Okay, here's the next chapter. Not sure how good this turned out, but I had some of you begging me for a new chapter so here it is.
Chapter Ten: Talk Of the Town
I don't remember setting my alarm clock last night. Then I looked over on my nightstand and realized that it wasn't my alarm clock but my phone. I rubbed the sleep out of my eyes and answered it.
"This better be good," I said, not even bothering to check the caller ID.
"Hey, beautiful," I heard a familiar voice over the phone.
"Butch, what are you doing calling me at 6:45 in the morning?" I asked looking annoyed as glanced at the clock. "Isn't it a little early for you?"
"Well, maybe but I have a reason to get up early," he said. "You know, BC, I had a great time last night, so I was wondering…"
"What?" I asked. My heart was doing leaps, and I wondered what was on his mind. I was almost afraid to ask.
"I just thought that maybe I could come over and give you a ride to school."
"Butch, I have a car," I said. "Besides, I have an even better idea. Why don't I come and pick you up?" I suggested. "Unless…"
"Unless what?" Butch asked playfully.
"Unless you have a problem being dependent on a girl, or are you scared I'll drive you off a cliff?"
I heard him laughing over the phone. "Come on, BC, with you at in the driver's seat I'll take a ride with you anytime."
I didn't know if he was flirting with me or it was just coincidence, but my face felt hot as my cheeks turned redder than Blossom's hair. "Then it's settled,' I said with a hint of nervousness in my voice. "I'll come and pick you up. I'll be there in an hour."
"I'll be waiting,' he said and ended the call.
I shot out of bed and went straight for my closet looking for the perfect outfit. Damn it. Was I turning into Bubbles? It totally going gaga over this guy, and I had barely known him a week. I was becoming such a girl, and somehow I liked it.
I decided to wear my black skinny jeans. They were the one Bubbles got me for my birthday and my green and black angle striped tank top. It was sexy, but not anywhere near slutty.
I ran a brush through my hair and instead of tying it back in a ponytail as I always did I let it hang down and loose. I put on a little makeup, but not too much, only enough to highlight my natural features. Soon I ran downstairs to grab a little breakfast before heading out.
When I got to the kitchen Blossom and Bubbles were already eating breakfast. I grabbed a piece of toast and a glass of freshly poured orange juice.
"Hey," Bubbles squealed out in a high pitched voice. "That was mine."
"Sorry, Bubs, but I'm in a hurry," I said as I reached the door. Blossom's voice stopped me.
"Wait just one minute, Buttercup," she said stomping over to the door. She was wearing those nauseating pink sandal shoes that made a clicking sound with each step.
What now?" I blurted out in frustration. "Make it fast, or I'll be late."
"Don't you remember you're supposed to drive us to school since Dad had that early conference today."
"Oh, I forgot," I said. Damn it. Now, I would have to pick up Butch with my sisters tagging along. "Fine, but we have to make a detour. I told Butch I'd pick him up for school."
"Oh, really," Bubbles said, standing up and walking slowly towards me. "I almost forgot to ask what happened on your date last night."
I groaned in frustration. "Come on, Buttercup," Blossom said with a devious look in her eye. "Fess up."
"Fine, but in the car," I said giving in for just the hope of getting out of here this morning. "Now, can we go?"
"Just let me get my purse," Bubbles said. "If you're going to pick up Butch there's a good chance I'll see Boomer, and I don't want to look a mess."
I just rolled my eyes as Bubbles sprinted out of the kitchen. As least Blossom was ready to go, but it always took Bubbles extra time to go anywhere. She refused to go anywhere without her makeup on, even to the corner store.
It was only about five minutes since Bubbles left the kitchen, but it felt like an eternity. I folded my arms over my chest and tapped my foot while looking at the clock. Why can't this girl be on time for once?
"Settle down, Buttercup," Blossom said shaking her head and smirking. "So why are you so anxious to get to school on time, unless…" Blossom's eyes lit up. "Did you do it with Butch last night?" Blossom almost shouted the words. "You did, didn't you?"
"No!" I shouted back.
At that moment walked into the room. "Who did what?" She asked. It was obvious she didn't hear the whole conversation.
"Nothing," I snapped and grabbed Blossom's hand. "Let's just go."
I led her out to the car with Bubbles following close behind. Once we were in the car I started up the engine immediately and turned the radio up loud. Hopefully it was enough to distract my sisters into not asking questions about last night. My hopes were dashed almost immediately. Blossom rode shotgun and pushed the off button on the radio. Damn her. That was one of my favorite songs.
