Demi *kisses her daughters cheek* Don't be scared sweetie
Alex: What if nobody likes me?
Demi *hugs her* What's not to like about you?
Alex *lets go* Bye mommy
Demi: Do want me to come in with you?
Alex *shakes her head* I'm a big girl
Demi: Be good
Alex: I will mommy *runs into school*
I watch my little angel run off to her class. I can't believe it, it's her first day of school. It seems like yesterday when I held her in my arms for the first time. Soon enough, I'll be buying her first car and the she'll be getting married and be moving out before I know it. Life just goes way to fast. I had just one wish. I wish Alex's father was here to watch her grow up, but I guess, life isnt fair; to anyone.
Alex *shy, sitting in the corner*
??: Are you ok?
Alex: I'm s-scared
??: Well I'm Joe, how are ya?
Alex *giggles* I'm Alex
Joe: That's very cool
Alex: My mommy told me not to talk to strangers
Joe: I'm your teacher sweetie, don't worry
Alex: I want to go home
Joe: School only started 10 minutes ago, is it that bad?
Alex: I don't have any friends
Joe *kneels down next to her* I'll be your friend
Alex: You're old
Joe *fake gasps* I'm not old miss-
Alex: Lovato, Miss Alex Lovato
Joe (LOVATO? Could it be..?) That's a pretty name
Alex: My mommy named me
Joe: She must be pretty to then *smiles*
Alex: She's the best mommy in the world
Joe: I'm sure she is. Would you like to draw a picture?
Alex *nods* Can I a picture of my mommy?
Joe: Of course, I'll be back in a while to see it
Alex *takes out paper and starts drawing*
I'm doing this again. I'm trying to start dating again. No matter how much Alex's father messed up my heart, I still need a man in my life. I need a man to take care of Alex and I.
Sterling: How's Aex doing?
Demi: She started school today
Sterling: Hows the proud mother?

Alex: She's coming to pick me up, you can show her
Joe: School is over in 2 minutes so you can pack your bag
Alex: Ok *puts her things away*
Joe: You can bring your mom in here if you want

Joe: Are you ok Demi?
Demi: Joe, I have something to say
Demi: I'm p-pregnant
Demi *breaks down crying* I can't do this alone
