One year after viii. universities, books and roommates

"Seriously, guys? Leave it alone," Stevie growled as she stormed into the house with Leonardo and Andy following shortly behind her. The two twin boys were eagerly following after her, annoying her even further than she already was by them. "It's none of your business."

"Yes, it is!" Andy argued with her as they stopped in the kitchen.

"No, it's not," Stevie yelled. "It's my life. Just because the two of you are my brothers doesn't mean you get to boss me around whenever you like."

"We're not bossing you around," Leo defended them.

"Really? Then what would you call telling me who I can see and who I can't?" She crossed her arms over her chest. "It's not your choice."

"You're fifteen-years-old, Evie," Andy frowned, pushing his glasses up the bridge of his nose. "You're not old enough to date. Let alone make-out."

"Why? Lennon was dating at my age," Evie argued, trying to use her eldest brother as a way out of the argument she was currently having with the twins. "I don't want to talk about this anymore. I am allowed to do what I want to do. It's not your life."

"What's going on in here?" Harry stepped into the kitchen.

"Will you please tell Leo and Andy to butt out of my business?" Evie frowned in Harry's direction.

"Guys, come on, leave her alone," Harry said as he opened the refrigerator to grab a bottle of water.

"Dad, you don't get it. She's trying date Sean," Leo told him.

"What?" Harry's eyes widened.

"I'm not trying to date him. I am dating him and have been for the last two months," Evie frowned. "I like him. He likes me. What is wrong with that?"

"You're too young to date," Harry shook his head.

"You let Lennon date at my age!" She groaned. "You would have let these two idiots date if they weren't so annoying to be around. Why can't I?"

"Because you're-."

"If you say because I'm a girl I'm going to scream," she told him. "That is the lamest excuse. Give me one good reason why I can't go out with Sean? I thought you liked him."

"I like him when he's not going after my daughter," Harry crossed his arms over his chest. "The answer is no."

"I can't believe you," she growled in anger before glaring at her brothers. "This is your fault."

"Hey love, how was-" Indie wandered towards the kitchen as Stevie stormed out of the kitchen and up the stairs in a huff, ignoring Indie completely. She furrowed her eyebrows together as she walked over to Harry. "What was that about?" She asked as she rested her hand on Harry's torso and leaned on her toes to kiss him.

"Evie's mad because dad said she can't date," Leo told her and took a seat on the stool, setting his backpack on the counter and yanked his laptop out of it while Andy did the same.

"Oh, is that so?" Indie leaned away from her husband. "Who exactly is she trying to date?"

"Not trying, she's apparently dating that Taylors boy," Harry shook his head.

"That Taylors boy?" Indie laughed. "Harry, Sean's a sweet kid. He's River's kid and he's exactly like his father. Wouldn't you rather her first boyfriend be someone we know? Someone we can trust?"

"No," he shook his head. "Why are you so okay with this? She's fifteen."

"I was dating at fifteen or I was at least interested in dating at her age," Indie crossed her arms. "You realize if you tell her not to do it, she's just going to want to do it more and you were perfectly fine when Lennon wanted to go on a date at fifteen."
