Moving out of the car, Heather let out a deep breath when she shut the door
tightly. This was supposed to be a trip that helped her get over Kyle, not
one that brought back memories making her fall in love with him even more.
Staring out at her old house Heather could just remember growing up in this
place. Growing up with her family, wishing like she could just walk away and
leave forever, but now as she found herself looking out to the left she wished
that she was back. She wished that she could just go and crawl out the window
into Kyles room and hide out with him in his arms while it stormed.
She wished that he would tell her how important she was to him because of
right now, thats the thing she wanted the most in life. Him.
Heather, she heard a voice call out to her as she looked back behind herself seeing no one as she let out a long breath realizing that she must be hearing things. The voice almost sounded like Kyles, but it was obvious that now that Kyle was always in her thoughts, she had to be dreaming that. She just had to be thinking that he would be here, his old self--the one that would only be out for loving her.
This is insane, Heather walked back to the car getting in quickly and putting the keys back in to start the car. Closing her eyes, she took in a deep breath she realized that this was the place she was supposed to let go of. I cant do this anymore, I have to let go. I have to.
Staring out at the house once more she looked back before starting to pull away thinking about all the things she was about to pull out of, but even now--she couldnt help but wish for that light to reappear in her life again. Now as she left she could just tell that her life was going to be locked away forever again in that dark closest once Kyle got married. To be truthful she had to be ready, she had to be ready for the heartbreak or else it would hurt even worse.
Kyle moved up the side of the hill slowly seeing the sites that seemed too
familiar to him considering that this was where he hung out. The park that
was right across the street from his house. Wanting to feel like he was back
in his old life, the point in time when he was happy with his parents and
Heather, he came back wanting to place himself in the past.
Once near the top of the hill Kyle let out a tight breath seeing that across from him was something he wasnt expecting to see. Maybe he was just seeing things, hoping to see things, but he swore that he saw Heather before him with her car, staring out at her old house.
Heather, Kyle called out going to move forward before slipping against the wet grass, losing his footing and falling back down the hill that he was once standing on. Now as he laid out against the bottom he let out a small groan pressing his hand in over his back before quickly getting to his feet hoping that he was seeing correctly. Heather, hold on.
Quickly moving up the hill Kyle reached the top running out into the street, only to see the car pulling away as Kyle stopped in the middle of the street shaking his head slowly. Bending down he moved his hands in over his hips and let out a long breath.
It wasnt her, she wouldnt be here, Kyle tried to tell himself looking back toward his car deciding whether or not if he wanted to get in his truck and follow that car. Shaking his head slowly he looked back toward the park deciding that maybe he should just go back and walk around a little bit longer. Even if it was her, she would have answered me when I called out to her. She wouldnt have left, it wasnt her.
Hating the way his mind was playing tricks on him, Kyle kicked at the dirt that covered the road and threw his hands in the air, looking back over toward the hill. Slowly moving down the hill, Kyle walked over to the swings that Heather and him used to play on all the time when they were younger.
What am I doing here? Kyle questioned himself throwing his hands up in the air before shaking his head slowly and letting his hands rest at his side. Taking another look toward the swing set, Kyle walked over and sat down on one of the swings, holding the chains with his hands tightly. Im an idiot thats why Im here.
Hed been here to try and open a door for himself, but he just found himself hoping--dreaming that he could gain the things he wanted in his future. It was his fault that he couldnt have him, it was his own hopeless actions that got him in this state of life. Never did he have the guts to tell Heather the truth, never did he give her the heads up. It was her heart that he was breaking the whole time keeping secrets from her and now they were both going to be broken with his decisions.
You told me to let go, Kyle looked up toward the sky seeing the stars shining brightly above him and he couldnt help, but wish upon a star to give him what he wanted so badly in life. I just cant let you go. I cant let myself do that because I want you so bad.
Everyone told him in the past that he should let go, it was just a matter of time before he met the right girl for him. It was horrible to live his college years the way he did--going from girl to girl trying to find that special person that meant everything to him when in reality it was Heather this whole time.
Kyle come on, Gradys voice echoed the room as Grady
walked into their dorm room and grabbed his wallet from the desk. Grady nodded
over toward Kyle seeing Kyle sitting down on his bed his looking at a picture.
Seriously Kyle, get up.
Im not interested tonight Grady, Kyle ran his left hand through his mid length hair before rubbing his chin slowly, feeling the roughness behind the grizzle that had developed over his skin. Im just not in the mood.
Not in the mood? Come on Kyle, Paul is waiting for us, Grady walked over toward the bed reaching out to grab his watch before turning back to Kyle. Seriously man, the twins are going to be there. Twins Kyle, come on lets go.
Dude, I said no, Kyle shook his head slowly before falling back against his bed, resting his head against his pillows. Looking down at the picture again he let out a long breath and looked over toward Grady, seeing Gradys green eyes staring out at him confused. Its kind of a hard day, okay?
Let me see that, Grady reached for the picture seeing Kyle pull it away before he could grab it. Placing his knee on Kyles right arm he reached for the picture that was in Kyles left hand before seeing Kyle hide the picture in his pants. Oh, thats real mature--putting the picture down the front of your pants.
Well, you arent going to go down there, Kyle nodded slowly letting out a small laugh as Grady got up and rested his hands against his hips angrily. If you go down there man, thats going to be so wrong.
Like I give a damn, Grady placing his knee over Kyles abdomen making sure that Kyle couldnt move as Kyle struggled underneath him. Grady reached his hand underneath Kyles pants getting a hold of the picture before the door opened and their friend Paul stepped in letting out a small gasp, jumping back when he saw what position they were in. Its not what it looks like.
Dude, are you trying to rape Kyle? Paul questioned in almost a scared tone pushing back his long blonde hair before taking a step forward and seeing Grady quickly pull out the picture before shaking his head over and over again. Thats so wrong man.
Its not that, he his this picture and , Grady began looking between Paul and Kyle as Kyle slowly stood up from the bed reaching out to grab the picture. You know what? I dont have to explain myself. Who is this girl?
It doesnt matter, Kyle went to reach for the picture again before Paul snatched it and got a good look at the picture as Kyle reached for it. Paul, come on. Give it back.
Alright man, chill, Paul laughed seeing Kyle glare over at him before putting the picture back in his wallet before sliding his wallet into his pocket. Who was the babe there? Shes hot.
Enough, Kyle snapped sitting back down on his bed seeing Grady sit down on his own bed and Paul took a seat at their desk. Glaring over at the two he could tell that Grady and Paul were just waiting for a story. Okay, shes this girl okay. Today, about two years ago she left and I havent seen her since.
Oh, its a forbidden love. Like those things you see on those soap operas, Paul clapped his hands together before leaning back in the chair staring out at Kyle before seeing Kyle get up slowly. So, what happened? You banged her and left her? She banged you and left? You two bang?
Is that all you care about, Kyle brought his foot into the chair seeing Paul fall back onto the floor and land on his back before letting out a small groan. Soon enough he heard a laugh escape Pauls lips as he slowly got up. And no, it was the girl I loved, but obviously something didnt go right.
Okay, she left you. Its over with, Paul stood up walking over toward Kyle as Grady set the chair up right and Paul placed his hand over Kyles shoulder. Move on man, there a ton of women out there that want some of what Grady was trying to get.
I wasnt , Grady began in a angered tone before he held his hands up in the air, trying not to blow up at his friend. Letting out a few small breaths he looked over toward Kyle and nodded slowly. Hes right man, why dont you just give up on her. She left you, that means she was in the wrong and is missing out on a whole lot. Move on.
Whatever, Kyle went back to the bed and sat down, resting his head back against the pillows looking up toward the ceiling. I dont feel like going tonight guys, just go by yourselves. Ill be here.
Whatever man, Paul reached out to grab the pizza box on Gradys desk before opening it up and taking a piece. Smelling the pizza first, Paul shrugged his shoulders before taking a bite. You should just move on.
Thats nice Paul, Kyle got up pushing Paul over towards the door that Grady had already walked out of. Closing and locking the door behind him, Kyle slid down toward the ground resting his face in his hands before shaking his head slowly. I cant.
Thinking back Kyle could remember the thoughts he had that night, wishing that him and Heather could have had some type of closure to their story. Some type of clue that led him to why she left him that night all alone. Just once he wish he could have understood why she didnt give him a chance to explain why everything was happening. His story ended horribly with Heather because of the villain of the book and what he agreed to in most cases with many people--the villains always get what they deserve.
Hello, Kyle answered after feeling his phone start to go off as he stood up from the swing and started walking over toward the hill he had fell off only a couple of minutes ago. Yeah, Ill be right there to set everything up. Just make sure you have everything ready. Im leaving right now.
Come on, how about we go take Kevin home? Hes obviously out of
it and I know I dont want to stay here any longer, so how about we leave?
Seth suggested standing up from the bench as he walked over toward the car
to open the back door seeing Blake stare out at him angrily and he let out
a long breath. What is it now? Youre giving me that--I did something
Youre not doing anything wrong, Blake began in a small breath before shaking her head slowly and thinking about all the things that were going on. We just cant leave Sarah here like that--shes in there and we have to go back in there for her. I wouldnt be much of a friend if I just left without her.
Why would we go back in there for her when its clearly obvious that she doesnt even want to be coming anywhere with us? Seth questioned throwing his hands up in the air seeing Blake step in closer to him as he unlocked his car only to feel Blake snatch the keys from his fingers. Blake, come on. You know that she doesnt want to come home with us--I dont see why you are doing this. Its stupid. You saw by the way she was all eager to get away from us that she didnt want to be anywhere near Kevin, you, and me.
