Thank for the ones who reviewed my first chapter! :) Please enjoy chapter 2. Review and tell me how you like it so far and if you have any ideas I could add to make the story unfold better.
Ty and Rocky ended up agreeing with CeCe about starvation. And that's how they found themselves walking through the doors of Crusty's and down the wooden steps. Rocky took in a deep breath, breathing in the familiar scent. Another thing she missed dearly—the sense of familiarity.
Her eyes then widen, her throat mustering out a small "Wow." As she examine the place. The place may have smelled the same but the surroundings had changed. The walls were a different color, the tables were arranged different… after four years things were bound to change, she told herself.
They sat down at a vacant booth and waited to be served.
"This place has definitely changed since I've last been here." She told her brother and friend. CeCe and Ty both nodded. "Oh yeah! They changed it about a year ago though. It's still hard getting used to it." CeCe said with a smile as she stood up.
"Hey where're you going?" Rocky asked as she eyed her friend in confusion. CeCe grinned "Be right back!" she exclaimed before heading her way to the back of the restaurant where she found Deuce's uncle making pizzas.
"Hey Frank!" she greeted casually. "Where's Deuce?" she asked him cutting straight to the chase. Frank just chuckled. "He just left, sweetheart. Said something about meeting someone today?" he shrugged.
CeCe face-palmed herself "Are you kidding me?" she groaned. "What's wrong kiddo?" he asked as he moved to put the pizza in the oven.
She shook her head "Oh nothing. Rocky's back though!" she said with a smile. He grinned. "Huh, that's great! I'll go greet her." He said before walking over to their booth. CeCe stayed behind and pulled out her phone.
With her black colored nails she dialed her friend's number and after the second ring he picked up.
"What's up CeCe?" Deuce Martinez's voice came from the other line.
"Don't 'what's up' me! Where are you? !" she scolded him, tapping her foot in anxiousness.
"What do you mean?" he asked clearly confused. "Where am I supposed to be?"
"Here! At Crusty's you idiot!"
"Why would I need to be there? My shift just ended!"
She rolled her eyes. Was this boy seriously that dense? Ugh. "Because Rocky is here! And you're suppose to be here!" she exclaimed, trying her best not to scream at her Latino friend.
The other line went silent for a moment and she wondered what was going on through his head. "R-right, Rocky's back." His voice came out. But this time not as sure.
She raised an eyebrow.
She remembered about two months ago when she had spoken with Deuce. They had somehow begun to talk about Rocky and just like now he had frozen up. She had immediately suspected that he had a thing for her. And now this had just proven it.
She suddenly chuckled. "Someone's in LOVE!" she whispered/shouted with a smirk coating her lips.
He cleared his throat. "I got to go CeCe." he said before hanging up.
"Darn you Deuce Martinez." She muttered before walking out to meet her best friend and boyfriend.
"CeCe where were you?" Rocky asked when her friend took a seat next to her. "Had to take care of some unfinished business was all." She told her friend with a light sigh.
Rocky nodded before shrugging and going back to ordering her meal.
Knock Knock Knock
"I GOT IT MOM!"
Flynn flew the door open and grinned when he saw who was standing there. "Rocky!" he exclaimed before giving her a welcoming hug. Rocky giggled and hugged him back.
"Wow Flynn you've grown too! O my gosh, how old are you now? 15? 16?" she asked surprised at how much Flynn had changed.
Flynn just chuckled. "Fourteen." He told her before letting them all in. "Sup Ty. CeCe." He nodded.
CeCe rolled her eyes. "How come Rocky gets a hug but I don't?"
"Because I like Rocky. But you? Eh." He shrugged before heading to the kitchen.
"Well aren't you just sweet." CeCe rolled her eyes once again. She turned to Rocky "Come on I'll help you with your things." She said before beginning to help Rocky with her luggage as Ty went to take a phone call.
"Wow CeCe your room is actually clean!" she chuckled as she put the last of her bags on the floor near the closet. "Yeah, I was in a cleaning mood. Though that will never happen again…. Way too much work." She sighed and wiped off the imaginary sweat from her forehead.
Rocky laughed before plopping down on CeCe's bed. "Ugh. I'm so tired." Rocky told her as she closed her eyes.
"Oh no, no, no! You are not sleeping! We are going to go PARTY! Because my best friend is back!" she grinned as she plopped down right beside her.
"Can't we do that tomorrow? I still have to go visit my parents."
"Well you can visit them. And then we go partying!" she reasoned the way only she could.
"No buts my friend! Just no." she shook her head.
"Ugh fiiiiiinnneee!" Rocky gave in. I can never win with CeCe's. Curse her persuasiveness, thought Rocky.
They stayed silent for a while before Rocky asked a question. "Hey how come I haven't seen, Deuce?" she asked quietly.
"Oh…he's around. He's um pretty busy…" CeCe told her friend. She honestly didn't know why Deuce hadn't shown his face yet… What was up with him?
Silence once again.
"But do not worry about him! I'm sure we'll see him later!" her friend tried cheering her up.
"Yeah, I guess." Rocky sighed.
CeCe stood up, dragging her friend up with her. "Come on! Let's go to the kitchen. I'm hungry!"
"But you just ate!" Rocky told her as she followed her friend out the door.
"So? I'm hungry again! This girl's got to eat!"
It was 8:30pm when Rocky left the Jones residence to visit her parents. She told CeCe she'd be back later to go out as a group to 'party'. She honestly didn't want to. But of course she agreed. Well she was persuaded.
She was walking along the street about to cross the street when she heard her name be called out. She turned her head and cocked her head to the side when she saw who had called out her name.
"Rocky!" the man said again as he caught up to her. He stood about 5'11 towering over her by 2 inches. He had dark hair and the most amazing brown eyes.
He seemed familiar but at the same time not. "Do I—?" she gasped. "Deuce? !" he smiled, nodding and she found herself tackling him in a hug.
He hugged her back unable to let a chuckle escape his throat. He had been walking around the area just letting his mind relax when he had seen her. She looked beautiful even more so than she did four years ago. It was now or never, he had told himself before he even realized that his voice let out a call, shouting her name.
She pulled away almost reluctantly and smiled. "I didn't think I would have seen you." She told him, looking up to him. She couldn't believe it. He was finally taller than her. She couldn't believe it. It felt sort of weird…but in a good way.
He scratched the back of his neck sheepishly "Uh, yeah. Sorry. I was really occupied." He mustered out.
She nodded a little disappointed with his answer but was nonetheless glad to finally see him again. Really glad.
