Description

Image
Role: The Wild One
Name: William Thatcher White
Age: 16
Likes: Hot girls and Fast cars. Actually he can do without the cars. He also loves good food and football. He is a bit of an adrenaline junkie as well. He cant resist jumping from a cliff into a lake or pretty much doing anything that will get his heart racing. plus partying. He may hate drugs, but alcohol is a different issue. Getting drunk just means he can do even cooler things
Dislikes: Bugs, keep them away from him. He also doesnt like recreational drugs, they keep you off your game and unfocused.
Personality: Will is crazy and will do anything to impress his older brother and any hot girls around. He is even more stupid and wild when Lyla is around. Will has a bit of a crush on her and tries to get with her every chance he can. But the truth is that Will just wants a girl, sure Jack will never know, but deep in his heart Will is a romantic. He has only ever kissed a girl and sure he wouldn't mind going a lot farther with a girl, but that doesn't mean he wouldn't mind having a relationship too. Will is afraid to show his true emotions though because he knows that the others will ridicule him, so he hides it with daring stunts and stupid activities and partying.



Relationships:
-The Responsible One:
Jason is cool and all, but he isn't any fun. Honestly Will thinks that something must be up his ass because no one can be that much of a goody two-shoes. Sometimes he feels like Jason should follow Will's lead, instead of the other way around, and live a little. Life is only so short. Plus he watches disgusting chick flicks.
-The Smart One:
What can Will say? She's his sister so he loves her, but she could loosen up a bit too. She always makes snooty remarks which can sometimes make Will feel stupid. Will knows he isnt he just wishes sometimes he could be as smart as her. Oh and he will never admit it but she did turn him on to some geeky stuff, which in turn led him to discover supernatural. He plans on getting the anti-possession tattoo someday, among others.
-The Jerk:
Will loves Jack. He is everything that Will wants to be and more. He is great with women, he's super cool, and he is Will's older brother. Seriously who could be better? There is nothing he loves more than playing ball, partying, and taking advice from Jack.
-The Screw Up:
Will can sum up his feelings with Lyla with one word. HOT. He has tried for as long as he can remember to hook up with her and sure she flirts with him, but whenever he tries to take it further she shoots him down. That hasn't stopped Will though! He will be with her.
-The Quiet One:
Will loves Sarah like a sister. She is the one he goes to whenever he needs someone to talk to. He never really thought of her as anything more than a friend, but sometimes he cant help but wonder what it would be like. Then she started dating his weird younger brother and it started happening, he began to like her more and more. Maybe it was because she was unavailable? or maybe it was because he now knew that she wasn't totally opposed to dating.
-The Outcast:
Will never really got along with Alex. He was just to weird and kind of a loner. Will wishes he could take Alex under his wing like Jack did with him, but Alex just doesn't seem to want the same thing. But that's his loss, because honestly who wouldn't want a cool older brother like Will. Somehow though he was able to get with Sarah [The Quiet One] and that just baffles Will. Of all the others, Alex is the only one he feels superior too, he is the one Will can boss around or be mean too.
-The Little One:
Will can tell that Ella is going to grow up to be hot, but every time he thinks about anything dirty with her he gets a little guilty. He even considered convincing the young girl to do it with him, but he couldn't do that to a 13 year old. Other than that she can be fun to hang out with, as long as there are older people there so it doesn't feel like he's back as the kid's table.

So begins...

Will yawned as he sat up in his bed. He looked at the clock, reading ten thirty he flopped back down. It was way too early to get up. Then he started to smell something. Something delicious! Sarah! Will quickly jumped out of bed. He couldn't be more excited to spend the summer with his best friend. Sure he wouldn't mind being more, but she was with his freaky stoner brother. Still there were plenty of girls in the sea and sarah was a good friend, and that was all.

Will went into his bathroom and quickly ran some water through his bed head hair and brushed his teeth. Then he threw on a tee and some basketball shorts that he grabbed off the floor. Sure it had only been two days but his room was already a disaster area. Will didn't mind though, that was just the way he lived. Will got to his door and stopped, taking a deep breath. He couldn't let the others see how excited he was, he had to be cool, like his older brother jack.

