The next morning I woke up to someone yelling my name and in a room that wasn’t mine. I realized that I was still in Kason’s room. “Amara Lynn Simms where are you?” Valerie yelled downstairs, I needed to get my keys back from my friends.
“I forgot to tell you that Valerie called yesterday.” Kason said pulling me closer to his chest.
“You tell me this now!”
“Shh she won’t find us if we stay quiet.” I sighed in agreement not wanting to get out of bed. I could hear her coming up the stairs but knew she would go to my room first before looking in the others. When I thought she would give up the room door opened to reveal my beautiful best friend. At five foot five, she was a fierce and took shit from no one. And although her hair may be blonde she never fit the stereotype. Working in one of the best law firms in the state of New York. Val had made a name for herself and planned to start her own law firm soon.
“There you are, what the hell.”
“It’s rude to come to people’s houses unannounced.” I glared at her pulling the covers over my head. Kason chuckled getting out of the bed wearing only his underwear going into the bathroom. Thank god we managed to put some clothes on before we fell asleep or it would’ve been awkward. Val stared at his tattooed back for a second before turning her attention back to me.
“Don’t get upset with me, I called yesterday. Kason answered and said he was going to tell you to pick me up from the airport this morning. I had to call an Uber and you know how much I hate those.”
“I’m sorry Kason never told me. I know you told me you were visiting but it slipped my mind and then we got preoccupied yesterday.”
“I see that. When you two finish doing the nasty call me so that we can have lunch later. Which you are going to be paying for. We have a lot of things to discuss.” She left and Kason walked out of the bathroom.
“I changed my mind I like her.” He smiled liking her idea that we were in the middle of having sex.
“Shut up and come take a shower with me.” I got out of the bed and went into the bathroom.
“Ooh shower sex my favorite.”
“I’m still sore.” I said adjusting the water to the right temperature.
“Don’t worry baby girl I got you.” He said lifting me up so that I could wrap my legs around his waist.
And boy did he, I was a bit late for work because I had to fix my hair but it was worth it. I decided to take Valarie out to lunch as a attempt to apologize for not picking her up from the airport.
“How was it?”
“We’ve had sex before, but this was different. Something felt different between us.”
“This time you guys are trying to have a baby not trying to relieve stress or fuck for fun so its going to feel different.”
“That’s not it, it was almost like we were making love.”
“Are you saying that you might be in love with your best friend?”
“I don’t know. I’m thinking it’s the hormones I’ve been taking or I’m coming to the realization that I have feelings for my best friend.”
“I’d wait to see if you are, I’ve been rooting on you two to get together for years. Hey isn’t that Kason over there?” I looked to where Valerie was pointing and there was Kason sitting a few tables away from us with a woman. They seemed to know each other well because the woman leaned in close to Kason. You could tell that she either wanted to or had slept with him by how she glared at their waitress.
“It is, he told me he was at the gym.” I said confused why he would lie to me about his plans for the day.
“He might’ve had a last minute business meeting that he needed to attend. Wait who’s that he’s leaving with?” She asked pointing to the woman that was clinging to his arm.
“I don’t know act normal they’re coming over here.”
“Hello ladies.” Kason said giving us both a friendly smile.
“Hi Kason, who’s your friend?” Valarie said cutting to the chase like she always does.
“Melina this is Valarie and that’s Amara.” Melina looked at me with recognition in her eyes and gave me one of the fakest smiles I had ever seen in my life.
“You’re the famous Amara, I’ve heard a lot about you.” she said in an happy tone. As if she knew if she said something bad about me Kason would never give her the time of day.
“Oh I haven’t heard a lot about you but it’s nice to meet one of Kason’s friends.”
Valaries coughed, “Petty.” But I rolled my eyes at her.
“We’re not friends, we’re much more than that actually.”
“No we-” I cut Kason off wanting to know more about this woman that thought she was Kason’s girlfriend. And was unaware that we slept together.
“So how do you know Kacer?”
“We met at a photoshoot and have been inseparable ever since.”
“Oh, so what brings you two to this restuarant.”
“We’re out celebrating our anniversary.”
“A year of dating, he’s been so busy lately and I get it being a huge boxer and all. But he always manages to treat me like a princess whenever we go out and spend time together.”
“That’s funny I’ve never seen you around before.”
“We like to keep things private between us. The media can be a pain.”
I looked at her surprised then at Kason, before he could say anything I left.
“No fuck you, what was I? Your replacement whenever you couldn’t get with your girlfriend. I trusted you and you played me. An entire fucking year you’ve been with her and you couldn’t tell me. I thought we told each other everything.”
“Like how you were honest about everything that happened between you and Marco.”
“Don’t you dare throw that back in my face. I didn’t tell you because I didn’t want you to get upset and do something stupid.”
“I’m sorry I shouldn’t have brought that up.”
“You’re right you shouldn’t have. Why didn’t you tell me?”
