The Robinson Boys:
Chapter 5:
“Sabwinaaaaaa!” Sammy whines, giving me puppy-dog eyes. I try not to give in, but Sammy is just too adorable and I finally gave him a cookie.
“Don’t tell your mommy or I will get in trouble.” I whisper in his ear and then he smirks.
“Mwommy! Sabwina gave me a cookie!” He exclaims and then runs off, leaving me open mouthed. Someone’s hands magically appear on my hips and then they rest their head on my shoulder.
“He’s a pain.” Xavier sighs, pulling me to his chest and tightening his grip on me. I make a face and pull away from him. “I should go before I get in trouble.” I whisper, blushing and feeling guilty. Jayden’s face comes to mind and I can’t help but let a tear fall down my cheek, forgetting that Xavier is standing right there watching me carefully.
I turn my head from him and wipe my tears away at the sound of Elizabeth’s feet clunking against the floor. Jayden… I need to see him. Elizabeth smiles at me knowingly as I pass her in the hallway, but she doesn’t scold me. I don’t realize Xavier following until my door closes behind me and he hugs me.
“Don’t be sad,” he says, embracing me with pity in his eyes. I shove him away. “Please leave, I need to call someone and it’s kind of private.” I say and he blinks in surprise at me.
“Um, okay, bye I guess.” He murmurs and then leaves my room looking confused and a little disappointed.
I take my phone off of its charger and dial the number that I know by heart. He picks up on the first ring.
“Sabrina,” he says, sounding relieved. I swallow.
“I’m sorry I didn’t say goodbye, my parents died in a car crash and they rushed me all the way to California…” I say, a tear running down my cheek.
“I’m coming over to see you,” he says.
“Don’t Jayden, wai-“ but it was too late, he had already hung up. That’s Jayden for you, he’s very stubborn. I smile at the thought of him coming over to see me. I know that he won’t be happy with me staying with all of the guys, but what can he do?
I run out of the room, excitement bubbling up inside of me. I feel happier than I have since I came here. I pass Campbell in the hallway and he gives me a weird look. I nearly knock Xavier down the stairs as I bolt into the kitchen, wanting to ask Elizabeth if it’s okay with her if Jay comes over to visit.
“Elizabeth!” I exclaim when I see her leaving the room, she stops mid-step and stares at me. I explain the whole situation and she smiles warmly at me.
“Of course he can come! Any friend of yours is welcome here!” She says, and then continues to walk into the living room. My phone buzzes and I slide it open.
Sorry, I can’t come yet, my mom said to wait two weeks  Jayden ;P I frown in disappointment at the text.
Okay… I guess I’ll see you then… I reply, my excitement turning into sadness. With a sigh I fall onto the couch next to Ted who ruffled my hair teasingly.
“Why the long face?” He asks, tossing some popcorn into his mouth as he watches a football game.
“My boyfriend can’t come over for two more weeks…” I sigh, leaning back and watching the game with him.
“You like football?” Xavier asks in disbelief when he walks in on me cheering on some random team that I don’t even like. I smile a fake smile up at him.
“I used to watch it with my dad a lot.” I reply, shrugging my shoulders as if it didn’t matter. But it does matter… Xavier’s eyes soften and he sits down next to me.
“Saaaabwwwwiiiinnnnnaaaaaa!” Sammy walks in, tears streaming down his cheeks. Xavier jumps up to see what’s wrong, but Sammy just pushes him away and crawls onto my lap. I hug him kiss his forehead.
“What’s wrong sweetie?” I ask, my voice gentle as he cries into my shoulder.
“I got a boo-boo!” He wails, holding up his finger which had a cut on it. I kiss it gently.
“I’ll fix it up,” I say, picking him up and walking to the bathroom. I put a band-aid on him and kissed his finger again. Sammy beamed up at me.
“I wuv you Sabwina!” He says, hugging me. I smile and can’t help but ‘aww’ at him. He hops off of the counter and runs out of the room giggling like mad. I chuckle and leave the room, coming face to face with Xavier.
He smiles up at me mischievously. “I have a boo-boo too!” He whines, jutting out his lip. Sammy walks up next to us.
“Sabwina will make it awlllllll bettew!” He exclaims happiness in his eyes. Xavier smirks at me and I let out a sigh.
“Where’s you boo-boo?” I ask and he points to his lips.
“I hurt my lips.” He states and Sammy smiles wider.
“Kiss it and make it feel better Sabwina!” Sammy exclaims and I look away, uncomfortable.
“No thanks,” I say, and then Sammy and Xavier start pouting.
“But Sabwina, you make tings feel bettew! You made my fingew feel bettew!” Sammy says and I look away from him to look at Xavier.
“Nope,” I say, ruffling Sammy’s and Xavier’s hair before leaving the hallway and escaping into my room.
“Thank God!” I exclaim, and then hear a chuckle. My head snaps over to my bed and I see someone I didn’t expect to ever see again.

You totally need to write more. This is an awesome book. I really want to know is Xavier loosens up around Sabrina's friends. I mean, he is really ruining the amazing relationship they could have. I want to know if they end up together, and what happens to Kate and Jayden??? Do they stay together, or does someone stab Kate? Does Jayden realize what the hell he lost? I mean, I absolutely love this book. I hope Sabri and Xavier end up together, and hope that Mason finds his perfect Gay friend.... (more »)

This is a graet idea for a story! I ilove it! But...you have a couple problems. Your voice and your pacing.


Voice: You write like you speak. Its conversational (which is great when interacting with your reader), but when you're telling us a story, conversation isn't as important as background. Dialogue is important, but where your characters are and who your characters are shuold never fall to the wayside.


Pacing: You're ex... (more »)
