“I can’t believe you did that John!” I screamed at my boyfriend as I saw him come after me.
“Babe it was an accident, I was drunk I mean she was the one that came up to me!”
“You are so full of shit, you act like this has never happened but it has and frankly I’m tired of it all!”
“Well it’s not like you’re giving me what I want!”
I couldn’t believe that he just openly admitted to cheating on because I wouldn’t be his fuck toy, but if that’s all I am than he could keep his little toys because I know that I am worth more than just a fuck. I was burning deep inside but strangely I was able to reply back in a calm voice, “You know what John I wouldn’t sleep with you even if I was given one million dollars for it, first of I’m worth more and second of I don’t think you have what it takes to ever please me.”
“You are worth it Lillian why do you think I’m still with you?”
“Oh hell no you aren’t still with me I’ve been the one who is still with you but that’s changing as of right now, I want nothing to do with you ever again!”
“Babe, come on.” John said behind me as I began walking off. I was so mad that I didn’t hear him right away but I did feel his grip on my arm, which only infuriated me even more. I really wasn’t thinking, maybe it was all the anger but without much thought I punched him and he immediately let go of me.
“Don’t ever touch me again.” I said with clenched teeth.
“Fine then but don’t come crying to me when you feel all alone!” John said as he laughed and went back to the party.
I continued to walk not caring where I was going even if it was past midnight. I couldn’t believe he thought I really liked him, I mean he acts like he is the best thing in the world. I never really understood why I even dated him maybe it was because of my mother’s pressure to get a boyfriend when in truth I’ve never really been attracted to anyone. I just kept on thinking on how stupid I was to date someone like John and next thing I knew tears were falling just as the rain began to fall, honestly I didn’t think this night could get worse.
I was really getting tired of my mother and her alcohol; each and everyday it’s the same thing with her, I come from school only to find her sprawled on the floor with alcohol bottles all around. I threw my backpack on the couch as I walked towards her. I picked up my mother and carried her to her room so that I could lay her on her bed. I tried to lay her gently but sadly she awoke for a little bit calling out my name, “Alex?”
“Yes mom, go back to sleep.”
“Okay sweetheart.” She whispered to me as she snuggled closer to her pillow.
I stood there looking at my mother and remembered when she was a happy and beautiful woman, I mean she was still a beautiful woman but you really couldn’t see it. Now all you could see were bags around her eyes, a hot mess of hair, and a frail body. If I were someone else I would be worried financially not just emotionally but luckily my father’s family comes from money so we were covered for the rest of our lives. I really missed my father he was the best thing in our lives until a drunken driver took him from us. I remember the day we found out about his death, my mother was crushed and I was too but I didn’t show it. The day of the funeral I don’t think I really cried except for a single tear when I promised my father I would be strong for my mother. That day I left my childhood behind in his grave; it was time for me to grow up and that’s exactly what I did.
I left a trashcan close to my mother as well as aspirin and water. I went downstairs got the trashcan and began throwing her bottles away and cleaned up the house. Once I was finished I was starving but of course there wouldn’t be food in the refrigerator. I was frustrated not because of the food but more because of her irresponsibility. I got my keys and headed to my car and at first I just sat there my head resting on the stirring wheel but once I felt my tears I cranked the car up and headed to the store. I shopped pretty slowly that by the time I got out it was already close to midnight. I went home fixed myself a sandwich and watched a little TV. Once I knew I had waited long enough I got my iPod and headed outside to take a run.
I really didn’t realize I had run for like an hour straight until my iPod died, I had forgotten to charge it this morning. I thought I had enough and I did because at that moment it began to rain. I really didn’t want to run all the way home so I took a short cut through a park and some alleys but that’s when I heard some one screaming.
I was so lost in my thoughts that at first I didn’t notice the shadows that were close to mine or the shuffling feet but when I did I felt fear within and I began to walk faster. It wasn’t until I heard their voices that I began to run but it was already to late I was tackled to the ground.
“Leaving so soon sweetheart?” I heard one ask as the other one laughed.
“Please I don’t have money leave me alone I don’t have anything.” I said trying to scream.
“Oh but honey you do have something for us it’s sweet and warm.” The one standing said as he laughed along with his friend.