Well, stupid or not, she began folding her arms out in front of her chest and taking in a sharp breath before thinking about all the things that had been going on with Sarah. Even though Sarah was acting weird, Blake couldnt just leave her here with no way of getting home. If she was stranded here for a few hours because we left, I would feel like a complete and total jerk. I know where you are coming from and I would most of the time agree, but right now--I just cant do that. You have to understand me when I say that.
Fine, but I really dont understand why you would do something like this because I know she would never do it for you, Seth pointed out snatching his keys back from Blake before putting them back in his pocket. Looking up, Seth took in a long breath trying to play out the reasons why Blake would still be so loyal to her best friend. In all honesty if you were in this position she would leave you and--where did Kevin go?
Hes right there on the, Blake turned to look back toward the spot where all three of them had been sitting earlier and she let out a small gasp when she saw that Kevin was no longer there. Moving her hands in over her lips she let out a small gasp. Pointing over toward the bench she shrugged her shoulders, looking around the area before her and shaking her head slowly. Hes on the bench.
Unless Kevin just became the invisible man, I dont think so, Seth worried moving forward and looking around knowing that his cousin was in no condition to be by himself right now. Blake--where did Kevin go? You were watching him, where did he go? He couldnt have just disappeared like that.
I dont know, Blake answered truthfully seeing the look that Seth shot out at her as he started to pace back and forth looking down the sides of the buildings to see if he could find Kevin. Stopping in the middle of the sidewalk, Seth pushed back his hair slowly and thought of the possibilities. I was talking to you and we were just talking about Sarah. I guess ,
You just didnt pay attention, Seth ran his fingers through his hair worriedly looking out toward the end of the street, letting out an angered breath he looked across the street to see if Kevin went that way. Honestly, he is a six foot six man that is very easy to spot when he is around. How could we have lost him?
I dont know, a voice answered behind Seth as Seth looked back over his shoulder letting out a long breath seeing the way Blake looked back too. Who are we looking for?
Kevin, where in the world were you? We were looking for you Kev, you dont just get up and walk away, Seth looked at the things in Kevins hands before Kevin shrugged his shoulders and looked down at the items he just bought. You just scared me half to death--I thought you ran off and you could have been lost.
Arent you the younger one? I feel like Im like your kid right now and its kind of scary. Im sorry I didnt tell you I was leaving, Kevin eyed Seth over carefully before letting out a laugh, looking over at Blake. Holding his things up proudly, he smiled seeing the way she was looking out at him. What do you think? I got these roses for Ria and a teddy bear for her. I dont know why, but I cant stop thinking about her right now and I figured she might like the white teddy bear better. Feel him, hes nice and soft.
Thats cute Kevin, Blake touched the bear that Kevin held out for her before moving her hand in over the center of his back. Motioning him over toward the car she opened the backseat door for Kevin to set his things in. Right now though, we are going to have to go get Sarah out of the club, so why dont you sit right here and wait for us.
Why would I want to do that? Kevin felt Blake pushing against his chest lightly to get him to sit down as he grabbed a hold of Blakes hand and made her move back. Seeing the way that Blake looked up at him, he shook his head slowly not quite knowing what to say before nodding smiling widely. Im sure this stuff can wait in the car a couple of minutes--its important to me, but it wont get hurt. Ill come with you, Im fine.
Are you sure? Blake reassured that it was nothing that he couldnt buy twice over, but still she had to think about his best interest when they felt he was drunk and just hit his head. We will just make this really quick and you dont have to follow us.
Yes, he does, Seth wrapped his arm around Kevins, motioning Kevin over toward the club as Kevin nodded slowly and looked between both Seth and Blake. I dont want him disappearing on me like he just did.
All I did was buy Ria some flowers, Im not twelve years old you know, Kevin frowned thinking about where they were going as he tried to tug his arms back a little bit. Hey, if we are picking Sarah up--could you please make her sit in the front seat with you Seth? When I was with her she was trying to do everything but be my friend and what she was doing, I sure as hell dont want to be doing with her.
Sure Kevin, whatever you want, Blake muttered not really even knowing what Kevin was talking about, but went along with it for reasons because of his drinking earlier. If Kevin really was drunk, then she didnt want to get in a fight with him when she was about to go look for Sarah. Ill sit in the back with you if you would like.
Thank you very much, I really appreciate that, Kevin smiled widely pulling his arms away from Seth and Blake, not quite sure why they were using him like a tugging rope as he fixed the collar of his shirt. When Seth reached out to grab him again, Kevin frowned and pulled his arm away from Seth showing that he could walk by himself. Ill show you where I think I saw her last, I was the last person to be around her you know.
Nodding slowly, they followed Kevin back into the club as he stepped in, pausing to look around the area before them and tried to see where Sarah had run off to. Pointing over toward the bar Seth and Blake moved forward, feeling him following them not far behind. When Blake moved in closer to the bar she realized that Kevin had been right in his predictions as to where Sarah was when she saw Sarah standing there with that guy she was with when they left.
Oh my, they heard a small gasp come out of Kevins mouth as they both turned around to see Kevin looking back toward a group of young females as Seth reached out to grab Kevins arm when Kevin motioned him to wait a second. Who just grabbed my butt?
Kevin, come on, Blake moved her hand in over Kevins shoulder seeing the way that Kevin looked back at her and the way the girls laughed. Seeing Kevins dark eyes look back over toward the group he saw one of the girls elbow the center girl lightly. No one grabbed your butt.
I know someone grabbed my butt Blake, I think I know what it feels like when someone squeezes your butt when you are walking by, Kevin stated once more moving in closer to the crowd of girls--staring into the dark brown eyes of the girl that was standing in the middle. Were you the one that did it?
Seeing the girl blush and look away from Kevin, Kevin felt one of the girls move her hand in over his shoulder and caress it gently as he arched his eyebrows up almost shocked by how free these girls felt to show they thought he was good looking.
Honestly sweetheart, you were the one that grabbed me, werent you? Kevin questioned noticing the way she tried to keep the eye contact away and Kevin reached his index finger out in underneath her chin before arching her head up towards him. Was it you?
Come on girl, one of the girls friends pushed at the girls shoulder gently before eyeing Kevin over slowly. Hes a hunk and just let him know it was you.
You know, I understand you all think Im a hunk because I am. But how would you like it if I just came over and grabbed your butt out of nowhere when you were just minding your own business? Kevin questioned softly seeing the girls look at their friends before Kevin thought that over for a moment and shook his head slowly. Never mind. You would probably like that.
Kevin, Blake tried to urge Kevin back from the conversation as he motioned her to wait for him a second. Blake watched the girls smile up at Kevin like they thought Kevin was flirting with them or something as Kevin moved forward once more. Kevin, seriously. Its not worth your time.
Yes, it is. They need to know that it isnt right to just come over and grab some random persons butt, Kevin replied once more seeing the way that Seth half laughed before straightening up when Blake looked back at him. Now how would any of you girls like it if out of no where you were dancing and I just came up and started grinding into you and yeah, youd probably like that too.
Kevin, we have to get Sarah, Blake looked back seeing Sarah laughing with the guy she was with before she tugged on Kevins arm again. Seeing Kevin shoot her back a glance motioning her to wait, she let go of Kevins arm and let out a long breath showing that this was taking too long for her. If she leaves and we cant find her, then Im going to get really pissed.
Ill think of something, Kevin hushed her moving his index finger in over his lips motioning her to be quiet before looking back toward the girls. How would you like it if I I cant think of anything.
How about, how would you like it if you just walked away and didnt pay them any more attention? Seth suggested seeing Kevin smile and look back toward him as Seth moved his hand in over Kevins shoulder. Before Blake kicks your butt.
Thats a great one, Kevin nodded quickly walking away from the crowd before following Seth behind Blake over toward the bar. Leaning down to speak more clearly to Seth over the loud music Kevin let out a small laugh. How did you come up with such a good one?
Because I knew you would have gotten your butt kicked if you didnt agree, Seth added hearing Kevin let out a small laugh as he wrapped his arm around his cousins shoulders seeing Blake approach Sarah and stand before her. I dont think shes really happy right now with Sarah.
Sarah, Blake reached out to grab Sarahs arm seeing the way that Sarah looked back and snarled at her as Blake took a small step back, arching her eyebrows as she motioned Sarah to follow her. We have to get going now, you have a big day ahead of you.
I really dont want to go right now, Drew and I are having a good time, Sarah informed her with a small frown looking back toward Drew and her smile reappeared. I have to tell you that I came here to have a good time and I swear to you that I will have a good time no matter what.
Sarah, honestly, Blake tried to get a hold of Sarahs arm again seeing Sarah pull it away from her angrily as Blake let out a long breath. You really should come with me right now because I dont think this place is good with you. Im sure Kyle would agree with me and if you werent drunk--you probably would too.
You know what, Kevin moved forward placing his hand over Blakes shoulder seeing the way that Blake looked back at him with her blue eyes. I know a way to get her to come with us, I promise. Hey Sarah, when we get back in the car--Ill let you blow me.
Kevin, Blake elbowed Kevin in the ribs hearing him let out a small noise before laughing as she stared up at him with her blue eyes. You are bad with this whole kind of thing arent you?
Im not kidding she wanted to earlier, Kevin pointed out seeing Blakes eyes get wider if that was even possible as he took in a small breath and watched Sarah move in toward her drink again. So honestly Sarah, lets just go.
Listen jerk, she doesnt want to leave with you guys, Drew pushed Kevin in the center of the shoulder seeing a muscle in Kevins jaw tighten as he looked down toward the spot Drew dug his fingers into. She doesnt want a Mexican like you, she wants a white boy, Drew stated seeing the way that Kevin looked up at him with an angered expression and before he knew it, he felt Kevins fist collide with his jaw sending him back to the floor in a thud as he let out a long groan. Oh shit.