"Okay, Buttercup, time to talk," Blossom said.
"About what?" I asked, pretending that I didn't know what she was talking about.
"Last night,' she said, looking at me very annoyed.
"Yeah, Buttercup," Bubbles chimed in. "What did you and Butch do last night?"
"Or what didn't they do," Blossom added.
"We didn't do anything, not really," I said. Then I realized that I gave Blossom some unnecessary ammunition. Why couldn't I just keep my big mouth shut?
"Oh, come on, you said you'd tell us," Blossom said.
"Alright already," I snapped at her as I stopped at the light. "Butch took me to a biker bar."
"What?" Blossom said in a shocked tone. "You weren't drinking, were you?"
I stayed silent. I thought about lying to her, but she could always tell. Saying nothing was a better choice.
"You were, weren't you?" Blossom said. "Wait until Dad finds out."
"He better not, or he'll also find out about that special box under your bed."
Blossom gasped horrified that I knew about her little secret. When she finally came back to reality she looked away from me and out the window. "I have no idea what you're talking about."
"What box?" Bubbles asked.
"Never mind, Bubbles," Blossom said in an agitated voice.
I just chuckled. It was always good to have dirt on a sibling.
"So what else happened?" Bubbles asked.
"Not much, just played a little pool, won some money, danced, normal stuff," I said as it is were the most natural thing.
What do you mean you won some money?" Blossom asked. "Were you gambling? Buttercup, do you want to turn into some delinquent or something? And here I thought this guy was good for you."
"Blossom, don't be so damn uptight. It's not like we were hanging out with gangsters or anything. It was some idiot pool shark who challenged Butch to a game. He wasn't going to do it, but I talked him into it."
Blossom just looked over at me and shook her head. She could be an uptight prude sometimes, but it was always fun calling her on her less than prefect behavior.
Finally we arrived at Butch's. I saw him outside smoking a cigarette as I parked the car in front of his building. I noticed his brothers coming out of the just as I turned off the car.
"Hey, Butch," Brick said. "I guess she really was coming to pick you up." At that moment I saw Blossom exiting the car. "Well, the day is looking up." Brick walked over towards Blossom. "Hey, beautiful." As he took her hand I thought I saw her blush. Blossom's got it bad for that boy.
"Boomer," I heard Bubbles squeal as she practically jumped out of the car.
"Hey, Bubbles," Boomer said. "You look cute this morning, but then you always do."
Bubbles giggled as Boomer took her hand. "Oh, Boomer you're so sweet." At that moment I wanted to hurl. Bubbles was way too girly under normal circumstances, but when she was around Boomer she was downright nauseating. Boomer was her first real boyfriend. I just thought to myself that boy better not hurt her. Blossom seemed really happy with Brick, and I was glad. After all the heartbreak she's had.
Well, I guess it was official. We were the sisters dating the brothers. It almost made me sick. It was like a bad plot of some formula teen movie.
I got out of the car and walked over to Butch. "It looks like we got two extra passengers this morning."
"No, you don't," Brick said. I looked over to see that he had his arms around Blossom. "Blossom and Bubbles can ride with us."
"Yeah,' Boomer said as he picked up Bubbles. She giggled while in his arms. "We know how much you want to be alone."
Damn, I wanted to kill that blonde jerk for saying that. If he hadn't been holding my sister I would have.
"Boomer, you can put me down now. I can walk, you know."
"And damage those delicate feet," he said as she giggled. "I'd never let that happen." He opened the door to the van and placed her inside then got in himself and sat down next to her. I had never seen that van before. It looked beat up, but I remembered Butch telling me that Brick liked to fix up old junk cars, so I assumed this one was his latest project.
Brick helped Blossom into the van, riding shotgun.
"Wait a minute," Blossom said. "We forgot our school bags in the car," Blossom said. "I better go…"
"That's okay," Brick said cutting her off. "I'll go get them." Brick raced over to my car to get Blossom and Bubbles school bags. Boy, did she have him trained.
After he had gotten their bags he walked over to the driver's side of his van and started up the vehicle. "See you at school," I heard Bubbles yell out the window as they were driving away.
When they were finally out of sight I felt something warm touch my hand. I felt goose bumps forming on my arms. "We're finally alone."
I was flustered even though I tried to hide it. "We better get going, or we'll be late for school."
