Chapter Six

Link’s POV

Carla came home with dinner about 30 minutes later, apparently the restaurant where she was getting the food was really busy tonight so she had to wait. I didn’t mind, it gave me time to have an extremely cold shower. It was awful. I felt awful. Hailey probably hates me. Thinks that I just want her for sex. That’s not at all true. I don’t know what I want with her. She makes me feel something awful. Whenever I think of her I can’t help but smile like an idiot. Then I remember that she’s my best friends little sister. He’d kill me if he ever found out that I kissed his little sister, he acts like he doesn’t care about her, but he does. He’s her older brother.

I helped Carla set the table for dinner, it was the least I could do considering all that she has done for me all these years. She was a mother to me, I would do anything for her. She saved me from my own family. She never legally adopted me, but it was basically as if she had. I think she knew better than to ask me if she could. She knew that I would always love my own parents, even if they didn’t love me back. I think she felt sorry for me, well she had every reason to feel sorry for me. She never showed that she did though, she treated me like I was one of her own. And one day I would seriously repay her for everything that she has done for me.

Asiago chicken bowties. My favourite. She knows me so well. She always knew me so well. Every since I was a little kid. She knew when my birthday was, got me a present every year. Always knew my favourite colour too. I wish my mom had cared for me the way that Carla does.

“Where’s Hailey?” Chase spoke up, he had a mouth full of his sesame chicken wrap, also his favourite.
“Oh, she’s not feeling very well. Might have been something she ate at the mall. I put her salad in the fridge, she can eat it when she’s ready. She’s in her room reading right now. I don’t think you’ll be seeing much of her tonight. It’ll be like you guys have the place to yourselves.” Carla said solemnly.
I knew Hailey was feeling fine, well she wasn’t sick, that’s forsure. God I felt like a complete asshole. I wanted so badly to go to her and tell her that i’m sorry, make her listen to my explanation. Suddenly I didn’t feel like eating anymore. My appetite was completely gone. And that was not something that happened often.

“Is something wrong Link? You’ve barely touched your food or said a work this entire dinner”Carla asked, concern written across her face.

“Yeah, sorry everythings fine. I was just thinking about my mom, its her birthday soon. I was just thinking about what I should get her is all.” a lie, not a total lie, it was her birthday soon. But i wasn’t thinking about that right now. I hated lying to Carla, she usually knew when I was lying. I was just hoping that she didn’t this time.

