I noticed that everyone gathered back on the bus Everyone except for Frank. Gerard's hands were shaking. "Gee, are you ok? You look frozen." Gerared shot a death glare at me and didn't answer. The bus slowly started moving. I looked around, confused. "Hey, what about Frank? Are we just gonna leave him?" Bob turned away from me and Ray answered. "We're gonna go get him." I wanted to say more, but it seemed like everyone wanted silence.I just sat there. After what seemed like an hr, I felt the bus slow down to a stop, and the door's open. Frank walked in, red eyes, runny nose, lips blue , shivering, with Bella in his arms, sleeping. Bob took her from him, placing her in the recliner. Gerard handed him some hot cocoa, and sat him down. "What happened? Are you ok?" Frank nodded and sipped the warm cocoa. I couldn't help but look Bella over. Her hair fell so perfectly into her face, her mouth partly open, it was amazing. She curled into the smallest ball, like she was trying to hide within herself. But, I also noticed how tear stained her face was, how dry and chapped her perfect lips were, and how she shivered. I felt awful....
Bob laid a blanket over her and sat back down, shaking his head slightly. "Frank,..." Frank sniffed and wiped his nose a little before getting up and sittin with Bella. She stirred slightly and laid softly on his chest. "Bella, get up. You promised to explain......" Bella sighed and sat up. "Oh, yeah. but...." She stole a glance at the rest of the guys and blushed. "Frank tilted her head to look at him "Just forget they're here. Just talk to me." She nodded and laid back down on his chest. "Alice told me that she knew we weren't together. She also told me to stay, eh, get away from Mikey, how she knew I love him. That I was a pitiful, lost puppy. How, you guys really don't need me anymore." Bella felt as Frank's hands gripped the blanket around her. "But she's wrong about one thing." She felt as Frank's eyes looked at her with his full attention. "I don't really love Mikey as I used to. It was just some silly school girl crush. I'm over it. I just wanted to get away from her." She smiled softly. "I'm sorry for worring you..." Gee stood up and hugged her small frame. "Don't you ever do that again. "She nodded. "Alright Gee." Bob and Ray joined into the group hug. "We love you too much to lose you again.' Bob pulled her from the middle and ruffled her hair. "Besides, we don't want Alice here, we need you..." She smiled sweetly and sniffed. Frank could see the tears creep into her eyes. "Come here baby." She gave a half sob, half laugh and fell into his outstretched arms. Alice laughed. "You've got to be kidding me!?!" Gerard turned to her with this threating lookin in his eyes. "Look Alice, your lucky your with my baby brother, or I'd kick your ass." Alice stood up. "I like to see you try. I mean, come on. Gerard, you know you can't do that...what will the papers say?" Bella shook her head. "Who gives a damn what the papers say. You need to shut your mouth because I'm tired of putting up with your stupid shit." Alice laughed "And what are you going to do about it Barbie?" Before anyone could even blink, Bella jumped from Frank's arms and started swinging at Alice, throwing her back into Mikey's lap. "Thats what I'm going to do." Frank stood up and held her from taking another swing. "Baby...don't..." Bella stopped and relaxed into his arms. "Frank...." He looked at her sternly and shook his head. "Come on...lets go to bed..." She nodded and was about to walk away when Alice spoke. "What happened to you both not being together?" Bella shrugged. "I don't know." She took Frank's hand and interlaced her fingers. "All I know is that I'm falling for him..." Mikey's heart stopped. This was the one thing he didn't want happening. How...? Why....? Was he that stupid....? Frank smiled and pulled her in close. "And its no joke that I fell for you already..." She giggled and they both walked into the bunk room. Bob laughed a little bit. "Alice got her ass beat." Soon, the other guys burst into laughter. Alice looked at Mikey. "What the hell? Why didn't you say something?" Mikey shook his head. "Shut up. You tried to get my best friend to leave.... I can't even look at you anymore..."
