cody and his family

Something horrible is happening on youtube

I’m going to preface this post with a content warning. This post is about child abuse. The video I’m going to link includes actually video footage of child abuse. It is one of the most upsetting videos I have ever watched. My post includes in depth descriptions of child abuse. 

This morning I watched a Youtube video discussing and highlighting what is happening on another Youtube channel. If you have the stomach for it, I’d suggest watching the video because Phillip DeFranco does a much better job of summarizing the situation than I can. 

For those of you who can’t watch, I’ll give you a very brief rundown. 

The Youtube channel DaddyOfFive is a combination family vlog and prank channel. In a recent video, the parents pull a prank where they pour invisible ink on one of the kid’s floors and then make him think that they believe he poured ink all over the floor. They scream and swear at this little boy, shouting things like “What the fuck did you do?” while the boy cries and cowers, looking genuinely terrified. Even the best child actors could not pull off looking as genuinely devastated as this child does. 

As DeFranco highlights in his video, although all the children are pranked, it seems that this one child (Cody) takes the brunt of the cruelty. In many videos he is seen being hit, kicked, pushed, and pinned down by his older siblings. In one video his father pushes him face first into a book case. In one video Cody begs his family to stop, saying that he’s tired of this. In another video his parents scream at him and tell him he’s the only one in the family who can’t “take a joke”. 

In response to some of the flak they have been getting, the parents uploaded a video about “Blocking All The Haters”. They goad the children into saying on camera that they aren’t being abused. Now keep in mind, the kids have been told that all the “Cool stuff” they have been getting is because of the Youtube channel. They know that if the pranks stop, the cool stuff goes away. Most of the children chime in that they are not being abused. Cody hardly says anything. The oldest boy says, “At least you aren’t beating us”. 

What is happening to Cody is child abuse. It is emotional, psychological and physical abuse. It is torture. And the worst part of it all is that it is monetized. The parents are being paid by advertisers to abuse this child under the guise of “It’s just a prank, bro”. 

So what can we do?

First of all, we can report the videos on DaddyOfFive’s channel for containing depictions of child abuse. If you decide to help by doing this, please be sure to flag the specific instances of abuse such as Cody being pushed or the parents screaming vulgarities at the children. 

Second of all, we can let the companies advertising on this channel know that we won’t be buying anything from a company that sponsors videos of child abuse. 

Finally, if anyone knows this family in person, they can make a report to CPS. Now the family is claiming that they’ve already been investigated and “cleared” by CPS, but that’s not how this works. Repeated reports mean repeated investigations. You do not give up and look the other way when a child is being abused just because CPS failed to act the first time. When my neighbors were abusing their children, I had to call CPS every week for over a month before something was done. Don’t give up.

What I don’t understand about the whole DaddyOfFive thing is how his channel is even popular in the first place. Like what kind of psychopaths think it’s fun and enjoyable to watch children in distress and pain? In the absolute best case scenario he’s only pretending to abuse his kids for views, which I honestly don’t think is much better than if he’s actually abusing them. “Hey look Cody is being horribly bullied by his entire family but it’s just pretend haha isn’t that hilarious!?!?”

First thing that comes to Deran’s mind after thinking about the weeks in Belize with Adrian = getting rid of the inconvenient new boyfriend

Paul Walker with his brothers Cody and Caleb Walker

“Paul was very aware of how blessed he was, and how fortunate he was, and his successes, and he never forgot that, which is why you’ve only ever heard good things about my brother. Is because he was that guy. He was a very down to earth individual. He never got lost in the glamour, or the celebrity that he was. And he would oftentimes look back at himself and wonder “What the hell am I doing? There are so many people who are less fortunate, there’s so much work that needs to be done out there."” - Cody Walker (x)

Finding Home- Excerpt

Rex stopped in front of a tent, which Cody assumed belonged to the ex-captain. From inside, the sound of talking and quiet singing could be heard and Cody was suddenly anxious, excited, and even a little nervous to go in. Maybe there were brothers inside! Or… or maybe Rex had a family. Maybe he…had children and…a wife. At that thought, Cody became less excited and more nervous.

Rex turned to him and said, “Listen, uh, Cody. Things have changed and uh, well, I just don’t want you to be too surprised by… anything that you see…”

So, he did have a family. Cody tried to look neutral about it, or at least not upset, but couldn’t stop the wave of emotion that overcame him. All these years, Rex had been here, with his brothers, with a family, while Cody had been so, so alone.

