Nevah's .P.O.V.

I needed to pick out something to wear. Something pretty that didn't show even a tiny bit of my bruises. But I didn't want it to be over the top. I went over to Alison and Ashly's apartment so I can ask Ashly to help pick out my outfit. I walked across the hall and knocked on the door. Ashly answered. "Hey Ashly." "Hey do you need anything?" "Yes. Can you help me pick out my outfit to go over to Kendall, James, Carlos and Logan's apartment?" "Yes absolutely. Do you want me to do your makeup too?" "Yeah sure." "Come in we'll get started right away. Alison's working on Lexi, she just needed to get some more of a specific makeup. I'll let her know not to do Lexi at your place and to call me when Lexi's done if she gets done first and if you get done first I'll call her.

~* 1 Hour Later *~

The outfit Ashly picked out for me consisted of a blue skirt that went just below my knees that was three shades of blue, a white blouse that had brassy/bronze colored buttons, a chic belt and leather sandals, my favorite pair of shoes I own. Since I was still sore from the bruises, Ashly was helping me get dressed. As she was getting my bra on, I flinched because of the bruises on my rib cage. "Ouch." "Are you alright?" Ashly asked. "I'm fine. You just touched one of my bruises." "I'm sorry. You should get those checked out." "Lexi said Logan wants to be a doctor, if he wasn't in the band. She also said he knows a lot about medical stuff, from broken bones to pregnancy."

"Well if you don't want to go to the doctor, you should have Logan look at you. Incase something is wrong or if you're hurt." "I'll have Lexi ask him with me." She finished getting me ready. Alison called Ashly saying that she was done getting Lexi ready. Alison came back to the apartment she shared with Ashly and I went back to the apartment I shared with Lexi. She was wearing a black and green sundress and black wedges.

"Hey Lexi." I said and waved. "Hey Nevah. Whats up?" "I have really bad bruises on my ribcage. Can you ask Logan to look at them with me?" "Sure. We need to make sure you don't have any broken ribs." I grabbed her hand and we knocked on the door of 2J.

Ms. Knight answered it. "Hi girls. James and Kendall are still getting ready and Carlos and Logan are in the living room. Diner Will be ready in around an hour." "Hello Ms. Knight. What's for dinner?" I asked. "Spaghetti."

We went into the living room. "Hi Logan." Lexi said. "Hi Lexi." Logan said. He had a look of love in his eyes. And also a look of sadness. "Logan, Nevah has a lot of bruises on her ribcage, from you know, can you look at them?" Lexi asked. "Sure." He looked at me. I waved shyly. "Let's go in my room."

He led me into the room he shared with Kendall. I could tell which side of the room belonged to each of them. His side had a lot of medical books and his bed had blue sheets. His side was closer to the door. Kendall's side of the room was super messy and his bed had purple sheets. Logan closed the door. "Sit down on my bed and I'll begin examining you." he said pointing to the bed.

I sat down on his bed. "Now if you please, take your shirt off so I can look at the bruises." I was a little nervous to this, as I was once raped. Twice. Once by Lexi's dad and once by some horrible man. Luckily I didn't get pregnant. I broke down into tears.

Logan's .P.O.V.

Nevah started crying. I grabbed her in my arms. She flinched. "Nevah whats wrong?" She spoke, stuttering. "I was once r-r-r-aped." Oh my god. She was sexually abused. That shouldn't happen to anyone. Tears welled in my eyes. I bit my lip and held them back. "Who did it?" "Lexi's father. And I was also raped by a criminal. He's in jail now though, but not Lexi's dad." she said very softly. I rubbed her back soothingly.

"Don't worry Nevah. I would never do anything like that to you. To anyone." "Never ever?" she asked timidly. "Never ever. I'm not horrible like that." I wiped her tears away. "Is it alright if I look at your bruises now?" she nodded. She slowly unbuttoned her shirt. It was clear that she was in pain. "Those bruises look really bad." "They are."

