85. Chapter Eighty Five

For this chapter, listen to the brand new song by Mr. Niall Horan called This Town. Honestly, and I'm not being biased, it's such a great song. I literally learned the song in three minutes. If you haven't listened to it, go listen to it now, because it's amazing. 

I really hope you're all enjoying the last couple chapters of this book, because I know I am. I know it's taking me forever to update, but I'm truly trying my hardest. I've been getting so much homework, to the point I'm done by seven at night, and passed out in my bed at eight. I'm so sorry for not updating, but I have been writing the first chapter to the sequel.

What do you all think of the name? It's officially called: A Different Kind Of Reputation. Personally, I think it's great, and I think it fits the book and the things Talia says to Jason perfectly, like, how he needs to be a role model, and stuff like that. 

So, if you all want to, you can comment your thoughts, opinions and questions, and I'll be happy to answer. It's easier to answer comments than to write a whole chapter:) The next chapter will be coming shortly, keep your eyes and ears out for any information about a certain day coming.... Mrs.Hemmings01 is going to be going on for two years on October 14. So, keep your eyes and ears out for any info about that day... If I were to do something, would you all participate? Let me know:))))

Natalia's POV

"I'm surprised he hasn't blown you off yet." Jackson said, as, I piled the food onto my plate.

"What do you mean?" I asked, turning my head to him.

"Come on, T. You and I, and I'm pretty sure everyone in this place knows Jason."

"He's coming, okay?

"Come on, Talia. It's an hour into prom, and he still isn't here."

"Yes, Jackson. I know. He isn't here right now. But pretty soon, he will show up and everything will be okay." He nodded and turned away from me as I kept piling the bread sticks onto my plate. 

It's an hour into prom, and there has been no sight of Jason anywhere. His truck isn't here and neither is he. After him telling me he would be here, and he would drive here, he hasn't shown up yet. I really don't know if he will or not, and it hurts to think that this is my senior prom, and my date isn't here. But it's even more heartbreaking that he was so happy and excited for this prom, and he isn't even here for it. 

"Any word?" I asked.

"Not yet, honey." Amber replied, patting my shoulder. I nodded and stuffed my dress underneath my bottom before sitting down in the cushioned chair.

"Maybe he's gonna make a grand entrance."

"This is Jason we're talking about. The one who doesn't dance in front of anyone. He's not one to make a scene."

"Why don't you go have fun?" I asked Amber.

"I don't want to leave you alone at the table by yourself."

"Nonsense. This is your first prom as a couple. Go have fun and don't worry about me."

"Are you sure?"

"Positive. I'll just call Adelaide to see how the baby is, and it'll all be good." She nodded and went to the dance floor with Jackson. 

"Jason, where the hell are you? I've been here at this stupid prom for an hour." I said, as Jason finally picked his phone up.

"I'm sorry, I couldn't come tonight." He replied, his voice coarse.

"You couldn't come tonight? When have you ever stood me up before?"

"I'm sorry."

"Where are you right now?"

"Mason's house. He brought Kyle and Dan over too."

I scoffed and shook my head, "you stood me up to hang out with friends at my senior prom. Any other day you could've done this, but you decide tonight." I heard him sigh on the other side of the phone, meaning he was really done with hearing this from me.

"You know what, I'm not mad. No, not at all. I'll see you whenever you decide to be a real man and show up with your girlfriend to public events."

"Talia, we won prom king and queen!" Amber yelled, showing me her crown.

"That's great, Am. Hey, I think I'm gonna head home."

"Is everything okay?" She asked, putting her hand to hold her crown on top of her head.

"Yeah, everything is fine, I'm just really tired and you know, I'm making a fool out of myself now that Jason isn't here."

"Do you need a ride? I could get Jackson to take you home."

"No, don't worry about it. You have fun, okay? I'll call you tomorrow." She nodded and hugged me. 

"What's up huckleberry?" Uncle Cile answered.

"Can you come pick me up?"

"It's prom night, are you serious?"


"What happened?"

"Don't wanna talk about it. Just please, come pick me up. The limo can't leave unless everyone is ready to leave."

"Alright, I'm on my way."

"Thank you." About twenty minutes later, Uncle Cile's jeep appeared in the driveway of the venue.

"You look beautiful tonight, T." He smiled, as I sat in the front seat.

"Thanks." I sighed, leaning my head on the head board.

"Everything go okay tonight?"

"Just peachy." He nodded. 

"Do you wanna talk about it?"

"Nope. I just want to go home and cuddle in my warm bed in my comfy sweatpants and sweatshirt."

"Alright. I'm glad you called me tonight. I know I'm your second choice now that you're close with Jason's family and all."

"You're never my second choice. You're always my first. And I think it's great that you adopted Leah as yours, Uncle Cile."

"You think? I was nervous when I brought it up to S, but I think she's happy with it, and I hope Leah is too when she's older."

"Jason suggested I adopt Macey and Zack as my own."

"He what?"

I nodded. "I'm not gonna do it, but he thinks it'll be good for them to get away from mom, you know? She's never around, so why should they have to suffer? I went through it, you know? And Macey shouldn't have to think about which days her mother will be around and when she won't, or when her sister will drive her to school and pick her up, you know?"