After a moment, Cody put a hand on Rex’s shoulder and nodded. Rex pulled aside the flap and gestured that Cody should enter.  

Standing up, the first thing he saw were the children. There were five of them, three boys and two girls. As soon as they saw that he wasn’t their father, two of the boys, the eldests he guessed, stood up with hard looks on their faces, almost exactly the same look, he realized, that Rex had made when intimidating shinies during the War. But a moment later, when Rex entered and secured the flap behind him, the boys became relaxed and their scowls turned into smiles. The youngest girl, who appeared to be about a year or so old, was laying next to her older sister wrapped in blankets, most likely to keep out the chill, with only her face showing. She made an excited sound, that didn’t quite sound human, and reached for her father. Rex took her into his arms and kissed her, and then proceeded to tickle her sides, making her squeal in joy. Cody stared at his brother and the baby.

She was obviously a hybrid. Her skin was dark, but whether it was red or brown, he could not tell, not in the low lighting, and her lekku and montrals explained the high pitch of her cry. Looking at the other children, he saw that two of the boys, although they looked human enough, had splotches of…. was it orange? He couldn’t see it very well, but it was obvious that they took after their father, with dark curly hair and tan skin, the older with Rex’s brown eyes, but the younger of the two had blue eyes…

But the last two children did not have the dark skin with patches of color. The boy had blue eyes, a lighter blue than that of the younger boy. His hair was a light color, like Rex’s. He was sitting across from the flap, next to the older girl. She had nut brown hair, with big brown eyes that watched him curiously. Her skin was flawlessly white. She was quite pretty.

Rex cleared his throat, and said, “Ade, this is ner vod, Cody.”

The younglings looked at him shyly.

Rex looked to his brother and said, “Luke is the blonde, and that’s his twin sister Leia, with the brown hair.”

She gave him a smile, while her brother nodded in greeting. Rex continued introducing his other children, starting with the little girl in his arms, “This is Maisha, our, ah, newest addition.”

The child looked at him, then was overcome with shyness and hid her face in her father’s neck. Cody couldn’t help the small twitch of his lips that looked suspiciously like a smile.

“That’s Kebiin there next to Luke,  and the little one with the blue eyes is Izaak.”

Kebiin looked to be Luke and Leia’s age, about ten, while Izaak looked to be about five.

Rex looked around the cozy tent, then turned to his children and asked, “Where’s your Ma?”

Luke replied, sitting back on his haunches. “She went to see Ba’vodu Catanni. And don’t worry, we made sure she took Kip with her.”

“Good. She shouldn’t be walking all alone at night. She say when she’d be back?”

“Should be anytime now, Buir.”

Rex nodded his understanding and made his way over to his eldest daughter. He shifted the little girl to his other arm, while Izaak jumped on his father’s leg. Rex lifted him up with one arm, and Cody figured that his brother was still fighting fit, according to the old GAR standards. The ex-captain was busy bouncing his two little ones, which made them errupt in shrieks and giggles.

Rex chuckled along with them, then put Izaak down and sat down next to Leia. She was stirring a pot of what appeared to be stew. Rex motioned for Cody to sit down. Cody took a seat across the fire from his brother, but not too close to Kebiin or Izaak. Rex started to stroke the little girl’s lekku, making her snuggle further into her father’s arms.


So, what do you think? Anybody interested in hearing the rest? 


So I just wanted to make sure that people know That I have posted the first four chapters of Finding Home. I’m not sure everybody has, since this excerpt literally has three times as many notes. I just want to make sure everybody can get a chance to see the rest of the story. So, yeah, that’s all. Have a good day!

anonymous asked:

Can you do a cute Bughead fluff where they're married and have a toddler and have a cute family day and the toddler says "Mommy" and "Daddy" a lot! Sorry this prompt is so confusing😂

***
“Cody! That’s such a good boy! Momma is so proud of you!” Betty bounced her one year old son on her knees, kissing his cheeks and smearing the banana all over her own face.

Jughead walked downstairs, leaning against the doorframe and smiling at his little family.