Mexican? Kevin questioned with an angered expression his eyebrows
tensing together as he saw Sarah bend down to check if he was okay. Looking
back at Seth, Kevin through his hands up in the air and shook his head slowly.
You racist son of a bitch, Im Greek and Filipino. Beyond that
fuzz bucket, I know that between me and you--I would get more chicks than
you any day. So why dont you back off white boy as you would put it.
You know what, get back here, Drew got up from where he was on the ground as Kevin was about to walk away. Kevin turned around to face Drew and Drew went to hit him before Kevin ducked and Drews fist collided with Seths jaw. Before he could recognize what he did, he felt Kevins fist slam into the side of his face knocking him down toward the ground again. Damn.
Watch what you do you asshole, Kevin hissed down at Drew seeing the way that Sarah still seemed to care for this guy as he motioned Blake to follow him back. You know what--it doesnt matter with her anymore. Lets just go, she isnt worth it.
Yeah, youre right, Seth twisted his jaw in a small amount of pain, trying to get it to loosen up just a little bit. Im ready to go because thats what I told you from the beginning Blake. She is obviously busy with this jerk so lets just go before someone else decks me.
Sounds like a good idea, Kevin moved his hand in over Seths shoulder before looking down at Sarah and Drew and taking in a deep breath. Sarah, honestly. You go from the top of the line to the bottom of the line. At least you could have picked someone a little good looking.
Motioning Blake to follow him and Seth toward the door, Kevin looked back seeing Drew slowly getting up and Sarah standing over with him. Shaking his head slowly, Kevin finally realized that there was a lot of dumb people in the world today that were willing to do anything for just a little bit of attention.
Remind me why she is your friend again, Kevin looked over at Blake seeing Blake shrug her shoulders as they walked out of the club and Kevin got in the back of the car, laying back against the seat. Honestly, shes a jerk.
I think she is just a nice person, Seth looked back at Kevin rubbing his jaw slowly and letting out a small hiss before starting up the car and reaching his right hand out to grab hers. Thats one of the things I love the most about her too.
"Yeah Blake is a sweetheart," Kevin closed his eyes tipipng his head back and grinning now that he was in the comfort of the car. "Shes a real princess and I love her. I really do. Seth you are one lucky man because Blake is gorgeous inside and out."
"I know," Seth sighed glancing over to where Blake still stood outside the car contemplating her next move. "Shes a good person."
"Yeah even if her best friend is a real bitch. And just for the record," Kevin wrinkled his nose at the very thought of Sarah, "I never, ever wouldve let that slut touch me. I was just trying to bait her into leaving with us."
"Yeah I know Kevin," Seth nodded glancing out towards Blake again.
"No Im serious. Shes a bitch. A real bitch and no man deserves to be stuck with something that awful," Kevin groaned inwardly shaking his head again and wondering how in the world Kyle would want to marry someone so ridiculous.
You know I have a feeling that tonight is going to be something special,
Angela noted reaching out to embrace Brant all over again especially now after
they were basking in the after math of their engagement. She slid her arms
around his torso tighter than before and tipped her head up to tease her lips
against his lightly, First we have our good news and maybe by the end
of the night well see the same for Don and Shannon once they come on
over here and see the romantic air we put to this place tonight.
As appreciated as this all is, its not going to happen, Don informed the both of them as his voice slurred from the opposite side of the room. Shannons not showing up tonight.
Why does that not surprise me? Brant frowned releasing Angela in order to turn around and face his friend. Before Brant could say anything further about Shannon, he noticed that Don had some kind of towel over the top of his head and it appeared to be covered with blood--Dons blood. Frowning Brant took a step forward approaching his glossy eyed friend. Don, what the hell just happened?
Im fine, Don tried to play down the situation that still had his head aching like no tomorrow. He pulled the white towel away from his head only to notice the blood soaking it and he let out a small groan. He staggered to the left stumbling into a chair before bringing his other hand over his stomach. I think Im going to pass out.
Let me take a look at you, Angela rushed forward moving in to inspect Dons injuries once he almost knocked another chair over.
Brant rushed over to him as well doing his best to help Don take a seat on one of the small, black couches that this particular restaurant had in the dining area in order to promote a more intimate feel for those couples looking to bring an air of closeness to the meal before them. He realized that Dons blood was over his shirt as well and worry poured over him.
What happened? Brant asked again reaching out to snap his fingers in front of Dons eyes once he realized that Don seemed to be out of the realm of reality for the moment.
Shannon and I just got into a little fight--thats all, Don sighed heavily closing his eyes and moving to plop his head back against the wall behind where he was seated. He winced and let out a pinched moan, Damn that hurt.
What the hell did she do to you? Brant questioned anger pouring over him. Damn it Don we need to get you to the hospital.
Im fine, Don waved his hand around in the air lazily, I just drove over here and
You drove over here in this condition, Angela frowned realizing that there was more going on than what Don was telling them. She exchanged worried glances with Brant before moving in to inspect Dons head once again. He gently pushed her hand away.
Im fine Angie, Don shrugged off her efforts. Its just a minor head wound. You know how head wounds tend to bleed. Its like a fountain or something with the way they spray and
And nothing, she shook her head at him not buying into what he was telling her. Turning her attention to Brant she pointed over towards the bar area, Go and see if they have a first aid kit or something back there and while youre at it, get your coat because were taking him to the hospital.
No! Don snapped, his eyelids popping open to reveal his wide blue eyes, Im fine
The hell you are, Brant argued with him all the while feeling his blood boil at the thought of what Shannon had done to his best friend. What the hell caused her to hurt you like this?
She was drunk, Don blurted out honestly feeling his frustrations mounting. We got into an argument and before I knew it she hit me
With what? Her truck? Brant questioned with a concerned gaze.
No, Don laughed at the thought, but damn that probably wouldve hurt a whole hell of a lot more than this.
What exactly is this? Brant asked again seeing Dons head drop back and hit the wall again.
Man Im tired. I really shouldve rested before I came over, Don ignored his friends questioning before looking up at Angela, who was trying to maneuver her way into getting a closer look at his head. He waved his hand out in front of himself before offering up a lazy smile, I think Im just going to take a nap here for a while and
Don no, Angela spoke up watching Don plop over to his side on the sofa.
Don dropped the towel hed been holding and Brant watched it fall to the floor with a horrified expression. He stood frozen for a moment before realizing that Angela was snapping her fingers at him to get his attention.
Brant the first aid kit, she instructed seeing Brant nod before she focused on Don once again. He curled his legs up on the cushion he was on and he closed his eyes as if he didnt have a care in the world. She moved forward to try to reach out to him, but felt his arm flop to the floor in front of him causing her to step back.
Don look at me, Angela snapped seeing his eyes open for a brief moment before he closed them again.
Just a few more minutes mom, he yawned attempting to roll over when Angela saw Brant returning.
Can you get him up a little bit? Angela questioned reaching for the first aid kit Brant had brought over. I need to look at his head and
No problem, Brant nodded getting to her request. He struggled to pull his much larger best friend up off of the couch into a seated position, but before Brant could get him right into place, Don flopped back onto the sofa with Brant beneath him. Dons arm draped around Brant and Brant let out a small, pinched yelp.
Angela a little help would be nice Brant mouthed waving his hand at his fiancée.
She nodded accordingly and leaned over the both men to pull at the couch cushion, thus sending both men to the ground. Don rolled directly on top of Brant and Brant yelped now that his best friend was laying completely on top of him.
Don! Don! Brant shouted out his name hoping to rouse Don from the obvious slumber that was threatening. Don, man wake up!
Huh? Dons blue eyes reopened and he focused on Brant for a second. A smile of recognition washed over Dons features before Dons head flopped forward over Brants shoulder.
Don get off me, Brant shouted feeling Dons nose nuzzling into his neck.
Oh come on baby you know you like to cuddle, Dons muffled voice whispered hotly against the side of Brants neck before Dons arm curled around Brants torso.
Don for the last damn time get off of me! Brant practically leapt off of the floor and Dons eyes snapped open with surprise.
What in the world were you Don groaned feeling Brant push him back to sit up against the couch while on the floor. How did you get there and
Don, what happened with Shannon? Brant questioned reaching out to steady his friends lingering gaze. Where is she?
I dont know, Don shrugged. I threw her out after she hit me with the bottle.
A bottle? Brant repeated surprise in his tone. She hit you with a bottle?
Don nodded again, Broke the damn thing over my head too and man did it hurt.
Damn her. When I get my hands on her, Brant mouthed his blood boiling in learning what Shannon had done.
Don, right now you have to let me look at your head, Angela interrupted before Brants anger could get the best of him. Will you stay still long enough for me to do that?
Don nodded, I dont feel like moving right now. I think Id like to rest and forget about the night I left behind me.
Don, we need to get you looked at, Brant decided blurting out his thoughts, You need to tell me where Matt is and
Hes not home, Don closed his eyes once again letting out an exaggerated breath, At least I dont think hes home.
What do you mean you dont think hes home? Don, where is he? Is he with Shannon? Brant questioned with a worried expression. If hes with her, you need to tell me where they are so that I can get him and
I think hes with my mom, Dons glazed over eyes snapped up to his pal, at least I think he is. Oh God, Brant where is my son? What happened to my son?
Im sure hes fine, Angela glanced over at Brant, who was now just as worried as Don was. In fact, why doesnt Brant go call your mother just to make sure that Matt is still with her?