“Oh sweetie, if you need any help or someone to come with you to, hm, visit her. I’m sure Chase will go with you, or if he can’t then I will gladly come with you. Just let me know ok darling?“she reached across the table and placed her hand on mine. I gave her a small smile. Turning my attention to Chase. I didn’t want him to think he had to come with me to visit my mom. It was a subject that he was always uncomfortable with. Not in a mean way. I knew he felt bad for me too. He was my best friend and had been there through the entire childhood experience. He knew the whole dreadful story.

~~~

Carla left about an hour later after we finished dinner. I helped her clean up and chase set up the living room for us to ‘watch the game’. To tell you the truth I really didn’t want to hang out with those girls later. But I had to, Chase and Katie broke things off this morning and I knew he wanted to forget about her. He had a problem, as soon as he started to catch feelings for a girl he left her with no explanation at all. Im hoping one girl will smack him upside the head and he’ll realize what he’s doing. But until that happens I gotta hangout with the girl’s friend cause she won’t come alone or some stupid shit like that.

“Yo, Link are you ready for the girls to come? They should be here any minute.” Chase said to me from the living room, I was currently sitting at the island drinking a beer. I’m going to need a few of these if I’m going to survive this night.
“Ya man i’m just gonna get changed and i’ll be right out.” I downed the rest of my beer and put it in the recycling before heading down the hallway to my room. I could see a faint light coming from under Hailey’s room. It took everything in me not to go into her room and just stay there with her instead of keep these girls company.
I changed into my grey sweatpants and a light sweater, I pushed up the sleeves. I heard the doorbell ring and then giggles coming from the living room. Groaning, great. Theyre here.
I left my room and went back to the living room. The two girls smiled when they looked up at me. How bad was it that I already forgot their names. That’s how uninterested I am in this evening. They were both wearing basically nothing for clothes. It didn’t even affect me. I had no interest in sleeping with either of them tonight. Thankful that I had relieved myself in the shower, once or twice.
“Hey Link why don’t you and Sienna go and get us some drinks while Taylor and I set up the movie and stuff?” Chase said, he grabbed the brunettes hand whom i’m assuming is Taylor and leading her towards the living room. I turn to the black haired girl who’s name is Sienna. She smiles at me seductively. I had to resist the urge to cringe. I smiled back at her and gestured for her to go to the kitchen, she took off her jacket and I took it from her and hung it on one of the dining room chairs. She went into the fridge.

“What’s your poison darling?” she asked over her shoulder. She was trying to make me look at her ass. God some girls are be so desperate.

“I’ll have a beer please, Chase will a rum and coke, you girls can have what you want. We’ve got all sorts of coolers, beers, and liquors.” she pulled out to beers, a can of coke and a twisted tea. Had to give it to her she was carrying everything completely fine. I raised an eyebrow at her as she balanced everything in her arms and walked over to the island. I grabbed some cups from the cupboard.
“Impressive, even I would have dropped something” I said to her, I might as well try and be nice right. I’m not a dick to women. Never have been and I never will be. Sienna smiled at me cracking open the beer, she slid it across the island to me. I caught it in my hand and looked at her as she smirked.
“I work as a bartender/waitress, have been for 5 years now. I know how to carry multitudes of alcohol when I need to” she smiled. She opened a beer of her own and took a sip. Strange, most girls didn’t drink beer.

“Si! Where’s my drink babe!” Taylor giggled from the living room. Sienna rolled her eyes while she poured some rum into a glass along with the coke and carried it into the living room. I could definitely see myself being friends with this girl.

I followed her into the living room where she handed the drinks out and placed her beer on the table. The couch was big enough for all four of us. Chase was at one end with Taylor sitting beside him, he had his arm around her. Sienna sat beside her friend and she whispered something in her ear. The two girls giggled. I sat down beside her and rested m arm across the back of the couch. Chase took a sip of his drink and i watched as he did a double take of the drink and then looked over at me. I shook my head and nodded to Sienna.
“Damn, thats a good drink. Perfect mixture of alcohol to coke” Chase said outloud. The girls giggled.

“That’s cause Si made it! She’s one of the best bartenders this city has ever seen! She works down at the vault. She’s the head bartender and the manager there!” Taylor gushed about her friend. I was even more impressed. She was so young, but she was doing well for herself. The vault was one of the busiest places in the city. You had to make reservations weeks, if not months in advance to get in there.
“I’m impressed! Maybe you’ll be able to sneak us in one night! I’d love to go there.” Chase said winking at Taylor, she giggled while Sienna just rolled her eyes.
“Yeah forsure, I can bring in people when I want, just can’t do it all the time you know? Just let me know one time and i’ll get you guys in for sure” she smiled.

I heard Hailey’s door open and the sound of her footsteps coming down the hallway. Once she came into view she looked over at us with a confused look on her face.
“Oh shit, sorry guys I completely forgot. I’m just getting my dinner and I’ll be out of your way” she said awkwardly. I couldn’t help but stare at her. She looked like she had been crying. She was wearing pj shorts and a tank top. She glaned at me and as soon as we made eye contact she looked away.
“No problem Hails, mom left your dinner in the fridge, when you leave can you get the light please” It was Chase this time, he was actually being nice to his sister. Maybe he noticed that she looked upset. It was kind of obvious. I hated to see her like that, especially because i was the one who made her upset in the first place.
She just nodded at Chase before leaving to the kitchen, she got her food and a bottle of wine that she tried to hide on her way back to her room. I noticed it just before she turned the light off and disappeared back down the hall to her room. Now if that didn’t make me feel like even more shit I don’t know what would. She was drinking wine alone in her room while we’re all out here having fun watching a movie together. God damnit.

~~~

The night went on really well. After we watched the movie we all sat around the dining room table and placed some cards. These girls were a lot of fun to be around. Sienna didn’t try anything on me which I was thankful for. I didn’t want to hurt any feelings tonight. She kept surprising us with different mixtures of alcohol. And each time she brought out a new drink we all tried it. I had to admit she was really good at what she did. We were getting close, not in a sexual way but I could see us becoming good friends. Chase and taylor on the other hand, well they were getting close in the other way. Flirty looks and touches here and there. I could tell they were getting handsy under the table. I could also tell it was making Sienna uncomfortable. She kept leaving to go to the kitchen or the bathroom. I was trying to make her laugh and not make things any more awkward than they were, we joked around and laughed, sang along to the music that was playing. We soon noticed that Chase and Taylor were sneaking off to retire to Chase’s bedroom. Great. Neither of the girls were in any condition to leave or drive. And getting a cab at this hour would be hard.
I felt Sienna take my hand in hers. She looked up at me. She smiled, could tell it was a forced smile. I was passed the point of being buzzed.I was drunk now. I was thinking of Hailey, about the kiss we shared earlier, about how soft her skin is, about her perfect body, and about the way I wanted to take her. I felt myself stiffen at the thought. I opened my eyes, and for the briefest moment i saw her. Standing in front of me. So perfect. I wanted to kiss her. To feel her lips against mine. I leaned in to kiss her, our lips met. But it wasn’t the same as before there was n heat, no electricity. It was just a kiss. Her hands went to my neck, she wrapped her arms around my neck to deepen the kiss. This wasn’t right, this was desperate and needy. I kissed her back. Wanting it to feel like how it felt earlier.

