The Soundtrack of My Summer, Ch. 43"Good morning." Emma woke up to the quiet and comforting voice of Mrs. Lynch, who was gently shaking Emma's shoulder. "Good morning." she repeated when Emma opened her eyes. She heard birds chirping outside. Light came in through the windows in the room. "Oh, good morning." Emma said, rubbing her eyes. Mrs. Lynch smiled. "I thought I had better wake you up. It's only seven o' clock, but I figured you needed to pack up and get ready for your day." Emma sat up in her bed. Her plane would be leaving in five hours. "Thank you. I do have a lot to do before I go. Oh, and thanks so much for letting me sleep here." Emma said with a sleepy smile. "Well, of course! Anytime." Mrs. Lynch told Emma. She sat on the side of the bed, and then added with a smile, "And I do mean 'anytime.'" Emma smiled back. "I'm not too sure when I'll be back. Or," Emma started. "if I will be able to come back." Mrs. Lynch nodded. "I understand. Plane tickets can be a pretty penny. I've really learned that from all ofMore Like This
The Soundtrack of My Summer, Ch. 42Perhaps it was the comfort of resting her head against the boy who she had feelings about- feelings that she had never experienced before with any other person- that made Emma shut her eyes and fall asleep.

After a short time, Emma was awoken by Ross lightly shaking her arm. "Hey." he said quietly. "You ready to head inside?" Emma felt the breeze against her face and the cool grass underneath her hands. "Yeah." Emma said. She sat up and took one last look at the stars. "You were right." she told Ross. "This is really something." "It's pretty amazing, how you can see something everyday and just take it for granted. My parents taught me to appreciate the little things. Like nature, and the sky." Ross told Emma. He stood up and held out a hand for Emma. She took his hand and
The Soundtrack of My Summer, Ch. 41"About time." Rocky said with a smile when Ross and Emma came into the kitchen. "Sorry, we were changing clothes." Ross said. Emma looked at Laura, Raini and Samantha, who were sitting at the Lynch family's kitchen table along with Calum, Noah and Rocky. Laura and Raini smiled at Emma, and Emma wondered what Riker had told them that she and Ross were doing. Either way, chances were the girls would be asking her later on what actually happened.

Of course, out of a sense of politeness, he felt himself obligated to smile back. Her teeth were white and straight and so clean he could almost have sworn he saw the sunlight gleaming off of them, even while he was standing a few hundred feet away. She even offered a playful little wave, sort of a lazy, lopsided swipe of her hand through the air above her head, but he knew exactly that it was meant for him. She continued smiling at him until she eventually turned her head away, red hair whipping around her face. He immediately found himself smitten.
These days, not many girls smiled at him. In fact, no one smiled. They never really did before, either, but lately it was more common than ever to see a severe lack of grins on the street. He was honestly willing to take what he could get; there were worries
