Sunburns (TAG)

Ella sighed in happiness as she enjoyed the warm sun. It was quiet and peaceful, a rare combination in the Tracy household. She soaked up the sun from her hammock, and closed her eyes to enjoy the breeze.

The brunette zoned out for a good while, but eventually couldn't feel the warm sun. She peeked her golden brown eyes open to see her eldest 'brother' blocking the sun. "Hi, Scott," she mumbled sleepily as she jokingly tried to push him out of the way.

"Ella, how long have you been out here?" Scott asked, there was a hint of concern in his voice.

"Not sure, why?" Ella asked as she looked at him with a frown.

"Well, Ella, you've turned a lovely shade of tomato," Scott told her as he looked at her arms.

Ella sat up and looked down at her own arms. She gasped as she realized just how red she was, flinging her legs over the side of the hammock she sprinted inside the house. Ella quickly made her way to her bedroom, where she gave herself a good once over.

With a cry of shock and sadness, that resounded through the house, she filled her bathtub with cold water.

The sound of thundering footsteps just outside of Ella's door, made her cringe. "Ella," she had heard her name be shouted by various members, really it was her brothers.

"I'm fine, just burnt to a lobster," Ella called as she slowly opened her door. She peeked her head out to glance at her five brothers. All of them wore various looks of worry and concern, excluding Scott, who wore a frown.

"Can you please leave? I want to take a bath, and drown in my sorrows," she mumbled as she closed her door.
