Chapter 34

If you’re expecting a guy to leave your bed in the early morning, you should set the alarm. But I didn’t do that, neither did Drew. So we had been wakened up by Lily’s angry voice.

“What the hell?! Rebecca!”

I sat on the bed, startled, rubbing my eyes. Drew’s arm was on my hips, and he didn’t even open his eyes. I tried to focus and saw Lily standing in the doorframe with a frown on her face and arms folded over her chest.

“Good morning, Lil... What time is it?”

“It’s almost nine. But don’t you dare to change the subject! What is he doing in your bed?”

“Sleeping?”

“Are you fucking kidding me? You told me you wouldn’t sleep with Drew, and now he’s here?”

“Too loud...” Drew also sat on my bed. I looked him over; he was so adorable with his sleepy eyes and messed hair. Damn him. Even like that, he was sexy.

“Lily, nothing happened! I swear!”

“Ha! You’re expecting me to believe in that?”

“For God’s sake! I am so tired of this! We didn’t sleep... Well, we didn’t have sex with Drew. And I won’t discuss this issue anymore. I am telling you the truth.”

“Lil, we’re adults, and we do what we want. Tonight, nothing happened. I barged in Becca’s room and cuddled with her for the whole night. Besides, do you really think that I would allow her to put on her clothes back?” Drew was confident in his words, adding his mischievous smile in the end.

“But...” She started doubting.

“You’re in the next room to this, right?” She only nodded at his question. “Did you hear something? Becca isn’t the quietest girl if you know what I mean.”

“Shut up, Drew!” I glared at him, but he only laughed. Then he leaned to me and kissed me on the cheek, engulfing me in such a familiar scent of his body. His lips lingered on my face, and it felt so good.

“Why are you still here?” Logan’s voice was ahead of him, but only the moment after, he entered my room. His eyes focused on me and Drew on the bed immediately. “What are you doing in Becca’s room?” He looked directly at Drew.

“I slept here.” He answered not even bothered a little, while I was uncomfortable. My good mood started to disappear.

“Just slept?” Logan narrowed his eyes, stepping into my room further.

“Yes. But why does it bother you so much?” Drew stood up from the bed and took a few steps closer to Logan.

“Guys...” Lily looked nervous. She quickly moved to Logan and took his hand in hers.

“Say it. I am fucking tired of you, Logan. You’re still with Melanie, and yet you’re acting like Becca belongs to you.”

“And you still with Phoebe, and yet you spent the night in bed with another girl.”

“Drew? Logan? We wanted to go hiking. It’s time for us to have breakfast and leave...” Lily tugged her brother’s hand. He didn’t move a muscle. He and Drew were locked in staring competition. I was just sitting on my bed with my eyes wide open in total shock.

“Okay. If the issue here is about this, I will call Phoebe right now. I never wanted to date her. She just was a convenient replacement of what I wanted but was too scared to admit.”

“No one deserves to know about the break up over the phone...” I was surprised myself, but I finally was able to find my voice back. “Could you all please leave my room? I want to change.”

Without another word, Logan pulled his hand from Lily’s and rushed out of the room. Drew followed him, and Lily was the last to leave.

“You know what, Rebecca? I like you, I do. But what you did to my brother and Drew... It’s just horrible. They were best friends since childhood. They never fought over the same girl, never. They always supported each other. And this? I fucking hate it!”

Lily stormed out of my room, slamming the door behind her back. Wow. I wasn’t planning it, and she knew that. I did nothing to make them fall for me. It just happened. And it was suddenly my fault? Shit! I got dressed in sweatpants, sweatshirt, and sneakers. I didn’t care what I was wearing from this point. I went down to the kitchen; Kate and Tim were lounging on the couch in the living room. Logan and Lily were in the kitchen, and they were talking in hushed voices. Drew wasn’t here. I held my head high and walked to the kitchen. Kate smiled and waved at me. Okay, I guess she had no idea about what happened in my room.

I went to the fridge, opened it, and took drinking yogurt and orange. When I turned to leave the kitchen, I heard Logan’s voice.

“Rebecca. You need to eat. We will go to the forest, and it will be a long trip. You will need your strength.” I looked at him. He cared about me. My heart was melting from this. I smiled at him.

“I will be okay, Logan. Promise.”

“Yeah... Like your promises ever meant something.” Lily wasn’t even looking at me. Her words were like a slap. I was worried about how I will survive this trip to the lake with Drew and Logan. At this moment, it looked like the main problem will be Lily.

“Lil, leave her alone. It’s not your business anyway, what is going on between the three of us.” Drew entered the kitchen with a serious expression on his face. He was wearing jeans, a hoodie, and a bomber.

“He’s right.” Logan nodded to Lily. “Drew, are we ready to leave?”

“10 minutes.”

Lily glanced between Drew and Logan. They were acting normal. I turned around and walked to the living room. I drank my yogurt and ate an orange, staring through the window. Kate silently joined me.

“Hey. Why do I have a feeling that Tim and I missed something?”

“Kind of... Drew slept in my room. Nothing happened.” I hurriedly said to her. “Lily walked on us, and she was angry with me until Logan showed up at my doorframe. Well, now she pissed at me because her brother and his best friend argued because of me...”

“Oh...” Kate was surprised. “Well... It was bound to happen. Logan and Drew, they both like you. That’s all for it. Just competition over a stunning girl.”

“She thinks that their arguments are my fault...”

“What? This is stupid.”

“It is like it is.”

“Girls, we’re leaving.” Tim called to us. He was standing with Logan and Drew near the doorframe. Lily was already outside the house.

“Everything will be okay. I have a feeling.”

Kate winked at me and walked to her boyfriend. He put his hand on her waist, pressing her to his side. I was so happy for her. She never was successful with boys. Well, not this word correctly, she had many, but she never was in a serious relationship. I hoped that this time would be different.
