You know the deal...so i finally got a new chapter....miracles do happen see.

I woke up to the delightful smell of waffles. Looking at the clock I saw that it was only eight a.m. I decided to get out of bed and follow the astonishing aroma. To my surprise I saw Jeff taking a waffle out of the waffle maker and pouring more batter in.

"Good to know that you can cook breakfast." I startled him. He turned to me and smiled.

"I don't think pouring instant batter into a waffle iron qualifies as cooking." Jeff joked as he placed two waffles on a plate and handed it to me.

"Thanks" I grabbed the plate and bottle of syrup and sat down. "I think its better cooking than the breakfast I make everyday. I mean don't get me wrong it's my favorite and easy but good cooking is nice to have too." I drizzled the syrup upon my waffle and started to cut it.

"And what is that?" he asked.

"Butter and strawberry jelly toast." I said with a slight smile.

"Well damn, if I had known that I could have saved time and effort." I cut my eyes at him and laughed.

"No way Jeff this is perfect. I love waffles. Amber used to make them every time I stayed the night with her " He took the waffles out of the iron and placed them on the plate, sat down, topped them with syrup and butter, and started eating.

"And whose are better? Mine or hers?" He had a haughty look on his face at this moment. I assumed he wanted a response that would boost his ego. And of course I'd give it to him.

"Oh most definitely yours are the best I've ever had." I said with the straightest face possible.

"Thank you, thank you very much" Jeff replied with his best Elvis impression. I giggled. I was done eating; just sitting there, dragging my fork through the excess syrup. Jeff had finished his food as well. I grabbed his plate as well as my own and walked to the sink to rinse them off.

"That was yummy, but you need to take a shower. I will clean up and you can use my shower to avoid Amber's dirty bathroom." I said as I washed the dishes.

"Okay" he replied. He went upstairs to get his clothes and stuff. Eventually he came back down and took his shower. By the time I got done cleaning up, he was done with his shower. He came out wearing blue jeans and a black and white t-shirt. I took my shower, put on blue jeans with holes all over, and put on my lime green and black Fox shirt. I straightened my hair and put on mascara and eyeliner. Today was a not so glam day. I walked into the living room to find Jeff watching tv.

"Okay, mister. Are you ready to go?" I asked

"Sure where are we going?" he questioned.

"We have to stop by my moms and then I have a surprise for you."

We walked out the door and got in the Jeep, headed towards my moms.

"So what's my surprise?" Jeff tried to get it out of me.

"Not going to tell yah." I said grinning at him.

"Can't blame me for trying right?"

"Nope, but that was a pretty lame attempt." I laughed.

"Yea.."

"Oh My God!!" I interrupted him with a squeal.

"What?!?" Jeff asked frightened.

"I love this song." I replied as I turned the music up.

"Vanilla Ice Ice Baby" We both began to sing.

As the song ended we both laughed. We arrived at my moms and went into the house,

"Mom I'm here" I heard her coming down the stairs.

"Hey honey. Who's your friend?" She pointed at Jeff.

"Oh, Momma this is Jeff Hardy. He's staying with me until we have to go back to work in a couple of days."

"Well it's nice to meet you Jeff. You can call me Mel, Melissa, or Mom which ever is best for you."

"Nice to meet you too, Mel." Jeff replied. His southern accent stood out for that moment.

I whispered to my mom "I need those passes."

"Okay I'll be right back."

Mom went up stair. My phone rang. It was a number I recognized but didn't want to answer. I rolled my eyes and pushed the ignore button.

"That bad of a person huh?" Jeffasked.

"The worst. I've changed my number twice because of that person, my ex from five years ago. Some how he seems to find me and make life complicated."

"I'll protect you." He replied in an almost joking yet serious way.

"Oh Jeffy!" I said sarcastically, as I threw my arms around him. We both laughed. Right then my mom came down stairs. She handed me the passes. I slid them in my back pocket.

"Yall better get going. Love yah and have fun." My mom said giving me a hug and walking us to the door.

"Mkay momma Love you Too."

We left my moms and got on the interstate. About ten minutes later we arrived at the Norfolk Zoo. Jeff gave me a weird look. The 'what the hell are we doing here' look. I was enjoying his confusion. We got out of the Jeep and I handed him one of the passes. We walked up to the employee desk. We were greeted by the woman sitting there.

"Hey Emma."

"Oh, hey Ashley. I didn't recognize you with a guy on you're arm." (No he wasn't literally on my arm, but that's how Emma puts it)

"Oh hush. We want to feed the babies." The moment I said that Jeff's eyes lit up. Like a kid on Christmas morning.

"You're just in time. You know where to go."

"Thanks Emma." We headed toward the lion habitat.

"So we get to feed the lion cubs?" Jeff was excited.

"Yep. Thanks to my momma. She's been working here for the past fifteen years and I've been helping out for about ten years."

" That's pretty cool." I pointed to the bucket of raw meat, signaling for him to pick it up.

"So when we walk in give them some time to sniff you and adjust, okay?"

"Got yah." We walked in the lion cubs came straight to me. They went up to Jeff as well but it did take them a while to get used to him. Once they were adjusted, we started feeding them. About thirty minutes later we left the lion cubs so they could take their naps. We ended up walking around the whole zoo and didn't get out of there until seven. Jeff and I were starving, so we stopped and ate at the Macaroni Grill. As we were going home Jeff's Phone rang.

"Hey bro, what's up?"Jeff answered the phone. Obviously it was Matt.

"Well Beth just came by and dropped off the keys to your house and told me to let you know she's done. So my question is what did you do?"

"Why would I be the one to do something wrong? But anyways, the other night I told Beth that you and Ashley swapped rooms and she flipped, plus she did her regular bitching. Somehow we got to her moving out and mess. Which is why I'm not home right now."

"Oh yeah where exactly are you?"

"Ashley offered me an escape and I took full advantage of her offer."

"That was nice of her, but are you going to be here tomorrow. Or did you forget that we were having a cook out at my place for Shane's birthday?"

"Oh man I did I can come home though and be there in time for the party."

"Why don't you ask Ashley if she'd like to come. She can meet the guys and Amy liked her so she'll have a chic to keep her company."

"Okay hold on."

"Hey Ash, do you want to go to a cook out tomorrow?"

"Uhhhh sure." I replied.

"She said yeah. Ight bro I'll see you tomorrow. Bye" He hung up the phone.

We got home, put a movie in and both fell asleep, Jeff in the recliner and myself on the couch. And yes Koda was a traitor and slept with Jeff. Rrrrg!
