6. Trouble (tw)Inn
The young lovers emerged from the toilets and made their way back to their seats. "Have fun kids?" Cook asked with a glint in his eye.
"Holy-moley, surf and turf." Panda wondered.
"Thirsty." Emily said. "Really really…"
Suddenly a bloody nosed Freddie came crashing backwards into the table, cards went flying, and drinks were spilled everywhere. Tommo and Cook stood up, ready to fight for their friend. "You're gonna fucking pay for this." Cook shouted as a mass brawl broke out. JJ put his head in his hands and managed to seek refuge behind the bar. Pandora hid under a table and Effy having been thrown onto the stage started to soak everybody with a fire extinguisher.
Katie, practically oblivious to the ruckus going on around her, had her own issues to voice. She grabbed hold of her sister. "I can't believe you."
"What?" Emily asked, dodging a flying bottle.
"I just came to the toilets to find you."
"I heard you. What the fuck, Em?"
"I heard the two of you! I was right outside. And she was all moaning and shit."
"Yeah she was." Emily teased. "I had my head between her legs!"
"Jesus, do you have to."
"What exactly is your problem this time Katie? I thought we'd sorted this out?"
Katie pulled at her sister.
"We all know you're a fucking lesbian now, but do you have to go parading it around, like her." She spat venomously.
"That 'her' is my girlfriend Katie. Show a little respect." Emily said pushing the other twin away.
"You show a little respect. Fucking that lezza in the toilets so everyone knew what you were doing. Disgusting."
"Katie, I thought you were over this?" Emily pushed her sister away as tears began to well up in her eyes.
"Katie, KATIE." Naomi interjected. Pulling the twins apart. "First, I am not Gay. Comprende? ME NO LESBIAN. Second, my NAME is Naomi, not 'lezza' or 'her'. And third, ME IN LOVE with your sister."
Emily grabbed her girlfriend and kissed her. Amongst the mayhem and the fire alarm, and the extinguisher spray, all she could see were the blonde's beautiful blue eyes. "I LOVE YOU!" The twin shouted over the din.
Naomi broke from their embrace and winked at Katie. "C'mon. Find JJ, Lets get out of here." Naomi said loudly. "You too, Katiekins!"
"The police are comin'. We gotta go!" Panda exclaimed as she was whisked away by Thomas. "Not this way, police are here. Up stairs! Up stairs!" He said, ushering everyone past him.
The gang jumped off the roof of the pub and ran into the night. They came to a stop a mile away, safely away from the police sirens.
"Fucking eventful." Emily wheezed.
"Free drinks. Can't complain." Naomi said, taking her girlfriend's hand.
"JJ was right."
As the gang dispersed into the night Katie, Emily and Naomi were left in the darkness.
"Katie I…" Emily began.
"I'm sorry, ok." The other twin tried.
Naomi sat on the curb, she had so much to say, she wanted to kill Katie for upsetting her girlfriend, but she bit her lip, knowing that it would only make things worse.
"Katie we sat in our room, you said it was ok. You held me…"
"I don't know, Ems…I'm sorry."
"Sorry's not good enough this time…I wont hide my feelings anymore."
"It's not you, ok. I was fucked off with Freddie, fucked off with Effy, fucked off with everything. Did you see him with that slapper in the leopard print?"
"What?" Emily asked bemused.
"Freddie. He's a fucking whore."
Naomi fought to control a snigger, and lit a cigarette.
"Jesus, Katie…" Emily began. "I've lost count of the nights I waited for you, gone to a party for you, done things for you, just so you can get fucking laid…"
"I'm sorry. I don't hate you, I don't hate…" The twin looked at the blonde sat on the curb. "Naomi." She said.
"I've never asked for anything…Tolerance Katie. Is that too much?"
"Jesus. I fucking…I tolerate you!" Katie said, trying to appease her sister.
Emily stood back while tears welled up in her eyes again.
"You should fucking hear yourself." Naomi interjected, unable to bite her tongue any longer. Both twins turned and scowled at her. "Ok, ok." She flapped her arm and took a drag of her cigarette. "I'm quiet."
"You tolerate me Katie? Thank you, you're so kind."
"No…I…I am happy for you." The older twin tried.
"Are you? Just try, ok. Try."
Katie sat down on the curb and turned to Naomi. "Can I have a cigarette?" The blonde responded by throwing her packet at the redhead.
"You don't smoke." Emily huffed.
"The lighter's inside."
"Thanks." Katie smiled.
Emily took the cigarettes off her sister, passed them back to her girlfriend and sat down between the other two. She placed her hand on the blonde's knee and rubbed it affectionately.
"You make a cute couple." Katie offered, taking a drag.
Emily put her head in her hands and sighed. "For as long as I can remember, all I've wanted is to find the courage to tell you that I'm gay, to have you accept it. To have you hold me and tell me that it's going to be all right. You're my twin and I wanted you to understand…"
"You don't. All you see is boys. That's all you've ever seen. You trample on me to get to them. Jesus. It's ironic, isn't it? You don't have a problem with me being gay. You just think this makes me more interesting! In the park today and in the pub, how could I not see that? You're fucking jealous."
"Katie…just fucking admit it so we can move on."
"I'm not the Jealous one!"
"Yeah, then why are you behaving like such a twat then?"
"I'm not fucking jealous!" Katie said as she stood up. She turned back to her sister and groaned. "Jesus, Emily, you make me so mad sometimes." Emily looked up at her sister. "Why Katie, why do I make you mad?"
Katie looked between the couple sitting on the curb, she opened her mouth, but paused before she spoke and began to sob uncontrollably. "What if…What if they're thinking of you when they're in bed with me?"
"Jesus…" Naomi began, before wincing at the sharp elbow in the ribs from Emily.
"You realise you're being paranoid."
"Delusional." The blonde coughed, inaudibly.
"Freddie wanted Effy, and he probably fucked that slapper. Cook…did you see the way he looked at you. It was…"
"He's just Cook..."
Emily stood up and wrapped her arms around her sister. " You made a couple of bad choices…It's not the end of the world."
"Isn't it?" Katie floundered. "You've got…someone, it's easy for you to say."
"Yeah. Right." The younger twin scoffed. "You really don't know me at all."
The twins held each other for a moment before Naomi got up and dusted her skirt down. "We should get out of here. It's fucking cold, and my hangover is kicking in."
"Katie." Emily said, wiping the tears from her sister's eyes. "I'm not coming home with you."
"I know." She sniffed. "I'll cover for you."
a/n: Thanks for the great reviews, I really enjoyed reading them. Whizzer! I struggled with the last bit: the twins' argument. The way I see it is that Katie is constantly projecting her own fears onto Emily and they come out as world of bitchiness, especially as Emily grows more confident. But ultimately Emily will always forgive her sister, and then she falls harder when she gets bitch slapped again. Anyway, what do you think?
