It's been a week since Cameron asked me to be his girlfriend and it's been so peaceful, never in my have I been so at peace with life. Today is another Monday and it doesn't feel like that, for the first time Monday doesn't seem dreadful. Quickly took a bottle of water and went for a quick jog, it's been so long since I went for a jog.

I entered my house and i saw my mum in the kitchen making breakfast. It's another Monday she's not supposed to be home

"Good morning mum, I'm surprised to see you at home. What's up?"

"Hey baby, I thought you were still asleep. Sit down, I need to talk"

"Oookayyy, did something happen?"

"No baby, your dad and I were discussing the other day and we decided to take a break from work, so we could be there for you and killian. I know it might be a little late for it, but it's better late than never. Seeing you have your panic attacks just made me realise that if we were around then, it wouldn't have even happened to begin with And I am so sorry. I love you so much baby." She says as she squeeze my hands on the kitchen counter and I couldn't help the tears that came flowing. I went around to give her a tight hug.

"Mum, you don't need to beat your self up for anything. I love you too mum." I don't know how long we stayed like that but it was perfect. I never really like the fact that she was always gone but I also couldn't complain because if they don't do it, no one would.

"I guess your mum already told you about our decision?" My dad comes down from his room and behind him is killian smiling like a baby I'm sure he's also happy with their decision.

"Hey, we're late for school! Are you going or not?" Killian reminds me. I totally forgot today is a Monday. Oh God

"Shit, go on ahead. I'll drive myself. Plus I just have an elective this morning. My major is my 12pm so i would miss my first period then." I explain "say hi to Camilla for me bye"

I rushed upstairs, looked for something very casual to put on today, cause I barely have time for anything, put my hair into tight ponytail so it'll bring out the shape of my head, put a little mascara and highlight on my cheek bone. I came out of my house in one hour, in a vintage shirt and jeans.

I pull up in the school's parking lot and it was already 12 pm. "Right on time, k" I should be early more often. It feels good.

I was so eager to see Cameron today, I didn't receive a text message and he hasn't replied mine. On entering the school, I had to head straight to my class which was history. Ugh this man needed to stop giving notes like he can't fucking read. And then we end up getting the text book and meet strange things. After a long one hour thirty minutes, the class finally ends and I can leave. Finally

"Hey k, did you hear from Cameron, he didn't attend any class today and he wouldn't do that. This is our last year of college. I doubt if he would want to fuck it up. Killian comes up to me after his class.

"Really I was kinda waiting for him, no he didn't call me and he hasn't replied my texts. I'm worried."

"Go on. Check on him. I'll drive Camilla home, I'll be home at night tho."

"Ewwww, don't paint stuffs in my mind. Jeez! I'll let you know if anything happens"

I tell him

"Yeah sure. Take care k."

I park my car in our drive way and cross the street. I really hope he's okay though, how didn't I know something was up when I didn't get a text back. I press the doorbell twice and his dad opens the door, he looks sad, what's going on?

"Good afternoon Mr Anderson, I'm a friend of Cameron and I live across the street. I noticed he was absent from school and I wanted to check up on him, is he home?" I think that should do.

"You must be Kehlani Williams. Nice to finally meet you. Come on in. Cameron is upstairs, Caleb would take you to him."

I step in the house and take a good look at it. It looks warm. Definitely like they just moved in, but comfortable, a boy about 3 years younger than Cameron, i think, waves at me a directs me to his room.

"He's been in there since morning. No one could get him out and he has refused to open the door for any one" he says he also looks sad too. What's happening in this family.

"Cam, it's Lani. Please open the door." I hear shuffling then footsteps, then the door opens and a sad face is revealed. Eyes puffy from crying, rough hair, bare chest. How can someone look so sad and perfect and hot too. I was almost drooling at his chest. Damn, these things should be illegal!

I rush in to give him a tight hug.

"Heyy, oh my God baby, how long have you been in crying in here. What's wrong?"

"I'm so happy you're here Lani. You have no idea how much i needed this hug." He says as he takes a deep breath.

"I couldn't just ignore that you didn't come to school today. Do you want to talk about it?" He nods as he takes me to his bed to sit down.

"Today is my mum's deathiversary. I don't know if you know what that means but it's kinda like a name we give each month that passes after my mum died. It's six months already. And every month feels like she just died. It's so hard living without her. You know? She taught me everything I live by." I couldn't help but feel bad for him. It's would have been so hectic for him and his brother.

"It's okay Cameron, I'm sure she's watching over you. It'll be fine."

"I feel better, I have you and you're here me to calm me down".

I place his head on my chest as we lay down and I don't know how long we were in that position until I hear him snore lightly and shortly after I doze off too.

I just put down whatever came to my finger tips.
