Lamont asked Albear.

"It's been awhile."

The boys looked at

"You know," Corey

"The party phone?"
"Yeah," Lamont said,

"The trick phone."
Albear said. "And try to keep up."
"That's crazy!" Lisa
said. "Do you all do this?"
"No." Tyler and Corey
said in unison.
Lamont said nothing,

Alby said. "I'll try the last number."
"How many numbers does
she have?" Corey asked.
"This is the last
one," Albear said, "the emergency phone, when you absolutely need
to get a hold of her. She almost always leaves this one
"I only have two of
her numbers," Lamont said.
"I only have one!"
"I don't have any."
Tyler said, frowning at all of them. "Why do you have all three?"
He asked Albear. "Do you two have all three?" He asked Mel and
Lisa. They nodded their heads. Tyler stared at them dark eyes
wide. "What?" Lisa said. "We're more trustworthy. We do our
shopping together, she babysits Abraham, she caters for the
Community Center, all numbers are necessary.
Tyler shook his head
and drunk his beer.
"Hello?" Lourdes said
on the other end of the line. Albear stuck his tongue out at
Tyler. He picked up his drink and walked away from the group at

"Oh yeah, hey Alby-"
Lourdes tried to say, as Pullo pulled her into his bedroom,
kissing her free hand.
"Don't hey me, where
the fuck are you?" He said.
Pullo swung Lourdes
around the room, trying to keep her attention. She tried to pull
her hand away, unsuccessfully. He grinned like a fool, twirling
"I'm sorry, I'm here."
Lourdes said. "Stop!" Lourdes whispered to Pullo as he tried to
pull her down on the bed. She managed to keep her footing. He
leaned back slightly and started unbuttoning his shirt, revealing
his muscular chest and stomach.

"I mean, I'm still
here on the line." Lourdes said sticking her tongue out at

way." Pullo said, taking off the shirt and standing back up,

Lourdes tried to answer, taking a quick step back and turning
away from him, but Pullo was trying very hard to distract her,

Pullo grabbed her from
behind, wrapping his arms around her waist and started pushing
her across the room.
"And we started
drinking." She continued as he pushed her forward. He pushed her
against the wall, hugging her from behind. Lourdes tried not to
giggle. "And then one thing led to another-"
Pullo released his
arms from around her waist, brushing all her loose curls to one
side and kissed the side of her neck. He slipped the red
spaghetti straps on her dress off of her
"And I never made it
out of here." Lourdes finished. Her dress hit the ground. Pullo
turned her around to face him. He unbuttoned his pants. Then
kissed her while Lourdes still had the cell up to her
"Get off the fucking
phone." Pullo said unzipping his pants. Lourdes ignored his
request but slipped her free hand in his boxers and started
stroking his perfect, rock hard,
"So what does that
mean?" Albear asked. "Do we need to come and get

behind her and started to unclasp the hooks on her
"Alby-, I'm so wasted,
I don't think I can come." She said into the phone, she could
barely focus now.
"Don't worry about
that." Pullo said, successfully unhooking her bra and talking in
her ear. "You're definitely going to cum."
"Shh!" Lourdes tried
to say, while giggling, she took her hand out of his

asked. "Lourdes, Lourdes, Lourdes, is that a

hoots and hollers in the background. It had to be the
"Get off the phone."
Pullo said again. He tossed her bra to the floor, and grabbed her
breast and started sucking on her rock hard nipples. Lourdes
gasped, and almost dropped her phone. She tightened her grip and
put the cell up to her ear. "Alby, I gotta

"I won't hear from you for another two
"I..." she said trying
to focus as Pullo switched breast and started sucking harder,
"I...h-have to call you back..."
"That's what you said
"Oh my..." Lourdes
said as Pullo licked in between her breast, all the way up her
chest, to the top of her throat. Pullo grabbed a condom off the
night stand and ripped it open with his
"You seem to be having
trouble finishing your sentences. Is what you're doing more
important than us right now?" Albear asked.
Lourdes breathed, gripping Pullo's shoulder hard with her free
hand, while he grabbed the back of her thigh, bending her knee
and lifting her leg up to his waist .
"Then I want to hear
about every single detail later." Alby said laughing into the
"You got it." She said
quickly, breathing fast. Pullo was looking her in the eyes while
his fingers worked quickly, moving her panties to the side, so he
could gain access and slip himself inside of
"I hope your not
feeling shy tonight." Pullo kissed her.
Lourdes whispered, closing her
"Because I feel like
being very bad." He kissed her again.
"You still there...?"
"Oh my fucking god!"
Lourdes moaned, taking the phone away from her ear and letting it
fall to the waist-side. Pullo took the phone out of her hand as
he pushed himself deeper inside of her. He put the phone up to
his ear. "She'll have to call you back." He hung up the

