Ashley is and incredible person, she’s the type of girl that always has a smile on her face and she tends to light up a room when she walks in. She’s very much the leader of her friends, without it being said. She always puts her friend’s needs before her own and is always there for them. She’s that friend that you could call at 3 am and she’d drop everything to come help you.

She was always Queen bee at her school, but for different reason. She wasn’t the awful, bitchy girl who everyone loved to hate. She was just genuine, always speaking her mind and standing up for what she believes in. She doesn’t just follow because something is cool, she’s a natural born leader and it shows. She’s always the one everyone is coming to for advice. She’ll tell you the truth plain and simple, she’s not going to tell you what you want to hear. She’s blunt and she’ll tell you the truth even if she knows the truth will hurt.

Most of the time she’s so focused on everyone else’s happiness, that she often forgets to take care of herself. Without her friends she’d probably fall apart, because truth is she needs to feel wanted and if someone doesn’t need her it forces her to focus on how lonely she actually is or the fact that she’s terrified to be in a relationship herself, because she’s been watching her parents relationship crumble since she was a little girl. She keeps her secrets and problems to herself and in all honesty her friends only know what she wants them to know, even her brother doesn’t really know her. She’s amazing at putting up a front that you can’t see past.

Despite how level headed she is, she’s got quite a temper and if you hurt one of her girls you’re going to pay for it. Just ask Ria’s last boyfriend, he’ll tell you what happened to him when Ash found out what he was doing to Ria. She’s not afraid to start a fight and you can bet she’ll finish it. Her bluntness tends to get her in trouble and she has quite a wild strike in her and with the right person, she could really let go and lose control.

So begins...

They’d spent the entire day driving, yesterday. So when they’d finally gotten to The Dover’s beach house. They’d crashed on the couch watching the Notebook. Ashely had driven the entire way in her parents Range Rover, making the girls look ten times more like daddy’s girls then they actually were.

Ashley was the first awake, she was always the last asleep and the first awake at their sleep overs. After showering she changed into her swimsuit, slipping a pair of short, shorts over her bottoms before tying her hair up into a messy bun on top her head. She still couldn’t believe that their parents had let them come alone, aside from having Austin babysit them of course. Which she really didn’t mind, she loved her brother to death, she hadn’t seen him in almost a year, because he’d been busy touring with band.

Spending the summer in California with her best friends, was a dream come true. They’d been to the beach house before only they’d been with their parents and they’d been on a schedule. This time they were on their own schedule. Somehow Ashley it could very well be their last summer together, before they all broke off to go their separate ways. Some of them were still in high school like Ria and Amber, while Sammy was planning to go away to college after the summer was over, and what Ash hadn’t told her friends was that Austin had offered her the merch girl position for his band and touring the world had been a dream of hers. After summer Chained Confessions (Her brothers band) was headed to the UK for the first time.

It was so much to think about, but Ashley pushed the thoughts aside, because she refused to let the thought of being so far from her friends get to her. They were going to have fun if it was the last thing she did. They all needed it. Ashley quietly moved through the house making a pot of coffee, before heading outside with her cup and sitting on the back porch. She pulled her legs up on the chair as she lit a cigarette and took a long drag off it. It was nice not having to sneak outside in the middle of the night after her parents had fallen asleep to smoke. It was relaxing listening to the waves crash on the shore and while she loved her friends to death, having a moment to herself was just as nice.

Austen had been in Los Angeles for the past three months, working on his new album. His band had gone straight from touring to the recording studio, leaving him little time for himself, but he made sure to make time to call his little sister once a week. His parents had asked him a few months back if he’d stay at their beach house with Ashley and her friends for the summer and he’d immediately made arrangements. If he was being completely honest, he needed some time for his self and to write some new songs. Not to mention it would be a nice break from having fifteen year old fan girls stalking his twitter to find out where he was every second of the day. He needed a change of pace, that much was for sure.

He’d woken up and packed, slipped on his board shorts, black v-neck, and his converse. He loaded his acoustic guitar first followed by his suitcase. Finally he’d said by to his drummer/roommate and he was off. He’d stopped at a Starbucks on the way only to get recognized by a girl and having to give her an autograph. He’d talked for a while with her and let her know how much he appreciated her. He wasn’t extremely famous, nor did he really want to be, but his fan base was incredible and he loved them to death. It was nice to hear their stories and hear how his personal lyrics that meant so much to him, had managed to touch someone else.

