Chapter 5

I grabbed the sweats and the grey t-shirt Rock gave me and closed the bathroom door behind me. I looked at myself in the mirror and I looked horrible and… well, wet. I pulled off my soaked-in-sea-water sweat shirt and all the sudden, the bathroom door swung open. (Shit I forgot to lock it)

"AHH!" I screamed. "What the hell is wrong with you! Coming into a bathroom when a girl is inside?" I shouted. Rock blushed when he saw me.

"Oh… I'm sorry, I wasn't even thinking, Um I was just going to tell you that you should take a shower before you change so you wouldn't smell like the ocean."

"Oh… okay…" I said covering myself with my sweatshirt. Rock just stood in the doorway and starred at me like he was spacing up. I blushed. "Umm, Rock?" I said

"Oh uh I'm sorry! I'm going to…uh get out now!" He said as he closed the door behind him. I giggled because I never seen Rock act so silly before. He is usually too serious or mad. I climbed into the bathtub with a pink towel wrapped around me. I closed the curtains and took off the towel and hung it on one of the towel racks. I twisted the nob as cold water poured out and I placed my hand underneath the running water and waited for the hot water to come out. I started wetting my hair and grabbed a cherry blossom scented shampoo bottle and started washing my hair with it. I could smell some of the sea salt running out of my hair as I rinsed it with hot water. After I washed my hair, I searched for a bar of soap and I found it on a fancy golden plate next to the bath beads. I picked up the soap which was carved into a shape of a rose and it was pink. I ran the soap under the hot water as the rose scent filled the air. I closed my eyes as the hot water poured down my face and I started singing ( it's a habit) After I rinsed off all the soap, I turned the water off and grabbed my towel. I dried my hair and I wrapped the towel around me and stepped out. I forgot that there wasn't any bath mats on the floor and I slipped on the puddle of water that dripped from my hair and fell backwards. I hit my head on the edge of the tub…..

********************(One hour Later)**********************************

I woke up in a familiar room and remembered I was at Rock's house.

"Oh! You're awake!" Rock said cheerfully.

"What happened?" I asked.

"You fall a lot don't you? 1st you fall into the tub and now this?" He said. "And before that you fell on me when we first met. You are such a klutz." He said laughing. Oh yeah, I fell and hit my head on the tub when I got out of the shower.

"Rock? Did you carry me to your bed when you found me unconscious?" I said remembering I only had a towel on me. Then that means he saw me…. Rock just blushed.

"Well… what was I supposed to do?" He said. This was too humiliating I wanted to die! I hid under the blankets because I couldn't talk to him face to face. I can't believe this was all happening to me. We were both in an awkward silence for a while as we both just sat and blushed.

"Hey. Apple? Do you want to go out and eat something? I am starving." He asked breaking the silence.

"Yeah…" I said. "But can I get something to wear first?" I said as I clutched the blankets. Rock blushed again (Now look who's blushing a lot now!)

"Oh, right. Right…" He said. "EMMY!" he called out. A young woman with short curly brown hair with a black ribbon with grey eyes and wearing a bronze dress with white apron came in the room and smiled.

"Yes, did you call sir?" She said.

"Yes, can you bring her one of Tima's dress to change into?" He said. Mentioning cousin Tima's name in an angry way.

"Yes, right away sir!" She said.

"Bring her the best dress there is." He called after her as she hurried out of the room. I wanted to ask him why he hated cousin Tima so much but now didn't seem like the right time. I sat on the side of his bed with the towel wrapped around me. Rock blushed at my presence (Blame the male instinct) A couple of minutes later Emmy came back with a beautiful green dress with a brown collar and with black floral prints on the bottom of it.

"You like it?" Emmy asked as she handed me the dress. "I thought this color would look great on you!" She said.

"Yes, thank you! I love it!" I said. Emmy secretly handed me a new pair of bra and underwear since mine were all soaked from the ocean. I guessed she saw Emmy handing me them since he turned bright red and turned away from me. I walked into the bathroom and changed into the new clothes. The dress fit me perfectly, I walked out of the bathroom and Emmy gasped.

"Just as I thought!" she said. "You look absolutely adorable!" I smiled at her comment.

"What do you think Rock?" I asked giving him a quick twirl

"Yeah, it looks fine." He said.

"Fine?" I said

"You look really cute…" He mumbled and turned away. Emmy giggled.

"We should get going, I just reserved us a dinner for the both of us." He said. I nodded and followed him outside the gate. I guessed that we were taking a limo but instead there was a white car parked out with a maid next to it holding the keys. Rock grabbed the keys from her and opened the passenger seat for me.

"Is this your.." I asked

"Yeup!" Rock said proudly. "This is my car! Remember? Im sixteen!" Woah… so this means that he is driving me to a restaurant? I quickly got situated in the front seat and Rock got in afterwards and started the engine. We drove off to the restaurant and we found a parking spot. We got off the car and he escorted me to the restaurant where we found a fancy looking waiter at the front.

"Reservation for Rock McBeth?" He said. The waiter looked up.

"Yes, right this way sir!" The waiter said walking us to the table. "Drinks?" He asked.

"Two cokes please!" Rock said, and the waiter walked off. We got situated and I just looked around the restaurant. Then Rock looked at me in the eyes and asked.

"Apple, can I ask you something?"


What is Rock planning to ask Apple? Read the next chapter and find out once its out! Hehe! Well this took me a while to write x) Thanks for reading!