Thats a great idea, Don smiled goofily tipping his head up to look at Angela, You are so smart Angie. I knew that you were full of great ideas
I try to be, Angela smiled down at him before looking to Brant again, Go call his mother and ask her about Matt, then get your car keys because were still going to take him in to get checked out.
I dont want to go to the hospital. Right now thats not where I want to be, Don pouted kicking his foot out in front of him and nearly falling over in the process.
Don, were only going to do whats best for you, Brant tried to explain to him, a worried expression still lingering over his face.
Then find Matt, Don reached out to take Brants hand in his. Find my son and make sure he is okay. I need to find him and
Ill be right on it, Brant promised before eyeing Angela intently.
I think well be okay with what I have in here, Angela promised seeing the hesitation in Brant to leave with Don still bleeding all over the place.
Are you sure? Brant couldnt help but ask.
Go find out about Matt. I can handle this, Angela promised seeing Brant reluctantly get up off of the floor and walk over to the other side of the bar.
Once Angela was alone with Don, she moved in closer to take a look at his head. He turned ever so slightly to the left and she frowned. Taking in a breath, she placed her hands on his shoulders and took a step forward.
Don, you have to stay still because Im going to move over you and see whats going on with your head, she started to explain stepping over his legs and straddling his thighs.
Thats a loaded statement because you might be afraid of what you find, he laughed lightly, his blue eyes slowly coming into focus to find her right in front of him, his gaze fixed on her chest. His eyes widened and he let out a small yelp feeling her poke at his head. Ouch!
I realize youre hurt, but keep your eyes somewhere neutral, she warned seeing the haze that seemed to sweep over him when she snapped on him. Then again focus wherever you like if it keeps you awake.
Don couldnt help but laugh at the comment, raising his hand up a bit off of the ground to reach out to her, but instead he dropped his palm down to the floor again. Does Brant realize what a tease hes in love with? Youre a vixen, arent you?
Ive been told I have the tendencies, she nodded in response doing her best to clean up the wound on his head, and youll be happy to know that this vixen doesnt see anything that looks even remotely close to glass in here or
I told you it was just a typical head wound, he shrugged his shoulders absentmindedly.
Don there is nothing typical about your wife slamming a bottle over your forehead, she frowned wiping at his wound. She felt him flinch and she let out a long sigh, speaking of which, what prompted her to do such a stupid thing?
She was drunk, Don confessed with a small frown, Shes an alcoholic and shes been angry with me lately. I dont know if its because shes stressed out over Nate or because she just cant accept the man that I am, but
But nothing, she touched his cheek gently, urging him to meet her worried gaze, Don there is no excuse for any woman doing this to the man she loves.
Oh come on. You cant tell me that you havent felt the need to do something like this to Brant maybe once or twice, he wiggled his brow at her and let out a laugh upon the way her face twisted in expression, Yeah thats what I thought.
If I did something like that to Brant Im sure he would deserve it. You on the other hand, well Im not so convinced of that, she continued to clean up the wound finding herself relieved that most of the blood on Dons towel seemed to have been there before his arrival at the restaurant.
Ah, and here we are again in a moment where you have more faith in me than my wife, he mused with a tiny laugh, How is it that you and I have forged such a bond in such a little time?
Youve accepted me into your life and Brants, she smiled down at him, a thoughtful expression sweeping over her, Sometimes thats all it takes.
You sure dont have too high of expectations, do you? he teased feeling a laugh build up in the back of his throat. Oh that hurts
But it feels good after the stress, doesnt it? she couldnt help but feel a moment of relief at his newfound attempt at humor.
Sometimes laughter is truly the only way to get through something, he nodded in agreement bringing his hand up to his head. Damn this hurts though.
It isnt as bad as I thought it was, but Id still like you to her words came to an abrupt stop when a gasp slipped from her lips.
Whats wrong? Don questioned his eyes widening when she released him and brought her hand over her own abdomen. Is something wrong?
No, she shook her head, unable to repress the grin that swept over her, I mean not really I was just
Just what? he arched a curious brow before noticing the way she was holding her abdomen. Are you hurting?
No, she shook her head once more, Its just that they are
What? he asked worriedly.
Moving, Angela blurted out caught up in the moment. Another sensation poured over her and she laughed again, I think they are kicking up a storm in there right now.
Really? Dons eyes widened with curiosity. He reached out in an attempt to touch her abdomen, but stopped himself mid-movement to look up at her again, May I?
Um sure, Angela reached for his hand bringing it up over her stomach when she felt another flicker of movement.
Oh my God, Dons eyes perked up excitedly. They really are moving in there, arent they?
Youd think that they were having their own battle, Angela leaned forward feeling another movement inside of her.
Come here. Sit down, Don instructed pulling her down onto his lap. He realized how it mustve looked for a moment and he spoke up again, I just want to get a closer look here
I didnt think you were trying to make a move on me, she replied seating herself on his lap, because if you did Brant would have to finish the job Shannon started.
I would do it for him if I sank that low, Don informed her point blank, his hand returning to her abdomen. A wide grin spilled over his features and he looked down to her midsection curiously, You know this was always my favorite part when Stephanie was pregnant with Matt. I know she used to think it was silly, but when Matt moved I would get all excited and spend hours just waiting beside her to feel him. I used to read to him and sing to him and tell him stories about the things Brant and I would do when we were younger, which Stephanie used to try to quiet me down about considering that some of them were a little too mature for him.
Ill bet, she laughed lightly seeing the way that his whole face lit up at the mention of his son.
She didnt let me get away with any crap you see, Don laughed more so to himself than anything, but she still let me do what I loved to do in talking to our son even risking my warping his mind at such a young age. I remember one time when I had a heavy work load I wasnt able to be there, so I took this tape recorder with me and when she was sleeping, I would recite stories--you know like The Cat in the Hat and so forth. Id tape them and then when I was at work, I would give her the tape and make her put some headphones on her abdomen just so he could hear my voice and know I loved him--so that he knew that I was always going to be there. I spent hours making those tapes--hours telling him about all the things he had ahead of him and even though it sounds crazy, it was something that I loved doing so very much when she was pregnant. It was such a special time for me
It sounds like it, Angela replied with a thoughtful expression, Youre a wonderful father Don and you can see how much Matt loves you.
Hes everything to me, Don mouthed with a proud smile, Just like you and the little ones are everything to Brant.
I know, she smiled thinking about Brants marriage proposal.
So tell me, Don couldnt help but ask, Do you two know what youre having yet?
Not yet, Angela shook her head.
Dont you want to know? he arched a curious brow seemingly more alert once they started talking about their children. Because if you want to, then I would be more than happy to help you find out. I could do an ultrasound for you and Brant and
I just havent had the time to find out, she informed him honestly, Everything has been kind of up in the air lately and we havent really taken the time to
Matts fine, Brant explained entering the room to find Don and Angela on the floor with one another. He gave them a strange look before seeing that Don was more responsive than hed been earlier.
I think Im going to steal her, Don teased wrapping his arms around Angelas waist and pulling her in closer to him.
If I even half believed you I might have to break a bottle over your head, Brant teased back taking note of his friends tone, in which case youd be in big trouble, but considering that you tried to make out with me a few minutes ago I think Im willing to overlook it.
Oh youve got me, Don snapped his fingers in front of himself before turning to Angela, the truth is out. Brants my dream lover and hes just in denial trying to resist my charms.
For the record bleeding all over the place isnt a good start to turning me on Don, Brants tone turned suddenly serious, speaking of which
Hes doing okay right now, though I wouldnt mind taking a second look at the hospital, Angela offered up carefully maneuvering herself off of Dons lap.
That sounds like a good plan considering that I called your mom and Matt is fine. Hes with them watching a movie and is going to stay the night there, Brant continued to explain to his friend.
So then hes okay? Don released a breath of relief.
Brant nodded, He said that he loves you and wants to talk to you later.
Ill have to call him, Don paused a look of worry over him, and my mom?
Even though I should have told her what happened considering the details were a bit hazy on my end, I figured that I would see what was happening before I got her in an uproar, so spill it, Brant decided folding his arms in front of his chest, What happened now with Shannon?
I dont even want to get into it, Don groaned inwardly.
Good because right now isnt the time. Were going to take Don to the hospital, Angela decided standing up again. Were going to take another look at his head and
No way, Don refused her offer and attempted to pull himself up off of the ground. Im not going to the hospital.
Sure you are, she looked over at Don again, because Im going to look at your head and then youre going to let Brant and I know the truth about our babies.
The truth? Brant arched a curious brow seeing the way that Don and Angela exchanged glances with one another. What do you mean?
Well daddy, Angela stepped towards him, reaching for his hand and placing it over her abdomen, since your children want to make their presence known tonight, what do you say we take a trip and find out if were going to be needing to make a blue or pink nursery?
You mean, Brants eyes widened when he felt movement in her abdomen. He looked to her in awe, Is that really them?
She nodded again, Ready and eager to let us know that they are wanting to get out and start making our lives a living nightmare when were filled with constant worries about keeping them out of trouble.
And if they take after you and I Brant, then you know they are bound to be trouble, Don added with a hearty laugh, So what do you say buddy? Want to see what youre going to be having so you can figure out how youre going to name my god children after me?
God children? Brant repeated with a curious expression.
Thats right. Uncle Don isnt going to accept anything less with these two, Don explained matter of fact, So what do you say? We go see whats happening inside of my head and then well see whether or not youre going to need to invest in a new shotgun to keep the boys away from your daughters or a better security system to keep your sons from breaking out of the mansion like we used to do when we were young?
I say that my children arent going to be nearly as miserable as you and I were Don, Brant mouthed watching Don spill into a fit of laughter.
