8. Chapter 8


      I'm so sorry for the inconsistency of the chapters and this chapter might not be that great so I apologize in advance. If you guys could tell me whether or not to continue or whether or not you enjoyed, that'd be greatly appreciated. I love you all! MUAH! <3 


      I slowly opened my eyes, still feeling like I didn't get nearly enough sleep. I looked up to see Jack cuddled into me, his arms wrapped securely around my waist. He began to stir as I cuddled my head into his chest.

      "Good morning. Are you comfortable?" Jack laughed sleepily. "Yes." I giggled, still half asleep.

      Suddenly there was a knock on my door. "Hey Cassidy is Jack in there with you?" Of course it was Alex.

      "Yeah he's in here, why?"

      "Just wondering, I haven't seen him since he went up here with you last night. Is everything okay?" Alex had a slight sound of worry in his voice. "Yes Alex, everything's fine. There's no need to worry, that's Zack's job." I laughed slightly at my last comment.

      Alex opened the door, looking inside. Clearly he didn't believe me that everything was okay, not like he ever believes me anyway. 

      "Oh am I interrupting something?" Alex asked awkwardly.

      "No, me and Cassidy were watching movies yesterday and we fell asleep." Jack laughed his goofy laugh.

      "Oh. Clearly I'm an idiot." Alex laughed, rubbing the back of his neck. It was obvious this situation was making him a little uncomfortable. I got up from Jack and walked over to Alex, wrapping my arms around him. "You're not an idiot Alex." I whispered. "Nothing happened between me and Jack, trust me." 

      "Okay." Alex immediately relaxed and hugged me back. "Well I'm assuming you guys are probably hungry and Zack made breakfast for us."

      Jack and I both nodded our heads and followed Alex downstairs. The smell of pancakes, eggs, bacon and hash browns filled the air.

      "Hey look they're alive!" Rian teased. "Yeah we are. And I don't know about Jack, but I'm ready for food." I sleepily rubbed my eyes and stretched. 

      "Of course I want food! Who do you think I am?" Jack laughed, poking me in the side. I laughed, walking over to the kitchen table and sat down. Jack sat at the end of the table, moving closer to me so he could lean his head on my shoulder. "Is someone still a little tired?"

      "Maybe." Jack said, snuggling into my neck. "That feels weird stop it." I laughed, trying to move away. I glanced up at Alex, who had an odd look on his face. I stuck my tongue out at him and immediately his attitude changed. He laughed and got his breakfast.

      "Here Cassidy, considering you're too lazy to get your own breakfast." Zack handed me a plate of food, ruffling my hair. "Okay first, thank you for making breakfast, second that was unnecessary and third, I'm not lazy, I could've gotten my own breakfast." I pouted, lightly hitting him in the arm. He only looked at me and laughed.

      Jack tried stealing a piece of bacon from my plate, but I hit his hand away and glared at him. He smirked at me and got up to get his own breakfast. As he stood up, I protected my food, mostly because he would try stealing something again and I don't like people trying to steal my food.

      "Oh are you guys starting to get ready for tour?" I asked, moving my food around with my fork.

      "Yeah, we've started doing a few things here and there. We should be ready some time next week." Alex said, as he down to left of me. I glared at him. "You love annoying me by sitting there don't you?"

      He just smiled at nodded his head. Jack sat down in his spot at the end of the table, Zack sat across from me and Rian sat across from Alex. We all continued talking about the upcoming tour and ate our breakfast. As we were talking, Alex's phone rang.

      "Hello? Oh hi. I'm just eating breakfast." Alex looked at his plate, clearly not amused. There was a long pause. "Can you give me a minute or two? Okay, I'll see you soon. I love you. Yep. Bye."

     Jack gave me a look, clearly he knew who Alex was talking to. Anyone could've guessed who he was talking to. It was obviously his girlfriend Jess. Even the thought of her made me feel sick. "So Alex, I'm assuming you're leaving?"

     "Yep, Jess called me. She needs to talk to me about something important. I won't be gone too long." Alex gathered up the remains of his food and threw it out then quickly ran upstairs.

     I glanced at my plate, realising I hadn't touched anything except for one pancake. I attempted to take another bite of food, feeling terrible after eating it so I decided to throw it away. Jack came up behind me, putting his head on top of mine as I rinsed off my plate. "Hey Cassidy, you okay?"

    "Yeah I'm fine, why?" I put my plate on the counter and turned around, looking up into Jack's eyes.

    "It's just that I haven't noticed you eating a whole lot." He spoke quietly, placing a hand on my shoulder. "Jack you need to stop worrying, that's Zack's job."

    He gave me a slight smile and put his plate on the counter, Zack and Rian walking over with their plates. "It's starting to get on my nerves that Alex has to leave at the most inconvenient times." Zack said as rinsed off his plate.

   "Yeah me too, it's all Jess' fault. She seems really clingy and Alex doesn't do anything about it." Rian added, leaning back against the counter. Jack made a whipping sound, making all of us laugh. 

    We were too busy laughing to realise that Alex had been behind us the entire time. He cleared his throat and we immediately stopped. "Is that what you guys think? It isn't Jess' fault, so don't even try blaming her for anything. She isn't clingy, why the hell would you guys say that?! I'm not 'whipped', I love her and you guys need to realise that. You know what? Fuck you guys." Alex screamed, storming off and slamming the door as he left.

    We all stood there, shocked that Alex would react like that. I'm not even sure how long we were there. Just standing in silence, looking at each other.

   "Well shit. That can't possibly be good." Jack spoke, breaking the silence. We all glared at him and he realised that he shouldn't have spoken at all. 

    "Guys, I'm pretty sure Alex won't be coming back any time soon." I whispered. The guys looked at me with questioning looks on their faces. "Whenever Alex gets that mad, he tries to stay away from whatever caused him to feel that way. All I'm saying is that he has clothes at Jess' house and she'll try anything to keep him over there."
