After all the excitement of Kiera and Harry's wedding had died down we decided to start on the Christmas dinner. We had decided that me, Louis and Natalie would cook the dinner while the rest of the house hold tidied up from this morning.
Me and Natalie entered the kitchen, I walked over to the sink and washed my hands followed by Natalie. Louis appeared into the kitchen and waltzed over to the oven and switched it on. "Right, Lex. I'm just popping upstairs to go to the toilet, alright?" I looked at him and raised my eyebrow slightly, "Okay, but I swear to god if you leave us to cook this dinner you wont be having any kids anytime soon. Understand?" He nodded and ascended up the stairs.
I turned and faced Natalie, "You know he's not coming back, right?" She asked. I nodded and went into the freezer to take out all the veg. Natalie was on the opposite side of the kitchen preparing and seasoning particular meats, i helped fit all of the meats in the oven because it was a squeeze. We had to start cooking the meat earlier because it takes a long time and everything else doesn't. After a few hours of doing other bits, the meat was practically done, so I boiled some water in a pot and added the veg and let it cook whilst i checked the meat and got on with other things.
A few hours later the dinner was done so I called Kiera in and asked her to set the table and put Christmas crackers in every ones place, she then returned and helped me and Natalie bring dishes in. We set them on the table. "OI BIATCHES DINNER IS READY!" I bellowed through the house and almost immediately everyone emerged into the dining room.
"Mmm this smells lush Lex!" Zayn said while sitting down and kissing my cheek. "I know! Its because me and Natalie cooked it." Louis looked up and said "HEY! I helped!" I scoffed and said, "Louis, you turned the cooker on and went to the 'toilet'" I used air quotes on the word toilet. "I still helped" He mumbled.
We all laughed and pulled crackers with each other. Harry got excited because this was the only time he could tell cheesy jokes without getting lectured about it. "What do you call a penguin in a desert?" He asked with a massive cheesy grin on his face, "What?" we all asked together. "Lost" he replied proper cracking up and we all just tutted, and dug into our dinners. Niall scoffed it down and rushed into the kitchen for seconds... and thirds. "Have we got more wine?" Kiera asked. "Um I'll go check now, white or red?" she shrugged, i got up to go to the kitchen and managed to trip over my foot on the way. I turned around to see them sniggering, i rushed to the kitchen to save myself from the embarrassment. I opened the fridge and there was a lot of wine, so i brought 2 of each,2 red and 2 white.
Dinner finished quite quickly so because me and Nat cooked, We made the rest wash up and clear up. "Urgh really?!" Louis moaned. "Yes Lou.." "Urgh!" He slumped into the kitchen with plates and glasses in his hands. Me and Nat sat on the sofa knackered and finished our wine. Kiera sat next to me and guzzled the last bit of drink in her glass. I looked at her and back to the kitchen. She innocently said, "I laid the table, so I'm sitting here and being lazy, ok?" I laughed and nodded at her because i don't think that was wine in her glass. Grabbing her glass, i smelt it and said, "Vodka? You put that in there, no wonder you look more tipsy than anyone else." "Well... its Christmas!" Around half hour later the rest joined us and we were so full we couldn't move so we just, didn't.
That was probably the best Christmas dinner i have ever had! We were scattered across the sofas groaning because we were so full. "Should we watch a film?" Niall suggested. "No, we always watch films, should we play a game?" Lex suggested. We all nodded and Kiera said "How about monopoly?" "Yeah okay" We all agreed and Kiera got up to get the board game. When she returned we set it up and started to play.
After 2 hours we decided to stop playing because we got bored and it was getting late so we just decided to chill and watch TV. I looked around the room and Kiera and Harry were discussing wedding things. "Hey Harry, who's your best man?" I asked, trying to start conversation. He looked at me and scratched the back of his neck, "I, err, umm I dunno mate" He replied. "Well, you better pick soon Hazz." Louis said. "Well, it won't be you anyway Lou because your giving me away. Remember?" Kiera said. "Yeah I know, just reminding him that's all" He replied slightly disappointed knowing he couldn't be best man. "Maid of honour?" Lex asked Kiera. Ki looked at Lexii and said "Who'd ya think?" "Me?" "No its Mable next door. Obviously its you." Smiling she sat up and got all fidgety trying to get comfy again.
"I'm bored and its Christmas so i shouldn't be!" El moaned. Laughing, the door bell went and we looked at each other a bit lost at who would be here at Christmas. Harry pulled himself off the sofa and opened the front room door.
I looked at the front door and could see two figures. Slowly walking up to it, I pulled down the door handle and swung it open to reveal Jo and Troy, Lou and Ki's mum and dad. My jaw dropped and a small amount of anger built up inside of me. Lex came out the front room door to see if i was ok because I'd been out here for a while, she obviously noticed them and she stopped in her footsteps to look at my facial expression too. All i could see was that Lexii's facial expression wasn't happy.
