"HOW HAVE YOU BEEN, IAN?"

MY father grinned with Oakleigh by his side as Ada welcomed them in. I had my sister in the tightest hug I could muster in that moment, and she groaned quietly when Ada continued to speak to my father.

"Mira," she patted my back. "There's something called oxygen, and I'm going to need some of it right now."

Laughing, I pulled back to stare at her and try to notice all the changes since the last time I saw her, which was three months ago. "I've missed you so much." My eyebrows lowered and I narrowed my eyes. "Dad let you get a nose pierce?"

The scoff that was emitted from my dad's mouth was clear and audible. "Girl, you know I would never." He rolled his eyes and shook his head. "She was grounded for two weeks."

Oakleigh shrugged her shoulders and touched her nose ring with her fingertips. "Totally worth it." She grinned and narrowed her eyes back at me. "You can talk since you got your first tattoo when you were eighteen."

"Key word being eighteen." Ada chimed in with a laugh. "Before we go out, are you guys hungry? Mira just made some lunch."

My dad threw his arm over my shoulder and hugged me to his side. "You know how much I love my baby girl's cooking."

For the rest of the afternoon, I spent time, that was long overdue, with my family. In a way, it reminded me of the times where my mother would have us around the table for breakfast, lunch and dinner everyday, like clockwork. One thing she always said was that she cherished the times where all of the family were together. It meant everything to her.

Truthfully, she only began the family tradition after she found out about her cancer, which I wasn't told about after a year of her diagnosis. She was very good at hiding things from me, something I resented since it filled my mind with how I could've spent that year differently.

The ringing of my phone pulled me from my pensive mood, a smile gracing my face when I glanced upon Sebastian's caller ID.

"Hey, pumpkin." I could practically see the signature grin on his face and the sound of his deep voice made my day. "Did I call at a bad time?"

I shook my head. Oakleigh and Dad were at the supermarket buying bottled water since they didn't like drinking from the taps too often. And they wanted drinks for the journey back home. "Now is actually a good time. I was literally staring at the wall."
