"Luke it will hurt," Lexi whined.
"I'm sorry but you have to," Luke said. Lexi was going to get braces. Luke woke her up at 6 in the morning, so she was going to be cranky all day. He didn't want to be the one to take her, but Ashton was out with his little sister.
"But Luke," she whined.
"Let's go." They walked into the dentist.
She got rainbow braces. She went straight to bed when they got back on the bus.
"Luke!" She yelled from the couch.
"What?!" He yelled from the kitchen.
"My mouth hurts!" He couldn't help but chuckle.
"Well they just put braces on your teeth so yeah they're going to hurt." She just sat there and watched Netflix.
It was 9 in the morning so Calum and Mikey were still asleep. Calum woke up around 10. When he walked by Lexi put her foot out knowing he would fall. His eyes were still basically closed. He didn't care he just walked into the kitchen. She walked in the kitchen to get something to drink.
"Water for the first week Lexi," Luke said.
"One drink." She had a glass Starbucks in her hand from a gas station.
"No. The dentist said you only should drink water. And these Starbucks things are not good for you." He started reading the label.
"Since when do you care?"
"Since we got you." She stuck her tongue out at him and got a bottle of water.
"One drink?" She asked him again. She wouldn't stop asking until he said yes.
"One." She happily got up and went to the fridge. She took a big drink which pretty much was the whole thing. "Alexxs!" He exclaimed.
"I said one drink."
"You didn't say how big." Calum chuckled and Lexi smiled. Mikey woke up and walked in the kitchen.
"Ooh Starbucks," he said and drank the rest of what was in it.
"That was mine!" Lexi said.
"You're not even supposed to drink coffee," Mikey said.
"Yeah when Ash is here."
"And with your braces," Calum said. Then Micey smiled. He looked in the cabinet and found some microwave popcorn.
He popped a big bowl and sat right in front of Lexi with it.
"Popcorn," Michael said teasing her. She caught Luke not looking and put a piece in her mouth, even though her mouth was hurting.
"Did you just eat a piece of popcorn?" Luke said looking up from his phone.
"No." She said.
"It's going to get stuck in your braces." Calum said.
"No it won't." She just then notice that it was stuck in her braces.
"Stuck isn't it?" Luke asked cause she was pulling at her braces.
"Yeah." Luke walked over to her.
"Open," he said. He got the piece of popcorn out.
"I'm bored," Lexi whined, watching Mikey eat the popcorn.
"Do something," Calum said.
"Mickey stop!" Lexi joked.
"Sorry," he said. Lexi walked in the living room.
"Stop leaving your socks on the couch!" She walked into the kitchen. "I hate being the only girl," she said throwing his socks at him.
"Why?" Calum asked.
"Guys are gross. No offense but really, do you have to leave your dirty clothes everywhere?" They all nodded.
"Well having a girl isn't as easy as you think," Mikey said.
"Oh really. How?" She asked.
"One you guys have to use a lot of toilet paper. Two-"
"I'm scared to hear the next," Lexi said.
"Two I can't go around in my boxers," Luke said.
"Mickey does," Lexi said. They all looked at Mikey, who was only in his boxers.
"Three bras look weird," Calum said.
"Okay that one didn't make sense and why would you be looking at my bras?" Lexi said. She sat on the counter top.
"I do your laundry," Calum said.
"I'm probably going to start doing my own laundry. Anyway......." She said.
"You guys always complain about your body," Mikey said.
"I don't," Lexi said.
"Yeah Lexi is probably the only girl I know that doesn't complain about being fat. But Ashton is always getting on to you about being tiny," Luke said.
"I can't help it."
"You could eat," Calum suggested.
"Doesn't look like it," Calum said. She walked to Luke and pulled up his shirt.
"Really?!" She said. Calum's phone started ringing.
Calum: Having fun?
Ashton: Yeah Lauren is spending the night
Ashton: What's Lexi doing?
Calum: Sitting here
Ashton: Let me talk to her
Ashton: Hey baby girl whatcha doing?
Lexi: Sitting here
Ashton: Does your mouth hurt?
Lexi: A little
Ashton: Did Mickey already tease you with popcorn?
Ashton: I have to go I'll be home in a little bit ok?
Ashton: Love you
Lexi: Love you too bye
Ashton: Bye baby girl
Ashton and his little sister walked on the bus stop after. Lexi was asleep on the couch. Ashton woke her up. She whined at first but woke up pretty easily.
Lauren was talking to the boys about school which reminded Ashton about Lexi going to school.
"Let me see your braces," he said. She smiled. "They're pretty."
"They hurt," she said getting in his lap.
"Do you want to meet my sister?"
"How old is she?"
"Okay I will." Ashton chuckled and they went in the kitchen.
"Lauren," Ashton said.
"This is Lexi. Lexi this is Lauren."
Lauren smiled. "Ash talks about you all the time." Lexi smiled.
"You guys go in the living room. We need to talk," Ashton said. They went in the living room.
"What is it?" Calum asked Ashton.
"Well you know how I talked to my mom today?" They nodded. "I told her about Lexi and she said I can't take care of her. She it would be good if she took her.
"She can't do that," Luke said.
"She could," Ashton said.
"Yeah, if you have a kid and you're on tour your closest relative is allowed to take your kid," Calum said.
"But Lexi isn't legally our kid," Luke said.
"She would have to go back to foster care." Ashton said. They looked at each other.
"Whatcha guys talking about?" Lauren asked as she went to the fridge to get a bottle of water.
"Nothing." Ashton said. "Where's Lexi?"
"She's watching Netflix. Could you pop popcorn?" Lauren asked. Lexi walked in there.
"Lexi can't have popcorn." Ashton said. Lexi hugged him.
"Please Ash?" She said giving him the puppy dog eyes. Lauren gave him the puppy dog eyes too.
"No." He said.
"Pwease." Lexi said all cute like.
"Fine. If you get it stuck in your braces don't come crying to me." Ashton aid and got the popcorn. Lexi and Lauren high fived and walked back in the living room. Ashton put the popcorn in a bowl and sat on the couch with the girls. They each put their head on his shoulders and watched a movie.
My friend recently got braces so that's where the idea came from. I don't really know how the whole braces things work but I know they hurt.
