I had called Brax, about if Autumn could come, since he said a few of his friends might be over and he said okay. I don’t think he could ever hurt me, but just in case, I wanted someone I knew to be there. As I walked up to his apartment, I knocked, hearing voices and screaming from the other side. I looked up to see Brax, staring with his vibrant,scintillating green eyes.
“HI! I thought you would ditch out last minute, due to my criminal background.” Brax said, teasing me for my innocents. I mean its good to have some, but not, since well you never know what will happen.
" Hey, no Brax, I am not that much of an asshole as you make me seem.”
" Just saying!” Brax said in a high pitch voice, that made me laugh.
" I love your voice and your laugh, it makes me comfortable and makes it easier to talk to such an annoying human.” Brax said, teasing me once again
" Oh stop! Also Autumn might come a bit later, since she is in traffic and has a fashion set up.”
" Well more time alone with you works for me.” He said, giving me a sly smile
" Oh Brax what am I going to do with you!”
" Help me in prison when I get hurt and buy me food.” He said winking
I rolled my eyes and said,” Well can we maybe get out of the cold, I am freezing out here!”
" I don’t know can we?”
" Yes!” I waked inside, but Brax grabbed me and set me down back outside.
" I am cold though, please.”
“Fine! Would you like dinner and something to drink?”
" Yes please, I am starving”
Brax nodded, carrying me to a couch. As he laid me down, he grabbed a bunch of blankets, underneath the cushion, covering me in crochet,cotton, and random patched blankets. As I sat, he unloaded all the groceries and handed me my dinner. I wasn’t really sure what it was, but it smelled amazing.
" What is this?”
" Its Chipotle Chicken Rice Bowls, from Hello Fresh.”
" Sounds Good!”
Braxton nodded, moving my feet to lie on his lap. I then moved to sit up and sit next to him.
“Sorry I didn’t mean to take up the whole space, but how have you been lately!”
" You weren’t taking up the whole space, your feet were just in the way of the part that wasn’t covered by your big body. Lately I have been thinking of you and hanging out with friends. What about you? Laying old tattooed men with bald spots?”
" Wow thanks!” I said sarcastically and then went on, ” No I haven’t been laying old men, but I did lay this one tattooed muscular guy, who had blonde hair and a body full of tattoos. Also that is good you have friends, I thought you never would have any!”
Braxton gave me a irritated look and said,” Well I don’t want you laying other men in their, that will get you fired like our last one and second yes I do have friends.”
" I was joking about la-”
" I know, just don’t please.”
" I won’t.... Sorry” I said, looking down in embarrassment. Why did you say that Aella? I don’t know why, but tears filled my eyes. I could feel my face turning a shade of red.I didn’t mean to make Braxton feel that way, a way of having to protect me from sadistic men.
Braxton looked my way and I just looked away. As I felt the couch shift, I turned to Braxton and saw him with a gun towards Autumn.
" What are you doing Brax! That is Autumn!”
" Oh sorry, I didn’t know if she was trying to...”
" NO! Even if she was, why would you start pointing guns when you don’t know! Tell me honestly, were you about to shoot her?”
" No, I was just...”
" No just stop there. If I am going to hang out with you, no pointing guns randomly, unless you see the other person with some type of weapon. I just can’t..” I couldn’t finish my sentence I was crying from earlier, but also just fear, fear that if I where to come over he would point a gun at my head.
" Aww Beautiful.” Braxton ran over to me, dropping the gun on the counter to embrace me. I leaned into his chest, some how I felt safe. Brax kissed the top of my head whispering sorry into my ear. Brax started to look at Autumn, who’s face looked like she saw a ghost.
" I know he just pointed a gun at my head and then you guys started screaming at each other, but how the fuck do I find this cute? Also who else will be here? No drugs right?”
" My friends Elio,Christian, and my brother Julian will be here. Also I am sorry for my actions, I should have never pointed a gun at your head, I was just worried, but that doesn’t mean I am a complete psycho. So no drugs this time.” Brax stated
" Fuck I thought I was going to be snorting real shit if I was at a prisoners house!” Autumn joked, laughing at her own joke, I started laughing along too.
" Nope no shit here.” Brax said joking.
We heard another knock at the door and Braxton yelled, ” IT’S OPEN!!”
In came three young men about Braxton and I’s age. They wore sleeves of tattoos like Brax. Autumn looked at me with excitement, I knew she would be interested.
" Elio, Christian, Julian, this is Aella and Autumn her friend.”
We all shook hands, introducing ourselves, we began to socialize and drink. Autumn was doing shots with Brax’s friends, while Brax and I sat on the couch with drinks and snacks.
" You wanna put something on the tv?“Braxton asked
“Sure, you can pick.”
" Ok, does The Princess Bride work?”
" I love that movie, but you like that?”
" Yes, stop judging.” Braxton said with a smile. I smiled back, sitting up straight with a bag of talkies and White Claw on the side. I felt a bit dizzy, but I was fine. Braxton laid his head on my lap, rubbing my leg. I looked down to see in minutes he was passed out. I never thought he was the fall asleep at a party type.
" WANT A SHOT AELLA!” Autumn said with a squeaky voice.
" No thanks.” As Autumn kept drinking and flirting I drifted off to sleep on the couch.
