Yay, update time! Sorry for being M.I.A for a while, I was pretty busy with school and such, but whatever, I'm back now! So, let's get the show on the road, shall we?
Disclaimer: I only own Emerson.
"C'mon, Cam! Jump in the pool! It won't hurt you!" Ferris yelled to Cameron who was sitting on the diving board.
We were all swimming in crazy Mrs. D's pool while she was at work. How it came to trespassing? I have no idea, but it did and it was seriously bothering Cameron. He was just dangling his feet from the board with this intense look on his face. Truth be told, it bothered me a bit. I swam up to him and hauled myself up onto the concrete ground.
"Let's go swimming," I practically whispered to him while holding his hand. "Please? You look sick."
As soon as I said that, Cameron fell face first into the pool and sunk to the bottom.
"CAMERON!" I screamed throwing myself into the pool.
It was too late for me; I couldn't reach the bottom even if I tried. My head bobbed to the surface quickly and as I gasped for breath, I called for Ferris.
"FERRIS DO SOMETHING!"
Ferris was already halfway down under when I realized I was only yelling at myself. What was I going to do without Cameron? If Ferris didn't save him…well, I didn't even want to think about that.
"Oh, dear God!" Ferris breathed as he reached the surface, carrying my boyfriend.
He dragged Cameron to the side of the pool and out of the water. We both hovered over him, slapping his face, hoping he'd wake up.
"We killed him!" I wailed, not even caring that I was crying.
Almost a minute after I said that, Cameron's eye fluttered open and a goofy smile crept over his features.
"Ferris Bueller, you're my hero…" he croaked, still smiling.
I thought I was going to kill him right there and then, and Ferris almost choked him.
"Are you kidding me?" He yelled while punching Cam's arm.
"You should've seen the look on your face!" Cam smiled, not even caring about the blows to his arm.
Ferris let up on him and let Cam get to his feet. I was sitting at the edge of the pool, feet dipped in, feeling absolutely sick to my stomach. That was the worst joke I've ever witnessed.
"Em," Cam said while laughing, enveloping me in a hug. "It's cool. Don't fret about it…"
"Don't even think about touching me, Cameron Frye!"
Ferris snorted from the other side of the pool at my words. He was so immature sometimes…but that's why we loved Ferris.
"Oh, c'mon Emmie, get a sense of humor!" Cam tried again.
My head whipped around. "A sense of humor? A sense of humor! I thought you were dead! That's not funny Cam!"
"Ooh, Cam's in the doghouse!" Ferris giggled.
Cameron hugged me tighter and lifted me up.
"What are you doing?" I demanded, now worrying about myself.
Cameron hopped onto the diving board and walked to the edge. "Cam…Cam…no, what are you- CAM!"
Cameron gave me a huge shove out of his arms, causing me to go flying in the pool. He jumped in after me, making the biggest splash I'd ever seen. Pretty soon I felt his arms wrap around my waist and spin me around.
"I love you, you know that?" he whispered into my ear.
I leaned against him and kissed his cheek. "I love you, too."
"Aw, guys, you're going to make me cry!" Ferris called from the diving board.
Cameron never let go of me; even when he jumped and swam toward us, demanding to be loved, too. Our love-fest was broken up, unfortunately, by Mrs. D.
"Oh, sh-" Ferris was cut off immediately by Mrs. D's unbelievable screaming.
"I'm calling the police on you kids!"
"What are we gonna do?" I asked, practically shaking.
"What the hell are you waiting for?" Ferris began. "Run!"
With me still in his grip, Cameron hoisted us both quickly out of the pool and onto the deck where we retrieved our things and scrambled to the driveway.
Once there, all of us hopped in, not even caring we were soaked.
"DRIVE, DRIVE, DRIVE!" I screamed as Ferris peeled out of the driveway and his development.
"That was close…"Ferris said in between bites of disco fries.
We were all sitting at diner, enjoying a snack. We were seated outside, due to our dampness. I was almost dry, though, and the weather was beautiful, anyway.
"I really thought we were going to go downtown." I said after sipping my Coke.
"My dad's going to kill me about the car's seats. I think he knows how to detect leather damage…"
"Cam, calm down." Ferris breathed.
"No, I'm serious. That man knows everything about that car! One time he told me he counted all the little holes on the seats! One hundred and five on each!"
Ferris rolled his eyes. "You need to learn how to live, buddy."
"I am living…just cautiously." Cameron retorted.
"No, no….not cautiously. You need to take a breather and just let it all go!"
I watched the both of them compete with each other back and forth. Sooner or later, the were on the topic of taking risks.
"I know what taking a risk is, Ferris."
"No, you don't! I'll show you what taking a risk is."
Ferris dropped a twenty on the table to pay for our food, and then made us follow him to the car.
"Where are we going?" I asked, a little worried.
Ferris put on his sunglasses and gave me a wicked grin. "It's a surprise!"
We all knew that when Ferris did surprises…he did surprises. I remember on my seventeenth birthday, when he got me a 'surprise'. As it turned out, in the middle of lunch period, in front of everybody, Ferris got Cameron to roll out a huge cake into the courtyard. Boy, did I get a surprise! Ferris jumped out in a neon Speedo, holding my turtle, Samson. To be honest, I was really scared as to what this surprise was going to be.
Ferris must have sensed my uneasiness and turned to me. "It has nothing to do with cakes, or Speedos….or turtles. Trust me."
There you have it! I hope you like this chapter, and I hope I can update sooner. Tell me what you think!
