Chapter 9

It has been exactly 5 days since my high school crush had died. Two days ago was the funeral and everything was still quiet.

Sure Kelly still came every day to hang out with us but things weren't the same anymore.

One day, Kelly came with two tickets and smiled at Amy.

"Wanna go out with me? Get things off your mind? I have tickets to the amusement park."

I looked at Amy, she shrugged.

"Sure I guess..."

Kelly looked at me, I smiled softly. She was trying so hard to make us feel better. "I'll go."

She clapped happily, "lets go then!"

We left and I locked the door behind me. Getting into my car, we headed to the park.

"They're showing a dinosaur show and snoopy is going to be there too!" Kelly said excited. "Kids like that kind of stuff right?"

I looked at her and laughed, looking in the rearview mirror, I noticed Amy staring through the window sadly.

"So Amy, what do you want to ride first?" Kelly asked.

"I've never been to an amusement park was always to sick to go."

"Well then I'll make sure you have the greatest time ever!" Kelly announced getting excited.

Amy smiled weakly at Kelly, "I'm looking forward to it."

I smiled once again as we continued our way to the park.


"Good thing you got these tickets..." I said as I looked over the long ticket booth line.

"Yep! And and I have all day passes too!"

Getting through the much shorter line to get into the park, Kelly grabbed a map. "I am the host. So it is up to me to make sure you both have a great time."

We walked and I notice a roller coaster. "Ever want to ride a coaster?" I asked Amy.

She went pale, "I'm afraid of heights..."

"Just one... please?"

Kelly smiled, "they're so fun! You get this weird feeling in your stomach too."

Amy nodded slowly, "o-only one."

"Yes!" I cheered out loud, I drug the two over to the surprisingly short line.

When we were seated, Amy looked at me scared.

"I-I think I want to-"

The noise of the coaster beginning to move interrupted her.

"You'll be fine," I offered her my hand. "Need daddy's hand?" I asked jokingly. It kind of surprised me how quick she grabbed my offering hand.

Soon enough, we were at the top of the hill. When the coast paused.

Amy looked around frantically.

There was a click and we were flying down the track.

Amy screamed and squeezed my hand tightly.

I rose my arms and Amy followed, letting go of my hand. I looked to see she had a smile on her face, I smiled softly and looked back ahead as we went down another hill.

When we were done, Amy was shaking slightly.

"What did you think?" Kelly asked as we left the ride.

"I wanna do that again!" Amy yelled smiling.

"Well we have a long day ahead of us so we can ride all different ones." I explained looking up at a Ferris wheel.

Kelly's eyes followed mine, "lets ride that."

After we all got in to the sphere shaped bowl, we reached the top and looked around at all of the rides.

"Is that a water park!" Amy asked getting excited.

Kelly nodded, "we can go there too."

"But I didn't bring a suit..."

"We can buy you another!" Kelly said as if it was nothing.

So as hours past, we left for the water park.

We all headed to a gift shop to buy swim wear. Then we got changed and headed for the lazy river.

I grabbed an inner tube and laid down, flowing slowly with the currents as I recalled earlier.

This day had been so fun, and for once, no one surrounded us for autographs or pictures.

"So dad..." Amy started as she floated between Kelly and I. "Once you two start dating, are we going to start doing more fun stuff like this?"

I fell off my tube and Kelly went red as a beat. "What are you talking about?"

She looked at me stupidly, "I see the way you guys look at each other. Just confess your love already and make out like Lucas and I."

Kelly played with her fingers, "w-well..."

I shrugged, "fine. I confess my love to you."

Her face turned a darker shade of red and my heart was racing. I couldn't believe I was doing this.

"I-I love you too."

My eyes widened and I stared at her in disbelief. "Really?"

Amy smiled, "great, you're together. Now just wait till I leave and you can kiss. Watching older people kiss is distasteful in a teenagers eyes."

I laughed as we continued our way though the river.

Amy looked at Kelly, "and thanks for taking me here. I feel much better."

Kelly smiled, "no problem."

I smiled and looked at the two of them, I had the only two people by my side that I need.

Amy, a girl who used to argue with me non stop, now a caring daughter.

And Kelly, a girl I had fallen for since she came to the industry.

I am finally happy, taking care of my family is now my new responsibility.
