Chapter 5.11


“But I don’t want to leave,” I whined into Cory’s warm shirt like a petulant child. How could I say good-bye? It literally made me feel ill. I mean…this was not how we were supposed to break up. One of us was going to get tired of the other or we’d start fighting and throw cuss words at each other or…we’d live happily ever after, making tons of cute blonde and brunette babies. And if one of the rotten munchkins messed up at all, we’d say it was the others’ fault like a funny, cute old couple.

But no.

It was like someone was about to rip off one of my fingernails. Pure torture.


He tried to comfort me like always. “Listen, Lex, I’m sure we’ll go to the same college and that’s only two years from now. So, it’s not forever good bye.”


I sniffed. “But you’re going to find another girl who’s way prettier and smarter and who won’t fall over her big feet all the time.”


Stroking my cheek, he said, “There’s no one prettier or smarter than you. And I like catching you when you fall.” He blinked then said, “If we’re meant to be, Lexie, it’ll happen.”


“You sound like my uncle.”

“Well, it’s true.”

Tears pooled in my eyes. “And if we’re not meant to be?”


Eyes glittering, he whispered, “Then I got the privilege of knowing the prettiest, smartest, funniest girl who I love more than myself.”


He gave me a salty kiss as our glasses clinked but I didn’t care.


And then both of us cried for a bit until my mom called for me.


“Bye,” I said as our hands parted. It was like a ribbon that attached us was snipped by some evil scissors.


I knew I’d never see him again.





I wanted to be bitter. To blame Uncle Beau and my father for ripping me away from Cory, but as the weeks passed, and I saw how happy they were together, I couldn’t stay mad.

Fast forward to their tiny wedding, and I wholeheartedly was a fan.


The pure love I saw in my dad’s eyes made me extremely happy.


I hoped one day, I’d find someone who’d love me the same way.


My mother burst into tears when Uncle Beau said his vows.


It was such an awesome day that I couldn’t even crack one joke about it.

Now that’s saying something!


Congratulations, Mr. & Mr. Blackwell-Day.

My two dads.

  1. Cory is the sweetest! ❤️ I have a feeling Lexie is right about their future, unfortunately 😦 But I hope he finds a wonderful girl someday and that they make each other very happy ❤️

    I’m glad Lexie was able to accept her dad and uncle’s relationship, and feel happy about their marriage. So important for her and her family to be happy and accept each other! Hopefully there won’t be too much drama in their future! This family has more than met their drama quota for a lifetime 😂

    Also, I hope blondie there is treating our girl Briar well and giving her the happiness she deserves ❤️❤️❤️

    1. We’ll see more of Jack, aka Blondie, next chapter and in a few more chapters throughout.

      Sadly, you maybe be right about Cory…but he will be the standard that all guys must rise to. Will Lexie be hard to please? Well, if Cory is the bar, I feel sorry for them! 😉

      Yes, she finally accepted her “different” family. Thankfully. And you’re right. This fam has met their drama quota! 😀 Bring on the rom com!

      1. I’m excited to get to know him! But also have a weapon at the ready in case I have to whoop his ass for mistreating Briar in any way 😛

        And yes, Cory is gonna be a tough one to beat! Excited to see what guy finally manages 😉

        1. Aww…it’s nice to have a bodyguard for Briar! 😉 Lexie would whoop his ass right along with Beau and August, so he better not mess up. He needs to treat her like the queen she is! 😀

  2. Awwww…..They looked so,happy and Lexie is happy for them…so,glad she got past her fantasy and has accepted that she now has two dads, maybe three soon! Haha. ❤️❤️❤️ So hoping Briar is happy too. She looks all cozy with the blonde guy. She is definitely happy for her brother.

    And Seth and Siobhan! Aging gracefully. And who is the other couple…I know I should know this, but…he looks like Seth. Did August have a brother…I think he did, but don’t recall.

    1. Yes, August has a little brother, Darius. He’s not so little anymore. Ha! He’s just as big as August and looks a lot like Seth. We’ll see him in the chapters to come (for a bit–it’s all about Lexie now). He’s married and we’ll meet her as well.

      (Maybe three dads soon!!! Time jump will tell all. 😉 )

  3. Awww, what a short and (bitter)sweet chapter. Poor Lexie, I don’t have much faith in her high school romance, but I do hope she finds a love that’s meant to be. ❤ ❤ It was nice to see Cory being so mature–what a wonderful first boyfriend, regardless of whether or not they end up together.

    Loved the Blackwell-Day wedding. ❤ ❤ So pretty! And the boys looked so happy and handsome.

    Lexie and Briar looked happy too, and I'm so glad everyone is moving forward with their lives. May everyone find happiness!

    1. It was a short chapter…setting up for a LONG chapter on Wednesday.

      Aww…thank you for the well wishes. Let’s hope no drama in the future (aw, hell, what am I saying…of course there will be drama but hopefully not for Beaugust or Briar and her man.)

