"Hey guys" Torrie replied coming down stair greeting her brothers who were playing cards in the living room
"Hey Tor, dad said when you wake up to go and see him, he is in his office downstairs" Tim told his sister who nodded and head downstairs
"Dad, the guys said you wanted to see me" Torrie said entering her dad's office seeing him at work
"Ah yes, sit down sweetie" Al told his daughter as he pulled out an envelope from inside his desk
"So what's up" Torrie asked
"I was wondering do you have any plans, for spring break this week"
Torrie shook her head "Nope, I will be in this house all week"
"Well, I don't know about that" Al replied giving to Torrie the envelope
"What is this?" Torrie asked opening it "A plane ticket, are you sending me somewhere" Torrie asked
"Not just anywhere, I am sending you to Boston" Al surprised Torrie who jumped up and down
"OH MY GOSH DAD, ARE YOU SERIOUS" Torrie screamed
"The proof is right their in your hands" Al smiled "I mean you haven't seen your friends down their in four months, so why not…but you better get ready your plane leaves in two hours"
"Daddy this is the greatest, thank you" Torrie replied kissing her dad on the cheek and running back upstairs to pack
"Hey kid, I was thinking maybe before practice we could go get some breakfast, we haven't talked in a while, so we could catch up" John Sr. replied entering his John's room who was getting dress
"Sure, why not" John said as he put on his shoes
"So what do you want to eat?" John Sr. replied as he and John left the house
"Um, doesn't matter" John replied looking out of his window
"Yeah, I will eat anything" John told his dad as they continued to drive
"Waffle house it is" John Sr. told his son as they pulled into the Waffle House parking lot and walking into the Waffle House "There's a table right there "
John looked at his dad who just stared back
"What did you want to talk about?"
"Nothing in particular, so how is it going…"John Sr. asked his son
"Fine" John simply answered
"Dad if you are wondering about Torrie, which I know you are…I haven't talked to her in a month" John said to his dad
"Oh, you haven't talk to Torrie in a month" John Sr. asked his son who shook his head
"Nope, it was all good for three months because we e-mailed, we text, we called, but now I call she is either sleep, busy, or not home, she don't e-mail or text me back so I don't know what's going on" John explained
"Oh" John Sr. nodded
"I knew this long distance thing wasn't going to work"
"But, I am proud of you holding up these past four months the way you did, I mean you have been doing good in school, we still don't see a lot of you now because of baseball but that's okay" John Sr. smiled at his son who smiled back "So is there another girl, you are involved with"
John smiled "Kinda"
"What do you mean kind of?"
"There is this one girl at school, we are suppose to hang out after my practice today" John finished
"Oh" John's dad nodded
"Speaking of which we need to hurry up practice start in 20 minutes" John told his dad as they finished their breakfast.
"Torrie…TORRIE, I'M OVER HERE"
"Aunt Nikki… Aunt Nikki" Torrie screamed running up to her aunt as she got off the plane
"Hey, I missed you" Nikki told her niece
"I miss you too" Torrie smiled
"How was your flight?" Torrie's aunt replied picking up her carrying her niece bags to the car
"It was okay" Torrie smiled getting in the front seat "I am so happy to be back in Boston"
"We are happy to have you back" Nikki replied driving "So, tell me about the new lifestyle, and tell me about Idaho, your brothers, your dad, friends, boys"
Torrie laughed "Well, it's not as bad as I thought it would be Al is a great father, I love my bros, school is okay I am doing pretty good, and I have a few people I associate with.
"Okay not that bad" Torrie's aunt agreed
"But I am ready to see my real friends, and my special friend" Torrie laughed as Nikki rolled her eyes at her niece comment "I've been so busy with a lot of school crap, with me being behind and all I haven't talk to him in like a full month" Torrie explained "Speaking of which do you mind dropping me off at the Cena's" Torrie asked
"No problem, I have to get back to work anyway" Nikki smiled "Tor everyone is going to be excited that you are here.
"Here we are" Torrie's aunt replied pulling into the Cena's drive
"Thanks" Torrie said getting out of the car "Now I will call you when, I'm done here okay"
"Okay" Nikki replied driving off
Torrie took a deep breath and knocked on the door with a smile
"Coming" Mrs. Cena yelled from the inside
"Hi Mrs. Cena" Torrie smiled
"Torrie Oh my gosh…what are you doing here?" Carol replied greeting Torrie with a hug and inviting her into the house
"Its spring break, my dad surprised with a ticket down here" Torrie explained looking around the house
"Oh, if you are looking for John he is on his way to baseball practice" Carol smirked seeing Torrie's eyes wondering
"Oh, he still plays at West Newbury park" Torrie asked
"Yeah, so if you want to go down there, to watch him practice…"
"Yeah, I think I should surprise him" Torrie replied about to the leave the house "Thanks for having me Mrs. Cena, I'll see you later"
"Bye Torrie" Carol replied watching Torrie walk
"Nice hit John" Coach Peterson yelled with excitement
"Thanks coach" John smiled
"Now, everybody bring it in "the coach replied wrapping up practice "You guys have been doing really great, which is why I am ending practice a little early today, now I want you guys to eat a good meal tonight and tomorrow morning and get a goodnight sleep, report here tomorrow in full uniform ready to win at 8:00 in the morning"Coach Peterson ordered giving the boys instructions "Practice dismiss"
John heard a voice come behind "Oh hey Taylor"
"Hey, are we still going out" Taylor asked nervously
"Umm…sure" John hesitated as he saw someone who looked familiar from a distance "But, could you hold on for a second" John said running
"Okay" Taylor replied as she saw John run towards some girl
"Torrie" John yelled running up
Torrie smiled"Hey stranger"
"Hey, what are you doing here?"
