Natalia's POV:

I hardly ever slept for three days Ross was in the hospital. I was so lonely. I meant I had Mark, Stormie, Riker, Rydell, Ratliff, Rocky, and Ryland. But they wouldn't cuddle with me like Ross would have.

Ross was coming home today!!! Nobody would let me go see him. They wanted it to be a special occasion for Ross and I.
I was in the living room talking to Rocky and Rydel.

"Rocky!!!" I say as he throws me over his shoulder.

"Natalia! Quit poking my back!" He says laughing.

"Only when you set me down." I say.

"Okay, then...". He says as the door swings open.

"We're home!!!" Stormie yells from the front door.

"Put me down Rock! I want to see my boyfriend!!!" I say pounding his back.

"Ouch! Fine." He says putting me down.

I turned around and Ross is standing in the doorway.

When he sees me, he smiles from ear to ear.

"ROSS!!!" I say running towards him.

He opens his arms and catches me.

"NATALIA!!!" He says in a raspy voice.

"You can talk!!!" I say looking him in the eyes.

"Yeah! Sort of... It still hurts." He says in his raspy voice.

"I bet... You don't have to talk." I say.

He smiles at me and says, "Well, I'm going to because I need to catch up with my girlfriend."

I'm surprised by a kiss. We just stand there kissing while everyone watches us.

"Awwwwwweeeeee!!!" Rydel says.

We pull apart and we sit there on the couch. Everyone goes about their business.

"What did you do while I was in the hospital?" Ross asks in is his raspy voice.

"Ummm... Well, Rocky started teaching me guitar, Rydell and I went shopping and Ryland taught me to ride a skateboard." I say.

Ross smiles and says, "I want to hear you play."

"Play what?" I say dumbly.

He laughs and says, "The guitars silly. I love your blonde moments."

I blush and say, "There's more of that where that came from, but I'm glad you like it."

We laugh and Ross says, "Owww. It hurts to laugh."

"Well don't." I say laughing.

"Kinda hard." He says laughing again.

We get up and walk upstairs hand-in-hand. Ross walks me into his bed and close the door. He takes his guitar out of the closet and hands it to me.

My breath gets caught up in my throat as he places it on my lap.

"What's the matter?" He asks.

I look up at him and say, "I can't use this. This is your guitar!"

He pushes it into my hands and says, "Babe, it doesn't matter. You can play it."

I put my hands on his guitar and I feel a jump of excitement. This guitar, I've seen him play it when he was Los Angeles. I plug the cords and it's almost like a magic. My head starts telling me you put my fingers here and here and there. I Strommen play parts of the random song my brain was telling me to play.I finished and Ross looks at me with his eyes wide open.

"Wow Natalia!!! That was unreal! You said Rocky just started teaching you!?!" Ross says with a surprised look.

"I honestly have no idea where that came from!" I say, surprised myself.

"That was amazing!!!" He says putting his guitar back in the closet.

"Why thank you!" I say in a weird British accent.

He laughs and plops onto the bed beside me.

I put my head on his chest and he smiles. We sit there talking for a while.every time he mentions the hospital love the picture of Alexis comes popping in my head.

"Ross, I need to tell you something?" I say.

"Sure babe." He say.

"I saw Alexis at the hospital the day you got your surgery and she was acting suspicious." I say.

"Really? Why would she be there?" He says thinking out loud.

"I don't know." I say. "I'm going to ask Riker first."

"Okay, babe. I'm going to stay here." Ross says Laying back on his bed.

I walk out of the room and into Rocky's and Riker's room.

Riker is the only one in the room.

"Hey Riker." I say at the door.

He sets down his down his phone and says, "Natalia, come in."

I walk in and sit on the edge of Rocky's bed.

"What's up?" He asks.

"Well three days ago when I was in the hospital with Ross, I ran into someone. Someone that means a lot to you." I say swallowing.

"What! Who?" He asked completely lost.

"Riker, I saw Alexis at the hospital! She wouldn't talk to me and was acting like she hiding something." I say.

His eye squint at me and says, "Are you sure?"

I nod, "We actually had conversation but she ran away before I could ask her."

He looks at me and says, "I'll call her are ask. Thanks Natalia." He gets up and hugs me.

"No problem Riker. You are my foster brother, so I care about you." I say sweetly.

He smiles and let's go of me.

I walk out of the room as he dials Alexis's number.

I walked back into Ross's room and he says, "There's my babe." He says holding his arms out for a hug.

I smile and climb into his strong but gentle arms.

"I love you Natalia." He whispers into my ear.

I smile up at him and say, "I love you too, Ross."

We kiss for a long time. Ross's tongue is against my lips. I open my lips and our tongues fight for dominance. I smile into the kiss which makes Ross smile.

We pull apart when we both hear someone coming down the hall. We just lay there beside each other.

Ryland walks into the room and says, "Hi Ross, Hey Natalia."

"Hey Ryland." We say at the same time.

We start laughing and Ryland looks at us.

"Yep, you two are perfect for each other... Your both crazy." he say walking out of the room.

Ross and I smile. I missed him while he was in the hospital. I missed the way he smiled at me, the way he called me 'babe', and the way he puts his arms around me.

I close my eyes and snuggle into his side. I'm exhaustedly tired, so I fell asleep in Ross's arms.