“What are we proud of today?” He asked, surprising Betty and causing her to whip towards him, lifting up Cody and holding him out to Jughead

“He ate a whole banana! The whole thing! He was a hungry little bug today!” She looked down lovingly at the baby in her arms. He pressed a pudgy hand to her cheek and beamed

“Momma” he giggled. Betty nuzzled his hand and nipped at it, causing him to break into laughter.

Sometimes Jughead thought his life was too good to be true, he had the most patient, kind, beautiful wife in the world and his son was his pride and joy. He was such a good boy, he hardly ever cried and Cody loved his family, his mother was the light of his life and he looked at his father like he hung the moon, no one except Betty had ever looked at him like that and It was one of his proudest accomplishments. The dark haired, twenty five year old had published three New York Times best sellers and was on Peoples “top 20 men to look out for” list, Betty owned her very own Veterinary clinic in Riverdale and was one of the most prominent features in the tiny town, she put together bake sales for the elementary school, was head of the Riverdale Big Brother Association, and she was the co-chaperone of The Blue and Gold, next to Jughead of course.

“Momma! momma!” He looked over to see Cody sitting on the floor clapping his hands in his play pen while Betty arranged his toys and ruffled his mop of dark hair.

“Momma has to wash off all this banana, as yummy as it is, I’ve got a hot date with a golden retriever this afternoon and the only messy kisses I want today are from my two favorite guys.” She winked at her husband as she headed for the kitchen.

At the mention of Golden Retriever, a mess of white fur flew past Jughead and nudged at Betty’s legs

“Hi hotdog, good morning. Now you wanna be friends? Last night you only wanted to cuddle with daddy, I see how it is! You only want me for my banana!” She scratched behind his ears.

“Daddy!” Jughead tore his eyes away from his perfect wife and looked to his son

“Hi bubba.” He picked up Cody and smiled as his son dropped his head to his neck, “tired?” He asked as Cody nodded , before pulling his head away “daddy.” He said seriously. Jughead had to bite his lip to keep from cracking up. Cody only knew the words “yes, momma, daddy and Hadag(hotdog)” but that didn’t stop the one year old from having some pretty serious conversations with his parents.

“Yes of course, that makes perfect sense.” He nodded. satisfied, Cody nudged gently as Jughead placed him back in his pen, turning to walk away he heard the tiny little voice, exasperated, “daddy!”

Jughead turned around and smiled adoringly
“Of course how could I forget.” He bent down and placed a kiss to Codys forehead. The little boy grinned up at him before hollering
“HADAG!”

The big pile of fluff came forward and licked the babies face causing him to squeal in excitement. Jughead smiled and rubbed the dogs nose “good boy.” He whispered before heading into the kitchen, walking Over to Betty and wrapping his arms around her waist
“Good morning Juliet.”

She turned slightly in his arms and smiled up at him
“Good morning handsome.”

He placed a kiss to her neck and smiled when he felt her visibly shiver, even after four years of marriage they were still as in love as they were when they were sixteen.
“I thought you had today off?” He whispered as she turned in his arms, wrapping her hands around his neck “I did, but Moose And Diltons golden Retriever apparently has a cold and they called the clinic last night, I swear Juggie, it was like the stress of this dogs cold was enough to drive them to divorce, I’d like to prevent that.” She cringed at the memory of Dilton screaming and Moose practically in tears.

“Thank goodness they don’t have a baby.” He snorted, pushing a strand of blonde hair from her eyes.

“Hey, I wouldn’t say anything mister, remember when Cody got his first bloody nose? You made your dad spend the night because you were afraid neither of us would be able to drive Cody to the hospital.” She raised a brow as he blushed.

“It was horrifying and we were both in hysterics.” He shrugged.

“And I love you for it.” She pressed a kiss to her husbands lips and his hands tightened around her waist. “What do you say we drop Cody off at my mothers tonight? Polly said jay jay has been dying to see his little cousin again and I’ve been dying to try a new recipe, what do you think?” She dropped her lips below his ear and he groaned audibly
“Sounds like a very very good plan.“he whispered, picking her up and dropping her on top of the counter, his lips attacking hers as her hands tugged at his hair.

"Momma, Daddy!” The tiny voice broke them out of their bubble and Betty hopped down.

