Although being desperate enough to spend a summer babysitting a bunch of teenagers wasn't where Taylor imagined she'd be at twenty-six, she was kind of excited for what the next two months would hold. She was getting the chance to spend the summer with her best friend in a beach side mansion on the coast of California. It didn't beat writing for the New York Times, but she would get there eventually. Besides, how hard could watching a few teenagers be? It wasn't like they needed to be cared for like babies did. She could probably order them pizzas and turn on a movie and they'd be fine.

Taylor shuffled around her hotel room, making sure that all of her belongings were packed away. She had only spent one night in the room after arriving in California the night before, but from the looks of all of the clothes spewed across the floor, it could have been her permanent residence. Although she wasn't the type to put too much hype into her appearance, Taylor knew how important a first impression was. She had tried on over ten different outfits this morning but ended up going with the original casual dress that she had first tried on. As she glanced at the clock, she noticed that she was running late. She was supposed to be outside for the taxi at 9:00 and it was nearing 9:10. They had to pick up Madison on the way and then the ride to the house would be another hour or so, so Taylor knew that she had to hurry up. She grabbed her bags and awkwardly made her way out of the hotel, spotting her taxi driver impatiently waiting outside.

"I'm so sorry," Taylor said, dumping her bags into the trunk. I slept in la-" she began, before the older man cut her off. "Yeah, well we better go. I've gotta pick someone up right after you and I can't be late." Taylor got the message and quickly slid into the passenger's seat, pulling her phone out and texting Madison, "On our way! We'll be there in 30 <3". As she browsed through her phone, she remembered the email that Mrs. Kennedy had sent her for herself and Mrs. White. She had looked over it briefly yesterday when she had first received it but figured that now was a good time to actually read it fully.


Taylor,

Thank you for agreeing to take care of our children this summer. We are confident that everything will run smoothly, but we thought it would be appropriate to give you a little background information on the children. I'll start with my four first:

Jason is our oldest child and only son. He's an amazing young man and should be nothing but a help to you girls. Michael and I hope that he'll spend time with friends this summer, enjoying his free time. He's headed to law school in the fall so we're happy that you will be there to care for the younger kids so that he can relax.

Lyla is our second child and oldest daughter at eighteen. She's a very bright girl but has gotten caught up in her social life which is beginning to lead her down a bad path. Last week she was arrested for driving while intoxicated and although she is no longer legally in trouble for it, Michael and I think it is important that she learns the first time how dangerous her behaviors are becoming. She is not allowed to drive any of the cars and she must be home by dark every night unless she's accompanied by you or Taylor. If she's out with friends, please make sure you know where she is at all times. She's a wonderful girl and we think that she just needs a little bit of guidance this summer to prepare her for starting a new life at UCLA in the fall.

Our third daughter is Sarah, who is fifteen. She's the quietest of the four and definitely should not be a problem for you. She's dating Alexander, William and Tricia's youngest son, and although they both have good heads on their shoulder, we don't want them to do anything that they would regret so if you could keep an eye on them when they're together, it would be appreciated. We are encouraging Sarah to get out of the house more and hang out with people besides her siblings.

Ella is our baby who recently turned thirteen. She's a bubbly child and although she is eager to grow up, we know that she will enjoy having you and Madison there to play with her. She is very energetic but if she ever overwhelms you, she loves watching movies and swimming. She has always been a picky eater and we're trying to introduce new foods to her diet, so please don't feel like you need to make separate meals for her. Because she's the youngest, she will probably demand the most of your attention but we hope that she won't be too much trouble for you.

William and Tricia wrote this up and asked me to include it for you in reference to their child:

"Alexandra and Jack are our twenty-two year old twins. Alexandra is going through some emotional troubles right now and Jack opted to spend the summer with the family rather than at our year-round home. They're both good kids and will probably spend most of their time out of the house with their friends. Jack knows not to bring any alcohol around the younger children so that shouldn't be a problem. William is the middle child and is a great son. He's a mini-version of Jack with a big heart. Alexander is our fourth child. He's different than his older brothers and has taken an interest in music. If it gets too loud, please don't hesitate to ask him to play in the garage. He has a little relationship with Sarah Kennedy. We don't think it's too serious though, so there shouldn't be anything to worry about there".

I've sent you all of the information regarding our hotel accommodations, emergency contacts and the children's doctor's and insurance information and all of the children's cellphone numbers. Jason, Alexandra and Alexander have their own cars and Lyla's car will be there for your use. We've scheduled for your paycheck to be automatically deposited into your bank accounts weekly and in addition to that, we will also be depositing money for you to use for food and other necessities for the kids.

Please text Jason or Alexandra when you're on your way so they know to buzz you in when you get to the gate.

