"Oh honey, you sure you're gonna be fine by yourself?" mom asked as she and dad packed up the taxi with their suitcases. To relieve some stress dad had booked him and mom a vacation to California for a few weeks and they would be staying with some family members.

"Yes mom, I'll be fine." I sighed and rolled my eyes at mom's overprotective nature.

"Honey, she'll be okay just trust her." Dad reassured her and sent me a wink from behind mom's back.

"Okay, but I expect you to call me everyday to tell me how you're doing." she insisted and pulled me into a tight hug, well as tight a hug that a woman whose eight months pregnant can give you.

"Sure mom," I said and peeled myself away from her. I walked her over to the taxi and helped her inside. "Have fun and try not to stress ok?" I asked and kissed her on the cheek.

"I'll try honey, thank you." she smiled at me. Dad climbed into the back seat of the taxi and waved to Austin and I as they drove off.

"Okay, time to get you packed up too." Austin said and led me inside the house.

Stephen and I were set to leave tomorrow morning for camp while Austin and his friends were going to Miami. I was beyond nervous because I was being pushed into a setting that was completely foreign to me. My summers mainly consisted of staying home, tanning and relaxing while Austin and Stephen were away at camp.

"You okay?" Austin asked when he saw how quiet i was. Usually if he touched me I shoved him away from me.

"No, I'm nervous as shit." I answered and sighed. I felt a faint migraine starting to form.

"You'll be fine Dallas, the guys and I have trained you well and Stephen will be there in case you need help." he said as we reached our rooms. He guided me inside my room and walked into his so he could start packing for his summer of partying.

"I hope so." I mumbled to myself and dragged my duffel bag out from under my bed.

The next morning I was woken up by Austin barging into my room like always. I knew what he was in here for, he was making sure I was up so I could get ready to leave with Stephen in a few hours.

"Happy birthday to you! Happy birthday to you! Happy birthday dear, Dallas! Happy birthday to you!" Austin and numerous voices sang off key at the top of their lungs.

I opened one eye and saw my brother, boyfriend and all of our mutual friends standing above me.

"What are you doing?" I mumbled and burrowed myself into my blanket.

"Celebrating our birthday." Austin answered in a 'duh' tone.

"Our birthday isn't until tomorrow." I groaned.

"Exactly and I won't see you so I'm doing it today. Just quit complaining and get up so we can celebrate before we all have to leave." Austin said and yanked the covers off of me. The cold air hit my bare legs and I shivered as the guys whistled.  "Ugh, don't you ever wear clothes?!"

"I never told you guys to come in." I answered and sat up in bed. I stretched out my sore muscles and heard my bones pop.

"Baby, please put on some clothes." Stephen said and handed me some shorts.

"Dude, it's hot." I said and got up from my bed. I finally saw Austin standing there with a cake in his hands that had our names on it. "Oh, cake. Let me brush my teeth first and I'll come get a slice." I said and walked out of my room.

"Hurry up before we eat it all!" Austin hollered through the door as everyone walked to the kitchen.

I quickly brushed my teeth and pulled on some shorts before walking out to the family room where it was packed full of boys. This would be every girls dream to wake up to a bunch of football players standing in their living room, but for me this was normal. I was so used to having the guys over all the time it's like I adopted them as my brothers.
