"What's wrong?" I asked her.
"You know...Jensen and April" she replied, knowing I actually already know the answer.
"It'll all work out in the end; you'll see."
"I sure hope so."
"Huh?" I replied as her words snapped me out of my thoughts.
"Do you remember...this one guy...he looks like...?"
"Don't say it, don't say it, don't say it!"
"It...gives me nightmares."
"Do you think...?" Aurora said hesitantly.
"Jensen...? Jessalyn...?" Fallon replied. "No."
"How do we know he wasn't there?"
"Yes, but please don't tell anyone. I'll be a freak" she replied.
"You are a freak, but you're only my adorable little freak."
She flashed me a faint smile and I thought I saw something behind her...it looks somewhat like that old doll of hers. Can it even be possible?
"It could have been this close to turning Jessalyn silent like Tyle- oh, hey Tyler!" Fallon said and hoped I didn't hear what they were discussing.
I headed straight for the fridge to get my dinner and immediately headed out without as much as a glimpse at my triplets.
I went back to Jessalyn to eat my dinner; I would much rather eat with people who love me instead of being with triplets that think I'm insane. I know they do, and that's what I think of them.
"Don't push me, Tyler" she growled.
"Or what? Or you going to get a teddy to help you?"
"I might have been steering clear of you, and I might have been extremely nice to you to make your life easier, but I'm not taking your nonsense. Trust me, you don't want to get on my bad side."
"Stop right there!"
"Or what? Are you going to suck your thumb?"
"Talk to the hand, crazy! I know you're crazy, mom knows your crazy, your non-existant friends know your crazy...you have nowhere to run to, except of course your blankly!"
"This was the last straw, Tyler. I'm going to make your life miserable; it's going to stay miserable until somebody finally takes you to a house for wackoes."
With that, Aurora finally walked away.
Daddy said I aged up gracefully and destined for greatness. He said that, someday, I'll follow in his footsteps. He said that I'm not allowed to go somewhere he can't see me; he wants to keep tabs on me to keep me from going back...to somewhere.
"Come here!" he growled.
"No! Me no want to, no want!"
"You'll do what I say if you want to live."
His hand almost scared me to death as I didn't know what was going to happen next. His he going to hurt me? His he going to kill me? Or is he going to kiss me? This always happens to me, questions bubbling in my head.
"You're my little girl You're definitely...evil" he laughed evilly.
I gulped. Evil? No way!
"I did it, mommy, I did it!" she laughed.
"I'm so proud of you!"
"Me missed April."
"We all did, honey...we all did."
"Miss Lavender?" the police officer said.
"Yes, that's me" I replied.
"We've heard that little April has been returned to you, but unfortunately Mr Ackles is still missing."
"No...I'm sorry. He could be at your very house and we wouldn't know."
"Excuse me" I said, walking to where I heard the crash.
"Miss Lavender...is everything ok?"
"Hold on a minute. I heard something."
*Fallon's P.O.V.*I idled in front of the house for a few minutes and didn't know about mom yet, getting the twins' gift our great-aunt or someone sent, and then sprinted upstairs when I heard Tyler's shocked scream. Now I know something is wrong.
"Um...hi?" I called.
"Is someone there?" the voice came again and I realised it was the phone, picking it up to reply.
"Hiya!" I greeted.
"Who am I currently speaking to?"
"Fallon Lavender, Hayla Lavender's 18th baby."
"Oh, it's nice to meet you. Where's your mother?"
"Unconscious, now in bed after my sisters took her upstairs."
"I don't know. She was unconscious when we got here and there is no sign of forced entry."
"Do you have any suspicions of how it could have happened?"
"Just one...Jensen Ackles might have been here."
"Yes...we'll look into it. For now just keep all the doors and windows locked and don't go outside unless absolutely necessary."
"Are we going to be ok?"
"We'll do our best to protect your family."
All I could do was worry; with the stairs leading to mom's room behind me I just put my hand together and felt the tears begging to flow, but I wouldn't let them; I had to stay strong. I'm the oldest child in the house and I need to show the others we should be brave.
"Ugh, what now?" Aurora groaned.
"Me go cwazy- wazy!"
"We know that!"
"Crazy, crazy, CRAZY, crazy, crazy!"
"Whatever! Just SHUT UP!"
"With butter or egg?" Tyler laughed.
"You're going to be the death of me!"
"No, we don't have that. Something else?"
"No, we don't have that either."
"Why?" I replied.
"Jensen could be anywhere...he could be out to get you."
"I know that."
Yes, I knew that, but it didn't make it less scary. Being around Tyler made me scared; made me think of Jensen. I couldn't help it; I bolted out of the room before Tyler could say anything else.
We're running away, further away
We're running away, further away
So we might make it
You're comin' back, comin' back
Comin' back, but you just don't see it
I miss you!
I want my old Tyler back...Tyler, I...miss you.
Why does she have to be this way?
Just can't see it!
"Snuggles! Don't boo at my family!" Jessalyn scolded him.