I felt fear consume me as they both pulled me up and began to tear my clothes off, the shorter one had his junk out and the taller one was taking his out as the shorter one held me down. I think I was going to vomit but I didn’t instead I almost kicked one where it would have counted but he moved back and that little trick of mine caused me about three slaps. I was crying and shirtless and I felt like I was going to die but just as they began rubbing against me, I felt them fly off of me.
Repulsion, that’s what I felt when I got to the screaming. Two men surrounding a girl with their dicks out, that scene made my stomach turn and made me see red. I could feel my blood boiling as I walked quietly behind them making sure they wouldn’t hear me. Just as I got close I kicked one on the balls from behind and punched the other one as he turned around to face me. I must have really been mad because I didn’t fully realize what I had done until I looked up and saw the girl staring at me. I stood up and looked around the taller guy had a blood all over him including his junk and was passed out while the shorter one had his face pretty messed up and he was cupping himself. I took a deep breath and turned around and took a look at her face before realizing I knew this girl and by accident I whispered her name, “Lillian?”
I felt like I was saved but at the same time I felt even more afraid. I couldn’t see my savior’s face all I saw was how the guys were suddenly on the ground close to death. I must have been staring because at that moment my savior looked up and I realized it was a girl a tall muscular girl, I mean not like buff but you could see her muscles. She walked towards me and suddenly she whispered my name.
I was surprised and scared I mean how did she know my name and who was she? I was really confused and scared but when she came closer and the moonlight shined on her I realized she was the new girl who just came to town like a month ago. I wanted to respond to her but I was really frightened and I felt like I couldn’t move, much less talk.
I could see that Lillian was scared from my actions and still was a bit in shock so I was cautious.
“Would you like me to give you my shirt?” I asked as I began to take it off it was wet from the rain but I didn’t have a sweater except for that shirt and a tee shirt under.
“Please.” I heard her whisper softly so I gave her the shirt but she was in no condition to put it on her self so I cautiously walked close to her and gently pulled her up and put the shirt on. I didn’t think the guys were going anywhere so I called an ambulance and her parents and waited for them to come. I was unsure as to what to do with Lillian but when I began to set her back down she whimpered so I just held her like if I was holding a child, I looked at her and felt something weird in my heart but afraid of what it was I shut it down. By the time the ambulance was here my arms had fallen asleep just like she had. The paramedics took her from my arms and began taking care of her. Her parents were coming this way and the police as well. Just as her parents went her way the police came towards me and I was being arrested! I mean what the hell I’m helping the girl I get arrested, must have been the blood though. The mayor, who is Lillian’s father walked towards me and whispered in my ear, “I’ll make sure you’ll rot in jail for what you and your pals did.” I mean come on can’t they see I wasn’t part of this. Well, no good deed goes unpunished I thought right before I was sent to jail.
I woke up in a bed too small for my comfort and white surrounded me from everywhere and that’s when it hit me, what almost happened last night. I didn’t care if the sun was shining I felt like there was a tornado outside as well as inside of me.
“Patrick she’s awake.” I heard my mother say as she came close to me and cried my father was crying as well, which was surprising because he’s a really tough guy.
“Hey baby girl how are you feeling?” he asked me as he moved a strand from my hair.
“I’m fine dad, may I have some water?” I asked as I felt my throat and lips dry.
“How do you feel?” my mother asked as she wiped her tears.
“Honestly I’m fine.” I said knowing that was the best answer.
“Good the doctor said you could leave today I’ll go sign the paperwork as your mother helps you.”
I was relieved that I wasn’t going to stay but I couldn’t stop thinking in my savior Alexis Gregorovitch the new girl, mysterious, tall, beautiful, and lonely, but now she seems like the best thing ever to have come in my life and I wanted to know where she was.
Once my dad got here and I was done we began to walk out, but as I was passing through some windows I saw the two men and gasped out loud. They looked awful and my dad was next to me in no time patting my shoulder.
“You have a pretty good kick and fist sweetheart, but don’t worry once they are recovered they’re going to jail along with that female friend of theirs.” He said proudly.
“What!” I basically screamed.
“Um sweetheart, are you okay?” My mother walked towards us.
“No I’m not okay you arrested Alexis.”
“Yes we know, don’t worry she’s going to jail for life.”
“Dad, mom you don’t understand she was the one that did this, she saved me and beat them up!” I exclaimed and I could see the truth hitting them right in the face.
