~Time for filming~
Ian sets up the camera and we start going through the plans with Karoline. The video is just meant to be a quick update, but we have secretly decided that we are gonna prank Karoline- by throwing her in the pool fully dressed. She is going to be so mad, but I hope she doesn't want to leave or anything like that.
“Okay,” Adam starts; “We're just going to talk about you and the new years party. Just tell them a bit about your trip over here and what you felt like when we announced it was you. And stuff like that.” “Okay, but don't you think that is going to be a bit boring?” Karoline asked. “I'm sure it will be fine! Don't worry about it,” Jerome said. “When should I start? Like, are you going to introduce me or anything?” she sounded really nervous. It was kinda cute. She really wants to do good for our channel and that is really nice of her.
We started filming and we all did our normal introductions. Adam talked a bit about how Karoline got here and then he left the word for her. “I was literally the most excited person in the world when I found out that I was going here. I started packing like the second they told me when I was coming. The flight was long, but I slept most of the way. I'm actually quit surprised that I was able to sleep. My brain was literally pumping with thoughts about if the boys was going to like me or not,” Karoline pointed at us and kept on talking. “I hope they do.” we all nodded and a big smile spreaded on her face. Ty got up from the couch and took the camera in his hand and Karoline looked really confused. Then we all grabbed her and started carrying her to the pool. “OMG, OMG, OMG! PUT ME DOWN NOW!” she yelled. We went to the deep end of the pool and she really fought against us. Ty was filming as we throw her in. “OMG, OMG,” Karoline screams as she quckly tries to get out of the pool.
OMG I need to get out of here now! I'm on my period and if I don't get up now there's gonna be blood in the pool! I swim as quickly as I can, but it's too late. I can hear I collective gasp from the boys. “Karoline I'm really sorry! We didn't even think abo-,” Adam begins, but I cut him off; “It's fine guys you didn't know, I'm sorry about your pool!” “Oh don't worry about that, it's completely our fault!” Ian says. I got to the edge of the pool and I noticed someone had reached out to help my up. I just took the hand, without thinking of who it belonged to. The hand was warm and soft. “Thanks,” I said and with that I quickly ran inside to sort myself out.
I look at Karoline while she walks inside. I can feel her embarrasment. I looked at the other boys and you could litteraly see the guilt in their eyes. “Ummm... That was probably not the best idea,” I say. The boys nodd and Jason starts to talk; “We should probably delete the footage...” we all agreed. The was an akward silence until Jerome speak; “What are we gonna do about the pool?” he scratches his neck, almost like he is nervous. “I don't really know, how stuff like this works,” Quinton replyes. “We just have to change the water,” Ian says. He is always the one who knows what to do. “I'll go check on her- just to see if she is alright,” I say. They nodd and go to figure out how to change the water.
I follow Karoline's wet footprints- first to her room, then to her bathroom. I knock on the door. “Are you okay?” I ask. I can hear her move around inside and then she responds; “Yeah, I'm okay,” she says with a small voice. It sounds like she has been crying. She opens her door and I look into her bloodshot eyes. She has put on dry clothes and her red hair is up in a messy bun, but it's still wet. “Would it be alright if I hugged you? I really need some support.” she says, it's so low that it's almost a whisper. “Of course it's alright!” I say as I pull her into a tight hug. She presses her face agianst my chest and starts to cry silently. “I'm so sorry,” I say to her. Trying to calm her down. “It's alright,” she whispers; “I've never been good in embarrassing situations.” she smells almost sweet, but also warm and loving. Can a smell be loving? - Now it can. If it was up to me I could keep on standing here for hours.
Mitch's embrase was so warm and caring. This is really what I need, after what just happened. I should have told them before they threw me in. Mitch just keeps on holding me tight and it feels like we could stand her for an eternity. “You are so beautiful,” he whispers into my hair and kisses my forehead before he lets go of me and goes out to the other boys. I just stand there. What did he even think? He can't just tell me that and leave. I run after him and grip his hand. “Thank you,” I say and kiss his cheek.
