Ashton was taking Lauren home. "Hey Ash got you in a school," Calum said to Lexi. She whined.
"What's wrong?" Luke asked her.
"I hate school," she whined.
"Didn't we all," Luke said. Ashton walked in and sat on the couch.
"Lexi you need to gain some weight," Ashton said as he picked her up.
"I try," she said.
"You could, you know, not starve yourself," Michael said.
"You sure?" Ashton asked her.
"We have to go shopping in a few days," Ashton said.
"Could Maddie take me?" Everyone looked at her weird.
"Why can't we?" Michael asked her.
"Because it's weird."
"Why is it weird?"
"I just don't want to go shopping with guys."
"But I like going down that aisle, and now I have a reason to," Michael said. Lexi slowly got off his lap.
"Mikey that was just wrong," Luke said.
"I still don't see why we can't take you shopping," Calum said.
"I just don't feel comfortable going shopping with 4 guys." Ashton nodded.
Everyone went to their beds while Lexi stayed on the couch. She went and took a shower. It was boring on the bus and everybody knew it.
"We're doing autographs tomorrow!" Luke yelled to everybody. All the boys went to the living room to hang out.
"How come I never get to go to your concerts?" Lexi asked Ashton, looking up with her big, blue eyes.
"Well cause we can't let you go by yourself," Ash explained to the small child.
"Could I at least go backstage?"
"I'll have to think about it," Ashton said.
"It's a yes," Lexi said. She climbed up in his lap. Luke's phone started ringing. He looked at it and went in the kitchen.
"Hey Ash, you better come get this," Luke said. Ashton moved Lexi off his lap and onto Calum's. He went in the kitchen with Luke.
After a few minutes, Ashton and Luke came back in. "Who was it?" Calum asked.
"Nobody," Ashton said.
When Lexi went to bed all the boys went to the kitchen to talk. "Really who was on the phone?" Michael asked.
"It was the foster place, they said Lexi had to go back," Luke said.
"They can't just take her can they?" Michael said.
"We don't have custody. Ashton is still working on it."Luke said.
"When is she leaving?" Calum asked.
"They didn't tell us," Luke said. Lexi walked in and climbed in Ashton's lap.
"What's wrong?" He asked her.
"I can't sleep," she said grabbing his phone. He quickly took it away from her.
"Come on." He took her to his bed. She fell asleep almost instantly. I guess she wants to sleep with us. Ashton thought. The boys went to sleep.
They were going to stay in a hotel for awhile. When they got there, Lexi was so happy.
"I get my own bed!" She said jumping on the full size bed.
"That's no fair because you're a little ball when you sleep," Calum said jumping on the bed.
"Yeah but I've been sleeping on a couch for 2 months."
"I call the bed!" Mikey jumped making Lexi fly through the air. "Lexi are you okay?!" He asked as they all laughed. She nodded and went to Ashton. He picked her up.
"Are you tired?" Luke asked her, she nodded and layed her head on his shoulder. Calum and Mikey got off the bed. Ashton put her on the bed and layed with her. She fell asleep shortly after.
"Who knew parenting could be so hard?!" Luke exclaimed, throwing himself down on the other bed.
"If I go out with a girl, could you guys watch her till tomorrow?" Ashton asked. They all nodded. Ashton slowly got off the bed and went to the bathroom. He got out and went back in the bedroom. "I'll be back later, or tomorrow it's hard telling."
"Don't come here drunk please, Lexi hates that," Mikey said. Ashton nodded and left. The boys went to sleep. Luke on the other bed, Mikey on the couch, and Calum with Lexi.
In the middle of the night, Lexi woke up crying her eyes out. Calum up to it first.
"Love did you have a nightmare?" Calum asked her. She nodded and climbed in his lap. "Did you take your medicine?" She shook her head.
Calum got up, with Lexi in his arms, and woke up Luke. "Luke," Calum said shaking him. Luke opened his eyes. "Did you give Lexi her medicine?" Luke shook his head. "She had a nightmare." Luke stood up. He looked at Lexi that was in Calum's arms.
"Love, you want to cuddle with me?" Luke said. She shook her head and tightened her grip on Calum. "Where's her medicine?" Luke whispered to Calum.
"I don't know, you was supposed to give it to her yesterday." Luke looked around the room.
"Dammit, I can't find it. Can't we like go to the store and buy another bottle?"
"No, the doctor prescribed that to her." Luke looked to Mikey.
"Did Mike even put it in her bag?"
"I don't know, wake him up." Luke woke him up.
"Do you know where Lexi's medicine is?" Mikey shook his head. "She's crying her heart out because of a nightmare." He looked over at Calum who was trying to calm her down.
Mikey got up and went to her. He took her into his arms. He put his mouth near her neck and shushed her. "That was just a dream, were here now. Nick will never hurt you again," he whispered in her ear.
Calum was jealous that Mikey was better with her than he was. Luke searched her bag for the medicine and finally found it. He ran to the kitchen and got a glass of water. He gave it to Calum.
"Here give this to her," Calum said reaching it to Mikey. He grabbed the pill from him.
"Here," Mikey said. She sat up and took the pill. She took a drink of water and put her head back on Mikey's chest, tears still streaming down her face. "Let's go back to bed, that sound okay?" She nodded. Mikey layed on the bed with her. She put her head on his chest and they both went back to sleep almost instantly.
"What do you think her nightmare was about?" Calum whispered to Luke.
"Probably foster care," Calum said, he layed back in his bed. Luke went over to Lexi and kissed her head. He got on one knee and played with her hair. "It's okay, he can't hurt you anymore," Luke whispered. He got up and went back to the couch.
