This is the next chapter! Yey! What do you call the stuff on the trees? Cuz I just call it "fluff". XD. Not much has happened since I posted the last chapter, so without further adeiu, chapter 2! (lol)
-Allison POV-
I step out of the bathroom in huge sweats that barely fit me. Boy, was this guy tall or what? My hair was still damp from my shower. The Once-ler was curled up on one side of the bed. I got in on the other side, scooting to the edge, trying not to touch him. Sleep pulls me under almost immediately.
When I wake up, Once-ler is still asleep. I begin to get out of bed, but he grabs me and suddenly pulls me to him. I try to move but I'm kind of stuck. I give a yelp when he holds me tighter and his eyes fly open. He instantly lets me go and jumps up.
"I-I'm so sorry," Once-ler says. He looks down. I blush a little and get up. I look at him.
"Really?" I say. Once-ler looks up, confused. "Bunny pajamas?"
"Hey," He says. "I can wear whatever I want. Besides, maybe I like bunnies..." We both laugh. Then someone knocks on the door. We go down. Once-ler looks through the peephole.
"Uh oh," He says and looks at me. "Hide."
I run upstairs and slip under the bed. I can hear the door open and Once-ler say, "Good morning."
Then another man with a very deep voice says, "I'm looking for a girl. About thins tall with blonde hair and green eyes. You seen any lately?" Then I know who it is. Ace. The man that tried to kill me. Suddenly I wonder if Once-ler will rad me out. I pray he won't. Why would he?
"I am awarding $10,000 dollars to whoever knows anything about her whereabouts," Says Ace. That's it. I'm dead.
I wait for Once-ler to say where I am. But rather I hear, "Nope, sorry. But I will let you know if I do see anyone like that." And the door  closes and I hear a car drive off. Once-ler comes upstairs and looks under the bed at me. I'm curled in a ball, sobbing. He pulls me out and sets me on the bed.
He hugs me. "Hey," He says. "It's okay. Let's go get something to eat." Once-ler takes my hand and leads me downstairs.
"Why are you so nice to me?" I ask, tears still streaming down my face. "I'm just a slave that works for the Xarol."
Once-ler looked baffled. "The what now?" He says.
"The Xarol," I say. "You know, the Lorax's evil twin brother."
He stares at me. "The Lorax has an evil twin brother?" I nod.
"Long story," I say. "But you still didn't answer my question. Why are you so nice to me?"
"Because you-" One-ler starts, but he just shakes his head and goes to make breakfast.

-Once-ler POV-

Allison sat behind me on my motorbike, arms holding tightly on to me. We drove down to a lake. A huge lake. We got off and walked to a dock, where my boat was tied up. I hopped in and offered my hand to Allison.
"I don't know," She said. "I kind of have a fear of water..." I roll my eyes and pull her in. I laugh and go to the wheel. I put the keys in and start it up. I look back at Allison, who is holding tightly to the seat. I take off my black fedora and hand it to her.
"Will you please hold this?" I ask. She nods and takes it. "Wouldn't want to lose it." I take us to an island. It was fairly small, but very pretty. I help her out and put my hat back on.
The island was mostly grassy, surrounded by a big beach. There were lots of trees and even a small waterfall. It was a clear day except for a few small fluffy white clouds.
"Wow," Says Allison. "It's beautiful."
"I thought you might like it," I say. We climb to the top of the small waterfall. "Dare me to jump?" I say smiling.
"I don't think you have the guts," Allison says laughing. I take off my hat again.
"Hold this," I say and give it to her. I take off my shoes and socks. I left the rest of my clothes on. I didn't care if the got wet.
"You're not really gonna-" Is all I could hear from her before I jumped. I splahed into the water. It was warm today. When I came to the surface I could hear the Humming fish singing I heard a splash next to me and Allison's head pop up out of the water.
"Thought you didn't like water," I said.
"Not anymore," She laughs. I laugh. Isn't this what we just did yesterday? I guess, but it was a little more... violent?
Allison put my soaking wet hat on my head.
"Sorry," She said. "Forgot I was holding it."
"No worries," I say. "It will dry out." We get our shoes and sit at a Truffula tree. To my surprise, Allison climbs up one. I've never seen anyone do that before. I can't climb, so I don't bother. A few moments later, she comes back down with a huge armfull of the fluffy stuff on the tree.
"You're the Once-ler, right?" The blonde girl asks. I nod. "Will you make me a Thneed?" She asks again. I stare at the pink fluff she had handed to me.
"I don't know," I say, "Last time I did that, I hurt a lot of people, and things, including myself."
"Oh, come on," She said. "It's just one. How much harm can that be?"
"Well..." I say. "I guess one couldn't hurt..."
"Yay!" Allison said happily.
"But you can't wear it in public," I say. She nods. We walk back to the boat, still soaking wet, and go back to my house.
When we arrive at my place on my motorbike, it is getting dark. I check my watch. 10:00pm already? We had had lunch and dinner at the island. When I look back at Allison, she is asleep. I didn't want to wake her, so I carried her in, along with the pink fluff. I set her on the bed, now clutching the fluff. I lay down and fall asleep.
When I wake up, Allison is no longer in the bed. I get up and go downstairs, assuming I was going to find her on the couch. But she wasn't. She was in the last place I expected her to be, sitting at my desk, drawing.
Allison looked up and jumped up. "Sorry," She said. "I just really love drawing and I saw you had some paper and pencils so I yeah..." I walk over. She had drawn... me. Holding an ax. Standing next to a truffula tree. Perfectly. It was so detailed and amazing...
"Wow," I say. "You are an amazing artist." I look up to see her blushing, and she quickly turns her head away.
"You really think so?" Allison says.
"This-" I hold up the paper "-is amazing! Where did you learn to draw like that?" I hand her the paper.
"I don't know," She says. "I guess it just ran in my family."
"Hey uh speaking of that, won't your family be worried about you?" I ask.
"My family was killed..." Alison's eyes started tearing up.
"Oh," I say. "Sorry." I desperately try to think of something to change the subject. "Hey," I say, "Come on. Lets get some food." We ate, took showers, and got dressed. Now we sit on the couch, me knitting a Thneed, and her drawing.
"Is that how you made Thneeds?" Allison says, laughing. "Knitting?"
"Hey!" I say. "There is nothing un-manly about knitting."
She stops drawing and looks at me. "I have a question." I raise an eyebrow. "Why did you save me yesterday, when that man came? Why didn'y you just get your money? It's not like I'm anything special to you."
I look at the wall. Changing the subject again, I say, "Do you know that guy's name by any chance?"
"Ace," Says Allison. Someone rings the doorbell. I open the door and see... Ace? Then, I don't see anything.
OMG CHAPTER 2!! :D I'm going to keep going regardless of what anyone says, okay? XD I love comments, and comments mean love! So do faves lol

Two comments
1) It'd be so awesome if someone drew the picture Allison had drawn (Don't look at me, I'm a horrible artist)

2) "I open the door and see... Ace? Then, I don't see anything."
Me: "Wait, what. Did he close his eyes or something...?" *reads it again then thinks bout it* "Ohhh!" *facepalm*
