I sit up and Ashton looks at me. "Hey,beautiful." He whispers. I smile. "I'm not beautiful." I say. "No,you're not," I look up at him. "You're breathtaking." I hug him. We get up and go into the kitchen. Calum is sitting at the counter island,eating cereal,while looking at his phone. "Hey,look." He says,showing us his phone. It's on Karen's Instagram profile and it has a picture of me and Ashton,sleeping together. "It's not my fault he's the best at giving cuddles." I say,hugging Ashton. We go downstairs and find Luke sleeping on the couch,as well as Michael sprawled out on the floor. With Allison hugging him. I try to hide my laughter. I take a picture and post it on Instagram,tagging them. Ashton laughs. Allison's phone makes the notification noise and she wakes up. She sees us and immediately pulls away from Michael,which makes him wake up. Allison checks her phone,and then looks at me. Michael does the same,and gives a nervous laugh. Calum comes up behind us. "Well if it makes you feel better,here's this." He shows Michael and Allison his phone. "I'm assuming it's us on there." Ashton guesses and Michael nods. Calum puts his phone in his pocket and then pokes Luke's cheek. "Go away." Luke mumbles. "No." Calum tells him. Luke sits up and rubs his eyes. "Fine." We laugh.

I take Allison up to my room and let her choose an outfit to take home with her. "This one?" She asks,coming out of the closet. Nirvana shirt with black leggings. I shrug. "Sure." She changes in the bathroom as I pick out my outfit of the day. A checkered black and white shirt,a black scarf,denim shorty shorts,and black sandals. Allison comes out,finally,and looks at my outfit spread out on my bed. "Nice." I nod. "Stay here,please. Last thing I need is a wandering Allison in Sydney." She nods and sits at my vanity. "Can I use this?" She points to my makeup. "Don't use it all." I warn and go to the bathroom to change. I smile at myself in the bathroom mirror and go to my bedroom. "Perfect. Now,your turn for makeup." "And hair." I remind her. She nods. I do my usual foundation and bronzer and yada yada. I change up eyeliner today and do a different kind of cat eye,with two wings. Weird,I know. I put my hair on top of my head in a messy bun. "There we go," I say and Allison nods. "Hey,so I guess you and Michael like each other." I say as we go down to eat breakfast. "I don't know if he likes me,but I like him." She says. Michael walks into the room and smiles at us. He goes down to the basement. "Well,maybe he does." She shrugs. We eat toaster waffles,because we live dangerously. "I hope I can move here." Allison tells me. I nod. She pulls out her phone as I wash the plates and forks. She starts typing and Michael comes up stairs,quietly. He puts a finger to his lips and I nod. "What if Michael does like me? I mean,that'd be awesome,right?" She doesn't look up. "Yeah,awesome." I say,looking at Michael. "I wonder if he does." She still doesn't look up. "Yeah,maybe he could tell us." I reply. "I'm not asking him." Allison thumbs some more words in. "You don't have to." I tell her. "What do you mean?" She asks. "I could just tell you right here, right now." Michael says,leaning on the wall. Allison jumps and looks up. "You heard?" She whispers. He nods. "Do you like me?" She asks,still whispering. He nods. I smile as Ashton wraps his arms around me from behind. We watch as Allison fan girls over learning Michael likes her. Allison's phone buzzes and her eyes widen. "Guess what." She says. "What?" I ask. "My mom agreed to move here." "That's great!" I reply. Michael opens his arms and Allison hugs him. "I have to admit,they seem close even though the met last night." I tell Ashton. He nods. I don't know why her mom answered quickly. I smile anyway. Michael and Allison don't pull apart for a minute or so.

I watch as Mrs.Grason (Allison's mom) pulls into my driveway. She gets out of the car. "Karen,this is Angelina Grason. Angelina,this is my fiancée,Karen Clifford." Dad introduces them. Karen and Angelina shake hands. "It's nice that the girls might get to be near each other again." Mrs.Grason says,smiling. "Come in,I have a computer we could search for homes on." Karen says. Dad comes over to us. I'm resting my head on Ashton's shoulder,Allison and Michael are holding hands,Calum is sitting against the tree,and Luke is laying on the ground with an acoustic guitar. "You lazy people." Dad says. "It only seems that way because you work all the time,Mr.Woods." Luke replies. "Please,call me David. And that is true." Dad goes inside to do whatever it is he's going to do. Luke plays a random tune and we talk about school. "I think I'm gonna like it here." Allison says and I smile. "Good." I tell her. "We're happy to have you." Michael agrees.
