UNDER THE POOL
The days went on smoothly. Alice finally gain the peace she needed. Isabella never bothered her again. No kidnapping happened or anything worst, but the guys' ogling over her did not stop showing their intention. Everything became a routine, and her friend, Chloe, has been very busy with their cheerleading practice. The compet.i.tion is coming so they need to work hard and perfect their routine, as well as the basketball team, that she never saw Phillip again. She had never seen Eros too after the incident at the canteen, Rain was busy at the student council, and she only managed to see Don twice.
Weekend came and the students are gone to have some fun outside the Academy. Mr Falon has mentioned that a bus service is waiting at the fron gate every sat.u.r.day then would wait at a certain area in the town until Sunday, so it will bring the students back at the academy again. Chloe had gone with her friends too so Alice was left alone in the enormous academy, exactly what she needed.
Making her way at the gymnasium building she changed her casuals into her swimming uniform. It was a one piece suit that hugs her body tightly. Warming up for a minute Alice slowly soak her body under the pool. The water is warm on her skin, so she slowly let herself sink under the water and sat down on its floor-- the pressure building on her head.
Alice hugged her knees and closed her eyes, then she cried silently under the water.
Aria's death anniversary is on October 31st, it will be three weeks from now and she couldn't help but remember the good times they had together. Her sister has always been there with her, she was her keeper, her best friend, her protector, and her partner in crime.
When she needed to breathe again she resurface from the water again, and swims from one end to another of the pool. She paddled her feet as fast as she can, hands stretching and making its way back and forth. Alice stopped to calm her breathing again then swam again, that's when her head b.u.mp into something hard.
"Oh my gos.h.!.+" She breathe. "W-what are you doing here?!" Eros is at the middle of the pool, the water only reaches his bare chest, arms crossed he regarded her with a look.
"I've been here all along."
"I did not see you."
He c.o.c.ked his head. "It's not my fault you are oblivious to your surrounding."
"You did not leave the academy? It's weekend." Alice asked, watching how the droplets of water in his bangs trickle down his face down to his neck, then... She gulped.
"I can leave the academy whenever I want to."
"But the school bus only came during sat.u.r.day." She stepped back a little, the water on her neck swinging slightly.
"I have my own car." He stepped forward. "You are a fast swimmer, you know. Why don't you join the swimming club?"
"You've been watching me."
"I was wondering why are you swimming back and forth non-stop."
She shrugged before swimming back at the end of the pool and pulled herself up. Alice sat down at the edge where her feet is still dipped in the water. She just watched Eros swims, his back muscles clenching and unclenching as it moves underwater, then he stopped in front of her.
"How about you?" He asked, his breathing composed.
"What about me?"
"Why are you here? It's weekend."
Alice shrugged her shoulders. "I don't have anything to do outside." Preparing herself to stand Eros immediately grabbed her wrist and pulled her.
Their face inches away from each other.
"W-what are you doing?" Asked Alice. Staring at his pair of dark orbs she can't help but drown in it, his eyes are beautifully dangerous.
"I'll take you outside." He told her staring back at her eyes. "Where do you want to go?"
Alice tried to pull back but Eros grips tightened.
"I'll pa.s.s." She managed to say, pulling back her arm again he finally let go.
"What? I said I'll take you outside, that is not a question."
She stood up from where she is sitting and started walking away from the pool, body dripping wet.
"A no is a no, Mr Ziegler."
"Aren't you a little moody this day?" She heard him muttered.
"Aren't you a little overpowering this day?"
Eros raised his eyebrow at her. Pulling his self up from the pool he grabbed for the nearby towel.
"You have blood on your b.u.t.t, sweetheart!" He yelled while wiping the wet on his body.
"What?!" Alice stopped from her tracks to look at her back, and the guy's not lying. There are red spots on her b.u.t.t. Feeling the heat on her face she yelled back at him. "Go to h.e.l.l!"
Eros chuckled. "My soul is already in h.e.l.l, strawberry."
Then Alice ran because of embara.s.sment. She sprinted at the field with only her one piece as a clothing. It's a good thing that the students are gone or she could had made the headline for running around the academy wearing nothing but a swimsuit-- plus the red dots on her b.u.t.t.
After changing into her casuals and putting on a pad she laid down at her bed. Alice was just about to doze off, her eyelids getting heavier, when the door from somewhere behind her opened. She jerked upright, an annoyed expression plastered on her face.
"Really? Are you a burglar or something?"
Eros smiled at her. Putting down the plastic he is carrying he leaned at the nearby wall, his back to it.
"Why would you think that?"
"How did you enter?"
"By the door?"
Her lips quirked. "And I locked the door."
"No, you forgot to lock it."
Alice crossed her arms. The guy is irritating him and now she does not care if his family is involve in mafia or if he is handsome, she just wanted to have some peace while the others are gone.
"Then lock it!"
Eros' smile widened. "You want me to lock the door?" He asked, walking towards the foot of the bed. "With only the two of us in here?"
"No!" She gawked. "Leave now then lock the door behind you!"
He chuckled at her. The coldness in his face leaving for a while.
"You are so chatty today!" Alice mumbled.
"At least, I am not someone who's having her monthly period."
"Go to h.e.l.l!" She lunged at him, but Eros is fast enough to counter her. Before she can even hit him in the face her back already meet the soft mattress, Eros on top of him. He gripped both of her hands upward with one hand.
"You already said that, strawberry." He chuckled, but his eyes darkening in the process. "I will leave. I just brought you some food. You can eat it later when you are in the mood."
She pursed her lips when he removed his grip and left the room. That short moment made her heart beats in an abnormal way and she does not like it. Shaking her head she reached for the plastic bag that Eros left for her. There are two styroes inside, a number of strawberries, and two bottled waters.
Alice enjoyed her food with a smile plastered on her face.