Will opened his door and at a hurried pace walked down the long hall to the kitchen. Will always chose the farthest room from everything, it made him feel like he was alone sometimes. He hurried hoping to catch sarah. Thats when Sarah rounded the corner and Will instantly lit up, his smile reaching from ear to ear. "Morning Sarah."

Then Alexander rounded the corner behind her, and Will's mood crashed through the floor and halfway to china. "Oh...I see youre busy...We'll hang out later?" Will asked as he ignored his stoner brother. Honest he didn't really have any problem with him. In fact Will was a little jealous at Alexander's guitar skills, but jack hated him, so Will didn't like him either. Will entered the kitchen and instantly made way for the bacon. "Good morning everybody! Who wants to go dirtbiking?" he questioned as he shoved three pieces of bacon into his mouth.

Sarah glared at Jack as she heard him whisper to Jason, but she didn't say anything. Why was he making assumptions that she was "taking Alexander to first base"? Just because she pecked his cheek and asked him to play his guitar for her?

In Sarah's eyes, Jack was just another idiotic, sex-crazed boy who was drunk in lust. He was a total douche bag, and he had no idea what he was talking about. He made assumptions way too quickly, but it seemed like that's what everyone was doing these days. They see something fishy, and they make it into something it's not.

That's what Jack was doing right now, and it pissed Sarah off. Why couldn't he just mind his own business?

Sarah then realized that Jack was probably just trying to piss Jason off, which just made her even angrier with him. Sure, Jason and Jack had some problems, and they were no longer the best of friends, but that doesn't mean he has to try his hardest to piss Jason off. It was mainly Jack's fault that they weren't friends anymore in Sarah's eyes, but she was somewhat biased, considering Jason is her brother, and of course she would take his side, but hey, isn't that what family is for?

Aren't you always supposed to be their for your family, to have their back?

Sarah thought that's the way things work, and that's exactly the principle she followed. Be there to take your family's side, and always have their back.

Sarah looked at Will who had just greeted her, and she responded to him, "Hey, I'll try to hang out with you later, but for now I'm going to hang with Alexander," she said softly, giving him an apologetic smile.

Sarah glanced at Ella, rolling her eyes, but she remained silent. Ella was such a drama queen, but it was somewhat quite amusing how much Ella over-reacted about everything.

Ella was very high maintenance, but it was normal for a typical thirteen year old girl, so Sarah easily over-looked it.

Sarah went upstairs with Alexander, and she was greeted by a smell that seemed roughly familiar, but she couldn't quite identify it, however, she didn't like the smell nevertheless. She ignored it, hoping she would get used to it soon, and she smiled at Alexander, "So, what song do you have in mind for me?"

#, as written by Taunbon
"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.

Sarah's eyes widened, and she fell off the bed due to being startled. She quickly stood up and glared at Alexandra, "We weren't going to smoke it," she told her quickly, and she had no idea what to do.

So, she ran passed Alexandra, and she went downstairs, going straight to Will, who just happened to be downstairs.

"Your sister is going to kill me," Sarah whispered to him, and she stood behind him, attempting to hide herself behind his larger body, "You better protect me, or you're dead," she smirked.

Sarah was always herself around Will. The fun, bubbly version of herself she had been before three years ago. Will was her best friend then, and he still was now, so she was still the same as she's always been around him. She threatened him playfully, and she joked around with him, and she laughed her head off when she was with him.

She watched the stairs, afraid Alexandra would come down, and she held Will's shoulders under her hands firmly, making sure he wouldn't go anywhere.

Will rolled his eyes at the news about the baby sitters. Great, just what he needed, two old hags telling him what to do. He lived by his own rules, no one told him what to do...except for Alexandra and Jack, but no one else. He was about to head out to get his dirt bike when he decided he might as well have a bit more bacon. Oh and some Orange juice. And he guessed that some eggs wouldn't hurt either.

