Chapter Fifteen: Just Say 'Yes' (Katie)


"You know I have really missed your cooking." I told her.

And it was the honest truth. Me and Josh went a few days with out food, then we had hospital food. It tasted so bad.

"Thanks. Wanna help?" Megan asked.

I nodded, "Sure."

A few minutes later I asked Megan about her and Keegan. And well she didn't give me a strait answer. After, she poked me. She poked me. Who does she think she is.... poking me. I looked down at the flour in my hands. And instantly a light bulb went off in my head.

I took a pinch of the flour from my hand and tossed it at her. She had a shocked expression but composed her self and tossed some at me. A few minutes later we were covered in flour and so was the floor. There goes us making pizza. Oh well.

She wants a flour war, she's getting a flour war. I picked up the bowl of flour off the counter and was about to pour it over Megan's head when the door opened, and I stopped in my tracks.

Megan stood there staring at Keegan and he did the same. The way he was looking at her made me want to leave. And plus I do not want to get in trouble for this. So I snuck away before she caught me.

"Look at them being all touchy." Josh said from the other side of me.

"I don't want to, that's why I'm facing the other way genus." I said pulling on a strand of hair covered white in flour.

"I think we should break that up." He said a little to happy.

"And why would we do that?" I asked.

"Because she broke up us in the hospital, remember?"

"Yeah, but then later she gave us privacy and we took advantage of that. Remember."

"You got me. But just this once. Just for pay back?" He pleaded.

"Whatever, I'm not involved in this." I said and walked away to get the flour out of my hair.




"This is a surprise, so stop asking." Josh said, leading me blindfolded to somewhere.

"Please just tell me?" I pleaded at him.

"Katie, I will duck tape your mouth if you don't stop asking." Megan said.

I do not want my mouth taped! And I want this blindfold off, and I want to know what the heck is going on!

The three of them kept walking and not talking to me. So I listened. But they gave nothing away.

I felt Josh's hands on my shoulder leading me the right way. Megan's hand was in mine and Keegan's. I bet we looked stupid to other people. I know we're outside, but I don't know where.

They kept on walking and all I had was my thoughts to myself. I thought back to when I was still in the hospital, and worried about Josh coming back. Then he came in bringing me gifts.



I laid there half listing to the doctor and Megan. All I wanted was for Josh to come back. After the doctor left. I couldn't take it anymore. I had to go find him. I sat up about to get up when the door opened and in walked Josh.

A smile came to my face when I noticed him. He was holding candy, flowers, a card and a small 'get well' bear. That's so cute, and cheesy, and I couldn't help but smile more.

Out of the corner of my eye I saw Megan and Keegan get up.

"Where are you going?" I asked her.

"To get some food." She replied smiling back at me.

I wasn't to sure weather or not that smile was real or fake, but I let it slip my mind.

"Here, I didn't know what to get you. So I kind of got everything..." Josh said handing me the stuff.

"You didn't have to get me anything. Now I have to get you something." I said trying to think of something to get him.

"No need. I already got something." He said, and finished under his breath.

I cocked my head to the side. What did he mean?

Looking down at the gifts, I smiled. He really didn't have to get me anything. Though that bear is cute. I thought, playing with the foot of the teady bear.

"You didn't have to." I said again.

"Like I said, I wanted to. And besides, it looks like you like them." He said nodding towards my hands.

"Got to admit, I do like this cheesy bear. And the flowers are nice. So thank you."

I got a smile in reward.


"Yeah." I looked up at him.

"When are you going back home?" He asked his smile dropping.

I haven't even thought about home. How am I going to go back home knowing that I like him.

"I don't know. Maybe when I get to leave." I said sadly.

"Oh." Was all he said looking away.

Is he sad that I'm leaving too?


"Hmm." He said looking back at me.

"I like you, you know. And.... I-"

But I didn't finish. His lips were on mine and I couldn't help but to kiss him back.

My heart was beating so fast while we kissed, I wasn't surprised when we started to hear a beeping noise. Then a nurse came in. And we parted real quick.

She gave us the dirtiest looks ever and walked back out, without even checking me.

That was embarrassing.

Josh came back to sit at my side. "We can't do that again."

"But can't we? Just not like before." He said winking at me.

A blush came to my face. I could feel it. And it felt bad. Like full on red statues. I knew it.

He cracked a smile. "You look cute like that." He said before leaning back in towards me.

This time it was just a simple kiss. When we parted, he got up off the bed and stood there staring at me. The blush I knew was still there when I heard the door open and in walked Megan an Keegan.



A smile came to face while thinking about that and I knew I was blushing a little too.

"Alright we're here!" Megan announced letting go of my hand.

"Yay, now can I take off this blindfold?" I said, sounding irritated.

Though, at the moment I wasn't.

"In a minute." She said, sounding like she was walking away from me.

Huh? What is she doing?

"Josh?" I asked, I couldn't feel his hands anymore.

"Now! Take off the blindfold!" Megan yelled.

I did as she said and reached behind me to untie it.

When I took it off, it was bright. So I blinked a few times to adjust. And when my vision came to, I saw all three of them standing a few feet from me. Megan was holding a cake and they yelled "Happy" under their breath 'late' and finished with "Birthday Katie!"

My hand came up to my mouth, in awe. When did they plan this?

"When?" I mumbled.

"Don't worry about that." Keegan said. "Just enjoy it." He finished wrapping his arm around my sister.

