Hello. Welcome to my story. It's the classic SBM girl joins the gang story. Please just give it a chance. I know you will like it! Thank you very much!
(I do not own Stand By Me/ The Body. I only own Rosemary Loviah.
So here I am at my new house. Out of all the family we have, we just had to stay with the Lachance family. My name is Rosemary Loviah. I'm 14 years old. Gordie Lachance is my cousin on my mom's side. My dad left us about 7 months ago. I don't really care though, he was an asshole. Castle Rock seemed so…old and…boring. At least I already know someone my age around here. Maybe Gordie could introduce me to his friends.
Speaking of Gordie, he really has grown up over the years. He used to visit my family in California every once in a while. He not only got a little taller, but he gained a little muscle too. Although, it still looked like he ate twigs for every meal of the day.
Sometimes it seems like he has the perfect life. Then I remember everything that's going on with him right now.
"Hey Rose!" Gordie shouted "You wanna go outside?"
"Sure!" I yelled back "Just let me put something else on."
I reached into my suitcase and pulled out something quick to put on. I threw on a pink tank top, some jean shorts, and my converse.
I looked in the mirror and examined myself for a second. My green eyes were staring back at me. My dark brown hair was in a messy bun. I then looked down at my stomach. Thanks to my mom, I was super insecure about my weight. I sucked my stomach in as much as I could. The real challenge is staying like this for the whole day without anyone noticing flab.
"Okay all set."
"Mom we're leaving!" Gordie shouted before leaving out the door. She didn't seem to care though because she was too busy catching up with my mom.
"So where are we going Gordo?"
"Nowhere special, we're just going up to the tree house to see the guys."
As we climbed up, Gordie did some type of weird knock and waited for a response
"Come on up Gordie." I heard a voice call from inside the tree house
As we entered the tree house, I got a lot more nervous. I have never met these guys in my life. Of course my stomach was turning upside down.
"Hey guys. I want you to meet someone. This is my cousin. The one I was telling you about."
"Hey." I said nervously "I'm Rose."
I looked over all of their faces. They all looked shocked and surprised. Am I doing something wrong already!
"This is your cousin?" one of the boys shouted. He wore thick glasses, had dog tags and his ear looked as if it was made out of wax. But besides these things, he was kind of cute…..in a weird way.
"She's a girl?" he continued like it was the most shocking thing in the world
"I thought you said your cousin smokes and fights a lot."
"I do smoke and occasionally get into little fights." I answered for myself
"Shit Gordie! How did you forget to mention that she's a girl?
"Don't pay attention to him Rose. That's just Teddy." Said Gordie "This right here is Vern." He said pointing to a short chubby boy. I could already tell that he gets made fun of a lot. I just waved at him with a slight smile on my face.
"And last but not least, this is Chris."
"How's it going?" smiled Chris
Hoping that I'm not blushing, I smile back. Looking into his deep blue eyes was like being in a trance. After a couple seconds of staring and smiling at each other, I finally break eye contact and look down at my feet.
I sat down and took a cigarette out my pocket. As I put it in my mouth, I patted my pockets. Great, I left my lighter in the house. As if reading my mind, Chris took a lighter out of his pocket.
"Here. Let me." He smiled as he lit the cigarette that was still in my mouth.
I took the cigarette out of my mouth and let out a big puff of smoke.
"Thanks." I smiled
"No problem." He put the lighter back in his pocket and continued doing whatever he was doing.
After about three hours of watching the guys play cards, hearing Teddy's crazy Eeeeeeeeee-Eeeeeeee-Eeeeeeeeee laugh, and hearing everyone bag on Vern things finally started to die down. Vern decided to leave and went home.
"Well I guess I should be going too," Said Chris. "Bye guys." Before he left he turned and smiled at me. "Bye Rose. Will you be here tomorrow?"
I nodded my head and smiled
"Okay, well I'll see you then." With that, he left.
"Rose I'm gonna go walk with Chris. Teddy knows where the house is so he'll walk you home…. right Teddy?"
"I'll be honored." Teddy said jokingly
"I'll see you at home." Said Gordie
When Gordie left, it was just me and Teddy. I just couldn't bring myself to stop staring at his features.
"So if you don't mind me asking….What happened to your ear?"
First he just looked up and stared at me. His eyes seemed to be connected to mine.
"Sorry you don't have to answer if you don't want to." I said
"Naw, it's cool. When I was younger, my father held my ear up to a stove and tried to burn it off."
"Ouch." I cringed "Sorry about that."
"It's fine. He's in Togus now. I know he didn't mean to do it."
"My dad ran away a couple of months ago. I didn't really like him to begin with so it doesn't really matter to me." I added
"You know Rose; I have a feeling we're going to get along well."
I gave him a light smile. He looked at me and smiled back. There was something about him that just made me want to know more about him.
"So you ready to go?" he asked
"Yeah let's go."
We walked in silence for a couple of minutes.
"My mom's gonna be happy about all this walking I'm doing. She used to be a model so she wants me to lose some weight. She's not really satisfied with me right now. She said my bodies not right yet and I'm not pretty enough to be a model like her yet. But with the tips she's giving me she says I'll be there in no time." I told him
Teddy got in front of me and stopped me from walking. He eyed me head to toe.
"You look pretty to me." He told me and kept walking
I smiled at the compliment. My cheeks got warm. No one ever compliments me.
"No problem. No offence but your mom sounds like a total ass wipe."
His comment stopped me in my tracks.
"Um excuse me but who the hell are you to insult my mother?"
"I'm just saying, your mom is supposed to cheer you up not put you down."
How did this conversation go so wrong so fast? I asked myself
"You have no right to judge my mother! She's just helping me out!" I screamed
"You call her telling you your bodies not right helping you? You're crazy! Looks like your dumb ass mom passed it on to you!" he yelled back
"We'll you're a psychotic asshole!" I yelled at the top of my lungs
"You're gonna find out real soon how psychotic I really am!"
And just like that Teddy stormed away and I went in the house. What an eventful first day. I thought in my head
