The real reason why cami's mom is back is revealed. Gerard and Cami share a moment
“Why didn’t you tell me Julia?” she heard her dad say in an angry tone. “You didn’t need to threaten me with suing and shit. I would have let her go with you.” Cami scrunched her nose up in confusion.
“I didn’t want you thinking I was weak Kyan.” She heard her mother say.
“Why would I think you were weak? You’re sick it’s two different things” Kyan said angrily.
“I thought if I told you, you wouldn’t let her come back with me” Julia said her voice cracking as she began to cry softly.
“You have cancer Julia it’s something you shouldn’t hide” Kyan said. Cami’s jaw dropped softly, she felt her bottom lip tremble. She bit down on it gently to stop it from trembling as she squeezed her eyes shut feeling the tears roll slowly down her cheeks. She wiped her eyes quickly and knocked on the door of her dad’s room. She heard them stop talking and footsteps as someone came to answer the door. She watched as the door opened a crack and her dad looked around.
“Uh now’s not exactly a good time sweetheart. I’m in a meeting” Kyan said clearly lying as his eyes darted around trying to look anywhere but Cami. Cami sighed resignedly.
“Okay I’ll come back later” Cami said turning to walk away. She went to leave then stopped. “Dad if you see mom, can you tell her I’d like to give New York another chance” she said choking slightly on her tears. Kyan nodded at Cami.
“Are you sure?” he said looking at her eyes full of concern. Cami just nodded silently. “Okay I’ll tell her” Kyan said quietly closing the door. Cami walked back to her room struggling not to cry. She opened the door with her key car and collapsed onto her bed crying hard into her pillow. Cami lay like that for what seemed like hours til her sidekick rang. Cami sat up sniffling still and answered her phone.
“Sweetie why are you crying?” said a familiar voice.
Cami laughed thru her tears as she heard one of her best friends in the whole world speak.
“Please don’t tell me it’s over that wanker Ollie” her friend Adam said as he continued to speak. Cami could only imagine the expression on his face right now.
“No it’s not it’s my mom” Cami said feeling a fresh wave of tears fall onto her cheeks. She sniffled a little. “What’s the bitch done now?” she heard another familiar voice yell in the background. Cami laughed as she heard her other best friend Jake. She heard his footsteps in the back ground and heard a yelp as Adam was tackled by Jake for the phone. She heard them scuffle around for a few seconds til she heard Adam yell “Jake why is it you always put up a tent when that happens?” Adam laughingly said. Cami stopped crying and began to laugh hard. She could only imagine how red Jake’s face would be now; she heard the door slam and Adam giggle.
“He’s just mad I didn’t give him the phone. He was upset with me this morning. He slept over last night and when he woke up I’d gone out to get Starbucks. He wasn’t happy that I’d left” Adam said with a light chuckle.
“He likes you it’s so obvious” Cami said a grin now plastered on her tear stained face. She heard Adam sigh softly. “If you like him so much why don’t you tell him?” Cami said in exasperation.
“Because!” Adam squealed. “What if he doesn’t like me? I couldn’t handle that kind of rejection” he said dramatically making Cami laugh. She heard the door open in the back ground and a dog bark.
“Awww is Maggie there?” Cami said smiling.
“Uh huh, hey..ow that hurt” Adam said.
“What’s he doing now?” Cami said confused.
“He’s poking..ow.. me and ..ow pouting” Adam said. “I think he wants to take Maggie for a walk.” Cami nodded along listening.
“I’ll let you go then” Cami said chuckling. “I’ll talk to you later” she said. They said their goodbye’s and hung up. Cami lay back down on her bed her hands behind her head staring at the ceiling. Her mind wandered back to what her mom and dad had been talking about. She couldn’t believe her mom had cancer, she didn’t know how to react. She felt kind of numb inside now that she knew the real reason behind her mom being back. She slowly sat up grabbing the pack of cigarettes off her dresser and pulling one out lighting it quickly and taking a long drag. She paced around her room until there was a gentle knock on the door from the adjoining room. Cami walked over opening it letting Gerard walk in. She stubbed out her cigarette in the ash tray and sat on the edge of her bed with Gerard.
“You feeling any better?” Gerard said quietly with concern. “Head isn’t hurting?” Cami shook her head quietly. She stared at her feet nervous to say anything to Gerard. She slowly lifted her head and looked at him.
“Thanks again for this morning Gee it meant a lot” Cami said quietly. She watched Gerard stare at his shoes nodding shyly.
“I was really worried about you last night. Not knowing where you were was awful. I was scared for you” he said looking at her. It was then at that point that something snapped inside both of them. Cami threw her arms around Gerard’s neck. Their lips collided surprisingly softly considering Cami had just thrown herself at Gerard. She at first caught him off guard, but he quickly eased into it. Cami gently sucked on his bottom lip, she felt Gerard’s tongue press softly against her lips. She slipped her tongue against his as they battled for dominance. Gerard lay Cami gently down on the bed running his hands up her shirt as they continued to make out. Cami tugged at the hem of his shirt, Gerard grinned as he let her lift it over his head. Her hands travelled up Gerard’s pale skin, marvelling at all the contours of it. Cami felt Gerard’s hand wander down to her jeans, she allowed him to undo them and tug them off slowly. She grinned as he lifted her shirt and threw it on the floor. Gerard gazed down at her body.
“Are you sure you want to do this?” he said a questioning look in his eyes, as he marvelled at her body.
“I’m sure” Cami said nodding.
And so it began....
