Breakfast was amazing. Being able to wake up next to Alec and enjoy a nice breakfast like a normal couple made things a little easier. When we were in high school Alec,Sarah and myself were hardly ever separated. Though Alec and myself hung out together more than all of us combined. Something between us sparked even then though we never dived into it until recently. Who knew I’d be happy with my best friend as my lover.
I sat perched on his lap, watching a movie and every so often I’d turn and kiss his neck inhaling his addictive scent.
A soft knock at the door interrupted my current small love bite trail down his neck.
I went to get up to answer the door only to be pulled back down and kissed harshly.
“I’ll get it” he rose from his spot as I curled up in the spot he’d currently occupied. Mmm it was all warmed up for me.
“You fucking backstabbing bitch!” I sprang up from the couch just as Sarah stormed past Alec.
“Back off Sarah” Alec growled his footsteps are up hers just as she reached me, her hand was raised and would have hit me if Alec hadn’t caught it in time.
I knew this would happen, it was only a matter of time.
“Good morning Sarah” I addressed her calmly. I was so thankful Alec had caught her hit
“Do.Not.Touch. Her” he ground out harshly throwing her arm away.
Sarah sneered at both of us, “This ends now, you’re my boyfriend Alec, I can look past this and we can go on our way and be as we were before this tramp came along. I still love you” her one perfectly nice demeanor was shattered I now saw her as he sees her. No longer stood my best friend who I told everything to, who had once been the nicest sweetest girl that had walked through Rosemont High, a vile serpent stood in place with a forked tongue and a wicked bite.
“Get out of my house” I demanded not waiting for Alec’s response.
“You’re a backstabbing whore Cassandra Joy and you’ll never be anything to Alec other than a fuck buddy. He will always come home to me” she smirked triumphantly, “his soon to be wife”
“I doubt it” I said watching her confident facade waver, “whether he goes back to you or not I’ll always have a part of him” I said with my hand hovering protectively over my flat stomach.
Her eyes widened as they took in the small yet equally giant action. Her mouth formed a small O and she took a step back.
She looked up and for a moment I saw the old Sarah staring back at me but it was gone as quickly as it came.
“My parents are going to hear about this” she yelled.
“Good” Alec said stepping closer and wrapping his arm around my waist. I leaned into him for support. I was thrilled that he was taking my side in front of her. To me that meant he was serious about us and the baby. “Tell them Sarah. Tell them that I love this girl and I wouldn’t ever leave my child without a father”
She laughed in disbelief and it sounded forced,
“You don’t love her, she’s just your current flavor of the week. Just remember I’ve seen the people you surround yourself with when your not visiting this small town, I’ve seen the woman that hang on your arms. She won’t survive that life and your not one to stay loyal to, I know this and I’m willing to look past it once we’re married. She won’t, just remember that” with a tight turn on her heel she left slamming the door behind her.
Flavor of the week?
Was he a player? Was he playing me?
I looked up at his face and I almost wished I hadn’t. The truth was written across it like a giant neon sign.
“So Sarah and I arnt the only women you are seeing?” I asked feeling suddenly light headed and sick.
His gray eyes were clouded with so many emotions I wasn’t sure what to believe, “You are the only woman I’m seeing cas, If it wasn’t for the deal that was made I wouldn’t be with Sarah. Before me and you started our relationship I.... I was seeing multiple women.”
I could hardly breathe, it felt like he oxygen was just sucked right out of my body.
Trying not to cry I cleared my throat and starred at the floor, “how come you’ve never mentioned your glorious lifestyle before? Is it really so different than here?”
“Yes and because I like you just the way you are, I don’t want to show you that life and lose you in the mix of it all. Sometimes it can be a lot to take on” he took a step towards me and I stayed still, I couldn’t find the energy to move. Why was it when something good began to come around something bad followed before even giving it a chance?
“But if we were to continue this relationship I’d need to see your other life” if he thought he could keep me sheltered here he had another thing coming.
“Yea and eventually I would introduce you to it but the moment you stepped into the city with me you’d be bombarded by paparazzi”
“How did you manage to get the paparazzi involved?” I asked sitting back on the couch.
“I work for a huge corporation, I’m a main player in their game of business. I attend Galas and other functions with other big wigs, usually paparazzi are already there so after attending a few events people began to talk and become interested in me.” He explained kneeling in front of me between my legs.
“When you leave here and go back to the city do you forget me and have someone else waiting for you?” The insecure feeling that I hadn’t felt since high school began to take route, it sounded like he could have anyone he wanted, so why me?
“No, you’re it Cas”
It should have made me feel better but it didn’t.
“I... I’m not sure what to think or what to say Alec.”
“Just say that you want to be with me and that you believe we’ll get through this” he said taking my hands in his.
“I do want to be with you” i squeezed his hands reassuringly. Taking a deep breath, mentally I tried pushing away the dark feelings I had before speaking, “Alec my deepest fear is you having someone on the side.” I let out a humorless laugh, “hell I am the someone on the side technically”
His eyes darkened and he tugged me forward until my forehead rested against his, “You are not the other woman, she is. I do not love her Cas, get that through your thick head, you are my main girl she is simply extra baggage that I intend to remove very soon”