I pressed down on one of the bruises so I could see if she had any broken ribs. She winced and teared up. I didn't even need to ask if it hurt. I checked the other bruises. She might have a few broken ribs. "You might have a few broken ribs. I need to bandage them to protect from further injury. But to do that you need to take off you bra. Is that alright? If not I can deal with it." She hesitated and then answered. "Yes."

I guess she got over her fear of me, considering what happened earlier. And since I want to be a doctor, she knew I was just trying to help her. She was like a dear that you're trying to get used to humans enough to rehabilitate it. Or trying to get it fully used to humans if it can't go back into the wild. Scared and afraid at first, but then they slowly warm up. As I bandaged her, I had to try hard not to stare. She's beautiful, but I genuinely love Lexi, not just because of looks.

After I bandaged her, she put her bra and shirt back on. "Do you like Lexi?" Nevah asked me. "I don't just like her, I love her." "Promise you won't say anything to the others, but I also love Lexi. Not just as a friend. I'm not lesbian, but I'm bi. So is Lexi." "I won't say anything. And if she ends up with you, I won't not be friends with you anymore." "Same if she ends up with you." Nevah said. She smiled at me.

We walked out of my room just as finished dinner. I sat down at the table. Kendal, James, and Carlos shot me a look. I'll have to explain later. As she ate her spaghetti, Nevah was graceful. She didn't get any food on herself or the table. Kendall and the rest of the guys actually behaved. I guess since they were in the presence of girls. Though they're a little less childish than when we first came out here, they still have those times when they fight about stupid things.

Nevah's .P.O.V.

We were all sitting around the table chatting and eating dinner. Ms. Knight is a good cook. "This spaghetti is wonderful. Best I've ever tasted." I told Ms. Knight. "Thank you." she smiled. I held Lexi's hand under the table. She didn't pull away. Kendall looked at me and I knew he saw my hand on Lexi's. I smiled at him. He smiled back.

His smile. God it kills me. I love him, but not as much as Lexi. After dinner, it was time for me, Lexi, Ashly, Alison and Sarah to go back to our apartments. Each of said goodbye to the boys and Katie and Ms. Knight Ashly hugged James first, Alison hugged Carlos first, Lexi hugged Logan first, and I hugged Kendall first. When I got to Ms. Knight, I gave her a kinda tight hug for how kind she's been to us and everything. Like a mother. She seemed surprised at first, but then she relaxed.

Me and Lexi went back to our apartments. I took the makeup off my face, took a quick shower and put on my pajamas a pair of sweat pants and and old undershirt that is short on me. I walked of my room and walked into Lexi's. She was reading a book, so she didn't see me walk in. I laid down on her bed. She turned to face me.

"Hey girlie." "Hi Lexi. What are reading?" "I'm reading Harry Potter and The Order of The Phoenix. Harry Potter is the best book series ever. I'm about to go to the bed since we need to be at the studio at 9:00 tomorrow morning." "I was about to go to bed to." "Can you lay with me?" "Yes." Lexi marked her page and turned off the light. We burrowed under the covers and laid close to each other.

Lexi woke me up. "It's 8:30. We have 30 minutes to be at the studio." "Ok." We were just about to get dressed when we herd a knock at the door. I opened it. It was Alison and Ashly with Sarah. They walked in.

I went to get dressed. I was wearing a purple sparkle top and my favorite pair of skinny jeans, along with my light purple converse. Lexi came out of her bedroom. She was wearing a light grey t-shirt, light washed skinny jeans, and black converse. "We're ready!" We shouted to Alison and Ashly.

We went to the boys apartment. made pancakes. We quickly sat down for breakfast. After that we left to go to the studio.

When we got there, Gustavo was like "Who are those people? And why is there a puppy here?" Kendall said he's always like this. And he calls Kendall, James, Carlos and Logan dogs. "These are your new female singers." James said introducing us. "And Alison and Ashly's little sister Sarah. She's five years old." "Well okay for the rabbits. But the puppy shouldn't really be here."