When he’d finally gotten to the small, ritz town of Crystal Beach, he drove through the streets and eventually pulled into his families vacation home, right behind his parents Range Rover and cut his engine. The neighborhood was quite, which he’d always loved. It was definitely a drastic change of pace compared to his hectic LA lifestyle he’d been caught up in for the past few months.

He didn’t have a key to the house and when he’d knocked on the front door no one answered, so he slipped around back and smirked when he saw his sister sitting there, smoking. He walked up the stairs of the porch and paused.

“You know Mouse, those things will kill you dead.” He teased, he watched her eyes light up when she saw him and she hopped up from her seat running over to him and wrapping her arms around his neck. Before she took a step back and looked over him.

“It’s about time Ace.” She smirked holding out her cigarette for him and he took it pressing it to his lips and inhaling, before she turned and sat back down and he joined her.

Emerging from a steam filled bathroom, was a rather tall and athletic type of girl as she wore a towel around her body and on the top of her head, wrapped with her hair. She walked over to her closet and tapped her chin with her index finger, wondering on what to wear. She also wondered what kind of activities, or trouble they were going to get into today. With a small shrug of her shoulders, she pulled out her a swimsuit and placed it upon her body. She also continued to place short shorts over the bottom set of the swimsuit but she didn't bother zipping them up or buttoning them.

Samantha eyes diverted towards the mirror as she removed the towel from her head and grabbed her already plugged up hair dryer. After going through her hair a couple of times, she had seen that it was already straightened and didn't want to really bother with it so she just left it alone and went down the stairs towards the kitchen.

She saw that her friend, or best friend, Ashley was sitting back there, along with her totally hot brother, who she just couldn't her eyes off of. A small blush came over her cheeks as she saw that someone had already made some coffee. She fixed herself a cup and took a small sip before sitting the cup on the counter. She leaned over then saw that Zach was coming down the stairs as well. Samantha rolled her eyes at him since he was a pathetic excuse for a young, teenage male.

She decided to muster up all of her nasty thoughts about him and speak. "Hey Zach." She said with a smile then grabbed her cup of coffee and trailed towards the back porch. "Morning, Ashley and Austen. Hope I am not interrupting a brother and sister moment, am I?" She asked with raised of one of her delicate brows, not sitting down just yet. If they were having a private moment, she didn't want to intrude.

Most of his friends didn't know that he had woken up earlier this morning and went for a walk on the beach. His mind traveled back in time and he thought about some of the things he did and said, wishing he could take some of them back and also wishing that he could wipe his Juvenile Hall and Prison record clean - But that wasn't going to happen. He stood there, looking at the sunrise, his hands in his khaki shorts pockets. Zach wasn't really a bad person when you got to know him and there was one person that had ever touch his heart. She doesn't know it yet but he gets a little funny feeling inside when he is around her.

Zach kicked the sand slightly then turned and went back towards the beach house and going up to his room. He did want to smoke some pot but didn't want to scent up the house with the dreadful smell early this morning. He laid down on his bed and stared up at the ceiling, his hands clasped together and his thumbs twiddled with each other. His eyes were getting rather heavy and didn't even try to fight it as he drifted off to sleep.

His eyes opened up slowly as he heard movement in the house. His ears twitched as he leaned up, rubbing the sleep out of his eyes and stretching his arms over his head with a small groan. He stood up and began walking down the stairs, where he seen Samantha leaned over the counter, along with her bosoms. He tried his best not to look but how could he not when they were right there.

Zach wasn't on the best of terms with her but was kind of shocked that she actually spoke. Though she spoke and walked off, not giving him a chance to even strike up a conversation. He let out a small breath then went over to the fridge and grabbed the carton of Orange Juice then pour him a glass. He didn't really drink coffee unless he was trying to get over a hangover, or something. He placed the carton back in the fridge then jumped up on the counter, taking a small sip from his glass.

His legs and feet dangled lazily as his eyes saw that Ashley and Austen were outside on the back porch and Samantha had just joined them. His eyes stared into space as he would wait for someone else to wake up so he wouldn't be so alone.

