49. Addy's speech...

Addy walked in. “Can I talk to Ashton alone?” she asked everyone.

The nurse stepped back. Rest time can wait.

After everyone left, Addy sat down on the bed beside Ashton.

“Hey, sis…” she said slowly.

“Hey…” Ashton said

“How you doing?” Addy said.

“Fine, don’t worry about me!” Ashton said.

“Well, I’m gonna worry about you because I don’t know when you’re gonna decide to cut yourself!” Addy yelled.

“No, Addy. Don’t say that!” Ashton cried.

“I’m sorry…”

“So, when’s the wedding?” Ashton asked quickly.

“Not even sure if it’s even happening anymore…” Addy said.

“What? Why not?” Ashton asked.

“Well, we argued yesterday… because I don’t want kids and Harry does!” Addison started.

“You don’t want kids? I did!” Ashton said, shocked.

“I know YOU did, but we’re different! I’ve seen you with the kids, and you’re a great mother, but it’s too much responsibility. I’m not ready to pretty much give up everything for a kid. But Harry doesn’t understand me!” Addy said.

“Addison Marie Reynolds!” Ashton started. She was always almost serious when she used people’s full names. Addy knew that, and quickly straightened up.

Ashton spoke again,” Don’t speak like that! Kids are wonderful!”

“To you! Not to me! I remember after mom and dad got a divorce, and I moved away with mom, and you stayed with dad after Emily died. We were so young, and I didn’t want to leave my twin sister and move to a completely different continent! We still talked, but grew up almost strangers! Mom told you about my rebel phase, and all that stuff, and I got a modeling job, and all my friends were German, but I didn’t have you!” Addy said, in tears by now. “Back to the point, I remember when mom got the call… she told me you were pregnant… we were only 16! I remember taking the phone and having that conversation with you while mom freaked out. You told me you didn’t care what people thought or that you were 16. You said you love the father, and you were ready to be a mother! I knew that day things were never going to be the same. I racked my brain over how you just gave up freedom. I couldn’t do that, and didn’t believe you were pregnant! I promised myself I would never do that! All night, mom yelled,’ How could she be so careless?’ and ‘I bet she gives it up!’ while I laid in bed thinking,’ I’m too immature to have a kid’ and mom had us at 17! But anyway, seeing you with the kids now, I know that you were born to be a mother! That’s your life, not mine…” Addy finally finished her long, moving speech and looked to Ashton, who had sat there silently the whole time, occasionally nodding.

“Wow… thanks for that trip down memory lane…” Ashton said in tears, “I didn’t realize how hard it was for you when you found out I was pregnant… I remember that. Now everything is different. Liam’s my husband, and… wow. It was hard for me too when y’all moved… but it was too hard with losing Emily… but we have each other NOW and that’s all that matters... Addison! You are not immature! You’re getting married! One day, you’re gonna realize kids are the next step. And frankly, I’m not the best role model for my kids!” Ashton said, nudging her head toward the bandages on her wrist.

“Forget that Ashton! I couldn’t handle kids!” Addy said.

“Yes you could! I had doubts too, but holding that little baby in your arms, nothing else matters! Just knowing you brought a life into this world is enough. And watching them grow up. Look at Cooper! The smartest, wittiest 4-year-old I know!” Ashton said.

“Maybe kids aren’t so bad!” Addy said, seeing Ashton’s point.
“Yea!” Ashton said.

“Awww, can you just see a little Harry running and playing with Wyatt, Cooper, and Shawn! Wow!” Addy laughed.

“Does that mean you want kids?” Ashton asked.

“I didn’t say anything!” Addison laughed again, “Maybe…”

“Woo-oh. Better tell Harry!”