"Okay, who's going first in the recording booth for demos?" Gustavo asked. "We are." Ashly said and grabbed Alison's wrist.

Four years old, with our backs to the door. All we could hear was the family war. Your Selfish hands always expecting more. Are we your children or just Charity wards?

You have a hallowed heart but it's heavy in your chest. We try so hard to fight it, but it's hopeless, hopeless you're hopeless. Oh father, please father we'd love to leave you alone, but we can't let you go. Oh father, please father put the bottle down for the love of your daughters. oh.

It's been five years since we've spoken last. And you can't take back what we never had. Oh we can be manipulated only so many times. Before even I love you starts to sound like a lie. You have a hallowed out heart but it's heavy in your chest. We try so hard to fight it, but it's hopeless, you're hopeless.

Oh father, please father we'd love to leave you alone but we can't let you go. Oh father, please father put the bottle down for the love of your daughters. Don't you remember we're you baby girls. How could you push us out of your world? Lie to you flesh and your blood. Put your hands on the ones you swore you loved. Don't you remember we're your baby girls? How could you throw us right out of your world?

So young when the pain had begun. Now forever afraid of being loved. Oh father, please father we'd love to leave you alone, but we can't let you go. Oh father, please father put the bottle down for the love of your daughters. For the love of your daughters.

No One's .P.O.V.

Alison and Ashly had tears running down their faces as they finished the song. James and Carlos wished they could just take their pain away and fix their hearts.

Ashly's .P.O.V.

"Okay so we need demos of you guys by yourselves and then we need demos of the other girls." Gustavo said.

"Can I go first?" I asked. "Yeah sure. What song are you going to sing?" "Is it alright if I sing the non-duet version of For The Love of A Daughter. I love that song and I think it showcases some of my vocal skills." I said to him. "I guess it's alright." "Thank you Gustavo." "Your Welcome. Ok let's start." I put my headphones back on and started to sing.

Four years old, with my back to the door. All I could hear was the family war. Your Selfish hands always expecting more. Am I your child or just a Charity ward?

You have a hallowed heart but it's heavy in your chest. I try so hard to fight it, but it's hopeless, hopeless you're hopeless. Oh father, please father I'd love to leave you alone, but I can't let you go. Oh father, please father put the bottle down for the love of a daughter. oh.

I had tears running down my face again as I finished the song. "Ok that's a wrap." Gustavo said. I walked out of the booth. James embraced me and held me tight while I cried. Alison walked into the booth.

Alison's .P.O.V.

I walked into the booth and put the headphones on. "What are you going to sing?" "Help. Classic rock." I started singing.

Help, I need somebody. Help, not just anybody. Help, you know I need someone, help.

When I was younger, oh so much younger than today, I never needed anybody's help in any way. But now these days are gone. I'm not so self-assured. Now I find I've changed my mind and opened up the doors.

Help me if you can, I'm feeling down. And I do appreciate you being 'round. Help me, get my feet back on the ground. Won't you please, please help me.

And now my life has changed in oh so many ways. My independence seems to vanish in the haze. But every now and then I feel so insecure. i know that I just need you like I've never done before.

Help me if you can, I'm feeling down. And I do appreciate you being 'round. Help me, get my feet back on the ground. Won't you please, please help me.

"Ok. Got it." Gustavo said. I took the headphones off and walked out of the booth. It might've just been the song, but I was feeling energized. I walked over to Carlos and gave him a hug. We started talking.

Nevah's .P.O.V.

I slinked out of Kendall's arms and walked into the booth. "What are you singing?" Gustavo asked. "According to you. I would like to dedicate the bad parts to my dad and the good parts to Kendall, James, Carlos, Logan, Ms. Knight Katie, and the 3 people that are the reason I am here today, Alison, Ashly and Lexi." I said, tearing up a little bit. everyone looked at me, and the boys had sympathetic smiles on their face, and the girls smiled at song started.

