Chapter 13: Happy Birthday

The day of the party Missy sighed going through her closet. Julie rolled her eyes from Missy's bed.

"Miss, you could go in shrink wrap and he'd still be thrilled," Julie groaned, Missy looked at her. "I'm serious, I think you should try it."

"Don't you have to go hang a piƱata or something?" Missy sighed, "You're not being helpful."

"Fine," Julie said and stood up, "I'll see you later." Missy sighed as she walked out and then smiled, her hand landing on a sexy black miniskirt she'd bought once last year in an attempt to attract Brett's attention after the first time they'd hooked up. It had worked, he'd slid his hand right up the skirt. Maybe it would have the same effect on Charlie. She grabbed a nothing slinky tank top, a pair of knee high fishnets and her Doc Martins. She wanted him to want her, badly, as badly as she wanted him.

Missy looked around the room, when she got into Linda's house, which was, no surprise. It was perfect and clean and preppy, even with the pretty wild party going on. Then she saw him. As usual he was in the middle, being buzzed around, making people laugh. And then she noticed it, he had his arm wrapped around some girl. She walked over anyway.

"Missy!" He smiled and hugged her, "You made it."

"Yeah," She nodded, "It's your birthday, I wouldn't miss this."

"Um, do you know Leah," He said. Leah smiled angrily.

"Nice to meet you," Missy said, "I'm gonna go get a drink," She pointed and walked away.

"Heartbreak finds little Missy again," She heard a voice from behind her as she helped herself to the punch bowl, she sniffed it, spiked excellent, she turned around and saw Brett, "I warned you."

"You were right," She said, "Do you want a parade?"

"You know what I want Miss," He whispered and brushed her bangs to the side. "You don't belong with a guy like that. You belong with me." He cupped her face and then kissed her. Moments like this were why she fell for him in the first place.

"Brett," She whimpered, "Take me upstairs." He smiled and took her hand leading her through the crowd. She made quick eye contact with Charlie, but looked away even faster pushing her hair behind her ears, she did notice the look of confusion on his face. Once they found an open bedroom, he pulled the door shut and kissed her again. She pulled her shirt off.

"I love that don't waste time baby," He smirked and kissed her neck, and pushed her under him on the bed. She wasn't saying anything, she wasn't even paying much attention, she didn't care what he was doing to her, he stopped for a second. "Do you wanna take something?"

"No," She shook her head and kissed him, she didn't need drugs, she was numb enough. She done it with him on drugs before of course, but that was when she wanted it heightened, she didn't want to feel this. "Just fuck me." He kissed her and groped down to her bottom half and lifted her skirt.

"Mm, the thigh highs," He smirked, "Nice touch," She kissed him.

"Shut up," She said, "I just want to do it."

"God, cheating on you was the worst mistake I ever made," He murmured, "And I bet us doing this is driving your little boyfriend insane."

"Well, that is the point," She kissed him and nibbled on his ear. "Now shut up." He kissed her.

"Are you in love with him," He kissed her. "Do you do things for him like you did for me? Do you get rowdy at his hockey games to turn him on, the way you used to dance in the front row of my shows?" He kissed her. "You were so hot." They kissed each other

"Do you want to talk about Charlie?" She sighed, "Does he get you hot?"

"Stealing you from him gets me hot," He whispered. She stopped. "What's wrong?"

"I can't do this," She shook her head.

"It's too late now baby," He kissed her neck, "I'm already going."

"Brett, please," She whimpered and pushed him. He pushed her down.

"None of your bullshit tonight Missy," He said. "I'll wear you down."

"No," She squirmed, and started to cry, she pushed harder getting him up off of her. She stood up quickly grabbing her shirt and pulling it on over her head. What had she been thinking? Coming to this party? That Charlie wanted her? Trying to get to him by sleeping with Brett? She couldn't stop crying and walked downstairs.

"Missy!" Charlie said, "What the hell?"

"Don't look at me Charlie please!" She shook her head and ran outside.

"Missy!" He ran after her, "Come on, what's happening with you?"

"I don't know," She shook her head, "But I don't belong here, I knew that, and I saw you with that girl, and I realized that."

"So you go have sex with Brett?" He asked, "Jesus, are you trying to kill me?"

"I didn't have sex with him," She shook her head, "I couldn't." He looked at her and stepped closer.

"Why not?" He asked.

"Because I think I'm in love with you," She whispered. He cupped her face and kissed her. "Charlie." He shook his head and kissed her again.

"You're not talking your way out of it this time Cailing," He smiled. She laughed.

"I can't go back in there," She said.

"Ok," He smiled, "We'll go."

"But it's your birthday party," She said, "You can't just."

"I want to be with you," He said, she smiled, he kissed her again. "So wherever you wanna be, that's where I wanna be."

"Did Charlie just bail on his own birthday party?" Julie said.

"I think it's Missy," Linda said rolling her eyes. Julie looked at her. "What?"

"Nothing," Julie shook her head.

"I'm not jealous!" Linda said.

"Uh huh," Julie said, "I know sweetie."

"I'm not," She said, "I just think it's rude." Julie raised her eyebrows.

"This is really where you want to go huh?" Charlie asked as Missy lead him into her dorm room. She kissed him.

"Happy Birthday," She whispered seductively and pushed him onto the bed. He smiled as she then straddled him and kissed him hard. He loved Missy's bad girl side, which was out in full tonight. As her hands rested on his neck and they kissed, he slid his down and fingered the top of her tights and pushed them down. She moaned as he kissed across her chest.

"Can I call you my girlfriend now?" He whispered in her ear and then nibbled on it.

"You can call me whatever you want," She groaned breathily. Why was he teasing her? Couldn't he see how badly she wanted him? She moved her hand down and undid his fly, he fumbled up her skirt removing her panties. She writhed a little bit, they both shifted and he was inside her. She moaned happily. She liked that they weren't naked, that they weren't pushing into each other and scratching and fighting like the last time. Last time he'd fucked her, this time they were making love. "Oh Charlie, Charlie," She threw her head back.

"God I love you Missy," He mumbled. She whimpered. When they finished he looked at her laying next to him. "So um, we're friends right?"

"You're such a dick," She rolled her eyes. He kissed her, "Charlie, I love you." She mumbled.

"I love you too," He said, "Missy, I didn't think that I was ever going to get better, after,"

"I kow," She smiled, "Me neither. I think that's why we found each other." He smiled and they kissed again.

"Happy Birthday to me," He laughed. She rolled her eyes.