I tried to walk towards the car, but Butch pulled me back. Before I knew it I was in his arms. I tried not to look into his eyes, but I couldn't help it. I noticed he was looking into mine.
"Not before this," he said. Before I knew it his lips crashed onto mine. I felt shivers up and down my spine as felt his hands travel down my back until they reach my ass.
Suddenly I heard Boomer's voice. "Hey, Butch, don't knock her up." I looked over to the road to see the boys' van. "I win the bet, Brick, pay up."
I was shocked. I removed myself from Butch's embrace. I was about to give that little twerp a piece of my mind, but Brick had quickly drove off. I just stood there mad as hell until I felt Butch's arms wrap around me from behind. Before I knew it he was kissing my neck. "You're sexy when you're angry."
"Butch, do you mind if I kill your brother?"
"Whatever your pleasure," he said and sucked hard on my neck. Damn, that felt good, but I knew he was going to leave a hicky.
"We're going to be late," I said as I gasped. It only encouraged him to continue.
"Good," he said releasing me. I didn't have much of a chance to recover when he turned me around in his embrace. His lips were on mine, and I could barely breathe, so I opened my mouth trying to get some air. Butch took the opportunity to snake his tongue into my mouth. I could practically taste what he must have had for breakfast. It definitely wasn't a vegetarian meal. The guy loved meat, and it was starting to turn me on.
Suddenly he stopped which surprised me. "Come on, BC. Let's go." He took my hand and led me to car. "Keys, please."
"No way, tough guy. I'm driving today."
"Don't you trust me with your car?" he asked teasingly.
"That's not the point," I said. "I'm driving, and that's the end of it. So do you have a problem being chauffeured around?"
"I'm all yours, baby," he said and gave me a little slap on my ass.
I jumped and let out a screech. "It's a good thing I like you, or…"
He just smirked and got into the car. As I got in I immediately put the key in the ignition. He he barely had his seat belt on when I drove off. This was going to be one crazy day.
We got to school with barely ten minutes to spare. I had just enough time to get to my locker and put my things away before homeroom stated. Butch and I were walking down the hall together. I noticed that everyone was staring at us and whispering. Didn't these people have anything better to do then to gossip? I was so annoyed by the time we got to my locker I had trouble opening it.
"Let me," Butch said and gave it a light pound. The thing instantly opened.
"How did you do that?" I asked him as I dumped me stuff inside. I only took out the things I need for first and second period, since they were on the third floor and my locker was on the first.
"Magic," he said and smirked at me. I just shook my head as I closed it back.
"Hey, Butch, how's your bod?" I heard a girl say as she passed us. I looked up to see it was one of those annoying cheerleaders Bubbles was friends with. I shot her a look like I wanted to kill her, but she only laughed and walked on.
"Something wrong?" Butch asked me as we walked down the hall together.
"I hate that girl," I said.
"Why, for flirting with me?" he asked with a chuckle. He had his arm around me shoulder. I immediately pushed it off and walked ahead of him.
"Hey, Buttercup, wait up," Butch said and quickly caught up with me. He grabbed my hand and pulled me back towards him. "You're not jealous, are you?"
"What? Hell, no. Jealous of what?" I snapped at him.
"Just like you were the other day when that girl kissed me," he said and pulled me close to him. "Don't you know you're the only girl for me?" My face was red hot and I think he could tell, because he wrapped his arms around me and pulled me into a passionate kiss right in front of everyone. I could hear gasps and some sighs from people around us.
I even heard one guy shout out, "Way to go!" I knew that guy. It was Joey Stamp, Blossom's ex. I'll have to kill him later.
Finally when he let me go I looked around to see about a dozen people staring at us. "What the hell are you all looking at?" I shouted. "Got nothing better to do?"
Some of them just gave me an ugly look like what's her problem and walked away. The guys were whistling and hooting while whispering some profanities. I looked over at Butch who was just shaking his head. "What?"
"You," he said. "Remind not to get on your bad side."
"I don't have a bad side," I said protesting his statement. It seemed that suddenly we were the talk of the town.
He just put his arm around my waist and led me into the classroom. Even as we walked to the back of the classroom people were staring at us. Would you all just get a life? If I didn't know it before I knew it now. This was going to be one long crazy day.
So that's it for this one. Next chapter is the Return of Mitch. What will Buttercup do? What will Butch do, and how much blood will be involved? You'll have to wait until next time to find out.