“To be continued” she giggled, winking as Jughead smiled dopily, leaning against the counter and sending a quick Thankyou to whatever being up above had let him have this life.

anonymous asked:

Okay okay I know this is gonna sound weird, but sometimes I imagine what it would be like for au characters to be suddenly dropped in the cannon verse. Can you imagine Cody waking up with his entire family calling themselves brothers and being in a military IN SPACE and his fucking husband having mystical Force powers and NOT being his husband. Can you imagine Ashoka waking up and NOT EVEN BEING HUMAN OMG

Not weird at all, I actually do that ALL THE TIME :’D I love dreaming up scenarios for people falling from canon into AUs and vice versa, or meeting their other selves.

Cody the Alien Robot Therapist

Okay, hands up, how many of you were wondering when Blurr would finally give in to Cody and his adorableness? Really, have you noticed EVERY BOT that ever shows up on Griffin Rock likes him? And treats him differently than his family.

Cody was able to get Heatwave to stay after only a few hours. Heatwave, the bot that is gruff and cranky and stubborn has NO TROUBLE asking Cody to help fix their problem with Blades and the scoop claw? And goes along with Cody’s ideas of “bonding” and the movie in the episode The Alien Invasion of Griffin Rock. And he is worried about Cody in the second episode! And he is the first to try to help Cody with his Lad Pioneer merit project and TELLS THE OTHERS SO THEY CAN HELP TOO!!! And do NOT forget how adorable Heatwave was with trying to help Cody in Countdown and The Lost Bell! And! And! Remember the scene in Changes when he says he might already be late in meeting Optimus, their LEADER, and the one he had wanted to be on a team with. And yet says he might have time to drive him to school?

Didn’t take long for that adorable little cinnamon bun to crawl his way into Heatwave’s heart/spark, huh? The other three were so much easier, especially Blades and Boulder. (Psst, head canon that Cody was the one that bought Boulder’s first set of art supplies) Optimus seems to respect him and all that he does to help the rescue bots. And Bumblebee must be happy he has another human that can understand him, right? And Salvage bonded quickly with Cody. But Blurr?

Blurr spends time saying he’s a “loner” and “doesn’t fit in”. And yet there was concern on his part when he learned Cody had been in danger? And relief when he was safe? And when he says that everyone would have been surprised if he had gone to rescue everyone from the falling satellite (before actually doing it), but then says the “kid” wouldn’t have been surprised. I squealed. I really did and my mom looked at me like I was insane! And the fact that, when Optimus said Blurr and Salvage would be rescue bots somewhere else, Blurr comforted the “stubborn human”.

*sighs happily but then freezes*

WAIT! I forgot about Hightide! Optimus RECOMMENDED that he take CODY along over any of the others! Optimus KNEW Cody would help change the grumpy bot. Hightide went from “I don’t want anything to do with humans and you are an annoying little blip” to “Here, have a dog Cody”.

I wonder if Optimus will continue to send bots that need a bit of “attitude adjustment” to Griffin Rock so that Cody could set them straight. I hope Cody is getting paid for all the therapy he seems to do for autobots. ANd maybe one will stay to be his partner? *crosses fingers*

This picture surfaced online of Cody Rhodes at the funeral of Elijah Mainville. Elijah was Cody’s friend, and became known to the wrestling world as future WWE Superstar Drax Shadow. Rhodes cancelled 5 European dates and missed out on potentially thousands of dollars to pay his respects to Mainville and his family.

Good guy Cody, indeed. Rest in peace, Elijah.

Don’t fear the darkness, fear the Shadow!

Days ago i hear about something so awful call it “Daddyofive” so far i know the boy Cody is now safe with his real mother and a real family, but i see the videos and man, i feel so powerless watching how the “dad” (If we can call him like that) tortures and make awful pranks to his kid and everybody make fun of that, i made this parody to portrait how the things was, the good side is how i said was the boy Cody is now ok and in a safe place, im so glad for that. For the parents specially Mike i hope you get punched in the streets.

anonymous asked:

(continuing the story about Cody and the bubble wrap) the deputy came and was all "can i even arrest someone for wearing bubble wrap?" and the teacher was like "just do it anyway" so they arrested cody and then later codys parents threatened to sue the school because they can't arrest someone for wearing bubble wrap and there was a huge drama thing going on between the school and his family and then one day cody disappeared and we haven't heard from him or his family since

okayokayokay thats just crazy how is wearing bubble wrap a crime in any way and WTF HAPPENED TO CODY AND HIS FAM oh my god