“Oh well in that case Patrick I believe we have some apologizing to do as well as an invitation.” My mother said.
“Of course.” My father said, at least he had the decency to look embarrassed.
“How about I take Lillian home and you make sure you let that girl go and invite her to dinner Friday.” My mother said as she ushered me away. I can’t believe they actually arrested her I just hope she was okay.
I was not happy, not happy at all. They took my stuff and put me in jail. I was able to call my mother but sadly she didn’t answer, no surprise there. Tomorrow was Monday and what would I do, nothing, just sit in jail like a criminal that I am not. I was pretty bored last night though; insults flying from everywhere and eventually it got boring. However on Sunday afternoon the mayor paid a visit to me. Honestly I thought he was going to do something worse or say something but surprisingly he didn’t, he wanted to talk.
“Miss Gregorovitch I wanted to apologize for accusing you of such an awful thing when in truth you were innocent and I’ll make sure that this town reads about the hero you are.”
“That won’t be necessary Mr. Carter.” I said as the police officer gave me back my belongings.
“Oh but I insist also I would really appreciate it, as well as my wife, if you came to our house on Friday for dinner.”
“Again Mr. Carter it won’t be necessary.” I said trying to just get away and get home.
“Oh but I insist again for Lillian please?”
“Very well then I’ll see you on Friday.” I said just trying to get rid of him.
“Good, would you like a ride?”
“No thanks, I’ll walk.” I said as I shook his hand and walked out. I was so glad to be free and worried about my mother but I really shouldn’t have.
As I got home everything was silent and I was starving so when I didn’t see my mother on the ground I assumed she was in her room sleeping. I was biting into my sandwich when I walked by the dining room and just about had a heart attack; my mother was sitting on the table with a glass of water.
“Where were you?”
“You’ve been missing since last night and you weren’t here this morning so where were you”
“I was in jail.” I said taking a seat.
“Accused of rape but later they found out I was actually innocent and set me free.” I said.
“Why didn’t you call?”
“I did mom.”
“No you didn’t, don’t you think I have a right to know?”
“I called but you were probably to drunk or hung over to realize that the phone was ringing!” I screamed without meaning too.Suddenly my mom began to cry and I felt like crap for making her cry.
“I’m sorry mom.”
“Don’t be, you know you are the most amazing creature God has set in this world. I’m moving to New York Alex.”
“I noticed that I’m a mess and I’m not here for you when I need to be and that needs to change I’m going to rehab I need help and I can’t do it here being so close to you and knowing you must be ashamed of me.”
“I’m not ashamed of you mom.”
“I know sweetheart and that’s what makes it harder knowing how great you are.”
“When will you go?”
“I’ll take you to the airport.”
“You don’t have to.”
“I know but I want to.”
“I’m going to go pack and then rest, you need to take a shower and rest as well.”
“Okay mom.” I said as I stood up and went to my room.
“Ok so your friend is no longer in jail and she will be joining us for dinner on Friday.” my father said as we were eating dinner.
“What?” I asked surprised, but I really didn’t understand why.
“I said that your friend Alexis will be joining us for dinner on Friday.”
“She’s not my friend.” I said.
“Well if I were you I’d try to be friends after all she did save your life.”
“I mean its not like I don’t like her I just never talked to her before she’s like the loner.”
“Well just try to be nice to her will you?”
“Yes father,” I said as I excused myself and headed upstairs. I was really confused for some strange reason I haven’t been able to get Alexis out of my mind and the two men.
I changed clothes and got under my cover so I could rest, which luckily I was able to do until the nightmares came. I woke up almost screaming but caught myself and sat there in the dark, and for some strange reason I couldn’t calm myself that is until I thought of Alexis. There was something about her that I couldn’t get out of my mind, maybe it was her dark demeanor or the fact that she was the one that saved me I really didn’t understand all I knew was that when I felt her arms around me, holding me I felt warmth and comfort. I know that most people would probably think that I was just saying this because she saved me but it’s more than that, I know it is.
“Make sure you call me if you need anything at all you understand?”
“Yes mom I understand don’t worry about me, I just want you to get better.” I said as I gave my mom a last hug before she gave me a kiss on the cheek and headed towards her plane. Okay, so I admit I’m going to miss my mother but what she was doing will finally hopefully help us become closer and that’s really all I’ve ever wanted.