Whose delusional now, Don chuckled with mild amusement pointing to his head, I might have got knocked around tonight, but Im even smart enough to know that any child of yours is doomed to be a holy terror.
Hey I resent that. Besides Matt is a good kid. You are doing just fine with him, Brant countered with a frown.
Yeah well thats because he hasnt realized that girls dont have cooties yet. When he does Im positive that Im going to get gray hairs trying to keep him out of trouble and away from the things that I did, Don confessed his face growing red at some of the memories coming back to him.
You mean that you still do, Brant taunted in response walking over to help his friend off of the ground. But for what its worth, if getting you over to the hospital will help me get a look at my babies, then Im all for it. I want to see them. Its been far too long already.
Then were off, Don stumbled forward nearly falling to the ground again when reaching in his pocket for his car keys.
Ill be driving, Brant decided wondering if his friend was really going to be okay after the obvious encounter hed had with Shannon. Looking over to Angela Brant knew that they had a lot to talk about, but for now he would go with the flow of the situation knowing that in getting Don to a hospital they might be able to get to the heart of what was going on with him and Shannon.
So, what do you think? Dean walked into the living room seeing
Deidra laid out on the couch before him as a wide smile spread out over his
features. You look amazing I hope you know. Of course you always look
Is that so? Deidras eyes perked up seeing the way that Dean was looking at her as he eyed her over walking over toward the couch. Im glad you think that way because I always think you look sexy no matter what.
Well then, Dean moved forward placing his hand over the arm of the chair, tilting his head to the side seeing the way that Deidras dark eyes looked up into his. I would have to say that right about now there are so many things I can think of doing right now. Youre the sexy one right now and if I told you what I was thinking, you might think I was crazy.
Well, Deidra smiled looking over toward the side table seeing the champagne that rested on top of the table and a wide smile spread out over her beautiful features. Looking back toward Dean she slowly unbuttoned to two buttons on her shirt to tease him a bit. I think I want to hear how crazy you really are.
I think I would have to be put into a mental institution for the thoughts Im having right now, he wiggled his eyebrows up and down, moving forward and getting in over her carefully. Feeling her fingers move in over his back, he let out a long breath feeling them slide in through his thick dark hair. We have a bottle of champagne and we are all alone. Tell me, you have to have the same kind of thoughts Im having.
Well, if I told you what I was thinking, it wouldnt be much fun, Deidra mused pushing at the center of Deans chest so that he was on his back and she moved in over him, straddling his waist slowly. Reaching out she slowly plucked open the buttons of his shirt slowly, feeling his hands slide in over the sides of her hips. Now would it?
No fun at all, Dean admitted nodding slowly before moving forward and pressing his lips in over the side of Deidras neck, taking tiny nibbles at her skin feeling her fingertips moving in over his bare abdomen. I have to tell you, I happen to enjoy every moment we have alone together.
I need to talk to you, a voice echoed through the room scaring both Deidra and Dean, making Deidra fall off Deans lap onto the floor in a flood. Seeing Shannon before him, Dean quickly buttoned up his shirt shaking his head slowly as Deidra slowly got to a sitting position on the floor. I dont know who Don thinks he is, but he sure as hell isnt as great as he thinks he is.
Shannon, can I ask you something? Dean questioned seeing Shannon nod slowly before moving across the room and sitting down on the chair that was next to the couch they were just on. Why the hell are you here and how in the world did you get into the house?
Well, the door was unlocked. Hope that doesnt bother you, Shannon answered truthfully seeing Dean roll his eyes before running his hand through his messy dark hair. Leaning forward, Shannon rested her elbows against her knees before shaking her head slowly. I dont know what to say about why I am here. All I know is that Don is a jerk that doesnt care about anyone.
He cant be as bad as you are making him out to be, Deidra sighed getting up from the floor and slowly wiping her hand off on her pants, seeing Shannon dark eyes staring out into hers. He seems like a very nice guy at the hospital.
Are you married to him? Shannon snapped glaring up at Deidra seeing her throw her hands up in the air. Leaning back against the couch Shannon let out a long sigh not quite sure knowing what to think as she sat in the middle of the room with Dean. He is such an ass.
Whatever you say, Deidra threw her hands up in the air and tried not to think of coming back with some jerky comment toward Shannon. Looking over at Dean she shrugged her shoulders and nodded over toward the kitchen. I guess Ill go put the champagne back on the ice.
Thats a good idea, Dean decided with a small nod watching Deidra walk back into the kitchen before giving his attention back to Shannon and letting out a small breath. Now how about we start from the beginning.
Are you sure youre up for this? Ben questioned placing
his hand on the small of Dianes back as they stood with one another
in the archway outside the quiet Italian restaurant that Diane had insisted
upon them going out to once Ben had revealed his plans for the evening. At
the time shed been thrilled about the idea of their reservations, but
now he couldnt help but be worried about how tired she looked. Because
you know if you arent feeling up to this, we can always go home and
And nothing, Diane reached out to place her index finger over the center of his lips to silence him. I think tonight is exactly what we need to unwind. This is good for us. You wouldnt want to spend our lives like hermits now would you?
I wasnt suggesting that, but Ben felt her press her index finger over his lips again, never mind. Lets go get something to eat.
Smart man, she grinned triumphantly turning to walk into the restaurant ready to enjoy a night of fine dining and relaxation with the man she loved. Tipping her head up, she looked over at him with a bright grin, Its been far too long since weve just taken the time to unwind and have fun.
Hmm, well how about we work on changing that tonight? Ben suggested stepping in behind her and wrapping his arms around her waist. He bent down to press a kiss over the back of her neck before whispering in her ear, I love you.
I love you too, she arched back into him feeling her grin expand when she spotted someone out of the corner of her eye. She stiffened upon recognition of someone seated across the bar.
Whats wrong? Ben tipped his head up to see Dianes gaze was centered on someone in front of them. His eyes followed hers and thats when he felt himself tense up at the sight of JT. Frowning he curled his arm around Dianes waist protectively. Maybe this was a bad idea
No, she shook her head adamantly, Its not. Ben, we cant avoid him forever and if we run out of here now itll just make him feel like he won here.
There isnt anything to win in this situation Diane, Ben reminded her with a small frown, The last thing either one of us need is a confrontation.
JT is too much of a worm to weasel himself into a confrontation of any kind especially considering that, Dianes words came to a screeching halt when she spotted the slender brunette woman approaching JT.
Her eyes widened when she watched JT rise off of the stool near the bar to greet the petite woman at his side. His arms wrapped around her waist and pulled her in for a quick kiss before the girl flipped her long, dark hair over her shoulder with an amused round of laughter. She swatted at JTs chest lightly before JT curled her in closer to him kissing her once again.
Well what do we have here, Diane couldnt help but mouth aloud seeing the way JT seemed to be hanging all over the mystery girl at his side.
I guess he wont be a problem after all, Ben decided giving Diane a second look, though if its going to bother you that hes here maybe we should just call it quits and leave for the night.
No, Diane shook her head adamantly, Just because JT picked up some new skank doesnt mean that I have to go run in hiding.
Diane, I dont know if Ben started again worried by the tone of her voice. He looked down at her seeing a spark of something that he hoped wouldnt transcend into jealousy behind her eyes, but before he could issue another thought on the matter, he felt her reach for his hand decidedly as she guided him over towards the front area.
Were going to have a good time tonight Ben and we arent going to let JT or his latest plaything spoil that for us. Im finished with him and hes not a part of my life anymore, she turned around to face him with a small smile, You are and thats what is important. Hes the past.
Im not worried about that, but given what you just Ben started again with a small frown.
Ben, trust me I couldnt care less about him being here, Diane promised glancing over her shoulder once again as she couldnt help but wonder about JTs latest plaything. Still while she told herself she was going to ignore JT, she decided that if by some chance she did happen to find out who the girl was that he was with, she would just find her way into warning the girl that it was smart to get away while she still could!
So what do you think? JT questioned pulling Evie closer to him
once again. He tipped his head down to kiss her gently before smiling down
at her. Do you like this place?
Its nice, she reached out to slide her arms around his waist greedily, but I have to admit I enjoy the company a whole lot more.
Keep talking that way and youre going to swell my ego, he laughed lightly offering up a small wink.
Your ego isnt the only thing I was planning on have swell tonight, she whispered tipping up on her toes and nibbling on his lower lip in a seductive movement.
As tempting as that sounds, I told you that were going to take things slow, JT explained giving her a pointed look. While you might think Im what you want, when you get older
Ill see that I want you even more, she spoke up ravenously reaching out to embrace him again when his gaze lingered over her shoulder to where Ben and Diane stood staring at the both of them. Immediately he stiffened trying to keep cool about the potentially uncomfortable situation that could be ahead of them.
Um, you know on second thought maybe we should go somewhere else, JT cleared his throat uneasily, his gaze still lingering over towards Ben and Diane.
Why? Evie frowned glancing over her own shoulder to see where JT was looking. Immediately her gaze zoomed in on the woman who clearly had captured JTs attention. With a scowl she looked to him again and spoke up in an agitated tone, Who is that?
No one, JT lied trying to ignore the fact that Ben and Diane were no more than twenty feet away from them, I just dont feel like Italian anymore.
Youre such a bad liar, Evie snapped back at him, heavy disapproval weighing in over her. Why dont you just tell me what it is about those two that has you so worked up?
Its nothing, he began to lie again when he noticed something behind her eyes that made him think twice of it. Okay, fine she is someone that I used to know. Something that I used to
To what? Evie arched a curious brow, Date?
Something like that, he nodded in confession, but it went a bit deeper than that. You see Diane is the one that
Before he could finish his statement his pager started to go off. Frowning, he reached for it and spotted the number before him. He looked up again over at Diane before focusing on Evie.