Will finished fixing his plate and was about to head over to the island when he was startled by Alexandra's loud yelling. It startled him so much that he nearly dropped his plate and juice. He set all of the food down "What is going on?" that's when Sarah came in, she ran behind him and told him that his sister was going to kill her. "What are you doing hiding behind me then?! I don't want to die too!" he was about to get behind her and cower like she was doing, only a bit more comically since he was larger than she was. but then she placed her hands on his shoulders and he suddenly felt very protective.

Will waited patiently for his sister, who apparently had gone super saiyan, and he chuckled at that thought. Now she could finally be Jason's twin sister instead of Jack's. Her dream come true.

Sarah rested her head on Will's shoulder, "I'd rather sacrafice you than get killed. Your sister thinks I was smoking weed, which I wasn't," Sarah saw the bacon on his plate, and she reached over his other shoulder, grabbing a strip, and she began eating it, "So anyway, Alexandra is getting all pissed off over nothing. She's like out of control, dude," Sarah sighed, and she began playing with Will's hair, due to being bored.

She always used to mess up his hair, just to make him mad, and she would laugh her ass off because of it. So, just to make him angry, she roughly ran her fingers through his hair, messing it up completely.

"You look.... stunning," Sarah bursted into a fit of laughter as she pointed at his hair.

She knew others probably wouldn't find it that amusing, but for some reason, she loved making Will angry, mainly because he was funny when he was mad in her opinion.

Sarah smirked, "You should totally be a hair model, Will," she giggled softly, her eyes dancing in amusement.

"What?!" Will turned around to look at Sarah. "You smoked weed?...good job!" Will lifted a hand for a high five. He hated weed but he was happy that Sarah came out of her shell a little. He always wished that she would be more outgoing and not so shy, like she was with him, but she seemed to like keeping to herself so Will didn't much care.

Sarah started to mess with his hair and that's when he pushed her away. She always knew how to push his buttons, and he instantly started messing with it. "Stop! i spent time on that." He walked over to the closest mirror and started messing with it to make it perfect. Once he got it back into the way he liked he walked back over to Sarah. "I should be a hair model huh? how about a stylist? I'll start with you." With that he started rubbing her hair all over the place, turning it into a mess and making sure it was sticking up all over the place. "There, perfection. You might be right, you look better already" Will teased as he stuck his tongue out at Sarah.

Then Will bent down and picked Sarah up over her shoulder with ease. "Hey I have an idea, since you're so stoned i should wake you up with some water." Then Will looks at the others "What do you say? should i throw her in the pool?"

To Jack, Jason's tough guy persona was almost laughable. He was a nice guy who was on top of his sister about eating a balanced meal one minute, and the next he was talking about hurting his brother. Although Jack and Alexander didn't get along, Jason's threats towards his brother bothered him. If anyone was going to pick on or beat up Alexander, it was going to be him, not Jason. "I dare you to touch him, dude. It'd be just one more reason for me to knock you out," he muttered. Jack and Jason had never actually gotten into a physical fight, although they'd gotten pretty close to it several times. Alexandra was usually the one to push them apart and sometimes, Jack felt bad about putting her in that situation. At the same time though, he was kind of offended that she would continue to be friends with such an asshole.

"They've been dating for a year, I sure as hell hope that they've done more than just make out..." Jackson really wasn't sure about what his brother and Sarah did, and for the most part, he didn't want to know. He would have a little bit of respect for Alexander if he had managed to do more than just have a 13-year-old kiss with his girlfriend, but he honestly couldn't say whether or not he had. They were practically the opposite of being close and Jack made a mental note to get Will to find out details about Sarah and Alexander's relationship later on.

Jason made another snide remark about Jack inviting Lyla to the beach despite her parents stating that she wasn't allowed to go anywhere. "I'm honestly not surprised that you're going into the law business. You've been the fun police for the last what...? Ten years? Our parents are on a plane headed to the other side of the fucking world. I'm pretty sure they're not going to know if she goes to the beach for like, an hour," he remarked, standing up from his seat. Normally, Jackson like to push Jason's buttons and make him seem like the asshole, but he was actually starting to annoy him. Things weren't going to be as easy as he thought with Jason, the stick-in-the-mud, around.

"I'm heading out to surf," he said to Will, who had entered the room a moment before, asking if anyone wanted to go dirt biking. "Come if you feel like it."

