I woke up curled up in Tucker's arms again. I rubbing my eyes and looked around the room that was filled with the early morning light. I smiled at him as I moved his arms off me. I kissed his sleeping face making him mumble something before turning over and pulled the pillow to him as he fell back asleep. I pulled the blankets back before slipped out of bed and pulled on Tucker's shirt. I walked out of my room closing the door as I left. I looked up as Nic came out of Ben's room in the outfit I chose for her last night from down the hall. "So?" I asked making her look up. She blushed bright red at me. "Yes!" I laughed at her quietly as I knew no one was up.
"Shut up Carson." She said looking me up and down. "And what about you eh?" She said crossing her arms as we walked into her room. I closed the door behind us.
"Eh, you know I don't kiss and tell." I winked at her making her shudder.
"Gross that's my brother you're talking about." I laughed at her.
"Don't I know that." I smiled sitting on the chair across from her bed. She sat on her bed and looked at me. "Alright what's wrong?" I asked her after she sighed.
"Nothing. What makes you think something is wrong?" I gave her a thoughtful look.
"I've known you for 3 and a half years now. You are one of my best friends. I know when something's wrong with you. Tell me." She sighed looking down at her hands.
"I'm just scared."
"Of what sweetheart?"
"I feel like I might have screwed up."
"How?" I looked at her cocking my head. "How would you have screwed up Nic? You didn't do anything wrong though." She shrugged.
"What if used me for…for sex?" I shook my head.
"I don't think he would do that. I don't see him doing that." She gave me a sad look. "Did you enjoy it?" She looked at me a little smile on her face.
"Oh I enjoyed it alright. He was gentle and he cared about how I felt and…." She fell back on the bed. "Oh it was just so perfect. Just how any girl would like it." I smiled at her.
"Then why are you scared Nic?" She sat up so she was leaning on her elbows.
"I guess…." She sighed. "I need to talk to him about it don't I?" I smiled at her. "What would I do without you Carson?"
"Hell who knows?" I winked causing her to laugh. "Well? Are you going to?"
"Yeah I'll talk to him…later." I gave her a disapproving look. "I'm not going to wake him up for it."
"Alright Nic. But you have to talk to him about it." She nodded looking down. "I don't want you to have a big purple elephant in the room. I'm looking out for you Nic."
"I know." She smiled at me. "That's why I love you." I nodded before pulling a face. "What?"
"Were you….were you safe with him?" I asked her blushing.
"Well…." I looked at her. "We didn't use a condom but…." I sighed. "Come on it's not like I have them laying around here."
"Please tell me you're on birth control." I said looking at her. She bit her lip. "Nicole Brown!"
"I'm sorry!" She said shrinking into the bed.
"Nic….I thought you were on it?" She shook her head.
"Are you?" I nodded.
"I have been for about a year and a half now." She gave me a guilty look.
"I'm sorry. What have I done?" I got up and sat next to her on the bed.
"It's not your fault Nic." She looked at me. "Come on." I said getting up.
"Come on where?" She asked rubbing her face sighing.
"To a pharmacy." She looked at me confused as she raised an eye brow. "We have to go get you a morning after pills don't we?" She nodded at me standing up to walk to her dresser. "Let me go get dressed and I'll meet you downstairs." She nodded one last time as I walked out of her room and walked into mine.
"I thought I was going to wake up with you here." Tucker yawned rolling onto his back to look at me. I smiled at him.
"You looked so peaceful so I didn't want to wake you up." He smiled at me putting his hands behind his head.
"You do look lovely wearing just my shirt." I smiled at him walking over to my bed putting my hands on his bare chest.
"I thought you would like it." I laughed at him as he bit his lip.
"Well are you going to come back to bed m'lady?" He moved his hands to tug at the bottom of the shirt I was wearing. I shook my head moving away from him walking over to my dresser. I pulled out an old blue plaid shirt and a pair of my favorite old blue jeans. "Where are you going?" He asked leaning up on his elbows to look at me as I pulled out a pair of bra and panties from another draw.
"I'm going out with your sister." I said pulling off the t-shirt and pulling on my bra and clipping it and slipping on my underwear.
"Oh really where?" He asked sitting up rubbing a hand through his hair watching me.