“Melina and I are not dating, you know how I am about relationships. Sure we’d see each other, chill, fuck then that was it. She’s the one that thought we were an item, I took her out today to end things. She said that anniversary thing to make you jealous.”
“You better not be lying to me Kason Daniel or I swear to God you will regret it.”
“I would never hurt or lie to you unless I knew it would upset you. You know too many of my dark secrets.” He said giving me a smirk. I laughed thinking about all the embarrassing moments we’d had together. As much as I wanted to stay mad at him I couldn’t because he was telling me the truth. He was about to kiss me but I saw Melina looking at us, pissed.
“Your girlfriend is looking for you.”
“I’ll see you at home?”
“Mhmm.” He kissed my cheek before leaving. I waved at them but only got a glare from Melina
“Are you fucking her?” Melina asked as I drove her back to her hotel room. I had no I idea how she managed to stay around for so long because whenever we were together all we did was have sex. I never took her out even when she begged me to. And only bought her things to stop her complaining about me not wanting to people to know about us. Which was partly true but I knew I needed to end things. After last night I thought a lot about my relationship with Amara and I wanted to be more than the father of her child.
Even before we started agreed to be friends I wanted more. But by the time I was ready to she had told me about Marco. I still wanted to be her friend so I supported her. Despite my hatred for Marco and now that I have the chance I’m not going to wait.
“Are you fucking that fat bitch?”
“First she’s not fat, second watch who you call a bitch, and third what Amara and I do are none of your business. We are not dating Melina.”
“Yes we are, we’ve been beating around the bush for the past year and it’s time we go public with our relationship Kason. It’d be good publicity for the both of us.”
“Is that what you want, publicity. I am not a career booster and you are not one for me. I’m done with us, whatever the hell us it. I need to focus on boxing and being with you is messing with that.”
“So you’re breaking up with me?”
“Yes,I already had your shit sent to your house and your room covered for the weekend.” I said pulling into the parking lot of her hotel.
“You are a jackass.” She slapped me but it felt like a baby hitting my face
“I don’t care Melina.”
“So you know, I dated Marco and he is a much better fuck than you.”
“If that’s what you need to tell your self.” I scuffed and started thinking about Amara and I last night. If I needed clarification that would be enough for me to know I am better than Marco. In more ways than one. After I dropped her off to her hotel I went home. I showered and started to plan something nice for Amara.
I felt bad for pressuring her last night and didn’t mean to but what happened, happened and now we had to wait and see. I was putting the finishing touches on her surprise when she walked in.
“What’s all this?”
“It’s my way of saying sorry for pressuring you last night and for not telling you about Melina.”
“You didn’t pressure me, I enjoyed it a lot and so did you. And I’m over the Melina thing, what happened to your face?”
“She slapped me then told me she was fucking Marco. Had the nerve to say he was better than me.”
“Well he definitely is not and come here she scratched you.”
“You’re very beautiful.”
“How much wine have you been drinking?” She smiled at me.
“None, I’m serious you are one the most beautiful women I have in my life including our mothers of course.”
“What did you do?”
“Nothing, last night felt different. It made me think about what it’d be like if we actually dated. Besides bomb ass sex, we’d be great together. You know me like the back of your hand and I know you the same. I’ve been thinking about it for a while now.” I looked her in her eyes showing her how serious I was.
“Kason I felt the same way but are we ready to take make such a big change. May agreeing to father my baby makes you feel this way. I don’t want you to feel like I want a relationship with you. Especially if it is because of the baby. It would hurt me to much if you broke my heart.” Before I could answer her the doorbell rang. I knew it was late and we weren’t expecting anyone I went to answer it. Not before I pulled Amara close and I kissed her to show her how I was feeling. There was something in the kiss that confirmed my feelings from last night. I was in love with my best friend and wanted nothing more than to be the man she deserves.
“I’ll meet you upstairs so we can finish this.” She giggled at my assertiveness but went upstairs to do as I asked. If I couldn’t get her to give me an answer I planned on fucking it out of her. I went to the door with a huge smile on my face but it faded when I saw who it was behind the door.
“You’ve got some balls showing up here man.” Marco Garcia, the ugliest man I’d ever met was standing at the door. I had a few good inches on him but he weighed a few pounds more than I did. I always used that to my advantage because he hit slower than I did. I wanted to punch the smug look off his face but wanted to know why he was here. Especially after all that Amara told me happened between them. I owed him an ass kicking but knew he was going to be my next opponent so I’d save it for the ring.
“Shut up Miller where is my girl?”
“She’s not your girl anymore, now leave before I kick your ass again but for free this time Garcia.”
“I promise you won’t win like last time. Now leave so I can have some alone time with my lady.”
“No, I’m not leaving her with your ugly ass.”
I guess I was taking to long because Amara came downstairs in her robe looking for me. “Babe who’s at the-” at the sight of him she passed out, I caught her in enough time so she didn’t hit her head. So much for wanting to ask her to be my girlfriend tonight.