"True, but you're way too young for that, and trust me, your dad would not like that. I'm sure he's rolling around in his grave now, knowing your mom isn't being the greatest mom's right now. You know, she promised him when Macey was born that she would be the best she could be and would always be there for you two when you needed it. Obviously, that turned out to work perfectly. But we all know your mother. She's a workaholic, and she's all about herself. One of the reasons why you would always come and stay with me for a few days." He said, pulling into the driveway.

"Call if you need anything, yeah?" He asked.

"I will, thank you, Uncle Cile. Really." He smiled and nodded, before unlocking the car doors. I stepped out into the pouring rain and carried my shoes in my hands. My heels, if you must, were a pain my butt tonight. I got all dressed up for tonight and ended up getting stood up. 

"Why are you home?" Adelaide asked, as I walked into the living room.

"I got stood up."

"No way."

"Yup, my wonderful boyfriend stood me up to go hang out with friends." Her jaw dropped, as I flicked my soaking wet hair behind me. 

"Well, you go get out of your dress and get comfy. We're about to watch The Little Mermaid before bed."

"I'll come watch it. Give me a second."

"Do you want coffee?"

"With hazelnut." I replied. She nodded, before getting off the couch. 

I unzipped my dress, before sliding it down my body. I put on my NYU sweatshirt and my sweatpants, before pulling my hair up into a bun on the top of my head. I took my makeup, jewelry and my hair clips off, before slouching my shoulders down and breathing. 

"Did you at least have fun tonight, so you could rub it in his face?" Ade asked, as I joined her on the couch with the large coffee mug in my hands.

"Nope. Spent the night at the table and eating the whole thing of breadsticks the whole night."

"I'm sorry he stood you up."

"Don't be sorry. He should be sorry."

"Where's Tommy?"

"In his crib, sound asleep." I nodded, and before putting my head on the arm rest and stretching my feet onto Adelaide's lap.

"Tonight was such a waste."

"Tell me about it. I spent the whole night changing diapers and watching movies, while my husband spent the whole night out with his parents with Sapphire."

"Did you want to go with him? I could've found another babysitter."

"No, God, no. I can't stand his parents. They're always criticizing the family, you know?"

"I know the feeling. At least your uncle wasn't in jail for molesting a child, and at least your parents are around, and they love you. Mine could care less about me."

"Talia, that's not true." Adelaide said, pulling me up to her.

"It's not? Last time I checked, my mother wasn't there for me when I was in the hospital, she wasn't there for when Tommy was born, oh, and let's not forget how she never tells me she loves me. Ever. I hear I love you from your mom more than I hear it from mine."

"Talia, just because she doesn't say I love you, doesn't mean she doesn't love you."

"She's never home."

"Neither is my dad, but when he is, he makes it up."

"Yeah, mine doesn't. When she's home, she throws me her kids again and tells me to watch after them, even when I have plans. Like tonight. Tommy was supposed to go to Amber's, but because I had my siblings, she couldn't take them. My mom is never here to make up time. And I'm so sick and tired of it. I'm sick and tired of everyone making up excuses not to see me. First it was my mom, then it was Zac and now it's Jason. Everyone I love it leaving me on my own, and I can't take it anymore. I don't want this life, Ade. I want parents who express their love to me, and who never leave. I want siblings who know me as a sister, and not as their mother, and I want a boyfriend who doesn't stand me up and listens to me about important things. But no, I can't have that easy life, can I? I can't have my one dance, or my one stupid chance, because I always get thrown to the ground, somehow, someway. And I'm done with it."

"Why don't you go up to bed? Now that you're home, I can let you mend to yourself." She sighed, pushing my hair back. I nodded and wiped my hands down my face.

"She's sound asleep, just leave her here, and go up to bed." I nodded. 

"Hey baby." Jason whispered, rubbing his hand up and down my arm.

"Don't touch me." I said, moving away from him.

"Come on, baby. Don't be that way. I said I was sorry."

"Jason, I'm not mad at you not showing up. I'm mad that you don't take anything seriously."

"What do you mean?"

"Jase, I can't do this anymore. I can't sit here and wait for you to get home, and tend to a baby by myself.There's two people here, me and you, and for a while, I feel like it's only me. Ever since you asked me to prom, which went so smoothly, I've been alone in this, and I can't do it anymore. I know you're busy with college, and school and all that, but... I just need someone to be here for me, when I need it."

"I'm sorry."

"Stop saying you're sorry! That doesn't fix anything! What's it supposed to do? Give me relief?"

"If you're really sorry, then you can sleep in Macey's room tonight, because you're not welcomed in this bedroom until you get a feel of what it's like." His eyes widened. 

"For now on, until you prove to me you're really sorry, you have to cook, clean, change diapers, make the beds, do the laundry, help with homework, tuck in at night, drive to school, put to bed. Until I say it's done."

"Talia, come on."

"No, I'm done, I told you. You need to realize what it's like to be me for once. You wanna be sorry, fine. This is how you do it. You're the mom for now on. And Jason, it starts.... now. Go tend to your baby, baby." I said, as Tommy started screaming.
