43. Chapter Forty Three

Natalia's POV

"Babe, we talked about this. NYU ends in May and you end at the end of April. I have it written down on my calendar so I could tell you for the tenth time this month." I explained, pulling my knee up to my chest.

"My professors were talking about it today. They said may,"

"Jase, I'm literally on Columbia's website. It's the end of April. Professors end in May. And April thirtieth you need to take Tommy to the pediatrician for his checkup to make sure he's healthy from his last sickness. Oh, and on the same day, you have to take Macey to the park for her lunch with her class. Mom and Zac won't make it so they need you. But that's not until later in the day."

"That's a lot to remember babe," he sighed.

"No, it's not. You take the kid to the doctor. Pick the other one up from the nanny and take them both to the park. You push Tommy on the swings for a little, Macey runs around. And boom, two kids passed out in the back of the car in their car seats."

"Booster. Mace made it pretty clear it's a booster seat and not a car seat. Car seats have backs to them, booster seats don't," I rolled my eyes, "hey, just giving you information she told me."

"Alright, well, I've been searching up houses in Pennsylvania. I found one in the Poconos with five bedrooms and four baths. The bedrooms include a guest room, three children's rooms, and one master bedroom. The bathrooms are one-half bath downstairs, one full bath in the living area and a master bath in the master bedroom. There's three floors, basement, with one bathroom, main floor with one bathroom, upstairs with two bathrooms. It says it's in a child-friendly area, gated community with a pool. Lots of friendly neighbors and it's in a great location. Close to schools, elementary schools, and everything."

"How much is it?"

"Um, five hundred thousand," I replied. 

"Jesus, T, where do you find these houses? Houses Poor People Can't Ever Afford?" He asked. 

"No, I looked it up. It's the only house than can fit all of us and friends. We can't have a little house, Jase. It can't be just one floor and three bedrooms. What about Macey? Amber? Her baby? Jackson? Nick? Our families? We host parties, Jason, we need a big house for it and we have a big family. Big family, big house."

"Big house lower price?" I looked into the screen. "T, we're two college students with a one-year-old. We can't afford a house that five hundred thousand dollars."

"We are both on scholarships. We saved money."

"No, I'm on a scholarship. You were, but you decided to go to Med school instead of your original plan, which threw off your scholarship." I rolled my eyes. 

"Please, have you seen your bank account? Do you even check the amount of money you have on your card? A seventy dollar video game, seriously?" 

"It's a necessity!" 

"You need to play a game? Like all the games you played in high school wasn't enough?"

"Hey! I apologized for that,"

"No, you apologized for playing the game, not for breaking my lamp, remote and my heart." He lowered his head. "You don't need a video game, you want one. A necessity is like baby formula, we need it for Tommy, he needs it to live." 

"And I need video games... wait, we're talking about houses, not what I bought. Listen, I ask Aunt Sally if she can help chip in with the price of the house. But that just means I'll have to tell her about the plan we have."

"That's fine. We need all the money we can get right now. If we really want this to work, we need your Aunt."

"And what about Uncle Cile? Will we tell him?"

"He's gonna find out, right? Same with my parents."


Jason's POV

"Jason, what a nice surprise! Why aren't you school?" Aunt Sally asked, drying her hand. 

"I need a favor, Aunt Sally."

"Anything, what's going on? Is everything okay?"

"Yeah, yeah, everything's fine."

"So, what's going on? What's this important that you drove an hour?"

l"It's about Talia and me,"

"Oh dear, what did you do?"

"Nothing, why does everyone think that?"

l"So, why are you here?"

"So, this may come as a shock to you, b-"

"Oh god, she's pregnant, isn't she?"

"Aunt Sally! Let me speak." She nodded and shut her mouth. I took a deep breath and nodded, here it goes. "Talia and I are moving."
