A Very Rydellington Chrsitmas: Chapter Two
We walked into his house and El showed me up to the guest room.
"Here, m'lady, is where you will be staying." He bowed and then let me into the room. It had a full sized bed in the middle with a side-table on a side. Bright windows let the sun in, and the lime green comforter made is feel like spring.
"Sweet!" I said. Ratliff grinned down at me.
"So, since it is already like six, do you want to watch a movie?" El asked me.
"Yeah! Just let me get changed."
"Okie dokie, I'm gonna go get popcorn!"
"Okay," and with that he bounded down the stairs. I shut the door and went to my duffel bag. Let's see now, where did I put my pajamas? I started taking things out of my bag.
"Jeans, Shirts, Shoes, Shampoo, Conditioner, Perfume, where are they?" I mumbled to my self.
"You know, talking to yourself is a sign of madness right?" I looked over to see El leaning on the door frame, already in a pair of black and green plaid pajama pants, and a green t-shirt with a frog on it, holding a bowl of popcorn.
"What's the problem Dell?"
"I don't know where I put my pajamas…" He laughed at me.
"This is not funny Ellington."
"Yeah it is. Miss Rydelly forgot to pack something! What is this world coming to!" He fake fainted and quickly got back up.
"What am I supposed to do?"
"Chill, I got it covered." Before I could respond he had swiftly set the popcorn down and ran out to his room.
He was back in two minutes, holding a pair of black sweats and a baseball t-shirt. He handed me the clothes.
"There, problem solved!" He grinned at me.
"Anything for my good friend," I gave him a hug and I walked into the bathroom. I quickly changed and put my hair up in a ponytail. I turned around and noticed something on the back of the shirt.
"Ratliff" with a big 8 below it. I kinda, sorta blushed a little. This was something that boyfriends/girlfriends do right? Oh Rydel, why are you even thinking about that, he was just being nice.
"Maybe he likes you…" a little voice said in my mind. I shrugged it off and went down stairs.
I am so stupid. I can't believe that I almost called Rydel, 'my girl' I mean, yeah I had a good cover up, and maybeshe didn't notice, but still. And then, I gave her my old baseball shirt, with my last name on the back… Isn't that something boyfriends do for their girlfriends. Oh my God, what am I thinking. I can't like Rydel. The rest of the band is gonna kill me…
But she does have really shiny blonde hair, and she smells so good, and I just, I just think she's beautiful.
Oh, man do I have it bad.
I skipped down the stairs and walked into the kitchen where El was standing bent over the sink. He didn't see me walk in, he looked like he was deep in thought. I tip-toed over to him and jumped on his back.
"Woah!" He almost fell backwards… hehe whoops!
"Hey, what were you thinking about."
"Nothing," he mumbled, his face turning a light shade of pink. Oh, Ratliff has a crush on someone! Finally, now I can tease him for something!
"Tell me," I poked him in the ribs.
"I will find out."
"Yes I will."
"No you won't."
"How do you know."
"Because, I just know." He shrugged and picked me up, throwing me behind his shoulder.
"Ahhhh, Ellington Lee Ratliff!"
"Yes Miss Lynch, is there a problem?"
"Put me down!"
"If you wish," he set me on the couch and began to tickle me.
"R-Ratliff! S-S-STOP!" I was squirming like crazy. He stopped and leaned over me.
"Do you still want to know now?" He whispered in my ear.
"Yes, but I'm not going to find out, yet."
"Good girl!" He sat up and went to grab the popcorn.
"What movie do you want to watch?"
"Umm… I don't know, what about Elf?"
"Yes! That's my favorite." He did a happy dance and put the movie in, plopping down next to me.
The movie started and Ratliff slung his arm around me, putting the popcorn bowl between us.
We laughed at all of the funny parts, which really, is every other line.
Towards the end, I felt my eyes get heavy. My head fell onto something warm and I fell asleep.
I felt something hit my shoulder and looked down. Rydel was sleeping peacefully on me. I chuckled gently and placed the popcorn bowl on the ground.
I finished the rest of the movie, and shut it off.
I gently picked up Rydel and carried her upstairs into her bedroom. I tucked her in, and kissed her forehead, whispering goodnight.
Nobody needs to know about the kiss right? After all, what you don't know can't hurt you…
END! Stay tuned for another chapter coming up soon!