As Emilia awoke, she shivered. The bed was drenched in her sweat, but she was used to it now. Having leukemia meant occasionally sweating throughout the night, and it was just something she had grown to accept.
Getting out of bed was always a struggle, despite Emilia's eagerness to begin the day. Her day's began with a '3,2,1 .. Go!'
Once she said go out loud, she would sit up in her bed and swing out her legs, wriggling her toes happily.

It was the beginning of Summer vacation. Emilia knew that her time left to live was cut short, but she wasn't going to let that get to her. She was going to have a blast before she ventured off too the place you attend after death, Emilia was sure of that.

Whilst sitting up in bed, Emilia recalled yesterday. She had been looking out her bedroom window when she saw Ashley Dover hop out of her car with other girls. Emilia knew Ashley since they were little, but not that well. Ashley and her older brother Austen always visited next door because it was their holiday home.
Unfortunately, Emilia never really had any friends. Because of her Leukemia she has spent most of her time at home or the hospital and rarely at school. When there was no school, there were also no friends. Emilia didn't mind all too much though, because she had her aunt, uncle and her cousin, which she saw as her older brother.
She had been kneeling next to her window still and watched the girls exit the car into the house.

Emilia slowly hopped out of bed and twirled her way to the mirror where she messed around with her hair. It was quite short because she was still attempting to grow it back after having chemotherapy, but knew it wasn't going to change. She decided it was styled enough before leaving her bedroom and standing out side of Christians room.
Knowing Chris, he probably wasn't awake just yet. Emilia let out a little giggle before opening the door quietly and shouting out Christians name.

It had been a late night for Chris. He had been about town until the early hours of the morning, boarding, surfing and enjoying being outside. Around 1 AM he had fallen asleep on the beach, like many times before. He had been awoken by red and blue lights and two annoying men shouting at him. He had known the two officers as officers of the law, Jensen and Harding. He had met them before on one of his other nightly stake outs. He did not like them very much, but to be honest, he didn't hate them either. Chris' parents always said they were just doing their job, but he disagrees. There were better things to do than to wake someone from his sleep. Weren't there drug dealers to apprehend, weapons to confiscate and burglars to bust?

When they woke him up it had only been 3 AM and he decided to go home to finish his sleep. He picked up his longboard, stepped on it and went home. On the way he saw a few of his works of art. He didn't care what others said, they really brightened up the boring streets. When he arrived back home he saw a car in front of the neighbours house. It had been a while since he had seen them, and even then they never really spoke. He knew there were two parents, one son and one daughter. The girl was his age and the guy must be a bit older than him. He could see flashing lights from their window which probably meant they were watching TV.

Chris walked to the ugly little frog statue that his mother had always loved. Out of the mouth of the artificial amphibian he took the key to the front door. Maybe it wasn't the safest place to keep it, but better that than losing it while surfing. He opened the door to step into the dark house. Definitely no one awake here.... He went up the stairs to his room and fell down on his bed. He was supposed to at least shake some of the sand out of his dreadlocks, but he was too tired. Not ten minutes later his eyes were shut and he was in dreamland.

...

A white sandy beach could be seen in the distance as Chris crossed the waves. He seemed to move with ease, almost like the board was surfing by itself. On the shore he could see people waiving at him. Somehow he could smell bacon and eggs, although he could not tell where it was coming from. Out of no where he could here a scream: "CHRISTIAN!!!" With a shock he woke up and still in the middle of his dream he shouted back: "BACON!" Opening his eyes he was confused for a few seconds. In the door opening he could see Em standing and with the big smile on her face it was very clear that she had been the one shouting his name. With a smile on his face he grabbed his pillow and threw it in her direction. "I'll get you Em, how dare you disturb my beauty sleep."

He stood up from his bed and looked at his sheets. They were filled with sand, and Chris whispered to himself. "Great, no wonder I dream about the beach." He grabbed his sheets by all four corners and shook the sand out of the window. Then he put on some shorts and went downstairs to see if he could get some breakfast, and maybe some revenge...

Amber woke up in one of the rooms of the beach house. She had no idea how she came there. The last thing she remembered was Rachel McAdams kissing James Marsden and after that it was all kind of a blur. She did not hear any noise downstairs, but she did hear someone showering in the room next to hers. She thought of showering herself, but didn't really feel like it. Why should she, she had already showered when they arrived yesterday evening after a full day in the car.

