Sky’s P.O.V

Man, Sundays are worrying as fuck.

‘Why?’ you ask. Well, technically, it’s both Saturdays and Sundays. It’s because, for some reason, these days goes faster than the other five.

Saturday: Ah, a nice day to relax. Yay, weekends. But as soon as you put the movie on, the day starts to end faster than ever.

Sunday: Shit, I have classes tomorrow. Well, school starts at 8:30 am which means that I technically have... 23 hours and 30 minutes to spend goofing around.

I was currently scrolling through Instagram.

Damn, that guy is H O T.

Oooh, look at that girl’s hairstyle!

And the nails. Gorgeous.

I thought about it for a moment and then opened up the girls’ group chat.

Me: Hey. U guys free? (:

Ver: Yup and I’m bored so suggest please!!!

Maya: I’m free

Lacey: Me too

Serene: Yep.

I walked downstairs with my small bag.

I still have a few more minutes left so I decided to spend that in the living room.

As soon as I entered, the sight in front of me almost gave me a fucking heart attack.

Hudson Lorenzo Walker was reading a full-on romantic, smut-filled, werewolf novel.

Yes, I have read that book. It’s good.

I slowly walked over to the sofas and sat opposite to him.

I stared at him in astonishment.

Why does him, of all people, read that?

“What?” Hudson asked, not even bothering to look up from the book.

“How’s the book?” I raised a brow.

“Eh, it’s alright.”

“OK... What’s wrong with it? Can’t handle the smut?” I smirked and leaned back.

“It’s not that-”

“So you do admit that you can’t handle the smut?”

“I can handle it, thank you very much,” Hudson rolled his eyes. “It’s just too descriptive and kind of boring.”

“Boring? The “human” girl gets kidnapped by her alpha mate but then they realise that she’s the daughter of Dracula and she freaks out and the pack hates her but then he’s the king alpha, so all the packs have to obey him but then his evil cousin challenges him and then he looses the first time so he gets thrown off a cliff but then he magically manages to survive. The girl MC is imprisoned by the evil cousin and he tries to rape her but then the boy MC saves her. Happily ever after. What’s so boring about that?”

“It just got even more boring because you spoiled it for me,” he sighed and my lips formed an ‘o’.

“Sorry,” I smiled sheepishly. I looked at him and thought about it for a moment.

“Hey, you ready to go?” Maya asked as she walked up to me. Lacey and Serene was behind her.

Where’s Veronica?

Never mind, I have to do something quickly.

I walked up to Hudson and took the book from him.

“Stay right there, I’ll be back,” I called over my shoulder as I ran upstairs.

I walked into my room and opened the drawer which contained my favourite books.

Now, when I say ‘favourite’, I don’t mean smut-filled. I just really like the storyline.

Vampire or werewolf?

Vampire. Definitely vampire.

I quickly went downstairs to see the girls waiting for me and Hudson sitting on the couch, scrolling through his phone.

“Here,” I said as I handed him the book. “It’s about vampires and stuff so, enjoy.” That’s all I said before I left with the girls.

****

“Wait, so your mom’s boyfriend tried hitting on you but you didn’t tell anyone and kept it quiet but then his son tried hitting on you?” I asked Veronica in confusion.

It’s currently 6:39 pm and we decided to walk the rest of the way home so that we can talk as much as we want without feeling awkward in a cab.

I got my hair cut so that it was up to my hips right now. Yes, it still had the highlights but they started to fade away slowly. I got my nails done white too.

"I'm not proud of it," she shrugged in reply.

"Can I be honest with you?"

"Go on."

"That is royally fucked up."

"I know."

"Wait, what happened to them two?" Serene asked.

"Well," Veronica started. "They kept on doing this but I knew that my mom won't believe anything I say since she hates my guts, so I recorded it and then showed it to my mum. Then she has the audacity to say that it's my fault because she thinks that I dress like a whore and kicked me out of the house."

"Ouch," Maya sympathised.

"Yeah, I don't really care about it now, it's been 2 years," she huffed in reply.

"Hmm..." Lacey hummed.

"So, Lacey," I started. "What's up with you and Finn?"

She seemed to tense at my question.

"Nothing. We're just good friends."

"Wait, what?" Serene raised a brow.

"Why?" I whined.

"Yeah, um, Finn is actually gay," Lacey replied meekly.

If I'm honest, I want to laugh so badly. But that would make me a horrible cousin/ friend/ person.

Veronica cleared her throat. "How did you find out?"

"Hudson told me. Apparently, he figured out that I had a crush on him so he told me."

Clever.

She did her best to hide it but he still figured it out.

"For what it's worth, I hope you feel better," Maya smiled hopefully.

"Yeah, I'm fine. I guess there's only a thin line between being in 'love' and being obsessed with someone."

"Eh, you'll find the one," I cooed. I hope I do too...
