Wonderstruck

Do you ever just see a beautiful stranger? Not just a stranger that looks nice, but a really beautiful stranger who just captures you with the way they look and the way they act and makes you think about them at 2 am. A beautiful stranger that leaves you wonder struck and makes you somehow want to see them again and be with them forever yet at the same time, make you want to stay away from them so they remain this mysterious beautiful person that's in the world that would never hurt you.
I should have gone with the latter.

Rosy's point of view

I wasn't expecting to feel anything going back into my room, I just wanted to get out of the sun and away from all the mayhem for a while, but I have to admit, it's nice to be back in here. However much the flat with Ethan feels like home, this is the home that's just mine, that I never had to share with anybody apart from Noah and that wasn't really an issue. I don't share this with Ethan though. I want something that's just mine and not his, and this is it. Not in a mean way, it's just a thing. 

"This is so fun." he smiles, lying down on the bed. "Your family is so nice."

I smile back. "I'm glad you're enjoying yourself."

He grins, pulling me harshly but playfully down next to him. We both lie there happily gazing up at the ceiling. It's so nice to just lie here with him away from all the noise and the heat and the talking, just for a while. The two of us can be alone together. Even if we need a break from everybody in the world, we can take that break together. We just naturally go together and I like that.

"You think Rain's having fun?" he asks.

"Rain is having the most fun I've ever seen him have." I promise.

"Wait til he goes to Alton Towers with us."

I smile at the thought of that day. "I can't wait."

Ethan frowns all of a sudden, as if he's listening out for something. I frown too.

"What?" 

"I think I just heard your dad."

I sit up. "What do you mean you just heard my dad?" 

"I mean I think he's here, Rosy, what are we gonna do?" 

I listen for a moment and hear my dad talking with my mum. I hear them both start walking up the stairs. I'm frozen to the spot with shock but thank god for Ethan. He grabs my hand and pulls me up, hiding us both in the tiny wardrobe just in case they come in here. I know my mum will stop him if she can, but sometimes you can't stop my dad. I hear the bedroom door open and they both walk in.

"Ethan-"

"Sh." he puts a finger to my lips, hushing me. I nod.

"I told you, Rose isn't here." I hear my mum say, firmly.

"Honestly, Louise, you think she'd leave that boy alone to come to her own little brother's birthday party." my dad says. 

"I don't think she'd want to come anywhere near here after how you acted with her and Ethan."

"I was trying to look out for her."

"At first, perhaps. But then it was just about your own ego. I know you're her father and you love her very much but right now, I think Ethan is what's best for her."

"Louise-"

"Just go and see Rain, will you?" she snaps. We hear my dad leave the room and my mum tells us it's okay to come out. We step out into the room and she bites her lips, worriedly. 

"Mum..." I say, though I don't know where I was going with it.

"You guys should probably go." she says in a quiet voice. "I swear I didn't know he was coming home, he surprised us. I'm so sorry."

"It's okay, Louise." Ethan shakes his head, smiling gently. "These things happen."

She nods, smiling briefly before the worried look comes back again. She glances out of the window into the garden. "Okay, he's out there now, you guys should go now."

"Bye mom." I force a smile because it's really not her fault. "Love you."

"Love you sweetheart." she kisses my cheek and then kisses Ethan's as well. "Thanks for coming Ethan. Rain adores you."

He smiles as he takes my hand and we walk out of the party, along the street to his car. I'm upset. I'm not angry with anybody, not even my dad. I'm just sad. We were having a really fun day and it was ruined. My life is at a point where we have to sneak out of my younger brother's birthday party. That just sucks. 

We get home and I go stand in the kitchen and start making us cups of tea. Ethan follows. 

"What do you want for dinner tonight?" he asks after a moment of silence. 

I shrug. "Anything's good. Whatever you want."

"We could order pizza."

"I don't care, just order whatever."

He sighs. "Rosy. I get why you'd resent me after today but you don't have to act like this."

I laugh a little. "E, I don't resent you at all. I'm just sad. I'm not mad with anyone, I'm just upset. It has nothing to do with you, don't worry."

He sighs a little relieved sigh and takes my hands. "Remember what you always used to say?"

I shrug. "What's that?" 

"You used to always say 'We'll be okay'. I miss you saying that." he smiles a little. "There was never a time where you said it and I didn't believe you."

I smile back, not really knowing what to say to something as special as that. I just hope he knows what I'm trying to say with that smile and there is never a time that I don't believe that he understands me.
