47. Chapter Forty Seven

Natalia's POV

I sat with my head in my hands with my knees pulled up to my chest. Jason stood next to me with his hand leaning on the bathroom sink just watching me. It's been three days since I found out about my mom moving to Florida and Jason has been by my side since I told him. We haven't spoken about it, we haven't brought it up and we haven't mentioned anything about it. Until now, where I'm sitting on the closed toilet lid. 

"Wanna talk about it?" Jason asked, switching hands. I shook my head and looked down to my hands as the timer on my phone went off. Jason sighed and turned the sink on while I took up. Even though Jason was completely against dying my roots, he ended up doing it anyways. Personally, I think he did it to get away from Tommy and Robert who both ran around the house.

Carly came over at seven thirty this morning and dropped Robert off with us, with absolutely no notice of dropping him off. I told Jason this would happen, however, he explained that Carly wouldn't take advantage of him because he's still a teenager and he technically doesn't have custody because they never told the court, but she ended up taking advantage of both us, saying how Tommy needs to get to know his half-brother, so they can grow up together. 

"I don't want to talk about it. My mother is moving to Florida and she never told me. What's there to talk about?" I asked, dipping my head over the sink. 

"Well, like you said, your mom is moving to Florida and never told you. I think that's something you need to talk about. And the fact that both of my sons are running around the house right now, while I dye your hair." 

"If you think I'm talking to my mother, you're wrong. I will not talk to her, not now and not ever."

 

I fought Jason off as he dragged me into my parent's house. "No, I don't want to see her." 

"That's too bad because I want you to see her. So, while you do that, I'll be up in Macey's room playing with her. With... whatever she has in store for me now." Jason replied, 

"Natalia," my mother whispered as Jason pushed me into the kitchen. 

"Taylor,"

"That's where we are now? First name basis? Not being called mom?"

"Not after you kept a secret from me. Florida, seriously?"

"Honey, it's no big deal. Zac got a job offer to run the Florida building and he agreed to it. It pays well and we found a house by a school for Zackary." 

"Is there a good school for Mace?" I asked as I listened to Macey laugh from upstairs. Macey's room is closer to the stairs than anyone else's for one reason... in case there's a fire or an emergency, she can get out safe and sound. Also, she tends to wake up in the morning with a wet bed so being closer to the stairs is the best thing for all of us. Mostly me. 

"That's why I didn't want to tell you. Macey... we don't think she should come with us." 

"What the hell do you mean she shouldn't come with you? You're her mother and Zac is her father, you think leaving her behind is gonna be the best thing for her?"

"Talia, she doesn't even follow our rules and she barely knows who I am even. She knows me as mommy, but I don't know who she is, honey. I don't know her favorite sandwich or snack. I don't know how she likes her hair and her favorite book to read. She knows who Zac is, but she knows he isn't daddy, he doesn't look like her or walk like her. He doesn't know what room she was born in or why she was born the way she was. Having her with us will be a mistake because we don't know her."

"So, what? She'll live with Uncle Cile because I can tell you the court won't allow it. I'm shocked the court allowed Amanda to live with them." 

"No, she needs a stable home... with you and Jason." 

"Me and Jason? Mom, we're moving too, you can't just throw this on us in such a short time notice. Jason has Robert right now, and we have Tommy and whatever other baby is coming along one day. Macey would be too much." 

"Macey loves you, more than she loves me, Talia. Taking her with us will make her miserable as her life goes on. I trust that you and Jason can give her a better life than she has with me now. She looks up to you and she needs you as a mother figure because I can't be a mother to her. I never could, not even since your father was alive. I could barely raise you. You loved Uncle Cile more than you loved me. Hell, you loved Amber's mother more than you loved me. And it's still like that. Just like Alex did with you, I need you to do that with Macey. Be her mother."

"You ready to go, babe? Nick is getting tired with the boys." Jason said walking into the kitchen. I nodded and grabbed my bag from the chair. Jason put his hand on my waist and guided me out of the house. 

"Mom is leaving Mace behind."

"What?" He asked walking up the driveway. 

"With us. She's leaving her with us, apparently." 

"Well, shit. What do we have here?" Jason asked, walking into the house.