Dan x Reader - Request: Date At The Emergency Room

REQUEST / PROMPT : dan howell x reader where they go out on a date night and they leave their son with a babysitter. and later in the date the get a call that their child is in the hospital ? (anon message)


Dan x Reader
Date At The Emergency Room

It’s around 6 o'clock right now and I’m getting ready to go out with Dan. We’re going to a restaurant in somewhere in central London, while our lovely son, Cody, is staying home with a babysitter. Usually we’d have Cody go over to Phil’s, but he was busy with his own family life so Dan called over Maddie, a teaching assistant at the daycare near us. Cody wasn’t in daycare yet, but he was nearing school age, four years old. He was cute and bubbly, with slight wave in his lighter hair, and brown big eyes just like his father’s.
“Alright Cody, we’ll be back soon. Be good alright?” I heard Dan say while walking through the hallway, as I smiled softly. The reflection in my mirror of a 6'3 man bending down to a 3 foot little boy is adorable. I heard giggles from Cody with his light brown nearly blonde getting ruffled by his dad’s big giant hand. Dan was an amazing dad and he always wanted to take of everything.

“I ate the mashed potatoes daddy!” He shouted happily to Dan’s laughter.
“Oh did you? Good job!” Dan says enthusiastically as I begin applying the last of my lipgloss and mascara.
Ah, perfect. I get up from the vanity and straighten out my white dress with gold embroidery and head towards the living room. I walk in and Dan’s almost ready in a white textured dress shirt and dress pants, looking good with his hair still in hobbit form, but not its too curly today. He’s watching over little Cody simultaneously eating his carrots looking at a cartoon. Dan hears me approach and turns around, smiling wide. I mouth a “hi” while Dan snakes his hand over my waist, laying his head behind my neck.

Cody then turns around looking at me and exclaims “You look so pretty mommy!” I laugh and thank him.
“Thank you!”
“I agree.” Dan whispers in my ear, making me slightly pink. 
“C'mon then, finish these little carrots before Maddie gets here.” Dan tells Cody looking at the clock which is nearing 6:45PM to when Maddie is coming over. 
Dan was always helpful and authoritative with Cody, but he absolutely adored him. The two are constantly hanging out and they’ve both been accustomed to it ever since Cody was born. Cody and Dan were so close, that I couldn’t imagine anything different. Not to mention, Dan seriously would literally do anything and everything for me and or Cody. He constantly wanted to make it easy for me and I loved him for it, although I do tell him not to do everything for me and relax, but he loves it.


I tell Dan to finish up getting ready and I’ll watch Cody while we wait for Maddie. He agrees and goes up to straighten his hair. The doorbell rings as I put on my heels and Cody runs over in my arms.

“Ahhh.” He sighed laughing falling onto my legs.
“Ooof. Cody I have to open the door.” I pull the little boy up as he continued to happily hum. I open the door to see Maddie, a woman in her early twenties with dirty blonde hair and hazel eyes.
“Hi there!” She says sweetly looking down at an excited Cody.
“Nice to see you again.” I tell her welcoming her inside.
After talking to her for about five minutes, I see Dan walk downstairs with our coats in hand and ready to go.
“Hey Maddie.” He says nicely as she greets him and he begins to tell her about contacting, details, when we’ll be back, what Cody likes to watch, etcetera. forgetting that I just did that. Dan always wants to be prepared, bless him.
“Dan, it’s fine I just told her earlier.” I reassure him. Maddie and I share a laugh at a slightly embarrassed Dan.
“Oh, well I think we’re good to go now then.” Dan says picking up Cody in a big hug while I kiss his cheek.
“Bye Cody, love you.” The four year old kisses the both of us back and waves goodbye as we say, “Be good!” The door shuts behind us and Dan hands me my cream coat, while putting his black coat on over his formal outfit, and we go into the taxi.


Pre Meal Conversation:
Dan orders a cocktail and I have glass of champagne, as we wait for our food to arrive. 

“I can’t believe Cody’s almost going to be in school already.” Dan says taking a little sip of his beverage. 
I nod, “He’s growing up insanely quick.”
“He’ll nearly be close to Aaron’s age. Phil says age six is really fun, it was with Fay too.” Dan tells me while I float into another mouthful of my drink.
“I seriously love him though. Thank you y/n.” Dan looks at me thankfully as I just smile at him.

