6. Chapter 6
(We see a small crush on Jerome from Amber. Is this the beginning of something big? Let's find out!)
I didn't want to leave the soup kitchen. It was warm and comforting. I was lost in watching flecks of dust fall from the ceiling. I was intrigued. Finally I was snapped out of my observation when I felt a hand on my shoulder. I jumped and found that Mitch was just trying to get my attention. I walked with him to the car, Noah was shocked. He asked where I was being dropped off. Mitch explained the situation. I was tired and really scared. Did they really want me to live with them? Should I tell them that I know who they are? Will they ask me the questions I am so scared to answer? I was really scared. I was seated next to Jerome. I moved close to him. I was a mess. It had been 11 years since I had last cleaned myself up. He didn't seem to care though. I cuddled in. He was warm and strong. I can hear his heat beating and his breathing. I whispered not to worry, I was just scared. He accepted it and just held me in his arms. I was soon asleep in his arms.
She seemed tense. I sat in front of her and Jerome. She seemed really frightened. I saw her snuggle close to Jerome. He looked uncomfortable and looked to me. I saw her whisper something in his ear. I couldn't make out what she said, but Jerome relaxed quite a bit. She was soon asleep in his arms. I felt jealousy as I saw what was going on. I wondered about how the other guys would feel if they saw this. She looked so peaceful there in his arms I almost felt sorry that I was jealous. Jerome just looked at me and shrugged. I wasn't sure if he was enjoying it or if he was scared. I soon drifted off to sleep too.
She had to sit next to me? Why couldn't have Mitch or Matt sat next to her? She looked truly frightened. I felt sorry for her. I wondered what was going through her head. She is probably thinking of better places to be, especially since Matt practically forced her to come. Does she like me as much as I like her? She leaned in and cuddled with me. I looked to Mitch, scared. I tensed up. My heart raced. My breathing shortened. She leaned towards my ear. I was even more scared. Mitch looked jealous. She whispered up to me, "It's all good, I'm just tired and scared." She soon fell asleep in my arms. I looked at Mitch. He seemed so mad. Why was he so mad? He knows we all like her. She was the most beautiful creature alive, after all. Oh well, I'll just let her sleep it off. She had a long, interesting day.
Shoot, Jerome's got a lead on me. She's sleeping on him and he looks darn happy. Ughhh! Why am I so jealous, I just met her? Oh well. "How's it going there, Jerome?" I asked with with a glare in my eye. He seemed rather scared by this outburst. "J-Just fine." He answers. He seems so awkward around her. Love, he's definitely in love. Just my luck, which I won't have with Amber. Dang. Well, we'll just have to wait and see what happens.
I must not think of Amber while I drive. Well, I could think about the state of the house and Jason. He's so broken hearted, poor kid. Just a few more miles and then we can ask the questions we want to ask her. I bet we all have some. I looked into the rear view mirror. Dang! Amber is asleep in Jerome's arms. I hear some honking and realize I'm in the wrong lane. I knew I shouldn't have thought about her. We almost wrecked! My mind went back to the house. We pulled into the drive way and I prepared for the sight of the house and prepared all the questions I wanted to ask.
(Well, that's the chapter! Hope you enjoyed and hope I can keep it interesting!)
