Meanwhile, Within the room three doors down from Khun, Mr & Mrs White were unpacking things from their cases.
"Anise, Where's our kitchen stuff? I can't find it!" Shouted Mr White from the small kitchen area in the main room.
"Should be in that small case with 'Kitchen' written on it, Alan!" Came the reply from a room on the left.
At that point, a door on the right side of the room opened and entered a black and white cat, with a distinguished brown patch over one eye.
What's with the shouting? I was taking a nap..?" He said, yawning and streching as he walked towards the sofa in the middle of the room and sat.
"Sorry, Rookie, but I couldn't find the kitchen bag.." Mr White apologised, looking franticly around.
Rook looked at the bag he sat next to, noting the label reading 'Kitchen' on it.
"Y'mean this one?" He asked sarcasticly, getting up again and carrying it to his dad.
"Heh, thanks Rookie.." He said, ruffling the cat's headfur as he took the case off of him. "Glad your up, in fact, I would've sent in a search party for you in there.."
"Heh, glad you didn't.. They'd of messed up my room.." Rook answered, turning and heading back to the sofa.
Just as he reached it, Mrs White came into the room.
"Hey Rook, up finally? Unpacked all your stuff?" She asked, carrying an empty suitcase to a storage cuboard close to the entry door.
"I finished unpacking yesterday, mum.." he sighed, coming over to her as she put the suitcase into the cuboard and closing the door after her.
"Allright, I know the last four days has been just unpacking.. How about you and Maxine go out? Explore the Island? Me and Alan will finish up.."
Mrs White asked, headding back to the room on the right.
"Ok! I'll go tell her!" Rook said excitedly, positively buzzing and rushed into Maxine's room, which was next to his.
"ROOK! What have I said about entering my room without knocking!?" Maxine screamed. She was sitting in her basket, her long cream tail curling around her the blanket she was hiding behind as Rook entered the room. Rook had glimpsed that Maxine hadn't her collar on and his face went red, as did Maxine's.
"Ah, Er, Sorry Maxie.. But mum's allowed u-us out.." Rook said, blushing brightly and looking at the ground.
"Good, fantastic, now OUT! let me get my collar on.." Maxine ordered, reaching for her collar on a bedside table close to her basket.
Rook left the room, closing the door behind him, a dumbfounded expression across his face. I just saw.. Maxine.. Naked.. He thought, the blush growing redder.
"Everything alright, Rookie?" Asked Mr White, his back towards him.
"Ah.. Fine, dad, apsoloutley fine.." Rook answered, shaking off his thoughts of Maxine.
"Where's Maxine?" He asked, plugging a small kettle into the wall.
"Coming out soon.." Rook answered again, leaning back onto the door. Just then, the door opened and Rook fell backwards.
"Ah! Urgh, Rook.." Said Maxine, surprised by Rook lying on the floor in front of her.
"Heh, ow, sorry Maxie.." Rook apologised, getting up and blushing again.
Rook brushed himself off as he he stood, Maxine pushed past him and headed for the door.
"Eh, w-wait for me, Maxie!" Said Rook as he followed her out the door.
"Ah.. Young love.." Whispered Mr White to himself as the door closed.
Maxine was walking down the hallway as Rook closed the door.
"Maxie, wait up.." Rook asked as his paw left the door handle.
As Maxine walked along, she noticed a room door left open. She looks in inquisitively as she walks by, she sees a German Shepard standing in the doorway in front of a miraculous mess, and another GS within the room, holding what looks like a walking stick. So that's what that ruckus was a couple days ago.. She thought, and carried on walking.
Rook walked by the door also, but didn't look in. He finally caught up to Maxine.
"So, Uh.. Where you want to go?" He asked, straightening out his collar as he walked.
"I dunno, how about we find a map first and see from there?" Maxine answered sternly, still a little sour from the bedroom incident.
"Uh, yeah, good idea.." Agreed Rook, as they started down the stairwell..