Again, Michael, William, Tricia and I cannot thank you enough for your help this summer. We hope that you and the children have a memorable summer.

See you on September 2nd!
Kathryn Kennedy


Taylor was able to read the email a few times through before they arrived to pick up Madison and as she waited for her friend to get into the taxi, she decided to text Jason and Alexandra to let them know that they were on their way.

To: Jason Kennedy, Alexandra White
Hi guys! It's Taylor Stone. Your parents asked me to text you to let you know that Madison and I are on our way. We should be there in an hour or so :)!

She sent the text and slipped the phone back into her pocket as she waved to Madison who was approaching the car. "Excited?" she asked with a smile once her friend got into the car. She knew that Madison wasn't exactly keen on children but the money was too good to resist for both of them.

Although Madison was a New York native, she had spent the past few weeks in Los Angeles at her older cousin's apartment. They had always been close growing up and since Madison was an only child, he was like an older brother to her. After her internship at a record label in New York fell through and she agreed to babysit with Taylor for the summer, it made sense to spend the week before it with her cousin since she would need to go to California anyway.

As the time for Taylor to pick her up approached, Madison regretted agreeing to go even more than she had before. Taylor had forwarded her an email the day before that their employer sent her discussing the children that they would be watching. The description of the kids seemed less than appetizing. While Kathryn tried to portray them as easy to handle with a few quirks, it was apparent that some of them were trouble. Lyla was "a bright girl" but was a drunk driver, Sarah and Alexander were fifteen but were dating and were going to be living together, Ella "shouldn't be too much trouble", Alexandra was going through "emotional trouble", Jack needed to be warned not to give the younger kids alcohol, and apparently, William was a "mini version" of him. That sounded promising. Not. The pay that they would be receiving for the two months was more than double than Madison could make in any other summer job she had ever taken on, though, so it was impossible for her to back out now.

After saying goodbye to her cousin, Madison brought her bags outside and waited for nearly fifteen minutes for Taylor to show up. She was sitting shotgun in a dingy cab driven by an equally raggedy looking driver. It didn't seem like a good start but Taylor appeared to be excited and Madison couldn't squash her good mood, at least without something actually going bad. She placed her bags in the car and took a seat in the empty back row.

"Excited?" Taylor asked her, with the normal hint of optimism apparent in her tone. Madison rolled her eyes but smiled. "I'm not sure if excited is the right word, but how bad could it be?" she responded, running a hand through her dark hair.

"Sure you could help with dinner," Jason said flashing his friend a large smile, "Every great man needs an assistant. How can I be expected to remember my own schedules?" He teased. He was thankful that she offered to help as Jason didn't expect much in the way of help form the others as they were all quite willing to ride on the coattails of the others. The White business would be in good hands if they left it to Alex instead of the screw up that was Jack.

Busy talking to Alex he missed Alexander trying to flee to his room with Sarah, but Jack, being the rodent he was, was quick to jump on it suggest his sister was going to be making out with his little brother who wasn't worth her time. Jason thought she was more in love with the idea of love then with the boy. Someone didn't love everything about someone, that is called being blind, love is knowing their faults but loving them despite their faults, not loving their faults to. One was being blind while the other was seeing the other person for who they were. Still his sister was young, so she would figure it out sooner or later.

Jack's comment was not appreciated, "If he thinks about second base, I will make sure he can never go to third base with anyone," Jason said dismissively, but his voice held an edge as he was more then willing to harm Alexander, even physically mutilate him, if it meant keeping his middle sister safe. Any of his other sisters, and he would already be moving to kick their door in and inform them that in this house they will always have the door open when together, but Sarah was not his other two sisters. He trusted her, but he didn't trust Alexander, so he would be going over there soon enough to inform them about his door policy.

"Are you blind or just illiterate," Jason said pointing at the note on the fridge, "Lyla isn't going anywhere until Madison and Taylor get here. She has to tell them where she wants to go, you are not getting her into any more trouble," he spoke as if Lyla wasn't even there, but it didn't matter, she wasn't going anywhere until the nannies got here. Then it was up to them to try and keep her in line while he did his best to help. He had to admit, he knew he wouldn't be able to just let them do the majority of the work, but a part of him was also glad that he didn't have to spend his entire summer looking after Lyla. She needed to grow up someday, and while he wasn't sure if it was this Summer or even in this decade, all he could do was try to keep her from doing something colossally stupid until then. He still could not believe she drank and drove. Jason had always assured his parents that she wouldn't do that. That she knew better then that. Looks like he was proven wrong. Again.

Jason opened his mouth to confront Jack on if he wanted to start all this already when Ella walked getting eggs. Having missed her scrapping off her Bagel, he was filled with a mixture of surprise and elation that she was finally eating. Young teen girls and never eating all their food or picking at it, he would never understand it.