“Oh my god- shit! I’m so sorry..” I hear her voice, I opened my eyes to see Sienna standing in front of me. I look to my left to see Hailey standing in her pjs. Shock and embarrassment written across her face. Fuck .

“Hailey-” i started to go to her. I wanted to be with her, to hold her. She shook her head, I could visibly see the tears this time. She kept shaking her head, for every step i took towards her she took away from me. Until she just turned around all together and ran back to her room shutting the door.

“Fuck!” i grabbed my hair in my hands. Walking over to the couch sitting down. A string of profanities leaving my mouth. Sienna was just standing there awestruck. She eventually came and sat beside me.
“Look, I’m sorry Sienna, I- I just can’t..” it’s not you I swear.. It just-” she placed her finger on my lips to stop me. She wiped a tear from my face. I didn’t even know that i was crying.
“It’s ok Link, dont worry. I get it. And to tell you the truth, I don’t want this either” she gestured to her and i. I looked over at her, she smiled awkwardly. Wow, didn’t see that coming

“No- no no no!” she laughed
“Don’t think it’s because I don’t like you or anything Link, you’re a great guy.. But uhm- I’m a lesbian.. Well i think I am.” i must have looked as confused as i thought because she laughed at me again. I joined in with her i don’t know why. I just felt like laughing.

“How do you only think you’re a lesbian? Am i that bad of a kisser or something?” I joked with her. We were both sitting on the couch now drinking some water. She was explaining to me how she thinks she’s a lesbian.

“Well, I’ve had lots of boyfriends and had sex with a few different guys, but a few weeks ago me and this uh- this girl we got drunk and we kissed. And it was so different, i felt different when it happened. It was one of those kisses that you remember, and think about over and over again you know?” she laughed sadly. I could tell she was hurting. I looked at her, i studied her face. She was a pretty girl. Like a porcelain doll. Black hair and ivory skin, brown dove eyes.
She looked up at me.
“So what about you and Hailey then?” she wiggled her eyebrows.
“Shh, don’t say it too loud, her brother.. He uh- he doesn’t know. Not that there is much to know. We just kissed.. Twice. But god it was perfect. I’ve known Hailey her whole life and the past few months when I came back from school and saw who she had grown to become i can’t shake the feelings i get whenever i’m around her. She’s innocent, we almost went further today and i had to stop us. And i think she took it the wrong way. I fucked up god i really did.” Sienna put her hand on my shoulder.
“She is stunning i will give her that. She seems really sweet too, i can see why you would be so taken with her. Not my type though i’m more into brunettes” she blushed. That’s when it hit me.
“It was taylor wasn’t it.. The girl you kissed when you were drunk..” i whispered to her. She looked at me and i could tell just from her facial features that i was right. She looked down and i could tell she was upset. I put my arm around her shoulders and pulled her close to me. She rested her head on my shoulder. We both just sat there completely silent.

“You should goo talk to her, explain things to her. You can even tell her i’m into chicks if you need to..” she laughed and bumped her shoulder against mine.
“But seriously you need to talk to her before it’s too late and she hates you, at least one of us deserves to be happy..”
I looked over at her, she was sad, her heart was hurting. I hugged her. She started to cry on my shoulder and i let her. She needed a friend right now and i was going to be there for her. She cried for another ten minutes before composing herself.
" common now go! I’ll sleep in your room and keep the door/ locked so Chase won’t know that you’re actually with his baby sis.. Well talk in the morning ok?” she stood up and help out her hand.
“Thanks Sienna. I really owe you one” I replied to her scratching the back of my head.
“Call me Si, all my friends to” she smiled at me as we walked down the hall. I showed her to my room and gave her a shirt to sleep in. before i left the room she gave me a kiss on the cheek.
“Sweet dreams Link, make up with her will you please”