I took a few steps towards them and blew out the candles that were lit.

"Thank you guys." I said giving them all a hug individually.

"I didn't get to give you your birthday present slash birthday what ever you want to call it. So now I am. Just with a little help." Megan said, grabbing my hand after she set the cake down.

"Thank you Megan." I said, and hugged her one more time.

On my birthday, I wasn't with her, and I knew that hurt her. I hurt me too. But I had someone there. And it was Josh. It couldn't have been better. Well it definitely could have. But yeah. I'm just glad I'm not in the elevator anymore.

Not to mention the freak out I had when we were leaving the hospital and they wanted me to go in an elevator to get to the main floor to leave. Josh said that we should take the stairs and I totally agreed with him. That was also why it took him for ever to get back from the gift shop. He took the stairs, both ways. Avoiding the elevator at any cost. And now, I'm positive I'll never be able to get in one ever again! Enough about that, let's get back to the party.

Apparently Keegan and Josh rented a beach house for the day. And to tell you, it's amazing! This is definitely what I thought of when Megan said we were going to Florida for my birthday.

We ate cake, danced, opened a few presents. Pretty much everything you do at a birthday party, we did. Just the four of us. And to say, it was nice.

I stood looking out at the ocean, when I felt a pair of arms wrap around my waist.

"What's you looking at?" Josh asked.

"Nothing. It looks peaceful."

"Do you wanna go in?" He asked.

"In the ocean?" I swallowed.

"Yeah. Why what's up?" He asked concerned now.

"I... I never...." I stumbled.

"You've never been in the ocean have you." He stated.

I turned around to face him. "Is that bad?"

He shook his head, "Na, not at all."

"I'm not gonna die or get bit or stung or anything am I?" I asked.

He chuckled at me and shook his head. "Nope. And if something happens I'm there with you."

I smiled at him.

"Okay, lets do this."

Josh grabbed my hand and led me down to the waters edge. I watched and copied what he did. Well, just some of what he did. He took off his shoes and shirt. I on the other hand took off my shoes that was it. I was not wearing my bathing suit. And I wasn't going to go and strip down to my underwear and bra to go into the water.

I set my feet in, and to my surprise it was slightly warm. I was expecting it to be a little cold really.

Josh went out a little farther, and I watched. "Come on Katie." He waved at me to go further out.

I took a step, and touched something slimy. And screamed!

"Whoa, it's okay, it's okay." Josh said wrapping his arms around me. "It was just sea weed."

"Eeeww. That was so gross."

"Is everything all right?" Keegan yelled, and I could see the panic on my sisters face.

"Fine. Sea weed." Josh yelled back.

It looked like Keegan rolled his eyes and shook his head, when my sister looked relieved.

"I'm not doing this again." I said moving out of his arms to get back to the shore. Where nothing slimy can touch me.

"Not so fast." He said grabbing my hand to stop me and pulled me back.

He bent down and picked me up. "What are you doing?" I asked him.

All he did was smile at me.

Oh no.

"Put me down. Put me down. I don't want to get all wet!" I pleaded.

Josh shook his head, and in an instant I was dropped. And into the water I went.

When I surfaced, I pushed him, and splashed him. I thought it was a good idea at the time. But oh how I was wrong. It lead to us slashing and pushing each other into the water. It actually started to turn fun. I was laughing and splashing him. I stopped to catch my breath, and saw Megan and Keegan all cozy watching us from the porch.

I turned to Josh, "I think they're a little dry, what do you think?" He nodded and we both left the water to bring them in.

The four of us, splashed, chased, pushed, everything. And it was fun. The sun was about to set in an hour and we finally got out. The guys went inside to grab fire wood so that we could dry off by fire. And me and Megan grabbed a few blankets, and chairs to bring back to the beach.

I set the blanket down, knowing that Megan would take it. But the fire was going and the chairs were set up. She grabbed one of the chairs and pushed it towards another, and sat down. I was going to sit down next to her, just for a moment when Keegan took it. I shook my head, I can always talk to her later. I walked back to the blanket and found Josh sitting there. I sat with him and he wrapped his arms around me.

I smiled. But how long will I have this with him? How long will it be till we leave them? I like it here, its warm and we seem happy for once. Besides at home were its all work and no play. I love home, well maybe not all the cold all the time, but I love it. It's were mom and dad moved us last. And I couldn't ever think about living somewhere else where I couldn't be connected to them. I knew if I kept thinking about this I would end up crying. And I really didn't want to do that. Or have to deal with the questions on why I just randomly started to cry.

Eventually, after we were all mostly dry, we started talking. It wasn't much, knowing we all would be leaving each other soon.

"Hey, I have a question." Keegan said, breaking us from our silence that just started.

"What's up?" Megan asked him.

"Well me and Josh were actually going to go on a trip in like a month." He said.

"Oh yeah we were." Josh replied.

"What kind of trip?" Megan asked.

"A ski trip in Colorado." Answered Keegan.

I watched as the wheels turned in Megan's head. She loved skiing. So did I. We grew up in the snow.

She nodded. "Hell yes. I loved to go."

"They didn't ask Megan.... geez. Wait for them to ask first." I laughed.

"Well do you want to go with us?" Joshed asked me.

And I saw in his eyes that he was hoping I would say yes. I turned towards Keegan and my sister. She was staring at him longley. And he turned towards me smiling. I knew what it meant. It meant just say yes. And that's what I did.
