Yes I know, shocking it's another update. 😜 I'm trying to be good. Well it's only a short one but it helps lead into the rest of the story and where I want to take it. A shout out thank you to @ElliAnn14 and a big thank you to @Booklover382 who helped me with all the big words. Yes I'm a simple person. So as normal to cover my ass I will give a *WARNING* about language and happy reading. 😄

*Group text message*

Luke POV

Wow! Uncle has really out done himself this time. A home all of our own. Oh god, Gabe is going to go crazy once he's told. Being able to decorate a whole house from the ground up. Maybe I can build a candy safe into my room to keep North away from them. It can be full of candy and chocolates. Can brains drool? If so, mine is.

No even better, a chocolate themed room

No even better, a chocolate themed room. An M&M room. With the little guys everywhere. North won't know what's real and what's decoration.

Oh, no, no ,no, a canny room with gummy bears and lollipops, gum balls and a chocolate fountain

My mind wanders until someone's hand makes contact with the back of my head. "Stop daydreaming fucker. We gotta get going to Nate's." Oh what a lovely little brother I have.

We pull into Nate's driveway just as the pizza delivery guys leaves. Ah, perfect timing. My tummy monster is crying out in pain. Well not as loud as Silas' his is screaming. Cupcake giggles every time it happens, which makes the big Greek giant blush all the more. "Aggele." Silas wines. Even North laughs as we head into the house.

"Everyone here?" I look around the room, noticing only a couple of us are missing. "Almost North, just Doc, Vic and Gabe left." Kota replies. As soon as that is said the front door opens and in walks the last three missing members of our family.

"Gentlemen and lady, let's have dinner before we sit down to discuss what Mr Taylor Jr has brought us together for." Following Mr. B's instructions I load up my plate before the rest of the animals take it all.

Once the clean up has finished I jump onto the beanbag chair closest to the TV. Silas has already claimed cupcake who is bouncing up and down on his lap in excitement. Ha, I don't wish to be him right now. He looks in part pain, part pleasure. "Aggele, please stop bouncing." He pleads. "Oh no, am I hurting you?" Her delicate face is full of worry. " no, no. It's just, ah." He pulls her back into him and the wide eyed look she now sports, clues us into what she now has pressed against her delectable ass. "Oh."

Once everyone is seated, North stands in front of the TV facing us. "I know most of you are wondering why I called this meeting. I'll get right to the point, uncle has given us an early Christmas present." He pulls out his phone and presses a few buttons. Seconds later everyone's phones go off indicating a text message. I open the app and it has a picture of the house North took.
"Why the fuck did you just send us a picture of a shitty house?" Gabe exclaims. "That is our present. That house and 7 acres of land, just outside Charleston. The house needs a complete renovation, but the structure is sound. At the moment it only has four bedrooms, so we will need to add on extensions. If we work on this in our spare time it should be complete by the time the majority of us are eighteen."
Everyone breaks into excited chatter. I hear Silas talking about wanting to build a fish tank into a wall, Kota hoping we will have room for a library, Nathan wanting an in home gym and more.

Mr. B makes his way to where North was originally standing and clears his throat. His body and face are showing calm yet I can see the excitement in his eyes. All sound of chatter dies down until all we can hear is the slight hum of the fridge. "This gift that we have received, is something that I cannot articulate, for it is hard to put into words. I'm sure you can understand how advantageous this gift is. It is the gift of privacy, of being able to have our family together how we wish to and not how others wish for us to be. It is also somewhere we may call home and not just a house. This will be a first true home to some of us and I myself am excited to begin this next adventure with you, my family. I open the floor to a vote. A vote on our future."

The vote was unanimous, the booming sound of "I am willing and I will obey" rang out across the room.
