Nick and Zac: Your Typical "Big Brother's Best Friend And Little Sister" Story

Novel By: Cherie Arlavine
Young adult

Three years ago she was a fourteen-year-old tomboy. And he was an eighteen-year-old senior who looked at her like a little sister. And she always thought of him as a buddy or big brother.
But then he had to go to college, in Europe. And three slow years passed by, and now he's back. Nicholas comes back expecting to see his best friend and the little tomboy he left.
Zac was looking forward to seeing her old buddy. The one she used to wrestle and play football with. But Nicholas returns, and things are just not the same.
Nicholas is twenty-one, and he's built, tan, and cultured.
Zac is seventeen and she's curvy and sexy. Not flat chested and sporty.
And neither of them seem to like the changes.
Zac and Nicholas end up fighting rather then sharing old memories. Just because neither of them are so good at accepting change.
Josh, Zac's older brother, is trying to figure what the hell is wrong. He and Nick went right back to old times.
But Reece, Josh's other friend, has a theory about why Zac and Nick are either really polite or fighting.
And Josh doesn't like his theory at all.

I woke the next morning, and was surprised to see Josh, Nicholas and Reece standing at the end off the bed. I sat up and rubbed my eyes. "Hey, what's up?" I asked then yawned.

"You're grounded." Josh said. "Because you're still in trouble."

"And we're not going to happen. Obviously it's too much for you and you can't handle it." Nicholas explained.

"And I'm going back to my place and Nick is coming with me. I'll see you when you're not grounded anymore." Reece murmured.

"And by that time I'll have gone back to Europe to get my things. And when I get back here, I think you and I should just be friends." Nicholas whispered as he looked at me.

It was like I was having a nightmare. But I had just woken up, so it wasn't a dream. I felt a tear rolled down my cheek, but none of them showed sympathy. "Oh. Okay." I said quietly. "I understand. I'll just, go up to my room then."

I slowly pulled the covers aside, and as I walked to the door, Nicholas and Reece stepped aside, and didn't look at me. I left Josh's room, and went upstairs to my own. I gently closed the door, and saw on my bed that Josh had given me my electronics back.

What hurt the most wasn't that I was grounded, or that I wouldn't see Reece for a few months, but what hurt was that Nicholas was leaving and that we were over before anything had really started.

I buried my face in my hands, but didn't cry. I just stood there, not really knowing what to think, and I felt my heart throb inside my chest. And for once, I didn't feel angry, betrayed, annoyed, confused. For the first time I just didn't feel anything.