The shower stopped and she waited for a few minutes before getting up. She grabbed a pair of sweatpants and a simple top and jumped into the bathroom before anyone else would beat her to it. After brushing her teeth she put her hair in a ponytail and splashed some water on her face. Hearing her stomach grumble she was thinking of her normal daily breakfast of French toast or scrambled eggs and sausages. It's not all bad to live in a house where your mom is always home, it has its perks. Here she would probably have to do with cereal. She didn't mind at all though. This seemed to be the first time that her controlling parents were not really there to keep an eye on her. Already it felt like heaven.

Fully awake she exited the bathroom and walked down the stairs. From the corner of her eye she saw Zach sitting on the counter when she was on her way to the back porch, where she figured her friends would be. Seeing him there sitting alone she doubted about going outside. Smelling the coffee did it, and she walked over to the kitchen to get a cup. "Good morning" she said softly. She wasn't sure if she should say anything else. She didn't really know the guy and there was something about him that made her doubt if she really wanted to know him. He sat there pretty quietly while Amber poured her cup. She blew on the hot coffee before taking a sip. "I'm just gonna go outside", she walked over to the door, "well, are you coming?"

Not checking if he followed she opened the door to step out on to the back porch. She saw two of her friends and Ashley's brother standing there. In fact Austin was one of her very few exes, although she doubted that he remembered. She had been about 5 or 6 years old when she was playing outside with Ashley, Sam and Ria. Austin had also been outside playing with friends of his own. Out of nowhere Amber had gotten up, walked over to him and asked him to be her boyfriend. He had said yes and she had walked back to her friends not saying anything about what just happened. Only 3 hours later she had gotten up again, walked over once more and told him it was over. So for about 3 hours they were boyfriend and girlfriend. She was pretty sure he had no idea, and she knew for sure that her friends didn't.

She hadn't seen him in a long time, at least not in real life. "Good morning everyone. Hey Austin, how are you doing?" She took another sip of her coffee and felt the warmth going through her body.[color=0091FF] "Is Ria still sleeping?"[/color] She looked around since the Musketeers were not complete until Ria was here.

Emilia burst out laughing as Christian yelled out "BACON!", she didn't even want to know what he was dreaming about. A pillow was thrown at her and it hit her straight in the face, also affecting the way her hair was sitting. "Thank you loser, I just fixed my bed hair and now you've gone and ruined it again."Although she was attempting to sound serious, a little smirk developed from her lips. Emilia noticed all the sand that was on the floor and looked up at Christian,"Were you out again last night? Why don't you ever invite me. You know I love being outside and during the night is when it's more exciting. Next time you don't ask, I'll cut off your dreads while you are sleeping."

Turning around whilst whistling, Emilia walked through the hallway and skipped down the stairs towards the kitchen, where her auntie was sitting at the counter, sipping coffee and reading a shopping catalog.
"Aunt Angela," she said, "I think Christian is going to want bacon. Did you hear him screaming it from the top of his lungs?" Emilia giggled.

"Oh, how typical of him. If he is wanting bacon, then he can make it himself." Aunt Angela said.

Christian was coming down the stairs and Emilia stuck her tongue out at him. "I told Angela about your want...or perhaps need for bacon this morning. You're going to have to make it yourself except you also have to make some for me because you know how much I adore bacon...and because Aunt Angela said you had to" She hopped up onto one of the bar stools beside her aunt, "Oh and did you see that the neighbors are here? Ashley had friends with her, like a few other girls. I didn't really see their faces though, I wonder if they are attractive. Chris, I dare you to go over there later, maybe there is a girl there waiting for you." Emilia laughed and hopped over to her cousin, wrapping her arms around him and squeezing as tight as she could. "Ya know I'm messing with you. Plus, if you were to find a girlfriend, I would need to accept!"

Most of the time, Emilia acted as if her illness wasn't there. She would hop and skip around, trying to act as normal as possible. She glanced up at the clock on the wall, which is something she hated doing. Emilia didn't like looking at clocks and never wanted to know what the time was. While she looked at the clock, she was mesmerized by the movement of the little arrows. Tick tock, tick tock. The ticking was very faint but when Emilia blocked everything out, she could hear it. It was like the sound of a bomb, counting down before it would explode. When looking at clocks, it seemed as if her time was being slowly diminished. It was just ticking away the seconds, minutes and hours Emilia had left to live. She let out a quick sigh, before smiling again.
Time was her weakness, her enemy, but she wouldn't let it get to her, especially during the last few months of her life.

