I am yet again sorry for the late update but i had a severe flu and couldn't sit in front of the computer screen for more than 5 minutes. But here is the chapter and please tell me what you think! Next chapter will be very... Interesting ;)
The rest of the day went very slow. We reached home, ate dinner and went into our rooms. Thank God Gail made me something she thought I would like and didn't ask me for suggestions or I would've embarrassed myself yet again. I was sitting in my room watching TV when I heard the front door open and Christian's fatherly voice.
"Stephanie, Phoebe, We're home."
I slowly exited my room and went downstairs where I saw Phoebe giving each of them a hug.
"Afternoon Dad", "Afternoon Mom".
I just went over to them and gave them a smile.
"Good Afternoon, Mr. and Mrs. Grey."
They just smiled at me as we all proceeded towards the living room, where we were served with tea but I rejected.
"Why not Stephanie"
"I don't drink tea, Mr. Grey."
"How about coffee"
"No, I'm fine."
After a few minutes of awkward silence, Ana asked me about my first day of school.
"So, how was school Stephanie?"
"It was good."
"Did you like your teachers? Did u make friends? Tell me."
"Well, yeah I like my teachers and I made two friends."
"Oh, that's wonderful. I knew you would make friends very quick."
I just gave her a smile and after a couple of minutes, exited the room and returned to my room.
I went upstairs and decided to finally check out everything that was in my room.
I turned on my computer and customized it a bit.
Then I turned on my mobile phone (which was blackberry) and saw some numbers already in it.
Taylor, Sawyer, Ryan, Christian, Ana, Phoebe and Teddy; why in the world would I need Taylor, Sawyer and especially TEDDY'S number?
I just brushed away the thought when there was a knock on the door.
Christian came in,
"I see you've finally turned on your phone and computer."
"Uh, yes… Mr. Grey, why would I need these phone numbers?"
I showed him the phone and he just nodded.
"For security reasons"
"By the way, dinner's ready."
He just gave me a smile and exited the room.
I quickly ran to the bathroom, washed my face/ hands and opened the door to my room only to see a fuming Christian coming out of Phoebe's room.
"And I want that room clean, young lady!"
He shut the door and stormed downstairs.
I went over to Phoebe's room and knocked on her door.
"Can I come in?"
I slightly opened the door to see a crying Phoebe sitting on the bed which sat in the middle of her messy room.
"Can I ask what happened?"
She looked up at me with red and puffy eyes.
"Why do you wanna know?"
"Because, your father was fuming and you're crying. I just wanted to help you."
She sniffed and looked at me.
"Dad, found out about Dave."
"That blonde guy sitting next to you in the cafeteria?"
"So, how is he connected to your dad's anger?"
"Well, I think you've already figured out that, my dad is very overprotective and does background checks on any guy friend I have. So I stopped introducing my friends to him, especially my guy friends. But I don't know how, he's just found out about Dave and he did a background check on him; he does a background check on every person I'm related to whether it's a guy or a girl. I don't know what he found in his background check, but he just scolded me and told me to stay away from him and that I was grounded for two weeks for not telling him about Dave."
"Well, it was kind of your fault."
"If my dad wasn't that overprotective, I wouldn't have hid Dave away from him."
"Okay, let's get some things straight. Why did you Hide Dave from your dad?"
"Because I knew that there would be something about him that my dad won't like."
"Okay, who's more important, your dad or Dave?"
"Of course my dad what type of a question is that?"
"Then why didn't you think of your dad's feelings when you decided to become Dave's girlfriend?"
"I don't know, I guess it was love at first sight."
"But right now you were saying your dad was more important."
"Then you tell me, what should I do?"
"Break up with him. He is no good."
"But I love him."
"But you love your dad more."
"Stephanie why don't you go eat dinner, I want to be left alone. I have to clean this room too."
"I was just trying to help."
"Well, your help is NOT needed, Get out."
I slowly open the door, exit the room and go downstairs, to see Christian and Ana sitting on the dining table eating in complete silence.
I enter the dining room and get seated.
"I'm sorry, I'm late."
I look at Christian (who's usually the one talking) who is now completely silence just slowly and steadily finishing his food.
Dinner was very awkward the whole night I did nothing but toss and turn in my bed. I don't know why but I felt guilty for some strange reason. I have always had this habit of feeling guilty even if it was someone else's fault.
I sat up in bed in the middle of night and looked around trying to figure out something that would help me go to sleep.
I walked around my room but it didn't help. I slowly exited my room, went downstairs and entered the kitchen for a glass of water. I opened the fridge and heard someone talking. I slowly followed the voice and gathered it was coming from Christian's study.