Jack was already on his way out of the kitchen when Alexandra announced that the nannies were on his way, but he allowed her to pass him on his way up the stairs as he checked his text messages. As he reached the top of the stairs, she was shouting about something that Alexander and Sarah were doing and only a second later, Sarah bounded down the stairs with a frightened expression on her face. The first thing that came to Jack's mind was that the two had finally had sex, but as he approached the room, he saw a dime bag of weed and knew that was the real culprit.

In a quick and strangely unusual move for Jack, he slipped past Alexandra and grabbed the small bag from his brother's hands. "I've been looking for this - must've packed it with your shit instead of mine. My bad," he said casually as he slipped the bag into his pocket and turned to Alexandra. "Chill Alex... it's just a little weed and judging by your reaction, you should be the one smoking it, not me," he continued with a smirk. "Don't make a big deal about it though, I don't need to give your B-F-F another reason to be a dick to me," he finished, glancing down towards the stairs. He had a feeling that Jason would either be questioning Sarah about why Alexandra was screaming or coming up to investigate himself. Although Jack would never normally take the blame for anything to save Alexander, it would be less of a shocker if he was the one to have the weed and besides that, if Jason found out that Alexander was smoking, he wouldn't let Sarah near him, making it even harder for him to throw a party. As long as everyone was getting along, he figured that he could probably persuade each of them to go along with it, and then Jason would have to agree, or at least not bitch so much about it.

Sarah glared at him, "Don't you listen, Will? I said I DID NOT smoke weed, your sister just assumed that I did. Although, I would be willing to try it, but drinking alcohol seems like it would be more fun," she simply shrugged with a small smile.

Her eyes widened as he messed up her hair, and she lunged at him, tackling him to the ground, and she tickled him.

"You better not throw me in a pool unless you want to die a slow, painful, miserable death," she continued tickling him.

Sarah knew all his ticklish spots considering she had spent at least ten years finding them, and she knew she could get Will to do anything just by tickling him. It was one of his weaknesses.

"One more reason for you to back down and continue living your 'life'," Jason counted just as easily. Every time they almost got into a fight, Alex always broke it up, and while Jason was more then willing to beat down Jack as maybe some pain would give him time to rethink his life, he wasn't willing to hurt Alex like that. Still, even as children, he couldn't remember a time they truly got into a physical fight. It usually was Jack prowling around trying to taunt Jason, Jason firing back, they about to get into a fight and something or someone breaking it up. A part of him wanted to get the fight going and over with.

Law school. He had yet to tell anyone about that yet, and he sure as hell wasn't about to tell Jack a thing, "Someone had to do it. Perhaps if you put on your big boy pants, someone would trust you," Jason said, still leaning against the sink. How in the world Jack thought him being responsible was an insult he never understood. It was like calling someone too smart, it wasn't really an insult in any way.

He had kept quite content to watch Sarah and Will joke and play with each other. It had been a while since he last saw her act so carefree like she had back then. While he didn't dislike Will, he as afraid he would turn out like his brother, but he was more comfortable around Will as he understood Will on some level, he did not understand Alexander at all. The word weed did catch his attention as Will, in his infinite wisdom, had nearly yelled it.

"Weed, Sarah?" Jason asked crossing his arms looking at her to see what she would say.

Although Ella was used to spending summers with The White's, it did get overwhelming sometimes to listen to so many people at once. At home, it was usually just her, Lyla and Sarah, and with Sarah being so quiet and Lyla preferring to hang out with her friends, things were usually pretty low key. Her mother would come home around dinner time and her there were days when Ella would go to bed before her father even got home. Jason had spent the past few years at school so she really only saw him on holiday breaks, leaving Ella to spend most of her time with a nanny or watching TV and occupying herself. Now, the amount of people that she was living with had doubled and while she loved having people to talk to, it also meant that there would be more arguments.