As I saw her leave I just stood there for a while before getting in my car and drove to school luckily for me I wouldn’t be late. I kept thinking on how much my life had changed this weekend and how some things were for the worse and others for the best. Once I got to school I took my time getting my stuff waiting for the minute bell to ring. For some strange reason as I sat down in class I couldn’t help but notice that Lillian’s seat was empty, I mean I wasn’t surprised I wouldn’t be at school for a few more days.
“Mom I’m fine I don’t need to miss school.” I said exasperated.
“Oh sweetheart I know it’s hard just staying in bed but I really think it’d be best if you stayed at home.” My mother said as she patted my shoulder.
“Okay mom I understand you are worried for me but if I stay here I’m going to go crazy.”
“Fine Lillian but if you feel bad at any moment you give me a call, do you understand?”
“Yes mother.” I said happily before driving to school. I mean I knew where my mom was coming from but come on I would die of frustration if I stayed home. I knew I was going to be late for first period so I stopped by to get some breakfast and waited till a few minutes before second period just enough time to sign in and put my stuff in the locker. I was really hoping to get my stuff and get out of the hallway afraid of being ambushed by my friends and their questions but it was too late I was surrounded. I mean okay I almost get raped I am really freaked out but there is no need to make a big commotion about it and that’s what I was about to say before I saw a dark shadow walking by and just left my friends hanging. As I looked at Alexis’ back I couldn’t help but notice how you could see her muscles and how tall and strong she appeared.
“Hey Alex.” I said as I moved next to her, I caught a glimpse of her green eyes before she went back to getting her books.
“I wanted to apologize for what my father did and thank you for saving my life.” I said as I gently touched her shoulder.
“Look Lily, I hope you don’t mind my nickname, I understand that I saved your life and you might feel obliged to be kind to me but I’d appreciate it if you would just leave me alone.” Alex said as she closed her locker and walked away.
I don’t think I’ve ever felt so upset like I felt at that moment, here I am trying to be kind and what do I get an insult, a rejection, I really didn’t know much about Alexis but what I knew is that I wouldn’t bother with her anymore. I really hated that she made me cry though and I didn’t understand how she had such a great affect on me.
Okay so I was thinking and maybe I was too harsh on Lily but I mean why is she trying now to be my friend. I really wasn’t going to stay on this topic but something inside me began to hurt as I saw that Lily had tears in her eyes. Great I thought as I saw her so upset. This day was just going to be perfect I thought and for the most part it was until I got home. I had nothing to do so I took a run and just ran until thoughts begin invading my peace. I decided to head home, take a shower, and relax but it wasn’t even six! So what did I do, I changed into a dark blue button up shirt, black jeans, and some black shoes. I needed to pay someone a visit and apologize.
As I drove to Lily’s house I really didn’t know what I had planned but I did get a white rose, maybe that’ll work I really didn’t know. As I got to her house I put on my leather jacket and put the rose in one of the inside pockets so that her parents wouldn’t think it was weird. Now with as much courage as I had I knocked on the door, luckily her mother answered if not I think the door would have been slammed in my face.
“Hello Mrs. Carter, I was wondering if Lily was here?”
“Yes of course, you’re that girl who saved her right?”
“Yup that would be me, do you think I could talk to her?”
“Yes of course, please come in I’ll show you the way.”
“Thanks.” I said as I fallowed her upstairs and waited as she knocked on Lily’s door.
“Hey sweetheart you have a visitor.” Mrs. Carter said as she indicated towards me. I could see that Lillian really didn’t want to see me by the look on her face but luckily for her mother’s benefit she smiled and welcomed me inside her room while Mrs. Carter left downstairs.
“What are you doing here?”
“Um I wanted to apologize for this morning, I was being an ass and I shouldn’t have been I just… I‘m just not used to having friends I guess you could say. So when you tried talking to me a just responded automatically without much thought and I wanted to apologize.” I said as I looked into her eyes getting a bit lost in there.
“Look clearly you didn’t want anything to do with me so now I don’t want anything to do with you.” Lily said as she turned her back to me.
I didn’t really think I was getting anywhere so I took the rose out and walked behind her but just as I was going to give it to her she turned around and left us close with the rose basically being crushed in between us.
“What do you want from me Alex?” Lily whispered as she looked up into my eyes.I must have gotten lost in her eyes because I felt a little bit light-headed as I replied back,” I want your forgiveness and hopefully another chance to be your friend.”