"Ryan, it is now your responsibility to make sure that Phoebe doesn't go anywhere near that guy, am I clear?"
After about a couple of seconds I heard him sigh and bang his fists on the table.
I went back to the kitchen and poured myself a glass of water and decided to make coffee for Christian.
Maybe it would lighten up the tense atmosphere.
I tried finding the equipment and my way through the kitchen and finally poured everything the way I was supposed to and waited for the water to boil. I didn't know what type of coffee he liked so I just opened one of the compartments and found a jar of Black Coffee.
After finding a mug that said 'Best Dad Ever', I poured the coffee into it and set the mug of coffee, along with sugar on a tray and proceeded towards his study. I knocked on the door when I heard his tired voice.
I slowly opened the door and went inside but before I could say anything Christian said something which made me slightly laugh.
"Go to sleep baby, I'll be up in a minute."
"Actually, it's me Stephanie."
"Stephanie, what are you doing up so late?"
"Well actually, couldn't sleep, then I was thirsty, then I came downstairs and saw you in your study so I thought that maybe you would like a mug of coffee."
His face lit up like he was little child just given a whole tub of chocolate ice cream.
"That's so considerate of you Stephanie."
I just smiled at him and put the tray on his desk. He took the mug from the tray, took a sip and made a horrible face.
"What wrong, did I screw it up?"
He just laughed.
"No, I was just joking around with you. This is; I mean I don't know what to say, none of my two kids have ever made coffee for me."
I just looked at him shocked thinking that either he was just trying to make me feel better or he really was true.
"Have you ever had a boyfriend?"
"Life was already too complicated to get myself into this girlfriend/boyfriend mess. Plus my dad would've never found any guy suitable for his little princess."
"I just hope Phoebe would understand that one day."
I slightly nodded in agreement.
"So, did you talk to Phoebe, I mean try to be comfortable with her."
"Yeah, I did she's a very sweet person."
He just slightly laughed at my remark.
"Why don't you go to sleep now? It's almost 2."
I just nodded at him and opened the study door.
"By the way, thanks for the coffee, I really enjoyed."
I just gave him a smile and returned back to my room.
I woke up to my alarm, got dressed, went downstairs and entered the kitchen where I saw Christian and Phoebe hugging. I just smiled at them and Phoebe mouthed 'Thank You' to me.
I hope that this day has a good conclusion too.
But right now that was bothering me more was the 'Club'
Breakfast went pleasantly and so did the car ride to school. I went over to my locker where I saw Jane already assembling her books.
"Good Morning Jane"
"Good Morning Steph. How was your day?"
"It was great."
That's when I heard Jonathan's voice.
"Good Morning Ladies."
I looked over and saw him standing next to Jane. That's when the school bell rang and we all went to our classes.
I was going over to the cafeteria for lunch when I passed the Janitor's closet and heard muffled screams coming from in there. I quickly went over, rotated the door knob and the door opened. I quickly barged in where I saw Dave, who had put a hand over Phoebe's mouth to shut her up.
"Oh, you must be Stephanie, Phoebe's new sister."
"I said leave her."
"And why would I do that?"
I went over to them and tried freeing Phoebe when he smacked round the face making me fall back.
What is wrong with me!
I again went over to free Phoebe when I heard someone else enter. I looked back and saw Jonathan.
"Leave Phoebe alone, Dave"
That's when Dave quickly removed Phoebe from his grasp, and she ran into my arms and started crying. Then Jonathan held Dave from his collar.
"If you ever come near her again, I'll kill you."
After releasing Dave, he quickly went out of the janitor's closer and ran out of sight. Then Jonathan turned towards us.
"Why don't you both go to the nurse, your faces are red raw."
I just nodded, helped Phoebe and we both went to the nurses' room who just applied some cream on our cheeks.
After we exited the nurses' room, we went over to the cafeteria where I saw Jonathan sitting on a table talking to Jane. I went over to them along with Phoebe and she sat with us.
"I'm so sorry."
"It wasn't your fault Phoebe. At least now you know he wasn't worth it. Anyways, I think you should go home."
She just nodded at me and left us to go to the principal's office. And I turned my attention towards Jonathan and Jane.
"So I thought you were gonna tell me about that 'Club' today."
That both look at each other and Jonathan starts explaining.
"Well, we can't really explain because you won't understand until you see for yourself. So if it's possible then meet us tonight at my house and we'll take you over to the club from there. So just give me your number and I'll tell you the rest of the details like time and stuff"
We exchange number and return to our classes.
The rest of the day went quick and I kept thinking of how I was gonna convince the Greys to let me go without any bodyguard especially after what's happened today.
After reaching home, I enter the main door and see Phoebe sitting with Christian on the couch crying her eyes out.