It was only the first day and her brother and Jack were already being mean to each other, and Ella was aware of the friction between Lyla and Alexandra, and even Lyla and Sarah as well. She could be a brat at times herself, but she didn't have any ongoing feuds with any of the others and Ella guessed that it was because she was so young. Even though she was only two years younger than Sarah and Alexander, she sometimes felt like they were a lot older and that she didn't really have a set place. Once Alexander and Sarah started dating, they moved up from being part of the "little kids" with her, and into the "older kids" group. Ella wasn't extremely close with either of them, especially Alexander, so it wasn't a huge deal, but she kind of felt left out with having no one her age to hang out with. She did have Lyla though, and recently, that was enough for Ella to be happy with.

Jason explained to her that Lyla wasn't able to take her shopping because she was grounded, but Ella turned to Lyla, hoping that her sister would give her a different answer. Being grounded hadn't stopped Lyla from doing what she wanted to do in the past and Jack seemed to be right. Her parents were far away and would never know if Lyla broke the rules. It seemed to make sense to Ella, even though she knew that it was wrong to go against her parents' wishes.

Ella hadn't noticed that Alexander and Sarah had left the room until Sarah came running down the stairs and straight to William. She watched as the two joked around, tickling and jumping on top of each other before Will had Sarah pinned to the floor, looking like he was about to spit on her. "You guys are gross," she scoffed.

In all of the commotion, Ella figured that it would be a good time to dump her plate without Jason noticing that she had wasted yet another plateful of food without eating more than a bite, so she quickly emptied it into the trash and dropped the dish into the sink, knowing that someone would take care of washing it later.

Sarah was squirming and screaming, "Will! Stop it now!" she flipped them over so now she was on top of him, and she began tickling Will again, "Loser," she smirked at Will, then she glared at Ella as she called them gross, "We are not gross, you're just jealous because you don't have a boy trying to spit on you," after Sarah said it, she realized it was probably the dumbest thing she'd ever said in her entire life.

Sarah looked up at Jason who had just questioned her about the weed, "It was Jack's. He just accidentally misplaced it in Alexander's bags, I swear, I wasn't smoking it, and niether was Alexnder," she told him. Half of that was true.

But the part about Jack was a lie.

She didn't like lying to Jason, but she also didn't want Jason to be mad at her, nor did she want him to be mad at Alexander.

To busy watching Sarah, he didn't notice Ella sneaking by to clean off her plate. Again. He didn't miss the way she looked at Lyla as if to confirm it, and he didn't like that too much. Lyla was grounded, after her act in the car, she was not driving Ella anywhere anytime soon. Ever, if Jason could help it.

Still, he almost hated to interrupt Sarah and Will in their playing, but he had to get a straight answer, his eyes searched Sarah's face as she told him. He thought it over, he really doubted Alexander wasn't on something, he seemed to be one of those kids who used weed and the like to escape from his life rather then face it, but he did believe her when she said she didn't do it, "Alright," Jason said, giving a small smile, "I trust you."

He would trust Sarah and take her word for it this time. She had earned that much, and she was the only sister he had that he was willing to take the word for as truth. He didn't feel the need to tell her to not do it as she was smart enough to know that already. How he wished he could say that about Lyla.

Turning his attention back to Ella, he tapped his chin, "You know.... with the Nannies coming, I am sure they would love to go shopping with you, I might even leave some money out by accident that could go a long way," he said trying to bribe his youngest sister away from Lyla for awhile.

Ella wasn't sure if she was really supposed to be jealous about not having "a boy trying to spit" on her as Sarah asserted, but she wasn't going to let Sarah be right about that, especially not in front of Will. Ella claimed that if she didn't end up marrying David Beckham's oldest son Brooklyn, that William would be her second choice, so she was always a little bit jealous of Sarah's relationship with him. When Ella wasn't around Jason or her sisters, she found it much easier to flirt with him. In fact, she had even hung out with him at a few of the high school parties she had secretly went too earlier that year. When she was around her family though, it was like she fell back into her innocent and appropriately immature personality. Even Ella recognized the difference at times but she felt like it was a lot of work to be "cool" all of the time. Sometimes she just liked having her siblings make her breakfast and doing things that her friends would find lame, like watching movies with her brother or playing on the trampoline. She was on the edge of growing up and was caught between wanting to be mature in front of her friends and Lyla, but also wanting to continue to do things that she genuinely enjoyed without worrying about her reputation.