Its the bar. I have to go return the call, he began apologetically seeing that the waiter was walking over to them to tell them that their table was finally ready.
Okay, Evie nodded with a small smile, you go answer that and Ill wait for you at the table.
Evie, I just dont know if he began again clearly uncomfortable with the situation they were now in.
You dont have to know, she promised reaching out to kiss him quickly, because Im as sure as ever that were going to have a great time with one another tonight. You have to just trust me. After all if you want me to trust you, it has to work both ways.
Fair enough, JT nodded opting to give tonights plans another go now that Evie was offering a pep talk. If he could make it through the night being this close to Ben and Diane knowing how theyd taken away his hope for a future, then maybe just maybe there would be a way to keep pushing on after all.
Shes ridiculous, Ria laughed to herself thinking back to
the way that Michelle had approached her and Deana in the mall earlier. Closing
the door behind her, she walked over toward the kitchen setting her purse
down before walking over toward the phone to check who called. All you
have to do is get changed and go over to meet Seth and Kevin. Thats
all that matters right now.
Picking up her purse, Ria walked over toward her bedroom and opened it up slowly seeing nothing but darkness before her. Moving over toward the corner she turned on her lamp and started to unbutton her shirt before her phone started to ring.
Hey baby, Kevins voice echoed through her phone as she answered and smiled widely leaning back against the bed to talk to him for a moment. I miss you so much right now. I got you a present.
You did? Ria chuckled hearing the excitement behind Kevins voice as she bit down on her bottom lip and put her arm behind the pillow. What did you get me then?
Well, why would I tell you on the phone? Kevin questioned with a small laugh taking in a small breath, looking back behind himself to see Seth and Blake talking to each other and he shrugged his shoulders. Id much rather show it to you when we are alone and then you can give me your thanks--perhaps in the bedroom or something like that. I dont know, its your choice.
My choice? Ria sat up slowly sitting on the edge of the bed before reaching out to the picture of her and Kevin together on the edge of her night stand. What makes you think I would thank you in the bedroom.
Well, it doesnt have to be in the bedroom, Kevin teased hearing her laughter behind her voice as he shrugged his shoulders and spoke up in a low rumble. It could be in the kitchen, in the shower, on the couch--its all your choice.
You know what? Im supposed to meet up with you and Seth, Ria pointed out standing up slowly before walking over toward the bathroom to look at herself in the mirror. Ill meet up with you guys in a few and then we can finish this conversation later.
Sounds really, really good, Kevin decided nodding slowly and pushing back his thick dark hair. Kevin turned toward Blake and Seth again knowing that he was somehow going to have to get into the conversation before getting totally pushed out. I love you baby.
I love you too, Ria muttered biting down on her bottom lip before hanging up the phone and holding the phone to her chest, looking at her ring in the mirror proud that she was with Kevin and that everything was going okay. Hes absolutely perfect.
Noticing that she left something in her purse Ria walked back to the bed unzipping it and reaching inside to only realize that she had left the tape in there earlier. Looking down at the tape she walked over toward the garbage with it in her hand, going to throw it away before something inside of her struck an interest.
Lets see what her pathetic try was now, Ria walked over toward the VCR going to put the tape in before realizing there was another one in there. Pulling it out she couldnt help but laugh seeing the name that was printed in over it. Rias favorite.
I cant believe you are making me do this, Kevin muttered stepping out of the bathroom with a towel around his waist seeing her wait for him with a camera in her hand. Honestly, why are you doing this to me? I thought you loved me.
I do love you, Ria laughed moving the camera down a moment seeing Kevin look down toward the ground nervously for a minute before his brown eyes met hers. Im wearing this for you, so you should like it.
Youre in a skirt and red tank top, Kevin groaned seeing the way she laughed at him and raised the camera back up toward him as he smiled and shook his head slowly. Fine, you wanted to see these. Then Ill let you see them.
Tugging his towel away from his waist he stood before her, dropping the towel to the ground and resting his hands at his side. Seeing her smile and move the camera in to pan in over his body Kevin let out a small laugh.
Got a thing for spandex? Kevin looked down at the dark red briefs costume that she had him in and he let out a small laugh. Moving over toward the corner of the room Kevin took a seat in the chair leaning back and seeing her pan the camera over him slowly. Its a little weird Ria.
Its not that weird, Ria tried to assure him setting the video camera down on the television towards Kevin before walking over toward him slowly. Moving in behind him she started to caress his bare chest slowly, hearing him inhale deeply. Do you think its really that weird.
Depends, Kevin muttered seeing her walk in front of him and move her legs in over his leg taking a seat on his knee gently, caressing his shoulders slowly. I think if it goes further, it would be so far from weird.
You have problems Kevin, she whispered moving forward and pressing her lips up against his, feeling him heat up to her kisses and start to kiss her more desperately.
A small gasp escaped her lips as she felt Kevin grab a hold of her leg and pull her in over him fully, her hips in over his as his right arm wrapped around her waist and his left hand pressed in over the back of her neck as they kissed.
That was a great day, Ria smiled to herself holding onto the tape and setting it down on the bed slowly before putting in Michelles tape and staring out at the picture before her. Seeing nothing weird about it she grabbed the remote and pushed fast forward, about to give up on what was going on as she noticed two familiar faces. A small gasp escaped her lips as she dropped the remote to the ground and she covered her hand over her mouth carefully after seeing something that shocked her. No.
Diane, Ben tried to recapture her attention, but it was clear
that she was obviously in another place now that theyd been seated across
the restaurant from JT and his date. Frowning he waved his hand in front of
her face to recapture her attention once again, hey are you listening?
What? Diane snapped back into the moment turning her full attention to Ben once again. Oh Im sorry. I just cant believe the nerve of that jerk. I mean who the hell does he think he is prancing around town like hes better than the rest of us? Hes such a self centered prick and the last thing he should be doing is harassing us while we are out. You know Ill bet that he called to find out we were having dinner here and then he decided to stalk us just so that you and I couldnt have a good time while we were out.
You know on most days I would fully agree with you on this one, but today, Ben glanced over at JT seeing that JT was clearly busy talking with his date, well maybe it was just coincidence.
With JT its never a coincidence, Diane huffed setting her napkin in her lap and getting up from her seat.
Where are you going? Ben couldnt help but ask giving her a strange look.
Im going to take a trip to the ladies room to powder my nose and then when I get back Im going to ignore the fact that troll is here trying to upset us, she announced spinning on her heel and making a beeline for the ladies room.
During the walk she could practically feel JTs eyes on her, but then again she hadnt expected anything less when shed gotten up from the table. It had been blatantly obvious from the moment shed walked into the restaurant that JT was clearly stalking her and now his watching her only further proved that belief she had. She tossed her long hair over her shoulder before going into the ladies room to take a look at her appearance. While she couldnt be bothered with JT, just the fact that he was clearly still obsessed with her made her blood boil.
Get a grip, Diane told her reflection reaching into her purse to pull out a lipstick, but just before she could press some more color onto her lips, she felt a firm shove from behind her causing her to gasp while the tip of her lipstick smeared all over the side of her face.
What in the ? Diane mouthed shuffling to her feet again only to discover JTs brunette companion glaring over at her. Diane stood up taller, a huff falling from her lips as she looked at her face again, Whats wrong with you?
Listen you, Evie waved her finger in Dianes face with heavy agitation, I dont know what your game is with JT, but back off. Hes not interested in you or anything you have to offer. Hes moved on.
Diane chuckled with heavy laughter giving Evie a long once over. Oh thats rich, she continued to chuckle at Evie, and just what are you, his bodyguard now?
In case you havent noticed, Evie spoke up in a warning tone, her long, dark hair framing the darkness behind her eyes, hes moved on, so leave him alone.
Anyone with eyes can see hes far from moving on, Diane taunted reaching for some tissue to try to wipe off the lipstick that covered her cheek, Face it sweetheart regardless of whatever possessed you to think you could come in here and tell me all about JT, the fact to the matter is that hes always been obsessed with me and hes always going to be. Youre just some cheap fling because Im not willing to give him the time of day.
JT doesnt need you messing up his life, Evie snarled at her, her voice laced with heavy distain, Now I dont know what kind of hold you think it is that you have on him, but the fact to the matter is that you dont. He doesnt want you bothering him and neither do I. Do I make myself clear?
Diane stepped forward and laughed right in Evies face, Do you really think Im going to take orders from a little slut like you? I mean honestly, who the hell do you think you are?
Someone who can make you very miserable if you dont leave JT alone, Evie warned sharply, her voice straight to the point.
Oh Im so terrified, Diane feigned concern raising her hands in the air in front of her with sarcastic intent before shoving Evie in the shoulder, Just step off bitch because the last thing I need to be is bothered by pathetic little girls like you just because your boyfriend doesnt know when to give up and get over me.
Oh hes more than over you, Evie hissed in response reaching out to shove Diane again.
Dont you touch me you bitch, Diane moved forward knocking Evie back with a determined push. Evie smacked into the wall and Diane let out a laugh wiping at her hands, Now if youll excuse me.
Not so fast, Evie leapt forward reaching out to stop Diane before she could walk away. She felt Diane spin around to push her again, but this time Evie caught Dianes arm and prevented her from making the movement.
Let go of me, or else, Diane warned, her eyes narrowing down at Evie.
Or else what? Evie taunted mocking Dianes earlier tone. What am I supposed to be afraid of a has been like you who cant accept that JT has found someone better? I could see all night that you cant keep your eyes off of him.