"Sorry Ella," Jason said, "Lyla can't take you shopping, she isn't allowed to drive. Grounded again," he said deciding to leave the details on why she couldn't drive out of it. Lyla was her hero and while he thought that was a terrible decision, he wasn't about to pull down Lyla like that in front of Ella, "And they didn't say goodbye to me either, sorry... If you want, you can try to call them."

Will had come in just then saying hello to which Jason gave an absentminded wave in his direction busy with talking to Ella. He couldn't go dirt biking because he had to stick around the house today that and just lounging on the couch with Alex sounded right for the day.

"Good morning, Will!" She greeted her younger brother, flashing him a bright smile. Even she knew that she was way to enthusiatic in the morning, but oh well, a bit of cheer couldn't hurt anyone.

She had just put her now clean and dry dishes away when she felt her phone vibrate in her pocket. Pulling it out, she raised her eyebrows at the unknown number but soon understood.

'Hi guys! It's Taylor Stone. Your parents asked me to text you to let you know that Madison and I are on our way. We should be there in an hour or so :)!'

Alex quickly saved the number into her phone and replied back.

'Hi, this is Alexandra. Have a nice trip and I shall see you then, can't wait to meet you!'

Waiting for Jason to finish speaking to Ella, she announced the news that she knew they'd all love - note the sarcasm.

"Ok, guys, I just got a text from one of the babysitters. They'll be here in an hour!" Alexandra was genuinely excited to meet the two women, glad that her parents hadn't tasked Jason and her to watch over everyone.

She then skipped out of the kitchen, not caring to listen to them complain about the babysitters. Heading to her room to change from her workout outfit, she climbed the stairs. Passing Alexander's room, she smelt something funny and paused. Peeking in, what she saw made her face red with anger. Weed.

She barged in, her once happy mood gone.

"ALEXANDER! SARAH! WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU DOING?! THAT BETTER NOT BE WHAT I THINK IT IS!" She demanded, shouting the house down.

Taylor knew that Madison wasn't as enthusiastic about their summer plans, or really anything, as she was, so she was satisfied with the not so negative response that her friend gave her. "I'm sure it won't be bad at all," she began, turning as far as she could in her seat to look back at her friend. "The youngest one is already thirteen and by the time that I was that age, my mom would leave me home alone all of the time. I'm sure their parents just want us there to make sure they don't accidentally burn the house down, or something." It was true that Taylor's mother had trusted her to be responsible at a young age. Being an only child to a single mother meant that Taylor had to learn how to take care of herself in a lot of respects and she hoped that Ella Kennedy, although the youngest of four, would show some similar characteristics.

"Did you read the email I sent you? The two older brothers are twenty-two... not too young for some summer romance," she commented with a playful grin. Taylor wasn't seriously thinking about getting serious with any of the boys. For one, she hadn't even met them yet and secondly, she felt like even though they weren't her employers, it would still be a little bit inappropriate. However, she wasn't going to make that stop Madison for going for one of them. Madison was obviously not the caretaker-type but Taylor would rather have her there doing nothing, or being the bad cop when necessary, than to have to do it all alone.

The hour-long drive seemed to go quickly as Taylor and Madison caught up on what they had done over the past few weeks and what they expected the summer to entail. Before Taylor had too much time to worry about what could go wrong, the taxi cab stopped in front of a driveway blocked by a gated entrance. Taylor remembered that Mrs. Kennedy had specified that one of the children would need to buzz them in when they got to the gate. It was strange having such a fancy system just to get to the door, but Taylor figured that the extra security was necessary when you had such a nice home to guard. She had never used one before so it took her a second to figure out what to do, but after a moment she pushed down one of the buttons and spoke into the intercom, saying, "Hi... it's Taylor and Madison!", somewhat awkwardly.

The cab driver glanced around impatiently but Taylor couldn't even see the house from outside the gate, so there was no way that she was going to let him drop them off here and have them lug their bags all the way up the driveway. She decided that they would wait to be buzzed in and have him drive her up to the front of the house and she got back into the car as the gate slowly opened.

"So, here we go..." she said with a nervous smile as she turned back to Madison and the taxi began down the long driveway that led up to the house.

Jason raised an eyebrow at the eager William. He was glad that he seemed willing to step up and take Ella somewhere when no one else probably would, besides himself, but there was no way in hell he was letting his thirteen year old sister ride on the back of a dirt bike as they drove into town. Not a chance in hell. There were so many ways it could end badly, and he was certainly not going to risk his sister just because she wanted to go shopping with her older sister.

"Sorry Will, I don't want Ella riding on the back of the dirt bike in town," Jason said, and he did mean sorry. If Will had his license and was driving a car then he would have been more open to the idea, but he wasn't letting her on the back of a dirt bike in the middle of a town filled with much larger and heavier vehicles around them.