She flipped Sarah off, hoping that it was quick enough that Jason didn't manage to catch it before saying, "I bet your boyfriend would spit on me if I wanted him to." Ella had kissed a boy before, but nothing more than that. She knew what sex was and had heard kids in school talking about oral sex, but she didn't really know what a lot of it entailed. However, she wasn't going to let Sarah know that and figured that having a boy spit on her was probably one of those weird things that was supposed to be sexy.

Even with the bribe of money to spend, Ella wasn't satisfied with Jason's offer to have the nannies take her shopping. She wanted Lyla to bring her. Her oldest sister had impeccable style and Ella always felt cool when her sister drove her places. Even her friends thought that Lyla was cool, and that was hard to get out of snobby thirteen-year-old girls.

"I don't want to go with the nannies," she complained, propping her head up on her hands as she gave her brother a dramatically distressed look. "They're probably old and gross," she continued, thinking back to the Nanny that her parents had employed for most of her childhood. The woman was an immigrant from some Latin American country who spoke poor English, and although she was very good at caring for her, there was no way that Ella was going to be seen out with an old lady who was clearly her babysitter. That would just be embarrassing.

"Can I borrow a bathing suit from your closet?" she asked eagerly as she turned back to Lyla. "Please, please, please! I won't ruin it." Even though Ella knew that Lyla's body was much more developed than hers and most of her clothes never fit, she still liked to borrow her things. Whether Lyla would agree to it or not, Ella was known to take her sister's clothes.

Sarah somehow managed to turn the tables back on Will. He couldn't have this, to be beaten by a girl? That would be absurd and downright embarrassing. Will Somehow managed to get back to a standing position. He was tired and breathing a little heavy. He really needed to stop eating so much junk food and get back to the gym. He physically may not show it, but he felt it.

Will turned to Ella. "If you don't want the nannies to take you, i can take you to the mall. It's not that far if i go really fast on my bike." Will snickered. He loved his dirt bike. His parents gave it to him for his 13th birthday and he has been riding it ever since. It was getting a little small but he didn't mind. He broke his first bone on that bike, and his second. He had it specially modified so that it could meet road standards for when he got his motorcycle license on his 16th birthday.

Upon having her plate piled with eggs [maybe a bit more than she had wanted, but a challenge the girl was more than happy to take on], Lyla took a seat to begin eating. When Jack asks if she wants to hang out at the beach in a few minutes, her mouth opens to respond in the obvious affirmative; the beach is perhaps one of her favorite places, especially this particular one. However, it immediately shuts and turns into a scowl when Jason responds in her place, informing Jack that she will not be going anywhere until the nannies arrive. Lyla gives him a death glare, and it is at least half due to the fact that her elder brother is speaking as though she isn't sitting right there. This is typical, of course --people have been talking about her and ignoring her presence for a while now, especially when those people are either or adults or people who think that they know best [her brother fitting into the latter category, of course]. "Oh, fuck off, Jason. I'm right here, you know," she finally breaks her nasty look to glance towards Jack, who is equally unimpressed by Jason's attempt to exert authority over her, from the look of it.

There is little doubt that she fully plans on going to the beach, most likely before the nannies arrive to give their approval over it. Jason's overreacting about this, as far as Lyla's concerned. If anything, going down to the beach should be considered rather tame --there's a long stretch which can be seen from the house, leaving her practically supervised. After Jack and Jason have a bit of a confrontation, ending in Jack leaving and the sudden screams from Alexandra, Lyla looks over at Ella, who is looking up at her expectantly. Normally, she wouldn't want to drive her little sister around. She only usually does it when she's already heading there anyway. However, she's still irritated with Jason, especially about the driving comment, and so of course the first thing that she wants to do is get behind the wheel of a car.

"Borrow something? I don't think it'll fit you, Ella. Better just go buy something --and yes, I will take you," she directs the last part at Ella, but her eyes lock on Jason for a moment, before she drops her empty [at some point she had managed to eat all of her eggs] plate in the sink and heads out the door. She doesn't look back to see if Ella will follow her. Besides, the young woman needs to run up and change first. But that only takes a moment --she can dress well and fast because most of what she owns will look good in nearly any combination. It's a good strategy for someone who tends to sleep in a lot.

