Part 1 of Prologue(Sam POV):
I'm exhausted! I decided to sleep for a little while. I close my eyes, and slowly begin to drift off to sleep . . . . "Mommy!", I hear a shout from the backseat of the minivan. I roll my eyes. I have not gotten a break from my kids this whole entire roadtrip. "What?", I ask my 4-year-old daughter, Maybelle. "Jathan keeps kicking my seat." Jathan, did I not tell you to leave your little sister alone?", I ask my son. "Yes", he replies. "Well why won't you stop, I'm trying to sleep." "I'm bored,there's nothing on the TV, and my Pearpod died.",he answers. "Well go to sleep, your mom and sisters are trying to sleep.",I hear Freddie say. I jumped, almost forgetting he was there. After that, it quieted down. After Carly left back when we were seniors in 2012, Freddie and I has graduated Ridgeway together, and we both went to college together at Seattle Art Institute. I became a professional chef, and had opened a restaurant with a friend from highschool, Wendy.
Chapter 7: A/N:
Hey guys! Sorry for the late update, I've been trying so hard to find time to update and I finally could. Do you guys think Melanie's family should stay with them at the lake house or stay where they're already staying? Do you know what Sam's secret is and are you excited to find out? Please review! I consider all of your suggestions before writing! Happy 3-day-weekend everyone! Hope you all stay safe and enjoy it! Thanks for sticking with me guys,
Chapter 7: (Part 4):
I turn around to see my clone, my identical twin sister, Melanie and her husband Kyle, with their twin daughters; Nicole and Chloe. I try to turn back around quick enough for her not to see me, but it?s too late. ?Sam? Is that you??, she asks running towards me. I sigh, and scrunch my face up in annoyance, sinking down into my chair as if THAT would make her go away. She reaches my chair and as soon as she looks at me again, she instantly recognizes my face. ?It IS you!!!!?, she exclaims choking me in one of her way too tight hugs. ?Mel, what are you doing here??, I ask my way too eager sister after prying her off of me. ?Kyle and I always take the kids here for the summer.?, Melanie states matter-of-factly as if this is something I should have known. Well I guess I should have, but I didn?t. The only time we see Mel?s family is when we all get together with my mom and Freddie?s mom for Thanksgiving and Christmas. ?Hey Melanie?, Carly and Sasha exclaim, rushing to hug her. Mel graciously accepted their hugs and turned to all three of us.?So what are you guys doing here??, she asks us. ?The Benson?s, the Gibson?s, and us all decided to go on vacation together up at the lake for this week.?, Sasha replies. ?Oh.?, Melanie replies feeling left out. ?We?re so glad you and Kyle and the kids are here though.?, Carly replies. ?Thanks!?, Melanie peppily replies. ?Yeah! You guys should stay with us at the lake house Socko?s cousin, Flow?s renting us.?, Sasha exclaims excitedly. ?We would love that! We?re totally in!?, Melanie says. Sasha gives Melanie the address and she goes off to tell her husband and my nieces. ?Why? Why would you ask them to come??, I say sighing and slumping back down. ?She?s your sister!?, Sasha says. ?Yeah, I know and I love her . . . . But a person can only take so much of Melanie.?, I sigh again, shutting my eyes tightly. I know for sure now that this week is going to be even longer. But all I?m going to think about is spending this week with Freddie and our kids and the special surprise I?m super excited about.
~End of Chapter 7~.
Chapter 7: (Part 3):
Still Freddie's POV:
We all agree. ?Come on kids, lets all go get ready.?, Sam says grabbing Maybelle?s hand and heading off with all the others. Sasha and Carly go with Sam and the rest of us get ready. A few minutes later, they emerge from the bedroom with all 8 kids dressed in their swimsuits. ?You guys ready??, I ask, as Maybelle runs up to me and jumps into my arms. ?Yeah, lets go!?, Sam says grabbing my arm. We all get in our cars and drive to the nearest water park.
. . . . . . . .
When we get there, Spencer, Gibby, and I all take the kids over to the slides, and the girls all head over to the beach chairs. ?Daddy this line is taking forever!?, Jathan complains about 5 minutes later. ?Yeah and we haven?t even moved Freddie!?, Spencer says all whiny. ?Guys just wait your turn. We?ll be up there soon,?, I say to my irritated son and whiny Spencer.
. . . . . . . .
?Ah! Relaxation at last!?, Sasha exhales. ?Yup and I feel refreshed already!?, I say smiling. Carly says nothing. ?Your kids are so cute!?, Sasha says to me. ?I can?t believe how fast they?ve grown up! I?ve known them since before they were even born!?, she adds. ?I haven?t.?, Carly says. I ignore Carly. ?Thanks.?, I reply to Sasha. ?And what about Libby? I mean she?s already starting middle school next year.?, I say. ?Yeah, yeah, yeah. They?re all huge. What are you guys turning into Spencer??, Carly says cold-heartedly. Just as we?re about to respond, I hear an all too familiar, annoying, chirpy voice behind me.
