Working with Ash was very interesting. I scanned her face as she tried to make out the words, “Yeah, okay so I’m just going to say its cat. I mean there isn’t anything else it could be right?”
I laughed and nodded really afraid to say anything about it. I just hope that it won’t be involved as it was last time. I began to seep into my world of old memories. I guess I must have been thinking for quite awhile, because Ash started clapping her hands in front of my face.
“Hello? Earth to Sky, are you in there?”
I jumped back quickly and shook my head. “Oh, yea sorry,” I stood up and went to the fridge to find another pomegranate.
“Why do you like pomegranates so much?” I turned towards her and shut the fridge. “Well, I don’t know really. It’s a dragon thing I guess,” I shrugged my shoulders.
I sat down beside her and tried to study the book myself. I just couldn’t understand. I looked back up at Ashley who was still trying to make out the words. She looked tired and frustrated. I looked at the clock on the microwave and read 10:36 p.m.
“What time do you usually go to bed?”
“Ummm …., nine-ish, why?” She looked at the clock and nodded. “I guess I’ll take a shower and we can work on it again tomorrow.
I smiled and nodded. She closed the book and slid it to the middle of the table.
I felt a bit frustrated myself and didn’t feel like watching anything. I sat up on the couch and thought about my talk with keesa. We had talked about a lot. She seemed really interested in Ashley. Keesa had told me about how she was doing. I told her about the arrest and that we were trying to figure out the book. The whole time we were talking it felt like she had been distracted. I had a feeling it must have been Viper. It seemed like forever that they had been friends and never really confessed how they felt about each other. I was thinking about asking her about Viper. Just before I was about to ask she had interrupted me, ‘I’m going to let you go now. I’ll call you later okay?’ I wonder what had happened. I suppose Viper asked her to go on a walk, as usual.
Thoughts raced through my mind. I felt as though we had all just become a family again. The only thing was I had a slight feeling that it wasn’t going to last long. That feeling made my stomach whirl and my head ache. I tried to push it out of my head and gather my thoughts.
After 20 minutes, I finally got rid of the awful feeling. The only thing that was on my mind now was Criss. I couldn’t wait until our wedding. Most people spend their time trying to plan their wedding to be perfect. I knew there was no such thing as perfect. All I knew is that I loved Criss. He was my other half, my soul mate, the one. I’ve lived my life long enough to know when the perfect person comes. When I’m with him, I don’t care what happens as long as we’re together.
I started to think about how cheesy it sounded, but it was true. We we’re in love and nothing could change that. At that moment I wished I could sleep. I wanted to be able to dream and make up a perfect world. I wanted to be able to be with him, right now. I just wanted to be in his arms and have that worry free feeling I get when I’m with him. I wanted to feel safe.
Ashley came back with her wet hair and P.J.s. I quickly pulled out a bag of videos that Jay had bought before we arrived and asked if she wanted to watch a movie.
After some debate on which one to watch we finally settled for Mama Mia. Watching her fall asleep brought me back to the time I held her in my arms and watched her sleep, and I cried remembering.

The End