Torrie rolled her eyes "I have been away for four months and all you got for me is what are you doing here…give me a hug" Torrie replied giving John a hug
"Yeah, it's just that I haven't heard from you in a month, and all of a sudden you are here in Boston" John replied looking for an explanation from Torrie
"Oh, sorry I have been busy…with school" Torrie replied looking at John "But forget about that lets just hang out I am only here for like three days" Torrie replied grabbing John's hand
"Torrie I can't" John replied pulling back
"Why, did you forget something"Torrie asked
John looked back at Taylor who was still there "More like someone" John replied looking down
"I kind of have this thing" John tried to explain
Torrie laughed thinking John was kidding "What thing"
"Torrie I have a date, I have to go to right now"
Torrie laughed "John stop joking, let's go"
"Torrie I am not kidding, see that girl over there" John replied pointing at Taylor and waving his hand as a signal for her to come over there "She just started going to our school like two months ago" John explained
"Hi" Taylor replied with a smile approaching Torrie and John
Torrie stared at her
"Taylor this is Torrie, Torrie this is Taylor" John replied introducing them
"Hi" Taylor replied again
"Hey" Torrie forced a smile
a moment of silence took place
"So, you two have a date?" Torrie finally asked
"Yeah" Taylor smiled looking at John, who just stared at Torrie
"Oh, okay then you two should get going, Taylor it was nice meeting you, John bye" Torrie replied walking away with a fake smile
John stared at Torrie and then back a Taylor and smiled "Let's go" John replied grabbing Taylor's hand
"Who was that?" Taylor asked
John looked back at Torrie was barely in sight "Oh she use to live down here, and she use to be my best friend then girlfriend for like a couple of days"
Taylor smiled "Why so short?"
"Oh her mom died and she had to move to Idaho with her dad, which was like four months ago" John finished
"Oh…that sucks" Taylor replied with a frown
"How long were you two best friends?"
John laughed "Longer then we been alive…our moms were best friends so we have been by each others side since we came out of the wound"
Taylor nodded and smiled as John looked at her
"So it's been a month, how do you like it in Boston so far?" John asked changing the subject
"Oh, it's great"
"Okay" John replied expecting more of a conversation "What about West Newbury High"
"That's great too" Taylor smiled at John who just looked at her
"Hey you" Nikki replied coming into the guess room where niece was laying on the bed staring at the ceiling
Torrie smiled "Hey"
"What are you doing?" Nikki asked laying on the bed next to Torrie
"Nothing, just been thinking"
"How I have to go back to Idaho in two more days and today wasn't that great"
"Why what happened?"
Torrie took a deep breath "John has a girlfriend"
"What?" Nikki asked surprised
"Well, I don't think it's his girlfriend yet but, he went out on a date today" Torrie explained
"Oh wow, are you mad?" Nikki asked looking at looking at Torrie
"DUH" Torrie yelled
"Because we never broke up, according to my memory we are still together"
Nikki rolled her eyes
"What? Am I wrong?" Torrie asked
Torrie looked at her aunt with a shocked expression her face
"Torrie, sweetie look you know me I am going to tell you the truth and not what you want to hear" Nikki explained to her niece "Torrie, you live half way across the country, do you really think you two will really work out as a couple? And you said it yourself you haven't talk to him in a month, you two trying to make it work is not fair to you and it's not fair to him, because half way across the country makes a big difference" Nikki replied leaving Torrie to think
The next morning:
"Hey, are you almost ready?" Carol replied sticking her head into John's room
"Yeah, I'll be down in a second" John said getting ready for his baseball game
"Oh, and you have a visitor at your window" Carol smirked as her and John looked at his window and saw a smiling Torrie who waved
"I saw her climbing the tree on my way up here" Carol laughed and left the room as John opened the window
"Hey John" Torrie smiled
"Hey, I take it you are not mad at me anymore" John asked inviting Torrie into his room
"I was never mad at you…I was just mad at the fact" Torrie explained
John nodded "Tor…"
"No, John let me speak…It wasn't fair that I got mad I mean I haven't returned any of your phone calls for awhile and it's not fair for either one of us…I guess I will just have to face it that it's not going to work with you here in Boston and me in Idaho, and we can't wait on each other because that's like putting our life on hold and that's not fair either" Torrie explained
John nodded "I know I am moving on but I never wanted to give up a 16 year friendship"
"I know, so let's agree" Torrie replied holding out her pinky finger that John locked with his "We have to promise when ever we have time to give each other a call or and e-mail it may not be everyday it may not be every month, but whenever we are just sitting around doing nothing to call each other" Torrie made John promise
"In shorter version let's always keep in touch" John smiled at Torrie who smiled back
"So you coming to my game today" John asked
"Oh yeah, but only for a inning or two, I told Trish I will hang out with Her all day then I have to go see everyone else" Torrie explained
John smiled "Okay, I'll tell my mom they can go so we can walk together and you can tell me all about your new lifestyle in Idaho and I will tell you about my great grades and what's been going on here in Boston and in school" John replied opening the door and seeing all of his brothers, his mom, and his dad with their ears at the door
John looked at Torrie before both of them started to laugh
"Um…go ahead we got the memo" Carol replied leading everyone away from the door
John looked back at Torrie "Okay let's go" John replied as he and Torrie climbed out of his window "So friend…" John replied as Torrie laughed "How's life in Idaho"
"Well where do I start…"