Ria sighed, rolled over, and plunged her face into her pillow again. She suspected that all her friends had gotten up now, but she really didn’t want to move, even though she was excited to start the holiday. The journey yesterday had exhausted her, and she had been having bad dreams all night. She had seen her ex while she was out alone yesterday morning, buying a few last minute things, and it had really scared her. No matter how hard she tried, she couldn’t stop him from controlling her, not completely. She couldn’t stop him from scaring her.

Deciding that her friends were probably waiting for her, she groaned, sat up and swung her legs out of the bed. Fumbling around in her wardrobe, she grabbed some jeans and a jumper, and went to the bathroom to have a shower. The water woke her up a bit more, and once she was dressed she quickly brushed her teeth and combed her hair, letting it hang loose over her shoulders.

She slowly walked downstairs, greeted Zach and made herself a cup of tea, a drink that she preferred over coffee. Even though she could see her friends outside, she took her time, making sure that it was perfect. There was nothing better than a nice cup of sugary tea in the mornings.

Picking up her mug, Ria stepped outside, but hovered next to the door. “Good morning, girlies,” she greeted, then took in the presence of Ashley’s brother. “And Austen,” she added. “Who’s hungry? I was thinking of making breakfast now. What does everyone want?”

That was Ria for you. Always the good girl, always the helpful. It was in her nature, and it made her happy. Plus, it could always distract her from whatever was on her mind.

“So Mouse, have you told mom and dad you’re going to disappoint them, just like I did.” He smirked and Ashley matched his smirk with one almost identical to his as she rolled her eyes.

“No.” she said simply. “I haven’t told the girls yet either, so let’s keep that topic on the DL alright biggs.” She said just as the back door opened and she glanced up to see Sam and she gave her friend a smile.

"Morning, Ashley and Austen. Hope I am not interrupting a brother and sister moment, am I?" Austin gave her a simple two finger wave and a nod as a greeting. She was beautiful, but that was nothing new, Austen had grown up around the girls they’d always been pretty every single one of them.

“Course not doll.” Ashley said happy to have her friend join them. “Take a seat babe, I was just telling Austen here how much I missed him, right boo?” she said glancing to her older brother and Austen nodded, giving a small chuckle.

Before Austen had a chance to speak up, Amber was next to emerge from the door. Austen had to admit, he’d missed his girls. He doubted that they even knew that he thought of them as his girls, but he did they were all like sister’s to him simply because he’d known them for so long. Ashley’s one rule was she didn’t care if he dated any of them, but it’s hoes before bros and just cause he was her brother didn’t mean she wouldn’t kick his ass for hurting one of her friends.

"Good morning everyone. Hey Austin, how are you doing?" Ashley glanced up to Amber as she spoke. "Is Ria still sleeping?"

“Pretty good, glad to be back with my favorite ladies of course.” He said shooting her a charming smile to which he heard his sister scoff. “I haven’t seen her so I assume so.” He shrugged.

Just then as if she’d been cued, Ria stepped out of the back door and Ashley smiled to her as she grabbed Amber’s wrist gently and pulled her into her lap. She loved her friends more then they knew and they were ridiculously close, but she wouldn’t have it any other way.

“Good morning, girlies, And Austen,” Ria chirped happily, which only put Ashley in a better mood, Ria was always happy which seemed to put everyone else in a good mood. “Who’s hungry? I was thinking of making breakfast now. What does everyone want?” she asked happily.

“Oh! I’ll help.” Ash said kissing Amber’s cheek, before pushing her up gently and grabbing Austen and pulling him up from his chair. “You need to unpack Ace.” She said glancing to Sam and Amber. “You ladies mind helping my handsome brother bring all his shit inside, while Ria and I make breakfast?” she asked. “Oh and Austy, why don’t you stop by Chris and Em’s house and see is they’d like to join us for breakfast.” She smiled, interlocking her arm with Ria’s.

“Chris and Em still live next door?” he asked and Ashley nodded. The dover family had been vacationing in crystal beach every summer their entire lives, so it was only natural that they knew their neighbors. In face Chris and Ash used to keep Em company on hot summer days in the hospital when they were kids, while Austen would sing to her.

