check it out." She smiled, looking up at him.

"Let's go to the pool." Jackson said, now putting his arms around my waist. I leaned into him and sighed.

"What's that smell?" I asked, sniffing around.

"What smell?" He asked. I turned myself around and sniffed his shirt.

"You smell really good."

"Thanks." 

 

Instead of going to the pool, we all ended up going to a restaurant, and by a restaurant, I mean a roadside diner. It was a shack, with no doors, no air conditioning, and it was on the water. Literally.

"Hi y'all, welcome to Porky's, I'm Gina and I'll be your waiter for the night. Can I start ya'll off with some drinks?" She smiled. We all ordered a round of water since it was easiest.

"I kinda want a salad." I said, looking at the menu.

"I'm getting a burger." Jason informed.

"Same man." Nick replied.

"I'm getting the pulled pork sandwich and French fries." Bria informed.

"Cajun chicken sandwich." Adelaide said. The waitress came back, took our orders, and then again left us alone. The place was dimly lit, but it had lots of people in it. We probably filled up the whole restaurant, but it made them look busy.

"I hate that smell." I groaned, stuffing my nose up.

"What smell?" Amber asked before sipping her water.

"That fish smell. It's making me nauseous."

"Lia, we live in New York. You're not used to that smell?"

"I'm not! I barely ever get out." She looked at me skeptically. 

"So, for tomorrow guys, we're just gonna hang out by the lagoon and pool. Does that sound good?" Sally asked. We all replied with 'yeah' and 'okays' not really caring what we did. The waitress came back out with two trays of food. Around the food went, passing it to Jackson or Poppy or Mike. Of course, I was on the end, so I got my food last.

My salad consisted of chicken, spicy ranch dressing, tomatoes, onions, and walnuts. Everything would've been perfect if it wasn't for the spicy ranch dressing. That made it absolutely disgusting.

"I'm feeling so nauseous." I mumbled, putting my head in my hands.

"You okay baby?" Jason asked, dipping his head down. I shook my head and took a deep breath.

"I actually feel like I'm gonna be sick." 

"Just take a deep breath, yeah? Take some water." He said, rubbing my back. I don't know if it was the smell or the salad, but something made me sick. And it made me sick fast.

"Do you need to go to the bathroom?" Amber asked. I shook my head.

"Throw up?" Poppy chimed in.

"I don't know yet. But my stomach is killing me. God." I groaned, throwing my head back.

"Guys, I'm gonna take her for some fresh air. We'll be back soon. And if not, here's my portion of the meal." Jason said, throwing down twenty dollars. He took my hand in his and led me outside.

"I don't know what it was, but something made me sick to my stomach." I said, sitting on the back of the car.

"Maybe it was the smell of the fish?"

"That, or the salad. But whatever it was, took a huge toll on me."

"Well, just breathe, you'll be fine in a little while." He smiled, kissing my cheek. A few minutes later, the group came piling out of the shack.

"Feeling better?" Amber asked. I nodded with a smile on my face.

"Thanks for worrying."

"Of course." She smiled, putting her arm around my neck.

"To the hotel we go!" Addison exclaimed, running to the car. I laughed and shook my head.

"You know, I've always wondered why he's single. But I think I finally figured it out." I laughed.

"He's hot." Poppy said.

"And like, seven years older than you."

"So?" After arriving back to the hotel, Jackson, Amber, Jason and I all sat on the balcony just looking around the parking lot.

"Can you believe this is our first vacation as couples?" I asked.

"Who would've thought we would ever be here." Amber said.

"And who would've thought Jack would be dating Amber?" Jason asked.

"Honestly, I saw it coming. By the way, you two would fight, I knew it." I replied. 

"Can we walk around?" I asked turning to Jason.

"Sure, where?"

"Around the back. The pool and stuff. Just to walk." I replied. He nodded and put his shoes on. We rode the elevator down to the lobby, and just walked around the lobby for a bit. With my hand in Jason's, and our arms swaying between us, it all felt like a movie. The past few weeks of having no school have been great, but I can't help but think about the future. About Jason and I. About our lives. About our friends. I hate to think about it, but nothing can last forever. And I feel like we aren't going to last forever. He's going to go off and do what he wants to do, as will I. We'll go our separate ways and we'll never look back to each other. He'll find someone else to love, while I sit in my college dorm room alone. I can see it now.

"What's wrong?" Jason asked, wiping an unwanted tear from my cheek.

"It's stupid." I replied shaking my head.

"Talia." He said, lifting my chin up. My eyes connected with his and I lost it. "What's wrong?"

"We're losing."

"What do you mean?"

"You're going to Brown, and I'm going to NYU, we won't see each other. Ever. You'll find someone at brown, break up with me, and then I'll be alone."

"Hey, we have a whole year left. Just because I got accepted to brown, doesn't mean we have to worry about that now, alright? You have to still apply to colleges too."

"I got a full scholarship to NYU."

"That's great! Natalia, that's amazing." He smiled hugging me.

"No, it's not."

"Yes, it is. You're going to the college you've always wanted to go to. Yeah, it's farther away, but baby, it's great."

"I don't wanna lose you."

"I should say the same thing to you. You're gonna be off on your own without me. And there's a lot of guys there at NYU."

"There's a lot of pretty girls at brown."

"But there's only one of you."

"You're gonna find someone else. And forget about me." 

"Remember when I first told you I loved you?"

"At Uncle Cile's house after our first break-up."

"I meant that, Talia. Every word I said to you. I told you I loved you when I didn't even tell my own mom I loved her. And there will never be another girl." He said, smoothing his hands over my cheeks.

"Now, let's go walk around." He smiled, kissing my cheek lightly.