A part of him hoped that Lyla would have learned to pick her battles. Ignore him and then try to sneak around, let him win this one and then try to win the next smaller battle, but out right trying to say she would take Ella was not going to end well. Jason didn't think he had to do it this early, but if his sister really wanted to play that game. They would play that game. He would love to see how far she got once he pulled the battery from her car then removed the fuel filter for good measure. If they were going to the store, they were walking. If Jack dared step in, he would see what happens when the alternator was gone. Two quick bolts and a yank. His vehicle would run fine... for a few miles... then his car battery would die leaving him stranded until he could get someone to pick him up or a tow truck to come and get him and there was no way that Jason would tow him with his truck.

He turned on his heel to commence operation, 'Sister Lockdown', when near the door he heard a voice, a woman's voice coming in over the small intercom. He barely made out the name Madison, as the kitchen wasn't very close to the door, so his mind put two and two together. The nannies had arrived, good, that meant Lyla had to either convince them to let her go to spite him, or she had to sneak around which meant, in some way, that he had won.

Moving over to the intercom, he pressed down on the large red button, "Yea, hold on," Moving his hand over, he pressed down on it for a few seconds to make sure the gate got the command. It should have slid open by now.

When Taylor brought up getting into a romantic relationship with one of the older boys that were supposed to be living, Madison only rolled her eyes. "I hope you're joking. You know just as well as I do that they're going to be your typical trust fund assholes. They've probably never worked a day in their life and get to live off of mommy and daddy's money for the rest of their lives. Not my type of guy, Taylor," she said, shaking her head but allowing a small smile to escape. Madison hadn't had a real relationship in almost two years. She had broken up with her last boyfriend on mutual ground but since then, she just didn't see a point in investing herself in other people. Deep down, she did hope that she would find someone who was compatible for her but she wasn't counting on it happening any time soon, and certainly not this summer.

Although Madison was tired enough to want to spend their hour drive sleeping, Taylor kept her up with her normal energy, asking about what she had done with her cousin over the past week, what she thought the family's home would look like and discussing the email that Kathryn had sent her.

When they arrived at the home, Madison was no less than impressed. It was a huge and beautiful home that was set right on the beach. As the car drove through the gates, Madison guessed that it was probably one of the nicest homes she had ever seen. It made sense considering the amount of money that the owners were willing to spend on childcare for two months, plus their own expenses as they vacationed in Europe. With everything considered, the amount of money that they would shell out in these two months would probably account for a yearly salary of someone living on minimum wage.

As Taylor paid the cab driver, Madison pulled their bags from the trunk and they were left standing alone in front of their new home for the summer. Before she could give Taylor a 'what did we get ourselves into?' look, the door swung open to reveal a small, blonde girl. Madison guessed that it was either Sarah or Ella Kennedy, although she leaned towards Ella considering that she appeared to be closer to thirteen than fifteen. The little girl stared at them for a moment before announcing that she was going shopping. Madison knew that only one of the Kennedy girls was old enough to drive and she was banned from driving, but Madison figured that Taylor would take care of it. Besides, it didn't seem like the appropriate thing to talk about as their first conversation.

"I'm guessing that you're Ella?" she asked, grabbing her bags and taking a step inside the house towards the blonde. She hoped that one of the older children would appear and make things less awkward but she figured that Taylor would know what to say and do.

Sarah started talking to Ella then turned back to Will, asking if he wanted to hang out later. "Hang out with you? well I guess it could be worse" Will joked and he winked at her. Then Will turned to Lyla. "Hey baby, excited to be spending the whole summer with me? if you ever feel lonely, my room's right at the end of the hall." Will finished with a wink. He would have stayed and continued with the flirting, but his bike was calling him. He cleaned off his plate and juice and went into the garage that was connected with the house.

There she was, the only love he will ever have, besides Lyla of course. She was a 2011 Honda CRF450R, or Alice, since it had the coolest Alice in Wonderland art on it. He grabbed the clicker and tried to open the garage door, but nothing happened. He kept clicking it and realized that either the door or the clicker was broken. He opened the back of the clicker and saw that it was missing a battery. "These things still run on batteries? Lame."

Will walked back in, yelling "Hey where are the batteries?" To anyone in particular, he kept walking until he reached the front door. He saw Ella talking to two strangers. Two HOT strangers. Will quickly pushed Ella out of the way and greeted the two women, they couldn't be to much older than Jack and Alexandra. "Hello ladies, Whatever you're selling, I'm buying. Unless, of course, you want me instead." He winked at them. "Now what may i owe the pleasure?"

