Family Feud

my name is Lexi, my mum had a best friend called Karen Payne, until one day one girl changed that, I was 11, from then on they never talked again, she had a son, I never met him, I remember Karen, I used to love her, Karen used to me, she kept telling me when I met her son she wanted us to like each other coz we were 'perfect', after this argument, my mum told us we had to move from where we were, we moved to the other side of Wolverhampton, 6 years later and I love a boyband, One Direction, my mum hated them, I have no idea why, an old friend where we used to live asks me to babysit, when she invites her cousin to come round things start to change, will Karen and my mum ever make up? will I ever meet Karen's son? if I do will I fall in love? or will we be forbidden because of the family feud? ps there will be a little swearing, but not much :)

6. bedtime

Lexi's point of view

8pm came,

"time for bed now" Liam announces

"awwww" they all moan, Liam and I chuckle,

"you sort the girls out, i'll sort the boys" Liam suggests,

I nod and tell the girls to come on, they hold my hand as we go upstairs, theres a baby monitor n their room just in case the baby starts crying, while we're upstairs getting the others changed, the girls share a room and the lads share a room, so Hope and Faith guide me to their room, it was filled with pink and princesses on the walls, you can defiantly tell that this is a girls room,

"can you wead us a stowy please" Faith begs,

"ok, but only a short one" I reply, both girls cheer

I help them into their PJ's and get them ready for bed, they both have separate beds, so I pull a chair in the middle of them so I can read a story, I scoop Hope up first since she was the youngest while Faith looked for a short story, she wrapped her arms around me as I carried her to her bed, I gently placed her down, she grabbed her teddy, I tucked her in, by now Faith had chosen a short story, I scooped Faith up and carried her to her bed, I placed her down she got her teddy and I tucked her in, I sat on the chair and started t read the chosen book.

at the end Hope was fast asleep, but Faith was still awake,

"Faith dear, why arnt you asleep" I asked softly,

"I don't know, I twied, but I couldn't" she replied, "can you sing fow me pwease" she begged,

"I cant sing" I replied,

"pwease" she pleaded giving me the puppy dog eyes,

"fine, but don't blame me if I burst your eardrums" I said,

"you wont" she laughed,

"what do you want me to sing" I asked,

"Moments by One Direction, if you know it" she replied, is she kidding, I knew every One Direction lyric of by heart

"of course" I smiled,

"shut the door, turn the light off, I wanna be, with you, I wanna feel, your love, I wanna lay beside you, I cannot hide this, even though I try, heart beats harder, time escapes me, trembling hands touch skin, it makes this, harder, and the tears stream down my face" I sang soothingly, I could see her eye lids going heavier

"if we could only have this life for one more day, I we could only turn back time...you know ill be, your life, your voice, your reason to be, my love, my heart, is breathing for this, moment, in time, ill find the words to say, before you leave me today" I sang again,

 by the end of the song she was fast asleep, I kissed her on the head, and then Hope,

"goodnight" I whispered and turned myself around, only to see Liam standing at the door smiling,

Liam's point of view

I finally got the lads off to sleep and made my way to the stairs, that is until I heard

"heart beats harder, time escapes me, trembling hands touch skin, it makes this, harder, and the tears stream down my face" was that...no it cant be Lexi,

can it, whoever it was had a beautiful voice, so I made my way to the girls room and peered through the door

"if we could only have this life for one more day, I we could only turn back time...you know ill be, your life, your voice, your reason to be, my love, my heart, is breathing for this, moment, in time, ill find the words to say, before you leave me today" her voice was amazing, I listened throughout the song

she kissed them on the cheek said goodnight and then turned around, and saw me, I smiled, her cheeks went bright red, awww cute,

"umm...hey...Liam" she said awkwardly, I chuckled,

"lets go downstairs" I said, she nodded "by the way, nice voice" I smiled and walked downstairs, with Lexi following

I sat on the couch, and she sat at the side of me, on the edge,

"you do know I don't bite" I smiled,

"I know, but...." she started,

"but nothing, we're going to have to get used to each other" I replied,

"I know" she replied,

"what's up, you don't like me" I asked,

"yes I do coz your really nice, im just shy" she replied,

"awwww, you don't need be shy around me, what about, tomorrow, we can spend more time together somehow, and get to know each other while the kids are at school, and then on Wednesday i'll get the lads around" I suggested,

"sounds great, but about the lads, you do realize i'll be shy again" she replied, I chuckled,

"trust me, when Louis is involved, you wont be shy for long" I replied, she giggled a little,

just then she yawned,

"tired" I asked,

"a little" she replied,

"cmon, lets go to bed, where are we sleeping" I asked,

"umm...well...uhhh.....your cousin said she had to lock her's and Daniel's bedroom from the kids and theres only one spare room, so we have to...uhh...share a room...with separate beds though" she replied,

"oh..uhh right...come on then" I replied back,

 I grabbed my bag while Lexi got hold of the baby we knew there were a cot in the spare room so she would just sleep there, we went upstairs, I placed my bag in the corner, it was a small room, it was like being inside a bedroom in a caravan (if you've ever been in one, if not, there really small) but a bit bigger, only a bit though, the beds were placed next to each other under the window, it looked like a double bed.

at the bottom of the bed was the baby's cot, and at the opposite side of the room was a wardrobe where I placed my bag there, and Lexi's bag was there to, we'll unpack tomorrow, this is going to be fun, our beds are next to each other, my cousin did say we had separate beds, but she didn't mention they were next to each other, Lexi and I looked at each other awkwardly,

"umm...do you want to sleep next to the window or what" I asked awkwardly,

"you can go first" she said, I nodded and went in the bed, Lexi then slid  in the bed next to me, I felt fair close to her,

"umm...goodnight" she said,

"goodnight Lexi, sweet dreams" I said,

"you to" she smiled at me, I smiled back and we went to sleep
