Nick's POV

    When Lanie finally agreed to come back to Texas with me, I sent her into her bedroom to pack up her things while I called home. The phone rang twice before Kylie answered,

    “Hello?”

    “Kylie? Is that you?”

    “Yeah, Nick, it's me. Where are you? Mom and Dad are worried sick.”

    “Umm.. I'm in New York.”

    “New York? Why?”

    “Because I overheard Kevin on the phone with Danielle and put two and two together. Long story short, I found her, Kylie.”

    “Found her? Who, Nick? Who'd you find?”

    “Lanie. I found Lanie. She finally agreed to come home with me.”

    “Really? She did? But it's only been 6 months. Is she still pregnant? Oops.”

    “Are you telling me that you knew all along? But you never told anyone. You know how distraught Joe's been since she left.”

    “I know, Nick, but I couldn't tell him or anyone. She made me promise not to. And I knew if anyone was going to say anything about it, it had to be her.”

    “Alright, I understand why but now that she's agreed to come back with me, you need to help me get Joe to the airport when we fly into Texas.”

    “Ok, I'll think of some way to get him to the airport. What day are you flying in?”

    “Probably tomorrow or the day after. I'll call you when we're getting on the plane.”

 

Narrator's POV

    Alayna walked out of her bedroom, all of her things now packed up in 3 suitcases and 4 duffel bags. Nick had called and gotten two airline tickets for tomorrow at 3 pm from New York to Dallas. Meanwhile, after he called Kylie again the next day, she set about convincing her brother to go to the airport with her. Only she didn't tell him he was going to the airport.
