Here's another update, i will now be updating this story every tuesday and thursdays. I just hope you like this chapter so... ENJOY!
"Now, I hope you understand princess; everything I do is for your safety."
After the door behind me closed with a sudden thud, Christian and Phoebe looked towards me.
"Stephanie, why don't you come and sit with us"
I went over and into the living room, and sat on one of the sofas opposite to them.
Phoebe wiped her tears and looked at me, "Say Thank you to Jonathan from me."
I just nodded at her and sat their uncomfortably still thinking of ways to persuade the Mr. and Mrs. Grey.
Should I ask him right now? No, I think I should ask him when Ana's around. Where is she anyway?
"Stephanie, Ana should be back in an hour, until then why don't you go and get fresh?"
I just nod and proceed to my. I close the door behind me and deeply exhale.
I come out of the bathroom and look at something I had forgotten about, the past 3 days since I came here.
I went over to my little rucksack and open it. I produce my bracelet that has my name on it; I remember buying it with my dad once. Along with the bracelet was a silver wrist watch which my grandma gave me but it was out of batteries. I then take out my wallet, open it and stare at the passport size picture of me and my dad together. It was originally taken as a portrait but my dad also got it printed in passport size so he could keep it in his wallet. I was almost 7 years old in the picture. I then searched through the compartments of my wallet and saw that I had 20 dollars in here. I also found my dad's business card. He was a CTO at a renowned internet company in Spain back then. He was a very successful man, don't even get me started. I then took out a little black external hard drive which was a backup of my old computer. I quickly got excited and made a mental note in my head to plug it in my computer later. I dug more into the sack and took out a pair of glasses. Yes, I wear spectacles but I thought I looked ugly with them so I stopped. I put them on and went over to the dresser and looked into the mirror.
I look hideous. But I can see everything more clearly. I think I should put those 20 dollars to good use and buy a new pair of spectacles because I am definitely NOT wearing these to school.
Before I could take them off, the door opened and Ana entered my room.
"Stephanie, you wear glasses, I never knew that."
"Oh, I was just…"
"By the way I just came to tell you that lunch is ready and… Thank You."
"For helping Phoebe today"
"It was actually my friend who helped her I just tried."
"Well, then thank you for trying."
I just smile at her and realize that she was now staring at the little picture of me and my dad. She went towards and held it in her hand.
"Is that you Stephanie?"
"Yes, that's me and my dad."
"You're dad's so graceful."
"A lot of people say that about him."
Lunch was relatively silent and I just kept thinking of ways to persuade the greys. So after lunch when Phoebe was in her room, Ana and Christian were in his study so I taking advantage of the moment, I knocked on the door and went inside after his approval.
"Mr. and Mrs. Grey I have to ask for your permission." I glanced at the clock and noticed that it was only 5.
Phew. This means I have time, if I leave after an hour I'd have enough time.
"Permission for what, Stephanie"
"Well, my friends wanted to go somewhere, so I uh, have to ask for your permission."
Christian sighed and then looked at me, "Stephanie, look, you are free to go anywhere unless you go with a bodyguard."
"But Mr. Grey…" I looked towards Ana with pleading eyes.
"Christian could I talk to you for a moment." She dragged Christian out of the study closed the door and started talking to her. I placed my ear on the door and listened to what they were saying.
I know eavesdropping is not a good habit but I had to listen to what she was going to say to know whether I was going or not.
"Christian. Let Stephanie go alone, I know she'll be fine. Look this lifestyle is new for her and she's just trying to fit in."
"Ana, I don't want to take risks."
"This is not a risk; Stephanie lived without a bodyguard before she came to our lives, didn't she?"
I then heard Christian sigh, "Fine, but if anything happens to her or…" there was a prolonged silence, "if she brakes my trust, she isn't allowed to go anywhere without a bodyguard."
I quickly move away from the door as it opens and Christian and Ana enter. Ana looks at Christian who has look that reflects the word "Defeated". "You can go Stephanie and without a bodyguard but you promise us that you won't get yourself into anything bad."
That hits me. Promise us you won't get yourself into something bad.
I just nod at her and she gives me a hug, "Have fun."
I just smile at her, exit the study and jump in excitement. I quickly run upstairs take out the paper that had Jane's number from my jeans back pocket and text her
*When do we leave? What should I wear? BTW, I'll need a lift.*
I then proceed towards my closet to search for something to wear. As I was searching, my phone beeped and I ran over to it.
*Slow down, don't get too excited, we'll leave at six and me and John will pick you up. Just wear a pair jeans and a top nothing special needed.*
After about fifteen minutes, I was ready and that's when I got a text from Jane.
*We're outside your house*
I exited my room and was about to go downstairs when I heard Phoebe's voice.
"You're going somewhere?"
"Yeah, I'm going out with Jane and Jonathan."
"Oh, take care and be safe."
I just nodded at her. Why in the world is everybody asking me to stay safe?
I just brushed away the thought and went downstairs where I was met by Ana and Christian who both gave me a hug, "Have fun."
I just smiled at them and preceded towards the door when I heard Christian's voice, "Ryan will drop you off."
"Oh, that won't be needed Mr. Grey, two of my friends are here to pick up."
He narrowed his eyes at me, "Are they driving themselves."
"How old are they."
"Jonathan, who's driving is 18 and Jane is 16."
"What is he still doing in school?"
"He started school a year late."
He just nodded, "Jonathan is the boy who saved Phoebe from that other boy right?"
I just hesitantly nodded at him, "I would like to meet that boy."
"Of course, why not"
That's when Ana realized I was getting more and more nervous, "Christian why not some other time."
Christian looked at Ana who glared back at her, "Fine."
"Of Course, Stephanie have fun."
I just smiled at them, exited the house and went towards the waiting car.
"No it's okay. Let's go."
I just nodded at them as Jonathan started driving. I just stared out the window and very weird thoughts came to my head.
First, what happened to Phoebe earlier that day, then Christian's deal with Ana of not letting me go anywhere if I broke his Trust? What if I really break his trust, what will happen? I then think of my dad, what would he be thinking of my actions right now?
I keep looking outside the window and try to calm myself by thinking that I'll go here once then I'll think of whether to come here again or not. Plus, it's only a club, I'm pretty sure Christian, Ana and my dad went to clubs at this age; right?
I then roll my eyes in frustration and let out a huge breath.
I look over at Jane, "Not really, because I certainly don't know where you're taking me."
"Don't worry, you'll like this place." I look at Jonathan as we come to a stop, "Let's go."
We climb out of the car and walk a bit distance and then Jonathan opens a door which releases a huge staircase that goes underground.
I follow Jane and Jonathan down there as we come across another door. Jonathan then takes out his cellphone and calls someone.
"Yeah, we're outside the door… Yeah, she's here too… 16… Okay."
After a couple of minutes a guy opens the door and I can hear the boom of music and screams coming from inside of the building. The guy greets us and then looks at me, "Ready?"
I nervously nod as we enter the door.
PLEASE REVIEW, they really motivate me to write more =)
