*Later that evening, Ally's POV*
The street lights created a soft glow in our bedroom as we laid side by side, neither one of us speaking. I looked over to him watching him write in his journal before bringing myself closer into his body and resting my head on his chest. He lightly kissed the top of my head and began stroking my hair with his fingers.
"I love you Tyler" I whispered.
"I love you too" He replied as he wrapped his arm around me tighter. One again we were back to the familiar silence.
"Baby what are you thinking?" I questioned causing him to sigh lightly.
"What am I thinking, I'm think about you, about this baby, how in the hell I'm going to give you both the life you deserve. In case you haven't noticed were not exactly living in style" He informed me. I shook my head when I heard his unfounded fears.
"Tyler, I don't need a high rise in Manhatten" I began before he sighed and turned his head to the side.
"No, look at my face. Look at me babe." I instructed as I pulled his face towards mine.
"I already have everything I need. I have you, I have a baby, in May I'll have a degree in Journalism. Were gonna be okay" I reminded him as I gently kissed his lips.
"I'm sorry I've been such a crazy pregnant bitch lately" I murmered as I continued to kiss his lips and neck.
"S'okay, there are some aspects of your pregnancy I rather enjoy" He smiled as his hand found is way up my shirt.
"Mmmm" I moaned slightly as I hooked my legs onto the side and stradled his waist.
"Okay kids! I got the popcorn, the movies, chips, some dip. Were all set!" Aidan boomed as he bounced into the apartment.
I groaned as I brought my fingers through my hair. "Hey Aidan, perfect timing" I laughed. Tyler sighed as I removed my body from his.
"Dude, could you have possibly come at a worse time?" He cringed.
"Hey, it's foreplay, trust me I could have seen a lot worse!" He reminded us.
"Come on I'll start the popcorn, you kiddies get readjusted and we'll pop the movie in" He smiled before jetting off back to the kitchen. Tyler glanced at me with an irritated look. "What was it you said bout...5 minutes ago about not needing anything else?" He questioned.
"Hey! I love this apartment, even if it does require living with an assoholic with adhd" I laughed as I got up and walked out.
"We need a place of our ownnnn" Tyler called out.
"I'm not listeningggg!"
The door to her room was once again shut and locked, as it had been almost constantly for the past 2 months. Getting Caroline to talk with us was never an easy tast, and I was truly struggling with how to get through to her. I knocked gently on the door as usual to try and get her attention.
"Caroline, sweetheart are you almost ready?" I asked.
"I told you already, I'm not going!" She boomed.
"Honey...you haven't seen Tyler in weeks, he misses you" I reminded her again.
"I just wanna be left alone" She grumbled and I backed away. I was getting nowhere when the door opened and in walked Tyler with Ally.
"I got nowhere, I'm sorry. She's got the door locked and refuses to come out" I explained as Tyler sighed and ran his fingers through his hair.
"Would it be okay if I gave it a shot?" Ally questioned causing Tyler and I to look at her.
"Oh, of course, by all means! Please, give it a shot" I explained as I moved off to the side.
"Tyler I'll make you some coffee and we can talk in the kitchen if you'd like?" I suggested.
"Sure thing mom...lemme know if you need me" He whispered to Ally as we walked away.
"Go away!" I groaned as I heard another knock at my door.
"Caroline its Ally, can we talk?" I heard her ask gently.
"No, I'm fine. I don't need to talk" I yelled.
"Okay cool, well then in that case, can I borrow 20 bucks?" She asked. I sat up in bed shaking my head as I got up and walked over to the door.
"You wanna borrow 20 bucks?!" I questioned.
"No, but it got you to open the door didn't it?" She smiled causing me to groan as I left the door open and flopped back down on my bed.
"You know, when I was your age, I didn't really have any females to talk to. It was always just me and my dad, and I always really wanted someone that I felt like I could talk to, who understood me. Caroline you don't have to talk if you don't want to, but I want you to know that I'm here for you. If you ever need someone to talk with about anything you can always come to me. And no matter what you tell me, I promise you it will always stay between us." She explained to me. I sat on my bed with my arms around my legs and my head to my chest, slowly I let kit rise and looked up at her.
"I don't wanna go out with you and Tyler today" I whispered.
"Any reason why?" Ally asked me.
"Because...because he's gonna die. Because he almost did die. First I loose Michael, then I almost loose Tyler. I'm sick of it. I can't see Tyler anymore, this way, when he does die, I won't be attatched, and it won't be so painful." I finally admitted. Ally shook her head before enveloping me in a tight hug for quite some time. When she finally let go, she had tears in her eyes.
"Caroline, what happened to Michael was a horrible, horrible thing. I know how much it hurts to loose someone you love, and you'll never get over that feeling. I wish I could say that you will but you wont. It's been 10 years since I lost my mother and I'm still not over it. I still love her as much as I did before, maybe even more. Baby people die, that's life. Their born, and eventually their going to die. Septemeber 11th was a horrific day, and were still trying to deal with what happened and come to terms with things even 2 months after. It's going to take a while to heal, but Tyler made it Caroline. He's okay, and I know you're scared, honey I'm scared too. But you can't go through life avoiding relationships because you're afraid of loosing someone, or getting hurt. If you never love, you'll never hurt, but it's pretty damn lonely by yourself" She explained. It didn't take long for the tears to begin for me and I reached over to hug Ally tightly.
"I love you Ally, and I'm sorry for being such a stupid kid lately" I apologized.
"You my dear, are in no way stupid! You may just be the smartest 11 year old I know. And by far the coolest" She laughed as I smiled.
"So does this mean you'll come to lunch with Tyler and I today?" She asked. I nodded my head in response and we hugged once more before getting up and walking out together. Without saying a word I ran over and wrapped my arms around Tyler's waist tightly.
"I'm sorry" I whispered as he rubbed my hair with his hand.
"I missed you mistro" He chuckled.
