29. Chapter Twenty Nine

I know I haven't updated in a while and I'm sorry for that but I've been holding it off and holding it off so long. I just need to get something off my chest, something I've held in for so long and it's now just getting to me.

Guys, I love writing, I really do. I love how emotional I get when there's a sad chapter, I love how angry I get when there's a fight and I love how happy I get when they make up. Every single aspect of writing, I love.

And I've came to realize this is something I want to do for the rest of my life. This hasn't only become a hobby of mine, it's become a lifestyle. This has taken over my life for the better and it has honestly changed me. I see things differently in the world and I've realized it's my stress reliever.

With that being said, if you have something you love doing so much that it hurts to stop doing it because somebody tells you that you can't make it in the world you want to be in, screw them. Whatever you want to do, you do, no matter how many times you get told no or how many times you fail. Whether you want to be a writer, teacher, businessman/woman, hell, the president of the United States, you do it. Put yourself out there and make it happen.

I've been told so many times that writing won't make me a lot of money or that it's not a good career. But I don't care about that, I care that I'm doing what I love for a reason because at the end of the day, if you're doing something you hate, you're going to end up hating your life.

So, take a stand and show those who've told you no and those who said you won't make it, show them wrong. Prove them wrong. Show them that you are the best you can be at what you love and show them how much you love it. I know for me, my dad is so supportive of what I do and he knows and sees how much I love writing and my mom, she isn't so supportive and she doesn't understand the emotion I get from writing. And I'm showing her that she's wrong, I'm showing her that I can make a career out of this and I'm showing her that doing what I'm doing right now is something I love to do so much that it hurts when I can't write.

Okay, that's it on my little sentimental moment, just had to get that off my chest. Without you guys, I wouldn't be where I am right now and it wouldn't be the same. I promise you, the next chapter will be coming soon!

Jason's POV

"Jase?"

"Jason,"

"Yoo-hoo," I opened one eye and groaned. "Morning, I need to talk to you."

"Go away, Kate,"

"It's important."

"More important than sleep? Go. Away."

"It's about Talia." Both eyes opened and I sat up.

"What about Talia?"

"I went to visit her last night, you know, to see how she was doing with your friend leaving for the army and all, and I saw her with some guy. In her room. Her roommate let me into their room and there was some guy in the room sleeping with her. Not like, sleeping with her as in hook up but like sleeping with her."

"Why is it always me? Hand me my phone."

"It's six in the morning. You're gonna wake her."

"You think I care? Get me my phone." Kaitlyn walked to the other side of my room and retrieved my phone, finally.

"Can I have some privacy? Damn, it's like I'm back at home."

"I'm worried about you, Jason. If she's cheating on you t-"

"Cheating on me? You don't know Talia like I do. Now, give me privacy." Kate nodded and walked out of my bedroom, dragging her feet along. Damn girl waking me up at six in the morning to tell me this crap and get me all angry at this time of morning.

"Hello." Talia's groggy voice sounded through the phone like she didn't even check the caller ID.

"We need to talk."

"Jason? It's... Jesus Christ, Jase, it's six in the morning. Why the hell are you calling me?"

"Did you have a fun night last night?"

"What are you talking about?" She asked.

"Kate said she saw you and some guy in your dorm room last night. She came to make sure you were okay since Jackson leaving and you were sleeping with some guy. What the hell is that?"

"I'm allowed to have friends, Jason. Just like you're allowed to."

"I know you are, Talia. But not guys who you sleep in a bed with."

"It was only Tyler."

"Great." I replied. Like that's gonna help.

"I was comforting him because his girlfriend broke up with him."

"Oh, even better. So, he not only slept in the same bed as you but he's now single. You're not making it better on yourself."

"You don't see me doing this every time Kaitlyn comes into your room barely dressed and wearing your clothes."

"That's different and you know it."

"Is it?"

"Yes!"

"You have a reputation of cheating on girls, Jason."

"Don't give me that. I changed and you know it."

"Okay, look, I'm tired and today isn't the best day for you to do this with me."

"Talia, don't you hang up this phone,"

"Check your calendar, Jason. See what today is and then call me back. Maybe you'll get an idea as to why Tyler was really here."

"Talia,"

"T... dammit." I groaned and did as she told me to.

March fifteenth.

One event.

Dad's birthday-forty

I groaned and shoved my face into my pillow. Don't I feel like a jackass. Today marks Talia's dad's fortieth birthday and here I am, yelling at Talia. Guess I'm going back to marking down Angel and devil.