“Duh.” Ashley said, like he was an idiot. “Zach attack spent the night last night, he really missed us.” Ashley smirked. Zach was their other neighbor and Ashley had always had a crush on him, she could remembered, sitting on the porch in the mornings waiting for him to leave the house or writing Mrs. Chesterfield all over her notebooks when she’d have to go home after summer, but she doubted he even remembered her name most the time.

Austen raised a brow. “Really now?” Austen had never really cared for Zach, he was the kind of guy he tried not to be.

“Go.” Ashley ordered as she opened the door and pulled Ria inside with her. She went over to the stereo and slipped in one of Lady Gaga’s older CDs and turned up load as she made her way into the kitchen to help her friend cook breakfast.

Ria smiled at Ashley’s offer to help, watching the display of sisterly affection in front of her and finding it quite normal.

You ladies mind helping my handsome brother bring all his shit inside, while Ria and I make breakfast?” Ash asked Sam and Amber. “Oh and Austy, why don’t you stop by Chris and Em’s house and see is they’d like to join us for breakfast.”

Ria wasn’t sure if she knew who Chris and Em were, or if she’d met them before, but she decided to save her questions until they were inside.

She linked arms with Ash and followed her inside, or rather, was dragged behind her. While her friend was putting some music on, Ria gathered the necessary equipment to cook their breakfast. When Ash came back into the kitchen, she decided to ask about the neighbours.

“Did you have a good night’s sleep?” She began politely, before getting straight to the point. “Do I know Chris and Em?” She asked, washing her hands so that she could start cooking. “I don’t really remember.”

Chris listened to his cousin with rolling eyes as he often did. The talking genes of the family must have come from his mothers side, because his Em and his mom could both talk his ears off, while he and his dad hardly said a word. Chris didn't think that his cousin was right How can a person ever be lonely if you're surfing almost every day. If only he could ever say no to her, but he had never been able to. Not before she got sick and not during her sickness, to him she was his little sister and she had heard the word 'no' more than enough in her life. Who was he to say the same thing...Fine, fine, we'll go after breakfast and getting dressed. And if you want to run my life, like you do so well, do you want to pick out my clothes as well? What kind of food do you think mom made? If it's any kind of desert, I'm keeping it. He replied to her with a wink. At least he had surfing to look forward to. And maybe they had plans already and wouldn't have a lot of time for Em and him.

The eggs and bacon were done and he grabbed some plates from one of the cupboards. Each plate he filled with two slices of toast, some bacon and a freshly finished omelet. He put the plates on the counter and got some cutlery. Handing Em her fork and knife he sat himself on another bar stool on the opposite side of his cousin. Looking at his plate he started to dig in only to be finished 5 minutes later. Why does it always take so much time to make, and so little to eat... He stood up and put his dirty dish in the sink. Em..., I'm going to take a shower and brush my teeth, then I'll be done. And by the way, I would love to become an old man with dreads. With that he climbed up the stairs.

Back in his room he quickly undressed and stepped into his bathroom. He turned on the shower so the water could get warm. Then he prepared his toothbrush before he stepped under the nice hot water. They were lucky enough to have a bathroom with every bedroom. He never had to share and nobody cared how long he stood under the shower. Even now there was still sand coming from his hair and body, that stuff just gets everywhere... He was only in the shower for about 15 minutes before he got out, kind of a record time for him. Coming out he searched for his swimming shorts, they were going to surf afterwards, so best to be prepared. Since it seemed impolite to him to meet new people without a shirt on, he grabbed one from his cupboard. Seeing as they lived next to the beach he thought he would be okay without shoes or flip flops. Last but not least he opened his drawer of wrist bands. He'd never counted them, but he must have at least 50 matching sets.He grabbed one for his left arm, and one for his right arm.

He went down the stairs again and called for Em' as he came down. "Well..., am I approved?" He spread his arms and turned around in front of his cousin.

Amber smiled at Austin's answer. He'd better be happy to see us, we have been his 4 biggest fans since before he could even play one note. Hearing the sliding door open she turned around to see Ria coming out as if Amber's question had been a magic spell. Before she could say anything Ashley had pulled her on her lap. Although it was sudden and she hadn't expected it, she felt quite comfortable with her new seat. She tried to hide a big yawn, but wasn't doing a very good job. Still feeling tired she laid her head down on Ashley's shoulder. Thank goodness that Ria mentioned breakfast, her stomach had continued to grumble lightly ever since she stepped out of bed. She could also be glad that Ash would help with breakfast. Amber herself had never prepared any food in her entire life, as her friend knew all too well. The highest culinary achievement she had reached was emptying a bag of chips in a bowl and opening a jar of onion dip.

