I just wanted to take a moment and first of all say thank you so much to everyone who has favorited this story or put me on their watch list. I really want to be a writer and I figured if I didn't have the guts to post my goofy fan fics up online than I wouldn't have the guts to write something real. I didn't actually expect anyone to like this. So thank you all, you've been very encouraging!
Secondly, I have gotten all of your comments and I do intend on continuing this story to the end. I apologize that I do not update in a timely fashion and I hope you can forgive that. I am currently 9 months pregnant and due any day so with the baby my writing may slow down a bit more or I may have even more time to concentrate on it. I'm not sure what to expect, but it's only fair to let you all know this. I have hit a bit of a block with this story because I had a couple different ideas on where to lead this and I haven't quite decided which idea path I want to take. I swear I will decide soon and pump this out for you guys.
If any of you have any suggestions or requests for another fic you would like me to write from any show and book let me know. I'm up for ideas, and I watch and read a lot so it doesn't have to be True Blood.
Anyway, sorry this chapter is a short one, but I swear I'm trying to decide on this and after I decide I will pump it out! Thank you again for your support and I hope you continue liking my stuff!
Once again, Kylie woke up with Jason next to her snoring softly. She rolled over carefully watching his sleeping face for a short while. Her thoughts drifted off to Hoyt and her cheeks reddened with anger. How could he say those things to her? They had been best friends since they could walk, and suddenly he dumps all of this baggage on her? She sighed in frustration, causing Jason to stir next to her. His sleepy eyes opened to look at her and a silly grin spread across his face, "What's bothering you?"
Kylie looked at him, surprised. "How do you know something is bothering me?"
Jason laughed knowingly and stretched his gorgeous body along the bed. "You get this little vain in your forehead that pops up when you're real pissed off at something." Jason touched the spot on her forehead that he was referring to, still smiling at her.
Kylie grabbed her head self-consciously and turned away from him. "There is no vain!" She told him, knowing full well that there was one. Her parents always pointed it out when she was smaller. She just couldn't believe Jason Stackhouse bothered to notice something like that.
Jason laughed and leaned over her, kissing her lips sweetly. "It's cute." He told her as he climbed out of the bed. "Besides, it helps me to know when you're mad at me and when you're not." He winked at her as he leaned over, pulling on a pair of underwear that was sitting on the floor.
Kylie watched Jason in disbelief. "There are a lot of things you don't let on about yourself, Jason Stackhouse." She told him with a smirk. "You're a very smart man."
Jason looked at her before jumping onto the bed, pinning her down. "That is confidential information! You can't tell anyone or it'll ruin my reputation!" He told her teasingly.
Kylie giggled, trying to roll away from Jason's body but found herself stuck. "Don't worry; your secret is safe with me. Besides, I don't need to be fighting off any more women away from you than I already have to."
Jason rolled onto his side and brushed a stray hair out of Kylie's face, "don't worry about that. I'm done with all those girls." He grinned at her, "I got you now!"
Kylie rolled her eyes and glanced over at the clock. It was already 2; they had slept half the day away. She climbed out of the bed and stretched. "Well I have to go shopping; I need some work clothes for my new job." She turned to face Jason who was lazily sprawled across the bed, "want to come with me?"
Jason mulled this thought over, "Sure! I like watching you put on clothes."
Kylie gave Jason a quizzical look, "Really? You want to spend the afternoon shopping with me?"
Jason shrugged, "Well yeah, what else am I going to do? It's my day off and you're my girlfriend."
Kylie shook her head in disbelief and headed into the bathroom. Too many surprises coming at her from two men she thought she knew forwards and backwards.
It was the first Monday of her new job; Kylie was in her new office behind the main check out desk of the Bon Temp Library. She loved the location; it was much easier to keep an eye on the librarians at work. Kylie pulled out another box that was left behind from Marge, the previous manager. She sighed heavily as she looked at the amount of paperwork she needed to sort through. Marge was an older woman who didn't believe in the filing systems of computers. Kylie had months of paperwork to sort through before she could even begin to move forward in her position.
"Kylie?" One of the librarians named Karen stood in the doorway of her office. "You have a phone call on line one."
Kylie smiled and thanked her as she picked up her phone. "This is Kylie." She said politely into the receiver.
"Hey, it's Hoyt."
"Oh," Kylie immediately made a mental note to tell the librarians to ask who was calling for future avoidance of these kinds of conversations. "I'm kind of busy here, Hoyt. What do you need?"
"I'm sorry, I know you're busy, but I really want to talk to you. Maybe we can do lunch?"
"I'm not sure I'll have the time," she answered him shortly.
"Please, Kylie? I really want to talk to you about the other night. I swear I won't bother you again."
Kylie took a moment to think it over before reluctantly agreeing to meet Hoyt in an hour for a quick lunch.
Kylie walked into the local sandwich shop that she and Hoyt agreed to meet for lunch. Hoyt was already seated in a corner booth. He waved at her as she walked inside.
"Hey" she said as she slid into the booth across from him.
"Hey, thank you for coming, Kylie." Hoyt told her.
"What did you want to talk about?" Kylie asked him, cutting right to the chase.
Hoyt looked down before pulling out a bouquet of daisies next to him and handed them to Kylie.
"I wanted to apologize for the other night, I feel awful for yelling at you like that. It's just…the whole you and Jason thing really threw me for a loop. I mean, he's just so…Jason."
Kylie gave Hoyt a pointed look.
"I know, forget it. I'm not here to argue about it. I just wanted to say I'm sorry. I can't stand it when you're mad at me." He looked down again, wiping his hands on his pants nervously, waiting for her to respond.
"I don't remember telling you my favorite flower." She told him, staring at the daisies.
"It was in seventh grade. We went on a field trip and they were blooming in front of the museum and you told me they were your favorite. You picked one when you thought no one was looking."
Kylie found herself blushing, "I can't believe you remember that."
Hoyt shook his head, "I remember everything about you, Kylie. You're my best friend."
Kylie smiled at him, "Well I'm sorry about the other night too."
Hoyt returned her smile, "There's nothing to apologize for."
"I guess neither of us has really had a serious relationship all these years we've been friends." Kylie told him, "I guess we both have to adjust to the change."
Hoyt frowned, "what if I don't want to adjust?" he asked her seriously.
Kylie shrugged him off, "you have no choice. You have Jessica now." She reminded him.
Hoyt sighed heavily, "You just had to come back into my life, Kylie Bard."
Kylie scoffed at him, "Well sorry." She responded sarcastically.
Hoyt held his hands up, "I didn't mean it that way. I mean that I just…" he paused a moment, "I really missed you."
Kylie relaxed into the booth she was seated in, "I really missed you too, Hoyt."