A Conversation During Dinner:
“I seriously like the aesthetic of white buildings, like the ones in Brighton homes. But London just calls to me…” I say with my mind on a ramble of pretty exterior.
“Well duh. London is like the place for sleek, modern, cool aesthetics. Yet, it still sort of has that old historic feel.” Dan agrees. 
“But like which one is is better?” I wonder while taking a bite from my pasta. 
“I don’t know…” Dan says deep in thought just like me, but a bit more focused on his steak and shrimp meal.

It’s now 8:30, and we’ve have finished with our meal and there’s a small lingering piece of my desert but Dan’s is gone. The night was really nice, and it was a good meal. Conversations ranged from media management to color schemes and of course, the occasional sarcasm that came with Dan. With the last sip of our alcoholic beverages being finished awhile ago, it nearly being 9PM we head out hand in hand. Both of our coats were on warmly in the brisk fall of England with Dan arm draped around mine, while the two of us walked together relaxingly.
Our taxi wasn’t coming for another couple minutes so we wandered around in the streetlight of London.
“This is so nice. Thank you for being incredible.” I tell Dan smiling into those deep brown eyes looking over at me. 
“Of course. I love you y/n.” Dan says kissing my forehead but before I can say anything in return, his phone begins to ring. 


“Hello?” I heard a female voice on the other line, as Dan kept rapidly saying yes. 
What is it? They both sounded alarmed and Dan anxious. What is going on? 
“Oh my— okay yes, we’ll be there ASAP.” Dan’s now pulled away from our embrace and looks startled before hanging up. “Dan what was that about?” I ask him worriedly, he mutters sadly “Cody.” 
I see the grimace on his face and confusion begins to rush through my veins.
“Cody? What about Cody? Oh my- is he okay? Dan!” I say panicking.
“That was Maddie, Cody’s at the hospital we need to get there now.” Dan said trying to draw the tone of his voice to tenseness from worry. 
Right now, I didn’t have time to react and be scared and worry, there was going to be enough time for that later. I just needed to think fast and concisely,
“What happened?” I asked sounding a bit more scared than I wanted.
“He fell and some hot water fell onto him, causing burns. They’re currently checking to see what they can do.” Dan said while the taxi car pulled up to us on the road. He opened the door quickly for me and we both jumped in.


As Dan was telling the driver the change of address, I was having a mild freak out. Cody, is he alright? I wonder if he’s crying right now, but how did he even manage to fall? Was he alone with the doctors? Will he be able to recover? Was it his arm, leg or both? Did he know we were on our way? These thoughts swirled around my head, and I felt Dan put a tight grip on my hand placed in between the seat of the car. I’m guessing he heard me muttering to myself somewhat, since he whispered “I don’t know.” responding to my many questions. 
“y/n?” Dan said quietly with his hand still tight on mine. 
I just looked up at him sadly, “Hm?” 
“What if he’s not okay?” Dan asked with worry now splashed over his face. His curls were now starting to show, I’m guessing because of humidity of his nerves. 
“I don’t know Dan.” I told him truthfully, with both of us trying hard to hold in panic as we both sat there heading to the emergency room. 

We had about 10 minutes left in the 15 minute journey from the restaurant to here. Dan suddenly stiffened up, cleared his throat and took his hands into my lap intertwined with his.
“y/n. Cody is a strong and smart kid, he’ll be alright. Whatever happens, I want you to know that I love you both. We can’t worry right now, it won’t do any good.” Dan said to me looking into my eyes insistently. I nodded and leaning into his shoulder as he held me. “I know.” I said solemnly.
“I’m scared too, but we have to believe in him.” Dan whispered in my ear after moving a piece of hair away.


After what felt like the longest car journey ever, we finally arrived. Dan already paid the driver about 2 minutes before our arrival not caring and having him keep the change, as we rushed in running with our coats catching wind. 
“Hello.” The kind, yet tired nurse greeted Dan and I. 
“Here for Cody Howell. We’re his parents.” Dan said focused not even bothering to to say hi, I don’t blame him though. 
“Alright, let me see.” The lady began typing and gesturing at the both of us to have a seat. 
There wasn’t a lot of people here, a middle aged woman on one side, an early twenties punk with his little sister and an old man, also a 3 member family that was 2 siblings and their father.

