46. Chapter Forty Six

Jason's POV

I walked into Aunt Sally's house and sighed. This will be the first time I'll be in here since Bria's home. She came home two weeks ago from the hospital with just only physical therapy to keep up. Walking, talking and laughing is all the same, just a little held back. Uncle Mike told me she's not in the best shape, but it's best to keep a smile on our faces to show her we have hope that she can get better. But forcing a smile isn't my thing, it's either real or not and Bria can see right through it, I think.

"Look who's here, B, it's Jason." Aunt Sally smiled. Bria walked over to me carefully and hugged me tightly, breathing in my ear and on my neck. I moved my hands to her back and hugged her back. She knows I'm not a hugger but she must've seen my discomfort these last few months.

"Baby cousin!" Addison exclaimed, walking over to me. He raised his hand and punched me in the shoulder. "Why the hell keep you moving a secret!?"

"Ouch. Talia wanted to keep it a secret, she didn't want anyone to know,"

"Where is the little thing anyways?"

"She went to Amber's do... donation party. For her friends. Should be ending soon." I replied, trying to cover up my total fail. Talia went with Amber to her sonogram, their first one for that matter. I think they went to the post office as well, to mail one sonogram to Jackson as a surprise. Ha, I would sure as hell be surprised if my girlfriend sent me a picture of her sonogram while I'm in the war. Poor Jackson. Poor me. I have to deal with two women now. Jesus Christ why did I sign up to have a girlfriend and her friend?

"Addison, Jason chose to not tell people he needed things to be able to move. It wasn't actually going to happen unless they could attend school. Which, thankfully, Penn State accepted them into their college and able to transfer their credits over." Aunt Sally informed.

"You're going to Penn state?! Dude, you're smart!" Addison smiled, putting me in a head lock. I put my hands over his arms and tried to escape the lock, but no such luck when Addison brought me to the carpeted floor.

"Two twenty year olds tackling each other," we both looked to the door to see Talia, Tom, and Adelaide standing at the door. Adelaide wheeled the carriage into the house while Sapphire followed.

"Sorry I'm late," Talia smiled, kissing Aunt Sally's cheek.

"It's not problem, we were just getting started."

"How'd the, um, thing go?" I asked, wiping my jeans off.

"It went good. Everything is normal, growing perfectly fine." Talia smiled, taking her jacket off.

"Donations growing?" Addison asked.

"Donations?" Talia questioned.

"Mothers must have short term memory loss. Your donation party you went to with Amber." I reminded.

"Oh, yeah. Donations are growing, yes. Lots of, um, donations. Babe, can I talk to you?" Talia and I both walked into the kitchen, far away from my family. That's the best thing about this house; wherever you go, it's far away from everyone else. The dining room is across the other side of the house. The kitchen is in the back of the house. The downstairs office is closer to the foyer but it has two doors. The bathroom is over by the dining room, so you could fart loudly and nobody would hear you. It's great, really.

"Amber was freaking out. She kept on pacing the hospital room and she was crying and just... freaking out. She really can't do this without Jackson, Jase. I can't leave her while she's in this state."

"You've never left her in your life, T. You stopped being friends for what? A month after you started dating me? She's your best friend, babe, and I understand that. But you need to think about yourself and your family here. About what you want for your family. What do you want for Tom? For yourself? Do you want to stay here and have our past haunting us or do you want to move forward with our lives and not worry if I'm doing something or if we're gonna have a fight about something stupid."

"Which is true," we both turned to the door to see Aunt Sally standing with Noah, Ade's new baby in her arms.

"Aunt Sally, this was a private conversation."

"Which is going on in my house about my new house. Jase, let me talk to Talia quickly, yeah?" I nodded.

Natalia's POV

"Jason is very passionate about this you know?" I nodded and grabbed a water bottle from the refrigerator. "And that worries me. Jason has always been the child that hated change and now he's making a major change to his life and I don't know if that passionate feeling will continue to go on. I agree with him, Talia. You both need to get away from here and I understand why he wishes to leave. However, Talia, if he sees one little ounce of disagreement in your eyes about moving, he will change his mind and he will be held back here because of you."

"I understand where you're coming from. Trust me, I want to leave, I really do. There's just so much stuff going on right now that I can't think about moving and Jason knows that. Jason keeps telling me to think about myself and my family but I'm just not that person I can't think about myself when there's so much drama going on around me. To me, my friends are my family and it's always been that way. I know I should put Tommy first and I do all the time... but I have to put my friends first too."

"I understand that, but honey, when was the last time you cared about yourself? The last time you put yourself first? Or, how about the last time you went out to relax?"

"I've been out... before Tommy was born. Before I met Jason."

"I think this is all putting pressure on you, making you want to stay here because you also don't like change. Because you have a plan and that plan will be completely shattered after moving and you're afraid of that. Trust me, I was you at your age. I had a plan and I was smart. But once I turned seventeen, it all went downhill. Four months into dating Mike, I got pregnant. Three years after that, I got pregnant again, all before I was twenty one. Married at eighteen. Three kids at twenty one, two twins and a little boy and a guy I've known for only a couple years. My plan was ruined and so was my life. But living in Staten Island wasn't good for me or my family. Yeah, I had friends but they understood why I did what I did and why I moved. Mike and I had our problems. Times where I took my kids and lived with my mother. Or with my sister. And that's why we left; no more leaving and no more fighting. No more places to run to because living in Jersey was far away from Staten Island. So, Talia, moving away is best for you and your family to keep you happy and sane."

"What if they don't understand? What if they all get angry because I chose to leave them behind? What about my family?"

"They didn't tell you, did they?" She asked.

"Tell me what?"

She sighed, "I shouldn't be saying this,"

"Sally, what?"

"Talia, baby, your parents are moving to Florida."
