Authors Note: Alright, so this is a small, tiny, crapola chapter but I wanted to put something out before my birthday and I didn't feel like continuing the next chapter into this fit, so .. blame me.
I'm a sucker for cliff hangers and I feel like the pivotal moment and the emotional ride I've created would be thwarted if I added anymore to this. But that's just me.
My birthday is in a number of hours, on PST it's in an hour and 30 minutes, on EST it's happened already. So be kind. This is my b-day party... !
Please give me your honest opinions and suggestions.
FYI: This isn't going to be a particularly long story, probably 10 chaps.
Read and Review.
Unbeat'ed as always. Mistakes are mine.
Happy Holidays, -M
I don't know what shocked me more, laying next to E, the boy I may or may not have had a crush on since 6th grade, or the fact that we were both fucking naked, all skin: as bare as the day we were born or that my thighs hurt, and there were small smatterings of blood on my sheets.
My eyes frantically scanned the room, searching for something to put on. I internally sighed when I spotted E's shirt. I got up, tucking my body in trying to hide my body from any unsuspecting peering eyes, slipped into his tee and surveyed my surroundings.
The small living room looked like it had been hit my a tornado. Beer cans, who's I'm not sure, strewn across the table, roaches littered the ashtray and pre-rolled joints were lined up next to a black bic lighter.
I grabbed a joint and the lighter before stumbling into the kitchen, searching for the tequila. I found it tucked behind a box in a lower cabinet with only a shot or two left. I poured myself one downing it quickly before lighting the joint and inhaling deeply.
Between the alcohol and the soothing medicating quality the weed had, I was feeling less than crap, so I began searching for Cat.
I found her in my room, which I barely used, curled up on an old mattress with E's older brother Emmett and groaned.
What the fuck happened last night!? This was ridiculous.
Kneeling down next to Cat's face, I took a deep drag off the joint, blowing the smoke in her face.
"Cat." I whisper yelled.
She moaned something I couldn't comprehend and tried to roll over.
"No... No.. No! Wake the fuck up!" I pulled at her arm, until she opened her eyes and looked at me.
"Do you know who your laying next to?" I asked her while she made a grabbing motion with her hand, signaling she wanted the next hit of the almost dead joint. I freely gave it to her, happy to be rid of it as long as I got answers.
She mumbled something, sitting up. Then she turned too look at her side. Her eyes widened and she almost choked on the thick smoke.
"What the fuck Belly!?" She handed me back the joint which was more like a roach now, so I put it out on the linoleum.
"I don't know. I wake up, stark ass naked laying next to E and your nowhere to be found... and I come in here... and.." I was frustrated. Wait, scratch that, beyond frustrated.
I hadn't blacked out in years and last night wasn't a good time to start.
"I don't know either."
This was great.
"Come on, lets go make something to eat. Maybe food will help us remember." It was a suggestion; A futile idea in the grand scheme of things. Because after our bellies were full of eggs, we were no where close to knowing what happened.
Cat turned to me, her eyes wide and confused, as she racked her hungover brain for info.
"I don't remember anything after the guys coming over."
I sighed. "Neither do I."
"So you guys don't remember last night?" A voice commented.
I recognized it as E's.
We looked at him as he sat up on my little pallet, his eyes un-seeable, but his body delicious.
"No." We both said in unison.
He laughed as me and Cat looked at one another. This was not funny.
"What the fuck is funny pretty boy?" Cat asked.
I wanted to hit her, tell her to shut up, but I was stagnant, unmoving and un-speaking.
"Me and Emmett followed you home, and you invited us in.. and shit got crackin' what can I say?"
"More than that. Did we fuck?" I didn't want to know the answer, but I needed to.
E laughed again.
"I'm not going to sugar coat this, yes we did. But let me make this clear, you were more than willing, and so was I."
I turned, covering my face in Cat's shoulder so it couldn't betray me.
Before I knew it I was crying, no, I was sobbing uncontrollably.
"What the fuck Cat!" I screamed into her shoulder.
"I was a virgin."
Cat held me as I cried. She knew I hadn't had sex before. I was holding out for love.
"Why?" I cried.
"You seemed into it.." E replied.
I took my head out of the crook of Cat's neck and screamed, "I was a virgin you asshole!"
He looked taken aback. Served him fucking right, I supposed.
"I..." He was at a loss for words.
"How could you!?" I screamed.
