"Why didn't you tell us?" Calum asked Lexi, glancing in the backseat. She looked down at her hands.
He pulled into the driveway. She got out and ran inside. Mikey and Calum looked at each other. "Did yours scar?" Calum asked Mikey. He nodded. They got out of the car and went inside. Ash was at the door. As soon as Lexi walked in he hugged her.
"Baby girl don't ever cut your self again," he said picking her up and sitting her down on the counter top. He kissed her forehead. "I love you." She jumped down and ran to her room. Ashton walked to her door. "Lexi are you okay?"
"I hate this place!" She screamed, sobbing. All the boys went to her door.
"Love, it's okay," Calum said.
"No it's not! When you're in foster care and you're suicidal they send you away!"
"Lexi come talk to one of us," Luke said.
"No! I want my brother!"
"Lexi I can set up a visitation with him," Ashton said.
"No you can't!"
"Because he's dead! His foster dad killed him! Mikey you should know you was!" The boys looked at each other.
"Lexi come on, talk to me," Mikey said. It got silent.
"Ash go talk to her, she's closest to you," Luke said. He nodded and walked in the room. She was on her bed, knees to her chest, face in her knees.
"Hey," Ash said rubbing circles on her back.
"Ash-" she stopped and looked at him.
"What love?" He asked.
"Why can't I kill myself?" Tears stung his eyes.
"Would you be sad if I killed myself?" She nodded. "It's different, you're my....." he paused. "You're my daughter." She had a little smile. She quickly went in his arms. He started to stroked her hair.
"Hey shhh, let it out." He rocked her. Calum stood at the door. Is she okay? Calum mouthed. Ash looked down at her, she was half asleep. He nodded. He rocked her until she was asleep. He layed her on the bed, covered her up. He moved her hair out of her face, he kissed her head. "I love you Alexxs Nicole......." He paused. "Irwin."
He walked downstairs. Calum was sitting at the table. "Is she okay?" He asked. Ash nodded.
"Are you okay?" Mikey asked him.
"No! My daughter just told me she wanted to kill herself!" Ashton said almost yelling.
"Don't you think we're worried too?!" Calum said standing up. "Maybe if you payed more attention she'd be happier!" Ashton shoved Calum a little.
"If it wasn't for me she'd probably be being beat!"
"Mikey was the one that wanted her and then you had to have everything for yourself!" Ashton pushed him again.
"Could you 2 not fight!" Mikey yelled.
"I'm her father Calum! I do pay attention to her!" He stormed out of the house. Calum went to his room. Mikey and Luke looked at each other. It was silent.
"I'm going to go check on Lexi," Luke said. He went to her room. She was still asleep. He kissed her head. She whined.
"Hey baby girl, I'm just checking on you," he said, kissing her forehead softly. He left the room and went to his. After the long day, everybody decided to go to bed.
