Chapter 12: Sunday Not So Funday

Sunday morning I wake up earlier than I usually do on weekends. When I go downstairs, I realize I’m the first one up. So I decide to make toast. I may not be a good cook, but what could go wrong with making toast?

Or at least I’d like to say that…

The. Fucking. Toaster. Caught. On. Fire.

Just my luck…

I unplug the toaster carefully before throwing a towel over the flame, trying to put it out. Luckily is goes out easily, but not before the fire alarm goes off.

Great.

Levi and Silas both come running into the kitchen, both of them shirtless and only wearing their boxers.

They’re standing next to each other looking like damn Calvin Klein models.

Levi's standing thereshowing every bit of his six pack and his black boxers covered in pineapples- which would look stupid on anyone other than him but he makes them work. Then there’s Silas with his more lean and slender body and dark purple boxers that rest dangerously low on his hips.

My face must have caught on fire, because it’s fire trucking hot in here all of a sudden.

I advert my eyes immediately. “Idiots. Don’t run around looking so indecent.” I grumble.

“Are you okay?” Levi says at the same time as Silas saying, “Like what you see, Rin?”

Priorities.

“Yes. I’m fine, Levi.” I tell him. I then sigh before saying to Silas, “Shut up and go put some clothes on, you pervert.”

Both boys go to change. Levi comes back in clothes first. He then starts to make breakfast after reprimanding me for being too careless.

Not long after, Silas walks into the kitchen wearing jeans but no shirt.

I make a face at him. “Put a shirt on, you weirdo.” I mumble, mostly joking.

Silas laughs, but ignores me as he sits down at the table, waiting for Levi to finish cooking.

After Levi finishes cooking pancakes and sausage we sit down to eat.

Silas miraculously finds a shirt after breakfast. Thank god for that one.

Around twelve pm we leave the house to go meet up with Levi and Silas’ friends at the town’s only movie theater.

Three of Levi’s teammates show up. Six of Silas’ friends- almost all female- show up as well.

To my dismay Colby shows up too. I didn’t know him and Silas were friends? Go figure. Creeps stick together.

Somehow in the seating arrangement I still end up sandwiched between the twins.

I’m suddenly in a bad mood even though we’re about to watch a horror movie and I love horror movies.

Throughout the movie, Silas keeps pretending to be scared so he can touch me, which we both know he’s faking. It’s so comical though that I can’t help but laugh. Every time I laugh at Silas, Levi shushes me, and glares at us both. I whisper an apology, but I feel bad the rest of the movie.

At the end of the movie Levi and Silas invite everyone back to my house without asking for permission which annoys me to no end, but I don’t say anything.

I especially don’t want Colby at my house, but what can I go? I’m not about to make a scene about it.

Once we’re at my house we put on some music and hang out in the living room. The five chicks hang all over Silas and Colby even though they don’t pay much attention to them. Levi talks with his buddies from the team.

I feel kinda alone and by myself. I endure it though as I sit at the edge of the couch, just humming to the music. After a while I get up to go to the bathroom.

After going to the bathroom I head to my room, wanting to calm down a bit since I feel overwhelmed with the amount of people in my house- even though they’re all pretty much ignoring me and doing as they please even though it’s not their house.

As I turn to go into my room someone grabs my arm, turns me, and pulls me to them.

My face rests against someone’s chest. I freak out at first, struggling to get out of the hold. “Let go of me!” I yell out.

The person lets go, but because I’m clumsy I end up falling backwards on the floor.

When I look up I see Silas.

“I’m sorry. I didn’t mean to scare you.” He says quietly. “I just- I thought you didn’t look okay. Like you’re stressed or something. Did you want me to tell everyone to leave? I guess we shouldn’t have told everyone they could come here without checking with you first.”

I stare at him, completely not expecting Silas of all people to be rational and understanding. I’d expect this from Levi, but never Silas. Yet Silas is the one here saying exactly what Levi should have said.

“It’s fine. I don’t want to be a buzz kill. I was just going to de-stress in my room for a bit since I figured no one would miss me.” I tell him.

Silas shakes his head at me. “I’d miss you.” He says.

I roll my eyes. “You have five girls waiting for you.” I remind him.

“So what? I don’t want any of them. I only want-”

“Don’t finish that sentence.” I interrupt. “Look,” I say as I open the door to my room. “Just go downstairs and have fu-” Before I can finish my sentence Silas has me by the arm and is leading me back downstairs.

“Guys, I think it’s about time to pack up and leave.” Silas announces.

Everyone’s quiet. No one says a word for a few minutes.

“Why?” One of the girls finally asks.

“I don’t want to go home yet.” Colby says.

I resist the urge to tell him that he’s not welcome here anyways.

“What’s the problem?” Levi finally asks.

I feel awkward now. I open my mouth, but then close it.

“I just don’t want anyone here anymore. It’s getting late anyways. We have school tomorrow. Let’s just leave it at that.” Silas speaks for me.

I’m amazed. Honestly. I never would have thought he’d ask everyone to leave and cover for me.

Levi looks like he’s about to protest, but then I give him a meaningful look and he sighs. “Okay. Time to go everyone.” He tells them.

It takes about ten minutes, but everyone leaves.

“So what’s up? Why did you make everyone leave?” Levi asks Silas.

Silas shrugs. “I just felt like it.” He says. He gives me a wink before walking upstairs.

Levi looks at me. “What’s up with him?” He asks.

I shrug as well. “I have no clue.” I lie, trying to hide my smile.
