Chapter 7 - Michael’s POV



2 weeks later... it’s Thanksgiving break, finally...

I’m at my apartment to pack my stuff since we would go home until our fall break over, so we would have 4 weeks break, we definitely need that.

I hear my front door is knocked on as I walk out of my bedroom and I walk toward my front door as I open my front door and I see Dylan and Adam walk in with two suitcases.

“Hey dude.” Dylan smiles big as he walks toward my family room and he asks in a curious voice, “So... are Anastasia, Harper, Maddison, and Leah coming with us?”

I nodded as I walk toward my family room and I say, “Yeah, plus Leah’s boyfriend is coming too.” I shrug as I sigh deeply and I say, “We would go to the airport at 5:30pm because our flight will fly at 6:30pm.”

Adam nodded as he smiles.


At 5:30pm... we picked the girls up and we arrived at the airport and we already went through the bullshit with security.

I sigh deeply as I’m sitting on the chair next to Anastasia since Harper is talking to Adam, Maddison is talking to Dylan, and Leah is talking to Tyler and I see Anastasia using her phone to look at some pictures for Pinterest because she loves to add these pictures for her books.

“What?” Anastasia looks up at me from her phone as she giggles softly and she says, “You have been staring at me.”

“Sorry, Ana.” I chuckle softly and I ask in a curious voice, “Are your family upset with you about not being there at your parents’ house?”

“No, they know I need a break from visiting my family all the time.” Anastasia shrugs as she sighs deeply and she says, “They want to meet you.”

“Really?” I raise my eyebrows in confusion as I see Anastasia nodded and I ask in a curious voice, “Why?”

“Because they think I’m dating you.” Anastasia giggles softly and she says, “I told them that I know you for a while.”

I nodded as I smile softly, I think I have a feeling for Anastasia for a while... I have no idea why.

Anastasia and I have been hanging out a lot lately and got to know each other and we talked a lot and laughed a lot, we went out to eat, movies, mall, and on road trips sometimes.

But Anastasia got out of her abusive relationship but she would want to take it slow with me because she gets really afraid about having a new relationship with someone or me.

“So since you would meet my family today, I’ll meet your family soon.” I smile softly as I see Anastasia smiles back at me and I ask in a curious voice, “What is their name?”

“My mom is Susan, my dad is John, I have two sisters are Violet and Sophia and my brother is Derek.” Anastasia shrugs and she says, “They do still live in VA.”

“Really? Do they have their own family?” I raise my eyebrows in confusion because I’m very curious about her family.

“Yeah... my brother have his husband since he’s a gay, they have 2 kids because they adopted them.” Anastasia smiles big and she says, “My sister Sophia has a husband who she loves her so much but 2 kids. My other sister Violet has been single because she didn’t want to have other relationships.” Anastasia looks at me and she asks in a curious voice, “Do your family know about me or my life?”

I shake my head and I say, “Nope... they don’t know about it... because I don’t want you to be pissed off at me.”

Anastasia smiles small and she says, “Thank you.” Anastasia puts her head on my shoulder and she sighs deeply.

“You ok?”

“Yeah, I’m just sleepy.”

“You can take a nap.” I smile softly.

“Okay.”


3 hours later... my friends and I arrived in DC, and we are at my parents’ house, we are in my parents’ family room.

Mia smiles softly and she asks in a curious voice, “How’s college life for you guys?”

“Really good mom.” I smile softly as I see Anastasia smiles softly at me and I see my dad looks at me with a confused look and I ask in a curious voice, “What?”

“Ahem, how about you, your friends can come with me while the girls can cook foods?” Lincoln smiles softly.

“Umm...” I hesitate as I look at Anastasia and I see Anastasia and her friends nodded as I turn around to my dad and I say, “Sure.”

“Okay... come on!”


A few days later... I’m laying down on my own bed as I see Anastasia walks into my bedroom and I see Anastasia wearing her comfortable shirt and black leggings, she smiles softly.

“Hey Ana.” I sit up from my bed and I ask in a curious voice, “What’s wrong?”

Anastasia shrugs, she walks toward me and she sits down on my bed and she asks in a curious voice, “Ummm... who will be coming over here for Thanksgiving dinner?”

“My grandparents, aunts, uncles, and their own kids.” I see Anastasia nodded and I ask in a curious voice, “Why?”

“I’m just wondering... I don’t meet your family.” Anastasia shrugs as she sees I nodded and she asks in a curious voice, “Are you close to your family?”

“Very... I mean... they know about me and my ex-girlfriend, they saw everything that we went through so much.” I shrug as I sigh deeply and I say, “I mean... we went through so much in the past...” I see Anastasia nodded in understanding.

“Well... I understand but I wouldn’t interrupt you and your family members.” Anastasia smiles weakly as she gets up from my bed.

“Ana---”

Anastasia interrupts me as she shakes her head and she says, “No, it’s okay... I mean... we would have fun tonight since they would come over.” Anastasia smiles weakly as she walks away from me.

I sigh deeply as I see Anastasia walks out of my bedroom and I shake my head.


Later that night... my family are here, finally... so we can eat something for dinner... I notice Anastasia wears her black tank top with her different color light jacket, black legging and she has a brown boot, she looks so beautiful.

I smile small as I see Anastasia talks to my mom, my mom loves her so much. She always asking Anastasia all the time.

Happy Thanksgiving...