“Because I know I can be an ass and I think that maybe I could open up with someone and that someone is you.” I replied as I bowed my head closer to hers almost close enough to kiss her when her father’s voice was heard through the door. We jumped back from each other like if we had been burned. I moved away while Lillian held the rose in her hands. I was really confused as to what I had been planning to do so I soon as Mr. Carter walked in I planned on excusing myself.
“Hey Sweetheart, how was your day, your mother told me that you wanted to go to school.”
“Hey dad um yea I didn’t want to stay at home doing nothing, you remember Alex right?”
“Oh yes, Alex my apologies I didn’t realize my little girl had company.”
“It’s cool, I was just leaving anyways, I’ll see you tomorrow Lily.” I said as I smiled.
“Very well, we’ll see you Friday right?”
“Of course.” I said as I opened the door, said goodbye, and headed out the door.
I couldn’t stop thinking of the almost kiss Lily and I shared, I mean we didn’t do anything for crying out loud. As I got home I did my homework and talked with my mom for a while before hanging up. I was glad my mom was getting her act together; it gave me a peace of mind, because right now I don’t think I could have handled her and my emotions. I didn’t know what tomorrow would bring and I didn’t know what I would do about how I was beginning to feel. I went to sleep with so many questions pondering in my head waiting for tomorrow morning.
Oh my gosh, what the hell was I thinking, I almost kissed Alex and not only is she a girl she’s… well she’s amazing, tall, muscular, with green forest eyes, mysterious, and most of all she was willing to give me a chance for friendship. I didn’t know why I forgave her so easily it must have been the look of pain in her eyes, maybe it was the need for something true I heard in her voice, I really didn’t know. Alex wasn’t used to having someone in her life she could trust but I was going to change that.
I was already in class when Lily came in through the door wearing a pair of worn out jeans and a tight pink shirt, which brought a smile on my face because I didn’t think she knows but it looked horrible on her. Lily looked over at me and was about to come when her friends surrounded her and ended up sitting in the front.
As I walked in class I looked over at Alex and saw her looking at me, there was a smile on face and I was about to go ask her why she was so smiley but sadly I became surrounded by my friends. I looked over at Alex and gave her an apologetic smile, which was only answered with another smile of hers. I was trying to answer all my friend’s questions about why I broke up with John, apparently my almost rape was in the past and my break up with the most popular guy in school was the present. Sometimes I really disliked school, but then again it had its ups, like being able to see Alex even though we only had first and second period together oh and seventh too. I must have been thinking a lot because next thing I knew the class was leaving and I was the only one left behind.
I was planning on waking Lily out of her thoughts but her friend was still there and I didn’t know if she would have liked people knowing we talked so I just left her there. Second period again was the same with me in the back and Lily in the front. I really didn’t get to see her much not even during lunch because I didn’t eat I usually went to the library during lunch to read. It wasn’t until seventh period that I saw her and well that talk was a bit crazy.
Today has been totally boring every single time I tried talking to Alex I got interrupted, I thought I was finally going to talk to her in gym class and I did, I think I helped Alex see that I was serious about being her friend. We had a free day today so we were playing basketball and volleyball whatever the student preferred and everything was going well until an argument broke out, and guess who were the two fighting, Alex and the coach. I was playing volleyball with my friends when we heard two voices being raised.
“I want you to run around the gym until the you learn your lesson.”
“I don’t even know what you’re talking about.”
“You know perfectly well Alex what I am talking about, what you did was wrong I don’t know how the coaches may act in the city but in this town I will not take this type of action.”
“Coach I don’t know what you are talking about!” Alex basically screamed but it was a low scream. I had no clue as to what was happening until I saw John and his friends laughing in the corner. I really didn’t know what was happening but I wasn’t about to let John ruin someone else’s day at this school especially not Alex.
“Alex unless you want to get suspended I expect you to do as I say.”
“Okay coach can you at least tell me what it is I supposedly did?”
“No because you know perfectly well what it is you did.”
“Fine.” Alex said at last as she began to run around the gym and that’s when I took action.
I couldn’t believe I was being accused for something I didn’t do; hell I didn’t even know what I was being accused of. However if the coach wasn’t about to listen I wasn’t about to continue arguing with him I tried and it didn’t work out so he could just believe all he wanted I knew the truth.