Will glanced down and saw the suitcases and a large smile came over his face, then he yelled back to the kitchen "The hot nannies are here!" He looked back at them. "Please come on in, my brother Jason will show you to your rooms, then later, I can show you to mine." He stepped out and grabbed their suitcases, lifting them easily and ushered them inside while looking at their butts.

Since Taylor had to pay the cab driver, it took her an extra few seconds to reach the front door and by then, it was already wide up. A young girl stood in the entryway, telling Madison how she and her sister "were going shopping". Taylor agreed with Madison's assumption that the girl was probably Ella, the youngest of the eight kids that were living there. She was a pretty little girl and reminded Taylor of her stepsister who was only a year younger than Ella was.

"Hi Ella!" Taylor exclaimed enthusiastically, crouching down a bit to get to the girl's eye level. "I'm Taylor and this is Madison," she said, signaling to her friend. "We're going to be spending the summer with you here. Would you mind waiting a little bit to go shopping until we get settled in?" She smiled sweetly at Ella, hoping that she had managed to balance the level of not being too old and demanding sounding with also not trying to sound like she was talking to a two-year-old.

Inside the home, Taylor heard a male voice echoing throughout the halls about batteries and before long, the voice was matched with a young male, probably in his mid-teen years. As Taylor tried to imagine the email in her brain, she figured that he was either William or Alexander White. She was sure that his Prince Charming act probably swooned girls his age, and although Taylor knew that Madison would probably get sick of him fast, she thought it was cute. He shouted something about "hot nannies" being there, making Taylor giggle as he led them farther into the house. So far, so good, she thought to herself as she tried to examine the space around her and watch the young boy and girl at the same time.

It seemed Ella was going to greet Taylor and Madison herself, so Jason let her as she might be able to get along with them better if he wasn't there introducing himself and ushering their attention elsewhere. Although, he was curious as to what they looked like too as he hoped his parents hadn't hired two older women as he didn't want to see them go through what Lyla would put them through. Whatever money they were promised wasn't enough.

Batteries? Jason paused not sure why he needed batteries. The controls didn't require them, but... what batteries? Jason frowned trying to recall where the utility drawer was as he opened various cabinets and drawers inside the kitchen. Grabbing onto a brass handle, he pulled the last and furthest away drawer tucked into the corner of the kitchen open and there they were. Numerous battery packs and other miscellaneous items. Which kind did William need though? Odds were it was either AA or D batteries. He opened his mouth to yell out to William to ask.

His mouth closed when William yelled again into the house that the 'Hot Nannies' were here so that crossed the 'older women' right off his list. Jason had to fight the small smile that almost spread across his face at how William had yelled that. He didn't lack for confidence, that was for sure. By here, he assumed inside the house which meant Ella had probably already seen them which was good enough for them. He needed to make introductions and get them Lyla's car keys before she did something stupid.

Sliding the drawer closed, Jason walked out of the kitchen and into the hallway where the others were pausing to give both 'hot nannies' a one over. One was darker haired, and while attractive, she didn't give off the vibe that she wanted to be here. The other seemed to be near the opposite, still very attractive 'hot nanny', but she seemed to by enjoying William's show which was nice of her.

He managed to catch the bit about his brother Jason. Honestly, he never thought they were that close, but seeing at how close their families were... he supposed William could call him his 'older brother' very loosely.

"Will, the batteries are in the bottom left kitchen drawer, if you need tools for whatever they should be in the garage or in the toolbox in the back of my truck, let me know if you need to get in as it is locked," Jason said. He wasn't sure why, but he felt he should answer Will's earlier question before saying hi to the nannies that and... he had spent a few thousand dollars on his tools and Will was probably the closest thing to a fellow car enthusiast he had in the house, so there was a little bit of pride there as well. He wanted to offer to help Will carry the luggage, but Will was trying to impress them, so he should probably let him keep going with that.

"Hi, nice to meet you two," Jason said stepping closer to them and extending his right hand, "I am Jason Kennedy, the others are upstairs."

It took a second for her to nod when one of the girls asked her if she was Ella before the other followed suit and greeted her gleefully. The girl, who introduced herself as Taylor, suggested that she wait to go shopping until later and although Ella wanted to take opportunity of Lyla having time to drive her, she was interested in the new people as well. It seemed like she wasn't the only one because as soon as Will spotted them, he stopped what he was doing and shoved Ella aside in order to capture the girls' attention for himself. Ella scowled and considering pushing him back but she realized that would be babyish and didn't want to seem immature in front of Will, even if he was being a player.

