Rinse Chapter 2! (If any of you people were wondering why I named my fic Rinse, it's because of this song. It's by Vanessa Carlton, and it really makes you think, well at least I think so.) So here's Chapter 2! And here are the lyrics to that song.

Rinse She'd do anything to sparkle in his eye She would suffer, she would fight, and compromise She's been wishing on the stars that shine so bright For answers to questions that will haunt her tonight

She must rinse this all away She can't hold him this way She must rinse this all away She can't love him this way

How she'd be soothed, how she'd be saved if he could see She needs to be held in his arms to be free But everything happens for reasons that she will never understand 'Til she knows that the heart of a woman will never be found in the Arms of a man

Chorus

And if she runs away she fears she won't be followed What could be worse that leaving something behind And as the depth of oceans slowly become shallow It's loneliness she finds... If only he was mine

She'd do anything to sparkle in his eye She would suffer, she would fight, and compromise She's been wishin' on the stars that shine so bright For answers to questions that will haunt her tonight

She must rinse him She must rinse him She can't rinse him She can't rinse him She can't, she won't, she must rinse him She can't, she won't, she must rinse him She must rinse him She can't rinse him She must rinse him She can't rinse him

After concocting a plan to get Peter to let Gwyn join the cliffhangers, they decided to screw all plans and just go up and ask after group. she would be with them anyway,

Peter got a bit of a shock when he walked into the lodge. All the cliffhangers there and everyone were fine. But Gwyn was lying down on the couch with a small ashy brown cat lying on her stomach purring while staring right at Gwyn.

"What are you looking at?" Gwyn asked the cat. The cat meowed in reply. Peter was definitely confused. Shouldn't he or Sophie have noticed a cat while checking her things?

"Um, Gwyn? Why is there a cat on your stomach?" Peter asked, not really knowing what to do and a bit afraid of her reply.

"Jasper is just being a brat and not getting up, that's all. Why?" Gwyn replied curiously at Peter,

"Um Gwyn, I don't think you're allowed to have a cat here. What if someone's allergic?"

"Oh don't worry, I asked all the cliffhangers and they aren't. Some actually like him."

"Gwyn, you shouldn't have a cat here. I'm going to have to take him."

"NO!! Where will he go!?!? He's my only friend! He doesn't do any harm! REALLY! He just eats my leftovers and plays outside. You don't even need a litter box! Don't take him away! Please don't take Jasper." After that, Gwyn completely broke down crying while hugging her cat. Jules and Daisy decided to go over and comfort her while Shelby, Ezra, and the rest of the cliffhangers decided to tackle Peter (in a proverbial sense).

"Hey Peter. We were thinking and we decided that Gwyn really belongs in the cliffhangers." Shelby stated.

"Oh you did? Well, I think that decision is really up to myself and Sophie." Peter replied trying to stay calm.

"Pete, man, you gotta realize this girl wouldn't survive that group." Auggie cut in.

"She'd do better off in the nuthouse." David mumbled.

"Shut up!" Scott barked, "Anyway, almost everyone of the trailblazers is anger management. We just feel that she would relate better to the cliffhangers. Besides, Ezra likes the cat."

"I do." Ezra stated, "Come on Peter! Please let her stay with us. It's for her own benefit and you know it!"

"I guess you guys leave me no choice." Peter sighed. "All right, she can stay with the cliffhangers. But don't make me regret this decision, okay?"

" Comprende." Auggie replied with a smirk.

"Hey!" Scott called over, "Gwyn's staying!" Everyone seemed happy about that, escpecially Gwyn. For the first time in her life she found people that wanted her.
