Having that One Thing

When eighteen year old Brie finds five cute, British boys on her doorstep, she doesn't know of the value their names hold. She thinks they are guys off the street. Until they ask her to come on their Take Me Home tour. She made a promise to herself the moment she stepped on the bus that she wouldn't fall for one of them, but as she draws closer, can she resist her temptation?


1. Steps

I hope that my dad doesn't come home tonight. I know he's at the bar because his work buddy just posted a picture of my dad and him holding to beer bottles in their hands. My father tends to get abusive when he binge drinks or has any alcohol in his system.

I was lying on the couch, watching the news when I heard a knock on the door. Considering the picture of my dad was on Facebook a minute ago, I knew it wasn't him. We live twenty miles from the nearest town so I don't have any clue who it could be.

As not to be rude, I opened the door and saw a rugged group of guys. They had torn clothes and pitch black blotches on their shirts and pants.

There were five of them. One blonde with the biggest grin on his face, one with a shaved head and the largest brown eyes, one with curly hair and dimples when he smiled, one with light brown hair who was laughing hysterical, and one with a black beanie on his head and staring down at his phone. What is this, some kind of joke?

" I'm sorry, I don't solicite money." I tried to close the door but a foot had gotten in the frame, blocking me from escaping.

" Oh, no miss. We need some help. Our bus broke down about a mile from here and we wondering if you knew of anyone who could help or if we could call a towing service to help us." Well, the blonde boy has an Irish tongue.

" Ummmm... the only phone in the house is in my dad's room and I'm not allowed to go in there. I have no idea how to fix cars, either, so I'm no help."

I felt bad for them. Getting stuck in the middle of no where isn't a 'dog and pony show'. On all theboys faces, though, were those cute, boyish smiles that would make any girl swoon.

" That's okay. Do you-" But, Curly-Cue was cut off by a rough voice behind him.

"BRIENNA MELISSA LYNN!!! What have I told you about answering the door?!"

My dad pushes the boys onto the ground,like a semi truck knocking over orange cones. The boys tumble onto the ground in a pile, groaning from the pain inflicted on their bodies.

As for my dad, he made it to me while bounding the two steps. He slapped me across the face and I fell instantly, holding my now red cheek. He laughed a cynical laugh, like he enjoyed my pain. Then, I saw him on the floor and felt myself being lifted off the ground into strong ams. Before I knew it, I was blacked out and my dreams were filled with those steps.