Chapter 7: (Part 2)
Still Freddie's POV:
He leaves the room with tears in his eyes. I laugh at how much Libby and Sasha are right about him crying all the time and successfully dodge pillows thrown by Maybelle and Kassidy. I then throw one at Carly, but miss again. ?Come on man, man it up. We?re loosing! Actually hit someone!?, Gibby yells. I grab a pillow off of the floor and hurl it at the back of Gibby?s head. ?Hey I meant at the girls!?, he yells rubbing the back of his head. The girls continue to pelt us with the pillows. The guys eventually call it quits, knowing we can?t win and all of us head out to breakfast.
. . . . . . . .
?All right guys, so what do you all wanna do today??, Sasha asks all the kids after we finish breakfast. ?You know what we should do. . . .?, Gibby says, nodding. We all wait a moment for him to respond. ?What?!?, Sam yells at him. ?We should all go to a water park like we used to do when we were their ages.?, Gibby finally says. ?Yeah! That?s a great idea!?, Spencer says.
Hey guys sorry about everything, my computer's not been working right so I have to get it and my laptop fixed. I would update on my phone if I could but I can't. Hopefully I'll update soon.
Hey guys, so how have you all been? My teachers piled me up with homework + make up work that I just finally finished today I'm so sorry about updating the story. I have my brother's Holiday show to go to tomorrow night, so I probably won't be able to update til at least Wednesday or Thursday. Most likely Friday though.
R.I.P. Grandma, I love you forever. <3
Have a great week, with lots of love,
A/N Part 2 for Chapter 6:
You'll also get to know the kids better! And, you might even get to find out what Sam's secret is, or maybe not. I'll be the one who decides that! So stay tuned for the next part of iAll Grown Up! Yay! I feel like a TV announcer! Lol. Thanks for reading guys. Happy 11/12/13!
Chapter 6, Part 10: (Sam's POV):
I can feel Freddie grinning against me. "And I know that this week will bring very special memories.", I add, hinting something. "Yeah. I bet it will.", he says, bending down to kiss my forehead. 'If only he knew.', I thought, smiling.
~END OF CHAPTER 6~
Hey guys! Yay! Thank you 4 day weekend for finally, allowing me to update this! It took me about an hour to write this on Sunday and I figure out I could write it much faster by writing it in my iPod than writing it down first when I might forget to add something. Can you believe Carly? I'm starting to get annoyed by her. What do you guys think is up with Sam? She's hiding something, and I'm the ONLY one who knows what it is. Mu ha ha! (terrible evil laugh attempt). My favorite part had to be the cute ending because I love Seddie so much! Much more drama in the next chapter! More Carly drama and more Spencer and Gibby craziness! And of course, definitely more Seddie!
Chapter 6, Part 9: (Sam's POV):
After Sasha, Carly, and I all get the kids into bed, we all go to bed as well. I quickly take a shower, then climb into bed next to Freddie. "I'm so tired!", I moan. "Me too babe. We were driving like all day yesterday and like half of today.", he reminds me. I nod. "Man I can't believe Carly. I mean I get it's bad what we did, but it's even worse that she did the same exact thing by not telling us about her and Gibby then getting mad at us!", I fume. "I know, but you know her. Don't worry about it baby. She'll come around.", Freddie says. "Yeah I guess.", I shrug. I yawn. "You should really get some sleep sweetie. You're really tired.", Freddie says. He shuts off the bedside lamp and I curl up against his side, laying my head on his shoulder. "Thanks baby. For everything. I know how much you want us to enjoy this week. And even if it doesn't go so well, I'll be happy because I got to spend it with my best friend, regardless of what Carly causes.",
Chapter 6, Part 8: (Sam POV):
They must've definitely gotten their brains from the Shay's side of the family. "We are too talking, you just don't see it.", she lies. She makes a point by sitting across from us at dinner.I decide to try to show her that I'm not mad at her. "Hey Carls, I love your outfit.", I say smiling at her. This is always how I got her to talk to me whenever we were fighting back when we were teens. "Thanks.", she simply says with a smirk and then gets back to eating. I roll my eyes.
Correction: Some things DO change! I get back to the conversation everyone else is in, including the kids. We all finish dinner, then head back to the camp.
. . . . . . . .
"All right guys, bed time! Go brush your teeth and get to bed.", I instruct the kids. Growing up, I had always HATED to be told to do ANYTHING! But, I know that kids need rules and boundaries to be set. Uh! Look at me! I sound like Dr. Phyllis!
