Chapter 21

Sloane

It took me only a few seconds to close my eyes, wrap my arms around his neck to return the kiss. I'll admit this threw me off a lot but I actually like it. I wanted to continue going like this. It was as if no one wasn't around, just the two of us.

My sense came to me tenfold when I realized what could happen if I return. I pulled away from him and he looked at me in confusion.

"What is it? I didn't mean to kiss you I apologize if I did…"

"No trust me it's not that you kissed me," I said.

"Then what?"

I looked away from him. "What if we start something together but I wind up going back home?" I asked. "Where is that going to leave us?"

"I see," he said softly.

"But I mean I wouldn't mind you know being with you it's just I don't know how long I have to be here. I don't know if I'm even going home or not…"

"Sloane," Edmund said, cutting my rambling off. "We'll figure it all out in time."

"Yeah you're right," I said.

He smiled at me before linking his hand with mine as we went inside. I couldn't help but feel like I was in high school over again whenever I went out with a guy.

Yeah that sounded cheesy but so what?

We parted ways since I wanted to check something out in the library. I went towards the section that I was looking around a few days earlier when my hand just flew to a book out of nowhere. I took it off the shelf and went towards one of the chairs and got comfortable.

As I was reading or more glancing at the pages, I looked up at the ceiling and just let my eyes wonder before I somehow decided to shut my eyes for awhile

Now I know it was a mistake.

Flashback

All I heard was shouting, beeping and a stretcher going down the hallway. I tried to open my eyes but I could see is blurs of people in dark and light blue scrubs. There were different color scrubs as well and I tried to say something but my mouth felt raw.

"Female seventeen injuries from car crash, BP 140/20," one nurse said.

"Alright let's get her to a CT scan to see if there's any extensive damage," someone else said.

I tried to sit up but someone kept laying me down on the stretcher. I looked over to my right and I saw someone else lying almost motionless on the stretcher next to me.

"E-Emily?" I croaked out.

I sat up trying to see who it was and sure enough it was my sister.

"EMILY WAKE UP!" I cried out.

"Calm down we're calling your parents they're on their way," one doctor told me.

I was too busy trying to see what they're doing to my sister. I saw them working on her as I tried to get out of the stretcher.

"That's my sister!" I cried. "Emily please wake up say something!"

I kept on crying as some nurses and doctors trying to calm me down. All I wanted to know is whether she's okay or not.

And no one gave me an answer.

End of flashback

My eyes opened and I didn't even know I had tears coming down my face. I wiped them away quickly and went to put the book back.

It's been forever since I remembered that day. I don't think I remember forgetting that day and moving on. But there were times that I feel like I was going back to the way I was feeling before. I wish that I didn't but I couldn't help myself.

I took a deep breath as I left the library. I went in my room and grabbed my iPod and left my room. I went up the stairs to my secret room; though I have a feeling Edmund and the others probably know by now so what's the point of keeping it a secret right?

I let some afternoon sun in through the windows as I got ready to dance. I had my player set up on a small stand I created when I was up here last. I know that it doesn't have speakers or an outlet to plug in a set of speakers if they had electricity but I'm living without it.

"Well Em, I'm doing this for you. I wish you were here on this adventure," I said.

"I'm sure she would've thought that too," a voice said.

I looked over my shoulder and Edmund was standing there by the doorway.

"Now you're following me all of a sudden?" I asked with a smirk.

"I wanted to see you," he replied. "Were you going to practice some dance?"

"Probably I mean before the accident I was working on an audition you know a test to see if I could get into this dance school I've wanted to go since I was a kid," I said.

"When am I going to see it?"

"You've already seen me dance," I said.

"Not from when we had lessons and the ball," he said, rolling his eyes slightly. "Just only you by yourself."

I bit my lip slightly as I sat down on the floor, stretching my body out. "I don't know it's been awhile," I said.

"You stopped?"

"For awhile after the accident and then I just stopped," I replied wistfully.

"Why?"

"I don't know well mainly because I needed to recover from the accident but then after that happened I lost interest," I replied, half lying through my teeth. "But ever since I came here I don't know I'm slowly starting to get back into it."

"That's good to hear so what are the type of dances you have?" he asked.

Oh boy this was going to be interesting.

"Well…" I said, cringing a bit. I wasn't sure how he would react when I showed him these. Techinally he would probably react no so well if he was in my time.

"Okay one of these moves are," I said, motioning my arms slowly up and down. "The robot."

"Why would it be called like that?"

"Beats me blame the 80s for that," I replied. I spun around before I faced him again. "And then you have the bump and grind?"

"The what?"

"Oh god this is so embarrassing," I said.

"Why would you think it's embarrassing?"

"Because when I'm from it's way different from the 1940s and well knowing how everything was I could imagine how you would react," I replied.

I saw him moving towards me and wrapped his arms around me. "No matter what, I don't think you'll be able to do anything of the sort," he said.

"Well you never know," I said.

He smiled at me before he leaned down and pressed his lips on to mine. He pulled away while he ran his hand down my cheek.

"Whatever happens, I'll always be here and protect you," he said.

I hope he was right about that.

"I'll do the same and whatever happens, we can figure it all out," I agreed.

A/n: I know I'm so sorry I'm overdue. This chapter came out like crap and my muse wasn't working with me.

Hopefully I'll update soon. The next few chapters are going to be very interesting. I would say that this story would have around 33 chapters total but this story is far from over.

Review on the way out! I thank you guys for your patience and support even if I take ages to update. I'll be on vacation from work in a couple weeks so hopefully I'll update quicker.

Until next time,
Spike