Wrong sister. He cant keep his eyes off of me and thats because he knows that Im the best hes ever had and the best hell ever get, Diane moved to hit Evie, sending her free arm right down into Evies abdomen punching her with a firm movement, the fact that hes hanging out with bargain basement tramps like you more than proves it.
Evie buckled over in agony before letting out a low groan. She saw Diane wiping at her face again and with a high pitched wail, Evie sprung forward plowing into Diane and sending her back into one of the stalls. Diane fell onto the toilet, but kicked her foot up to jab Evie in the face with the side of her high heel. Evie hissed before reaching out for Dianes hair and yanking her up off of the toilet. Before Diane could get another jab in, Evie lifted the lid of the toilet bowl and sent Diane into it face first.
You bitch Diane gurgled feeling Evie pull her head up ever so slightly before dunking it into the toilet water again.
Stay away from JT! Evie warned pushing Diane underneath the waters surface again before reaching out to flush the toilet. She stepped back hearing Diane squeal with astonishment as she popped up from the front of the toilet. She could hear Diane muttering various curses, but rather than sticking around any longer, she took a step back and spoke up one last time, Dont make me tell you twice.
Diane huffed, turning around to see the door to the ladies room swinging shut. She clenched her fists at her sides for a moment before feeling her damp hair stick to her face. Groaning she reached out to push her own dark hair from her eyes as she wondered who the hell JTs newest psychotic plaything was as it was clear that she was even more insane than JT had ever been and that could only mean one thing--trouble!
JT walked back over to the back of the restaurant looking around for Evie
after hed gone to pay their bill. Hed told her hed only
be gone for a moment, but when he returned to the table, hed found that
shed not only up and disappeared, but that shed left her purse
behind. Hed picked up her purse and assumed that she was in the ladies
room. Deciding that he would wait for her, JT had started to move over to
this part of the restaurant, but as he spotted Ben approaching, he realized
that maybe it wasnt such a good idea.
What are you doing? Ben demanded his voice tight with obvious animosity and distrust.
Waiting for my date, JT replied with a bored expression glancing over to the bathroom door again.
The hell you are, Ben stepped forward, his eyes narrowing at his adversary, Maybe you havent gotten a clue yet, but the fact to the matter is that Diane doesnt want to have anything to do with you. Youve already caused her enough grief
You mean by getting her pregnant with my baby? JT countered, his jaw clenched with a moment of anger and remorse, The baby that you both worked to eliminate?
Ben didnt say anything, but as JT looked at him, he could see that Bens eyes said it all.
Yeah thats what I thought, JT shook his head feeling a newfound anger bubbling up inside of him, You knew all along that baby was mine and thats why you worked so hard to keep me away from Diane. You knew full well that I had a right to my child, but you both stole that from me.
You had no business being in her life in the first place, Ben countered finally regaining his words, She loves me JT, not you. The only reason you were able to manipulate her was because she was drunk and upset. You knew full well what you were doing when you took advantage.
Ive never taken advantage of Diane. She knows what she wants and when shes hot and bothered, she always wants me, JT mouthed with an icy grin feeling empowered by the way his words bothered Ben, Shes always been that way pal and regardless of how she dresses herself up and tries to play the good girl, the bad girl in her always wants to come out and play. Thats what she really is and when shes ready to face that, shell find her way back to me.
Dont bet on it, Ben mouthed with a glare, Diane doesnt want you bothering her and neither do I.
Well then I guess its fortunate for the both of you that Ive had an epiphany that lets me see that I wouldnt want to waste my time associating with either one of you losers, JT motioned to the door of the ladies room once again, which is why Ive moved up in the world to someone who puts Diane to shame.
As if I almost believe that, Ben opened his mouth to say something more when Evie emerged from the bathroom and made her way over to JT to wrap her arm in his possessively.
Lets get out of this dump, Evie leaned into him before glaring over at Ben, they seem to be collecting a lot of trash here.
I couldnt agree more, JT placed his arm around Evies waist protectively before pushing past Ben and leading her out of the restaurant.
Yeah, you keep walking on, Ben called out after him, still angry at what JT had said about Diane. Ben couldnt help but feel a nagging feeling in the pit of his stomach over the idea that maybe just maybe Diane still had some lingering feelings for JT.
While Ben hadnt told her about the baby being JTs, he could also see that the two of them had some strange hold on one another. Then again maybe he was only imagining it because Diane had been in an uproar lately over Andy being back in town. With Andy came another whole new world of secrets from Diane and that left Ben feeling that there was even more trouble ahead--trouble that went beyond whatever it was that Diane had once upon a time with JT.
I cant believe the nerve of that little tramp, Diane squealed stepping out of the ladies room to reveal her tangled, wet hair to Ben. She hissed as her fists sank into her sides.
What happened to you? Ben frowned seeing the woman he loved in an uproar.
Ill tell you what happened, Diane blurted out with malicious intent. That woman just started a war that shes not going to win. Shes going down!
So I cant believe he had the nerve to throw me out, Shannon
huffed waving her hands around in the air emphatically. She looked to Dean
before scowling once again, I mean what nerve? Why would he think he
could just throw me out when its clear that Im the one who wanted
to get rid of him?
I think its clear that you need to sober up, Deidra mouthed with a look of heavy disapproval, I mean really what kind of person would want to put up with you in this kind of state.
Watch it or else I might take offense, Shannon slurred glaring over at Deidra as Dean intervened.
Deidra, why dont you just let me take care of this one, Deana suggested throwing a pleading look over at the woman he loved. Seeing her get up off of the couch shed been previously seated at, Dean watched Deidra leave the room before he turned his focus to Shannon once again.
You know you should really do something about her, Shannon frowned over at him, She really gives me reason to want to strangle her.
Hey, you were the one who showed up on my doorstep and ruined my romantic night with her, Dean pointed out with a small frown, The least you can do is try to get along with her especially considering that she has plenty of reason to be upset right now.
Yeah well I think I have even more of a right to be upset, Shannon pouted sinking further onto the couch, Not only did I find my husband with another woman, but then he has the audacity to throw me out. Me of all people!
Wait a second, Dean frowned back at her taking in what she was saying all over again, You say you saw Don with someone else?
She nodded again, Thats right. He was with some tramp at the hospital and she was all over him. Ive seen her a few times in the past, but I paid no attention to her. She was just some perky young blonde that clearly he was more than interested in.
Okay, I have to intervene, Deidra stepped in from her place across the room where shed been trying to cool down away from Shannon. First of all I have known Don almost all my life and when hes serious about someone cheating is the last thing on his mind.
Obviously you dont know him as well as you think you do, Shannon glared over at her, because I know what I saw.
And I think you were wrong. Don isnt like that, Deidra defended her friend, In fact Im willing to bet that you were mistaken. Don is a very friendly person and yes some people might think that is flirting, but its just the way Don is. Hes a good guy who doesnt cheat.
Did I ask you for your opinion? Shannon sneered over at her anger running through her veins.
Maybe if you had you wouldnt be here right now wondering why Don threw you out. Youd probably be at home with him having a nice evening if you had thought to ask someones advice, Deidra folded her arms in front of her chest. After having had a husband who was a cheater, I know what to look for and what not to. Top that off with the fact that Don has to be the most loyal, dedicated, romantic man in the world and Id have to say that you clearly have your signals all wrong about him. I know he loves you Shannon and if you wouldve talked to him, which Im assuming that you didnt simply because you already had it in your mind that you were going to go nuts on him, then maybe just maybe you mightve found that you were wrong.
What would you know, Shannon snarled back at her, Come to think of it, I dont think you know anything. You didnt see Don with that woman or with the one Brants been spending time with
If shes Brants girlfriend then you dont have a thing to worry about, Deidra rolled her eyes at Shannon, Dons his best friend and he would never, ever hurt Brant like that.
Yeah well if youre such an expert on my husband, why dont you go marry him and stop giving me a headache, Shannon suggested bringing her hands up over her head. A groan overtook her and she turned a pale shade of green before sprinting up off of the couch and rushing to the bathroom. She slammed the door behind her leaving nothing to the imagination as she got sick in Deans bathroom.
Dean exchanged glanced with Deidra before offering up an apologetic expression, Im really sorry about this.
So am I, Deidra sighed wondering how in the world she was unfortunate enough to have found herself sharing this night with a foul mouthed Shannon who was clearly drunk beyond comprehension. Oh yes, tonight was most certainly going down hill faster by the moment and as she heard Shannon getting sick again she knew full well it was going to be a very long night!
You sure youre feeling up to this, Brant questioned seeing
his best friend setting things up for the impromptu ultrasound hed put
together for Brant and Angela. Angela lay on the table beside Brant, her worried
gaze still settling in on Don.
Hey, your sexy lady there checked this mess out, Don pointed to the top of his head, and all things were clear.
Even so you dont have to do this Don, Angela offered up seeing him move in on the other side of her.
Nonsense, if nothing else youll learn that I like to know everything, Don teased with a small wink, and right now I want to see if Brant and I are going to be shopping for a lot of pink or blue things.
Ill take either one, Brant added reaching for Angelas hand, What about you? What are you hoping for?
Honestly a pregnancy that wont end in disaster, she admitted feeling a moment of worry crossing over her. She looked over at Don for a moment before turning to Brant again.
You know I think Ill be right back, Don piped in taking a step back and opting to give the two of them a moment. Ill just go get that thing
Right, Brant nodded knowing full well what his friend was doing. Reaching for Angelas hand again, he brought it to his lips and issued her soft skin a tender kiss, Hey you dont have a thing to worry about. You know that, right?
I know, but its easier not to focus on all of this when Im distracted with other things, she confessed a hint of nervousness in her voice. She squeezed his hand gently before looking to the floor, I mean we should really try to get Don back to the mansion so that he can rest and
And youre doing it again, Brant interrupted her reaching out to touch her cheek gently, Youre trying to take the focus off of you so that I wont see whats really bothering you.