Chapter 6, Part 7: (Sam's POV):
"It was NOT a paper cut! FYI it hurt VERY, VERY bad!", Spencer yells. "You're such a baby, look at you! You're starting to cry now!", Sasha jokes. "This has been so weird, yet so amusing. Hey why don't we talk about something else for the next 2 hours?", Freddie asks the others, tightening his grip on me. Just then, Liberty heads out of the room the kids are all sharing. "Daddy, why are you crying now?", she asks grabbing a bottle of water. "I'm not crying!!!!!!!!", he yells starting to cry. "Yeah lets talk about something else.", Gibby says. We all agree with him.
. . . . . . . .
"Mommy? Why aren't you talking to Aunt Sam and Uncle Freddie?", Kevin asks Carly. "What?! Who says I'm not?", she says getting all offended. "No one. You just were so excited to see them this morning and now you won't even go near them.", inquires Kassidy. Smart kids. I don't see how they are related to a Gibby though.
Chapter 6, Part 6: (Sam's POV):
Carly just glares at us. "Yeah, I'm so happy you kids all turned out to be so successful. It really makes my heart tingle and I just feel so special knowing that I knew you when, and that I practically raised you from little children.", Spencer says, his voice cracking,beginning to get all emotional and starting to cry. "Oh stop crying Spencer. I swear this guy gets emotional all the time. I asked Liberty to get the mail for me the other day and he started crying because 'she's getting so big'. I wanna see who he's gonna be when she grows up and moves out of the apartment.", Sasha says. "In all fairness, I just happened to cut my finger on one of my sculptures I had been working on just 2 hours before that.", Spencer snaps back. Sasha rolls her eyes. We all laugh, except Carly. "See Spencer her point is that you're so emotional, that you cry for 2 hours just for giving yourself a paper cut.",I say laughing.
Chapter 6, Part 5: (Sam's POV):
why don't we just hang here for a couple of hours and then we can all go out to dinner?", I say. "Sure, good idea.", Spencer says. "So how's work Sam?", Gibby asks. "It's been good, kinda stressful lately though.", I reply. "Cool, I watch your show every day. You sure do know how to make a Gibby tick tock with with your food recipes if you know what I mean.", Gibby replies. "Yeah some things never change.", I reply. "Gibby no one understands you.", Spencer says all irritated like. Gibby just shrugs. We all know he's used to it. "So how about you Freddie, how's work?", Gibby asks. "It's great. I just finished filming the new movie in the 'Moonlight Twiblood' series. And, after vacation, I'm starting on this new horror movie." "We're so proud of our Emmy winner here.", I said smiling, gently jabbing him in his chest. He grins. "I'm not the only one who's won Emmy's. Your show has too sweetie.", he says wrapping an arm around my waist.
Chapter 6, Part 4: (Freddie POV):
That's one thing that changed when we had kids, she somehow learned to tolerate people better. And I know what you're thinking right now. 'Sam, tolerating people? Yeah right.' Well this is actually true. I could sense it becoming harder for her as she's trying to focus on what Sasha is suggesting the fun activities that we can all do this week, so I interject. "That sounds great Sasha. Why don't we all go pick our rooms then we can let the kids decide what to do today?" We all go pick our rooms.
. . . . . . . .
We all head back to the kitchen. "So, what are we all gonna do today?", Spencer asks all the adults. "I don't know, our vacation doesn't officially start until tomorrow. Today we were just supposed to all meet, drive up here, catch up with each other, and maybe get all unpacked.", Sasha says. "Yeah I mean the kids all seem pretty settled already and they're all seeming to be getting along real well,
Chapter 6, Part 3: (Freddie POV):
. . . . . . . .
"I call the room with the water bed!", yells Jathan. "No me!", says Maybelle. "I should get the room! I'm the oldest!", yells Liberty. "Liberty come on. You guys don't have to fight over the room. You'll all have much more fun sharing it! Now go have fun you crazy kids! Go check out the rest of the house!", says Spencer. "Yay!!", all of the kids yell running off. "Be careful!", Sam says showing her motherly protection. As the kids run off to the other parts of the house, an awkward silence fills the room. "So . . . . . . . . ", Sasha says trying to enlighten the mood of the room. "Why don't we all go pick our rooms and then we can all go figure out what we can do for fun this week.", Sasha says while trying to ignore the glare that Carly was currently giving Sam. I know that Sam knew what Carly was doing, but she was ignoring her.
Chapter 6, Part 2: (Freddie POV):
"You sure you guys don't mind Carly seeing you with us? She made it pretty clear that she basically hate us.", I add. "Nah Freddo. I know my baby sister. She's just letting off some steam. She doesn't really hate you. Not after all those years of friendship. Just give her time.", Spencer says. "Okay I'm fine with that, I just don't want to ruin this week for Sam. She's been really stressed out with work lately and I just wanted her to get a break from it all.", I say. Just then, Sam walks by carrying Maybelle in her arms. "Come on guys! Mama's hungry!", she yells at us, playfully slapping Spencer on the back. "But baby you just ate.", I protested to my wife. She rolls her eyes. "Yeah point out the obvious.", she says. "All right let's go inside.", I say grabbing all of the bags.