Dan and I looked for Maddie and then saw her come out of the restroom as we speedily walked towards her. 
“Maddie!” Dan shouted and Maddie looked up. 
“Oh you’re here!” Maddie says walking closer to us from the women’s restroom.
“What happened?” I asked her worriedly.
“Right so, Cody stood up on the couch and wanted to jump down. He wasn’t jumping at all previously, but just wanted one jump to the floor. Before I could stop him, he went for it.” 
I gulped hard, and Dan quickly muttered, “Then what else?” 
“His feet were so little that somehow it managed to touch the hinges holding the couch down which made him trip and hit the table. There was hot water on the edge which fell onto him, near his shoulder. I am so sorry.” Maddie finished and I felt sick. My poor little baby. What was happening with him right now? 
“When did you guys get here?” Dan asked. 
“About 30 minutes ago, I called you when we were arriving. You’ve been waiting for about 5 minutes. Again I am so sorry. I didn’t know he was going to jump right then, I should’ve stopped– ”

Before Maddie could finish or Dan or I could intervene, the nurse called us over. “Excuse me? You were wanting details on Cody Howell correct?” She asked the two of us, as we quickly modded walking back over to her station. 
“He is going to be alright, the burns aren’t too bad and they are mild. He will have two separate bandaging as one is worse than the other. The doctor will be out shortly to bring you in and you can ask him your questions.” The nurse saying one worse than the other made my stomach churn.
A 5'10 older man in a white lab coat with stethoscope wrapped around his collar and clipboard and hand suddenly walked in.


“Hello, I am Dr. Holden. Mr. and Mrs. Howell, why don’t you come and follow me to see your son?” He sounded somewhat nice, which calmed me down as if he was more grim, something worse would be to come. We all headed towards the door to the rooms, and I looked at Maddie wondering if she’d be allowed in, but the doctor shook his head, “Family only at this time.”
“It’s okay Maddie, you can go home now.” Dan said. 
“Are you sure?” We all nodded our heads.
“Alright. Okay, good night y/n and Dan. Again I apologize.” Maddie began waking out to leave while the two of us followed the doctor.


Dan and I walked into the curtain covered room to see our little boy, half sniffled and snuggled up. He looked kind of confused, sleepy and dazed but his face seemed kind of glad to see familiar faces. Cody’s eyes were drooping, his right arm bandaged up above and his hair was a cute mess. I missed him so much, I never was more relieved to see the little guy, other than his actual birth.

“Hi Cody!” I ran over to the big bed they placed him on where he was sitting upright. 
“Buddy! Hello.” Dan said kissing his head and playing with the little waves in his hair. “Mommy, daddy.” Cody says yet I can’t tell if he wants to be scared or excited as he’s confused, but his eyes still brighten up. While I hold his little body securely in my arms, Dan begins talking to the doctor.
“So Doctor, what’s his state right now?” Dan asked while I grasped Cody tightly. 
“Okay, so he is going to be fine. The hot water caused a slight first degree burn just below his shoulder towards the middle center. But the rest of the top is barely even a degree burn. So the 1st degree is wrapped up in cloth, but the rest is just 
bandaged lightly. Two different creams will be needed for the two different levels burn. But Cody is going to be okay.” The doctor told us reassuringly. My heart skipped a beat and I saw relief rushed through Dan. 
“I will be back with the soothing and healing preparation. The healing process should have no complications nor scaring. Maximum healing will take would be 3 weeks, usually it’s 1 to 2. I’ll have my nurse bring the papers to sign him out also. Right now, you guys have some alone time for now while we get everything together.” The doctor then walked out and left the room.


Dan and I cuddled up on opposite sides next to our adorable yet confused and also slightly injured son. 
“You hear that, you’re going to be all good!” Dan said trying to the cheer up the now sleepy little boy. 
“Uh huh.” He mumbled falling in between the arms of both of us. Dan and I shared each other a look and also a chuckle.
“Does it hurt Cody?” I asked carefully examining the bandaged up burn on his little arm.
“When I fell–yeah. It burned me so I started crying but Maddie put ice–and gave me cold water.” My heart wanted to wanted break in pieces when he said he cried because it hurt so much. Dan instantly saw me looking sad, so he shot me a solicitous look before pulling us all in closer.
“But does it hurt now?” Dan asked with care.
“Kind of but the lady put something cool on it. So now, it doesn’t hurt that much unless I touch or hit..” Cody said about to drift away, trying to fight back his yawn. It was getting to be near 10PM now, so it makes sense. “It’s better though..” He muttered curling up to Dan.