Twisting inside, looking for shelter
It burns through each and every day
It takes my breath away
They ask too much of us, with them you always knew
Just wanna live our lives, you know we're trying to
It burns through each and every day
It takes my breath away
It takes my breath away...
I counted the steps up to my bed, hoping to find nothing except blankets there. Is wishing useless? Is hoping a waste of time?
I don't know. I don't know anything anymore. I'm starting to doubt...I'm starting to think what I see as a wonderful life is really a nightmare. A broken bed...not what I expected. A splintered wooden floor...flickering lights...
My head hit the pillow with a sudden thrust of energy. It wasn't me...I didn't do it. Someone hit me over the head, trying to get me out of the room and into the cool night air. But I'm not that vulnerable when I sleep. It's when I'm at my strongest.
She's the sweetest girl in the world! She never cries anymore and she's always in the best mood imaginable. What more could a mother and siblings want?
"Yes April?" she replied as I got ready to hurt her.
"Daddy says you stupid!"
"I don't listen to him. He's a little...crazy!"
"Me also think you stupid!!"
"Uh...goo goo...ga?" I quickly cooed, hoping she won't cry and punish me.
"You didn't know what you were saying, right darling?" She was pulling me into a comforting hug.
"Ah gooooo gaga!"
"I love you."
3 deadly words.
"Say vegetables" she said.
"Evil!" I yelled.
"Woo, woo!" I laughed, imagining I have love.
"Yes, come to me!"
"Wee, wee, wee!"
"Back, back, back!"
"No, it's too good. Nomnomnom. You wish you had one?"
"A gorgeous pig enjoying a hunky lollipop!"
"Oh, I'm so scared! As if" he mocked, knowing I can't do anything to him.
"Say fire" she said.
*Hayla's P.O.V.*Pixza), previously part of her Daniels legacy.
"The pleasure is all mine, Hayla. I've been following your challenge for a while now" he replied.
"So then...it would be an honour if you could be my next baby daddy?"
"Oh Hayla...I don't know."
"Come on Hayla, this isn't just asking me for a pencil or a shoelace...this is about a life or more."
"I know! And that's why I need you; that child need your hot genes.
"Well," he said flashing a smile at the camera, "I am hot."
"Well...sure, let me think about it."
"Thank you, thank you, thank you!" I exclaimed excitedly as I pulled him into an embrace.
"Sure thing!" I replied, just as Cadence walked past.
She didn't show it, but I knew she was happy. She was proud of me for continuing my challenge.
"Charming" I laughed, rolling my eyes.
Baby 22, Laika.
(Author's note: She's kinda a special baby, cuz my birthday is April 23rd, lol!)
"It's so much better than doing it in the bed, right Hayla?" Jarad laughed.
"Right" I said, not really listening, lost in my own thoughts.
Life...it goes on; whether we want it to or not. We have to face the cold, hard reality, with little chance of a good outcome. How will we survive?
Silence the cry, stepping back further
Escape from the mind, my mindTwisting inside, looking for shelter
That's probably what Jensen thought when he saw Jessalyn tonight; we were all worries about this, but she said she was just unloading. Our real problem is Jensen who was actually on the lot.
Jensen stalked April and Laika until the sun came up, hoping to see them again and get them to do what he had been planning ever since he told Hayla he wanted to be a part of her challenge.
"Leave me alone!" she sobbed.
"Why should I? You're just soooooo childish."
"You don't know what I've been through...I know things that'll make you cry at night...that'll make you cry at night...so don't mess with me!"
I quickly got out my toy, hoping it will calm me down.
"Don't worry toy, she won't hurt us!" I cried, half mockingly.
"I'm serious" April said icy.
"Do you know dad?"
"Well, I do. He'll stand by me, and make you cry. He's-"
"Daddy!" April called and ran into his arms.
"He pumpkin...did you succeed?"
"Almost. They still have too much spirit and hope."
"Uhhh...what are you 2 talking about?" I asked.
"She doesn't have a life...she has a mission" dad said.
"I have to break this family down and leave no hope for anyone."
"I returned her to let her start her mission."
"Yeah?" she whispered back.
They discussed everything in detail, I was sure, but I couldn't hear what they were saying. They pushed me away on purpose, trying to make me pay.
That's what I always hear. She just wants to get on everyone's good sides to break them down when the time is right, to get them to do whatever she wants. I'm going to stop her; she's not going to get away with this until they let me in on the plan.
"Aww, and I love you sweetie!" she replied.
"More than April?"
"Don't make me choose favourites, April!"
I was looking out of the window when I saw her rubbing her belly underneath the stars. Does this mean she's pregnant again?
Lastly baby 26, Ashlyn (thanks to KinztheSim), decided to make an appearance. Yeah baby, I made the quarter mark! :D
Sorry for the delay on this chapter. I wanted to get it out MUCH earlier but I was just too busy. Sorry! I hope this was worth the wait.
Oh, and the parts that are in italics are lyrics from random songs I thought was pretty fitting.
