Not giving up
When I say he’s been a little inappropriate with me, a girl who has a boyfriend, it’s an understatement. And it’s only been a week since I’ve been back with Axel.
I start making the coffee, in a little world of my own. I suddenly feel hand on my waist from behind me, Kai’s hands. I gasp, his boner digging into my ass as he stands behind me.
Why is he torturing me? I have a boyfriend. He needs to calm down.
“Great, you’re making coffee,” he says. He reaches around my shoulder, still with his body against my back, takes the coffee mug I made for myself and moves his mouth close to my ear. “Thanks, beautiful,” he whispers before trotting to the kitchen table.
I storm over to sit next to him, but he doesn’t look at me.
“We have a problem, Walker.” His dark eyes shift from his bruised hands to my face.
“Do we now?” he asks with a smirk on his face and a raised eyebrow.
“Yes, we do. I have a boyfriend-”
“As I am painfully aware,” he interrupts. I roll my eyes.
“Stop with the ‘beautiful’s and the touching and being close to me.”
“You’re the one who sat next to me.” I give him a deadly glare which makes him chuckle. “Lex, why should I stop? I don’t think you really want me to.”
“Because I have a boyfriend-”
“Give me another reason,” he interrupts again. “Any other reason. Tell me you don’t like me, that you’re not turned on by me. Tell me you don’t feel something for me. I know you ‘love’ him but you must feel something for me.”
I can’t tell him that I feel nothing for him, it isn’t true. But I’m with Axel again, I’m giving him a chance, my first love. He treated me badly in the past but this time is different. He’s clean, trying to do better, and I’m stronger. I huff in protest but he carries on before I can say something.
“You know, if he was a good guy or even a reformed guy, I would give him a chance and leave you alone. But he’s not good for you, you shouldn’t be with him. He’s the worst kind of person and he’ll never change. So I’m going to carry on doing what I’m doing, because we were going somewhere before he swanned in, and we still can. I’m going to flirt with you any chance I get.”
“Are you serious?” I ask in disbelief.
“You bet your little ass I’m serious.” I stare at him deadlier which on makes him grin. “You look all adorable when you’re mad.” I huff and storm away, but my temper rather calm.
He agitates me but I don’t get the same feeling I get with everyone else. With them, my rage boils inside, making me fear loss of control, but with him, it’s just... irritating.
I am surprised Matt hasn’t noticed Kai blatantly coming onto me any chance he gets but Matt isn’t on speaking terms with me. He’s still furious about Axel. Who knows what he would do if he found out about Kai?
Getting ready for school, I put on a pair of blue jeans with a grey over-sized sweater. When I walk down the drive, I’m pulled by the waist by a muscled figure who turns me around to face him.
“Kai!” I whack his chest but all he does is smirk at me. That fucking smirk.
“It’s a long way to school, Lex, and you are not walking it. Please get in the car,” he says, leading towards his car.
“Since you ask so nicely, no!” I scream as he lifts me off of the ground, throwing me over his shoulder and sits me in his car. He lifted me like I was nothing, I was just like one of his weights.
He slams the door, locks it then gets in on his side quick enough to stop me getting out. He pulls out of those drive faster than I can blink, and I sigh, crossing my arms over my chest.
“You do know what 'no' means, right?”
“Yeah. It’s just my hearing is a little off today, sweetheart.”
“Don’t call me sweetheart.”
“Sorry, did you say something? I couldn’t quite hear.” I hear him chuckle at my irritation and all I can do is try to put up with him for the duration of this car journey.
“Why do you continue to torture me?”
“A bit hypocritical, don’t you think? I mean, you were torturing me not long ago.”
“I was getting my own back for both of you telling me what to do, I didn’t ask you to constantly check me out.” Partially a lie but I'm making a point, okay? I never came onto him this strong.
“Well, think of this as my way of getting my own back on you and your dickhead of a boyfriend. I don’t ask you to constantly check me out either but you do.”
“I do not,” I state firmly and I hear his chuckles next to me again.
“It’s just adorable, fucking adorable,” he comments, laughing to himself. I groan internally, knowing this would be a long car ride.
“Anyway, where is Matt today?”
“He went into school early for a meeting with the principal and coach about the football team. You still not speaking to him?”
“He’s the one not speaking to me.”
“You can’t blame him. He feels like he knows nothing about his sister,” Kai remarks, looking over to me.
I gaze down at my hands, feeling guilty I didn’t say anything to Matt about everything that happened before. I didn't want him to feel guilty about it, though then I threw it in his face the moment I saw an opening. I don't want his pity and I also don't want his wrath.
He never wanted to know me. How could he blame me for not knowing? When I called him, he could tell I was not okay. He never asked about it though. Now he's surprised about the events that have unfolded.
I feel Kai’s hand grab mine, his eyes back on the road, and I decide to let his hand be. I like the feeling of him holding my hand.
"I'll always protect you, Alex. No matter what."