I was so lost in my thoughts I didn’t realize someone else was running until I felt a light touch on my shoulder. I turned around to find Lily running as well. “What are you doing?’
“Joining my partner in crime.” Lily said with a smile.
“Would you like to share about the crime we committed?”
“Well first things first, we are both innocent and the second thing we are sharing is the fact that we posted posters of naked calendar girls on the coach’s walls of his office.”
“Hell I did that without taking a look and remembering, damn those girls must have been horrible looking.” I said as I smiled at her.
“Ha-ha they were just horrible.” Lily said as she winked at me, which only made me smile even more.
“No but seriously why did you tell the coach you did it as well.”
“I thought it was unfair for you to be accused of something you didn’t do.”
“How do you know I didn’t do it?” I asked curious of her answer.
“Well for one thing you sounded sincere when you asked what it is you supposedly did and I also think it was John and his friends because they were giggling like a pair of school girls.” Lily said as she smiled up at me.
“Mmm okay I guess I could take that accusation as long as I have a pretty partner in crime.” I said as I ran a little faster realizing what I had just said.
“Aw you think I’m pretty.” Lily said as she caught up to me which only led me to run quicker. “Seriously Alex you need to slow down.”
“What’s up short stuff, can’t keep up?”
“I know you didn’t just call me short stuff.”
“What you going to do if I did?” I asked with a huge smile on my face.
“I don’t know make you watch a romance movie, maybe.”
“Ha-ha so now you’re asking me out and what are you going to do strap me down to a chair and hold my eyes open?”
“No I’m just asking if you want to watch a movie after having dinner at my house on Friday.”
“I don’t know I’m pretty busy posting naked pictures.” I said as I winked at Lily.
“Maybe you’ll take some shots of me and post them.” Lily said which made me slow down. Honestly I was too stunned after her response but in the end I caught up to her again.
“How about I just watch the movie?”
“Hmm okay you don’t know what you’re missing out on though.”
“Maybe some other time.”
I couldn’t believe I was openly flirting with Alex and I can’t believe I just basically told her to take pictures of me naked! What has gotten into me? Anyways I was enjoying myself though I haven’t had this much fun in a while. Half of me was conscience about the fact that Alex is a girl and the other just didn’t give a fuck.
“So we have a date for Friday afternoon in my bedroom.” I said smiling at Alex trying to keep up with her strides.
“Hmm don’t you think we’re moving to fast, I mean usually I’d like to date a girl for a much longer period of time before joining her in the bedroom.” Alex said teasingly.
“Whatever.” I said after hitting her on the shoulder.
“Ouch what was that for, someone needs to teach you some manners.”
“Please you couldn’t handle me.”
“Is that an invitation?” Alex asked me and honestly I didn’t know if it was or wasn’t.
“Maybe, maybe not, oh yea I forgot to ask you why were you smiling this morning.”
Alex looked at me with a huge smile and shining eyes basically making my heart flutter pretty fast. “Your shirt.”
“What about my shirt?” I asked curious as to what was so funny about my shirt.
“Um well…” Alex was blushing!
“It looked horrible on you.” Alex said with a hidden smile, at least she had the decency to keep her head down, how dare she insult me that way! I mean I knew she was joking or maybe she wasn’t and was being honest but come on really! Honestly her answer was perfect timing because at that moment I realized everyone was gone and the coach told us to hit the showers; which is exactly what I did.
Wow I honestly didn’t realize that the whole class was gone until coach told us to hit the showers, but of course he wanted to talk to me and to top it all Lily was mad at me! Okay so maybe I shouldn’t have told her my thoughts but come on I was being honest.
“Did you learn your lesson Alex?”
“Well I’m glad now go take a shower.”
“Sir, may I ask you a question?”
“Yes, of course.”
“Why did you want to talk to me and not my partner in crime as well?”
“I don’t think that Lillian had anything to do with this but if she wanted to take the punishment as well then good look to her as well.”
“Oh okay, thanks coach.”
I was ready to go take a shower but first I had some apologizing to do again. Just as I took of my gym shirt and was about to take my sports bra, Lily walked out the shower with a towel rapped around her and of course she was ignoring me.
“I’m sorry Lily for saying you looked horrible in your pink shirt.” I said as I smiled when she stomped by without saying anything huffing like a child. I was leaning against the wall when she turned around and pointed a finger at me.
