As I walked down the hall towards my brothers’ room, I heard the sound of shattering glass. Since I was only a few feet from the stairs I ran to them. I ran down the stairs taking two at a time. Once I reached the bottom, I sprinted down the hall towards where the shattering sound came from. I ended up at my mom and dad’s room.
I pushed the door open and ran into the room to see what had happened. Immediately my eyes landing on my mother, as she stood in the middle of the room. Her whole body was shaking and her hands were covering her mouth.
“Mom, what happened?” I asked walking towards her slowly as I shut the door behind me. She screamed frightened and turned around.
“Jesus Murphy Aubrey, you scared the living daylights out of me!” She said putting a hand over her chest where her heart is.
“Sorry mom. What happened? I heard a shatter” I asked pulling her into a hug.
“Oh, the mirror in the bathroom over the sink fell” She said hugging me back.
“What!” I exclaimed pulling away from her and holding her at arm’s length so I could look over her to make sure she wasn’t hurt.
“I’m fine. I was trying to reach the extra tube of toothpaste on the top shelf of the cupboard and the cupboard door swung out too far and hit the mirror over the sink, knocking it loose and it fell. It just startled me” She said.
“Okay, are you sure you-” I started to say but was cut off by my brothers and dad yelling.
“Avery! Aubrey!” My dad yelled.
“Mom! Aub!” My three brothers yelled.
“Were in here Callum” My mom yelled back while pulling me into another hug.
We could hear their feet pounding on the marble floor as they run towards the bedroom. The doors of the bedroom were thrown open as my dad and 3 brothers came tearing in.
“What happened?” Dad asked, pulling my mom and me into a hug.
“Were fine Callum, the mirror over the sink in the bathroom had fallen off its hook. Aubrey got here shortly after” Mom explained.
“Are you sure mom? “ Drake asked stepping closer while looking at our mom with worried eyes.
“Yes, I’m sure, thank you for your concern. Now all of you go. I still have a lot of packing to do. Shoo! Go!” She said motioning with her hands for us to leave.
“Avery, are you sure you’re okay?” Dad asked our mom as us kids were leaving.
“Yes Callum. I swear I’m fine. It just startled me is all” Mom said as I closed the door behind me.
The boys were already a third of the way to the stairs when I had closed the door. Their heads were bent together, whispering amongst one another.
“Hey!” I yelled, running to catch up with them. They all had stopped and turned around to look at me.
“Yes?” Drake asked raising an eyebrow.
“You said you needed me out of the house tonight. Why?” I asked, crossing my arms.
The 3 of them exchanged a look then looked back at me smirking.
“Oh no! No, no, no, no, no! Dad said you can’t have a party, you heard him!” I said loudly.
“Shhh!” The boys hissed.
“I will not ‘Shhh’! Dad said no parti-” I had started to say but was cut off by Kale throwing me over his shoulder. “Kale put me down!” I yelled thumping my fists into his back and struggling to get out of his hold.
Drake and Adian were cracking up laughing as Kale carried me, over his shoulder, down the hall.
“I hate you three!” I spat at them enraged. By the time Kale was starting to ascend the stairs, Drake and Adian had caught up and were still chuckling at me. I glared at the two idiots I called my brothers, behind me.
“No, you don’t. You love us” Adian said smirking at me.
I opened my mouth to disagree but closed it when I realized that he, unfortunately, was right. But, I wasn’t about to admit that.
“Ass face” I murmured still glaring at them.
“I heard that” Adian said in a sing-song voice.
We finally came to a stop outside of Drake’s room. Drake stepped forward to open the door then walked in with us behind him. Kale plopped my down on Drake’s bed and backed away a few steps when I tried, but missed, to kick him.
“Ass” I said glaring at him.
“Love you too” He said laughing.
“Now why in the hell am I in here?” I asked, re-crossing my arms.
“We couldn’t risk mom or dad hearing you” Drake said as he jumped on the bed and laying back with his hands behind his head.
“Fine but, why do I have to leave? Can’t I just stay here? I’ll stay upstairs in my room and I’ll get Katelyn to stay up there with me” I said in a rush.
The 3 exchanged a glance with one another, debating whether or not to agree to what I had said.
“Fine” They said.
“Okay, can I go now? “ I asked.
“Yeah, you’re good. Just don’t tell mom or dad. Got it?” Adian said giving me a pointed look.
“I won’t” I whined.
“Good, now get off my bed” Drake said giving me a shove with his foot off his bed. I wasn’t expecting it so when he shoved me I went flying off his bed.
I screamed as I hit the floor. The boys stared wide-eyed and mouths open at where I had been sitting. I sat up from where I had landed. All my hair was in my face and sticking up in random places. I slowly turned my head towards them my nose scrunched up and a murderous glare on my face. A couple seconds later they all burst out laughing.
“Real funny just laugh it up” I said pushing the hair out of my face still glaring at them. This caused them to start laughing even harder.
Drake was holding his sides, rolling around on his bed laughing. Kale was hunched over also holding his sides laughing. And Adian was about to fall off Drake’s desk chair, which he had sat on when we came in, again also holding his sides laughing.
“You guys suck dick, you know that” I said getting up off the floor and walking towards the door. I glanced back at them one last time and saw them still laughing their asses off at what had happened. ‘Just for that, I’m definitely coming downstairs during their party tonight’ I thought to myself as I opened the door, walking out and slamming the door behind me.
This caused them to go into another fit of laughter which I could still hear as I walked down the hall to the stairs. “Stupid frickan fat ass idiots” I mumbled to myself angrily.
Once I reached the stairs I climbed up them towards my room to call Katelyn. When I reached my room I pushed my door open and walked straight over to my bedside table, where my phone was laying. I opened it, punching in her number and putting it to my ear when it began to ring.
“Yes my love?” Katelyn answered.
“Come over tonight” I laughed.
“Fine” She sighed sounding annoyed but, knowing her she meant it in a joking matter.
“Okay good. Oh, and bring some party clothes” I said, a grin creeping onto my face.
“Oh! Party! Who’s party and where is it?” She asked sounding excited.
“Dumb, Dumber, and Dumbest and my house” I said.
“Whaaat!?” She exclaimed.
“Yup. Rental units are going on a business trip for 2 weeks” I said examining my nails.
“No. Freaking. Way” She squealed.
“Yeah, well their leaving in a half hour so come over in 45 minutes. Mmk?” I said.
“Awesome! I’ll see you then” She said.
“Okay bye” I said hanging up.
