"You'd be back with Olivia," Casey said. As soon as the words left her mouth she wanted to kick herself.
Alex pushed Casey away from her. "How many times do I have to tell you? I'm not going to take Olivia back."
She left the kitchen and went into the bathroom. After a few moments, Casey heard the shower running. She sighed. "Way to go Casey," she said to herself.
Casey stood in the kitchen drinking her coffee when Alex's phone vibrated across the counter. It vibrated twice then stopped. Casey looked at the bathroom door then at the cell phone. She was curious. She picked up the phone, just to see who it was from. She groaned when she saw it was from Olivia.
Casey's mind was now fighting a battle with itself. She could set the phone down and pretend that she hadn't seen anything or she could just take a peek at it. It wasn't that she didn't trust Alex when she said she wasn't going to be with Olivia or that she didn't trust Olivia to keep her hands of Alex. The problem was the fact that they had been together before. They both still had feelings for each other and if not for Casey, they'd probably be together.
Against what was probably better judgment, Casey scrolled down to View Now and pushed OK.
"Hey Alex, I had fun last night. Hope I didn't get you into too much trouble with Casey." The message read.
Casey laughed sarcastically to herself. "Oh, Olivia, you have no idea." She put the phone back on the counter before going into the bathroom. "Alex, baby," Casey said.
Alex poked her head out of the shower. "Yes?"
"Olivia just sent you a txt message," Casey said.
"What did it say?" Alex asked before moving back into the shower.
"Who says I read it?" Casey asked.
"Because you're having trust issues and if you knew it was Olivia, you'd have checked it to see if there was anything you could use as a reason not to trust me," Alex said. "So, lay it on me."
"She said she had fun last night and hopes that you're not in too much trouble with me," Casey said.
Alex turned off the shower and opened up the curtain. "Am I in trouble with you?" she asked reaching for a towel.
"Should you be?" Casey asked.
Alex groaned. "Casey, I told you everything that happened with Olivia and I last night. Nothing happened. If something had happened, I'd have told you right away because I want to be with you and I don't want to keep things from you."
Alex took a step forward and cupped Casey's face in her hand. She looked into the beautiful green eyes of her lover. She leaned in and kissed Casey on the mouth. Alex got so occupied with kissing Casey that she forgot to hold onto the towel wrapped around her body.
After the towel had fallen to the floor, Casey pulled Alex closer to her. "I'm sorry," she said into the kiss.
