Josh’s Location: Lying on his bed, texting Ian.
I: What’s up, man?
J: I’m fucked.
I: What do you mean?
J: Okay, what if you have a female best friend and you guys decided to play around one day.
I: Play around as in?
J: Sexting. Dirty talks.
J: And after that, it’s like you keep thinking about it. But you know you don’t like her that way, but it’s like you are suddenly addicted to the thought of you guys doing it quite often.
I: Lol. Are you fooling around with Lex?
J: What? No. I’m not. At all.
I: 😏I knew it was about time you two got dirty. There is no way a boy and a girl can remain as just friends.
J: I don’t like Lex that way. I am certain.
I: But you like sexting her?
J: Yeah. It’s complicated. The feeling I got while we were doing it was strange. In a good way, and the crazy thing is we didn’t even go all the way in because she suddenly asked me to stop. But I got so turned on I had to take a shower right after.
I: 😏So what do you plan on doing?
J: I want us to do it again if she’s down for it you know? But do you think that will mess with our friendship?
I: Mm. No, I don’t think so. Well, if Lexie doesn’t have feelings for you.
J: She doesn’t. Trust me. We both know how weird it’d be if we were to develop feelings for each other.
I: Just don’t start doing those friends with benefits shit as I see in the movies.
J: I’d never sleep with her.
I: But that’s what sexting leads to. Sexts can only satisfy your needs for a short amount of time. Soon, you’re going to want to experience the real thing.
J: Noooo, that’s just weird.
I: So is sending naughty messages to your ‘best friend.’😂🤷♂️
J: Fuck, you’re right😂 What do you suggest I do?
I: Go for it. A little fun will cause no damage. Just don’t let the poor girl fall for you. You know you have Sabrina.
J: Yeah and I love her.
I: 🙄We know Josh, you tell me and Derrick every day.
J: 😊She’s my world.
I: You can stop now.
J: We are getting married.
I: I’m gonna block you.
(Lexie is chuckling along with her sister-Lola-at a comedy being aired on her Tv. Her phone vibrates and pulls her attention away from the blue screen as she reaches for the device beside of her. The color spreads across her face when she discovers that it’s a message from Josh.)
J: I miss you.
(Lexie takes a deep breath. Josh is not aware of the power his words have over her. Whenever he says the words ‘I miss you’ or ’I love you’, her brain immediately becomes a pile of mush, and she thinks it’s scary how a person can have so much control over another. Josh can literally make or break her with his words. She wouldn’t be surprised if he can mind-control her with just the usage of those phrases.)
L: I miss you too.
J: How much do you miss me?😋
(Her sister glances up at her and Lexie shifts so that her cellphone is hidden away from her view.)
L: A lot, Josh.
J: Me too, I’m cold and wish you were in bed with me. Both of us...under the duvet😏
(Josh is getting out of hand. That’s what Lexie thinks. She has no idea how she unleashed this beast within him, and she has no idea how to tie it back up. This may be fun for Josh, but it isn’t fun for her.)
J: Are you alone?
(She glances at her sister again, who is now focusing on the Tv, cuddling next to her big sister on the warm bed. She has no intention of returning to her room anytime soon.)
L: No, my sister is in my room. We are watching TV.
J: Why do you think? Lol
J: Make a guess.
L: Give me a clue?
J: Lol okay. Here’s your clue: I want Round 2. You made me high this morning Lex. Finish what you started😏
“Will I ever know how it feels to hold you close? And have you tell me whichever road I choose, you’ll go. I don’t know why I’m scared ’cause I’ve been here before. Every feeling, every word, I’ve imagined it all.” —Adele.
