Happy Happy! if anyone has any tips on how I could improve my writing style please let me know. For some reason I always seem to stick to a more colloquial writing style, even when i try not to! Hopefully you are enjoying it so far. Alyssa is such a wee biatch isn't she?
Rule three: Do not sleep with their brother
I groaned loudly holding my head and sitting up. I felt like complete shit. I covered my mouth trying to avoid the retching that was sure to hit me in a couple of minutes. I squinted my eyes trying to clear up my vision; where the hell was I? I stood up and almost let out a shriek when the sheet dropped and I realised it was all that had been covering me. I turned in horror to face the bed dreading who I'd see.
"Hmm you should just dress like that all the time," Cole drawled from behind me. I picked up the sheet wrapping it around myself and glaring at him. This was not good. Not at all. I picked up my clothes and spun round to face him.
"WHY AREN'T YOU FREAKING OUT?!" I hissed. Cole shrugged.
"It isn't that big a deal, we were safe if that is what you are worrying about," he said gesturing to the wrappers beside his bed. I almost slapped him. Almost.
"NO, I am worrying about the fact that we fucking slept together Cole," I hissed. He smirked at me.
"Well, we didn't really do much sleeping Alyssa, thought you didn't like me?" He teased. I scowled at him.
"I don't, how am I going to get out without Ana noticing?" I asked punching his arm. Cole's eyes darkened.
"She didn't come home again," he muttered. I nodded.
"Okay okay, this is good. Go get my clothes from her room I am not wearing last nights clothes. Cole smirked stepping towards me and tugging at the sheet so that I fell onto the bed.
"I think you should just stay like this," he murmured, trailing kisses up my neck. I shivered slightly
"Stop it," I muttered weakly. Cole grinned bringing his face close to my ear.
"Admit that you find me attractive," he whispered. I gulped trying to ignore the heat in my stomach and shook my head. Cole raised an eyebrow
"Wasn't what you were screa-um...saying last night," he teased. I pushed his shoulders away from me and scowled. Cole smiled dipping his head down towards mine and pressing his lips to mine gently, my hands instinctively came up to wrap around his neck. Cole pulled back and I let out a moan of protest.
"Nope you definitely don't like me, do you?" He mocked ruffling my hair. I scowled standing up and pulling on the clothes from the night before and walking over to Ana's room silently...just in case she had come home.
"You don't need to creep about, she isn't home dear," I whirled round like a deer caught in the headlights to face Helen, their mother. She grinned at me.
"I always told you both this would happen, don't worry I won't let Ana know," she said smirking at me. I felt my whole face heat up and my mouth go dry. Cole appeared at my side with his boxers on. Helen smirked at us. Cole cleared his throat awkwardly.
"Hey mum, I thought you weren't back till late tonight?" He asked. She shook her head.
"Dad wanted to come home early," she said before asking if we wanted breakfast. My stomach growled hungrily. I was in need of a proper hangover cure. Cole nodded.
"We will be down after showers," he said before pushing me into Ana's room to pick up my stuff.
I turned to face him letting out a huge sigh.
"That was so humiliating. You do realise that she and my mother will not stop going on about this," I muttered running a hand through my hair. Cole shrugged.
"Like they always said, it was always inevitable," he teased. I rolled my eyes.
"Just go get me a towel," I muttered.
I scowled at my reflection in the mirror pulling my hair into a tight bun and dabbing my face with my towel and pulling on my tank top and track suit bottoms. I opened the bathroom door walking down the stairs into the kitchen and joining Cole and Helen at the table. Cole's father, William, was at the counters plating up pancakes. The front door swung open and Ana walked in, obviously not expecting her parents to be back. Cole smirked at her. Ana glanced at me and cursed. William turned to face her and raised his eyebrows.
"Where the hell were you?" He asked. Ana stared at them open mouthed and did the brilliant impression of a goldfish. She frowned.
"You weren't supposed to come home till later tonight," she muttered weakly. I frowned at her. She was avoiding my eyes. I raised an eyebrow at her. William shook his head.
"Don't even think of doing this ever again," he said calmly. Ana gestured for me to come upstairs and I followed after her. She knew, she knew. Fuck. Ana closed her room door rounding on me.
"I am so sorry I bailed on you last night, I just couldn't be there. I hope Cole split a taxi? I totally forgot I was meant to be taking you home," she said running a hand through her hair. She thought I was only here because I lived in the countryside. I practically screamed with happiness. I shook my head
"It's fine we got a taxi back here instead. So what did you get up to?" I asked. I know what you are thinking. I am a horrible excuse for a human being. I should be feeling guilty. But I didn't. All I could think was; I got away with it. I never claimed to be a nice person, I'm really not. In fact I am a class A bitch.
"Oh nothing I was called in to tutoring someone and crashed there," she said. I raised my eyebrow.
"Wow that really is dedication," I said smirking at her. Ana smirked back at me.
"That's my story and I am sticking to it," she said. I turned to face the opening door to see Cole staring at us.
"Breakfast time fat asses," he drawled. I felt my insides begin to warm up and scowled. Damn teenage hormones.
"Don't call me a fat ass," Ana and I hissed simultaneously. Cole rolled his eyes gesturing for us to go down the stairs. Ana ran ahead. Obviously hungry. Cole smirked.
"I'm guessing she doesn't know?" He drawled. I nodded.
"And let's keep it that way, no one finds out," I said dangerously. Cole smirked at me and nodded.
"My lips are sealed," he whispered. I felt the hairs on the back of my neck raise and flashbacks of the night before, what he'd been whispering then, making my knees go weak. I let out a frustrated sigh. I was so happy that Ana hadn't found out. Even happier that Cole had agreed to keep it quiet. I couldn't afford to go there again...so why on earth was I dying to kiss him again?
Do not sleep with your best friends brother. Especially if he is unnaturally good looking. You may find yourself craving a repeat. God damn it Cole, get out of my head!
