"Ashton! Let's go! We have to meet uncle Niall at the airport!" I yelled. Ashton came running down the stairs and threw his suitcase down. "What did I tell you about throwing things!"! I said. "Calm down. Don't be so moody mum." He replied. "Get in the car." I said. Am I moody? I don't even know. "Alex honey, come on." I said. Alex came down the stairs with a pink suitcase. "I don't want to go." She said. "Why not?" I asked. "I never been out of Australia before. And I'm scared to go." She replied. I sighed. "Okay. I would send you to your fathers, but he isn't the best person to be around." I said. "Send me there." She said. "Why?" I asked. "He's still my dad. I have the right to see me father." She said. Honestly, every time she said dad and father, it killed me. "alright." I said.
We all got in the car. "Luke go to Tate's." I said. "Why?" He asked. "Alex is staying with her father for vacation. She doesn't want to go." I said. He sighed but drove there.
"What do you want?" Tate asked as he opened the door. "Your daughter wants to stay with you while we are on vacation." I replied. "Oh. Okay." He said. "Have a good time. If anything happens, aunt am is right down the street." I said. "I know mum." She replied. I kissed her head and she went inside. "Touch my daughter, I will kill you." I said before leaving. "You mean our daughter. We made her." He said. I rolled my eyes.
"Flight 127 leaving for Los Angeles, California now boarding." A lady said. "Come on." Luke said. "Alright. Ashton. Liz you two are here. Don't kill each other." I said. "Don't worry mum." Ashton said rolling his eyes. "I sit next to Niall and Harry. Great." I said. Michael laughed. Niall, Harry and I talked the entire ride to LA. Then, he brought up a topic.
"How Ashton been?" He asked. "Honestly, I don't know." I replied. "He's been... Not the same. He's getting an attitude with me now." I replied. "Like this morning. He threw his suitcase down the stairs, and I told him not to. And he said, why are you so moody." I said. "Do you want me to talk to him?" He asked. "I don't think he's that far yet." I replied. Niall nodded. "Do you think it's because of all the rumors going around?" He asked. "Possibly. I don't know. Every time Alex brings up her father, he always tenses up." I said. "That could be it. Maybe he doesn't like the fact he isn't the oldest anymore." He said. "Could be. But this is vacation so I'm not going to worry about anything." I said. "Oh. Where is Alex?" Harry asked. "She didn't want to come. She said she wanted to stay with her father." I said. "Wait Luke isn't her father?" Harry asked. I shook my head. "I thought she was yours." He said. "Shes mine. But not Luke's. I was fifteen. Went to a party. Got drunk. Had sex. Got pregnant. Gave the baby up for adoption." I said. "Oh wow." He said.
I could hear my mum all the way from where we were sitting. About me, about Alex and her dad. Alex isn't my sister. She isn't. Shes my step sister. She will never be my sister. I loved my family until she came into the picture. She ruined everything. But we are on vacation, so I'm not going think about her.
"Here we are." I said showing everyone the house. There were a lot of people with us, so we rented a huge mansion. Ashton and Liz ran inside. Michael and Calum ran inside too.
When we got inside, we picked our rooms. Liz got a room with pink walls, and a balcony. Ashton got a room with blue walls and a balcony. The guys got rooms with plain walls. And Skylar and I got the room with black walls, it's own bathroom, a balcony and a king sized bed. Of course. "This is beautiful." She said walking out on the balcony. I followed her. "What's wrong?" I asked wrapping my arms around her waist. "I don't know. Ashton isn't himself." She said. "What if he's getting bullied. Or if something happened at school. Or-" "hey. Shh. It's alright. We are on vacation now." I said, she nodded and put her head in my chest. "What do you think about moving here?" She asked. "Get away from everything. I mean Australia is where we all grew up, but maybe move here and live a normal life here. With out Tate. Without Sabrina." She said. "I think it's a good idea." I replied. She hugged me tightly and walked inside.
Everyone got called down for a. "Family meeting." We all walked down stairs into the living room. "Okay. We have something to discuss." Luke said. "So, we were talking, and how would you all feel about moving here?" Skylar asked. "Really!" Liz asked. "Really." Luke said. "I like that idea." Ashton said. "Me too!" Liz yelled. "Are we all in?" Luke asked. "What about Alex?" I asked. "She has her own father. She has her own family. She doesn't need me." Skylar said. Wow. "Niall, of course you guys don't have to live with us. But if you want of course you can." Skylar said. "I'll have to talk it over with the guys, but I like the idea of living here." Niall said. "Okay, now that we all agree, how about we go shopping!?" Skylar said jumping up. Liz shot up.
"Liz how about this?" I asked walking out in a short pink dress. "Wow mum. Dad would like that." She said. I laughed. "Wow sky." Ashton said. I laughed.