Will led the girls forward and Ella glanced back towards the front door, still unsure about what to do before reluctantly closing the door and following them into the house. She didn't want to seem lame in front of Lyla but she also didn't want to upset Jason, especially after Lyla had just told him to "fuck off". It was something that had surprised Ella, knowing that if she had said it, she would've been sent straight to her room, but with Lyla, it was different. Ella envied her confidence and the way that she really just did and said whatever she wanted. She couldn't even flip off Sarah without getting yelled at for it but it seemed like Lyla could do anything. Ella's idolization of Lyla may have been different if she had seen all of the real consequences that her sister had to endure - the brutal hangovers, threats from her parents, and most recently, her overnight trip to jail, but most of that was hidden from Ella. She heard about the groundings and the lectures but those didn't seem like a steep price to pay for all of the fun that Lyla had, especially when she disregarded most of their warnings anyway.

Jason approached, introducing himself to the girls after directing Will to where the batteries were. "Jason's twenty-two," she said matter-of-factly, "and his girlfriend Alexandra is upstairs." Even though Ella knew that Jason and Alex were only friends, she recognized that Taylor and Madison were pretty and since Jason really didn't have a girlfriend, she didn't want anything to happen between them. It was true that Ella had literally only known them for two minutes, but because Jason had always been the one to devote the most time to Ella, she had always been defensive whenever he brought any girls home, despite how nice they were. She didn't like anyone to take his attention away from her and even now, when part of her wanted him to not care so much, she still feared that he would replace her with these strangers.

"Can we go swimming after Will puts your stuff upstairs? The beach is right outside and I want to go in the water," she said, completely switching the topic as she glanced out the window. By now, she had nearly forgotten about going shopping with Lyla and while she didn't want these girls to get too close to Jason, she was also kind of excited to have them there to do things with.

Madison was less than impressed with the teenage boy who flirted with Taylor and her as soon as he approached. He would have been the perfect package... if she was a sixteen-year-old bimbo who wanted someone to sweet talk her before ditching her a week later for a new girl. Since Madison didn't catch him checking out her ass, she figured that his flirting was harmless for now and tried to give him a polite smile as she followed Taylor further into the house. She had to admit that the house was even nicer on the inside than it was outside. There were high ceilings, beautiful furniture and decorations that perfectly accented the home, as well as an elegant staircase that they were approaching. Will had managed to fill his arms with her and Taylor's bags and as Madison glanced up the staircase, an older boy came towards them.

Madison guessed that he was probably only a few years younger than her, which was then confirmed when Ella randomly stated that he was twenty-two. If he hadn't introduced himself as Jason Kennedy, Madison probably could have guessed that he was Ella's brother. They were both blonde and she could see the similarities in their faces, despite the large gap in their ages. It was strange to Madison that Ella would bring up Jason's girlfriend but she was curious to see the others who Jason explained were upstairs. "Nice to meet you," Madison said, returning Jason's handshake. "I'm Madison."

Ella then spoke up again, asking if they would take her swimming. Madison had noticed that the beach was literally in their backyard and although she didn't necessarily enjoy swimming in the ocean, she wouldn't mind laying out and getting some sun for a little while. The kid was thirteen so Madison figured that she would know how to swim on her own. If not, she'd let Taylor take on this little job.

"Sure," Madison replied with another half, forced smile. "We should probably wait to meet your sisters and the other kids first," she offered. Although Madison wasn't privy on awkward introductions, it seemed to make sense that they should get it over with now rather than later.

Will passed the girls and walked right up to Jason. "Dibs on the scary one." He whispered as he took the bags upstairs to the two adjacent spare bedrooms. He took this time to open each suitcase, hoping he wouldn't get caught, and take a peak at their underwear. "mmm very nice, i will have to see these bad boys in use." He quickly put the underwear back and put each suitcase in each room. He hurriedly left the rooms.

He arrived back downstairs to see Ella pestering the babysitters, then he remembered what Jason said about the batteries. He Walked into the kitchen and got the correct batteries, then decided he might as well give his bike a tune up. He walked back out into the hall and while asked for the keys from Jason. He looked at both girls, now wondering what they looked like naked, then he looked straight at Madison and winked, then did a little nod like 'Hey yo girl, you like what you see?' and of course she did, what girl didn't?

Once Will got the keys he ran to Jason's car and grabbed the tools. He started to think how lucky he was to have car fanatic for a...Brother? Cousin? he was certainly more than a friend, but at the same time not at all. Will didn't know what to call Jason. Sure he wasn't of blood but their families were so close that he was practically family. Will knew that he treated Jason like family, but then what would that make Sarah? That made him shiver, ew, but that was different right? Right. Right? They weren't related so he could still like Sarah, but their two families were so close that Jason was a brother. Will's head hurt and he stopped thinking about it. He got to the garage, and still couldn't open it.

That's when Will realized that he had he wrong clicker. He entered through a back door closer to the garage and looked for the clicker but couldn't find it. That's when Will got his second good idea for the day. He used the tools to tighten up everything and he cleaned the oil and everything else that needed to be checked and double checked. Once that was done he sat down on the bike and switched it on with a small whirr. He turned on the gas and did a doughnut before aiming straight for the open door that led into the house. He revved the engine a couple times. This was going to be epic.

