So as promised heres the next part. Hope you enjoy. <br> <br> I woke up to a loud alarm clock blaring through the room. I groaned as i went to grab my Iphone to see what time it was. When i didn't feel it on the little night stand by the bed i jumped up to look for it. As i searched around it. I groaned as i couldn't find it. I sat on the bed and memories of what had happened yesterday morning flooded my memory. I moaned and dragged myself out of the room. As i proceeded to the kitchen i heard loud bangs of pots and pans as the aroma of fresh made breakfast crept into my nose. I quickened my pace and made it to the kitchen as i saw Elijah cooking breakfast. I sarted to drool as i saw a full plate of pancakes in the middel of the table. I must've been staring at them for quite some time as i was inturupted by the clearing of someone throat. The noice came from behind me and i turned around quickly to see Efrain in just some basketball short. I started to look at his perfectly tanned skin and his muscules and abs. After a minute or two he chuckled and said , "Like what you see , babe?" I turned around as heat crept up to my cheeks. I sat down in a chair and began to dig into the pankcakes. The other boy have came in and got their plates as well. I started to eat the pankcakes hungrily and Drake looked at me and smirked then looked at Blake and said , "Looks like we have a little piglet in our house." Blake started to laugh and said to the boys , "Better guard our fridge before she eats all the food up." They laughed and i quickly got up and ran up to the room as tears threatened to spill. I closed the door behind me and went to the walk in bathroom and decided to take a shower. I took a hot shower and wrapped the towel around my body. I groaned as i had forgot to ask for clothes. I walk back into the room and was greeted by Elijahs light brown eyes staring at me. "ELIJAH !" I screamed and ran back into the bathroom , locking myself in it. "Kaitlynn , I'm really sorry. I didn't mean to invade your privacy. I just wanted to give you some clothes." He said through the door and i heard the door open and close again. I peeked my head through the crack in the door and scanned the room to make sure he left. I quickly took the clothes and put them on. They fit perfectly. 'Thats a little creepy and stalkerish how they know my size.' I thought to myself. I pulled my hair into a messy bun and left to the kitchen. No one was in there so i checked all the rooms in the house. 'Hmm , no one in the house. Where are they ?" I asked myself. I walked into the garage to be greeted by five handsome boys. Blake looked at me and he motioned me toward him. I slowly preceeded towards him. He spoke , "So , for the first part of your training you will be learning to shoot a gun." I groaned and hoped i would do well with this part. I also hoped that they wouldnt find out my fear of guns. <br> <br> ~ I hope you enjoyed this part. Again go to 'black button' first result and reply with 'to Baby Bry' and tell me what you think. Three good comments for another part. Please no hate. Bye now. c: &Delta
