"Autumn, how could you do such a thing!?" Nick said the moment he walked back into
his room.

"I told you Nick, I was young and stupid. I'm sorry. I wouldn't do it if it were to happen
today. I wish I could take it all back."

"It's not just that either! You lied to me when you told me the story of what happened
too! Lyle told me the square truth!"

"Dont believe that mother-fucking bastard. You cant trust him Nick! Don't even talk to

"TRUST? You're talking to me about trust!?! You never told me about this shit and now
you're worried about trust? I thought I knew you Autumn. I guess I had no idea." She just sat
and stared at him, not knowing what to say. "I think we need some time apart, I need to get my
head straight, and from what I can tell, you do too. Oh, and this is for you." He took the
envelope out of his pocket and tossed it at her. He turned around and walked out of his room.
He walked down the hallway and saw Brian's door open. All the guys were sitting around the
table. They all saw Nick and didn't know what to do. Finally, after a few moments had passed,
Brian stood up, walked over to Nick, and gave him a big hug.

"Lyle told us, I'm sorry man, I really am." Nick started crying.


Autumn heard a knock on the door. She stood up to answer it. She looked through the
peephole. It was Lyle. She slowly opened it. "What do you want? Haven't you ruined my life
enough already?"

"Don't get me started on that Margret. You never ruined my life?"

"What do you want?"

"Well, since my package didnt seem to help," Lyle saw the pictures scattered across the
small endtable, "I thought this would." He turned his attention to the hall. "Come here,
sweetheart." He motioned to come. He streched out his hand and a little one grabbed it.
"Danica, this is your mother, Autumn."

Autumn swallowed hard. Why hadn't she figured all this would catch up to her. The
small girl walked in front of the doorway. She was an average 4 year old in height and stature,
but with all of Autumn's features. She was definately her mother's daughter. "Hi Danica." She
bent down to Danica's level. Danica just grabbed onto her father tighter.

"Dont be afraid Danica, say hi."

"Hi," she softly spoke.

"Well aren't you the most beautiful thing in the world! There hasn't been a day that I
haven't thought of you.....or you," she said, rising back to Lyle. "Come in." The 2 walked inside.

Lyle sat on the bed and Danica sat on his lap. "I've missed you guys. You don't even

"Then why did you never try to get in touch with us. How hard can it be to dial 0?"

"All this stuff has happened so fast to me lately...."

"It's been four years!"

"All those years I struggled except this one, and this one, I just haven't had the time!"

"We're not important enough for you to make time?"

"That's not it! My life has just been chaos and I don't know how to handle it okay?"

"Sometimes you need to learn how." Lyle and Autumn both watched Danica fall asleep
on Lyle's chest. He picked her up and layed her on the bed. "Autumn, life hasn't been hard for
just you, okay? You've got everything now, I still have nothing, except Danica."

"I did have everything. Now I've probably lost Nick. Now I have nothing."

"You still have your career, that's something."

"Now once word gets around about this, I'll lose half my fanbase too. If I haven't, I will
lose everything, even you again."

"What are you talking about? You left me, I lost you, not the other way.''

"I made myself loose you. I still think about you Lyle. I still have feelings for you. I think
that's why I haven't been able to be able to completly settle down with Nick. Please tell me you
think about me too."

"I do. Everytime I look at Danica, I think how her mother abandoned her. I think how her
mother abandoned me. I think how much I hate that bitch."

"You don't have feelings for me still?"

"I don't know. Right now I hate you too much to feel any love."

"I wanted to call, write, anything. I was just afraid I'd loose what I had gained."

"How would you loose it? It's not like we would take you out of school or anything!"

"I've just miss you, Lyle, so much." She got up off her chair and kissed him. As she did
this, the door knob turned and Nick walked in. "Nick! Its not what you think!" He shook his
head, turned, and slammed the door behind him.