"Just places." I smiled at him as I pulled on my jeans. He pouted at me. "What?" I asked him as I putted on my shirt and started to button it.
"Why won't you tell me Carson?" I walked over to him and straddled his lap wrapping my arms around his neck.
"Because I know you wouldn't want to know." I leaned down to kiss him. As I pulled back I felt Tucker's hands rubbing the small of my back. He kissed me again making me run my hands through his hair. "No Mister. I have to go." I whispered as I pulled back and got off his lap.
"Come on Carson." He sighed falling back on the bed. I could see the bulge under the blanket making me bite my lip.
"I'm sorry Baby. But I have to go. I'll be back later." I leaned over to kiss him before going to grab one of my sweatshirts from my closest. "I'll make it up to you. I promise." Tucker nodded at me.
"I'm going to hold you to that Carson." I nodded back as I grabbed the keys to the Jeep.
"I love you." I looked at Tucker as he gave me a small smile.
"I love you too Tucker." I pushed my phone into my pocket. "Go back to sleep. I'll be back when you wake up." He nodded falling back on the bed. I ran down the stairs to see Nic texting on her blackberry. "Ready?" She looked up.
"Yeah let's go." I slipped on my sweatshirt and grabbed my sunglasses off the counter. I closed the door behind me. It was silent the entire car ride to the pharmacy. "Come on." I said locking the car. She nodded holding her bag close to her as we walked through the front door.
"So what do we do? Just ask?" She asked me looking around uncomfortable. I nodded at her running a hand through my hair.
"Come on we just have to ask the Pharmacist about it." We walked up to the Pharmacist who smiled at the two of us.
"How may I help you two young ladies?" She asked. I looked at Nic as she stood silently looking down.
"My friend here needs a morning after pill." She looked at Nic.
"Are you over 17?" Nic looked up at her.
"I am 17 Ma'am." She nodded walking over to a shelve and pulled two boxes off of it.
"May I see your ID please?" She smiled kindly at Nic who fumbled with her wallet to pull out her driver's license. "Okay that will be 51.60 please." Nic handed the Pharmacist her debt card. She wrote something down on a blue sheet. "Please sign here." Nic signed the sheet and took the bag shoving it into her bag.
"Thank you Ma'am." She smiled at her weakly.
"You know the condoms are just over there." She said quietly to us so no one else could hear. "I know what you're going through. And hell it much cheaper to buy condoms then it is to buy this damn pill." I blushed bright red.
"We'll check it out." I smiled at her. "Thank you." She smiled gently at us.
"Have a good day girls." She said as she went to go help the next person.
"You too." I smiled pulling Nic to the aisle she was talking about.
"You're still red." She smiled as we stood in front of all the different condoms. I bit my lip at all the different ones. "Well….." She said looking at me. "Any ideas?"
"None what so ever…." I sighed. I knew I had to buy some to for Tucker and I. Better safe than sorry.
"Well I'm going to take this one because it sounds promising." She smiled pulling one that said 'extended' on it. "Oh and this one." She giggled pulling out a pleasure pack. "And lastly this one." She pulled a small pack and held them. "Your turn." I looked at all the different ones.
"I don't know what to choose." I whispered blushing harder biting my lip. Nic sighed looking at all them again.
"How about this one?" She said handing me one that said 'Sensitivity Pack' on it. "So you say my brothers…big? Right?" I nodded blushing harder again. "Well here take these two. That should work." She handed me a Magnum Ecstasy 2 pack and a Magnum Fire & Ice pack. I blushed bright red bighting my lip.
"Can we get out of this store yet?" I said looking at her.
"Yeah let me just get a water bottle." She grabbed a one as we made our way to the counter to pay. The counter boy kept staring at me as the cashier rang me up. I blushed closing my eyes behind my glasses as he finished and I paid. I quickly left and got into the car. Nic followed laughing at me the whole time. "God Car, you are so damn innocent." She laughed un-screwing the cap and taking the morning after pill.
"Shut up," was all I said as I pulled out of the spot I was parked in and driving out of the parking lot as I drove us back to the house, my face still as red as a tomato.
"I wonder what Tucker's going to say when he sees you all red like that." She said looking at me as the wind wiped her hair around her head.
"Don't we all." I rolled my eyes at her with a little smile on my lips as I pulled into the driveway.