"What the fuck do you think your doing here!?" Lex said, she was close to shouting. Before they could answer back she cut them off with, "Your not coming in, everyone in this house hates you, do you know that?" She shouted. "Oh honey, this is my house, so i will come in if i please alright?" This is when i butted in. "Umm, Jo. If I remember correctly you gave the house to Kiera and Louis? and they really detest you right now as does everyone else here." Jo scoffed and barged in past me and Lex. "Who's that at the door bab-" Kiera started to say whilst poking her head around the front room door. She saw her parents in the hallway and walked towards them slowly with folded arms, I could see the anger building up inside her. "LOU!!" she bellowed not taking her eyes off of her mum. Lou ran to the door and done the exact same as Ki. "Can you turn around, walk out the door to OUR house and never come back." Lou sassily said whilst pointing to the door. "Oh Louis honey, i haven't seen you in such a long time." Jo said whilst putting her arms out to hug Lou. He backed away and by this time Troy had come in the house to. Jo looked at me, Lex, Ki and Lou and asked why we're all so angry at them, in no time at all Kiera opened her mouth and let it all out. "You disagree with Harry, you don't want me to marry him, you weren't going to come to it because of Harry, you left me and Lou, YOUVE BEEN SHIT PARENTS! And, that thing that is my aunt Sally told me the other day that you only wanted Louis. I can see that now because when you seen me nothing happened, but as soon as you saw Lou, arms out, 'Honey i haven't seen you in such a long time' crap." Ki yelled whilst getting closer to them and acting like her mum when she was replicating her mother. By this time the rest of the guys had come here to see what was going on and were all backing Ki and Lou up with everything. "I don't care what you think. May as well say it, no we didn't want you, we were only meant to have Lou, I'm glad you've found that out because now I can stop acting like i did want you. And no i don't like.. this." Jo looked me up and down with a disgusted face. "Know what, I'm glad you didn't want me, because Id never want parents like you, but sadly I do and i don't want anything to do with you two anymore." Jo rolled her eyes and huffed like she was bored listening. "Leave now please." I said to them. "No!" She protested. "GET OUT OF THEIR HOUSE JO!" Lex shouted whilst pointing to the door and walking next to Kiera. In defeat, she turned around and walked out the door. Kiera ran to the door and shouted behind them, "YOU LEAVING HAS BEEN THE BEST THING, I LOVE HARRY MORE THAN YOU, YOUR A HEARTLESS BITCH!" Jo shrugged on her way to her car, started the engine and drove off. I walked up to Kiera and brung her in to the house, she broke down in to tears and just cried into my shirt.
I was so angry! "HOW DARE THEY COME HERE! WITH SUITCASES AS WELL! DID THEY THINK I WAS GOING TO LET THEM STAY HERE?! AFTER ALL THEY HAVE DONE?" I ranted. Harry came up behind me and grabbed my arms pulling them in front of me and around my waist, so his arms were around me to. He said whilst nuzzling in to my neck, "Babe calm down." I broke out of his comfort and Suddenly yelled, "NO HARRY I WONT CALM DOWN!" He stood back and looked a bit hurt and shocked, he didn't like seeing me like this anyway. I ran my fingers through my hair and said "I'm sorry baby, I'm just so pissed off at the moment. I didn't mean to shout at you" He nodded and came back over to me, now letting him return to his previous hug.
Everyone was trying to calm me down but it wasn't working so I decided to go upstairs for a lie down. Being by myself didn't calm me down either it just made me think things over and get angrier. Around 10 minutes later, Harry knocked on the door and slowly opened it looking at me. "Is it ok to come in?" I nodded and he entered, closed the door and sat in front of me on the bed. "Babe its ok, you don't have to worry about them or even think about them, their not coming back. Look at all the shite they got today, i don't think they'd like that again would they?" I nodded in agreement and just talking to harry calmed me down. "I know, it just annoys me that SHE cant see what she's done. I'm finished with them totally, i never want to see them again and i don't think Lou would debate against that either, even if they only want Lou, I don't think their going to get that again." He nodded and took my hands into his. I looked at him and he took me downstairs. When we got downstairs and was about to go into the front room, Harry said to me that Lex and Lou were pretty pissed still. You may be thinking why is Lex this pissed? Thing is, if anything that annoys me or makes me angry usually pushes her buttons to because its me, I'm her best friend, she'd do anything because she cares and all of this is the same with her, i get like this with anything that makes her angry or annoyed, she's not fiery but when she wants to be, she can have a short fuse and wont hold back on saying anything. I nodded and entered the room with everyone turning around to see me, Lou and Lex were ranting to each other about the same subject and when they noticed me they stopped. "Look guys, I just want to forget about it okay? This Christmas has been quite eventful. Some good and some bad. But lets just chill now. I'm not having anything to do with them." I said looking at the floor. Everyone nodded and we just put on some Christmas films and chilled out again. I could see Lex and Lou had calmed down but weren't still totally calm, they would do soon but i know their only like this because they care.
I came and set next to Lex and poked her in the ribs. She jerked at the poke and mouthed 'what'. I whispered in her ear, "I need to talk to you." "Now?" I nodded and whispered back, "Come up to my room now then." I again nodded and we both left. "Where are you going?" Liam questioned. "None of your business." We both ran upstairs and entered her room closing the door behind me. "So what's wrong brother?" I sat on the bed and she joined me. "Its stupid but, I really like Ash, a lot." She laughed a bit and lent in closer, cocking her eyebrow as to say 'and...?'. "Well, I'm obviously not going to yet but do you think maybe later on I should maybe propose?" She lent back a bit shocked but happy I think. "Oh my god. You must really like her. Thinking of proposing already, wow." "Good thing or bad?" "I think its good you feel this good about your relationship but proposing this early on... maybe not, but then again if you think you'll last then maybe you could consider it." I nodded and pouted whilst thinking. "If i do I'm not going to do it yet because i think its to early on but i defiantly want to at some point." She smiled and went to get of her bed but I pulled her back down. "So... how's things going with Malik?" she laughed a bit again and replied with, "Good and why do you ask?" "Well I know how long you fancied him for and i am really happy you go out cause he's our mate and he's a good guy. Thing is... you two are at it quite a lot and its not very appealing to my senses, so if you do it then quite down please?" She was shocked and uncomfortable at the fact i mentioned it and to be frank, i was uncomfortable asking it but i needed to. "Uh yeah I'll err, we'll try ok. Not promising though." We both laughed and as we got up to leave, she said to me. "We should go out, just me and you for a day or something because I don't really see you or spend a great deal of time together anymore." Smiling, i agreed and opened the door for her.
