"Can we bake a cake though?" Lexi asked. Ashton nodded. Mikey put his phone in his pocket and helped Ash get the ingredients out.
"Here love, you want to stir it?" Ashton asked her once all the ingredients were in the bowl. She nodded, he helped her since she couldn't hold the bowl and stir at the same time.
Luke and Calum walked downstairs, Mikey smirked when he saw Luke's neck. There was at least 5 hickeys.
"Whatcha guys doing?" Luke asked walking to Ashton and Lexi.
"We're making the kind of cake Lexi wanted," Ashton said, causing both Luke and Calum to both laugh.
"Can I help?" Lexi nodded and let go of the whisk thing. He smiled and started stirring it. Ashton got a little spoon and took a spoonful of the batter and ate it.
"What are you doing?" Lexi asked him.
"Every time we bake a cake, Ash makes everybody try the batter before we bake it," Calum explained.
"Here try it," Ash said reaching her the spoon. She looked at him with disgust.
"You just used that spoon," she said.
"Well I'm sorry," Ash said. Luke took the spoon and ate some of the batter.
"It tastes fine, now Ash if she doesn't want to take a bite then don't make her," Luke said.
After the cake was done and decorated, everybody sat in the living room and watched a movie, Findin Nemo to be exact.
"Ash," Calum whispered nudging him a little. Ashton looked up from the movie at to his direction.
"What?" He whispered back.
"Look at Lexi." Ashton looked down at Lexi. She had ate half of her piece of cake and was asleep with her head on his side. He smiled and got the plate from her lap and put it in the floor. He put her in his lap, not waking her up, and played with her long black hair.
"Ash there's a bruise on her arm," Luke said pointing to her arm.
"Luke she was abused, she still has bruises," he said grabbing a blanket and covering him and her up.
"Go ahead and take her to bed," Calum said. Ashton carried her upstairs and to his room. He layed on the bed with her and fell asleep.
Of course, Lexi was awoken by a nightmare. It was a little bit worse than the one the night before. When Ash tried comforting her, she flinched.
"D-don't hurt m-me! I-I'm sorry!" She cried scooting away from him. Calum and Luke both ran into the room.
"Ash what's wrong?" Luke asked seeing the terrified child.
"I don't know she just like flipped!" He exclaimed. He tried one more time to comfort her, but she scooted away, falling off of his bed.
"Love, are you okay?" Calum asked her picking her up. She quickly nuzzled her face in his neck and wrapped her arms around his neck.
"She's scared of everybody but Cal, why?" Luke said as Calum comforted her.
"It was a bad dream, Calum take her in your room," Ashton said. Calum did as told and layed with her.