Natalia's POV

"Okay, I'm so sorry for yelling at you over the phone, it officially makes me the worlds worst boyfriend. I didn't even realize what today was." Jason said, taking me into his embrace. I wrapped my arms around his waist and closed my eyes, taking in his scent.

Jason and I haven't seen each other in a whole month. We haven't seen each other in person or on Skype. Only texting and even that was limited. With my schedule and his it made things harder and harder for us to communicate, even more now that spring ball is starting up. And especially now with changing majors.

"You're actually here?" I asked, keeping myself in his arms.

"Yes, baby, I'm here. I know it's been a long time since I saw you and I'm so sorry for that. And speaking of that, how's Med school going?"

"It's... good. I never thought I would like it so much,"

"That's great. So, what are we doing today? Anything special for your dad?"

"Well, I was thinking... since Monday is two years since your mom passed away, maybe we could celebrate both our parents. Maybe a small family outing?"

"With my family and yours?"

"Just close family. Aunt Sally, Uncle Mike, your cousins, my parents, Macey, Zack, Tommy, Uncle Cile."

"Not your parents."

"Alright. Not my parents. So, my dad's favorite thing to do was bowling."

"Mom's was seeing her family happy."

"Then we have it. We're going bowling, baby."

Jason and I sat in the bowling alley watching our families mingle together. Tommy played with Jason's fingers as he sucked on his teething ring, with high hopes of bowling with us.

"Jason, you're up." Sally called, backing away from the aisle. Jason stood up and let Tommy come to me. He wrapped his small arms around my legs and put his head in between my knees.

"Go try with daddy, baby." I smiled. Tommy let go of me and joined Jason at the aisle. He walked slowly behind his father before coming to a stop. Jason looked down to Tommy, put his hands on the bowling ball, moved Tommy's onto the ball, swung his hands back and let the ball fly down the alley. The ball flew down, knocking all the pins to the floor. Everyone cheered for Tommy as he turned around, even Jason cheered. Tommy laughed and clapped his hands aggressively before walking over to me and put his head back in my knees.

"Good job, baby." I smiled.

"So, would your dad approve of me now?" Jason asked, joining me at my seat.

"He always would've approved. Now he would just love you since you got a strike."

"Well, I didn't get the strike, Tom did,"

"And how about your mom? Would she be happy to see this?"

"Extremely. She's definitely smiling up there," he said, looking up to the ceiling.

"I miss her every single day," I whispered.

"Me too, baby. Me too."

"Let's get a picture!" Sally exclaimed, gathering everyone together. I stood up with Tommy in my trails, holding onto my legs.

"You have to let go baby." I said, picking him off the ground.

"Here, I got him," Jason said, taking the flailing baby from my arms. Sally handed her phone to the attendant who ran the alleys to take the picture of our whole group. Macey and Zac stood in front of me, both having their arms wrapped around each other and Jason stood next to me with Tommy in his arms looking at Jason.

After getting the picture sent to me, I took it upon myself and posted a couple things on my Instagram.

Grey22: I remember when I was seven years old and you pushed me around in a cart in the food store and left me in the aisle on purpose. I also remember when I got hurt from soccer when I was ten and you were right besides me holding my hand telling me it was going to be okay. For my ninth birthday, you came home early from work and took me shopping for anything and everything I wanted, even though we didn't have a lot of money and the countless days where you would hold me because I was crying and the countless nights you would tuck me in and play sticks with me. Today was hard, Dad. We celebrated your birthday with some bowling with ours and Jason's family, the people who love me and make me so happy. I wish you were still here so we could celebrate together but not a day goes by that I don't miss you. I love you so much, daddy. Happy birthday👼🏼❤️

I went back to my camera roll and chose the picture we just took.

Grey22: I couldn't have asked for a better family to spend today with. Celebrating birthdays and two years of a family member passing is always hard but it makes it all better with people who love you. I miss you so much, Dad and Mrs. Summers❤️👼🏼 @HardyHarHarrison @Adelaide.Clark.Spence @BriaHenning @EdwardHenning @Addison.Clark @PhoebsRochelle @SallyLynnClark @MikeClark @MandaGrey @CileJGrey @Summers_22

Going back, once again to my camera roll, I chose a picture of Jason, Tommy and I, which we recently took when we were sitting on the benches waiting for our turn when we first got to the alley.

Grey22: Happy birthday to the man who did it all and is still doing it; a father, brother, son, husband, a hero and grandfather. And a two year anniversary to the woman who did it all and is still remembered for everything she did; a mother, sister, wife, aunt, guardian and grandmother. We miss you so much, Dad and Mrs. Summers. May your spirit live on. Love, The Summers
