I woke up the next morning with tear-stained eyes. I had cried so much last night. I walked down the steps after getting out of my bed since Luke's arm was over top of me. I was downstairs getting out a microwaveable pancake, and heard Luke walking down the steps. Well, it had to be him since no one else was home. I turned to see Luke, biting his lip. He bit his lip when something was on his mind.

"What are you thinking about Luke?" I asked him since something had to be wrong. I didn't know if it was last night or something else.

"Just last night.. We don't know if you're pregnant or not. I don't know if I'll be a good dad if you are pregnant"

"Luke, babe, if I am pregnant, you'll be the perfect dad. If I'm not, that's good, right?"

"Yeah. Thanks Mak."

"Mmhm," I mumbled, "now get something to eat."

"Okay" he walked over to the fridge and got out some milk, then got into the cupboards for cereal.

I heard a car door slam, and the front door swung open seconds later. It was Ashton. He walked over to me, sleepily. Him and the other boys probably stayed up late last night. He rubbed his eyes, sitting down next to me at the counter.

"What did you and the other boys do last night?" Luke asked Ashton.

"We wrote a little.. stayed up real late.. All that shit. You?" Ashton replied.

"We watched a movie, then fell asleep on the couch." Luke covered. I smirked without Ashton seeing.

"What movie?"

"Pursuit of Happyness" Luke said, thinking of everything.

"Really? Thats my favorite!!" Ashton complained.

"Sorry.." I apologized.

"Anyways.... The boys are coming over for practice in an hour or so" Ashton announced.

"Okay, that'll work" Luke agreed.


An hour and a half later, Calum and Michael arrived. I greeted them, then they made their way to the garage with Luke and Ash. I made my way outside with my football. I didn't really play, but I live in Australia with two close friends, a boyfriend, and a stepbrother that know how to play. I kicked around the football, kicking it between two trees that acted as a goal. I raised my arms in victory, then put my hands around my mouth, silently screaming and pretending to be the crowd. I turned around and saw the boys standing there, staring at me.

"Ummm.. Hello?" I was kind of embarrassed.

"Hey Mak. What was that?" Calum asked.

"I don't know... I do that all the time" I told them.

"Wanna play a match?" Michael asked me.

"Sure" We created teams, and the first team was Luke, Michael, and me. The second team was Calum and Ashton. They were uneven, yeah, but Calum really knew what he was doing, and we had three because I'm a girl.

We started, and Calum had the ball. Michael and Ashton were the goalies. Calum was dribbling the football down the field, and I stole it from him. It wasn't really a steal. It seemed like he let me steal it. I dribbled it the other way, kicking it past Ashton after he dived for it.

"What the fuck was that, Cal?!!" Ashton yelled at Calum.

"Sorry, mate.. I just lost control of the ball.." Calum answered.

"Yeah, sure, you lost control while staring at Mak" Ashton said under his breath.

"Shut up" Calum whispered back. One thing they didn't know was that I heard all of it. It's no secret Calum likes me, so this doesn't surprise me.

"We playing anymore?" Michael asked.


This time, Calum got the ball, then Luke took it from him and dribbled towards the other goal that Ashton was at. He got close, passed it to me, and I shot it in, the ball just missing Ashton's hands.

"Okay, I'm done. I can't play with this lovestruck fucker anymore" Ashton said, meaning Calum.

"Um, I'm right here!" Calum yelled.

"Yeah, and I'm right here too!" I yelled.

"I'm her boyfriend, Calum. Fuck off" Luke defended me,

"Hey! I never said I wanted to get you out of the way so I can date her! I just like her, okay?" Calum defended himself.

"Still right here!!" I told them.

"And I'm over here!" Michael smiled, trying to be in the conversation. We all laughed at Michael. He was just trying to be in the conversation!

We all went inside and just watched movies for the rest of the afternoon. It was 6pm by the time I got off the couch. I walked into the kitchen and grabbed the phone. The boys were probably really hungry, so I ordered 2 large pizzas.

The pizzas came within 20 minutes, and they were gone within 10. I was right. They were hungry. It was now 6:30, and we got back onto the couch to watch some Family Guy or Fresh Prince of Bel Air on Netflix. I was curled up next to Luke on the couch, and I fell asleep at about 9.

*Luke's POV*

Makenna fell asleep around nine, so I grabbed her and carried her bridal style into her bedroom. I laid her down on her bed, and kissed her forehead. "Goodnight babe" I whispered into her ear. I walked back downstairs, and sat down in the couch with the boys again, watching a sixth episode in a row of Family Guy.
