22. On Three!

Carter’s POV


We were watching ‘Finding Nemo’ when the front door burst open. I didn’t bother moving my head from Niall’s lap at all since I was, comfy, warm, and just about to dose off. All the boys walked in the living room and stopped whatever they were talking about and looked over at Niall and I. “When did this happen?” Louis said while wiggling his eyebrows, making Harry hit him on the back of the head. “Ow!” Louis let out a little shriek. “Shhhh.” Was all Niall said back. He then pointed down at me and everyones eyes looked down at me. They all nodded their heads then walked off to the kitchen. “You can sleep.”  He said into my ear and kissed my head, just like last night. Shortly after, sleep did take over me.


Harry’s POV 


We had left this morning to get breakfast and bring something back for the two sleepy heads. Luke had taken us to a little bakery up the street, that really reminded me of the one back home. We all ordered what we wanted, then Liam ordered for Niall, and Luke ordered for Carter. While we were waited for our food I saw Luke talking to someone. We grabbed our order when it was ready and started making our way back to the house. “I hope they got the note we left them.” Liam said. “Oh, I’m sure they got it. The first thing Carter does every morning is go to the kitchen.” Luke reassured. Luke said earlier that the bakery wasn’t that far away so we walked there, and I’m happy we did. It was such a nice morning, the sun was shining, birds chirping, it was just relaxing.


We walked up to the front door and walked in after Luke unlocked it. We all walked into the living room with the bag of food in hand. Carter, I must say, eats a lot of food, though not as much as Niall. (Some-what close!). I heard what sounded like the TV in the living room playing. Following the sound, we found Niall and Carter, almost asleep in his lap, watching ‘Finding Nemo’. “When did this happen?” Louis said wiggling his eyebrows, making me slap the back of his head. “Ow!” Louis yelled quietly and turned to me. Niall then Shhhh’d us, pointing down at Carter, moving everyone’s eyes to her. We all nodded our heads and headed for the kitchen. Before walking into the kitchen, I turned around to hear Niall say to Carter “You can sleep.” He then gave her a kiss on the head. I smiled at that, then walked into the kitchen. “Hey Luke where are the plates?” I asked. “Oh. Here. How many do you need?” He asked. “Two.” He then handed me the two plates, that where in a drawer in front of him. “Thanks.” I said. I walked over to one of the bags from the bakery and started put Niall’s and Carter’s food on the plates. Once I got all their food piled onto the plates, I walked back out to the living room and saw that Carter was out like a light. “Hey we brought you guys some breakfast.” I whispered, while putting the plates done on the table. “Thanks.” “You know she eats almost as much as you. What are we going to do when the both of you are on the tour bus!” I whispered, earning a little laugh from Niall since he didn’t want to wake up Carter. I sat down on the other sofa and started watching ‘Finding Nemo’ with Niall, still thinking of what he did to Carter. The other lads soon came in and started watching with us.


The movie was over now and Carter was still fast asleep. “Here, let me see her.” Luke said while standing up. Niall then moved his arm so Luke could pick her up. Luke then started carrying her outside? We all got interested and followed him to the backyard. He made his way over to the side of the pool and yelled “WHO THINKS I SHOULD THROW CARTER IN THE POOL?!” I saw Carter open her eyes right away, confused. “DO IT!” Louis yelled. The other boys yelled in agreement. “No! Wait, what?!” Carter yelled. “WAIT!” I yelled running over to them. Carter gave me a hopeful look. “I’ll help!” I said with a smirk on my face. "No!" Carter squealed. I grabbed onto the other side of her and looked at her. “You guys really hate me don’t you?” She said while looking back and forth from us. “No, We just love you SOOO MUCH!” Luke said. “On three!” I said to him. He nodded his head and we started swinging her back and forth. “One. Two. THREE!” We started throwing her into the pool, but at the last second she grabbed onto our arms and pulled us in with her. I swam back up to the surface gasping for air. I poked around the pool and saw Luke but no Carter. I started looking around more and more along with Luke’s help. “What are you doing?” I heard a girls voice echo threw the air. I looked over at the other end of the pool to see Carter there. “How did you get over there?” I asked, impressed. She swam over and said “I swam. Nothing very special.” She started swimming around a little, every so on she would go under water and not come back up after a bit. “Come on don’t want anyone getting sick.” Liam said walking out of the house with some towels in hand. Carter then swam over to the edge and put her hand up in the air. Liam put his hand in hers, but instead of pulling her out of the water she pulled him in. Liam didn't even have time to yell. “COME ON GUYS THE WATER FEELS GREAT!” She called. She barely finished her sentence until the other boys were jumping in the pool making waves and huge splashes in the water.


We were still swimming around when we all heard a lady yell. “LUKE, CARTER, I’M HOME!” I looked over at Luke and Carter and the lady that yelled didn’t even faze them. The lady soon walked out to where we where in the backyard. “Luke, Carter! You did not tell me you where having friends over!” “Welllll, technically one of them is our older brother.” Carter said to her. “What do you mean?” “Harry is our step-brother.” I waved to the lady and smiled at her. She smiled back at me then turned back to Carter and Luke. “You’ll have to clean up the living room again.” They just nodded their heads in response. She walked back into the house. Carter and Luke just started laughing like crazy. “Two times in one week! Just like old times!” Carter said laughing even harder. “So now you guys have met mom.” Luke said laughing still. “Do you guys get into a lot of trouble when you are together or something?” Zayn asked. “Yeah, but we do clean up the mess we make.” Carter said. “What’s the best prank you guys have done?” Louis asked. “We'll never tell.” “That’s just mean.” Louis said, disappointed. “What can we say. We’re partners in crime” They said in sync, laughing still.
