Part 11 - Two
"Rose," I hear Makayla's voice. "Come on," I feel Makayla shake me.
"Her eyes are fluttering," I hear Keeho say softly.
"Give her a second," Nicole whispers.
"Did she die?" Theo asks.
"No you dumbass," Intak says then I hear a smacking sound and Theo groan.
"She had a panic attack," makayla says. "Theo who was she on the phone with?"
"I don't know," Theo sighs. "I didn't hear her say a name."
"You guys are loud," I whisper and open my eyes. I see Makayla sitting right beside me, Keeho is standing over the bed, Intak and Theo are standing a bit away from me, and Nicole is standing by Keeho. "What happened?" I sit up slowly.
"You passed out," Makayla says gently, rubbing my back. "Who were you on the phone with?"
"I don't remember," I lie. "Maybe my mom?"
"Check your call log," Nicole says and reaches for my phone. I grab it quickly and put it under my thigh.
"It was my mom, I remember now," I glance at Makayla. She squints at me.
"You're lying," she points her finger. "What are you lying about?"
"Nothing!" I slide off of the bed and grip my phone. "Nothing," I whisper and take a deep breath. Nicole sighs and reaches into her bag. "I need to take your temperature now," she says. "I took the others and they're all normal, if you're normal you don't have to stay in here anymore."
"Can we back track for a second," Keeho crosses his arms. "Why would your mom make you pass out?"
"Maybe I had low blood sugar," I watch Nicole but the no touch thermometer to my head. "I don't know," I whisper.
"Okay it's normal," Nicole nods.
"You're stressing yourself too much," Makayla tilts her head. "We should go get drinks, and have a girls night, get us back into a healthy spirit."
"Tonight?" I ask, gripping my phone so tight I look down seeing my knuckles turn white.
"Yeah, if you're feeling up to it," Makayla stands up and puts an arm around my shoulder. "If you feel too sick we don't have to." I loosen my grip on my phone. I need to relax.
"No no," I smile a bit. "That sounds like fun," I nod.
"Okay," Makayla smiles. "Nicole we would love for you to come."
"We? But rose didn't say anything..." Nicole laughs.
"We share a brain, I know what she's thinking," Makayla moves her arm from my shoulder. "Well it's 4pm right now, so let's meet at the front entrance at 6?"
"Okay," Nicole smiles wide. "Fun!"
"Fun indeed," I laugh a bit, pushing down my anxiety. I look to Theo, but he isn't looking at me. He sticks his hands in his pocket.
"It's been fun grumpy," I say to Theo. "Thanks for putting up with me."
"Mhm," Theo nods. I bite the inside of my cheek and go to walk out, but Keeho grabs my arm. I watch Makayla and Nicole leave, then Intak and Theo after them.
"There's something you aren't telling me," he says in a sing song voice.
"No there is not," I shake my arm from him and turn around. He raises his eyebrows.
"You don't have low blood sugar Rose," he pokes my forehead. "If you did you would be eating every time we eat."
"Well," I try to think of a lie. "It comes and goes."
"Not how it works," Keeho laughs. "What's really going on?"
"Nothing Keeho I'm fine," I give him a small smile. "I promise."
"Pinky?" He sticks out his pinky.
"We aren't five!" I slap his hand away, I really didn't want to make a pinky promise over this. "I have to go get ready, you're free to come hangout with me."
"Say less," Keeho puts his hand on my head and messes up my hair, then goes out the door. I huff, grabbing my bag, then going after him. We walk into my room and go to my other bags. I squat down looking for a dress. I pull out a few. "Fashion show?" Keeho smiles, sitting on my bed.
"Fashion show," I nod.
"Hey Intak can I talk to you?" I ask him, catching up to his fast pace.
"Sure," he nods. "Everything okay?"
"Yeah I'm just curious about something," I watch Intak stop walking, and I stop with him.
"What's up?" He smiles.
"How do you know when you like someone?" I ask with a weak laugh.
"Well," he furrows his brows. "Why?"
"I'm just wondering, my friend has a crush on someone and wanted to know. But I can't really help him cause I don't like anyone," I lie about the friend part.
"Oh ah," he shifts. "Well your heart starts to race when you see them," he pauses. I think. That doesn't happen to me. "You get butterflies," he nods. "You blush around them, stutter, you always want to be around them, yanno like the stuff you see in movies," he leans against the wall. I nod, I felt none of that. I smile a bit.
"Cool thanks," I nod. I tap the wall, neither of us are moving. "Um," I whistle. "I'm going to go shower," I give an awkward smile and head to my room. I felt nothing Intak described, so I definitely didn't have a crush.
"Are you sure about this one?" I ask looking at myself in the mirror. Keeho chose a light blue skin tight dress. I turn to him. He grins.