Brant its just she bit down on her lower lip in a nervous movement, I just I dont want to get my hopes all up only to find out that something will go wrong.
Nothings going to go wrong, Brant assured her with a small smile, his finger brushing up against hers now that she wore his ring proudly on it, Were going to get married and have two perfect, wonderful children and everything is going to be like you see in the movies.
God I hope not, Angela groaned inwardly, especially considering that the last movie I saw was a horror movie.
Hmm, well the last one I saw was a porn, so you know Brant teased feeling her reach out to slap his shoulder lightly.
Youre such a goof, she shook her head at him, an involuntary laugh spilling over her previously worried features, but for what its worth I think its part of what I love about you.
Im hoping that theres a lot more going on there for me, he mouthed seeing her nerves settling a bit, I mean after all I dont think our children are going to be old enough to appreciate my dirty jokes. Then again I think I may have to cut back on them given that they arent really appropriate for a father when
She reached out to place her hand over his mouth to silence him, Dont you dare change who you are because I happen to love you for the man that you are.
I love you too, Brant leaned forward kissing her tenderly as there was a knock on the door indicating that Don had waited just long enough for them to have a moment together.
You two ready? Don wiggled his brow curiously making his way into the room with them. So tell me, are we ready to see what is going to give Brant plenty of reason to worry for the next thirty plus years?
As long as my children dont turn out like you and I were I think Im going to be just fine, Brant explained with a small laugh before looking to Don again, Hopefully history wont repeat itself.
God I hope not otherwise Im sure Angela is going to want to murder the both of us, Don feigned a shudder before leaning forward to whisper to Angela, You should see this one home video we made back in college when
Hey, can we just get with the ultrasound, Brant snapped his fingers to keep Don from taking the conversation in a new direction that he was sure he didnt want to go in.
If you insist, Don winked over at Angela, Ill have to show you that tape later.
I cant wait, Angela smiled over at Don before focusing on Brant, I might see a whole new side of you after all.
Im pretty sure youve seen every side there is already, Brant reminded her with a sexy, mischievous grin.
And I like every single part of it, Angela squeezed his hand lightly while Don moved forward and began to prepare the ultrasound.
Now we know that this isnt an exact science there given that there are times when people can be wrong about the sex of the baby or the babies in this case, but Don began the ultrasound looking to the screen next to Brant, hopefully the little ones wont be cryptic or impossible like their father can be at times.
Hey watch it or else Brant waved his hand in the air, but he was stopped by the first sounds of the ultrasound. Within a matter of seconds, he found himself surrounded by the very strong rhythm of his childrens hearts beating. His brown eyes grew wide and he looked over to the screen seeing a blurred image in front of him, Is that ?
It looks like the babies are making their onscreen debut, Don noted encouragingly, a bright smile on his face as the image grew a bit more clearer. He couldnt help but find himself overcome by the moment upon seeing his best friends unborn children moving around inside their mother.
I told you they were active today, Angela mouthed squeezing Brants hand as there was movement on the screen in front of them.
I dont believe this, Brant found himself mesmerize by the images in front of him. This is just so
Incredible, Don finished for him taking a good look at the image in front of him, and if I had to take a guess I would say that youre going to have a very strong, very active little boy on your hands there.
A boy, Brants eyes widened at what his friend had said. He looked to Don again and grinned, really?
Thats right, Don nodded pointing to the screen again, youve got yourself a very active little man right here.
Were having boys, Brant reached out to hug Angela in his arms, Im going to have sons. Were going to have two very happy, healthy boys keeping us on our toes and
Correction, Don interrupted once again, Youre not only having a son, but it looks like youre going to have a daughter as well.
Brant looked to the image again seeing a glimpse of his second child and he found himself lost in a moment of silence. He sank back into the chair finding himself completely mesmerized by what he saw before him.
A boy and a girl? Angela questioned surprised by the revelation herself.
Thats right, so I guess that means blue and pink for all of us, Don explained matter of fact before motioning to the screen again, I can get you a home video of this if youd like. That way youll have this on film forever and always.
Could you really? Brant asked eagerly, finding himself beyond excited about what this would mean for them. He reached out to touch Angelas face lovingly, Do you hear that? Were having a little boy and a little girl?
So we are, she smiled unable to mask her own emotions. Brant I know that weve both been aware that were really going to be parents, but now
It just makes it all the more incredible, Brant finished leaning forward to kiss her tenderly, I love you so much.
I love you, she confessed kissing him in response realizing that now there was something more substantial in knowing that they were really going to be parents. Before it had been a thought, but after today it was becoming an even greater reality for them--one that left only promising things ahead for them.
I promise you Im going to be a good husband and father to these two and I swear to you were going to have it all together, Brant continued seeing his best friend over in the corner in the room, This is one of the happiest days of my life and we owe that to you.
Stop, Don waved his hand dismissively, I didnt do anything really.
You just let me know that Im going to have two beautiful, precious babies here soon--a son and a daughter with the woman I love and I couldnt ask for more, Brant explained proudly wrapping his arm around Angelas shoulders. For the first time in my life I can honestly say that I feel like everything is as it should be.
Me too, Angela agreed with him lacing her fingers in his as it seemed that everything was turning around in both of their lives in the right direction for a change.
Are you sure you are okay with me coming here? Drew asked as
Sarah walked into the elevator with him and he eyed her over slowly with his
blue eyes. Seeing her smile over at him, he offered up a small smile of his
own before looking at the number she pushed. I know that your friends
seemed a little upset with you staying with me like that. That big guy especially.
I think he was ticked because you called him that name, Sarah pointed out with a small laugh, realizing that--yeah, she would probably prefer to have Kevin with her right now, but Drew would do. My friends dont run my life so I wouldnt worry about it if I were you. Everything will go by smoothly. Everything is okay and there is nothing to worry about.
Alright, if you say so, Drew began with a small smile as Sarah stepped off the elevator and he pushed his long dark hair, following her down the hallway as he looked back behind him slowly. I just dont want you making any kind of mistakes. I want you to do something because you want to. Not because I am making you do something.
Dont worry about it, Sarah muttered looking back at Drew over her shoulder before winking at him. Pulling her purse out in front of her, she started to pull out her key before feeling him step in behind her and press his lips in over her shoulder softly. Im doing what I want to be doing tonight.
Thats good, Drew decided as she opened the room to the hotel and he followed her in slowly. Seeing her move forward toward him, he backed up slowly only to feel her push him back against the bed. Thats very, very good.
Im glad you think so, Sarah moved in over Drew resting her hips in over his before moving down to press her lips in over his neck, feeling his hands press in over her hips to help her grind into him. All I want to do is have some fun tonight and if they were here, that would never, ever happen.
I believe you, Drew whispered lightly feeling her fingers pulling apart the buttons of his shirt before pulling it off his arms and throwing it to the side. Feeling her fingertips move in over his abdomen Drew let out a small gasp. Wait, hold on a second.
What is it? Sarah frowned seeing him get up and push back his long hair and move over toward his shirt that she threw over by the plant. Is something wrong? I dont understand. Are you leaving?
No, Im not leaving, Drew smiled back at her as he bent down over his shirt and motioned her to wait a second. Reaching into his pocket he pulled out something really quick, moving over toward the side to make sure that Sarah couldnt see him clearly. Pushing it into the plant quickly Drew smiled widely before pulling something else out of his pocket. I just needed one of these.
Right, Sarah smiled nodding slowly seeing Drew hold up a condom before walking back over toward the bed and getting in over her. You are very smart I hope you know.
Oh, I know Im smart, Drew smiled widely pressing his lips in over the side of her neck, taking the time to stare out over towards the plant he had tinkered with earlier. Smiling widely he couldnt help but play into this further. What Im doing tonight with you, will change your life forever. You wont even see it coming.
Im sure I will, Sarah gently bit at his skin hearing him let out small hiss before moving back and resting against his knees, slowly pulling down the zipper in his jeans. Im pretty sure I will.
Oh, Drew shook his head slowly reaching out to push back her hair as he felt her tug down his jeans slowly and he let out small laugh. You wont know what hit you until it really does.
Moving into the empty building, Kyle noticed the darkness all around him
as he moved forward and bumped into something making him let out a small groan.
This is crazy, Kyle repeated to himself as he walked through the hallways, bumping into another wall as he let out a small hiss pulling out his cell phone knowing that if he was going to do this right he shouldnt knock himself out. I have to do this though.
Opening his cell phone, he used the dim light to find the right way to go as a wide smile spread out over his features and he moved forward looking for where the person had made plans to meet him.
Where in the world are you? Kyle questioned reaching his destination and looking around slowly before taking in a deep breath. Turning his cell phone toward him he noted that time was just right which meant the other person was late. Where the hell are you?
A light flickered on as Kyle quickly turned around to see the person that he was planning on meeting standing with a camera in their hands.
You scared the hell out of me, Kyle pointed out seeing their blue eyes meet his and they shrugged their shoulders. Moving over toward the corner of the room Kyle started to take off his jacket and motioned over toward the windows. This was the perfect place to do it--when no body is here.
I know, the person boasted proudly seeing Kyle set his jacket down on the ground and move over toward the window sill taking a seat on it before looking out the window. Are you ready for this?
More ready than I will ever be in my whole life, Kyle answered seeing them smile widely and put the recorder up to their eyes to get the right positioning of Kyle sitting there. This had to happen, this had to go on because if it didnt, he just might lose everything that ever mattered to him. I have a little announcement to make.
...to be continued...