back into a tight classic chignon and the morning sun felt good
on her bare neck and skin as she waited. She took off her white
jacket, it was actually warm enough for only the blue tunic and
jeans she was wearing. She pulled her black phone out of her
pocket as it vibrated. No number came up on the
screen. Private Caller,
it said. Normally she ignored unsolicited
exactly who it was. She had been receiving one call a day, every
day, for the past week from the same
caller. It was
becoming redundant, and obnoxious and annoying and
She hadn't answered
any of the calls before, but it was starting to wear her down.
Demon's were tempting her all over the place. She was starting to
become curious again...

arrogant, but it was so him.
Lourdes sighed, there
was no point in lying. "I use to ache for you, but I'm not

swung open and Lita came bouncing out. "Okay, ready." She said.
They were just hanging out, it was supposed to be an uneventful
Saturday morning. That was until....
Lourdes pushed herself
off the wall.
"So that was intense.
The other day." Lita said walking down the street with Lourdes.
"How far do we have to go?"
"Yeah it was fun."
Lourdes said. "Oh, no wait, that's not what you
Lita laughed, "That's
okay, it was fun too."
"Yeah, we only have
about a block more to go." Lourdes said looking down at her cell
phone as it vibrated again. This time she had a text

I think about you
everyday....and I miss you more and more.
Lourdes put the phone
away. He was killing her. And it wasn't even all his fault. She
was just as much to blame.
"This looks like a fun

moving quickly by. They were in the city, close to Pride

Lita looked confused.

"Right, I get it."

smiling. The elevator arrived and they stepped on. They were
silent the whole way up. Once they got off, Lourdes reached for
Albear's door, but Lita grabbed her hand and stopped her. Lourdes
turned to look at her. "For the record," Lita said, "I had a
blast up until the moment you left with Pullo." Lourdes knew that
was coming. She turned to try and explain herself. "Okay I
know that was done in
poor taste, but what did you think was going to happen? With a
guy like Pullo? I mean we were
fucked up and I'm sure after what you and I
did in front of him, he wasn't going to run to his bedroom and
take a cold shower."
"Yes, so you decided
you had to go and fuck his brains out, while I listened in the
next room?" Lita asked, shaking her head at

"The truth hurts." She slid the door open. "But I guess he'd take
it as a compliment."
"Well don't. Because
it's not a compliment. I'm just letting you know, what you two
did, it was excruciating." Lita pushed up against her,
"Noted." Lourdes said,
sliding the door closed behind them. They weren't two feet
inside, when they were greeted by Albear and the latest

Lourdes covered her
face and started laughing. Alby was doing some guy on the sofa.
Stark naked, grunting and moaning. The bottom hadn't even noticed
them standing there as Albear continued to fuck. Alby turned and
looked at Lourdes and gave her a big grin.
"Oh my gosh, Lourdes!"

shaking her head.

boys still going at it on the couch, totally embarrassed. "Um, we
came at a bad time."
"Ugh!" Albear grunted,
shooting his load. "You two," he said breathing hard, "have
something in common."
"Hey!" The trick said
as Albear pulled out of him.
"Alby-" Lourdes said
grabbing Lita's hand, "We'll be back in

said grabbing a towel and wiping himself down. "He was just

to Lourdes, cheekbones sucked in, shaking her head. "I take back
everything I just said to you."
"Noted." Lourdes said
smiling, as she pulled her out of the door.
"So it's like that
huh?" Lita asked when they were back downstairs. Lourdes' phone
vibrated. She had a new message. "Like what?" Lourdes