Even if Ella had elected to go with Will, Lyla can just go down to the beach. She's wearing a bathingsuit underneath her clothing, which is necessary layering for a summer on the coast..

Sarah got off of Will quickly, and she glared at Ella, "Don't say things like that, Ella! And don't flip me off either. You're acting like Lyla more and more each day," she muttered the last part, shaking her head.

She smiled at Will, "After you take Ella to the mall, I was hoping maybe we could hang out. I mean earlier, I couldn't since I was hanging with Alexander, but if you want to hang later, I would love to."

Sarah loved hanging with Will. He was her best friend after all, and he was the only person she could be her care-free self around. She was afraid to expose that side of herself to anyone else. Especially Alexander. She figured he wouldn't want anything to do with her if she were careless around him, and she didn't want that to happen.

She went to the kitchen, getting a soda from the fridge, and she opened it, taking a large sip.

Sarah was still thinking about trying alcohol, just to see what it was like, but she wasn't old enough to buy alcoholic drinks, and she knew for sure that Jason, Alexandra, and the nannies most definitely wouldn't buy any for her.

However, there was one more person in the house that was old enough, and he might just buy some for Sarah. And that one person is Jack.

Sure, Sarah wasn't fond of the boy, but she wouldn't mind asking him to get her an alcoholic beverage, and she didn't want a lousy beer or wine, she wanted something more like whiskey or vodka.

Sarah went upstairs to Jack's room, not bothering to knock as she opened the door, closing it behind her after she entered the room, and blurted out, "Would you be willing to buy me some whiskey?"

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.

Ella was pretty sure that if Jason wouldn't even let her drive with Lyla to go shopping, that riding on the back of Will's bike wasn't going to go over well either. She was right, as Jason confirmed that she wasn't allowed to do go with him. It bothered her for a second, as she imagined how cool it would be to be able to act as if he was her boyfriend who was taking her shopping, but then remembered that the helmet would probably give her horrible hat hair. She was not about to deal with that.

Luckily for her though, Lyla insisted on taking her despite Jason already rejecting the idea. Her sister turned and left, going upstairs to get ready, just as Sarah scolded her and commented on how she was acting like Lyla. Ella didn't mind that comment - in fact, she appreciated it. She didn't mind being disrespectful to Sarah, or even Jason (although she wasn't as confident doing it to him yet, knowing that he actually would punish her), if it meant that she was becoming as cool and rebellious and Lyla was.

Ella was too excited about the idea of going shopping with Lyla to think of another comment to use against Sarah, so she left the kitchen and headed towards the front door. She had left a pair of sandals there after getting them covered in sand the day before at the beach. They had dried off now and she shook off the sand, waiting for Lyla to return to leave as she slipped them on.

The gate buzzer rang, signaling that someone was at the front gates but Ella didn't react to it. At home, she had been banned from answering the intercom after she let in several solicitors and Jehovah's Witnesses. Her parents had warned her that she was only allowed to answer it if she was expecting someone but Ella was too impulsive to not push the button when it rang. After being yelled at for doing it multiple times over the past year, she knew better than to do it again. It wasn't a problem though because only a moment later, Jason approached and did it himself. It didn't even click in Ella's mind that it was the nannies until she decided that she'd wait for Lyla by the car and pulled the door open, only to find two girls standing in the doorway, both only appearing to be only a few years older than Jason. They were a lot younger and prettier than she expected them to be and for a moment, Ella forgot about going shopping with Lyla. She looked the girls up and down before turning back towards Jason, unsure of what she was supposed to say to the girls.

"Me and my sister are going shopping," she said. It came out a bit awkwardly, considering that Ella skipped introducing herself and jumped right to the point, but when she glanced at their bags and remembered that the girls would be staying with them all summer, it started bothering her again. She didn't want them bossing her around in place of her parents, even if her mother had assured her that she would have fun with the nannies. Ella doubted that Lyla would like them and as long as she didn't, Ella wasn't going to either.

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.

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.
