Instantly after the kiss I freaked out and ran back home. I didn’t know what to think anymore. My mind was more frantic than it had ever been and my heart was beating with a better skip than it had ever beaten before. I ran into my room and shut the door and got under my blankets. I put my headphones into my ears and turned my iPod all the way up. I seriously had to figure out what the hell just happened.

Chase walked into my room and sat next to me on my bed. I slowly pulled my headphones out of my ears and just looked at him for a moment. I waited for him to tell me something but instead he just gave me a really blank steady look and I tried to absorb it. He hugged me.

Chase and I, like previously stated, were really close but we never really hugged so I was rather caught off guard. I hugged him back and then slightly pushed him away and looked at him as if I were asking him what was going on. He just nodded and walked out of my room. Too many things were going on right now and I wasn’t quite sure how to handle them.

I didn’t see Skylar again until Monday at school in law. I beat her to class and since we had unassigned seating I sat and anxiously waited to see if she’d sit by me. While waiting for class to start I got a text message from Damien. I hid my phone behind my desk and opened it. Honestly, I had kind of forgotten about Damien since Friday night because I hadn’t been over to his house and he never came over to mine. I looked at the text for a moment before reading it and then decided I should actually read it.

It was rather long explaining how beautiful he thought I was and how much I meant to him and how much he missed me and that he wants to wine and dine me soon considering next week he’d be in Juarez, Mexico on a mission trip over Thanksgiving break. I replied that I’d love that more than anything when in reality I didn’t really care whether I saw him or not. I cared about his twin sister.

Suddenly I got goose bumps on my arms and I turned and faced the door and saw Skylar. She winked at me and walked over to me and sat right next to me and started to open her mouth like she was going to say something that she had made up and gone over plenty of times in the mirror. Instead, she let out a deep breath and just looked at me and said calmly,

“Wow…” She looked at me and I could see in her eyes everything she wanted to say and everything she couldn’t say and everything her mind was thinking and it scared me how much I could tell about her in just one glance of her eyes. I swear, when I looked into her eyes I could get lost. She seemed to be everything I had ever dreamed of…in a boy.

I remember lying on the grass with Mandy when we were thirteen. She had just broken up with the “love of her life” Miles and I was consoling her like best friends did. We then went into this tangent about what we wanted out of a boy and a relationship. I remember what I told Mandy,

“I want a boy who can make me smile on the rainiest nastiest most depressing day of the week. I want a boy who loves me no matter what I look like that day. I want a boy who has dreams as high as the stars and they all involve me. I want a boy who when I look him in the eyes I can see in his soul and know everything he wants to say to me. I want a boy to fall in love at first sight with.” I sighed a deep breath and I wasn’t sure if it was of relief or not but whatever it was I liked it.

“Mary, I’m not exactly sure what happened on Friday. I want you to know though, that it was the most amazing feeling I had ever felt in my life. It was rather clichwhen it comes to first kisses except for the fact that you’re my twin brother’s girlfriend and I’m a girl. I’m not exactly sure what we’re supposed to do about the whole situation but I want you to know I think you’re beautiful and I have never felt this way before. Shit, I’ve never even been into chicks before. However, the second I saw you, it seemed like everything changed. The second I kissed you, everything felt right,” she told me so confidently it would be hard to not believe her. I smiled and I nodded my head and I didn’t know what to say after that. I turned and faced the front of the room and tried to focus on learning stuff about C.S.I. but I had much more amazing things on my mind at the time.

I couldn’t focus on anything for the remainder of the day and I didn’t seem to mind that. Every time I looked over at Skylar I just got filled with butterflies and my heart would flip over and my mouth would get dry and I never knew what to say. Sometimes I’d be looking at her and I’d notice her looking at me through her peripherals. It made me smile more and I’d blush a little bit and then have to turn away. I’d just breathe in and out and then momentarily I’d look back over at her and it would happen all over again.

After school that day, as I was walking over to the bus, I was really curious as to if anything would be brought about the kiss. As I sat in the seat that we sat in every day I waited for her to get on and as the bus quickly filled up with rowdy kids I didn’t see her. The time came when someone else had to take her seat and to my dismay, I had to let them. Right before the bus began to leave Skylar flew on and ended up sitting at the very front because that was the only available space. I guess I didn’t mind because I could go home and over to her house anyway.

