12. Barbeque/Pool Party

Sometime around noon-ish Ciara and Violet arrived. Violet brought her older brother, Ace who is 18 who brought a couple of his friends. And Ciara brought her younger sister, Melody. Brad arrived with all his friends too. Soon it turned into a huge party. I was on the grill making everything with some help from Violet, Ace and Ciara. Melody wasn't really the helping type. Anyways there was loads of people and only two grills so we split up Violet and I on one grill, Ace and Ciara on the other.

"Can I go swimming for just a bit." Violet asked giving me her puppy dog eyes.

" I already told you. If I let you go Ace and Ciara would want to go too. Then i'd have nobody the help me. Anyways you get to sleepover and we could always go swimming tomorrow." I replied.

"Fine" she said pouting. 

People kept complementing us on our grilling and telling me i throw a great party and all that. Eventually everyone left by 6. 

Brad went to his house, Ace dropped Melody home and went home. Violet and Ciara stayed though. 

"Can we go swimming for a little bit?" Violet asked. 

I simply replied by stripping out of my shirt And shorts and diving into the pool. I was soon followed by Ciara and 
Violet. Soon Maddison can home. 

"I see you have a pool party without me" she said smiling.

"Where the hell have you been you were out all day without giving Brad or me an explanation. then you waltz un and act like nothing has happened. go home and talk o your brother, you have no idea how worried he was."

She glanced down at her feet and quietly went home. 

She honestly had me worried, especially with the baby and all. I noticed her bump was starting to shoe a little but i don't think anybody noticed. She hasn't told anyone else about her pregancy but she better tell them soon. If they find out bu themselves, who knows what could happen. 

Later that day, Violet, Ciara and I watched a whole bunch of movies ranging from romance to comedy to horror. 

We were in the middle of watching Insidious when we got so scared. Violet ended up calling Ace to pick us up so we can go to her house. I don't even know why we started watching scary movies. I guess we learned out lesson: never watch scary movies ever again.

We shut off the tv and quickly gathered our things. We waited downstairs by the door for Ace. We heard a honking but we were all to scared to go check. Soon we heard a car door slam and footsteps up tonour porch followed by the the doorbell ringing. 

"Oh my gosh, what if its a killer?" Violet said. 

"Come on Vi, we all know its your brother. " Ciara stated

"Then why don't you go open the door?" Violet questioned. 

"Yea, i'd rather not." She replied turning to me. "Lexi it's your house you should open the door" she said, now putting the pressure in me. 

"Seriously but what if Violet is ri-," i was cut off by Ace. "

"Open the door an hurry up its 2 in the morning" he exclaimed. 

"That is definitely my brother" Violet said heading towards the door.

She cautiously opened the door to see her brother standing there with a pissed off expression. 

"What is wrong with you three. You call me at two in the morning, so I could come pick you up because you are scared. Then you take forever to open the door. Now get your asses to the car before I leave you here." He said that all in one breath, then takes a deep breath. His face was slightly red. I noticed Violet looking at him with a sheepish expression. Ciara looked like she was about cry and I was just star stuck. I never realized how cute Ace was. 

"Now!" he yelled startling us all and breaking me out of my gaze. We scurried to the car. Ciara and I went to the back while Violet sat next to her brother. When we finally arrived at her house we all headed upstairs. 

"Violet" Ace called as we headed upstairs. "I need to speak to you."

"Umm sure." Violet replied "Why don't you to go up to my room and make yourselves comfortable." She said turning to us. 

Ciara and I headed upstairs. 

"What do you think that was about" Ciara asked. I just shrugged we fixed our stuff, then started up a conversation while waiting for Violet.

We soon heard screaming going on downstairs. Ciara and I crept to the top of the staircase, to listen in on the conversation. 

"You can't do that to me" Violet shouted. 

"I'm sorry but I can't take it anymore. Anyways one year is not that long. " Ace replied with a quieter voice. 

"One year is a really long time." She replied her voice breaking. 

"It's not me, it's the law. I promise i'll be back for you." He said. I shifted so i could getter a better view of them. Ace pulled Violet into a hugged and that's when i heard her start to sob. 

"If you can't take it anymore, what makes you think I can." She got out in between sobs.

"Because I know you. You're strong. Sometimes stronger than me." He replied kissing her forehead and holding her out at arm's length. 

"When do you leave" she asked. 

His arms dropped to his sides and he looked at his feet. He mumbled something i couldn't hear but by the look on Violet's face it was soon. 

"That's two days. Are you kidding me?" She yelled. "Your a pathetic excuse for a brother." She said and turned on her heels, while heading for the stairs. 

Ciara and I dashed back to her room and sat down acting like nothing happened. 

"Oh my gosh" i exclaimed, trying to play it off that we weren't listening to Violet and Ace's conversation. "He is really cute." 

"Who?" Violet asked masking her emotions. 

"Your brother" Ciara replies smirking. Violet raised a brow at her questioningly. "Kidding. We were talking about the new kid, Kai. He lives on my block." She smirked again. "Oh that reminds me Saturday night, party at Kai's house. We meet at mine okay."

We all agreed. We stayed up that night gossiping and not watching anymore tv. Ciara did my nails she's a pro at it. They were pink, purple, green and teal hearts with a white background. They were really cute. 

I awoke before the others and quickly gathered my things. It was Sunday which meant I had to get home quickly to avoid my dad. We haven't had a proper talk since that dad in the hospital. He tried to apologize and explain himself but i've stopped him many times. I sometimes left the house, locked myself in the bathroom and turn the shower in to drown out his voice or put the sound up on my earbuds, so i couldn't hear him. 

I guess you could say I'm not very good with confrontation


I'm soo sorry I took so long to update. I've been pretty busy with school work. I think I am a two or three weeks behind but I promise, I'll find a way to make it up.






By the way, who watched Catching Fire? I know it came out like a week ago but I had to ask. I watched it and it was awesome. My favorite part was that little moment between Katniss and Peeta before they went to the tree. Comment your favorite part below.





Oh, and for all the Americans: Have A Great Thanksgiving!