According to you, I'm stupid, I'm useless, I can't do anything right. According to you, I'm difficult, hard to please, forever changing my mind. I'm a mess in a dress, can't show up on time, even if it would save my life. According to you, according to you.

But according to him, I'm beautiful incredible, he can't get me out of his head. According to him, i'm funny, irresistible, everything he ever wanted. Everything is opposite, I don't feel like stopping it. So baby tell me what I got to lose. He's into everything I'm not. According to you.

According to you, I'm boring, I'm moody, you can't take me any place. According to you, I suck at telling jokes cause I always give it away. I'm the girl with the worst attention span, you're the boy who puts up with it. According to you. According to you.

But according to him, I'm beautiful incredible, he can't get me out of his head. According to him, i'm funny, irresistible, everything he ever wanted. Everything is opposite, I don't feel like stopping it. So baby tell me what I got to lose. He's into everything I'm not. According to you.

I need to feel appreciated, like I'm not hated. oh no. Why can't you see me through his eyes. Too bad cause you're making me dizz-ay.

According to me, you're stupid, you're useless, you can't do anything right. But according to him, I'm beautiful incredible, he can't get me out of his head. According to him, i'm funny, irresistible, everything he ever wanted. Everything is opposite, I don't feel like stopping it. So baby tell me what I got to lose. He's into everything I'm not. According to you. [you you] According to you. [you you]

According to you, I'm stupid, I'm useless, I can't do anything right.

I felt a rush of energy as I finished the song. Kendall and Logan smiled at me. "Ok, Lexi's next. And then I need Lexi and Nevah need to do a duet and all of you girls need to sing a song together." Gustavo said. I walked out of the booth and went back to Kendall. He embraced me. I gladly returned the hug. After that I went and hugged Logan.

Lexi's .P.O.V.

I walked into the booth. "What song are you going to sing?" Gustavo asked. "Because of You. Before I start, I would like to dedicate this song to my father, he was the person who made me afraid to love." I said, tearing up a little bit.

[oh oh mhm] I will not make the same mistakes you did. I will not let myself cause my heart so much misery. I will not break the way you did. You fell so hard. I've learned the hard way, to never let it get that far.

Because of you, I'll never stray too far from the sidewalk. Because of you, I learned to play on the safe side so I don't get hurt. Because of you, I find it hard to trust. Not only me, but everyone around me. Because of you, I am afraid.

I lose my way. And it's not too long before you point it out. I cannot cry, because I know that's weakness in your eyes. I'm forced to fake a smile, a laugh. Every day. My heart can't possibly break, when it wasn't even whole to start with.

Because of you, I'll never stray too far from the sidewalk. Because of you, I learned to play on the safe side so I don't get hurt. Because of you, I find it hard to trust. Not only me, but everyone around me. Because of you, I am afraid.

I watched you die, I heard you cry. Every night in your sleep. I was so young. You should have known better than to lean on me. You never thought of anybody else. You just saw your pain. And now I cry in the middle of the night for the same damn thing.

Because of you, I'll never stray too far from the sidewalk. Because of you, I learned to play on the safe side so I don't get hurt. Because of you, I tried my hardest just to forget everything. Because of you, I don't know hard to let anyone else in. Because of you, I'm ashamed of my life because it's empty. Because of you, I am afraid. Because of you, because of you.

No one's .P.O.V.

Lexi had tears running down her face as she stopped singing. She walked out of the booth. Logan gently embraced her. She hugged him back without hesitating. "Alright. We're done for the day. I'll get Lexi and Nevah singing a duet and all of you girls singing a song together tomorrow." Gustavo said. The girls thanked him and then walked out of the recording studio with Kendall, James, Carlos, Logan and Sarah.

Ashly's .P.O.V.

Me and Alison went back to our apartment to get changed and lay Sarah down for a nap. Nevah and Lexi also went to their apartment. Before we went in our apartment, James gave me a hug and kissed me on the cheek.
