Chapter 23: Drunk Angel
“Damn” Daniel breathed with his eyes fixed on Rachel. “I think I’ve got a boner” he groaned and I laughed. My eyes were fixed on Angel who was busy sexy dancing with Ally. That girl was definitely something else.
“Dude, your girl’s drunk” Justin nudged me and I ignored his comment about Angel being my girl. I watched as Angel reached for another can of beer. Ted reached the stereo and turned the volume down making the girls glare daggers at him.
“Can’t you see we were dancing?” Ally asked and flipped her hair in a Diva way.
“We were dancing” Angel pouted and leant against Ally for support. The boys, Rachel and myself weren’t drunk. Well, Ted was becoming a little bit tipsy and I was pretty sure that the guys were going to get drunk soon. I watched Angel pout, sticking her lower lip out making her look totally adorable and I clenched my jaw as my thought drifted to whatever happen in the kitchen.
No! Restrict yourself from going there! Don’t wanna end up like Daniel.
* Two Hours Later *
“Colton Haynes! I love you!” Angel screamed and I stared at her in confusion. Colton?
“Who’s Colton?” I questioned and right now I didn’t care whether I sounded jealous or not.
“Jealous much?” Daniel joked and glared at him.
“Colton is my boyfriend!” she exclaimed, making my eyes widened.
“You don’t have a boyfriend” I said and pulled her by my side. She moved away.
“I do!” she pouted.
“Imaginary one” I mumbled and she glared at me, trying to stand straight.
“He is real and hot!” she said and the guys scoffed.
“He’s not” Justin said before smirking. “I am” he continued and wiggled his eyes at Angel.
“You know that guy?” I asked in disbelief. Angel loved a guy?
“Everyone knows him!” Daniel exclaimed. “He’s popular” he scoffed. “And it seems like even your girl has fallen for him” he said and shook his head in pity.
“I love him!” Angel exclaimed again. It annoyed me. I clenched my jaw and took a deep breath.
“Dude, calm down” Justin chuckled. “That’s an actor she’s talking about” and as soon as I registered his words, I sighed in relief making the guys chuckled.
“Angel! Come on, you’re drunk!” I exclaimed and took a deep breath when she only laughed and flipped her middle finger at me.
Ladies and gentlemen, I introduce to you the girl who know how to piss off boys.
“Party pooper!” She exclaimed and jumped on the couch. She was laughing as she jumped on the couch, like Lily usually does. Ted, Rachel and Ally were dead drunk and Justin and Daniel took them to the rooms upstairs. Now I had to deal to Angel. Daniel and Justin were sitting on the floor and were watching Angel in amusement.
“Rachel and Ally are sleeping, why don’t you go to sleep too?” I questioned and hoped that she would finally listen.
“Nope” she replied instantly and I pinched the bridge of my nose in annoyance.
“I’m going to sleep” Daniel announced and walked away. Justin smirked at me and followed Daniel. Angel told them to sleep in the guest room. I walked to where Angel was jumping and held her by her waist. I pulled her to me so that she was standing in front of me. She gave me a little innocent smile and leant against my shoulder.
“You have the same face as him” she slurred and I watched her in confusion.
“Who?” I asked with interest and watched as she sat on the couch. I sat by her side.
“Carter!” she exclaimed. “The soft bad boy” she giggled and I bite my lips at her adorable face. “He’s something else!” she exclaimed and I smiled.
“How?” I asked wanting to know what she really think of me.
“I’m tired” she told me and pushed me a little bit so that I was at the end of the couch. I froze when she laid her head on my lap and soon she was dozing off.
“Princess” I called but my voice cracked a bit.
“Shhh!” she turned to look at me. “Only Ace has the right to call me princess” she spoke and again, I smiled at the beautiful girl. Suddenly she sat up again. I groaned when I realized that she was far from going to sleep. “I’m hungry” she pouted and my eyes drifted to her pink lips. She stood up and walked to the kitchen, tripping on own foot or colliding against the wall. I chuckled and followed behind her. When I reached the kitchen, I saw her with a knife in her hand. She was looking at it as if it was the most interesting thing ever.
“What are you doing?” I asked and her head snapped to mine. She blinked several times and put the knife on the counter.
“Ryan used to cut me with a knife just like this one” she commented as if it was normal. I clenched my jaw at the name of that fucker. If I could only get my hand on him. “Make me f-food!” she hiccups and I stared at her in disbelief.
“Why would i?” I asked with a smirk and crossed my arms over my chest.
“Why you gotta be so rude?” she asked and then her face lightened. “Don’t you know I’m human too? Can I have your daughter for the rest of my life? Say yes say yes cause I need to know!” she started singing and even though she’s drunk, her voice was amazing.
“You’ve got a beautiful voice” I told her and she giggled.
“That’s what my mom always told me” she said and she rose her head, staring at the ceiling. “Right, mom?” she questioned and laughed. But there was no humor in this laughter. I could sensed the pain.
“Angel” I mumbled her name and wrapped my arms around her. Soon, I could hear her sobs and I took a deep breath. “Don’t cry” I pleaded and realized that I should keep in mind not to get Angel drunk again.
“They were coming to watch my final! They were rushing to see me win! I was so angry when I didn’t see them in the hall and I didn’t even realize that maybe they’ve got an accident! That’s why aunt Rosy hates me. They were coming to watch me” she rambled and I closed my eyes.
“You didn’t know” I whispered and lifted her up the ground. I put her on the counter and I felt her tears on my shirt. A few minutes later, she felt asleep with her head on my shoulder. I slide my hand under her legs and picked her up. I walked up the stairs, holding on her tightly making sure she won’t fall. Once I reached her room, I kicked the door open and walked in. Angel opened her eyes slightly when I put her on the bed. She was beautiful. I leant and kissed her forehead and just as I was about to walk away, she grabbed my wrist. I turned to look at her, her eyes were still closed.
“Don’t go” she pleaded sleepily as one tear rolled down her cheek. I sat on her bed and wiped her tear away.
“Why are you crying?” I asked and she opened her eyes a bit.
“I’m weak” she whispered and closed her eyes again.
“No, you’re not” I whispered back and gave her a kiss on her forehead.
“Thank you for staying” she said and I lifted her blanket over the two of us. After a few minutes, she fell asleep. I stated at her and realized that she was strong. Even though she got a problem coping with all these bullshit, she still fights. Her parents and her little brother died, she had an abusive ex and she has an aunt who’d do anything to being her down. I put my hand on her hair. She had soft hair. I played with her hair and suddenly, she turned to my side and threw her arm over me. I froze when she hugged me and rested her head on my chest. I took a deep breath and wrapped my hand around her, bringing her body close to mine. Slowly, I fell asleep too.