Before Alexandra could respond, Jack slipped past her and headed back to his room. He tossed the dime bag onto his bed and pulled off his t-shirt, dropping it onto the floor as he glanced at his reflection in the mirror. Not too bad, he thought as he flexed, admiring the results of his daily workouts. He turned to his closet, considering putting on a wet suit and going surfing before his door opened and Sarah walked in.

It was obvious very unusual, especially considering their exchange earlier that morning, but as soon as she opened her mouth, it was clear on why she came to him. She wanted alcohol but there was no way he'd get her whiskey.

"Surprise, surprise. Sober Sarah wants the only guy in this house whose cool enough to buy her alcohol to do her a favor," he said, turning to face her with a smirk. "There's no way that I'm getting nailed for buying you whiskey. That shit will fuck you up and since you're an alcohol virgin, you're not gonna even like whiskey. What about beer or those bitch drinks like Mike's Hard or Smirnoff Ice?" He asked, glancing down at his phone and scrolling through his Twitter feed for a moment before glancing back up at her. "If you're set on hard liquor, you can ask Ella if she'll share this with you," he said, rummaging through the back of his closet for a moment before appearing with a pink bottle of raspberry Svedka vodka. Supposedly Ella had seen it at one of the parties she had attended a few weeks earlier and thought it was "pretty", so she had to have it for the summer. Jack had agreed to buy it for her after having a particularly bad argument with his father about how he had to "get his life together" and "be more like Jason". He didn't want Ella to get drunk enough to hurt herself, only to a point where she'd be a problem for Jason.

Jack wasn't sure if he shouldn't have mentioned that he had been buying alcohol for Ella to Sarah, but he knew that she didn't get along well with Lyla, so she probably wouldn't mention it to her. Although Lyla also drank underage, Jack knew that she didn't approve of Ella following in her footsteps so he played dumb whenever Lyla talked about Ella getting alcohol for the parties that she and her friends went to. "Don't mention this to Lyla," he said, grabbing a sweatshirt from his closet and wrapping it around the bottle and handing it to Sarah, knowing that it would be a good enough cover up to transport the bottle a few feet away to her own room, in the unlikely chance that she would run into Alexandra or Jason. "Save some of it for Saturday, though. We're hosting... a few people... for 4th of July, but keep that on the down low."

He could hear Will shouting about the nannies being there and grinned when his younger brother described them as being hot. "Well, that's my cue," he said as he headed towards the door. "By the way, tell your make out partner that he can take his pot back," he said, tilting his head towards where it lay on his bed before passing Sarah and going downstairs.

Will was right, the two girls that were standing in front of him surely were hot. It didn't surprise Jack that Jason was already there, ready to show off and act like he was the head of the house. "I'm Jack," he said, flashing them a smile before Ella piped up about wanting to go swimming. Madison offered to take her once she met the rest of the kids, and although Jack wouldn't be the one to object to seeing her in a bikini, he turned to Ella and said, "I think Sarah wanted to ask you about something she wanted to borrow from you. Clothes or something. She's upstairs." He figured that it would be better to let Sarah portion out Ella's part of the vodka now, when Jason was busy assisting the nannies, than to try to do it later once everything calmed down. He just hoped that Ella would go along with it.

Alexandra had a feeling that Jack was lying, but why? It would hardly benefit him. Would it? She shook her head, a headache coming on from the stress of trying to figure out her twin's intentions. Not wanting to waste her entire day on it, she looked back to Alexander.

"I'll be keeping an eye on you." Was all she said before leaving the room and heading to her bedroom. Done with the confusing detour that she had taken, she entered her bedroom and got back on task. She took a five minute shower, as she always did after a morning work out. Alex then dried her hair, deciding to leave it down since it was a lazy day and there wasn't much point in spending time on it.

Outfit-wise, she decided on her white skirt with her black and white skull top with three quater-length sleeves. Feeling refreshed and ready for the day that had already been so hectic, she left her room and returned downstairs. She'd heard that the nannies were here and was sad that she hadn't been able to greet them when they came in but wasn't too bothered since she was sure Jason or Ella introduced them to the others who probably wouldn't care as much.

Downstairs she found Jason, Ella and Jack with two women who she assumed were the nannies. She approached them with a welcoming smile and light wave. Alex gave Jack a warning look, telling him to not dare to try and sleep with the nannies. She knew it was unlikely to have any effect, considering the amount of times she told him to not get involved with her friends but he did anyway. Putting the bad memories of losing her friends aside, she waited to introduce herself as she could see the nannies were going to be quite overwhelmed by it all.