“Well you can go to sleep right now. Daddy will carry you out back to home okay?” Dan asked softly trying not to laugh. 
“Ohh–okay. Good night. Daddy, mommy?” 
Cody said putting his head back into the pillow.
“Yes?” We both answered.
“I love you. Good night.” Cody said before yawning, shutting his eyes and letting his perfect little self rest.
“We love you too.” Dan and I told him kissing each side of his squishy cheeks. Cody instantly fell asleep and Dan I were sitting right in between him.



“Dan. I was really scared earlier. Thank you for being there.” I told Dan as grabbed hold on my hand.
“y/n, of course. You were there for me too, knowing I had you reminded me that I couldn’t freak out. That we had to be brave for Cody. I don’t know what I’d do if something happened to this little guy.” Dan said slightly choking up, me as well.
“I love you guys so much. Favorite boys.” I told Dan as his lips touched mine.
“I love you y/n.” Dan whispered in between our kiss. Just when Dan finished saying my name, Cody snarled a big snore growl that made us pull away laughing, while trying hard not to wake up our snoring son below us. 
“Yes, I love you too Cody.” Dan said shaking head trying his hardest not to burst out in laughter. This was it, this was my perfect family and I am so lucky to have have it.

5SOS Preference : Baby After Breakup Part 3

Ashton: “Ready to go home, Kaila?” Ashton cooed to the little girl in the car seat as you finished getting ready to leave the hospital and go home with Ashton. He was going to have you and Kaila stay with him for the time being. “She’s not going to answer you, Ashton, she’s asleep.” You say exhaustedly and Ashton just shakes his head. “I don’t care. There’s going to be so many conversations between me and her that she won’t answer to or even know what i’m talking about, but i don’t care. I just love spending time with her already.” You smiled. “She’s got you wrapped around her little fingers already.” “Yeah she does, thanks for letting me in her life.” You nod. “Yeah, i should’ve called when i went into labor, i’m sorry i didn’t. You missed her being born.” Ashton sighed. “I may have missed her being born, but i can promise you i won’t miss anything else for the rest of my life.”

Luke: “Shh, don’t wake (YN) up, she went through a lot to get him out.” You hear Luke say to who you can only assume is the other boys coming to visit your little son. “What’d you guys end up naming him?” “Hayden.” “Hayden?” “Yeah, (YN) loved it and it’s a good name. He’ll do good with it.” “Are you two going to be back together now that you have Hayden?” Luke shrugged his shoulders. “I want to be with her, but i don’t know if she feels the same. We’re obviously going to work something out for Hayden so that we both can see him, but if we see him together or he visits either me or her, i’m not sure. I really don’t want him going from place to place, me on tour is going to be hard enough, i don’t want him to go back and forth worse then me. (YN) and I will just have to talk about it soon and get things settled.”

Calum: “Cody Trace Hood.” Calum announced to his family as they entered the hospital room to see the new baby. “He’s a boy.” They all walked in and surrounded the bed you laid in while holding your blue bundle. “He looks just like you, Calum! I mean just like you!” Mali said and you huffed, making Calum laugh. “Yeah, that makes (YN) just so happy.” “Why?” Joy asked and you straightened up as Calum took Cody and placed him in his sister’s arms. “Because i carried him for nine months and he looks exactly like Calum and absolutely nothing like me. He better have my personality, but Calum’s music ability, everyone knows i suck at that crap.” “I offered to teach you.” Calum said, making sure that Mali kept a tight grip on the baby and didn’t drop him. “Maybe you can teach both of us later.” You say with a smile and Calum looked over and grinned. “Maybe i will.”

Michael: You had decided on naming your little girl, Sadie. It was a name that suited her perfectly and you and Michael absolutely adored the name. “I’ve had some time to think.” You say as Michael held her late the night you two brought her home, Michael was staying at your home for a while until you two decided what the new living arrangements would be. “And?” He asked, not taking his eyes off of Sadie. “A second time won’t kill us and maybe we can work things out this time, you up for it?” Michael turned his head and gave you a kiss on the forehead. “I’m up for it if you are. Gives me a chance to be here for the both of you. You are going to have a loving boyfriend and Sadie is going to have a loving dad. I’m here for both of you for as long as you want me to be here.”