Ash kissed her cheek and as if a command Amber stood up. Standing again she stretched and was happy to help with getting Austin's stuff into the house. At least that was something she could do. "Okay Aussy, key me! If you just ask the neighbours over, I'm sure Sam and I can talk Zach into helping us." she said while putting her arms around Sam's shoulders. "We can be your roadies for today." Amber grabbed Sam's hand and dragged her inside after her. She walked straight to Zach, took the juice from his hand and put it on the counter before grabbing his hand with her free one. "Zach.., us ladies need a hand with Austin's stuff and I think this one will do perfectly." She waited patiently to see if he would come with or not.

If they would hurry up with emptying the car breakfast would be done much sooner. It didn't make much sense, but Amber believed in that. She was curious to meet the other neighbours. She had heard enough in stories, but had never really seen them. And quite honestly Ashley usually spoke more about her other neighbour, Zach. She didn't really know what Ashley saw in him, but Amber was sure she had her reasons.

Samantha smiled towards Ashley when she stated that she wasn’t interrupting but her response about missing Austen made her smile even more. She couldn’t even look at Austen without blushing, or looking off to the side. She sat down in a chair beside Ashley, which so happen is right in front of Austen. When she saw his lips were moving to speak, he didn’t because Amber emerged from the inside, along with Zach. She rolled her eyes at them both, ruining a moment of perfection, which was Austen speaking. She often wondered if Austen knew that she had a major crush on him but she also kept her distant to prevent from being hurt – Again.

When Austen finally did speak, he basically said that he missed spending time with everyone. Luckily for her, Ria was next to come to the back porch, so she didn’t have to hide her blush any longer. “I want pancakes!” She squealed while raising her hand briefly. Her eyes fluttered over towards Ash, who eagerly wanted to help with breakfast. Sam would’ve helped as well but she was volunteered to help Austen unload his bags. What she look like, a bellman? She chuckled softly while shrugging her shoulders. “Su..” She couldn’t even finish agreeing to help before being dragged inside by Amber.

She stopped to see if Zach was willing to help. “After the way he acted outside, I seriously doubt that he’ll help much. He’s probably still high off some illegal shit.” She removed her linked arm from Amber’s while walking towards the outside, not feeling the least bit sorry for her words towards Zach.

She didn’t really hate him – She just didn’t like his actions after high school. She simply shook her head to herself as she waited beside Austen’s car for Amber.

Zach sipped his glass of orange juice again then seen Amber walk down the stairs. A smile crept across his face as she spoke to him. “Morning.” He instantly replied while looking down then back up at her when she invited him to go outside. He wasn’t so sure how everyone actually felt about him, considering his track record with drugs, drinking, prison and the list goes on and on. Zach jumped off of the counter and walked outside, right behind Amber as he didn’t really speak to anyone. He felt their eyes burning a hole through him though. He wasn’t in the talking mood this morning, maybe it was because he is not really a morning person.

He really missed everyone but how would they feel about him being on probation now. His head lowered to the ground with a sigh as his eyes went up to Ria when she mentioned breakfast. At that time, he started making his way back into the kitchen and sat right back up on the counter. His eyes flashed towards Ashley and Ria as they entered the kitchen. He smiled towards them and nodded his head slightly.

It seemed like he didn’t have time to say anything since he had his orange juice taken from him by Amber. His usual remark would be to call her a bitch but he held it in, which he likes to call progress. He was fixing to respond and agree but heard Samantha’s words then couldn’t take it anymore. “What is your problem with me?!” Zach asked Samantha, who didn’t bother listening but just simply walked away. He huffed while eyeing Amber, Ashley and Ria then turned around, walking upstairs to the guest room, where he stayed the night.

Zach slammed the door behind him absolutely angry with Samantha after her accusations on him in front of Amber, Ria and most importantly, Ashley. He’s been clean for almost a month now – Honestly. He sat down on the edge of his bed and his head in his hands as he let out a frustrated yell.