"Yes, yes yes yes," he nods, leaning back. I roll my eyes and throw a shirt at him.
"You're so creepy!" I laugh. I grab my makeup and sit down in front of the full length mirror.
"It's not creepy to admire my beautiful best friend," he throws the shirt on my bag.
"Ah," I shake my head. "Shut your mouth, I'm far from beautiful," I lean close to the mirror, putting on foundation.
"Nah," Keeho shakes his head. "I don't think so, you're gonna be the star of tonight."
"Shhhh," I smile a bit, getting concealer and putting it under my eyes. "You flatter me."
"As I should," he gets up and sits down by me. "You do makeup weird."
"Hey if you're gonna judge the way I do makeup, get out," I laugh. He raises his hands.
"Sorry, sorry," he gets out his phone.
"Do you and the boys have plans?" I ask him.
"Mhm," he nods. "We are gonna watch a movie tonight."
"Oooh fun!" I grab the setting powder and put it under my eyes.
"Do you even drink by the way?" He asks looking at me in the mirror. I shrug.
"Sometimes," I say and get out my eyeshadow, looking at the colors. I dip my brush into the natural eyeshadow color, putting it on my eyelid. "But like I don't know, it's not my favorite thing."
"Ah," he watches me put on the eyeshadow. "Do you smoke weed?"
"Keeho!" I hit his shoulder. "Of course I do!" I say with a grin. His smile fades.
"Wait actually?" We watch each other.
"... depends on your thoughts," I squint.
"I think it's cool, I haven't done it in awhile," he says.
"I see," I look at the eyeshadow pallet. "Then thats for me to know and you to find out," I smile.
"Boring," he laughs.
"I haven't done it since I lived in America so," I start putting makeup on to my other eye. "Why do you ask?"
"I don't know you seem like the type to smoke," he laughs a bit.
"Wow," I dip my finger into the sparkles, putting them on my eyelid. "I'm honored." I shut the eyeshadow and grab out my eyeliner, I put bold wings on both eyes. I then grab my fake lashes and put them on.
"Whoa," he blinks. "When did your eyelashes grow?"
"Idiot these are fake lashes," I laugh, positioning them correctly.
"It was a joke Jesus," he nudges my shoulder. I roll my eyes and grab a nude lipstick, I put it on. I then grab my setting spray and spray it on my face. I stand up and go to my shoes. I look down at them and grab a sparkly sliver high heels and slip them on. I grin down at Keeho who is still on the floor.
"I'm taller than you," I grin. He stands up, I am not taller than him. "Never mind!" I reach down and grab my purse, sliding my turned off phone into it.
"You look really good," he smiles. "How do you feel?"
"Uncomfortable," I laugh a little and pull down my dress. "But I'm sure I'll have fun."
"Of course you will," he nods. "I'll walk with you to entrance." I nod and smile at him. I look at myself one more time in the mirror, and take a deep breath. I walk out with Keeho, shutting the door behind me. We walk to the front doors. I see Makayla standing there, in a red dress, her makeup is bold and sparkly.
"Whoa!" I grin. "Who let a model into the building?"
"Oh shut up!" Makayla laughs. "Look at yourself! You're the real model!"
"Psssh," I smile and look behind me, seeing Nicole walking up. She's in a black dress, and her makeup is more subtle. I smile. "Another model, wow," I shake my head.
"You guys look great," Nicole smiles and walks to stand beside me.
"Jiung come look at this!" Keeho calls, Makayla turns away from us, she whistles.
"Why are you yell..." I hear Jiung trail off. I turn around, he's staring right at Makayla.
"Guys the movie is about to start shut up.." Intak stops and stares at Nicole. "Whoa."
"Jesus Christ what are you guys doing?" I watch Theo walk out. He stares at me.
I feel my heat racing and think back to what Intak said. Your heart starts to race... I look away from Rose. Clearing my throat. "Where are you guys going?"
"To a bar," Makayla says, walking to Roses side. "Rose you're gonna have so many guys on you tonight." I feel my cheeks heat up a bit.
"Can we go?" I hear Jiung ask. "Keep the creepy boys away."
"Yeah that sounds like a good idea," Intak agrees.
"Right," I nod and look back at Rose. I bite the inside of my cheek. "What if you have another panic attack?"
"I'll be fine!" She smiles. "Plus you have to watch the kids," she motions to the room where the other members are.
"Yeah," Nicole says, agreeing to them. "Go watch the kids!" She then laughs a bit. I raise my eyebrows.
"I think we should go," I say quietly, taking my eyes off of Rose.
"No," Rose says and points at me. "I don't want mr grumpy ruining my night." I roll my eyes.
"Whatever," I turn and walk back into the room. I stand there, putting my fingers to my neck to feel my pulse. Why is my heart beating so fast? I shake off the feeling and go to sit by Soul.