As I sat on the bus with some weird kid who was reading science fiction novels and trying very discretely to pick his nose, I got a text message from Skylar. I didn’t even have to open it before my heart started to skip a beat. All it said was that she was sorry she was late and that since this week was Thanksgiving Break we needed to spend a lot of time together and since Damien would be gone it would be okay.

The second I read the part about Damien being gone I realized the issue at hand. I was cheating on Damien with his twin sister. Suddenly, I started bashing myself for it because I was obviously doing a really bad thing here. I texted her and told her I really needed to think about the whole situation but it ended up being kicked back into my outbox instead of being sent so Skylar ended up coming over.

There was no one home when we got there, surprisingly, and I liked it that way. Skylar walked over to my bed and grabbed my hand on the way. She sat me down and looked me in the eyes and leaned in to kiss me again. I wanted to. I wanted to so badly but I had to refrain. I got up to shut the door in case anyone came home and when I sat back down she looked at me again.

Her eyes looked more tempting than usually and I finally had to give in. I kissed her and I kissed her with more passion that I’d ever kissed anyone in my entire life. It was magical. It was breath takingly perfect. That was, up until,

“Mary! What the hell is this?” I heard a very familiar voice yelling from my door but it wasn’t until I looked up that I realized who it was.

There she was, Mandy, in the flesh. She stood tall with her hand resting against my door frame. Her jaw was dropped and it seemed as if she had to keep it that way permanently because she was in so much shock from what she just saw. Her eye brows were furrowed and her eyes were burning through me…I could feel them.

I opened my mouth as if I had something to say but then quickly shut it again. I quickly gave Skylar a little shove and she got the hint and escorted herself out of my room without hesitation. I grabbed Mandy’s arm and threw her into my room and shut the door. I looked her square in the eyes and I still don’t think she could speak.

“Look,” I said calmly, “I can explain.” This, however, was a huge lie because the explanation itself would be absolutely ridiculous. She still said nothing and just looked at me as if the world were going to fall apart. She had a lot to say, I could tell. I knew her so well I knew she was just sitting there waiting to let out all the words she was playing over in her head. 5. 4. 3. 2. 1.

“Mary! I really don’t know what the hell I just saw. I don’t even know if I want to know. I spent countless nights lying in bed next to you. I have been in a bikini by you. Shit, Mary, I’ve been naked in front of you! How the hell did I not see this? How the hell did this even happen? Shit, I just…I don’t even know what to say,” her tone wasn’t loud enough for anyone else to hear, thank God, but she was frantic. I didn’t even know what to say to her. I tried my best to muster up some words that would make this all okay but then it hit me. Why the hell was Mandy even in Dallas?!

“Mandy…I…wait, first, before I do any explaining at all…why are you here?!”

“Its Thanksgiving break and my parents thought it’d be nice to fly me down here to see my best friend. I’d never guess I’d walk in on you lip locking with some chick,” she said in a really spiteful tone.

“Alright, well here is it. This is going to sound really, peculiar and you probably won’t know how to take it but honestly, neither do I. So please, can I just get you to listen?”

She nodded and I explained everything to her. I told her about the moment I met Skylar and how everything from then on was complicated and weird and perfect. As I told my story I watched Mandy’s eyes. They didn’t blink too often and I, for once, couldn’t tell at all what she was thinking. I hurried to finish my story, solely for the purpose of knowing her thoughts about it all.

“…and that’s when you came in,” I told her. I let out a deep breath and waited for her response. She sat there in silence for a few moments and I waited very anxiously for her to say something. What she did say, however, ended up causing simply an abundance of more drama.

“Look Mary, I can’t sleep next to you. I’m supposed to be here all damn week and if you think I’m going to sleep next to a faggot you’ve lost your damn mind. I will play this little game so your parents aren’t suspicious because I’m that kind of person. If you try anything, I swear, I swear I will kick your ass,” she said and I didn’t for a second think she was joking. I nodded and turned to open the door so I could get some fresh air. As I did, to make matters worse, I saw Chase standing at the door. His eyes were as wide as quarters and his jaw dropped farther than Mandy’s had been.

This was trouble.

He had heard everything I just explained. He heard every single detail. He looked at me. Not really in dismay but in a “dude my sister is a lesbo?” kinda look. I didn’t really know what was happening but I was scared and my body was continuously shaking and I couldn’t swallow because there was a lump in my throat the size of Kentucky. I didn’t even like Kentucky all that much which just made matters worse.

“Mary?” My brother said my name quietly with a tone that was shocked. I didn’t know what else to do so I nodded. I nodded and walked out of the room.