Will revved the engine two more times and right before he was about to take off Sarah came outside. She wanted to ride on his bike. Well of course what girl doesn't want to ride on it. "Sure, come on." Once she was on and wearing a helmet, he revved the engine again and then let go of the break. He suddenly did the classic action movie of doing a slight wheelie for a second, then his front tire hit the Garage floor's concrete and he zipped into the house.

Will was pretty good with handling his bike so he drove the rooms downstairs one by one until he finally reached the front hall. He honked his horn so that His sister, brother, Sarah's sister, brother, and the two nannies, could all move out of the way in time for him to swerve through them into the kitchen. He neared the back door (which he had opened when he thought of this plan) then flew through it.

Once outside, Will drove to the front yard and onto the street. He accelerated and took off heading towards the Motocross track.

Taylor's eyes flashed away from Ella and Will when an older blonde boy walked towards them. He was gorgeous and he introduced himself, as Jason Kennedy. It wasn't a shock to Taylor who was already getting that big brother, well mannered vibe from him that his mother had described in her email. Although Taylor would never admit it, she was slightly disappointed when Ella pointed out that he had a girlfriend, Alexandra, who was upstairs.

After she got her fair share of gawking over with, she followed Madison's lead and shook Jason's hand before introducing herself. "It's great to meet you too! I'm Taylor. This house is amazing," she stated, smiling at the boy as she pulled her hand away. Taylor turned slightly, thinking that now would be a good time to bring their bags upstairs and get settled in, only to find that Will had brought them up for her. He appeared a moment later, almost simultaneously to Ella asking if they could go swimming. Like Madison, Taylor had also noticed how the home was literally located feet away from the beach. She was surprised when Madison agreed to take Ella, knowing that she would never get in the ocean when they went to the beach together, but Taylor was glad that Madison was already making an effort to help out and get used to taking care of Ella.

Taylor wanted to thank Will for bringing their bags upstairs but he was speaking to Jason about something and after Jason handed him something, he had disappeared down the hall. Two more people, a boy and a girl, had appeared. The boy introduced himself as Jack, and although the girl only offered a wave, Taylor assumed that she was Alexandra. She looked similar to Jack and appeared to be older than eighteen, which was the age that the second oldest girl, Lyla, was supposed to be.

"It's nice to meet you guys," she offered, a smile still present on her face as she watched a younger blonde girl make her way down the stairs and slip past the others, seemingly unnoticed by her siblings and friends. The next few minutes seemed to come so quickly that Taylor didn't know how to react. Jack had directed Ella upstairs and a second later, a dirt bike with Will and the girl she had seen a moment earlier zipped past them and out the back door.

Taylor opened her mouth to say something, but she didn't know what to say. Her mother would have killed her for wearing her roller skates in the house, nonetheless a dirt bike, but she wasn't sure what these kids were used to and guessed that maybe, somehow, this was normal to them. She doubted it and exchanged a worried look with Madison before turning to the others, asking, "Are they allowed to use that in the house?"

"Thanks Ella," Jason said trying not to laugh at how his younger sister saw fit to give out additional information about his age and his supposed girlfriend. It wasn't as if he hadn't gotten that joke more then a few times from family and friends, at this point, there wasn't really a point in trying to deny it, just wasted breath. [All Jason could offer Will was a shrug on his 'claim' of the dark one. He had to admit that the dark ones were never his thing, as he always said, never date someone with more baggage then you. It tended to end badly, but Will would need all the help he could get if he planned on trying to get with one of the nannies, and he had no reason to crush his hope.

At least he was able to put their names to their faces now with the introduction from Madison, she seemed nice enough all things considered although he wondered if being nannies was something they did or just a summer time thing? His mind instantly settled on it being a summer thing, unless people wanted to grow up to be nannies these days? In fact, how did one even go about trying to be a nanny? He was glad to see Madison so willing to take Ella to the beach, perhaps the dark look was just a look?

"It is pretty nice, a little too big at some times," Jason said shaking her small hand for a second, he hadn't gotten much of a look at her before as his attention was constantly being grabbed by someone or something, she had a certain 'girl next door' charm, was that even a thing? Well, it was now. He opened his mouth to say something else when, out of the corner of his eye, he spotted Alexandra and lifted his hand to wave back at her. How long had she been waiting? His mind was distracted, once again, by a loud horn echoing through the hall. Pushing himself against the wall, he had to fight the urge to stretch his arm out and knock Will off the bike, a flash of yellow hair stayed his hand as they zoomed past, and he saw Sarah on the back. Yea, they were going to be talking when they got back.

Jason stared at the open door, his mouth set in a frown, "No, they aren't allowed to do that in the house," he said, he reached up to rub his forehead, "I will take care of Sarah if you want to deal with Will?" He offered Taylor.