“Look here,” Lily poked my shoulder as she came closer to me, “I don’t care if you are sexy and you have this mysterious thing going on but I will not let you talk about me.”
“You think I’m sexy?” I asked as I kept this huge smile on my face.
“Ugh that’s besides the point, how do you think it makes me feel that you think I look horrible?”
“Okay hold up I didn’t say that you looked horrible, okay maybe it came out that way but what I meant to say was that the shirt looked horrible on you.” I said as I looked down at Lily her hair wet and wearing just a towel.
“It’s the same thing.”
“No it isn’t Lily because you look mighty beautiful right now and guess what your not wearing the shirt so I say that the shirt need to be burned.” I said knowing there was a twinkle in my eyes.
“Ugh you are so annoying!” Lily said as she tried to punch my shoulder but I ended catching her wrist in my hand and pulling her closer, I had no idea what I was doing I felt like someone else was controlling me. I had her so close like the night before, our lips were close enough to kiss and I really wanted to kiss her but I didn’t want to ruin our newfound friendship.
I could see that Alex wanted to kiss me but at the same time she had a troubled look in her gaze and she began to pull away but that wasn’t happening. With my wrist still in her hand I moved my other hand around her neck and pulled her lips down on mine; I let a soft moan escape my lips as I kissed her. I think I did good by taking the lead because the next thing I knew Alex had me against the wall with one arm on my waist and the other in my hair. She pulled me closer to her lips kissing me deeper making my knees tremble as I tasted her sweet lips against mine. My hands were both in her hair pulling her closer to me and we got lost in the sensation of our lips gliding on each other. Alex slowly slid her tongue into my mouth and my own tongue met hers, it seemed that our lips and tongues were dancing to a special rhythm, as our hands were on each other’s hair pulling each other closer still.
At last after a while of kissing Alex began to pull back but just before her lips let go of mine they nibbled lightly making a shuddering moan escape my lips. We pulled back our heads but still held on to each other’s hair looking into each other’s eyes with smiles on our lips. We must have been so lost in each other’s eyes because we never heard the door open until we heard John’s voice.
“What the hell!”
“Oh my God, what are you doing here John?” I asked as I realized how this must have looked. I was in a towel, which was partially opened and Alex was only wearing her sports bra and gym shorts. I couldn’t help but feel conscience so I let go of Alex and pulled away from in between the wall and Alex.
“What the hell Lillian, I come looking for my girl and instead find her in some chicks arms!”
“John this isn’t what it looks like, I’m no dyke.” I said but realized to late what I said and looked over at Alex, the shining eyes and bright smile that were on her face earlier had turned stone cold in less than a second. John walked closer to Alex and I could see that John was angry so I got in between them.
“How dare you touch my girlfriend?”
“John damn it stop it!” I screamed as he got close to Alex.
“Look John I don’t want to fight you so how about you back up.” Alex said her voice low and calm.
“You don’t tell me what to do.”
“Look man Lillian just wanted to know what it was to kiss a girl, so I kissed her and she just told you that she wasn’t a dyke so that should tell you that she has no interest in other woman so how about you fucking step back.” Alex said with a bit more anger but somehow her words seemed to register in John’s head because he calmed down.
“Your right, Lily wouldn’t date any dyke like you.” I could see that Alex really wanted to take a swing at John but she was holding back.
“I know I’m right, so how about I get my stuff and leave you and Lillian alone.” Alex said as she moved to get her stuff I knew that I just ruined everything we I mean we were back to Lillian. Once Alex got her stuff she walked out the door and I moved after her not caring that John was there.
“Alex wait!” I screamed and luckily for me she waited.
“What the do you want?”
“What I said back there I…”
“Look Lillian how about we both do each other a favor and you go back to John and forget anything ever happened.”
“No Lillian no just go with him and forget everything.”
“It’s not like I can forget what just happened.”
“Well I think it shouldn’t be too hard after all nothing happened and you aren’t a dyke.” Alex said before turning and walked away, I just stood there and watched as her back became smaller and smaller until she was gone. I didn’t know it then but I would later find out that that was going to be the last time I saw her. I think if I knew I would have chased after her or maybe I wouldn’t have. However the simple fact is I didn’t and I broke her heart, I would never see her again, at least not until a few years later.