Some part of me knew that Alice made Bella run. But what was hurting the most was that I made her run right to Frank. I should've known that it would end like this. But, I didn't expect the heartache. Just was I was about to get up, Bella and Frank walk back out. She was smiling. "Oh, yeah, here are the pics we took today." She tossed Gee an envalope and he opened it, which led to him passing them around. Bob smiled. "Wow, these are awesome..." Bella giggled. "Yeah, they are..." I saw as Frank looked over his picture and pulled Bella in close. "We look good together. Your so beautiful." She blushed under his praise and looked away. When I saw that picture we took together, I smiled softly. We were so close. I could feel her breath on my face, count the individual hairs in her lashes, see the many flecks of green in her eyes, her heart beating on my chest, hard and strong, and see that she wanted to stay like that forever. Her body was so small compared to mine. I looked up and we locked eyes. I know that she could feel it...She was the first to look away, blushing like mad. She was so beautiful when she was embarrassed. I snapped out of it when Gerard spoke. "I think the one me and her took, looks so much better. I mean, hello, we're sexy." I couldn't help but laugh, and I saw as Bella giggled and agreed. "Oh yeah Gerard. It was soooo wonderful to be in your arms." He smiled aprovingly and ran his hands through his short blonde hair. "Damn, I miss my hair..." That must've been funny to her because her laugh filled the room. "Well Gee, you shouldn't have cut it....der." Ray laughed and held his up. "Hey, I might have had to share her with Bob, but I think I look better. My hair is soo damn sexy." My eyes followed Bella as she jumped from Frank to Ray, mussing up his hair. "NOPE, MINE IS NOW!!! MUWAHAHAHAHA....fake cough.... yeah...." As everyone was laughing I looked over and found Alice, pissed. "Ok, I thought you were going to leave??" Bella stopped and looked at her as if she was going to kill. That's when my mind finally clicked. "ALICE, SHUT...UP.." Alice looked at me appalled. "What?" I smirked at her. "You heard me. Shut up. For once, try to get that stick out of your ass and have fun. If you got to know Bella, you'd love her." I looked over and saw that Bella had tears in her eyes, but a smile on her face. She shook her head furiously and wiped them away. "I'm going to sleep....night you guys." She hugged and kissed everyone, including me. "Thanks Mikey, that was so sweet." I nodded as she pulled away and smiled at her. "Night baby." She giggled and blushed. "Night Frank." I watched the way her hair and hips swayed away to the bunk room. (I rhymed!!! lol)
Alice looked at Mikey with a bit of hate in her eyes. "What was up with that? I thought you were on my side??!?" Mikey rolled his eyes. "I was, but frankly, your a bitch to her. Bella is the sweetest person alive, and, I've just seen you egg us all on. So, please, just shut up.."Alice shut her mouth and turned away. "Fine Michael.." Mikey shook his head and sighed. Later on that night, when everyone was asleep, Miky snuck into the living room. He wasn't sleepy, just....blah. He turned on a movie and laid there for a while. Then he heard a thud, which made him jump. Yet again, Frank was in the living area, and again, in boxers. He smiled. "Sup man. Shouldn't you be asleep?" Mikey shook his head and Frank sat next to him. "Oh, so what's wrong? You couldn't sleep next to dear old alice?" Mikey laughed and sighed. "Yeah, that's it." Frank smiled and looked at the screen. "Are you and Bella serious, or just toying around?" Frank's smile dropped. "Uh, we're serious...when I found her, she was pretty tired, and worn out. She told me that she was falling inlove with me..." Mikey hung his head. "Yeah, I figured.." Frank patted his back. "I want to tell her that I can't be with her, but for some odd reason I can't. I don't want to break her heart any more than it already is.." Mikey nodded his head in understanding> "It's just, that, I was thinking about her so much, and I wanted her. But, I remembered Alice....and it was like, I couldn't think that way about her anymore." Frank sighed. "I know how that is. I think, that's Bella's effect on guys. She's the type of girl you want, but know you can't have...." Mikey nundged him. "But you have her Frank. I don't...I lost that chance." Frank shook his head. "You didn't lose your chance, you just have to wait for it. I can tell you now that what's between Bella and me, won't last long. She's way different than I am..She'll see that she still loves you man." Then Frank stood up and left. Mikey sat there for a while longer till he finally dragged his hide to sleep.
