Chapter Two Part Twelve
A sigh of
relief. Negative. Not pregnant. I must just be catching a cold
from something, maybe it's allergies. After that experience I
decided I should actually try and sleep, so I turned off the TV
and bundled up under my covers and dozed off.
I felt the bed move, like someone had just sat down. I opened my
eyes to see Jax leaning in to kiss me.
"Jax, I'm up," I said before he
could kiss me.
"Oh, well that was easy," he said
with a little confusion.
"I felt you sit down," I said with a
"Oh, okay. So get ready, it's 2 and
we should leave in about 10-15 minutes."
"Okay. Is Dad here, or is he meeting us
"Meeting us. Now go get ready!"
I stood in front of my closet blankly for a minutes before I saw
exactly what I wanted to wear. A flowy floral tank, light colored
jeans, and gladiator gold sandals. Since it was supposed to be a
little bit breezier than normal, I also grabbed a grey half
sweater incase I get cold. After I got dressed I went to the
bathroom to quickly brush my hair and my teeth.
"Babe, come on! We have to leave like 5
minutes ago," Jax yelled into the bathroom.
"Alright, let's go."
We didn't race to Jax's car like we normally do, I still
wasn't feeling well. Somehow we got the the appointment five
minutes before we needed to be there. Dad wasn't here yet.
Someone else was in Lalane's office when we got to her door,
so we sat outside of her door on a bench. We could hear Lalane
and whoever's conversation from inside her office.
"--Bills and everything go to me,
correct?" the man was saying.
"That's right. They can pay just the house, or
the utilities. Whatever you're most comfortable
with," that was Lalane.
"Let's have them paying the
utilities, and if they become backed up with paying, you can just
take it from my card," the man said.
"That can be arranged," Lalane told
I had to stop listening, I was starting to get a headache so I
rested my head on Jax's shoulder. I was out for about five
minutes before Jax had to wake me up so we could talk to
"Illy, wake up," Jax said moving
"Who was she in there with? It wasn't
Dad was it?" I said looking around. My dad still wasn't
"Uhh... It was just-- an older
I stood up and Jax followed me into Lalane's office.
"Heyy Jaxson and Illiana. All I need you
two to do is sign at the bottom of these two papers where the
'X's are, then you can start moving in," Lalane told
I quickly sprawled my name out on the papers eager to go shopping
for new things. Jax read over the papers before signing.
"Shouldn't there be more
papers?" I asked.
"Nope, everything has already been taken
care of," Lalane responded.
"Oh. Alright," I said giving Jax a
puzzled look. He just smiled.
"Well, everything is situated, so you two
can start moving in. Here are two sets of keys, and if you need
anything don't hesitate to give me a call," Lalane said
while holding out her hand.
We took the keys and then headed to Wal*Mart, but Wal*Mart
wasn't where Jax and I ended up.