      So glad you liked the wedding. Had to keep it small–immediate family only. (For my sanity.) They did look handsome in their matching suits. And now…bring on the nooboos! 😉

  4. Dark WitcHazard: OMG in that outfit Lexie looks like a teen edgy version of Bayonetta love that game! Boo for coming to a understanding you’re supptto secretly such for their demise but always wear a smile! But oh well guess now that rom com scenario is starting I’ll have to settle for the obvious miscommunication shenanigans!

    Lover WitcHazard: Eeeeekkkkk! Look at my baby all old and handsome with his lovely wife eeekkk! And Darius you massive hunk you! I’ll forgive you for losing my wedding invitation cause your wife is gorgeous and you to looks so good together! Also Blondie of Jack must be serious if he came to your girlfriends baby daddy’s wedding to her brother! Somebody is committed!😝 Also first loves are the best if they’re good they let you know how to love that way when you meet your true love it’s a lot easier to know if it’s real or not!

    Shipper WitcHazard: Such a tearful beginning the farewells at the airport totally rom comish! Week I love weddings for one of my ships it’s so magical! Can’t wait to meet Jack and Darius’s wife!

    Nooboos WitcHazard: Bring on the Nooboos!😎

    1. Dark: a rom com can’t be THAT full of angst. A deep seated hatred of her steps might be funny but it’d take the focus off where this is headed. No doubt you’ll be pleased by some of the characters. I promise.

      Lover— your baby does age well! Still hot pushing 60. A gray fox! Jack is serious so you will be seeing more of him. 😏 First loves are the best…training for the future.

      Shipper— sorry for the sinking of Ship Cexie but there will be many more ships to take its place!

      Nooboos— I can promise LOTS of nooboos! 🤣


  5. Omg! Wedding!
    I mean, er, back it up…ahh, that was such a sad goodbye (noooooo), Lexie gives me PANGS with her descriptions 😭

    You know what? Fuck it; I’m going to go against the grain and just indulge in wishful thinking about her and Cory #Cexie4Lyfe

    Okay, WEDDING; EEE, I loved seeing everyone (hai Siobhan and Julian-Usurper! ❤️) Oh man, it makes me miss past Days tho (Alex and Knight 😭)

    Everyone is getting OLD, Pammie; I don’t like it 😱

    1. Soooo…you want Cexie forever? So do I! 😭 We’ll see what the future brings.

      It was a sad goodbye…and a goodbye to the teen years. Gotta grow up, Lex!

      Julian-usurper. 😛 I forgot you were a Julian shipper.

      I hate the circle of life! But Siobhan and Sethie wear their wrinkles well! Still in incredible shape. So, they might have a long life. 🤷‍♀️

  6. Okay. I’m happy August is a married man at last, even though I didn’t expect it to ever happen. I’m glad the choice has finally been made, no more confusion, especially for Lexie.
    Can’t wait to see what the future in the big city holds for the girl and if it makes her forget Cory easily or not.

    1. Yay! You’re happy that August is settled. I decided NOT to go by the gen rules in this one. Story and characters first, rules second.

      We will have a huge time leap next chapter so we’ll see how Lex settles in.

  7. The start of the chapter hit me on the feelings…separations are always hard.
    It’s a relief that Lexie is finally accepting/understanding of Beaugust 🙂
    I am thrilled about the next chapters and whatever Lexie will get herself into…haha !

  8. She IS on board with Beaugust. She loves it that her dad is happy, finally.

    And actually, Siobhan is a GILF…technically since this is from Lexie’s POV. 🤣

  9. That was so sad that Lexie had to leave Cory behind! I do hope these two will see each other again! If not, I know she will find a boy that’s has a personality like Cory’s while he finds a wonderful girl for himself!

    More importantly, I’m pleased that Lexie finally accepted and understood Beaugust and OMG, the wedding happened! It was beautiful! Great to see Shiv and Seth there!

    Can’t wait for Lexie’s YA years! I know it’s going to be a mix of fun and drama!

    1. Lol! You’re right! Fun and drama on its way! Wednesday! 😱😱😱

      I was happy to be able to show August’s family. It had to be small because I didn’t have time for a huge wedding. Ugh!

  10. Love this story still so much! So I know you like to go off script sometimes on the challenge. So August got married ❤️ Yay! Did what Lexie witnessed with them check off the cheating? I hope it’s ok to ask…without a spoiler feature like the old forum I wasn’t sure!! I can’t wait to see what the future holds for Lexie!!

      1. Aww…I wonder what their daughter looks like. They had a daughter in game, too. She was Ethan’s date at August’s 18 year old birthday party when the knife was stolen.


    1. Yes…that was the cheating check off box with Lexie finding her dad and uncle. August’s personality by the ending just didn’t jive with the challenge rules and I knew from the beginning he was going to marry Beau. Notice, if you go back, Beau told August he wanted to get married and have lots of kids and August didn’t want any. Guess who wins on that dream? 🤣
